Bio:
Hi everyone. I used to be on mugglenet all the time about four years ago, when I was fourteen, and all my fics are from then. On a whim I decided to drop by for nostalgia's sake, so... hello. :)
I'm now in my first year of an English major in university, and I credit my love of editing to this site, so really I'd just like to say thank you to everyone who contributed to that.

Love and happiness to the HP fandom.

Super Girl by Seren
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 15]

Wow. This is very well-written, and very powerful. I really felt Hermione's pain. Good job!

 

Summary: (Hi, I wrote this when I was 16, please keep that in mind. I'm keeping it up because people still like it.)

So, you want to be an evil villain? In this handbook that a certain Hogwarts student purchases, all of the rules, techniques, and frequently asked questions about evil villainy are explained. Do you have what it takes? And what will happen to the student who purchases the book? Another story from the strange, twisted, and slightly unfortunate Hermione's Revenge.

This is one of the funniest stories I have ever read, fanfiction or not. I love the original idea, and using Neville to read the book is a stroke of genius. He's the most un-evil character in the books, so imagining him becoming evil is on its own hilarious. Also, I keep getting images of Dr. Evil from Austen Powers when reading this fic (hahaha). The advice given in this fic is actually very good, but at the same time very funny.
This review is part of the Humour Fic class I'm taking on the Beta Boards, so I'm supposed to identify the different types of humour in your fic. I can identify:
1. Insults, to some degree
2. Visual Gags
3. Parody (of the ...For Dummies books)

Also, Neville cackling evilly is a very funny picture (hence visual gags). I can see Voldemort using this self-help book, as it contains a lot of the tactics Voldemort uses. I have read some of your other fics, and they are downright hilarious. Amazing, good job! You made me laugh.

Alright, I'm finally reviewing. I'm admitting I'm addicted to this fic.

Hello, my name is jtc, and I've been addicted for... *counts* six months. Hehe. Anyway, this chapter was so amazing, while I was reading I just thought, OMG, OMG. I love the way Lucius and Siobhan converse, it's so entertaining to read and you do it so well. My favourite line in this chapter has to be:

“Never speak about yourself in such a manner,” he commanded fiercely, as though she had insulted something in his possession.

Because Siobhan is insulting Lucius, but he takes no notice and only registers than she's insulting herself and get angry at that. ( I think Lucius is in loooooove.) I also love that it says, 'something in his possesion' and that Siobhan picks up on that.

I was waiting for her to finally find out that he was a Death Eater, and the way you did it was so perfect, with the contrast and all that. The last paragraph is also amazing - I love the line where you mention his sins. I thought of the title.

Wonderful. *claps*

Hahaha. I'm reading Shakespeare in school now so I'm finding this extremely funny. I love Remus's monologue at the end. Just one thing: I believe Shakespeare wrote in iambic pentameter. *raises eyebrow* Yes, I know, I shouldn't be correcting a humour fic my humour professor wrote. Oh my, I must be scurrying off...
Overall, very very funny. I can see why you are the humour professor, not that I didn't already.
Oh my, I'm rambling. Good job!

Author's Response: You noticed *lol* -- Figured it\'ll be no fun if I follow the strict rules -- so decided to ignore everything as long as I still project the familiar - sort of Shakespearean feel - it\'ll be a good enough parody. Throwing in couplets, the olden language, and of course soliloquys is enough to do this. ^_^

*grin* familiarity without the extra work and headache.

This is awesome. It is so funny, I was laughing in my seat. My favourite line is, though simple and short,
“Wow,” said Hairy, spontaneously turning into an otter,"

It's so random, and it's so witty and funny and true. It's a great parody.

"Jon and Herminoinoinoienoin were rushing towards him, throwing random fruit in his general direction."

That is also hilarious.
Continue writing humour! You write extremely funny stories. :)

 

Not Going to Happen, Chica by Eilime
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 172]

Summary:

One shot fanfiction

This
fanfiction
is the traditional
Draco/Hermione romance
story. All the basics (Head Boy
and Girl, shared common rooms, suddenly
and quite unexpectedly they're highly attracted to
each other etc. etc.), but how likely is this stuff anyway?
Realistic? Each their own mind. But read the fic
and tell me if you too want to see
Draco/Hermione fanfics with
more to the plot than
the basics.

Everyone is slightly - well, maybe very - OOC in this fic. You have been warned ;)

1st story in a series of Hermione/Draco one-shots (Check out my author page for more information)

Oh, my gosh. This is hilarious. You know what's really funny - I have a cliche fic too and the Hermione/Draco part is almost exactly the same as this fic, but I had never read this one before. It shows how stereotypical and cliched fics can really be.

Anyway, this is my favourite line and it made me laugh so hard -

I've been on the receiving end of it since I was just a wee lad!

Ah, wee lad! That is just so funny and I don't know why.

Hilarious fic.


Author's Response: Thank you :) Yeah, having read an interminable amount of this kind of Hr/D fics, I decided to write this story. Lol, \"wee lad\". Thanks again just_the_contrary!

Dear Dumby by Oppungo
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 715]

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!

Oppungo, this stuff is HILARIOUS. I love the letters especially, the writers thinking they're being so discreet when really it's screamingly obvious who is writing it. One of my favourites is, 'who has to remain nameless, for legal reasons and because, well, he‘s not supposed to be named)'
That just made me laugh out loud. This idea is amazing and outright funny. Great job and I really enjoyed reading this!

Author's Response: Thank you just the contrary! Yes, subtlety isn\'t bery big at Hogwarts really...! I\'ve had great fun writing this, so I\'m really pleased you\'re enjoying it too! (Harry\'s - the first one I thought of! - was particularly fun to write!) Thanks for reviewing!

This story is very funny, I love the letters. I especially love the one from Voldemort (I think that's who it's from lol). Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Thank you, I\'ll try to keep it up! Well, I can\'t say for sure (confidentuality and all that!), but I have a funny feeling you might be right...!

 

Summary: A poem about a character seeing something very unexpected within themself. Not a long poem, but hopefully worth the read. It does not really pertain to one character alone, but if you can guess which one I had in mind I will certainly offer you my congratulations!

Woahhhh. This is amazing! This is one of the best poems I've read on MNFF. I'm so happy I discovered this. What really strikes me is two things, the first being the structure. I love how the first and fourth lines are the same but reversed, when I first noticed that I was like, "That is incredibly smart! I love it!" The second is the last two lines. They gave me chills and literally left me staring at the page. It is wonderful. I'm wondering who it is... Malfoy?

This is hilarious. I read the first act a while ago and wondered if it was an abandoned fic. Then I saw Act Two in the 'recent' sidebar and read it. It's just as funny as the first chapter. I love the little 'author' inserts and the random things like 'I forgot to straighten my hair! It was horrific!' Very humourous. *claps*

Oh wow. This really struck a chord with me - it's amazing. I love the structure, or un-structure, but it's so amazing. Really, I love how it keeps getting so that there's hardly any time left. It's so realistic and that's quite magnificent for a poem to do. Wow - keep writing poems! You're great at it.

 

Sliding Drawers by Loup_garou
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 48]

Summary: It is argued that the most minuscule of occurrences can shape the course of history irrevocably. Butterflies flapping their wings overzealously, missing a train/forcing open the sliding doors of a train and catching it/getting your finger stuck in the sliding doors of a train as you attempt to force them open and having to run alongside it for the duration of the journey as an alternative to having it ripped off…and other such minutiae. Thus it was that, on a cold, wet night seventeen years ago, in a room above the bar at the Hog’s Head Inn, that Severus Snape made his (skid)mark. The History of the Potterverse is now at stake, and it remains for Lily Potter (with a little help from Lupin) to sort it all out. BE YE WARNED - this story contains pants. Underpants. (This story is intended as a bit of light-hearted fun and should be read as such, even if it is rather OOC!) Final chapter is up! Gather round, my children, and witness the astonishing finale!

Hi, Jeff...
Well, I picked this poem for my class. I had to. It's for studying couplets, because you put them so wonderfully into the poem. Plus, you are much too underlooked, so I'm forcing my students into loving your work as much as I do. :) So far, they like your poems. Hehe.
Love it.

Author's Response: Yes, cram it nice and deep down their throats. There will be to come shortly!
