Status: Sanity Searching
WELCOME ONE AND ALL!
You have reached Wand_Waver2006, aka Star. I am currently trying to find my sanity. Have you seen it anywhere?
Please leave your message after the beep! I'll try desperately to get back to you.
Just some facts;
In grade 12!
Music and writing is my life!
I can't write for crap...but i thank everyone who thinks I can :)
hands down, prisoner of azkaban is my favourite book...of all time.
I really AM trying to find my sanity.
RAVENCLAW AND PROUD OF IT!

*gapes* Absoballyutely wunnerful! Can't wait for another chapter.
As always, I am amazed at the power of your writing, Vorona. Absolutely stunning. Your characterization of Harry at times was a bit OOC to me; I don't quite see him /asking/ Snape to do anything. But, that's probably just the way I see it 'cause I'm weird like that. :D
The interaction between Snape and Harry was ideal; very tense and lotsa yelling. Very nice. I also saw warping between Number 12 to Hogwarts to the Ministry. It's quite refreshing to not have that description, partially because it would take hours and be boring in the wrong hands.
I especially liked the RB memoirs. They are very unique in style and quality, and I'm sure no one else could write such a convincing piece and make it dark at the same time.
The best of the best you are, m' dear.
Author's Response: Why thank you, dear! I see what you mean about asking... Funny, the biggest problem people have had with Harry is that he would never turn his back on Snape like that! *rolls eyes* No one on Mugglenet has said that, so I can indulge in my eye rolling. Not sure exactly what you mean by \"warping\", but I get the gist. I\'m glad you found it refreshing. But thank you so much for your kind thoughts on the memoirs themselves and me in general. They make a narcissist smile with glee!
That...was...AMAZING! Bloody brillant, it was! Good job;bring up the next part soon.
Author's Response: Hey, thanks! I\'m glad so many people like this story. The next part is on its way, I promise.
I never thought Snape would be good with children...but I know you write differently than most about Snape. I like that side of him. It was a little confusing at first, but around the middle I was like 'Oh! That's why!' *rolls eyes*
It's a really nice one-shot. You're a powerful writer; Snape's train of thought is perfect disorientation, as it should be after an explosion, and his characterization after he remembers is also just marvelous to read. I don't have much to point out; I would have added more commas, being the freak I am. I saw two nit-picky things: after 'Avada Kedavra' you have an extra ending brakcet, and when Harry says 'Sea-wuz', there's no 'd' on 'questioned'. Otherwise, I see nothing wrong to point out.
Geat job, CM!
I love this! Absoballyutely love it! I'll be keeping my eye on this one, I will. I like how you characterize Lily, and that you do first person--kinda my specialty--because it's easier to tell how a person is feeling. Keep the cliffies comin', too--they make stories very interesting!
Can't wait for the next chappie!
Author's Response: Yay! Thanks, I\'m really glad you like it. And I mean that. And don\'t worry - The cliffies really do keep coming, so I\'m glad you won\'t hate me for that.
*claps* Very nice, Pussy! For some reason I love the hate between LOVE and Iola. Though I think you could have put some more effort into the Quidditch scene. (Sorry, detail freak here) Otehrwise, very ncie addition to a wonderful story!
Author's Response: You\'re absolutely right, but really, I\'m a terrible, terrible writer when it comes to Quidditch scenes. It\'s better to breeze right over it. Still, I\'m glad you liked it! And don\'t worry, they\'ll be more of that loathing still to come!
That fight scene was brillant, though too much dialogue...don't get me wrong, dialogue is good, but action is good, too. Try to balance it out.
I still love the PoV that you tell this from! It makes it seem like your're watching it, that you're right there with it, not just sitting there and reading what seems like already happened.
A great addition to a wonderful story, I must say again. I am falling head-over-heels in love with it, and I both dread and aniticpate the ending.
Luvs 'n' hugs,
Author's Response: Thanks for a great review! I\'ll keep in mind what you said about the dialogue vs action, though. It\'s probably very true. What you said about the POV is true, too - the tense it\'s in is intentionally to make you feel like you\'re there, so I\'m glad that\'s working out. I\'m glad you\'re liking this story, thanks for reviewing!
Hehe! This is awesome, Pussy. I L-O-V-E this story! (Stupid joke, have a nice trip, see ye next fall, blah-blah-blah...)
Lily was a bit too sarcastic in this one, but I like the voice. Voices are fun, expecially the ones who are always right. ^.^
Author's Response: Thanks! I think Lily is the sort of person, who, when she gets bitter, would be very sarcastic about things (whereas Iola is sarcastic about everything all the time, lol). But that\'s just my take on her, is all. I\'m glad you like it!
It's good. I don't ship H/Hr, but the way you characterize Ron is wonderful! He would really look up that potion in the book. 9/10, just for the ship. Other than that, I'm staying tuned in to this.
Author's Response: Thank you! I know most people don\'t ship Harry/Hermione, but I\'m glad you looked past that and liked the story. Thanks again!
Oh. My. Gosh!!!! This is awesome! You say Merlin an awful lot, though. Other then that, it's bloody brillant! Keep writing--can't wait for the next installment!
Author's Response: haha I do? glad you liked it (:
Wow. That was...wow. I like the fact that Hermione pulls herself together; I could never see her completely losing it if Ron ever died. Ginny is a tad harsh when she says, "Pull it together, woman!" But, that may just be me.
I have an idea about the little girl, but I'll save it. I want to figure out if I'm right. [I'm planning on reading this story now! :p]
"What? He's what?" she, ferociously tying her frizzy brown hair into a sloppy ponytail.
I'm sorry, beta mode. ^^ You put 'she', then didn't follow through with it. Just my little nit-pick.
Okay, the note at the end is just hilarious, Hannah. ^^" Great prologue! It's got me all excited to read the rest.
Star, Ravenclaw Booster Club
Author's Response: Thanks,Star! I thought I fixed that! Thatnks for pointing it out though, I\'ll go change that when I get a chance. =) Thanks so much for your lovely review!
Oh! *sniff* That made me so sad to read...It was almost like I felt Harry's pain while I read it. But, even though it's sad, it's very good, and besides, I'm due for payment for the loverly banner you made me. ^-^ I give it two thumb's up!
The Order of Ravenclaw House Elves
Author's Response: Thank-you for the review, Star! Now, what is \"The Order of The Ravenclaw House-Elves?\" We\'ve been talking about it in the Slytherin common room you know, wondering...
Yay! It got validated! As I've said before, this is wonderful and I hope you get lotsa reviews! If not, it's alright, the more stories, the more poeple will get familiar with your writing.
♪A VERY happy Star/Nienna's Beta♪
Ha! I never thought I would see this validated and on here--well done, all who participated! Didn't join in myself, but maybe next time. *doesn't feel like critiquing today*
♥'s and hugs,
Oh my gosh. I'm speechless, Miki. This...it was just beautiful. I love your characterization of Norah--she is a wonderful OC. I never thought that James would kiss someone other than Lily while he knew he loved her; it is amazing that they kept that secret.
I hesitate to say that my beta mind was recoiling at some spots. My eye caught forgotten commas and rearranged some things, but you got most of it. Did you use a beta? If you didn't, I congratulate you on that front as well.
Very well written, Miki. You deserve a place in this category!
Author's Response: I actually didn\'t use a beta. At all. I thought it\'d be rejected due to errors. But it wasn\'t! So yippee! Anywho, was the keeping it a secret believable? I wasn\'t sure. He is James Potter of course... :D
That was so sweet! I've never read a Lily/Sirius before--first time for everything, eh? I love that Lily has a notebook--I too use one--and that she takes it personally. You write Sirius well, as well as a good Lily.
A wonderful story for the archives, dear!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! :D
Wow. Absolutely amazing. I've never seen such a story from Bellatrix's point of view that made me feel sorry for her. Truth be told, I always thought she was crazy, but never in the way like, "Oh, poor dear."
Simply breathtaking, mate.
Author's Response: *smiles*
I\'m really glad you liked it. It\'s always so nice to hear that I have made someone reconsider their views on my precious Bella.
Thanks so much for the review.
*chokes* *Sputter* *Dies*
I have to admit, I've always seen you around the forums but I've never read a fic of yours...well, you've got a new fan, Schmerg! That was so damn funny! The people down here in the lounge were staring at me because I was laughing out loud. *looks* *still staring* I guess they haven't stopped yet...O.o
Anyway, great spoof. *goes off to look at author's page*
Author's Response: Oh, gosh! Thanks so much, Star! I love getting new readers. ^_^ Just wave at the nice people in the lounge and say \"I have a connection to Voldemort\'s mind, and he\'s thinking naughty thoughts!\" then simply skip away.
One word: wow.
I read this whole story the past two days. It was such a great way to be distracted from my homework! I started reading it and I was like 'Okay, pregnant teen, cliché warning?' But next-gens are a weekness ofmine, I just had to read! Your writing is very original, and I love your characterization of Lily--I never saw her as a perfect little angel, either. All I can say is you've definately found a reader, and I can't wait for the next chapter!
