Writing is so much more than words on paper. A well written story can draw you in and make you feel like you're actually there. You love the good guys, hate the bad guys, cry for their losses and smile for their triumphs. So that's my goal as a writer: To make you feel and think.
I love to write. Someday I want to get some of my non-HP works published. And like any author, I love getting reviews. I want to know what YOU think!!! No, I don't mind nitpicking and yes, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated. The wonderful world of Harry Potter belongs to JK Rowling, not me, sadly.
Which Harry Potter Marauder Are You?
Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
I have a few words to say to the mods: Nitwit, Oddment, Blubber, Tweak.
I've got my fingers crossed that the chapter is approved soon, I'm dying to read what happens next. You're an excellent writer, and you sure know how to keep a fan hanging :)
This is amazing, I can't wait to read the next chapter. You certainly have mastered the art of suspense. :)
On another note, not only is the story great, your writing style and descriptions are superb. Great stories come from great writers, and I think it applies here. :) Fantastic job, please update soon!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much... Those are really wonderful comments. =D
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
This is so amazing!!! I love this story, it is my absolute favorite that I've read so far. You are a very talented writer. The way you can capture the feelings between Hermione and Tom, your descriptions, how the plot line flows... All in all, fantastic job. :)

Summary: [WIP] Post-HBP. Eleven years after the end of the war, Hermione finds herself in a delicate situation when her only son leaves for Hogwarts and threatens her most guarded secret: that he’s not only a Granger, but also a Snape! SS/HG.
I never would have believed that someone could pull off a Snape/Hermione romance, but you have done it and done it with style. I love this story!!! Your characters are very realistic, your descriptions are beautiful, and you can analyze the character's feelings really well. I especially like the fatherly side coming out in Snape, it's amazing reading the changes that are coming over him. All in all, this is an amazing fic and I can't wait to read more. Please update soon, and if you could take the time out of your busy schedule to read one of my fics, I would really appreciate it. You're a brilliant writer!!!
Author's Response: And another innocent converted to SS/HG! Yay! *lol*
Now, seriously, I\'m glad you find the story realistic. I like analyzing the characters, and it seems that is shows. I love bringing out the father in Snape as I try to keep him as Snape-ish as possible.
As you see by my lateness in answer your review, I didn\'t have much time before for much of anything, but I\'ll try to read your fic one of these days.
Thanks for reading and reviewing, Witch Winter! :0)
Summary: James and Lily were known for giving their lives for their only son. That night, the night that Voldemort came and ended their lives, they talked about their possible future. And their love endured even unto death. ONE-SHOT based off of Garth Brook's song, If Tomorrow Never Comes.
This was such a good story! It ties in perfectly with the song. I like how you depicted their last moments. Very nicely done.
Author's Response: thanks. i wasn\'t sure if i added enough emotion, but i\'m glad you liked it.
Summary: Everyone has a past, and everyone's future depends on the choices we made in our past. But one boy has never been able to make his own choices. The choices he made were always in fear of others. In one night, he remembers and realizes.
This is a look behind the grey eyes of Draco Malfoy. It's a look into the memories and thoughts of the son of a Death Eater. It's the realization and the vented anger that may or may not change anything when the morning dawns.
Hi everyone, thanks so much for reviewing!!! It really helps. I've decided to do a follow-up story instead of adding chapters to this, this is ging to stay a one-shot. Please read "All Things Forbidden" when it's up!!! And thanks again, you guys are so inspiring, lol!
Summary: What it takes to kill the beast.
I liked this, great story! Your descriptions are very delicate and artistic, and the overall feel of the whole thing has a great mystical quality to it. Also, great analogy between the dragon and the girl's emotions. Keep up the good work!!! I hope to see more of your writing. :)
Author's Response: Another review? how did i miss it? I\'m so very glad you liked it. (always nice to know) I loved your story My Hero. (sorry, i\'m evil and i forgot to review. actually, i might not have had an account at that time) anyways, thanks for taking the time to review! Crazy Rat p.s. i\'m working on a new story and trying to get it submitted :-)
Author's Response: oops! I meant His Hero, not my hero
Summary: No one is born a killer. This is the story of the night Lucius Malfoy became one.
This is very interesting. I love stories that show another side of a character, it gives the story more dimension and believeability. Nicely done.
Author's Response: Thanks so much. I love to explore the lighter side of the dark characters. Glad you enjoyed it.
Summary: A fun tribute to our favorite Weasley twins and their famous shenanigans.
This is very nice piece of work. Kudos to you! :)
Author's Response: thanks much! ~GG
Summary: This is a short poem about how Harry in the fourth year asked Cho Chang to the Yule Ball but was rejected because she was dating Cedric Diggory. This poem expresses Harry's feelings.
I like it too, it's a good insight to Harry's thoughts.
Author's Response: Thanks! I appreciate your thoughts!
Summary: Ron practices what to say to Hermione in front of his mirror. How should he greet her, while letting her know he thinks of her as more than a friend?
Very nicely done, exactly what Ron would think! Poor guy, he can't ever get it right. Anyway, love your poem!
Summary: Ginny reflects on her broken relationship with Draco.
Nicely done :)
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: Nowhere. It might just be a metaphorical place. It might just be an excuse. Or it could be a state of mind. Harry has not only been isolated since Dumbledore's death, but Harry's also been void of feeling without guilt or fear. A letter and a certain girl just might get him somewhere.
This was good, it's justt he sort of thing Ginny would do. I'm looking forward to reading more from you.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I thought so too, so I just wrote what I thought would happen.
Summary: Romantic upheaval in Slytherin House on Valentine's Day. A missing scene from OotP.
Your writing is excellent, as always. I loved this, it was great!!! And happy belated Valentine's Day. :)
Author's Response: Hi, Witch Writer! Thanks so much for reading this story and also for the lovely complement. *hugs* - SIW
