I really wanted to put my story banner up here, it's really amazing, but I couldn't figure out how, so until I do, I just have to wait to put it here I suppose.. it's in my siggy on the forums though.
I've decided to put my chaptered fic, Forbidden Forest? Who Said Forbidden? on hold, seeing that it's been extremely long since the last update and the chapters are few and far between. Real life is taking practically all my time now, so I doubt I would've finished the seventh chapter anyway, even though I've written like half of it. I'm extremely sad that I'm putting this on hold, since it was my first fic and I actually liked writing the plot and the characters. I may continue writing it someday, which is why I'm only putting it on hold, but if I haven't written anything on it in six months, I probably won't continue writing it. I will, however, still write one-shots.
I'm currently writing a one-shot L/J, in which a very peculiar race takes place, Sirius decides to combine the best with the best, and Lily decides there may be a better way than yelling at James to show him that he's not the almighty god he thinks he is. The speed is going to pick up in this story, so stay tuned!!
so for now, that's all I have to say..
this is Rikku, signing off!
lol very unexpected ending. I too thought all through the story that it was a person; about halfway through I was really irritated at this fic, cause this person was really abnormal.. then I figured the person must be mentally ill or something.. but it all makes sense now! lol... very original..
Great story, and good chapter! But if they were transfiguring vinegar to wine, shouldn't that be in McGonagalls class then and not in charms?? Just a thought.. Otherwise great work!
Author's Response: Thanks! As for the vinegar to wine question, in HBP, this spell was practiced in Charms class. The next chapter will be up soon. Miss Radcliffe~
freaky ending! I can't believe he was experimenting on the students! if that's what he was doing that is.. anyway, I love this story! so funny.. a bit sad its over, but then again it's alright, cause elseway it would be drawn-out in the end.. but loved it! =)
I loved it! I laughed particularly much when I read this sentence:
She could've made your other wand invisible!
It's great! I cant wait for the next chapter!
I like this story, but I think it there is too far between updates! Please update soon!
ooooohhh, I was very curious as to how you would give a reason to Hermione's madness, but I think this is a good reason. I couldn't come up with very good ones myself. THIS IS SO FUNNY!! LMAO!!
Hey, I like your story... It's got a great mixture of humour and serioussness, and I really hope you update soon.. I think you're good at descriping the situations, it's very easy to imagine yourself in the exact same situation.. and the dialogues are great too.. Very good!
Author's Response: thanks for the review- I love it when you guys compliment my writing skills! Just for that i\'ll update as soon as i can!!!
I loved it! I cant wait for the next chapter! I really loved the part where the girls started talking about PMS.. gotta remember that one!
I love this story, please update soon! And yeah, I did miss some of the memories in this chapter.. The memories makes this story so different from others, and they give it some seriousness. Plz update soon!
Author's Response: The memories do make it stand out, you\'re right. Thanks for the review; an update is almost ready!
noooooo!!! YOU CAN'T DO THAT!! THAT IS TOO BIG A CLIFFHANGER!!
Okay, now I've gotten my frustrations out, let me just say that this was a GREAT chapter. I love chapters about the kidnapping.. And I can't wait for the next chapter! Please update soon!
Author's Response: I think the kidnapping flashbacks make the story different, so I really love them too. And this chapter had more about the kidnapping outside the flashbacks! Thanks for the review, and I\'ll try and update really quickly!
Oooh, loved this chapter... James isn't really cheating on her is he? I could imagine Andy drinking polyjuice potion and turn into James and make Lily see that kiss on purpose or something like that, but I couldn't imagine James cheating on her... can't wait for the next chapter! And I can't wait to hear more about the kidnapping...
Author's Response: There is a lot more about the kidnapping in the next chapter in fact, and the answer to your earlier questions . . . Thanks for the review!
WHAT?? YOU ANNOYING PIECE OF EXCELLENT WRITER!! HOW CAN YOU JUST LEAVE US WITH THAT? YOU'D BETTER HAVE A REAL FAST UPDATE MISSY...
Phew, needed that. Really, lately I need that with all of your latest chapters. What is with you and cliff-hangers? Obviously I can't wait for the next chapter, so they do have the effect they are supposed to have I guess..
Excellent chapter, as always! I do hope we get the explanation to why James acted the way he did in the next chapter.. You really can't put it off any longer, that is just mean if you do that!!
In conclusion, great chapter, update soon, and can I ask how many chapters this story is going to have?
Author's Response: Haha, I\'m sorry!! Cliffhangers are terrible, and I never stop using them! They just make the story exciting, what can I say? :) I\'ll try and update quickly, and never fear, you will finally get an explanation in the next chapter! As for how many chapters the story is going to be as a whole -- I really don\'t know. I want it to span their whole seventh year, and right now they\'re closing in on Christmas break. Does that help at all? There is still a lot of time left to cover, although the months of March/April (in the story) will probably be covered pretty fast.
AHA! I knew there was something off with Ted, I was wondering if they wouldn't want the Final Five to be Death Eaters or something.. Please update soon! great chapter!
Author's Response: It would make sense, wouldn't it? You'll find out more in the next chapter (which will hopefully come soon!) Thanks for the review.
For a minute there, I actually thought you had killed Ron.. phew.. so relieved.. and I sorta wondered when you would bring that portkey up.. I had been thinking that it was the ideal way to find Harry.. and now they get Ron out too if they make a great plan.. or something.. great work, as always!
Author's Response: I could never have really killed Ron! I thought a few people might have remembered the portkey. Thanks for the review.
You're terrible with cliff-hangers! Update soon! great chapter!
Author's Response: I am, I know! Thanks for the review, and I will try and update quickly.
Great chapter! Really, this story has got some long chapters.. definetely worth the wait!
A little correction:
I noticed that in the beginning of the chapter there's this sentence:
His voice was cold and emotionless, and
Ron suspected if the man he had thought his friend was looking at him, his voice would be as hard and blank as his voice.
In the last part of the sentence I think it should say "his face would be..." or something like that..
A really great chapter! I thought it took a long time for it to be accepted, but at least it is a very long chapter! worth the wait!
I think it would be a good idea to post the timeline in the next chapter.. it is a little confusing how much time has passed..
Author's Response: It did take a long chapter -- but I\'m glad you appreciated the length! I\'ll have to go and fix that typo right now . . . ! Thanks for the review.
By the way, I don't think Ron is dead. I think Albert committed suicide or something like that. Or attacked a death eater. lol
Author's Response: Hmm, interesting theory . . . well, you\'ll see ;)
Great chapter! I'm looking forward to the next update! :D
Author's Response: Thanks! It shouldn't take too long.
I like this story.. very good humour.. Oooh, was Terry cheating on her? well, I guess I'll have to wait to find out about that.. update soon!
Author's Response: Yes, you\'ll have to wait. Until next chapter. I promise it will include what terry is up to. Thanks for the review!!
Really love this story, it is SO FUNNY! I also really like how Lily tends to make matters worse than they are... I seriously thought McGonagall had caught her in some prank she had tried to pull, but it turned out it wasn't that bad.. heh.. so keep up the good work, and hope you update soon!
Though I did, with difficulty, hear him mutter to his best friend, “So, were you dreaming of Evans last night?”
Potter glowered at him and looked away, still slightly red in the face.
Love that part! I laughed so much my face was all red.. *giggles*..
Author's Response: Hee, I like that part too. Yes, Lily is a dramatic...I just love her that way.
