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

This was great! It depicted the night perfectly!

And when the one brother who did understand Percy died, Laura was there to help Percy through it, even though the death hurt her greatly as well.

Yes, Laura has been a good friend to Percy. So why, during their seventh year, is Percy allowing his friend to be lonely and miserable?

A fellow Gryffindor decides to try to ease Laura's loneliness by interfering in her life. The result is that Laura must suddenly deal with new relationships, including an unlikely reconciliation with Oliver.

Laura succeeded in being a good friend when she only had one friend. Now she must learn how to be a good friend to several people... including herself. Oliver/OC

I was a little confused. Who was Dan? How did he die? How do Wood and Dan no each other? Why did LAura and Dan have a fight? Wouldn't Wood and Percy be graduated by then? If Harry is in his fourth year? I was way confused. Good writing though. Please answer my reviews if u dont mind. :)

Author's Response: Dan is Percy\'s older brother. He and Laura never had a substantive fight (they bickered sometimes). The disagreement was between Percy and Oliver, and Laura took Percy\'s side. It\'s good that you\'re asking those other questions about Dan. I usually put important information in dialogue. This made it so that readers only know things when Laura is ready to talk about them. Sometimes, that was probably a mistake on my part. Most of the time, I think it works all right. You\'ll find out soon how Dan died. The majority of the fic is set in Harry\'s third year. That\'s why there\'s no mention of the Triwizard Tournament or that stuff. There are vague references to Sirius and other Book 3 happenings. (Not so vague references to Quidditch, of course.) The first couple chapters are vague. Answers are on the way. :) Thanks for the feedback, bertiebott12!

Author's Response: Sorry. I lost the line breaks in that.

You should put up Hermione's first. Readers would get more interested because we don't know her story before Hogwarts. Good job!


Summary: This story is about Harry's struggle...his struggle to obey his mind when his heart is screaming out in protest .

It's about Ginny's secrets, her aching heart, and where her loyalty lies.
Mainly, this story is about friends, those you can trust and those who can't trust you.

Reviews are fun and easy! So don't shy away from stating your me, it feeds the fire so I'm not left out in the cold! ;)

This was a really good humor fic! It stood out to me when I went to choose one for my Hunt on the forums, one, for the title. It was very appealing, and you know that it would be funny, because of the "interesting" song. Also, your summary really made me want to read it, so I couldn't resist. Another, was the # of reviews. So many people like it, so that was another great point!

The way you wrote Harry was really magnificent. He is such a complex character, that you wonder how he would react in certain situations, like this one. When he was at the Dursley's in the summer, I assume, I think he really would be tickled. Great observation!

Your detail was great, which can sometimes not be found in a humor fic. A lot of time, it is just silly mess with no writing. You are obviously a good writer, and can twist a plot line and characters to do what you want.

The only thing I could nitpick was that I would put more introduction into the main humor point. The beginning seemed a tad rushed, but not a huge deal.

Overall, great job, and I hope to see more of your work in the future!

Summary: Warthogs is the reverse of Hogwarts. Everybody's personality is the contrary to in the books. It is a "humour fic" (If I even dare call myself funny) that tells the tale of the Final Battle. I wrote this because I was sick of writing depressing stories about unrequited love and death. It makes a light change to the rest of my collection.

Hello Laura! I know that I have chosen to review a story that you had not recommended, but it looked too good to pass up, frankly. It was something that I never expected you to write. :)

Anyways, I was immediatly drawn in to the story. One, because it was very interesting to see a humour story that wasn't actually found in the humour category. Two, because this one was actually quite funny, and OOC-ness jumped in at all of the right moments for me. Right when you think that the humour has died down, there comes another hilarious incident. I am not normally big on non-subtle humour, but you maneuvered the characters and settings so well, that I couldn't dislike it.

Your attention to detail was ashtonishing, and it is obvious that you put a lot of research behind this. There were several moments where, if you were reading quickly, you wouldn't even notice what you have flipped upside-down. The more obvious things, such as the houses and Snape's characterization were still funny, and one funny thing didn't overwhelm your one-shot. I was shocked at some of the surprises early on, and then quickly caught on to what you were trying to show.

I couldn't catch many errors that haven't already been pointed out, actually. Your flow was wonderful, and you didn't focus on the same thing the whole time. You added in your personality and detail to your writing, and I could tell it was you speaking, and that you put so much time and creativity into this.

In the moonlight it was a magnificent sight -- a worn out van from the 60's, flamboyantly painted with flower pattern and emanating toxic fumes from its exhaust. The radio inside was blasting out Yellow Submarine, croaking and struggling to perform at such a high volume, but the Life Spurters compensated for this with their own merry version.

Your 80's references were my favorite part, and my eyes started to water I was laughing so hard. I could vividly picture a new, 60's side of Snape in my head, and Beatles music blaring out of studios during the final battle. I loved the irony in that Snape started the final battle, and that the theme was the 60's. You transformed it wonderfully into something bright, hilarious, and ironic.

I had never realized, or even imagined, that you would write humour, but you proved me wrong here. You not only wrote humour, but you actually made me laugh. I would continue to pursue this, along with your other writings, and you could grow to become a famed humour writer on MNFF. Great job!
