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!

In Adversity We Know Our Friends by Wise Owl

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 1410 Reviews
Summary: This story is about Harry's struggle...his struggle to obey his mind when his heart is screaming out in protest .

It's about Ginny's secrets, her aching heart, and where her loyalty lies.
Mainly, this story is about friends, those you can trust and those who can't trust you.

Reviews are fun and easy! So don't shy away from stating your opinion...trust me, it feeds the fire so I'm not left out in the cold! ;)

Oh yeah Ron, that doesn't sound too dangerous. *cough, cough* I'm sure Ginny has heard more of Harry's thoughts than shes letting on. This story is really getting exciting, I love how fast you update too! It keeps everything flowing smoothly. This is defintely one of my favorites.

Author's Response: Hmmm, I have to say...Ginny's simply acting as a medium...like a telephone connecting two people who want to chat. So technically, Ron is right. But your hesitation in accepting the danger aspect of it is right on target. How much can Ginny take, before she oversteps the role that the Order wants her to play? That's the question to ask! Thank thank about the quick updates...I try to stay 5 chapters ahead of you guys (I'm only 4 ahead right now...I'll use this break to catch up!) That way I can just keep updating when I see a chappie has come out of que!

Maybe I shouldn't have started with the weird ghetto thing JeWb, but huh? I didn't really get what you said. But basically I'm visiting my grandparents in Florida right now and I think that is where you said you live.

I am finally leaving a review! Ta-da! Here it is. *takes a bow, a cricket chirps* So why is Hagrid giving out love advice? I just can't see that. I guess I could never imagine the word "passion" being in Hagrid's vocabulary. I like the idea of Charlie and Tonks together. Sounds cute. Awwww... And I laughed quite a bit when Ron was 'attacking' Harry on the quidditch feild. I'm impatient for more!

Poor Rania, I bet your feeling stalked. AND if I had felix felicis (spell?) than I would do my college applications on it. I couldn't go wrong! Notre Dame would love me!!!

This is really clever! I love your stories! Is the chambet being built going to end up as the Chamber of Secrets? Please continue on with this story, its so much fun!

Author's Response: I hate doing this...I promised I wouldn't, but I am...but I'm going to end up deleting this one. The idea and plot and all of that was really good and clever...but I don't enjoy writing it...nor do I have the time. However, if anyone else wants to continue (or rewrite) this, feel free to contact me, and I'll send you my ideas. Sorry!!!!

A Road of Shattered Glass by Ennalee

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 144 Reviews

Date: 10/02/05 Title: Chapter 6: Dreams of Spun Sugar

This is a really good story. I've been dying for the next chapter and have mentally smacked Ninette's aunt a couple of times. Add that to the fact that I'm dying for Ninette and Tonks to find each other and one could say that you definitely get your readers emotionally involved. Awesome!!!

Author's Response: There seem to be a lot of people out there wishing to smack Aunt Edris. I wonder why? ;) I can't say how happy I am about that, though; emotional involvement of the reader is one of my goals! Thanks very much!

Sirius Black . . . Babysitter Extraordinaire?! by Scheherazade

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 201 Reviews
Summary: If Sirius Black can handle Severus Snape for 7-years at Hogwarts, then watching baby Harry, his godson, for the weekend should be a breeze right? WRONG! Find out what really happens when James and Lily leave Harry in his watch.

**This story was written in collaboration between me and the wonderful author, Crimsonphoenix1.**

R-E-S-P-E-C-T! haha!! uber-funny!!! I don't remember if i've reviewed other chapters of yours or not but if not...I really like your story. The only thing that bugs me is that Lily and James would have a fellytone in their house. Just because Lily is muggleborn...oh well. Good job!

Author's Response: Sirius singing was one of my favorite parts of the story. I nearly died laughing when my co-author sent it back to me. When I wrote the bit about the telephone, I actually debated on whether they would have a phone or not. I decided they did, as it would come into play later in the story. Thanks for R&Ring!

Really liked it. Harry was very pre-Hogwarts Harry-ish!!! It was really funny, too.

The way you started off with the scene from COS was clever...but the humor seems a little twisted. I know you say that its going to get better but its important to make the first chapter really good...otherwise people won't bother to come back (unless they have nothing better to do, and then you can redeem yourself).

Author's Response: i taken it under seriouly consideration and i decided to fix it up a bit ... i agree, the first and last chapter have to be the best

I like this a lot! I am not going to hazard a guess as to who the mysterious note-writer is, though. The Lysol-spraying was certainly entertaining. Keep the rest of the chapters up!!!!!!!!! :-)

Author's Response: You know, the Lysol spray mention was my favorite touch, but no one seemed to notice! It made me sad...Thanks for noticing! And reviewing!

Wow, I really enjoyed this, in all its randomness. The drunk James and Voldemort wasn't funny, but the "its my birthday" stuff was.

Author's Response: Sorry you didn't like the drunk part...but hope you read Ch. 2 when it's up!

Silver-grey meeting chocolate brown by tetris

Short, sweet, nice. Is that Hermione or Ginny? Both have brown eyes.

Author's Response: I was kinda thinking Hermione when writing this one, but it could be Ginny too ;) thanks for the review! :D

Marauders No More: The Rise of the Chosen One by ImaDarklord68

Rated: Professors • 13 Reviews
Summary: Albus Dumbledore meets Sibyll Trewlawney at the Hogs Head Inn to conduct an interview for the Divination Post at Hogwarts and encounters someone with future ramifications for the Wizarding world...
Reviewer: notabanana Signed
Date: 11/30/05 Title: Chapter 1: Prelude: December 28, 1979 The Prophecy

Really like your writing style. The interview for the post of Divination Prof. seemed oddly short but I suppose you woluldn't want to drag something like that out. Great story so far!

Date: 11/30/05 Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 4: January 6, 1981; The Final Solution

That makes sense as to why Dumbledore didn't trust Sirius with the Fidelius Charm. Dumbledore and Karkaroff wouldn't have greeted each other so warmly in GOF if this had all happened though.

Author's Response: I would tend to agree but you have to remember that Dumbledore always put the past behind him and felt that everyone that was on the "evil" side deserved a second chance.

Date: 11/30/05 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter Five: May 1981; Creatures of the Night

*sniff* *sniff* You need more light-hearted moments, even if this is a war. Aside from that your story is as spiffy as ever (hehe...spiffy)!!!!

Author's Response: This story was intended to be dark and it was very much influenced by Revenge of the Sith. I really wanted that forboding feel to it. Thanks to all the flashbacks that JKR has put in the books so far, it is a bridge that leads to the beginning of Chapter One in TSS

The Life and Times of Harry Potter by Cassie Payne

Rated: Professors • 154 Reviews
Summary: After Harry's retirement party, he and Ginny remember their long and happy life together, including Bill and Fleur's wedding, Harry and Ginny's first kiss, and a lot of other firsts, too! (Rated cautiously for adult themes and mild language in later chapters.)

I really like this! Its cute, fun, and the whole "Dudley's Daughter" thing isn't too weird for me. You really should do a fic on her. Two thumbs up!

Author's Response: :)
