Summary: Hermione has had enough of her insufferable potions master and his ludicrously unfair grading system, and in her fifth year at Hogwarts, this talented witch finally decides to prove she knows a thing or two about mixing a potion even the masterful Snape doesn’t suspect.
Remember, my name is all lowercase :D. I knew this one should make it, it was really funny and it was something Hermione would never do, but really would do. I see you didn't use the last little paragraph ;). That's fine. Great chapter, don't know if you plan on continueing it, but I'll be glad to do the others if you want.
Author's Response: Hi ginnypotter19! Thank-you. Yes, I wanted to remain as true to my original words as possible and just fix the grammatical and spelling errors, so I left out the bit you wrote up and I\'m sure that\'s why I capitalized your name as a \"proper noun.\" I\'ll change it to all lower case for you now =) I think it\'s kind of funny so many people point out that Hermione would never do this, and yet I never read such a comment on one of the S/H fics ... now which is more likely, really? Hermione loosing it in class, or having a fling with the potions master? *grin*
Summary: Fred is dead.
But that's just the beginning! Because one of George's ears is up in heaven, and the other is down on earth...
Oh, the possibilities!
Written for the Next Great Adventure challenge on the MNFF beta boards. I am Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff House.
Twice nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts Story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quills Awards!
This story is by far THE BEST one-shot I have ever read. Possibly even the best story, too.
Why it is the best one-shot, however, is because all in one chapter you caught the comedy in the story, keeping Fred and George very alive (figuratively speaking of course) by keeping their characters very true and believable. You also made it very sad by letting us see what Fred had to endure watching over the years of his life and not growing up, making us realize what was really a result of Fred's death. I for one have finally been able to cope with his death now that this story has been posted.
I cried so much during this story *which I blame you for my swollen eye now ;) j.k j.k) and laughed at the same time. I love Fred to peices, though that may be George's job... Anyway, you captured the characters, the story, and even the characters you simply made up beautifully!
You totally and completely deserve any awards this story may ever recieve and in any contest it is ever entered in!
Author's Response: Oh my gosh! Thank you so, very, very miuch! I\'m really glad you liked the characterization because I was nervous about tackling such awesome characters as Fred and George. And I was very touched that you said this story helped you cope with Fred\'s death.... I wrote it to help me cope.
I did enter this story in a contest, but unfortunately it didn\'t win or place. Ah well! You can always nominate it for next year\'s Quicksilver Quills, wink-wink! ^_^
Just so you know it has been well over a year, almost two, since I last left a review, I'm sure anyway. And I still have not forgotten about this story(:. When I get in a truly weird moment where I want to read some fanfiction, this is the first story I come to, and the first story I'll suggest to the nearest Harry Potter fan next to me to read. It's still truly my favorite story! (:
Author's Response: Oh my gosh, thank you so much! I really don't read fanfiction or ever write much of it anymore, but I think this is my favorite story I've done. This really means a lot to me.
Summary: Dear Diary….
No, only girls keep diaries. Sirius and James would murder me if they found out.
Nah, that's rubbish, too.
Don't be such a pansy, Peter. Man-diary? You must want to be mocked out of this century.
Well, that's not so bad. It could be a temporary title, anyway.
Peter Pettigrew's mother wants him to let out his feelings in a "diary". Here is the first (and last) entry of his man-journal.
Many thanks goes to ix3thehpseries and Mistletoe for being faboulous and helpful betas!
Wow, that was a very interesting read! I have always loved the story of Peter Pettigrew and have even tried writing a few stories about him myself, but I love how you have his life secrets in one 'man-journal' entry. I loved the end when he goes 'screw this. Tomorrow, Man-Journal, you're going in the fire'. That sounds so much like him! Throughout his whole life with the marauders you'd think that the way he is explained and treated he must have just said screw it a long time ago because of how much of an outcast he made himself.
I loved the little comment you made about his mother. She must have been drinking when she bought him the journal. It is sort of like a background check that we have also learned about his mother, and not just Peter and his secrets. So I'm presuming that she likes to drink? lol.
Other than that I really loved it and I'm off to read more of your stories!
Summary: The Chosen One is dead, but Voldemort lives. Harry dies with the quest unfinished. Hermione and Ron vanish, and are assumed dead. Sixteen years have gone by changing the world. The Dark Lord has taken over England and the Order is hard pressed to survive. Azena Lily Snape is more than meets the eye, raised and trained by Death Eaters with the last name of Snape most would assume the worst. She graduated at the top of her class at Hogwarts as a fifth year and a prized gem for the Dark Lord. Though she may very well be the one that will help turn the tide and win or lose the war. Azena must first face her unsure past and finish that which was begun but, never completed. The thing is she has a secret and a big one if the wrong person found out it could mean death .
“It Is Said Some Lives Are Linked Across Time..... They Are Connected By An Ancient Calling that echoes through the ages....Destiny.” Quote (The Prince Of Persia, The Sands Of Time Movie)
Congratulations on getting it published! I knew it was a good story, and now everyone else can see, too :)
Author's Response: Thank you for my first ever reviewe. :D
