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!

Their ♥ is timeless. I only hope to be able to find someone with as much passion and beauty as the two of them hold. Their island makes me dream of a Carribean get away with a ♥er, and I wept tears of happiness throughout this story. Could there possibly be another one-shot? Maybe of the day Rosmerta finds out about the veil? Hopefully so, because I adore this ship. This story actually inspired one I am currently writing. All the best, ♥

Author's Response: Thank you for the beautiful review! I\'m so touched and happy to inspire. I ♥ you for being such a emotionally responsive and fabulous reader!

In my R/T story, Sirius is going to go through the veil and if I don\'t make people cry over the gut wrenching tragedy of it all, I\'ll re-write until I do, because any story that doesn\'t have everyone who knew Sirius well devestated is a travesty! (I\'m a little attatched to him, lol) Since I\'ll have his lover Cami (in that different dimension of the Potterverse) go through hell, I can\'t do it in this story. I\'m officially going AU and saying he stays on Flores and isn\'t in London to go through the veil. Harry is lured to the Ministry another way and after Voldemort is dead, Harry takes a holiday like a normal boy, and lets the love of his godfather and his girlfriend begin to heal his emotional scars. The end. ^_^

Wow. I do seem to lean more towards Regan, and yet I do see the way Jack thinks she is being used. I liked how this story showed that being the most popular isn't always how it seems, and being the plain jane, girl-next-door is sometimes something to envy. Great job! :]

Author's Response: My first review! Thank you so much. Regan\'s always been a favourite character of mine, and I\'ve experimented with her, but I\'ve never put her up on Mugglenet fanfiction before except for a brief reference in another story. I\'m glad to see that her situation is appreciated. Thanks so much for your review. =D

Author's Response:

Thanks for your review! It\'s appreciated. =D

My grandma is an immigrant from Kilkenny, Ireland, and she\'s basically the muse for this. I haven\'t had a lot of exposure with the Irish, so sadly this is based on a few stereotypes, but I hope I did all right with it. I don\'t mean to offend any Irish people at all. =D

You know, I would be entirely too happy to give Sirius said backrub. Ooo...blast! I forgot that then I would be cheating on Remus! Hehe!


I also have a Remus/OC story. They are fun to write aren't they? Huh...I just noticed that ours have some similarites. My OC is Irish as well, though I like D much better! =]

Oh, I loved it! You never see James/Lily stories like this. Great job, you deserved first place for the February Challenge! =]

Author's Response: Thank you!

 

Summary: It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)

Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.

With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.

Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.

If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.

This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!

Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)

So, i gotta admit, I was really wondering if this was going to be as good as The Dark Lord's Blog, but I can safely say you pulled it off without a hitch! Voldy, once again, had me laughing so hard I think a rib might have cracked...crappers...


In regards to blown up toasters: LOL! I told my dear old Mum about what happens to the hapless toasters in this story, and she told me that if I ever got a "bright idea", that I would be grounded from the horses for a year. Needless to say I didn't try out that particular experiment...


Well, fantastic, as always, and please hurry with the next chapters!

I actually submitted the second chapter a few days ago, so let\'s hope the mods like it!

Author's Response: Lol. You know how people hide their true feelings... I\'m glad you found this cute, because other people found this disturbing. I personally thought it was a lot more cute than disturbing.

 

Summary:

He was Muggle-born, a Hufflepuff, and a slob. Andromeda Black could not understand why a boy with messy hair and untidy ways was so popular until she realised no one enjoyed life like Ted Tonks. It wasn't a secret that he liked her...and she didn't like his girlfriend.

Author's Response: Thank you! If they had just shown the nerd girl acting nice but really being mean, looking down at people or cutting little kids in line, something-anything other than just dressing like Nancy Drew, it would have been \'so much better\' :D.

I really enjoyed reading this. I'm so glad you included it on the list you sent me. I love the way you repeated watching and waiting throughout the poem. It built up so much suspension, almost like you could personally feel how the people were holding their breath before and during the war.


I myself have never been a poet, but not because of lack of trying. This was an awesome read! Loved loved loved it!

Author's Response: Thank you, Ashley! *tacklehugs* I\'m glad you liked it so much. I just sort of wrote it and then realised what the feelings were once I re-read it, so I\'m glad you could see something that I didn\'t at first. *grins sheepishly* Thank you sooooooo much for the review! *huggles* Jamie

This was wonderful, even in its simplicity. I could really feel the woman's frustration at her mother and at the rules set for her. You did a great job of bringing her feelings into the light so as to where as a reader I could really understand them. And the little piece of Heaven at the end was beautiful. Great job!
