My stories are posted in their entirety on my LJ. For teasers and full-version chapters (i.e. the sort of stuff they won't let me post on mugglenet) of April Rain and The Upside of Being Down, visit my LJ (at the above link). Feel free to leave comments or just ramble about your day, as that's the gist of what I do there! As always, I'd love to hear from you!
The equally long-winded sequel to The Upside of Being Down-- The World's Going to End, So Take Off Your Sunday Trousers-- is now available for your perusal at my livejournal. Do read!
This is SOOO good! Why is there only one chapter? I want more! lol Update soon please!

Omg... you just made me cry a little. Or it could be because i just took off my mascara and my new eye-makeup remover is fricken EVIL... but still. You are so sweet. I know you say that stuff to my face (stroking my fragile ego and whatnot) but to find you've told someone else that you think I'm a good writer is huge. HUGE like... like... well, YOU know. You do. Don't act like you don't. Because that would be lying. But I'd love you anyway. I wuv yoooooooouuuuuu Sarah-bo-bearah.... (*snork* i'm a retarf, aren't i? ah well) a;lkgjls;kgjslkjgl ~Kimmykins*

Summary: Prequel to Someone Like Me. Severus Snape and Evelyn Dumbledore were best friends until Evelyn and her mother fled Aberforth when the children were five. When Evelyn returns years later, Sev's heart melts and his wall comes crashing down. To keep her safe from Voldemort, he must give her up. But Evelyn is not your average librarian. And sometimes things don't go as planned...
And sometimes they do.
Can suicide be a happy ending? In a mind twisted just enough, it can.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review :-)
Oooh... this is good. Very good. Sort of Cinderella, with a Potterverse twist. I like your imagery, your grasp on emotions, your realism-- for some reason, it made me very happy that you don't try to sugar-coat the effect his nightmare is having on Draco. He's suffering, and shows it, and that impressed me. Some people might try to merely skim over it, but you go into depth; such as in the end, when our mystery girl's father (or at least that's my deduction who the man is) watches her, and you describe his emotions. I really believed that scene. You have quite some talent, dear, and I can't wait for an update! :) ~Kim~
Author's Response: Thank you for such a wonderful review. I tried to respond last night but my comp was actinf funny. I'm glad that you found the first chapter to your liking. This is the first time I have let anyone (that includes friends and family) read anything I've written and it warms me that my first review was a pleasant one. Thanks again. J.
You're very welcome, of course! I actually wasn't prone to letting other people read my work before I posted my story here, either. I've found, though, that the risk and the feedback has given me a lot of confidence in my writing style, and also allowed for many very helpful suggestions and constructive criticism. Some of it was hard to swallow at first, but looking back, it's all helped as a result. Anyway, again, looking forward to the next chapter. I still very much enjoy your portrayal of Draco so far. He just... is. And I like that. *grins* ~Kim~
Summary: This one-shot is about Harry and his feelings and fears about what he is going to do about Voldemort after his sixth year. Harry thinks about all those chances he had, but missed and about things he could have done but didn´t during his time at Hogwarts.
I just can´t summarize this story, you just have to read it to know what it´s about! *please, make me happy*
6 reviews and 155 reads... guys, do you really think I don´t see that you just sneak away after reading? lol REVIEW! :-)
Dun-dun-da-dah!! Tis your lovely beta, here to review at last. :P Looks like other ppl are liking it, which is great! Hope that more review, because of course that's one of the most satisfying things about writing, is having someone else read what you come up with and telling that they actually like it. *smiles* Top job, of course, m'dear. Toodles,
Author's Response: Yay Yay Yay! U did it! *dances like a maniac* Thanx a lot, my awesome beta! *hugs* It is indeed very satisfying to read reviews, I look out for new ones every day, but unfortunately ... *wink wink to whoever (...Padma...) hasn´t reviewed yet* Aah, it is indeed so great, that i will probably post a new fanfic just because of the reviews...lol By the way, you must be really happy, he? How many reviews did u get for april rain..must be millions. :-) luv always, LiliRose. xxx :-)
Summary: In an account of personal growth and very deep friendships, a young girl manages to grow up at Hogwarts in the shadow of her extraordinary friends during the first rise of Lord Voldemort.
Your prologue is so compelling, it's already caused a dozen ideas to start rattling around in my head of what this story could be about... it was short and sweet and yet I never got the impression it wasn't enough. Signs of a true author, that. For some reason, the imagery with the pink bed-slippers just really did it for me, I am so intrigued.
Author's Response: Hee-hee, pink slipper! I hope all those ideas rattling around don't give you a headache! Wow, I have the signs of a true author, how exciting (walks around with a sign saying "true author" hanging around my neck) I hope that the next chapter is up to the standard everyone is seeing! Thanks so much much for reviewing!
Summary: CHAPTER 10 COMING SOON!!! - THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE COMMENTS! Rating: PG-13
Do you think it’s easy to run from your family?
When Sirius Black is ten years old, everything in his life is black and white. He is a wizard. He is the heir to his most noble house. He is eager to please and willing to be everything his parents have ever dreamt for him.
Then, at Hogwarts with the ability to explore the world differently he starts to question what he has been taught his whole life and finds that even though he is a brilliant wizard and studies and most things come easy to him there is still so much he needs to learn about life outside of Grimmauld Place.
Follow along with me as Sirius Black’s world starts Fading Into Grey.
