Bio:
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.

For those of you who want to email me: darcy-lover@hotmail.com. I will only respond to emails and block you if you tried to message me. Sorry. House rule.

Date: 08/21/06 Title: Chapter 1: Sirius in the Moonlight

I like seeing this side of Sirius. He's normally so sarcastic and such a smart-alec. I mean, in other stories you'd never really see him with "unashamed tears." I like that he really can be serious with Cami.

Author's Response: I do see him with a \'Black-streak\' sarcastic and \'Slytherin\' at times, lol, but underneath it all, he\'s a sweetie! (oh no, now I\'ve got Gwen Stefani singing \'you\'re really lovely, underneath it all\' in my head! :D)

 

Without You by MoonysMistress
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: Is there a such thing as a poem-fic? If so, this is an example of one: a prose-poem based on the song "Without You" from RENT, a glimpse into the minds of Tonks and Remus as they both fight their feelings for one another. Song lyrics interspersed. Part 6 of the "I Should Tell You" series.

Whoa... that was brilliant. I enjoyed it immensely. It seems like exactly everything they really would feel.

Author's Response: *wipes brow* I achieved my goal of staying in-character, then! At least for this, I guess. I do appreciate this review, and doff my cap to you in deference. *doffs cap*

Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 333]

Wow! It's completed! Will the one-shot be about their July trip? I'm glad the letters weren't about James' parents dying, like I thought it was. You know, over winter break, I wrote this Sirius romance. I wrote it the first time I read the fifth book. I've been working on it ever since. Well, after reading this story, I don't think it would be a good idea to post. There's way to many similiarites! Besides, yours is way better.

Author's Response: Yes, the first one shot is a romantic journey in more ways than one! :) I\'m sorry to hear about your story. You could always email it to me. I\'d love to read it and might have ideas about how to change any similarities. Just an idea, and thank you for the compliment! *hugs*

*sniff* Holy crap. You nearly had me crying in this chapter. Oh gosh! Oh come next update, come! You're needed! For now, I'll just have to make up the ending in my head. Hmm. That will make for an interesting fantasy.

Author's Response: Feel free to make up an ending...then you can see how close you came! :D There are still a couple of chapters left in this story, so a lot can happen. ^_~

Oh my gosh... my mouth's literally watering. Hoooly cow. Do we get to hear about the 'chest snog'? Or will that be another gingerbread house scene that we hear about later?

Author's Response: That\'s a scene left up to the imagination in a T fic, LOL. More kissing later, though!

 
Reviewer: A House Elf Signed
Date: 01/06/07 Title: Chapter 26: New Year's Resolutions

You like Georgette Heyer? Oh, you're definitely my favorite author now! Of all her books, which was your favorite? Did you like A Convenient Marriage? My mom read it. Said it wasn't worth my time since I only like happy-ending romances. My favorite's Powder and Patch... or maybe it's Patch and Powder. Either way, I've read it twice and reread the ending all the time. Kind of like your stories. :P Speaking of which, this isn't going to be one of your sequel stories, is it? It would be kind of cool if it was. Sirius is awesome. Especially your version of him.

Author's Response: I can\'t pick a favorite, but now I want to go read a few over again. :D No, I don\'t like non-happy endings. This won\'t have a traditional sequel, just a \'after Hogwarts\' fluffy one shot and another, after Azkaban, not-so-fluffy Sirius returns one.

Author's Response: Even the angst-with-the-romance one will have a happy ending, though! :)

Aww! Okay. There. I hugged Sirius for you. Actually... I did more than that... uh... anyway! I don't know if he's cheered up but the fact that you got an update in RIGHT before they closed the queque makes me happy.

Author's Response: Did you read the \'fine print\' on the closing note? There are ways to sneak wip chaps in, ho ho ho. :D

Date: 01/02/07 Title: Chapter 25: The Unexpected Visitors

This is so cool! I'm liking seeing so many things that come later in your RL/NT story. I'm kind of glad that James knows now.

Author's Response: There are a lot of similarities (okay, Sirius\' personality is identical, lol) in Semi Charmed Life and the R/T fics, but they run parallel in different dimensions of the Potterverse. It\'s like the film Sliding Doors except in this story, Sirius is with Rosmerta and in the others, he\'s with Tonks\' friend Cami and never loved anyone before her although he certainly had several Miss Right Nows, heh.

As for James knowing, friends can help cover, can\'t they? ^_~

 
Reviewer: A House Elf Signed
Date: 01/12/07 Title: Chapter 27: A Tangled Web

So, what were you doing at familyfun.com?

CRAP! Not another cliffhanger! Oh my gosh, I'm going to die. How can you do that? Can you pretty please with pineapples on top and strawberry syrup us that "begging" you did over Christmas break to get the next chapter in pronto? Tori desperately needs it. Come on. I want to see a... "pivotal" chapter. :P

So... remind me, how did Remus know about Sirius' pen-friend? Until you tell me, I'll just assume it's because he's intuitive, logical, sensiblie, smart... oh, I'm gushing. I just love Remus! Even in his 7th year self. Although... I think Dorcas the Dork should lay her hands off Tonks' man. Speaking of which, I think it would be cool to have a story about Tonks' Hogwarts years. Although... she is with that skankin' Evan...

Author's Response: I was looking for Witch Guide crafts! :D I\'m not a crafty person, so I had to search for the right project for the chap.

At the end of ch 17, Sirius got caught sneaking out of the dorm, and in 18, Remus figured out his pen friend is his girlfriend by Sirius letting slip that the girls at school are \"dead boring compared to...\" At the end of their conversation, Remus said, “I won’t tell Prongs or Wormtail if you don’t want me to,”....Sirius should know better than to believe Peter--who could have said he overheard them in the dorm, or figured it out because of the way Sirius\' \'friend\' wrote every day, yet chose to blame Remus, the rat--but his own issues clouded his judgment, sigh.

Dorcas the Dork won\'t get any on-screen kissing time, lol, and between you and me, she doesn\'t get much off-screen either. ^_~

Tonks at Hogwarts would be too angsty, I think. Unless I could find a way to have humour with Snape, heh.

 
Reviewer: A House Elf Signed
Date: 01/22/07 Title: Chapter 29: All About Trust

I tried imagining the beginning scene to this chapter so many times when I was bored on my trip to Cincinnati. I got it all right except that she said it first. I totally had him doing it everytime. I'm glad she didn't freak out about the dog-thing... although, she knew the man and the dog, unlike Cami.

Author's Response: Exactly! In the R/T stories, Cami had a bit of a handicap, not knowing Sirius at the same time as Snuffles. :D I\'m glad that it was a surprise that she said it first! I really think Sirius needed one person in his life to say I love you first. Sigh.

 

Promise of a Spring Moon by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 562]

Summary:

April showers bring May...hassles? Bridesmaid blues and big trouble from small favours complicate Tonks' life when all she wants is to bring her love for Remus into full bloom.

You have no idea how anxious I am to read your version of the sixth book. I want to know how you're going to tie it all in. I can see you're planting insecurities for Remus. Ooh! I can't wait. I don't mind if you drop all your stories and only focus on this one. I want to know what you're going to do with our Remus and Tonks!

Author's Response: I\'m halfway through Sirius\' Semi Charmed Life, so I hope readers would mind if I dropped it, :D, but I promise to the 5th and 6th....and even 7th....books justice!

Date: 08/15/06 Title: Chapter 11: Waiting for Spring

“How do you get your robes to billow like that?”

Thank you! They didn't sleep together. That really does make me happy. I love it when couples wait for marriage. I find it so much more romantic. Can you please have them wait? And has Remus ever made love to a woman before or will she be his first as well?

Author's Response: I do think the world would be full of happier couples if they waited, : ), but I can\'t say Remus and Tonks will wait for marriage. They don\'t have any religious convictions holding them back, just Tonks\' reservations, that she needs something more than love. They won\'t be each other\'s first, but they will be the last, and true love of the other\'s life, and when they finally do make love, I hope you think like me...well, they\'re married in the eyes of God! :D

Scotland? Ooooh... sounds fun! I wanna go too! Oh, wait. I'll be a fifth-wheel, won't I? Maybe I'll just set a trap for Tonks, then Remus will be all mine. ^_^

Author's Response: You will be mine, you will be mine, all mine...why the Rolling Stones came to mind, I have no clue. That scenario would be hilarious in a Mary Sue parody, though. MS traps Tonks and goes for Remus, becoming frustrated when he doesn\'t forget his true love and fall for her. Like, he\'s old, poor, and dangerous and she\'s beautiful and perfect. Shouldn\'t he be grateful for her attention? LOL at the thought.

Did you know you're the fourth most prolific author? Quite an honor, I must say.

I have something I need to tell you:

I must go. You write your stories too well, and my imagination has run away with me. I can't concentrate any more. All I think about are the romances and characters you've created. On Sunday, it's so hard to not dream of Remus and listen to my preacher.

I'm taking a break until I can know without a doubt I can read your stories and not spend a whole week waiting for an update. I can't even focus on prayer. It's not all your stories, but I don't think I can fix it if I read and reread your stories as much as I do. You're like a drug, Kerichi.

In Matthew 5, Jesus says, "If your right arm causes you to sin, chop it off and throw it away." This will surely be as bad as amputation, but I'll come back soon. I'm dying to know how you're going to right the fifth and sixth book. I'll have a special folder in my Inbox for all your updates, and one day, I'll go back, read all your updates I missed, andreview like crazy.

You're still my favorite author.

Jane / Brokenhearted / A House Elf

P.S. I posted this review under the whole "Lover's Moon" series, but I saw that you hadn't responded to any review from that area, so I reposted it here. Teehee.

Author's Response: Hi Jane! MN doesn\'t allow authors to respond to series reviews, for some reason, or I would\'ve done so, believe me! :D

Wow, what mixed feelings I have! I\'m happy my stories capture your imagination, but sad that you\'re finding it hard to pray. 1 Corinthians 10:23 says \"Everything is permissable, but not everything is beneficial.\" If you need to stop reading to \"set your mind on things above\", you should do just that. As in Phillipians 1:6, (I\'m) \"confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.\"

I\'ll look forward to your return, but until then, grace and peace, Kerichi

I see Bubbles isn't that shy about her abstinence. Oh, I thought you should know that a few months ago when I first stubbled upon and fell in love with your stories, I named a friend of mine Bubbles because their characters were similar. It's stuck and now everyone in Kentucky and West Virginia know her as Bubbles.

What is chocolate a substitute for?

Blofeld's freaky. He's got to be single with absolutely no prospects.

How would you feel if I admitted that I also find Evan "pretty"? He makes me think of Draco Malfoy. :P

Dangit. I forgot. Who's Rita? Is she a prune? and if she's not then what's odd about her being drunk? Who's the date with? Oh! Jerry, right? Ha. At least, I remember that.

Author's Response: Yay for you having a pal nicknamed Bubbles! Can\'t say what chocolate\'s a substitute for...every reader has to decide for themself, LOL.

Author's Response: I have a soft spot for pretty Slytherin boys....sheesh, I have one for the not-so-pretty ones too (Snape, not Mouldy-shorts, heh) Rita\'s the cousin who stood on the bar to recite her \'I hate\' poem, until Tonks talked her down, and wrote a love poem to Remus! ^_^

Sorry about the double reviewing, but you did say reviews made you happy (I agree. There's nothing like getting an email that informs you that someone's read your story and told you what you think). I also want to say that I'm uber happy that you've already put another paragraph in. ^_^

Author's Response: Never apologise- reviews are beautiful things. ^_^ I\'ve written up to ch 15, so as soon as the next chap validates, I\'m sticking another into the queue!

 
Reviewer: A House Elf Signed
Date: 08/15/06 Title: Chapter 11: Waiting for Spring

LOL! Sorry, but I don't think I'll ever see as you do in that matter. You may not, but I do have religious "restrictions." Oh, well. That's sad. But I'm glad you've made them wait this long. Sirius and Cami were somewhat disappointing. At least he loved her whole-heartedly before they did anything. I know that Remus and Tonks love each other though.

Why do you personally believe in remaining sexually abstinent until marriage?

Author's Response: I may sneak in Bible verses as Gran, but although I do think \'True Love Waits\', I can\'t impose that view on Tonks and Remus. (or Cami and Sirius) It would be OOC. The most I can do is have them \'Wait for True Love\' :D

The Things We Do For Love by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 79]

Summary:

After her first kiss with Ron, Hermione asks Ginny for advice. What follows is a lesson in the things we do for love.

This three part story was written pre-HBP, when the future looked, if not exactly rosy, at least not that dreadful shade of Lavender that coloured the Potterverse in the sixth book.

Miss Marple! Awesome. I love her. She's my favorite of every detective (and I'm an avid, avid mystery fan), and I've only been able to see two movies with her. I think I'll try some books.

Author's Response: Happy day after Christmas! I hope Father Christmas gave you what you asked for (and didn\'t tell you the equivalent of \'you\'ll shoot your eye out\' ) I love Miss Marple too, but have you ever read M.C. Beaton? Hamish Macbeth is a constable in the Highlands solving village mysteries in a \'Death of\' series and her other, amateur detective is Agatha Raisin. Both are fab, if you\'re looking for books to read! If you like medieval mysteries, Ellis Peters and Candace Robb....okay, I\'ll stop.... :D
