I'm a 19 year old, who's been part of mugglenet fanfitcion since 2006. It's been an experience posting up my stories here - I've grown fond of my readers and I can't thank you guys enough for reading and reviewing my fics!
More about me then! I'm half indian, half korean, born in Africa and currently living in Dubai. It's truly Harry Potter that has inspired me to read more and write, so hats off to J.K rowling for that! I'll soon be off to university, but I promise to keep writing fanfictions as long as I've got plots in my head =D

Journey On Water:
I started this story back in 2006 and I honestly can't believe how far I've gotten with it. I never imagined how popular it would get - the response this fic has gotten has been absolutely fantastic and I owe it to my readers! It's my first Dramione fic and i'm actually pretty proud of it. My first few chapters, I admit, are rather immature, but future chapters do reflect how my writing style has improved.
Thanks to some of my readers, Journey On Water has been translated to Chinese and Vietnamese. I'll soon post the links here; however, if you'd like to take a look, you can contact me and i'll send the link directly. *smiles*
This one-shot fanfic occured to me while I was listening to Far Away, by Nickeback, in the car. I day dream a lot, so I had these random scenes in my head and voila! The story was born! The plot seemed to fit with the lyrics, so I just had to write. This one was fun to pen down! I didn't want Harry and Ron in the way, because then things would get all complicated, so I got to focus a whole lot more on Draco and Hermione, which was great. I hope to write more one-shots. I'm just waiting for a nice plot to come along! =D
Hello! My first ever review for this story and I have to say I'm enjoying it through and through! You've kept Hermione and Draco in character and thats no easy feat - I really enjoyed reading Draco's arrogant/annoying side and I hope you continue to portray their personalities as well as you've done so far! *smiles* I'll be waiting patiently for the next chapter..! Cheers!
Author's Response: I\'m happy you\'re enjoying it and I\'m glad that Hermione and Draco are in character - that\'s sometimes tough to do! Thanks for your review!!
Truly, truly awesome! I'm a sucker for masquerade balls and you portrayed it brilliantly in this chapter! The only thing that caught me was the fact that Hermione was willing to persue said 'activities'. She knew what Draco meant and her agreeing to it without much hesitation just doesn't seem like her.
Other than that...I loved this chapter! Their kiss in the middle of all that chaos was awesome too =D *winks*
Author's Response: Good point on the potential OOC-ness. I\'ll attribute it to hormones for now. ;-)\r\nAnd I\'m glad you liked the kiss. It was really fun to write.
What can I say? You've got me completely hooked...! It's fantastic how you've portrayed them - the'yre very in character, especially Draco. The last sentence was my favourite for some odd reason. It kind of hints at his 'other side' and how reluctant he is about showing it - lovely! I'll be waiting to see what you've got in store for us next! Cheers!
Author's Response: Yay! I\'m glad Draco is in character - that\'s always so stressful!! Glad you like the story so far. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Adored it! Thank you for such a fun read =D
I read this fic when you first had it up and was flabbergasted when I couldn't find it anywhere! I am SO happy you're back! You had gone pretty far with Luna's Truth or Dare and I can't wait till you submit the rest of them! I'm also eagerly waiting for New Azkaban! I was waiting for the chapter to come up when you had suddenly disappeared...Anyway! What I really wanted to say was: Welcome back! =D
Author's Response: Thanks for the welcome! I\'m just so appreciative that so many of you came back to read it! And I\'m glad you mentioned New Azkaban, because the first chapter has just been re-posted! These were my two favorite stories so I\'m really enjoying reposting them and being able to finish them. Thank you so much for the kind note!
*jumps up and down in excitement* I am SO glad you finally put this one up! I was hooked onto it the first time you had put it up and was...well, surprised when I couldn't find it anymore! But your back safe and sound and your fics are trickling back in - keep up the awesome job! *gives high five*
Author's Response: *High-five*! I\'m just glad some of you have returned to read my story! I hope more people come find it again. As dark as it is, I enjoy writing this story the most... I guess I have a dark side!
This is absolutely, positively, completely fantabulous! I wish I'd thought of something this brilliant - I truly love this idea and it's pretty cool how you actually sound like Draco lol..!! How could I possibly resist not participating? Well, here goes:
I've been trying to get in touch with you for the past few weeks, but apparently you've been busy with your mushy-gushy advice column, responding to lovey-dovey letters and coochie-cooing the girls! Why didn't you let me in on this, mate?! Anyway, I came across the Third Issue and was pleasently surprised when I read some some of the letters - particularly the ones referring to me (yes, I do know that B.Z is Blaise Zambini, people!). No wonder girls have been randomly smacking my bottom - you've been giving them advice! Speaking of which, you know that 'Blaise-ing Bedroom-Eyes' that you apparently taught me? Well, it doesn't seem to be working is it? The girls aren't sashaying over to me, but instead they're asking you for advice!
I just wand to take this chance to say: Ladies! Don't be shy to approach me! Stop writing to Drakie-bloody-poo and instead, come look for me sometimes! Also, I'll find out who you naughty witches are - I never forget the faces of those who have touched my backside!
Well that was fun! If you do happen to post this up, feel free to correct any grammar mistakes and so on!! Keep up the awesome work!! (Notice how the letter starts off with 'To Draco' and ends with 'With love'...!!) *winks*
Author's Response: Hey there, sunshine! You've just reminded me... have you updated Journey on Water yet? I was left at that kiss... and Hermione leaving! I haven't checked back recently, but I'm going to try in a moment. And they say *I* write naughty cliffies! Thanks for the letter, I love it. I can't wait to work it into Issue the Fifth. (Issue the Fourth is currently in the queue). Very clever! Take care!
