Call me Mari. :)

Need a beta? Contact me; I'll be more than happy to do it!

I have recently returned from a year-long hiatus, but I'm back! I definitely am excited at the prospect of being able to write and to read the fics I love so much. I don't think I can stay away from this site for too long; I just love to write and be able to see my works posted and being critiqued and reviewed. :)

Five of my fics are over a year old, so if you want an accurate representation of my current writing, I do not suggest basing it off of at least the first three of the following list. The oldest to newest of those five are The Secret, Blind, It Means Nothing, Draconis Viridans, and Exposure. To Be Loved in Return was written in a similar time period as that of Exposure, but was not posted until my recent return. My newest fic, written post-hiatus, is Fall For You, which is probably my favorite of them all, though it is a very close call.

Well, I hope you enjoy my fics, and please review, if you do read them. Thank you! :)

My son, my beautiful son...

Obliviate him…

How sad!

But very well written, I think. It's just like Remus to try to find the hidden explanation. And I think you portrayed Mrs. Pettigrew's thoughts and actions very, very well. It was like reading her diary.

I especially liked the random diary entry in there. Lots of emotion, and it seems like something one would actually have found in a journal.

Very nice. :]

aw so cute. i love what james said to the sorting hat
I took a deep breath, and refusing to let anyone see how nervous I was, sauntered up to the hat and pulled it onto my head. 'Please Gryffindor' I thought desparately. 'Why Gryffindor?' the hat asked. 'Well' I thought to it (all while mentally kicking myself for doing something so uncool as talking to a hat) 'all my family has been in Gryffindor, and those guys I met on the train were just put into Gryffindor, and you put Lily in Gryffindor. I’m marrying her. You can’t separate a husband and wife!' The hat didn’t answer for a minute. It made a funny noise, almost if it were laughing at me. But I knew it wasn’t. Because hats can’t laugh. And I hadn’t said anything funny. So it must have been coughing or something. Except hats can’t do that either. Maybe they can. Well, anyway, it soon answered. 'Erm…okay…if you say so… '“Gryffindor!!!"
great story, looking forward to reading more by you :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you liked it! That was one of my favorite bits, too. I have another one-shot in queue, and a couple others that aren\'t finished yet. :-)

 

Prisoner 21431199 by Morwen
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 16]

Summary: He was innocent. That much he told himself over and over as he sat in his cell, and years later, it seemed that that was enough to keep him sane. But despite this, Azkaban left scars on Sirius that could never be healed. Part I is set when Sirius was in Azkaban.

Still many thankies and huggles for the banner; I love it! Sorry for reviewing so late, I've been busy and stuff. *shakes head* Anyway...

Gosh, I really like this story.

I think it's absolutely wonderful how you repeat his number over and over, and how it symbolizes his prisoner self, and that he's not Sirius Black anymore.

Oh, but I did notice that instead of a period in the first sentence, it should be a comma, because you say the official is reading the number. ;)

And Lily wouldn't be in a pool of blood, would she, since the AK doesn't leave a mark, unless of course, you had Voldemort torture her first... (Sorry, this is just my beta side coming on. *laughs* )

The memories are fewer and fewer, slowly replacing themselves with a constant barrage of everything he has ever tried to forget. Mostly though, it is the few last memories that haunt him the most. Sirius reminds himself that it was not his fault, that he is innocent.


Sometimes he wonders if he is losing his mind.


I feel this is a very powerful few lines. It captures how he remained sane, really, with the thoughts of being innocent. Yet, while it keeps him sane, he thinks he's going insane.. Funny how that works.

Snuffles curls up in the patch of sun and dreams of chasing rabbits in warm fields, his nose twitching slightly as he sleeps.

For some reason, I find this adorable. To think that, being an Animagus - an illegal one at that - could save you. So technically, if someone went to Azkaban for being an illegal Animagus, wouldn't they stay mentally intact because they could change at will? And if they could turn into a bug or something, like Rita Skeeter, wouldn't it be insanely easy to escape? Haha, that's kinda cool.

The Minister seems a bit surprised by this statement. Snuffles realizes that he has probably been greeted by blank stares or screams at every other cell.


“Well, good then.” He turns to go, and Snuffles is struck by a sudden thought.


“Er, Minister, are you done with your paper?” Fudge stops and looks curiously at him. “I miss doing the crossword.” He finishes lamely. The Minister turns and confers with the assistant before speaking to him.


I love this. I particularly liked reading the line where the Minister isn't used to having a prisoner reply. Fudge should have known right then and there that Sirius was sane and fine - well, as "fine" as you can be in Azkaban.

The next day, he begins pacing his cell as he considered the situation. It felt decidedly odd to be doing something like this, for someone who had spent the last ten years in a haze, but it was something that needed to be done. For the first time in twelve years, Sirius felt alive. For the first time, he had a purpose. He knows that he needs to do something, but he isn’t sure what.

I like this because it shows Sirius' loyalty and love for his godson, even if he's never really known him.

Admittedly, as much as he wants to protect Harry, and as much as he owes it to James to ensure that Pettigrew isn’t able to complete what he started, he is afraid.

This line also shows Sirius' dedication to his best friend. I also like it because it shows he is actually scared. Because he is afraid, it shows the way he wants everything to go right, and this leads back to his loyalty to James, once again.

Okay, okay, last one, I promise. :)

Sirius is alive once more, prisoner twenty-one, forty-three, eleven, ninety-nine left behind in the foaming surf.

Once again, the symbolism of the number 21431199 and how he leaves it behind in the sea, as if washing it off.

I tip my hat off to you for this writing. 'Tis marvelous, and this story will definitely go on my favorites. I'll be off to read your other stories soon! :)

Author's Response: I don\'t mind, a review is a review and late or not makes me happy. I\'ve been debating on whether or not I should leave it a period or make it a comma, because I wanted to create kind of a detached sense, like it\'s not really normal conversation but something that he\'s hearing through his shock because he\'s still dealing with his friends\' betrayals and deaths. And no, Lily isn\'t actually in a pool of blood, it\'s her hair streaming about her that creates the effect, so he thinks that it looks like she\'s lying in a pool of blood. And thanks again for the review because really long ones like yours are wonderful because they actually highlight the good and bad parts of the story instead of just saying they liked it.

 

Summary: This is not your typical love story. It begins in the summer before James' and Lily's seventh year. Lily gets a letter from Remus about Dumbledore's surprising choice for Head Boy. Is Lily happy about this choice? Will James finally win Lily over in the last year that he has left? Read to find out more!

Make It Right by LiliacFleur
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 67]

Summary: What will it take to open Lily’s eyes and show her that James Potter is no longer the cocky, annoying little boy she sees him as, and make it right? A little trouble with Professor McGonagall, a detention and a list, it seems.
When Lily is forced to write a list of the positive attributes of James Potter, she finds her task less difficult and much more enlightening than she could ever have thought.

A one-shot fic that somehow managed to make itself into a two-part fic, featuring one of the Potterverse’s most beloved couples.

Haha oh my dear goshness.

This is great. I love the way this is formatted, and I absolutely love Charlotte's last reply. I mean, as I read it and my mind took it all in, I imagine I paled. Haha, what an effect a little story can have on someone, eh?

I imagine Lily's face paled as well.

Seeing the nine pages of reviews for this one chapter alone, I will not ask you to update. I think others are pressuring you for that enough. :D

Hoping you'll continue soon,

Scary Beautiful by Eve
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 127]

Summary: If you're looking for the same old James loves Lily but Lily hates James story, than you're in the wrong place. The story is about confusion, heartbreak, and yea okay, there's a little fluff here and there. The story starts off with Lily and James becoming friends in their 7th year. But seriously, how long can that last? With fueding friends, jealousy, and secrets, Lily and James have quite a few things standing in their way. Does this stop their famous love? No WAY! But why believe me? Read and Review!






Sorry I haven't updated in so long. I'm a horrible person. All I can say is that every other time i tried to post the last chapter, it didn't feel right. Now it does. I like how it turned out.
