Hi, my name is James and I have a problem. I am addicted to Harry Potter. I am fairly new to Harry Potter Fan Fiction, having started reading it in June of 2007. I was waiting for DH to come out and had already reread the series so I stumbled along MNFF. I started reading a story that I printed off in the library of the local college. I cannot find the Authors name of the title of the story but it was good. Next I came across Just Married......Kinda by ColorOfAngels. I was addicted from then on out.
Currently, I am completly addicted to Harry Potter and the Serpent's Eye by Marauder9744 (which I stayed up until 5 am reading the first 15 Chapters and had to go to work at 7am), Skeletons in the Closet by Merlynne, and For Bitter or Worse by Kerichi, which gets updated every Friday :). These 3 are good authors and I can't wait for their updates. I am also reading Grimmrook's Epilouges story arc, and I have finally gotten to the current material. The Epilouges Part III: The Nightshades is wonderful. It is rated Professors but is a great read for all 'of age' fans.
I also have to say something special about Fawkes' Gifts by red haired mom. It is a pre DH fic that is really excellent. You have to check it out, she is amazing. Just be prepared, you need to know your Harry Potter to read her stuff she makes alot of references to past events and ties them in wonderfully (like the questons of Snape in chapter 3).
Make sure to write reviews for these 5 authors, they have always responeded to my comments and I am sure they would love to hear from you.
good story i really enjoyed it. can't wait for the next chapter
Author's Response: Thanks!
great job, i enjoyed it. I hope there is more to come. You have a great beta, too (I love the Dark Lord's Blog).
That was a good fic. I really liked it.
Author's Response: Thanks, glad you liked it!
That was awesome, I really liked it. Great job writing Stubby.
Author's Response: Thanks!
All is not well.
George uses work and Firewhisky to cope with Fred's death until a drink with a friend leads to something that dulls pain better than alcohol. Emotionally torn by grief, he struggles to allow Alicia into his life...and then comes baby....

I was so excited to get out of work and see that email:) I really like this ship and your writing is really good. Keep up the good work. Can't wait till friday.
Author's Response: I was excited to receive an alert for your review, so it\'s a win/win situation! :D
Thank you for the compliment. I\'ll do my best to post because I hate waiting for updates too, and I really want to tell this story! :)
Good chapter. It was the first one I have read on this site in months and it was a good welcome back. The best part is that I get to keep reading.
Author's Response: Yay! I\'m first! The others may form a queue, LOL. I\'m glad you found your way back to the site--free time is a good thing! :D
Awesome. I wished it would have been longer, but I was still pleased. I finally got to read this, I had internet but no time, and it was worth the wait. I cannot wait for more chapters. I like the 'Fred' wasn't there as much as George was answering him. The change is comming
Author's Response: Thank you! (no time implies a good time, so Yay! for you, :D) With two fics to update weekly, I\'ll keep a 2K minimum, although I wish I had time to write a lot more. :)
good chapter, I'm off to the next!
Author's Response: Whoo-hoo, you\'ve got more free time!
good chapter! I enjoyed the victory snog!
Author's Response: There\'s something about a victory snog--maybe the extra rush of adrenaline. ;)
Squire Cab was pretty funny, at first I just assumed that it was a Muggle cab name. I am glad you sorted that out. I was happy to see that the engagement finally took place. It was a well written chapter.
Author's Response: I figured if there was a Knight Bus, why not Squire Cabs? :D Thank you!
If you are going to pick hockey players, please pick good ones (for help in this subject consult the Red Wings roster). I liked this chapter. it was quiet good. I am glad Anne showed up.
Author's Response: I\'m sensing you have a favorite hockey team. :D
George would worry any protective mother, but Anne will come around...eventually...LOL.
I really enjoyed the story here. I liked the Mama Jama, it reminds me of my friends. I am glad to see that George thinks he can change. Let's see if he does.
Author's Response: Your friends like disco, or have all the curves a man likes? :D Good for them, either way!
Good work again!
Author's Response: Thank you for being kind enough to say so!
You put Fleur in danger? What more does that family need to go through. Is George feeling okay? He seems to be acting odd. :) I liked this chapter alot. Thanks for finding the time to finish by Friday, it sounded like a busy week for you. See you next Friday!!
Author's Response: Fleur\'s a first time mother. Every symptom will have Bill owling the midwitch, lol. She\'s not in danger, just in need of more fluids and less stress in her life. Should be interesting, Fleur and Bill sharing a flat with George for a few weeks! Do you think Fred\'s room is really a mess? ^_~
Good stuff I am off to the next one.
Author's Response: You\'re making my day brighter!
I like the God Rest Ye Merry Hippogriffs/ Stubby Boardman reference. It made me think of the Sirus is Stubby article in the Quibbler. Is that what you were going for?
Author's Response: Absolutely! If Sirius didn\'t have an alter-ego named Stubby, he should have. Think of the fan fiction! :D
Good chapter I have missed reading this latley.
May is a busy month for most people, isn't it? :)
Thank you for missing the story!
That was a really good chapter. I can't wait for more. I really liked the part about Harry looking like Malfoy without the pimp cane.
Author's Response: Ta, Thanks! That\'s why he had to get a haircut--there were no pimp canes in stock! :D
Great Chapter, I relly liked it. I enjoyed all of the little details. I made it really good.
Author's Response: There's a French saying, Le bon Dieu est dans le detail, (God is in the details) and the German variation, Der Teufel steckt im Detail (the devil is in the detail) so details are important and I thank you for the compliment! ^_^
Good chapter. I liked in the notes when you talked abou the history of the castle. Actually, one of the best parts of the writing is the AN when you talk about the processes you went through.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for enjoying the author notes! That's something you can't do with original fiction, :D, so I enjoy the perk of fan fiction (like reviews, and replying to them! ^_~)
