I'm Malene, currently I am living in a small country up north named Denmark... I want to travel, maybe live in the UK once I am done with school... That's going to take another four years of hard work, of course if I choose to stick with my choice.
I've been reading Harry Potter for a year now, and fanfiction for about four months and now I've taken to writing my own material... I have one in queue, I just hope it gets accepted, I've spend so much time on it, so I'm doing everything in my power to get it accepted... And yes! One of them is here and ready for your reading and reviewing pleasure!
The New Era -> A little One-Shot that has been forming it self in my head and one night I just had to get it out! It got so far I dreamt about it one time. Well, I've been working hard on it.
I still have another two-shot called It is Time or As Life Evolves according to my mood at the times I am submitting it. I've submitted that one like a dosen times, and it keeps getting rejected, and I keep getting no response for it. I'll have another Beta look at it before I'll submit it and see what happens.
I've started school again! Super nice! I like the school, it's a bit stressful as always so I have pretty much no time to do anything but read my school things and get ready!
I've joined several clubs at the school so I can get to know people and make even more friends and have a healthy social life! It's a cool school.
I still enjoy reading, when I have time (mostly weekends), and beside reading J.K.Rowlings Harry Potter series I have recently read Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, which I, to my own surprise, found alright. I am not saying it's good or anything, it's not a master piece or anything. I actually starting going back to church because of the book. My family and my friends say I am crazy every sunday when I loyally trot of to go to church. I've also read another of his books, Angels and Demons which I poured through on my way back from Bornholm with my family. I am really beginning to warm up to his writing style. I am actually thinking of reading his other two books. I just have to find them somewhere.
I've also read tons of danish books from danish authors. I really, really, really liked the danish book "Nordkraft". It's such a great view on our society today, esspecially the lower parts of our society. It makes you wake up from your easy and uncomplicated life and feel kindda guilty. I just love when books makes me think and revaluate my views on the world.
I am reading a biography of this FANTASTIC danish soldier. He's amazing and his book has actually helped me deal with some things I've kept locked in for quite some time. He's also helped me to realize that as long as I do everything 100%, that's fine. There's no reason to do everything 110% That's really helped me now as I have started my new school.
I am thinking of reading Peter Hoeg's latest book, Den stille pige (the silent girl), even though the danish critics doesn't like it and say it's bullshit. I am probably one person who doesn't really take what critics say seriously. Who are they really to say what I might like to read and not? I really hate when people try to shove their opinions down my throat.
I consider myself a Ravenclaw even though I have yet to be sorted over at the forums. I might do that someday. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow, maybe never and then again it might be some time in the nearest future.
I took a "What Marauder are you?" test and was given this result:
Which Harry Potter Marauder Are You?
I got Padfoot. Can you believe it? I can't. I don't even feel connected with the man, how can I be like him. Oh well , never mind.
I was bored and I took another test. How obsessed are you with Harry Potter at http://www.fuuko.com/hpquiz.html ! Try it.
41% obsessed with Harry Potter
Which makes me:
Full time Potter fan. You're obsessed.
That's it. I am obsessed!
I am a bit proud of an Acceptable at this quiz from The Leaky Cauldron. It was really tough...
Well that's a bit about me.
I agree with you, someone had to die and it had to be Remus. (I tend to kill him off as well. It's getting a little weird at my end) But never mind that.
You have such a great imagination and a almost perfect sense for the right detail, that I envy you. If only I could write half as good as you, all my stories would be on here.
I loved Tonks gesture (turning her hair pink again). That was my favourite part.
I also loved that even with the rain pouring down, people kept their seats in respect to Remus. (Rest in Peace, dear friend. I've said that too many times. Next fic that I write, he'll live, if not all the time. Just one time.)
But to save you from my on-going nonsense rambling, I'll stop my review here and tell you good luck with the next chapter.
Author's Response: Wow, you don\'t know what this means to me! It\'s such an honour to recieve such a compliment in a review...Thank you so much! Yes, I wanted to add the bit about her hair changing colour because I thought it seemed very Tonks-ish to show her happiness in that way. Thanks again for this kind review!
Great story... You're a really great writer, to be honest really.
It's going to be (from the readers point of wiev) quite interesting to see where you're going with this and therefore (please update soon!!!!!)
I'm almost sure, that this William fellow is Harry's and Ginny's new son, but of course we'll all get to know in due time...
Great story and continue the great work...
Okay??? Hey evil, evil chilfhanger... You're not being very nice at all...
It's never to late to tell the truth, Ginny should really tell the truth sooner or later...
And what about the whole Voldemort coming to see Percy thing?
Did Percy kill Harry?
Oh evil, evil, evil chilfhanger..
UPDATE SOON!!! Please...
OH! Very evil cliffhanger...
Lovely story! Fantastic story actually! I'm putting this on my favourite's list so I can keep an eye on it!!! Good work!
I loved this. Would you please update already? Asking as politely as I possibly can without bursting into high pitch screams.
I'm a big fan of James/Lily and I particularly hate the fics where they start their seventh year, and in the matter of a couple of seconds they're in the Head boy/girls room snogging. So this is a nice change. You did the characthers to the point of perfection, I chuckled a couple of times, and I love you cliffhanger. It always seems to get people to add your story to their favourites just to have an e-mail sent to your inbox.
I loved that you had Sirius and James train or are they already finished as Aurors. I never thought James would have done nothing, as for Sirius.
Well, I hope I didn't bore you to much, because I just wanted to let you know that I adore your fic and to encaurage you to update... Pretty please?
Author's Response: Yes, I\'m in the process of typing chapter 3... sorry, I\'m REALLY slow and lazy at that part, but you have motivated me! I will have it entered by Friday, I promise! As for it getting validated, well, can\'t promise anything there. Thanks for the wonderful review, don\'t give up on me!
Author's Response: Double Kudos
Oh, god. I can't stop laughing... I love it... All clichés all in one... Fantastic!
Author's Response: Oh, thanks for reviewing one of my fics. I\'m happy you like it. :)
It's a cute story, it really is.
I like that Remus is still scared of the whole relationship thing...
The only thing that I really didn't realize in your story was Tonks. I wouldn't have guessed it was her, if you hadn't told me as the very beginning. Where's the pink spiky hair and all?
I also like that Ginny and Harry got married as well as Hermione and Ron.
It's a cute story, you should really write more... Don't stop here, please!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you! I can\'t believe I didn\'t describe her hair! It totally slipped my mind, I guess. ~JBV
Author's Response: In case anyone\'s wondering, I did go back and add a little something about her hair at the beginning. *stupid author can\'t believe she forgot* ~JBV
The chapter is good, no doubt about it. There's just something missing! Oh wait I know. Joshua...
Harry is trying hard to grieve and as much as it hurts for me to say it: Joshua is dead, apparently...
Nice lighthearted chappie. I think we needed that since the tear-jerker that was your last chapter...
I'll look forward to more!
Author's Response: Thank you so much!! I\'m kind of regretting killing of Josh...but only a little!!
How could you? How dare you? You better have a good reason for killing of Joshua. Arh, he was so cute!
Great chapter... And seeing as I just caught up with this story, great story...
Bye-bye Uncle Fwed...
Arh.... How sad is this???
Author's Response: 1. How could you? Easy. I just typed and the letters popped up. I was crying, though. 2. How dare you? I want there to be an end to the story!! 3. How said is this? Very sad, I just wanted to show that even though he\'s dead, Joshie\'s going to be looking out for his family. Thanks!!
Oh... I've just read both chapters, they're great for of all...
I like the story, I enjoy reading Post-Hogwarts Ginny/Harry fics, and I enjoyed yours...
Evil chilfhanger, by the way...
You have to update soon...
Author's Response: lol, I\'ll try to update soon. I\'m at a sort of a writer\'s block, and I have to focus. Thanks for the great review!
Usually I don't read anything where Harry ends up dead ( or already is )... I used to refuse that it's even slightly believeable looking at other fantasy novels.
But my own theories aside... This is really good. If Harry was to die (hope not) this would be a fantastic suggestion to the final chapter of book seven. I've just noticed, the last word is scar... That's great. I applaude you, here from cold, rainy Denmark...
I can see why your teacher gave you that A ( I asumme A is the top grade )...!!!
My favourite part of this fanfic, is seeing Fawkes again. That last tribute was fantastic...!!!
You're a really great writer... Just keep up the great work...
Author's Response: Wow! Denmark! That\'s amazing! I really love Fawkes, and I hated to not see him again. I\'m so glad you liked it!
Maybe Harry's going to pick him up.???
I like your story a lot. You have a great plot and you write really well...
Author's Response: Thank you! I will update ASAP.
This one's good...
I liked that you put Ginny and Harry together, they are my favourite ship.
The very best part of this fic, was that you saved the identity of James' bride and her family to the very end. Very original thought to pair Harry's son with Draco's son! I would, never in a million years, have thought of this pairing.
Author's Response: Ginny and Harry are my favorite ship too. My best friend never thought that pairing until she read it either. It goes to show how sneaky I can be. ;)
We all know how this tale ends, but how does it begin? Did Lily hate James from Day One? Did James fall head over heels the moment he first laid eyes on Lily? How did Remus feel about the whole thing? Who let Peter slip through the cracks? And what exactly happens when Sirius gets hold of some Time-Release Dungbombs?
The Marauders' years at Hogwarts were marked by internal demons, external tensions, and whispers from the shadows growing steadily louder. By intertwining lives in the midst of danger. By powerful love and a whole lot of laughter. This is their story, a tale of cauldrons and comrades.
Wow... Where are you going with this story by the way?
It's a great story. I really like it. It's well written and it flows naturally.
As I see it, you can go two ways with this, (of course you already know where you're going with it, but bear with me) you can go back in time or stay in the present. Either way, your reader isn't confused. I think, therein lies one of your greatest strenghts with this story. You can tell your reader almost anything, and still have it look believable.
I like your subtle cliffhanger. As a reader, you think where is she going with this? You want to come back to read the next chapter just to see where you're going with it. You have your reader in the palm of your hand...
Great work, really great.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I appreciate your comments, because they validate the way I will take the story. Chapter One takes us all the way back to their first year, and continues from there. But there will be a few surprises and jumps in time, so I hope everyone can keep up. :) I\'ve submitted the next chapter, so keep your eyes peeled! Thanks again!
Why don't you have any reviews on this? I don't understand why you don't have any reviews.
It's great. Loved it. I loved everything about it. The setting, the plot, the characters, the ending, EVERYTHING!
I hope you'll get more reviews then just mine.
It's so powerful. I can't stop telling your how much I loved this, and how I loved your style and the great way you incorperated the lyrics!
Author's Response: Thank you!!! I am happy you like my fics!! I too am confused as to why it does not have any reviews ;) *cough* Thanks again for reviewing, and I hope you will continue liking my fics.... -Sunray
Oh! Alright, se Remus' son Quinten killed Harry Potter because he was mad at him?
Alright, I have to admit it. I would never myself have thought of it.
You have a fantastic sentenceflow. It doesn't seem rushed to me, but you give your reader just enough input, or so to speak, so they want to read on.
Great chapter, and good luck with the rest of your story!!!
Author's Response: Because Harry said the wrong words, and remembering the incident Harry had in the summer after his second year... Thank you for reviewing, but I will have to say that this story is a one-shot --otherwise I think I would\'ve excluded the open ending. (Or not...)
Fantastic story. You made it so realistic. Just one question: How did Harry kill Voldemort then? Avada Kedavra? Gryffindor's sword? Something else. I love the theories!!!
Great story, great sentence flow, fantastic charactarization.
Author's Response: Wow thank you, Im glad your pleased. Dont worry at some point the story of the final battle will get told, but untill then my lips are sealed. Sorry. I hope you keep reading and reviewing, I love it!
OH!!! This is good...
Harry died? Oh, I hate the thought of Harry dying, but this way could do it justice.
How does Ginny sit and watch the battle? Didn't quite get that...
And now for the fantastic part: The Grade!!!
Author's Response: Wow, thanks! A perfect score. And Ginny is (probably) either injured or forced to stay back. I left that open for people to decide as they read.
Oh, I like it.
You've done this first chapter really well. First of all I like your introduction. You make your reader feel slightly confused (in a good way), which made me want to read the whole chapter. I like the way you charactarized Hermione and Ron. They were right on point! I am a big sucker for Ginny and Molly and were really pleased to see they were also in character! Good work.
The chapter and the progress of the story seemed to flow nicely.
I do have some questions that I feel I didn't get answered. Where did Ron come from, has he moved out of The Burrow and why did Hermione stay there, or more importantly: how old are they?
Well. I really just wanted to congratulate you and say good work and keep it up... This has the potential to be a real hit...
First of all I want to thank you for writing this fic. It's amazing.
I've always found it extremely difficult to write in first person, but you make it look so easy. Even though I didn't like Arthur dying saving a person whom I don't like, I like the way you did it. You made it so natural and so flowy? Is that a word? My spellchecker says it isn't, but I'll leave it in there. Back to my point... This story flows nicely along with the input of heartbreaking grief and sorrow. I liked the idea of how Arthur died as I've said earlier. He always seemed to me the kind of person who would do exactly that.
I think you deserve more then just my review, because this story is absolutely brilliant. I especially liked the way you described Molly's grief. That she tried to hide her true feelings from her children was done perfectly. That's also a believable reaction of Molly's. I've looked at your other stories, and I have to say. You're brilliant. Thank you again, for writing this.
Author's Response: Wow. If I could give you a Reviewer of the Year award, I would! :] Thank you *so* much. This was my first attempt at writing first person. I wanted to make it really personal & I think first person definitely helps achieve that sense of closeness with a character. It helped that it was Ginny\'s POV - I can identify with her, so it was a little bit easier writing about her than, say, Voldemort. I\'ve always pictured Arthur as being a protector - he\'s a dad, after all. So it was sort of instinct when he pushed Draco out of the way. I\'m glad you liked it - it *is* a shame, because it\'s Malfoy, but I also thought he\'d be the type to do something like that. Flowy? Thank you :D That\'s nice to hear, even if it isn\'t a word (but it should be!). I definitely think Molly puts her family before anything else - her worst fear, after all, is their deaths. So she\'s in a difficult situation, and I\'m glad you thought it was realistic :] Thank you so much for this awesome review!! I\'m really flattered, I can\'t thank you enough!
