"Tell me one last thing," said Harry. "Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"
That's the way I feel about fanfiction... Sigh. It's my favorite line of DH; I was so happy to hear it in the final movie.
Big, huge, gargantuan, colossal, magnanimous, gigantic, wonderful, squeeze-worthy, giant.... I've run out of adjectives....big thank you to babekitty_92 for the beautiful banner! I nearly was in tears when I saw it. I don't know why I was, because it's so simple, but I love it sooo much! Thank you! *squeeze*
So, I'm no longer in high school, which means my penname is rather outdated. Nevertheless, freshman year will always be a special time for me because that's when I started here at MNFF. ;D I now attend the American Academy of Art in downtown Chicago, and I major in illustration.
I love Harry Potter and decided in freshman year of high school (hence the penname) to start a story. I'm incredibly flattered that the story has been accepted the way it has, and it warms my heart to read the reviews. (And yes- I know that sounded chessy. :D) I also have an account at Fanfiction.com, under the penname: Io.sono.Emilia., on which I've posted this story also. So before you accuse me of stealing a story....
Read the stories; maybe you'll get something about me out of them.
Thanks to all of you for sticking around! Maybe one day in the future I'll start working on a brief epilogue, or even a few sequels and one-shots based on other characters. Life's been a bit hectic, but I'll return to it one day... I had fun while it lasted. :D Thanks again!
Summary: At the end of the summer before her 5th year, the twins offer Ginny one of their new products: a Forget Me Do Chew, a troublesome little sweet that she's all too tempted to use on Harry...H/G one-shot with some R/H!
I agree with IckleGinnyKins. That was brilliant. I loved it! Such a good idea. I really like this line, "Sure, Ginny, riding invisible monsters hundreds of miles in the air, rushing head-on into the Department of Mysteries after-hours, diving right into a situation where you know Voldemort is involved—oh all in a day’s work, nothing to fear. But a small thing like kissing a boy, and you turn into jelly." HEhe. I can't say that I've ever experienced either of those, but hehehe, it was still a great quote. There were other ones, but that one was the first. Great Job!
AWWWW!! Just reread this. What a complete ball of mush! I LOVE IT! *laugh*
Thanks for the laughs! And the sighs... and the warm fuzzies. Great story. Very clever. The only thing I can suggest- if you ever start writing again, which, I KNOW, is not that easy- limit the amount of words between dialogue in intense or funny or just emotional scenes... Too many words slow things down and that's not cool. So, cut back on some words. But, just a little suggestion.
Again, thanks for the story- made my day. ;D
Summary: NOTE: CHAPTER 19 IS COMPLETE; CHAPTER 20 HAS BEEN STARTED!
It is Hermione Granger's seventh and final year at Hogwarts. When she and Draco Malfoy are together more often than either would like, Hermione asks herself: "Can a leopard change its spots?", as Draco wonders: "Will any sort of relationship with Granger be bad for my health...?"
"Oh, Snape's always grumpy, Ginevra; haven't you noticed? Perhaps his coffin is too small.” Haha. Silly Luna. "I'm a little teapot, short and stout, here is my handle here is my spout-" I'm stopping there. Haha. So, is Krum a Death Eater? and is Draco one too? Or was that just in the vivid terrible dream? Whoa. I can't beleive he kissed her! Though I'm very happy. Haha. I hope they kiss agian everything's all good- though I doubt it'll all be good so soon. Oh my. Good story. Question: You have this posted on harrypotterfanfiction. Is this the story you'd prefer for us to read? Or is it the other one, because there are a few differences?
Author's Response: I love Luna; I try to make her as canon as possible, but of course I have to add a bit more to her at times! :) As for your questions... Krum a Death Eater? Hmm. Draco too? Hmmmmm. No comments...lol. Thank you for the lovely review! Yes, I do have this same story over at HPFF, but I have always had trouble loading up the story, soooo, THIS is the one I\'d prefer everyone to read; THANK YOU for bringing that to my attention! :)
Summary: They say that true love conquers all. Harry and Ginny, and Ron and Hermione will be able to put this to the test during the new term to come. With a deranged killer on the loose, new friends, a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and Voldemort planning his final attack, it will be a year of trials and tribulations. And what exactly is the Year of the Dragon? You'll just have to read to find out!
CHAPTER 14 IS UP! CHAPTER 15 IS IN QUEUE!
NOOOOOOO!!! NOOONNONONONONONO! Update soon! Please! This story is very good, just as CoC was. Thanks for the read, but if you dont give me more....*scowls* 50/10! I love the Draco/Luna bit! And Gred and Forge are just fabulous, as is Hermione's p.j. shirt!
In her seventh year at Hogwarts, Lily starts to feel she'll never find love. That is, until a familar looking masked man sweeps her off her ruleabiding feet. Pre-HBP, AU
Well, while LaaDeeDaa and RoxyMarie have a point: he can't be too dangerous in the firem but I think you can trust Voldemort on one thing: he'll find a way to make as much trouble as possible, even if his head is in the fire. Great story; only one more chapter? darn! Great story!
NOOO! NO more story to read! Update! I love it by the way, even though this is the third masquerade story i have read, but it is fantastic! Poor, poor Lily. And poor James, not even given the chance to show himself properly. Poor things.
Summary: One-Shot. She can't stop thinking about him, but she has refused to give in... will she surrender to love, despite the dangers and despite her own fears? Based on the song, I surrender by Celine Dion, this is a rather fluffy, kind of intense, Ron/Hermione fic.
I've reviewed this before, but I had to read it once more with the musi behind. It's a very good song. A good story too. :-) Hey, are you going to update "You Smell?" sometime soon? hey, I thought I had reveiwed this before...Hmm....That's strange. Oh well, I like it and the song. Very nice.
Summary: ONE SHOT - Love is a delicate thing not to be meddled with. When it is, hearts end up torn, ripped apart and abandoned. Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger share a love indescribable. That’s why it was destined to end. And it ended too soon. For both of them.
as soon as I read that letter, i knew i had read this before, but oh it's still as sad! *sniffle*
Author's Response: Well thank you for reading again. I love hearing what people think. I do that to, isn\'t it weird? You can read something and think, \"Havn\'t I read this before? But I don\'t remember this part!\" and then when you get to a certain line, you suddenly remember! Alas, will the complexity of our minds ever be revealed? :)
Summary: What happens when Fred and George Weasley, Hogwarts' reknowned kings of pranks, decide to spike a shipment of pumpkin juice bound for Hogwarts with truth potion? A day filled with true confessions of Hogwarts students!!!!!
"Ten bottles of truth potion…fifteen galleons. The knowledge that we’re still the kings of pranks at Hogwarts…priceless!” Gosh Darn you Gred and Forge! You terrible people! That was hilarious. Great job. Oi. Crazy people.
Author's Response: You know what? Gred and Forge are about to be in for a surprise. Check out the sequel when it gets accepted!
Summary: After the Voldemort's defeat in the second war, former Death eaters are still at large. The Ministry of Magic has begun cross-training between departments to make up the shortfall of qualified wizards. Draco and Hermione are involved in a training accident and end up closer than they ever imagined.
I've read this at least three times, not because it's one of my top faves, but becuase I forget everything that happens. i noticed this time, however, that nearly all of these chapters have NO spaces! It's not fun. Maybe go over this, if you're still interested in this story, and seperate the big paragraph.
Not a bad ending. I must say though that I had forgotten what had happened. At least, until you wrote about the accident, then I remembered what went on. Poor Draco. Poor Hermione. I'll have to reread one day to remember it all. Not a bad job. The ending was kinda weird though.
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Wow. Wow. Wow oh wow oh wow! I'm sorry but that is all I have to say! This is developing beautifully! You really have a gift of writing. Keep it up...I'm really interested!
Author's Response: Thank you ^_^ Hehe, I'm glad you like it!
Well...It most certainly took you long enough, but it was a very good chapter. I still have a very hard time of reminding myself that Draco and Hermione are still in school. They just seem so much older. I'll have to reread the previous chapters, but I don't hink that'll help me get a better grasp. Thanks for posting and keep up the chapters! :-) Oh, I really liked how sweet/kind Draco was. Nice job.
Author's Response: It has definitely been tedious to submit this story to this website. Chapter Ten was rejected repeatedly, and now they won\'t take eleven. I suppose they might seem older, since I\'m older than they are and tend to write as such... only a couple years difference. I I\'m glad you like it so far. All 36 chapters are up for viewing on other fanfiction sites. There are links in my profile if you\'re interested. It\'s under the same title and penname.
Summary: She felt like everything inside of her had been dumped into a cauldron, mixed up and swirled around, and then dumped out at her feet, leaving her to figure out the mess. It was rather annoying, actually.
So you do know the idea of "siad Hermione" and "exclaimed Ron". Haha. This was sweet. I liked it. I can't wait for book seven. Oooh...
Summary: Meet James Potter, a clever, somewhat mischievous, popular student at Hogwarts. He takes every situation in stride and has everything under control, except one: Lily Evans, an amazingly beautiful and intelligent individual. He loves her more than anything, but she despises him more than anything, and a not-so-impressive run-in late at night with her leaves James thinking that chasing after Lily might be hopeless. Then, a series of events happen in James' life, which is topped off by an unexpected visitor that makes his sixth year too sweet to remember.
I love Shakepseare! Great! Poor Jen. She really is alot like Wood...Oliver that is. :-) I like the bit about the prefect's bathroom...maybe JKR should write something about it one day...Heheh
Author's Response: Like Aunt like... nephew? I guess that doesn't quite work, but... heheh... I'm really flattered that you liked the Shakespeare I put in and the bathroom scene. Thanks!
*gape* Oh my....Poor Jen. Poor James. He just is so down hearted. *sniffles for James* I have a question though. Is Jennifer Wood supposed to be Oliver Woods mother? because how can she have the same last name without being married and I don't think she married during school. Hehe. Oi. Good Chapter by the way, I am pretty eager though for Lily to see something in James....
Author's Response: Aww, you're feeling for James? That's cute. The thought of her being Oliver's mom did cross my mind at a time, but just like you pointed out, I realised he really couldn't be. So I decided to not make it so cliche and make her his Aunt. (Oliver's dad's sister) Also, I thought a lot about Jennifer's age, and if she WAS Oliver's mom, she would've had him pretty young. LOL! So, yeah. Ooh, I'm really glad you liked the chapter. Thanks once again!
Yeah, it must've been Lily who slowed James's fall. Poor Audrey. Poor Sirius. Good chapter, and keep it up!
Author's Response: Hi there! Heheh, you'll find out about James's fall and all that a bit later. Thanks for the great review!
Idiot. Two idiots actually. Great ...what's the word....THANK YOU MOM! Reinaction of the Whomping Willow scene. OI, I could only be so confused if that guy who had hated me for years decided to save my life, however greasy that may be. Well, I have to get to the train to get to the bus to get to school, so I will applaud *claps* and ask you to keep it up! Great job.
Author's Response: HAHAH! Two idiots! LOL! I'm really glad you liked the whole Whomping Willow scene. It's a famous scene, so I wanted to make sure it had the right feel to it. Thanks so much!
*gasp!* That was awesome. Great chapter, great story, great need for more! Hehe. It's a really good story, and I hope the next chapter are just as good as the rest. I can't believe James kissed Audrey. At first I was like, "James, ask Audrey. Dur!" It made sense that he would ask her, but hey, the Sirius bit was good too! Like it much!
Author's Response: Wow, this is a very flattering review! It's greatly appreciated! I'm really glad you like everything I put into it, and also the Sirius and Audrey thing. I just sent chapter fifteen in, so it should be up soon! Thanks for reviewing!
That was spectacular! Amazing! Great work. I really liked how you saw James and relayed his feelings onto the paper. It's been a really great story, and I know you'll continue to make it prefect- I mean perfect. haha. "He had to let her go, for her sake." NO James, Don't! She needs you! She told you to remind her, you idiot! Gah. Oh well. I know he'll get her back. HAha. Once agin, great chapter, great author, great story - funny how those all coincide! :-)
