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).

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?

Eek! It really is up! Oh man, I really had better get to work on chapter 6! See ya!
Author's Response: The fans are waiting.
Fantastic chapter. Though, I would like to point out that the term is witch, not wizardiss. Still very good.
So her dating Sirius is just a plot to make James jealous. Oh, that's just heartless. I'd love to see it back fire and blow up in her face and have her really fall in love with Sirius. I'd hate to see my favorite Marauder's heart broken.
Okay, I retract my last review. Sirius had his own plot too. I'm happy that Sirius isn't hurt (mentally) but I'm pretty sure that even though the players can, the balls can't fly into the stands. Still, I liked it. I'm starting to fee really bad about the last review.
That was absolutely brilliant! I don't think anyone would've guessed that it was Voldy who sent in the letter from the "Former Slytherin Stud." *asserts sarcasm* lol.
Author's Response: Thank you! Actually, it wasn\'t Voldemort who was Former Slytherin Stud - good guess though! Voldemort\'s letter is a bit further on...
That was very nice. Loved Hermione's list of "people most important to her". Everyone but Ron just to make him jealous.... :D
*laughs* Dumby wrote to his own column! *laughs even harder*
Oh man, that was a great ending! (Though I am sad that it's over...) The last bit kind of made me want to hug Voldy... *shudders* *throws Voldy a teddy bear instead*
Heehee. Absolutely fantastic chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Excellent. Really excellent. :D Loved how you worked in a Harry Potter Fan Club. Can't wait to see what comes next!
Author's Response: Thank you - I\'m really pleased you thought so! *Giggles* Yes - Colin\'s club is still going strong! Please - read on!
Ooooh. More please! I can't wait to read what goes on in the castle next! Think you could tell me?
Author's Response: Ask and thou shalt recieve! ...Or something like that anyway. An update is coming soon - sorry I\'ve taken a while, I\'ve been really busy lately. Well, in the next chapter something from Chapter 3 comes into play and someone else has been taking hints from the master of mythology...sort of. Intregued?
That was hilarious! Loved the ending though.
Awww...that is such a good ending to the chapter. For a second I thought you were going to pull the false labor thing again. Definitely worth the wait.
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, sometimes i do take a while, cuz i write each chapter quite slowly...I don\'t thinkI could do false labor again...that would be too much of another cliffhanger! And I can\'t face being mean to you all again!! :D thanks for reviewing!
This is supposed be under ch. 4 but my computer's dumb. Anyway, I love your story, I can't wait for chapter 5! The second flashback was so cute. I can't wait to see how Lisle is going to react when she finds out she's going to be an older sister! You get 1000/10, this story is siriusly fantabulous. ;)
Author's Response: lol, i h8 it when my comp goes mad. Thank you very much!!! (lol i like that word 'siriusly' its such a shame he died in book 5...:(
Before I praise you, I have some constructive criticism. Firstly, the Harry Potter series took place in 1990's, meaning you should've wrote that New Year's Eve signified the end of 1995. Also there were some minor spelling errors here and there, but I'm just being nitpicky......(is that even a word?). Now for the praise. One word can describe this fic: fluff. This was well orchestrated all in all. To remedy your spelling errors, I recommend you find a Beta. If you don't know where to find one I'll be your Beta. 10000/10. ;D
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.

Ooooooh! Lovely story! Sirius and James finally found out about Remus' "furry little problem"! When are they going to tell him they know? I love the clashes between Sirius and his mom, they are so funny! I can't wait for the next chapter! Please get it up soon!!!! 1000000/10! You siriusly rock!
Author's Response: Well, hello there! Yes, FINALLY, Sirius and James found out. About time, too, what with the hints (I could say "ANVIL-sized hints", as well) I dropped about them noticing the weird little things... Only one chapter left and first year's over. But before that, I have to finish it (and it's a tad complicated, many things to put in it), send it to my Beta (gone on holiday), not forget to submit it (work, you know...), and then let's hope it doesn't get rejected!! I'm even more impatient than you are, believe me! Thanks for the lovely review!
I forgot to say that James naming his new condor McGonagall had me roaring with laughter! That was so cool how you engineered James getting the Invisibility Cloak from his godfather! Once again you ROCK!!!!!!!!!!! I wish you could update soon. I don't think I could wait until May 31st for your next chapter! That's like... *counts fingers, thinking hard* ...3 months and 13 days away!!!!!! How could you do this to me???? You force me to wait 3 months and 13 days for the next chapter, having left this chapter end with a cliffie??????? That was really mean...........*sighs heavily* Though, I have to admit, it's not that bad.
Author's Response: !!! I just answered your first review... and now I find your second one! Is it Christmas again? About the condor... I had fun with that. You know, at first I just wanted to write a story with all the facts JKR gave us about the Marauders... and suddenly I find myself raving about a condor?!?! I really wondered for a second what the hell I was doing... but it was not that bad, so I kept it. And I didn't want James to receive his Cloak from his father... Such an unusual gift, it should be given in unusual circumstances, shouldn't it? As for the update, I have to finish first year, so I guess I'll finish ch. 8 soon. After that, nothing till June... Will be very hard for me. But as soon as my exams are over... YAAAAAAAH!
Hee hee, try to throw Regulus out of the first chimney he sees. That's awesome. It's so nice to have an update, finally. Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: I\'ve finally started to write it, and I should have it ready by the end of the week-end... Then I\'ll send it to my Beta... Therefore, given our computer-related problems, count 7-10 days before reading it (err... I hope so anyway!)
Oh man, I've been laughing non-stop since I started! This is so hilarious! Post the next chapter really soon! I love this fic! 1000000/10!

*Ch 20 Quote*
It was the happiest Christmas of my life.
That was so mean to poor Sirius. To quote Tonks *shite* the bell ending study just rang. Great chapter anyway.
Author's Response: Our first reaction to shocking news is often harsh, so you'll have to read the one shot Sirius in the Moonlight to have a happy ending! Thanks for reading instead of studying! ^_^
