Summary: This is a poem about the fears of Molly Weasley.
Yes, I liked this poem very much. Fear. It can paralyze you completely. It can galvanize you into frenzy. It is not nice. Not nice people like to use it. But no one likes to live in fear. No one.
Your poem conveyed all of that.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it.
Summary: A poem told by Ginny about things she wants to tell Harry after they break up.
One of your best. I loved it. This poem really come across as something Ginny would write. Bravo.
Author's Response: Thanks.
Summary: This is a poem that takes you through Hermione's years at Hogwart, telling you how she feels, and how she comes to feel more at home in the Wizarding world.
Your best poem hufflepuffgal! 10xBravo. You have captured Hermione's character (you are very, very good at doing that by the way) and drawn it out over the six years we all know and love. All the stanzas flowed from each other beautifully and show her journey towards maturity. The first three and last stanza are the best. Comparing them the reader can plainly make out the old, insecure Hermione and the brave, smart, caring Hermione that little girl has become. Wonderful!
Author's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review!!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
LOL! Did anyone ever tell you that you are, ummm, a bit random? Dorkily amusing fic Sarah. I really liked it. Aunt Marge was awesome, and Sucker takes the cake.
Summary: This poem takes place on the night on the Hogwarts Express in Harry's Third Year. It is told by Remus Lupin about how he feels when he first sees Harry, and about his fears for the boys safety.
Hmmm, I liked the poem over-all, but the parts didn't harmonize with each other. (I hope criticism is OK.) I did think the poem sounded remarkably how I would imagine Remus' thoughts. Nicely done.
Author's Response: Criticism is fine! I need all the help I can get! Thanks for the review!
Summary: "That boy’s a bad influence on you. You’re not to see him...." Molly Prewett and Arthur Weasley spend a lazy summer day together, a day that may very well be their last together. When the summer rain starts to fall, will their lives be changed forever?
Cute story! I was a bit surprised at first by Molly's character, and then I remembered! This woman is Ginny's mother! It all made perfect sense. After that I loved your character developement and flowing style. Beautiful story.
Summary: One-shot challenge- owls, written by the patient Hufflepuff, mugglegurl. We all know that Hedwig was attacked by Umbridge in OotP. Here's her tale of what happened. Somewhat funny, if I do say so myself.
Nice, but I felt like I was waiting for the punch line.
Author's Response: I\'m horrible at writing humor... Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: My name is Eregonian Miran Shinai Thundeir. Not that it would matter to you. I have spent six years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and am preparing for my final year. My final year of freedom with my magic, before my family forces me to renounce my gift. While I expect this year to be the same as all others, things rarely happen in the manner which I intend them to. I invite you to accompany me, into the Gryffindor seventh year boys' dormitory, 1975, for my final year in the arms of Mother Hogwarts. EDITED BY MOD - No more than 2 line breaks please.
I am riveted. This is such a gripping beginning. Please do not abandon this story. I want to know what is going to happen. Badly. This chapter was such a tantalizing cliff hanger.
Hope you don't mind a little cc... my friends tell me to move to Antarctica sometimes. I can't think why... where was I? Oh yes! Back to the cc... I would like the story/plot to clarify itself a bit more in the near future. It is bordering on too mysterious. There can be too much of a good thing. It was very relieving to have Paravel clarified somewhat, and Eregonian's status there. As a reader I would like to have things explained a bit more, otherwise I foresee myself (and anyone equally or less intelligent) getting terribly confused.
Now for some (wild) guess work. The gold wrist band is obviously important. Honestly when I saw the title of this chapter-- Gold Bands and Striped Geraniums-- I thought it might have something to do with a wedding (the whole gold bands part that is, not the Striped geraniums.) When I reached the end I began to wonder if the special event Eregonian was called home for was his brother's marriage. Hot or Cold, maybe lukewarm? It would also hazard a guess that Shanis and Progonna are dead, and that their deaths are somehow tied to He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. The chameleon-charmed rope part has me stumped... err, Eregonian is going crackerdog? (bonus author points if you know the reference)
I'm dying to know what is really bugging the hero, especially since I'm fairly sure my guesses are about twenty light-years off target. Please write more. I've heard authors-who-don't-update-their-stories-frequently hunting is banned in most parts of the world, but rules where made to be broken, right? Consider yourself warned.
Loving your story and your style! 9/10.
Author's Response: To be honest, you are not that far off from where I intend to go. I promise an explanation and more clarity in the next chapter.
Summary: Ginny reflects on Harry
I liked you poem. I was wondering if you had time to explain the last stanza a little bit. When you say the power they have is not love you took me by surprise, which is what sets this poem apart. Without the closing lines I don't think the poem would stand out for me. Do you mind explaining a bit more about what you meant?
Summary: Have you ever wondered what Voldemort does when he isn't planning a new way to kill Harry?
Nice! Made me smile. How about a longer version?
Author's Response: If you want it longer, you\'ll have to send me some more ideas for activites. I stopped when I ran out. I\'m glad you liked it!
Summary: Enclosed here is a printed copy of the one and ONLY valentine that You- Know-Who, yes, he HIMSELF, in all his evil glory, ever wrote. With witty rhyme and winning words it shows you the other side of this seemingly heartless man. And to make it a little more interesting I'm not going to tell you who it is written to (*evil laugh*) in the poem. You can guess in your reviews and I'll tell you if you are right. If you are the first to correctly guess the person, I’ll give you the code for an icon I made and you can post it on your bio (if you want). Good Luck! Hope you enjoy! Please review!
LOL! Is Voldie watching the sky for the Dark Mark? *chortles* Such a well done valentine! If only the pasty, red-eyed, spider-handed, bald, noseless hunk would send one to me! I think I would swoon.
Author's Response: thanks for the review. Actually, when i wrote the poem i ment for him to be watching the sky for and owl to deliver a responce. But your idea is good, too.
Summary: A little owl who never stops believing that he will one day be the greatest post-owl that ever lived, is dissipointed when he finds out that he is going to be shipped to Romania. However, something happens that he never expected, and he finds himself leaving the place he lived in for so long to have a new life.
Written by Bryant of Ravenclaw for the One-Shot Owl Challenge.
I loved this story. I will never think of Pig the same way again. The lovable feathery tennis ball has his own story! I'm sure he would be proud. It never ceases to amaze me what fan fic authors choose to write about. I can honestly say this is currently my favorite off-the-wall mini fic. You write well, and your style is endearing. Keep writting more stories like this please. I'd love to see a series about all the pets of our favorite characters (like Trevor, Crookshanks, Hedwig, and Ginny's pygmy puff what's-his-name.)
Anyway, good luck. Pax.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you. I\'ve been taking a break for a while, but I\'m currently working on a new fic that will be up soon, I hope. It\'s reviews like this that makes me want to write fanfiction. It always inspires me when someone leaves good reviews! Thank you, once again!
Summary: This is a poem written from Ginny's perspective about how she feels on Bill and Fleur's wedding day.
So good! I'm sure this is how she will feel at the wedding unless Harry musters up the gumption to eat his words. Once again, you know how to capture the feelings of completely different characters and translate them into poetry.
Quick correction, one of your lines runs "It not that I'm not delighted..."--- you're missing the 's' in 'It's'.
Keep writing, you're really good.
Author's Response: thanks for the review.
Summary: August 1, 992
Salazar Slytherin explains his reasoning and rationale behind creating the Chamber of Secrets.
I was not sure, when I was reading this for the first time, whether this was meant to be a real justification for Slytherin's actions or rather an example of his twisted logic-- something to the effect of 'an evil deed is justified by a righteous end.' Even after a second reading I am not sure. Ultimately I think what Salazar did was unpardonable and so I view his 'justification' as completely unsatisfactory. However, I wish to stress how much I really enjoyed this work. It makes you think hard about why someone would do something so apparently evil and depraved. Everyone has a 'good reason' for what they do, no matter how mistaken they are. While Slytherin's regret strikes me as odd (why should he regret what he thinks is right-- is it because the means are so drastic?) I thought the way he reasoned betrayed a very human character. Fictional villains are typically one-dimensional. Your Salazar was a believable one.
I'm off to see if you have written anything else. Well done in this one shot!
Author's Response: Wow. Thank you. You\'re right, I am not trying to justify Slytherin, but to give him another dimension than evil. You made me blush.
Summary: As a young man out of Hogwarts, Arthur Weasley tries to find a job. Will he succeed before someone else steals Molly from him? We know what happens - come see how!
What a happily written, lovable perspective into Arthur and Molly's romance! You made me smile. The characters were perfectly reproduced and the plot believable. I completely understand poor Molly's desperation *grin* and applaud her wonderful way of taking command of the situation. You really made the young couple's predicament come alive. I was not expecting Lucius to be have his eye on Molly, but that doesn't make it bad. Your writing style is impressive.
I'd love to see more one-shots along the same lines. Ever think about maybe giving us a glimpse of their quiet wedding or when she tells him she is expecting? I can never get enough of the beautiful, touching moments (and less of the broom-closet relationship play-by-plays.)
Summary: Near the lake is a beech tree. This beech tree is where two couples declare their love for one another. It holds memories of love lost, found and forgotten. Under this beech tree is where four people spend two sunkissed days, nearly twenty years apart.
This is a Lily/James & Harry/Ginny story.
I think this is one of the sweetest one-shots I have read. You write beautifully.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m really glad you liked it!
Summary: This is a poem, written from Snape's point of veiw, explaining the whats and whys of what happened that ight by the tower. Why did he really do it? is he really still working for the Dark Lord? How could Dumbledore trust him?
I think your poem here is well done (and-- bonus points-- correct.) Super-duper. I was totally drawn into Snape's narrative. It was so delightfully... Snape-y! Bravo.
My only criticism-- the phrase 'until need be' in the third to last stanza has been used incorrectly. It needs an object. Its a pity since it fits in so perfectly.
More, more, more!
Author's Response: thanks!
Summary: Minerva is going through a rough time. First she lost her mother, then she lost her friends. Will she risk losing her father as well in order to live the life she wants to live?
Not bad! You have me interested... who are the five students and what were they up to?
Author's Response: Sorry, but this is just a one-shot, there won\'t be any other chapters. And to be completely honest, those five students don\'t even have names in my head, nor do I know what they did to poor Pringle.
Summary: The locked room is a place few wizards will go... Actually, where only one wizard will go as Jemina Doyle will son discover.
Written for Ravenclaw House
Good job! I think you did a great job introducing the characters here and in drawing the reader into the mystery of the locked room. I liked how you revealed some things, but not too much-- makes for an evil cliff hanger.
Summary: It is England in the early 1800's, Bonapart is reigning in France and tensions between the two countries are running high. Phillip must face the secrets of his past while still surviving in the present. It takes the portrait of a remarkable girl to teach him that he can find trust in a world gone mad.
Winner of the June/July monthly challenge, #1: autobiography, and overall winner. By coppercurls of Hufflepuff house.
Coppercurls, you are amazing! This story is hauntingly beautiful. The concept, the atmosphere, the details, and the characters are truly magnificent. I usually offer an author some cc, but I can't find anything to critique in this story. I hope I don't sound like I'm gushing, but the quality of your writing surpasses that of most fan fiction authors, and I think you deserve a place on the 'featured' list for this story.
I have read most of the authors you mentioned in this story by the way... I'm pleased to see that my theory that 'those who read great works write great works' is born out in your case.
Thank you for one of my new favorites.
P.S. -- Loved the switch from Thistledown to Thistle. Cute and creative. One of my favorite parts in the story.
Author's Response: Thanks for your appreciation. I have been on a French history kick lately, and it is nice to know that its fruits have been well recieved. I\'m glad you have read the classics; one thing western history has taught me is that they come in handy again and again. And as for Thistledown, he may look like he would blow away in a stiff breeze, but he is really all over in prickles (except for where his mistress is concerned of course). Thanks again!
