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.)

Meet the - Children? by Winged Artemis

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Lily Evans is a cheeky, brainy, hopeless romantic seventeen-year-old Head Girl with a sour temper. James Potter is an arrogant, hilarious, prank-pulling seventeen-year-old Head Boy with an immature head on his shoulders. Lily loathes James and James loves Lily. Blahblahblah.

However, when a mysterious locket and a very wacked Headmaster inform the two of them that their son is in grave danger, James, Lily, and of course, Sirius, are magically transported to the future to meet James and Lily's son and the state that the magical world is in.

A twist of mystery, fun, romance and some Sirius humor! And with a wee bit of J/L, H/G, and R/Hr!

WARNING: Tree climbing Dumbledores, valuable pieces of jewelry, and an ecess of sugar are contained inside - oh, and HBP is disregarded.

very nice chapter! I particularly enjoyed the comment about Remus's 'time of month'- very funny! Lily's reaction to the Dursley's was also classic- 'contorted in horror' was a great way to describe it, and I could picture it perfectly. sort of a twisted grimace... but anyways, moving on. And the tea party was exactly the sort of thing I could picture sirius and James doing because, well... they're James and Sirius. The only thing is I would have liked is a bit more emotion from Lily when she sees Harry, because its her son, and I think that I personally would be a bit teary eyed at the whole process. Or just digusted because the kid was with James. That's just my opinion, though. Other than that, it was a great chapter- I'm looking forward to seeing more!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I\'m glad you liked it. I\'ll keep the emotions thing in mind; all of the \"what happened to James, Lily, and Sirius?\" and the emotions, and all of that godo stuff is in the next chapter. Thanks again for your sweet review!

Sit Down Potter by Starmom

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: We love writing stories about our favorite characters in our favorite universe. But what do those characters DO when we're taking a break, suffering from writer's block or abandon a story? A 'behind the scenes' look with a lot of cliches.

I think 'lol' pretty much sums this up. =) I enjoyed it a lot! very funny.

Author's Response: Thank you very much!!

The Curtain Call by Amelia Bedelia

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: James and Lily spend their summers together producing plays, though neither are happy about the presence of the other. With James, as the set designer, and Lily, as the actress, tensions run high.
Reviewer: Just Tink Signed
Date: 12/05/06 Title: Chapter 1: Bennett Theater

ooh, a great first chapter! It's rare that young James is characterized well, I find, but you did it very nicely... I'll be watching for updates!

Author's Response: I\'m so excited that you liked James\' characterization! He\'s not the ideal James everyone imagines, but I loved writing him in that younger phase... I have some siblings that I can easily put into his place! :D Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia

An Autumn Night's Tale by stareyed_in_LA

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •

To the youngest Egan, Maisie, it was a forest filled with danger and death and it was called "The Deathly Hallows." One autumn night, Maisie comes to her sisters room for comfort when she is told a story about the origins of the Deathly Hallows.

wow! I'm glad I waited until I was finished with my own entry to read yours- it was so good, I probably would have taken some of the ideas without realizing it! I really enjoyed how you characterized Maisie- you have a gift with words! The prophecy was extraordinarily haunting- I could picture the battle in my head. One thing- at the end, it says, "Does mother and father know about this?" and I believe it should say "Do mother and father know about this?" Other than that, excellent job!

Myths of the Irish Otter by Nyruserra

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Why did it always seem to come back to Charlie?

Seamus Finnigan/Hermione Granger
Reviewer: Just Tink Signed
Date: 02/21/07 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

wow! Fluff with an actual plotline to keep it going, making this a great story for both its characterization AND its romance. This was really sweet- you didn't make Seamus all hearts and roses or anything, but stayed true to his character- and being irish, I liked all the little irish phrases you threw in there. Excellent work!

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m really glad you found Seamus to be in character and not cloyingly sweet. Wow! It\'s nice to hear from someone who would know that the Irish phrases I included sounded natureal and not contrived - thank you! :-)

Childhood's End by spiderwort

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Minerva McGonagall comes of age during turbulent times, marked by a horrific Muggle war and the cunning predations of a malevolent, long-lived warlock named Grindelwald. Her own life is marked by struggle: her mother's mysterious mental disturbance; her friends' troubles, which she feels bound to ameliorate; and the looming responsibilities she faces as sole heir to Connghaill Keep. This book, the first in a series, records her last carefree summer and her first year at Hogwarts. The series itself, titled "Before the Beginning", follows Minerva through her formative years,from 1936 through 1945, the end of both the Muggle war and Grindelwald's freedom, and the rise of a new Dark Lord.

The milieu, the protagonist and most of the characters belong to Jo Rowling. The plot is my own.

Thanks to my most excellent Scots, Brit-picking, and history-savvy beta, Ewan Munro. I owe him much more than thanks. Here's to you, Ewan! Most patient beta a girl ever had.

HOGWARTS! *hogwartshappydance* glad to be back... and I loved Minerva's housemates- Poppy is quite funny. But where's my Gig girl? Anyways, great chapter! ~Jerri

Author's Response: I may not have made it clear that Gig is older than Minerva. But she\'s going to be around a long time.

*sings* Raymie's got a crush... the story has definetely picked up pace. I loved Mandra Gora- she reminded me of Natasha in that old Rocky and Bullwinkle show, if you know what I mean. And I hope Kenny and Minerva become friends- they both love Quidditch, after all. ~Jerri

Author's Response: Yeah, Natasha--and Borees Badeenov! Loved them. Mme. Gora is actually modelled off the Dragon Lady in \"Terry and the Pirates\", an ancient comic strip. but there\'s definitely some Natasha in her.

poor Nick... rejected again. I'm really enjoying the story, though, and if it wasn't eleven at night I'd leave a better review. Suffice to say that it's awesome!

Author's Response: That\'s okay, I love hearing from you, Jerri.

Although I'm glad her Ma is coming home, I admit to being a little dissapointed that Minerva's leaving Hogwarts, since I've enjoyed those chapters immensely. Oh well... I still enjoyed this chapter. The emotions were very well done! ~Jerri

Author's Response: Thanks. She\'ll be going back soon enough. Gotta take care of this big plot thread with her Ma first though. And we\'ll stay with Min thru her seven years at the big H. (though she won\'t get a book for each one like Harry did.)

So Filch is related to Minerva??? Hmm... interesting. Aunt Donnie is a great characters- I love all the aunts, actually. Keep up the good work! ~Jerri

Author's Response: Filch? Just wait a while on that one. Love Donnie myself. She\'ll turn up again in an important role near the end.

Glad that Ma's back- the description of the Northern Lights was quite fascinating. I must admit, I'm anxious to get back to Hogwarts, but I look forward to the letters she'll be getting. ~Jerri

Author's Response: Thanks so much Jerri. Your reviews keep me sane. Letters--yes--there\'ll be whole chapters worth of those. I love to write letters from all the characters\' POVs

this review is to cover the last seven chapters... wow! The story is sucking me in again, which is fantastic. Gig is a favorite, of course, but I'll admit Petey's growing on me. I am anxious for her to get to Hogwarts, though... at points I skimmed a bit. Overall, though, great! ~Jerri

Author's Response: Hey, Girl, your patience is rewarded. Next chap \"Hogwarts\"!!!!!!

a good chapter, though a bit short. Was this Minerva becoming a cat?

Author's Response: Ooooh, don\'t make me say it. ; )

Reviewer: Just Tink Signed
Date: 02/20/07 Title: Chapter 2: A Letter and Memories

yay! A second chapter! My favorite part of this was definetely the fake letter- it really lightened up the heavy bits about the story, her ma- a very nicely written section, by the way. Keep up the great work!

Author's Response: I like that part too, J.T., because I wanted to show a little of Min\'s relationship to her father, but, you\'re right, it definitely lightens things.

Date: 04/30/07 Title: Chapter 8: Trapped!

Well, at least the chapters are coming fast, but STILL! CLIFFFHANGER much? Yeah, can't say anything to that. Loving Gig, of course, but I almost feel like you cut it off too soon, like I could be pulled into the story more if the chapter was longer. Other than that, though, great work!

Author's Response: I\'ll keep thatin mind, J.T. Sorry for the delay. We\'re having problems with our provider...

Date: 04/17/07 Title: Chapter 7: The Cavern

yay! another great chapter. Your characters are so realistic that I really felt that I was in the cave with them. I need to tell people about this story so you get more reviews... it's a travesty there are only a few of us who seem to know about it! Gig, of course, remains my favorite by far, but Minerva is really growing on me. Keep up the excellent work!

Author's Response: Thanks, J.T. I\'m working on getting the message out myself. Got to get on the forums a bit more. There are tons of Minerva fans out there, after all.

Date: 02/18/07 Title: Chapter 1: Quidditch

oh, wow! What an interesting start- the accents were a little hard to decipher, but it was worth it because of the story. The summary did a great job of hooking me, and the story was even better- I can't wait to read chapter two. Favorites!

Author's Response: Thanks, J.T. Sorry about the accents. There shouldn\'t be too much more of that. Had to make it authentic , you ken ;) (I had a real Scots beta--the excellent Ewan Munro.)

Reviewer: Just Tink Signed
Date: 02/26/07 Title: Chapter 3: Making Plans

another great chapter! I'm quickly developing a soft spot for Gig, and you were right, the accents, except for Goodie Gudgeon, whose lines I still have to say out loud, are getting easier to understand. On to the next chapter with anticipation!

Author's Response: Oh, wow--saying the lines out loud. I wonder, do you go in for acting? I did once , and used to read books aloud a lot, especially when the accent or personality was particularly intriguing. Gig is a sweetie, and as a storyteller with a fertile imagination, a good foil for Minerva who is a more prosaic, practical type.

Date: 09/04/07 Title: Chapter 21: More Lessons

oh, wow. What a chapter! So Ma is schizophrenic? Wow again... I didn't see that coming, although I certainly wondered what was wrong with her. Did she kill her father, then? A heavy chapter, but you did a good job keeping it from being too much with Goodie Gudgeon's humor. Can't wait to keep reading!

Author's Response: Schizo? it certainly looks that way, don\'t it? But just wait a bit. The whole story isn\'t told yet.
