I am 19 years old and I like Novel Length fanfiction. Not too big on Romance fics compared to Humor and Adventure. I can only seem to write humor myself, and never anything too lengthy.
Summary: While New Year's eve parties rage on all around him, a tragic hero is trapped in depression. Only one person can free him.
Written for Challenge #1. Ever so slight HBP spoilers. Forum Name: skarm House: Ravenclaw
I have seen you writing for many months now, skarmy, and I think this is your best work to date. A lot of your other work comes off masterful but strained. I suppose that is what happens when you have to organize an expansive plot and keep things in order. It is not always easy. One-shots suit you well, that is for certain. The entire symbolism at the end was great, highlighted by the scarf. I know the scarf is not the only part of it, but it is the best one, I believe.
Summary: A collection of fun and pointless Holiday fics.
1st Story: It's Christmas. Kreacher had to deal with an uninvited guest.
2nd Story: It's Christmas Eve and the Weasley twins has decided to leave some special gifts.
That was very good. At least the good ole rhyme time was. Kreacher's singing was quite amusing.
Certainly one of the better Challenge 6 fics I have read, I like the fact that you took a challenge that was filled with seriousness and turned it into something with good humor.
Good Kreacher 'accent,' by the way.
I was wondering why she was asian, but if my gut is correct it was so you could rhyme 'song.'
Author's Response: Yes, it's for the rhyme *grin* was in the mood for light pointless fun and this just seemed to be the challenge wherein that's possible since I've already doe the 12 days of Christmas.
Thank for the review :)
Summary: The Second War has ended, and several months have passed since the Final Battle. It is now the night of 31 December, and while the rest of the world is out celebrating the dawning of a Voldemort-free year, one young man is preparing to end his life. He has lost everything he cared for, including the love of his life, and can see no reason to continue living. Will someone come and save him before it is too late?
Written for “Winter Snows Challenge One: Redemption” by megan_lupin of Gryffindor.
I liked this quite a bit. It's a fresh angle on the whole redemption take and it had a lot of the ideas I love in a story. I like your description of Harry as he wrote the letter, it's apt and very realistic. Although, as soon as I read that every drop must be taken I rolled my eyes a bit, but that cannot be helped, I read far too many stories. My one problem with this story is "pain worse than any Cruciatus." That is just so corny to me, and those kind of lines will always be a pet peeve of mine. Nonetheless, excellent fic.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading, as well as taking the time to review. This idea seriously just popped into my mind, and so it did not have a lot of time to work out. Also, it is my first foray (sp?) at writing something like this.
