Hello, I'm Hermione_Rocks, though you may call me Anna, or D.E, or Mrs. Snape . . . whatever flies your kite. I'm a high school student who is hopelessly obsessed with many things, such as Harry Potter, musicals (current favorite is Sweeney Todd), books/reading, various Internet web-sites, and food.

As you can probably tell, I have an incurable love for writing fan-fiction. Would I do better to be working on original fiction? Probably. But at the moment, I just want to have fun with writing. One day I hope to be published, but I'm really not in any rush. Right now, I just want to enjoy all this. :)

I hope you find something you'd like to read while you're here, and please leave a review to let me know your thoughts. I'm always looking for feedback, good or bad.

Grey by shadow_of_fire

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 4 Reviews
Summary: They say time is a great healer.

Theyíre wrong.

There are so many wounds that donít heal.


A submission for the October monthly challenge, on the theme time - submitted by shadows_in_fire (Gryfindor house)

Now I understand why everyone puts 'R+R' on their fics. Some comments would be helpful!

Good work. It was short, but it got the point across nicely. Keep writing stories - it may be your first, but you did a really great job.



Ten Years by orange_balloon

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 15 Reviews
Summary: When 30-year-old Hermione Granger runs into an old Hogwarts classmate on the street she finds that time doesn't always change things. . .
Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 11/19/05 Title: Chapter 1: (one-shot)

That was really good. It's nice to see a story where Malfoy ends up on the good side, but that doesn't make him a good person. Great work!

Author's Response: Thanks, Hermione_Rocks! I adore Draco's character mostly because he is so nasty. Even when I consider that he might go over to the good side, I have a difficult time believing that it would change his character. I'm glad to see you feel the same!



Resolution by Vindictus Viridian

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 31 Reviews
Summary: "You did not come here to play chess."
On New Year's Eve, Minerva McGonagall finds herself without the usual distractions of students and staff. She decides there is only one way to solve the puzzle before her, and that she will have to take a rather large chance.
This was a submission for the Redemption Challenge and contains huge howling unavoidable HBP spoilers.

Your writing style is brilliant. The pairing was different, but still very believable and accurate. Excellent job!

Author's Response: Thank you! I had been wanting to write a SS/MM interaction, when Harry isn't looking, for quite some time; the Challenge just gave a particularly large and energetic bunny.



The Twelve Days of Christmas . . . from Hermione by orange_balloon

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 24 Reviews

Really funny. Great work!

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it, Hermione_Rocks!



Redemption at the Shrieking Shack by Phoenix5225

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 12 Reviews
Summary: She was lonely, and needed to get away. She thought Hogsmeade would make a good destination. As she entered the Shrieking Shack, she found the very last person she expected to see. She wanted to kill him, but just may end up saving him instead. For Hufflepuff.

Nice job! Snape was portrayed well; he lost control but didn't get out of character. Although Hermione did seem to trust him rather quickly, considering she had just run into him. Other than that, great story!

Great story! You had a nice style of writing. The song fit in perfectly, how you dispersed it. Again, really nice!

Author's Response: Ahhh! Another reviewer...Woohoo! Thanks for taking the time to review!!! Hmm, I really liked the song and the story fit very naturally.



I Do Believe by suckr4romance

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 21 Reviews
Summary: Written in response to Winter Snows Challenge Three: A Kiss for the Ages.



HBP SPOILERS! A tale of Hufflepuff romance, one concerning Susan Bones and Justin Finch-Fletchley. Itís witty, itís romantic, and itís Hufflepuff! What more could you ever seek (plus a little bit of fluff)? If you watch Chamber of Secrets, you'll notice that Susan and Justin are standing NEXT TO each other in the Dueling Club scene! Coincidence? I think not.

Fabulous poem. It's very chilling, and the rhyme scheme is really good too. Poor Severus though...

I really enjoyed this. It was slightly slow, but being a first chapter this is often the case. I'll be watching for a update!

Aww...the doggy's dead. :( I thought that James giving Sirius the camera was really sweet. Great chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for commenting! Feedback! I THRIVE on feedback! Chappy 7 is coming, but slower than I\'d like! Ugh! Thanks for reading! <3

Hey, just started reading and I'm really enjoying it! Regulus is really cute, and the relationship between the Marauders is very interesting. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you! New readers makes my tummy do flops! Yeah! *giggles* Regulus is just to cute he makes my heart ache *pets him*. Yes, I\'m high on caffeine right now so this response means nil...pfft. Oh well. Thank you so much for reading tho! Makes my face smile!

More Than a Feeling by Kerichi

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 268 Reviews
Summary:

Severus Snape has ambitions to rise above his humble beginnings. Eris Greyback has a family debt to repay. Their romance is a more complicated brew than the trickiest of potions. SSEG, LEJP. The sequel, The Potions Master's Apprentice, is also complete.

*Winner of the 2007 QSQ Award for Best Marauder Era Story*

Date: 12/27/06 Title: Chapter 24: Decisions

Yay! It was perfect, and I'm glad it's a happy ending. Looking forward to the sequel! :)

Author's Response: Thank you for looking forward to the sequel. I think you\'ll enjoy the adult shift of the story and the Welsh location!



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 10/08/06 Title: Chapter 15: Gatherings

Just started this story a few days ago, and I really like it! Eris is a very well-rounded OC, and I like your portrayal of Severus. :) Excellent story!

Author's Response: Thank you! ^_^ I kept the HP version of the Mary Sue Litmus Test in mind when I started writing. LOL. No Marauder triangles, no saving the day, no mean girls disliking her for being pretty and smart, snicker, snicker, just a romance between Snape and a girl whose family background helps her understand his ambitions, even if she doesn\'t share them.



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 12/12/06 Title: Chapter 22: Tensions

I loved Severus' house tour. It was just so...him (sorry, can't think of how else to describe it :), and the whole scene was very entertaining. Eager for Eris' reasonings in next chapter...

Author's Response: That\'s the perfect way to describe it! ^_^ Eris will have her reasons, but will Severus listen? *dun dun dun* :D



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 11/11/06 Title: Chapter 18: Voldemort

Very nice. I also like how you are using the Knights idea in this story. And, this is small but it made me smile: Narcissa's daydream. :) Great job!

Author's Response: I\'ve portrayed Narcissa in another story like Patsy in Absolutely Fabulous- snarky, hasn\'t eaten food since \'73, drinks her meals, LOL, but I like this Narcissa even more, so I\'m glad her dream made you smile! :)



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 12/18/06 Title: Chapter 23: Darkness

And just when I thought there was going to be a happy ending...! :O Well, I still really enjoyed this chapter, and I thought Eris and Lily's friendship (if you could call it that...) was well done. Update soon!

Author's Response: It aint over until the train pulls out of Hogwarts, lol, but I\'m glad you liked the girls bonding over mutual interests :) and will definitely update soon!

Colors by Orm Irian

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 19 Reviews
Summary: HG/SS romanceóa bit dark. Addiction is a frightening thing, but it doesnít have to be lonelyÖ
Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 08/15/07 Title: Chapter 1: one shot

Wow, what a powerful one-shot. I really liked how you brought them together through such absolute need. How they both became so drawn to each other because of their bond, and then how it spread to actually caring for one another.

I loved the bond that you created between them. I'd be interested to know a little more about it, actually; did someone create it? Can only witches/wizards possess it, or can other magical beings have it too? I really like how you described the brilliant color affects and surges of power they both experienced. And how you put Severus in the 'weaker' position because of the bond. He needs to be in that place once in a while. ;)

I'm wondering how Hermione feels about now working for Voldemort and against Harry. If you ever wrote a sequel I think that's one thing that should definitely be included. Does she not care that she's working against Harry as long as she is with Severus? Or is she secretly still trying to help him?

Overall, this was a brilliant one-shot. I am very impressed at your ability to write such a desperate and vivid romance between these two characters. *applauds* Well done.

Author's Response: Thanks for your thoughtful and extensive review. I really like hearing what readers thought about my stories--feed back is so essential. I have recently posted a companion piece to Colors, called Human Touch. It is on Ashwinder, The Pertulant Poetess and FanFiction.net. Some of the questions you asked are answered there, but mostly, it is the story from Snapes POV with some backstory thrown in. If you like my style, I also have other fics posted on those sites. Thanks again for your extravagant praise and for taking the time to leave a review.
