I'm a huge James/Lily fan. I would say shipper, but everyone knows they got together. How do you think Harry came about? What I can't stand is people writing Remus/Lily stories. Forgive me, but I think that's mean to Remus. I love Remus. I'm the world's biggest Marauder fan. Ask my sister, Stag_Flower. You simply say "Marauder," and I start giggling like the mad, fantasizing, fanatic, female that I am. However, if you say Remus loved Lily, you're saying he had his heart-broken when James married Lily. That I couldn't bear. As much as I love the idea of Remus and Tonks, I probably won't write one of those stories. Everyone knows how that story turns out. (Edit: Okay, I guess I just broke that promise. I have one in queque right now.)
I'm a short, ditzy, Christian brunette homeschooler/ social butterfly who glues her face to the computer screen like a geek every flippin' day except Sunday... because that's one of my parents rules. Oh yeah! I love my family. More than you. My best friend is my sister, Caroline. She hasn't written anything yet, but her username is Stag_Flower for future reference. My older brother, Sinclair, is a ladies' man even though he won't admit it. I'm sure he thinks my stories (the ones I haven't published yet and the ones I have) are too sappy, but he won't admit that either. My younger brother, Peyton, enjoys giving me the "Oh-my-gosh-are-you-really-that-silly" look when I giggle with Caroline whilst looking at picture of any Marauder. Well, with the exception of that Pettigrew kid. He just makes me shudder or want to take a shower.
Besides Harry Potter, I love Lost, Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, The Mark of the Lion series, The Chronicles of Narnia, Krispy Kreme donuts, pretty much any chick-flick out there, and anything written by Francine Rivers.
Oh! And I'm a Ravenclaw =D.

Tonks' world has fallen into shadow. Voldemort has returned, the Order of the Phoenix has risen, and Sirius is slowly drowning in memories and Firewhisky. Tonks needs more than determination to fight the darkness. She needs Remus.
I read Remus' journal, and I liked the limerick. Ooh, doesn't that sound nosey? I like it. I can't wait to read about Tonks' being an undercover bodyguard.
Author's Response: Tonks will get to see the future Minister in political action...whether that\'s a good thing or not is yet unknown, :D.
Awww. I wanted to read what Rufus had to say before I have to go do my science. Oh well. I'll just have to wait for the next chapter and keep myself occupied with thinking about Tonks investigating Remus. :P
Author's Response: She\'d do a thorough search and really work him over, LOL.
Summary: They say every beautiful princess gets her prince. In the wizarding world, it's true that every pureblooded princess got her Prince. Rosalind Prewett was no exception. Betrothed to Phillip Prince in the Middle Ages, Rosalind and her beloved will face many trials before they reach Happily Ever After.
100% Madame Marauder? Are you sure there isn't a lot of "The Princess Bride" in there? Well, all the references had me laughing. I was just wondering where the "Is this is a kissing book?" line was. I guess that's the "Is this going to get romantic?" part. Nice story. I love old tales!
Summary: PRE-DHWhat ultimately brought Lily and James away from their snapping and snarling matches? And what about Hagrid during his romantic trip to the mountains with his Olympe?
And Fred--is he always that confident? No Weasley nerves at all? And what happened during Harry and Ginny's lake stroll? What came next after Ron and Hermione's sweet cuddle during the funeral? Laughs and fluff!
Aww! This was awesome. I enjoyed reading all the little romances in this one story. Brilliant, honestly.
Author's Response: thank you, tori!
Summary: One-shot. Lily is getting antsy waiting for James to propose, but when he finally plans to, she almost gets killed first.
Ooh! They get married in a hospital? That's romantic. :P
Summary: A tragic accident occurs in Lily's life, causing her to turn to the only friend she has left.
Aww. That's really sweet. Good-natured bickering is the best cure for any heart-ache. ;D
Summary: Every legendary romance has a couple of rough patches here and there. Well, here's one that could just ruin a relationship forever.
Well, you've finished your chapter-fic. Can you do a sequel to this one now?
Author's Response: Actually, I\'m working on chapter nine of my H/Hr story that I started at the Same time as Just Another Love Story. So...not yet. I MIGHT in the summer/spring break.
Author's Response: Good news! I\'m working on a sequel!
A long time from now? Ahhh... that hurts.
Author's Response: I sowwy.
OH MY GOSH! I thought this was going to have a sappy ending! Write another! PLEASE! I need to read a happy ending!
Author's Response: Haha! Thank you for reviewing. I might write a sequal, might. And if so....it will be a long time from now. Thank you!
Summary: Sometimes, the most simple and unexpected gifts are the ones we appreciate the most.
Cute. I thought by some of the things you said, this would be an erroneous, cheesy little-thing, but not all. Very good.
Author's Response: Yes, I realized only afterwards that I sort of introduced it as a fluffy, cheesy one-shot... But I\'m uncapable of writing anything of the sort! Thanks!
Early Christmas morning, not a Malfoy or Weasley was stirring...except Draco and Ginny, who met for Christmas breakfast and ended up making a meal of Christmas kisses.
*A Tale of Two Matchmakers holiday outtake*
Woohoo! I don't know why the idea of sucking someone's fingers cleaning is so dang appealing to me... but it is. Draco's on the top of my hot list!
Author's Response: It depends on whose mouth is touching your fingers....someone you love, (or characters you love :D)....it\'s a good thing...anyone you don\'t...euwww!
Summary: Christmas Eve never came so strangely to Sirius or Remus.
Prompt, "O Christmas Tree!"; Author, stardust; House, Hufflepuff.
Aww. That's like sad and pretty. Kind of like The Violin Teacher. In both, you seemed to know how to make simply things relevantly symbollic. Congrats.
Author's Response: Thank you twice, House Elf, for this review and its mention of \"Violin\". I really appreciate it. I fear me I never get away from slightly sad tales - I think it\'s because of Remus. I know you\'ll understand that. =)
Summary: Lily Evans has a secret admirer, but there's no way in hell he'll come any closer with James Potter hanging around. Finally, he convinces her to meet him in Hogsmeade, but Lily still isn't too sure of his character...
Ooh! This was very good. Really. I like your reasoning behind it all. "I had to show you that I wasn’t just a fool, Lily, that I wasn’t just someone who was crazy about you with nothing to back it up." I really enjoyed this story. I'm going to go look at your others.
Author's Response: Oh, thankyou! The recipient had a small comment about L/J before i revealed it was me - so I thought I should put some justification in!
Summary: The Burrow is a place in which many strange things happen, but ambushing someone at the window? Someone shows up unannounced at the Burrow, only to find a stranger there. The meeting isn't entirely jovial. Charlie/Tonks.
Perfect! I've been wishing for a good Tonks/Other Character. Remus is good, but he gets old after awhile. That was good. She really should have ended up with a Weasley.
Author's Response: Thank you! I love this little review. *squishes* I like the idea of a Weasley, but i also love Remus!
Summary: Apprentice to a reclusive Welsh Potions Master, Severus finds that while his craft might be a subtle, exact science, love is not, and hiding a secret is more complicated than brewing glory.
Sequel to More than a Feeling
*Chapter 10 is 'A Wedding and a Funeral'*
I'm going to be using "Pub lwc" a lot now. Nice begining of a story. I can't wait to see what the plot of this one will be.
Author's Response: You know you\'re one of my favourite people, don\'t you! You always know just the right thing to say in a review to make me smile ear-to-ear! Ta, Thanks!
I love how you make "God Rest Ye Merry Hippogriffs!" an actual wizarding song and not just Sirius' own version of the traditional hymn like the rest of us uncreative people.
I've noticed Severus has a hard time saying, "I love you." He has roundabout ways of saying. It's kinda sweet.
Ooh! My best friend has a ring with the celtic love knot. Of course, I think it was something she bought herself. There's definitely no romantic meaning behind it, since she's of the same mind as me: no dating until we're waaaaay older.
Oh, I'm so glad Eileen knows his secret now. For some reason, it even makes me feel better.
Author's Response: At least his mum knows he has someone to look after him and most importantly, to love him, instead of him being isolated, alone and growing ever more bitter against the world, LOL. I do think Snape wouldn\'t say I love you as easily as other men. He\'s uncomfortable admitting that he cares so much. Doesn\'t mind showing it, though! ^_~ Good for you waiting to date...you\'ll appreciate it later when you look back at your GPA. :D
Dangit! Kerichi, you have developed the nasty habit of producing cliff-hangers. Tsk, tsk. It makes me anxious during waiting, but it does make me excited when I finally see an update.
Eris has nice fantasies. The best part is that Severus helps her out with those. Ha. She must really love him to give up her future for him. She can't even go into public. In a future is she going to get a little edgy and want to do something for herself?
Author's Response: Thanks, but I can\'t tell! :D You could call this the \'honeymoon\' stage of the relationship. She does really love him. I always think of that \'one thing\' song...if I gave it all away for one thing, wouldn\'t that be something...
The Picture of Dorian Gray? I heard a lecture on that recently, although I have not read it. I'd love to though. Do you recommend it? I don't care if it has a depressing ending. Heck, I just finished Frankenstein, and if that's not depressing, I dont know what is. But I think it's the context, thoughts, and journey that count.
Does Eris' brother share her same parentage, or is Eris Danica's only mistake?
Author's Response: Alleged mistake. Not confirmed...but yeah, she is. :D Excellent book but depressing throughout, especially when he has a romance that might \'save\' him, but doesn\'t, sigh.
Ooohh.... Father/son showdown! I don't know whether to be nervous or just.... nervous. Ha. I'm very verbose tonight. Nah, I'm just tired from staying up late. Anyway, Scrooge is the perfect character for Severus. Allergic to cameras. That's funny. My dad's a bigtime photographer, and he had a guy come up to him and blatantly tell him that cameras where an invasion of privacy. If he had sneered, I'd have called him Slytherin.
Author's Response: I like the American Indian (at least I think it\'s the American Indian) excuse that photographs trap the soul. I bet your dad felt like a tabloid reporter trying to get a shot of Brangelina. :D
"And of course Bellatrix starts with B that rhymes with T, and that stands for Trouble!" Well, that's a rather roundabout way of getting that message across. How many chapters is this fic going to be? Will we get to see Snape turn spy for Dumbledore? Which reminds me, do you think Snape was really bad when he killed Dumbledore?
Author's Response: I was having fun with a line from The Music Man, :D, and this fic will only be ten chapters. It goes through his Apprenticeship. Then there\'s a follow-up one shot when he\'s on the brink of becoming a Death Eater. So no, I don\'t write about him turning spy, but I don\'t think he was being evil when he killed Dumbledore. I think they planned it that way, or rather Dumbledore in his Gandalf-ness planned it, Severus reluctantly agreed to it, and at the end of HBP, I would not have been surprised if Albus would\'ve said, \"Fly, you fools!\"
