I am junior at Michigan State University, although my fiction has been lying dormant since I was a junior in high school! My favorite character is Tonks...closely followed by Fred and George. I also like Andromeda a lot, but I'm not sure if she really counts, seeing as she's never actually in the books.
Most of the time I am a die-hard canon shipper, although I grudgingly accept NEARLY anything well written.
Outside the world of Harry Potter I doodle, do TaeKwonDo, and procrastinate professionally. I adore Art History, shopping, sock monkies, Cirque du Solei, lemonade, Chex Mix, sleep, and singing badly.

I've scored as both a Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw on these quizzes. The mugglenet fanfiction forums (which has the best test I've seen so far) said I was Ravenclaw...so maybe I am. I still like to think of myself as a Hufflepuff. Woo!! Go Duffers!
After blasting though all the little short stories in this series, I thought I'd take advantage of the new ability to leave reviews for a series as a whole. Not to mention that nobody else had yet, which made the situation all the more appealiing. I am on the verge of considering this series the "new canon", its so compadible with Rowling's work (although I can't say I liked Once). It was a bit like a world within her world. I'm rather depressed its over, although I might start getting more schoolwork (and fictioning of my own) finished now. If I had any specific parts to nitpick on, I would. Unfortunately I was so wrapped up in the story that I didn't notice any grammer stuff (if there was any). I guess I'll just end this review with a standing ovation. *clapclapclapclapclapclap...*
Summary: Giving high school essays a Marauder twist, this fiction is centered around the idea that some seniors in high school are require to write a letter to incoming freshman before they graduate. At Hogwarts, Seventh Years are given an assignment to write such a letter for the new First Years. Sirius decides to actually take an assignment, well seriously...sort of. He decides to look back on his entire Hogwarts years and write down his list of things not to do at Hogwarts.
I don't think I've ever laughed so hard reading a fanfic. That was an absolutely fantastic story!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Fred, George and Ron find a Muggle pregnancy test in the bin... and Ginny's been ill for the past few days... any connection? One Shot fic.
It was funny, but don't you think Mrs. Weasley is a bit old for that? Perhaps? Definitely an enjoyable one-shot, though!

This is an extremely clever idea. Keep up the good work, I can't wait to hear Dumbledore's...
Summary: On Christmas Eve, Ron is shown the error of his ways by four ghosts. Will he learn his lesson before it is too late?
Just in case present. Haha. Great start. Funny, especially Ron simply being annoyed with the Bloody Baron. And I'm off to read the rest!
McGonagall...hoo boy. I don't really know what to say. This is really funny, Its definitely going in my favorites.
You're brilliant. Snape sounded exactly like himself. EXACTLY!!!!! Even though he was talking abouth Hermione's emotions.
Awwww...sweet. Nice ending. Not overdone. Bajillion thumbs up.
Summary: Hermione has a nightmare and goes to Ron for comfort. (sweet little ficlet)
Good Lord! You abbreviated "Chamber of Secrets"! In a story! Why? This was really short too. It needs to be longer, and it needs more pulp. I wanted something sweet and fluffy. Now I feel like I am dying of a cotton candy overdose.

Hmm...Putting a review in amongst such *ahem* PASSIONATE others is sort of intimidating, but here I go. Good story, even though it seems that the biscut idea was from somewhere else. I laughed a lot. I also especially enjoyed the "Azkaban Quidditch Team" part. Extra chuckles came out there.
Hehe. I liked this chapter as well. The red blood cell bit was the best!!!
Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
I'm not a mean person, I swear! And I really did like the tall hat part. Very Dumbledore-ish.
Hello there! This story was recommended to me by a friend and I, so far, have enjoyed it. Thats saying something...seeing as I am a fanatic canon shipper. The plot does seem to be taking its time in developing...which does drag on the reader a little bit. I do understand that you can't just go *poof* "instantly nice Draco" though. The one thing that I realized that REALLY bugs me is that, unless I missed a detail (and if I did, I'm really sorry...please excuse me), then HOW THE HECK CAN THEY CHANGE THEIR SHIRTS WITH THE LOVE KNOT ATTACHED TO THEIR WRISTS????? The sleeve of the attached hand would just get stuck on the ribbon and the shirt would just hang there between them. Like laundry hanging out to dry...or something. Hopefully there were accomodations for that, and I just missed them...or something. Er...thats all.
Author's Response: Hello there! Tell your friend thank you for recommended TUP to you and itís great that you have enjoyed it so far (especially since you\'re a fanatic cannon shipper, as you put it). Yup, I agree, the plot is taking some time, and it can get draggy from time to time, but I\'m glad you understand the fact that itís a little hard to go *poof* and get ďinstantly nice DracoĒ (that line of yours had me laughing my head off). Ah yes, of course, the age old question about ďhow in the world do they put their shirts on with the Love-Knot attached?Ē. I get this question very often and I think itís about time I consider putting up an Authorís note about it. HmmmÖ Haha, but Iíll explain it to you. See, the Love-Knot passes through inanimate objects, such as shirts and clothes in general. That is why things like scissors do not work on it. I do hope that made things clearer and less confusing. Oh, but it can be touched by a wand though, and thatís about it. =D Let me know if you have any other questions!
Oooh, meditation on a broomstick! My psycology class is doing meditation right now. I'm sure it's a lot harder to do in the air. Haha. Good chapter! I'd give it an eight...if the rating system was available right now.
Author's Response: Hahaha, indeed, meditation on a broomstick! Awesome eh? Oh, you\'re doing meditation in psychology now? How cool! So I guess you\'re probably very right when you say that itís probably a lot harder to do in air. But thank you for the eight, nonetheless! I had no idea that the new layout took away the rating systemÖ oh well!
I have to say I was dissapointed. The end was good, and Draco attempting to say thank-you was downright hilarious, as was his thought process beforehand. The rest was rather...blah. Pansy certainly is the jealous girlfriend, but her humor is getting old and a bit repetitive. Malfoy never treated her well in the first place, so I don't see how her appearances are taking anything anywhere.
Malfoy putting his own life on the line for Hermione is a bit of a puzzle. Sure, he's grown, but he's still a Slytherin. I might have to debate that one with myself a little bit more. Harry and Ginny seem absolutely two-dimentional and their dialogue was rather dull. Ron, with his not-so-well-hidden affection with Hermione, is a little bit more fun to read. He did make me chuckle.
Lastly, I think you would be safe emitting the line, "Hermione listened with undivided attention, taking in everything the Headmaster was telling her." from the begining part of the chapter. This is Hermione, for goodness sakes. She always listens with undivided attention.
I am still eager for the next chapter, and relieved not to be left hanging on a cliff, I just have to admit I was a little dissapointed.
This was my favorite chapter in the story (so far) flat out! Bravo! The shrink was absolutely hilarious, I laughed out loud! I think that the whole part after Healer King finished up was not really neccesary. On a random note. I would love to express my excitement that with this new format, I can leave a review and peruse the chapter while doing it...instead of having to remember everything while reading! I'm not sure you actually cared to hear that...but I'm excited =p
Author's Response: Itís great to know that this is your favorite chapter so far. I did have lots of fun with this chapter, especially when it came to crazy, olí Healer King. He was a spur-of-the-moment character, and I\'m glad I used him. Ah, I suppose the ending portion might have seemed a little unnecessary, but it was kinda fun to write as well. So the new layout does offer better opportunities to leave a review, huh? Thatís excellent, and sure, I didnít mind hearing about it either! I completely understand the excitement. =D
Holy monkeys! Now THATS a cliff-hanger! I read 31 chapters in three days and get stuck HERE of all places! Just my luck! Very good...a little corny, but good. Jinx's character is so fun. She was such a clever addition to the story! Have a happy Easter and update soon...por favor!
Author's Response: LOLÖ Holy monkeys indeed! I know the cliffhanger is kinda evil, especially after you read through 31 whole chapters! But I couldn\'t help it. I guess I agree that the ending portion was a little corny (I was in the mood, what can I say? =P). I do love Jinx too. I know she can be a pain at times, but I\'m glad you like her too! Hope you had a great Easter too and now that I\'m back, an update should be around the corner! =D
Summary: This is an insight into the lives of one elderly couple, Alice and Bernard Compton, who lived in a deserted region of east Scotland. What follows is an extraordinary account of one week in mid-March 1998... Quite possibly the strangest and most life-altering period of their lives.
Crazy-awsome story! I don't think I've ever seen a perspective like this before, which is really a shame. Very well thought out, and extremely mystefying (which I probably spelled wrong, I'm terrible at spelling, sorry). I read the whole story in one sitting!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! You're right, it's not quite like any other fics, I guess because it's all from the Muggles' viewpoint, but maybe that makes it interesting! I'm really glad you liked it - and let me know what you think of my other stories, if you wish to read them!
On a side review, my best friend read this story and was blown away. So I'm sort of reviewing for her. No specifics or anything. She just really loved it.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you! I'm really glad your friend enjoyed it - I was starting to think people had forgotten about my Comptons!
