Hey, my name is Zack and I live in Monroeville, IN. I just started reading fanfics from this site not too long ago and I'm really impressed with the authors. You guys are awesome!
Anyway, I've always loved reading and writing, and the Harry Potter series is the best ever written. So I thought to myself one day, "Self, why not combine your two passions into one self-satisfying endeavor?"
"No reason at all," myself answered. And thus I wrote my first Potter fic. Its called "The Ever After Maker" and I haven't been writing it for very long but I hope to submit the first chapter soon.
NOTE: I have just submitted a poem called The Ones Who Cannot Speak. I hit a little snag with The Ever After Maker, but I still hope to submit it soon
Okay, just for craps and cackles, I thought Iíd stick this in. These are my top ten favorite fiction writers of all time:
J.K. Rowling(Of course.)
Orsen Scott Card
Edgar Allan Poe
And these are my top ten favorite bands of all time:
My Chemical Romance
Taking Back Sunday
Summary: This one is about our good friend Severus Snape. For obvious reasons, heís hasnít been feeling too delightful lately, and his thoughts throw him into a spiral of fear and guilt.
I really enjoyed reading it. It sounds like it was incredibly well thought out. One question though: Is this poem supposed to convey that Snape is afraid of the dark, or ghosts, or demons in his own psyche? Or is there an even deeper meaning to it?
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. yes, you could say that the \"ghosts\", for lack of a better word, which Snape sees are demons of his own psyche. Reminders of his guilt over the murder of Dumbledore.
Summary: 'The next time he grieves, it will be with the remembered taste of lukewarm tea swirling with a sodden teabag, cheap tea and tears tasting like bitter dust; he will grieve with the scent and rustle of newspaper, paper and tea and violins for sadness.'
Remus after Hallowe'en 1981. For Avendya, for her birthday.
I really liked the imagery you used in this fic and how it tied in with Lupin's feelings and emotions. Great story!

Summary: Always mentioned yet never featured. Mr Lovegood, the father of Luna Lovegood, is a happy man. Usually. Since we have never met him personally, I have created a character that will hopefully let you all get to know a little more about the Lovegoods. I hope everyone enjoys this story, Please review so that I can build up an ego and then have it humbled ;) Thanks
Its really good keep writing.
Author's Response: Thank you very much, I will do ;)
Summary: *Nominated for 2006 Annual Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Original Character in reference to Rathius Ratbone*
It is Ginny's last year at Hogwarts, and the lessons she will learn are not restricted to books and classes. As she struggles to hold onto that which she holds most dear, the youngest Weasley will come to learn much about love, friendship, and herself.
This is the fifth story in the Epilogues story arc. If this is the first of my stories you have sat down to read, please read Right Here, One Good Day, and Epilogues Part I prior to reading this fic.
Great job with the quidditch scene and the tourettes syndrom rathius scene. One comment though: I think Ginny would be wrong in telling the beaters to send every bludger they got after the keeper, because it is illegal to attack the keeper when the quaffle is not in the area. Quite an excellent job though. The end came all too soon for me, so uh...hustle will ya?
Author's Response: Now where did you find this illegal. I wiki\'d quidditch rules, checked the lexicon, etc. I don\'t have quidditch through the ages, but from what wiki said of qta, it\'s more a history/anecdotal book than a rule book. Anyway, even after writing the scene and trying to research that specific bit, I still sent a note to the mod saying I\'m not sure if everything I\'m doing here is legal but I researched to the best of my ability. Another thing I find interesting is that you point out this rule, but the one I thought was really against the rules was the keeper leaving the hoops to score a goal. Anyway, thank you so much for the review.
This is a really great story. I'm at a loss for words to describe it but....wow. Lately I've been logging on just to see if you've updated Epilogues and if you hadn't I'd just log back off and go take a nap and check again an hour later. There are 284 pages in Parts 1 and 2 put together on Microsoft Word. Just keep doing what you're doing on part 3(I can't wait). The same goes for Hpmaniac666. She's doing a great job Beta reading. One more thing. If you have time, could you read and review the poem I have posted? Thanks.
Author's Response: Thank you. Okay first things first, I make no promises to reading and reviewing, especially considering that lately I haven\'t even really had time to write myself or even respond to my own reviews in a timely manner, but I promise I will try. Thank you for the page count as well, I really appreciate it. So if I put the first two parts together that\'s full on novel length, and I guess that works since they\'re so close together, so meshed in theme and tone, and all the rest of that stuff, wow. Awesome. I promise to try and start work on Part III as soon as I can, and to be as consistent as possible, but aside from the prologue, I\'m not going to start writing III until after February 10th. Sorry about that. Thanks for everything, and I\'ll see you for part III.
This is the best fan fic I've read thus far. I can't wait to read the rest of it. Even though you didn't do the whole soundtrack thing in Part II, I think the song "Falls Apart" by Hurt would be appropriate for Parts I and II. Again the whole plot is great. So um......more please.
Kilroy was Here.......
Author's Response: Wow... Thanks! I really appreciate it muchly. Chapter nine is in queue, and I\'m working on chapter ten, but ten\'s going to be very long. Basically, I feel that lately I\'ve been skimping on some detail and not really immersing myself in the writing and I think that maybe why I\'ve felt less than satisfied with what I\'ve been producing here in part II. So for chapter ten I\'m going back to basics and really just going to focus on some good solid writing for a change. As for the song suggestions... I didn\'t do it with part II for two reasons. One being that there really wasn\'t a whole lot of participation in Part I, and the other was because when I first started writing Part II, it was supposed to be a romantic comedy and not the angst fest it turned into, and I really didn\'t know how to do a soundtrack for a romantic comedy, to be honest. I will say this though, either when I finish this story or when I finish Part III, I plan on \"remastering\" all of my stories, and what I may do is just build a soundtrack for every single one (except of course Right Here, which is a songfic and therefore has a built in soundtrack). Thank you so much for the review, and I can\'t wait to see you for the next chapter.
cruel administrators. Hurry up already!
Author's Response: They are taking hteir time aren\'t they?
I may be wrong, but I think I am sensing a tad bit of hostility towards Cho at the end. The atmosphere is so thick I think I could cut it with the very dull axe that was the bane of Sir Nicholas DeMimsey Porpington. In the words of a certain That 70's Show character, "CAT FIGHT, LETS GET IT ON!!!" Seriously though, you've done it again. Excellent chapter. When will you churn out the next, and when will Part III be posted?
Author's Response: I daresay you could cut it with the grindstone it wasn\'t sharpened with. As for the next, I\'ve got about two pages left to clean up, and I should be putting it in queue tonight. Then I\'ll be writing what I think will be the last chapter of this story. After that I\'m considering a few things, one is to go through and clean up all of my stories and their author\'s notes, and I may do a backstory on Rathius and his brothers. But really, I think I\'m going to jump into Part III as soon as possible. I\'ve been writing it in my head for so long now that it\'s just bursting to get out. Thank you so much, and I\'ll see you next chapter.
Summary: Sirius has always wondered what fear really is like. Told in second person, this is a non-rhyming poem exploring Sirius's feelings of fear.
QSQ Poetry Award Winner.
Cool, thats deep, man. Keep writing, alright?
Author's Response: Of course. I have another poem in queue, already; hopefully, it won\'t be too un-HP related that it won\'t get accepted. Thank you for your review. ;)
Summary: A father tells his young son a familar story. A story that has become the boy's favorite. It is the story of the Dark Lord and the evil Harry Potter.
I really liked it, good job. It's all perspective. that is one of the most important things to make a story work.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review. I\'m glad you enjoyed it. And yep, the whole story is about perspective. I think it\'s important to look at things from the DEs perspective. It\'s not something we\'ve ever seen in the books.
Thanks again for the review!
