About me... well, thats a good question...
I'm shortish, (small in general actually), with brown hair and greeny/pale brown eyes.
My interests are horse riding, reading, acting, drawing, dancing and writing, so most of my time is spent on my computer, with my horse or at rehersals for shows. I do go to sixth form as well, but that doesn't count. I also spent far to much time with my friends instead of doing homework and coursework.
My favourite HP characters are Remus, Sirius and Tonks, but I couldn't tell you what my favourite book is, they're all great!
I've actually posted three fics now, but I have several others in progress, and thousands of plot bunnies hopping round my head, most of which will probably never be written! I write original stories too, but most of these are pretty bad, theres only a few I actually like.
Anyway, I'm going to shut up now, this is probably very boring to read....
Summary: “Imperius… Werewolves…You-Know-Who…” The last words of a dying man force Remus Lupin into a dangerous investigation at the infamous Feral Institute. Sequel to Oblivious; pre-reading would be useful but it isn’t vital.
Wow, another amazing chapter! How the hell do you think of these ideas? Great story though, loved Oblivious too.
Summary: A late night meeting between the two Black brothers will affect the outcome of the war in ways neither of them intend. One-shot.
I liked this fic, I think Sirius and Regulus interacted well with each other, and both were characterised well. It was a pretty dark fic in some respects, but that reflects well the atmosphere of the time it was set during. The thoughts of both were also well written to supplement their speech.
There were a few small errors, mainly in capitalisation, Order wasn't capitalised in a few places and Dark Mark should be capitalised as well. Other than that, it was a really nice fic and I liked it a lot!
Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to read this and review - sorry for taking so long to respond. I\'m glad you liked it, but I\'ll go back and change those capitilisations now.
Summary: What might life be like eleven to twelve years after the war is over? This is an optimistic view of the Post-War Harry Potter Universe. This Fic offers a snap-shot of the Weasley's after the war, with a glimpse through the eyes of Grandmum, Molly Weasley. Then it moves on to the arrival a new addition to the Weasley/Potter clan. Hopefully it's a bit of fun!
So far, a very good fic. The children all have distinct personalities it seems, as well as being similar to their siblings, cousins and parents like any family would be. I thought this was well done. The sheer amount of children is incredibly Weasley-ish, although slightly tedious to get through each one, it had to be done.
Molly Weasley was well characterised i thought, with her mothering tendancies. I particularly liked the emphasis placed on the table and filling the table, as this seemed a very Molly thing to do and showed her love of a huge family well.
The description in the chapter was also good, particualry in describing the house. Overall, I thought it was a very good opening chapter, especially the mini-cliffhanger at the end.
Author's Response: Well, thank you. I do hope you kept reading after the first chapter and found the remaining chapters acceptable as well? I will look for your final word in the whole story. Thank you for taking the time to read and review.
Summary: The eight Gryffindor seventh years are all bored out of their minds. But then, Dean gets a wonderful idea to start a wild snowball fight down on the grounds of Hogwarts. All is going well when Ron somehow brings to life an Army of evil snowmen. Their recent fight against each other soon becomes a raging battle to protect their sanity and prevent themselves and their friends from getting kidnapped bythe snowmen.
Lol! This fic is slightly odd, but I think that makes it even more funny! I really liked the book from the first chapter, and the whole revenge thing was very funny, if slightly OOC. But hey, snowball fights cause everyone to act weirdly!
Ron's drunkeness was handled very well too, although I can spot a few grammatical or typing errors (desired instead of sesired for example). I really liked the story though, it was an interesting take on a snowball fight and very funny.
Author's Response: Thanks! : ) I love hearing that people love my stories! It makes my day! *huggles* I\'m really trying to keep the Ron OOC to a minimum, so please forgive me!
Wow, good chapter. Keep going with the story, I want to know what happens!
Summary: The Marauders are having their first Divination lesson, and they quickly realize what a waste of time it is. In order to liven things up, Siriusmakes a few predictions without the aid of tea leaves. Obviously, he's no Seer, because there's no way James and Lily will ever get married, Peter will become an evil minion, or Remus will fall for Sirius' baby cousin... right?
Wow!! Think that's exactly what they'd all say in respose to those predictions, love the girldfriends bit too!
Author's Response: Thank you! There\'s nothing better than being IC.
Summary: The Order of the Phoenix and the Death Eaters are locked in battle over a highly important magical artifact known to most as Voldy's Deathpants, in bold letters like that. However, they go about battle in a, er, highly unusual way-- a Quidditch match!
Probably the silliest thing that's ever appeared on this site, featuring highly OOC behaviour.
Deathpants is a team of writers consisting of Mind_Over_Matter, cmwinters, wendelin the wierd, and Schmerg_The_Impaler. Our story was written in Round Robin format. This (and our deranged minds) explains its randomness. Enjoy!
The insanity of the Deathpants has gotten to the mods! This ridiculous story WON the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Humour Story!
Wow! My family is looking at me very strangely now, seeing as I've just spent the last five minutes laughing uncontrolably!!! I love the bit at the beginning about not eating the opposing team, and Voldemort and Harry are so OOC in the commentary its hilarious!
Loved the rulebook thing as well, great idea!
Author's Response: Nice username! I\'m glad you liked it. Yeah, I would be a tad scared to have to play against Fenrir and Nagini... and pretty much everyone else on the Death Eaters\' team except for Draco and Stan Shunpike, for that matter. The concept of Voldy and Harry sitting in the commentator\'s box together just makes me giggle... and Mind_Over_Matter is pretty much responsible for the rulebooks. I can\'t remember who made Voldy and Harry commentators. Cheers! --Schmergo (Schmerg_The_Impaler)
Summary: Peter Pettigrew is gleeful after finding out he's been Sorted into the same House as Black, Potter, and Lupin. But after an encounter with the leader Lucius Malfoy, how will he feel about his role as follower?
I really liked this, Peter has a personality! So many fics show him without one, its nice for him to have one for once. It was a great characterisation of him, and paves the way for the type of person he'll become in later life too. Great story!!
Summary: The youngest seeker in a century and he's taken a tumble from his broomstick that brings back things he thought were long forgot.
I thought this was a really well-written story, and a good characterisation of Harry. The start is good as it could be about any character, then you drop clues as to who it could be before revealing his name.
The part about asking questions is also very good, it is realistic to the story and the use of it at various points thoughout the story emphasises the importance of being able to ask questions to Harry.
The only critiscm I have to make is that the thoughts and words of other people should be in italics, like the 'Harry, Harry . . . .' part.
It was a really good story, I really liked reading it!
I really liked the start of this story, it was a very powerful beginning and it sets the scene well. I particularly liked the way you introduced Elle, and I think she's a good character, well developed in the chapter and beliveable. The way she interacts with the various other characters is also done very well.
The only critisms I can make is the use of commas, as a few more are needed in places, and Death Eaters should be capitalised.
Its a really good chapter, and I'll definately be reading more of this story!
Author's Response: Thank you, I am glad you liked it. I always like to know when people read my story.
Summary: The seventh child is always special.
Andromeda is depressed, the world is grey and Ted doesn't know what to do.
This is an incredibly emotional fic. I like the importance you place on names, giving the fic a common theme that runs through it, and showing the emotions Andromeda feels about various members of her family in a natural way.
The characterisation here is also realistic, especially for two characters we know so little about. Ted is caring and loving, helpful towards his wife, whilst Andromeda is strong and rebellious, but not oevrly so. The way you have written both characters also makes them compliment each other well, and leads to the successful interaction.
I like this fic, a lot.
Summary: Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed. -G. K. Chesterton
Can the hero slay the "dragon" that hunts his little girl and haunts his nightmares?
This is submitted for my final assignment in Professor Talons DADA: An Introduction to Dark Arts class.
I am proudly saluting you with the sword of Godrick Gryffindor.
A small warning, this story terrified me (and my beta) and made me cry. Read it with caution but please read it.
Wow, a very moving fic... That made me cry too... *grabs tissue and carries on with review*.
The fic was amazing at capturing the emotions of Harry and Catherine, and also the action and confusion of the scene with the Erkling. It makes me wish I could write action. Amazing, in short. the last few paragraphs were particularly poigant, with the meeting between Harry and Catherine described really well, and really tugging on the heartstrings.
The only problem I can spot with the fic is where you use 'drug' to refer to Harry dragging his ankle, I think it should be 'dragged' not 'drug'. I loved it though, a very emotional piece.
Author's Response: Thank you Ash I think I learned more from my DADA class than I ever thought I would.
Summary: Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I'll miss you,
Until we meet again.
Roxanne feels she's about to disappear... to fade away. Yet, she still has to say goodbye to the one person she'll miss the most, she has to keep holding on... at least long enough to let Draco know she's leaving.
~Songfic to Avril Lavigne's Keep Holdin On
WAHAY!! It was validated! *squees*
Okay, randomness over. But, as your beta, I think I'm allowed to be a little hyper...
Anyway... I love this story, and you already know what I think of it pretty much, so this review will be completely empty of any concrit. I'm sure you won't mind. But, well done! (and thanks for the thanks!)
Ash (who thinks this review makes no sense)
Author's Response: It does make sense, dear! Thanks for reviewing!!! :D Oh, and I\'d have been a total moron if I didn\'t thak you for all your amazing work! *hugs* ~Priz (who is equally hyper since this is my first story :D)
Summary: Ginny recalls the night Harry slipped away...
I love this poem! Again, not much concrit from me, because you've already heard my thoughts on this poem. But, I just thought I'd show my beta-ly support for your poem, cuz we all love getting reviews! Lovely word use, by the way, you have a great vocabulary. I'm still not sure about the punctuation, but that's probably my poetry skills not yours.
Anyway... Glad this got validated, go the next fic!
Author's Response: *squee* Heya, Ash! Thanks for dropping by! I\'m really glad you like my word choice *blushes* I\'m not very sure about the punctuation either.... Anyways, thanks for the lovely review! And go Dave!!! :D
Woooh! It got validated! I would give you a concrit review, but you already know what I think of it, so well done for getting it validated!!
Author's Response: Hi! I just wanted to say, you\'re critisism had been really helpful so far!
Summary: Sometimes, the most trivial things we do can mean the world to others.
Who could ever have guessed that befriending a lost soul could change one’s life and so much more, forever?
In the end, everything comes down to one thing: love. Compassion is the greatest gift given to mankind. Once understood, one finds that just a single lifetime is simply not enough to love and be loved. For some people, it’s too late, it’s gone, goodbye. But for others; a moment of love, simply one moment, can be enough to last a thousand lifetimes.
This is a very nice story, with an interesting perspective on Severus' love for Lily. The younger Severus is well in character, as is the young Lily. My favourite part of the story was the ending, I thought the gift of the gloves was sweet, and the last line was also good.
Overall, a really nice story, and one I definately enjoyed reading.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! :) I\'m glad you enjoyed it.
