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: Once again, Ron and Hermione are having one of their infamous rows, about something stupid, no less. Somehow, though, this row seems different than the others. Fellow Gryffindors can sense even more tension than usual. The biggest difference is what happens during the row. Will the row become the row that ended Ron and Hermione’s friendship for good, or will it be the famous row that got them together! And where does the Fat Lady and the Room of Requirement fit into this mess? A two-part little ficlet.
Special thanks to GringottsVault711, who let me borrow an idea of hers mentioned in her story, “Marked to Find Your Way Back.” Read it, it’s really good!
Aww how cute. :-D and yay, you managed to work the room of requirement into it! I love that room ;) its where all the romance action happens.
sorry its taken me so long to review this, but ive been writing/updating my own story so i saw this again and was like 'oh yeah!' so i read ch. 2. very good!
Author's Response: its ok, thanks though
That was a cool start. I thought the fight was great, because you kept the characters very canon. Ron kissing her was predictable (not in a bad way though) but running away was very Ronnish. :) Again, nice job and I'm glad I read it.
Author's Response: i love ron...hes so cute
Summary: Hermione come shome from work at theMinistry to a surprise: Chocolate Frogs. Lots of Chocolate Frogs. What is Ron up to? A sugary sweet one shot.
Awww there should be more one-shots like this! JKR could do with reading this, maybe she'd get a move on with the ron/hermione situation! Cute and sweet, and above all, original!
Author's Response: Wow, what a compliment, I can\'t thank you enough. And I really can\'t wait to see what JKR finally does to get these two together!
