heya im emma
im 16 and i absolutly adore harry potter and anything related.
i have always loved writing ever since i was tiny and the amount of rubbish stories i have written over the years is incredible.
so i decided, now that i am all grown up and (hopefully) know how to write well i have decided to put my love of harry potter and my love of writing together.
i am hoping that making my own will help pass the time until the seven book comes out.
which, now that i think about it, i am kind of hoping it never does, because it is going to be the last one and that is just going to kill me
i also write poetry you can read them at poetrypoem.com/monkey5 (read shrink or no other way, if you read any)
I LOVE YOU JULIET
made by me!! how great am I?!?!?!
i think this is my favourite chapter so far. I love Lily's character. She is very powerful for a thirteen year old but she still gives up when everything gets too tough, which makes her character believable. (i dont think thats spelt right)
im really excited for the next chapter.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you think Lily\'s character is believable, (and spelled it right too!) as that\'s something I strive for in the story.
i love this story so much
i loved the bit about the apprehending teeth it was hilariously adorable
and harrys comment at the end was just such great comeback
oh i love this story
cant wait for the next chapter

Author's Response: I thought it was funny myself, probably why I wrote it! Thanks for the review.
i love this story so much
i cant wait to find out the rest
Author's Response: Hopefully I\'ll have an update ready when the queue opens up again.
ooooooooooooooooh im so excited. That was a really good chapter. The memory was so sad and mean. I felt so bad for Ginny.
love it muchly
emma x x x
Author's Response: Ginny is certainly worthy of pity after that memory, but parents leaving does terrible things to little kids. Thanks for the review.
I feel rather stupid really because I've been waiting for the update... Typical that it was put up right when i had like twelve exams to do in like three days, or something ridiculous like that. On a more lucky note for you (perhaps) I have finished all my exams just this morning (well, yesturday morning now) so i can spend like forever writing this review and ramble on about everything, which is always fun. So I shall begin. (the caps lock and return buttons on my key board are all broken and its really annoying (just thought you needed to know)).
I loved the begining where she was talking about her shoes being too tight for one of her feet. It's just the obvious thing to be worried about when your mum is about to marry this person (oh my god there's a moth attacking me) who you hate and is all mean and probably trying to kill her or something awful. Lily is probably my favourite character from anything I've ever read, (except maybe that guy in time travellers wife, i liked him too). She is just so typically teenagerish but also has had to grow up alot and is all sneaky and clever and just perfect. There was a moment when i thought you had killed her because I thought you were like showing how her whole life flashed before her eyes and she was seeing everything that had happened. That turtle bit was so sad. I really felt for her at that point with Tulip going to turtle heaven. I clocked on when Malfoy actually said Avada Kedavra because he all suddenly seemd to fit.
I liked what Hermione was saying at his funeral about ' My mother used to always say that the measure of a person was not whether they fell, but whether they stood back up.' It's just a really nice thing... and on the grave stone was good too about the best thing he ever did was kill himself. I really do pity Malfoy because he did have so little control over his life but at the same time you don't want to because then you feel you can't hate him AND feel sorry for him, you know?
Dick, on the other hand, he was just a twat fish prick. He would have made a good death eater. Not that a death eater would ever really be a good thing to be, but he would have taken on his responsibilties well, i personally feel.
My favourite part of the whole story was the bit about apprehending teeth. It's hard to find things funny when everything is all traumatic but that was just so light hearted and happy I loved it so much. Actually, although the stroy was all dark, except the end when it got all happy ever after like, which was definately the right way to end it, by the way, because a unhappy ending would have gotten you more death threats than having a happy one and no sequel, i actually found myself laughing quite a lot. Unless i was about to cry because it was all so terrible. Any story that can put in a joke about 'sirius' and 'serious' when people are all like dying or whatever, must be good, right?? or maybe i'm just really easily amused.
The story was sooooooo great. All your chapter titles were exciting, which most peoples aren't and that just makes it fun. The plot was all exciting and scary, and exciting. Oh i just loved it. You know what else is good, you are a pretty darn good writer, I must say.
Oh it was so exciting. loved it loved it loved it. and now I must apologise for the novel length review, because it is quite ridiculoiusly long, i really can't help but ramble, especially when i have exciting words like exciting to fit in as many times as i possible can. I think I fitted in at least six 'excitings' so thats quite an achievement.
now i really will stop writing.
emma x x x x
Author's Response: Haha, that is a long review -- good thing I love long reviews! Thanks so much, I\'m glad you liked the story, and the happy ending. You\'re right, I would have gotten ten times more death threats if I hadn\'t had a happy ending! And of course I had to throw in a serious/sirius joke in there, I just couldn\'t help myself ;) I also like the apprehending teeth part, it\'s so sweet it makes me smile! I\'m glad you appreciated the chapter titles as well. It\'s so exciting to get a nice, long review like this (see, I can do it too!), thanks again!
OH MY GOD
thats so sad
but really good all the same
x x x
OH MY GOD
this is so mean
its so sad
Author's Response: Hopefully I\'ll get writing on the next chapter soon!
best chapter, EVER. I loved the reference to the apprehending teeth again, its got to be one of the best parts of this story. can't believe its ending though, I'm very very exciting to see how it ends, and equally excited about this sequal you mentioned... If it doesnt come i will have to hunt you down.
Love it love it love it.
emma x x x
Author's Response: Thanks! It does seem weird that it\'s ending, doesn\'t it? But for my own survival, I\'ll be sure to have the sequel out before too long after this last chapter!
the stag is harry right??
x x x
Author's Response: What do you think?
i love these
its the sort of things that actually could happen and would follow a very long silence and you feeling like a right twat
except maybe the headless hat thing... i dont think i know anyone where that has happened to them
Author's Response: LOL! thanks, emma! the headless hat thing is a crazy conjecture that fits Fred somehow. :)
that was a slightly eventful chapter.
first you try to kill of Ginny and now your about to kill off them all. im so excited!
great chapter, it was so long! update soon.
emma x x x
Author's Response: Thank you! As I told someone before: I can\'t kill Ginny; she has to stick around to watch Harry die. Of course, I\'m not telling if I\'m serious about that or not. hehe!
harry isnt going to be in the same dorm as ron?? thats just mean and evil.
apart from that, i love it
Author's Response: Actually, just to make things a little easier, he will be. But you don\'t learn that until the next chapter. ;-)
im confused about the dorm thing... not that it actually matters, and i probably just read it wrong or interpretted it wrong, i can be pretty stupid at times... im looking forward to seeing snape crack
Author's Response: Basically, Harry\'s being put in the seventh year boys\' dorm to make his transition as easy as possible (since he already knows Ron, and the other boys in the dorm are used to rooming with famous Harry Potter). Sorry if that was confusing. I\'m glad you\'re looking forward to interaction with Snape, though.
oooh. I am terrified for Ginny. This cant be good. Im traying to remember if i should know what it says... i only read it yesturday but ive already forgotten... im probably just stupid. oh well. Great chapter.
Emma x x x
Author's Response: Yeah, Ginny\'s in a bit of hot water at the moment. The DP article is at the end of the Valentine\'s Day chapter, if you want to go back and read it.
that i wasnt expecting...
i thought ginny and harry were about to get together, and then i was annoyed that they didnt and thought that them almost getting together was the big thing which happened after the halloween feast. But then it was all good because it is actually the trial, so i no longer need to hate you... im rambling. great story.
emma x x x
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, the trial is definitely the big thing going on right now. Ginny still isn\'t ready to fully trust Harry (or anyone else), but she\'s getting there. You\'ll hate me for a couple of chapters, but I think you\'ll get over it. ;-)
that was so mean. This was such a good chapter. All the characters were perfect. I loved Dumbledores evidence, it was the same style as what he gave in Harry's trial. you can't keep harry's memory from him, thats just so mean
Author's Response: You\'re absolutely right: it was definitely mean. But it was also exactly the sort of thing Umbridge would do, don\'t you think? I\'m glad you thought the trial was written well. It gave me an evil sort of pleasure to write this chapter. ;-)
OH, i've just thought. Now it seems impossible for Harry to get his memory back will Ginny finally go out with him?? that would be some sort of comfort for Harry at least.
Author's Response: Interesting idea. You\'ll have to read and see.
i knew ginny couldnt be angry at harry and would think that she now neednt worry about him forgetting about her if he got his memory back. i love this so much, probably too much. im so tired but i refuse to sleep; ive got to do all my coursework tomorrow so wont have time to read.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you\'re enjoying it so much. Yeah, Ginny\'s neither stupid or reactionary, she just needed a little time to sort out how she felt. :-)
Urquhart reminds me of cumquat (i dont know if thats how you spell it)...just thought it was something important you needed to know
Author's Response: That\'s funny! I didn\'t make the name up, though -- it\'s really in the books!
thats like the best present ever!!
But you havnt told us his thoughts on Ginny. Im excited to see how the others react and if Harry changes.
Author's Response: Thanks! I thought it was a good present too (hence the name of the chapter). Harry\'s reaction to Ginny will come in the next chapter.
