Hello, my name's Samarie. Welcome to my page!
I only have one story thus far [which you are more than welcomed to read&review], but with any luck that could change in the future. =]
My username in the boards is: Hopeful_song.
Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
At last! An update! Really loving this story... Whatever Pansy is planning with Harry and Ron is really intriguing! Keep up the good work and update again soon!
At last!!! An update!! Whoo-hoo!!!!!
It's great, I LOVE it!!! Update again soon!!!
It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.
No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.
Update (9 May): Chapter 17, Burning, is up! Enjoy!
For some reason this story dissappeared from my favourites, so I didn't get an e-mail telling me you had updated it. . . TWICE!
I love the way this is going. You said in one of your ANs that this would be around 24 chapters long, which means there are about 7 more chapters, right?
Anyway, I just hope you keep updating more frequently than you use to. . . =)
Oh My Godric!!! I absolutely love this fic! I saw that the SBBC was studying this fic, and it entrigued me when I saw comment about a 'Ron/Hermione/Remus Triangle' or something of the sort... and I am so glad I decided to read this! Is absolutely fantastic!
You have come up with a way that makes it 'plausible' for a 'Student /Teacher' relationship, and not many people are able to do that! Your characterization of Hermione is utterly superb, and the way you describe each and everyone of the Marauders... *sigh* Just perfect, absolutely perfect! I'm dying to see what Lily and James write to Harry...
Well, it's official, you have me hooked-up to this story from the very first time I read it (Yes, I did read it in just one day... I tend to do that from time to time when stories are this good) Keep up the good work! I'll be waiting eagerly for an update!
Summary: What would happen if Harry woke up one day to find that he had spent the last seven years, not as a wizard in training at Hogwarts, but as an inpatient at a mental institution?
Woow... that's just really confusing!! But in a good a way! Hehehe... But to make you feel better, I really love it! Which is the real reality? I don't know which to believe.. I'm intrigued! Please do try and update!!!
Summary: Harry has an opportunity to view a Pensieve memory of his parents—When Lily overhears James commenting on Remus’s “furry little problem” the Marauders must do some fast talking to get themselves out of a sticky situation.
Genius!!! Absolutely Hilarious! It was a great stoy, I had tears in my eyes by the time Florence, Foster and Flo were introduced by Wormtail!!!!
Good job!! Two-thumbs up!
Summary: The long awaited sequel to "It's Witchraft" (Draco/Hermione). Medea Malfoy had always looked up to her parents Draco and Hermione as the ideal wizard and witch...so imagine her surprise when some of her class mates seemed to hate her just because she was a Malfoy. What could be wrong with being a Malfoy? Patrick Potter had been told about The Malfoys his entire life, but he failed to understand how Medea, a fellow Gryffindor who had an unfailing love of justice, could possibly be bad.
What took you soo long?? *puppy eyes* But... Wow.
That was... incredible. I could really feel the tension build up! That was really great! I loved how Hyatt and Odile stood by Patrick's side... they seem like a new trio, only I hope their destiny isn't even similar to the first trio...
Keep up the great work and update soon!!!! 100000000000000/10
Great job! This chapter has left craving more, as always!!!
Keep up the good work! And update again soon! Pretty please?
Summary: “The greatest conflicts are not between two people but between one person and himself.”
What if doing the right thing wasn’t as simple as everyone thought? What if there was no such thing as an easy choice? What if both answers to a dilemma led you down a path that isn’t right or easy? Selena Rosa struggles with making just such a choice, a choice where neither path seems right. What will she ultimately choose?
Written for the “June/July Monthly Challenge Two: Conflict” by megan_lupin of Gryffindor.
Wow, that was just so powerful. The emotions are raw and one can feel for Selena. The conflicts inside of her it's heart wrenching.
I loved the way the story slowly develops. Just hinting slightly as to what was to come. Her nervousness in the beginning as she tries to find reassurance in her mind, the way Roger unknowingly gives her some, it is all so very well written.
I loved how you demonstrated the quote at the beginning all throughout the story. The conflicts she has to battle herself with are so powerful, so emotional. Her tortures were great, in the sense of how you portrayed them, that is. Not that is great to see someone tortured, that is for the Dark Lord only. ;)
I like the way you used the dementors to give some back-story, besides only torturing her. Bellatrix felt a little in the way, if you know what I mean. She felt, to me, as though she shouldn’t have been there. Though I know she must have enjoyed torturing Selena, I felt as though it was better to leave that to unnamed Death Eaters. But that is only my humble opinion.
One thing I really liked was that you didn’t make her be in love with Roger; that you really left him as a good friend and nothing more. When you introduced Michael, I liked how the descriptions make it seem as though it was Roger.
Carolina, poor Carolina. That was a major low blow from Voldemort. Poor little girl. What that must have been for her we may never know, or maybe we will if you write it some time. ;)
This was a very good story. I think I shall be reading some time the story from where Selena comes from.
Summary: Sequel to A Stolen Past. Please read that story first, as this one really won’t make sense if you don’t.
Harry Potter has rejoined the Wizarding world after a year-long absence, but still has no memory of his time at Hogwarts. Will he ever get his memory back? Will he be able to pass his classes without it? And most importantly, will he ever be able to defeat Lord Voldemort? Read on as the last of the mysteries introduced in A Stolen Past are finally revealed.
This is a story of friendship and mystery, with a healthy dose of H/G thrown in for good measure.
Wow, that's pretty much all I've got in my head... That was incredible! To prove that this was a REALLY good and addicting story, I'll tell you a little secret: I'm really exhausted because I read 'A Stolen Past' and 'A Past Reclaimed' in a couple of nights!!!! Great job in these stories!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m really glad you enjoyed them so much. I had a blast writing them, and it\'s really cool to hear that they can be so addictive. :-)
Summary: After a potion goes awry, Draco finds himself as the newly appointed babysitter of one Hermione Granger, age: 4. As if that wasn't humiliating enough, his wand is confiscated by Potter and he is forced to do everything the dreaded Muggle way.
Note to my readers: This story has been on hiatus forever due to a variety of factors. I do hope to finish it some day, but don't hold your breath. Also, this is NOT a Dramione nor will I change it to be one. Lastly, I am in the process of rewriting this story so bear with me.
Aww, poor Harry! Fists have met with his poor nose two consecutive days! lol
Ron's reaction was priceless!!! I would've been scared too if I some scary red-head appeared out of nowhere into room screaming at my 'nanny/best friend' and then trying to pick me up as if nothing had happened...
Poor Ron, he's feeling lost and confused as always.
Great job! Keep up the good work and update soon!
Author's Response: LOL! I know - this is my favorite chapter written. XD
Oh! And the Scorpius the Dragon thing was hilarious and very well done!!!
Author's Response: Scorpius the Dragon was just inspiration. XD
"I love you, Fewat!" -> Aww!!!!! How adorable! She's soo cute!
And Draco slowly coming to terms with heris absolutely perfect. I can't wait for the next chapter! Gah!!!
100000/10 Keep up the good work and UPDATE SOOOONNN!!!!! PLEASE!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks~ XD I'm working on it!
Summary: Lord Voldemort made a deal with someone who even he considers superior, and if he doesn't fulfill his side of it, then he'll be mortal again!
I am Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff house, and this is my submission for the Deathly Hallows prompt in the New Year's Challenge.
Although this story's a one-shot for the challenge, I may add more chapters after the contest is over.
EDIT: Dude! This story came in second in the "Deathly Hallows" prompt of the New Years' Challenge! So, let's do the "2nd Place Dance!" (It's a lot like the Cha-Cha slide.)
Hiya Schmerg! First of all, let me say that I absolutely love "The Dark Lord' Blog" and this story isn't far behind! You're an incredible writer! Love your twists!
Proud to be a fellow 'puff of yours!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you, Samarie! I\'m actually planning on continuing this now that DH has come out... I have some verrry interesting ideas.
Summary: What does Bill see in Fleur Delacour? How does a girl nicknamed "Phlegm" win the heart of a man described as "hardworking and down-to-earth" -- the heart of a Weasley?
There is more to this woman than meets the eye.
Hey, I was just re-reading this because we're discussing your fic at Characters Exploration Class and I found a little nit-pick...
"Bill back down next to her, putting a comforting arm around her, feeling her head rest on his shoulder."
You didn't put the word 'sat' in there... I guess you hadn't noticed, I know I noticed just now when I copied it as a quote, and after like the tenth time of reading the fic.. *giggles*
I'm glad Prof. Phily prompted us to read this fic, I do love it very much!
Author's Response: Mmmph. Grammatical errors. Thanks, I\'ll definitely fix that later!
Oh my! That was absolutely lovely! *sighs* That was incredible and so romantic! I just love this kind of fics, where you feel all light-hearted and good inside, when you feel as though it is happening to you...
You did a great job with this fic... Congratulations!!!
Author's Response: Thank you! I love making people happy with my stories.
Summary: The summer is over and Neville Longbottom is preparing to embark on his seventh year at Hogwarts' School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but there are all ready major changes in his life at the school. There are faces missing from the crowds around the great scarlet steam engine and life at Hogwarts will never be the same. What lies in store for the boy who could've been 'The Chosen One'?
Love this!! I don't really know what happens in Chapter 2, but I have joined in helping Chapter 3!!! Let's hope this keeps going as well as it is!!!
Summary: On Valentines Day when Lily and James are in their seventh year, Lily is waiting anxiously for James's annual embarrassing Valentine. But maybe this year it won't be what she expects ...
This was a GREAT, little, fluffy one-shot!!
I really loved it.. One can really connect with Lily's thoughts. I think we've all gone through a time when we think we "hate" someone, but then somebody makes a comment taht gets you thinking, "What if-?"
I absolutely lvoed the way you did it!! 10/10
Author's Response: Awww! Thanks so much! I’m really glad you liked it.
Summary: This fanfiction writer laments the loss of her favourite dark lord in a re-donk-ulous poem.
This is not very complimentary to Volders, so don't tell him about it if you see him around, okay?
Deathly Hallows spoilers.
Four times nominated for Best Poem in the Quicksilver Quills Awards!
Lord Voldemort, may he rest in piece!
Er- I mean, in peace... lol
Author's Response: Hahaha, yeah! Thanks!
Summary: Everyone assumes Sirius Black has never truly cared for a girl. They're wrong. It's just that he can't do anything about it.
Sirius/Lily? Read to find out.
Great job with this fic! It only has the prologue, and it still was good enough for me to like and wait for the rest to be posted, and I must say that that's a first since I usually read fics that are completed or have a fair amount of chapters...
Someone around here (in one of the previous reviews) that Sirius secret love was Lily, is it? I missed it completely! I have absolutely no idea who it really is, and it has me intrigued! Great job!!!
Author's Response: Well, if it has you intrigued, perhaps I shouldn\'t tell you! ^_~ But no, if you go back and reread it there are some serious hints Sirius is in love with! I hope you keep reading and reviewing! Thanks!!
