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!
oh and i hate miranda, she's a mean nasty little bitch!! Ron needs to forget her, she's soooo horrible i hope hermione beats her up again!!! ^^
Author's Response: Good good. Hopefully more will come along soon
Sorry youve had so much work. But this story is truly GREAT. My sis is doing english lit too (shes not at uni yet tho) and she has too read loads of books too, so its undderstandable that you have little time 4 writing! Haven't read chapter 8 yet, must do that...keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you! That is the most understanding, non-pressurising review I've ever had. I will post the next chapter as soon as I can and I'm glad you're liking it.
Wow!!!!! This is such a good fic, i - just - wow.....poor hermione!! I love this so far, plz keep it up its so good...^_^
WHAT?? NOT PANSY PUG-FACE PARKINSON!!!! sorry ^^. Nooo this cannot happen, must read on....100000/10!
That was good - I think its interesting to finally read about Lucius and Narcissa's relationship cos no-one ever really writes about it. Narcissa's one of those interesting characters who I like reading about. nice work
LOL =D update soon!! ~*~*~
Author's Response: Chapter 5 is now up. :-)
That was so cute! I think i'll add it to my favorites! ;)
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it!
PS it was so sweet how harry acted like a big brother or close uncle or sumthing. The little girl seemed so cute!
Author's Response: I thought so too!
Lol!!!!!!!! This is sooo funny, oh i laughed when i read the bit about fred charming pillows to rip (or was it george?) over the other person's head. :D lol again. Full of giggles!! Please update, I love humorous fics like these with fred and george hehe! :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Chapter 2 is with my beta, so it will be up soon!
Hahahahaha....that was funny! Y'know, JK Rowling never put any of that type of romance/comedy in the books...damn! It was a light, funny short read, glad i read it....i liked how filch started ripping up books and Pince started calling mrs. norris a "Filthy anilib" or wateva...
Author's Response: I truly enjoyed the writing of this one. The minute I read about Harry thinking that Filch and Pince might have something going on, something in my mind said, "Hey stupid, you should write about this" and because something in my mind insulted me like that, I decided to go for it! I'm really happy with the result and I'm glad that you liked it!
hahahaha....sorry just had to comment on it again ;)
Author's Response: No problem, comment all you like!
It was cute, i liked it ;). However, i was confused at the end that the loose ends weren't tied up..why was hermione so angry? :S anyway it was good
HAHA!! lol this was sooo funny, "hewwo wittle hawwy.." that was so cruel to that little girl! lol. =D update its brill!!

Oh wow!!!!!!! That was a perfect ending!!!! I loved Chapter five so much ive added it to my favorites!!!! This was such a sweet story, i'm not just saying that. I loved the bit where hermione was about to kiss ron for the first time and how you built up the tension for that moment, it was really good. And then i laughed wen hermione gave ron a hickey by mistake!! So great!!!
Author's Response: Thanks! :D
