17-years-old, Mexican girl who loves reading Fan-Fiction and used to write it (though in her own language).
Oh, she also has a twin sister, and the two of them happen to be the most dutiful Weasleys Twin's and Marauder's pupils.
Summary: A different sort of alternate universe... It is a world under the thumb of an ancient emperor. Muggle society has been oppressed beyond recognition. Wizards rule over all, their only laws defined by power. This is the story of a rebellion, a family, a traitor, and the long road that leads home at last.
At this point, a review is well deserved.
For starters, the Prologue was quite catching itself. I especially liked the first scene with Turpin and the Seer.
I’ll continue with random commentaries, cause I’ve forgot all I wanted to write when I was reading. Not good memory here, you see.
You’re making a great job introducing us your world. Really, it’s not rushed and not so slow for us to not catch up, and it’s being detailed wonderfully, still giving us the bigger picture. Those extract form Turpin’s Rule Book are a witty way to put in necessary information without overloading the narration. And they are very interesting too, your whole alternative universe is.
What else? I had a good laugh making a mental image of what the Dog Pack would look like. Really, that bold, intrepid little squirrel…
You have created/adapted many characters in this story, but I take my hat off and bow for the young, powerful Professor Tom Riddle. The introduction of him was brilliant. I felt bad for Draco (another character I admire), but it made Riddle’s role the more powerful, and well, Third-Tier like.
My twin had told me the entire story up to this chapter, and some random bits of the plot and characters ahead (says Lupin’s background is interesting, to say the least), and I really have to shut her up, ‘cause I would have liked it all to be surprise.
We were wondering, have you watched/read Full Metal Alchemist? It was my latest obsession, and this Fic fits with the mood and some other things.
Alas, kinda longer than I thought.
See you some chapters ahead!
Author's Response: Hello! Welcome to my universe :) I\'m so in awe of bilingual people. I hope you continue to enjoy the story, and Peace!
Summary: And to top it all, he had found himself a girl. And not just any girl. A girl worthy of touching a Malfoy, quite a difficult requirement to meet.
Absolutely fantastic story.
Until half an hour ago I had a different favorite Draco, but blimey! Yours is such a lovely prat that made it to number one.
I'd love see more of this story.
It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.
No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.
Update (9 May): Chapter 17, Burning, is up! Enjoy!
You've got another loyal new reader in here, very eager to find out how the rest of the story goes. Oh gad, I just love it! Your a great write, you know? And you definetely know how to handle everybody's personalities. Please, please don't take ages to submit the next chapter! Great plot! Unique! Greetz!
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.

Don't know if you find this flattering, but I memorized your entire story. Weird, I know, I can't do that with far much shorter school-notes which I actually intend to memorize. But when I was done with first chapters I couldn't help myself from telling the story to my twin, and to my friend, and to other friend - and neither of them were together.
Let's just say that I'm still trying to find what these last days’ classes were about.
One of my friends even suggested me to translate this story to Spanish, so that they could read (and not only hear) it too, and though I was tempted I don't find myself able (nor I have your permission).
What I find best of this story is that it gives us a lot of answers; how the Marauders met? How are each families like? How did they found about Lupin’s little furry problem? How did they rivalry with Snape begun? And practically everything you’ve written so far.
Sometimes I just go like ‘Hey! Did you now that James played piano?’ that I forget that this is actually a Fan Fic and you’re not Rowling (cause you’re not, are you?).
Let’s consider all the 'I-loved-your-Fic, you’re-an-amazing-writer, I’m-waiting-for-an-update-soon’ thing implied in the half-feet long review above.
Author's Response: Thank you for a wonderful review, I smiled all the way reading it. I find the fact you were able to memorize it effortlessly extremely flattering, and I actually giggled -- I NEVER giggle -- when you said you were telling it to your friends!
Heh, if you think you\'re able to translate it into Spanish, don\'t hesitate to give it a try. I\'m certainly not pushing you though, I\'ve been trying to translate a fic into French for quite a long time and I know how difficult it is.I am indeed trying to give answers for everything I\'ve been wondering about, when reading the HP books. I am happy you liked those answers :). Thank you again for the nice and long review!
I was literally jumping when saw there was an update - and what an update! I seriously enjoyed it, if such a thing is possible, and am really grateful for your writing this up, even if sparing the time from your sleep hours.
I think I made a wise decision reading the previous chapter before, and I was once again very thrilled with the idea of giving them a hell of a school-term beginning: guess it can only get better for them now, true? Though this last chapter wasn’t all roses, was it?
Can’t help myself but grinning any time an episode of young & reckless Maraudering takes place.
Twin says she loved it, too.
Hope you get all sorts of good ideas, inspiration and free-time in this very near future!
Author's Response: Thank YOU a lot for this review--it made me smile in a quite silly way for some reason. I\'m happy you like the story that much, and I agree, I didn\'t want everything to go too smooth for them--but it\'ll get better, that\'s for sure. I\'m now trying to update another story (trying being the key word) but I won\'t abandon Symphony; so I\'ll update... eventually.
Friendship, Love, and Pranks: The Story of the Marauders by Padfoot is MINE
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 1181]
Summary: Chapter Thirty-Eight in Queue!
They say someday your life will flash before your eyes...
The Marauders. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of teachers and makes girls swoon. Watch as Sirius, who has always kept his emotions locked up in a box, finally finds the girl that has its key; as James masterminds everything, except how to win over the girl of his dreams; as Remus finds love, but learns it's just as hard to keep it going, and as Peter tries to prove he's just as good as the other four, no matter what he has to do. They're unstoppable, and it's safe to say that once they're gone, Hogwarts will never be the same again.
...let's make ours worth watching.
The cookie offer really did the trick, you know?
I finally caught up with the story and I think it was the worst moment to do it - Adriyana's amnesia? Sirius being a dumped gentleman? Lily's schizophrenia (a.k.a. James Potter)? Now I wonder how long do you usually take to update a new chapter... 10 minutes?
Now that I am an 'official reader' I guess I gotta be patient (but still, it can't honestly get you more than a day to update, can it?) I guess I'm going to sit here and wait until something suddenly changes in the screen...
Keep on the good work and the funny bits,
Author's Response: Haha, \"Adriyana\'s Amnesia\" was the original title of this chapter...
Worst moment, huh? Like in an \"Oh, the suspense!\" way (which I was sort of going for, or a \"Grrrr, please die!\" way? Sirius hasn\'t been dumped....well, not exactly. You\'ll have to wait and see! I hope I can post the next chapter in the next few days, too.
Summary: After defeating Voldemort, Harry Potter was about to become the most adulated wizard in the History of Wizardkind. But he ruined it all. And he's damn proud of it.
Here am I again.
I so wanted to read a story like this! Where good or bad acts depend on the mind that judge them. It got me from the first line, really.
Moving on to read more of those stories of yours.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I\'m very happy you were hooked so easily :). I hope you like the rest of my stories.
