Born in Oct 97. I absolutely love talking to people, so come chat with me from time to time. (even if you are a male) I have no problem beta-ing something, please feel free to contact me =) I ship anyone I feel like at the time
I will read on. I don't know why. A strange feeling compels me. So much ooc. So much. The only words I said whist reading the 1st chapter is What the fuck? I said that alot.
Brief, but full of meaning. You have a way of expressing what it's like to have a homosexual sibling, and the reprimands of it. I do wish it was longer with more depth, but that's probably personal preference. Overall 4/5
Somewhat lacking in detail, but nice in a tragic way. 3/5
This is actually one of the most accurate Harry/Draco parings that I've seen. They love each other, but with Draco's controlling nature and Harry's resistance, it doesn't work out. Top marks! =)
Kinda brief, and left me more confused than ever. Sequel?
Author's Response: Yeah, I wrote this quite quickly I think and I meant to leave it quite open as I had no idea what was coming next as I was writing. Sorry, there won't be a sequel as I've moved away from fanfiction now. Thanks xx
Very nice twist at the end. It had a natural progression, although I think it's a little OOC for Hermione to ignore the consequences of something that major. But all in all, a 3/5
She stares out across the great expanse of water.
He watches her longing gaze.

You have a very nice (and rare) way of expressing harry's and hermione's feelings: they don't want to do it, yet they must. A very nice read, 5/5
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It's lovely to see people stumbling across this fic again :)
Ginny Weasley Potter is newly married, but matrimony was proving to be more difficult than she had ever expected. Harry was nearly always working, and her dreams of wedded bliss were slowly slipping though her fingers.
And then came Gabrielle Delacour, an incidental acquaintance and an unlikely ally. Gabrielle tries to help Ginny mend her soul and her marriage, but slowly, Ginny realises that there is more to this newfound friendship than she had ever thought possible.
This is fantastic; however, before I will continue, I will point out the bad, and then bury you with the great. A few minor misspellings, that once or twice gave me pause, but didn't stop the overall flow of the piece. I didn't like how quickly Gabrielle accepted Ginny's approach: it just felt to...easy, I guess you could say. I also didn't like the time frame. Doubting their marriage after only a week (ish)? Just seems a little rushed for me. However, this coin does have two sides, and I will show you the happier one. OMFG I flipping loved this! The naturalness of it all. Ginny feeling sexually deprived (your exact words I think) and Gabby being there for her, even barely knowing her. I feel like this could totally happen. And Harry in Ginny's dreams and thoughts constantly? And her realization once she slept with Gabby and the guilt she feels? I can't get enough of this! I especially loved when you were pointing out that Harry can sometimes get a little clueless about relationships. It was so true to the Potterverse!!! I actually laughed at that part. Very well done!
Don't be sad!!
Very nicely done. It tied up really well, and I think you did a good job. I can always go to you if I need a really good story
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the praise and for leaving a review. It's much appreciated. ~Carole~
They cannot keep doing this; it is only a matter of whose resolve will break first. They may have grown distant, their friendship may never mend, but something else has begun. Similarly to the sultry dance so reminiscent of their stolen kisses, drifting apart is only the beginning.

Winner for 2011 QSQ - Best Same Sex Pairing, along with Equinox Chick's Monochrome, one of the most beautiful stories on this site. Thank you immensely for nominating/voting!
Huge, huge thank you to Natalie/hestiajones for beta-ing this.
I will always have the time. This is a very powerful slash, and I will explain why. You convey what can, and probably has happened to friends. "I like kissing you...but I don't want it in the long run". This is very different from alot of femmeslashes in the way that, it embraces a future of what might happen, instead of worring about now. This actually has the chance of a sequel (and if you already made one I apologize) It isn't nessacarly dark, but it is emotionally deeper than some other slashes. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write me a review! I'm sorry the response is so late, college life is harder than I expected :\ . Anyway, I am so happy you liked this fic! I really wanted to explore the friendship aspect of it, because I love the idea of being friends first and romantic partners second, but it always makes it so much harder when things go awry. I don't have a sequel up for this yet, but I've written a few drabbles about their future and referenced it in a few stories, so there is a high probability I will return to writing about them in the future :). Thank you so much again!
As you have said, it is silly; but enjoyable for those who want a quick laugh
Author's Response: Thank you. Sometimes we need laughs rather than deep - Carole
I feel like it was too brief, with little conflict. It had potential, but the execution was lacking. Great try tho!
And I told him that I will
When the river runs uphill
And the fish begin to fly
Or the day before I die.
Daphne Greengrass lives in a home that harbors no love, only motives. Pansy Parkinson is trapped in a marriage with a man she hardly knows. Moral dilemmas are rather unpleasant things, especially when you have to chose between yourself and those you hold closest.
Wow, I've never seen Daphne depicted this way. Although nice bit of foreshadowing there. I hope that you write more, this was, again, very good. The irony doesn't escape me, though, that in marriage, it's normally the man dreading it. Nice bit of work nonetheless!
There is no love between them; there is only passion and burning desire.
But for Susan, this is enough. She has loved and lost before, and she can’t handle losing again.
The lust is much easier to deal with.

mmm, make you melt? then how does it feel when I tell you that this is wonderful? that this is very well written and explains that this is probably how some relationships end irl? you like that?
Author's Response: That is so sweet of you - thank you so much! I actually expanded this into a chaptered fic called Up in Flames (still on the fire theme :P). xx Ariana
I freaking cried at the end. I couldn't help it. Damn
Author's Response: You're certainly not the only one who had that reaction. I'm flattered that my story affected you so deeply. Thank you for reading it!!
Until near twelve the strange girl all at once
Guilt-stricken halts, pales, clings to the prince
As amid the hectic music and cocktail talk
She hears the caustic ticking of the clock.*
The students at Hogwarts have left for their Christmas holidays, but in the castle, a celebration of a betrothal is taking place. However, one woman watches the couple, waiting for midnight.

This is babewithbrains of Ravenclaw writing for the Great Hall Cotillion challenge.ZOMG. This story has been nominated for a 2012 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Same-Sex Pairing. Thank you!
Well. That was by far the most interesting Founder story I've read. Really unexpected. Still quite lovely!
Author's Response: I'm responding to this a year too late, but thank you so much for the review! :D I am so glad you enjoyed this story - it definitely was fun to write. I appreciate the kind words.
Cho Chang is contently married to the Muggle man of her dreams (or so she tells herself). The Wizarding World and all the pain it brought is far behind her -- at least, that is what she believes until she bumps into an old classmate.
Pansy Parkinson weaves her way through bars and men (in that order) and tries to forget which side she was on. She needs help, but she isn’t sure how.
Perhaps, it takes recognising sorrow to move on to bliss.
This story is for the GH Cotillion Challenge. Thank you, Jess and Viv, for setting such an ingenious challenge!

This is one of the most accurate rarepairs I've read. There is no love (not obvious anyway) but there is a need for each other, a dependance born of circumstance, and that makes it all the more believable.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! I really enjoy exploring different kinds of love,and this one was one of my favorite to write - a symbiotic sort of thirst for something more. I am so glad you liked it! xx Ariana
Very nice twist inserting yourself and J.K. Rowling in the story
A nice little rarepair. Could've been longer, with more plot, but I enjoyed it enough.
