I am a 17-year-old girl living in India. I absolutely love all the Harry Potter Books. I think writing fan fics is a great way to share your feelings about HP and communicate to the other fans while waiting for the next book release.
My story Close To My Heart was accidently deleted by the mods. I'm posting it here again, but sadly I've lost all those beautiful reviews I had earlier. Please read and review the story.
A million thanks go to my Beta ravenclawrose for agreeing to Beta the whole story. Thanks a lot!
give nupurbihari more *HUGS*
Get hugs of your own
Summary: Each moment is a decision, defined by the circumstances. Who knows? Had it not been for an overprotective cousin, perhaps Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy could have been the best of friends. Perhaps in one point in time and space, they are. As it happens, their relationship was defined by one catalytic factor, James Potter, and now,they are sworn enemies.
This story is a chronicle of their first year at Hogwarts, and their last. It is a tale of happenstance and familial influence, of an enmity that was not theirs to decide. Read and find out how such an enmity can influence the lives of two innocent children and wreck them. Will the injury last forever?
Due to my heavy work-schedule, this fic will be on hold till early June. My apologies to all.
It's up! YEAH!!!!
I'm excited...lol...This is really well written, as I've been telling you since the past...umm....month? You've done a great job of keeping the characters IC and exactly as we've all imagined them to be. Do keep up the good work, and UPDATE!
(haha, i know what happens next- being your classmate and friend has its advantages :P But yeah, UPDATE!!!)
Author's Response: LOL, yes you know. And thanks dearie! *huggles* =D
Already told you in MUCH detail what I feel about this chapter. I think it's well written and you're darn good with dialogues. Rose is quite a cry baby here, though you'll probably flesh her out in the coming chapters.
I liked the way you've characterized Scorpius and James. I understand this is just an introductory chapter and I know you've got a lot of angst and tears planned out (oops spoilers. hehe) *evil laugh*
Do keep up the good work and I want tosee the next chapter here!
The whole world has gone crazy, tipped on its side, changes happening so quickly that Harry canít keep track of them all. He isnít at the centre of it anymore Ė heís drifting peacefully somewhere on the very outer rim, and he likes it this way, and he never wants to go back.
He has a dream one night. Soft hands lift him out of his bed. He opens his eyes and their faces are like maps of a country heís never been to but has always wanted to go. They say theyíll take him to a place where all he has to is breathe.
He says okay.
After Voldemort's defeat, Harry struggles to come to terms with love, death, and the end of innocence. One-shot. Rated for very, very mild sexual implications.
Wow. Amazing story. I can't believe either you didn't tell me about it. I saw it in the recently added stories and I almost died when I saw your name there!
Awesome story. I enjoyed every bit of your writing. I liked Harry's characterization, and Ginny's too.
I felt in DH Ginny had been majorly sidelined. I neither expected nor liked that. I like how you've brought her back to 'normal' with your fic.
It was wonderful to see how you captures a year in Harry's life in one sinle fic. I loved the way you divided this chapter according to the seasons.
The writing style is impeccable (as usual).
And Fragmentary Blue is a lovely poem, isn't it?
Author's Response: Aw, thank you! Well, I didn\'t tell you because I sort of wrote it overnight and submitted it the next. It wasn\'t something I\'d been planning out.
I do love writing Harry, more and more as time goes on. I think he has a lot of underdeveloped potential and I might try my hand at writing a novel-length Harry fic one day. He would be fun. ;)
Yeh, I never really liked Ginny at any point in canon, nor did I like how H/G was portrayed. It seemed a very shallow, underdeveloped relationship to me, unlike R/Hr, which got better and better as canon went on.
I do love Fragmentary Blue. I love Frost in general. His poems are brilliant, so complex and multi-layered. They\'re always these little riddles with amazing conceits. He\'s a bit like Donne, I think, almost metaphysical but more accessible. I really have to think when I read him, but if I think hard enough I get him.
Thanks again, your review means a lot. When do I get to read a story of yours? ;)
Summary: Sometimes, the most trivial things we do can mean the world to others.
Who could ever have guessed that befriending a lost soul could change oneís life and so much more, forever?
In the end, everything comes down to one thing: love. Compassion is the greatest gift given to mankind. Once understood, one finds that just a single lifetime is simply not enough to love and be loved. For some people, itís too late, itís gone, goodbye. But for others; a moment of love, simply one moment, can be enough to last a thousand lifetimes.
Wow Maria! This is amazing! I adored your descriptions and every little detail you put in. The writing style is impeccable and your choice of words is perfect!
I also know that she cares; she cares enough to make your heart go all floaty. When she touches you it’s like warmth on snow, she smells like a garden in the morning after a rainy night. And she laughs quite a lot actually, and it’s free and unhinged as a breeze flitting by your ear.
‘Floaty’ isn’t really a word, but in light of such a beautiful paragraph (and such a beautiful story) WHO CARES?!? And Severus might use the word; I don’t think he cared much for dictionaries. :P
Awesome work! I loved the tense you used here. It really fits here. And the POV just took my breath away. Do keep up the great work! I look forward to more from you.
Author's Response: LOL! I love floaty! Actually, I was afraid of the tense I used here, it was kind of risky writing in present AND first person, so I\'m relieved that it came out right.*hugs* Thanks!! :D
