"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So, I'm no longer in high school, which means my penname is rather outdated.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: Professor Sprout has just given 7th year Gryffindors a new project, where the class, divided in pairs, has to raise a rare plant. What’s gonna happen when Lily finds out who her partner is? And how will she survive in his sole company?
Gah! Evil Gudgeon, whatever his first name was. GAH! You definetly have to love Sirius. I think that is what makes writing Marauder fics so fun: Sirius. Heheh. It was a good chapter, and I loved the whole Harry Plant thing. Very creative.
This is already on my favorites list, but actually I just now finished chapter five and I think it is absolutely fantastic. Great plot and very funny with Harry as the plant, great twist. Kinda confusing at some points, but oh well. I loved your response to Queen Akilah's review: Author's Response: I hope he wouldnt be too disappointed... I mean, Harry the Plant is a very handsome plant. : )absolutely great. hehe. A very handsome plant indeed...hehe great story.
Author's Response: Thanks!!!
Summary: Bill and Fleur are getting married and love is in the air. But will an old flame drive a wedge between Ron and Hermione? Will Harry change his mind about Ginny?
how cute! Pretty funny, and cute, and well written. Congrats and keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks a lot. I'm really glad you liked it.
Messrs. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs -- These names are known by every person in Hogwarts. These names, and an envelope with a scarlet wax seal bearing the letters: MWPP.
The teachers dread it, the students revel in it...but who are these 'Marauders,' as they are called? That's just it. Nobody knows. Most every prank Hogwarts sees is at the hands of these mysterious Marauders, and the perpetrators always walk free. They could never be caught. You can’t catch phantoms.
Lily Evans is just as curious as the next student as to who these Marauders are, but her curiosity is transformed into a hungry need, when she receives a letter herself from a certain Mr. Prongs.
[This story is slightly AU, but more on that in the author's note at the end.]
Well I HAVE to agree with grape_2010 "darn it you and your cliffies". I think she put it perfectly! DONT LEAVE US HANGING!!!!!! I like by the way!
That was good. The wait was long, but not too bad. Grape_2010 was right, it was "bang" type of ending, but hey, those last lines were great. 'And Lily Evans kissed James Potter. Or Mr. Prongs. Or does it even matter?' Very cute. LIke much, hope Meant to Be is worked on soon, too!
Summary: After the death of her parents, Lily seeks comfort from a certain someone. Will he be willing to give her the comfort that she needs? I know kind of a crappy summary, but its my first fic...
Ooh, this sounds like a good start. Poor Lily. I noticed that my one-shot is a favorite, and now this is gonna be a favorite for me. Great work, and I'll be waiting for the next chapter.
Rated: [Reviews - ]
HeHeHeHe! I just love Sirius! He's just soo funny! I liked the story; very cute. Though it did seem like the romance went a bit fast, but hey! it's a one-shot! Thanks for reviewing my story, by the way!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Great chapter! I'm a bit confused about the "dating his (James') best friend's ex!" Val dated Remus? And Allie like sirius, and Sirius like Allie? Okay. There were a few instances when it was confusing about who spoke what dialogue, like the scene when the marauders show up at Allison's house. Dina is who? Allie's mom? and then anna and Garett are james's parents? I love the name Garett. haha. Okay, get workign on chapter 5! Hehe.
Author's Response: Thanks a lot for the review! I\'m a fan of your story, by the way. The Val/Remus thing is explained in chapter 5, and it would ruin it if I told you :) Dina is Allison\'s mom, and Anna and Garrett are James parents. Allison and Sirius like each other, yes, but maybe it\'s only platonic. Hmm... Ponder on that. Again, thanks for the review!~
i know you're a fan, that's why I read this. I figured there have to be sooo many good authors out there who like my stories, so...*shrugs* I do like yours, by the way. So chapter five is in the works? YEah!
Author's Response: :D Well thank you for checking us out.
Summary: James finally asks Lily out. The problem is, he chose a roundabout way of getting to her. Plus, he stands a high risk of breaking his neck in the process. Told from Remus Lupin's POV. Rated 3rd-5th years for slight language and mild innuendo on James's part. One-shot.
A/N: Quick note to all: I am sorry, but there are no plans for a sequel for PC. I hate to disappoint you all, but I feel that the story is better standing alone, leaving the rest to your imaginations.
very cute! I love the last bit with lily and the windowsill. hehehe! I think you should maybe make another one-shot about this, one that tells about that date...maybe. Just a suggestion. Loved it, keep it up too!
Summary: All his life, Remus has known one thing: Love is not his friend. Love is the enemy for someone like him, which is why he denies it to himself. However, that denial could prove fatal as he and the woman he loves are sent on a mission that risks everything.
A/N: Rated 6th-7th years for later chapters (violence, mostly, but concepts that kids can't comprehend, like noble sacrifice and possibly some sexual content).
I love it! Absolutely wonderful, and after reading your Bio-page, I think any story you write will be absolutely wonderful, no matter how out-of-canon it is, if this story and the Prongs Complex were this good. Keep it up, and good luck on Finals!
*Gasp* Uh-oh. I smell trouble! This was a very good chapter and I will wait for the next one... “But of course you would let the lady have the bed.” “I would if there was a lady involved.” Oooh.. I am surprised all Tonks did was glare...Great mission, and can't wait... *adds author to favorites* I like "Prongs Complex" well, and can't wait for the sequel to that one....
*sniffles* Oh that was beautiful. "Because there’s no ‘Tonks’ in ‘Nymphadora Lupin.” That's sooo romantic. Great job. I love it. I remember reading a bit of this -the first few chapters- but I never finished it. I'm truly sorry, though I guess that means I didn't have to struggle through the lack of updates. HAha. Great story. Sooo cute. Haha. I just read a Charlie Brown comic today 'If the word cute didn't exist, we'd all perish.' haha. It's probably true. Heheh. Great story. I liked this line too: *Remus kiss TOnks, Tonks wakes up* "That sort of thing [the kiss] makes a girl sit up and take notice." Mauahah
One-Shot (for now)
Whoa...that was pretty good. I don't hink you should make it any longer. I mean, it might be kinda cool to see how they fell in love, but I think i can stand on it's own two feet. Maybe find Draco someone else to love. That was be nice for the poor Slytherin. Otherwise, i can stand on it's own.
Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
Hmm... Good chapter.
Author's Response: Hehe. Thanks Me. :-D Just wanted to see something.. I can\'t delete my own reviews. Frustrating.
Summary: After the trauma of his sixth year Harry and his friends enter into their last year of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The trio try to balance passing their exams with fighting Voldemort and planning their futures. Despite all that, romance will fill the air with wedding bells ringing out. This year Harry is in more danger than ever when his enemy finds new ways to try and get the Boy Who Lived. Voldemort’s presence will be felt more than ever as he steals more lives; can Harry find himself before its too late? And what adventures will he have along the way?
If you haven’t read Harry Potter and The Girl Who Lived then I would strongly urge you to do so because if you don’t then this story probably won’t make any sense to you. Be helpful to writers by Reading and Reviewing!
The very last chapter of this fic has been reworked. Please re-read there's more about the kids in there! Also my author's notes on the final chapter have also been added. Ten part fic related to this going up shortly!!
Normally, I would have waited until the end of the story to review (as all the chapters are up) but this chapter was too great to pass up. So funny. That letter to Harry from James was so wonderful, I must've sniffled a few times. Except, James is writing it as if he is already dead, and he's writing it from his grave. But, It is a great chapter anyway. And the discussion between Remus, Arthur, Harry and Ron was genuine. SO funny! *laughs* Wonderful story so far, and I'm sure the rest will be just as good. 37 chapters! I admire you!
Once again, I have to make an exception in my Don't-Review-Until-The-End policy. WHAT THE HECK!?!?!?!?!? What was with Malfoy coming from under the Knight and why was Hermione playing "tonsil-hockey" with him? *Gasp* I really hope everything works out. Other then that, I really like the costume ideas and it really is a great twist to the story. *Goes to finish the intriguing and mouse-clicking story*
Absolutely Brilliant! I loved it soo much. The concepts of this story were weaved together absolutely perfectly to create a story worthy of the title of the seventh book. I can tell that with those last few chapters you had just read HBP (Won-Won, the black hand and a few other little things gave it away) But not matter, it was lovely all the same. I would be interested in reading that ten chapter fic about the important times and I definetly encourage you to continue to write, maybe make it a profession. Thanks for the read and thanks for the laughs and the tears. Oh, maybe you should think about creating a family tree for the 46 members if the Weasley, Potter and Lupin families. It would be thoroughly crazy to see it. Wonderful. *Goes to read One Life Owed*
Summary: Best friends don't kiss. Severus Snape breaks this rule on account of a bet and learns a lesson.
Thank you so much, Ravensgryff, my Beta. Without your revision and guidance, I doubt I would have gotten very far.
It was cute. Jeez, there are times when i feel so sorry for Snape, and then other times I want to wring his neck. Grrr. If you plan on making other chapters, you're doing good.
Um....Ginny's secretly in love with Harry, so she somehow manages to get him away from Ginny. But, HArry gets all angry at Hermione and Draco first, and then...somehow they all end happily ever after. Draco and Hermione. Period. Maybe not Ginny, but hey. It works, doesn't it? Please update soon. :-S
