Hi! *waves*
You’ve made it to my profile: I congratulate you. No, really, I do. Most are so immediately put off by my writing that they would rather runforthehills than open my pERSOnal page. So, I am indebtted to you for taking the time to STALK ME!!! But I suspect that most of you are here by accident, yes? Darn.
im
Anyway, you probably want to know a little about me. I’ll spare you the rant (because when I get going, I really get going) and just get on with the basics, okay?

About Me
My name, for all intents and purposes, is Sparks. That is a NICKNAME. My parents would have had to have been really sadistic to call me that. I enjoy reading and writing FanFiction, and occasionally dabble my feet in Original Fiction. I use a lot of code, both when I type and talk – which both annoys and confuses people when they don’t understand what things like *waves flag* and ZOMG!Cake mean. However, I HATE – with a capital H, A, T, and E – netspeak. Except plzthx, which doesn’t actually count. Honest. I loff snow (it’s snowing out, and we don’t get a lot of snow where I live. Too much sea water and rain) and climbing trees. I also go have work to do, though that isn’t as much fun. Pour Exemple (about the limits of my French capablilty – read it and weep, people!) My brother, Mikey, is currently staying with me whilst my parents take a second honeymoon in France somewhere (I wasn't really listening - my brain froze after hearing "We'll be dropping Mikey off on the way to the airport"). FRANKIE'S COMING HOME, PEOPLE!! *cheers*

... I should probably explain that last outburst, correct? Well, my elder brother, Frank (who is now thirty-five), was working with the TA in Iraq. His contract with the army (five years) epired six months ago, and since then he has been working with the police force. BUT HE'S COMING HOOOOOOOME!! And I'd better start cleaning: Mikey makes such a mess *ignores own bomb-site bedroom*

Erm, that’s basically it. If you have any questions about ME *preens* or anything else related to the above warble, please leave a message after the tone.




Darn, you still here?!?!?!? Fine. *sulks*

BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

To Love Life Again by lucilla_pauie
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 89]

Summary: There's magic in dates.

Harry and Ginny and the Weasleys believe this.

This is why they send their poor Hermione to her granny’s cottage in Ireland on February twenty-ninth, Leap Year, hoping she could also leap back to life and perhaps to love once more, five years after losing Ron in the war.

Hermione doesn't know it, but her parents and the Weasleys plus Harry are not content seeing her slaving away with paperwork and living by routine with a dead look in her eyes.

In Ireland, amidst the hills and the romantic whispering of the mountain breeze and the sea, in the handsome seaside village of Ardmore, someone is waiting for her.

…someone waiting for something to complete his own return to life.

Someone named Andrei MacElroy...or so he claims.

This had been entered into the New Year Challenge At the Sign of the Green Dragon and won 2nd Place (insert very undignified *squee* here).

Rave reviews. Not your usual Dramione fic. The sequel is up. ~Then Somebody Bends~

Yay!! Not a R/Hr! *is drowning in TEH FLUFF* And Hermione/Draco, like, totally rx my sox, by the way. Especially when characterised properly (and without Draco being an ass). I started reading "Unexpectedly..." (oh, wait, sorry, wrong part of the song *grins* Yay for BATB references!) before realising that it was a sequel. So, here I am. This is a review, in case you hadn't noticed. I WILL REVIEW EVERY CHAPTER!!!1!eleventy-one!!!23456

Author's Response: Keep it down and dignified, Ka--I mean, Sparks! ^_^ thank you! Told ya I like it when my inbox gets flooded. Have you received the Bulbadox powder yet?

Reviewing again (which is about the second one in five minutes - aren't I good to you, dahlin'?)! Umm... yay! More chapters! And I did enjoy this. Just two quibbles (that you probably will ignore, by what the hey): "vacation" is an Americanism. It's termed a "holiday" in Britain (and Europe in general, I believe). Two: "gotten" is annoying. In British English, there is only "got". Neener. =P

Author's Response: No, I won\'t ignore those, will probably edit this \'un. *perfection freak* Thanks for pointing them out!

Hah. Another review. Just to bug you, ya know. Because (and I'm going with the eight hour time difference, because it's easier to add than seven) it's about ten to five in the morning where you are, (ten to nine over here), and I'm happily filling your inbox. However, if you don't have reviews auto-emailed to you, then my plan in foiled. Pah.

You are straaaaaaaaange. Not for any particular reason, mark you, merely because I'm on a caffeine high - my shift starts at one, and I can't be bothered to go to bed. I'll sleep afterwards, darn it! Sorry. My cat was giving me a very Hermione-ish look. And no! I am NOT seeing things! *sulks* ... *drinks more coffee*

MWAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! One more insane review for you, lovely. In case you were wondering, I am not giving you any CC or the like because A)I'm still on a caffeine high (my coffee ran out just now - I'm living on Coke) and B)YOU ARE TOO GOOD FOR THAT!! MWAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!! (again.)

And the Welsh hold gaillys.Funny people, us Islanders. XD

Author's Response: Tsk, tsk. Definitely barmy. At last, a barmy friend from MNFF! Thanks, Sparksie! What\'s your cat\'s name? And is it Nescafe you\'re guzzling on over there? If reviews are moderated, I wouldn\'t have seen any of these here, lassie. Hey, ISN\'T Diana STILL the Princess of Wales? I love Wales! ^_^

 

Bonds of Magic by lucilla_pauie
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary: PRE-DH “We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided… We can fight…only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust…”

Bonds of friendship and trust. What else could conquer discord and hate but these—and love?

This is LucillaJoanna of Hufflepuff, and my First Chapter for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Yes, here I am, reviewing. *glares reprochfully at bruise from incessant poking recieved at hands of auther* And, as usual, I loved this. Very well handled, and who says you needed something from the "Dark Side" (Luke, I am your faaatheeeer *asthma breathing*) I thought it rocked without it.

Lovers in the Moonlight by beauty and brains
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 31]

Summary: Irene Mahavior had always taken a fancy to the quiet Remus Lupin. She liked the soft spoken boy, as she had grown up with her rather raucous Irish family. Irene couldn’t though, for the life of her, figure out where Remus disappeared to once a month. Not thinking anything of it, Irene decided to take a moonlit stroll out on the grounds one night. This one mere urge would seal her fate forever.

Hah! Reeeeeevieeeeeewing!! Neener =P. Mainly because I have no muse, and I wanted to see how you portrayed the werewolf before I posted in RD again *is sad* I thought this was very good. I loved the way you showed Irene's fear at the sight of both animals, and how you described the mutilating of her arm. I. Am. Evil. Mwaahahaaaaa!

Author's Response: Eeekk! Hiya Poppet!

Oh thanks! So you like it so far, huh? Awesome! Well, I am doing some mega editing on both chapters right now, and then I\'m going to get started on the rest of it. So it might take awhile...

Thanks for reviewing! Talk to you on the forums! =]

 

Then Somebody Bends by lucilla_pauie
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 131]

Summary: -- Now an entry to the Hermione Granger Big Bang: Completion forthcoming in 2011 (no updates 'til then)

Life is so fickle.

Full of bends and surprises. Just when you think everything is settled and quiet, something arises, something that makes you feel what you never dreamed you would feel, and face what you don’t even realize you need to face.

And just as unexpectedly, these bends arch to a happy ending...if we tweak them.

Sequel to ‘To Love Life Again’. Let me take you back to Ireland with Andrei and Hermione, but will they stay? Something, somebody, is calling them to England.

Andrei becomes Draco Malfoy again. Sparks and verbal sparring fly again. All because of one little girl called Lucie.

Hermione Granger never does anything halfway. And Draco is a Slytherin in touch with his instinct of using all his options for his ends.

They understand each other. And with this kind of understanding, comes some confusions and delusions. But just when you seem so certain, then somebody bends...
