I'm not brave enough to post my own work. Maybe someday, but not today. Or tomorrow...So! I'll just grab my popcorn and orange soda and sit my bum smack dab in the middle of the peanut gallery, shall I? And if anybody wants my two cents, well, they're welcome to it.
Summary: Originally written for the SIYE summer challenge. Hermione invites Harry, Ron, and Ginny to her house to attend a Muggle carnival. What happens when four kids who have been forced to live under adult pressures are suddenly allowed to act like kids?
i'd forgotten how much i enjoy this story!
you're always a pleasure to read.
I wrote this for the, Short and Sweet Summer Fic Contest, on pnoenixsong.net. It took fifth place in the contest, and I am posting it here for people to read now.
The story is set in the summer after Harry's fifth year about a week before the return to school. The premise of the contest was to write a short, 3000 words or less, story that involved the sharing of a sweet of some sort between the characters in the story. The sweet could be Muggle or Magical. This is what I came up with.
i love smart fluff.
it's hard to find but so worth sorting through the excess.
it was lovely. thanks for the read.
Author's Response: Glad you liked it.
Summary: Ron is having dreams about Hermione who is having dreams about Harry who is dating Ginny causing an age-old love triangle.
Not extreme fluff but somewhat fluffy. One-shot, please read and review.
erhm, yeah. no. wait- hermione's dreaming about harry and tells ginny but is not interested in harry and says yes to ron.
Summary: The war is over, and Ginny is in desparate need of medical attention. But when Harry makes an Apparition mistake, they are stranded in an unknown location. While waiting for rescue, some unexpected feelings and fears are revealed...but can Ginny survive to sort them out?
ANOTHER SURPRISE!!- Sequel now in the works!
details struck me as odd- ginny being well enough for a heart-to-heart chat- mr. weasley unable to visit his hospitalised child because of work. and "the absence of fear" is taken out of context.
still. it was a good read. thanks.
Author's Response: Okay, not really sure what you mean about the heart-to-heart chat, but of course Arthur visited Ginny- he just happened to be at work for that particular visit. He was one of the only ones the hospital would allow to visit first.
Summary: Fifteen-year-old Harry Potter wakes up in his cupboard under the stairs at number four, Privet Drive with no memory of the past five years of his life. What happened to his memory? What do his strange dreams mean? And most importantly, how will he survive in a school for incurably criminal boys?
This is primarily a mystery, with a bit of shippiness thrown in here and there. Of course, if I told you WHO is involved in the shippiness, that would ruin part of the mystery, wouldn’t it?
This story takes place immediately after OotP (and thus disregards HBP).
this is a great read. i don't think i left reviews my first go round, i was so anxious to get to the next chapter.
i'm correcting the oversite.
thanks for the read.
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you enjoyed it enough to want to read it again. That really means a lot.
sorry! i got so caught up- when i went to review i was already on chapter five. does that make sense?
your story is so seamless, runs so smoothly.
still, i'll try to be more attentive.
Author's Response: Don\'t worry; I\'ll take that as a compliment. I\'m glad you feel that my story flows so well.
on a side note- i am sorry but snowy is an incredibly trite name for a white pet. right up there with socks the cat and spot the dog.
Author's Response: I totally agree. Sadly, at this point Harry has very little to go on when naming his owl. After all, he can\'t exactly look in his History of Magic text this time, can he?
ah ha! caught myself.
i like tyler. what happened to the 'we' that never had enough to eat and led him to stealing?
and hey! i happen to like adam sandler.
Author's Response: Tyler\'s parents died a few years back - his mother first, and then his dad if memory serves. And Adam Sandler has his moments -- I wouldn\'t know about the \"Severe Beating\" skits if I completely despised the guy, now would I? ;-)
sigh, i almost forgot again.
it's interesting to see harry in a setting so different from the magical world or the dursleys- a slight improvement, really from his relatives. well, tyler's an improvement anyway.
thanks for the read.
Author's Response: Thanks; glad it\'s unique.
freakin' a, i did it again! i had to come back to this chapter to review. ah well.
i like that harry's amnesia is a real problem. you didn't cop out with some lame excuse for his memory to come back- a lot of times writers gets so excited they'll rush events. but your story has an easy pace that doesn't drag or skip crucial moments to get to 'the good stuff.'
thanks for the read.
Author's Response: Thank you! It\'s really hard not to just skip to \'the good stuff,\' so I\'m glad to hear that I was able to pull it off here.
good read, thanks.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing.
and the fun begins.
it's such a GOOD story! do you know how hard it is to find interesting plot in a well written hand? COMPLETE, no less?
sorry. now i'm ranting. anyway, thanks for the read.
Author's Response: Thank you! I actually do know how hard it is. I\'ve read pretty much all the completed stories on a couple of HP fanfiction sites, and I have a really hard time finding anything interesting anymore. That\'s part of the reason I write so much; if I can\'t find an interesting story, I\'ll make my own! ;-)
thank GOD tyler doesn't develop a serious relationship with cho. how wierd would that be?
thanks for the read.
what was your interpretation of ginny's 'bright eyes?' i always think of her with light brown eyes but i suppose dark eyes can be bright too. (though it sounds like a bit of a contradiction)
Author's Response: Yeah, Tyler/Cho would be a little odd. About Ginny\'s eyes -- I\'ve always taken \'bright\' in this sense to mean that her eyes seem to have an inner light that makes them seem full of life. Have you ever met anyone like that? If you haven\'t, you should. ;-) So, not quite like Dumbledore\'s trademark twinkle, but something along those same lines.
hedwig could have led him to hogwarts. just a thought.
Author's Response: That\'s a good point, actually. I don\'t think it ever even crossed my mind. I guess I\'ll chalk this up to something Harry didn\'t think of because he was too distraught and frightened to really think straight.
i love his dreamgirl. it's very romantic. and i like the way their relationship develops. ginny's not intrusive or sure which is endearing.
why hasn't harry connected the tall gangly boy in his dream with ron?
Author's Response: Thanks. I really wanted to write something where they didn\'t get together right away, but the reasons for putting it off were real, not silly teen angst that could be resolved with one short conversation. I\'m pretty sure Harry had already decided that the gangly boy in his dream was Ron, although I might not have specifically said so. Thanks for reviewing!
i like dumbly-dorre. always have, imperfections et all.
Author's Response: Me too. It gets really tiresome reading stories that portray him as a devious manipulator who only cares about Harry as a weapon. Makes me wonder if some authors are taking lessons from Rita Skeeter... ;-)
i haven't anything positive to say about petunia dursley. we all make choices in life and despite our motives, being a 'good' person is a matter of choosing what we know is right. petunia didn't.
sorry. i didn't mean to preach.
Author's Response: No offense taken; I couldn\'t agree more. I think Petunia is a really tragic character, because she could have been so much more, yet she chose not to be.
in reality i know your chapters are long but they seem to zoom by. thanks for the read. it's been lots of fun.
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I\'m really glad you enjoyed the story again this time around.
Summary: Sequel to A Stolen Past. Please read that story first, as this one really won’t make sense if you don’t.
Harry Potter has rejoined the Wizarding world after a year-long absence, but still has no memory of his time at Hogwarts. Will he ever get his memory back? Will he be able to pass his classes without it? And most importantly, will he ever be able to defeat Lord Voldemort? Read on as the last of the mysteries introduced in A Stolen Past are finally revealed.
This is a story of friendship and mystery, with a healthy dose of H/G thrown in for good measure.
i hate it when the hp characters are taken to extremes in fanfiction. manipulative!dumbledore and swotty!hermione grind on my nerves to no end. so i was glad that you haven't ignored her positive chatacteristics in favor of the negative.
you're a good writer.
thanks for the read.
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I really do try to avoid focusing on any one characteristic of the characters, so it\'s very gratifying to know that you think I succeeded. Thanks for reviewing.
ginny knows how to break into the broomshed without harry's help.
Author's Response: Yes, she does. In this case, though, there are people sitting in plain view of the broom shed through the front windows. Ginny\'s not worried about being able to get into the broom shed; she\'s worried about being able to do it without being seen. Thanks for reviewing.
