Bio:
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.

Very enjoyable. I liked how, so easily, you switched from humorous to serious in this chapter. I'm interested to see where you go with this! :)

Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed it!

 

Summary: Its a quiet sort of day in the Gryffindor common room. The Marauders decide to lighten things up with a little Truth or Dare. But, they think that's boring. They have their own version......

“That’s low, Sirius, even for you.”
“Who said I was high?” asked Sirius in mock confusion.

*giggles* Great line. *huggles Sirius*
This was a good beginning, quite entertaining! Roughly how old are the Marauders here? They seemed around fifteen/sixteen-ish...just curious. Anyhow, nice work!

Author's Response: Yeah, I was thinking 6th/7th year for them. Thanks for the compliments, I\'m starting to worry that the next chapter won\'t live up! That\'s my favorite line too!

Author's Response: I just relized, if I want to have any Lily/James action, it will have to be seventh year.

I don't think you need to say the chapter isn't funny; let people decide what they think. And it seems they've decided it's funny. Including me. :) Awesome chapter!

Author's Response: Okay, I\'ll stop saying that. That\'s just because of my low slf-confidence level I guess. I\'m glad you thought it was funny and awesome! Yay!

I'm not exactly sure whether to be honored or angry that I'm being made to read a book for twelve hours straight. LOL. :P

Anyhow, very funny chapter, although I don't really think McGonagall would have tolerated the llama -- she would have probably transfigured it into some small object, or something. But, it made for an entertaining read, so...



Author's Response: I think you should fell honored! lol Actually, that never even occured to me. She probably would of....

Date: 06/12/07 Title: Chapter 4: In the Room of Requirement

Oh good, you updated, I was starting to worry that you wouldn't! Anyhow, so another awesome chapter, but I would like a little more action. ;) Next one seems promising though, with all the Dares!

Also, now that the game has been opened to other Houses, will we be seeing more familar faces (I'm sure you know who I especially want to see, teehee)? :D

Author's Response: Don\'t ever fret! I will always eventually update. And, there is quite a bit of chaos to come.....



I\'m hoping to include some more known people and I do know who you want. (There\'s actually a very timid bunny which contains him getting a big role...)

Date: 07/20/07 Title: Chapter 5: Well, Tomorrow Came

Sevy! Yay! *wiggle* I am so touched that you thought of me, Morgan, lol. *huggles*

So, yes, another wonderful chapter, and a good conclusion to the story. A nit-pick, though:

Just as the excite babble was beginning to die down, and students returning to their lunches- This should be 'excited babble. :)

Really not much more to say, I just wish it had been a little longer (more time for dear Severus, you see ;)), but otherwise found nothing to really quibble over. :D Excellent fic!

Author's Response: Awww. *huggles* I\'m just glad you liked it. After all, what is a Marauder\'s era fic without at least one confrontation with Sevy?



Whoops. I\'ll go fix that now. Nice catch!



I know, ending (or at least mine) always seem short. lol. Thanks so much!

 

Revelations by Cheshlin
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary: Helga Hufflepuff has had dreams for years. As time goes on, she realizes that they seem to be prophetic of what will happen with her friends. She hopes that the fight from one nightmare was just a nightmare, but only time will tell.









This was for the Dreams Challenge in the New Years Challenges..

I liked how you showed Helga's dreams; using their animal instead of the actual person made everything more mystical. Also enjoyed Salazar's more human side, even though that made it harder to watch as he went "bad". Nice job, and good luck in the challenge!

Author's Response: We know that Salazar and Godric were friends as some point. That proved to me that he had to have been human at some point. My goal was to show his downfall in a realistic way. I\'m glad that you enjoyed this story. I loved writing it! Cyns

Unpredicted Happenings by Ron x Hermione
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: Ron and Hermione were married, in love… and had even had a child.

But Voldemort had ripped it apart, just like he had so many other families. And Ron doesn’t know how to live with himself. He no longer has the will to live, no less survive normally. He means to Apparate to the Burrow, when something goes wrong.

He now walks along a deserted highway. He encounters a pair of Muggles, one of them in love with a car, and his girlfriend.

But then, he encounters something that he hadn’t anticipated. A pub, from the middle of nowhere at that, comes into existence. Ron finally realizes that life must go on, even if it is without your family.

This was originally written for the New Year's Challenge Contest, prompt, The Sign of the Green Dragon. I am Ron x Hermione, of Hufflepuff.

Complete Story!

Aw...I can't believe you killed Ron. :( I can see how maybe that's the only way he'd be happy, but I was kind of hoping for him to try and blindly find his way in the world or something.... Overall though, I really enjoyed this. The man with his car, and Ron thinking about how silly it was for this guy to put his car before his girlfriend was all very well done. And this is random, but Blekinsop asking to be called Blen made me laugh. :P Awesome job!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I\'m, glad that you enjoyed it! I really made this as a one-shot, then saw that it had to be three chapters for the prompt! And, knowing me, I had to just make it four! *giggles* But, yes. Thank you so much for the compliments! ~Lindsey :)

Revival of Autumn by AstroFire
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 16]

Summary: The war is long over, and Harry is now reflecting on what his life is. But is it really what he thought it would be?

A short one-shot with Autism as the main theme. Meant for mature readers. Rating due to the sensitive topic.

Loads of thanks to Kasey for modding and guiding me with this story.

Wow. Just...wow. I should probably wait until tomorrow to review this, as my thoughts will probably be a little more coherent then. But...I really just have to review this now.

Amazing and very touching story. My brother has autism, and though he and Hope are very different (seeing as autism is such a broad disability), there are also striking similarities. I was very moved by how distant Hope was from Harry, because my brother often gives little sign that he cares about anyone. Anyhow, wonderful one-shot, definitely adding to favorites.

Author's Response: Hello Hermione_Rocks :P

Heheh, thank you very much for still reviewing :) Did you stay awake all night? Because when I do, my thoughts gradually begin to lose coherence :p

First of all, thanks for your support to this story. I really was afraid this story could be frown down upon (even when Abbi had liked it), but I think so far it has really turned the other way around :D

I didn\'t know your brother had autism. It\'s actuallly very surprising how, if you simply set to it, you can find so many people that somehow relates to Autism. Actually, many months ago I considered the possibility of being an Aspie myself, but being that in my country it\'s not common to take neuropsychiatric tests or anything of the sorts, I prefer not to assume anything.

Anyhow, as you said, autism is a quite broad disability. This distance between Harry and Hope was the \'emotion\' ruling the story. However, as the resolution shows, the distance is only superficial, for at a deeper level, Harry finally realizes they are close. And that\'s exactly what I like the most of the story: that even when Autism affects a person, it does not distances a person from his/her beloved ones; or in other more classy words, loves conquers it all.

Thank you very much for reviewing! :D See you in the CR :)

Nice start here. I like your characterization so far of Blekinsop (love that name :P). One nit-pick though:

"If he had really loved me, he would of taken the risk."

This should be would've, or would have, not would of. Other than that, good beginning, interested to see where you take it! :)

Author's Response: Whoops. Thanks for the catch! I really like Blenkinsop too!

I had to read this when I saw it was to a Wicked song, as I am also a big fan. :D It was very good, although I'm not a Draco/Luna shipper. The lyrics fit very well too. I would have liked a little more detail about their relationship though. But overall, it was really nice, great job!

Author's Response: Go Wicked fans! *dances* *notices stares* What?

I\'m actually considering rewriting this whole thing, the relationship part being only one reason. I hope it turns out better than it is now.

Thanks for the review! ~Sam

Oh, wow. Amazing. This is such a short piece, but you managed to squeeze so much into it at the same time. I loved how you contrasted between the three sisters, but also showed how united they were. I adore the image of them all standing together, holding hands, about to enter the room. And I also like that you didn't say what they were doing: I did wonder, but I'm glad you left it mysterious. Excellent job! :)

Fallen by StaceyLC
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 29]

Summary: The deathly hallows of a man’s mind are a dark and dangerous place; a place which one can be easily lost if they walk the line between light and dark too carelessly. It’s easy to fall in, to lose yourself. You may think you’ve not strayed too deeply into that gaping maw of death and despair until you look back up from the hole and can no longer see the light. And then… then it is too late. You will be truly gone.

Author's Response: Thank you!

 

Summary:



What do you do when the man who murdered your best friend turns up and claims to be innocent?




What do you do when you realise you slowly start trusting him again?




What do you do when you fall in love against your will – with a man half your age?





This is a McGonagall/Snape fic about trust, friendship, shame, and love. It’s canon compliant otherwise; set immediately after HBP except for a mini prologue.




This fic also is my attempt at continuing the at Book 7, so you also have the war against Voldemort, the search for the Horcruxces, and the way they run Hogwarts during that year included in the plot.




Side characters like Ron, Hermione, Moody, Lupin, Tonks, Neville, Augusta Longbottom, Draco, Hagrid, and the rest of the Weasleys get their fair share of the story.




It is done novel style, which means that some apparently minor issues mentioned in early chapters will become important in later chapters. I do recommend you read them in the right order.




To be on the safe side, I rated this “Professors” because it contains violence, sexuality, character deaths, and torture - although none of them described in detail.




Also I now have added an AU warning - my story contains two detals that we will not see happening in "Deathly Hallows". I made the Sorting Hat a Horcrux, and Arthur Weasley will become interim Minister for Magic in my last chapter. Well, I wrote this before those rumors were shot down as non-canon by JKR, and I'd not like to change my plot now - so, sadly, my story has become a bit AU. You have been warned ;-)

This is a really interesting story so far, and surprisingly believable. You've managed to keep both Severus and Minerva very in character, and the plot is intriguing.

I have one nit-pick for this chapter, and that is that you typed Slazar Slytherin, instead of Salazar Slytherin. Other than that, great job! :)

Author's Response: Thank you for leaving me this wonderful review! That is just the thing I wanted to hear... my goal was to keep them both in character as much as possible. Thank you also for pointing out that typo; I will see to chaningin that - it\'s just the thing that is not supposed to happen with 4 betas, but I guess sometimes we all do a sloppy job. Hope you\'ll like the rest of my fic as well.
