**********************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

That was so sweet! I loved it, but I always love your stories. As obvious as this may sound, your rhyming was ingenious. The happy ending was very fitting, too. Great job and Happy Valentine's Day!
Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks so much for stopping to read this fluffy little piece, I\'m really glad you liked it. I had a lot of fun with it, especially with the six line stanzas. I\'m glad you liked the ending, I thought it would be nice to show things turned out well in the end. Who do you think it was about?? Thanks again for reading this and for the lovely review - Happy Valentine\'s Day to you as well! ~Gina :)
Hi Fenn! *waves madly*
I love it! It's a great start, with really good descriptioins and much emotion (I felt inexplicable tears well in my eyes at the mother's photo bit). I really like the way you described the Lovegoods' house... I always imagined strange collections of things all over it!
This sounds like a very original idea! It has to be the most creative ship I've heard of ! ;)
Author's Response: Hello there! *waves back madly*
I\'m so glad you like my story--I\'m sorry I almost made you cry, though! =) I rather enjoyed making up their house, too... I really had a strong image in my mind\'s eye, and I hope I conveyed it to the readers. XD
Thank you very much for your lovely review! I\'m a big fan of rarepairs and non-human pairing, and I\'m glad you think it\'s creative!
Thanks again! ~Fenn
This chapter was quite funny-- I was giggling all the while! I love your explaination of how Luna got those lovely radish earrings!
Luna is one of my very favorite characters and, I must say, you captured her essence perfectly!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review!
I\'m very glad I could bring a smile to your face--because no Luna story is complete without a mention of her favorite piece of jewellry! I really like Luna too--she\'s so hilarious--and I\'m so very happy that you think I\'ve portrayed her well!
Thank you so much! *huggles* ~Fenn =D
That was really, really good! Admittedly, I didn't enjoy the part about Harry dying, as I don't think I could stand that! :D The story, though, was excellent. It was simply, yet well, written. I was in tears by the end! :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Ironically, I\'m not much for stories with Harry\'s death either but the idea just came to mind at some point around August 2006 and I knew I had to get it down.
Awesome job! Your use of details and descriptions of everything are amazing! I wouldn't be surprised if something much like this happened in DH, but we'll find out soon enough... almost too soon! Congratulations on making it into The Tens! What does it mean to be a "Most Prolific Author"? Again, awesome fic!
Author's Response: Hi there! Yay, another review for this story! Thanks so much for reading this piece, I really appreciate the great review. I can\'t decide whether DH will start out with Harry or with a chapter like this; you are right, we will know soon enough. Thanks for the congrats on making The Tens. I think it means that I write far to much and should probably find a new hobby. ;) Thanks again for all the great reviews!! ~Gina :)
This was really funny and your wordplay was excellent. Short and sweet!
Author's Response: Ooh, double review! ^pokes other review^
This was really funny and your wordplay was excellent. Short and sweet!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review! I really appreciate it--this poem just popped into my head and I couldn\'t not submit it!
Excellent job! All of the creatures that Nicholas encountered were very imaginative, and I loved how the obstacles Flamel faced paralleled those the trio faced. I was gasping all the while as Flamel watched the vision in the pool, so, needless to say, that was well done. Super-duper! :D
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading this story!! I am so glad you enjoyed it, thank you for the wonderful review. I\'m also glad you noticed the parallels to the what the trio was going through at the time, it too me a while to work it all out. I\'m glad the vision worked as well, since it motivated Flamel to destroy the stone. Thanks again for reading this story and for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)
A darkly beautiful poem. Your rhythm was really good and the details were wonderful. Great job, keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Have a nice day!
That was really, really sweet! I loved the underlying themes of the R/Hr ship, and the way you described Lavender.... she was never really perfectly imagined in my mind, but she is now! Maybe you didn't mean for this story to be funny, but I was giggling the whole time at your subtle wit. Great job, as always! Can't wait for more from you!
Author's Response: Subtle wit! Why don\'t English teachers say things like that? You are the really, really, sweet one. Glad I could help you picture Lavender, and that you liked the story! More coming... soon... provided the \"we\'re closing the site\" thing really was a joke. Happy April Fool\'s Day!
All I can say is... awww. That was quite beautiful, in a tragic sort of way, if you know what I mean! The rhythm you use is right on target and all you need is conveyed in a simplistic way. Good job, as always.
May I ask which character you had in mind when you wrote this?
Author's Response: Thank you very much. =) You\'re certainly making my day all over the place with your sweet reviews--thank you, thank you, thank you!
I had Fenrir Greyback in mind, but I decided to make it more generic so it can apply to any werewolf. =)
Thanks again!! ~Fenn
That was really good! It was quite funny too, I was giggling the whole time. I don't know if I can say this without sounding stupid, but I'll say it anyway... your rhyming was awesome!
Yay spew.... uh... ess-pee-ee-dub'yoo!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for your review! I\'m really glad that you liked it, and was able to bring a giggle to your face. =)
Ess-pee-ee-dub\'yoo Power! ~Fenn XD
That was awesome! Really funny... I loved Ron's reactions to everything. Very original idea, I love it! :D
Author's Response: Thanks! ~Lindsey :)
Wow. That was really, really tragic (I know, you warned of that!). The rhythm and rhyme of the poem was perfect. Good work! :)
Author's Response: Thanks!!!!
B-e-a uti-ful! Excellent use of personification and wonderful details. Nice job!
That was beautiful! I would say that more details would be needed, but what you included fit in very well with the scheme of the poem. It was one of those really great poems that will stay in your memory because you recall how short and sweet it was. Nice job!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I\'m glad you liked it. ^_^
A modern-day twist to this classic wish leaves Peeves the Poltergeist with much more than he bargained for. Thrown suddenly into life as an eleven-year-old boy, the former ghost must live in Hogwarts as a first-year student. From some good old-fashioned Filch baiting to a run-in with the giant squid, our hero has a whole host of challenges awaiting him--and the only person he can rely on for help is a very ill-tempered Blue Fairy...
Written by FenrirG of Ravenclaw for the "What You Wish For" prompt of the Spring Challenge.
Howdy there, Fenn! (for reasons unknown, I'm feeling very cowgirl-ish today :D ) Quite good first chapter and the story as a whole is looking really promising. The only thing is, try to arrange your sentences a bit differently. For example, instead of:
"His hands were balled into fists, and he looked livid."
You could write:
"Hands balled into fists, he looked livid"
Inverting your sentences makes them more interesting and make the story flow a little easier. I know that you did this in some parts, but don't be afraid to do it more often! The dialogue was a little awkward at parts, too, look out for that! :)
Your detail is great and I LOVE this storyline-- it has hilarious possibilities! Can't wait for Chapter 2 (there is a chapter two, right?)! Nice work!
Author's Response: Hey Loony!
Thanks so much for your review, and your wonderful suggestions! I\'ll definitely keep them in mind! :) I really appreciate it! *huggles*
I\'m glad you like the storyline.. I have a whole bunch of ideas planned out, and I\'m afraid I won\'t be able to incorporate them all before the challenge ends.. But I\'m definitely continuing this story even after the challenge! =)
Yep, there\'s a Chapter Two--it\'s actually with the beta right now! Thanks so much for your review! *huggles back*
Cue an "Awwww..." That was truly sweet and heartfelt... I could feel the emotions that both of the characters felt. Very well-written and beautiful. The only thing I would change is the fact that Hermione died... I don't even want to imagine, but I guess we all have to go someday....
Wonderful job! :)
Author's Response: *giggles* Aw, thanks so much for your wonderful review! It made me happy! ~Lindsey :)
Written by LuthAn of Gryffindor for the Character Sonnet Challenge.
That was quite good! Excellent job with details and descriptions. The rhythm was great, too, though it was an unusual style (which is a good thing!). A wonderful poem about the feelings of our favorite werewolf!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! He\'s such a lovable werewolf, isn\'t he? :) I had a lot of fun writing it. I\'m so glad you liked it, and thanks again for the review!
Sweet but tragic. A very accurate tale of the loss of dear Sirius (*sniff*) and the way he was expected to act when he was born. Awesome rhythm (you sure do have a gift for that!). The only problem was that it was so short.... but at the same time, you told the story through this brief poem! Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for a great first review! I appreciate the compliments. Sorry its short, such is the length of a sonnet. I did write two sonnets that I paired together if you want something a bit longer, lol. It\'s titled \"Two Sonnets\" Thanks so much for reaading this, and for leaving such nice reviews of my stories, I really appreciate it!! ~Gina :)
