Bio:
Hello, readers and authors, alike,

Welcome to my authors page! I, for those of you who do not know me, and Claire. You might know me from the forums, of which I have been a member since April 2007.

I love to act and sing, and have taken the lead in a school musical. I am known around my high school as the "Harry Potter Expert", and writer. Gryffindor is my house on the boards( Toaster pride!).

I have one dog, but have had several fish that sadly expired.

I love musicals, though my favorite has to be either Guys and Dolls or the songs from Chicago. I am an utter Broadway drama queen, and my iPod is filled with showtunes. Any thoughts on musicals? PM me!

My favorite character in Harry Potter is Tom Riddle, though I do have a crush on Harry. My other favorites include, but are not limited to, Neville, Luna, Ginny, Sirius, Remus, and Lily.

I don't have an die-hard ships that I support, but have several that I favor.

But, my favorite have to be: Tom/Minerva, Remus/Tonks, Ron/Luna, Harry/Luna, Draco/Ginny, and Neville/Luna. As you can see, I love Luna related ships.

Favorite musicals: Guys and Dolls, The Drowsy Chaperone, Mary Poppins, Into the Woods, Chicago, A Wonderful Town, A Chorus Line, Peter Pan, and Annie Get Your Gun!

My favorite books: Harry Potter(obviously!), the Cherub series, the Twilight series, anything by Mary Higgins Clark, Sherlock Holmes, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Pearl, and the Bible.

My Favorite Singers/Bands: Daughtry, Queen, Mika, Maroon 5, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Nickelback, Black Eyed Peas, Kenny Chesney(*drool*), Bon Jovi

Letters by Abbey
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: The War is over, and Harry thinks that's it. No more grief, no more fighting, no more pain.

But when he finds the letters, Harry realises that the worst grief can be for someone you barely knew, the hardest fighting can be against the past, and the most torturing pain only comes from inside your heart.

Hello!

Honestly, I wasn't that impressed with this story. It wasn't bad per say, but it didn't put a spark in my mind/heart like stories that I really like do. So, why not tell you things to improve on?

First of all, watch the little details. For example, look at this excerpt and tell me what is wrong with it: " "Yep, you really should get to sleep. Careful not to wake the portraits on your way!" he called over his shoulder as he disappeared into the shadows of the next corridor." Harry is telling Hermione to be quiet, because of the consequences if she is caught, right? Well, then, why is he yelling/calling to her as he leaves? Wouldn't that strike up the same result.

Okay, characterization was my other issue. Snape was way OC. I understand that this was for a humourous effect, but it isn't very believeable in my opinion. If you were in Snape's home, do you think he would be playing with submarines in the bathtub? I honestly don't, but it did have a funny impression on me.

Hermione was IC, and I congratulate you on that. :D The thoughts running through he head were very good. One thing that I was wondering, what was Harry doing out of bed? Wouldn't they have asked each other what they were doing out of bed?

Keep writing!

*Claire*

Wow. The ending of this was terrifyingly amazing. I had goosebumps, but smiled when he went to join James and Lily. You really know how to mold words to do what you want them to do. To portray what needs to be portrayed.

But, why was Regulus there? I didn't think that that was necessary to make it better, but it didn't really harm it. Also, it was mostly dialogue. I would include more setting details to put forth the mood of the story.

*Claire*
(Gryffindor Review Crew)

Author's Response: Regulus was there b/c I believed him to be RAB before DH, and I figured if he was, then he was a hero. As far as setting, I was going for the idea that they were floating in emptiness, so there really wasn\'t that much to say other than that. I\'m really glad you liked it so much!

This was very well written. You obviously know what you are doing. The mood of the story, its suspense, helped it along very well. Throughout the fic, you didn't know if Snape and Draco would get caught. That is what suspense is al about, and you achieved it!

I also liked Bella's characterization. You really proved that she would do whatever necessary to get the runaways after the death if her sister. She also showed her light side when it came to someone she really cared for.

It was one of those good quality fics that made you feel that there really are great authors out there.

*Claire*

Author's Response: Oh, I\'m thrilled with your comments on suspense! It is tricky to know if you are writing something suspenseful because as the writer you obviously know what\'s coming next! And thanks for the comments on Bella. I\'m not a big Bella writer but I\'ve written her a few times (and read her a bunch) and really think she\'s a study in contrasts, you know? I think she\'d care very much if someone close to her were killed, and I think she\'d be vicious in her grief. I\'m so glad you enjoyed this story! Thanks so much for reading it and leaving such a wonderful review! ~Gina :)

But, I do have a few questions. Why was Dumbles wearing midnight blue robes? Were there Muggles around, or was he invisible? Also, why did he smile? Was he thinking something along the lines of: You can do better than this, Tom?
Great fic!

This was amazing! The way you described Dumbledore was great, except that I didn't think he would ever be that powerless. Voldemort feared him greatly. Also, the plot was great, and kept me reading throughout the fic. It was amazing, but I think that you could have characterized Harry better. I understand that he might have been under a trance, but not without a fight. Great story! It's going on my favs list!

Hmmmm, I've never really read a story like this before. It was interesting, but at the same time, a bit confusing. I thinkt that what made it that way was the different parts. I don't think it needed that, and a few good astericks(sp?) could have replaced it just fine. I like the idea, though of Sirius asking his cousin if she would like to run away to the Potters with him. This made me smile, as I had never thought of this.

SO, what inspired you to write this? It is so sweet, but you mixed in some other feelings that I can't honestly pick out. I love when you say;

She has always questioned the night skies- why am I here? What is happening? Why does it have to be this way? In another time, in another place, things might have been different. But perhaps, they were never meant to be.


That is probably the best line of the fic. It is so sad, and it really pulls out feelings from your reader. I also love the line about Meda's exceptions. That was so perfect, and fit in so well.

Priz-

I liked this fic a lot. You really know how to write romance, and it helped that some of it was based on your first kiss. The kiss was very believable, and it didn't seem like you were adding any extra dialogue just as a filler. Great job, as that goes!

In the beginning, when Roxanne was lying on the floor, the way that you described her feelings and pain was very good. It was detailed, and it was like you were there, and had interviewed her! I loved that!

The way that you used flashbacks in the fic were great! It was nessecary in the fic, as in some, they are just put in to say they have a flashback. You put the perfect moments in, too. It really showed what Roxanne was really like, because everyone is different when they are in a situation like that. It really helped that character develop, and it seemed like you really knew her. Since she was an OC, your readers really didn't know anything, before you put in the flashback.

The only thing that I didn't like was that Lucius didn't show up again at the end of the story. It was like he totally dropped out and was never mentioned again. You just left us hanging there and didn't tell us where he went, he just suddenly wasn't there, you know what I mean? I doubt that he would have let them talk freely. Also, I'm curious, did Draco die? What happened afterwards? I think that you could have put a little bit more at the end.

*Claire*

Author's Response: OMG! Claire! That\'s such a sweet review! *huggles to death* Thank you so much! :D I totally agree with you on the Lucius bit *headdesk* He just randomly disappeared... Hm, well... maybe I can say he just didn\'t care about what could happen to Daco and thus he left him there? *apologetic smile* *sheepish grin* Oh, and you\'re right... it was a rather abrupt ending... Draco didn\'t die... but... who wants an Epilogue? *waits for readers\' hands to bolt upward* :D Alas, thanks for the wonderful review! *hugs some more*

Wow, Kerichi. You have really outdone yourself on this one. I wandered into your author's page, thinking that I should read one of your stories. Everyone says they are great, but I don't always like what everyone else does. This is an acception. I love this fic!

A minor flaw that I saw, was about Cami. Could you tell what she looked like? I bet that you did in another one-shot, but it would be helpful here, if, like I did, this is the first one someone read.

*Claire*

Author's Response: Yay for you making your own decisions while being willing to take a look to see if you agree with other people\'s opinions! (Yay! for me, too, lol, since you read my story!)

You\'re right about Cami being described in more detail in other stories, through Sirius\' eyes in A Dog\'s Life and her looking into a mirror in A Moment Like This. Cami is described in this story, just not in detail, because it\'s her pov, and it woudn\'t read \'natural\' for her to think \'this costume accentuates my hazel eyes\'. :D

Here\'s the main description: The blue velvet of the dress was a shade Cami thought would look well with her pale skin and brown hair. She could imagine herself wearing it, with a beaded snood covering a braid coiled at her neck. So you know she has pale skin, brown hair long enough to braid, and later, she sees the costume bares a lot of cleavage, so she isn\'t flat chested, lol.

Thank you for loving this story, and if I can think of a way to sneak in more description, I will! :)

 

Because of You by Wise Owl
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: The latest installment of my Post-HBP SongSaga featuring song lyrics of the wonderfully talented Kelly Clarkson!

This songfic features the song "Because of You". Here we come across Draco, dark and angsty. Join me and discover what lead him to the hell he has been living through and the betrayal he has been left to deal with. This comes from deep within the ranks of the Death Eaters so VIOLENCE is very graphic and I have rated the story accordingly.

Prevous Songfics in the SongSaga include "Hear Me" and the original "A Moment Like This". More are forthcoming! Enjoy!!!

Author's Response: Thank you! Draco and the song just seemed to fit together in my head (I don\'t know why that is!) I would just get images of scenes when hearing the song and jot them down...maybe that\'s why they\'re so hectic at times! Thank you so much for reviewing...hope you enjoy my other fanfics!
