Hi, I am 'TheLoonyHermione'.
I love to sing and play guitar. Some of my favorite bands/singers are: The Head and the Heart, Gotye, Taylor Swift, James Taylor, and The Beatles.
And, obviously, I like to write. Harry Potter fanfics are mostly what I write, but I have other stories and fanfics as well - I have one that I'm doing on my own about a boy who lost his best friend, his dog; 3 HP fanfics by myself and 3 with a friend; One Hunger Games Fanfic by myself, one with a friend; and one Warriors fanfic with a friend. I also enjoy writing plays that me and some friends 'star' in.
I'm American but can do a fairly good British accent (I wish I was British...waah) and once someone asked me and my friend which part of the UK we were from...haha!
My favorite books/series are: Harry Potter (duh), the Percy Jackson series (although I found the movie horrendous), and The Hunger Games (I am currently obsessed).
My top 3 favorite sports are: 1. Tennis!! 2. Swimming (if you count that as a sport) 3. Softball (I'm a pitcher :))
My top 3 favorite HP characters are: 1. Neville!!!! Extremely cute!!! Even cuter in the movies!!! 2. Hermione!! I have been told that I sound like her (while speaking in a British accent), that I have the same personality as her (I do, however, think that I am more loud and rule-breaking, and also not quite as obnoxious), and even once that I look like her (which I seriously doubt, and I seriously thought the person who said that was insane). 3. Uh....can't pick between these guys...Lupin, Tonks, Snape, Sirius, Dumbledore, and Luna. There may be more, but I can't think of them at the moment...
My BFFLE is Kreacher Feacher!! She's amazingly loony, and I think you should read her stories!!
Guess what? I also love reviews!
Summary: The people in the Burrow learn of Mad-Eye's death, and Tonks reminisces over their time together.
Great story! So sad, I never would have thought Tonks and Moody were that close!
Summary: Professor Lupin and Hermione spend some time together doing what they do best - teaching and learning - when Hermione asks Lupin to teach her how to do a Memory Modification Charm.
I really like both Remus and Hermione, and your summary really interested me.
'She looked at a creature she recognized as a grindylow in a murky tank near one wall; it made faces at her and she glared at it.' This seemed a bit out of character for Hermione; I would expect her to be more interested in the creature than glare at it. Maybe I'm wrong, but I just think that glaring at a creature isn't something that she would do, even if it was making faces at her.
I really liked how you made Lupin so patient with Hermione. He really seems like a good teacher for her.
'“That's part of the magic of the Pensieve,” Lupin explained. “It brings forward an accurate replaying of events from an objective view.”' I liked this part. I don't know if it's canon or not, but I've always thought about this. It has confused me a bit, and even if it isn't in canon, I think that this is a good idea of what the Pensieve does.
'The substance remaining in the basin swirled very swiftly, almost angrily, as though it had been robbed of something, then settled back to its slow pace.' This is a very good description and I like the idea of it. It emphasizes the idea that many magical objects have a mind of their own. I really liked this description.
Overall, this was a very good story. Good job!
Hufflepuff Albus Potter was a firm believer that it was a fact of nature and a rite of passage to torment one's sibling. And who better than his nerdy, Ravenclaw little sister? Her messy hair and stupid pile of books... she so had it coming.
But Lily had other ideas.
Hahaha that was awesome!!! Go Lily!!!
Thank you very much. :P
Big brothers are made for being cut down to size (Jess: I have had plenty of practice). Lily's revenge was slightly cruel but justified in the end. I'm glad you stopped by and read this story. We had fun writing it!

Summary: Sometimes a change of heart can lead to the best of things.
Yes, this was a bit corny, but I liked it!
'He was obnoxious
A habit deep like third-degree' I think this described James really well. You did a good job capturing both Lily and James throughout the whole poem.
'He jumped in joy
His face a red sheen
Felt as if he’d had caffeine' Haha this gave me a funny image! I really liked how vivid you made the whole poem, I could really see it happening, especially in your description.
One piece of crit:
'She had to act soon;
On him she was keen
It was finally time for them to convene'. I liked this, but I think in the last line, deleting 'it was' would make it flow better. Then again, I'm not much of a poet myself, so feel free to not take that advice. Great poem!
Summary: “And quite honestly,” he turned away from the painted portraits, thinking now only of the four-poster bed lying waiting for him in Gryffindor Tower, and wondering whether Kreacher might bring him a sandwich there, “I’ve had enough trouble for a life time.”*
In search of some peace and quiet, The Gryffindor boys are reunited after the Final Battle.

Nominated for Best General Story in the Quicksilver Quills 2011!
This was great!!! I love the Neville/Luna part, and I've always made myself think that they dated for a while before Luna married Rolf, just to make myself happy. I think that it's great that they all had a normal night in Hogwarts after that, even though I always expected that they would go home that night. Great job!
There's something Lily's been waiting to hear since Harry said his first word.
Written in anticipation for Deathly Hallows, part two.
Nominated for the 2011 Best Dark/Angsty QSQ. Thank you, Maple!
Summary: Sirius, Remus, and Harry share memories and stories as they read through letters the Marauders and friends wrote to their future selves while at school.
I loved Sirius's letter, it was hilarious and so much like him! Good job.
Author's Response: Haha thanks! Sirius always intrigued me, which is why he's narrating my HP prequel series. This story was an exercise in figuring out my characters and my world. The series will be up eventually, I'm currently working on the plot!
Summary: A poem about how Harry feels as if he's doing everything wrong and is not worthy of the trust Dumbledore has placed in him.
Wow! This was really good, I like your style - it's simple but flows nicely. I don't know this song, but it didn't really matter for me to enjoy the poem. A few bits of crit:
'You put so much trust in me.
Now I don’t know how'
I think this should be 'You put so much trust in me,
And now I don't know how'.
'I thought you perfect.
I thought you perfect.'
soo, something about these lines bothers me. I think changing them to either "I had thought you perfect' or "I thought you were perfect" would make it better. Unless I"m reading it wrong.
Summary: As Albus' parents wave him off from Platform nine and three-quarters they are happy in the knowledge that their son's time at Hogwarts will be a far less trying one than their own. However, in due course, Albus will discover that there are those who would wish differently. As Albus and his friends Rose, Frank, Effie, Theron, Xander and the mysterious Tristan make their way through the year they slowly discover who is friend and who is foe and most importantly, that not everyone is as they seem...
The sorting seemed good but very similar to the first HP book. If there had been some change, such as Cliona Finnigan getting in another house or something, it would have been better in my opinion. Either way, great story so far and good luck writing more!
I love the suspense so much that I hate it!!!! If you get what I mean........
Even though James got hurt, this was a really good chapter!!! Great job!!
This was a very good chapter. I liked the Halloween party in the beginning, and the mysteriousness with the Effie mystery. Great job and I can't wait to read more!
Great chapter, although I found the conversation near the end was a little hard to follow.
GREAT mysteriousness with Malfoy!!! I like how you made him seem to have changed over the years.
Summary: The last unwritten chapter of Deathly Hallows, tying up loose ends. Here it is: not as good as Rowling would have written it, but a softer ending all the same.
Good story! I nearly cried in the George part, take that as a compliment! I also love how Kreacher was sad about Dobby dying and Dobby and Winky's child! And poor Dennis! I also liked how Malfoy stood, I wouldn't have thought of that. I was, however, surprised that Ginny was crying. I loved the part when Fleur was pregnant! Also great job with Petunia and the Dursleys. Great story!!
Summary: Lily-centric. When she was little, she hated her name. It wasn’t quite right, not for her, and although she didn’t know exactly what it was that was missing, she knew that something was missing.
She’d listen with abated breath to the nicknames others gave her, hoping she’d find the answers in them. In all her short life, she’d been called many different things, and she was determined that at least one of them would fit.
This was a fantastic story! At first I didn't quite see the point, but afterword I definitally did. One typo I noticed, in the part where James stopped calling her 'love', you said, "She'd dodged into an opening between two building and prepared to Disapparate......" and I think instead of building it should be buildings. My favorite parts were the Lily/Severus and Lily/James relationships. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks! So glad you liked it, and thanks for pointing out the typo.
Summary: The last time Harry had ever seen his Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon, and cousin Dudley had been during their uncomfortable parting, shortly before his seventeenth birthday. But surely, after sixteen solid years of sharing the same home, four people can't just forget each other.
This was good!! I especially liked Dudley's reaction.
I have also always wanted to know this story. I love Remus and stories about his childhood. Did you make up the thing about the wizarding law being that witches and wizards have to be home schooled? Also I don't know if young wizards can try to do something magical and succeed, but it's your story! I also liked your description for his transformation. I am also currently reading The Hobbit! Great story!
Author's Response: I heard it from a bunch of HP fan accounts that J.K. Rowling said they had to be home-schooled. Thank you again :)
Summary: My version of Ron proposing to Hermione. Enjoy!
Oh my gosh! This was the sweetest thing ever! Sure, it may have been a bit sappy, but it really was a lot like what Ron would do. I think you captured all of the characters really well, especially Ron. 'Swish and Flick' This is my favorite part of it. It's so perfect for their relationship, and I think that it would be something just like Hermione would wear. And the fact that Ron knew that made me smile :D. I loved the end, too. Very funny!
Summary: This is a story about a love of books. It is a story about a boy and a girl united by this love.
Perhaps there's a reason why Hermione Granger values frienship so strongly. Perhaps there's a reason why Hogwarts: A History means so much to her. And perhaps there's more to her life before Hogwarts than we have been told.
This is her story.
This story was nominated for a Quicksilver Quill Award 2012: Best General Story!
This is great!!! I am a big hermione fan and at the time I'm writing a story similar to this. I like the part when Jamie gets excited that Hermione is going to help him. I also liked the ending paragraph.
