Bio:

Hello all!

I'm Lana, I'm 17 and from Bath in England.

I use MNFF to read fanfiction, not to post at. But now you're here, perhaps I have reviewed your story? I tend to do that a lot. And if I was harsh I apologise, my reviews are always constructive and aimed at others imporoving their writing.

I am also a Beta and would happy to help if you contact me.

As you have probably guessed, I am obsessed with Harry Potter (these books - don't know if you've heard of them).

My other true passions in life are dancing (I go to dance school), music and playing the drums. And of course friends are quite high up there too!

At school I do Dance, Englsih Lit and French, although my french is v. poor!

Some more about me...
(Noooooo! Not more!)

Fave quote: "Friends are the family you choose". Hello to Callum, Ryan, Lissy & Korinna if you're reading this, but since I don't plan on you finding out about my Harry Potter obsession anytime soon, it is very unlikely.

Fave character: That's a toughy. In fanfiction, I like James and Sirius, but in the books I think it would have to be Ron. ,Afterall, he is part in my opinion the BEST SHIP! (see below).

Ships: I am a die hard Ron / Hermione shipper. I also like Harry/Ginny but I've gone off it slightly since Half Blood Prince.

My favourite type of fics are Marauder Era and James/Lily (as long as cliches are avoided), or anything that isn't covered in the books; missing scenes and such.

Fave HP Book: Order of the Phoenix, hands down!

Fave TV Show: The OC.

And, last but not least - DUMBLEDORE IS DEAD! Now get over it! Clearly he died for a reason!

Adios x

Wow this is great! I love it! This should be a humor fic, I was laughing so much... pretty much all the way through. Fabby, methinks. Jk should consider putting it in 7- so what if it's contraversial for a children's book? You get a big fat 10.

Date: 09/05/05 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue: A Peaceful Life

A very well written story, and original too; not completely unique but significantly different from others that I have read. I am not usually a fan of Ginny Neville, but I think it really works here and completely understand her choice to be with him. I think that you handled the issue of rape very senitively, and cannot wait for the next chapter! Faithful fan; Seriah xx What are you planning on updating?

Author's Response: 11/10 ~ I just sent the next chapter off to beta! Thank-you for your very nice review. I struggled with the rape scene and I didn't like doing that to poor Harry and Ginny, but it's good to hear from my readers that it came across well.

 

Summary: Seventh year sequel to Power of Emotion. Harry is recovering from his captivity, but he’s hiding how much it’s effecting him. With his powers increasing, and Voldemort now aware of the prophecy, can Harry find the secret to destroying him before Voldemort learns of the existence of these ancient texts? Would this be HP fanfiction if it were that easy?

Hey, I love this story! I realise that now HBP is all out that it doesn't particularly fit in with the Canon... but what fanfiction ever fits in flawlessly? I hope you arent going to abandon this, because it's a really original idea that I've never seen before, and therefore adore. Get writing! Seriah xxx

 

Fool Me Once... by Crickette
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 208]

Summary: “You were the first thing they took from me,” whispered Sirius. “My only happy memory. I haven’t thought of you in fourteen years.”

“And I’ve had to think about you everyday. For fourteen years,” said Miriam, darkly. Her voice trembled. “I win.”

Miriam Daniels had lost everything she’d ever loved the day Sirius Black was sentenced to a life in Azkaban. Now, years later, she needs to find the strength to accept a past drastically different from the one that she had just begun to acknowledge as truth. Will the most celebrated Healer in England be able to nurse back to health a broken heart and shattered dreams? Or will a secret kept locked away for fourteen years drive Miriam even further away from the man who once adored her?

A/N: A/R with aspects of MWPP-era-ness! I hope you like it!

NEW CHAPTER! I really hope you enjoy it.

Wow. What can I say? Wow. This story was totally amazing from start to finish. I would have reviewed every chapter, but I only just got an account. This was captivating, deep, humerous, chilling and beautiful all at the same time. Most definately the best Marauder fanfiction I have ever read. I am one of those people who is often pleased when Peter is missed out of a fic, but I was suprised by how much I enjoyed his character in your story. The pacing of his descent from friend to betrayer was done very well, as were his reasons. Characterization throughout the whole thing was just amazing. Your writing style is very different to JK's, but in terms of plot and pace this could easily be her own prologue. In fact, I can't imagine events going any other way now. I realise that the characters in youtr story are out of school and therefore older than when most other authors write about them (ie in school), but they seemed so much more mature and real. The whole thing was done with an amazing amount of tact and grace. I felt so sorry for Remus and Sirius at the end. And your songs go so well with each chapter, especially Full Of Grace at the end. This is probably far too long alread,y but I cannot compliment this story enough. Truly superb. ~ Lana ~

Author's Response: What can I say, more like! I'm not sure my fic was quite as good as you made it out to be, but wow! Thankyou for all the complinments! This review has made me so happy! I LOVE the song Full Of Grace. It is also on Buffy, when she kills Angel. You are talking to a BIG BUFFY FAN here. This is going to be such a short answer, and I feel really bad because your review was so long, but I really don't know what to say apart from 'Thankyou!' So, thankyou! Heehee, Lexi xx

 

First by Hallie Black

Summary: James Potter is an obnoxious, arrogant prat. Lily Evans is stubborn and a bit arrogant herself. James loves Lily. Lily hates James. Will James ever conquer the love of his life when his each and every attempt always fails spectacularly? Humor is guaranteed thanks to the one and only, Sirius Black!

OMG. I'm so glad I came across this; it's so excellent, and extremely funny might I add. Well, where to start? I love how this is not totally conventional... i.e. they start seventh year, James immediately changes and then Lily falls for him, and my the end of the third chapter they're in love. It's much more fun and realistic your way. And I love how arroagant James and Sirius are - I really feel that that's just what they're meant to be like - this fits in so well with the characters that we see in the Pensieve in OotP, compared to fanfiction James and Sirius, who are usually quite different. Fave quote - er - so many! But I think it has to be the whole Sirius Black doll thing, that was pure genius! No critisism, and no mistakes that I could notice grammar wise. Can't wait for the next chappie, update soon! I can't beleive I didn't discover this fic before! *does happy jig* 10, and that is coming from an extremely harsh/ critical reviewer (normally). So, carrying no with Lexy's advice - stop watching TV and write! Your story is amazing so far, and I know that if it keeps going this way it will be one of the best lily James fics I have ever read.

Author's Response: THANKS!!!!!! Hope you like the rest as well!

Ooooh. I really like this story... as cheesy as they can be, there aren't enough songfics around anymore! I like the evil mother and unanswered letters twist on the plot. I've never really given Hermone's family any thought as they feature so little in the books. It reminded me of The Notebook a bit. I like the songs you've chosen so far. If Ron is going to carry on being upset and such 'Vermillion Pt. 2' lyrics by Slipknot would work well. I'm a bit put off by the fact that Herione has severed ties with Harry for something he didn't do. I'm not sure that's realistic, after all she invested over the years in their friendship. Also, will we be finding out what happened to end Harry and Ginny's relationship? If not, I understand, this is a Ron Hermione story afterall. Good work so far, 8/10.

Author's Response: Yeah, you really don\'t see to many songfics anymore. Anyway, to answer your Harry/Ginny question... there might be a reference or two in later chapters, I dont know yet. Dont get your hopes up though. Im glad you like the story though =)

Hey! I'm new to this site, and yours was one of the first stories I read. This is great so far, I love it! You pick really unusual aspects to write about as well, like Werewolf registration. I also thought that the carachterisation was done very well, and that you touched upon a very dark topic in a non-angsty way. You didn't make it completely miserable, and there were several things that made me laugh out loud. I loved McGonagall's meeting, in particular. ~Seriah

Author's Response: Greetings, Seriah! Welcome to the wonderful world of MNFF. May you have many pleasurable hours in front of your computer screen. I'm glad you didn't want to slit your wrtists after reading it, and did, dare i say it... *laugh!*. Yay! Check out chappie 2!!

 

Summary: Meet James Potter, a clever, somewhat mischievous, popular student at Hogwarts. He takes every situation in stride and has everything under control, except one: Lily Evans, an amazingly beautiful and intelligent individual. He loves her more than anything, but she despises him more than anything, and a not-so-impressive run-in late at night with her leaves James thinking that chasing after Lily might be hopeless. Then, a series of events happen in James' life, which is topped off by an unexpected visitor that makes his sixth year too sweet to remember.

Oo er. I must say, I was going off this story a little in the middle... I wasn't too keen on the Audrey plotline/character, and found that quite hard to read believably. On the other hand, this chapter and the one or two before it with the Snape Prank have totally gripped me! Especially the lst scene here. Wow. I think that is actually the best first LJ kiss I have read. I feel really happy now! So, props on that. Good work. Can't wait tohear more. This has totally grasped me back in to your story, and I've added you to my 'favourites'.

OMG I love this story!!! please update soon. I don;t know what it is, but this is a little different from normal LJ fics. Mmmm. I'm not sure. Maybe a little more marauders needed, though, but I really like all the interaction between Lily and james, that's done really well. I do not lie when I say I need and update! For my health... please. Seriah xxx

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for the flattering review! It's greatly appreciated. The biggest compliment I feel I can receive is when somebody says my story is unique, and that's what you did. Thanks a bunch, I'm glad you like it! I'll update a.s.a.p!

Author's Response: Awww, thanks! The last sentence I actually added when I already submitted it, and it just kind of came to mind. I'm glad it intrigued you, and thanks for adding me to your favourites. Chapter two is already in the queue!

Amazing, well structured, realistic, believable. Wow! I love it. The characters are in character, and the dialogue between the Malfoys and Voldemort was superb in particular. Well done! I can tell this is going to be an amazing story.

Author's Response: Thanks so much, Seriah! I'll do my best to update soon!

Oooh. And the 'drop a bomb' line. That was pure genius!

Author's Response: Considering how long it took for me to come up with that whole bit with Harry trying to tell Malfoy to drop the decoy detonator, you have NO IDEA how nice it is to hear that!

 

Summary: Every story must have an end. Harry Potter must now face the greatest adventure of his life. Lives will be lost and love will be found. The only difference between a muggle and a wizard is his ability to believe. Based on what occur in book seven.

I thought that was great. You carried on well with the atmosphere of the Death Eater circle that we glimpsed in Chapter Two of HBP. As Maeve said, I thought that your characterisation was spot on, very impressed.

There were no shocking errors that I noticed, although one that I did pick up on was “Do not mistake my mercy for weakness. Next time I will not be so patience,” Voldemort hissed.. It shoulfd be patient instead of patience. Sorry if that sounded really picky, because I thought that this was at a much higher level of writing standard than lots of the other emerging Book Seven stories that I have read so far. I'm off to read chappie 2 ... hope you update soon! (although with all these queue problems, who knows how long that will be!)

Aaaah! Wasn't Hermione sweet towards Harry in the end! I thought this chapter was really great, Carolyn. The wedding was done particularly well, and you intoduced some key themes for the rest of your plot, i.e Dobby & Dumbledore's portait. Now for concrit. Like you said the Mods mentioned in the email, I think that you may have moved Mrs. Weasley's forgiveness of Percy too fast. Perhaps to remedy this you could show some intense conficlt between Percy and his younger brothers, who would not be as willing to accept him back into the family. Or Fred and George could play a prank on him that goes wrong, causing him to be basly hurt, thus the family realises how sad they woudl be if Percy died! Err... ok ... bad idea... got a bit carried away there. I found one error- she could b safer than all of us where it should be 'be'. Not really very major, is it!? That was great and I#m sure chappie four will be just as good, I'm off to read it now! Lana xxx

That was really great, I have to say I really enjoyed it! Hope to see you update soon. The leaving was perfect, not too violent like some I have seen and at the same time the Dursleys did not make a dramatic apology for Harry's ill treatment, something I feel is very unrealistic. I think that this is a very promising story, and I am looking forward to where you go with it. Seriah xxx *adds to favourites* Wow, I am eating chocolate. In fact, since that was so great (story), have a virtual piece...

Author's Response: Yummy! Thanks for the actual feed back, keep reading! so far my fav chapter is three (The Wedding) o, should say 2 much... :P
