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.
Well written, as always. But I still think this should be expanded a bit. I think there is a lot in Draco and Pansy's relationship that needs to be developed. You clearly have a very good idea of how they act together and how they feel about one another, and I would really just like to see them spend more time together so we can see this more. I'm really enjoying this unique take on Pansy, nice job!
The poem flows very nicely; your descriptions were done very well. Nice job.
Author's Response: Thank you!
This is really funny! I especially like the comments section, Bellatrix is very entertaining. :) Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yeah, Bellatrix is cool... and spazzy...
Oh, great! I, like many, really hope there is a sequel or something. :) Excellent job though, even if you keep it like this!
Author's Response: I will try to write a sequel! I\'m planning it out as we speak... er, type!
Hmm...interesting. I enjoyed it, but like others am kind of confused. Does he have to live everything over again...or is it going to go differently now...? Well, anyhow, it was well-written. Nice job!
Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m really glad that you liked it! *giggles* That\'s why I left it as kind of a cliffie, because I want you, the reader, to guess the ending. Will Harry find all of the Horcruxes and defeat Voldemort? Had he just dreamed up Hogwarts, and there was an owl sitting there with a letter to a regular school, that he dreamed of Hogwarts? I don\'t mean for you to be confused! I just want you to guess the ending! ~Lindsey :)
I really didn't think Bellatrix was going to kill Andromeda, especially when she noticed that she had a daughter.... :( Well, I still really enjoyed your story. Although I do think Bellatrix is evil (sorry :), I liked the take on her you presented. Nice job!
Author's Response: I really didn\'t want to have Bella kill Andromeda but it fit the prompt the best. It\'s really not the way I see Bella, I don\'t think she could do it, especially with Tonks in the mix, but most people see Bella differently then me. You\'re very much not alone in thinking she\'s evil, but somehow I can\'t see her that way. I think there\'s more to her than that.
Anyway, I\'m really glad you enjoyed my story and thanks so much for the review. :D
I got curious, and searched for this story. I'm really enjoying it; it's rather sad that Jen is going to leave Kaylie too now, though. Nice job, I'll be watching for the next chapter! :)
Wow. That was excellent. If it weren't for the character death warning at the beginning, I would have thought Ginny would lose her resolve to kill Harry.
I really loved how you portrayed all the emotions in this, and Ginny's ultimate goal merely being to live. I found the idea of getting a stamp on a card to prove you are of 'pure-blood' a little creepy, but can see how this is something the Death Eaterswould do. And, this is minor, but I also loved the idea of throwing a pie in Voldy's face. ;) That seems very satisfying.
Wonderful story, great job!
Author's Response: Anna! *tacklehuggles* Thank you SO MUCH for reviewing (and actually reading my extralong load of utter babble). *giggle*
Sorry if the warning spoilt the story a bit. I guess it could have applied to anyone, but if you got to the end and nobody significant had died yet, well, I suppose it would have been kind of obvious.
As part of the gauntlet prompt thingy, there was a choice to let her NOT kill Harry and lose her resolve, and end the story that way. For some people, killing a character would have been the most sensible thing to do, but my gauntlet character Ginny was a bit of an odd choice...however, I wanted her to kill someone from the start! :D *evil grin*
I think that Ginny - though Gryffindor, probably doesn\'t possess the sort of inate bravery that Harry (and VERY few others) possess. The goal merely \'living\' was something I wanted to keep as to me, it wasn\'t a selfish thing for her to do. Some people in her situation might die/act rashly (like the Rejected in the queue) but I think that Ginny\'s way of bearing the pain - patiently - is probably a lot harder.
I\'m kind of glad you found the card thing creepy...it was meant to be! It was meant to be a way of putting across how much all the pre-bloods were really the \'same\' inthis new society. As long as you\'re pure, you\'re okay etc.
*giggle* PIES. (yeah. anyway...)
Thanks for reviewing! *hugs again* ~Suzie xx
Wow. That was really great. I liked how you 'humanized' Bellatrix, but did not make it as though she was nice or anything out of character. Although I almost did feel sorry for her.... Excellent job!
Teehee! That was really cute. The poem had a very nice flow, and I really enjoyed reading it.
One small nitpick: on the last line, you wrote there, but it should really be their. But other than that it was lovely. :)
Author's Response: Hey Anna! Thanks for the review! ♥ Gin
Aw...that was really cute, and so are the others. This joint-fic project is fun, you guys are awesome. :)
This was nice. I don't like Bellatrix, but I could see her doing this for her sister and niece.
"She may be the daughter of a Mudblood but that’s not her fault."
I really liked that line. I probably wasn't supposed to find it funny, but I kind of did in a grim humor sort of way.... Nice job! :)
Author's Response: Hmmm...don\'t like Bellatrix, huh? I\'m a little obessed. But you might have already known about that.
Anyway, thanks for the review and I\'m glad that you enjoyed my story.
Hee hee, very nice. Voldy's going to have some adjusting to do, isn't he? :) Good luck in the contest!
Author's Response: Yay, thank you for your support!
Aw. I loved it! I've never really thought about what Severus would see in the Mirror of Erised, but your reason fit perfectly. I'm curious as to what Dumbledore sees in the Mirror though.... Great job!
Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks so much for the great review! I\'m so glad you liked this story. I actually wrote a drabble about Dumbledore and the Mirror, which probably had some small influence on this piece now that I think about it. How about that! Thanks for much for reading, and leaving such a nice review! ~Gina :)
Clever logic problem. :) I really enjoyed this 'missing scene', and liked how Severus was 'teaching' even though class was not going. Good work!
Author's Response: Thanks! I had a lot of fun writing it.
Wow. Very well done, it's nice to hear from the more minor characters sometimes. I really enjoyed the voice you gave Pansy. Good luck in the challenge!
Author's Response: Yes, it\'s nice to give the minor characters some love every now and then. Thanks so much for reading! :) -Debbie
Lovely one-shot. I am more of a fan of Lupin/Tonks, but this was very well-written and believable. The tension and arguing between them both was great. The emotion was really conveyed in your writing.
Charlie has very little characterization in canon, and I thought you did a good job fleshing him out as both cocky and bright. As for Tonks, props to you for keeping her very much in character the entire time.
Dishwashing was a Muggle chore, and she was absolutely hopeless at it, but the repetitive monotony of submerging one’s hands in water and scrubbing at it with a brush was character building indeed.
I really liked this line. It shows how Tonks is relying on simple tasks to keep herself alive and not fall into a complete shell.
The only thing I found odd was that Charline and Tonks had never met. Both are around the same age, they most likely would have attended Hogwarts together. And both are members of the Order, so they might've met, however briefly, there as well. Overall though, a very enjoyable piece, well done.
Author's Response: Mm! I\'ve been considering the whole \"how could they not\" thing, but I think at the time with a pairing that I was assigned, when my inital reaction was... Whaaa? I think it was an idea that popped into my head and I ran with it. I\'m planning on re-writing it in some time, so I\'d really love to see you back when I do :)
Sequel to More than a Feeling
*Chapter 10 is 'A Wedding and a Funeral'*
Aw, I was nearly crying at the end, even if Severus wasn't. :( *hugs Severus*
I enjoyed the way you showed Severus' relationship with both Eileen and Tobias. And the 'companion' tag for Eris/Epis was adorable. :) Excellent chapter.
Author's Response: He might not appreciate your \'Hufflepuff sentiment\', but I do! ^_^ Thank you for being touched, and for liking the tag. They might not be married, but she\'s his life companion.
No, I didn't just realize the sequel was up today... >.< You posted it fast. Anyhow, just read both chapters and loved them.
'Sardonically, he wondered if all women, regardless of age or magical ability, were Hufflepuffs inside.' Great line. :P
Author's Response: Thank you! I think Severus enjoys the Hufflepuff side of Eris\' personality. ^_~
Aw! That was very good! It's all very true too...
You may think you're not much of a poet, but this piece proves you wrong. ;) There wasn't any rhyme scheme, but that made it even more enjoyable. Nice job!
Author's Response: Thnak you! I\'m beginning to think that I just can\'t write RHYMING poems. I have a few more ideas for non-rhyming PotterPoems. I suffer from the opposite of writer\'s block, I\'m afraid...
