I fell in love with Jo Rowlings world years ago, when I was 11. The first book I read was Chamber of Secrets, mostly because I didn't know Sorcerer's Stone existed. I love everything about the books, although...I've always hated Pettigrew. If his character wasn't such an important part of the storyline I think Jo would have been better off without him.

I do love the fanfics though, and much as I will deny it, I'm completely enamored with any sort of romance fics, especially Dramione and James/Lily. I appreciate Jo pairing up Ron and Hermione, but in my head Draco fits her better. I'm strange like that.

I never thought, when I first joined the site, that I'd ever write any sort of fic. I've always loved to write, but finishing a story isn't one of my strong points.

You know...for as childish as some of Draco's insults are, they're still quite amusing (sorry, but "Potty" makes me laugh), even more so since he seems to think that by sounding like a three year old he's actually hurting their feelings. Honestly... :^D


Someone To Watch Over Me by MagEd
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 1664]

Summary: Past Featured Story2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance

Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)

First of all, it's about darn time! Sheesh...I was beginning to think they'd never actually get together.

Okay, not really, but anyway. :^D

You have me very intrigued--I'm already impatiently awaiting the next chapter, waiting to find out what happened with sir Ted, what on earth the Marauders could possible be up to that isn't just as bad as anything else they've ever done (it is the Marauders, after all)...

But yes...bloody fantastic, this is.

Author's Response: Haha, thank you very much, I\'m glad you liked it!


Behind those Emerald Eyes by makinmagic323
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 2008]

Summary: Ten years have elapsed since Dumbledore's death and McGonagall has Hogwarts back on its feet again. Hermione and Malfoy both teach at the school. But when a new teacher is hired to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, everyone seems to feel that they've met him before. A story of mystery, passion, friendship, and jealousy… not to mention that Harry Potter has been missing for ten years and Voldemort is dead. (All violence is mild).


There have been errors when this story gets submitted for validation, so the mods have to do it manually. Therefore it does not show when it has been validated -- but it has!!

Thank you to all my reviewers!!!

Malfoy, scared of spiders?

Now there's a laughable idea...:^D

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it! He\'s my \"Freedom\" character in the story -- I do whatever I want with him, really =)

Author's Response: ...very interesting... ;D (There\'s always a reason...)

Reviewer: Darkness Enshrouds Signed
Date: 02/27/07 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4: Dangerous Liaison

I never thought I'd find myself feeling sorry for Malfoy, with him not bringing his letter along and all...

But anyway...I'm surprised that Hermione doesn't suspect something's a little off with Everett. He's obviously hiding something...wonder how much longer it'll be until she starts to get some hint of that...

Author's Response: I think it\'s fair for Malfoy to recieve some sympathy. Afterall, I am sort of making his life pathetic, haha (my subconsious hatred coming out).

I do agree with what you said about Hermione. People are typically blind to things they aren\'t looking for. Like the fact that she finds it easy to trust Everett having \"just met\" him -- she already did trust him =)

Two chapters in a row I find myself feeling sorry for Malfoy. Malfoy, of all people.

I think it's sweet that he likes Hermione so much though.

Oh gosh....Perfect timing, Draco! :^D

Honestly...the one time you DON'T want to be interrupted...But it's good to see that Everett finally "gets it"...

Author's Response: I loved writing that! \"And then he got it...\" =D Probably my favorite line in that chapter. Being a person who has experienced something along these lines (but without all the drama) I could relate to the moment. Thank you for all the reviews!

“I had some boogers in my nose.”...Oh gosh, that totally made me giggle...They sound more like second graders, not seventh years...

*delighted whoop*

Yes! Screw that Jimmy...whoever.... Harry and Ginny belong together. End of discussion. :^D

“That’ll kill the plants.”

Completely startled, Harry dropped his drink, the glass along with it, into a tangle of shrubs below. He peered over the ledge and stared blankly down at the now non-existent glass.

I loved that part: the thought of Ginny catching Harry that off-guard...made me smile. I was wondering how long she was going to just stand there...

This is an excellent fic, by the way. Just thought I should mention that...:D

Author's Response: Haha, I\'m glad you like it!

“Alright, they love each other. That much we know,” Uncle Remus said, bringing the meeting to a start and stepping over the fact that Uncle Fred and Uncle George turned fifteen and forget to grow any older.

Ha HA--that made me laugh...And with Fred and George involved in this, you KNOW things are going to get interesting...

Author's Response: That does seem like Fred and George, doesn\'t it? Thanks for the review.

As much as the fluffiness of these little blurbs makes me smile, the Fred/Angelina one is definitely my favorite.

"Please take off that stupid hat. How can we kiss when you're headless?"

That line sounds so much like some friends of mine that I couldn't help but laugh...but that doesn't mean I don't love it. :)

Author's Response: thanks, melissa! that line surprised me when i wrote it and it made me laugh for days too.


Between the Lines by chocomaniac
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 42]

Summary: This is a sequel to my previous fic, Photographs, which had an ending that not everyone liked.

This is the story of what happened after Harry left, and the secret that Hermione has been hiding from Ginny and everyone else. Harry has been in hiding for years. So why does he think that he has to stay away?

Why aren't you guys reviewing? You know it makes me sad! :( 36 of you have it as one of your favourites- so tell me about it if you like it!!!

Cruciatus Cursed by Moony 62442
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 199]

Summary: Everything in life has a “what if?”

What if Voldemort didn’t try to kill Harry in the Atrium of the Ministry of Magic? What if he used the Cruciatus curse instead? What if Dumbledore didn’t come to the rescue until ten minutes after the curse had been executed? And what if Harry had been held under said curse for all ten minutes?

All the answers and more lie ahead…

Slightly AU as it is an alternate ending for Order of the Phoenix. Check out info. on this story on my profile!

Guess that means I'll just have to keep reading now (not like I hadn't planned on it before)...:^D

Author's Response: No, you can hit him if you want. My condolences for any Crucio\'s you receive, though. ; P I\'m glad you enjoyed it enough to keep reading. Thanks a bunch! ~Moony

Bah...I'm still half-waiting for Snape to just nab Harry and make a break for it...I highly doubt that would work, but still...

Author's Response: Hmm... no, it wouldn\'t work, but good idea. ; ) That would be too easy for me to do, though. It would end the story!!! Thanks again! ~Moony
