Welcome to the Author Page of Sumayya Ahmed Musani.
*Intimidates you with long title* :D
Below can be found all you need to know about Sammy's written life on MNFF and the adjacent beta boards. Just remember that she is a complete Sev Girl and therefore, should not be annoyed - or the consequences will be dire. :p
Also, it might help your case if you know that she likes chocolate, loves pink, wishes that Harry Potter didn't exist and Lily Junior did, calls Godric Gryffindor several things not appropriate to be quoted here and is known to experience random bursts of hyperness. Her enthusiasm often borders on annoyance, although her friends assure her otherwise, she has an ebil twin who is also ebil, and if you mention the word "Sempra" in front of her, she starts babbling like mad. Her favourite quote from the entire series is "Always" tied right along with "Anything".
NOTE: If you are looking for a way into her good DADA textbooks, you might want to mention how much you love Elmindreda, Severus or Sempra. If you mention all three in that order, there is no way she will be able to refuse you anything.
Now, let her switch back to first person so she can tell you about her published works. ;)

For The Greater Good
Banner by Edwina
A one-shot about Dumbledore and Grindelwald.
A Note About this story: This fic is meant to be a response to all those who claim that they are disappointed to learn the truth about Dumbledore’s sexuality. Some are even going as far as to say that it doesn’t matter what he did for the world because he’s gay. Undoubtfully, Dumbledore has been a somewhat godly figure in our eyes up till Jo’s revelation. Dumbledore always seemed to be the one who knew the answer to everything, the one who gave us hope when things were at their worst. Many of us shed bitter tears when he died (I know I did) and even went as far as to say that he’s not dead even when Jo confirmed otherwise. When we did find out that he was dead, we were still loyal to him and claimed his message will live on forever. We proudly proclaimed that we were Dumbledore’s men through and through. And now we are taking that all back just because he sacrificed his own love for the good of the world. Yes, did you guys ever imagine how hard it must be for the professor to duel and defeat Grindelwald? How he was probably left heartbroken and never loved again? Or can we see only what Rita Skeeter wants us to? Believe the lurid tales of Harry whom Dumbledore loved as his own child? I guess what I am trying to say is that if people really use this excuse to stop respecting Dumbledore then I wouldn’t much care to vouch for their loyalty. In this note, I do not aim to offend anyone but if you’re it’s your guilty conscience talking. If you have any comments about this novel-length note, please feel free to contact me about it.=Sammy
History's Best Kept Secret
Banner by Rachel
Trailer by Molly
My take in what REALLY happened between Godric Gryffindor and Ragnuk The First.
Mark Of Sacrifice
Banner by Ritta
What kind of a writer puts Luna, Viktor, Hestia and the colour blue all in the same fic? Read and find out!
A Stitch In Time
Banner by my Elical! *squishes*
I suppose it cab be said that I am very fond of this Tom- and Sev- centric fic. Mind you, you have to read carefully to understand what’s going on. ;)
Not Such A Happy Ever After
This is my attempt at humour. You have been warned.
My Beloved Darkness
Banner by Hallie
Trailer by Chante
This is the fic that started my Marlene/Fabian ship, and I am so very thankful that it did. This lovely pairing was just begging to be made into a tragic love story.
My WIP that takes place about 25 years after the epilogue in DH. The magical world is once again in need of saving but this time, the Muggles are the enemies… or so it seems. Trapped between two worlds and an ocean of choices, Ted and Victoire are forced to make a choice.
Number two in my Founder Series (aka my quest to prove that Godric Gryffindor was never the hero everyone thought he was). This is written in a letter from Salazar’s POV just before he left Hogwarts.
Marauding Roses of Gryffindor
Banner by Kayla
A joint project with the lovely ladies of Gryffindor, this was originally written for the Sirius Black Valentines day Challenge. Lets see if you can tell which is me. ;)
Good Night, Princess
This is my version of canon. Please argue with me if you like, just know that I am unflinching in my faith and have no problem obliterating the title character of Jo’s wonderful series. ;)
Tendrils of Mist
I suppose this can be a prequel to Good Night, Princess. It really doesn’t matter as long as my canon is established. :p Co-written with my Elical, the ending is what I believe to be Universal Justice.
Black and Gold
Third one-shot in my Founder Series (still trying to besmirch the Good name of Sir Godric Gryffindor), told from Rowena’s POV in second person.
A little experimental fic befitting the NEWT Potions class it was written for. I suppose this can be called an off shot of Reasons.
My Beloved Darkness - Revamped
This is a longer and Chaptered version of the original My Beloved Darkness.
I have deleted most of the above from the archives and will not likely be posting anything new. however, I have not stopped writing and if you still wish to check out my works, please see them on DungeonLight - Illuminating Harry Potter Fanfiction Everywhere.
Thank you for all your support over the years. Please don't be a stranger.=Sammy
Ok, kinda getting sick of the cow/snorcack joke.=Sammy
Author's Response: Then you\'ll be sick of the rest of the story.
Damn funny. I absolutely loved it.Please write more fics like these.lol.
Oh my god. This was fantasxtic becouse I'm a sucker for fluff. **sighs**James is too good to be true but thats why I liked it so much. As if an actual guy would be so romantic.lol.=Sammy
Author's Response: thank you, it\'s kind of near and dear to my heart for certain reasons:)
Really funny start. Will read more later.=Sammy
Laffed madly, made family members worry bout sanity
Well I must say I would have loved to see that go further but I guess it really would complicate the allready too complex plotline.
But you did a great job on this. The way you told this was very sweet, sad and painfull a the same time. You really have a gift when it comes to portraying emotions.=Sammy
Author's Response: Aww, thank you so much! Yeah, I tried to write a sequel once, but I think this just stands better alone. I\'m really glad you liked it!
I finished this story on the link you posted and I must say it was awesome.=Sammy
awwwww, that was really sweet even though i'm not a big fan of this paticular ship.=sammy
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked the poem even though you don\'t quite like the ship :) thanks for reviewing! :D
First of all, what a lovely, lovely fic? Though I will be the first to admit that MNFF has vast amounts of talent (and most loads better then actual published work), I can also be guilty of not getting that warm feeling out of most because the majority of what I read is D/A. In short, it takes a lot to make me go “Aww, what a cute, nice fic”.
Well, I think youy did a good job portraying a young kingsley. His attitude to Muggles and children in general was very realistic as well as frustration with the attire and the fact that he was not really doing anything of importance “on the field”. His uncertainty about children in general is also very believable for a man of his age and background d that you provided.
However, I d have a certain amount of doubt about the little girl. While I do think that you did a good job with the girl’s characterization, the child seemed (to me) entirely too perceptive for someone her age (even if it is Hermione). Don’t get me wrong, I will be the first to agree that children are a lot more perceptive then given credit for but the way the little girl was written, it was like the you wanted to drive that point in., I think a little subtleness would have worked best here.
Warning: I am always very partial to being subtle. As in, I believe that what we say is far less impacting then what we don’t. And the following is heavily influenced by my personal belief.
No doubt, this is a very sweet and touching story. It also carries a deep meaning about wanting to do good in the world and how small acts of kindness can shape the world. It sets forth a moral that is though very common, something that should still be ingrained in everyone.
However, as I mentioned earlier, the same message could have been delivered to the reader in a more subtle way. For instance, Kingsley, while explaining the fundamentals of doing good to the child gives off the impression if talking more to himself then the child. He could have been less clear and fired the child’s curiosity even more. And especially towards the ending, I don’t believe that Hermione needed to have repeated every single thing that Kingsley had told her as a child, word by word. No, I do not doubt her intelligence even at that age but more the fact that she wouldn’t be so open about such a private experience. It was a little like the you were trying very hard to say that Kingsley was the man Hermione had met all those years ago.
Other then that slight nitpick (which may just be my and my picky nature) I think this fic was really very well done. It is definitely a sweet read and I would recommend it to people just for the warm and fuzzy feeling that the reader gets after finishing it. Because it shows that no matter how hard things get, even the smallest deed counts and can grow like a seed from the ground.=Sammy
This was a very powerful poem and Ginny must be thinking it at a very emotional time. The reason why I liked this so much is because it was straightforward and yet implied as much as it confirmed. *wonders if she is making sense*
The one teeny tiny bit of critique I would have is that the poem flowed too much like prose. In my opinion there is a fine line between poetry and prose and it would have been excellent if you had used this poem to write a one shot like a song fic. *ditto*
Other then that, it was great and if you don't think I'm sane, you're probably right because I stay up at night and make my own notions about what real poetry is *huggles*=Sammy
Author's Response: Always good to get a review from an (in)sane person =D Thank you very much for the critique
Oh. My God!
I was really expecting not to find any nitpicks when reading this story because I know what an amazing writer you are but this still took me by surprise. This story, I can’t call it angst for some reason. Because though you deal with heavy subject matter, its all so matter of fact to Rodulphus.
The way you describe him and his surroundings, I can see the events unfolding in front of my eyes. The dank corridors, the smell of the rotten algae and all the rest. *shudders*
This is probably the best take I have seen an Rodulphus and Bella’s relationship. The simple fact that’s she doesn’t care about him, hasn’t cared for him for a while now, its sad still. The worst part is that he has had to live with this knowledge for so long now. Somehow, its worse then actually being turned down by someone you love.
Even when she met him for the last time and literally sent him to his death, she could not even be bothered to say goof bye, only to not disappoint her Lord. *sniffs* This was written so simply and it really hit home.
The only tiny error I found was a typo… I think… and I am most probably wrong there.
The face, which together with her wax-coloured hands was all had seen of her body for years.
I think you’re missing a “he” there. As in –
The face, which together with her wax-coloured hands was all he had seen of her body for years.
Is short, I think you have done a really lovely job, Anna. You took a very simpler and well knows fact from canon and turned it into such a moving piece without any melodrama. I think that is what I enjoyed the most about this fic. The lack of any drama and yet the presence of all the events that usually justify it.
It was a real pleasure reading this. *pickles*=Sammy
That was a nice one though I personally don't ship Hermione and Draco.-Sammy
Author's Response: thanks.<3
Nice too and is there going to be any more cuz I noticed in the summary thar its not finished yet.=Sammy
Author's Response: i\'m really not sure if its the last one or not. The second part was spur of the moment. so you never know. thanks for reviewing.
Awwwww. That was such a sweetfull poem. I absolutely adored the last stanza.=Sammy
Don't take as long to update the next time=Sammy
Hurry up wid da update
Amazing story. I'm currently on a hunt for rarepairs and I came across yours.
It was an awesomely noughty read and I loved it. Your cgaracterization of Severes is brilliant as always.
I looked hard but couldn't find any flaws at all.=Sammy
That was a really cute story. It got the point across well but there were certain things lacking in it.
Fist off, your story is almost entire based on dialog alone. Dialog is admittedly a strong plot devise but we, as writers should never underestimate the power of description. Setting your surroundings and clarifying your emotions is something that helps the reader enjoy your story even more. As the age old saying goes, show mot tell!
Now I realize that this was a one shot so you were somewhat limited lengthwise bit thats no excuse. There are some amazing one shots out there and MNFF allows a one shot to be up to 10 000 words.
I am so sorry if I'm being mean but I would love nothing more then to see you become the best writer you can be *hugs*=Sammy
