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.

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'*
Of course, all women are part Hufflepuff! I can't believe it took him that long. Are you not going to do the story from Eris' point of view in this story?
I watched Sense and Sensibility on Sunday, and watching Alan Rickman play such a nice role made me anxious for this update. Seeing a Star Trek episode with a man who's partner follows him around in the form of a cat didn't help.
I'm really glad that Severus feel for the "miniature Machiavelli." I was going to cry myself, if he didn't.
Author's Response: Severus is smart, but his IQ is waayyy higher than his EQ, lol. This story is all Severus\' pov. He has his soft moments, but in a Slytherin way. :D I don\'t think I\'ve seen that Star Trek episode. Do you remember the name? I\'d like to see it!
The name was something like "Assignment: Earth" or something of that nature. He's always talking to the cat. You get a brief glimpse of her at the end when she's trying to get Teri Garr to leave her partner alone.
Author's Response: I\'ll have to look that one up, sounds fun, and I like Teri Garr! :D
Summary: After an initial bad impression of the new year, Lily realizes that maybe it isn't as bad as it seems.
Aww. I'm glad your writers' block broke. This was cute/fun.
Summary: After going on one date, Lily breaks if off with James, fearful of how he once acted. James decides to move on. But when James goes away and Lily doesn't see him, she realizes what she has and her fear becomes losing James. Her only hope is that he ties a yellow ribbon around the tree.
Nice story. My sister read it recommeded it. Very sweet.
Author's Response: Thank you!
My affinity to the journal compels me to keep it at hand. I, too, am rather shabby, and yet there are pages of my life still unwritten.... Remus reflects on his life and love for Tonks in a companion fic to Moonlight and Shadow that parallels chapter nine onward.
Aww. I love reading about Remus. He's so wonderful. How kind of him of to show Tonks the color. Pretty clever to put that information in here, so that anyone who wants the whole story would have to read this. I wish that tattoo was real. It would be pretty helpful, not to mention, pretty.
Author's Response: I feel like a tv show that uses cliffhangers to get audience to tune in again! If doing it is wrong, I don\'t want to be right, lol. Henna fades, but while it lasts, what fun it would be!
Oh, okay, I'm more sympathetic to his position now. I just hope he can work through this soon. I think you're the first person to suggest Remus is also the wolf. What made you think of such a thing?
Author's Response: I re-read PoA, the chapter in which he\'s telling Harry how when he was with his friends, his mind seemed to be less wolfish....how \'exciting possiblilities were open to us\' and they\'d laugh about the near misses afterwards and forget the dangers in the excitement of planning the next month\'s adventure. I think he remembered some or all of those adventures, that he got some enjoyment out of being a werewolf...he just never wanted to admit it, would rather think of the wolf as separate. Sigh.
Aww! Perfect. I was just going to ask for something similar to this. Not only does Remus think, talk, and look sexy... he writes sexy too! My kind of man.
Author's Response: Merci! He\'s every woman\'s kind of man...except the stupid ones, afraid werewolves are all Dark. :D
Summary: Penelope Clearwater has a schoolgirl crush on Charlie Weasley, but he doesn't even notice. Will his little brother be able to make her forget him, or will she continue to hold a flame for the dragon keeper?
Oh, that's great! His obsession for Penelope at the end was very realistic. I've felt that way, before, you know, checking every head in an extremely crowded place, hoping you'll see their head. That was really cool.
Author's Response: That part definitely comes from my own life. Like whoa. I\'m glad you liked it. :)
Summary: As Charlie prepares the dragons for the first task, Minerva pays a surprise visit. However, when Charlie gets Minerva to drink Firewhisky... oops! Will Minerva give Charlie a detention? Or will she just laugh?
I really liked this story. A funness to it, eh? I just think it should have been in the 'humor' section. The whole Charlie/Minerva is a bit of a turn-off.
Summary: After the war, Snape is on sabbatical and Remus is filling in for DADA. Wading through scrolls of assignments, he begins to suspect one particular essay is wifely mischief managed.
HAHAAA! That was great. First I was worried he'd cheat, then I knew it was Tonks, then I was scared she'd found out, then... oh egads. Brilliant. Love it.
Author's Response: LOL, Sorry to mess with your mind there, but it turned out alright in the end! Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Um... what was the answer? *grabs your arms and shakes you* What was the flippin' answer?! Come on!
Author's Response: *shifty eyes* I dunno, Ginny didn\'t tell me ;)
Summary: ‘She told me I could have anything. I asked her for one hour. One entire hour where she would be completely mine. I only hope no one will ever find out, not even her.’
Clever. I didn't guess it. I figured it was Polyjuice, but I thought he was using Hermione to be someone else.
Author's Response: That was a close guess! The fact that this is in the Draco/Hermione category leads people to think that the \'she\' is naturally Hermione. Thank you for your review!
Summary: The first in a series of oneshots following Remus' relationship with a girl whom he has know for years. How will Remus cope with the new feelings he is experiencing? When the opportunity to take things further arises will he take it, or shy away? How will a chance encounter affect the character we love?
"You can always close your eyes to the things you don't want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel."
Well... um... it was kind of unresolved... I mean, I love Remus, but there was not too much plot, and you're not clear on the tenses, the past, and the future. Way vague. Sorry. I'm just not a big fan of that ending.
Author's Response: Sorry you didn\'t like it, i did have trouble with the tenses when i first wrote it. These are actually meant to be a series of oneshots (the next one is now up) highlighting the main events in their relationship. I only really wrote it for myself but a friend persuaded me to pout it up here so i understand you don\'t know all the little details that are floating around my head or that my friend has to endure. Thanks for reading anyway.
Summary: Ginevra Malfoy had been waiting for almost a full year. Her husband was away on business - the kind one did not discuss until it was completed. Her two daughters were her life while he was gone and she had no clue when she would ever see him again. She *hoped* she would see him again.
Follow her into the night that changed their lives forever.
This was such a cute story. Or rather sweet. I never thought Draco could make a good dad! I'm glad he didn't take after Lucius. Although, I was just wondering why in the beginning of the story you call her "Ginevra Weasley" when she's married?
Author's Response: Oopsy, I thought I responded to everyone. I feel terrible for not responding here! In answer to your question, I used her maiden name simply because I wanted to keep the pair a secret in any way that I could. In the end, I had to mark the \"D/G\" box and all thoughts of surprise went out the window, though I never did correct the name thing. Apparently a lot of people notice it and then question me about it so I may someday correct it. For now, I don\'t think it is hurting anything.\r\n\r\nThank you very much for reviewing and I am sorry this took so ungodly long for me to respond to. \r\n\r\n ~Nicole/NikkiSue
Summary: This one-shot takes place the day after Bellatrix Lestrange killed Sirius Black. My OC, Remy Sluefur, an Auror and member of the Order of the Phoenix, was once Sirius Black's girlfriend. In this story, she mourns her lost lover and has some flashbacks.
Dangit! I knew Sirius had to have left a heart-broken woman behind. I was just hoping I wouldn't like her as much. At least, they got to see each other again, right?
Summary: Susan Bones and Draco Malfoy have a game going on, and Susan is sick of it. But once she overreacts, will it ruin her "friendship" with Draco? SB/DM
That was great! Really! I applaud you! That is totally something I can actually see Draco doing. Applause for Gemma Hawk!
Author's Response: *squeeness* I\'m so happy that I finally got Draco in character!! Thank you! You just brightened my day :)
Summary: Remus comes across a surprise on the way back from a late night outing with the marauders. With his friends encouragement, he decides to try and tackle his problems head on. Sequel to Feelings of the Heart, please read that one first.
There you go! Sorry for being somewhat rough on your last story, but I hadn't read the ending yet! This is great. It sounds realistically like the kind of relationship Remus would have to have in his Hogwarts years. We obviously see his reluctance with Tonks, and she's the one who has to speak out. It makes sense that Hayley would have to. Well, done. Let me know if you do anymore. This was a very good story.
Author's Response: Thanks. I\'m trying to submit the next one but the email i recieved from the mod was really confusing. I think I might have to put them into one story. *shrugs* we\'ll see, and thanks again for reviewing.
Summary: One-Shot. James/Lily's First Kiss
As far as I remember, Ginny has never expressed a desire to become a Healer. I'd try to look up in the quote in the sixth book, but in this case, it would actually be a lack of quote. Nice story by the way. I thought the idea was nice. It was slow and not like random or overly emotional like some of mine. :P The only think that could use some work was your descriptions and wording. Otherwise, this was a very fun, factual story.
Author's Response: Oookay thank you. I appreciate it! THANKS!
Summary: A little breath of magic and we roll the dice... On holiday with the woman he loves, Sirius finds his biggest little fantasy has turned into reality.
Sequel to Semi Charmed Life
*The concluding, post-Azkaban story, Far Away, for Far too Long, can be found in the Romance/OP category.*
Te amo? It's rather surprising in how many languages that means "I love you." Latin's my favorite though. I'm not only biased because I'm learning it but because Remus speaks it! Oh, everything comes back to him, doesn't it? And I'll bet anything that saudades ends up in "Far Away, for Far too Long." I'll go read it now to check.
Author's Response: If you learn it, you\'re a better linguist than me...not hard, that, since I took two years of Latin and didn\'t retain much more than a few phrases! :D You\'d win big if you bet big, heh. Thanks for going on to read the next story!
Summary: The Prisoner of Azkaban has escaped, returning to Hogsmeade for more than his godson. Sirius comes to reclaim the woman he left behind.
*Follows the Marauder Era stories Semi Charmed Life and A Charmed Life*
It's comforting to know the author's as much of a sap as her devoted readers. As with most beloved series and books, it's a bittersweet thing to read the end. I guess I'll just have to dwell on this ending whenever I began to miss Sirius and Cami.
I don't think sending you my Sirius story is a good idea. I'll just us some of the ideas in any other story I write. Besides, my girl ends up dying while Sirius is in Azkaban. I like your version better.
Ha! Saudades was in it!
Well, thank you for a lovely series. Amo tuae fabulae.
Author's Response: Aw, no, I\'m gonna tear up thinking how you killed her off! Yes, I am a romantic sap. I don\'t mind the end of this story so much since I can leave Sirius on Flores with Rosmerta (and Buckbeak! :D) and imagine him happy, loved, and most importantly...alive.
