*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: “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.
OK figured it out =) it was ' by OWL post' in the first chapter. OWL refers to Ordinary Wizarding Level, not 'owl' as in the bird... anything original to the magical world thanks to JKR is capitalized, think about it.. animals, spells, odd objects. It shoud be Dementors and Owl Post. Sorry, i just had to nit pick, It's just so 8unfair sometime how thye pick up the mallest little things sometimes! ~10 sorry there wasn't mush to rave about this chapter ... this story is on my favourtie for a while now!
LOL okay! This is just the angle in need for my SBFC edition. It will have nothing to do with this, of course (as you'll see) but it has inspired me ;) The thing I was desperatly trying to remember..again was when you (Chapter 1) wrote Mr. Weasley puffing and running towards Harry and talking at the same time, she doesdn't describe what they're doing in () she writes what they say- puffed mr Weasley- they continues what they say. =) hope you don't hate me for it! ~10*
OMG!! She's his godmother! I think JKR said Harry wasn't ging to have a godmother, but WHO CARES! MIRIAM IS HIS GODMOTHER! For some reason I'm so excited! Aww! When she hugged his in a 'maternal' way i was like ::Aww!:: It's like having another Mum! Kudos! ~10*
Hey! Dammit, Sirius should only be a whisper away from ME! I was SO expecting Sirius to be able to got to the Ball. I mean, who can keep Sirius away from a beautiful person and a chance to snog such a beautiful person. LOL snog is such a funny word, me being an Aussie and all =P ~10*
Author's Response: Okay, I'm going to try to respond to all at once, hehe...First of all, many thanks for the coding tip; I thought something looked funny, but I've never done this before, so I figured I'd play it by the books. Next, I've got to say, you're excitement is making me excited, and that's terrific! I don't think it could ever get old knowing that someone is emjoying your work. Also, nit-picking is appreciated; you never know what someone might pick up that you've missed, so don't stop! You're absolutely right about the Owl Post, but just trying to follow the books, I don't think dementors are capitalized, but I could be mistaken. I will check on that though, thanks. And I'm really glad you liked the godmother twist...that's the beauty of an alternate reality fanfiction; it's an alternate reality, so (almost) anything goes! And darling, please...you should have a bit more faith in Sirius...after all, it's like you said...what's a broken leg between beautiful people, right? Bwahahaha. Stay tuned for more chapters, I'd love to hear what you think! P.S. I'll fight you for him.
Author's Response: P.P.S I just made the coding changes to the chapter I have waiting in the queue right now, so thanks again for the tip!
::Sigh:: havign the same problems as you, except my chapters 7-12 are good to go, but *mimicks Mod* I do not have the right spacing between my paragraphs.* Sorry for ragging on you, and thanks for tkaing the time to write such an honest, lengthy reply! I'll be sure to do the same to you, If you'de check out my baby, Malicious Intentions....;-) Completely voluntary, of course. It's not like you have a broiken like like our dear Sirius to stop you... oh wait...it didn't stop him. Now you have no excuse!! ~Steph* PS- Bring it on! ::straps on head gear::
YAY! First in, best dressed! Well, actually Miriam is best dressed, loved the sound of that dress, and she's sounds gorgeous. Lil seemed so proud of herself, +Chalks one up for Lily+ anyway, I couldn't see and mistakes in that chappie, next time i read It i might pick up on some minor errors, but i doubt it. I know how much trouble I g to to get my story submitted, so kudos for getting it Validated TWICE! Tis all from me at the moment, till next time! ~Steph* ~10*
Rated: [Reviews - ]
I know how hard it is to get reviews, (my story Malicious Intention, General fics, maybe you could check it out?). this story is really good. I'm surprised they didn't use Priori Incantatem on the wands. Then they would have found out Malfoy used the curse aswell. Pity they don't have those people who can tell what time you were attacked. ='( you'll be find Hermy! Keep your head up! 10
Author's Response: the reason they can't use priri incantem is because it's really hard to trace....you'll find out why these things were overlooked later, at how things were shifted wrongly......it's devious, meniachal, and very smart on the part of a character that comes up with the attack......muahahahahahahahahaha
Why I'm posting on here:A) because I'm too lazy to write you an email =D and B) because you'll get to it faster this way, and You'll get all excited when you get the email saying you've got another review! Crafty, no? anyway thankyou so much for mentioning me in the summary for your story! *finally recognised!* anyway the next chapter sounds like a good one, and i would be happy to beta it for you, god knows I've been rejected so many time for all sorts of things i know pretty much every rule in the book! =-) Contact me please!
Author's Response: if i ever get to typing it, ill email it to u so u can get a sneak peek.....i'll be happy to do the same for you, id love to see chapters before other people do!!
heheh nice lil laugh you got going there! *joins in* mwahahahahah...doesn't get it. Dunno if Priori Incantatem is hard to chase but, coz all you gotta do is put your wand to the accused. Poor Hermione tho. She would have been convicted anyway because she did use Crucio on Malfoy =-(
Sorry i didn't review on ther other chapter. So pleased this new ones up. So far there's been no liuck for me, bith my chapters were rejected.
Was the story supposed to be in italics? I would have been a good effect at the start, but didn't really make sense for the rest of the chapter coz it wasn't a mempro or flashback or added on little bit at the end =-( oh well, good luck writing the next chappie!
Author's Response: it's all in italics because it's still in the pass. i have abouty one more chapter before it gets to the present, and thats when it gets good!!! ya, and in chapter 4 hermione is told that it's the charge for using it against malfoy that is getting her in trouble!! molly has dropped any charges, so it's all the malfoy's and again, you'll find out that there's a reason behind the lack of responsibility in the ministry on rooting the spell. the next chapter will be the trail, so hold on, were almost there!! after the next chapter, the ones following should get longer, but i'm not sure!!
Hey, Hello, Howdy and how do you do?!? Well, i see you're bustinf for reviews, so I hope mine is the icing on the cake that lets you post more up for me to read? Well, since there's nothing more to report except new chapters for Malcious, (chapter 9 accepted) and theres no new chapters here =( I re-read it, and i wad wondering... did you fix up the formatting? It looked a lot more orgnsided this time =) oh, and in the way of books, I cried when Bailey died in the book, i havent seen the movie, but I recommend Eragon and Eldest by Chris Paolini, a new favourite to mine, he was 15 when he wrote Eragon! It's very Lord of the Rings-ish and a small dose of Harry in there, so i guarantee you'll enjoy! well, christine, TTYL! (intended) Steph*
Summary: A Draco / Hermione love poem on how he feels about her. This was requested by 'nightgoddess'. Personally speaking I don't go for this type of pairing. But I tried to keep it canon. ^_^ Feel free to use it, or excerpts of it, on your fic.
Thankyou so much for reviewing my story, i figured since you were nice enough i would check yours out and review because u don't seem to have any reviews as of yet!
I would condier using it, but I'm already a big fan of Hilary Duff and some of her songs are really fitting for my story (check them out in Chapter 4) but i have another idea, if you could please email me and i'll state my request there! ;) using all that technical stuff now =-D
Author's Response: *L* I don't mind ... maybe because I write for myself ^_^ ... never really cared if people does not like it (although its nice to know people read). I like it better if my fic has massive 'read' counts. My epic fic have plenty of reads but little review -- the sorting song one got 5 reviews but just a few reads ... I'm a lot happier with my epic one ^_^ ... Chapter 4? What about 2?
Summary: A collection of Sorting Hat Songs that I wrote.
To writers, feel free to use it for your fics.
Hey Meil! LOL I finally got around to sumbitting yet anoter chapter.. (7) and it got rejectd, so i thought I'd just stop by and say I mentioned you in y story as having written the song you recommended, Sorting Song3. Keep up the good work, mate, and look out for any random one-shots in my direction! =-
) heheheh Bet you feel good about not having to go back to school, aye? ~Steph*
Author's Response: I know what you mean. This site is quite strict in terms of standards. Really pushes you to improve grammatically-speaking.
school? Ahhhh!!! too many readings and papers and projects. *pout* But that's life...
Thanks for telling me ^_^ Good luck in re-submitting it. (getting a beta from the forums does help. It did for me ^_^)
Do you write songs or anything? ARe you in a band? I thought your lyrics caught exactly what was going on, i really like them. I hope this reviwe encourages you to write more. If you'de like to return the favour, please check out my story and leave a review =-)
Author's Response: Nope ... am actually an ex-cheerleader (Junior High and partial HS days) thus rhyming is easy, since I used to write cheers on the spot. It does encourage me. Of couse I'd love to return the favour ... as long as the fic is not novel length ... although I truly love to read these types of stories ... I just find it takes too much time and I can't afford to get too distracted from my required readings *sigh* it's just that everything seems like a great read (except for those articles and textbooks I have to contend with)
Summary: ‘I hate you’ she would say, ‘I can’t stop thinking about you, and I blame you, obviously, for that. I’m not sane anymore; I can’t breathe freely thanks to you. What have you done to me? Why am I so obsessed with what I am not to have? With someone that, clearly, doesn’t feel anything close to this…this misery?’ One-Shot
Very good, but something is missing...its nothing really, but you know that feeling you get when you meet Malfoy is the corridor? How he 'drawls' and says 'malovently' or whatever it it? being nice just isn't his personality, and really i don't think someone like Ginny would ver be attracted to him, but Hey? Thats what Fanfiction is for! I thought the whole dance was a good idea, but i never picked Dean to be the one to cheat on Ginny! If you'd like to return the favour or leave a nasty little note on my story, Malicious Intentions, by all means do so! ~Steph
Regulus means 'Little King' he was named after the constellation at the heart of Leo. This is his story. (ONE-SHOT)
*stares with awe* wow, a Vader review! You've got some good friends in high places! I didnt think it was wordled awkwardly at all... that could have been because i read the edited version! *L* Anyway, i think you really got into the characters mind, good stuff mate. You continue to improve!
Author's Response: Yes Vader's one of the more amazing poets in this site. This one was actually a response to a poetry challenge he issued. 'Life Story of a Minor HP Character'.
You're actually reading the edited version. I fixed it due to all those suggestions I got ^_^ especially from Vader. I'm mostly improving due to all the help I've gotten from reviewers, betas and even mods ^_^ Those rejection notice does give good advice. The fact that they're so strict here is a blessing for me ^_^.
I'm so sorry, i missed that little point before. I think i remember reading that the "A" form RAB was part of the same constellation? Also is Bellatrix's mother name also a constellation?
Your mind's as good as JKR's own, and i can give no higher compliment that that. This is an excellent way to spend my holidays, if i do say so myself!
I also loved how it went through the stages, I'm so sorry i didnt mention all this before, i was a little star struck. :$ I loved How Regulus finally stood up for himself, in my opinion, no Black is a weakling, even Bellatrix. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next!
Author's Response: I heard that too ... was that Aktartus or something? Bella's mum ... *sheepish smile* nope ... I didn't think it was necessary and was too lazy to do the research *L*
I actually wrote this before HBP ... just thought that a name that stands for 'Little King' and a star located at the heart of Leo ... he ought to be improtant and that maybe he's braver than Sirius gave him credit for. ^_^ *lol* I give too much emphasis on names.
Summary: Parvati makes a love potion, but who is she planning on giving it to? Hermione finds out, but will it be too late? Please read and review, I like to hear how I'm doing!
Very well written, i love Ha/Hr ships! I hate, detest, loathe, and wish to vanquish Draco/Hermione ships, however so I'm glad this stories available to read =-D. if you'de like to return the favour my story Malicious Intentions is out and needs some reviews =-) I'll be looking out ofr the next chapter!
Hi! It's steph again, sorry it took so long to get my arse into gear! I've been writintg LOTS and LOTS of chapters, and am happy to see you have been too! Chapter 6 just got accepted so, yeah if you'd like, check it out!
This chapter really moved me. I love H/H rmances, but can't help feeling sory for Ron when Harry tells him he revealed his secret to Mione FIRST. poor guy! 10+
Aww! How great would it be if Harry had true feelings for Mione? Come to think of it, it wold be great isf i had a guy with true feelings for ME..~Lurid*
PS another awesome chapter!
