Bio:
Well, since I'm the one writing it, it should be autobio. You know, at one point I thought that autobiography had something to do with cars.




Some very random facts about me

Frogs or elephants? Frogs because they're green? So they aren't all green, but if you imagine a frog, don't you imagine a green frog? But if those elephants are dancing, then I prefer them. Or if they're pink. You know, I just thought about something, if you put together a (grey) elephant and a (green) frog, you get Slytherin colours! :)

What makes you happy? A lot of things. Good books, chocolate, friends... and sunshine. I'm one of these people who kind of depends on weather - it's much easier for me to be happy when it's sunny outside.

What are you obsessed with/addicted to? Again, a lot of things. Green tea, for example. Then coffee, especially in the mornings. Chocolate, of course. Fanfiction (you never would have guessed that, would you?). Harry Potter. Terry Pratchett books. Agatha Christie books. Musical "Chess". Currently also with a game called "Dynomite" - it's about smashing dinosaur eggs... then with my Nightwish album "Once". And many, many other things I can't recall right now. :P

Summary: Ever wonder what the world of Harry Potter would be like as a soap opera? Me neither – until now, that is. Set in Harry’s 6th year, think of this as the parts of the Half Blood Prince that JKR didn’t want us to see. If you're into unconventional ships, this one's for you! Behold… As the Wizarding World Turns

Episode 9 is up!

*****Excerpt from a later chapter*****

"Haven’t you heard the rumors about her – one date Weasley.”

“One date what!?” Harry stared at Hermione dumfounded. He turned his head towards Ginny who once again started snogging Dean. Dean’s hands wandered to his girlfriend’s bum as she pulled the lower half of his body closer. “Hmm… makes sense,” he admitted.

“Anytime she brings up that sort of thing, I try to act like I have loads of experience too, but actually I have no idea what I’m talking about.”

“But what about you and Krum?” Harry asked, still visibly uncomfortable about their conversation.

“Oooh big deal. So we kissed a couple times. That means I must be a demon in the sack,” Hermione answered sarcastically. “Look, I was thinking…” Hermione started to blush. “I need to find someone I know to you know… practice with.”

Oh my, this gets better and better. 'I didn’t mean it like that! Well… actually I did, but….' ~ Oh 'Mione, what in the name of jumping pink sheep are we going to do with you? On the other hand, it's time you had some fun. Only Ron might get a little jealous once he finishes whatever he was doing during this chapter and finds out. 'Bellatrix appeared taken aback and suspicious of the sudden considerate note in Snape’s voice.' ~ Good thinking, Bella, consideration from Snape is never a good omen. Hmm, it's rather nice to see Volly so unwickedly joyful - the poor guy did have an unhappy childhood, after all.

Poor Snape. He really didn't see that one coming. :P Great idea & story!

 

Summary: It's nearly six months after the war, and when Molly Weasley reads the days' newspaper, in it is an article that forces her to reminisce over the events of the war, the effects of it on her life and the lives of those close to her. Meanwhile, Ron has news of his own…

It's rather ironic, isn't it? I mean, the war is over, and they survived it, and they saw so much death and destruction but they still survived it, and now when they're starting to build themselves a new life, to help each other overcome the grief and losses - BAM! and everything is ruined once more.

Poor Ron! And poor Molly - seeing her son so happy and knowing that it's not going to last. Still, I liked how she didn't show the newspaper to him, letting him be happy for just a little while longer.

Beautiful story. Sad, but beautiful. :)

Author's Response: Yes, it is ironic. As it happens, I\'m a huge fan of irony - so watch out for it in the rest of my stories! But yes, it is terribly ironic - that it should happen at exactly the wrong time, just when Ron was going to propose.

Yes - I felt so sorry for Molly. I\'m glad that you liked how she reacted, with not showing him the paper or telling him the news, as I truly thought that\'s what any mother, especially Molly, would do - want to see their son\'s happiness for just a little longer.

I\'m really glad you enjoyed it, thank you for a lovely review!

This story is much better on the second read. ;) At first, although I admired the beautiful way it was written and the originality of the idea, I wasn't overwhelmingly fond of it because to me it seemed more a Hermione/Ron than a Hermione/Draco romance. But now, reading it again, it feels so right, so sweet, almost perfect. The way you depict Hermione leaving Hogwarts and thinking herself too old and weary - I can really feel it as well, the mood, the atmosphere, the sensation. And then the description of the White Tomb and the way they hear the phoenix song and feel hopeful and alive once again... and the last paragraph was simply marvelous. And, I got this odd feeling of Dumbledore witnessing the scene from another world and smiling contently to himself...

Author's Response: Thank you! I feared that myself that it might turn out too Hermione/Ron. And it's a nivce idea about Dumbledore, happy to see other people happy, promoting love even years after his death...

What a pleasant story yours is to read! And it feels so right, so real, so good. And don't worry about slow chapter - personally I like them even more then those full of action. Because, I mean, life isn't all adventure, it has its quiet moments as well - and if described well (like yours), those are the best part of the story. To me at least, for I like to read about human nature and people’s thoughts and feeling. Now, this is something I could have mentioned about the last chapter as well – your characters are absolutely human. I mean, they have magical abilities and all that kind of power but they never seem overpowerful or superhuman. They didn’t somehow destroy all the Death Eaters, no – quite the opposite, and that adds so much to the story. The characters feel real, they feel true. And that’s not only about the fight, but Alice’s condition afterwards as well. And all her pain, all her weakness and suffering – you have described it so well, so believably. Next, I like they way they thought and felt about their miracle of surviving. Not happy, not lucky, just somehow… incredible, desperate, bittersweet. Overall, your depiction of the dark times of war is so good. All the misery, all the hopelessness, all the suffering, and still people have love, have courage to fight against the evil, to fight for the world and its freedom. And they are all still weak, and human, and yet… they still carry on the fighting. Loved James’s reaction to hearing about the Order of the Phoenix. Favourite quotes: “Suddenly she felt a light warm shiver start from the top of her head and flow like a stream of desert wind made liquid down to the tips of her toes.” – I just loved the ‘desert wind made liquid’ part. “Alice tried to recall what she had been told about it in her lectures of Curse Creation, but was forced to admit to herself that she should have tried to pay more attention to the lecturer and think less of Frank.” – Hehe, good one. “There was no difference whether she had said black or dark or shadowy or…” – I don’t know, the shadowy part just got me, call me crazy, but it just felt so funny. :P

Author's Response: Well, finally there is a person who can leave nice LONG reviews...

Again, I loved the chapter. I like the way Alice reacted to the rat – not with fear, but with kindness. And I thought that your description of Sirius was almost perfect – how he was funny and good-humored and how he had written down details about every girl he had ever dated, and yet how it was obvious he was worried about James and Lily and even went as far as to blame himself for the crimes of his relatives. Another thing I loved was the way you wrote about Hogwarts as the one safe place, no matter what happens outside. And their belief and loyalty to Dumbledore – that he can protect them, keep evil away. And then suddenly, Hogwarts is no longer safe and Dumbledore is powerless – the last safe haven will be taken over by forces of Darkness, everything will fall apart, the beginning of the end. Favourite quotes: “The fact that she had heard laughter so cold that could cover world’s hottest and driest deserts with glaciers kilometers thick calmed her now; she thought that if a person could laugh of good mood and happiness, there was nothing to fear from him. But still, noises never made themselves; there had to be someone behind that laughter.” ~ “Attacked by Death Eaters,” Alice answered casually with an intonation that should be used when saying ‘hit their heads to a shelf in the library’ or ‘tripped and fell’. ~ As if following Alice’s line of thought Sirius said, “As long as we have Dumbledore, nothing can happen.” ~ Dumbledore is powerless… they’ll all die. Poor Dumbledore – everything depends on him, power and wisdom is not an easy burden to bear.

Author's Response: Thanks again! You wrote a very thought-provoking review... about the burden on Dumbledore's shoulders, I mean... I suppose it was even harder for him in the first war compared to the second... And I really love to get those long reviews, thanks!

Wonderful chapter. I greatly enjoyed it. Very well written, very good descriptions, my favourite was: "The curses just bounced off it, making it shimmer as sea water a few hours before sunset and hum the way wind does when blowing through hollow tubes". Plus, I could so well imagine the moment of silence, of tension building, two opposite sides just standing there, wands raised, having a battle of wills and glares, seeing who would crack first. Love the curse Lily sent to Voldemort and the description of its effect on him. I have a pretty nice guess what that spell was. :) And, I love the way you described the fight itself and Alice's feelings during it. It reminds me of a quote by Mark Twain (I think): "Courage is not the absence of fear. It is acting in spite of it." I mean, you show that they were all afraid but still found the strength inside to put up a fight. And I liked the way James ran at the Death Eater who cursed Lily, his wand forgotten - it shows that they were not some cold-blooded, calculating warriors but still passionate youths who just wanted to fight for the right cause. Great story, loved it! :D

Author's Response: Wow. Wonderful review. The longest I've read, I think. Thank you for all the praise you gave me, though I'm not that sure this chapter deserves it... Anyway, I'm glad you like it!

Again, I really liked your description of atmosphere and mood. The way Alice told herself that the road was safe but how there was still an obvious tension and fear in the air... and the presence of Lily and James adding some innocence to the situation, to the dark days, something almost unreal and too good to be true, but on the other hand a sign of hope which tells that even in evil times, some things remain still good and true. A wonderful first chapter, can't wait for the next! ;)

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it, though I wansn't very happy with this chapter myself. I'll try to do better with the next ones.

 

Finality by Eilime
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 175]

Summary: One-shot

He tore, bit, sucked, breathed, scratched at her as her flailing arms and legs won no victory.

She stood in silence for a while, knowing but not caring that he still stood behind her. She heard him mutter something and warmth surrounded her. A figment of imagination. An unreal cover.

Euphemism.

Though she was warm, it didn’t reach her body, her mind, her soul. She was freezing.

A hand came to rest on her arm.

This time, she let him.

At that moment, Hell froze over.

Warning: Contains mention of rape. Nothing graphic.

I really enjoyed this story. It was pleasant and interesting to read, I simply love this kind of writing style and I adored those 'hell freezing over' elements. Especially the first - "This time, she let him. At that moment, Hell froze over." I mean, it's simply so good, so perfect. Had you finished your story at that point, I still would have loved it. And then the "How many layers are proverbially possible?" - it just suits it so well.

Anyway, I didn't do very well at imagining an evil Harry, so I let it be, and concentrated on Hermione and Draco instead. So this way, the Harry thing didn't really disturb me that much.

I also liked the minimum background information and the absence of long paragraphs in which Draco reflects about his beliefs and feelings for Hermione and all that. I don't think it would have fitted into this story.

All in all, loved it, loved it, loved it! :)

Author's Response: Thank you! \"Pleasant to read\" wasn\'t something I would have connected to this story :) but I\'m pleased to hear you thought it interesting too. I\'m glad you liked the \'Hell freezing over\' parts and the advancing to the \'proverbially possible\'. That you thought it could have ended at the first \'Hell freezing\' moment is flattering. I\'m happy to hear you weren\'t dumbfounded, offended, or otherwise harassed by the Harry part. Because it\'s not really the fact that it\'s Harry people need to concentrate on. It\'s a Hermione/Draco story, and it\'s more the fact that something so familiar has turned into something Hermione never would have foreseen or even thought possible that is the blow. I\'m happy to hear you liked the minimalism of my writing style. Thank you so much for the great review!

Go Dumbledore! I always knew he was a wonderful dancer.

Love the false endings Hermione and Draco gave to their story. :P

Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, games can spice things up, though quite often it\'s not done very well. I hope mine succeeded. Besides, I haven\'t seen \'I Never\' used in a fanfic before, and I\'m happy about that. No, Dumbledore never ceases to amaze us! I\'m glad you liked their way of partially covering up the truth of \'that night\' and their feelings. Thanks again for a great review!

Well, what can I say? Besides that it was wonderful, amazing, impressive, awesome and all those other adjectives with similar meaning. Well, I can say three things - atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere. I mean, every time I even think about your story the first image that comes to my mind is a warm and lazy afternoon, quiet and a little deserted with an open veranda door and crumpled pieces of paper lying on the floor. And it's not only the image, but also the feeling as if I actually were standing there in the rose garden and looking towards the house. Speaking of the plot, I like the idea of James never giving up. I think it is one main trait of his personality, and I think it's a very honourable trait. Even though 'sometimes he might even realize that the letter would never be sent' he still keeps on trying to write it. Oh, and I liked how you mentioned his mother - his mother's rose garden, his mother won't be angry that he stained the tablecloth, his mother checking on him as if she doubted his sanity - I'm not even sure why I liked it, perhaps because it ties James to the rest of his family, but at the same time emphasizes his loneliness. There were many passages I'm extremely fond of but they're too long to be all mentioned so I'll just tell you my very favourite - 'Sometimes he would even fly out on his broom, fly at the stars until his mind caught up with him and reminded him that they were out of his reach, just like her.' And oh, one more, since I just can't leave it out - 'Sometimes James would just close out the world and dream of her emerald green eyes, the ones that he sees in the stars, the ones that he sees in the fire.' Oh, poor James. The rest of the Marauders should pay him a visit at the first possibility - it's not healthy to 'think of the pointlessness of it all, ponder the meaning of life, think of the endlessness of the universe' for too long. ;)

 

On Edge by Eilime
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 37]

Summary:

His knuckles were becoming white. Draco tried not to look down the cliff as he held on for dear life. He was hanging by the edge of his fingers now, his muscles vibrating with the effort of holding on. Searching for somewhere to fasten his footing and maybe crawl back up, his foot slipped as small stones glided down the vertical cliff, and he was left dangling, holding on by his wish to live. He could hear the sea crushing unceremoniously against the rocks bellow. They crashed imperviously with the stone, inviting him to their midst.

“I can’t reach you; you’re too far away...” she spoke softly.

Wow. I mean, wow. I think it's my favourite story of this series. I can't even say why. I just love it so much. I mean the scene where Draco was just about the climb up the rock, but then said the Mudblood comment and suddenly realized what it meant. Loved it. :)

Also, I liked the good old grumpiness of Draco, the way he snapped and yelled at Hermione when she didn't pull him up.

The idea is great as well, original, and your writing is very good, too. :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m so flattered that you liked the idea of it all, and that you felt that Draco was in character. Thank you very much for another great review!
