Hi, I'm Jess! I absolutely love Harry Potter and the world that goes along with it, and if I could, I would DEFINITELY attend Hogwarts!! I spent the summers before I turned 11 praying that I would get a letter inviting me to attend. =) Ihaven't given up hope yet! Who knows, my owl could have gotten lost while crossing the Atlantic Ocean. =P
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw
Quidditch Position: Chaser

What I Would See in the Mirror of Erised: Myself surround by pounds and pounds of chocolate. ;)
That was amazing.
You didn't include any background information, unnescessary details, etc. and that was what made it so good. Besides the way you have with words, that is.
Excerpt from story: Merlin, he was going soft, Draco thought as he tried not to grimace. He'd start spouting off poetry in a minute if he wasn't careful. This whole love thing was sending him round the twist.
Honestly, this was an amazing story. To tell you the truth, I started reading it way back in around May or June, before the 6th book came out, and I thought it was the best fanfic ever written (although, to be quite honest, it pretty much was one of the first I had ever read). I had to stop reading it because, alas, there were no more chapters. So I bookmarked it and then almost completely forgot about until this week! (Don't be offended, I have over 150 different sites saved to my favorites.) Anyway, I started reading again on Friday, and read it straight through, and I finished it today. I actually made this account because I felt that I absolutely had to review. Your story was wonderful... beyond words in fact, and I absolutely fell in love with Draco, although I had never really liked him in the books. You are an amazing writer and I really, really, really, hope that you write a sequel. I loved Harry, Ron, and Hermione, and I loved this new side of McGonagall. I loved the sarcasm and cynicism (sp?) in the story and I thought it was simply awesome... as you can tell, I'm lacking for words to describe it! Thanks so much for providing me with the oppurtunity to read it. (:
Haha! What a funny story! I was smiling to myself the whole way along. Love it. =]
That was a particularly funny chapter, especially the part where Hermionie was just, "I hit stop." Hahaha, 10/10.
Author's Response: I loved that part. So funny.
Hahahaha! I absolutely loved the lists that Snape wrote. They were brilliant. You are brilliant! =]
Author's Response: All Hail The Lists!!!!!! Seriously, everyone loves the lists. Probably because they are so very funny.
Hahahaha! Incredibly funny. Especially Day 743... I laughed aloud!
Author's Response: Thanks! :-D
Simply hilarious! I loved the little schedule thing. =]
Author's Response: I liked the schedule too. Though I really think Nagini needed more time devoted to torturing Wormtail. lol
Why'd you end with a cliffhanger? Haha. I love how Nagini seems almost human. 10/10!
Author's Response: I like cliffhangers, lol. It\'s to build up to the next chapter. :-)
AHHH!!! I love it, I love it, and I love it some more!!! You totally made me wish I were Sirius's date for the dance. I nearly DIED when you made him say "There. Now she's perfect." *swoon*
Hahahaha, this is definitely a soap opera. So much drama, and only two chapters. Teehee. =]
Author's Response: lol I imagine the it\'ll get even more dramatic as it continues
Oh my gosh, you are brilliant! This is so hilarious. I cannot wait for your next chapter!!! I just love how you included everything that could possibly go wrong. Especially with McGonagall being impregnated by Crookshanks. I will never think of either of them in the same way again!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the enthusiasm!
I added this story to my favorites quite a while ago... and I just got an email saying it was updated. I hadn't been on MNFF in a while but I just reread this whole story, beginning to end, and it was wonderful... you're such a good writer! You really know how to make the reader imagine what's going on perfectly... it was so sad and so beautiful and I can't wait for the epilogue to come out! I need to know what happens! =)
Did you say the story was finished? NO! That can't be the end! What happens? Pleasepleaseplease, make an update!!!
Oh, nevermind, I realize now that you meant that you had finished writing, not finished updating. *phew* Anyways, AWESOME story, never read anything like it. I can't wait to read the next chapter. 10/10
Author's Response: Lol, this is definitely not the end. There\'s still about ten chapters to go, and in some ways, it\'s only the beginning. Thanks for the great review!
And no, contrary to beliefs very likely impressed upon you by this summary, I'm not a gormless prat.
Well... not entirely.
I love your writing, and I love both of your stories! April Rain I read first , a while ago, and was my favorite story on this site, but then this one came along, and I love it too =) I love how she cross-stiches and how her and Sirius are "avid nappers". I can't wait to finish reading but... sleeping always ruins everything.
AHHH, I absolutely loooove this fic. It's amazing. It's like one of those books where you want to get to the end sooooooo bad, but you also don't want it to end, because then it would be over! I love Tia, and I love her amazing narration. =) Can't wait to finish!
Awww, such a good story. I loved it... I wish it wasn't over! Won't you please consider a sequel? ;)
Oh my goodness, I just read your story, at one of my reviewer's recommendations, and I just wanted to tell you that ours are really similar. I don't want you to think I'm copying you or anything! I submitted the second chapter on Monday, and it involves Hogsmeade... and my third chapter, which I also submitted on Monday (but which got deleted because I already had one in the queue) involves a diary entry from Lily. This is really coincidental, and again, I don't want you to think that I'm copying you. By the way, thanks for reviewing me! Your story is very nice, by the way. I just have a question... how did Alice and Andy know what Lily wrote in her journal?
Author's Response: Wow... great minds think alike. Our stories can't be too similar- you're faster at writing than I am! Anyway, I'm really glad you reviewed, because I honestly thought your story was ripping mine off after I read it, and I was really concerned about that. I'm very glad we got that cleared up. I'm glad you enjoyed my story- my friend MalfoysMistress told me that she reviewed your story saying you should read mine, and I was afraid you wouldn't like it because our stories are so similar to each other. Andy and Alice know what Lily writes in her journal because they tend to read along with her as she writes, especially Andy, who is sort of obsessed with diaries. Please tell me your story doesn't involve Lily visiting the boy's dorm (not in that way!) because thats what I have planned for the third chapter, which is about halfway done. I should be writing it now! *smacks self* Anyway, I really appreciate the review, it means a lot to me that you cared enough to review. Thank you so much!
One word: AMAZING.
Seriously, it was amazing. The past you've created for Severus really makes you think about why he might be the way his is now.
I've added it to my favorites and given it a 10. Keep up the awesome work!
Author's Response: *feeling massive amount of pressure regarding subsequent chapters...* Thank you! Working out a likely past for Severus is -- well, not fun, exactly, there are too many awful bits, but an interesting puzzle all the same. Plus, of course, there's that strange feeling of merely taking dictation and then trying to put the notes in order. Thanks for the review!
Love the story so far. It's very creative and interesting. I hope Quinn and Tabby make up soon enough, and you absolutely must get some romance going between Decimus and Tabby... even though her and Darren are an item! And Gareth! It'll be a love square =) The only thing I think you should do would be to describe those three boys in more detail... I'm not sure what they all look like yet!! Keep writing... =)
Author's Response: Decimus looks like his father, but isn\'t as pointy. Darren has chestnut brown hair and hazel eyes, and Gareth has very dark hair and intense purple eyes. Hope that helps, and thanks for reviewing!
