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!
hello agian i suddenly remembered that the 15th reviewer gets a fic dedicated to them! soo...
Author's Response: Well, I might be able to come up with something, but I don\'t know if it still counts, sorry.... If a story come\'s up and the main character is called Rache, then it was inspired by you, okay?
15th reviewer!!! Lol, does it still count? hehe :) lol
Author's Response: Yep! It still counts, lol. If it doesn\'t get put up on here, it\'ll be on HPFF!
OOh!! That would be so cool!!!! This story is in my favorites by the way. What happens if sum1 is the 50th of 100th reviewer?
Author's Response: Well, If I get 50 of 100 reviews, I think I'll buy them an aeroplane! Okay, maybe a helicopter, or a broom, or a MOP! Yes... Well, seriously? I don't know... Something nice..
lol...you dont really need to dedicate a story to me! Are you going to write another general harry potter one though?
Author's Response: Perhaps, perhaps not. I\'ve been pretty bored latley, so you never know.... (hint hint)
Ooh I loved it!! I thought it was so well written, and I like the lyircs^^. I imagined it to be hermione and harry, but it could've been draco....hmmm...this story definately deserves a 10!!
Author's Response: Well, I wouldn't tell you even if you were right so, well, ner ner. But yeah, I love the song sooo much :). Thanks for the 10!
It was very profound and thought-provoking. You caught my interest. thanks for the read ;)
Ah no, too sad, too sad!! Not another sad fic!! lol, it was really beautiful, except that is it finished there? Because you lefta kind of clifffie, i was curious!! Ah well, good work, yay i'm the second reviewer....
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing and i agree it was a little too sad. i'm planning to write more cheerful ones in the future. I left it a cliffie because i was getting too sad writing it and isnt it fun to sometimes make your own ending? Thanks again for reviewing! :P
PS It left me a bit confused, but don't be put off by that i just didn't really get the ending, bt oh well u rote it so i guess u shld know!
Author's Response: basically he found out that the spell his great-great-great grandfather(or something like that) invented had killed hermione and he had to go to the graveyard where she'd died and cast the spell that the book had mentioned on her body to vanish the evil spirit that lurked in the graveyard. is that what confused you?
Ohhhh...i didn't really get how he'd banished the evil spirit before... i thought he was trying to, like, revive hermione or something...okay its clear to me now ^^ thanks so much!! Still 10!
Author's Response: i wish he could revive hermione...it would be so much happier that way, but your welcome and thanks for the ten!!
Ooh i can't wait for chapter 2! This is in my favorites!!!!
Soryy sorry!!! Yeah, i saw that it had been updated today, lol *slaps forehead in homer simpsonlike way* can't wait!!!!!!
Author's Response: Well, I'm sorry, as of this morning I heard some very unfortunate news... I HAVE MORE EDITING TO DO!!!! GRRRR!!! DON'T BLAME ME!!! BLAME WHOEVER IS SO STRICT THAT THEY WON'T LET PEOPLE POST STORIES WITH RUN-ON SENTANCES!!!
YOU have GOT to update soon!!! Sorry if that sounds forcing!!! Can't wait for chapter two!!
Author's Response: Thank you, and yes it does sound forcing but, I'll say it once, and I'll say it again... CHAPTER 2 IS IN QUEUE PEOPLE! i HAVE UPDATED! iT'S THE ADMIN OR THE MODS THAT ARE TAKING SO LONG! i'M JUST AS ANXIOUS AS YOU ARE!!!
I read your bio, and i know exactly what you mean!!! I had to update like 3 times once and it was sooo annoying. I don't have a beta either, sometimes theyre helpful, sometimes theyre just over-critical. Soz, i won't scream UPDATE next time, lol. ^^
Wow! This first chapter is good!! Please update soon!
Author's Response: Don't worry, chappy two is in da queue!
Wow excellent twist! I was so NOT expecting that!! I feel really bad for ron though! When I read those three words in bold my stomach leapt in surprise!!!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it!! I felt really bad for Ron too - and I wrote it!! Lol, thanks for reviewing!!
Kkkeewwwlll!! i liked the end to that chapter! ^_^
Wow, cool!! Update soon, I really wana see what happens! Yay, I'm the first reviewer!! i loved the flashback, and all its description, i really felt sorry for hermione when ron didn't kiss her!!! wonderful!!
Lol!!!! This is hilarious!!!! I'm soo lovin it. I laughed about hermione and pince being good friends and the dewy decimal system LOL. hehe cant wait for an update. PS i noticed the 'sorry' thing too but its not 2 much of a big deal!
Author's Response: LOL! That's great, because I'm really hoping to make a career in writing. There's a story I'm working on to be published now, 'cause I'm trying to get a book published ASAP. Thanks much for the review!
lol yeah, i'd like to see a sequel as well!! That would be cool :D
Author's Response: Im working on two fics right now (both harry ginny) and I've got writers block on the sequel... so you can see which one is taking priority
Author's Response: scratch that not doing second one- figured out a way to tie 'em together!
Wow.....That was really kind of intense!!! I thought it was beautiful, and I noticed how much it seemed like Romeo and Juliet, the language, the ending. But that is a good thing!! Great!! Yay I'm the first reviewer....
Author's Response: Thanks for the great review... I was really nervous cause it got rejected the first time! I went for that romeo-and-juliet-esque thing so Im glad youve enjoyed it
