Last Updated: 8/8/09: I'm back. Won't be too regular a visitor, have higher priorities, but I might as well visit MNFF every now and then now it actually works :)
So you're so bored with everything else that you've come to visit my humble biography? Well, I'm afraid you won't find that this improves your mood much, but, oh what the heck. I'm a Potter fanatic and can proudly say that MNFF introduced me to the world of fanfiction; it was the first fanfiction site I frequented and I registered on my 13th birthday. I don't come on here much anymore, unfortunately, MNFF stopped working on my old computer and I lost the habit.
Harry Potter's definitely my favourite book (series), but I'm an avid reader in general, particularly in the fantasy genre. My other favourites include Twilight, the Inheritance cycle and David Eddings' books.
It's a pity you aren't going to write a sequel, because I need something to occupy me since Deathly Hallows has been released. While I'll admit that no-one could compare to the great JKR, that's not to say that this story doesn't come close.
I'd seen this story a fair few times in the Recent Stories section, but I hadn't been a fan of alternate universe year 6 fics. One day I was a bit bored, so I gave it a shot and loved it. I've followed it since and I wasn't disappointed by the ending. I've seen a very small collection of excellent fics, and this is one of them. Looking forward to any other stories you write!
Will you PLEASE hurry up and update? 90% of your stories - even the in-progress ones - haven't been updated in, like, years! And that's sad because loads of them (like this one) are really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really good! UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE!
We wuv you, walla walla Washington...
Author's Response: lol - it\'s fun to say, isn\'t it?!
Good chapter. I've noticed that this is the type of fic where you know it's going to turn out alright but you can never really predict what issue is going to come up next. Thanks for the Dursley scene, and keep up the good work!
Author's Response: you are correct...i have long since promised a happy ending but im not telling anyone how we get there....
I think you missed my last review - here it is:
Keep it up! I liked the trailer - although it kept stopping and starting every few seconds I got most of it and it was fantastic!
Author's Response: im glad you liked it and i wil certainly try...
Great story so far, probably my favourite pre-HBP story and definately on my faves list! Well done and keep it up!
Author's Response: thanks so much! and i\'ll try!
Good as ever! I liked the names - my younger brother's first name is Robert and my little sister's middle name is Deanna! Quite a coincidence, huh?
Forgot to mention, you're the first of my favourites to ACTUALLY GET UPDATED!!! Let's hope that you being in my faves doesn't slow you down like it has for my other eight. (Though, admittedly, half of those have already been completed...)
Author's Response: lol...well the next chapter should be up within the week...
One of the strangest, stupidest and funniest fics I have ever read - and that's saying something. Oh, btw, when did the day count start?
Author's Response: Um, okay. I\'m glad you liked it. :-) The day count started around 700, if that\'s what you\'re wondering.
Author's Response: I forgot to add that, part of this chapter continued from last chapter, which is why it began with a \"Still Day\" whatever it was. :-)
Having just reread, I was wondering, will there be a sequel - perhaps Harry/Nagini?
Author's Response: Now that\'s an interesting pairing. lol But no, there won\'t be a sequel. :-(
When I said "when did the day count start?" I meant, when were they counting from? I just don't get what the significance of day zero is.
Author's Response: Oh, okay, my bad. :-)
I just re-reread and I've figured out that day 0 was approximately March 30 1994 - toward the end of Harry's third year. I wonder, was that the day Nagini was born?
Author's Response: She wouldn\'t have been able to start her diary the day she was born. :-) Depending how how fast magical snakes grow, I would say at least a year or two before hand.
Why does Sirius have potions ingredients. I don't think it's him who is stealing the ingredients though - after all, it does say "breaking into". But then...
Author's Response: Oh the possibilities! lol
I'd give you an "A". And no, I'm not just saying that. Even if you had a fair bit of strife, this is probably the best "long" story that I've ever seen. And while you say you were just seeing how well you could build characters, I think that the characters you created are masterpieces. I have seen such characters in The Forgotten Solution as well.
I hope you write many more fanfics. You are a great writer.
No, no shame, just UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!!
Author's Response: I think you\'re confusing me with someone who has time. if you think this, you are, unfortunately, wrong. I have no time, and therefore cannot update as often as I would like to. but thanks so much for the encouragement and the review!
Great story, I really liked it. Straight onto the favourites list, goes this one.
Author's Response: Thanks, and yay for faves!
How much longer...?
That's it. From here onwards, I will not be checking this fic until I see it in the Recent Stories column. I just can't stand the disappointment of looking up this fic only to find that you still haven't given any indication that you've even been on MNFF.
You don't seem to have been on MNFF in a while, otherwise you'd have updated by now. Come back soon.
I only just signed up (my 13th birthday is today) but I have been following your story for months. It's been a while since you've updated, so that'd mean the next chapter is coming along, wouldn't it? I certainly hope so because I really like this story. This is going straight to my favourites list.
