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"
"So Impossible" Dashboard Confessional
Summary: My First Fanfic. A songfic based on the song "Right Here" by Staind. At Bill and Fleur's wedding, Ron and Hermione have one last row.
This fic is the true beginning of the Epilogues story arc, and should be the first of my fics that you read. After this story, please read One Good Day. Thank you.
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.
Summary: On Harry's seventeenth birthday, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny decided to grant him a very big wish. Rated 3-5 for a scene in the last chapter. --
This is the second story of the Epilogues story arc, and should be read after reading Right Here, but before starting in on the Epilogues series itself.
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.
Summary: The war is over, and Voldemort is dead, but the aftermath isn't what Harry had intended it to be. Amid feelings he himself cannot explain, he flees to Muggle London. Can he overcome his inner demons and lead something other than the shadow of a life his existence has become?
Actually the third story in the Epilogues story arc. If you have yet to do so, please read Right Here and One Good Day prior to reading this. Upon completion of this story, you can move on to Epilogues Part II.
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
Summary: *Nominated for 2006 Annual Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Original Character in reference to Rathius Ratbone*
It is Ginny's last year at Hogwarts, and the lessons she will learn are not restricted to books and classes. As she struggles to hold onto that which she holds most dear, the youngest Weasley will come to learn much about love, friendship, and herself.
This is the fifth story in the Epilogues story arc. If this is the first of my stories you have sat down to read, please read Right Here, One Good Day, and Epilogues Part I prior to reading this fic.
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
Summary: After Ron and Harry die in the final battle, Hermione is unable to cope with Ron's death because, unlike Harry's, his seemed unconsequential in the grand scheme of things. Can she ever forgive the person who caused all this to happen?
(The "character death" warning is just for a mention of character death!)
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
Summary: How does a friendship begin? Ginny Weasley, about to begin her second year at Hogwarts, is very distrustful of Hermione Granger. Having to share a room with her at The Leaky Cauldron will require the courage of Godric Gryffindor himself.
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
Summary: The Gryffindor and Slytherin Quidditch teams are trapped in the locker room due to a sudden hail storm, and they both want the pitch when the rain lets up. What do they do to determine who gets it? Play Truth or Dare, of course!
Written for FenrirG for the Ravenclaw Spring Exchange 2007.
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!
