It saddens me to have to remove the images from my profile, but an update was drastically needed.
I am a proud Hufflepuff, a former SBBC-er, and a member of the lovely group, SPEW. All of these can be found on the beta forums. I'm very proud of my participation and membership in all three and they've all helped me to expand as a writer.
I'm also exceedingly proud to share that I've won the QSQ for Best Reviewer. Well, I just don't have the proper words to express how much of an honor this is for me.
If you're here looking for something to review (which I invite you to do), I would like to request that you review some of my more recent work. While I appreciate reviews on everything that I've written, they're always twice as sweet on something that is rather new. That said, please don't review My Father's World (it is definitely on permanent hiatus) or Miss Myrtle (which exists only for sentimental reasons these days).
Other than that, please enjoy and explore my author page! Thank you!
Tonks' world has fallen into shadow. Voldemort has returned, the Order of the Phoenix has risen, and Sirius is slowly drowning in memories and Firewhisky. Tonks needs more than determination to fight the darkness. She needs Remus.
You know what would be really funny (at least to me, that is)? A Cami POV of the night above the kid's rooms! I don't mean anything graphic....something sweet or funny....or not....I'm kinda sugar high right now.
Author's Response: Maybe a \'Twas the Night Before Christmas\' ficlet? Sounds good, especially with the holidays coming up, lol. Sugar highs are good things.
I never said they were legally married… .:D
Anyhow, it’s the thought that counts, right?
Author's Response: If Remus thought he wouldn\'t be hurting Tonks by marrying her legally, he would. He\'ll have a lot of conflict between his head and his heart next story!
Yes, and it sounds like Remus spent a little too much time in therapy at the "Honky Tonk Bar Association" :D
I can't wait to see what "Lola" will have to do with Scrimgeour! Hopefully no displays of affection, public or private (gross!). Excellent chapter!
-BTW - where can one find "From the Battered Journal of Remus J. Lupin"?
Author's Response: And one day, Remus and Tonks will be \'Two of a Kind, Workin\' on a Full House\' :D No icky affection, I promise...for now...bwahahaha...and yay for you finding the Remus journal a fic down from this one! ^_^
Oh boy, if I was any slower, I'd be going backwards! I take back my question, now that I've found the story on your author's page. I guess I don't think too clearly on Friday afternoons! :D
Author's Response: Weirdly, although both stories published today, the other was stuck behind one from yesterday...not that I mind, since I like remus R us...heh...but I think you think perfectly since you thought to review! =]
Incredible job as always! Please let Remus commence at making up soon! I can't stand it when he and Tonks fight....but it looks like they're on the right track. :D
I'd really love to see what advice Tonks' Gran has to give to her; she's such a great character, though seldom seen. ;)
Author's Response: Gran\'s priest would give brownie points for her quoting scripture, although what she has to do penance for can\'t be much, lol. Second thought, Mr. Santini is pretty frisky. Better not go there. ;)
Such an exploitation of puns you have! Have you ever seen Dudley-do-Right?
And I'm certainly looking forward to any type of one-shot that you write! :D
Author's Response: Wasn\'t Dudley-do-Right a part of the Rocky and Bullwinkle show? Was there a villian called Snidely Whiplash? I think Brendan Fraser did a George of the Jungle type remake. I don\'t remember it well, but I have seen it! (and Thanks!)
"Many many years ago when I was twenty three, I was married to a widow who was pretty as can be..." Such a catchy song! It's almost as good as Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree ;)
I love the drama between Lisa and Morty; will Tonks and Remus be attending another wedding soon? Or, perhaps, a baby shower?
Scrimgeour is much to smart for his own good! It's almost like how Evan could tell whenever Tonks had morphed...creepy!
Author's Response: I once used that in a Sirius fic when he had detention and Filch asked him if purebloods were inbred. How could he resist? :D Scrimgeour is smart, but not that smart, heh, and do you think Morty will go for a big wedding, or will he drag Lisa to a Ministry office...if she\'ll have him...:D
Sweet.....now I can blame you for getting me interested in another area of fanfiction. ;)
Author's Response: Yesss!!!! I will gladly shoulder the blame for that, and causing you to read instead of doing \'productive\' activities. :D
Yay for dress up!
I'm willing to bet two butterbeers that those pills actually had something to do with the red nightgown. Any takers? Tonks certainly seemed to be in a playful mood for the entire chapter. Or, at least, I can imagine that the playfulness evaporated once Scrimgeour told her of her assignment. :D
BTW - we ought to have seen this coming...wasn't it an example of foreshadowing when Tonks morphed into Scrimgeour? ..... Er, sorry, I just got out of an English final; must get into a holiday mood!
Author's Response: One thing Arthur Weasley is in no need of is \'Up-And-At-\'Em\' pills....if they were viagra instead of wizarding No-Doz equivalents.:D She will learn something interesting about the pills next chap though, and yes, I was trying to set up this with the morphing, but mostly to reassure readers that she wasn\'t \'anatomically correct\'...when she shifted into Jonas at the end of A Wolf in the Moonlight, that worried a few people, ho ho ho.
Definitely the Ministry office; the cheapskate! But will Lisa have him? She didn't seem to keen on it earlier in this chap.
BTW - It just struck me, does Mr. Wilytongue still work at the apothecary? That would totally explain Lisa's hesitency to trust the test. ;)
Author's Response: Mr. Wilytongue is a fixture, ready, willing, and able to embarrass the heck out of his customers in his eagerness to sell, LOL.
Wow, even though it is the middle of November and quite cold, this chapter made me want to put on my swimsuit and head straight to the beach. Excellent job.
I particularly like how Remus told Tonks about his mother. It would be, I think, interesting to have a one-shot of Remus as a child with his parents. It would be fun to see just how he's changed as he's become an adult and how he's stayed the same.
Anyways, enough of my rambling, thanks for updating!
Author's Response: If I ever write that one shot, it gets dedicated to you for giving me the fab idea! ^_^ I went to the beach last weekend, but I sure didn\'t lounge in a bikini....way too cold! :D
Damn....lost the bet! *starts handing out butterbeers* :D
Author's Response: You are most welcome and just tell anyone you bet that you\'ll owe them forever before trying to cheat them out of it, LOL.
Woah...that was nice chapter! That's a fascinating explanation for why Scrimgeour has that limp...I wonder if it's close to the "official" explanation?
Nice work with Kreature and pizza; I was cracking up!! :D
Author's Response: Makes you wonder, doesn\'t it, when he has a limp? We probably won\'t ever find out why, since it\'s not vital to the story, but like the details of Remus and Tonks\' relationship, I\'m more than happy to fill in the gaps! :D
Oh yeah! As always, I'm amazed at the scope of your abilities as a writer. This chapter was fantastic!
Just out of curiousity, are you going to turn this into an AU fic and have Sirius live or come back from his fall through the veil? Or are you going to keep it canon and have Sirious die in the battle? Whichever way it goes, I'm sure it will be excellent.
Author's Response: Sirius is going through the veil, I\'m going to keep this series canon...but I don\'t promise not to write an AU Sirius/Cami story if Jo won\'t bring him back in book 7! :D
Olympe looked into Hagrid's eyes hoping he would confess his love...not call her a half-giant! After storming off, romantic frustration leads her to Hagrid's hut, where she sees beneath the unfashionable suit, and he sees past a French facade.
Aw...what a sweet story! Second only to Tonks and Remus, Hagrid and Olympe's courtship is the best hidden in the books (believe me, I've looked). Anyways, as always, an excellent, thought provoking (never mind what type of thought) piece. :-)
Author's Response: I will heart you forever for your wonderful review! ^_^ Hagrid and Olympe, perhaps because mental images of them in a romantic clinch are disturbing, lol, are overlooked by writers....like an elephant in the living room, LOL.
Summary: 2008 QSQ Awards Runner-up for Best Post-Hogwarts
Harry defeated Voldemort. Harry married Ginny. Harry and Ginny had five children. Harry disappeared. My name is Lily Potter, and this is the story of what happened when my father returned after six years missing to find my mother about to re-marry. This is the story of myself, my crazy family, and most of all, this is the story of my parents and the man who tried to come between them. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
"Oh, I can so die happy now!" -Sirius Potter
Wow...what a cliffie! Damn busy schedules; wouldn't the world be a better place if fanfic authors only had to write? ;)
I love how Harry's been reintroduced to the story. And I no longer consider Dick to be a dick, but an ass :D Not only does he smack Ginny's kids, but he abuses her! How on earth will Harry forgive her for even seeing a man like him?
BTW - I hope to find out these answers really really really soon....like in that next update! *wink*wink*
Author's Response: If all we authors had to do was write, the world wouldn\'t just be better, it would be perfect! I couldn\'t keep Harry from the story for long, especially with Dick becoming more awful with each chapter. Speaking of progressing chapters -- I\'ll try and find time to update soon! Thanks for the review.
Wow, this is excellent! So good, in fact, that I'm skipping my already neglected homework to read and review. And, it was totally worth it. I absolutely love the way that Ginny is characterized. I've never thought of her in that way before, but it's true. She's always had a man (or men) at her side. Starting with her family, then her frequent dates, then Harry, and now "Dick".
Thank you so much for a wonderful story and update soon please! It really makes my day.
Author's Response: Thank you for such a wonderful review! Believe me, I know the avoiding homework game. I\'m glad you liked it, and it will get happier . . . sooner or later.
Curiosity sure isn't a sin, but it killed the cat!
Ew...now Dick creeps me out! What does Ginny see in him? She must really like his attention to start dating such a nasty fellow!
Yay! Harry is alive! Viva Viva Viva. The real question is; why on earth does Luna not want Neville to tell Fred and George? Maybe Harry's disfigured like Neville, or worse. I wonder if Ginny could take the combined shock of having Harry come back and be horribly disfigured or crippled. That would be a tough scene...
Author's Response: I\'m glad the story is inspiring so many theories! Much more will be explained in the next chapter. . . . thanks for the review!
I love updates!
Such a sad chapter, though. While I was reading, I couldn't help but be reminded of PoA when Harry sees his father's Patronus. Could the stag be Harry?
Anyways, not too exciting, but moving. Goooooooood.......
Author's Response: I know, it really was more of a transition chapter. I\'m glad you liked it however, thanks for the review! Harry the stag . . . interesting theory.
Summary: Harry places his thoughts into Dumbledore’s Pensieve in hope to save Ron and Hermione’s relationship. Ron and Hermione delve into the Pensieve and revive essential moments of their Hogwarts experience starting with the day they met. This is a riveting tale, casting Ron and Hermione to the past as they unwind time and memories. As they unfold time will their hearts dare to let each other in? Or is the past too hard to bear?
I've just recently discovered this fic and in all honesty, it's brilliant. I love the fact that it's so different from all of the other Ron/Hermione fics; Ron confesses love, and they live happily ever after. There is no way that people with such stormy personalities could have done that...so props to you for writing, what I think at least, is a much more accurate story.
I think I said this earlier, but I'll say it again, this fic is brilliant and beyond wonderful. I can't wait for more updates (especially when Krum gets involved) :D
Author's Response: thank you so much. I try to stay as true to their characters as possible, therefore they cannot simply kiss and make up, because thats not how Ron and Hermione are. And thankyou for saying its different, that is the biggest complement of all.
