Why is your pename Ellie4Harry?

When will your next chapter be up??
I'm working on it, stop chasing me down dark alleyways!!
Can I borrow your Pritt Stick?
For Goodness sake Joanna, buy your own!
Date: May 7th
Time: I don't know, I lost my watch at the swimming pool.
Chapter 5 has been submitted!!! *does happy dance* I have absolutely NO CLUE when Chapter 6 will be up. I have to write chapter 2 of another story and start writing a different one all together! Oh and no to mention that wonderful word - EXAMS!! On a happier note - I'm going on Scout camp! Yayyy! (This is a very big deal for me!)
Well, I suppose I should start studying *gags*
My fantastic beta, Jen, has made a great banner! Check it out at:
This next banner was made by my wonderful friend Colli!
Summary: Long before Harry and his friends were born, Tom Riddle and his sister Miriam attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In a diary written by Miriam, she recounts the events of their seven years at Hogwarts . . . and how her brother eventually became corrupted by the dark side.
OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo!!!! What a great chapter. It really did show how much Miriam and Tom have changed over the years and have grown up (well one more than the other)
But does this mean that the next chapter is the last one? *sob* say it ain't so!
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, I was trying to show how much they grew up (or at least how one did). Unfortunately, the next one is the last chapter. But it\'ll be a long one. :-)
Is Sam one of Voldie's death Eaters or is it his son? Great chapter 10/10
Author's Response: He\'s not one of Voldy\'s DE\'s... ;-) But your close.... lol
ohmigod! This is such a good story!! I didn't really like Henry but what Tom did to him was,well, evil! I feel so sorry for Miriam, and Tom's not going to leave her alone, is he?
Author's Response: Leave her alone? No. Especially in the next chapter.... I\'m glad you like the story and this chapter!! :-D
Yay! Grindy (If Voldie has a nickname Grindelwald should too!) is dead! I feel really sorry for Marcella. First petrified now this? and even a bit sorry for Libby Carrey and Murdoch. It was a great chapter but the fact that Tom would be flirting with a Ravenclaw girl dosen't seem right. Slytherins are prejudiced against all other houses...usually anyway. 10/10
Author's Response: I like the name Grindy too! :-) lol Yeah, this was the first time I felt sorry for Libby, Carrey, and Murdoch too. And I don\'t think all Slytherins are prejudiced against other houses, though it does seem that way. It\'s kinda like the saying, \"Slytherin\'s don\'t make friends, they make political alliances.\" lol I always imagined Tom to be the flirty type in school, even though he wasn\'t into \'love\'. I think he used it to his advantage, hence why he always seemed to get his way and eveyone liked him.
Oh is he one of Grindelwalds or or or
hmmmmmm I can't think of anyone else!
Author's Response: *does a JKR moment* No comment. ;-)
Hi! Have you noticed that I've been reviewing your brilliant story a lot? Could you please review mine (its got Tom in it if that makes it better!)
Author's Response: I\'d love to read your fic. I\'m always up for a good TR story. :-)
This chapter sounds good, if a bit scary! But I can't read it! Its those stupid administrators! Grr! *takes out wand*
Author's Response: I\'ll join you! *takes out my wand, and yells \"Crucio!\"* Okay, I feel better now. lol Hopefully it\'ll be approved sometime this week. Last chapter took over a week, and that was with the Queue closed.... I just noticed that this story has passed the 100 review mark! *Celebrates by breaking out and passing around the non-alcoholic Morsmordre Margaritas!*
Summary: A look into the life of Voldy's pet snake, Nagini.
OMG! I am so a fawkes/nagini shipper. I love the story it rocks! Please update soon!
Author's Response: Cool! Another F / N shipper. lol Glad you liked the story. I just started writing chapter 6, so it might be a little before it gets added.
Fabulous! Now I have to email mugglenet and ask if the dementors can french kiss! hehe! imagine if thats the ending of book seven (how many crystal balls do you own?)!

Good luck with all your fics and um stuff.

Summary: A Shakespearean Parody written in a style akin to the original (well almost) featuring Fred and George Weasley
This crazy author was bored ^_^ This is my laughable attempts to massacre some the famous play-wright's most notable lines. ^_^
I showed it to my 16 year old sis and now she's finding macbeth much easier to read. Thanks it was a great story and so funny
Author's Response: :) It great to hear that my fun is making someone\'s studying easier. Good luck to your sister. :)

Follow and you will see..."The first step, my son, which one makes in the world, is the one on which depends the rest of our days." -Voltaire

Author's Response: they are all nice now. is everyone forgetting the fact that they are still first years. you have to wait for the dust to settle to see who they really are. thanks!!! ~Sara
Wowies! It was a fabulous story! And I really like the title for number two! (in response to your authors note: Yes, of course I loved it and will read all the other sequels!)
Author's Response: Thank you soooo much!! Yay!! Can\'t wait to see what you think!!! ~Sara
Oh wow! That was brilliant as always. They were potrayed really well, Harry wasn't the usual Harry but obviously he is different in this story! 100000/10
Author's Response: Thank you so very much!! I\'m glad Harry was portrayed that way; not too good, but not too bad. Thanks! ~Sara

Author's Response: Yay!!! Thank you for voting for me!!! Well, I wouldn\'t really call them the Trio anymore. I kind of see it as Draco on one side and Hermione and Ron on the other, with Harry right in the middle. Thanks again! ~Sara

Author's Response: Two chapters left in this story, but there is the second one. That will be up in a few weeks. It\'s called \"A Different Road II: Influence of a Diary\" so look for it later! Thank you!!! ~Sara

Please leave a review before you leave! It means a lot! You can check out the banner of this story on my author's page!
Oh, that last scene was so wonderful and heart-warming! I actually started singing when I read the last paragraph. I'd never been much of a Dramione fan before, but this story has completely changed my opinion! I seriously loved this chapter (the scene where Violet barged in on Draco was hilarious!) and I can't wait for the next one! Ellie :D
Author's Response: Hey, Ellie! Oh wow! I\'m glad that this fic was able to change ur mind \'bout dramione fics =D Honestly, I used to initially hate the pairing myself, but some fics got me completely hooked! Now here I am, writing my own! lol...Really glad you enjoyed the chapter! Thank you soo much for taking the time to review!
Summary: Pygmy puffs, both sides of Fred's buttocks and music. You would think that there were more important things in Harry's life.
Be amazed as Ron, Hermione and, of course, Harry attempt to write Harry's life story with a musical touch.
Warning: Involves out of tune Neville in later chapters. Disregards Deathly Hallows.
The next few chapters are now in the process of being written as I have a sudden breakthrough for a storyline. Thank you for your patience.
That was great! Really funny!I was going to do a play fic but now I'm going to alter it into something else so you don't get scary lawyrs to chase after me! :O
Author's Response: Do it! It would be really fun to read. Thanks for reviewing :)
Summary: A compilation of the most commonly used Harry Potter clichés in the fandom. Features Angsty!Harry, Sweet!Draco, Head Dorms, sudden romances in the forms of Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny and of course, Draco/Hermione, because what's a cliché without them?
The Marauders also make an appearance in this fic, including Lily/Lily's best friend/Lily's other best friend.
Warning: mention of hippopotamuses inside.
Chapter Five is up! The story is done. Also, thank you to everyone who nominated this neatly tied bundle of ridiculousness in the QQ awards, I really appreciate it!
So funny!!!!! I can just think of Hermiones children who will be horrible until they develop sweet, caring, new personailtys!
Author's Response: Hahaha, that made me laugh out loud. I\'m glad you like the personality bit.
*sobs* I can't believe its over. Brilliant fic and I hope you write more of them in the futre(which you will or I'll have to attack you down a dark alleyway)
Author's Response: Uh, I\'ll just ignore that last comment because it\'s scaring me. Yes, I will write more humour fics in the future and I am planning one right now, I have the idea. Thanks you!
