**********************Harry Potter Related Stuff***********************
Why I Like Harry Potter: Everyone who knows me at all knows I'm obsessed with Harry Potter and as such, this is the question I get asked the most and the hardest one to answer. I guess I love the books because they're good stories, but it's more than that. They take me from the real world, they ensure that I always have a friend, someone to relate to. They created this wonderful fandom where I've met counless wonderful people. What's not to like about Harry Potter?
My Boggart: Like Mrs. Weasley in OotP, my family being hurt. It would also probably be me squeezed into a tight elevator for eternity.
My Favorite Characters: (in no specific order) Harry, Ron, Hermione (had to get the obvious out of the way), Hagrid, Luna, Sirius, Remus, James, Lily, Dumbledore, Tonks, Neville, and the Weasleys.
My Favorite Ships: Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny, James/Lily, Neville/Luna or Neville/Lavender, Umbridge/Voldemort (hey, they're both pure evil! Muhahaha!)
How Long I've Been Obsessed and How I Express That Obsession (try saying that five times fast!) : I have been obsessed for five years. Life as I now know it started when I read SS after my Dad ordered all the books and begged me endlessly to read them (how he regrets it now....) and then I went on a field trip to see the movie with my class... it was love at first... word? line?
I express my obsession by listening to MuggleCast every week, visting MuggleNet at least twice a day, being a PiPa member, and of course coming here and to the Forums. I also made my basketball team sing on one of the character's birthdays, but after that I could never convince them to do it again.... spoil sports!
*************A Few Facts Regarding Me******************
My Hero: Jo Rowling. She is an inspiration to all of those who have ever been told, have ever thought, that they can't do this. She proved the whole world wrong by coming up with the best book series ever and becoming the first author worth a billion. Take that, those who make fun of me for calling her "Jo", "like she's my personal friend". Who doesn't, though?
Favorite Books: (Besides the Harry Potter series, the best books forever and ever. Amen) The Goose Girl, Enna Burning, River Secrets, Princess Academy, all by Shannon Hale; The Maximum Ride Series, by James Patterson; The Lionboy Trilogy, by Zizou Corder; Percy Jackson and the Olympiads Series, by Percy Jackson; The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis; Pride and Predjudice by Jane Austen; The Blue Sword, Beauty, both by Robin McKinley; Alas, Babylon, by Pat Frank

I love it! Very good interpretation of the prophesy and what will happen with the veil. Although it was a one-shot, it was nearly perfect.
Author's Response: Hello again! Thank you so much for the great review! I wrote this story for a challenge based on the Department of Mysteries. I think the veil is fascinating and will very likely make some sort of appearance in the final book and wanted to explore what that might be. I\'m so glad you liked it - thank you for leaving such a nice review!! ~Gina :)
It's wonderful! The air of mystery and suspense is very real. I can't wait to find out who's "watching him". Keep up the awesome work!
A great chapter! I am filled with so much suspense! Have Hermione and Colin been chosen to carry out the same task? I guess that I will find out soon. Can't wait for the next chapter!
Wow.... amazingly emotional!
Amazing! More, please!!!
We all knew Harry would unfortunately have to kill sometime... but I couldn't surpress a small cheer when Malfoy was finished. I can't wait to see what happens with Ginny! PLEASE don't let her forget him!
Amazing story, no matter what happens. I'm addicted!
AAHH! Cliffhanger! I can't stand it! Don't make Ginny kill Harry! Her love for him will cancel out the curse, right?
*Mutters to self: Think happy thoughts. Think happy thougts* I'm so glad that Hermione is mortal again and that she and Ron are reunited. It's also so fairy tale-ish that Harry and Ginny and together, so I guess I knew it wouldn't last.
AWESOME job, you really know how to keep me hanging on. I will be so sad when this story ends.... but, for now, keep up the great work and update when you can. Thanks for creating such an addicting fic! ;)
Wow! Another awesome chapter! I love the idea that Harry and Ginny's love heals.
Really, really good. Excellent. That's all I can say, because I have to go read the next chapter! :)
My heart is beating painfully.... it's one of your famous cliffies!
It wasn't a good chapter for former Hogwarts professors, was it? Then again, I was really glad that Hagrid survived his ordeal with the vampires.
Can't wait to see what happens with everyone. I really like your omens.... they're so ominous! :D
This chapter was great! Although we didn't get to see Ginny or Ron for long, it was nice hearing about all of the main characters in one chapter. I liked the explaination of the differences between Hermione's love for Harry and Ron, too. Keep up the good work!
NO! Harry can't be dead!!! Voldemort can, but not Harry!
I can't wait to find out what happens, but I don't want this story to end!
Anyway, great chapter, it was only a tiny bit rushed, but other than that, it was wonderful, as always!
Oh my gosh! I can't tell you how many times I uttered that phrase while reading this! I was tearing up over Ginny, one of my favorite characters, but then.... all I can say is "THANK YOU!"
I also thought it was really excellent that Ron killed the person responsible for his sister's... death? ..... And, as much as I hate Harry and Ron killing, I'm glad that Harry finally killed Draco, the toerag!
This chapter was beautiful! I loved all of the reasons why he had to return, his feelings for his deceased loved ones, and the fact that Flamel ruled the realm beyond the Veil. The ending was one that could make you smile if you were in the worst of moods, and could bring a happy tear to your eye at the fact that Harry's burden had been lifted.
The bad part about the ending was the fact that... it ended! I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this story.... contrary to what you said, it wasn't a "nice" ride. It was a wonderful one.
Keep up the awesome writing! Thanks for this great imagining of Harry's final thunder clap in the "Storm of Darkness"!
Author's Response: thanks very much! hope you check out my new story (if it gets accepted) called \"Mortality\".
Very good first chapter. It's a really unique idea, one that I've never thought of before.... it's so original! Good work!
Author's Response: Thanks for the great praise! It really made me feel good. Thanks for reviewing!
Another good chapter! I love the fact that Sirius is alive... how I miss him! I also laughed when I read that Ms. Jorkins was very confused... way to incorporate that! Nice job, again!
Author's Response: I know.. I wish Sirius was alive... Ah, well. THanks for the second lovely review!
I must say that this chapter made me crack up harder than any of the other chapters, which I would've previously thought impossible. Do you kay-doubleyew that you are completely hilarious? Thanks to you, I must buy a new pair of jeans.
I know that this story was completed by the time I started reading it, but I can't imagine it being over. Do you see a The Dark Lord's Blog: Part Two in Voldy's crystal ball?
I loved your reference to the Princess Bride (
Author's Response: Oh, thanks so much! This was the most fun to write (except for Chapter Six, and you\'ll see why) because of the very, er, creative letters I got! Sorry about your pants... There will, in fact, be a sequel coming sometime this month! Keep your eyes peeled!
I can't believe this wonderful story is almost at its demise! Can't wait to read your other works-- I'm sure that they, too, are wicked sweet. On a completely related, but unrelated note (if that made sense, I must be crazier than I thought), I love this portrayal of Bellatrix. It's so LOL!!1!1111!!uno!1
Author's Response: Oh my gosh, I never thought about sticking foreign language version of the number \'one\' in my Bellatrix posts! Speaking of Bellatrix, I can\'t wait for you to read Chapter Six. I think you\'ll like it. ^_^
That was awesome! Bellatrix.... never saw that coming! That was a great ending.... OR WAS IT? Yeah, it was. ;) Will there be a Dark Lord's Blog:Part II?
Author's Response: Hehe... I laughed at your \"OR WAS IT?\" I knew you\'d be surprised by the Bellatrix twist!
Yay! I just saw your reply for my other review! There will be a sequal! Life is worth living! ;)
Author's Response: Yay! I\'m so glad that you enjoy it!
