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! :)

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,

Wow, beautiful. :)

The thoughts behind it are excellent and it's almost mind-boggling. I love the way you captured Fudge - it's excellent.

This is so going on my faves. It's really the best poem I've read in a long time.

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m actually a songwriter, so poetry has been something I\'ve been relatively good at, but this is one of the best compliments I\'ve received in a while!

Thanks again!

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.

Everything About You by JC_Cainstone
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 31]

Summary: Lily Evans has just about everything to deal with. James Potter, NEWTS revision, James Potter, annoying friends, James Potter, song writing for the "Cheer Up" Christmas Ball and James Potter are just a few of them.
It was only natural that she should put off the song-writing until the very last minute.
Sitting by the fire of the Gryffindor common room, she searches desperately for inspiration. Her eyes land on James Potter. She begins to write...

Aw how cute. I really like it. Especially how drastically changes for Lily, and how Lily slowly yet surely changes too. keep writing! :]


Like how his hazel eyes shone with laughter, his smile made her want to smile too, how he seemed to be shying away from the limelight he usually revelled in.


I really like the Sirius and James dance thing, it seems like something they'd do!

But wasn't Hagrid the gamekeeper? Because he went to school before the Marauders, and he was gamekeeper ever since his third year (Tom Riddle was 50 years before Harry's second year wasn't he?)

Other than that one little thing, it's a GREAT story!!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I like the James and Sirius dance thing too :) I\'m really sorry about the whole Hagrid should be gamekeeper thing, yes, he was, and, yes, I made a mistake! I\'m sorry!! I would correct it, but it would mean deleting the story, editing it and re-submitting it. Couldn\'t Hagrid have a cold for that one scene? Thanks again for the review!

o my god what a great fic. The words you use captivated me, and the way you wrote it was so deep and made me really think about poor poor Moony. I never really realized how hard it must have been for him. Great fic, keep writing always. You have a way with words, and JK Rowling would be proud!

Author's Response: Thank you, I\'m glad to hear it. Although I think JK would sooner sue than thank me. :P

How very interesting and well written!

You took a new - and nice - spin on Myrtle. I particularly enjoyed the second chapter, where she says "Well done, Cedric" and giggles for days because it seemed like he spoke to her. Cute. :] And in both chapters, the whole "I like your chest" thing is really amusing. It seems very like Myrtle.

And even though Cedric doesn't actually say much, since it IS Myrtle POV, I think you wrote him pretty well. He seems like the courteous Hufflepuff Jo meant him to be: he's polite, his bow, and his charming smile. Good job!

I liked the idea for this story - no one ever considers the thought that Cedric may come back as a ghost and be with Myrtle. The only thing though is the layout of the chapters. It's a tad confusing going from a fic a few years into the past, to one back in Harry's 4th year.

Otherwise, I really enjoyed this fic! :]

Very nice. I'd read the first three chapters of this at one point (and forgot to review, deeply sorry bout that) and forgot about it for a bit. But today, I rediscovered it and to my pleasure, found that it had been updated since then!

I like your writing style, and your way with dialogue. Simply wonderful! :]

oo this is good! i love how you really put the reader into tom riddle's shoes. i think you captured him and his life really well.


Despite his striking appearance and uncanny ability to get his way when he tried, Tom Marvolo Riddle was just another orphan to the people of Vauxhall, and his grey tunic marked him as such to outsiders. ‘Not special or any different from the rest’ was the signal such clothes sent, and most people simply dismissed him from their minds as if he wasn’t there.


i like how you wrote this part, it really makes you think that a regular person that you see as not-so-special on the street can turn out to ruin everyone's life.

i also like the use of your language, and all the complex words and sentences you wrote that force the reader to pay close attention to what you're saying. your writing is great! keep it up! :]

ps. are you going to update it?

Author's Response: Your review was really nice, thank you very much! I like being told if there\'s something in there I\'m doing right XD
