Hi, I'm Valentinia, your typical Harry Potter obsessed teen.
I've read the HP books so many times that I've lost count, but I'm guessing most of you on MNFF have done the same!
Otherwise, I'm pretty boring.
My favorite band is Evanescence.
My favorite HP characters are Luna "Loony" Lovegood and Petunia Dursley.
My favorite HP book is PoA.
My favorite HP chapter is "Career Advice" from OotP.
My favorite HP film is probably OotP.
My favorite HP actor is Evanna Lynch. There're a lot of great ones though!
I'm an all-out Ron/Hermione, Luna/Harry and Ginny/Neville shipper. *Sigh*. I know, I know, Canon just sort of ruined those last two. Still, Harry/Ginny was okay. I guess.
I also love stories about Parvati, Padma and Lavender, because I think they deserve some character and depth and they're often deprived of it and made into girly non-humans.
And here some cool things from other people's profiles:
Weird is good, strange is bad, and odd is when you don't know which to call someone. Weird is the same as different, which is the same as unique,so weird is good. If you are weird and proud of it, copy this onto your profile!
92 percent of American teens would die if Abercombie and Fitch told them it was uncool to breathe. Copy this in your profile if you would be the 8 percent that would be laughing your head off.
If you're one of those people who get excited when you see just two reviews, paste this into your profile.
If you've been on the computer for hours on end, reading numerous fanfictions, copy this into your profile
If you don't watch Laguna Beach or the O.C. or The Hills religiously, never have, never will, and are proud of it, copy and paste this into your profile.
You know you live in 2007 when...
1. You go to a party, sit down and take MySpace pics.
2. You haven’t played solitaire with real cards in years.
3. The reason for not staying in touch with your friends is that they don't have AIM/LiveJournal/MySpace.
4. You'd rather look all over the house for the remote instead of just pushing the button on the TV.
6. Your evening activity is sitting at the computer.
7. You read this list, and keep nodding and smiling.
8. You think about how stupid you are for reading this.
9. You were too busy to notice number five.
10. You actually scrolled back up to check if there was a number five.
11. And now you're laughing at your stupidity.
12. Put this in your pro if you fell for it. You know you did.
Ninety-five percent of teenagers are concerned about being popular.

And lastly, since every profile should have an HP quiz result! :)
Summary: As Andrea Benning starts her fifth year at Hogwarts alongside The Trio, she has her own daily things to deal with, like a life-altering secret, studying, orchestrating Operation Sophie-Roderick Romance and a crush of her own. When one attends Hogwarts, one can hardly expect things to go as planned.
Fred and George Weasley are really only returning to Hogwarts for the priceless market research, but will there be time for other things as well?
As friendships and romances develop, the students at Hogwarts will also have to deal with the second rise of the evil Lord Voldemort and the terrible toad of a Defense professor - Umbridge.
I'm not sure if that can officially be considered a cliffhanger - but I sure see it as one! I'm dying to find out if my guess is right... *Waits in anticipation for next update*...
Anyway, I like this chapter. It's good how Andrea is actually upset about George leaving like that - I hate when the girl is just so... accepting of everything! I can't wait to see what's up with the UFFC, though! Anyway... this is definately one of my all-time favorite stories, and this chapter has only added to my good impression of it.
I enjoyed the reference to Siobhan, too... :D *Love that story too*
cool chapter!! UFFC... lol!!!!! i wonder what"s up with them, too. your story is really good!
Summary: I have seen them grow, change, and bond from a distance. They have never ceased to amaze me. What they have accomplished throughout the years is incredible, and I envy them. But with accomplishment also comes pain. How do they live when pain is preying on them? How do they go on when death is calling their names? They have suffered greatly, and that I do not envy…
I like this summary of the trio's changes through the years, though I don't really agree that Harry became so cold. I think, like Dumbledore said, what Harry's great strength was was that he remained human and didn't harden. But that's something that could be discussed forever, and your rendering was definitely well done! I liked that you chose Susan as a narrator, since she seems like the type of person who would really feel for others like that. Nice fic!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Hilarious! Pansy Parkinson! That was too funny! Especially the last chapter!
Summary: It's funny about wars. They drive people to do things we never would ordinarily--good and bad. Harry and I had only been dating for four months. He loved me--I know that and I knew it then--but if there hadn't been a war, he would have waited. I think he just wanted something to hold onto...for when it was all over.
Ron comes across Ginny's diary, four years after the war has ended.EDIT: 1000 reads!
What a sad fic, but really good! I really like that in the end she says she's coming home. That ties things together very well.
Also, Ginny's diary entry really sounded like Ginny; the ICness was great! I enjoyed having that memory in the middle of the diary, like a bit of narration. Though the idea of it sounds awkward, you really made it work!
Your writing is great, too. I really liked this one-shot!
Summary: Hermione, Ginny and Luna spend an evening at the village fair. Friendship fic.
Aww. This story is kinda fluffy, but obviously not in a romantic way. I like that Hermione admits the Crumple-Horned Snorkack migh exist. Luna and Hermione should defiately spend more time together: they could learn a lot from their differences! Anyway... there should be more cute friendship fics like this one! It's really good! I also like the implied pairings (Ginny/Neville forever!!). And the spider comment by Harry. It's all really good. I'd love to see a prequel or something, maybe with the cherry juice incident?
Author's Response: Ahoy there! Thanks so much for th enice review! Actually, the cherry juice incident takes place in chapter 1 of my fic \"Summer at the Burrow\", which I\'ll posting up on here in the near future...stay tuned!
Summary: Ginny is miserable. The war is over, but not for her. She still can't accept its consequences. She knows the promise he made, but can she remember to trust him again?
Sad! I think you've captured Ginny's spirit combined with her love for Harry very well! Good fic!

Hey, CALY!! u always leave dumb reviews 4 me... but i'll be nice anyway!
why don't you just change the chapter a little bit so that time has passed and jasmina and the malfoy kid have gotten together that would explain why she says she loves him! anyway... jsut a suggestion... good chapter....
u owe me a decent review!
Author's Response: Good idea, Valy. But at least I review you. So don't complain. Na na na... (Sorry guys, but I know this kiddo from school).
arrrrrrrrrrg... either update or delete this story, will you?
OOOOOOOOH, Caly, finally!!!! I like the idea!! Draco's son and Harry's daughter!! Cool!! hey, who's Jasmina's mom, anyway?? Ginny? (you said she had red hair) and is Lianna Ron's kid?? (also the hair) if so who else's?? otherwise, keep it up!!
Author's Response: Well, i dodn't really think about the moms. I think they're just the persons who fir to their spouses, so maybe a pure-blood-Slytherin for Armatius and a Quidditch-player for Jasmina, I don't know. They're just SOMEBODY, I don't know.
Summary: What happens when a Boggart turns into your deepest desire, instead of your deepest fear? Snape is about to find out...
Lol... fancies Snape does she? :) Bit young though, I'd say...
Anway... liked this story, though I don't see McGonagall and Snape's relationship like that (no I don't mean the boggart... :D) What I mean is, they both seem like such calm, cool, collected people most of the time, that I doubt they would openly fight a lot. But still... funny!
Author's Response: Oh, I definitely don\'t see them together, and I\'m sure Snape doesn\'t share the feelings, either. He\'s just having fun with the knowledge that she does. ;) Thanks, glad you like it!
Summary: Mrs Black watches the Quidditch from her private box and reflects on her disappointing sons, the importance of Black family values, and a certain Chaser for the Kenmare Kestrels ... [Written for the FictionAlley OTP challenge, set about five years after the end of the first war.]
Cool story. I like how Mrs. Black indulges in her secret... she really has the real aura of an elderly, rich woman who holds herself above everyone else. Troy being Muggleborn is a great touch. It sort of shows Mrs. Black that you can't help your feelings, and you can't change who you are... but she reacts very differently than say her own son must have reacted when he made that discovery. Mrs. Black really becomes a real person in this story; more than just a raving portrait!
Author's Response: Thank you. The portrait is probably an impression of the worst of her, but she still wasn\'t pleasant! In the end, her pure-blood views mattered more than anything else, even family, I think.
Summary: A little character exploration. How did Neville's Gran take the news of her son's torture and what does she really think of her grandson?
How sad... I really like how you portrayed Mrs. Longbottom's feelings in such a realistic but quite touching way.
Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m glad the story worked for you. :-)
Summary: Harry is aware of her little quirks and eccentricities, but never would he have imagined she would be so bold as to accept such a challenge from Malfoy. He tells himself she isn’t worth his time and yet can’t seem to stay away from her
that was really really cute!!!
Summary: Bellatrix Black is at this moment pressing a cold, sharp knife against her wrist. Will someone come and change her mind? One-Shot.
Wow. Very short, but touching. I love how Bellatrix is so cruel, just like she is in canon. The last sentance was absolutely chilling; just when you thought she had changed her mind... so very... Bellatrix!
Summary: I guess I should write AU… Anyway, this is how I would like the last chapter of Book Seven to be… What do you say?
:D Fluff!!! Good, old fashioned fluff!! Don't really think the books will end like this, but this was cool, too! :)
Author's Response: Personally, me neither... but a girl can dream, can\'t she?
Summary: Molly Weasley talks about why Percy is the way he is, and Bill decides to mend the rift.
I liked Mrs. Weasley's little "speech" on Percy. It really made me become more sympathetic to him. Bill's whole visit was very good, too! All in all, this very cute story made me smile... grin... laugh... :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am hoping there is something more to Percy, but I guess we will find out... Thanks for reviewing
Summary: A different sort of alternate universe... It is a world under the thumb of an ancient emperor. Muggle society has been oppressed beyond recognition. Wizards rule over all, their only laws defined by power. This is the story of a rebellion, a family, a traitor, and the long road that leads home at last.
*Squee* Finally a new chapter!!! It was great, too! I'm so glad Lily and James finally know about their kids! And I love seeing Remus and "Nyt" :D. I love how all of your fic fits with canon so much, but is so original and so different at the same time! This fic is really amazing, the character development is great! I can't wait to read more!! Please update soon! :)
Author's Response: Thank you!
I'm absolutely speechless. This is a masterpiece. It's amazing; I've loved every minute detail you've worked into this AU - every single difference and similarity, but it all seems to make sense and fit perfectly. All the different characters - OCs and canon ones - are wonderfully integrated into the society, and those that we know from the books are IC to some extent and yet so different. Amazing. The "excerpts" at the beginning of each chapter are a really clever touch, too. They really help shape the society. I cannot wait for you to update! Please, please soon! :D Amazing...
Author's Response: Thank you! :D
Summary: Mary Sue Bloomwood is one of the two famous unidentified Gryffindor girls, who is planning her revenge for having been, along with her best friend, Emma Connors, so plainly ignored by the Wonder Trio for the past six years. But is she really the mind behind all the madness going on at Hogwarts? Laughs are guaranteed!
LOL! i kinda guessed it was ginny, but this story was still pretty funny. very random, yes, but that works!
Author's Response: Good job! You\'re actually one of the very few ppl who got it!
