Hi there! I would just happen to be named Liz. I'm your average high school student from Texas, obsessed with most things esoteric and British and sci-fi/fantasy. Explains the Harry Potter and Doctor Who fangirlism, yes?
About me, et cet: Love the twins and Marauders, canon ships but I'll read anything, and while I am beta-accredited, I really just don't have time what with high school and whatnot. I know I've not been around for a long time, but what with Deathly Hallows and Movie 5, I think the ol' inspiration will kick in once again.
The Prongs Complex really is, now I think about it, a stand-alone work, and I'm not planning on any other sequels/prequels. Sorry, everyone.
Reviews are nice, if you're in that sort of a mood. I know that often one isn't, but they are cheery sorts of things.
Summary: They looked back and had no regrets, because it was for Remus. A vignette.
That was amazing! This is something I've always thought about--how much pain and sacrifice the other Marauders had to go through to do what they did, and you captured it perfectly. Your writing style is really great. The feelings came across so clearly, and...it was great. There are a lot of things I want to say but can't seem to put into words. Oh, well. Awesome!
Summary: A poem which contains revelations of a painful past and present. Short and sweet.
Short, but eloquent and powerful. I really do feel that this was the work of Snape; you captured him well.
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m really glad you liked it, and that you took the time to review.
Summary: Bearing in mind the events of book 6, this story now no longer fits into the overall plot of Harry Potter. However, I shall continue to write it regardless, keeping it as a separate story. Therefore, please remember that it will not be influenced by book 6. It's the beginning of Harry, Ron and Hermione's seventh year at Hogwarts and change is in the air. Unfortunately, Ron seems to be the only one who doesn't sense it.
TOP NOTCH, SPOT ON, GOOD ON YA, AND ALL THAT GOOD STUFF. Great fic. Love it, love it, love it. Keep writing, I eagerly await more!!
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. =)
Ohmigosh. Shock. Amazement. I never expected them to fall off. I thought that Hermione'd be too nervous, that Slytherin would lose and Malfoy would be mad as hell--but I never expected them to fall off. That was really sweet of Draco, to put Hermione first. Healer King is right, they are in complete denial. I can't wait for Ch. 32--oh, and I voted at the Dramione awards. TUP!!
Author's Response: Myriad of emotions, isn\'t it? The fall had been planned from the very beginning of this story, when I first started writing it. Everything else just fell in place as I wrote it. Yup, he did put her first, and now what? Heehee… Healer King made a premature prediction, but maybe it’s time for it to come true perhaps?? =D And thanks for voting at the Dramione Awards! It means so much to me!!
We miss you, sparx! Hope you come back soon!!
Author's Response: Awww, I missed you guys too, Cherry and Phoenix Feather! And the good news is that I\'m back and have updated!
And even though this chapter wasn't a cliffie, we're still going to form a mob outside your house for making us wait. ^^
So do you actually read all your reviews, or do you just acknowledge that they exist and leave it at that? Because personally I would take the latter.
Summary: A Shakespearean Parody written in a style akin to the original (well almost) featuring Fred and George Weasley
This crazy author was bored ^_^ This is my laughable attempts to massacre some the famous play-wright's most notable lines. ^_^
Hmm...I love Shakespearean comedy...I love the Weasleys... I love Love Potions... BRILLIANT!! I will be watching this fic. I love the rhyme scheme, you did that really well.
Author's Response: ^_^ Thanks. Glad you enjoyed reading this silliness as much as I did writing them :)
Summary: Nymphadora Tonks is deeply in love with Remus Lupin. But he refuses to accept her, causing her tormet deep within her heart and soul. Will he ever like her more than as a friend?
Wow! Great, fabulous--you really communicate her pain. Must... read... more... else... might... die... *gack*
Author's Response: Hi! Remember me? I was another one of those random people going on about how weird it would be if Remus got drunk... Oh well never mind. Merci beaucoup for your kind words, and don't die, the next poem is in queue! Thanks ^_^
Author's Response: Oh and I really like your fics, they are really good :)
Summary: It's another day in Harry Potter's life at Hogwarts, but things aren't what they seem to be. Harry thinks that all he has to worry about is his exams but he finds himself in middle of a weird fan fiction filled with clichés and mixed up plotlines.
How very, very silly indeed. I do like it, a little silliness is great. I love the casual mention of outrageous shipping, and the twist at the end (Exploding Snap? Hah, a teenaged male and two hot girls playing Exploding Snap in an empty classroom!). Plus, the Hogwarts, a History joke made me laugh.
Author's Response: Thanks, Liz, for that wonderful review. It\'s funny how nobody will believe that they played Exploding Snap ;-)
You people and your dirty thoughts *lol*
Summary: Regulus Black, on Voldemort, life, death, and his beloved, insufferable, arrogant brother. One-shot, mild HBP spoilers.
Okay, my last review is from back when I was an idiot who knew nobody, so I'm going to do a little better with this one.
Regulus, as a character whom we know absolutely nothing about, is characterized brilliantly. You'd think he lived next door to you. (He doesn't, does he? Because that would be unfair to the tenth power.)
You portray him very well, as an unloved younger son who tried to please people but ended up doing something for himself. Most people think he and Sirius hated each other, but I like to explore the possibility that they, perhaps, loved each other. I love the line "The look on Sirius's face was enough of a cross to bear." Poor kid. You really had them portrayed as brothers here, and I liked that for it's uniqueness (uniquity?).
The scene with the Unforgivable Curse was really...heartbreaking. It was someone he never had any malice for...but he did it anyways. You write "The Reluctant Death Eater" very well, you know that?
He's a bit mad, isn't he? Regulus, I mean. It'd be interesting to explore that. Possibly it was caused by his experiences.
All right, I'm babbling. Great job, as usual--constructive crit, you might want to look to someone else, as I can rarely find flaws in your work. Perhaps it would have been interesting to have a small segment about why he joined the Death Eaters in the first place, and how he felt about it when he joined (since he couldn't bear being one, what was the thing that made he do it in the first place?). But it would have ruined the pacing, so I suppose it's a story for another time.
Very poetic. I loved it. Regulus is a mysterious character, and I think you captured his motives and feelings perfectly. There's that little touch of insanity that just makes him such a wonderful character. Sirius was characterized perfectly, as well. Great.
Summary: When Remus meets Tonks for a drink at the Three Broomsticks, he gets rather more than he bargained for...
Oh. My. God. I LOVED IT!! Remus is my favorite character (Tonks, too) and you kept them in character SO WELL! Good job, spot on, and all that. I wish it wasn't over. It made me laugh really hard. Perfect 10.
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Excellent dialogue!!! Snappy, intelligent--just the way a love-hate relationship should work. I love the "food-that-thinks-it's-smart" bit *I laughed out loud and scared my dog*. I never thought that Nagini could be an Animagus--brilliant!!
Well done, smashing, good work!
...and if it's not impolite to ask, I saw on one of your forum posts that you make avatars..
Author's Response: I do. Finally people responding. I'll pm you one of these days to get your request. I'm extremely sorry about the lack of updates, but i have been really sick, and then i went home from school for Christmas were my limited internet time was spent on my boyfriend. An update is comming soon I promise!
Summary: Snape has some unfinished business with Dumbledore.
Submitted by lunafish of Ravenclaw in response to the extra credit challenge "Letters to Heaven." Posted before DH.
Wow. Beautifully written. Since HBP, I've reread the books to try and get some insight into Severus's character... and you did a brilliant job of capturing that...well, Snape-ly manner is the only adjective I can think of. Wonderfully done. 10/10.
Author's Response: "Snape-ly"--hmmm...I like that. Thank for that and your other kind words!
Summary: Auror-in-training Kingsley Shacklebolt is learning to blend in with the crowd in downtown London. There, he meets a small, lost girl, and learns how much impact a simple act of kindness can really have.
Wow, that was really powerful. I really like how tiny things can make huge differences. On a related note, I don't think the moral, if you will, would have come across quite so clearly if you hadn't put in that tiny little line about how Harry would have been dead if not for Hermione. I smiled when I read that line, and then went back and reread it when I had finished the story, just to revel in its greatness.
I've never thought too much about Kingsley in a human sense; you captured the essence of what we know about him very well and built up on what we know of him. Well done.
Summary: Entry for the October Monthly Challenge, 'Faith In Dark Places'. I'm Madnessisme, from Slytherin.
One-shot, describing Sirius's first moments in Azkaban.
Wow. Great. Fabulous. It was very...Sirius-y, for lack of better adjective. Good job!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it, and that I managed to capture the Sirius-ness (snort) of the situation. Thanks for the feedback! :D
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.
Well, hope everybody liked it!! Obviously you did, or else you wouldn't be reviewing. Ha. Looking for betas for my other fics!
Wow! Thanks! Sorry to disappoint, but currently I'm not planning on a sequel--this was just a one shot. My next fic, Wolf's Bane, is in queue, though, so stick with me!
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).
Glad you like. I haven't gotten any other comments from my betas on OOCness, but thank you so much for telling me! Now that you mention it... I might have to do some revising. Thank you!
Thanks so much for the constructive crit, people!! Chapter Two is going through that last beta stage, so it should be in queue shortly!! Thanks to those who wished me well on my Biology practical. NO idea why I was so worried--easier than faking a Divination essay.
