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
Summary: Over ten years after Hogwarts, Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny find that they can't escape from all their problems just yet. Loosly based on Oscar Wilde's "An Ideal Husband". RHr HG
Don't take as long to update the next time=Sammy
Hurry up wid da update
Summary: The Order has held its first meeting in No. 12, Grimmauld Place, and two of the members are lingering to discuss their chances. A Snape/Tonks moment, prompted by a musing on what talents went naturally with Legilimency.
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
Summary: Really just Hermione's POV when she finds out she's pregnant, One-Shot
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
Summary: What does James Potter have up his sleeve this Valentine's Day? Check it out.
Oh my god Pr€€thi, you won't b€lli€v€ this but my po€m , €ntitl€d, To Lily, With Lov€, just got aproov€d by a mod and it f€arur€s th€ sam€ id€a as yours. This is an €xtr€m€ly amazing coincid€nc€ as I'v only just cam€ across this po€m.
Off cours€ min€ do€sn't hav€ th€ sam€ words as yours but...wow. I gu€ss fanfic writ€r's minds r€ally do think alik€.
Anyway, ch€€rs to you for a gr€at job on this po€m.=Sammy
Author's Response: Wow, that is weird. Maybe fanfiction writer\'s minds do work the same. *giggles*
Summary: The Malfoys are entertaining, and it is time for little Draco to go to bed. He, of course, can think of better things to do than sleep.
That was an awesome fic. I simply love the way you write. It is very unique and gives a lot of information under the pretence. I also like how you make Snape sound like a human beeing( sorry, bad joke ).
Overall, it was a fantastic fic and an absolute pleasure to read and review.=Sammy
Summary: Amazing how something born from insignificance and a dire need to measure up is the one thing that brings Ginny Weasley back. One-shot.
This was an amazing story. If I were to describe it, I would call it a coming of age story. The emotions that Ginny felt are varied and are directly linked to that of the wizarding world and the events of the books, but I can't help thinking that the gist of them was what would have been felt by a lot of girls growing up, like confusion and uncertainty..
The way in which you describe your story makes me think of you painting a beautifully detailed picture with your words. Indeed, your minute description of everything leaves nothing to the imagination and gives the reader no problem in seeing the scene you set.
The flow was also very well done and everything just seemed to fall in place. I think its called "Geniusness" but I'm not sure.
I tried to comb this piece for error but came up squat so perhaps the one I'm about to mention now is only in my imagination or just displays my lack of grammar knowledge:
With a rush of energy, Ginny was off again, back towards the clump trees,
Shouldn't it be:
With a rush of energy, Ginny was off again, back towards the clump of trees,
Once again it was a pleasure reading this fic.=Sammy
Summary: It's years after the war and the right people won. After all that time, however, Ron has yet to tell Hermione how he feels. What does a letter from some unkown sender do to push him in the right direction?
That was really sweet
Summary: The Marauders are in their second year and it is a beautiful day. Of course James would want to play some Quidditch. But is Remus the athletic type?
This is just a little piece I wrote for Quidditch Tryouts on the MNFF Forums last fall. I see it as a companion piece to my larger fic, Moments of Bliss, a sort of missing scene, if you will.
This was a great story. I liked the flow and the idea behind it. You portrayed Remus very well indeed.
The only nitpick I have is the boys calling each other by their marauder names.
As we know from cannon, they were named after the animal they chose to turn into. Now as the marauders are in second year and perhaps even unaware of Remus' "furry little problem", it is very unlikely that they would call each other by the names they will develope 3 years later.
I'm very sorry for the nitpick and I know I'm a horrible person so please forgive me.
Like I said, your story was good, so was the characterisation and pretty much everything was.
Great job and keep writing.=Sammy
Author's Response: Thank you, Sammy. I\'m glad you enjoyed it. Regarding the use of nicknames, Remus is the only one who actually has one in the story and I used it because the Marauders strike me as the types to give a nickname almost as soon as they have reason, as they did with Snivellus on first meeting him. Since we know they learned of Remus\' lycanthropy in second year, and I\'ve always thought it would have been early in the year, I figure they would have started calling him Moony by the time this scene takes place. Anyway, that is the way I have always imagined it. You are certainly not a horrible person for disagreeing, though again, the others are not called by theirs. ;) I\'m very glad you found my portrayal of Remus done well. That is always the most important thing for me. Thank you again. :)
Summary: A music laden fic about Remus and Tonks. This fic takes place at Grimmauld Place after Harry's fifth year.
Another wonderefully musical chapter. Good job. I hope Remus and Tonks make up.=Sammy
I love a happy ending. Great job.=Sammy
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for all of your reviews. -----RMV
Awwww. I'm really loving this.
Just one thing. Sirius is Tonks' mothers cousin so doesn't that make him an uncle of sorts to Tonks?=Sammy
Author's Response: I think it would make them second cousins, but I could be wrong. Thanks for the review. -----RMV
Summary: A love note from James to Lily, during the Marauders' days. I like to think she kept it.
Author's Response: xDDD thanks. That\'s what I like to hear!
Summary: Severus Snape has taken a teaching job at Hogwarts, and he intends to teach, not act as a confindent for silly little students, thank you very much. But while he tries to keep himself as isolated as possible, there is one particular student who can't help but fall for the grumpy potions' master.
That was so, so sad. Poor Tonks.
But I really liked the way you portrayed Snape. He is really grouchy and even though knows Tonks fancies him; he also knows that it is not right. It is so sweet of him to be the bad guy in this situation and not give Tonks any false hope.
It was a pleasure reading and reviewing this fic and this ship. Now of we keep this fic in mind it seems perfectly ok to see how she fell for Remus later. I guess Tonks likes her man older and wiser.
The only mistake I found was that Sirius is kinda like Tonk's uncle and not second cousin (at least in my mind) and I've seen loads of writers say it the same way so you might want to just ignore that.
Anyways, great job fellow Gryff *waves red and gold pom poms*=Sammy
Summary: A collection of sonnets that would be very, very fun to read to Voldy, that is, if you don't mind the getting killed part. If you don't know, a sonnet is a short fourteen-line poem that takes less than thirty seconds to read. I know. I timed myself. It's great for people with short attention spans. If you have a really short attention span, read a haiku.
Psst, I think this line has a typo:
He he the sense to take a look around,
And win and end don't rhyme.
Another lovely sonnet to Volders, YAY!!=Sammy
Author's Response: oops, you\'re right! I\'ll fix that. And win and end can rhyme if I want them to! :)
I loved the last two lines of this.=Sammy
Awww, leave poor Voldy alone, he's dead allready.=Sammy
His hair is dripping, weeping tears of grease
For cold neglect; it's not been washed in years.
Apart from duckies, bunnies, and John Cleese,
You'll find shampoo among his greatest fears
No matter how much I praise it, I cannot do these lines justice.=Sammy
Author's Response: hehe thanks! That\'s definitely my favorite stanza out of all of them
And now I laugh into your hairless face.
Mwahahahahahahahah. You really are EVIL. Can't wait for the next Sonnet.=Sammy
