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 maybe I am. I still like to think of myself as a Hufflepuff. Woo!! Go Duffers!

Someone To Watch Over Me by MagEd
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 1664]

Summary: Past Featured Story2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance

Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)

Ooooh...the authors note at the end made this chapter all the more exciting! I must read on! Poor Madeline has been absolutely traumatized. Imagine being a Muggleborn going to some mysterious school...thinking you found a nice person...and then watching that person get attacked!!! Ay Caramba! Anyway, I enjoyed that chapter and am now off to read more....!!!

Author's Response: I know, poor Madeline indeed! I\'m glad the story sounds exciting to you, thanks for the review!

Wow...a very dramatic begining!!! One thing, though...Wouldn't Emmaline Vance have gone to Hogwarts only a few years before, if she's Brittish? Everyone should recognise her, in that case.

Author's Response: In this fic, she didn\'t go to Hogwarts. You\'d assume she would, and I\'m sure she probably did, but for the purpose of this fic, she didn\'t. Thanks for the review!

Arg! The story has been good (rather addicting, actually) so far. And now I have to wait for a new chapter! Waaahh! Hmm...I'm trying to think of some intelligent comments to make on the story...but its rather late at night. Sorry. Update soon please!!!

Author's Response: Yeah, sometimes good reviews are hard to think up, I should know. Thanks very much though, I\'m glad you liked the story! Hopefully the next chapter should be accepted soon.

I know I haven't reviewed in fact...I can't even remember the last review I left...if there was one. But, anyway, I LOVE this story. The characters are great, and so is the comic relief, and the serious parts.

Author's Response: I do think comic relief is important to a story; I\'m glad you enjoy mine! Thanks for the review (especially if it is the first time!)


Dudders by bajab

That was great, a very enjoyable view of the limited depths of Dudley's thinking as well as all the "stuff" that Harry had accumulated over his years at Hogwarts that we never saw again. I have to say that I was skeptical at first, but completely won over in the end (especially with the Canary Cream). Bravo!

Author's Response: Skeptical? You should trust me... :)


James' Christmas Chaos by stareyed_in_LA
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: Twas the day before Christmas, and James was faced with a dilema. He forgot to get a present for Lily, so he must now find something that she will love. Little did he know that it will cost him something that he prizes above all things.

Aww...sweetness, cuteness...awww. Okay, I have composed myself now. I couldn't see Remus pounding a doorbell at fifty hits per minute, thats more of a Sirius thing. In fact, Remus and Sirius seemed a little too immature for their age in this fic, despite Sirius' fanon reputation for being crazy and overenergized. What form of TaeKwonDo has a purple belt, by the way? I still really like the fic, it was great in a funny/adorable way.

I found it a bit unsettling for some reason...although that isn't a bad thing. Definitely excellent, though. I was so excited to see you had a new story out! Padma is such a different perspective, and I particularly enjoyed the way she saw her relationship with Parvati. I liked the description of the apartment building too, and the very end parenthesis.

He was Muggle-born, a Hufflepuff, and a slob. Andromeda Black could not understand why a boy with messy hair and untidy ways was so popular until she realised no one enjoyed life like Ted Tonks. It wasn't a secret that he liked her...and she didn't like his girlfriend.

Andromeda is my favorite! This was funny and sweet. Andromeda's dialogue was extremely entertaining as well. I definitely need to read Moonlight and Shadow now!!!

Author's Response: Blacks may be snarky at times, but at least they aren\'t boring! Yay for you wanting to read another story! *tosses paper into the air like confetti*
