Right, so something about me. I'm 19, I'm about to begin my second year at University, and I am a Politics student. Hobbies? Well I love to read, I like rock climbing, gig-going (but for a select few bands), drinking tea (earl grey, milk - no sugar) and writing.

I am a Snape addict, a circumstance introduced and encouraged by the writings of Vocalion, EllieK and Grainne.

I am the proud beta of the following authors:

Little Loony
the nutty imp
Piper Alexis

I'm sorry if I haven't included you and I beta for you - I will add you!

AS for writting heres how the updates go for the stories I have posted:

Between The Realm of Dreams And Reality: I recently posted a chapter... however, nothing has been written since, I'll start working on it as soon as an idea pops into my head.

To Shatter the Soul of a Slytherin: I have most of chapter two written, its awaits an ending, but will probably be up soon.

Play the Game... of Love: Doesn't have anything written for the next chapter, I'm afraid. Though I've had a little inspiration.

Lost in Time: Is moving along nicely, I have part of the next chapter written, I'm just deciding how something should happen, and where it should go from there, The stroy itself is actually coming to a close and will probably have two or three more chapters left.

That was incredibly well written. I absolutely believed the whole course of events, It makes you a little sad when you know how it all goes, but I was stunned throughout. Your writting style is fantasticly clear, descriptive and smooth, not going over board on any of those aspects,. The characters, I thought, were spot on. You have me hooked I will of course, read on.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad to know that you enjoyed it!

I'm completely won over. That was fantastic. I just love the way that you've brought in that attack, and I thought it went completely convincingly. I am toatlly in love with your style of writing, its not often that you come across and an author with a talent such as your. I'm afraid I shall have to add this to my favourites, and will definately keep checking for and update!

Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much! You're adding me to your favorites? That's so nice! I've sent off the third chapter to my betas and am awaiting their responses.


Summary: Parody of the Harry Potter series written and completed before the release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. It looks at the lives of some of the major characters as they wait impatiently for book six to arrive. Naturally, chaos ensues. Suitable for all.

Winner of the first annual Quicksilver Quills Award 2006 for best humor fiction. Thank you!

*Sobs rackingly into hands* I have not cried so much since I watched Father Ted! That was fantastic, I will have the image of Voldemorts picture stuck in my head until my dying day! Brilliant! I loved it -- I love you! Don't ever let it end!

Author's Response: Oh wow, thanks! I LOVE FATHER TED! It's sooo hilarious. Thank you so much, but the story, unfortunatley, must end, though I forsee it reaching ten chapters at this point. Don't quote me on that though!

Well done!

I feel myself become more and more heartbroken for the youngest of the black's. I think that you've written it well, the conflict of personality is extremely well presented, the dilema between being what people want and being who he wants to be is shown realy well. I did lie it but it made my heart sink, I'm afraid I shall have to read on.

Having read that I feel such a strong wave of pity and guilt. It's never a pleasant situation to be in, and I think at some point everyone feels the temptation to do as regulus did. Its hard, it always is. Well done, I think you wrote that extremely well, considering what it was.

Author's Response: Thankyou a lot! You know I really appriciate these review! I try to make it more realistic so people know what it's like so they wont do it! I've just submitted chapter 3 so hopefully it'll get accepted. In chapter three you lot will have to tell me if it's moving a long to fast, i'm hoping it will finish sometime between chapter 6-10. Depends really. Thankyou lots!



Lily Evans has always pushed guys away, keeping her distance away from heartbreak. If she never got too attatched, she would never get hurt.

Yet, James Potter refuses to be pushed away. Will he be the one to actually tear down Lily's walls that separate them?

Squidbait Returns by Grainne
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 226]

Summary: This is the tale of what happens when a war-weary Auror returns to Hogwarts only to find that one last battle the form of Potions master Severus Snape. A romance with healthy doses of humor, angst, and Quidditch!

Now see here you naughty vixen, you! Grainne! I fell prey to your tantasiling drawings or writings of dear Severus - just how many young women have you converted to Snape fans. Steadily, throught the reviews of this story (and Vocalions too) there are numerous people professing their love for the former Potions Master and turning away from some other poor character. I think you're evil - but you do this so well...

Author's Response: Ahem, I believe the correct expression would be...MWUHAHAHAHA! Yes, no? Now, this tickles me, as I don't write Snape half so dashing and alluring as some authors do, and I'm sure that neither Vocalion nor I would actually advocate falling in love with the man (I mean, really, our main characters have more than enough trouble with him), but if they have turned away from "some other poor character," in favour of a more in-depth look at one Severus Snape, well, I say HUZZAH! That man bears watching, woudn't you agree? He's a sneaky one. Cheers, Orlaith; you don't know how fun it is to be called a vixen!

I liked the subtlety this chapeter runs with, dear old Snivellus, what ever will he do next. Ps - I swear I din't pick me penname for it's meaning, I just...liked it..ha, toatally unconvincin, eh?

Author's Response: It is a fine name, and I am sure you deserve it...thank you for reading & reviewing!

Oh thank you for adding this now, I'm just about to go off to my miserable job for the rest of the day, I think I'm much more prepared now. Snape is absolutely delightful, It looks like today isn't going to be so bad after all!

Author's Response: I am so pleased that you count reading this story as one of the good parts of your day! That said, I hope miserable job wasn't as bad as you thought it would be (and that, if it was, you oozed sarcasm, snarkiness, and scorn to all dunderheads in true Snape fashion!) Cheers!

I've been putting off reading this untill in great need. I'd say that an afternoon of essays on the office of the US president constitutes that, and good god I was rewarded! What a fantastic chapter. But then I'd expect nothing less. What is Mr Fairven doing in Egypt really? You've got the old ticker clicking again! The sentimental Snape moments were spot on -- but I think even he knows its love... After reading this I thought I could rather see myself in Athene... or maybe I'd just LIKE to be her... well, hmmm. For Snape -- anything! El Magnificent! Thank you for brightening my boring day!

Author's Response: This has brightened my whole week, Orlaith! You poor dear, all those essays about...*cough, cough, hack* Mr. Fairven, filled with remorse, has gone to visit his nephew Ben (Athene's old ABFAB partner). But you never know with him, do you? Thank you!

I very nearly choked to death on my tea, what a brilliant chapter! I absolutely adored :A few of the older girls, after observing their Potions master slather jam lovingly on his toast or curl his lips around a forkful of bacon, found themselves having odd fantasies throughout the morning. and can say nothing but AMEN! I'm definately in that boat...I think the closest death call was perhaps The Boy Who Lived Quite Well These Days.As ever bloody brilliant! Well Done!

Author's Response: Oh my! This chapter seems to be provoking some violent reactions! I am glad you survived to leave me this lovely review...and remember, while it is perfectly acceptable to fantasize about Snape eating a forkful of bacon, fantasizing about Snape while you are eating a forkful of bacon might prove hazardous to your health!
