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.

And lastly, since every profile should have an HP quiz result! :)
Summary: An Ode to Snivellus, written by the Marauders. Showing their true feelings for him, once and for all.
Lol. It actually does sound like something the Marauders (especially Sirius or James) could have written!
Summary: It's just your average, boring Summer day on Privet Drive. Or is it? Harry is stuck doing another one of his many thankless chores, when he hears something VERY interesting coming from Dudley's room and goes to investigate.
lol! just like your other story "truth be told" this one is quite random, but you pull it off really well! this story is really funny!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Randomness can be funny, as long as you don\'t go TOO random!
Summary: Join in the twisted fun and scandal with this Harry Potter Soap Opera!. ***Thank You to My Wonderful Helper, Black Ink!***
Heehee. Kiddens running amok. Poor McGonagall! And poor school... :)
Author's Response: i know...kiddens these days...lol
Eeek! :D What would a good soap opera be without some vampires, ay? :D I love this chapter... Finally, the real bad guys show up! :D It's amazing how soap opera-ish this fic really is! Soooo funny! lol!
Can't wait for the next episode!
Author's Response: lol i don\'t know, i just wanted some vampires:) Thank you for the enthusiastic review:)
lol! Funny chapter.... it really is just like a soap opera (I'm not too fond of them, usually....). I love all the over-complicated plot twists... :) You have a couple of canon errors, though (more than oocness, which obviously is the point :D). For one thing you can't apparate inside the castle, and Filch wouldn't be able to, even if it were possible, because he is a squib and can't do magic. Not really a big deal on the whole, though. Update soon!
Author's Response: I don\'t remember writing about Filch apparating anywhere--good you point that out to me? Is it from a previous chapter??
Author's Response: Ah, but Mundungus apparated inside the castle. Foolish me, I knew better....
Nooo! A cliffie! :D Loved "mad Dumbledore" and the battle for custody! The plot twists maddeningly! Brilliant! And, of course, really funny! Please, update soon! I can't wait to find out about those vampires! :)
Author's Response: ok, i\'m workin on it:)
three words: Laugh Out Loud!
Author's Response: I\'m glad to hear it!
Lol! Poor Crookshanks... I hope they let him see his...erm... young soon! And I hope he doesn't eat Roger! :) If wizards had TV, they would definately have a soap opera like this one!
Author's Response: ha they probably would! thanks for the review!
Ooooh!! Is it really Sirius? Or someone else? Hmmm... And where's poor Hermione? I love the ridiculous complexity and all the sub-plots. Really a perfect wizarding soap opera! And funny, too!!!
Author's Response: thank you very much for the lovely review:)
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
:D I don't see why old Dung shouldn't be in their year... and I love having him in this fic! :) I'm fairly sure the rooms are shared by year, but I guess that could be a more recent thing in Harry's time. And this story is way too cool for me to care, lol. I really am enjoying reading about Remus!
Author's Response: *giggles* I just love Mundungus and had to include him in the story. I\'m glad you like it too. The thing with the rooms...to be honest, I always thought there would be more than just five boys and 5 girls in each year. I had read somewhere in a JKR interview where she said there were around a thousand students at Hogwarts. If there are only 5 per year of each sex, that makes only 280. I just figured there are a lot of people that slip by Harry\'s radar. Or maybe Harry\'s year and the ones right before and after were smaller classes, due to the first war. In any case, in my fic, I have there being more than one room of boys in Remus\' year. I\'m glad you can overlook that. I\'m sure there are other things that need to be overlooked. ;) Though I do try to stay within canon. Well, thank you for another wonderful review. I do hope you continue to enjoy it. :)
What an interesting way to show us Remus' childhood! I love seeing everything through his mother's journal/photo album! Very original! I can't wait to read more, as your take on Remus intrigues even in this first chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Valentinia. I\'m really glad to hear you are enjoying it. The journal was fun to write, and an easy way to get all those years covered without going into too much detail. Maybe I should have done the entire story that way. I might be finished by now and been able to cut the chapter count by at least half. ;*) But I hope you enjoy the rest of the story. Thank you for reviewing.
Interesting how the title "appears" this early on. I like it! :D Plus, Remus' family seems so sweet! And I love your characterization of Remus as a child! Really, this fic is already brilliant after two chapters! I can't wait to keep reading!
Author's Response: Thank you, Valentinia. I\'m going to take that comment to mean that you like the appearance so early on, and not necessarily the title. LOL I find the title a bit embarrassing (cheesy!). lol Hence the reason I always refer to it as MoB. I really don\'t know what I was thinking. ;*) But, it actually makes more than one appearance. To be honest, this chapter and that line is where the title actually came from. So, I\'m glad to hear you liked that part! I feel sure that Remus had a sweet family so I\'m glad you see them that way. Thank you about that on the characterization. I just love Remus! I hope you continue to enjoy the story. Thank you so much for taking the time to review.
Summary: This is a spin off of the famous child star countdowns. It is the famous child witch or wizard countdown. Where are they now? What made them worthy of the countdown? Fellow witches and wizards are on hand for one-on-one interviews about the famous witches and wizards.(pre-HBP)For those that have been wondering about the sequel, info can be found on my profile page
lol! That's really funny! I love Luna's comment on Neville. Roundbottom. lol!
Author's Response: =)
definately very different than your others! still, you did a good job conveying the developing relationship with only one chapter. though ebony lust still intruiges me far more, this was very good, too.
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
And yet another brilliant chapter. When Dumbledore gives Hermione the note you've got it saying "Professor's" instead of "Professors' ", but that's not really important - the chapter was a good one, even though we didn't see very much of Tom. I like the relationship between McGonagall and Dumbledore... cute! Also, Hermione's thoughts (but also her feelings for Tom) are very realistic, as are Tom's. And making Voldemort IC is very, very hard, in my opinion.
No, Hermione!! You idiot! If you leave he won't be nice anymore!
Anyway... *clears throat* Another great chapter! Wonderful writing and great characterization. I'm still hoping for a happy ending, but it seems to be getting farther and farther away... *sniff*. Still, an intriguing and original plot, with much suspense and many questions... can't wait for the next chapter!
Yet another great chapter! She shouldn't have run away from him!! What if that's why he becomes evil!! *Is paranoid and hopes against hope for a happy ending* Anyway... Emma and Christoph are pretty funny... fairies or pixies... lol! Poor Hermione, though... Falling in love with Voldemort, and trying to figure things out...
Why did you end it there? Why? *over-dramatic cry* Anyway... good chapter! As usual the imagery and the descriptions (especially of the feelings) are great. I hope time does change and everything ends happily!! *doubts it* Can't wait for the next update!
Bit of a cliffhanger?!?! As usual a really well-written chapter, though! I really like "I gave up the world for you" - it seems like such a ridiculous, sappy statement, but it's actually true here.
One thing, though. The Whomping Willow wasn't planted until Lupin came to school, so it wouldn't exist in Riddle's time. Otherwise - great chapter! Can't wait for the next!
Though I was hoping for something a little longer, this was great! I really love all of Voldemort's last thoughts and the last line is so touching! This entire fic has been wonderful! You took on a task that seems impossible and did such a wonderful and beautiful job! Your writing is really brilliant and I'm really looking forward to reading more by you!
"Take My Heart Away" is one word - wonderful!
