"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So, I'm no longer in high school, which means my penname is rather outdated.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: A Potions assignment gone wrong sends Harry and Ginny into the past while Lily and James are sent into the future. How will Ginny and Harry cope with the Marauders? Better yet, how will Lily and James cope with Ron and Hermione? Will they ever get back to their rightful eras? Read on to find out. Please read and review. From what my fans say, its funny. You decide for yourself.
Well, it's definetly not the best I've ever read. It's rather choppy, and kinda unbelieveable-but I guess that's the idea. Um...is this finished?
Summary: Harry has been dreading this moment, he can't, he won't, let Ginny die...as the final battle comes down to him and Voldemort will his heart, which is broken from losing so many he has loved, be able to defeat the darkest wizard of the age...
Wooh. We had the same idea about Harry dying for Ginny. I just read this, obviously, and it was quite good. I love all of your one-shots/stories. Great job. Check out "the End of Only One Beginning" for my version, if you want.
Summary: Ron and Hermione are getting married! The twins certainly can't let such a great opportunity pass them by. This will be the most memorable Weasley wedding yet. Sequel to Mission Accomplished.
Haha. I'm guessing the absence of "said George" and "exclaimed Fred" is your style, and I like it. One little problem about this one: the groom doesn't see the bride. Bad luck...unless that's only in the Muggle world...Hm...Good job though
Summary: "What can I say?" James shrugged his shoulders. "We are just obviously,"
James laughed, "Meant to be."
Lily Evans and James Potter share absolutely nothing in common, not even their feelings for each other. Lily, perceived as a ‘model student,’ detests the handsome, popular, Quidditch star James, who she thinks to be something of a git. James, on the contrary, has been infatuated with Lily for years, and has let her and the whole school know it.
As time progresses into Voldemort’s ‘reign of terror,’ the two have to learn to trust, tolerate, and love each other.
Please note, this story is incomplete, and will likely remain so for a long time. I apologize!
Well It is a pretty good story. I think you portrayed James very well, his being persistant and well- arrogant. Anyway, good job. I think you should update this one soon, as well as "Dear Lily". I read that one before this, thanks to a commenter on my own fic (its a James/Lily), but they are both pretty good. Great Job!
Summary: Sometimes, life just becomes too much for Harry Potter. When he's lost in depression and huddled in the rain, can Ginny cheer him up? R&R, please. One-shot!
Stupid umbrella! That was cute. Very descriptive and creative. Hehehe. I loved the other One shot, "The Forget Me Do Chew" I never would've guessed that HArry would've done that. hehe. Now, I am going to read another story...
Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
First... I think "muggle" should be capitalized.
Second..... I can't quite put my finger on it, and it would be stupid to say that it going to fast, b/c you've drawn it out spectactularly, but it was almost like... I don't know. I have no diea what I'm talking about, don't mind me.
-I liked the thunder while HErmione was talking. Very nice.
-*happy, cheesy, girly sigh* That was brilliant.. he kissed her! Somehow, I knew he would.
-*laughs* I loved Harry's elbow-to-tongue statement. Very nice.
OOOH!! I don't like Pansy! And I can't believe Harry and Ron are letting themselves get pulled into this. ARGH!!!!
Great chapter, keep it up!
Author's Response: I think I know what you mean about the second comment you made. After all this while of writing this fic, I found it kinda hard to believe that I was finally going to push them together. The story\'s not going fast, you\'re right, because we have here 36 chapters and we still have a few more to go. But it felt strange... Yet right somehow. Am I making sense?? Hahaha... Thanks LaneTechFreshie!
Oooh...I just read blackpunk's review... I had forgotten about those... She's smart.... Very smart.... Could that be it? Brilliant....
I LOVE IT! I can NOT wait to see what this dinner is gonna be like! AH! Anyway, imaging Draco in denims/jeans or topless- really, either is fine for me! That whole Peeves thing...I think something is clicking...Keep up the absolutely fabulous work, and I hope your exams went well!
Author's Response: Hahaha, I'm glad you do! nd I hope you like the dinner as well. It should be out soon in fact. Oooo, jeans and topless, I decided to add both images in actually. Double the effect! ;) I was really undecided on whether to add that scene or not, but I had to. It sets the stage for a later scene. Thanks for the review! Exmas went well too, thanks for asking!
I just wanted to say, Congratulations on the win! It's a really great story, and you definetly deserved it. :-)
Author's Response: Thank you so much, LaneTechFreshie! It’s definitely thanks to you guys! Without all of you wonderful readers, I wouldn't have won it for sure! =D
AH! I loved it. They are definetly in serious denial. I really want to comment on nearly every sentence, but as I can't, I will just say that I love it soooooo much! It's absolutely wonderful. I have no idea how you have managed to write all of this. It's splendid. Jeez, you're gonna end up having a ego as bad as Draco's by the end of this story. Oi. Hehe. I love it. When I read it last night I was laughing so hard...I tried to keep it in though b/c is was about 10. Anyway, I had to review this morning b/c i got Avada Kedavra'd yesterday. Hehe. Great Job!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, denial is definitely an issue here. It would be great if you could comment on every sentence! But that might take you a while and I don’t think you’d wanna spend so much of time on one review. But thanks for the thought! Sometimes, I wonder how I managed to write all this too. It seems almost surreal considering I started this ages ago. But you guys keep me going, really. Hahaha… and with all the nice thing you all say, I really hope I don’t end up having as big a head as Draco! Good to see that the chapter had you laughing out loud— laughter’s always good. =D I'm glad you managed to leave a review despite getting Avada Kedavra’d. I know how that can be like…
As soon as I pressed the "submit" button, I remembered a few things. First, there is a sentence where you write 'her' instead of 'his'. "Draco rolled her eyes. He slumped back into the couch, murmuring what a total waste of time this was under his breath." And then, congrats so much on the awards. You earned them.
Author's Response: Ah, thank you so much for pointing all of that out! I have already corrected it. I can get really careless sometimes… Also, thank you for your well-wishes. I think I've said this a million times, but I’ll say it again because it’s sooo true— I wouldn't have been able to win those awards without you guys. =D
I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that the part with the "thump-thump"s was EJAU's? Very nice. And if it wasn't- it's still very nice. X"D
*LAUGH* Ha. Love the scene with the portraits- and after that. Brilliant. Funny too, but great.
HA! Loved Hermione's letter, especially the bit where Hermione mentions she's been to the library. SOOO perfect. :-D
ANd... I kinda like how you didn't make H and D kiss in this one. I mean, I kinda wanted them to at times, but... it works. Nice work. Though... I don' tknow if Draco could really "roll around on the couch laughing." that was a bit hard to believe. But, VERY good, otherwise! Are we going to see Jinx soon?! Jynx? Huh...
I don't like Lucius, but then again, I have to appriciate him for thinking up this whole plot. But if I appriciate him, that must mean that I love you for thinking of Malfoy thinking up the plot. I also love Jinx! Best character in the world! Hehe. Great story, much love! I like how Draco calmed Hermione down in such a way, and how he was so wonderful. I am really starting to wish that those pajamas didn't have pink pom-poms. the sheep I can imagine- the pom-poms just make me think of Hermione as some type of clown. Oh well, I love it anyway. I wonder just who Malfoy Sn. helper is, and what will happen when Draco and Hermy get the Love-Knot off. Will it be with a "Marry me?" or with a spell? Hm...wondering and hoping!
Author's Response: I don’t like Lucius as well, but I have to admit, he does come in handy once in a while! =D Like you said, it was through him that I start this story in the first place. I love Jinx too! She’s awesome. The whole Draco calming Hermione down was a sudden stroke of inspiration— an old teacher of mine used this tactic on us to calm us down before a school performance. Haha, I know the pink pompoms sound bad, but they just serve to add to the ugliness when I first wrote it up. Lots of things are yet to come and your questions will be answered eventually! So keep wondering… *wink* =D
I have to say, that was an...interesting chapter; don't worry, "interesting" can mean many things in my vocab. It was gosh darn funny first of all, if not what I was thinking what was going to happen. I just hope Hermione doesn't do something so incredibly stupid that she'll never be able to live. HEehe. Keep it up (I say that too much) and I hope to read the 26th chapter of fabulousness soon.
Author's Response: Hey, thank you! I was a little worried when you said 'interesting' in the beginning, but as I read on, I was much relieved. About Hermione doing something so incredibly stupid that she won't be able to live... Well, we'll see! =D Anyways, thanks for the review and look out for the 26th chapter in 2006!
SPARX I'M GONNA KILL YOU! Wait...bad idea...really bad idea...then there wont be a 32...oh man. I want you to know that THAT was an absolutely, positivly, undoubtedly, specatcularly, brilliant and heart stopping chapter! I really was NOT breathing as they fell! Really! That was really really reallly good! Wow. I love the "pillow talk" as someone else called it, and I love Jinx (She's the greatest!) and I love everything else.....OH man. now I gotta wait until the 14th...and then a few days after that! GOSH DARN IT! *deep breath* sorry, that was kinda crazy. Great chapter, keep it up!
Author's Response: Please don’t, LaneTechFreshie!! And like you said, if you did, there won’t be a chapter 32 now, would there? Hahaha… However, despite wanting to murder me, thank you for thinking that this chapter was good! I know the cliffhanger I left you all with was evil, but I couldn\'t let the opportunity to slip by, could I? Heee. The pillow talk was a good addition, I thought. it helped indicate where Hermione and Draco’s relationship was heading to. Jinx is awesome too, isn\'t she? Love her too. I\'m sorry you had to wait for such a long, long time for me to update because of my exams, but I\'m back now, so I should update soon! And I totally understand that it was crazy. Thanks for the awesome review dear! =D
it's very obvious that Draco is trying ot hide his true feelings. I love this story, as I am sure you know. Gosh...you have near 2000 reviews!!! granted, 100 of them are people yelling at the mods. Hehe. Great story. I don't think this chapter was as good as some of the other ones, or as good as it could've been. I was half expecting Draco to kiss her, but I guess he will eventually. Oooh...can't wait! I really can't! Yes I can. :-) Just don't take too long, but make it as good as you can.
NOOOO! Darn you exams! But that is okay, because I will make myself wait as patiently for the next chapter in this funny, witty, and very nice work of art! Absolutely wonderful, though in this chapter there were a few strange wordings like when Draco kissed Simone; did he kiss her lips, or did he kiss her hand? I suggest you just look over that. Another thing is at the end; Hermione says something about a double date not sounding so bad, as if it was her idea- um, shouldn't she be saying the opposite?
Other then those few, oh so few, problems, this chapter was absolutely wonderful! Good luck by the way!
They're over! The darned exams are over! So thank you so much for waiting. About the strange wordings, I have looked over and changed it, so I do hope it's clearer now.
“I guess that double date you were so fondly talking about doesn’t sound too bad now.” ---> I'm guessing this is the line you're talking about, right? I think there's a slight confusion about this line. Hermione doesn't say it as if it's her idea, but she says it sarcastically because she has had her revenge on Draco. Does it make sense now? If it doesn't, let me know, and I'll omit it!
I guess this is what I get for rushing through a chapter. So many mistakes! Haha... Really sorry, my bad. I hope the next one isn't as terrible. I have looked over it, but you never know. I'm really careless like that.
Anyways, thank you so muhc for pointing all of that out to me, and thanks for the luck and the review!
Well, I agree with some of the other reviewers, and I do prefer the slow pace D & H are going at. I love this fic! So funny, and cute, and wonderfully written! Keep it up! 11/10
Author's Response: It always makes me really happy when readers appreciate the pace at which the story’s going. Thank you for the review and for the 11/10!

*sigh* Brilliance. Once again. Maybe not in the time deptartment, but the excellence made up for it. Great chapter, made me laugh more than once. Definetly more then once. :-) Keep it up.
And you're not a terrible author- you're great, just bad at time.
If it was exams- i know exactly what you mean. I just took my AP US History test and I am SO GLAD that it's over. Sigh. I'll look forward to the next chapter.
WOw. That last review was insane! Reeeeally long. WOw. Anyway, I definetly voted for your story, except that there were a whole bunch of other stories to vote for at the same time- of wait, yours was in a certain category, so I voted in that category- and all the other categories....hmmm....Whatever. I love this story. SO great! This chapter was good, it showed how much Draco and Hermione really have changed. A while ago I had gone back to reread (which I never did...hehe) and I was surprised at how much they changed. You have done that change subtly and so convincing, that I can almost imagine this as the real thing. I love it. I hope your cold/illness is better and that you are feeling much better. I just repeated myself. Whoops. *smiles sheepishly* Plaigarism? *gasp* I can understand the idea of someone taking your stuff, in that it is a spectacular idea, one which I have no idea how in the world you came up with it. I am guessing one night as you lay in bed spacing out, eh? Maybe not. Well, don't feel bad for the delay- wait, there was a delay? REally? I didn't notice. You post these chapters so steadily and surely...you don't have to worry about us dying of no updates. Don't worry. Even then, the chapters are so wonderfully long- and yet they go so fast- that they are rewarding. Once again, I love it! How many chapters have you written to this?
Author's Response: Yup, it was!! And I love such loooong reviews! It gives me a chance to ramble on and on and on and on… Teehee. Thank you so much for voting for me in the Dramione Awards even though the process sounds a little lengthy. It means a lot to me that you think TUP is worth being voted for! And you're right; Hermione and Draco certainly have changed quite a lot (thanks for actually going back to reread to check on that point!). I have tried my best to bring about this change subtly, and it’s great that it’s working the way I planned it to. I was always afraid things would conk up somewhere in between, but so far, the story has been pretty good to me, and so have you guys. =D Love you all! I am feeling much better, so thank you for asking. The illness has gone completely, making it much easier to write without having to fall asleep in front of the computer. Yes, plagiarism, but it has been settled! How I came up with it? Hmmm, I think I was indeed lying in bed and spacing out, thinking of very unlikely scenarios and viola! Somehow I came up with TUP. I'm glad you didn’t notice the delay, even though there was a small, itsy-bitsy little delay. But by you saying that you didn’t makes me feel much better about it! So thank you so much for this wonderful review! Erm, so far I have about 30-odd chapters, but I'm not too sure how long this story will go on till… From the looks of it, it still has quite a way to go.
