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.)
Summary: Sure, the tales of the Trio are great, and I'm not denying it. But what happens after the end of their story? Death, deception, and disagreements, to name a few things. Join Cora Potter, along with her best friends Olivia and Drew, during their first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry- and I can guarantee that you will never see the HP universe the same way again.
Chapter eleven is being painfully slow, isn't it? I promise to have it done by the time the queue reopens!
greatness! She lives! *trumpets blaring and confetti* The plot thickens! And lots of Drewness! Yay! *more trumpets and confetti* But so short! Update soon, please! (And yes, today I decided to leave a spammy review with lots of exclamation marks. I'm tired.) Thanks for the update!
Author's Response: don\'t mind the exclamation points!!! they\'re a fact of life! thanks for sticking with it, Tink, it means a lot. as for Drew... he\'s got his own plotline, finally! YAY! next update much faster, I\'m sure! maybe I\'ll even get around to writing after American Idol. *calls Melinda\'s number about a gazillion times* thanks for reviewing again! and I\'m glad you enjoyed it!
WHAT CHINESE SUPERMODEL????
Is this something I should/want to know? *Waves to sunshine* update, please!
Author's Response: oh... now I wish I hadn\'t brought up the whole supermodel thing. You don\'t want to know. let\'s leave it at that...
Once again, absolutely, completely, totally fantastic. ALL DREW, ALL THE TIME! How could I NOT love it? My fangirlness was sighing happily inside. I loved how he kept running into things, and follows around 'the elite of the first year set'. Very nice. So Luna edits the Quibbler now, does she? Hmm... interesting. But what's up with Olivia's personality changes? I didn't think it was possible to get more sucked in, but here I am. Please include a quidditch match- I love comic relief, especially if the story is going to get darker. (And maybe you could put Drew in the stands with Cora?) Give Joe my love.
Author's Response: Ok, I want you to knokw that even though my story may be absolutely, completely totally fantastic, SO ARE YOU! I love my reviewers... Quidditch it is, then! it\'s off to the drawing board/battle field! teehee.
Author's Response: To all you Drew fangirls: Joe says hi. He would probably say something else, but I think he\'s scared of you.
Yet another wonderful chapter in a great story! Sadly, not as much Drew time... but you certainly made up for it! Why, oh why do you need to leave me hanging on the edge of my seat EVERY TIME? It's really not very nice, you know. Update quickly!
Author's Response: Oh, If Joe could read this... I know he's a computer geek, but he hasn't managed to hack into my reviews yet. Hey, the cliffies work! and that one wasn't that bad. I'll update as fast as I can, but it may take a while, as workloads are heavy at the moment. thanks for reviewing again!
This is the first story I've found that really has me wondering! I love Drew already, and I was laughing out loud when Olivia was looking everything up. My favorite line: “It’s the magic castle in the sky that everyone dreams about times a billion and then some.” Brilliant! Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: ha! Joe has more fans! when I tell him...*imagined conversation* Me: hey Joe, more people love you! Joe:*facepalm**end of imagined conversation* thanks for reading and reviewing!
Summary: "Cedric Diggory was murdered by Lord Voldemort."
Susan Bones remembers the times she spent with the boy she loved as Dumbledore gives his speech. An unrequited Susan/Cedric story.
wow. just... wow. You captured Susan perfectly, and I loved how you incorporated Dumbledore's speech into it. There's more I can say, but I can't because I need to go get a tissue to wipe my eyes. 10/10.
Summary: At Slughorn's Christmas party, Blaise Zabini's mind dwells on the cobwebs of his past. Can an unlikely accomplice cause Blaise to step outside his comfort zone and overcome his greatest foe: himself? This is in response to the quote challenge dealing with Walt Disney. Silly55Lady: A Proud Hufflepuff
what a great story! Hermione is in character, which I was suprised about- when you put Hermione and being reasonably friendly to a Slytherin together, the two don't tend to come out very well. But Blaise was also done very nicely, and Cormac McClaggen.... your best character, if I do say so myself. He was DEFINETELY perfect. great job!
Author's Response: I hate McClaggen and would have liked to confond him myself. It\'s ironic that his character turned out so well. I guess I can write a jerk. ;)
Summary: No one knew, and no one guessed, what little Peter kept suppressed.
A wildly AU one-shot exploring the scenario: what if Peter had never turned traitor? (Mild HBP spoilers.)
Wow. Just- wow. This is one of the most powerful pieces I've ever read. It was like... like poetry written in prose. Bravo.
Summary: Everyone knows the story after that Halloween night that Harry Potter became an orphan... but what about before? James Potter and Lily Evans are two young people with an extroadinary story of bravery, friendship, and love. Join them throughout their seven years at Hogwarts and see how the past affects the future.
I'm really loving this story so far! It's interesting to see how Peter is being overshadowed by his friends... and I'm really, really glad that you're not leaving him out of your story. So many authors do that, but you incorporated him, and that's awesome. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: That\'s probably my biggest pet peeve about fan fics, is when they totally forget that Peter is a marauder! He\'s such an important character, I\'m glad you think I\'m doing a good job with him!
Summary: What happens when Dumbledore has his latest "brilliant" idea, to start an advice column, and call it 'Dear Dumby'? Letters from some of our favourite Hogwarts students, some of our not so favourite Hogwarts students, some not even Hogwarts students at all, and, of course, lots of madness!
Pre-HBP for obvious reasons!
Nominee for the Best Humour Award in the Quicksilver Quill Awards! Many thanks to all who voted for it!
a great story- I can't wait to see Parvati and Ron snogging to make Dean jealous! At least, that's my interpretation. But can't wait for the next chapter!
P.S. Maybe Rita Skeeter could write a letter?
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, that will be...interesting!...though it's not Dean's reaction that I'd be as interested in...!! Next chapter should be submitted fairly soon! Hmm...yeah, it would be quite good to have Rita write in!! That's a really good idea, thanks! I'll try to fit it in somewhere! Thanks for reviewing!!
Summary: Always he had been there. To cry, and to bear witness. He survived them all. Two centuries after the final battle, a solitary figure searches for solace in all that remains of his past; the shattered memories of yesteryears.
oh, wow. What a fantastic idea! Dobby is characterized perfectly. I had tears when Winky was telling Dobby Dumbledore had died... I had never even thought about his reaction before. Excellent, excellent story.
Summary: ONE SHOT. Luna Lovegood finally realises the answer to a problem that has puzzled her for years. A short songfic about love, loss and letting go. Written for the SQ Songfic challenge.
This was just... wow. I mean.... wow. I've never read a story like this. Its so hard to put Luna in a light where she's not just there for comic relief. In fact, I have only seen Jo herself do it before. But you've managed to transform a comical character into a real person with feelings and most importantly, pain. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
Summary: Comedy one shot about Hermione and her penchants for the rights of others.
one word basically sums this up- lol. But since it would be horribly mean of me to leave such a small review, I will continue to elaborate to the point of babbling! It took me a minute to get the joke with the latrine assoc., but as soon as I realized the consequences of that particular strike I laughed out loud. great work!
Author's Response: Several people told me I should have stopped the story at that point because of that joke, but I like the Weasley ending better. Thanks for leaving longer feedback.
Summary: It's nearly six months after the war, and when Molly Weasley reads the days' newspaper, in it is an article that forces her to reminisce over the events of the war, the effects of it on her life and the lives of those close to her. Meanwhile, Ron has news of his own…
That. Was. So. Sad. I'm sitting there reading about Ron proposing to Hermione, thinking things like, "Oh, isn't that sweet? It's about time they were married, Dumbledore would be so happy there's a little love in the world, Molly must be so happy to have her son so happy," and then, BOOM! Headline! And I had tears in my eyes, I really did. That was so, so sad. And it was a perfect place to end as well.
The only thing I have is that I don't really understand WHY Molly was crying over Lucius. It was like, okay, he's gone, this is bad why...? Your explanation was hard to understand.
But I love the way Ron was acting. It was great. But which brothers died?
Author's Response: Aw, sorry I shocked you!! I know, it all would have been so nice!! Well, Molly was crying because she'd read the whole article, so she knew from the beginning that Hermione was dead, which is why she was especially choked up when Ron came home with his news. So if Lucius hadn’t killed Hermione, he wouldn’t have been behind bars, which is a part of why she was upset, but also because she could associate with what Lucius was going through, and knew that no-one deserved to go through that, not even him. I'm sorry, I probably should have explained that a bit better! But I'm glad you thought I kept Ron in character! It's up to you who you think died, I wanted to keep this quite open-ended really! But in my mind, I know which two were killed, as I expect you do too! Thanks for your wonderful review!!
Summary: This story is about the Marauders' first year, how they met, what they did to become so close friends.
In the first chapter we meet Sirius and James on the Hogwarts Express and we can get a glimpse of Remus and Peter. Bella makes an appearance too.
Many thanks to Nikki, my Beta!
I LOVED how you wrote Bella- very evil. But as the previous review said, James seemed OOC. Not, for me, because he was nervous. That's only to be expected. But he seemed overly formal. Calling his dad 'Father' didn't scream 'I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good' to me. The same with Sirius- they sounded a bit like they were reading a script.
Other than that, though, I sincerely enjoyed the chapter. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: I imagine James acting formal to his father, I think he is very respectful towards him. I imagine James's parents a bit older than usual and so they tend demand respect. I think he loves them, but also respects them deeply. Sirius's being formal is completely my fault. He will get better though, I hope. Thanks for the review.
Summary: Christmas is fast approaching, and Molly Weasley has never been busier. Ginny is two, Ron is three, the twins are five, Percy is seven, Charlie just turned eleven and Bill turned thirteen in November, so there is no wonder poor Molly has her hands full.
To top it all off, as Christmas approaches so does the gathering Molly and Arthur are to host on Christmas day: the first ever family reunion since the first war, which ended only a couple of years ago, for either the Prewetts or the Weasleys… This Christmas is going to take a miracle to get through...
AND hearty thanks to HermyRox12 for her QsQ nimination. The twins send a toast-by-owl from the Christmas party.
absolutely fantastic! It certainly had me giggling. Keep up the great work, and please- update soon!
Author's Response: *Defeat*
Okay, okay. Next chapter needs some serious work, apparently (hiss), but it will appear on here as soon as possible! Though definitely /after/ my Borgin and Burke\'s one-shot challenge entry *excitement*.
Summary: Merope Gaunt has what seems like a flawless plan to get Tom Riddle to love her. She has everything worked out to the very last drop of Amortentia in his glass each morning. Watch as a country called Romania and a celebration of love takes it's effect on this 'perfect love.'
Written as a Term Challenge: Holidays Abroad submission for Slytherin.
very nice! I really liked how you characterized both Merope and Tom, but especially Merope. Looking forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks, I worked hard on the characterization. Also, the next chapter is in the queue!
The Acromantula and its Ability to Consume the Most Repulsive Beasts on This Earth by Mind_Over_Matter
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 23]
Summary: Intelligent, attractive, witty and classy first year, Draco Malfoy, has found himself stuck with the task of writing an essay for an incompetent, and frankly stupid teacher, Professor Quirrel.
this fic can basically be described in one word. However, in the nature of a good review, and considering I'm stalling at the moment so I won't have to leave my bedroom and think about boring things such as how many socks to pack for a trip, I plan to draw this out as long as possible before giving you that one word. This story had me giggling in my seat, a rare feat for me. The phrases used to describe Draco were hilarious- "poor, innocent kid like himself." "intelligent, good looking, talented and humble Draco Malfoy." hee-hee. Although- actually, never mind, there's nothing you can do to make this fic better. I suppose its time I came out and told you that one word to describe my reaction to your fic. Drumroll please- LOL.
Author's Response: LOL is one word? Who knew? Thanks heaps for this review - nothing you could have said would have been more encouraging.
Summary: Lemon Drops is a short story about a young muggle woman working at Biddle's Sweetshop in Little Whinging. Late one night, on the very day that Harry Potter became "the boy who lived," she recieves a strange customer...
Reviews are welcomed and valued!!
This story is fantastic! It's touching and funny, and just plain awesome! Dumbledore had a bit of a Santa Claus quality to him- the twinkle in the eye, and then he's gone on to make somebody else's life better. Brilliant! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Dumbledore makes everything better!
Summary: A SPEWish Covert Cupid for TheVanishingAct. Happy Valentine's Day, Professor Pat!
It's Seventh Year, and the new Headmaster has decreed that students must take some sort of course to fulfill the new Art Requirement. Our favourite characters have decided to take Drama. What kind of hilarity will ensue when the night of the first dress rehearsal arrives? Expect Hagrid as a Tree, Ron as Godric Gryffindor and Malfoy as the Amazing "Dancing" Ferret.
Ron/Luna, Prof. Pat/Hermione, Blaise/Himself
DRAMA GEEKS UNITE! Would you like to know how absolutly wonderful this is? It's SO good that until I got to Slytherin singing 'Be Prepared', I thought you had written the songs yourself. Which means that a) I need to see more musicals and b) you're an absolutely fabulous writer who should definetely write part two! 10/10
