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!
Good start! I'm looking forward to the nexty chapter and hoping that you'll include some Lupin-y goodness soon! =)
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Lupin appears in Chapter 2...he\'s got a surprise for Tonks, but she\'s got a bigger one for him.
Great story! I really liked Blaise's characterization. It was -- for lack of a better word, I'm sorry and I'm kicking myself for using it -- interesting to have him so driven by ambition. Also, nice use of the Fidelius charm there.
Maybe it's just me, but I had no idea what was coming. Pretty much the only thought that was in my head when Blaise said that there was an Order member in their midst was: "Uh-oh."
So, job well done! Keep it up!
Author's Response: Ha ha! Thank you! \"Interesting\" is fine. I was challenged to write a morally grey story featuring a...I\'ve forgotten the word...a peripheral character. Hence Blaise!
You weren\'t supposed to know what was coming, hee hee! But I\'m glad I was able to surprise you.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Please let this not be a one-shot! I liked it a lot more than I was expecting I would.
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! I don\'t know if I\'ll continue it or not, you\'ll have to see.
Aw! I love it! So sweet...poor Snape is just "the Murderer" though. I guess I shouldn't be dwelling on him in a Remus/Tonks fic but...*sigh*
Anyway, great story!
Author's Response: Well, I had to mention it, but in a way that would be in character! I can\'t see Harry wanting to say that name if he doesn\'t have to!! Thanks for the review!
Please let this not be a one-shot. I want it to go on. I was a bit confused when it switched to all italics--was that on purpose, or did you forget to [/i] it?
Author's Response: There\'s another chapter. I don\'t know why this got marked completed. Seems to have been a bit of trouble with this and I don\'t know why. It\'ll be in Q soon!
Whoa. You are going to add another chapter, right? RIGHT?
Author's Response: Hehe. :] No, I\'m sorry; this is a one-shot. I\'ll think about it though. Thanks for reviewing!
