Wotcher! I'm a 15 year-old HP, Rent, Wicked (musical and book), Tolkien fan (not just the movies mind-- More power to the Silmirillion!).
So, I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to put in my bio, but I love dance, music, and visual art. One of my other favorite things is, obviously, creative writing. And politics! O, how fun!
I hope to read some of your stories, as well. Cheers!
Very cool chapter! I love this and I can kind of relate to the characters, which is excellent. I can't wait for more. Cheers!
I like it very much. Wow, Ted is completly opposite of how I thought he would be, but seeing as my dad and I have so much in common we sometimes get in tifts, I completly understand. Nifty awesome story. Cheers~
Author's Response: As I might have said somewhere else, I had absolutely NO idea as to what I should do with Ted and Andromeda. I had nothing. I sort of grabbed two personalities out of the air and made them parents, lol. Thanks so much, especially for calling my story 'nifty!' I love that word! :)
Summary: After the hospital scene in which Tonks finally admitted her feelings, her and Remus have a discussion by the lake. A short, rather angsty-but-fluffy Tonks/Remus one-shot. Contains HBP spoilers.
I liked it! Nice job. It was definately fluffy, but just to the point where it was enough fluff. Perfect. ;) Anyways, cheers~
Summary: Remus Lupin, resident werewolf of the Order of the Phoenix, meets Nymphadora Tonks, newly instated Metamorphamagus. Follow them through friendship to their ensuing relationship, which persists in attempting to happen, despite their best efforts. If it does, will they be ready?
Brilliant! As everyone has so kindly, and deservedly, commended you on the incharacter-ness (I know that's not a word), I shall as well: Nice job! I agree with the Moody comment. Definately in character, not just "Oh look! A lonesome werewolf and a clumsy auror! Kissy, kissy!" because that's definately not Moody. Your dialogue between Remus and Tonks was very good, as well. You pretty much contained both of their personalities in that one conversation. Really, an amazing R/T story. Very awesome! 10/10 Cheers!
Author's Response: Heh heh. Thanks lots!
Summary: The war is over and both sides have had their losses. Friends and loves have been waiting for news but time is passing and there is no sign of recovery. Can a letter help with the emotional load one of our heroes is carrying?
Challenge Number Two
A one-shot liking a person or situation to shattered glass. In other words, using shattered glass as a metaphor.
That's very well-written and really emotionally compelling. Very, very nice! I'll check out your other stories, too. Cheers!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad this one shot inspired you to read my other fictions! I love to make the audience feel for my characters so emotions are important. Thank you again, ~ Roxy
Summary: Remus is trying to cope after Hallowe'en 1981.
That's really nice! You managed to write Lupin so that he was bitter and lost without making him seem self-centered. Its hard to write any character without making them seem so, but especailly Remus. I found this through your sig, by the way. Cheers!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I really appreciate it!
I'm glad to hear chapter 3's in the cue. I like this story a lot! Keep up the good work. Cheers~
Summary: Written in response to Challenge One
"People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone."- Audrey Hepburn
It's New Year's Eve, late at night, and most of the world is out and about, except for two people. One person is lost emotionally, perhaps beyond all mortal repair, and another one is up, unable to sleep, just sitting. What happens when the two meet?
Very nice! I like the kind of "hidden power,"if you will, behind Remus and Harry's exchange. I'm writing for Hufflepuff, as well, so good luck in the challenge. Badgers unite!
Summary: Submission to Winter Snows Holiday Challenge number Four : The Twelve Days of Christmas.
As the Twelve Days of Christmas go by, Ron Weasley gets numerous 'presents' - if you can call what he gets 'presents' - from someone who he will later realize is none other than his True Love.
Based on the traditionnal jiggle "On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, my True Love gave to me ..."
Very cute! I usually don't critique poetry and whatnot, but the only thing I'd suggest would be rephrasing the 2nd day of Christmas. It reads: "Two enchanted reminders of how much days left there are until the exams." It fits the rhythm if you squash it, but it might sound better if you did something to the effect of "Two enchanted reminders of how many days until (or 'til) exams." Just a suggestion, of course. You can, as always, ignore me. Lovely, though. Very, very cute and funny. Cheers~
Summary: "You did not come here to play chess."
On New Year's Eve, Minerva McGonagall finds herself without the usual distractions of students and staff. She decides there is only one way to solve the puzzle before her, and that she will have to take a rather large chance.
This was a submission for the Redemption Challenge and contains huge howling unavoidable HBP spoilers.
It should please you to know that you've just turned a hard-core Snape hater into a Snape-disliker. Congratulations, that's hard to do.
I loved your character pairing. I've never imagined McGonagall and Snape speaking to each other civilly, let alone willingly spending time together. But what better way to have two characters of such personalities meet than in chess games? Absolutely brilliant. And the chess analogy was amazing. You characterisation was great, as well.
I'm really starting to pity Severus. Anyway, this is an absolutely wonderful story! Cheers!
Author's Response: "It should please you to know that you've just turned a hard-core Snape hater into a Snape-disliker." Wow. That's actually going on my list of favourite praises. Thank you!
Summary: PoA Missing Moment: It's the last day of term before the Christmas holidays. Professor Remus Lupin is feeling the effects of the full moon, which is drawing ever nearer. Then he recieves something which, even if only for a few minutes, seems to dull his pain...
This is very well-written, and the parallel between the two cards was very nifty. Your characters were perfectly incharacter, or at least I assume so. They're how I imagine them. Very nice. I wish I could tell you more, but I'm falling short tonight. 10/10 most definately. Cheers~
Summary: He looked down at this feet and let out a faint laugh. “You know Tonks, you’ve got a lot in you. I’ll see you around.” And with a smile and a wink of the eye, Remus Lupin vanished.
Wow. This is absolutely amazing! I read R/T fics and I think "Wow, this has got to be the best characterisation," and *wham* another one pops up. I love how you showed Remus and Tonks' friendship. The subtle hints: eye contact at the same moment, silence in which no one needs to say what they are thinking, and general, almost unsaid, support for one another. And Tonks' last line was brilliant. I don't think I've read a better Remus-like response to a question like that. I love this, honestly. Keep it up; you're a beautiful writer! Cheers!
Author's Response: Wow... thanks so much for the praise!
Summary: The war is over. Harry Potter defeated Voldemort. But... what next? How do you pick up the pieces after so many years of war? Is it possible to just forget the past? How do you keep from asking "what if?"
I really enjoyed your story! I as well think that you could have drawn out Harry's reasoning behind feeling guilty. Perhaps just the twisted way Harry's mind was organising things. But, I still loved the story. Cheers!
Author's Response: Thank you for that. I don't think Harry's mind was organising things in a twisted way though. I think it's perfectly natural. You force yourself to get used to war, and then when it's over, it's hard to have the energy to force yourself back. I recently saw a WWII documentary where a civilian woman said she was hiding in a cave from some American soldiers. When she and some of her friends came out, the Americans started firing. She says she can still remember the horrified looks on the soldiers' faces when they realized that they were shooting teenage girls. How do those soldiers go back and look at the world the same way? They can't. But is it really their fault? I don't think so. That doesn't make it any easier though. I was trying to separate this from those typical stories where Harry feels guilty about the war. My point is, he doesn't need to feel guilty. The memories are enough. I think it's unfair of us to expect soldiers to come back from the hell that is war, and be the same people they always were. As the HP series moves on, the harder it is for me to believe that Harry will defeat Voldy and walk hand-in-hand with Ginny into the sunset. He's seen so much, where do you draw the line? Where's the point where he can't look at the world and see benevolence anymore? How much do you have to lose before you shut whatever's left away? I don't really have an answer. This fic was an attempt to find one. It didn't work that well, as I'm beginning to see. P.S. A big thank you to all my reviewers!
Wow, that's a different side of Remus. Usually that type of angst is massacred, but you did a nice job. Kudos for pulling off the suicidal Remus. ;) Though I still can't imagine him like that. Cheers!
Wotcher! I absolutely love this. As i read through the very beginning, I was a slight confused, but as it moved on, it all clicked, y'know? I loved how you tied in all the flashbacks, and I must admit, even though I don't really *love* the song "A Moment Like This," the moment with Ginny and Dean was absolutely perfect! I got goosebumps so many times reading youR story, you wouldn't believe. May I ask, though, where precisely was Ginny returning from on the Knight Bus at the beginning? It's probably blatantly obvious and I just didn't notice. You read my submission, so you know I'm an R/T shipper. I'd like you to know that your description of Remus and Tonks' engagement topped off a brilliant day. Thank you. On a darker note, I'm glad someone finally had Hermione's parents die. I've considered doing so many times, yet I just couldn't be that evil. You pulled it off well without making it too dramatic. Go you! Anyway, I love your story. Great grammar, word use, etc., etc, as well. Cheers!
Author's Response: Thank you! I know what you mean...this songfic starts at the end of the story...kinda...sorta! ;) The moment with Ginny and Dean really seemed to work out well for the "kiss for all ages" contest. You got goosebumps? That makes me so happy! I like to hear my writing has an affect!
Summary: Ginny Weasley has been a nervous wreck since last June. She's worried sick about the Trio and can't seem to shake out of her depressive funk.
Luna Lovegood seems to be acting like her regular self and eventually teaches Ginny her secret. Of course, Luna being Luna, she does so with a highly unusual bit of wisdom and an even weirder method.
Written for challenge #3. Forum name: skarm/House: Ravenclaw. HBP Spoilers.
That's really neat! A very good Kiss for the Ages fic. Everything that needed to be conveyed wrapped into one story, the whole 'love conquers' idea. Very neat. Cheers! 10/10
