**********************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 loved this story before and still do. I can hardly wait for Chapter Nine!
Author's Response: I\'m so happy! Chapter nine will be in queue soon. I hope you like it; it\'s the first new one since November! Yay! Anyway, thanks so much and see you soon! ~Moony
I loved this chapter, although I'm surprised that it is the longest one so far, as it flowed so easily!
I can't imagine Harry getting the Dark Mark on his arm... that kind of freaked me out! There will be a way to stop this madness.... right??
Anyway, great job, as always. Can't wait for Chapter Eleven!
Author's Response: I was just as surprised, actually writing it was so easy and then I typed it and saw the length. That was a \'wow\' moment for that day. ; ) I can imagine freaking out. If I didn\'t know what was going to happen later. XD A way to stop the madness? Hmm... Why, I don\'t know! I\'m sure if you comb through my profile and get an idea of what kind of endings I like, you will see your answer.^^ I\'m so happy to know that you liked it, LoOnY! Thanks a bunch and I hope to put chapter eleven up when I get a chance. ~Moony
I'm so glad this story is back! I really freaked out when I couldn't find it anywhere. Can't wait for more updates!
Author's Response: yay! Welcome back! I freaked out too; I totally stopped breathing for a minute. I hope to have the rest up soon. Thanks so much for sticking with me here, LoOnY_for_Harry! It means so much. ~Moony : )
Oh...my....gosh! Moony, sometimes you are so evil about these cliffies... grrr... Anyhow, great chapter! I was on edge the whole time... I can't believe Harry actually performed the Unforgiveable Curses! He didn't really kill Wormtail.. did he? I just can't imagine him doing that (well, I can, with pleasure, but not under Voldemort's orders!)! As many times as I gasped in this chapter, I must admit I smiled wryly when Harry used hatred of old Voldy (as opposed to the good people) to perform the Killing Curse... could he be regaining his memory, perhaps? Can't wait for chapter thirteen! Absolutely awesome job, as always!
Author's Response: You know, I have a lot of people saying that he is getting his memory back. Well, the question is will it just pop into his head one day or will he get it back memory by memory? Aye there\'s the rub ; ) Yeah I had a hard time writing him doing all of that under Voldykins\' orders, so I know how bad it must have been to read. I am glad you liked it though and am working on thirteen as I type!!! Thanks a bunch for another great review and see you later, LoOnY!!! ~Miss Moony^^
Great chapter! I just now realized I was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time! *mentally sends message to Moony* Please let Snape do something to help Harry, please!
I'm so excited that the chapter I've been waiting for since the first time the story was out has been released. Keep them coming, I can't wait for chapter ten!
Author's Response: Thanks! I was actually on the edge of my seat when I was writing it, if you would believe that! Tip for you: NEVER sit on the edge of your bed and write at the same time. Moony+edge=falls off and hurts self. ; ) Not a pretty sight. *sends mental message to LoOnY* I can\'t tell you... *wink* I am really happy that you liked this chapter, seeing as you were with this since the beginning. I super hope you like 10 just as much. Thanks a bunch and I\'ll update soon, hun! ~Moony
Moony, you've done it again! Great chapter, as always, with an underlying sense of suspense and foreboding. Can't they do anything before Harry becomes knee deep in Dark Magic? I have to tell you that I was devasted at your descriptions of how Harry, son of James and Lily Potter, had now joined his sworn enemy and would have to perform Dark Magic, etc. You did a good job with that! I can't wait to see what happens next! Wicked sweet job!
Author's Response: LoOnY! Thank you so much! ^_^ I had thought of them doing something in this chapter, but decided against it at the last minute. I didn\'t want the story to end here just yet. There are about 4 or 5 chapters left, so you will see the end of this story soon. Oh, but it is not the end. I should tell you now that *SPOILER!* I am planning to make this a trilogy!^^ So there will definitely be more to this. And I am glad you noticed that part. It was supposed to have that affect on you as the future for Harry is not known (for you, haha!). Thank you so much again and I hope to put up the next chapter and get over my writer\'s block on thirteen ( >.< ) very soon! ~Moony
An awesome story from Hermione's viewpoint. You really have a way with dialogue!
Author's Response: I really want there to be a favorite reviewers section so I could put you in mine! Thank you.
That. Was. Beautiful. It completely summed up my thoughts for the end of the series-- which I'm still in partial denial about-- and I admit, I had more than a few tears in my eyes. For your "first attempt at poetry", it was pretty darned good. I would tell you how you could improve, but I honestly can't find a single way. Swell job!
Author's Response: Awww. You see, this is why you get to be on that lovely list. Thank you! And no, it isn\'t the last book. It\'s not. The whole thing is just an elaborate joke.
Good job! You stuck well to Carroll's writing style and created an entertaining parody.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m glad you liked it, the original is great and I\'m glad I could follow it well. Thanks for reading and leaving such a nice review! ~Gina :)
Great fic from Ginny's POV. I hope this never happens (I know, I know, you warned me!), but your writing, as always, was awesome.
If you're not a Harry/Ginny shipper (as I am- again, I understand that you warned me :D ), then who do you think Harry loves/will love? I'm curious to know.
Great job again. Your descriptions are really amazing. Can't wait for your next story!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yeah, I did warn you- but not to horrible, eh? To answer your question, I’ve shipped Harry/Luna since OotP, but I will be happy for Harry and Ginny when they get back together. IF. Actually, your penname reminds me of that ship. Loony Luna for Harry, LoOnY_for_Harry? Um. I’m sure you’re offended :D Thanks again! My next real story is a Ron/Lav chapter fic (I ship Heron at heart, though), but I have a poem called “Spots” in queue right now. It’s about Eloise Midgen and her- well, it’s about pimples! Yet I think it’s good…
That was really funny, though I feel for for Eloise.... mildly. The way you portrayed her thoughts was really accurate.... did you read her mind? ;)
Oh, by the way, I looked at some of your responses to my other reviews and I have responses to your responses:
Oh, shucks! I' m flattered to be one of your favorite reviewers! *grins because life finally has meaning*
My penname: I was actually referring to my obsessiveness for anything related to the Potterverse, but I am also a mild H/L shipper. Jo really had me going in OotP, and I'd be happy with either H/G or H/L.
Sorry for slightly spammy review. Nice work!
Author's Response: *sigh* I still don\'t see the humour, but this has little to do with my readers and more to do with my poetic skills, or lack thereof, I\'m sure. No, I did not read Eloise\'s mind. I did read some teen magzines, though! You are indeed one of, if not my absoulute, favorite reviewer. Because you have left lovely reviews of everything I\'ve ever posted here. MAJOR brownie points, that gets you. I wish I could say the same about H/G and H/L, but at the moment I\'m torn between denial and hitting Jo with a frying pan, so... Thanks for the slightly spammy review!
Hi Gina! The rhythm was perfect! The poem itself was tragic, though at least 'ol Lockhart got what he deserved. Wonderful job!
Author's Response: HI there! Thanks for reading this poem. I\'m so glad the rhythm worked for you. It is a bit tragic, on many levels, isn\'t it? Thanks for leaving such a great review!! ~Gina :)
Very good story! Though I'm a steadfast R/H shipper, this was an excellent tale of what happened when Krum asked Hermione to the Yule Ball and the feelings that ensued. The flow of this story was great! The only thing was, I was.... annoyed.... that it was so short (the "annoyed" thing was really funny by the way! :D )! Good work!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! *blushes* What a lovely review! ....Yes, it is very short- the first time I submitted it, it got rejected for being too short, so this is actually the \"long\" version! Thanks so much again! :-D ~megan~
An interesting poem! It doesn't rhyme, but who says poems have to? The poem portrays the feelings of Ginny, Hermione, and Ron about Harry briefly. The only thing is how limited the events you wrote about are, but if you included everything, the poem would be a mile long! Good job!
Author's Response: awww, gee. Thank you! I\'ve never been good at rhyming poems, actually. *blushes* Thanks again!
Good story, very good. It was short, but it ended on a high note. (The last line was pretty funny!)
There weren't many details, but it was a good story without them. An interesting take on their first kiss!
And, sorry, I don't know if the Ginny Healer thing is canon. I always imagined her as an auror or something daring like that, but that's just me!
Author's Response: Thanks! It\'s okay, you aren\'t the only one.
Very creative idea! The main character is very likeable, and I love how Harry's son isn't hateful toward Meera. Though I find it hard to believe that Voldemort woul ever want to get married, I think that the way you explained the whole thing is great. Awesome job!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! It\'s always nice to know that my wacko ideas for stories aren\'t too...well...wacko, hahaha.
But love prevails, especially love as strong as Ron and Hermione's. Love unconditional and trusting, no matter the circumstances, makes everything just perfect.
A pretty good story! Short and sweet, definetely. The only thing that could have improved this story is a little more detail, as it was sort of fuzzy at times. But all in all, I liked it a lot!
Author's Response: thank you, loony! :) as for the details, hmmm, can you tell me which parts have been fuzzy to you? i did my best to explain everything through dialogue, because dense descriptions and \'tellings\' instead of \'showings\' in one-shots make me yawn.
thanks you for your kind words!
Fenn, this story is awesome! I love it more and more every chapter! I really love fics that let you get in the minds of characters that you thought were just pure evil, so that you can better understand them. Your Fenrir is such a not-typical Slytherin that you can't help but be attracted to his conscience, his wanting to be a better person. Also, I think it's a great idea to show him as being smart, good-looking, and a bit arrogant... do I detect echoes of Sirius?....it makes him more likeable since I can relate him to someone like Sirius. Great foreshadowing of Layona, not to mention bringing two very important future characters into it! Great job! *huggles*
Author's Response: Hey Loony! =] I\'m so glad you like it! *is terribly flattered* Yep, someone pointed out that my Fenrir is a bit like Sirius... It wasn\'t intentional, but I purposely made him likable and seemingly perfect to show contrast between what he was and what he will become (also, to show that horrible things can happen to the best of people).
*squishes* Thanks so much for your great review! ~Fennnnnnn
Your use of detail was excellent and I think this will turn out to be an awesome fic!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review--for all of them! I\'m so glad that you like the story--it\'s so encouraging, and I\'ll definitely get out the next chappie ASAP! ~Fenn
A great chapter. I love the way that Fenrir actually has a conscience, that he is unhappy with the way his fellow Slytherins behave. I knew that it had to happen eventually, but it was a little regretful that Fenn decided to "behave like the Slytherin he was"
Just a small note, though someone probably already told you: McGonagall only has one N and two L's. Other than that, I can't think of anything you can improve on. Again, great chapter!
Author's Response: *tackles* Hey there!
Thanks so much for your review--I\'m glad you like Fenn, he\'s such a fun character to write. The end was a little regretful, yes... =( Poor Fenn!
Thanks for the tip-off--I wend back and fixed the spelling before anyone finds out! *shifty eyes* Good, I think I\'m safe.
Thanks again for the sweet review! ~Fenn
