Control the Wind is my first attempt at writing something dark, and so far it's going rather well. (I think.) It chronicles the problems of Theodore Nott when he decides to betray the Death Eaters. This is currently my high-priority story, so updates should come as often as the mods allow.

Marigold Dursley and the Marauder's Map is currently on hiatus while I work on Control the Wind. Reviews are still welcome, though! When I resume work on it, expect some revisions of earlier chapters to make the plot easier to follow.

Summary: Trains, crazy old janitors, Fred and George mooning someone, this fic has it all. With Wizards all around them, Muggles are bound to see something weird everyonce in a while. This short story is taken from the beginning of Goblet of Fire.

This has to be one of the funniest HP fics I've read in a long time...that sounds so much like something Fred and George would do!
I do have to wonder, however, how the Weasleys learned to talk like an old sci-fi movie. It doesn't seem like something that would be in a wizard's common knowledge.
Then again, humor fics don't really have to make sense. The point is that this story was hillarious.

It's very difficult to write good slash--I could never work up the courage to do it myself. Cheers to you for trying, and for doing a great job of it, too. I've read a fair bit of Remus/Sirius and it falls into two catagories: really good and abysmal. Yours happily falls into the first.
The only thing I would suggest would be to continue this...you've got some good emotions here that are wasted on a oneshot. Not that there's anything wrong with oneshots, but you're leaving your readers wanting more.
I really enjoyed reading this; keep up the good work!
Sincerely,
Doctor Phoenix of Ravenclaw, Knight of the Turnip Table

I hope you haven't abandoned this because you haven't gotten very many reviews. You certainly deserve to get them. This is really good, and if you still have any thought of completing it like you said you were going to, you should.
I'm recommending this on the Ravenclaw House forum, because it deserves more attention than it's received. Please continue with this, and don't let the lack of reviews get you down. If people are too lazy to type a few sentences, it's no reflection on your work.
Keep going with writing, and don't let anything get you down. You know you're good, and that's the only opinion that matters.

Author's Response: wow, thank you so much! I know, people don\'t really like to take time to review poems, I\'m so glad you did! This makes me feel very warm and fuzzy. :D It\'s been a VERY long time since I started this, so I\'d have to go find all my notes about whatever else I was going to add, but thank you so much for your encouragement.

 

The Last Toast by evanescence17
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 8]

Summary: The night Sirius Black goes through the veil, someone loses a godfather, someone loses a student, someone loses a member of the Order and someone loses a best friend.

‘I ask you to raise your glasses to this great wizard, who truly was a gem,’ I raised my glass of blood red wine and said, ‘this last toast to Sirius Black,’ and immediately a low collective whisper of ‘to Sirius Black’ filled the kitchen. And I added silently, ‘May he rest in peace.’

Actually, I found the exchange between the Marauders to be my favorite part of the story, so don't worry about not being funny. I could easily see the four of them having that conversation. I loved Sirius's comment about angels...that's just the sort of thing he would have said.
Some of your dialogue seems a little rehearsed...had Remus practiced what he was going to say?
I don't often cry over fanfics, but I will admit that you elicited a sniffle or two. Congrats.

Summary: Past Featured StoryWhat does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.

Here's one more for your neglected fic. People read this and didn't review? The cads. I'll try to make up for it.
First of all, things I loved: the imagery at the beginning--really descriptive, sets the scene beautifully. And the last sentence. Just...because. It's lovely.
Critiques, because I believe in well-rounded reviews: Remus is really well-characterized, but the other Marauders feel a little weak...they're not really fleshed out. Try to expand on their characters more through their dialogue and interactions with Remus.
Overall, I thought this was a very good story, and I hope this helps to make up for your lack of reviews.
Sincerely,
Doctor Phoenix of Ravenclaw, Knight of the Turnip Table

Author's Response: Thanks for the helpful review! Critiques are always welcome, so thanks for that as well! :] Glad you liked it.

I don't often read romance fics, but I'm very glad I read this one. Being a somewhat musical person myself, I've always believed in the power of music to help people get through hard times. It's very easy to see Molly singing to her children when they were little; it seems like the sort of thing she would do. You've done a wonderful job of keeping true to canon while still making the characters and story your own.
The only thing I wondered about was the circumstances of the deaths...did Hermione actually see them die or just receive the news? A reference to it a little earlier in the story might help strengthen the context.
All in all, this was a really wonderful story. I loved the line towards the end: "Her son...and now her daughter..." It and the lines following it ended the story perfectly.
Sincerely,
Doctor Phoenix of Ravenclaw, Knight of the Turnip Table

Author's Response: Thank you so very much! Being a fan of the romantic fics, I have seen many different plots and ideas put forth. And I must say, after a while, the old saying \"You read one, you\'ve read them all\" begins to apply (with no offence to the romantic writers whatsoever. I enjoy reading all of them, even if i have read the storyline before. I would not keep coming back time and again if i did not.). I tried, with this story, to break that trend. It is quite hard! Much thought and effort, and especially personal emotion went into this fic. I asked myself: what would i feel if... and it was painfully difficult for me. But I think that is what made it work so well. As far as the circumstances of the deaths, I must leave that credit to Merlani yet again. I HIGHLY recomend her fic, as that is where this inspiration originated from. I could understand how one would not truely understand the circumstances of their death without reading her sotry. Though, i also did that intentionally. That was also why the reader did not find out who the characters were untill midway through the story. I left it up to them to interpret and feel before allowing them the true knowledge. Thank you again so very much. The kind words of the reader are are the best reward a writer can achieve!!!

I have to be honest: I usually don't like Dramione fics. But it seems I have to revise my opinion now, because I did like this one. In fact, I liked it a lot. A whole lot.
I loved the description of the kiss at the end: "a spurt of warmth in the endless cold." Very poetic.
Maybe I've judged the Dramione genre too harshly. Thank you for changing my mind.

Congratulations, you're making me cry...and that's not a very easy thing to do. You've done a wonderful job of characterizing the enigmatic Founders, and managed to do it all in verse, as well. Very impressive.
There are a few times where the rhythm of the poem is a little bit off...not much, but if you read it out loud (as I did), it's noticeable. Still awesome, though.
I really loved the refrain...like I said, you made me cry. Keep up the good work!

Wonderful idea of how it all started! I'd be interested in learning more about Charlus and his relationship with the Founders, if you ever find yourself in the mood to write a sequel.
One thing I wondered was how the Potter name remained, if Grace was a girl and the only wizard in the family. Wouldn't she have taken her husband's surname?
If this is only "a snippet," as the beginning of the ballad claims, I would love to see more "snippets" in the future. You have a knack for balladry. (Is that a word? It should be.)
Most sincerely,
Doctor Phoenix of Ravenclaw, Knight of the Turnip Table

Author's Response: Thanks so much!! I was really intrigued as I wrote this ballad, and I found myself wanting to know a lot more about Charlus, too! I haven\'t ruled out the possbility of writing another ballad, or maybe even a story. Good to know there\'s an audience out there. :)

As for the surname, she would indeed take her husband\'s surname. It\'s a complicated situation; I guess that she could have an uncle or a secret brother or something along those lines who was also a wizard. I would have to work out that detail if I kept writing it.

Anyway, thanks again for the review and the message! They really made my day. I\'ll keep you posted about the literary future of Charlus and Grace!

Certainly one of the most interesting and unique pairings I've encounted in a long time! Writers come up with all sorts of pairings, but everyone always forgets our feathered friends.
I loved the brief characterization of Harry from Hedwig's perspective, and the description of Filch's nose.
The only criticism I have is that I wanted a bit more characterization of Mrs. Norris--she doesn't seem as fleshed out as everyone else.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and hope to see many more examples of your writing in the future.
Sincerely,
Doctor Phoenix of Ravenclaw, Knight of the Turnip Table

Author's Response: Thankyou!!! I\'m so glad that veryone likes my ship - i was a little worried that some might not accept my fav feathered ship...

Anyway, RE: Mrs Norris, yeah, i know, my bad... I really don\'t like her and she was the hardest to write, (as hard as a 1000 word shortfic can get...) I was going to go over and rewrite, but i really couldn\'t stand her so i got lazy and.. uh.. didn\'t. *cough*

Sorry to Mrs Norris fans.... :(

If anyone deserves a decent afterlife, it's Sirius...and Valhalla does seem to suit him perfectly. Sirius and James together in a hall full of drinking and brawling--death will never be the same.
I love the line "a hero rarely says goodbye," because it's so true...a fact that is making me cry as I think about it.
I don't really have any criticism; this was a really good story, and I look forward to reading more of your work.

Oh No, Nott Again! by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 39]

Summary: Our boy Theodore Nott thinks he’s signed up for a position in the Department of Mysteries. Little does he know that he’s been roped into something a bit more… deathly.

Rollicking fun, dry commentary, suspense, and heavy doses of surrealism with the Grim Reaper and company, including a surprise guest at the end. Written for the Gauntlet challenge by Schmerg_The_Impaler of the grand house of Hufflepuff.

Technically a companion piece to “To Be Or Nott To Be,” but who’s counting? It also stands on its own just as well.


Looks like the judges got drunk again, because they were insane enough to give this story Second Place in the gauntlet. Somewhere, all the famous dead writers are rolling over in their graves, but I, for one, am feeling very squeeful at this undeserved reward! Thanks, judges!

I vote for Sweeney Todd. Although I'm sure Hairspray would also be hilarious.

Author's Response: Thank yooooou! I\'m sure you could write parodies, though... you\'d be surprised by how easy it is. I was just like, \"Man, I wish I could be like Weird Al... I\'ll try spoofing,\" and then I got hooked. I\'m doing both Sweeney and Hairspray, I just can\'t decide which one to write first!
