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
Summary: Professor Sprout has just given 7th year Gryffindors a new project, where the class, divided in pairs, has to raise a rare plant. Whatís gonna happen when Lily finds out who her partner is? And how will she survive in his sole company?
Please get chapter 6 out pronto! For laughs and to piss off James, could you give Peter a girlfriend (there hasn't been much mention of him, I don't think he's evil until after the Marauders leave Hogwarts). That would be super hilarious! Can't wait for chapter 6. 100000/10!
Author's Response: Actually, that is a great idea!!! It will have to wait for chapter seven, though, because I've already submitted six! Yes... it's done!!
Summary: Harry, Ron, and Hermione make a trip to Godric's Hollow to visit the Potters' graves. There, Harry speaks to his parents for the first time, and in so doing, discovers that the dead are never truly lost. (One-shot. Bring your kleenex.)
*wails in sadness* To quote Hagrid: "Tha' was...tha' was beau'iful!" It really was! I started sniffling about a paragraph or two in and then the tears flowed freely till the end. There's nothing like a good cry. You should definitely write up another tear-jerker. I have three tissues that agree.
Summary: Somewhere in the multivers lies a time line on which Dumbledore chose a different strategy. Harry is sent to school in the U.S. and an American muggle-born to Hogwarts. Our story begins about the time of Harry's eleventh birthday
Very well written chapter. I did notice a couple of small errors, but all in all it was very good spelling and grammar wise.
So THAT was what Dumbledore did. That was amazing; hardly any mistakes, very well put together, and fantastic.
That has to be a false memory that Quirrell put in earlier and activated just then.Or maybe Quirrell killed Snape as West accidentally cast that lightning spell (Killing Curse = Avada Kedavra). He has to get off the charges! Really awesome chapter. Oh, and happy birthday. :D
Oooh, this is getting really good! Please put have the 4th chapter as soon as possible. I can't wait!
Author's Response: There, it's off to the mods. Well, I didn't expect this kind of response. Thank you all, thank you.
YAY! It's up! It's UP! It's...wait a second, it's up!!! AAAAAAAHHHHHHH! I'm not done with chapter 8 yet!!! Oh no...
When's chapter 5 coming out? Your story rocks my socks off. *socks hop off feet and do dance of their own accord* What's going to happen to Harry though?
Author's Response: It'll be a day or two before it's ready to post. My, but you're fan and a half, lily.
Alright, I gave you chapter 6 back. Why haven't you submitted it. Or did I forget... aw shite... please tell me I gave it back to you....
HA! I'm the first to review! And it's not even validated yet! Don't worry Mickey, I'll have chapter 7 done soon enough. Just drop a line when this one's validated so I can go into panic mode. lol ;)
First to review after it was posted too! Wow, I'm lucky. One quick comment on something I overlooked. When Dumbledore is talking about how West took Harry's place at Hogwarts, but not in the prophecy, the 'the' in "The States", should've been lower case (that's a mouthful).
Author's Response: No, it\'s really \"The States.\" Over there, \"The\" is part of the proper name. But thanks for looking out for me.
Lovely chapter, slipstick. Can't wait to see what's next.
This story is doing fantastic! I feel so happy that it's moving along as nicely as it is.
Please get ch. 3 out soon. I really like it.
Author's Response: Thank you kindly, Miss Lilly. It's in the hands of the gods. Well, the moderators, but that's pretty much the same thing.
Yay! West is cleared, Quirrel (though dead) is no longer controlled by Voldemort, and Snape is alive. I'd love to see what Snape does to his sub.... *evil grin*
Am I the only one reviewing lately? Or am I imagining things?
Hehehehehe...I did it again. I really must try to break this horrible habit of reviewing before the chapter's even up. But, hey I already know how it goes. Let me just say that it is a really good chapter (but aren't they all?). Chapter 8 is waiting.
Very good chapter. I loved it. Hope you have chapter 9 up soon.
What happened? Where's chapter 4? Oh man, I'm going to go crazy! I'm already nervous enough with the opening night of my school's musical next week and I just submitted 'Pain Can Lead to Laughter' not even a minute ago.
Author's Response: Sorry sweet heart. The mods are being fine tooth about the whole thing. I've just submitted yet another re-write. If you don't mind your fic a little raw, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Author's Response: Last rejection was because I didn't capitilze quidditch (which is not in the canon). Now it's rejection not capitilzing quaffle, bludger and snitch. These at least I could do, but they also rejected it for not putting a E at the end of Dumbledore, which I did. Sorry folks, no more decoy.
The weird thing about looking over the chapters beforehand is that when I read through to review, it is, really, a big case of deja vu. Still, I know what's coming next...hehehe.... Can't wait for chapter 5 to be posted!
Author's Response: Even giving you the raw data, you\'re the best Lily_pie. Never leave me.
