Bio:

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.

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!

Okay, the whole "lobsters" line did make me snicker...(I love that move, by the way)...

And ah, Voldemort's finally made a mark on Harry...Quite literally. I was wondering when he'd get around to that...

Author's Response: I love that movie too! That\'s why I put it there. I thought you all might get a kick out of it. XD Yeah, he made quite a mark, huh? Now, I wonder why no one has asked if Harry will have to keep it... By the way, for the sake of not angering the wonderful mods of the site, please put all of this in one review if you can! I don\'t want you to be accused of spam or something like that. Thanks a bunch!!!! ~Moony

“HARRY, YOU’RE WEARING MY SHIRT!”



Oh my goodness...I'm not even sure why but that line made me giggle. :^D



This is very well-written: I love it! Harry and Draco make such a lovely pair...The fact that they are such opposites only serves to make it more interesting.

I've had this story in my favorites for a while now, but I've never had the chance to finally sit down and read more than the first few chapters.

Last night, I sat down and read the whole thing through in one go. I literally couldn't put it down.

Your writing is simply superb--the plot was so addicting, even from the very first chapter. I adore Hermione/Sirius fics, and at the beginning of every chapter I couldn't help but hope for a little, *ahem*, "interaction" :P.

And I love the way you play with words, like a work of art. It takes a plotline that's already a 10 and makes it a 20. Amazing. Thank you so much for this lovely story. :D

 

Revival of Autumn by AstroFire
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 16]

Summary: The war is long over, and Harry is now reflecting on what his life is. But is it really what he thought it would be?

A short one-shot with Autism as the main theme. Meant for mature readers. Rating due to the sensitive topic.

Loads of thanks to Kasey for modding and guiding me with this story.

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~

Hermione with no Crookshanks is just wrong...Not to mention sad and...and...Well, I honestly don't know what else, but still...awww...Poor girl...

I'm still tempted to smack Draco in the head with a stick...How much longer can he pretend that he doesn't care? How much longer is he going to keep up this Andrei charade? I'm honestly surprised Hermione hasn't dissolved his little smokescreen yet...

*sigh*

i enjoyed the drama while i was writing this chapter. a tribute to my fave fictional cat.

Wonderful, as always. I was beginning to wonder if he'd ever get around to kissing her..

I'm almost sad that it's over...But, at least they get a happy ending.

Author's Response: thank you, melissa. im relieved! i was really wondering what you\'d say. whew! anyway, im also sad that its over, but i have no inclination or skill for long-winded epics, i\'ll run out of scenes and just plain ramble, so i decided to...*sigh* thanks again! *waiting now for other beloved constant reviewers* ^_^

First of all, is it just me that finds Draco using the word 'crap' in an actual sentence hilarious? Honestly...that line made me giggle...I'm loving this story though--your imagery is superb, and I the whole Hermione/Draco ship has me quite intrigued...I'll definitely have to keep an eye out for updates...

Author's Response: wow, melissa, you made me squeal in turn. ^_^ thank you! i love it when reviewers actually point out what they liked in the story! thanks again! i don\'t know, is it unusual for Brits, using \'crap\' in a sentence? just curious. and oh my, just found out that spring begins around March 21! eek!

Author's Response: EDIT: okay, just got it through encarta, haha. i understand now why that expression split your sides. i had no idea it meant that.. i thought just plain \'trash\' or \'rubbish\'. vocabulary is a funny business!

Summary: He's got a horrible, deep, sinking feeling that he's just like the rest of his family. They're all a bit insane, and he feels insane right about now, absolutely bloody wild, like he's let some caged beast out, and it scares him.

Author's Response: *does the happy dance* I agree... he\'s just as much of a troll as the one in SS/PS. MALFOY IS EVIL, MURDERER OR NO! ...Sorry. I love songfics, but I only know of a few that really catch the message of a song. Based on what I hear from you guys, this is one of them. Thank you so much for the review! ~Sam

Author's Response: Well, the story is completed. Chapter 2 is in queue, and the remaining chapters will go in queue as fast as the others get approved, as MNFF has a one-chapter limit.

Thankfully, this chapter didn\'t stay in the queue very long (two or three days, tops)

Date: 02/13/07 Title: Chapter 3: The Union of the Snakes

I never thought I'd say this...but I'm enjoying being slightly confused. If there's anything I can't stand, it's a story with an easily predictable ending, and that's definitely not true for this one. I'm really liking the fact that I have no idea what's coming next. Truly a work of art...

Author's Response: Hahaha, yeah, that\'s probably not a typical thing for ANYONE to say. But wow, thank you, that\'s incredibly high praise! *blush* I hope it lives up to your expectations. The fic is only five fairly short chapters long, and chapter 4 is now in queue, and chapter 5 is ready to go in queue as soon as possible.

Thank you for the lovely review and the giggle. :)

You know, the first time I realized that that might be Regulus I thought I was wrong...It does make sense though, now that I think about it.

But still, good deeds or not, I can't help but think that Snape is very deserving of a Dementor's kiss...

Hmm....

 

Summary: Lord Voldemort is close to victory. He has conquered most of Britain, he has gained legions of followers, and through dark magic he has restored his youth. Now all he needs to break the spirit of the rebels who stand against him and complete his own success is a young, beautiful, pureblood bride…

When Ginny Weasley is kidnapped, Harry Potter and his friends will do anything to get her back. Now they must ally themselves with a follower of Lord Voldemort, a hunter with the evilest of pasts, and a former schoolmate they hate beyond all reason…

A tale of adventure, romance, intrigue and suspense. Based on the assumption that Hogwarts never reopened, and the battle against Voldemort has lasted almost four years.

This is a reader participatory fic. That means readers get to decide which chapters come next, suggest plotlines, and even make an appearance in the story! More about this inside...
