I'm curious about HP fanfic- can folks use the characters and settings that JKR created to capture my imagination the way she does? Can I?
I've been working on my first piece of fic- ever- so I guess I'll find out the answer to that last question soon. I do some editing for a living, so the challenge will be keeping the same high standards in canon (not to mention grammar... spelling... and that whole "having to discard something because it doesn't fit the story/ring true for the character/etc.).
Wish me luck! :)
You scored as Sirius Black. You are a gifted wizard and very loyal to your allegiance. Whilst you have a big heart and care very much about those around you, you can be a little arrogant and reckless at times.

Summary: One hot summers day, all is unusually peaceful for the Marauders, as they laze about in the Grounds. Of course, they can’t possibly stand for that sort of thing, so James decides to begin a word game with his friends that ends up with Lily being kissed, Sirius running for his life, and Dumbledore remembering his youthful days ... it could only happen to the Marauders!

That was *fun*. The interplay between the Marauders was, well, brilliant. Loved the language as well. Nice job!
