Greetings Earthlings! My first name is actually Minerva, though Evenstar is from Lord of the Rings. I am a Virgo that has lost her sanity!
I LOVE TO READ fantasy books and poetry. The only works I cherish that are not those genres are A Separate Peace, The Outsiders, and Philippa Gregory's books. Emily Dickinson, Longfellow, and Shakespeare are the poets I enjoy most.
My favourite fantasies (besides Harry Potter) are: The Hobbit by John Ronald Raoul Tolkien Inheritance Trilogy (a.k.a. Eragon) by Christopher Paolini Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith Gaurdians of Time by Marianne Curley Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud Young Wizards by Diane Duane His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan Death Gate Cycle by Weis and Hickman The Adept by Kurtz and Harris Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer Children of the Red King by Jenny Nimmo 'Wolf' series by Jane Lindskold Midnight Predator by Amelia Atwater Rhodes Merry Gentry by Laurel K. Hamilton Sabriel by Garth Nix.
James/Lily - I favour the Marauders' era over Harry's. Who doesn't adore a lovehate relationship full of banter in a magical world at war?
Hermione/Draco - In the books I know Hermione shall end up with Ron, but I prefer fan fictions where she is with Draco because I dislike Ron; I think he is funny, but terribly shallow. Draco on the other hand...Well, an ambitious, rich boy belongs with a stubborn genius because they both have elegant taste and can put each other in their place.
Remus/Sirius - I know many of you are thinking,"Oh my gosh! Slash...EW!" Well, if homosexuality bothers you I pity you for being prejudice and closed-minded. I prefer fics about them when they are in school rather than as adults because they're more fun to read and compose. By the time they're adults they've suffered so much that I can't make the tale as light-hearted as I'd like. I know Remus is with Tonks in the novels, however, I am passionately in love with Remus. I found Tonks infuriatingly inquisitive and unorganised since Order of the Phoenix, (You know, the book where there was no indication of romance whatsoever between her and Remus?) so Remus is either Sirius' or HE'S MINE! Thanks, I just wanted to make that clear. lol
Regarding Reviews: I want to be a professional writer someday, so I appreciate constructive critism and I thrive on compliments! Flames, on the other hand, are useless to me. If a person flames me I make fun of them since I do not deserve to be flamed; nobody does. Ever notice that most flamers have none of their own stories? I have never, ever flamed anyone and I always review whatever I read.

When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unkown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly. Patrick Overton

Also, feel free to visit my website called "Never be Normal" on the link at the top. Well, enough about me, how was your day?
I LOVE this fic!!! Are you ever updating???
HAHAHAHA What a hysterical chapter! You are a very good writer. 10/10
I put your fic on my favourites page tis that awesome! Please update soon.
The begining when The Marauders were whispering to eachother was very funny. I thought everyone was canon. You really should write another one shot sequel about when Regulus tells the Blacks about Sirius and when Remus and Sirius tell James and Peter that they're a couple. 9/10!!! Great job!
I truly believe that's how Lupin would react. Perfect 10!!!
Author's Response: Thank you ever so!
10! Everyone was in character! Several parts made me laugh and, oh I could go on; you did such a great and swankified job!
This definately deserves a 10! I loved the parts between Sirius and McGongall and Dumbledore as Inspector Jacques Clouseau.
I swear to you I am not exaggerating: With your remarkable ability of keeping everyone in character and wonderful sense of humour you have created one of the greatest Harry Potter fan fictions in history!!! Twas great seeing the list completed and how the trio are now making their own list!
I LOVE this story!!! Are you ever updating???
That was not crap at all. I can tell Raven knows about Remus' secret, but why is he the only one she can trust? Is Raven a werewolf too? That would be a cool twist. I guess I shall have to wait and find out! 10/10 for you!!!
long review: I have waited FOREVER for you update and I was not at all disappointed!!! “Well if you don’t like her and you’re good friends with her, can’t you put in a good word for me?” pleaded Sirius. “No,” replied Remus. “My powers can only be used for good.” HAHAHAHEEHEEHEEHEEHAHAHA Okay, so I was wrong about Raven being a werewolf, but I know there must be something abnourmal about her or Remus would not have told her his secret to make her feel better. “Chaos, panic, and disorder – my work here is done.” I have a shirt with a black cat on it that says that. 10! 10! 10! 10! 10! 10! 10! 10! 10! 10!
Author's Response: Ooh, I'm glad someone else thought that Remus line was funny. I luved that line when I wrote it. A shirt with a black cat? It should be a black dog! Haha. Thanks for the long review!!!!
That was absolutely hysterical!!!! I must put this fic in my favourites list now! I especially enjoyed "Mr. Black, for the last time, there are no evil clowns living under your bed! Now stop waking me up!" and "Well, I would have been mortally offended if you guys had actually let me get a good night sleep to recover," You recieve a perfect 10!!
10! This is my fav. chapter so far. You are exceptional at keeping everyone in character. Keep it up!
Twas very good, like all of your other work!!!
That was incredibly random; I was laughing hysterically!!! I liked this one much better than the one about Harry, Ron, and Hermione, especially the part about the wheelbarrows. You are a grand comedian. Please update soon!
Oooooh that was awesome!!! Everyone was in canon! perfect 10 for you
You wrote James' perspective perfectly: confident, intelligent, and amusing. My fave line was "To James, it looked like Remus was double chocolate cake, and Sirius was very, very hungry…"
Ooh this was very good and origanal. Are you ever going to update because it says your last post was Nov. 2004? Anyway, if you ever do update you may want to consider putting in some of Remus' and\or Sirius' point of view. Good job!!!
This was such a cute fic! You captured Remmy and Siri's characters perfectly! I wish I could rate you a twenty!!!
I understand how Sirius feels; I'd want to be the fork too! My fave part was “Ladies, Gentlemen…and Sirius.” Very nice job!
