Hello my fellow Muggles! I'm your average wannabe-Witch with way too much time on her hands. (Not really, I'm actually quite busy, but am too deeply involved with the Boy Who Lived to focus properly on anything else.) Of course I love Harry Potter, (who here doesn't?), but in my Muggle state-of-mind I am very passionate about singing and writing. Those are three things that I think I'd die without - music, written expression, and the Boy Who Lived. I'm new at this whole fanfic thing, and will promise to try to submit my fics as long as you don't tell my friends. (They love a good theorizing session as opposed to spending hours in front of fanfics. I myself enjoy doing both.)
This "Summer to Remember" was definitely one I won't forget. I got to ride aboard Scholastic's Knight Bus (and was pictured in the New York Times for it), I went on Emerson and Ben's Mugglenet Book Tour, I attended a DH Opening Party (dressed as Fleur, of course), and I went on the Mugglecast/The Remus Lupins tour. Definitely a few things I'll NEVER forget.
Please, do understand, that I have quite a busy life with school, singing, and the many other things I'm forced to be involved with. I'll update as frequently as I possibly can, all the while hoping that Jo is out there somewhere dreaming up ideas for her Encyclopedia.
Have a nice day. =)

This really did come out brilliantly. Oh, how I love poetry! Great job, again. I absolutely love how it turned out. Good luck on future fics/poems! =)
Author's Response: I just can not seem to say thank you enough!
Summary: Helena Ravenclaw tells her story.
I am no Ravenclaw at heart
I an no Slytherin in name
I am a girl without a father.
This came out so good! I'm so glad we messed with that ending as much as we did...simple, yet perfect! Great job, again!
Author's Response: I\'m super glad we took the time to get it right too! Thanks again for your help!
Summary: Its hard to wait around for something that may never happen but it's even hard to give it up, especially when it's everything you've ever wanted.
Mary is in love with James. James is in love with Lily. Why do these two simple facts kill Mary inside? Maybe it's because James is her best mate or because he is the only one that really knows her. Or maybe it's just the fact that she isn't the girl for him when she is positive he is the guy for her.
I would like to thank butter_beer_drinker for the title, laceymoibella for the chapter title, ix3thehpseries for being my advanced reader, MistressOfTime for helping me in the Excerpts page, Mistletoe and xhalyleexblackx for help in the character clinic with Mary. And of course last but not least my lovely beta, who also helped in the character clinic, th_poet14, for whom without this story could not be possible.
Rating is for later chapters.
Excerpt From Chapter Two: Running
In my last class of the day, which was Ancient Runes, Amos Diggory took me aside after class and asked me to go on a walk with him.
Amos and I are mates with reservations. He sits next to me in most of my classes and he's a good for a laugh. We just aren't close. Mostly due to me. I may complain about having no friends, but I do it to myself. I think we all sabotage ourselves, in the end.
Anyways, hanging around with each other after class seemed like a violation of our timid relationship. I did want to, I guess. Nevertheless, I was nervous about accepting the invitation. What if it meant something more, than just a simple walk between friends? I'm not very fanicable so that most likely wasn't the case. Still, the chance for a misunderstanding to occur was one I wasn't willing to take.
I don't date. Mostly because I'm way too hung up on James to consider someone else in that way. Partly because I will never be able to trust a man I don't know inside and out. I'm not exactly worth chasing, either. Lily or Isabella merit chasing after. The two or three blokes that asked me out didn't really care that I said no. They weren't even close to being persistent. With good grace, they moved on.
While I was having this major internal dilemma in my head, Amos was patiently waiting for my reply.
Ahh! This ended up SO perfect! I'm glad you took most of my changes to heart and didn't find me overly-picky! This is AMAZING! I can't wait for more! Again, if you need anymore help, don't hesitate to PM me! Good luck! --Joy.
