*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. ♥

hey there! a really great story! man, do i knowhow hard it is to get reviews! ive had 16 ppl read my story, and 1 person review it! this is a really well structured piece, and i look forward to reading chapter 2! [PS if you'd like to return the favour...look me up!:)]

Author's Response: Thank u for reading and REVIEWING *ahem* lol j/k review at your leisure, people...i'll be sure to check out your story and drop a line or two about it! Thanks for such a complimentary review, i'm blushing lol

 

Summary: As Andrea Benning starts her fifth year at Hogwarts alongside The Trio, she has her own daily things to deal with, like a life-altering secret, studying, orchestrating Operation Sophie-Roderick Romance and a crush of her own. When one attends Hogwarts, one can hardly expect things to go as planned.





Fred and George Weasley are really only returning to Hogwarts for the priceless market research, but will there be time for other things as well?





As friendships and romances develop, the students at Hogwarts will also have to deal with the second rise of the evil Lord Voldemort and the terrible toad of a Defense professor - Umbridge.

Although JK stole all of the original text from me, I must let you know that this is the stuff she cut out. Think along the lines of Lord of the Rings Extended editions...this fic is like the stuff on the extra discs and the deleted scenes, maybe some alternate endings...I don’t know. I haven’t decided whether or not Sirius will die in my version...Plenty of time to decide that. Now, everyone open your books to pages 182 and 183, for that is where our tale begins... You’re so crazy, yo?

she didn’t only want to succeed, she wanted to squash any and all competition while she did it. lol, she has to have her cake and eat it, doesn’t she, the little nerd? I don’t care. I already hearts her. And you. *glomps love* And... oh my… I’m giggling at this character when she talks about Hermione. Giggles all around.

she had now planned Sophie’s future marriage to Roderick, as well as the names of all their children and was getting started on how each of their careers would comply with their familial obligations. I love these girls. They totally sound like someone I know. I mean, my child shall be called… um… Marie. Yes. Marie. But I will never love her, nor this story as much as her namesake and it’s author. *zooms in a squishes you*

So, I welcome you to the highly crack filled, totally irrelevant reviews. In which I may or may not try and steal George away from Andrea. Dude. You know I’ll win.

Why don’t you ask yourself whether or not you think I own Harry Potter, I think you’ll be able to come up with the correct answer… So now I totally need to go look at the reviews, hoping that someone would have made a stupid comment. ZOMG. They didn’t. They was so totally bait for me to take, and I TOOK IT. *pout*

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast…I simply couldn’t resist mate… omg MARIE said Mate! Either you’re Australian, or you’re a half-drunk version of Johnny Depp. And your moustache just twitched when you said that. Erm. Maybe I should start reviewing the story now >.>

“Woah there Potter,” she responded. Okay now, we totally know who’ll wear he pants in this relationship. ;-)

So, I think it was about the third chapter that I finally realised that this was AU with Andrea interfearing and the like. And I find your little ‘Dude, I’m too lazy to write out all of the section so go do me a favour and read it yourself’ excerpts. Like, you don’t even believe. And strangely, this works. I especially enjoyed the ease with which you inserted the details about Andrea and Roderick into Angelina’s speech at the same time as giving away his namesake. And Mate, I have sooo many chapters to read >.> I only have so much time and so little crack! *sob*

Thankyou so much for reviewing my story! This is great, and a really big twist to the usually romance fic and other stuff that is SO predicable. Of course Hemione wouldn't attack Mugble-borns. *Stupid* I swear the reason Fudge is so short is he had his head stuck up his arse so long his neck got a permanet crick. Make you laugh? Good. *God Bless my Soul* I reviewed 5 times! *holds up hand* ~ Lurid =-]

Author's Response: dont worry, i like ppl who review a lot. keep reading, but remember im taking a break until summer vacation starts, so it might be a month or so until another update (look under my previous author's responses to other people for info on that)... thanks again!

Oops my bad. This is after i read chapter 5, and came back just to see how everyting looks. I should probably look closer at the other reviews before i state any mistakes, huh? As for changing anything just go into edit/delete section and edit it. It will say your story has been updated, and thats that! Which reminds me, i need to do so myself.. scuse me...

Yes! Very dramatic. Kudos to you... isn't it Crouch that put his son in Azkaban? Or did Fudge and Umbitch have more than just a ...connection eww. Too gross to even think about.

Author's Response: yes, i know. i made a mistake on the whole crouch son thing *hides in shame*... but i am too busy to fix it (however, i manage to find time to answer these reviews... hmmm.. lol). oolala: fudgey-poo and the umbitch (great name, btw)!

WOW!! Second reviewer! Ouch...gaping holes hurt. I'm surprised Dumbles didn't ask why he wanted to come back. That would have been a BIG paradox! Finsihed readin 'The Bargain' SO cool! No doubt this is gonna be just as good!

 

Summary: Told all in the point-of-views of Lily and James. Lily Evans doesn’t have time for guys—between prefect duties, all her homework, and helping her friends with their messy breakups, she barely has time for herself (or so she thinks). And then there’s James Potter—he’s been asking her out every day since they were second years (and been staring at her like an idiot for a lot longer besides). When will she realize that James Potter isn’t joking and that she has feelings for him, too? It's basically the story of what happened to Lily, James, and their friends during their seventh year at Hogwarts (and I have to admit, theres's definitely some romance. Between Lily and James and other people...). WARNING: IF SUICIDE, ALCOHOL ABUSE, OR SELF-INJURY OFFENDS YOU, DON'T READ! IT DOES NOT GO INTO GREAT DETAIL, HENCE THE PG-13, BUT IT CONTAINS ALL OF THIS!!

Hey! I would love to know the mod who accepted this chapter because (not to be picky or anything) but after a character says something like for e.g. 'What do you mean,' Said Lily it should be a lil 's' in said instead of a big one. They're so picky and i'm surprised this FF got thru. As for the whole 'not sad enough' i think it would have been a bit more realistic if you had added some imagery (im a freak when it come to discriptions) like for instance in the GoF JKR says something like 'Harry could see the tears coursing down Cho's cheeks' it shows real emotion, instead of just 'started to cry'. When ever i read stories especially HP i can envision whats happening. Your line 'who looked as if she was about to burst into tears any minute' was good. I see someone with red-rimmed eyes and a snotty lil nose! I'm sorry this review was so long, i just really wanted to let you know some of your mistakes. Try to read the Mods rejections letters carefully. If you put the oh, 5 or so letters together and try and fix every problem then u shuld be fine =-) please feel free tp contct me or leave some nasty reply on my revioew list! =-D

I went into your profile page and clicked on it there aswell as via the featured story link, but can't seem to be able to read it! There's just a blank space, and then the "review" option. =) Let me know if you knwo how to fix my problem, i really want to read this story!

Author's Response: To be perfectly blunt, I haven\'t a clue! Maybe it was just a server glitch...? Retry the featured story link and then try my homepage again. If both of those don\'t work, try emailing the mods to let them know there\'s a problem and if it still doesn\'t work, let me know and I\'ll email it too you. I hope that helps a bit and I\'m sorry that its not working for you. No worries about deleting the review either - if someone else is having trouble too, this may help then too. Good luck and please let me know if you need any more help or when it works. ~ Stormy x

YAY! first-er-third reviewer! Never mind, first for the chapter is always good! I know you wokred really hard on this stroy, it shows! It's really interesting, but I'm wondering what time /era it's set in? If Sirius is in Azkaban that would mean by the time he got out and They were in in Hogwarts They (the trio) would all be years ahead of Harry, Hermy & Ron... Anyway, if you'd like to return the favour, my story Malicious Intentions is being updated, and has a few chapters missing, :( but i'd like a review for the first one at least! =-) good luck with your next chapter!

Author's Response: WooHoo!! I will make sure that i read and leave a review for Malicious Intentions. Oh yeah, this story is set during Harry, Ron, and Hermione's third year. I know it's confusing but it will make sence later. If this helps you at all......Sirius has esaped from Azkaban!!! Thanks for the review! :-) also....i am waiting on my validation e-mail for the third chapter!

So, I decided to check this out after the uber game Kumy made out of this – I know how hard it was for me to create something from prose. But… it looks to me like Kumy really didn’t have any trouble at all, because you provided her with every little bit of information she could possibly have needed. I love the chronological order of it – most people would stumble over their thoughts and get sidetrack to irrelevance, but even Augusta seems to… stay o track even when she’s off track. :).

It wouldn’t do to answer the door with floury hands — you never know who it might be.
I think this is a great example of the shock that people go into – they just... can’t handle things and switch off. Becoming neutral is easier than feeling any pain at all, much easier. She reminds me a lot of Bree from Desperate Housewives. Sorry to cross fandoms, dear, but she strikes me as the same sort of person – very proper, yet very sly underneath. She knows what she’s doing, and I think… the more she does these things, the more so convinces herself that they are, in fact the proper things to do. I love the characterization you’ve given Augusta. It’s… very fitting of the handbag and stuffed hat. I think it represents her old-lady stiffness :).

I put down my cup and saucer carefully to avoid spilling anything on the new Axminster carpet and faced them with as much dignity as I could muster in the circumstances. Again, she’s… a fool. I think she is. I think she needs to open up to people. You’ve created such a frustratingly calm person in this! It makes me… twitchy, lol. But in a totally good way. I love when stories have such an effect on me! The overall tone of this… it’s so serene, like ‘Oh yes, on Monday I went down to the bank and got held up. Thank goodness, I wasn’t ordered to give up my silken gloves – that would have been disastrous. So, in all a splendid day.’ I think you’ve hit her characterization right on target – and I feel so much more for Neville than I did before, lol!

I always felt that Frank was still around with his wand in the hands of his son. This… wow. I think one of the most powerful lines in this. Maybe I’m weird. But I love how this is basically where she starts to crack, and show some emotion… it’s like she’s accepted he’s dead before he’s actually gone. It’s so powerful for me, this meaning, because… it happens. And it’s happening right now, all over the place. People just… give up. On life. On love. On dreams. You know, if Augusta was an upbeat person, then she would have been all chipper and have been like “Oh well, he’ll get better, it’s just a matter of time” but… she’s not. She’s SUCH a disembodied personality in the books, and I feel like that you’ve captured her moods and mannerisms perfectly in this tale, Jan. Perfectly. Usually I wouldn’t class a story as perfect… but I just… I’m in awe with your characterization. A great story. I'd recommend it to a lot of people ;-).
