"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So, I'm no longer in high school, which means my penname is rather outdated.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: 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.
Well, thanks for a great fic. It was fun to read. Thanks, again. I do hope you make a sequel. James has to remind Lily that she loves him after all! He promised! That still makes me cry. Not really...but it's nice to say. haha. Great story!
YES! They kissed and that was cute. I liked it. Ooh, all that wine, yuck. I don't find it appealing myself -I've only had sips. Hehe. Great job! I was wondering when the summary would show up in the actual story!
*sniffle* Poor James. This was a really great chapter- I can't find fault with it. It was really well done, and it showed both sides of the "argument" very well. At first I thought "Ouch, Lily, That was harsh!" Then, I thougt "Ha! You tell her James!" Anyway, great chapter!
Author's Response: Hi there! Wow, I'm very flattered by this review. I'm real glad you liked it! Thanks so much! I'll try to update a.s.a.p!
*sniffle* Poor James. I hope they all remember. Oh man, i wonder why that scene seemed familiar? I know i've read that somewhere....hm...*wonders* *comes up blank* Oh whatever, I'm sure I'll remember. hehe. Great chapter, and I can't wait for James to remind Lily. *sniffle*
*sniffle* Oh man...that was sad. I hope they're all right. Oh. Poor things. I'll be waiting for the next chapter which is sure to be pretty....exciting.
Okay. Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay
For all of you who wanted an update, I have a proposition. You may or may not like it, but it's all I can offer.
Check review challenge for the last chapter. details there!
James and Lily Potter were possibly the most famous parents in wizarding history. We know alot about their adult life, but what do we really know about their childhood? Even Harry never knew about the Drama, jealousy, danger, friendships, happiness, sadness, resentment,confusion and love that his parents went through as children. Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.
Well, while this might not be one of my absolute favorites, it's definetly not bad. I am sorry for the last review, I guess I did have the image of a five-year-old in my head. I later realised that I was in sixth grade when I was eleven, so it is reasonable that these kids would be cursing. Sorry. And it's alright, you did sound a bit angry in the response, but you had alll the right to. Now, getting to this chapter. I liked the idea of the earthquake, pretty original, and I have a feeling that Remus figured out why James likes Calista *growl* so much...hehe.. Oh, the Sirius vs. Roxy arguement was cute; Sirius is great. *twitches* The bit where Peter says "Count yourself lucky." *shudders* Ack. If I was Thali, I don't think I would mind if it was any other Maurader, but Peter...yuck! Really good little scene to show just how different Peter is...the little ratty traitor! Sorry. Long Review. What was the challenge again?...oh! It's gonna take a while for Lily to forgive James I think. Maybe if James gets rid of Calista. Oh, I loved the last few sentences. "So are we talking again?" "No." HEheh. Very cute. *goes to read the last chapter*
Author's Response: hey, thanks for the review! I'm sorry that you didn't like the chapter all that much, but hehe ya can't please everybody! You don't need to apologise, really, I was having one of those days where I was really touchy! Im sorry! lol, and as for the five year old thing, you are definatly not alone, I think half the people on this site get it mixed up. I hate Peter. sadly, to make this an uncliche story, he has to be a main character. thankfully, I can torture him as much as possible >:D cya next review!!
What was I gonna type? Grr, that was annoying...hm...oh...Wait...Darn! OH! I liked the bit when Remus was persauding them to get outside for the whirlpool thing. Oh, the smoke trick was interesting, but I have a feeling that the fight between Lily and James might not be over. Oh, what happened to Calista? She just kinda left. Or did I miss something? Oh, and what in the world is up with James? *worries* Anyway, I like how you are making this story be from James and Lily's first year on. That's unique.
Author's Response: hey, thanks for the review! hehe glad that ya liked that part, I hope that you liked this chapter better than the last! No, you didn't miss anything, she just hasn't had the chance to be around in the last few chapters. Don't worry bout our Jamsie yet, it's not until next chapter that you'll have to worry... oops, did I just say that out loud? thanks again for the review, and cya lata!
Wow. It's great so far (I am gonna read the rest) but jeez! For eleven year olds they are certainly acting like older kids! I never would've expected that swear out of Lily or the fight with all the curses/hexes! Meep! I think you made them seem a but too old, but I like it otherwise. I also like how you made James and Lily friends when they first started school. That's good!
Author's Response: hey, thanks for the review. I have been through this before, lo and behols, i will go through it again, good thing I am very very patient. My characters are supposed to be human. they are also eleven already. they are no longer 5 year olds who stand by their mummy 'coz the bigger kids ahw scawy. I have a very clear memory of getting into a huge shouting match that almost the entire grade watched. It was me and Paige against Lauren and Morgan. We each had to think of comebacks very fast, and there was alot of swearing involved. my throat hurt for a week. Guess what? i was 9. I am personally sick of reading stories that confuse the grades, and I can understand that, because the age the kids are at when they start Hogwarts is very different to normal "muggle" schools, and even a few times when I was doing my drafts I forgot they were eleven, and kept writing them as scared litte 5 year olds. I am sorry, I know that I'm bad at voicing my opinion without seeming rude, but that's the way i see it. on a brighter note, thanks again for the review, and Im glad that you liked it.
Summary: When Draco Malfoy finds himself falling for the Gryffindor know-it-all, he convinces himself that it’s merely witchcraft. But when they both finally come to terms with the truth, nothing can stop them from being together. This is a tale of forbidden love and dangerous passion weaved into the Half-Blood Prince, where circumstances beyond their control might tear Draco and Hermione apart forever… Check out the long awaited sequal Fatum Amoris...The Fate of Love about Medea Malfoy and Patrick Potter now appearing in the other pairings section.
Just reread that last part-- Soo fluffy and romantic and sweet. *sigh*
Wow. Wow. Oh Wow. Oh Wow. Brilliant! This story has definetly become one of my favorites. I love it. I especially like the way you skipped ahead six years. THe only confusing part is the way you describe the bit about Hermione being the 'boss'. Boss of what? And would she be in Hogsmeade? Anyway, keep it up, I can't wait to read about the 'all day date'. HEhehe
I just...Is there a word for it? It is an amazing story, once again very well thought out. I am interested to see what Part Two will bring. I also think you should continue the Fic under the same title, though as one of your previous reviewers has stated, It's just my opinion. I don't like Snape.
Sugar overload? There was a sugar overload? Really? Hmm...I'll to pay more attention next time...I loved it. It was perfect. Not too cliche. Very nice. I loved the lines after "Marry me" especially much, very creative. WoOt WoOt! Second generation fic! Whoopee! *jumps for joy and impatience!* yeeyeyyeh! Hehe. Great story and great job. I am still kinda sad though that Hermione and Harry, Ron, and everyone else didn't make up. OOh...Maybe, Hermione and Draco's daughter could end up falling in love with Harry's son or something like that...oohh..*starts thinking about sequel* Darn it. I hate when that happens. Don't worry, I'll have a feeling I love the sequel no matter what the plot is. hehe.
Author's Response: Please, don't give away my plots!!! wink, wink. Thanks for all of your reviews.
*tear sniffle* Oh, that letter was amazing. Poor Draco. I really wonder what is gonna happen? and just outta curiosity, do you have all of the chapters written, or are you updating after you write? Awesome story though, definetly a favorite!
Author's Response: I have everything written, there's only three more chapters. I'm actually writing another story right now.
*tear tear* Jeez, this fic is amazing! I love it! Wow. That last chapter is sooo wonderful and turbulent (i guess is a good word.) Keep it up, and don't stop writing stories!
Well, this chapter was kinda choppy, but I guess with what Hermione's feeling, it makes sense. Also, your summary is kinda off. HErmione's starts to go back to her old self? Like starting to fall in love again? Other then that, it was good and I can't wait till the next chapter! Well, I can and I'm just gonna have to! Like it much!
Well, It is getting good, though they do seem a bit lusty like you said. But like ravensclawlion said, you are following HBP canon very well. Keep it up, and I will definetly continue reading it!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I try to stick with the cannon because it's just so great, and it adds HP like plausibility to my fic. Of course, I think made them a little more lusty than I'd meant (hence to note at the end) but as a 17 year old myself, I felt that it was a rather accurate portrayl of a relationship at that age. Especially between two extreme people like Draco and Hermione. Thanks again.
*sniffle* so sad. Poor Draco. good chapter, you are a really good author. I still find it kinda confusing that everyone pushed Hermione away and I really hope that is resolved at one point or another. Otherwise, it is a really good fic and I hope you stick with it and us as faithfully as you have.
First Review! And let me be the first to say that this story is very good! I knew there had to be a catch somewhere in her and it is very well brought to the surface! Very lovely! Thanks for the read!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading it! What can I say? Hermione's human and Draco is...well he's Draco. Glad you liked it!
"He hated her ability to leave him completely confused." Very cute line. I love this story. I feel so glad that at least the Twins understood Hermione, and I do hope that one day the rest of them come around to see from HErmione's POV. Love it and keep it up.
*sniffle sniffle* so sweet, and yet so sad. Poor the-both-of-them. I rode the Eye! It was pretty cool. Great place to stage the first 'date'. It was like they were normal at the bottom, and then as they went upward, they tensed and as they came to the top they were the most tense. When the bubble started to go down, they lost their resolve... Wonderful story. Keep it up and I will be waiting eagerly for the next chapter!
Author's Response: I rode the Eye too! That's why I put it in there, as a sort of ode to my trip to London. Plus it adds a sort of imagery as you explained. Thanks!
