*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!

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. ♥

Currently working on my WIP Malicious Intentions and fighting the urge to bite my fingernails. Maybe I’ll see you around some time, eh?
Summary: While Ginny tries to get Harry to notice her and Hermione tries to get Ron to admit he's noticed her, Ginny and Hermione come across a very special place at Hogwarts. Not just anyone can get into the Caves of Concealment, for within lie some of the most powerful items in the wizarding world. Can Ginny and Hermione discover the secrets of the caves while at the same time getting their favorite guys to notice them? Well, the final chapter is up! I hope you all enjoy it!!!! Please remember to read and review and tell me what you think :) The sequel to this story is called Harry Potter and The Year of the Dragon.
Okay, this is as far as i got, G2g2 Dinner....damn timezones! Bugger! So aussie! =-)Fab as always, as soon as I'm finished I'll go back n review every chapter!!!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for checking out my fics! I'm glad you're enjoying CoC, the first chapter of the sequel is also up, when you're done!
Summary: 6-year-old Sirius Black just wouldn’t listen; he snuck into the family cellar despite being forbiddened to do so... A broken artifact brought about a chain of events that’ll bring us to a different world. Although most of the events stayed the same, his absence brought about some minor changes - now Sirius is in Harry’s time.
This is a story that will reveal what will happen if the most mischievous of the Marauders joins forces with the ever-creative Weasley Twins. This is an epic tale that will reveal the mysterious myths and history of the Most Noble and Ancient House of Blacks. Be mystified, and roll over with laughter, as Sirius bumbled his way through his 1st year at Hogwarts in this alternate tale of the HP tradition.
Hello, hello again! 'Tis Christmas Day, 1:00am, to be precise. My Dad thinks it's funny to tormet me a with KING SIZE Green prawn head that he had for dinner. Ever since I was a little girl I've been scared of those things, and all because of his stupid Christams Antics! Hehe Wolfsbane Potion "Pity Sugar makes it useles" Sirius has enough Suger in his that it woudn't do anythign anyway!
Merry Christmas, Miel! I get prezzies in about 8-9 hours! Woot!!!-Steph
You've got a point there. *lol* Sirius does seem to be on a constant sugar-high. *lol*
Merry Christmas! I already opened mine ^_^. So satisfying to rip those wrappers and have ribbons flying about :)
Aww. I only got up to Snape, but thought I'd leave a review before i forgot different things.
"So long, farewell. I need to say adieu. Adieu to you and you and you and you..." I lub The sound of music. Good stuff. *thumbs up*
Eeewww Dolores Umbridge/Pettigrew. Yueach. Oh wait, though... err... no one knows Pettigrew's alive at this point. Huh. *stumped* unless it's not Umbridge...
Sorry Really must. Conversation between Peter and Remus- Voldermort. Sorry. I just have this obsession with people spelling the main charatcers names wrong. Myself included. I feel so ashamed for my tedious Typos!
OOh, and one more thing. I never quite worked out why the dialogue is on Italics. Prolly shouldna asked before now huh?
I've submitted another story to MN! It's called The Potters and the Blacks; a Family Torn Apart and i wrote it when iw as 11! Wowsa. I only foudn it after 4 years the other week! oooh *jumps up and down* I'd like a copy of book 7. ch. 1 pleeeeeeeeease.-Steph. LOL. And this wasn't even for the whole chapter. (",)
Oh this is an AU - no Sirius around thus Petey got away scott-free and is now 'ugh' Deputy Minister. *snicker* and you thought the Ministry under sudge is bad enough *lol*
The italics? *lol* When I started ... I had a hard time with switching tenses - so, the genius that I am figured this system out. -- non-italicised words ought to be in past tense *lol* -- Now, I can handle the tenses better, but since I started off with that style - I had to continue doing that.
I'll be sure to check that as soon as I finish beta-reading some chapters.
*lol* I'll sent it to you (well ... as soon as I can find where I buried that file *L* It's probably burried somewhere with the partially done chapter of this story that I've also been neglecting ^_^)
I hope you don't mind, but I've used a piece of your review in my summary for Malicous Intentions, basically promoting the story, and letting people know just what the great author's are reading!
Just tell me if you don't want your quote on there, I'll take it down instantly if you want =)-Steph
I LuB this story, I am SO glad i ead it. Oh, and Nataniels wand, noted.... but you see i tink you might have made a time error/ harry will be 7, Hermione 8 and Ron, 8 depending on what time of the year it is, and Sirius is only 6. Nicholas Flamel died some time between their first year, and their sixth year, i should think. Nicolas and Perenelle visited Nathaniel just befroe they too died, and Nathaniel would still be im possession of his wand it this time. But, taking into considereration, this si the statr of a wonderful fic. I'm off to read more, and will reveiw at the end. Kudos!
Author's Response: *wince* canon error? I'll have to re-check those date lines.
Whoops I guess I'm not that good in trasitions and managed to confuse you on that other story *lol* C.A. did pointed out some problems in the transitions. Nathaniel was supposed to be an artist during the Renaissance era. This story takes place in a more modern era - thus he's long dead. (but he'll make an appearance since I originally created him in this story).
Transitions in time frame is definitely something that I need to work on ^_^.
Wow, could that have takne any longer? Only 10 chapter to go! LOL I love the idea of a Permanent Sticking Charm. I'm with Sirius. I love the Kelpies way of thinking "i lub to drown people" LOLaaaaaaahhh Christmas Eve. This is bascially a rejoicing review: i finished one of you chapters, and its Christmas Eve! T-minus 9 hours, 21 minutes and 27 seconds! Woot!
Author's Response: (Drowning ... and Permanent Sticking Charms) @_@ You're one scary gal *lol*
Merry Christmas! Be warned a couple of those chapters are REALLY looong. (I don't exagerate on this) *lol* I wanted to try making long one ... and it's harder than I thought, ^_^ but I did it ^_^
"Mudbloods, half breeds, and Weasley trash" Covered all bases there, Imp. I don't get how Sirius could be swayed so easily. Like, didn't he hate Malfoy? *Confused* I just thought (even though Sirius is open to pranking anyone, anytime) that he wouldn't have done it in plain view of Harry, Ron and Miss-know-it-all knowing they ddin't feel the same way.
*Sigh* My computer had died... again. I swear, if they take 3 months to fix it again, *shakes fist* This is the third time it's gone to silicon heaven... come to think of it, yours was the last review i ever wrote before it died. *glares at Sirius*-Luridly, Steph
I don’t know why but I can’t find your new story that you mentioned. Maybe my laptop needs a good shake *lol*
"Mix his blood with a kelpie he attempted A bride which the family rejected" *giggles* eww! That's worse that the Umbridge/Peter ship. *rolls on ground with tears of laughter in eyes*
Learn more about Nathaniel Black, we did indeed. I find Aris interesting, i love the rhyming. I think when rhyming, certain things become very ironic when you read them again, you can cover your tracks.
*guawff* Look! It is a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's the Amazing, flying Pest Percy!*squishes with toe*
You wonder who’s truly the bigger pest: The Pranksters? or The Prefect? *lol*
"Tenebrus" *nods* yup, got that one, although.. i thoguht "it" was a guy... something about a whole heard? *eyebrows knit*Tee-hee, i loved the Sirius prank. Seemed a little like "Squigly wiggly, jigery pokery" in CoS.... "Muggle Beheading Device" classic.
Vell, ve haff to go, toodles!-Steph
I’ll have to look up that CoS squiggly thing *lol* I can’t remember that :)

OKay sorry to burst your bubble.. but should 't Malfy have said why sin't his MOTHER taking him if he hates muggles? And Voldemort's wand is made of yez, not beechwood. Ollivander says so in PS/SS sorry. =-) thanks for the reviews, mate!
Author's Response: I can't remember every little detail. I try but I can't and Malfoy said that because he believes fathers are dominate figuares and should take care of their kids muggle or not.
**Yew** im so sorry for my bad spelling. swear its this damn keyboard! djghklaJHFJIFSAN ::BASHES KEYBOARD::
Dare i say it? Yeah.. aww! Poor Tommy! Lol I love the names u came up with, and i think its halriousm (my word of the day) when u read pre-HBP stories and look at what people belive to be canon. lol Kudos mate!
Author's Response: It isn't canon anymore so I don't care but if it was that would be creepy that me and Rowling tyhink the exact same way.
Hey, i liked the story about Pyhthias past, really gave you some back round info and shows you that teachers ARE human. I thought some of the dialogue was a touch OOC for a stereotypical teacher, but ah well, what would I know? I've only got 6 chapters up, wheras you've got 8! You also spelt Parsletongue wrong repeatedly, lucky they didn't pick you up on that, and defense against the dark arts should be Capitalized, it being a Poper Noun.
I really enjoy this emotional side to Tom, a sharp contrast to the rude stuck up kid in HBP, i must admit. Well done, Jas! Keep up the good work, and chapter 9 will be up before you can say Waddiwasi! ~Steph*~10*
Hey there Jas! Sorry i neglected to review, but I've ben busy with Malicious Intentions, chapter 6 is up, and chapter 10 is on my computer! I see what you mean by the fact he was slowly getting evil.. i probably would be too if i lived with an....IT.. like that! ~Lurid*
Hey again! Oh, little Ruth is so cute! ...Is she a witch/ *thumps self on head* of course she is... she understands Voldemort. You're doing agreat job, keep it up! *zips to next chapter*
lol i get what u mean, but no chapter is a waste: we learnt the womans name! Gez, i hope she kills that it. ttly, its sleep time for me...~Lurid*
I know what you mean when you say waiting for acceptance! I had my chapter 2 in the line for about 2 weeks (no joke) and then it gets rejected! As for the other first chapter and 3rd chapter...it would be great if you returned the favour and reviewed! Oh, poor Tommy! He'd probably kill me if he ever heard me calling him that! I got the hissing/gurgling thing, but why don't you say something about his eyes? are they normal, or are they just a tinge strange? i love when people tlak about his eyes, and can't wait to see then on GoF!!! 10/10- not bad aye?

Hi! I know how hard it is to get reviews, so i'm giving me 'fine tuned adivice' to everyone i think might be kind enough to review my story, LOLZ =-) It's a really great story. I love how in depth Harry was, and how In-character Ron was, suspicious lil blighter he is! I'll give it a ten, and I'll keep my eye on it for the next chapter, (i'm adding u ti my favs list just to make sure) hope to see a review with your name on it! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you very much for reviewing. This is my first stab at HP fanfic so i was very nervous, thankyou for your kind thoughts. I'll remember to check your's out when I've got a bit of time to give it proper attention. Shouldn't be long til next chapter so stay tuned!
Summary: “You were the first thing they took from me,” whispered Sirius. “My only happy memory. I haven’t thought of you in fourteen years.”
“And I’ve had to think about you everyday. For fourteen years,” said Miriam, darkly. Her voice trembled. “I win.”
Miriam Daniels had lost everything she’d ever loved the day Sirius Black was sentenced to a life in Azkaban. Now, years later, she needs to find the strength to accept a past drastically different from the one that she had just begun to acknowledge as truth. Will the most celebrated Healer in England be able to nurse back to health a broken heart and shattered dreams? Or will a secret kept locked away for fourteen years drive Miriam even further away from the man who once adored her?
A/N: A/R with aspects of MWPP-era-ness! I hope you like it!
NEW CHAPTER! I really hope you enjoy it.
This story is really intruging! I know exactly what a nice long review does for the self-esteem, so here goes: I'm not sure exactly when this is set, I'm guessing (just from reading the Hearing and when Harry said Oliver had just retired from Quidditch Captain at Hogwarts) that this is an alternate ending to Harry's Wizengamot Hearing? (sorry, not a fabulous speller =-/ ) Either way, seeing Sirius alive is any girls dream, so well done! On to the next Chapter!! ~10
Okay.. now I'm kinda thinking its between 5th year and 6th year.. but Sirius would bedead by then! That was just the Pre-HBP warning you put on it =S uh.. oh yeah. I'm really sorry (something lukewarm coming up) but the tags you put in < p > you don't need to, and when u do it causes weird spacing that DOES make it more suspensful having to scroll down for that little tad of a second, but it's also a little annoying =( sorry. Also some stuff is spelt wrong, and there's something about the first chapter I can't quite remember...argh later. As for the rest of the writing, I'm glad you updated, coz soon there will be another chapter for me to read! To chapter 3! ~10*
