Name: Keira (pronounced ke-ra)
Hair: red/brown (often refered to as auburn)
Favorite Books: Well, Harry Potter, of course… other than that I read, like, teen romance and stuff like that…
Likes: reading, writing, listening to music, hanging out with friends, sticking my head out car windows and telling ugly guys they’re hot, pretending that I’m on Oprah for being in a Harry Potter movie, eating animal crackers, and just being a kool person…. (I know I am as modest as James Potter)
Dislikes: people that tell me how I feel, people that say they’re better than me (or anyone else), people that say that having red hair is weird (IT’S KOOL!), and people that say I’m weird for reading Harry Potter fanfics (they just don’t understand! *tears*)
Television: I watch One Tree Hill, CSI: NY, Gilmore Girls, America’s Next Top Model, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance?, Dancing With the Stars, the Class, CSI: all of them, Friends, Shark, Numb3rs, Cold Case, and Without a Trace.
Movies: The HP movies... Dirty Dancing, Grease, Center Stage, the Notebook, Mean Girls, Grease, Never Been Kissed, How to Deal, 10 things I hate about you, etc. etc.
Music: KT Tunstall, Anna Nalick, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Hinder, All-American Rejects, Fall Out Boy, JoJo, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, etc etc.
Favorite Characters: Lily, Luna, James, Hermione, Ginny, Sirius, Ron, Harry, Dumbledore, Malfoy (just because he's hot)
Harry/Ginny- that’s just so perfect, he was her childhood crush, and then they end up together...
Lily/James- just because they seem so perfect together, that they are polar opposites, just shows how much passion they have… and you can’t yell at someone as much as Lily yells at James without having passion…
Ron/Hermione- that’s just really obvious….
Lupin/Tonks- I don’t know why, it just seems right, don’t you think?
Favorite HP book: HBP, because JKR put what every teenager goes through and spun it to match the drama in her world. It’s all teenage romance-y and dramatic, and heart felt, and, I just LOVE it, so get off my case!
FanFic annoyance: 1) when people mess up Dumbledore dialogue. I hate it when he sounds like a person that doesn't sound right. He talks very slowly and wisely, I don't think that Dumbledore is the kind of person that would ramble on and on, and I hate it when authors make him sound that way. 2) when Lily falls in love too quickly. In some stories, it's like all of a sudden OMGosh! I love him! I always have! Maybe that's just me, but I think that love is too complex to just wake up one day and be like "WOW! I'm in love!" It just doesn't sound right to me. 3) when people make Lily short. I don't really remember what the description was in the books, but in the movie, when Harry looked into the mirror of Erised, I don't think that Lily looked short. Maybe that's just because I can't remember the book description and I am totally going against the facts placed down by JKR, or maybe it's because I'm tall, but I just feel weird when people say that Lily is short. 4) just plain corny stuff. I hate stories that sound corny. Sometimes I read them anyway, because I like the story line, but those are the stories that I don't leave reviews to.
"Love is unexplainable. There are no words for it. You can’t express why you feel so. It just happens," James said. "“Don’t you think that if I had the choice I would have chosen to love someone who didn’t hate me in return?”
“No,” Sirius said simply.
“You’re right.” James said, sighing. “I’m so screwed up, Padfoot.”
The drama-filled romantic tale of Lily and James's mysterious but unfortunate tale. It started with love and ended with death. It makes you wonder about the things they tried to live for. Pre-HBP
I KNEW IT!! they were playing hopscotch! I guessed right! YAY!
Summary: *How far would you go for love?* "If you touch her again, I'll kill you." "Go ahead for I'll come to her again and again." *Is it worth it?* "James leave her alone, she's no good for you." "Don't say a word against Lily!" *Will it last?* "It's forever, I've known it sice the day I met you." "Forever is a long time." "Not if you love someone..." I am finally re-editing this story, please take a look and see all the new stuff!
I LOVE this story...it was totally fluffy in ALOT of places... (but did I mention that I love fluffy??).... I'm gonna take a look at your other stories...so don't disappoint me...
All's fair in love and war
Lily thinks herself too clever to fall for James Potters charm. Yet, as the two of them are appointed Head Boy and Girl, will Lily regret her negative feelings towards James? Pre-HBP
I read romance fan fiction because I'm looking for what love really is. I know that there is no way I can find it in real life, so I try to read as many books(fan fics), watch as many movies, and listen to as many songs that will show me what love really is. I come from a broken home where my parents loved eachother, and then my dad suddenly stopped, and that has put a damper on my heart when it comes to love. But reading this, I just wish that this kind of love, passion, exceptance, and overall joy would be more promenant in the world today. Thank you for writting this. It made me believe. It really has.
Until I realize that no matter what happens latter on in your story. No matter how happy they will be. No matter how much they love each other, they're going to die, leaving one less feeling of love in the world. I wish all happy ending didn't have to be a sad ending.
Summary: A series of fluffy and completely romantic one shots about that particular romantic moment in 70s Hogwarts... *Completed as soon as part 4 is posted!*
Harry is so in love with Ginny! And taht is completely ok with me... Yeah, that was kinda randow, but I can't help it, I'm a faithful Harry/Ginny shipper.....
yeah, I loved all 4 one shots taht you made, they were all very unique in diffrent ways
Lily Evans has always pushed guys away, keeping her distance away from heartbreak. If she never got too attatched, she would never get hurt.
Yet, James Potter refuses to be pushed away. Will he be the one to actually tear down Lily's walls that separate them?
I loved tha book, and this story is awesome so far
I'm just going to answer the questions that you asked---
1)LIlly, I loved how you based her on the book This Lullaby, but still gave her your own sparks...
2)Leah... I relate to her best...
3)my favorite chapter was #16 "Let me go" I don't know why... I guess cuz it was dramatic
4)"Hearts are never made practical until they are made unbreakable" in the story you said that it was taken from a movie... what movie? Ever since I read that yesterday, I've been writing it down everywhere so that I'll remember it...
5)Ethan... he was an bloody a-hole
6)yes, I've read the book... I think that the basis of this story is based on th ebook which is okay, but you also brought in the JKR-ness, and also your own spark, so no, it was DEFINITLY not based too much on This Lullaby...
7)you have too many stories... It's hard to read all of them... but I've read alot of them... you can go searching for my other reviews if you want!
Summary: James Potter has pursued Lily Evans for six years, and for six years she's spurned him. Now, in their seventh year, Lily notices something that's been hiding inside her. When the two are locked in the ever-so-cliched locked room, can she work out her inner turmoil in enough time to speak her mind? One-shot MWPP seventh year, songfic to the song "I Don't Know How to Love Him," with a little creative interpretation and a different ending. W00t for Broadway musicals!
AWWWWWWWWW, so cliched, but so sweet.... I love cliche...
Summary: I guess I should write AU… Anyway, this is how I would like the last chapter of Book Seven to be… What do you say?
LOVE IT! SO ORIGINAL! I wish that all of those dreadful things that happen to Harry were all just a long dream sequence. That would be an amazin g twist, especially if JKR decides to kill off more of the good characters that we all love.
I heard that she cried because of who she killed in the 7th book. That scares me a little to read it. But I'll have it at midnight the night it comes out! I won't let fear slow me down! I am a TRUE Gryffindor!
Summary: One-Shot written to "She's a Rebel" by Green Day
I love it! This story is amazing! I hope to hear some updates soon... I mean, This is good enough to be the end, but still, I think that a longer story would be awesome!
Summary: James Potter is an obnoxious, arrogant prat. Lily Evans is stubborn and a bit arrogant herself. James loves Lily. Lily hates James. Will James ever conquer the love of his life when his each and every attempt always fails spectacularly? Humor is guaranteed thanks to the one and only, Sirius Black!
AMAZING STORY! I couldn't stop reading! so that's my excuse for not reviewing the other chapters... yeah, I know, weak excuse, but it's the thought that counts right? Anyways... I loved the story... ♥
Summary: James Potter and Lily Evans weren't exactly buddies at first sight. They began virtually as enemies. Gradually, however, they came to respect each other and like each other at Hogwarts. Somehow, that like turned to an eternal love.
Described through the memories of all who knew them, this is the story that follows them through the seven years in Hogwarts, as their rocky relationship develops into a bond that becomes the envy everyone. This is the story that describes the difficulties that they encounter during the terrible years of You-Know-Who's reign. This is the story of the parents of The Boy who Lived. This is the story of the love between Lily Evans and James Potter.
Chapter Five (Friends?) posted - Lily walks into the world she never knew.
Sorry for the (very long) delay.
I read in your bio that you have like, 20 chapters written for this story... please update soon, this story is amazing! I love the context. How your turning the future into the past, and how Lily is remembering all of these things.
Okay. Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay
For all of you who wanted an update, I have a proposition. You may or may not like it, but it's all I can offer.
Check review challenge for the last chapter. details there!
James and Lily Potter were possibly the most famous parents in wizarding history. We know alot about their adult life, but what do we really know about their childhood? Even Harry never knew about the Drama, jealousy, danger, friendships, happiness, sadness, resentment,confusion and love that his parents went through as children. Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.
THEY R SOOO CUTE 2GETHER!!!
I would change it so that James wasn't under a stupid love potion! (that is my answer to both this challenge, and the last 1)
YAY!! I GUESSED THE LOVE POTION!!! YESSSSSSSS!
You'd think with that stupid butt whole being th ebloody cowrd he is, that James && Lily wouldn't trust him to be their secret keeper.... but maybe that's just my marvoulous brains working...
Anyways, I just finished this story in one sitting, so I'm going to review this whole story, so I'm going to review the whole story: I love the whole idea of this story, the fact that you would put the thought and commitment into writting a story of all Lily and James's years at Hogwarts. But I also find it intriguing, and I know that I'll be coming back to read the rest of the story, I hope that you keepp up with it.
And on a diffrent note (or notes) I I loved how you threw in the love potion as the reason that James fell for that... um... (*searching for an apropriat term*)... Scarlet Woman? Yeah, that will do. Your imagination for this story is broad, but you are still working off of J.K. R's work. (and if you look back at some of my previous reviews, I did guess that, I get a point! YAY!)
Well I hope I didn't bore you with my slightly elaborate review, and I hope to see your update soon!
OMG!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE that Lily likes James, I can't wait to see how you flip this around.....
Author's Response: thanks :):) it makes it original anyway doesnt it? I\'m so sorry but I have a feeling you wont get to see how i flip this around and thats the honest truth... im starting to grow out of this story! the next update will PROBABLY be my last...
Summary: Summary: Life for fifteen-year old Lily Evans is pretty crazy. So when Gods-gift-to-the-women-of-Hogwarts, James Potter himself, develops a crush on her, life gets even crazier. And with an insane, gorgeous best friend who belongs in a house for the criminally mad, a bunch of Marauders playing pranks and plenty of laughs, her only retreat is her faithful diary. Yes it’s shaping up to be quite a year…
This story is now in the process of being re-written. Please keep an eye on my author's page as I will update it with a note when I begin to put up the rewritten chapters.
LOL!! My cousin's name is Melissa Thompson.... lol.... great chappie!! I loved it! && I love how you use the Aussie slang, I don't understand a word, but, it's fun to read.... but I uderstand the italian! YAY 4 me!
OMGawsh! AWESOME!!!!!! AWESOME!!!!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!! (I just realized that one of my friends from last year, has a friend named Rhinnon, yeah.... that was kinda dumb, but, yeah...lol)
Lily Evans has never particularily liked James Potter, but when she decides to look at him in a different light, she may change her mind... One shot song-fic, based on the song Everywhere by Michelle Branch.
That was an amazing one shot. I was wondering if you had an inclination to write a full story on it. And use this as the chapter that Lily and James got together. I would love to here the whole story that you invisioned that lead to this moment....
just a request... let me know if you do decide to turn it into a longer story so I know to read it...
Author's Response: thanks :):) but no i dont have any plans to make this into a proper story... it doesn\'t really leave me much space for improvement i dont think... so no :) but im glad you liked it :)
okay, so I take back my other review... I've already read your other story... and now I'm wondering if this one shot is where you want that one to lead? You're a wonderful writter! I hope to hear more from you....
