The name's Beth. I love HP clearly. I also love writing and this is one of the ways I'm adapting to try and get more of it in.
My favorite characters are Ron and Ginny Weasley. I also like Hermione, Snape, and Neville. I'll read most any ship except H/Hr, I'm a R/Hr shipper all the way, although I do like other ships that contradict like D/G and H/G.
Oh and I love music and challenges because they give me inspiration!
I'll leave you with some lyrics,
" do you do you like dreaming of things
so impossible or only the practical
or ever the wild or waiting through all your bad bad days
just to end them with
someone you care about
or do you like making out
and long drives and brown eyes
and guys that just
don't quite fit in"

I love this whole story arc off to review them all after reading. This first one is a great song for Ron/Hermione and rings very true of how they may get together. Great characterization and love the H/G interaction too.
Author's Response: Thank you ever so much. You know, while all of my stories follow one arc, I rarely look at that arc as a whole. And it\'s interesting, I suppose to try and see how these earlier pieces fit. I guess, if I were to repackage the whole story, I think I would call Right Here and One Good Day a single part... Maybe... And possibly lump in Epi Part I as the end of that part. No... definitely these first two stories have a kind of innocence about them that makes them unique among my stories, lighter and fluffier no doubt, with the hint of darker things to come only just beginning to sprout at the end of One Good Day. Thank you so much, and I look forward to responding to the rest of your reviews.
The premise is SO sweet. This was a great story. Loved the beach and the whole Muggle premise. The H/G, R/Hr interaction was great. Basically I loved the whole story, great job!
Author's Response: Thank you ever so kindly. You know, I\'ve been told both ways... I\'ve been told that the first four chapters make the final chapter all the better by comparison, and I\'ve been told that the last chapter is great as a stand alone one shot. I don\'t know. I know I won\'t change it because I\'m done with it, and that\'s that, it\'s no longer my story to fiddle with. But the shift in tone at the end of this story is incredibly vital, and important in the overall story arc. Thank you so much.
This was so sad throughout. Him going to his parents graves and spying on the Burrow was heartbreaking but ingenius. So glad he found his way home. ;)
Author's Response: You know, I think it is telling that I was at a rather depressing point of my life when I wrote this, and probably led some validity to the emotions I was writing. Not sure. What I am sure of is that this is a very morose and depressing story, and it takes quite a leap of faith for the reader to keep going and make it to the third chapter, let alone the last one, so thank you so much for that, and I\'ll catch you at Part II
Loved this second epilouge. I loved especially the use of characters like Colin and Luna to fill in the gaps around Ginny when Harry's not there. Paul was also a great character. What I mean is this story could have been written about H and G with no minor characters or OCs but it was much better this way and quite good.
Author's Response: You know, I gotta say I disagree with you there. I don\'t think this story could possibly be written without the secondary cast; they not only create the conflict and plot, but they give the story more texture. Sure, texture is not vital to story telling, but then neither is any other kind of device. Sure, Romeo and Juliet could have been told \"A couple of crazy kids fell in love with each other and then killed themselves,\" but it\'s not nearly the same. Thank yo for the review, and I\'ll catch you at part III
Very nice little fic, I loved the characterization of Hermione and Draco. It all seemed like something that truly could happen.
Author's Response: Aww, thank you! That\'s really quite the complement. :D I love the way Hermione and Draco interact with each other... *gets all dreamy-eyed* :D
That was an excellent fic. I never thought of the fact that Ginny would probably hate Hermione before meeting her and it's a great concept. Update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks, BatBogeyHexes. I think it was more fear than real hatred (Ginny is embarrassed about having wronged Hermione AND she feels insecure about Harry AND she is still fragiule from her Tom Riddle encounter) but Ginny would have been a saint not to feel some discomfort. Keep reading; their relationship will improve! Regards, GhV
Hillarious. Great concept, you rarely see those characters interact in fics.
Author's Response: Thanks! I must say, I never would have thought about something like this if it weren\'t for FenrirG\'s prompt, but I\'m glad I tried it! It was tricky to get the Slyths and Gryffs in the same room without killing each other. Thanks for the review!
