*deletes old about me and bounces in* Hi folks! We're going to do two reps of squats, move onto the bench press, run on over the small step ladders for a minimum of 30 seconds to get those buttocks scrunching, and then we're going to collapse into a desk chair and read!

That's it! One! Two! Three - four! Reeelaaaaaaaxxx!



Vhe are - Dawnie & Steph Aspiring Spice Girls, Princess & Queen of the Typos, Two Top Investigators (and, quite obviously) Skinny pigs and Photobuckeneers.

Oh yeah.



Oh wowee. That was a nice little dumplin of b.s! Or like, interpretive dance in the form of words on a computer screen being blasted across all of the world to make some crazy dog lady drinking tea smile. Or, someone wearing very sexy cowboy boots in a very Salty Lake city grin. Or, it may even be possibly that someone in a very Ily-nnoying state of mind may be reading this. In which case, if you've recovered from the little workout earlier, you'd know I ♥ my sport, particularly the one I'm coordinated at, LJ & PV. Because the others are fun mostly for the laughs I get directed at me when I fall on my sweet little toushe. Although they may not be laughing with me. Hmm.

I'm a Turnip. I atually cooked some the other day, and heard their little plot-bunnies goig up in smoke with a guilty little voice wailing in my mind *cough* But I adore my SPEWlings more than anything, and I love the PIBETA gang more than they know. ♥

Summary:

"Love is unexplainable. There are no words for it. You can’t express why you feel so. It just happens," James said. "“Don’t you think that if I had the choice I would have chosen to love someone who didn’t hate me in return?”

“No,” Sirius said simply.

“You’re right.” James said, sighing. “I’m so screwed up, Padfoot.”

The drama-filled romantic tale of Lily and James's mysterious but unfortunate tale. It started with love and ended with death. It makes you wonder about the things they tried to live for. Pre-HBP

hey there! WOW! i started reading this ages ago, but i stopped because frankly i thought it was too long. then i reaslised that the CHAPTERS weren't long at all. it makes it easier to read and then they're really suspensful. the best part id that i dont have to wait for you to updat! all 60 chapters are fnished! for a moemtn there i was thinking Voldie had come back from Harry's time, the way he was talkin about how the mum needn't have died. was that a thought at any time you were reading it? 10/10 for the whole story!!!

Secret Lily, having seen the numbers of reviews already, I could alreadys ee this has bene a wlel loved story. Much like a book that's dog eared and coffee stained form over-reading. I say this because it's one of my favourite stories, and i thought I'd try and read it all over again. It was a joy to read the first time, so let's see if it's better to savour the second time!

I'm a little tentativ eot be critising your work, but i thought Lily referring to Dumbledore as "the man" was a little odd, seeing as she always seems to have the uttermost respect for her superiors. Also, The bird nuzzled it’s head that seemed a little off, I'm not sure, but is it's a contraction of it is?

Thats all!

I can deffinetly understand James' infatuation with her, it's amazng how you've inducted some actual and real feelings into your story. Although, my little crush didn't last for all of 7 years, it still felt the way you described James'.

I thought it was so sweet of Viktor to step forward and tell her not to sacrifice her memories! I’m just a rarepair shipper >.> But I thought it was incredibly cute and very gallant.

"I've got a talent, as well. I can look into people's souls and see what sort of person they are. I offer it to you in place of Ginny's memories." I was like, NO! Not the talent! To sacrifice something so special made me grin. I’m hopeless when it comes to shipping. I’ll jump aboard if they so much as brush hands. I’m really loving this character.

She wanted to humiliate him. I think this is a very powerful attribute to be giving a goddess, especially Gefinn, because to me she seems like a strong, not necessarily haughty but self assured goddess. I think you’ve portrayed that tendency very well, here :).

Gefinn's eyes glittered menacingly for a moment, but the outrage Ginny expected did not materialise. I’m in heart with this line. It’s so godly, and reminds me of all the fuss the Greek gods kick up up there in Olympus with all the love affairs. Heh.

Just with the formatting, though, you may want to remove < br > tags, which make it space oddly. So do the < p > tags. I found it distracting and made the chapter look a lot longer and a little tiresome, having to scroll all the time. It’s nothing huge, it just put me off a little. So, SQUEE I have more of this to read! 10 chapters left!

Hmm.. have you ever heard the term love is blind, sensless and tasteless? The blind and sensless thing i get, but tasteless? I guess Harry really is good then! LOL i giggled a bit on that, having just had an episode myself. This is really original, one of my ranodm picl and chooses, mopstly becasue of your screen name, but then i discovered you had a story... yadda uadda. Oh, and have you read Eragon and Eldest? That's why i was so interested in your name =-) oh, and this story? Tops! I think you should seriously sonsider the "belle" charcter, she sounds just lik a average chick, not one with extreme brian power like Luna...well...maybe not Luna... ~Steph* 10

Date: 01/08/07 Title: Chapter 6: Smoldering

And so enters the mind of reader two years later. From remembering the previous read back in may of 2005, and now in January of 2007 it doesn’t seem all that long ago, but seems very long ago when I look at it as nearly two years.

Apart from the rambles that crossed my mind, I noticed, amongst anything, the language and the words that you use. I think that while a younger reader may not have really noticed the way different words can perceive different emotions, I realise now that in the [edited?] versions, it’s a lot more detailed to me, and conveys a lot more to me than a story of Remus falling in love. It shows us a bold, new character with a vivacious personality. She’s intelligent, witty and she withholds her emotions quote well – a fatal trait.

I like the interaction between the two characters. I love how vulnerable Remus is to her at the start, but as the chapters progress how he gets to know her and her attitudes. Though recently, he had acknowledged that he only had begun to scratch the exterior of her multifaceted persona. I like that she has mood swings and that she’s an irritable chain-smoker with a failed relationship. I like her radical boots and her gothic kitchen. I just love the depth that Isabelle has compared to most OC’s, and seeing her interact with Richard in this chapter made me realise that this story – this chapter in my mind especially as I don’t think I got further last time – could stand by itself with such a wonderful plot.

I find that the issues that you include in this chapter especially are less scandalous this time round. Then again, it could very well be because the chats have corrupted my innocent young mind, but it could also be that you’ve handled them in a very adult manner, with the wordiness that tells all and betrays nothing. Personally, I prefer to compliment you rather than admit you’ve seduced me >.>.

Author's Response: \'Personally, I prefer to compliment you rather than admit you’ve seduced me.\'

How do you expect to respond to this more than awesome review without tissues by my side? I\'m so happy that Isabelle comes off as a three-dimensional character, who\'s real and like you and me. That this story is not considered just a story of Remus falling in love or just introducing him to an OC and hooking him up. Thank you for the wonderfully kind words and this lovely review!

::hugs::

I don't like Richard. I, um, just don't. That's about the significance of this short review, really. He sounds like a right royal bee. I think he's being quite cocky, writing in Russian. He's clinging to those last strains, i think. I'm [hoping] that he's realised Isabelle is gone to him. But in any case, he seems like a common prick that anyone would meet on the streets.

...it dawned upon her that the older her brother became in the photographs, the less his smile seemed to reach to his eyes. This is such a sad and poignant line to include. I think that it gives Remus' character a lot of strength in contrast. I know you were trying to give us a little more insight into Patryk's situation, but I like to twist it and make it all about Remus >.>

In any case, though, I've reached the end of what there is available to read and I want more periwinkle and peach robes. Please. And Remus dinners and pea soup, because pea soup is most definitely splendid!

Author's Response: As I previously said in response to someone, that\'s a general consensus about Richard. I believe the realizations go both ways, dear, and it will come. Don\'t worry; I have plans.

That\'s a very interesting perspective you have given that line, and I suppose it can apply to either of the two. Very good assumption, indeed.

Yes, there will be more to come, hun! Thank you for taking the time to review. I\'m happy that you have rediscovered this story. = )

 
Reviewer: Lurid Signed
Date: 01/08/07 Title: Chapter 7: Nocturnal Revelations

Oh yeah, baby, this is the chapter! I loved the description in this one. I think you open to it wonderfully in the summary, too. It was so memorable, the blistering image of her skin, that it drew me back through the chapters. Not that grinning about blistering skin and wanting to go back and rave about the realistic image in my head is really all that gross, or anything.

Claustrophobia, paranoia, and schizophrenia were tittering on the edge of Remus’s sanity and all at once, they surfaced. I am in adoration with this particular description of his mind, especially after the werewolf!remus came out and started attacking his mind. It works well with the meeting – for lack of better word – that you had between the two of them. I like the focus of this chapter. A lot. My choppy sentences betray my greed for another chapter just.like.this.one.

The transition from her insomnia to her being in the flaming tent - Isabelle tossed and turned, sweat surfacing through her pores and heat inflaming her skin. She felt as if she was being char broiled, and the person doing so was using a pair of tongs to flip her over. - is a little choppy, and it took me a little while to realise “oh wait, she’s burning alive after not remembering falling asleep”. But I loved the description of her burning alive >.> Again, not sadistic in any way, just in love with your description. I just… I love the metaphors and the intense feeling that in it. I can almost feel myself burning. So, maybe that second chapter isn’t a good idea?

Just kidding. More. More. More! You’ve made me into an enraged beast looking for more rare-pairs, specifically Isabelle, because I’m in love with her sarcasm and attitude and… boots.

Author's Response: You know, I believe my readers have made this chapter into one of my favorites, though it competes with its predecessor and follower. I\'ll agree that the transition was particularly rough, but when I was editing, I was debating if I should put a break in there. Maybe I should then.

LOL, you sound like a certain beta of mine . . . Anyway, I hope to have another chapter out in another week or so. Thank you for taking the time to review!

After seing some of the reviews, I'm a little confused. I suppose you took out eh "firesex" as one reader put it? Either way, i thoguth ti was very, very well written. For someone who never learnt grammer, there's close to no mistakes. Good story.

 

Summary: It's the summer between Harry's 5th and 6th year and he is not dealing with the loss of Sirius. Perhaps all he needs is a little push from beyond the veil.

And Fate Be.... by Seren
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 22]

Summary: "No one stops to consider for a moment why I'm so dependent on those books of mine, why I have so many. I am different. I do not prattle, I do not gossip, I do not twirl my hair and flutter my lashes. Clothing is meant to cover my nakedness, not flaunt my body. I am not covered in cosmetics, nor do I read the silly rags that the girls in my dorm read. I seek knowledge, and truth. I want permission to be myself. I want to walk down the halls of my school, of my world, without hearing the half-whispered remarks about me. I want to sit with my friends, and know that they appreciate my company, and not the fact that I can revise their homework. I want to live." A moment in Hermione's life, where she contemplates her past, present, and future.

I think that most people have experienced this feeling if they want to sti back and think about it deeply enough. I think that that's what makes those select few that have sat back so different - they look at these things. I think you've expressed Hermione's personality here quite well. I can really tell you the significance I find within it relating to myself because that would be awkward, but know that it is indeed there.

Hi, i like the first chapter (read the others on the site you mentioned) hate to be the bearer of bad news but as much as i love Sirius, the way you brought him back...it wasnt right. like that Black C@t person said it wasn't supposed to happen. I dont agree with them saying he's annoying (i love Sirius to bits) but yeah. The whole Green-Flame-Thing was a bit strange! by the way constructive critisism never hurt any one :)
