I'm an avid reader, writer, reviewer, blogger, podcaster, fangirl. I'm currently doing my GCSEs, and so there isn't always a lot of time for writing, but I always make time to read great stories.
"Love is unexplainable. There are no words for it. You can’t express why you feel so. It just happens," James said. "“Don’t you think that if I had the choice I would have chosen to love someone who didn’t hate me in return?”
“No,” Sirius said simply.
“You’re right.” James said, sighing. “I’m so screwed up, Padfoot.”
The drama-filled romantic tale of Lily and James's mysterious but unfortunate tale. It started with love and ended with death. It makes you wonder about the things they tried to live for. Pre-HBP
Even though I am reading this fic YEARS after you wrote it I still think that (if you're checking the story) you might want some feedback. As weird as this sounds, my favourite part of the fic is the section with Cole as I feel that your writing had progressed so much from the beginning of the story and the character development was great. My least favourite part of the fic is how much you have going on for Lily and James - how many horrible situations they end up in, how many times they break up, etc. I appreciate that these were dark times, but they deserve a little time to be happy :) That said, I really love this fic so please don't take my comment the wrong way! I'll definitely be checking out the sequel.
Summary: Glimpses into Remus Lupin's life at Hogwarts, all trying to answer the question: Is Remus a normal wizard who just has a â€śfurry little problemâ€ť, or is he a werewolf among wizards, trying to fit in where he may never truly belong?
Now with more Snape down the Whomping Willow! Check out Chapter 10: A Highly Amusing Joke and Chapter 11: Skyfall
Even though it is extremely long it's so well written - I've just written my first fic too so I get that you wany feedback. Love your writing style and the way the story flows. -- And as for topic choice, I love Marauder so it's a win-win :)
Author's Response: Yeah, I should probably take that bit off the end of the chapter since I'm not really a newbie to fan fiction anymore, but I'm glad you like my writing. Thanks for the review :)
Can't wait for the next chapter! Hearing this situation from Jame's POV was very interesting and I wanted to punch Snape at several points ;) Anyway, please update soon!
Author's Response: Haha, I also want to punch Snape a lot! I thought James's POV would be cool. He's not quite the hero Harry imagined him to be, but I still think he was pretty heroic, whatever his motivations. Thank you for the review. I'm still working on chapter 12, but I'll try not to make you wait too long! And let me know if you write anything else.
Summary: Nymphadora Tonks lives under a shadow. Both her cousin and her aunt are in Azkaban believed to be in league with Voldemort. She knows Bellatrix deserves to be there- but Sirius?
Remus Lupin is an outsider. Heâ€™d once had three good friends- now two are dead and the third has been locked up for murder and betrayal.
They had met once before, when she was a child, but as Tonks grows up they find themselves thrown together- far too closely for Remusâ€™ comfort. Heâ€™s always yearned for a normal life but knows that is impossible. Can Tonks convince him that he deserves happiness?
Nominated for a 2009 QSQ award in the Best canon Romance category. Thank you.
I love a good bit of Remus/Tonks, and this story is great - enough action to keep the plot going, enough suspense to keep my scrolling down the webpage, and enough romance to make me want more chapters! Please update soon :)
Author's Response: I know I should update, but I'm trying to move into original fiction, so I've put updates on this (and Lions) on hold. Sorry. Thank you very much for reviewing ~Carole~
Summary: A year after the battle, Ron decides that he is ready to propose, and does everything he can to ensure his proposal is just right.
After Hermione says yes however, the happy couple quickly discover that planning the perfect wedding is not always easy, and there are plenty of problems to be overcome before they can finally make it down the aisle.
This is so cute! I had a few tears of my own welling up thanks to the speeches, and this fic was just so very much like them. Great job!
Summary: And there he was. The one boy she could not stand. His messy, jet black hair was ruffled and untidy and his glasses were sitting crooked on his nose. James Potter was here. With Lily. And all her Muggle friends. At a Muggle ski resort. Could things possibly be worse? Oh yeah, Sirius Black is there, too.
I have literally just discovered this fic today and I love it! By the first few chapters I was hooked, and in a way I'm glad I've only found it now because I didn't have to wait between the 21 chapters. However - please write more soon! Even just a resolution to the story would be amazing but I love your writing so please continue!
Summary: Because Tracey Davies wants nothing to do with her brother Roger, she avoids Ravenclaw House. But will she survive in Slytheirn? And is survival even what matters?
A great story that focused on (in my opinion) an original character, of sorts. You developed Tracey really well, and I really enjoyed reading her story.
Ron Weasley is staying at Shell Cottage during the Christmas of 1997. These are the thoughts and feelings that occupy him.This is ahattab33 of Hufflepuff, and this is for the "Watching the Mirror" class on the MNFF Beta Boards.
Really beautiful - I'd love to see another like this from Hermione's POV. Very enlightening as Harry obviously doesn't consider all this, but I just love a bit of Ron/Hermione romance :)
Summary: The more time passes, the more James falls in love with her. Told in seven scenes, this is how James and Lily became James and Lily. *one-shot*
Love, love, love! I particularly like fluff, and James/Lily fluff is the best kind :)
The Wizarding War is over.
Auror training has begun and Harry and Ron find that their lives are centred round London and the Ministry of Magic.
For Ginny and Hermione there is the inevitable return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Their lives are centred round schooling in Scotland.
Do these divided duos have different destinations and divergent destinies? When, where and how can these parted pairings meet? Opportunities are limited to holidays, Hogsmeade visits and school Quidditch matches.
Nominated for: Best Post-Hogwarts (Chaptered) story - Quicksilver Quills 2012
Please, please, please finish this fic! I loved Grave Days and have also really enjoyed this fic, and it would be awesome if you could give it some closure. xx
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I have started waaaay too many stories, and Iâ€™m currently concentrating on finishing Hunters and Prey. When I do, Iâ€™ll get back to this story, honest.-N-
Summary: James Potter is Head Boy and Gryffindor Quidditch captain in his seventh year at Hogwarts. He has three best friends and his life seems perfect--except that Lily Evans, the only girl he's ever loved, can't stand him.
Lily Evans is Head Girl and top of their class. She's always been disgusted by James' arrogance, yet she can't seem to stop blushing when he's around.
As their Head Boy and Girl duties bring them together, can James find a way to win Lily's love?
A Different Kind of Magic has been nominated for the 2011 Quicksilver Quills: Best Canon Romance. Thank you!
I discovered this fic very recently and love every bit of it. I really enjoy the alternate narration and the wonderful descriptions. The only characterisations I haven't completely agreed with is Lily's family situation, but apart from that I completely agree with everything else. Oh and please, please, please update soon!
Your enthusiastic reader, Georgie :)
Author's Response: Thanks! Real life has kept me busy but I'm planning to update soon!!
In the Battle of Hogwarts, Tonks has nothing left but promises to keep.
I'll be back. I promise.
I know that a story's good when I cry a little over it. You used such an emotional situation to your advantage and filled the gaps perfectly. Can't wait to read more!
Summary: What if the characters in the Harry Potter films were portrayedâ€”not by actorsâ€”but by the book versions of themselves, as created by Rowling? How might things unfold on that set? What would the characters think of the changes made from the stories theyâ€™d already lived outâ€¦ to the ones written for the script?
This fic is a series of one-shots, posted as chapters, each from the perspective of a different character who is dealing with the changes occurring between the book and the script.
Holy Movie Canon, Batman! This fic won the 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Chaptered Humor Story. Thanks so, so much!
Great tale - really innovative and cool. I've read nothing else like it before!
Author's Response: Thanks! :)
Summary: He left. Katie Bell has moved on; she loves someone else, but it's not enough – she can't let go of him. When they meet for a drink one night, it can only bring back memories and pain.
A great little fic, with a surprise and some cute moments. I'd just say that it's a bit short to develop much emotion for the reader.
Bachelor life suited Zach Smith just fine, and the lack of expectations on his time and attention suited him even more.
But his life changed in an instant with a knock on the door and an unexpected delivery.
Great plot twist, and I'm loving to see Eloise & Zach's relationship develop, however slowly ;)
Can't wait for the next chapter!
A little late on my response, but I'm glad you're enjoying the story. I like arranging for irresponsible characters to come to an abrupt understanding that the world doesn't revolve around them, hehe.
Thanks for reading!
I love this take on Zacharius' character :)
I chose this method of characterisation because I kind of saw him as a little boy who never quite grew up. Hence the hordes of action men and Quidditch 'memorabilia' (*coughtoyscough*). That's also why I included Eloise in the story; she's a part of his rather shameful past but also has the capability to help make him a better person. They say you shouldn't try to change a person because people don't really change, but I maintain that Zach has it in him but just needs to scrape off a few layers of crust and sweaty socks to find it.
Anyway, there's a new chapter up if you're interested. Thanks for reading. :)
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet
– William Shakespeare
But for Lily and James Potter, it wasn't that simple.
Perfectly concise and funny. A nice little marauder story that fits perfectly into canon.
Summary: I cannot see their bodies, buried beneath the ruins of their life together, but I know they are there. I can imagine their green and hazel eyes, staring into the dark emptiness. It is all I can do to stay upright, filled with equal parts rage and grief as I gaze unseeing at the heartbreaking scene.
How did it come to this?
Author's Response: Thank you for reading! I really appreciate the review! ~Gina :)
Summary: Ron’s point of view through the years when it comes to Hermione. Trust me darling, he uses his eyes more than you could possibly know.
Great fic showing a side to Ron that I've never really noticed.
