I decided that I wanted to revamp my entire bio, considering how long it was getting. Be warned that this bio CONTAINS DEATHLY HALLOWS SPOILERS.
So hi! I'm Jerri, also known as Just Tink- as in, you can JUST call me TINK. I answer to Tink, JT, and Jerri, but if you want to make up another, cooler nickname you're welcome to. As you can see, I love Disney- though not as much as Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived Even Though He Died. Sort Of.
So how AWESOME was Deathly Hallows? I mean, really. Best book ever, by far. I cried for about twenty-four hours straight, but other than that I really couldn't have been happier with it. Because- "They were SNOGGING!" =)
Currently I have finished writing my chaptered fic, Late Bloomer, (!!!!), and as soon as I can beta it I'll get it up on the site. As my beta is a mod (and a fantastical one at that) it may still be awhile, but there will be no two month lulls- I promise.
I also have two chaptered romance fics in the works- one, a Percy/OC, that disregards DH, and one, a Victoire Weasley centric fic called 'Offending Her Highness' that is chock-full of spoilers. OHH will be up soon as a one-shot, and after Late Bloomer is finished I'll work on expanding it. My Percy fic is still in the early stages of development, so expect OHH to be worked on first. I'd also like to get some new humor stories up, as well as expanding on plot bunnies given to me by DH- I'm itching to write missing moments from that book.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the stories I have up! (And for the record, I love the Quicksilver Quills and if nominated will probably fall down dead. But since that is unlikely, I urge everyone to get over to the boards and nominate their favorite stories! Yes, even if they're not mine. Your favorite story's author will probably give you cookies.)
aw... what a great story. I burst out laughing about the elephant/Fred thing- you wrote it really well. And Percy was well characterized, which is difficult... but you did a good job! One little grammer thing- when Percy shouts "expecto Patronum" and the elephant comes out, you forgot the second quotation mark at the end. Great story, and good luck!
Author's Response: Ah, thanks! I\'ll fix that. I\'m glad you laughed about the elephant and Fred, and I\'m also really glad you thought Percy was well characterized. I don\'t know him nearly as well as Snape.
excellent! The memories were very well done- it's good that you mixed the bad memories with the good. I was a little suprised that the dress robes were such a powerful memory, but I suppose she just really loved her father. Loved Nott... good luck!
Author's Response: I initially had Christmas shopping with her dad as the memory, but somehow it came down to the dress robe thing. Trust me, I have absolutely no idea how. I\'m glad you realize she loved her dad a lot, I was worried about that not being clear. Nott\'s characterization was good? I\'m glad to hear that! Thanks so much for this review!
being an insane dog lover myself, I loved this story- the memories were so well done! Maris was a real character as well, and I really connected with her. I'm curious, though- what was the AU warning for? good luck!
Author's Response: I actually don\'t know, I guess I am just so used to putting the AU warning on my fics. But part of my mind rationalized it as have to do with my OCs. It probably can be taken off though...Thanks for the review!
wow! I really enjoyed that. I didn't catch on that it was Cho until the scene where she's sketching, which was interesting- in a good way. I liked how you didn't just say 'this is her memory'- you lived it and made it part of the story. Good luck!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the nice review! I thought it would be obvious it was Cho, but I\'m rather pleased that it stayed sort of anonymous for a while... I was hoping for that. :D Thanks for reading and reviewing!
absolutely brilliant- a good satire fic is hard to come by, but I think I found one. I loved when Harry and Ron came across the 'Professors' James/Lily- classic! I hope to see more of this soon, and if you don't I'm afraid I'll have to go all Voldy-Pants on you... great reference.
Author's Response: LOL, thanks so much, Jerri! ~Lindsey :)
great story! Merope was characterized excellently, as were the rest of the Gaunts. I'm not sure how I feel about Tom- in the books I have no sympathy here, but you write him as a much kinder character. Excellent work!
Author's Response: Well thank you! :-) As for Tom, I wholly agree with you. But it didn\'t help this plot much if he was horrible to Merope as well. I felt bad for her. Haha. But thanks for your review!
All is not well.
George uses work and Firewhisky to cope with Fred's death until a drink with a friend leads to something that dulls pain better than alcohol. Emotionally torn by grief, he struggles to allow Alicia into his life...and then comes baby....
*Winner of the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Dark/Angsty Story*
this is a great story! Alicia is well done, and George's grief is very apparent. keep up the great work!
Author's Response: I do believe in reviewers, I do, I do! :)
Very, very good. An interesting scenario, to be sure, but well-thought out and certainly realistic. And I loved the end- "the next great adventure was considerably less eventful than the last."
oh, Schmergo. *shakes head* WHY must you make me laugh all the time? Why? Excellent, as always. =)
Author's Response: It\'s one of my many evil points I guess! ^_^ Thanks! (You know, it would be horrible if a little minion followed you around all the time making you laugh hysterically whether you want to or not. I think I want to be one when I grow up.)
adorable. I've never been a Harry/Ginny fan, but this was wonderfully written- I didn't think about Ginny dealing with Fred's death. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you! *huggles fellow Hufflepuff*
oh, dear, Schmergo. How much satire can fit into one person's head? I particularly liked 'Believe in Me', as it gave me a rather stunning mental image of Dan Radcliffe in a large white dress singing soprano. *shudders* I didn't know all the songs (I've only seen the movie) but the ones I knew were great!
Author's Response: HAHAHAHAHA! Imagining Dan Radcliffe in a white dress... you just made my day. And as for how much satire can fit into one person\'s head... *tips head sideways and pours undistilled satire into a measuring cup from left ear* Wow. Apparently, enough for about six more albums!
very cute! The idea of 'Seamus/Me' didn't appeal to me at first, but you did it nicely without making it cliched. And I liked how even when he was fighting with Harry you understood why. Its good to see the minor characters get some props- good job!
Author's Response: *Jumps for joy* Thanks, I considered making it Seamus/OC, would that have made more sense? Oh well, for some reason \"Me\" seemed more ambiguous, which is what I was going for. I\'m glad you got over your initial hesitation and read it, and liked it!
Usually, when I write a review for a humor fic, I try to tell the author what my favorite jokes were. Unfortunately, to do that here I'd have to paste the story into this tiny little review box. And you'd come to the review page thinking, 'wow! Jerri finally got off her lazy bum and wrote a SPEW worthy review!' Only you'd find my senseless ramblings instead. Which, actually, is what this has turned into. I loved the whole thing, is basically what I'm trying to say here. Great job!
Author's Response: Hahahaha, Jerri! Thank you so much! Now... I do want to say this... this isn\'t a humour fic, it\'s in the general section! Fwahahahaha! I guess I\'ll take it as a compliment that you thought it was funny enough to count as a humour fic.
oooh.... it gets more and more interesting. I love the lyrics- they fit perfectly. Although Girl Scouts missed the Pop Frog song.
Author's Response: Yay, thanks! I was, for a brief span of time, a Girl Scout, and I made it my business to teach that song to my fellow scouts. In retrospect, this is probably why I was a Girl Scout for a *brief* span of time.
I think 'yikes' would suffice here. I really want to know who the Phoenix is... obviously I don't actually want you to tell me, but I want you to just the same. Must go find the soundtrack now.
Author's Response: The Phoenix is Fawkes... thought it was obvious. No, I\'m just kidding. That would be pathetic. ^_^ You can find a lot of the songs on youtube!
and I just reread my review and want to clarify that when I said 'yikes', I mean it like, 'yikes! Lily's being blackmailed by a fish fryer! Bad news for Miss Lils!' not 'yikes! My eyes are burning out!' EXCELLENT story.
Author's Response: Hahahahaha, thanks for the clarification! Though when you said \"fish fryer,\" I was imagining Snape working at a fast food place with his greasy hair falling out of a hairnet and a stupid paper hat, going \"Welcome to McIck\'s, how may I spoil your appetite today?\"
oh, wow. Certainly a change from most of your other published pieces, but I loved it. I've never read the Scarlet Pimpernel, but I know the basics of the story, and it was brilliant how you incorporated them. Heard a few of the songs as well, and I'm personally hoping to see a 'Riddle' song coming up. Great job!
Author's Response: Ooh! Someone who\'s actually heard some of the songs from the musical! (My favourites are \"Falcon In the Dive\" and \"Into the Fire.\") Thanks very much, though I find it amusing how every piece of writing I do, people review and say it\'s different from my other stories!
