Bio:
Hello there, I'm Ashley. I'm just your normal, every day Harry Potter obsessed sixteen year old. One day I hope to become a writer of historical fiction, my personal favorite, but until then I will remain happy with the joys of fanfiction. Happy reading!


Update 2/17/08:
I have now finished Lovers in the Moonlight, indeed an accomplishment, and am basically just doing random one-shots I have stored up. If anyone wants any more LitM, please suggest a good one-shot idea, or maybe something longer, and I will be glad to write it! I'm just really stumped on Irene right now. Other than that, I have two full chapter stories and their series stored up in my mind, which will be written this summer. Happy reading, everyone!

Uncle Fred Calls Him Dick by MagEd
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 1510]

Summary: Past Featured Story2008 QSQ Awards Runner-up for Best Post-Hogwarts

Harry defeated Voldemort. Harry married Ginny. Harry and Ginny had five children. Harry disappeared. My name is Lily Potter, and this is the story of what happened when my father returned after six years missing to find my mother about to re-marry. This is the story of myself, my crazy family, and most of all, this is the story of my parents and the man who tried to come between them. (pre-Deathly Hallows)

OMGOMGOMG! You have no idea how excited I was when I saw that this was updated! I haven't been on MNFF for like the past week, since I was currently working on my story that's in the que, but thank Merlin I ran through my favourite list! Whoo-hoo! Okay, please update fast, or there will be problems lol! *Steals Harry and refuses to give him back unless updates come quickly* :] ♥

Author's Response: I\'ve already finished writing the next chapter, I just need to edit it one last time, making a few polishing changes and put it in queue. Thanks for the review!

Wow...this story is so strong. You captured the characters feelings so beautifully. The deepness of it is almost heartbreaking. The last line pulls at my heart in an almost evil way. Fabulous job! If you get the chance, please read my one-shot. More will come! ♥

Author's Response: Thank you for such a kind review! I\'m glad you liked it, the last line especially.

Whoohooo! There's going to be a SEQUEL?! Yes! Great job on this chapter, it really explained a lot as to why Ginny was acting so out-of-character! I can't wait for the last chapter!

Author's Response: Yes, there is going to be a sequel! I tried to make the explanation of how Dick ever came to be in her life as real as possible, believable even without the potion. Thanks for the review!

Date: 01/31/07 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8: Aunt Hannah is One Smart Muggle

Oh my God. Fabulous as always. Love this story with all my heart and sit on tenderhooks waiting for an update. I loved the part where it said that Harry had learned Legimency. And I cheered loudly when he punched Dick in the face. Ginny got a few thumbs up as well for slapping him. I cannot wait until Ginny finally reveals the strong woman she really is to us readers. Also, just to let you know, this is the only Harry/Ginny story that I like, even though I don't ship Harry/Hermione, I still don't like Ginny. I think it might stem from jealousy, ha-ha. Ok well please update update update! :] ♥

Author's Response: Well I\'m glad I was able to kindle even a little affection for Harry/Ginny in you. I\'m glad you like it so much, thanks for the review!

Date: 06/14/07 Title: Chapter 13: Chapter 13: Lily's Perfect Ending

Okay, I have one thing to say: I HATE this no sequel business! Come on, you could write about Lily's year(s) at Hogwarts! Or maybe about just one year, here seventh year or something like that! You cannot do that to us! We've been dedicated, yeah? Time to do your part! LOL!


Yeah, for a second there, I thought that Lily had died. I sat in shock staring at the screen before some sense came over me and I scrolled down some. =]


I think I would have to choose the part where Lily first meets the 'stag'. That is really my favourite part, because I was dying to know when Harry would reveal himself.


Also, I never liked Next Generation fics. I always thought they were dull compared to the original, and none of the characters were written well. This is the only one I have ever liked. Well, in this case, more liked loved!


The Draco Malfoy part was a bit unexpected, to tell you the truth. I did not see that coming at all. But Harry's inscription just said it all.


Finally, at the end of this very long review, I would like to congratulate you. You are a fantastic author, one whose skills I envy greatly. I hope you go on to write many more stories!


All the best,


Ashley/beauty and brains

Author's Response: Thank you so much, I love reviews like this! I was a little afraid when I made it look like Lily had died that people would be so upset they wouldn\'t keep reading to find out she didn\'t die! That stag scene was good, wasn\'t it? Thanks again :)

 

True Love Lost by nuw255
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 34]

Summary: ONE SHOT: A woman sits alone in a cell, her thoughts consumed by her pain and loss. Finally, she gets a chance to face the one who took the life of her one true love.

The dripping had been constant from the moment she had been locked away; she suspected that her captors had placed her in this specific cell in hopes that it would drive her mad.

They needn’t have bothered. The only man she had ever loved was dead. She was already mad.


This is definitely not my usual style, so I’d love to know what you think.

Wow...I don't think there are words to express how deep this story runs. At first, I wondered if maybe it was one of the main characters talking about Harry, or Ronald. The farther it got along though, I seemed to have a feeling this would go into a dark witch character. This was a completely awesome job on a not-much-read-about love. Fabulous!

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I really think the bad guys are capable of really loving their families, although that doesn\'t redeem them from their atrocities. It\'s weird to feel sorry for Bellatrix, yet at the same time, it seems so appropriate.

 

Summary: What do you get when your challenge is to write a mystery/humor fic that must include the following:



A Crumple-Horned Snorkack


Ron and Dumbledore as suspects


Luna sneaking into the Gryffindor common room


A detention


Luna accidentally solving the mystery




Well, you get The Investigations of Luna Lovegood. Luna has finally acquired some kind of proof to prove that the Crumple-Horned Snorkack is real...but it goes missing. Now, poor Luna must fight and put on her detective hat to...well...not really. She just stumbles across clues to help her find the missing proof. But what she does during that time, is so Luna Lovegood.

I cried. Beautifully written. ♥

Author's Response: Thank you! Sorry that i made you cry though! i seem to like killing off people right now, i dont know why! Thank you for the review! :-)

 

Summary: The Order of the Phoenix and the Death Eaters are locked in battle over a highly important magical artifact known to most as Voldy's Deathpants, in bold letters like that. However, they go about battle in a, er, highly unusual way-- a Quidditch match!

Probably the silliest thing that's ever appeared on this site, featuring highly OOC behaviour.

Deathpants is a team of writers consisting of Mind_Over_Matter, cmwinters, wendelin the wierd, and Schmerg_The_Impaler. Our story was written in Round Robin format. This (and our deranged minds) explains its randomness. Enjoy!

The insanity of the Deathpants has gotten to the mods! This ridiculous story WON the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Humour Story!
