I am a major book worm. I have delved into the pages of so many books. So far my running favorites (behind Harry Potter series [which is #1 forever!]) are 'The DaVinci Code', 'Angels and Demons', the 'Artemis Fowl' series, 'Faerie Wars', 'Goddess of Yesterday', 'The Joy Luck Club' (and other books by Amy Tan), the 'Princess Diaries' series, and many others. As could be assumed by this list, I mainly read fantasy, but I like a little romance thrown in the mix once in a while. ;)
I'm going to start putting all the banners I have from the forums here (because the signatures have a stupid character limit).
In order, credit is due to immortal_evil
This quiz was so freaking awesome, I just had to put this one in because it is so siriusly freaking cool! Not exactly the average 'which marauder era person are you' quiz.
You're Sirius Black. You are awesome. You are so
awesome that you took on a werewolf by
yourself once a month for over 6 years. You
are so fucking awesome that you went to
prison for your best mate. You are amazingly
hot and sexy and wonderful. Everyone wants to
be you. In fact, in 1975 a small child died in
his attempts to become you using polyjuice
potion. But we don't speak of this. In
Brazil, the indigenous tribes worship you as
a God due to you silky shiny hair.
Which Marauders Era Character are you?
brought to you by Quizilla
Within the Marauder band of Merry Men, Sirius is the dashing Will Scarlet. Seventh year, his goal is not to rob the rich, but to help poor Robin woo Maid Lily, avoid sermons from Friar Moony, aid a rat in need, and win the love of a fair lady.
Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance- Non Canon.
*Chapter 30 is 'To Be Loved'*
Another lovely chapter! I loved how Sirius called it sexual harassment, wonder how Mr. and Mrs. Evans took it.... ;) Poor Sirius, even though I love him to bits, I can't deny that he was asking for it (with all his faked interest in Petunia). Still it was really funny.
Author's Response: Yes, he\'s Sirius B that rhymes with T and that stands for Trouble! :D Of course Petunia couldn\'t admit she was attracted to him. Oh no, it had to be an evil wizard spell on her. That old Black magic, lol.
Why are they in trouble? I'll find out next chapter. I'll give you a review whether or not I find out. Hehehe.
Author's Response: James is in trouble with Lily, but it will build character and pay off in the end, LOL
The Deathday banquet? That's harsh.
If you recall from PoA, Flitwick had that drink, McGonagall ordered the gillywater. Still, I loved it! More please!
Author's Response: Don\'t tell Fiona that- she\'d be crushed! LOL The books don\'t say the drinks are their favourites, so I\'ll just say Flitwick got hooked by McGonagall, heh, and she didn\'t want to drink her favourite drink when there was serious business needing a mind unimpeded by a sugar rush to commence..either that or she was \"on the wagon.\" in PoA. :D Thanks!
When are you going to update?
PS: Nominations for the Quicksilver Quills are done, but I thought you might like to put this banner by StaceyLC on your author page (unless you have a name on the forums, then you can put it in your sig). I hope this works.... http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i296/DirectorWannbe/QSQ/QSQRomanceNC.jpg
Author's Response: I want to update, but the queue\'s jammed! R/H and R/T cats don\'t validate as quickly as this wonderful cat (with its fabulous mod) does. I\'m going to send you a private thank you, but there\'s a public one on my author page if you want to take a look! ^_^
Poor James, oh well, this story is about Sirius, not James. So I shall ramble on about my favorite Marauder. It was nice of him to help Rosmerta, but he got an eyefull of her. Sad how some in the village think of her as a scarlet woman (as Ron informed us that that's what his mum calls them in GoF). Great chapter. On to chapter 4.
Author's Response: James can\'t win over Lily too easily. He wouldn\'t appreciate her as much. :D The whole scarlet woman thing is sad, but if you\'re a plain village woman, and a pretty young thing with a scandalous past moves back, you might eye her warily until you know she\'s not a maneater. ^_~
I would want to run too if I had her for a parent. ;) He got to play with Rosie at least. But that's really sad the way both her and her dad's love lives were so screwed up.
Author's Response: Families do seem to follow patterns. Kind of scary, really. :D
I'm so gald that Rosie has some more people to get to know. I'm just glad Hagrid came in at the right time to spook those drunkards into leaving. (Speaking of the drunks, did you get the idea of calling her Rosie from me, or was that your idea entirely?) I can't wait for chapter 9!!
Author's Response: \'Rosie\' was an example of great minds thinking alike, and I could see drunks calling her that, thinking they\'re paying her some compliment. Hagrid is a prince of a guy, even if he didn\'t turn out to be the HBP like I\'d wanted. :D
Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha! OMG, that was so funny! I loved the prank on Boot and with the pigs. I can't wait to see more. I wish chapter 5 would come up soon! If I may throw in a suggestion, I'm all for hexing Snape so that everytime he tries to talk to a friend or favorite professor he insults them, and when he tries to insult someone he doesn't like (namely my favorite Marauder or one of the other 3) he compliments them or something like that, and he can't do anything about it for an hour or longer or if someone performs the counterjinx on him. That is, unless, you have this all planned out.
Author's Response: Hex Snape? I\'ll have to think on it. I have a soft spot for him, if you didn\'t know, or see the MWPP Snape fic I post here too, LOL. He and Sirius will \'cross swords\' again, because they\'re oil and water, snicker, snicker.
I know this chapter isn't out yet, but I couldn't resist reviewing. The title of the chapter forbodes something is going to go wrong. Is Rosie going to keep Padfoot, and then pine for Sirius when he doesn't turn up again? Then he'd have to sneak away during the day to go to classes and be with his friends. Imagine the look on Rosie's face if she saw her dog playing around with the Marauders and trying to bite Snape... tee hee... sorry, lost in my thoughts. Back when this chapter is validated. ;D
Author's Response: I think it would strain credulity too far to have Padfoot become Rosmerta\'s dog, although like you, I think it would be amusing. \'Grimmy\' does keep popping up in the story, though!
Moving commentary... that is gobshite.... That must've hurt when Rosie didn't let him tell the joke about the hag, the healer, and the Mimbulous Mimbletonia. Well, it shows at the end. I know it killed her to ignore him, but he's out getting drunk. Please tell me a pretty village barmaid *coughRosiecough* is going to find a handsome young man *coughSiriuscough* passed out in front of the Three Broomsticks and she'll take him in for the night and take care of him.
Author's Response: He won\'t get that plastered, just get-an-idea-and-go-do-it charmingly, LOL. I do think he was hurt, not only in pride, but in a I-thought-you-really-liked-me! way. Rosmerta will make it up to him. :D
Another great chapter!
Author's Response: Hola amiga! Como esta? :)
There are little craft kits that give you supplies to make little flower faeries. The ones I've done are right near the computer. *apologizes for the semi-spam* Lovely chapter! I'm so glad I don't have to wait for the next one because the ending for this one would probably have me screaming at the computer. ;)
Author's Response: You\'re commenting on an aspect of the chapter, the faery craft! (bet they didn\'t have a boy in a black flower kilt, though!)
Aw... that is so cute!! Lucky Rosie to have guy who respects her boundaries. It was funny when Fiona and Hamish were talking about setting her up with one of his cousins. I took a peek at the other reviews, and they made me wonder, who's going to be the first person to find out Rosie and Sirius' secret love life?
Author's Response: Next chap you\'ll find out! I bet you already have a feeling about it and will say, yes, I thought so!
OMG! The whole village probably heard that! I feel so sad for my sweet puppy. *huggles Sirius for the millionth time*
Author's Response: Sirius does need hugs. Life was never easy for him, no matter what Snape thought!
*huggles Sirius* My poor puppy. *sniff* At least Rosie's having a nice Christmas. It was funny when James busted Sirius for sleeping on the bra. I'm just wondering now if on their next Hogsmeade visit, James is going to be able to put two and two together and find that it's Rosie.
Author's Response: James is certainly clever enough to see what\'s right in front of him, lol. You\'ll see, and I hope you have a Happy Christmas!
I want this chapter to be validated!!! *looks around and grins widely* Hey, I'm first! *throws turnip shaped confetti found in the Ravenclaw common room* Ooh, I can't wait! I love the Artemis Fowl series. Poor Root... stupid council.... I can write Gnommish. *looks around and edges out shiftily*
Author's Response: Yay for turnip shaped confetti! I can write Gnommish if I have the key in front of me, LOL. If I don\'t, I Love You (or the words made from those words, heh) is my limit. :D
If only Sirius had seen The Wizard of Oz.... :D I'm so happy that everything worked out for Rosie and Sirius! They're just so cute together!
Author's Response: I\'m sure they told him why they were laughing sometime later. Friends are like that...they laugh at you, and then later they tell you why they laughed so you can laugh with them! :)
Fantastically brilliant and so much more. I don't think I can think of any words to say how awesome this chapter was.
Author's Response: I saw it was you and went Yay! :D Thank you so much for liking the chap!
Oh, I loved it soooo much! Jane still loves Peter even without the spell and Sirius has Rosie! Halfway through I paused because I didn't want it to end! (I still don't!) After the one-shot, would you consider an epilogue?
Author's Response: Thank you for loving the story and reading when you got the chance! ^_^ The second one shot, Far Away, for Far too Long is the epilogue, since it\'s the post-Azkaban reunion story. I hope you\'ll read it and agree it ends at a very good place in their lives!
Yum. :) My Sirius appetite is being fed *hears groans at pun* and my fluff desires have been filled, for now. I am loving this story to pieces (maybe it's a start to a lily_writes/semi charmed life pairing :D lol). Adios and see you on the next chapter... probably tomorrow....
Author's Response: Are you serious? I love puns! Siriusly! :D I heart Piers Anthony and his Xanth series for being so wonderfully punny and amusing, and I heart you for reading! Hasta manana, amiga!
