Well, I'm 20and I just was recently introduced to the wonderful world of fanfiction. I'm very canon on my ships....Remus/Tonks, James/Lily, Harry/Ginny, and Ron/Hermione. Love 'em all. Have to say though, Tonks is my favorite character. I wish I was a metamorphomagus....maybe I just like the amazing characterization of her that Kerichi does in the wonderful Lover's Moon series. Go read that if you havent checked it out
My first story is now up! Please read and review Cutting Down His Shadow. I will love you forever if you do!
Alright, people have been a little confused as to who's who in the story. OK so here we go.
Meera Chanduramani: The daughter of Lord Voldemort (deceased in Second Wizarding War) and Dhara Chanduramani.
James Potter: Son of Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley.
William (Bill) Weasley: Son of Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
Daniel (Dan) Thomas: Son of Dean Thomas and Lavender Brown
Emma Thomas: Daughter of Dean Thomas and Lavender Brown, twin sister of Dan.
Eleanor (Ellie) Longbottom: Daughter of Neville Longbottom and Luna Lovegood
Oedipus (Ed) Malfoy: Son of Draco Malfoy and Pansy Parkinson
Blanche Weasley: Daughter of Bill Weasley (deceased in Second Wizarding War) and Fleur Delacour.
Sirius Weasley: Son of Bill Weasley (deceased in Second Wizarding War) and Fleur Delacour, older brother of Blanche Weasley
Brian Finnigan: Son of Seamus Finnigan and Romilda Vane.
Mallory Finnigan: Daughter of Seamus Finnigan and Romilda Vane, twin sister of Brian.
Katrina Wood: Daughter of Oliver Wood.
Theodore (Teddy) Lupin: Son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks.
Everybody else is either completely original characters, whose parents were not part of HP canon, or they are characters from canon that we know and love.

My muse is back! Thank the literature gods. College stress and other factors lead to extreme business for quite some time, and when I got back to the story, my muse decided to go into hibernation. Sad times. But it's awake now and the next chapter is being typed up as I speak. Yay!!!!
Oh my god. I think I just died laughing. Puff the Magic Dragon???? HAHAHAHAHAHA
That was scary about the whole Ginny-throwing-herself-in-front-of-Bludger deal. I'm glad you didn't kill her off though. :D
Can't wait for another update!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed Puff. *sigh* I\'ve always wanted to call Draco that.
I\'m glad you didn\'t want me to kill Ginny off, but then, I just couldn\'t do it. After all, I had to keep her around so she can witness Harry\'s death. *gasp* Am I kidding? Or not?
YAY! Happy endings are WONDERFUL! I love the idea of the Love Room killing off all evil...that's why Remus isn't a werewolf. And I so totally called that the False Death Charm would be a key part of the last chapter. hehe. My two favorite lines definitely were "It takes more than a bloody curtain to kill Sirius Black!" and "Stubby Boardman!!! Can I have your autograph?" When I read Luna's line, I inhaled my Sprite because I started laughing hysterically. Yay! It's kind of sad that this story is over though. Oh well, at least there's still more H/G goodness to look forward to in Magical Myths!! Wow I think this is the longest review I've ever left...
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I really loved writing both of those lines (and a few others as well). Don\'t you just love Luna?
CREEEEEPY!!!!!!! Harry is doing the Dark Arts!!!!! Uh, holy shit? Pardon my french. Lol. But OMG yikes, I kind of feel bad that Wormtail just died (I think)...wait, what am I talking about, no I don't! It's fitting that Harry should kill the man who betrayed his parents. Stupid rat. Anyways, I bet you Voldemort's not so happy that Harry's so powerful!!! Competition...oooo...I mean, he has to realize that Harry is going to get his memory back at some point and then all that raw power is going to be channeled into rage towards HIM. What's going to be left? A pile of Riddle dust. Let's hope that Harry doesn't kill anyone else before that happens though...
Author's Response: Hee why thank you for the change in languages, hun. Very entertaining! XD Now don\'t count your chicks before they hatch! We dunno if he killed him or not. Though it does look that way doesn\'t it? : ) Riddle dust? Oooh is that patented or can I use that in future?? ; ) Thanks a bunch and I hope you enjoy the next chapter! ~Miss Moony
I love this story!!! Wow....Harry the Death Eater, now there's a twist I would never be able to think of. And I love your characterization of Snape and how he feels torn between his dislike of the Potter family and his conscience telling him to do his duty to the Order! Can't wait to read more! I hope it gets a little bit happier!!!
Author's Response: Thanks! It just popped into my head one day, so I am glad to know that random ideas can be a hit.^^ I see Snape as a bit more \'human\' (if you will) that he is portrayed. Well, in his thoughts, anyway. I hope to get the next chapter up soon and here is a spoiler for ya: There will be a (fairly) happy ending. ^.^ Thanks again! ~Moony
Lol, you are more than welcome to use Riddle dust...if you mention my name in the author's note! hehe. Also, do me a favor and go read and review my story Cutting Dow His Shadow! *shameless promotion* hehe
Author's Response: Haha! I will definitely do that for you, no worries^_^ And hey, there is nothing wrong with some promotion, shameless or not! ; ) I\'ll go read and review right now! ~Miss Moony
Albus Dumbledore is a man of many secrets. One of them is his secret identity as an advice columnist, the Wise Wizard. When he coerces Snape to fill in, readers discover the Sagacious Sorcerer answering their queries would be better named Snarky Severus!
that was the best humor fic i've read in a while.
this totally made my day!
omg I can't stop laughing...
Author's Response: Yay, you like Snarky Severus! I think he\'d be fab as a columnist, but probably chagrined that his carefully crafted \'bad\' advice led to good for those he loathes, lol.
I just finished reading the entire Eris/Snape series and I must say, I adore it! Eris is a wonderful OC, and I like your characterization of Severus. Are you planning on continuing this story? I hope so! I want to see what becomes of Eris.
Author's Response: Oh my gosh, you read this too! You made my day. Funny you ask, :D, but even though I won\'t have another Snape/Eris fic, they might just come up again in the R/T HBP story to come once Moonlight and Shadow is finished. Be a good mystery, Tonks meeting a mysterious \'Lady of the Wood\' and then finding out...*Gasp!* Snape has a cat! ^_~
AWWWW!!!! This was such a sweet but so tragic chapter! It seriously made me tear up. Sigh. Please, oh, please don't kill off Snape. McGonagall needs some happiness in her life.
Do Hermione and Madam Pomfrey realize that McGonagall and Snape have a relationship or they just think that they were really close friends?
Author's Response: Thanks again for your comments. As for Hermione... I\'d say she\'s a smart girl, but she will explain fully how much she has realized (in the last chapter, I mean). Now, Poppy... no, I\'d say she thinks they are just friends, that\'s why she came up with that survivor\'s guilt explanation - which is a fairly common experience in suchlike situations after all.
wonderful. absolutely wonderful. I have never read a Snape/McGonagall fic before this, and you did a wonderful job of keeping them in character while having them fall for each other. I can't wait to read more, update soon please!
Author's Response: Thank you. Thank you so much. (*Big grin on my face*) - Next chapter will be on queue in, oh, maybe half an hour...
Aw! It's over! I feel bad for Mad-Eye though! Poor guy...ah, well, he'll get over it, right?
But yay! They're openly together! And people are ok with it, sort of...
Sequel? Maybe? Just to show like, public opinions of the Snape/McGonagall romance. And I want to see Snape propose and the wedding and everything! Hehehe...
Author's Response: Poor Moody, I know - I was a bit mean to him. But he\'s a tough one, he\'ll get over it I guess. And about the sequel thing: well, I\'ve said no before because all I have in mind is just what you suggested - a series of vignettes showing other folks\' opinions on that relationship, and how they react when they find out by and by... but it does IMHO not (yet?) qualify for a real story wih a plot and all. I\'ll think about it, I promise. After all it\'s quite flattering that quite some readers have asked for a sequel (*blush*)
NO!!!! Don't die Snape! You're too stubborn of a bastard to let Voldemort win! NO!!!!!
I seriously cried when Snape used all that energy to save Minerva. I want a man to do something like that for me...
I really hope you don't kill him off!!!! It'd be too sad, after all that they've been through...
Author's Response: A bit worried, are you, huh? ;-) I agree it\'d be so sad if he died, but after all, real love makes one willing to sacrifice yourself - ah, you\'ll see what happens next. I promise I\'ll update soon.
If you're lost, you can look, and you will find me.... After Tonks finds a Time-Turner in a 'suitcase of memories,' a stumble leads to a trip back to 1976. When she goes to Hogwarts to ask Dumbledore for help, she finds Remus.
Ok random story, I was watching TV and they were showing a preview of a new show, I think it's called Journeyman. Anyways it's about a guy who travels in time, and then they used the song Time after Time! I was like, "THEY SO STOLE THAT IDEA FROM KERICHI'S STORY!"
lol ok, I'm done being a dork now.
Author's Response: If the show is good, I\'ll say \'Great minds think alike.\' If it\'s crap, I\'ll still think using the song is a fab idea! ^_~ Thank you for telling me that! You\'re not a dork, you\'re a savvy soul with a great memory!
He'sssssss back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been anxiously awaiting the sequel, and now I am very happy to have it! :D :D :D. I definitely just read this instead of doing my biology homework, but who cares? It's second semester senior year. MOVING ON! This was as funny if not funnier than all the previous entries in the Dark Lord's blog. You really have a gift for humor. Ever thought of becoming a comedian? Hehe.
Author's Response: Why, thank you very much! Hmmm, it would be fun to be a comedian, and I do love to be onstage (I generally think myself as a comedic actress). Maybe I could write and star in crazy screenplays for movies?
Shoes! OMG Shoes! I loveeee that video and I definitely loved the references.
This story just keeps me laughing and its great. I'm getting weird looks from my teachers again...once again, on MNFF instead of doing homework...oh well, this story is much more entertaining, and I'm a senior. The end.
Author's Response: SQUEEE! You got my \'shoes\' reference! And heck, I read fanfiction instead of doing my homework, and I\'m a freshman! No worries!
AHHHH this story keeps getting better and better!!!! Oh my goodness. Brian is so far in denial, he's in Egypt! Hehe sorry, bad joke. Anyways, I love that Hermione figured out what happened. What else is new? And poor Harry, talk about a shock. I hope he has enough sense to go back and talk to Ginny about what happened now! Loved it, loved it, loved it. Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thank you! Your joke about Brian may be bad, but it\'s absolutely right. I\'m very glad you liked the chapter. Harry will eventually go back and talk to Ginny, but it\'s not happening until he has no other options left -- the idea is too frightening to him. ;-)
I like this a lot! Dudley Dursley is still a dumb brick, although I bet you Petunia and Vernon were hit with Avada Kedavra. I'll put money on it, even! And yay! These mysterious red-headed teenagers might be exactly what Harry needs...;)
Author's Response: Thank you! You\'re right about Dudley, and your guess about Vernon and Petunia is a solid one based on what Dudley said. Next chapter: Harry goes chasing after redheads. ;-)
Woohoo! I can be obsessed with two Nuw stories again! My life felt incomplete once A Past Reclaimed was finished, but now I have this!
Wonderful beginning. I love Ginny's reaction to being called by her maiden name, hehe. Ugh, Snape. He's always such a evil jerk in your stories. Can't wait to see what crazy plot twist you have up your sleeve for this story! Especially to figure out what spell that Snape used on Harry...
Author's Response: Glad you\'re enjoying it! Hopefully a new chapter will be ready soon so you can see where the story is headed. :-)
so wait, Harry has to wait another 24 years to get his mind back to the point where he was when he was...for lack of a better word, cursed? Ahhh! Another New/Nuw nailbaiter here, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: In a way, you\'re right. But I\'m probably not going to be that mean. Anyway, thanks for reviewing! The next chapter is in the queue, and I hope it gets posted quickly. :-)
I feel like Ginny isn't being very understanding of Harry right now. I know she's happy to have her husband back and wants things to pick up right where they left off, but she has to give him some time to adjust to the situation. Maybe it's just me though....
Overall, great chapter, I think it's hilarious that Harry keeps reaching for his gun and not his wand. Haha. And at least Brian isn't being a jerk.
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you liked the chapter, though I think that, given what she\'s having to deal with emotionally, Ginny is doing a remarkably good job of giving Harry time and space. I mean, if any women I know were in her shoes when Harry said that her age was part of the problem, I don\'t think there would have been much of Harry left! ;-)
I'm so glad Harry told the kids up front what happened. Saves them a lot of useless speculation. That's so cute that Lily and Harry are playing chess together :D. I also love the "Constant Vigilance" game. Hopefully Harry gets himself together so that he can deal with Ginny :D
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked the chapter. With Harry thinking like a teenager, and the memory of his being kept in the dark during the start of the war relatively fresh in his mind, he\'s not going to keep any secrets he doesn\'t feel are necessary. I\'m also glad you liked the chess and the Constant Vigilance Game. Unfortunately, Harry will have to do some growing up before he can \"deal with Ginny.\" We\'ll have to see if he\'s up to the challenge. ;-)
