I'm a 22 year old girl from England. I've got a horse, who lent his name for this and have recently completed a degree in Chemistry at university.
I first read the Philosopher's Stone about 4 years ago, and I read books 2 and 3 on my birthday about 3 weeks later. I read all the remaining books on the day they came out.
So far, I've written, or in the process of writing, five fics on here - 2 oneshots, 1 shorter fic and 2 longer fics. Please let me know your opinions on them, I read every comment I get and add a response. If you've got any questions/suggestions/plot ideas etc. feel free to contact me and I'll do my best to answer asap.
Also, I do know a little Latin so if anyone wants a bit of a hand with translating spells from English into Latin, feel free to email me and I'll do my best to help. Also, I'm more than happy to beta read stories, if anyone wants me to - just email me and I'll write back as soon as I can.
Thanks a lot to all you guys who have taken the time to review my stories - it is very much appreciated.
All I say to my fellow fic writers and friends though is:
Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus.
Hi again! First, I want to say Happy Christmas and thanks for the update! A great way to start the holiday... :) Anyway, I'll get on with the review...
'No one could come back from the dead … unless … You added this at the beginning so casually but, well, I guess there is a way ot bring someone back from the dead? Or there isn't a way, but Phoebe thinks there is...? It just struck me as I started reading the chapter that it seemed like it was significant. Possibly Snape knows something that Phoebe will need to help Harry?
I liked the way you introduced your new character, it gave the reader just enough information to make us curious but without giving too much away. The comment about the tax man was classic though - I loved it! Gives me the impression that the guy knows his stuff but isn't completely on top of everything in his life. Kinda reminded me of Slughorn...
When Severus answered, “Only me,” I have to say that it unnerved me a little bit. Your new character must be sure of himself, of know Snape very well, to describe him as 'only you'. I mean, Snape has been renowned in his time at Hogwarts as mean, evil, sarcastic etc. and to see him greeted almost casually, in a friendly way, was really nice but a little bit unnerving.
I also liked the way you showed Logan's reaction to Voldemort's return. Snape's sarcastic, abrupt answers were really true to his character though so well done!
"But it can’t be true, Severus, you know it can’t.” That line made me shiver. How often in the real books do we see characters in denial of Voldemort? Fudge, for example, in the Goblet of Fire when he refused to believe Voldemort was back. Hang on, are you going for copious amounts of irony here?! Lol, good cliff hanger as well. I wonder what Snape wants with Logan...?
Sorry for going on so long but once I started reviewing I just couldn't stop! I also read your response to the last review I left... *blushing* Thank you! I hope you have a good christmas and I can't wait for the next update! I hope I'll be able to update Flame of Obitus as soon as the mods reopen the queue again. I've got the whole story planned now and quite a lot of it's written, including the ending. If you want, maybe check it out sometime?
Happy Christmas though (For the third time now I think!) and I hope you have a great time!

Author's Response: Thanks again Stormy, your reviews really are a great help to me. I read through your fic, I think, but last time I looked it wasn't updated. I'll read and review for you now :) Now, "no-one can come back from the dead, unless ..." This should be easy enough to work out, and it relates very closely to Voldemort. I won't say any more incase I ruin the fic, but look out for clues further on in the fic. Again, thanks for the review Stormy and have an excellent christmas!!!! ~Ermine the One
I thought this was really good, especially as I haven't read a full length account of what happened when Voldemort killed Lily/James. My only thought though, is that Harry seemed to be talking a lot using fairly long words, like 'coward'. Maybe I'm wrong but I can't really see a baby saying that. Otherwise, it was really good, and well written. 9.
Author's Response: Well, I wasn't sure how much Harry-speech I could get away with, so I just decided that if that's not normal for a 1 year, 3 month old.. then he's special. :) Glad you like it... :) ~*~ LIZ
Does two reviews warrant an update?! Anyway, I'll get tothe revieing bit... I loved it! Really original, and it could be interesting seeing Snape as a werewolf... The wolf that bit him; Lupin or someone else? I really hope you can update soon, this one is definitely being added to my favs!
Author's Response: THANYOU!! aswell. I decided to get Snape bitten because he was always scoffing at Lupin being a werewolf so I thought it would do him good to suffer ... Even though Snape is definitely my favourite character. I want atleast 10 reviews, actually, though I suppose I may end up giving in eventually ... Thanks for putting me in your favourites, I'm honoured - your the only one to do this I think. As for who actually bit Snape ... It's pretty obvious, I know, but I won't say the answer yeet - that's in next chapter when I decide to update.
I was wandering through my favs (again) and I re read your chappie for the second time since I was a little bit bored. All I can say is wow! This is just as good 2nd time around as it was the first time and I was still scared rigid at the end! You sure as heck can right Angst, lol. Absolutely great and I hope you can update soon *pleading*. God, I hate cliff hangers!
Author's Response: A few people have said this story is scary ... lol! I'm so happy this is going the way I hoped it would. Well, I am half-way through Chpater Two for this at the moment as I have decided to update at last *bows to the cheers*. the next Chapter won't be as good as this one as i have to explain what happened *yawns very widely* but it should get REALLY exciting after that - I have the whole thing worked out and the endings gonna be a big surprise ... ooh.
Anyway, Stormy, I've updated A New Battle, so if you want to read that (I dunno if you have already or not) I'll be most grateful.

*Shivers* I just found this and it was so, so sad. I don't really know what to say except well done... *Shivers again* You seemed to keep everything blunt and to the point which made it more haunting, I suppose. My only comment though is a six year old is unlikely to know what 'insanity' means... Just a thought though and very well written. Nice touch at the end, too...
Author's Response: Hey Linda! Thanks for the concrit, I didn't really think about that before, and so I have changed Neville's Grandmother's explanation into something that a six-year old would (hopefully) understand! I'm glad that you found it chilling, that was the iuntended affect! Lexi xxx
