I'm a thirty-something teacher. I stumbles into HP when some of my students mentioned it, and I've been hooked ever since.
I'm starting to get antsy for book 7, and I'm using fan-fic to keep me sane while I wait.
You have a real knack for teen angst!! Reading your stories, I can remember the feelings vividly, and I'm amazed that you can get them down "on paper" so well.
Keep it up!
I've discovered that I'm a true-blue H/G shipper!
"Her smile could light a room for him, and, in turn, her tears were enough to shroud the sun." - That's a phrase that ducks neatly past being a cliche to end up exquisite!! Thanks yet again!
At the risk of repeating the prevailing view, WOW!
This is literally the first fan fic I've stopped to read, and I suspect I hit the jackpot.
Like many others, I felt the same sense of anticipation reading your chapters that I do when reading the books.....and the same sense of disappointment when I reached the end. Not disappointment in your resolution (which I thought was brilliant!) but in having no "Next" button to click!
Excellent characterization....I can hear each character's voice, (except perhaps for Sirius).
Phenomenal plotting, while drawing in many of the best theories in fandom.
You've convinced me that I WANT Harry to be a horcrux, just to see how JKR resolves it!
Thanks, and keep writing!
I already submitted a review, but in reading these I realized two significant items I skipped.
1 - I wouldn't expect a fan fic to be good enough to get me choked up at work! (I couldn't stop reading!)
and..2 - Thanks
