At the time I am mostly writing poetry, but I am planning to write a few one-shots or something like that whenever I get the chance.
If you're reading this, then I feel pretty important and famous, that there at least some interest in my writing and/or personality.
Unfortunately, you will not find much of the latter here, as I don't want to go into purpotless facts. Rather, this provision is a facetious excuse for me to saturate this page with as many voluminous words achievable. =)
Sometimes I quit writing fanfiction for awhile, not sure why, it just sort of happens. I run out of ideas or something, but I come back eventually once I get a smack on the head.
Reviews are an odd thing. Everyone likes them, (most) people are too dignified to beg for them and few people give them. Please spare the confusion and spread the love, stories with no reviews should be reviewed on the spot.
Summary: This story starts during the summer between Harry's fifth and sixth year. It follows his journey from the skinny, guilt-ridden Boy Who Lived to the Man Who Would Defeat Voldemort. Some H/G and R/Hr romance. Chapter 50 is up!!!! STORY COMPLETE!!! Written pre-HBP. This story no longer follows cannon.
Long time reader, first time reviewer. Amazing fanfic, definately one of the best I've red on this site. Can't wait until the next chapter! (character death?)
Summary: At the start of Harry’s sixth year, the wizarding world is falling further under Voldemort’s evil control. Fudge has declared a draconian State of Emergency, but he is little more than Lucius Malfoy’s corrupt puppet. But when Malfoy seeks to impose Voldemort’s racist Pureblood ideology upon Hogwarts - the last bastion of the Light - the students rise up in revolt.
The spirits of the great Witches and Wizards of the Light, fearful for the future of the Wizarding world, send Harry and his friends a powerful ally, to help them in the desperate struggle to save Hogwarts and the wizarding world from impending darkness.
An epic struggle of Good against political corruption, racism, elitist ideology ... and Ultimate Evil. The roller-coaster plot twists and turns into the past and future – and Nightmare Realities, where the terrible consequences of failing to stop Voldemort are chillingly revealed.
A story to fascinate the intelligent reader ... philosophy, politics, time-travel, romance, humour ... and a few very cunning ideas.
Ah, what a great story. The plot just kind of sucks you in until you can do nothing but keep your eyes glued to the screen reading more and more. This chapter was especially suspenseful, there's so many unanswered questions. To add some constructive critisism, I'll say that you could benefit from using some modifier words other than said, I think it will just spice up the writing a little. The dialogue was written very well though and I cannot complain about the gripping plot. Overall, great story and if you're wondering why I'm reviewing the 5th chapter, its because I'm on a scavenger hunt for the word "enigma" in a story, in a contest on the forums and I must review the chapter which the word is in.
I will have to agree with the reviewers below me and say that, this is indeed a really great story. The characters are really real and in character and your use of description and dialogue create a similar atmosphere that we get when reading J.K. Rowling's writing. I can not offer any constructive critisism at the moment as I cannot see any real flaws in your writing. Anyways, it was a good read and I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: Thank you, that's very flattering. Sometimes it's nice to get a little writer's boost now and again and recharge those creative batteries ;)
Summary: Here you will find a jumble messed of ill-conceived poems. Perhaps, and the odds are firmly against it, you may stumble across a small smile, intriquing thought, or unique feeling in here. But, again, it's very unlikely. Verse XI has been validated.
very well written I must say, your style is so much different than I am most familiar with. It's very clear and concise not overly jammed with metaphorical puzzles, if you know what I mean.
Author's Response: Thanks! With this one in particular, it was more or less meant to be fun. I wasn't attempting to get all deep or anything. Just trying to capture some of the "surprises" often attributed to the infamous beans.
Very nice work Vader. It sounded so peaceful and calm, and it has a nice slow flow that kinda slows my heartbeat. I take it that it is from Dumbledore's point of view, from the socks, lemon drops and the quote at the end. If so, then good job capturing his mellow, somewhat weird imagination in his dream.
Author's Response: Thanks! I meant to capture Dumbledore's spirit. Only, he isn't really dreaming.... Thank you very much for the review.
Summary: A collection of Sorting Hat Songs that I wrote.
To writers, feel free to use it for your fics.
Great song again, but I see that the Sorting Hat has lost a bit of his belligerence from the last sorting song. Maybe he had a talking to from Mrs. Sorting Hat?
I respect your Sorting Hat song writing skills very much because I've tried to write one but I can't seem to pull it off, and you say you wrote this one in 30 minutes? Very admirable.
*grin* I claim the title 'Fastest rhymer' in the forum *lol*
Summary: A collection of poems featureing your favorite Harry Potter characters as parents and the thoughts going through their head. First one is called A Wondering Father and the character is James thinking while Harry is being born.
First of all, sorry for such a late review. The truth is I read it a long time ago and then I logged in to review it and BAM!computer totally froze. Anyways great poem, loved the use of repitition, it gave it that sort of anxious feeling that I'm sure an expectant father would have. Overall, great poem 9.5/10, but I'll just round up.
Summary: Since the tragedy at the Astronomy Tower, Harry has become an even more formidable wizard, but a shocking revelation may mean the difference between life and death for The Boy Who Lived. It is the final stage of Harry's quest to destroy Lord Voldemort - can he save the Wizarding World and those he loves from the treachery of the Dark Lord... and also save himself? [Action takes place in media res towards the end of Harry's Seventh Year at Hogwarts (Post-HBP).]
I think that this story has the potential to be great. I was disappointed slightly that the mystery of the horcrux's was over so quickly but I know that you have something else up your sleeve to keep the story going.
Author's Response: Thank you so much :) It's difficult to create a solid sense of exactly where, or it may be more appropriate to say *when*, Harry is in the course of the action - you might imagine this fic starting somewhere towards the end of the seventh book. The title sort of helps - I chose it because "the die is cast" is what is usually said in wartime when something enormous or cataclysmic happens and suddenly you're thrown into battle. That enormous "something" is Harry's discovery that he is a Horcrux. Because of that one detail, Harry is thrust into a majorly bad situation: having to search no further than himself for the last horcrux, how can he kill Voldemort without dying as well? I won't give anymore away, but I hope it eases your anxiety about the future chapters to say some pretty dark stuff lies ahead! Thanks again! :)
Summary: Luna Lovegood, Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, Neville Longbottom and Ginevra Weasley go to Sweden for a heroic hunt of the Crumple-Horned Snorkack
wow, that was a novel! Very well written, I'm not to sure why but I'm particularly fond of the stanza, ‘To be famous means trouble’ he said to his friends ‘A trouble I eagerly shun I prefere to be known for what I intend Rather than what I have done’
Summary: This is simply the brainchild of desire for a broom, to soar the skies and snatch the Snitch.
I liked it very much, it has that kind of random all over the place imagery that you would find in a haiku which I love.
Author's Response: Thanks, a haiku format was kind of what I was going for. -Cherubim
Summary: I love this poem, I know it's nothing compared to the other poems here, but please give it a try! ^.^
I really like this poem. Very good how the dialogue blended easily into the poem without feeling choppy.
Author's Response: thanks! ^.^ sometimes dialouges can sound choppy, and I'm pleased that you think it didn't ;) thank you for your review!
Very good revamp of Overdues. If my memory is correct, I believe that the original is about a panicking man with a library book thats 42 years overdue.
Author's Response: Thank-you. I may soon move this story to a different account.
Good poem! I like the French spin on it also, I know a bit of french and by looking at the French one first, I am proud to say that I was able to understand pretty much what each line meant. The rhythm held up good on the whole, overall good poem.
Summary: A short (as always!) poem on the killing curse. My first poem for a long while so please r/r.
Liked it very much. It flowed so well and the lines just matched so evenly. I hope you continue to write poetry so I may read more.
Author's Response: Thankyou very much. If your interested, I've already written several other poems, see them on my User Page.
Summary: Okay, this is a poem about someone hurting the one he or she loves. In my head, it's two special characters, but you may have others in mind as you read it :) So, I'll just have you all making up who the poems is about! Your choice! :D I feel nice today.. *Grin* Anyway, Read and Review!
Oh, that so has to be Harry and Ginny, but when I read it i thought about Lily and James, anyone else, no? Well great poem anyways, as long as it has a happy ending...
Author's Response: it can be whoever you want it to be *grin* I just love happy endings, so I guess it reflects in my work ;) thank you for your review! :D
Very mysterious, I have no idea where the story is going to go from here but I hope it's somewhere very exciting! It reminded me of this prologue I recently read in a Agatha Christie book, it made little sense at first and then at the end of the book everything related squarely to it. Anyways, very well written I saw very little errors and I liked the little backstories on the policemen made it sound so real.
Summary: After Harry’s death; Ginny find solace in Blaise Zabini. She thinks of the time when she knew him as a Slytherin, as a saviour and as a lover.
Not exactly my favourite pairing, but that aside I thought it was very well written. I am particularily fond of the verse,
You saved me
Your loving sympathy
Your soft kiss
You rescued my mind
The only critisism I can give is that the rhythm faltered a couple of times, but other than that it was good, and keep it up.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm glad you liked it anyway. As for the rythm; I don't strive for any particular rythm, I just write out of spur of the moment thoughts.
Summary: Classical romance.... this time, for Remus and Tonks. (The point of view changes from that of Remus to that of Tonks with each verse.)
Excellent, I love Remus and Tonks as a ship even though not a lot of focus is put on it in HBP. In your poem you used your punctuation and line breaks very well to emphazise certain pauses and words. I want to offer some some sort of contructive critisism, but at the moment I am drawing blank, so I'd take that as a compliment. I'll give it a 9/10 and keep up the great work.
Author's Response: Thank you... I think the idea of Remus and Tonks is very sweet.
Summary: This is my verison of the song Slugtorn and Hagrid sang that night after Aragog's funeral. Odo himself, as well as the entire last paragraph, belongs to Rowling.
Excellent story of the brave knight named Odo. It rhymed really well and flowed pretty good. The only suggestion I can make is to put in quotations when Odo is speaking. I can see a lot of effort went into this (judging by the length) and I tip my cap to you for telling the tale of the brave knight named Odo.
Summary: A poem about a character seeing something very unexpected within themself. Not a long poem, but hopefully worth the read. It does not really pertain to one character alone, but if you can guess which one I had in mind I will certainly offer you my congratulations!
This poem is a bit old and for some reason it won't let me reply to reviews anymore. So I'll just answer the question of who the poem is written about here. I believe when I wrote it I had Dumbledore in mind and thus supporting the theory that Dumbledore had his death planned out before that night on the lighning struck tower. Thank you all for the reviews and comments on the poem, they make writing poems even better.
