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: Andromeda Black was one of the few Black’s who stood up for what was right. This story
follows Andromeda through her seven years at Hogwarts, as she figures out that family values aren’t always the right ones, makes true friends, and, eventually, severs herself from her family forever.
lol- a funny chapter, I must say. I always wondered if Binns actuall realized if he was dead... 'students wishing to accompany Professor Binns to his funeral may do so' was my favorite line, though. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks for the feedback. I\'m not great with humor so I\'m glad the chapter (and that line, lol) turned out at least mildly funny:)
wow, I'm really liking this story! I've only found one Andromeda story so far, and its great I can read about her in younger years- I especially like Letty. And the name is fun to say. Let-e. =) Dumbledore was brilliantly characterized- many writers eliminate him altogether because he's rather hard to do right (I'll admit I'm guilty of this) but you made Dumbledore sound like Dumbledore. Update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks, Tink! I agree, Letty is fun to say. Partly why I gave her the name actually... Thanks for the compliement about Dumbledore and for the review:)
Summary: Pygmy puffs, both sides of Fred's buttocks and music. You would think that there were more important things in Harry's life.
Be amazed as Ron, Hermione and, of course, Harry attempt to write Harry's life story with a musical touch.
Warning: Involves out of tune Neville in later chapters. Disregards Deathly Hallows.
The next few chapters are now in the process of being written as I have a sudden breakthrough for a storyline. Thank you for your patience.
very nice! I'm eager to see what the black one does... knowing fred and george, I'm almost afraid to find out. Great job!
Author's Response: Lol...be very afraid :)
Summary: Who is the Grey Lady of Ravenclaw house? What caused her to remain among the living after her death?
This was a great story- the idea seemed very reminiscent of Jane Austen's works. An excellent read!
Author's Response: Wow! Thanks for the review and the comparison to Jane Austen was very flattering! Glad you enjoyed it!
Summary: Daily Prophet One-Shot Challenge, by coppercurls of Hufflepuff house.
The cast of Harry Potter has consented to allieviate the anxiety of their fans by answering some of the unresolved issues in their live, read more inside!
lol! Somehow you managed to stay well-characterized and still make this funny, something that I for one find extremely hard to do. This definetely left me grinning.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! My main goal is to stay IC so it\'s always good to know I\'ve got it right!
Summary: When you marry someone, you marry their family too. This is something that Fleur Delacour and Bill Weasley didn't consider. The two families couldn't be more different, especially the women. The day before the wedding, Fred and George came up with a plan to make the women stop arguing amongst each other. That was, of course, if they didn’t kill each other first.
Runner up for Challenge #1 of the Spring Challenge
wow- great story! I loved the added twist of Louise not loving her husband... it made me do a double take. Good luck with the contest!
Author's Response: Thanks! but the problem with Louise is that she does love her husband, the problem is that she\'s not \"in\" love with him. Thanks for the review!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
ha! This was absolutely fantastic! *giggles* Random Death Eater Number Four... and I love Voldemort's happiness over Dumbledore being no more... and the Hermione-spirit. Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Yes I do like Random Death Eater Number Four myself.
wow! I really enjoyed the alliteration and the flow of the words- 'muddy mud puddle' made me smile every time I read it. Great job!
Author's Response: I\'m glad the flow turned out - and that the first lines didn\'t get too repetative - this was a concern. Thanks heaps for reviewing!
P.S. I love your username!
Summary: Professor Granger deals with a pair of students who have inherited a knack for trouble...
very nice! I was giggling the whole time. Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I am writing others but nothing publishable yet-reading these reviews has been giving me a kick in the bum to keep working on them. Thanks much- Daisy
Summary: Watch how James Potter's relationship with Lily Evans changes when he employs a little bit of maturity. Response from Moony of Ravenclaw to Poem Challenge #2: "Rebirth, the phoenix dies and is reborn again. Isn't it amazing how beauty can blossom from something that begins so ugly."
an excellent poem, if I do say so myself! (and I do, by the way.) It flows very nicely, and it made me giggle. =) Keep up the great work!
Summary: In another time, perhaps, they might not have fallen apart so. (Regulus, Sirius, solitude.)
First place in April's Poetry challenge.
Wow. This was one of the best poems I've ever read. It made me cry. So.... well, 'wow' basically sums this up.
Summary: I can’t wait any longer. If I wait, I won’t go. I have to go.
that was beautiful, it really was. Ron seemed like Ron, and Hermione seemed like Hermione, which is alot more than most fanfiction writers achieve- but you didn't stop there, you continued and made a great story! you really have a way with words.
Summary: A compilation of the most commonly used Harry Potter clichés in the fandom. Features Angsty!Harry, Sweet!Draco, Head Dorms, sudden romances in the forms of Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny and of course, Draco/Hermione, because what's a cliché without them?
The Marauders also make an appearance in this fic, including Lily/Lily's best friend/Lily's other best friend.
Warning: mention of hippopotamuses inside.
Chapter Five is up! The story is done. Also, thank you to everyone who nominated this neatly tied bundle of ridiculousness in the QQ awards, I really appreciate it!
oh dear.... this is too funny for its own good, I'm afraid. =) I love the sparklypoo theme song! I can just picture a cheerleading routine that would fit perfectly.... the only thing I'm a little iffy about is that making fun of the rest of your cliches (Draco and Hermione, Angst!Harry, ect.) is, well, cliched. I think I would have preferred it if you had stayed with the sparklypoo story.
But nonetheless, excellent work!
Author's Response: I was originally going to make it a Mary-Sue fic, but then I decided on this. Thank you! My next chapter is going to be on Mary-Sue American Exchange students, so maybe you\'ll like that better. Ta ta!
it's over? NO!!! That's so, so depressing. Well, at least you had another song! I think this might have been my favorite chapter, and it's because of one line. "Again?" Classic. Simply classic. Who would have thought that one word could make me crack up?
Author's Response: Don\'t be depressed! I am trying to think up an original Humour fic, I thought I did but then I realized it had already been done. *grumble* Anyway, I\'m glad you liked it! Thanks for all the comments about the songs. I had so much fun writing them (that\'s why I said that in the fic :) ). Thanks!
yay! You put in more sparklypoos! And another song. Twas my favorite part, you know. I also enjoyed their pink flag with the unicorns on it. I could seriously picture all these somber black robed students getting ready to duel each other when all of the sudden come a cheerleading squad in pink skirts and white sweaters.... classic.
and the beginning of the hermione/draco scene was very well written. I enjoyed it immensely- "he seemed to like them." lol.
Author's Response: Hahaha thank you for your great review! It really put a smile on my face... I\'m happy you liked the whole Sparklypoo/unicorn thing with the cheer. I figured the story needed another cheer lol. Thank you! :)
short, yes, but since it had a new Sparklypoo song I suppose I can forgive you. =) What a great twist with Voldy and Harry! Cliche it may be, but I've never seen it done before. Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Whoops. Yes, it\'s true, I\'ve never seen that Voldy and Harry twist done before but it was quite melodramatic and therefore in keeping with my fic. :) I\'m glad you liked the twist. I know you love the Sparklypoo songs! I was thinking whether to include one, and then I thought of your reviews and wrote one up. Thank you so much for your great reviews!
Summary: Neville Lonbottom struggles to finish his homework, but that is difficult. And it does not become any easier when Ron and Hermione arrive, bickering...
what an excellent story! I love the way you write dialogue between Ron and Hermione, and interject Neville in the middle to make it even more funny. I particularly enjoyed how Hermione managed to bring up house elves- not only is it canon, it's also a very witty way of making her seem funny but not OOC. Your writing rings true to some of the great satirists of the ages. The only thing I wasn't sure about was how Ron petted her head. Just like Hermione I was questioning it, but it doesn't seem like something he would do. Other than that, fantastic!
That was awesome! I was laughing the whole time. Poor Nevile... but why, I wonder- potatoes? 10/10
Author's Response: About the potatoes - I\'ve no idea why that\'s the only thing he could think of. It just came to me. Thank you very much for the 10!
Summary: Competing for the Quidditch Cup, Gryffindor and Slytherin go head to head. With the Weasley twins as commentators, the game is bound to be interesting. Rated such for slight language, but not much.
I enjoyed this story alot! My favorite line was, "“Stay in school, kids!” George said in a strong, reprimanding voice. “Well, we didn’t, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t!”" That really made me laugh. I can just picture him saying that. My only thing is that for me, McGonagall seemed a littled OOC at the beginning of the story. That's just my opinion- but with that same opinion I think she got more in character as the story progressed. It was great how the twins kept slipping in advertising- great story!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m glad you liked it. And thanks for your advice. I\'ll go back and read over it to make some changes so that she doesn\'t seem OOC.
Summary: Bored to death, Narcissa Black embarks on a mysterious adventure leading her deep into a maze where danger and peril await her. Braving one obstacle after another, she finally finds something, she never thought she'd see again.
Third place in the Gauntlet Challenge.
ooh, very nice! I really enjoyed how you characterized Narcissa- especially how her boggart was her name removed from her family tree. Narcissa, as we have seen in HBP, is very compassionate towards her family, so the boggart made sense. I only have some constructive criticism- there's one line that goes "robes shot out of her wand and bound two of them tightly. The fairies struggled and tried to undo the robes,", and I think you mean ropes instead of robes. The other thing is that in the third stanza of the first poem the rhyme scheme is a bit off- 'the thing with danger bought' might be too long a line. Other than that, though, I really enjoyed the story! Excellent job!
Author's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. I will definitely get rid of that \'robes\'/\'ropes\' mistake. As for the poem: I didn\'t write that at all. It was part of one of the prompts, so I can\'t change it.
