Living somewhere in the huge country called the United States, she is working on her own fiction while reading others. Marauder fics are her personal favorite, but she will read anything. If you need a beta, contact her, she would love to help.
She also would like to thake this time to promote her favorite fics, erikthephantom's Veiled Revelation and Between Now and Then. She would not recommend that you get her on the subject of these fics, as well as James, Lily, Sirius or Remus, as she will never shut up about them if you do. She also betas for Orlaith, who is a brilliant author as well, especially for those who love Severus Snape more than she does.

Great story. I'm so glad that Lily is that forgiving. James didn't mean to lie to her. Could you just update a wee bit sooner? Not having a new chapeter to distract me from my homework makes me sad. :(
Incredible story. I enjoy it very much. Please, Please, please update soon!
Summary: The Hogwarts Express brings mystery and mischief in the Marauders' seventh and final year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. James, Sirius, Remus, and Peter are facing a year of N.E.W.T.s, romance, intrigue, and, of course, a little mischief-making. There are plot twists galore! James (in the midst of saving the world) continues desperately to try to woo the incorrigible Lily Evans. Sirius deals with family problems while dealing with his incredible popularity and good looks (the horror!). Remus is provided with a backdoor to avoiding the prejudices of the inevitable real world, but at what cost? (dun-dun-dun) And Peter...well, Peter gets himself a girlfriend (but don't worry: it doesn't affect his hero-worshipping of James...or DOES IT?!)
I just finished reading this story for the fifth time, and it gets better each time. I swear, I can't find a single fault, ANYWHERE. I love this story more than anyother, and it's first on my favorites for a reason! I've already reviwed your other story a million thimes, so I won't repeat anything that I said there here. This story made me laugh, cry, smile, and be embarrased. The Sirius jokes are timeless,*Remus:groan* I read it all in one sitting, I loved it so much! Thanks for writing the best story EVER! ~SiriuslyBright~
Author's Response: AH its not the best story EVER.....*blush* you are too kind. :) but im sorry it made you feel embarrassed. i feel special that i inspired so many feelings out of you! perhaps there is hope for my writing yet!!
Best quote: "ANYWAY!" Sirius said, turning back to the Pitch. "I give you the Slytherin Quidditch Team. Huzzah," he added unenthusiastically. The Slytherins began to boo him. "HEY! IF YOU WANT TO INSULT ME COME OVER HERE AND DO IT TO MY FACE!" Sirius roared and his magnified voice rang out in the suddenly silent crowd. With a satisfied smile, Sirius continued.
ANd this one:"Hey Rosier!" Sirius taunted. "Go ahead and try sending a Bludger at me during the match!" he gestured to the entire faculty sitting behind him.
"Black!" McGonagall shrieked. "Commentate only!"
Sirius shrugged. "I'll do my best, Professor."
still laughing too hard... 10 googleplex out of ten. still laughing,~SiriuslyBright~
Author's Response: yay i LOVE googleplexes!!!! and i like the Quidditch chapter :) i was awfully proud of that one if i do say so myself :)
Summary: Giving high school essays a Marauder twist, this fiction is centered around the idea that some seniors in high school are require to write a letter to incoming freshman before they graduate. At Hogwarts, Seventh Years are given an assignment to write such a letter for the new First Years. Sirius decides to actually take an assignment, well seriously...sort of. He decides to look back on his entire Hogwarts years and write down his list of things not to do at Hogwarts.
Way too funny, it made my ribs hurt. PLease, PLease, PLease, update soon! This is almost funnier than my science class...
THE OFFICIAL QUILL OF THE MARAUDER'S MAP:A MARAUDER FAN CLUB, HAS VENTURED UPON YOUR STORY: This story is just too funny! You really have the character's in character. Sirius is just the funniest person ever, and these random outbursts are incredibly funny. I'm sad though that this story is coming to an end. But, I guess all good things have to... Keep up the good work! :)
Author's Response: Haha, thank you, I try. I'm sad, too, but I really just can't keep up with myself anymore.
Summary: Life has been great for Harry Potter; Voldemort was defeated last year and he can spend his last year at Hogwarts being normal...or so he thought. Voldemort has once again escaped his death, and he's back for revenge. This story is mainly centered around Hermione, and when it's not, it's centered around Draco. =)
This story was really good. But it can't be over! Can you please make some sort of epilogue to it, sort of like 'happily ever after' in a fairy tale? If you can't I understand... But it just ended so suddenly! I did enjoy it though. 10 out of 10, that's good.
Author's Response: ty, don't think i'm gonna write an epilogue tho, i'm not good at those, i usually end up messing up the story hehehhe. i'm glad u like ABFA! (when i read it over now, i think it's absolute crap, lol) anyway, thanks for taking the time to review
Wow. This story, and your other one, 'One Cold Saturday' are both really good. I laughed out loud when i read this line'you should get your mind out of the gutter'. My french teacher said this to me once, when I asked him if Pierre gave Armelle the flu. It reminded me of that, and when he said that to me, I laughed in his face. The strange thing is... my mind isn't really in the gutter. My friends minds on the other hand... but, that's not important. Please update soon. ASAP! ~SiriuslyBright~
It is ambitious Lily Evans' 7th and final year at Hogwarts. She is very excited about being one step closer to becoming an Auror and thrilled about being back to school altogether.
But there is one little annoyance: the Marauders. Specificially arrogant James Potter. He has been pestering her to go out with him, but she has coldly denied his wishes. She thinks this year will be no different to the past six school years.
But life is full of mistakes...::~!~::..
"Just one minute.” Lily noticed footsteps heading in her direction. She saw a hand reach from between the screens and drop a flower onto her bedside table.
“Mr. Potter! Return to your dormitory immediately!”
“Alright, alright…” The hand disappeared.
Once Lily was sure that no one was in the wing, he lifted her head and saw what flower Potter had dropped.
Lily stuffed her head in her pillow and screamed a muffled scream that no one could hear.
oh, i'm first to review! the story rox. James making Lily try out wiht only him is evil. He may like her, but he embarassed her(or she embarassed him) in front of the whole school! The whole Sirius was hilarious! Counting was painful, though, even to read. I laughed soo hard! OMG, Lily actually said yes to him,(didn't she...?). And with Sirius counting, I feel like he has no life. But I still love him. Keep writing a great story!
Author's Response: no, lily's not going out with him, but she's trying to be considerably nicer, considering she has to work with him all year long.
Summary: It is their final year at Hogwarts, and Hermione and Draco start it off burdened by confusion and mixed feelings after catching a glimpse of the near future. This is a fic about the two students as they deal with their fate and the knowledge of what is to come with the aid of a magical window into the future. (Rated PG-13 for mild violence in later chapters)
Chapter 19 has been posted. This fic is finished. Thank you to everyone who read and reviewed!
This fic is now available in Chinese, thanks to Levy. Link: http://post.baidu.com/f?kz=261897233
This story is good. I know that you, like all authors, including me, have a trick up your sleeve. Looking forward to seeing waht it is. update ASAP!
Summary: In this riveting sequel to the "acclaimed" Veiled Revelations, Voldemort has risen to his full strength and is threatening both the wizarding world and the muggle world in an attempt to gain total control. A small group of people - the Order of the Phoenix - are all that stand in his way. Join James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, and Lily Evans as they battle the most evil wizard the world has ever seen. (Reviews are always nice and appreciated - and Erik has rated this story 6th-7th years as a result of her incorrigible pride).
Erik! Apparently MNFF e-mails me when your stories are updated, so I caught myself from falling off of the face of the earth and came back to read it. Don't know if you remember me, but I just wanted to say that your stories are as brilliant as they've always been. They've proved a great comfort to me recently, and I'm glad they're still up and still fabulous. Keep it up! :*) Hope university is going well. :) ~SB
Author's Response: remember you? i don\'t forget friends, SiriuslyBright. Seriously.......... BAH. so MNFF e-mails you when i update, huh? MUAAHAHAAAAA maybe i\';ll make a bunch of fake stories just so i can fill your inbox!!! EVIL ME university\'s going GREAT. i\'ve just decided to go pre-med so WOOHOO for anyother 8 or more years of schooling!!!..... oh dear. hope life\'s going well for you, and glad i can be of some comfort. i imagine things are crazy now, but since it\'s summer hopefully things are cooling (not literally) down.
THE OFFICIAL QUILL OF THE MARAUDER'S MAP, A MARAUDER FAN CLUB, HAS VENTURED UPON YOUR STORY: Yah, that's me. My new moonlighting identity. Anyway... Another superb chapeter. You really write the characters in character and you stick to canon. I laughed really hard with the line 'Can't you bad guys wait until after the wedding to ruin our lives?' It really shows Sirius' sense of priority. But that's why I love him ;)... Don't you dare call me your hero! I'm honored, but you are truly the greatest and much more superior than me. I am just a lowly fan of your incredible stories. You can not call me your hero when you are better than me! Thanks anyway though... :)
Author's Response: siriuslybright!!! you have an alterego??? i doo tooo. it's erikthephantom ;) MAH. NO SUPERIORITY!!!! (see post a bit above for my french schpeal.) (liberte...EGALITE...fraternite...that whole thing)
And yet another good chapter comes to an end. I enjoyed it very, very much. It was sort of funny when Lily was meeting James' parents. I felt embarassed for her. And just to mention, club sandwiches are the best. Sirius and Remus' trip was incredible! That was really good, and I enjoyed it. Actually, despite my name, I can't choose between James and Sirius. They are both incredible in my eyes, and so alike. Funny, hot, smart, athletic. They are my dream guy. *Stares off int to space dreaming about James and Sirius**Says to no one in particular 'Why can't they exist?'* Oh, sorry. Let's see, another 10 googleplex out of ten, that should cover it. I understand that you can't post more than once a weekend. Makes perfect sense to me. It streches it out anyway. Oh, and for one final question-You're not going to go into a Remus/Sirius slash? Cuz that's kind of disturbing and would ruin an otherwise faultless story. Just wondering. In total love with the Sirius jokes by the way. Keep up the absolute perfect work.~SiriuslyBright~
Author's Response: lol NO. there will be absolutely NO slash in this story. I write them how I think they acted, and if people want to read it as friendship or slash I've tried to keep it open to both interpretations, but I'm not specifically going to say anything. And may I join you in staring listlessly into the distance sighing, "why can't they exist?" (and I'm dying for a club sandiwch right now. I have root beer, but i want foooood)
Erik! I'm so glad you're back, and I hope you enjoyed Paris! I just re-read Veiled Revelations three times in a row, but I was so happy to see that this was updated! This was really an excellent chapter, as usual. James was a bit more buffoonish than normal, I have no idea where he would get it that Lily would be pregnant with Sirus' baby. Very odd. I see that Lily will be pregnant very... soon... and I can't wait to see your brilliance put into place in that subject. The Snape and Remus interaction confused me a bit... I don't know that Snape would 'soften' at the sight of Remus suffering, rather than laugh and /or sneer. But this is coming from one of the very few people in this world who hate Snape, so... Sirius was acting a bit selfish, but I do suppose that he's starting to get a bit suspicious as well, which is to be expected, of course. It would not be a surprise that Tom would like Lily, but Frank... that's a little...creepy, to say. I can't wait to see what he's going to do to her! I hope she's okay... and now, I will step back and take my place in the horde of your impatiently waiting fans, and wait, impatiently. Especially since I'm going on vacation on Monday, and will be mad if I don't read that chapter before then... okay, ramble over. Can't wait for the next one! ;)
Author's Response: I was really excited when I read your review earlier because I thought up a good response. YES! First of all, HEY SIRIUSLYBRIGHT!! HOW ARE YOU?!??!?! Ok... now that that's over... First to address the James bit: James was a buffoon in this chapter coz he's a bit paranoid (almost obsessed really) when it comes to Lily. I mean, you know how it is, young wife, young husband, years of being used to insults and hatred, Voldemort. yadda yadda yadda. Well, you're going to see him change a lot now that he's a husband. We've seen the fuzzy side of their marriage before now. It's going to get darker, and James is not going to go through it unchanged. I mean, he's growing up, growing into his responsibilities, you know? (as for Lily, expect Harry to be introduced VERY soon, muahaaaaa) As for Snape: Snape is a funny character, you know? I mean, he's often cruel, heartless, a bit of a loser, and greasy, but i do believe he has a soft side. it's not often seen in the books, but i believe that if you look close enough, you'll find the true Snape. I know I sound like a drunken psychologist, but examining Snape and Lupin's very odd relationship, I can see him softening a bit. I don't know. That's how I honestly view Snape (and some other things like INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUITLY!!! oh snape..). THIRD: Yeah, sirius is getting a bit weird. I mean, he's got a hard enough time growing up as it is, but he's been used to remus and the rest of them always being there for him, you know? With Remus moving away from everyone, and he growing less and less in the "real" Order work, Sirius is hurt, and suspicious. He just doesn't get it. FOURTH (this is fun) read my explanation about Voldy/Lily (and for the heck of it)/Frank. It's all interpretation when it comes to Lily, but essentially, Frank and Lily are just good wizards/witches and Voldy likes power. Oh, and Lily will be OK.....for now....... I have no control over the fic queue, but I submitted it on...Friday? I think Friday. So I HOPE it'll be up soon. Actually, it might have been Thursday. I don't really remember. I really enjoyed your ramble, though SiriuslyBright!! Keep them coming, and I hope I explained myself.
AHHHHHHH!!! Do you now see what your readers were telling you??? WE saw right through your little plan... but that doesn't mean that this chapter wasn't incredible, which it is. This is the best chapter so far in the story. I'm serious! *Sirius:no, I am* *Remus:If you don't shut up, right now Dracula...**pull out a wooden stake and points it at Sirius**Sirius:wimper and cowers away* So another ten googleplex out of ten, as usual. This was incredible!! And the aceptance speeches are coming up, I promise you. I'll put them in a review a little later...Everyone wait for them! Sirius:Ahem. Why, thank you. I would like to thank...TBC!! ~SiriuslyBright~
Author's Response: YEAH! i was TOTALLY waiting for the acceptance speeches!! GEEZ! now i have to wait longer!! how DARE you?!?!! i give a little, and i expect something's in return!!! kidding ;)
I stumbled upon this site in November, and your story was featured. It was the first one that I read, and I loved it!! I only became a member now, but here is my review for both of the stories!!
Veiled Revelations, and Between Now and Then are the two best stories ever!! They are the best Marauder fics, and I really feel that you captured the characters exactly like they were. JK should hire you to write the Marauders years one through seven, and I'm totally sirius!!(Remus:no! why me?? SiriuslyBright:oh Remus, you know that you love the Sirius jokes as much as I do! Remus:no, I don't. SiriuslyBright and Sirius in unison: Yes, you do!! Remus, while crying: The Sirius jokes...they are haunting me... SiriuslyBright:oh Remus, don't cry. We'll stop, I promise. Sirius:bbut, but... *SiriuslyBright shooting Sirius a dirty look* Sirius, dejectedly:yah, we'll stop.) See, all we do is argue over your stories because they are the best one's ever! Oh yah, a rating...10 googleplex out of ten, that should cover all the stars... Keep writing! Keep the Sirius jokes too! (Remus:oh no... Sirius:shut up) on nad one final thing: These. are. the. best. stories. ever. Did I mention that? *Then hands Erikthephantom the Oscar for best fanfic(s) ever.* I made a new oscar for you! Siriusly, (Remus:wimpering) you deserve one. ok i'll stop now. Just keep writing!!
Author's Response: *sobs as she received the Oscar (accompanied by the rating of 10googleplex out of ten)* oh, they like me, they really like me!!!! hee, or not, but THANK YOU. SO MUCH. VERY MUCH. MUCH MUCH MUCH!!!! ok, and im very sorry that you all are fighting, it makes me sad, but what do you expect out of remus and sirius? they fight like werewolves and animagi dogs!!!!.......that made sense in my mind...
Wow. The cliffie is absolutely evil, but I think that it was a reeally good chapter.
*We can hold while James punches.* That was really funny, and I laughed. I can totally picture James doing that. But why would Lily just start to be so friendly with someone that she just met? I thought that she knew better than that... Oh and I hope I'm not giving anything away, but he looks exactly like Tom Riddle. Just what I thought. 10 googleplex out of ten, as always. Looking forward to next chapter.
Author's Response: lily's in a vulnerable situation right now, you know? she's not thinking straight... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm hmmmmmm hmmmmmm interestingggg
Oh, I can't stop crying. Poor Lily and James, their parents never got to see them get married, nor did they ever see their only grandson, Harry.*sobs* Also crying because I know that poor erikthephantom has writer's block after chapter 6, and that this is chapter 5. This means we won't be getting any updates for awhile. *sobs* Yes, please join me in staring out in tot he distance sighing'why can't they exist'. If there are two of us doing so, then I will look less crazy. Oh my gosh, root beer is so good! It's like you read my mind with the food! I hope you get over the writers block soo, as it is sad that you have it. I am too suffering from writers block. Do you know any cures? I could use one for my cold too... ~SiriuslyBright~ PS: another 10 googleplex out of ten, as always.
Author's Response: as a matter of fact, i just signed into St. Mungo's (apparently they have a 'writer's block' area) and they told me to listen to music that i associate with my story. this i have attempted, and, as a result, i actually wrote about 5 paragraphs of chappie 7!!!!! HUZZAH!!!! i think all i need is time, you know? and, as we sit and stare and sigh, we shall drink gallons and gallons of root beer together, so that if the boys ever do come alive, we will be grossly overweight. oh well. at least its not alcoholic ;)
Oh and another ps: I can't find the really bad word. Nothing out of the ordinary, as I hear them at school, oh about twice every second. Maybe that's just me...~SiriuslyBright~
Author's Response: maybe it was taken out...im not sure. i have to reread it, i s'ppose. oh...and TELL ME about school. that's all anybody says! (bad words i mean). its funny, because if ever i say one people go, "what?! you just swore...whoa..." and i say, "yes, yes, bow to me evil fiendish people or taste my infernal WRATH!!!" who needs swearing when you have creative language? ;)
Another incredible chapter. But you know that 61 cm is only two feet, right?Other than that, this was another excellent chapter, as always. Oh, if I could only write as well as you... I really liked the action in this chapter, and it moved very well. Thank goodness Lily has come to her senses... Good luck with the next one! :)
Author's Response: (see above author's response) *proceeeds to hang herself*
