Bio:

Soap is my dog's name. Don't ask - he just looks like a Soap!


I'm a huge fan of almost anything involving Sirius and almost anything involving Remus, and when it involves both of them together, well . . . that's just ideal, isn't it? However, I do mean "almost anything", because I'm not very fond of Remus/Tonks. I know that it's popular and that it's, you know, allegedly in the "actual books" and all that nonsense, but I just really prefer seeing good old Remus with someone else.

In writing, I'm not at all an equal opportunity shipper. I started with Draco/Hermione, but in my old age (coming up on 28 now... positively ancient!) and after marrying a guy who is several years older than I, I've come to appreciate that men, like fine wines, get better with age. Thus, I've become very Sirius- and Remus-centered, as I've mentioned already, and most of what I write these days involves them together, or one of them with Hermione (she is quite the fanfiction slut, is she not?).

Reviews are always welcome, and suggestions are absolutely taken into consideration. Thanks for stopping by!




Allow me a moment of frivolous self-promotion: OMG I am in the top ten favorite authors! Wow!! I can't believe it!! Well, I hope I keep getting plenty of readers to click that "Add to Favorites" button, because it really is an honor to be on that list!


Has anyone figured out that the Hermione/Sirius series stories are all titled with Nirvana songs? Just wondering.

So - I started reading this not realizing it was in the humor fic section... what's so funny is that for most of the story I figured it was some weird author who came up with some out-there plot (you know how weird some of the fics get!!). But by the time I got to the brain tumor and the potential head explosions, I realized it was a farce. A very, very funny one as well! Good writing. =)

Author's Response: Thank you for the positive feedback:)

It could turn good, even though I'm with the others who have said that transfer students from America who went to school with Hermione and Draco and happen to be dating each other is kind of much. But it's your story and your setup! I'm interested to learn how Hermione went to school with Alex, and then Alex was in the U.S. and then came back... and the same with Draco and Jesse. And also wondering how Alex and Jesse got together. Maybe if you add some fun stuff into your story about all that it will satisfy us picky realism readers. :P Otherwise good, though! Keep updating.

Author's Response: Hey, thanks for your sugestions, I'll take them into account. I'll keep updating :D:D:D:D

I really like this story so far! I'm reminded of some of the old Russian classics; long paragraphs, good characterization, not too much dialogue. I love it!

If you still need a beta, I'd be happy to help.

Author's Response: Awww, danke ^___^ To think of one being compared to a classic, even in an off-handed way o_O *Is teh touched* And yes, I do still need a beta. I really need a beta now; people, I\'m writing chapter 23 as I write this. Other than working, this is all I\'m doing. So I really need an extra brain about now to remind me of everything I\'m forgetting XP

"I will always..." by HPfanMGD14
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 24]

Summary: Celeste Lopes is the perfect girl for any type of guy. She's a Metamorphmagus actually and many girls want to be just like her, but they do not know what she is. Sirius Black has had his eye on her all year even if he has various relationships at hand. How do they both realize the meaning in this phrase (the title of the fic)?

Reviewer: Soap Signed
Date: 11/27/07 Title: Chapter 2: Conversations and Admirals

Well, I definitely think you've got a good start here. A couple of critiques: I agree with the other reviewer who said it seems like a tidal wave of new characters and personalities at the beginning. Try to stick with one pov (like you did with Celeste in Ch 2) and develop one or two characters at a time. Also, watch the Mary Sue-ism. Celeste is already well on her way, and Rose could get there quickly (a Metamorphmagus friends with a werewolf/sorceress/warlock demon caller/whatever?) Her secret might push her into Mary Sue territory.

The dialogue is great, though. Try to get a little more into their heads, feeling out for the emotions behind what they're saying. Try to work on the nuances of their personalities, rather than the huge secrets. Characters don't need huge secrets to be interesting!

Overall, it was a great start, and I think you're doing well!

Author's Response: Well, it\'s been two years since I\'ve been trying to fix up Celeste (the first year being the year that I posted her up in the forums -- she was worse... :|). Thank you for posting up your concerns though. (Sorry if I sound rough, but I have heard it loads of times.) Sorry about Rose and Celeste, but I\'m trying. Thank you for reviewing, Soap. Your advise was helpful as well as your compliments. :] Your writer, ~Meli♥ P/s: This is, might I add, my first fic ever written since I was thirteen - at the time I\'m sixteen (gong on seventeen next July) and I\'m trying to start all over again.

A Tale of Two Matchmakers by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 1387]

Summary: Romance for three couples when Blaise and Luna use Shakespearean styled matchmaking to hook up Ginny and Draco. There's Much Ado about...something!

Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance-Non Canon 2007, 2008, and 2009. In 2010 mods changed the rules (they got tired of the same fics being nominated ^_~) so no more QQ hopes, but that's okay. No proof is needed that Draco/Ginny = love.  

* Written before the HBP, this tale presents an alternate sixth year in which Dumbledore lives, Draco is more than a foil to Harry, and Blaise Zabini is a girl. I hope readers who ship Draco/Ginny will enjoy the story which includes dancing with faeries, Celtic and Norse mythology, school holidays in London and Spain, and loads of fantasy and romance. "Is this a kissing book?" (to quote the Princess Bride) Yes, it is. *

(Warnings were added for safety, due to brief allusions in later chapters, not graphic content.)

I think it's perfect! I love it when authors take a piece of classic literature and "Harry Potter-ize" it. I always feel that if there's someone out there who doesn't like to read much except fan fiction, then at least they'll get to know about all these fabulous stories that are out there! I'm working on a "Harry Potter-ized" Sense & Sensibility right now. ;) Keep writing!

Author's Response: Thanks for the lovely "Valentine"! Ch. 4 is in the queue, so hopefully the mod will give me a present of a validation, lol. You are so right about classic lit being a great starting point for a fanfiction. It's got that "oh this has that kind of plot- I liked that" draw. I use the Much Ado matchmaking ploy, but don't recreate the play, just use the quotes to forward my plot, and cite other Shakespeare plays as well. There's at least one quote per chapter, because I'm batty about the bard. :D Which characters are you using for S&S? Is Ginny Maryann and Hermione Eleanor? Are you using basic themes instead actually making HP Regency era? It would be such a herculean effort otherwise. I'm impressed either way! ^_^
