To Write: It isn't simply an infinitive; it's the way authors allow their hearts to bleed onto paper, freeing their emotions as their soul pours into their work. It isn't purely a phrase. The two words, the seven letters, are the description of everything within an author. A writer, compared to an author, are worlds apart. Whereas a writer is deeply passionate over their works of art, an author is one who is determined not only to succeed but is willing to bestow their own heart into their fiction. Fully willing to fall in love repeatedly with the characters and stories our eyes see, an author's job to compose new worlds for fellow imaginations to visit is never complete.
To write is to release one's senses as the door to vivid imagination is opened wide. Showing with words, drawing the pictures for one's mind's eye to view, pulling you ever-so-slightly into our worlds of fiction: this is every author's aspiration.
I am not only a writer. I am an author.

"As you undoubtedly know
All of this belongs to Jo" -- haha, perfect. Anyway, great poem. When one is as talented as you, they don't have to be told how great of a writer they are. :-P Awesome job.

Author's Response: wow, thanks! =)
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
One word: WOW!
Oh. My. Goodness. I had chills when I read the last sentence of this chapter. Everything is just... perfect. The ending to the story, the theme of the story. I love it!
This is just... the greatest story I think I have ever read. I cannot wait until your next story comes out.
Summary: In every story, there are missing scenes: smaller stories that don't make it into the main plot, but that subconsciously happen all the same. Harry Potter is no different — behind the scenes were the makings of a love that surprised us all.
This is seriously one of the best stories on here in my opinion. Great characterization, and great story. I loved it. Keep up the excellent writing!
Summary: The war is over. But sometimes victory comes at a terrible price.
It was forever night time in Hermione’s world... Her world, beautiful and dazzling, once filled with happiness, something uniquely her own. It was now strangely blank, like the empty pages of a book, longing to be filled with stories, and adventures, only to be left eternally untouched. Hermione’s world was only filled with darkness.
PLEASE REVEIW! IM THE ONLY ONE THATS REVEIWED SO FAR. YOU REVEIW FOR ME, I REVEIW FOR YOU, AND AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL!
Aww, good job. I love the emotions that you displayed for Hermione in this. I really enjoyed it.
Author's Response: Thanks so much!

Wow, really well written. The point of view was very different, but it definitely made it more dramatic. I really enjoyed it. Keep up the EXCELLENT writing.
Summary: A short (as always!) poem on the killing curse. My first poem for a long while so please r/r.
Loved it. 10/10!
Author's Response: Yay! A serial reviewer! Thankyou!
A kiss is not just a kiss. After a disastrous Valentine's date with Cho, Harry finds himself alone with Luna and discovers what a kiss should be. Humour and Romance in a story that started with canon and went What If?
Oh, I really liked this piece. I'm a huge Harry/Luna shipper, and when I saw that you had written one, I was so happy. Your style and characterization are really nice, and it's so refreshing to read something with so much description. Well done. I love it.
Author's Response: Thank you, and I admire you for not jumping ship after book 6. I\'d like to believe the HBP text influenced Harry to go for Ginny, but I think it was just coincidence, sigh.

Summary: Merope Gaunt is alone and in love with a man she knows she can never have back. In her loneliness she writes a letter that is never to be delivered to Tom Riddle.
Reviews would be greatly appreciated! Constructive critism is definately welcome!
Aww, very sad. I think this is probably the first Merope fanfic that I've ever read, and it really held my attention for the whole letter. You wrote Merope very well; I really enjoyed your take on her character.
I think I saw a character banner for Merope once, and the main quote was "Obsession" or something like that. I guess that's the way that I've always imagined her when reading anything about her, and that's exactly what you did with this. Well, I sort of got off my subject there, but I guess I just want to say... Well done! This was beautiful, and the way that you expressed that she was completely and wholly in love with Tom was so believable. I loved it.
Author's Response: Aw Shucks! (lol...) Thanks though for such a long and kind review! I\'m glad you enjoyed this!
