Well, I'm not among those types who'll write a lazy 'i-can't-write-about-me's-and-it's-for-you-guyz-and-gals-to-describe-me' sorta thing because the only two people who know you perfectly are God and yourself..and no one else.
As you might have guessed, I am not one of your everyday types, as stepping into this link you might have realised you are tresspassing the portents of a classified upper mortal..so what are still looking at your screen for? BOW LOW! (lol!)
I'm your unusual kind of guy with your average kind of faults. I'm an introvert, lazy, marginally creative and someone who thinks a lot before jumping to conclusions...in fact too much for his own good.
I worship J K Rowling, revere Severus Snape and enjoy the antics of Squidward Tentacles. I have little patience with smokers, criminals and people with no respect for women or animals. Many of my friends (or maybe none of them) will tell you that I'm a weird piece of work because nothing interests me more than doing something alone or just sitting doing nothing. But I also have a genial nature and the aura of making people around me feel comfortable. Also I'm an IITian, an avid TV watcher and a staunch believer of God.

Summary: Love comes in all shapes and sizes... doesn’t it?
Luna Lovegood has always believed in things that others don’t. And we’re not just talking about Crumple-horned Snorkacks and the Rotfang Conspiracy--Luna believes in things like House Elf equality and love on first sight.
As soon as he meets her, Barmy the house elf knows that she is different. She sees him as a fellow, an equal. But will she ever see him as more?
In this romantic comedy (featuring Luna Lovegood and a very original character, readers will learn a whole host of answers they've all been dying to find out. Just how weird is Luna Lovegood? Does the Crumple-horned Snorkack really exist? And, most importantly, what is with with those raddish earrings?
Chapter 2, Two Radishes and a Pear, is up!
What an intriguiging beginning! I liked your characterization of Luna...I agree with Schmerg, she is a very difficult character to write. You could have made a great excuse by making Luna OOC and save yourself by saying it was a humour fic but I'm glad you took up the challenge. The house-elf Barmy was good too - I imagine him like a slightly fatter version of Dobby.
I think there is a point which I'd like to um..point. I don't know if I'm qualified enough to say this but - Luna says that she really missed her mom and the way it was written it seemed to contradict Luna's real feelings about afterlife and that "loved ones never leave you" thing mentioned at the end of OotP.
But because this is your first shot at ficking AND because Luna is a difficult character to write, YOU ARE EXCUSED!
Keep up the good work! Authors like you reinstill in me the feeling that fickers DO take humour fics seriously like M_O_M and Schmerg and loup_garou etc...I'm favouriting this one!
Author's Response: *glows*
Thank you soo much for your fantastical review, it really makes my day! I wake up and--boom, a great start! *huggles*
Hmmm, it\'s a good point you pointed out about the \"loved ones never leave you\", but I\'ve always thought that Luna, while she does believe this, is more deeply affected by her mother\'s loss than she makes known. =)
Thank you so very much for you sweet, kind review. I\'m very glad I managed to portray Luna well--OOCness is one of my biggest pet peeves.
PS-You\'re right, Barmy is rather like a chubby Dobby. With larger and hairier ears, of course. ;)
Summary: Lord Voldemort made a deal with someone who even he considers superior, and if he doesn't fulfill his side of it, then he'll be mortal again!
I am Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff house, and this is my submission for the Deathly Hallows prompt in the New Year's Challenge.
Although this story's a one-shot for the challenge, I may add more chapters after the contest is over.
EDIT: Dude! This story came in second in the "Deathly Hallows" prompt of the New Years' Challenge! So, let's do the "2nd Place Dance!" (It's a lot like the Cha-Cha slide.)
This was crisp and funny. I like your imagination and inventiveness. Who would have associated Deathly Hallows with a person? Well done, Schmerg, you deserve the prize! You can be a great children's writer, you know....the generation does need good humour
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! I do actually plan to be a children\'s writer when I grow up... (to use the phrase \'grow up\' lightly). Mr. Deathly also appears in the insane story \"Oh No, Nott Again.\"
Summary: It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.

This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)
EXCITING NEWS! "The E-Journal of an Evil Janitor" is now continued as a Twitter blog! Go to Twitter dot com and find thedarklord666. Voldy's waiting!
Haha good one, especially Nagini editting the comments thing!
Author's Response: Thank ye!
Summary: Ever wondered why Florean Fortescue was taken by the Death Eaters?
Lord Voldemort is on the quest to find the best, evilest flavour of ice cream, and he will stop at nothing to get it.
This is a very short, very silly and quite OOC little one-shot written as consolation for the fact that "E-Journal" is on hiatus. It's based on a prompt given to me by the ridiculously talented Inigoenigma.
Nominated for Best Humour fic in the Quicksilver Quills awards!
HA ha well done! Especially liked your milk racist and ice-cream truck references. There's a really innocent flair about your humour which I admire, keep it UP!
Author's Response: Akshay! *Waves like a maniac* I just reread the wonderful \"Summer of \'97,\" and was once again floored by how incredibly funny it was. It really means a lot to me that you liked it.
Summary: This fanfiction writer laments the loss of her favourite dark lord in a re-donk-ulous poem.
This is not very complimentary to Volders, so don't tell him about it if you see him around, okay?
Deathly Hallows spoilers.
Four times nominated for Best Poem in the Quicksilver Quills Awards!
Ha ha, brilliant Schmergo, this is the best tribute Voldemort could get - this song should DEFINITELY be sung at his burial!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you! (Though it is a bit sad that something this insulting is the best Voldy could get.) Oddly enough, when I write \'poems,\' I write them first as songs, so I could technically sing it at his funeral if he weren\'t so... fictional...
Summary: Anyone heard those rumours about a Harry Potter musical?
It better be just like this.
No, but seriously, it's a spoof of the songs from Disney channel's infamous "High School Musical," telling the tale of JK Rowling's infamous "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." (I was dared; I took the challenge.)
You will never see the Basilisk the same way again.

Twice nominated for Best Poem in the Quicksilver Quills Awards!
Haha coool!! Yesterday I watched HPCoS again and day before HSM2. Cool, I really loved them - fitted perfect with the lyrics and were more enjoyable than the original!! Especially liked Ron saying "A hug..or a handshake would do"!
Author's Response: Akshay! Oh, thank you! I\'m glad you thought it was funny... it wasn\'t as much fun to spoof as \"Phantom\" or the Beatles because these songs are shorter and more pop-ish and don\'t tell a story as much as the all-singing Phantom or the truly imaginative Beatles lyrics, so there wasn\'t as much I could get across!
