I am a fifteen-year-old highschool sophomore who wastes her time on silly things like homework, homework, homework, sleep, and fanfiction. I'm also writing things outside of the realm of Harry Potter, but that involves doing my own character development, so I'm no good at it.
I have a lot of stories posted on here, so I would be much obliged if you checked them out and what I like to call "read" them. It's a crazy idea, but it just might work.
My favorite characters are Harry, Hermione, the entire Weasley family (except for Percy, I don't like him much), Snape, Buckbeak, and Sirius (RIP).
Now for some other random facts about me.
Eye Color: Green like Harry! Man, I'm obsessed.
Hair Color: Brown, like the actor who plays Harry!
Favorite Color: Pink, like nothing involving Harry.
Yeah, so now that you know a bunch about me, you should definitely read my fanfics. Some of them are pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.
I am the cousin of Isabella Rose, who still has nothing posted here. She is, however, working on her first fanfiction, which is being beta-ed by me. I am also the dear friend of Leah Preston, who does not intend to post anything, and The Second Snape, who has already posted something, the sly dog. Yes, for those of you who have read her fic and follow it banging your heads into your computers because she never updates, I'm working on it too. And yes, she has updated.
By the way, my website has absolutely nothing to do with my fanfiction, so until I get really bored with this site and switch over to a new one, it'll stay there and have nothing to do with Harry Potter.
And now, dear reader, I am off to write for you. Do not despair, for I will not abandon any fics. Ever. I hate it when people do that!
Here is the awesome banner for my story:
*breaks down sobbing* I know I've been needling you about this for a while, but -- I NEED MORE STORY!!! Agh, I can't stand this. More! Listen to the radio for a week straight or something! Get inspired! Agh, I can't take much more of this. They're all so wonderful! Just write -- I don't care what, just do it! Ahem. Now that I've said my bit, I'll leave it to you.
Author's Response: Ella . . . you know I love ya, right? I mean, you're my most faithful reader/reviewer for this story . . . I treasure you, I do - and I don't want to let you down . . . BUT, yes there's always a but, I have no ability to write at this time . . . Sob story time: My dad was in the hospital because of a stroke, I'm incredibly stressed with my classes (no motivation for school or for writing - 7 tests, two papers, and a presentation to go!), I've got issues with friends that won't go away, I'm trying to get a job lined up for this summer, trying to get organized because I'm studying in England next fall, planning and organizing my mission trip to Africa in three weeks (for three weeks), was working on top of everything (teaching, gah!) until two weeks ago when I quit because I have NO time for much of anything! So trust me when I say that I won't leave this story unfinished. . . just that I can't possibly write at ALL until school is out and I am back from Africa . . . I am terribly sorry, but that's how its gonna be for me for a while. . . So much love and thanks for being so patient!
Oh yay! ... and ... oh no! ::sobs relentlessly onto some invisible shoulder:: Marin, poor Marin! Ah! Sirius is so sweet ... that is the way that all boys should be, I swear! Please, please, please write more! I'll die if you don't! 10!
Author's Response: Sirius is the ideal guy, so far. Don't worry, he'll become more male-like soon enough. I can't write every woman's dream man for long - they don't exist in the Potter or the real world. I have one more chapter to add before I have to start writing again . . . it'll come in time!
This looks like it'll be awesome ... I love James/Lily, and more than that, I love the Marauders. You've captured their witty and sinister sarcasm --- I love it! Write on, friend, and take this shiny 10 with you!
Every single time I look to see if you've updated, I see that last chapter and that song Broken by Amy Lee starts playing in my head. I love that song ... it fits perfectly too.
Author's Response: Thanks! Sometimes if the lyrics aren't quite right, the music is . . . but in that chapter's case, the music and words are fitting. . . I'm all about the soundtrack to life :-)
Oh, gosh, you're amazing! This is an awesome fic. I totally know how Marin feels. It's not like she reacted some weird way that wouldn't happen in real life ever. She really was hurt because of that -- from the way that she's been acting around him, it sounds like he really wounded her. We've all been in her position, haven't we? We're either a Marin or a Delaney. Lol. Your character development is superb. Thanks for continuing the story!
Author's Response: I think Marin and Delaney are kind of polar opposites . . . I think that more of us sit somewhere in between . . . I was hoping I could get the characters across in a way that was honest and real - and obvious. . . I'm glad that you picked up on it all!
Oh, I luff that song! So immediately, you score brownie points with me, just for using it. Anway, it's really cute, and I want more!
Author's Response: Thanks! Try reading my Love will find away story!
This was absolutely splendiferous! I don't remember precisely where I got that word, but it seems to apply here. I love the endless ranting, but it's got a plot too, no matter how thin ... Keep writing!
Author's Response: haha, thanks! Splendiferous...intriguing...
This is funny in a very different sort of way ... I love it! It's like mock-serious, and therefore it's funny ... I'm confused. Don't worry, I'm still reading the next chapters.
Author's Response: This whole story confuses me...and I'm writing it...haha, look for an update soon!
I love it when Ron's a romantic ... Great job.
This is really good. I like the tension that you've put in Lynn. It's really intriguing. Man, I wish I could do OC's like that.
Author's Response: Thankyou so much! Lynn is very dear to me, as most of my characters are, so I really appreciate the compliment for her. As soon as I can, the final chapter will be up! It's all ready to go, I just have to subitt it! Thanks again!
Oh, are you ever going to update? Agh, I need more!
Author's Response: Yes, I am going to update... I've tried several times but my fic has been rejected each time! So, I am overhauling it to work out the gliches. SHould be in working order within the week. Meanwhile, check out my humor fic... sofar, it seems to be getting good reviews.
Author's Response: Alright, last chapter has been posted and approved!
Oh, it's a short story! NOOOO! Anyway, glad there are sequels. Keep writing ... I'll keep a look out for you!
Author's Response: You know, due to popular demand, I may just keep this one going! I have to think about it, though....
Author's Response: All right! I know when I am defeated!.... I will keep this story going on this same fic, and just label everything as part two. This should be interesting...
I like this ... I really really like this. It was on my favorites because I wanted to be able to find it, but I really really like this. Very interesting plotline. Excellent job. Excellent.
Author's Response: I'm so glad you like it!!! I'm still working on the next chapter, hopefully it will be up soon... And I'm in your favorites? I'm honored!
A wandless witch, eh? I like ... Your writing flows very naturally. I really love it. She knew James and Lils and all the Marauders, and what you've done with her makes her seem like she really could have been there all along. Congrats! I love this story!
Author's Response: Thank you so much Ella!! You always say the nicest things about my writing! I so glad you like it!
I think that was the most excellent introduction posted on the site. Many have mastered the art of story-telling, but few have mastered the art of introducing the aforementioned stories. Applause, my friend, much applause.
Author's Response: *sniff* Thankyou so much! The stories in between the stories are my favorites... that's why I wrote this.
You're bringing Sirius back into it? That would be exciting. Again, short chapter, but you write well. I really love your writing style -- it's really pure and unaffected. Beautiful -- keep writing.
Author's Response: Thank you for the beautiful review! That is one of the best compliment's I've had on my writing!
Well, I don't mean at all to be a trademark-stealer, but I may just have to steal your trademark. It's a neat idea. But anyway --onto more important things. Generally, I can guess the quality of writing in a fic. For example, short chapters and titles like Harry Potter:The Sixth Year will turn me off and tell me to beware bad writing. (Nothing against your title, but it's not the best one ever.) Not so here. Even though it's short, you write well. You've inspired me. I'm not going to write off fics like this anymore. Usually I get bored of fics that have ... say about ... twenty-six chapters already posted when I begin. Granted, it is a daunting task. But since you've asked me to review, I shall, and I'll probably read some later chapters. Excellent start. Hope to see more from you. ~Ella
Author's Response: True about the title. It's something that has bothered me for awhile. When I came up with the title, I had no direction for my story and only one chapter written. In all honesty, it did start out bad. Hopefully though, it has gotten better. And for the length, I simply have no time to get them longer. I could but there wouldn't be as many updates. I guess it was basically choosing between two evils. Thank you very much for coming to read, even though there's so many chapters! ;) I'll think about the title and see what else I can get. Surely after twenty six chapters I should have some ideas...;) Thanks again!
This is brilliance! Once of my favorites! Nice shiny 10!
First of all, thank you for reviewing my story. This is very good ... very good. I love the pictures of the final battle that don't seem to be going in a happy direction. Dumbledore dying! ::sniff sniff:: I must say, however, that this is just as I have pictured it. You're doing a fine job of telling a difficult story to tell. Keep going and be descriptive as possible, and you'll do just fine. Sorry this is a bit shorter than the review you gave me.
Author's Response: Its pefectly fine, and I am glad you think it is good. I cried when I killed Dumbledore - lol.
That was touching beyond all belief. Perfect, and beautiful. And ... right.
