Hi, I'm Connor Landon. I'm currently a senior in my final year at the University of Maine for Secondary Education, with a concentration in English. I love to read and write, obsessively check Twitter and NewMoonMovie and MuggleNet and all of my other fansites, take photos, play solitaire and tennis, swim, listen to music, and knit and crochet woollen items for poor college students (aka: my friends).
Obviously, I love Harry Potter. Though, since the seventh book has been released, my life has been sadly devoid of HP-related things. I still Beta read sometimes, and I love the story "Ginny's House" on PhoenixSong.net, but other than that...
I also love The Lord of the Rings, His Dark Materials, Phantom of the Opera, Titanic, Twilight, Percy Jackson, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. I'm a dork, what can I say?
Taigan, man. what's goin' on with the updating? is the next chapter available on another site, or have you just given up or summat?
Author's Response: No, I haven't given up... I'm just trying to regroup in the aftermath of HBP. OMF is going to take some major (and I mean MAJOR) turns in the next few chapters, and I'm just trying to get all my ducks in a row before I write it. I don't want any loose ends and with the bombshells I plan on dropping, I'm working my nerve up to post. I'm also working on a co-write with Professor Mary which is almost finished. It's definitely NOT like OMF. Thank you, though for your continued interest in OMF and I promise that I will finish. It's just that I have to work up my nerve because I think some people will want to come find me and murder me in my sleep pretty soon... Hope that isn't too cryptic for you... Cryptic actually might be a really good word for what's going to happen... I'm just going to leave it at that... Sorry.
Great chapter. Completely inaccurate? I can't even fathom what Draco's prophecy means, so you're doing great. We're going to have to wait a few weeks for the next chapter? It'd better be good... ;) Knowing you, it will be.
Author's Response: Actually Ch. 21 is done and I was just waiting for them to upload this chapter to post the next one. More good news: I've written about half of Ch. 22, as well... Thanks so much for the great review!
This is such a great story. I am in awe of the fabulosity. You have made me almost speachless. I was inattentive all during school today, desperate to finish the story where i left off. I love this story. It's the very first Hr/D fanfic i've read, and i love it. please keep on writing!
I liked this chapter. I hope you'll go back into Hermione and Draco's thoughts, i love those chapters. you write so vividly, it's not difficult to believe that these thoughts are really theirs. Everyone seems as in-character as possible. You've done great.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. It means a lot that people think I'm staying true to the canon. I appreciate it. ~Taigan
Summary: A view into Hermione's diary shows the human that resides behind the bookworm. PG-13 for language. Note: This fic was completed before the release of HBP, so it will only follow through OOTP canon.
Hey, i'm the first to review! Surprise, it is. I liked this chapter. Totally caught me off-guard that harry was dating that-that weedy tart parvati. She is so ditzy and incredibly maddening. Anyway, love the chapter.
Nice chapter. Quite amusing.
This is SO FUNNY!!! I love this side of "Hermione", she's awesome. You write her wonderfully! It almost sounds like my diary...
Summary: Lily Evans and James Potter agreed on only one thing since they first met: they'll always hate each other. But after five years, James begins to see things, to see her, differently, and wants another chance. But Lily is one stubborn girl. Can he convince her that his feelings are real? Meanwhile, the pair is thrust into many different dangerous and humorous situations with their friends. Will it take a disaster to help Lily believe in true love? Or will a tragedy just push her farther away? How many times does James have to try before he stops messing up? Follows with the information provided by JKR, with some fun along the way.
I like this chapter, but i think that lily behaves way too immaturely sometimes. like stomping on james's foot on the way out of dumbledore's office. and slapping him...or maybe that was another fanfic, nevermind ;)
Great chapter! i love cliffhangers, and this sure is a great 'un!
Love this story! You're a wonderful writer and i hope you update soon!
This was an awesome chapter! take your time if it means longer chapters!!
This is a very, very good fanfic! Lily and James are my favorites to read about (I'm madly in love with James ;) ), and this story is one of the best i've read. your Evans and Potter almost perfectly live up to the image i have of them in my head. :)
Author's Response: I'm glad I'm shattering no dreams. :)
Summary: It's Lily's last year at Hogwarts, and she's determined to make it the best. But with Voldemort taking over everywhere, people are becoming distraught and friendships are breaking. Not to mention a certain someone just won't seem to give up on her. It seems like Lily just can't catch a break, and her friends and family are in danger...
Bloody merde, this is good. One of THE very best Lily/James fanfics i've read, and i've read tons, man! There is no cornyness that makes me cringe, which is very good ;) You have a great plot and amazing characters. Well, you've added on tremendous personalities, at least. I'm a fan now! keep on with the updates, you're doing great!
Author's Response: ehehehe, I love the word merde!! You just made my day!! If not my week (yes, my life is that boring. Well, what do you expect? I have school to go to...) Seriously though, thanks so much! I really hate corniness, so I do try and stay clear of it. As a fan (yay!!!) I hereby give you the right to yell at me for putting any corniness in ^_^
This is a great start and has a lot of potential. i like the direction it's heading. Awesome, keep going!
Wonderful story! I love seemingly-hopeless, going-downhill-until-you-crash fanfics. you do such an amazing job with it. Everyone seems to stay in character, for the most part. it's great to read fanfic that's not just fluff!
Holy crap, the wait is killing me. Please, please don't give up on this story! it's way too good for you to stop now!
This is an incredible Dark fic. I love it. I don't trust Medea either, there's just something about her...hard to explain. And Harry...I stopped trying to understand this version of him a long time ago. I pronounce Medea like "Med-ay", by the way...I have pronounciation issues.
Oh, and I forgot to say UPDATE SOON!!
Sorry 'bout your writer's block, man. I think we'll be able to forgive you if the next chapter's really good... :P
Erg, it's really killing me not to have a new chapter of this story to read. It's my favorite Dark fic, up there w/"The Gathering Dark". *sigh* Please update as soon as you can!
