Why, hello there! I am FenrirG, but everyone around here knows me as Fenn. I'm a proud Ravenclaw over on the beta boards, and am also a PI Accredited Beta Reader. I'm a member of SBBC, and absolutely love writing and fanfiction of all sorts.
Ahem. More about me, you ask? The truth is, I'm not too fond of giving out personal information. (Understatement of the year) But here are the essentials:
I ship Lily/James and Dramione. I have an unhealthy obsession with werewolves. I love Romance and Maurader Era fics. I was the June Ravenclaw of the Month, and won the Gauntlet Round 4. I love my Turnips!
Now, as for my stories. I have four chaptered fics up currently: Fenrir, Barmy With Love, Peeves and the Blue Fairy, and The Lycanthrope and the Leper. However, the first three are currently on hiatus, as I'm very engrossed with the L and L.
There was a little Ravensprout
Her name was FenrirG
And she thought that Turnip-Land
Was the best place to be
The other 'Claws were kind to her
And taught her all they knew
Now she's a juicy Turnip
Who will do the same for you
Wow... Sly, this story is absolutely amazing. There are so many things you did wonderfully that I scarcely know where to begin, but I suppose I'll try as best I can.
First of all, your characterization of Hermione was perfect; she somehow managed to stay true to her canon characterization, but it was clear how she has matured throughout the course of the war. Her emotions and her distress were very realistic, and the speech was absolutely beautiful.
"I refuse to stand up here today and pretend that the war didn’t happen. I am not going to pretend that there aren’t students here who have lost their parents and parents here who have lost their children." -This is such a wondeful and truthful statement--just beautiful!
"Our loved ones are gone because of hate.
" This sentence--and the entire paragraph preceding it--was just beautiful. It was eloquently and wonderfully written, and it is also amazing how true it is even in our real-life society. Beautiful.
My only bit of concrit is that "N.E.W.T.s" is supposed to be all capitalised, but other than that this was flawless. Wonderful, wonderful job.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for all the compliments. You really pulled some of my favorite lines from the story. I\'m glad they left an impact.
Thanks for pointing out N.E.W.T.s. I will try to remember to fix that when it\'s not 2am. ;)
Anyway, thanks so much for the review and I\'m glad you enjoyed the story.
Hello there! I don't believe we've been properly introduced, but you've probably seen me around the forums recently--I'm a 'Claw as well. =)
This is succhh a wonderful, cute, quirky, and funny poem. It's hilarious and well-written, and stays very true to the original poem. I just *love* the hippogriff names, I was laughing hysterically when I read them.
Gosh, you've gone and put me in the holiday spirit--and it's February! Great poem, I'm off to checkk your other stories. =) *turnip hug*
Author's Response: Hi there FenrirG! Nice to meet a fellow \'Claw! Thanks for reading this little piece, I\'m so glad you enjoyed it. I\'m really happy to hear you laughed, I had such fun with parts of this! I really appreciate the lovely review. Thanks again and see you around the forums! ~Gina :)
Schmergo, this is Hilarious!
You have a very witty and brilliant sense of humor, and not to mention an imagination to envy. I'm not at all surprised that you won the challenge (haha, although I shouldn't be--I saw it posted somewhere =P) and I'm *very* glad I discovered all your fabulous stories.
I can't wait for more stories from you!
Author's Response: Awww, thank you! Personally, I think this is my weakest fic so far, but I\'m glad you like my sense of humour. ^__^ I like your stories as well, dude. (I call everyone dude, by the way, regardless of gender.)
*cheers* *hugs Turnips* I love it!
This is just another reason I love my 'Claws so much. *happy sight* This is brilliant, hilarious, and oh-so-creative, and it fills me with pride for being a Turnip. Also, a special thanks to Gina, who I believe organized all of this. =)
*warm fuzzies* Fenn
Aww, I absolutely loved this story!
Now, I'm usually the anti-Ron/Hermione sort, but I found this story absolutely delightful. It was the perfect mix of substance and fluff; it's adorable from start to finish. Both Ron and Hermione are delightfully in character, and it was such a cute, creative idea... I loved it! Once again, great job. =] This is amazing.
Author's Response: Thanks Fenn, you\'re wonderful. Always happy to please Ron/Hermione haters. :-)
Wow, I think that this was a very good beginning to a promising story. Very depressing, but good nonetheless. Congrats on a job well done, and I look forward to following your story as it progresses.
Oh my... That was wonderful.
I was just reading through the fic, thinking how sweet and lovely it was... I was about three lines up from the tombstone engraving and my eyes flicked down... Wow. My jaw just dropped, and by the time I finished I was totally floored. I've never cried for a fic before, but yours brought me pretty close.
A++ It may havae been fluffy and sad, but boy did it get my adreneline going!
Albus Dumbledore is a man of many secrets. One of them is his secret identity as an advice columnist, the Wise Wizard. When he coerces Snape to fill in, readers discover the Sagacious Sorcerer answering their queries would be better named Snarky Severus!
What a crack up!
Greatt story, I love it! I can totally see Dumbledore having an advice column as a hobby... =) It's a great story, are you planning on more chapters or a sequel?
Author's Response: Thank you for loving the story! It was a one shot inspired by a recent chapter of my Remus and Tonks story, but I\'m happy you\'d like it to be more than one chap! ^_^
Nice fic! I like it a lot, but are you sure you don't want to add some more chapters? (Hint hint) I'd just love some more, it's great!
Author's Response: Hmm, well, I\'ll have to think about it, FenrirG... I have a lot going on right now, but I\'ll definitely consider it! Thanks for the compliments!! =) --RP
Ohhh, I really like this Pixichik!
You certainly are multitalented! =) Bannermaking, poetry, you can do it all!
I really like your poetry style, it's very distinct and refreshing. A sad but beautiful poem... I love the last few stanzas, especially.
Great job! =))
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you liked it.
Wow--this is a very amazing poem... it is deep and poingant, and you've really captured Petunia's emotional anguish with remarkable insight and believability,
I love how you managed to stay true to "Annabelle Lee" while maintaining your own distinct style. Your word choice and diction is marvellous; simple yet powerful. My favorite part would have to be:
"Everyday when I look at her son I think thoughts,
Of my beautiful sister Lily.
Every night when I lie in my bed I dream dreams,
Of my beautiful sister Lily.
For I know that when she left a part of me died.
I would give the world to again be by her side,"
Simply beautiful... I am deeply touched by this poem, for it captures Petunia's emotions, regrets, and sorrow so very well... It's beautiful.
Author's Response: Aw, thanks so much. I really enjoyed writing this. It was a bit of challenge trying to keep true to the meter in \"Annabelle Lee,\" but it helped teach me the importance of word choice. I\'m glad you enjoyed my little poem, and thanks a bunch for the review!
Oh my gosh!!!!
I first discovered the link to this in a "Fanon Ships" thread over in the beta boards, and boy am I glad I did!
This is absolutely hilarious! I'm a huge fan of weird/cute fics (heck, I have a Luna/House Elf fic!) and this one just has to take the cake. It's insanely adorable, and just... *squee*
Okay, I'm done now. =) Great job... Any chance of a sequel?
PS-I know what "twitterpated" is. xD
Author's Response: OMG!!! there is a link in the forums???? I had no idea! *equally squee* I have to check that out Now. omg.
k, getting over that, I\'m so glad that you like it! I\'m planning a sequel/prequel/havent decided yetsometime in the next few months, so keep you eyes open for that..Oh, and i am going to have to check you fic out - Luna/House Elf? Tha is awesome :D
Oh, I really like this story! It sounds like it's off to a great start, and I can't wait for an update. =)
Author's Response: Thanks! I just got the second chapter back from my beta today, so I hope it will be up soon!
Hello! This is a very nice poem, simple but poingant. I like it, and keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you liked it!
Oh. My. Gosh.
This was simply amazing. It has got to be one of the most beautiful, deep, meaningful fanfictions I've ever met. It's very clear that you've put a lot of thought into the story. It was so very sad, yet heartwarming and beautiful.
I'm so glad I decided to read it. Wonderful, wonderful job.
Author's Response: *Grins* Thank you! :)
*coos* Hello there, Flangst, you cute little bunny-wabbit... My how you've grown! *done cooing*
Okay, on to the review. This was a truly brilliant prologue to what promises to be an excellent story. You captured Ron's and Hermione's grief excellently, and the end of the chapter was most profound. I cannot wait to read the rest of this wonderful fic---keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thanks for your review, Fenn. I have to thank Gina for her \'angst\' insight though. Lol.
Wow! You are an absolutely brilliant writer--I simply love this story. Your imagery is so real and so vibrant... I can almost see the ripples on the lake, and smell the rain as it hits the ground... seriously!
I've personally never found Luna/Draco to be very realistic, but you've portrayed their tumultuous relationship in a very real, believable way. Although Luna isn't acting the way we've grown accustomed to, she is by no means out of character--you really managed to show how Luna has changed, without going into too much detail or backstory.
You've managed to set a very bleak, hopeless mood to the story; that's something not many authors are able to fully achieve. I can almost feel the emotional upheaval Luna and Draco are going through... but it really leaves me dying for more--how did they fall in love, and how will things end? But I suppose that's what makes this fanfiction so amazing... the past and the future are so vague, leaving it open to the reader's own interpretation.
Now, for the nit-picking! I only have a couple small issues.. here they are:
“Oh what haven’t we sacrificed?” There should be a comma after "Oh". =)
Secondly, the last sentence is great--but a teeny bit awkward. Maybe it should be "...every word she used she had learned from him." Just a friendly suggestion. =P
I thought there was one more little thing I was going to point out, but I can't find it anymore--I was to immersed in reading the rest of the fabulous story. Judging by the fact that I can't find it, I guess it is absolutely fine the way it is.
All in all, though, you're a simply amazing author. Your style is beautiful and unique, and you've managed to bring a simple story to life with your wonderful imagery and descriptions. I'm very impressed--keep up the good work, and I can't wait to read more stories from you.
PS-I see you have a warning for Character Death... but I didn't notice it--am I missing or overlooking something very important?
Author's Response: Thanks so much for this lovely, spew-worthy review. First and foremost your compliments were to rival the text of the story in their vibrancy and quality, and I thank you for them. Secondly, I don\'t think I could auctually write a long-term fiction in which they fall in love. (I don\'t know if I could portray it realistically) Which is the main reason I strayed away from that. The thing with rarepaires is that the only real way to write them is to write the trouble in their relationship, otherwise it comes off as even more unrealistic. Thanks so much for your nit-picking, I really appreciate it. I\'ll go in and fix those things right now. Oh and the character death was that Lucuis Malfoy was killed by Draco, but that\'s fairly minor. I\'d just thought I\'d rather be safe than sorry.
Awwww! I just read this fic and I really do love it. It was so sad at first, but Eloise is such a sweet character and the end was just... Lovely.
It really was a very touching, refreshing fic, and I simply loved it. Your characterization of Eloise was excellent, and I'm definitely going to be reading your other stories!
Author's Response: YAY! Thank you! :D *is happy*
Squee! I'm so happy this is up!!!
Like I said before, this is an amazing poem. Your rhyme scheme is very unique yet beautiful, and the poem is both tremendously fun and deeply poingant. It was such a creative idea to get in the... errr, head?... of a Firebolt... I just love this poem! Keep up the excellent work, and I can't wait to read more poems from you!
Author's Response: Thank you soooo much Fenn!! You\'re making me tear here! ;) I am also so excited this is up.... \"SQEEEE!!\" about sums up my feelings! I got this idea one day while I was daydreaming away from my really boring teacher... I guess occasionally, not paying attention is a good thing! I will write more poems for sure, and probably some one-shots too. I can\'t wait either! Thanks so much, you rock! *double huggles!*
Kate, this story is simply marvelous. It was so engaging and enchanting; I simply loved how the letters flowed together. A lot of time in stories like this, authors become to engaged in letters to fully develop a plot; however, you managed to work in a wonderful storyline so smoothly and seamlessly that it seemed completely natural.
I love how both Hermione and Draco were completely in character, while you also managed to show how they had changed. It was lovely, my dear, simply lovely. =] I adore how you worked Romeo and Juliet into the letters; it was a very sweet, lovely touch.
This was an absolutely fantastic story, and I’m definitely going to be reading more of your work, Keep up the wonderful writing!
Author's Response: Fenn! Thanks so much! I\'m glad you really enjoyed it!
