Summary: 2008 QSQ Awards Runner-up for Best Post-Hogwarts
Harry defeated Voldemort. Harry married Ginny. Harry and Ginny had five children. Harry disappeared. My name is Lily Potter, and this is the story of what happened when my father returned after six years missing to find my mother about to re-marry. This is the story of myself, my crazy family, and most of all, this is the story of my parents and the man who tried to come between them. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
"Oh, I can so die happy now!" -Sirius Potter
it is a very sad chapter. I am beginning to hate, no, to Despise Dick. However I think you did a great job of creating a villain like him. I also thought that it was really cute how Harry proposed to Ginny.
I cant wait to read the next chapter!
Author's Response: I must admit, I had a lot of fun making a villain out of him ;) Thanks for the review!
Summary: James and Lily go through school together. They come to realize that they hate each other, and love each other. This is the story of their good times and bad times.
ooohhhh, very nice first chapter. I really like your style of writing. I think that you are really good at describing all the different characters. I can imagine each of their experiences perfectly after your descriptions. I also love the humor that you have woven into this story. I can't wait to read on!
GREAT job! *smiles*
ooohhh very nice second chapter. I really like this story! Can't wait to read on!
wow another great chapter. Your a really talented author. Great Job! YOU ROCK!!!
Summary: The line that probably best describes the legacy that the Weasley twins left behind after their Great Escape, during Umbridge’s brief rein at Hogwarts. Their legend lasted years afterwards ... but eventually, the only permanent physical reminder was the roped off corner of one corridor, containing a small part of swamp. The mystery of its origins is merely smiled at reminiscently by teachers, and the students can do nothing but spread rumours of how it came to be. When little Janey Weasley starts life at Hogwarts, the mystery is still unsolved. On a whim, and desperate for recognition, she writes home to her father, asking how it came to be. When Ron replies with the true story, a chain of events begins that might just be the making of the next true Hogwarts mischief legend ...
**One-Shot, Post Hogwarts** Now available as AudioFiction Episode #95!
lol. that was a sweet and very funny story. i love that little janey weasley shes so cute. i also love the way you gave her rons red hair and hermoines bushy hair. It really makes her seem like their daughter. And that mischieve she caused... lol, she is truly fred(sob, so sad he died) and georges niece. I think that the marauders(so sad they died) would have liked her too. oooh i cant wait to read all the other janey weasley stories. they are most probably just as great(or even better) than this one. a great story, really made me smile:)
Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m glad you like Janey! She is most definitely a Weasley, after all, and the Marauders WOULD love her. Thanks for reviewing, I hope you enjoy the rest of the series!
Summary: Who would have thought hair was so important? Draco's hair was always perfect, but what would happen to him if it was ruined? A parody of 'Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer', for the Winter Challenge: Christmas Carol Parody by Just Tink of Hufflepuff House.
yay^^ that was a BRILLIANT poem. I rhymed perfectly and fit together very well. I love the humor you put into it.
Summary: A fun, absolutely pointless parody involving Harry and some shepherds, three kings, Mary, Joseph, and a lot of sheep.
This is dragonwings writing in the Winter Challenge for... GRYFFINDOR!
thats a great poem, youve really got potential. i really loved it^^
great job and please continue writing
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I\'m glad that you liked it!
Summary: Sequel to “It Unscrews The Other Way”
Due to popular demand, our favourite imaginary Weasley is back, this time coming to the end of her first year at Hogwarts. She is now an established trouble-maker, but there is always that issue of grades vs. good times. With various relatives (well, her favourite uncles) telling her one thing, and other relatives (well, her mother) telling her another, anyone would be at a loss as what to do ...
i loved this story.your AWSOME!!!!!your one of the best(maybe even THE best writers)one this site. i think it was one of my all time favorites (my all time favorite is "the things i do for L.O.V.E") i loved the way you told the story through letters just like you told "the art of the quill" through notes. your really very good at writing in that kind of style. I really love janey. she is just too cute. congrats on making her up!
thumbs up for another great story
thats all from me now, i gotta go read the next janey weasley story.^^yay YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: I\'m not the best writer on the site, by a long way, but thanks for saying it. I guess I can write letters and notes and things because I do it all the time, either in lessons during school (not that I would ever dream of passing notes, of course ;D) or at home. Because I email my friends a LOT. So I\'m used to the style. Anyway, enjoy the next one! Thanks again for reviewing!
oh yeah, before i read more of your awsomeness i just want to say that my favorite letters were the ones of ron. they were just sooooooooooooo funny. GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: =D I love Ron, too.
Summary: What is a hero? Somebody who risks everything to save a friend? Somebody who sticks to their beliefs? Or is a hero simply somebody who appears brave to the rest of the world? Follow the thoughts of Peter Pettigrew in this poem written from Peter to Sirius.
wow, your really good at writing poems! I love the way you described wormtails thoughts and how he felt about sirius. I think it would be so like wormtail to fancy himself as a hero. I also think that what sirius said Don't let him touch me, Remus. / I might catch it." would be something sirius would definitely say. I think that was one the best though out lines in the poem! GREAT job!
Summary: Third one-shot in the Janey Weasley series.
We skip ahead to her fifth year, although this particular saga is told through the eyes of ordinary, Quidditch Captain, Hufflepuff boy, Frankie, as he realises that even though everybody loves Janey Weasley ... he might just love her a little bit more. What’s a young, Hufflepuff Quidditch Captain to do? Ask the people close to her for advice? Ask his team mates for advice? Do something bold and daring for the first time in his life? ALL of the above? I guess you’ll have to read and find out, won’t you?
awwwwwwwwwwww. soo sweet. this is by far my favorite on of the janey series (the other ones are really great aswell but this one is a stroke of briliance!) i really like janey. she is from now on my favorite harry potter character! I think that frankie and janey would go sooooooo sweet together. even their names fit, and ofcource theyr personalities, even though they are quite different, they still seem to fit perfect(you made that really great to make it seem like that!) ooooh are they gonna marry??? will they get kids??? whats gonna happen next???
ill just have to read the next one huh? cant wait yay YOU ROCK!!! good on you for a great story^^
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'ve always thought Frankie and Janey were perfect for each other. Love! Enjoy the next one. Thanks for all the reviews of this series!
Summary: One hot summers day, all is unusually peaceful for the Marauders, as they laze about in the Grounds. Of course, they can’t possibly stand for that sort of thing, so James decides to begin a word game with his friends that ends up with Lily being kissed, Sirius running for his life, and Dumbledore remembering his youthful days ... it could only happen to the Marauders!
Now available as AudioFiction Episode #100!
Thats really funny. I myself was puzzling with this clever word game along with sirius who didnt seemed to have a clue. It was another great story of yours.
Author's Response: Lol, thanks, I know how you feel! I didn\'t get it either ...
Summary: Fourth in the Janey Weasley series – oh no, it’s not over yet!
I’m Janey Weasley, and this little one shot is from MY perspective – lucky you! I’m nearing my twenty-first birthday, and there’s lots going on. Job interviews, family gatherings, along with lots of other matters of interest. Read on, and you’ll find out exactly what’s been going on since the last look in you got on my life! It’ll be amusing for you, I’m sure – it always is when you’ve a loopy family, barmy friends and boyfriend and ... well, mostly just the bit about having a loopy family. Welcome to my world!
aww made me feel all warm inside^^ i love the clumsy way frankie shows he cares. its too cute and funny. and its hilarious how janey delcares frankie "her dork" made me smile:)yay
I think that janey has grown into a wonderful young lady! she is just brilliant! my favorite harry potter character as i have said in earlier reviews! i especially like this one as it is written in her point of view and its written in a unique and great style. her thoughts are just great and very funny to read. that joke on fred and george was hilarious. it really made me laugh. However my favorite part in this was janeys job interview

Author's Response: Wow, thanks, I\'m glad you seem to like Janey so much! Frankie IS quite sweet, in a bumbling, dorky kind of way. I know I would be his friend! Have fun in the next one, you\'ll find out about Annie and David then!

Author's Response: We\'ll see, eh? Have fun, and thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Mini-fic with 3 parts.
I am a troubled girl. Everything that could go wrong, seems to go wrong. Throw in the biggest pain in the derriere a girl has ever had to put up with, a best and worst friend that you both love and hate, and a sister you just purely hate, and what do you get? My life. So that’s why I need an outlet – someone to yell at, someone to blame, and someone to draw some kind of twisted comfort from. Who better than my conscience? And how do I keep in contact with said conscience? Through writing letters to it of course! Need some convincing?
Well, I hurl a lot of verbal abuse about, make mistakes that could cost me everything I hold dear, and occasionally I get things – sort of – right. And where else could you read about lipsticks, rhubarb crumble and foam fights all in one mini-fic?
Well, I think I’ve convinced you enough. Don’t tell me you’re not tempted! Read my personal letters addressed to my conscience, and be amazed and enthralled at how utterly unstable my life is ...
I loved this story. It was really good and really funny. If I could I would actually propose its movie rights to hollywood. lol
Author's Response: Lol, well, I think Hollywood has better things to do ... but thanks anyway!
Summary: It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.
If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.
This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)
EXCITING NEWS! "The E-Journal of an Evil Janitor" is now continued as a Twitter blog! Go to Twitter dot com and find thedarklord666. Voldy's waiting!
omg...theres such thing as a cheese fork??? a fork only used for cheese??? thats so awesome!
Anyway I loved this chapter. wow, you own a hp computer. thats also awesome.(not so much for voldy though)
what was in the second letter?!?!?!?!? I guess i'd better read on to find out huh?
*reads on to find out*
Author's Response: I'm pretty sure there is such thing as a cheese fork! If not, feel free to sue me for duping you. Actually, it's been SO long since I updated this story that I no longer have the HP. I *had* an HP computer, which I won when I was a contestant on a game show, but unfortunately, it was a piece of trash. It almost never worked ,and then it died completely. So my parents bought a Dell laptop to replace it... and it DOES work, so I have a feeling I'll stick with the Dell brand.
hehehehe. *laughs* nagini and kaa. they seem like a good pair. but i always though kaa was a girl. ooops i musta thought wrong then. just one question. is Reinholdt Aristotle Brandt a muggle or a wizard. and what is her favorite colour?
please update this story! pleeeeees!!!
Author's Response: Thanks! I think Kaa's a guy, because the voice in the movie was done by the same guy who did the voice of Winnie the Pooh and the Cheshire cat, among lots of other Disney characters! I love spotting all the characters he played-- that guy's WACKY. Reinholdt Aristotle Brandt (who is actually a guy) is a wizard. His favourite colour is institutional beige!
Summary: Ron and Hermione have a heartfelt talk about what used to be when Ron discovers that she is dying. Will they get everything sorted out before the time comes? Or, will the time even come? The couple finally realises that a life and death situation needs love; no matter how hard the odds are of overcoming it.
This was written as an assignment for Roxy Black’s class, OWL-Level Romance, for the Spring Term of 2007. I am in Hufflepuff!
*sob* I've read this story a couple of times now and it still makes me cry. You really have a lot of potential and I think that you would be an outstanding author. This story is really toughing and it is written beautifully. I love your characterizations. You one of the best writers on this site. Congratulations on a brilliant masterpiece!
Author's Response: *blushes furiously* Thanks so very much! I really appreciate the wonderful review. :)
omg that was so sad. it was a great fanfic but i was practicly crying at the end. *wipes away tear drop*
Author's Response: Aw, I\'m so sorry I made you cry! Thanks for reading it!
awww. i read it twice now and it still makes me cry(that is really something coz i dont cry often) I think you wrote this fanfic really beatifully. your one of the best writers ever. that last sentence is really touching. it gives me the goosebumbs(in a good way)
Author's Response: Aw, that\'s one of the best compliments I\'ve received! Thank you so very much! ~Lindsey :)
