I am a proud graduate of the University of South Carolina and am now living in the southern US. While I can't promise I'll write any more as a band director than I did as a college student, I will at least finally have money to support my habits. My favorite stories on here are Oblivious and Imperius by Pallas, and Hogwarts Houses Divided and the Alexandra Quick series by Inverarity. I suggest checking all of those stories out!
His fears? Flying...his own wand...fitting in...sticking out! His best friends? A passionate fire-breathing cousin, and a cool, aloof Death Eater's son. His destiny? Anything but ordinary!
Join Albus as he experiances his first year at Hogwarts and begins the journey out from under his father's collosal shadow, if he can survive it of course!
Meet the new Tenacious Trio, Albus Potter, Scorpius Malfoy, and Rose Weasley
Hurray for odd friendships!
Your dialogue is great, but try to work some on your descriptions and verb tenses. Every now and then I get a little confused.
Keep it up! I'm enjoying your story!
Well, you turned Hogwarts on its head, indeed! That was a nice twist! Keep up the good work!
"Albus would swear on Dumbledore’s beard he had seen her eyes glow red before, but it could have been the morning light." = genius. :D
Make sure to watch your punctuation; there were several sentences that I found confusing. Keep up the good work!
Ooh, I love the sound of the Arboretum! I am a HUGE plant-lover; my apartment looks like a jungle. You have a great imagination! Keep it up!
Your imagination knows no bounds. : ) Charlie has always been one of my personal favorites, and you made him delightfully evil! Kudos!
Summary: It’s not impossible for a Slytherin to marry a Gryffindor. They just might not agree on how to decorate the house.
A very fluffy AU one-shot about what might have happened if Lily Evans had wound up with Severus Snape.
HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I actually laughed out loud when I read this! Great job with characterization, and I must say it's nice to see a happy Snape.
Please write more!
Author's Response: I\'m so glad you liked it-- it was really fun to write. :) I\'m working on a longer fic, same main characters, and if you read the utterly miserable Chapter 2, you\'ll see why I took a break to write this one. Trying to picture what he\'d be like with Lily was an interesting challenge. I would guess that with the Marauders or, really, practically anyone else other than professors he respects, he\'d still be scathing and prickly, but with her he\'d be somewhat different-- hence this story. Thank you for the review!
Summary: Two years after Voldemort's downfall, Headmistress McGonagall finds a puzzling decrease in new Muggle-born students. Consulting the magic Quill, she and Flitwick find even wizarding children being born without magical ability. Each year fewer students are listed. If the decline continues, within decades the classrooms of Hogwarts will be half empty. Concerned how far the problem spreads, McGonagall sends a message to the Quill schools of the other continents.
In Brazil, the world of magic is revealed to a young homeless girl. When Marissa cautiously accepts an education in the wizarding world, the choice will lead her to an object somehow tied to the unknown cause of the wizarding decline. But as she struggles to show any ability at all, she is unsure if she even belongs in their world. What role can a neglected street beggar have in events that wizarding schools of all the world may soon be part of?
I just read all four chapters, and you've got me hooked. While you do have a lot of grammatical errors, your vivid descriptions of Marissa's life more than make up for it! I can't wait to see where you go with this story. Please keep writing!
Author's Response: Thanks for your review and for forgiving any poor sentence structure that slips through (I confess to a grammatical errorry writing style).
Summary: On the eve of Harry Potter's arrival at Hogwarts a solitary woman sits alone in her tower room contemplating the interwoven fabric of destiny and its effect on all the chess pieces of this war.
Overall winner of the Summer challenge!!
Absolutely brilliant. And with such great grammar, as well! The only thing I caught was "with professors their brother's", which shouldn't have an apostrophe. Great job with this. Your story really made me think, and you can't ask for better than that!
Author's Response: Thanks for that little mistake - I hadn't even spotted it, but glad you pointed it out. I'm glad I made you think, that was the intention with this piece so I regard it as a job well done! Lol, thanks so much for your review x
