Hey all fellow authors, readers, Harry Potter fanatics :P,
My name is Rachel and I'm sixteen in May. I'm quiet, kind of shy, a daydreamer and artsy/creative I guess. I like Art - drawing and painting. Most of my stuff is just doodles and sketches which I just sort of keep in a drawer, but I have sketchbooks too. I like writing, i like reading. I like exploring, I like walking in the countryside and feeding the ducks. If I could go back in time, I'd meet Beatrix Potter for a day and we'd go up a hill and paint and write stories about the animals there; I'd meet Shirley Hughes and ask her to teach me how she draws and writes, and I'd go back to Jane Austen's life and find out who Elizabeth Bennet was and whether Mr Darcy exists for every eligible bachelorette!
I like singing, dancing and acting too, but usually only in my room since my dancing is umm...interesting! I hate Maths and science. I wanna kill algebra one day. I love kids and their imaginations. I love looking after them and I like inventing stories and games for them.
I'm doing English language and literature for the the next year (and hopefully after). Writing is a skill that has to be practised to become anything, so I figured, writing stories is pretty much a way to keep me motivated!. I love harry potter and JK Rowling is pure genius. She's my favourite author, hands down. I don't care about all those people who make digs at her by saying she only writes basic literature for kids...so? Just look at this site, dedicated to her :)
Since I was little I've always wanted to write professionally. Nowadays I'd still love to write a book, but realistically that's quite a big dream! Whether or not I publish a book, creative writing is a really useful skill to develop. So writing fanfiction is the way forward! It's far more fun and way less stressful than school will ever be - and no one judges you!
I like general fanfiction, but Harry Potter's all I've ever written. I almost started a Lost fanfic once since I'm really into that show and believe that Kate and Jack are made for one another! Lol. Anyway. At some point, I'll get my next fanfic up. I swear, exams and school are almost NOT worth the effort...but once they're over I am going to SIT DOWN with a HUGE cup of tea and write a fanfic :)
PS: Check out my awesome, wicked banner for "The New Surprise". All the credit goes to sayiansirius, who made it for me. Oh and HPobsession helped ;). Thanks guys!!
Here is the bit for all you lot reading "The New Surprise". Chapter 15 got deleted first time round, so that's why there was a wait. I had to completely re-write it, but I think the 2nd draft has improved a lot, so I'm glad really! Again, my apologies for making you wait!!
Anyway here are the quizzes I liked!
Which Pirates of the Caribbean character are you?
Which HP Kid Are You?
Which Harry Potter Marauder Are You?
What Color Sharpie Are You? (25 Different Colors) Updated Again!
Summary: CHAPTER 15 IS UP!!!! PLEASE READ AND REVIEW, YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!
Ginny and Harry worked together throughout the war to overcome darkness, with some particularly unfortunate outcomes. As she looks back now and remembers their lives, the milestones and major moments, she finds herself lonely and missing her best friend. However, unexpected surprises await her as she moves forward in her life...hopes return as well as those she loves.
Thank you for all the reads so far, keep the reviews coming!

OOHH!!!! DONT - JUST - LEAVE - US - HANGING - THERE!!!!!! sorry i am capable of speech. I liked it! 10/10, except why oh why is there another cliffie??? Lol, i really liked how ron was so comforting and kind to hermione, i thought you made him seem way more mature than in some fics. Well done, and keep ritin, keep updatin, and i cant wait for your pre-quel!!!!!!
Author's Response: thank you i'm writing chappie three right after i type this
Summary: Ron and Hermione finally get together at Bill and Fleurs wedding. a little H/G as well. one-shot. my first fic.. please read and review
Good - but a bit rushed at the end. I didn't really get the ending - does it just end when he kisses her? The kiss was a bit too sudden and there wasn't much dialogue. But other than that it was cute ^^
Summary: Remember when Harry went down to Hagrid's to get Slughorn's memory? The only mention of Ron and Hermione is Lavender demanding to know why Ron was up in the boys' dormatories with Hermione. I, myself, would have rather seen how that played out, and joined Harry later. But, sorrowfully, we didn't, and, thus, a fanfic was born.
Slightly OOC on the part of some characters, but not too much!
Thanks to all who reivewed!!
cool story, short n sweet!!
Author's Response: Ah, now that's what I love to hear! Thanks! you really made my day, and I got a dentention!
oh no...not detention...lol, thanks 4 reviewing my fic :) that made my day 2!
Author's Response: Yuo're fic rocked! The Yule Ball part was awesome!
Summary: Ron finally confesses his feelings of love and adoration to Hermione, much to her (and his) surprise.
Special thanks to my Beta, wishiwereaweasley :-)
WoW!! This story rocks!! It was a really nice, short read and it was sOOOOOO sweet!! Yay for fred and george!! they brought hrmione and ron closer!!!!!
Summary: Dedicated to SecretKeeper, my role model, a writing angel sent from a world where everything is beautiful. Harry must leave for the Final Battle- but there's something... someone holding him back. How can he fight this? His greatest need, his strongest weakness? ďÖAs long as Iím with you, I donít care about breaking rules or stepping outside boundaries. As long as youíre close to me, whatever comes my way, I know Iíll be fineÖ just because youíre there with me. Iíve looked death in the face with you at my side, HarryÖ as long as Iím alive, Iíll be with you.Ē
*Wow- 800 reads! ...but only a few reviews... can you leave me something to go on before you leave? Thanks to everyone who gave this a chance!*
Wow great story!! Like the othr reviewr said, it was intense! Generally speaking, i'm a r/hr shipper, but i've re-read book six and i'm beginning to notice all the harry and hermione moments, and hermione really seems to like harry, i think!!! 10/10 definately!!
Author's Response: Thanks! Finally, someone sees the light!
Summary: This fic picks up right where HBP leaves off. Will Ron and Hermione FINALLY act on their feelings? Harry regrets his decision to dump Ginny, but will he do anything about it? Bill and Fluer's wedding is a hotbed of chaos and romance.
I loved it!! Especially when they were saying "goodbye" to Gryffindor tower. I'm really sad for harry and ginny though!!
Yay chapter 2!! That whole dudley thing was kind of funny!! Go Ron!!!
Summary: Hermione writes her thoughts and feelings down, and sends them to the one she loves.
this is taken from an original poem I wrote, and made HP style.... *note- not meant to rhyme, and this is OOC*
Oh - wow!! I'm normally a Ron/hermione shipper when reading regular HP but for fanfiction i read anything. So I loved this!!!!! It was one of the best HP poems i've read, because it's not too angsty or too fluffy and you feel really sorry for Hermione. I think you should sooo do a sequel but Draco's letter back to Hermione instead! That would be widely appreciated (by me!) But if you don't then it doesn't matter, it's still a great fic! :)
Author's Response: thank you so much. im glad you enjoyed it. im working on dracos letter. that was my intention from the start. i appreciate you taking the time to read this. <3

Ooh that was original and clever I'd have never thought of that myself! I really thought it was good especially for a first fanfic!!!
Summary: The night after Ron was poisoned, Hermione must have felt awful. I mean, she hadn't spoken to him in months. So, what if she went to see him? And what do their Amortentia smells have to do with it all?
