Bio:
I'm a truck driver who was introduced to Harry Potter by my daughter in 1999. The books are fantastic, the movies are some of the best made, and the fanfic is better than that I've read in Star Trek, Buffy, and even the Xena universes.

BTW, the Sorting Hat put me exactly where I belong, in Gryffindor.

When Worlds Die by MagEd
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 20]

Summary: In any man who dies there dies with him,
his first snow and kiss and fight . . .
Not people die but worlds die in them

~Yevgeny Yevtushenko, "People"

His twin is dead, and as far as George can see, the whole world might as well have died, too. In other words, this is the story of how George Weasley grieved in seven steps. *one-shot*

The "official" stages don't matter; what matters is you told an amazing story that tugged at the heart of this old truck driver. Congrats!

Now for some serious criticism:

Really, it was a great story with no weaknesses I could see, and I'm very picky! I've lost most of my relatives, some far too young, and I went through similar stages, insulted people, shut myself off from them, and finally learned to live again. And to risk love again.

Author's Response: Thanks very much! I'm glad you think the "official" stages irrelevant, as I do and you enjoyed this and thought it realistic. Pulling on heartstrings is always something I strive for in my writing :)

I'm also uncertain as to Snape's knowledge of the Marauder's Animagus forms, but I do think you scored a bull's-eye on his character!

Author's Response:

Hello Trucker,

yeah, I slipped up there, didn't I? *shakes head in irritation at herself*.

Never mind.

At least his characterisation seems to be closer to pat than I'd hoped for (phew). Glad you enjoyed.

 

Thanks for R & R-ing,

This was both funny and heart-warming. What on earth will you do for an encore?

Author's Response:

Hello Trucker,

I'm SO pleased that you liked it! It seemed high time that Algie got a telling off for being so irresponsible and Albus Dumbledore was just the right wizard to deliver it! As for my encore...I have a few ideas! Hope you like them too!

Thanks for R & R-ing,

That was hysterical! I hope you can find other stories for my favorite matriarch with an odd taste in hats.

Author's Response:

Hello (again) Trucker!

Well I AM flattered that you read all three of my stories! That's a lovely compliment in and of itself :)

As a matter of fact, I do have another Augusta fic - well, she's a supporting character (but she seems to be stealing the show). It's a Harry Potter/LOTR crossover and, yep, she's kicking up a storm in Middle Earth.

Sounds bonkers, eh?

But I have so much fun writing her chapters, I can't begin to tell you!

Unfortunately, I can't post it here because they don't allow crossovers, but it is on fanfiction dot net under the name 'Kara's Aunty' (as opposed to 'KarasAunty' here), so if you fancy reading a REALLY unusual HP/LOTR crossover, you'll have to pop over there.

Thanks again for R & R-ing,

Scenes from Shell Cottage by WeasleyMom
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 128]

Summary: This fic is a series of missing moments from the time H/R&H were at Shell Cottage, beginning immediately after they Disapparated from Malfoy Manor. JKR shows us what was going on with Harry, but this is my version of what could have happened with Ron and Hermione after one of the most emotional/disturbing events in the entire series.

UPDATED June 2010 When I first wrote this fic, I didn't know what a beta reader was, and frankly, it showed. Thanks so much to Natalie for helping me polish this up and make it more readable. Thanks also to both Julia and Carole, whose helpful comments in the review section allowed me to make some much-needed corrections during the rewrite. I would love to know what you think ~ reviews are very much appreciated!

This was nominated in the 2010 Quicksilver Quill Awards for Best Canon Romance.

That was your first HP fanfic? Wow! The only errors I could see were in failing to capitalize a few Wizarding terms. You told a great story and hit your characterizations well.

Author's Response: You must send me a pm or something and let me know what terms, or it will drive me insane. I've recently started rereading the whole series, so I'm sure I will come across them, but maybe not for some time. Help a girl out and let me know what I need to capitalize. ;) I'm so glad you liked the story and thought the characterization was good. Thanks so much for reading and taking time to leave a review. I appreciate it.

 

What Better Way by MagEd
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 47]

Summary: I hadn't seen him since I was eleven, but he had a rather distinct look about him. It was hard, after all, to forget that black hair that stuck up in the back and the bright green eyes behind those glasses. And the scar — I had always thought it neat to have a scar shaped like a lightening bolt.

Jane Martin sees the odd, quiet boy she went to primary school with years ago in a jewellery shop and she's shocked to see how much things have changed for the boy with taped glasses and baggy clothes. *one-shot*

This story was atypical of the proposal stories I've read lately -- it has good characterizations, was well-paced, and rang true emotionally. Well Done!

Author's Response: Thank you! I was trying to get away from a lot of the archetypes of romantic fiction and root the story more in the characters. Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Author's Response: Thanks for your review! :)

 

Summary:

Elijah Macmillan was working over late...again. Mister Blotts charged him with the onerous task of cleaning out the hated 'Rejected' room of the print shop, and judging by the amount of files waiting to be sorted, it was going to be a while.

However, amidst his dusty tribulations, Elijah happened upon a rather remarkable artifact. in the form of outtakes from the Gilderoy Lockhart bestseller, Year with the Yeti. Curiosity overtakes the overworked young man, and in the course of reading these excerpts, he finds a new perspective on one of the modern era's most misunderstood individuals.

In most fiction we have the liberty of b&w characters, with clear-cut heroes and villains. You've told a great little story by adding some depth to someone most of us reviled without considering how he became who and what he was in COS. Thanks for the great read!

Author's Response:

That's the true beauty of the universe that JKR has built for us - the gift of hope in every character (except ol' Moldy Voldy). No one is just that big a git to the point that that there is not a redeeming quality. Lockhart, for all of his many, many, many personality flaws, was never really a villain so much as a misguided character. All of us have good in us, no matter how hard some may hide it. I simply delved into what I saw as his soul and tried to bring some of it out; I knew it was there, and I also knew that he, as a character, deserved to have his story told.

Thank you so much for the review; they're like candy, chocolate, and a variety of other pleasant things for us authors. I'm so glad you liked it. :-)

Take care,

~Jess

A Touch of Midas by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary:

Albus Potter was dying.

As his brother's body was ravaged by an insanely rare disease, James Potter set out on an incredible journey in search of a mythical creature that everyone was sure was extinct, because if he did not, the cure for Albus's disease could not be concocted and he would die a slow, painful death.

If the journey in itself was not strange enough, James encountered a legendary figure, who agreed to guide him through his quest through many lands.


This is ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor of Ravenclaw House, and this is my Submission to the Eighth Round of the Gauntlet. This entry placed second overall.

Excellent story so far, but I'm confused by the following sentence:

Author's Response: Ah, thanks for the heads up about the typo. It happens (too often, I'm afraid). It should be 'left him with a key.' I'll get that fixed, and thank you so much for reading.

The Power of a Smile by IckleRonnieX
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 5]

Molly Weasley is asked to speak to those mothers coping with the death of their children, who are part of an organisation called H.O.M.E. (Hospice for Orphaned Mothers of England).

Molly comes with a simple and amazing request: to smile.

This is IckleRonnieX of Gryffindor writing for the H.O.M.E prompt in the Winter Snows challenge at the Beta Boards

George's joke was lame; his timing was perfect. Nice story, with a moderate hanky factor.

Author's Response: Hi, Trucker! Oh, gods, George's story was one of the lamest things I've ever written. (I think it shows my lack of creativity and sense of humour) Oh well... :p I'm happy you thought the story was nice! And thanks for leaving a review! It was very lovely of you! -Ronnie Xxx

 

Summary: Aberforth Dumbledore was once infamous throughout the land for casting Inappropriate Charms on goats. He never responded to the claims, never gave his side of the story and lived with an odd reputation for decades.

But now he wants to set the record straight before Rita Skeeter has a chance to twist things furthur awry.

I truly am enjoying this story. The only thing I'd try to talk you into changing if I were your beta is the overuse of "wisely" when someone is reacting to something. It stands out because you rarely use any other adverbs in describing how things are said or reacted to.

Author's Response: Thank you for sending me a review! :) I'm glad to hear that you are liking the story. When I go back through the story and reedit it again, I'll keep your suggestion in mind. I hope that you like the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
