'Ello! My name is Spiky! In short, I am your typical, fickle, hyper-active, hyphen-obsessed, thirteen year-old child, utterly ecstatic to have her first fan-fiction accepted.
Favorite Books: The Bartimaeus Trilogy, Lord of the Rings, Warriors, Uglies, The Inheritance Trilogy, Redwall, and that one with that kid and his lightning scar thing.
Favorite Movies: Airplane!, Pirates of the Caribbean, and anything relating to Monty Python.
Favorite Fic: Honestly, I can't give a straight answer. I am torn between two polar opposites, The Dark Lord's Blog, and Marie-Antoinette.
Truly Bizarre Pastimes: As discussed in the reviews for "Easier Said Than Done", I like nothing more than listening to dance remixes of Pirates of the Caribbean music. I also enjoy frightening my classmates (primarily by walking up to students that I do not know and saying "They call me Mumble, dancing penguin", doing an improvised little tap dance, and walking away). Finally, I am the adopted aunt (twice removed) to Watson, a baby brick.*
Below is a picture of my new fic, Easier Said Than Done. The highlighted bits are the cliches.
And here is the banner I made for Easier Said Than Done.
*Yes, Watson is a brick. He is red, about ten inches long and four inches wide.
Summary: It's baaaaaack...........
As the name implies, the ever-wacky, ever-evil Power Of Suggestion has returned to Hogwarts! What insanity will occur this time?
Note that this is a sequel (duh), so it's strongly advised to read the first part first. Just check my author page for a link!
Chappie nine is UP! Enjoy!
Completely hysterical. Already this is better than the original! Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Completely hysterical, as opposed to partially hysterical? ;)
Summary: What 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.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.
RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!
Oh my... Have I already submitted a review for this chapter? Have I already submitted any reviews for this story, for that matter? Ack! I apologize if this is the second time I've confessed my UNDYING LOVE FOR THIS STORY! Ahem. Absolutely brilliant. "I wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition or anything". NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition, silly!
Author's Response: Your username seems familiar... but I can\'t remember whether you reviewed this. Thanks so much, though! Absolutely nothing wrong with confessing undying love for a story twice! ^_^
Summary: The Order of the Phoenix and the Death Eaters are locked in battle over a highly important magical artifact known to most as Voldy's Deathpants, in bold letters like that. However, they go about battle in a, er, highly unusual way-- a Quidditch match!
Probably the silliest thing that's ever appeared on this site, featuring highly OOC behaviour.
Deathpants is a team of writers consisting of Mind_Over_Matter, cmwinters, wendelin the wierd, and Schmerg_The_Impaler. Our story was written in Round Robin format. This (and our deranged minds) explains its randomness. Enjoy!
The insanity of the Deathpants has gotten to the mods! This ridiculous story WON the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Humour Story!
Hysterical! I especially loved the General Uproar. He's just like Ken Dove from that episode of Monty Python. Update or write another story or something!
Author's Response: Yes! Yes, he is, Ken Dove from Dorking who\'s interesting in shouting! I\'d almost forgotten about him.
Summary: Well... it's high time that I did something so completely insane that the wizards in white robes dragged me off to the closed ward in St. Mungo's.
So, I spoofed the entire album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by the Beatles, to be performed by your favourite Dark Lord and choice Death Eaters in the style of a rock opera. Eat your lonely hearts out!
I don't recommend this fic to those who are not at all familiar with the Beatles.
Oh dear. That had to be one of the funniest things I have ever read. I attracted many-a strange look as I burst into hysterical laughter in the library. Were the idea not already used, I would rush off right now and right one using Aerosmith songs. Once again, splendid job!
Author's Response: Haha, thanks! I personally think you should go for it and write your Aerosmith spoof. I would definitely read it!
This be Spiky, apologizing for my response to the last review. Ginnypotter808, having read your list of favorites, I can see how you developed a misconception on the definition of "cliche" (not to be confused with "clique" which is what you mentioned in your review). My apologies. I'm a tad bit irritable tonight.
Summary: It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.
If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.
This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)
EXCITING NEWS! "The E-Journal of an Evil Janitor" is now continued as a Twitter blog! Go to Twitter dot com and find thedarklord666. Voldy's waiting!
I'll inform you when I can get passed the author's note without choking or getting being threatened with tranquilizers. I can never seem to get passed that mention of internet scammers from Nigeria without falling on the floor, shrieking with laughter.
Author's Response: Haha, you know, I actually mentioned them in the author\'s note BECAUSE they\'re mentioned in the story, and I don\'t own rights to them. So perhaps you\'ll laugh just as much when you get to that point of the story?
