Favorite pairing: DRACO anything really. I'm partial to Draco/Hermione (if it's written well). Plus, anything involving Sirius.
Favorite pairing to write: Draco/OC. It's the only main one I like writing. I like having my own character thrown into the mix but Draco is by far my favorite person to use on the other end of the relationship.
Sorry I don't update much. I'm a bit of an unusual writer. I write then re-write then leave and come back and re-read then re-do the entire story. My baby is Love will do that to You. The next chapter has been written no less than FIVE times. I finally have one I'm happy with but I'm afraid to let it finally go...
Summary: The first war with Lord Voldemort is constantly getting worse; people are dying left and right, dementors are attacking people on the Death Eaters' orders, and nobody knows who is trustworthy anymore. Lily Evans, in her seventh year at Howarts, does not want to be a part of the war -- but some things are unavoidable.
Well I pretty much attacked my computer when I checked my email and found out that this story was updated. This is really becoming one of...no, my favorite story I have read in a long time on here. I love the long author's note so I decided to asnwer the questions you asked...lol.:
1.) I feel bad for Calvin because he truly does love Lily but I don't like him at all becuase Lily belongs with James...lol.
2.) I absolutely loveee James! I only wish that Lily would stop being stupid and date him! Lol.
3.) I think Lily needs to stop fighting herself and get with James! Lol.
Overall, I love this story so much and it makes me sad that you're not planning on doing more than 30 chapters...I wish this one could go on forever. Great job with the descriptions of feelings and stuff...makes the readers feel what the characters are feeling. Best story ever...that's all I have left to say. :)
**Emma(please update soon! Lol.)
Author's Response: (: Thank you for your review - it really did make me smile. I agree with 1, 2, and 3. Don\'t worry, Lily will stop being stupid soon =]. I feel like going past 30 chapters will sort of be milking it although when I really think about it my mind puts the story more in the range of 33-34 haha. And of course I\'ll write more after this - probably more Lily/James as it\'s my favorite HP ship
Well, like I said in my first review, I am reading all of this and I love it so far. I like the difference perspectives because it just keeps the readers attention. Again, excellent job.
Well I just spent about three hourd reading this whole thing and I LOVE it. I only wish there was more and that it could go on forever. Please please PLEASE update soon. It's probably the best fic I have ever read. Keep up the amazing work!
Author's Response: (: Thank you very much for your dedication and praise. Haha I sound like a speech giver.
I am a Calvin-hater, and I feel bad for him...lol. But, it was for the best, Lily is desinted to be with James. Another amazing chapter. Please, keep updating! I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Poor Calvin =[ Lily\'s boyfriends always end up the most abused guys. Haha. Except for James.
Wow...I don't feel like I am worthy enough to even comment on this. I generally don't stray into this particular ship....why I have no idea but I recently decided to delve into the unknown and try out my own james/lily fic and I realized...I have no idea how to begin. So I decided to start reading some to see how the characters acted (since I know virtually nothing about either of them) and this is the first one I read. I have only read the first chapter but I absolutely adore it. "You have excellent syntax and diction" as my english professor has said to me a few times. If the rest of this is as good as the first chapter(which I am sure it is), I will be reading the whole thing. I like the way you throw in some dark feelings towards the war. Again, excellent job and you will be seeing more of my reviews as I continue reading this masterpiece.
Author's Response: (: Thank you very much. :D
Summary: Late night conversations leave Lily Evans taking advice from the most unlikely of people.
AWWWWW! I really like this! Sirius is one of my favorite characters and I think you did a really good job on this. It's def being added to my favorites. Aww...I really wish this was a chaptered one! Lol.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Haha, trust me, you\'re glad this is a one shot; whenever I dare to attempt a chaptered fic I end up updating once a year if even that. ;) Thanks for the review!
Summary: Rachel Lestrange never believed that she could fall for Harry Potter. After all, she is the daughter of two Death Eaters who have been locked up in Azkaban for most of her life. But now she is falling, and hard. Little does she know that Harry has the same feelings for her-and their forbidden love could very well lead to their doom.
UPDATE: This story is on hiatus at the moment. I'm going to finish writing it before I submit any more chapters. This could take a few months. Please be patient!
Well I really like this story and I hope you have more of it soon! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad to hear you\'re liking the story. =] I\'m really sorry that it\'s taking so long to update, but I am just so busy this year..it could be a very long time before I get any more chapters up. =/
Summary: What comes after the deaths of the seven Weasley sons? A two-part poem describing the events and aftermath of the Final Battle.
This story is now complete.
I don't normally venture into the poetry section but this one caught my eye. I really liked overall but for some reason I knew the beginning line sounded familiar: fair is foul and foul is fair.
We just finished up reading Macbeth in my college english course and I was like hmm...so I did a little research and that's where that quote is from. Fair is Foul and Foul is Fair is something said by the three witches in the play of Macbeth by William Shakespheare.
Just pointing that out in case you thought you made that part up or something...lol. I can't write poetry...well I can I'm just lazy, so anyone that can, I greatly esteem.
Author's Response: Thanks for that. I love Macbeth, and the three witches have some of the best quotes (fair is foul, double double toil and trouble, etc.) in the whole play. I\'m not entirely sure this was a complimentary post, but thanks nonetheless ;)
Summary: For some people, regret is a dominating force. Erika Delian knows it first-hand. After 13 years of self-imposed seclusion, regret is all she has left. But with the return of the only man she ever loved, she will be forced to confront his anger, as well as her own guilty conscience.
Sirius/OC Set during OotP
Well, I am quite glad that I stumbled upon this little gem. It's really good. I love Sirius so I'm very happy that I found this one. Great job. :)
Author's Response: I\'m so glad you like it! Thanks for taking the time to review.
Summary: Partially inspired by the song "All I Need" by Within Temptation. Book 7 disregarded.
Harry undertakes one final task; learning how to forgive.
Only parts of book seven are dissregarded, some changed as you'll note later.
Second chapter is submitted at last. First chapter is edited.
W-O-W. That is pretty much the only words I could think of to describe this story and your ability to write. I just had to listen to this song before I read the story and it is a very good song for this story. You are a very descriptive writer. I hardly flinch at anything but reading the description of ginny's death...I flinched. I wanted to cry when you described Harry's sadness at Ginny's death and Hermione's at Ron's. I cannot wait for this to be updated. You are a very gifted writer and I hope that you never stop writing.
Draco is apprehended by members of the Order and held for questioning. While Harry and Ron search for Horcruxes, Hermione has to stay behind and is asked to tend to their ‘guest’. After two months of confinement, a beaten down Draco and a frustrated Hermione start a tentative friendship, based entirely on loneliness. Draco is set free after agreeing to help the Order, but when Harry and Hermione are captured by Death Eaters, he has to decide whom he will betray, his master, or the girl he can’t stop thinking about.
I have made a few minor changes to chapter 9, I changed the direction of the end of the story so it was neccassary. Chapter 10 is in the que now.
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
Woah...lol. I am uber confused. So is this like starting from a point in the future and the rest will be like a flashback because of the Draco giving her a ring thing? So they are together in this chapter? Lol..wow..very well written. I like it a lot.
I'm still reading this. I like it a lot. Very well written, nice descriptions, everyone seems very IC. Great job. Can't wait for more. :)
Summary: I am Teddy Lupin. I have found and lost love. I have lived many lives. And I am surely about to die. I am Teddy Lupin. This is my story.
I really like this fic! Sorry it took me soo long to get a chance to look over it. I only have enough time to read this chapter but I will definataly be reading the rest of it. It's an interesting fic, not one that I have seen too often. Keep up the great work!
Summary: You’re holding her heart in the palm of your hand. Squeeze it slightly, and you’re killing her; let it go, and she’s lost all hope.
For Sirius and Clarimonde, it wasn’t cliché the day they ran into each other, it was fate. What becomes more surprising is that Clarimonde is a Slytherin, something which Sirius has detested since his emergence in the world. But something kept them together, and it wasn’t just their hate for Regulus that bound them together, it was what they knew, and truly (and in a cliché sense), the love they felt for each other. But what happens when the Slytherin side of Clarimonde shows through? What happens when Sirius bashes everything her house stands for? What happens when Clarimonde is being taunted by demons that won’t let her go? Can their relationship last even when she thinks its cliché, and he thinks its fate, even though it has transpired into this crazy little thing called love?
I love it! This is my new fic obsession. I will be checking for updates on this one every day. I lovee Sirius and I love the way you portray and characterize him. Great job!
Author's Response: Aww, thank you so much! That\'s so flattering.(:
Darn...lol. So close to another chapter, yet so far, far away! Lol...I do hope that the next chapter gets validated rather quickly. I don't know how many days I can go without reading htis wonderful story. I hope this is going to be like...30 chapters...lol. Again, great job. The best sirius fic I've read so far.
Author's Response: Actually, it looks like it\'s going to be roughly 40 chapters.Dx But that\'s because they started off during the mid-sixth year. The queue is having problems, but I do hope chapter 5 gets validated soon as well. Thank you for the second review.(:
Author's Response: I misread your comment about the chapters: I thought you meant that you hoped it wasn\'t thirty chapters. My bad: no it\'s looking to be at least forty, and I\'m hoping that it wouldn\'t be fifty- yikes.
Oh I totally hate you for not having more of this up...lol. Please write quickly Jess! Lol...take a break from being a vampire specialist and write! Lol. :)
There was quite a bit of squeeing going on when I checked my email and found out this was updated. I love the SLSL...I instantly got it...lol. I like the chapter. Clar and Sirius just mesh well...lol. I can't wait for the next update! I love it! And I also love how James tried, yet miserably failed...lol, to defend Clar...please update soon! Lol.
Author's Response: Aww, thank you.(: The part with James was my beta\'s favorite part too. Ha. Yes, I love the acronym for SLSL as well. I like to consider it a little bit of genius on my part. (:
And might I just add how super uber excited I am to be the first reviewer for this chapter. I do believe I am this story's number one fan...lol.
Author's Response: You really know how to flatter an author, don\'t you?
Darn cliffhangers. I am very excited that I am, once again, the first to review this unless someone has typed faster than me...lol. I love this story and I cant wait to find out what was holding her back! Please update soon! And great job, once again. Flawless in my eyes. :)
Author's Response: Thank you again.(: You\'ll shall learn next chapter, promise.

Melanie battles her brother's rage over her unique powers while she and Draco grow closer with each passing day. Draco is working as a spy for the Order but when some dangerous tasks for the Dark Lord get out of hand, Melanie worries for his safety. Will their romance last, or will Melanie be ripped away from Draco for all eternity?
****UPDATE**** 7/31/08 Chapter Five just submitted :) ********
7/30/2011 Years later I'm finally getting ready to update this story. I've re-written this chapter five times so far now. Chapters 5 and 6 sort of blend together, I'm trying to pick a good separation point. Chapter 5 is less Draco. Chapter 6 is ALL Draco. Thanks to anyone who has stuck with this story.
CHAPTER FIVE IS VALIDATED AND UP! :D Reviews are appreciated.
Hmm...this is going to be awkward but I cant tell if this has been validated or not so...hmm...lol...thats why im reviewing my own story...lol. :)
Author's Response: grrr...I dont know how to delete this...lol. Wow...I must look like a very competent person right now...nope...still not validated. People are going to be like how is there a review if it\'s not even validated? Lol....I wish the delete button would work right now...lol.
