*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. ♥

The Second War Begins by OhISee

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: Post-OOTP Harry and his friends have much more to worry about than classes and homework. They face the constant threat of Death Eaters and Lord Voldemort as the Second War takes hold. As teenagers, their roles in the war are expected to be minimal. However, Harry soon finds he and his friends must play a larger role than they ever imagined. The story will also involve the beginnings of H/G and R/Hr. Chapter 28 submitted! :)

Hey!!! OMG The half blood Prince was such a shock! To be honest, i thought the start ( The other Minister & Spinners End) was quite boring ::ducks the turnips being thrown at her:: okay.. so boring probably wasn't a good choice of words, possibly....less interesting?

I found when you met Horace Slughorn things started to pick up a tad...(lol "tad") Sluggie...hmm....oh well, since I'm, not IN the Slug Club, the man is a complete idiot! ::turns up nose::

='( honest to god i cried when Dumbles died!!! I rekon that was deffinetly the best part, i went thru so much toilet paper *note to self: remember to ask mum to buy more tissues night before Book 7* there were these massive black streaks down my face. Lol think Fred and George

"Mum thought we'd been duelling"

Hmm.. yes...ahhhh! Dammit! When we finally find the courage to go ahead and make up our own spells JKR comes along and TOTALLY slams our genius creations aside and plants in a new spell! Grr.... "calm yourself, Hagrid" Lol, i think thats off the game...

Hmm... wonder how long it is... lets count it, shall we? 30 lines...I can do better than that! =)

what else to talk about? ah, yes...The pheonix. "A Pheonix shall rise from the ashes and shall be reborn" geez i hope so!!!!

ahh yes...snogging, pashing...erm...(lol Nicole) tonsil hockey (SO not my wording =P) Ahh... Ron and Lavender. That's almost as bad as Pavarti!! Come to think of it... when did Pavarti come into it? She was bored shitless at the ball =S ahh.....Harry and Ginny...at last! So gorgeous imagining Harry goin up and kissing Ginny in the common room! Somehow, i was lost that chapter. How do they always manage to win after they have lost so badly?

0Oo I think JKR needs to realise there's little girls and boys all over the world going, "Mummy? What's a slut?" honestly, i don't really care: i thought it was funny! But you do feel sorry for those little children's parents when their kiddies ask what it means =)Ahh... muist be getting back to last-minute...er...working before school starts TOMORROW!!! AHHH!!! Noo....BTW Lori... This is a long review =) Bwahahaha 60 lines! Your longest review yet.. does my rambeling count as a review? I feel ::speshal::

Author's Response: errr..... yeah..... ;) I'd have to say rambling would not technically count as a review, but anyhoo ... I sent you an email. Go check it out. :)

*jumps in and throws confetti about*

And for you on your birthday dear, something I wrote on the Forums, but never posted. For you on your special day, OhISee-

The Second War Begins by OhISee.

The name derived from the last chapter of OoTP, this sixth year fic blends in beautifully with theories, ideas, hopes and expectations of the long awaited sixth book. You will have found that many sixth year stories would have lost interest to readers. But OhISee’s twenty-seven chapter master piece is an addictive fic, my only fix the new chapter she works so hard to churn out.

Although she may keep readers waiting for up to five months, the response she receives to every new addition to her story is amazing. Reviews pour in from everywhere; from her faithful reviewers, from strugglers who receive that handy email at last, to those who have stopped by and read the entire fic in one sitting, chapter one to chapter twenty-eight, to those who have appeared and fallen in love with the fic, just like those who had told them of this wonderful example of fan fiction.

The story, like many other sixth-year fics, is a substitute for The Half Blood Prince. That’s where the similarities end as far as comparisons go. Reviewers have claimed that they like where the story is going better than the way the Half Blood Prince ended up. They hang onto every cliff-hanger OhISee throws their way, anxiously anticipating the next next-breaking curve she might throw in.

All the chapters are of good, solid quality, but the ones that stand out, and make me feel as a reader would have to be her chapter 2. The Black Estate, referring both to the late Sirius Black’s will, but also for the dark and sad scene she sets for the entire chapter. OhISee’s gift is to make her readers feel the same feelings as Harry, a rare occurrence. In some fan fictions, you see multiple chapters lack in feeling, thought and that special touch, but I can say nothing discouraging about the effort, pride and perseverance OhISee puts into her work.

There’s chapters for all ages there, for all shippings and for all Genres. There’s action, romance, fluff, angst, sadness and grief. There’s so much packed into each chapter, so much suspense. Sometimes so much readers have gone back and read chapters multiple times, just to fully comprehend the situation. There’s so many different things to discover in each of her wonderfully enticing chapters, readers want to absorb all of it as quickly as possible.

My favourite chapter’s would have to be Chapter 20- Hermione’s surprise, which is so beautifully written, so tender and fluffy, yet structure and graceful all at the same time. Not too much fluff, but just enough to make the women reading sigh wistfully and the men reading vow to conform. Her long awaited chapter 27 stunned all with its length, wonderfully winding details and twists, turns and tumbles. Readers were stunned, and then cheered. Lori had truly out done herself with this chapter. Her latest chapter has followed in the footsteps of its predecessors, and had wowed readers, making them hungry for more.

A reader’s eyes sparkles as she writes this review, and she wishes Lori a very Happy Birthday!

Author's Response: You crazy girl!!!! Wow, Steph. I\'m speechless. I couldn\'t have asked for a better birthday present. I feel truly honoured that you took the time to write in such detail about my little fic. If you hadn\'t put all the specifics in, I would have thought you were writing about someone else. Thank you so much, Steph. *hugs*

*stares aghast at Mrs. Weasley* Ooh, Lor. Better watch out! *hand trembles as she hands Lori quill*

Author's Response: :S Would Mrs. Weasley really send the Squad after me??? I thought only Umbridge could be that cruel... hmm... well, I have promised to have it out by the end of the month... I'll do my best to get it out earlier. Thanks for the quill... I hope it's magically enhanced to move the huge block that's in my way...
