Hmm...what do YOU want to know?
I'm pretty much a Malfoy fanatic. I got started in fan fic when my lil' sister started writing. That's how I found this site, actually.
Some things about me:
-spicy crunch salmon roll is my favorite food in the world.
-I could eat soybeans everyday for the rest of my life.
-I'm an up and coming opera star (yeah, in my dreams) but, I love to sing regardless, so I deserve my dreams! :p
-I have read Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle 19 times.
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, and the like, drop me a note.
Then we can talk. :p Catch ya'lls later.
Wow, this is the first time I've had a chance to read one of your stories. This one has a good start. Your description is fabulous...I feel like i'm there...the maggot thing is so nasty.
The only thing I caught is right here:
Thousands and thousands of times I walk in a slow circle of my cell; so much so that there is a nearly perfect circular trial worn into the dirt floor. Did you mean trail? (Nothing important, just a small correction).
Anyway, any story with Lucius and I'm hooked. Good job.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, Linkster. I'm glad you enjoyed the first chapter. Yes, that should have been trail instead of trial. Thanks for catching that. I will go make a correction right away. Thanks for the review.
Beautiful beginning...it grabs you and won't let go. And Ginny was so funny...for a completely AU fic, this start is good.
FYI, usually, the name Death Eater is capitalized, just in case you want to change that. But other than that, this is fabulous. Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I think once the next chapter is up there will be more of a response. Thanks for the pointer, I'll make sure from now on to keep DE capitalized. Thank you so much for reading! (and keep writing your story, it's a favorite!)
Wow, this is an interesting way of writing the "amnesia" fic, as I like to call it. Poor Hermione...and poor Draco. I feel bad for him...you described his emotions and the situation quite well...good job on your research! The only thing that I caught...was this: "side of the rode"....is that "road"? Anyway, great job as always. :)
This was a good start, in my opinion. I like how you portrayed Lucius. Sometimes people write him too nice. There are some places in your writing, where your punctuation and quotations are mixed up. No biggie, but just thought I'd mention it. I'm curious to see how you develop the romance between Draco and Hermione. Although it's okay the way it is, I am curious to know if you will give us any backround to how Draco ended up falling for Hermione. I'm curious to see where this is going to go. Good job.
Wow, how well written! I love Draco fics, and this one proved to be very good. I love how you potrayed him as awful and sympathetic at the same time. Even after the horrors he commited, I feel sorry for him. The portryalal of Lucius watching his only son in pain was also quite alarming. Good job, I really enjoyed this.
Author's Response: Thanks! This is how I picture Draco...Act first, think later, at least in this circumstance. I really do feel sorry for his character, expecially after book 6. He's walked so long in his father's shadow that he has to live up to it in the only way he knows. As for Lucius...He's been in the Death Eaters' circle for so long that I feel sure that he'd be able to shut off his feelings - even for his only son. Draco is really a person to be pitied.
Hmm..I hope I don't have to read the rest of your first one to get the gist of this story...I had to read when I heard that Draco was in it, he he. Anyway, what a gripping first chapter that was! Very well written...I can't wait to see what Maeve is going to say to her husband when she does finally see him. And I like that she refuses to believe what everyone has told her, that Severus is guilty of killing Dumbledore. I hope that she remains supportive of him throughout his ordeal. I love it how you've managed to create your world along side what is happening in JKR's world. And I'm looking forward to reading more!
Author's Response: Hmmm... I don't think you have to read the first one but there are things in it that will play out in this fic. If you have any questions just ask and I'll try and fill you in as best I can. Draco will play a bigger part in this than he did in the last fic. I had Harry grow up a lot in DoL but this is Draco's turn to mature. Not that you'd know that from his petulant first appearence. I'm looking forward to getting to know the more adult/tormented Draco a little better! Thanks for reviewing and I hope you keep reading!
I'll review since you mention this is your first fanfic, and I assume you'd like some constructive comments to help you write better...anyhow...the story is in need of a beta reader that can catch little spelling mistakes, punctuation and quotation errors. It's not really a big deal, but after while, they become glaring (at least for me). Sometimes it's better to have someone else go over it after you've written it, as they can see things you might not, as you're used to reading your own writing.
So far, the plotline is promising, and I do wonder where you are taking this whole American student thing. I'm with the person who's already reviewed this and stated that usually exchange students, especially American ones, who KNOW Hermione and Draco, and are dating...well it's a bit much, don't you think? I'm witholding any comments however and waiting until I see where you're going with this. Not bad so far, and I'll check back in to read additional chapters. :)
Author's Response: Thank you..... i also wasnt so sure bout da exchange students to but i was in real need for somepeople like that so i sorta had t ostik wif dat idea...thank for your adivice and your coments
Wow, Seren you do well with the description of hoplessness of this fic. Poor Hermione, she seems to border insanity, and her struggle to determine what she is to do next was so sad. I was hoping that there was a theme of hope in this story and I wasn't dissapointed at the end either. I really wonder if Hermione would be asking herself the quuestion you posed-does she no longer have a purpose in life if Lord Voldemort is defeated. I think she would still have to be a friend to Harry and Ron after all is said and done. I don't find her to be the type of person who would wallow in hopelessness though. She would just keep moving on, and you did portray that at the end. I absolutely thought this was great, and so I'm just going to leave you with the above random comments. :)
This piece is a seventh year, One-shot concerning Hermione and Draco that will either puzzle you, or intrigue you. I might warn you of slight AU, it depends on your take on this piece. We already know that this couple wouldn't exist in canon anyway, so please bare with. This was my very first HG/DM pairing and I did my best to avoid any...cliche's with this complex couple. And really, let my know your opinions. Criticism, flames, well hopefully not, or kind words are deeply appreciated.
For such a short piece this was incredibly well written. It screams for more. And it certainly was not at all cliche. The reason for their being together was realistic; the class project. And the lead up to the kiss was spot on. (In fact this was my favorite part...the way you described the moment they awoke). I could see this happening...it read like a romance novel, even though it was short. You have a way with description and I found myself wanting the chapter to continue. There was nothing akward, boring, or completely out of character in this ficlet. Good job, and I hope there is more to this sometime soon. :)
Author's Response: Wow, you are truly kind. Thank you very much and I'm glad you enjoyed this small piece. Luckily for you, the sequel to this has finally been validated. So, I hope you enjoy the second part to this as well.
This is so interesting! Very unlike most of the stories in this genre that I've read. I love how Draco is looking back on his life before he got involved with the Death Eaters. I must admit that the whole plane thing made me almost stop reading because I thought it was totally OOC but I'm glad I continued. I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: Well the prologue is sort of a sneak peak into the future... I like starting stories in the middle. Next it'll go back to the beginning and show HOW he got to that point (and it will also tell why he's interested in airplanes....). Thanks for reviewing!
Wow, I'm really into this chapter. This is a creative way to start a Hr/D story, and I'm going to keep reading just to find out what happens. I like your cliffhanger by the way. And I'm not certain of where you are heading with RAB, but I'm sure it'll be revealed later, so I'll wait. :) Good job so far.
Author's Response: HEY YOU ARE BACK!!!
Nice. Very good descriptions, and Draco seems spot on. I don't know, however if the Dark lord would have not been able to catch him. He is after all, more powerful than the rest of wizardkind, right? How was Draco able to get away so quickly? And what is Hermione doing there? You leave many questions to be answered. I like how this started. keep up the good work. :)
Author's Response: Hey TheGreatLinkster !!! I am so glad you like my story!! I think the Question you are asking about the Dark Lord not being able to catch him is answered in the same way that Voldemort was not able to kill Harry! You see, Draco loved his mother more than anything and seeing her die filled him with hate, I think the power of Draco's emotions overcame the ability of the Dark Lord...(who has no emotions in his 7-part ruined cursed soul) and he was able to apparate, which is why he got away quickly, and as for Hermione ...you'll just have to see! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! Love Lilly! XOXOXOXOX
I adore this fic. I do hope you plan on finishing it at some point. :(
This entire story is fabulous. I was going to individually review some of the chapters, but I thought I'd leave a quick note here first. ;) You have talent, especially for a long plot filled story...a lot of romance on this site moves too quickly for me, and I found myself reading for hours just to see where you were going to take this! Again, it would be a travesty if you did not continue this...brava.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you! I tried to make a slower-paced story that was still interesting and it seems like I've accomplished that goal! I'm glad you like it and you have nothing to fear: the story will definitely be completed. :) Thanks for the review!
Firstly, I adore this story. I read it all at one time, lol. Having said that, (and please don't throw tomatoes at me), I found this chapter to be so out of sorts with the rest of the story. As if you had pulled it from somewhere else and stuck it into the middle of what you've already written. I read it the first time, stopped and had to read it again, and I was still sitting there, going, 'huh?' You've done an amazing job progressing the feelings between Draco and Hermione, without cliche...that this wasn't really necessary. However, I do like the idea of Draco in a fedora. ;)
Author's Response: Ah, I would never throw tomatoes at you! You have a point and I totally respect your opinion. I guess I just needed a catalyst and couldn't help but fall back on the old Masquerade standby. Cliche, maybe. But it was very fun to write. I just hope it didn't throw you off the story! Thanks so much for the review!!
Good job. This was incredibly interesting. I say she chose the Lethifold. I mean, I cannot imagine Ginny unable to see the sight of Draco in Luna's arms. She's just not that insecure, and besides, at that point in the story, she knew that Draco loved her. However, the lethifold...well that's something I don't think too many people could handle; seeing their soulmate die.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and thanks for coming up with your own opinion! :D It's funny when people beg me to tell them or ask for a sequel, but it's quite heart-warming when they try to figure out what happened next.
People change. Sometimes for the worse.
This is the story of Hogwarts when Tom Riddle was there, and how the lure of the Dark Arts led him, and the people he dragged in his wake, to madness.
Brava. This was a great start! I'm curious where you'll take this, and your writing style has amazing flow.
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it. Thanks so much!
