Howdy (I'm Texan, after all)
I'm a Harry Potter obsessed person who has Hermione's hair as well as her general lack of interest in appearance. My favorite category on Mugglenet is Romance, specifically Remus/Tonks (a ship that I support in canon) and Snape/Hermione (though I ship Ron/Hermione -- albeit somewhat incredulously, because I don't know what Hermione sees in Ron -- in the books, I prefer to read S/H fanfics).
It sounds unoriginal, but I also love musicals. The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Hairspray, Camelot, etc...good stuff! And the Beatles. My love of the Beatles supports the theory that the British are better musicians and writers than we residents of the U.S. Sad, but...there you are.
For S/H shippers: If you want to read an AMAZING Snape/Hermione & others fanfic, go check out His Draught of Delicate Poison by Subversa. It really is intriguing as well as chock-full of romance. Don't be put off by Hermione/Snape if you don't ship them, as there's plenty more to the story and Subversa pulls it off spendidly.
For T/L or R/T or whatever shippers: For a great Tonks/Lupin one-shot, go to The Moment on my favorites list. It really is the best one-shot T/L fanfic that I've read.
Please read my little one-shot...I'm working on about ten thousand better ones, but I'd appreciate reads/reviews in the meantime. =)
That's all...read & review, I beseech thee! Thanks!
Summary: Lily's eighteenth birthday is approaching fast. Will one of her friends figure out to do with a long-neglected organ?
Very good! I liked how you kept everyone in character.
Author's Response: Thanks! They\'re fun characters, especially Severus.
Summary: "Tonks watched him turn and raise his hand in his normal farewell salute. She copied, hoping it looked as natural on her as it did on him.
His chuckle of amusement told her it didn't."
Tonks liked him, she wasn't afraid to admit it, to herself anyway. To him? Never!
But what if she dared to...?
Wow...so sad! Good...but sad! *sniff*
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Sorry I made you sad, \'twas my evil side taking over and killing everyone. Thanks for the review!
Summary: Lupin deals with Sirius's death by Tonks's side in the hospital. After OoTP, Tonks struggles to stay alive.
That was very good! My problem is that mine is too long...maybe I'll finish my Remus/Tonks eventually. Anyhoo, thanks for a good read!
Author's Response: I hope so too. There should always be long Remus/Tonks stories in the world. Though, considering this was a review sent years ago, you most likely have finished by now and it\'s just me who took forever to update.
Also, I just read the other reviews and the "broken record" life after death idea is really interesting. I also agree that there was no way you weren't going to get onto the site. =)
Author's Response: Thank you, I hope the second chapter got on as well. I forgot in the previous reviews that it wasn\'t actually definitally on the site yet... whoops... Well, I hope you get to read it...
Summary: Lily Evans and James Potter are excited about their wedding day. It’s their one chance to prove that love can overcome the cruel darkness of the terrible Wizarding war they are fighting. However, both bride and groom are feeling pre-wedding jitters. Can they conquer their nervousness and make it to the altar? Songfic to the amazing song “I’ll Cover You” from RENT.
I totally recognized the tufty-haired man! I even ran and got my 6th book to confirm it as soon as Dumbledore said the thing about not letting the guy give his eulogy at his funeral. Good job! =)
Author's Response: Thanks for all your reviews, I really appreciate them!
Summary: Remus worries why his wife comes home late so often.
New idea! Worked great! =)
Summary: The war is over, and Harry and Ginny have been happily married for almost a year. Wedding bells are ringing for Ron and Hermione, but will Tonks and Remus ever tie the knot?
Yay! I love Lupin/Tonks. =) Muy bien
Author's Response: I love Lupin/Tonks, too! Muchas gracias! ~JBV
Summary: "Six moments in time, they are all different but they all remind me of one man."
Told from Hermione's point of view, 6, 100 word peices that all lead back to Severus Snape. Please Read and Review.
A first rate, lovely story!
Author's Response: thanx, ecca
Summary: Draco is sent on a mission - to get someone to trust him. He'll find out that trust isn't an easy thing to get - or to keep.
I'm looking forward to more!
Author's Response: So am I! I have it all planned out, and I\'ve started to work on it already!
Summary: After falling during the battle in the Department of Mysteries, Tonks wakes up in St. Mungo's in more ways that one. Set at the end of OotP. Part 2 of the "I Should Tell You" series.
I really loved this one! It would have completely depressed me if not for Tonks' more fortunate future in book 6.
Summary: One-shot. Two parts, first Ron/Hermione, then Harry/Ginny. Both parts take place at sunset after Bill and Fluer's wedding.
This is my first fan fiction on these boards, so please read and review!
Author's Response: Gracias! I\'m glad you liked it. Thanks for reviewing.
Summary: It had been two years since the final battle.. two years since Hermione Granger was thought to be dead my the wizardng world.. Thus, being 'shocked' would be an understatement when Severus came across a Miss Hermy in a remote Welsh village, whose unmistakanable brown hair hasn't change one bit..
Can't wait for the next chapter! I like the new plot start and all. Poor Harry and Ron =( They'll find her eventually, I'm guessing, with the help of a certain (ex?) teacher. =)
Ooh! Good, the confrontation! (Woe is me, you've left a cliffhanger.)
I just have to say: I don't think Snape is the kind of guy who would say "buddies"...if you were using it for him to make fun of people who do say buddies, that makes more sense.
Also, this is just my single opinion, I think "Miss Hermy" is a bit perfect right now. Maybe we'll see some nice character flaws in the next chapter? That would make me happy.
Other than that, I like your story. Keep up the good work.
She shouts.... He storms off.... He realises it's a mistake and returns - will she still be waiting for him?
So powerful! I love:
And yet she had held tightly, her delicate fingers locking around his wrist, ignoring the pleading look in his eyes. Her gaze had held his for a long moment, and then she raised his arm and slowly but firmly pressed her lips to the mark.
A chilling, sad ending as well. I loved it!
Author's Response: I\'m so glad you liked it!! I\'m so thrilled you liked the part where Hermione kissed Severus\' arm. I think that\'s the only way in which she could have got through to him that she forgives his past (I don\'t think he would have believed it if she just told him). Thank you so much for reviewing! xxxxxxxx
Summary: Remus Lupin has always been a bit of a loner. To his surprise, he finds that, somehow, Nymphadora Tonks has become a part of his life.
Both well written and sweet! Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: It is the eve of the start of a new term, and Remus is worried about two people that he’s known for a very long time.
That was great! Please revisit this storyline.
Summary: How many times had Hermione wanted to be a Mrs. Ronald Weasley? She’d lost count over the years.
A Ron/Hermione & Harry/Ginny fanfic that takes place at the Quidditch World Cup.
Thank you =)
Summary: The war is over, Voldemort is dead at last, and the Wizarding World is rejoicing. Hermione, however, doesn't feel like celebrating. Sitting out by the Black Lake one night, she is joined by the most unexpected, but not entirely unwelcome, person.
Very good! I like how it's kind of a friendship thing rather than a romance- I know this is a romance category, but I like reading one that isn't passion and all.
Author's Response: Thank you! That was my intention with this fic - to sort of set the scene for the promise of romance, and leave you guys to imagine the rest. I\'m so glad you liked it.
Summary: "Molly, she'll get over it. After a long time, the pain will leave and she'll be left with-"
"Nothing. Can't you see? She's given it all to you."
Very good =)
Author's Response: I love your name! That is such a good song. It\'s so funny because me and my friend were singing it all night last night. Thanks for the review. The more the merrier.
Summary: What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
