A kiss is not just a kiss. After a disastrous Valentine's date with Cho, Harry finds himself alone with Luna and discovers what a kiss should be. Humour and Romance in a story that started with canon and went What If?
Awwww, that was really cute! Nothing like a good, fluffy romance to spice up what happened in canon! You did a great job with this! I think I'm going to go find another Character/Luna fic now! Thanks!
Author's Response: I have Luna paired with Wesley Roberts, (inspired by Westley, the farmboy who becomes the dashing Dread Pirate Roberts in the Princess Bride) in A Tale of Two Matchmakers if you don\'t mind D/G and have time to read a 50 chapter epic! :D
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Awww, that was so cute! Very well written, you didn't end up making half the story explination, as some might, but provided just enough clues to give the story a lot of meaning. Great job and good luck writing more!
Author's Response: Thank you! I was in quite the Christmas mood when I wrote this, as I recall.
Summary: ONE SHOT. Luna Lovegood finally realises the answer to a problem that has puzzled her for years. A short songfic about love, loss and letting go. Written for the SQ Songfic challenge.
That was really good! You portrayed Luna perfectly, and in the end, it all made perfect sense. Great job! Good luck writing more!
Summary: Ever wondered what goes on in Luna Lovegood's head? (Scary place, I know!)
She's noticed that everybody else is falling in and out of love . . . but she's not. And she wants to know why.
This is a subject that I think a lot of people have.
Listen to "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera whilst reading this story.
With many many thanks to my beta reader KD the Ravenclaw.
Read and enjoy!!!

I think Luna is a bit more of a go-with-the-flow kind of girl who probably wouldn't think a lot of this, but if she was less of a kind, easy-going person, I could easily see her thinking this kind of thing. A tad OCC for Luna, but very inspirational and moving, none the less. :)
Olympe looked into Hagrid's eyes hoping he would confess his love...not call her a half-giant! After storming off, romantic frustration leads her to Hagrid's hut, where she sees beneath the unfashionable suit, and he sees past a French facade.
Wow, that was one giant romance for a one-shot, but you made it perfect! You're amazing at writing romance, even some that's a little out there. Great job and good luck writing more!
Author's Response: Thank you! I thought Luna and Harry would make a great couple until he let Ginny\'s dancing hair sway his affections, lol.
Author's Response: I just realized that I was thinking of your Kissing Harry review and that you were referring to that pairing, not Hagrid and Olympe, LOL. Giants in love are \"out there\" literally, I suppose, heh.
Summary: A trek through the evolution of Andromeda Tonks's thoughts concerning her family motto; one-shot
Very nice descriptions!
... something inside Andromeda broke a little and it hurt...
That was my favorite part of the story, I've never heard that description of an emotion! I may just be culturally deprived, but I thought it was very original!
I really liked your characterization of Andromeda, authors like to bend her character every which way to get her to fit their plot, but your's was very character-dominated if I'm not mistaken, and Andromeda, in the spotlight, was written very nicely.
Very good job, and good luck writing more!
Summary: With numbers things tend to either work out or not. So what is the right equation for the perfect Christmas for the newly graduated Molly and Arthur Weasley? Will one falsely calculated move ruin their entire holiday?
I am Sour.Apple. from the Beta Boards and a proud member of Slytherin. This is for the The Gift of the Magi Challenge.
This story recieved first place in the Challenge.
That was cute! I love Molly/Aurthur stories, they're usually very sweet, just like this one! Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you liked it.
Summary: It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.
If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.
This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)
EXCITING NEWS! "The E-Journal of an Evil Janitor" is now continued as a Twitter blog! Go to Twitter dot com and find thedarklord666. Voldy's waiting!
*Laughs* *A lot*
That was really good! I loved BRUCE. Although, he should be a bit more Gary-Stu, if that's what your trying to make him. Although, I don't want to ruin the happy and giggly mood reading this story has put me in.
One last thing, how did BRUCE get Johnny Depp's cheekbones(. In a jar.)? Did BRUCE sever off the sides of his face while he was sleeping? Does BRUCE just have a picture of The Cheekbones in the jar? Why didn't tabloids from all over the world have a photo of Johnny Depp without cheekbones on the cover?
*Is too doing her homework right now*

Author's Response: How did I not respond to this review? *Whaps self upside the head in a suspiciously Dobby-ish manner* BRUCE stole Depp\'s cheekbones via MAGICAL GORGEOUSNESS. (?) I\'m addicted to *asterisks* as well, by the way.
Summary: The darkest summer reveals the strangest light. An AU sixth year with canon pairings.
I think you're doing a very good job. you're writing style is impressive, the plot isn't confusing or anything, you display the canon characters well, and even though you switch points of view pretty often, it's easy to recognize what's going on. Good job!
There's just one thing-I'm a little nervous about Scott. You seem to fit this kind of 'master of the universe' in pretty well with other characters, he's strange, but you show the other character's reactions really well. The thing is, Harry's got to do some things on his own. I know I haven't read real far into the story, and I don't know whether you're sure what you're doing with Scott or not, but I'm worried about him. Perfect people-the kind that fully understand Luna as soon as they see her, the kind that is more powerful than Harry and Voldemort and Dumbledore, has a frightening grip, and on top of all that, has teenage girls falling all over him is not a very interesting person. You wrote him surprisingly well, but with him as a main and very influential character, I know exactly how the story will end-exactly how Scott wants it to. Destiny usually isn't a character in a story, and even if it is, where's the conflict in having 'him' support the protagonist all the time?
I hope you're alright with Scott. Good job and good luck writing more!
Author's Response: First off, let me thank you for the encouraging review. I am fully aware that this story fits itself into an odd niche and I always appreciate when anyone takes the time to try and understand it further. Secondly, I would be more than happy to address your questions concerning Scott. Your worries are fully justified based on fanfiction in general, I will freely admit. The original character is often nothing more than an idealized representation of the author. I\'m sure we both know what that\'s called. As the story progresses it is my intention to illuminate things further, but in order to assuage your fears I\'ll jump ahead a bit. Let me assure you that Scott is both neither a physical representation of destiny, nor is he a \'master\' of any universe. What he\'s doing with Harry is his job, and he\'s being paid to get it done. Harry does indeed have to face some things alone. That\'s the will of the universe, and before that Scott is helpless. Without revealing too much, I\'ll say that much of Scott\'s conflict derives from the fact that he is unable to do the things he wants to. The shape of things is the master. If Scott breaks it, he fails. He is working within a very tight and limiting set of rules, and those rules change by the minute. Scott is not very happy about that by the time you get to the chapters I\'m writing right now. His power means nothing if he\'s not allowed to flex it. I\'d also like to make a special note that the reason Scott attracted any female interest in the first place was because he was a new and therefore somewhat interesting person. That passes with time. I\'ll state right here and now that he never has any romantic entanglements with any canon characters at any point. Ever. His affinity with Luna is nothing more than sympathy and a hint that Luna is even more unusual than she seems. It\'s also important to say that it was never my intention to completely change the story of the sixth book. In many cases I\'m simply retelling the same or similar events from a different point of view, which I enjoy. That\'s not to say that everything is the same, because it isn\'t. The most subtle variations can have long term effects. And again, without giving it away, I highly doubt the now-infamous ending of book six will change the way you think it will. Obviously I don\'t know what you\'re thinking... But for Scott success does not necessarily mean there have been no sacrifices. I hope to finally get a new Beta and continue the story and thus illuminate things further. I\'ve had many chapters completed for months now but the lack of a Beta has been holding things up. Thanks again for your review.
Summary: What does Bill see in Fleur Delacour? How does a girl nicknamed "Phlegm" win the heart of a man described as "hardworking and down-to-earth" -- the heart of a Weasley?
There is more to this woman than meets the eye.
Awww, this was really good! I really liked how you explained that there was something behind Fleur's veela-ness through Bill's point of view. Her 'strength' fits perfectly into canon when we see Fleur in the end of HBP in the hospital wing. Great job with this story and I hope Bill and Fleur get a happily ever after in DH!
Author's Response: Thank you! I rather felt that Bill was too smart and has a bit too much common sense to fall for a girl with no personality. And I felt sorry for Fleur, because we really don\'t see much of said personality. I, too, am hoping that they will have a long and happy life together!
Summary: Chasing after his brother George, Fred winds up lost in the Department of Mysteries. Will he ever get out? Will he ever find George? Will the big voice ever be happy? Read on and see.
I am MrsRuebeusHagridDursley of Hufflepuff, and this is my submission for the Gauntlet, round 4.
That was good! The ideas for each room where really creative! Great job! The only nit-picky thing I need to mention is that in the books, Fred and George are described as shorter and stocker. (Sorry for being so nit-picky, it was really a great story!)
Author's Response: Well, Fred was on the floor so George only looked tall. ;) And thank you for all of the compliments.
Summary: Ever wondered why Florean Fortescue was taken by the Death Eaters?
Lord Voldemort is on the quest to find the best, evilest flavour of ice cream, and he will stop at nothing to get it.
This is a very short, very silly and quite OOC little one-shot written as consolation for the fact that "E-Journal" is on hiatus. It's based on a prompt given to me by the ridiculously talented Inigoenigma.
Nominated for Best Humour fic in the Quicksilver Quills awards!
Haha! That was really good, just like all the ice cream in it! Good theory! I had a theory about Florean's capture, but it involved Snape as a cow Animagus and a dairy farmer named Joe....ummmm....yeah....Great story! Good luck writing more!
Author's Response: 0_0 I would read that story!
Summary: The worst mistake a man can make is to betray the trust of a Black woman. Severus Snape managed to do something much worse than that - he broke her heart at the same time.
One-Shot for NEWT Romance.
That was good! Bellatrix and Snape where very in character, which is hard to do sometimes, and overall, I really liked your story.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: Dean Thomas never knew his real father, yet his father was the one who made his life possible.
I am Sour.Apple. of Slytherin, and this is for MWPP: OWL level.
Awww, that was really good! It's nice to think that Dean's dad abandoned him for his own protection! Great job, and good luck writing more!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! =]
Summary: Andromeda's elopment disgraces her family and threatens her sister's one chance of a happy future with a husband she loves. With Narcissa powerless to change the situation, it is for Lucius to decide wether to safe the Black family from social ruin or to destroy it for good.
Written for an assignment in Roxy Black's Romance class.
Awww, I always like a good Happy Together!Lucius/Narcissa story! Very good characterization, and I liked the point of view in the story. A lot of people would want to write about how Andromeda was fighting for what was right, muggleborn equality, but you wrote about how it affected two otherwise 'bad' people who also where in love. Which you wrote very well! Good job and good luck writing more!
Author's Response: Thanks a lot. I\'m in love with Narcissa, she\'s such a fun character to write and while I agree that Andromeda made a difficult choice, I wanted to explore what her choice meant for the family she left behind.
MAJOR SPOILERS A post-DH Fred and George fic.
It's been one year since the war ended and Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes is still going strong. That is, until Angelina shows up with news that her new boss is being blackmailed. Next thing, a mysterious package arrives on the doorstep, there's a spate of inexplicable burglaries in Diagon Alley, and an old friend appears to have come back from the dead…
This is a great story! I love Fred and George stories, and you managed to write one even when one of them is dead! Your writing style is very clear and Fred and George are very in character! Great job! I can't wait 'till the next chapter is up!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, I\'m so glad you\'re enjoying it!
Summary: A short one-shot story inspired by DH (Spoilers!)
Harry makes one last stop on his way home.
Aww, that was a very sweet Dursley story! You kept all of them very well in character too! You did a great job and good luck writing more!
Author's Response: I hadn\'t planned to write this, but the idea popped into my head a few days after reading DH and I couldn\'t shake it! I enjoyed writing it and managed to write it surprisingly quickly for me as well.
Summary: Draco's redemption after sixth year takes a lifetime to come full circle.
Wow, that was really good! I've never read a Canon!Draco story before, (Which kind of says something about the Harry Potter fandom, doesn't it?) nonetheless one as good as this one, and I really liked it! It doesn't display Draco as some 'dream guy' *Tries not to be sick* or even someone whose 'really a good person underneath all the snottiness, and that's just a cover up', but the real Draco. I'm really glad you didn't try to read between the lines or make things better then they seemed for Draco, and I really liked that!
I also loved the way your sentences flowed, and how everything seemed to make sense. Except for the last sentence, although it does show that he's glad he stuck with life just for his son's sake. There isn't any mention of him having suicidal thoughts before his wedding day, even though he seemed unhappy. That is my one and only nitpicky kind of complaint about your great story! Great job and good luck writing more!
Author's Response: I\'ve never written a canon!Draco story before this one. I\'m glad you like it for what it was - I never liked Drco as a \'dream\' guy or \'Slytherin Price\' o.0
It literally made me sick to my stomach to read that phrase ten-thousand times. I like the real Draco - flaws and all, and I felt he deserved some real redemption. This is one of the strongest pieces I\'ve written, so thank you for noticing. As for the suicide, that\'s true. That last sentence is a bit odd (even I\'ll admit that) but it seemed right to me. He didn\'t have suicidal thoughts in the story because I assumed it could be inferred but perhaps not.Lol. Thanks for your review!
