Oi! You there! Read my stuff, will you?
I thought I'd advertise Social Loner's amazing bannermaking skills and my latest poem. Behold!
Come on then, what are you waiting for?
Summary: It’s been a year. A year since I last saw him. It breaks my heart, the pain of not being with him. But I must be strong. Strong for him, and all those fighting. Fighting for peace.
Peace. I ponder the concept. What will a world in peace be like? It gives me a small feeling of warmth, that maybe there will be peace. Peace from a war that has gripped the world, my world, so hard, and made it suffer so much.
Read to find out who this is, and what they're talking about! It's angsty, but has a happy ending!
Quite interesting, I suppose, but not exactly what I expected. I knew it was goig to be Ginny and Harry, of course, but usually when I read those (and it is from Ginny's POV), it's CAPSLOCK!Angst. This was what I think is referred to as Whangst. Whiny angst.
Yes, I did find it a bit whiny. Incoherently whiny. All the "oh, I'm going to die, oh, he's going to die" did drag on my nerves some.
The end was nice, though. I like how Ginny- or you, as the author- interpreted "Ginny" as the word that meant the war was over.
Author's Response: Ohh, lol. I\'m sorry, I\'ve never been told that, but okay.. Lol, I can see what you mean though, how that could be annoying, but she was very worried, but yeah, I see where your coming from. Hehe, lol, my name\'s Ginny! :p Sorry, I just found that funny how you said \'Ginny- or you, as the author\' cuz my name\'s Ginny and I\'m the author.. Lol, sorry. Thanks for the review!
Summary: The story of one boy and his life changing as he is taken to Centurion, the American Academy of Sorcery, and begins a quest to find others to fulfill a prophecy to save all known life. And as he finds the others, they learn from each other and grow to become the most powerful wizards on the planet in an attempt to save it all.
**I would just like to make sure that everyone knows that all the spells, people, places, etc. from the HP world belong to the wonderful J. K. Rowling**
Woah. That was wierd, mate. Interesting. I'm wondering about what directions this is going to take... hm....
Summary: The Dursleys have left Privet Drive and are in hiding with Hestia Jones and Dedalus Diggle. Hestia and Mr. Dursley are constantly fighting, Petunia is avoiding the wizards at all costs, and Dedalus is trying to make them all the best of friends. Meanwhile, Dudley discovers he has an interest in Harry's world, but his parents are less than pleased when they find out.
Wow, that was exciting. The conflict between Dudley and Vernon is really good, plus you're working in the 'real world' elements well, too. Keep writing!
Ooh. Good new chapter. I love Dudley in this. Keep 'em coming!
Author's Response: Thanks!
:D New chapter! I liked the plot development we got here and action. Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Ooh, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: The first time it happens, he is fourteen. Sitting at the Gryffindor table, Peter thinks of murder. (What's wrong with him?)
[Peter Pettigrew, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and the logic of fives. Dark, some disturbing imagery. One shot.]
Oh. My. Godric.
That was fantastic. The imagery, the wording, the everything. The ending was (*cough*) killer.
I really don't know what to say except for well done.
Summary: They say when the Full Moon dawns, the animal inside you awakens. But in the case of one Fenrir Greyback, the beast that lurks beneath his flesh always stirs. What happens when his latest attack on one wizard family goes too far?
Ooh, that's lovely, that is. The imagery and wording was wonderful, although it was a little rambling and hard to follow. Keep up the nice work.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I\'m sorry it was rambling..it wasn\'t meant to be so. How was it hard to follow? Thank you so much for taking the time to review!
Summary: My place is of the sun, and this place is of the dark,
Ginny must let go of the one thing that kept her anchored to the thin illusion of peace in Britain. But the illusion is only an illusion and Ginny must learn how to let go and to face the future with a brave face.
“A thing is not necessarily true because a man chooses to fight for it.”
This fic was written for the Susan Bone's Book Club's Secret Summer Story Swap.
First of all, I'd like to congratulate yo uon a well written fic. It wasn't exactly my favourite of yours, but I still enjoyed it.
The lyrics felt a bit... neutral to me. Truth be told, I barely read them- more like skimmed- except the ones at the end. IT sounds like an interesting song, though.
'Twas also a tad jerky, jumping from place to place. But, after about half of the fic, that was cleared up.
What I REALLY liked about this fic was the awesome twist. I totally thought it was about Harry (although the part about the cat confused me slightly: I was pretty sure Harry didn't have a cat that I knew of) until you said Draco's name. AND he wasn't actually dead, he was just comatose.
This fic was a very good look at feelings of grief and love and finally finding the will to move on and let go. In the end, we're sad about Draco and his fate (and Ginny having lost her love), but also happy that Ginny has finally decided to stop letting him control her life.
Author's Response: Thanks, Stubby! When I wrote this I wasn\'t really in my best mood and neither was my writing skills either. This was more of a \"get it down on paper quickly\" kind of story... I actually wrote it during the last two days of my friend\'s father\'s life and finished it during the funeral. I had to edit it a bit to enter it in the SBBC fic exchange. Thanks for the review!
Summary: A response to the Summer Challenge at Potter Place
Prompt No 11: Post Voldy defeat and Hermione is now a vampire. Given the Wizarding world's intolerance of vampires what will she do? Who will help her? Perhaps the bat of the dungeons?
Plese note that even though there is a Character Death warning, it is not for one of the main characters
Alright, I must admit that this story has an interesting, original premise. Who'd ever thought of Hermione becoming a vampire?
But, my enjoyment of this fic pretty much ends there. It moves quickly- too quickly to be natural- and the dialouge is dust flying off carboard cutout characters. There seems to be only one way each character can act- Hermione can only be a stereotypical 'vampire trying to be good' and Severus can only be, well, the stereotypical fanon Snape.
Don't get me wrong- the story's got promise. If you can breathe life into your characters, slow down the action and paint believable words and scenes, you could have an amazing fic here.
Lord Voldemort: The Musical! (Les Miserables Potterized!) by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 39]
Summary: Yet another musical twisted by yours truly, it's the tale of Voldemort's life set to the tune of my Les Miserables soundtrack!
The real musical of Les Miserables was created by Claude-Michel Schönberg, Herbert Kretzmer, and Alain Boublil.
There is some violence and it really is not a silly musical-- there are a few funny parts, but there are some pretty sad or intense bits. AND LOTS OF PEOPLE DIE. And there are some cannibalism-happy bits with Fenrir, including a whole song called "Man Eat Man." Beware.
Ooh, here's my fave bit:
VOLDEMORT: Had you been here on time, you might also have seen
All the colours of spells, all the bright beams of light.
SNAPE: Why does this seem so wrong and Lily seems so right?
DEATH EATERS: Green–the noble killing curse!
Red–the dashing Crucios!
Green–a bruise that’s getting worse!
Red–a victim’s blood that flows!
SNAPE: (Simultaneous with above) Green–envy that never dies!
Red–the pain when she’s not there!
Green–the colour of her eyes!
Red–the colour of her hair!
VOLDEMORT: Severus, you’re no longer a child.
I do not doubt you mean it well
But now there is a higher call.
Look at me and my shattered soul!
We strive toward a larger goal.
Love doesn’t matter, not at all!
EVERYONE BUT SNAPE: Snake–the life that springs from death!
Skull–a victim’s skeleton!
Skull–someone who’s smelled Snape’s breath!
Snake–the sign of Slytherin!
LOL. Love your spoofs, Schmergo. You could be the next Weird Al or something....
Author's Response: Oh, I\'d love to be the next Weird Al. Like, as an actual job. My mum doesn\'t support it, though, sadly. That song was one of my favourite bits, though.
Summary: Of love and luck and pain and death and Hope.
In dying, the bleeding pearl whispers aloud and secrets revealed, will change everything.
Written for the Autumn Ode Challenge by crazy_purple_hp_freak of Slytherin
This poem is totally going in my favourite stories list.
I was wondering what you had in mind when you wrote it, though. I got a feeling of either Remus or Snape.
But man, was that good.
Summary: It’s all about the little things…
If you’ve ever missed somebody special, this is for you.
Aw... my heart goes out to everyone who has lost loved ones.
Author's Response: As does mine.
Summary: The first thing it knew was the hunger. Life from a Dementor's point of view.
Woo-hoo! Dementor fic!
I was slightly confused by it, but I'm just crazy. It's ultimate coolness outweighed the bad things, though- you must have put a lot of thought into this. Congrats!
Summary: Nineteen-year-old Sirius and his crumbling inside.
Ooh. Sirius angst. How I love it.
Summary: After her sister Petunia goes to Hogwarts, Lily waits for her own letter, a letter that never comes.
You know, I've been seeing a lot of 'Petunia was the witch' stories lately, and I'm really liking them.
It really shows you what Petunia might have felt about the whole thing with Lily, you know.
I do love the last line as well.
Author's Response: Thanks, Stubby. I\'m glad you liked the story. :)
Summary: Romeo and Juliet. Tony and Maria. Alastor and Sybil. These six people have something in common.
A songfic to Somewhere from West Side Story
All warnings are mild, but they have to be there.
Woah, I've never heard that one before. Sybil/Alastor. It was nice, though- a little brief, but sweet and touching nonetheless.
Author's Response: I was actually challenged to write this one - Hufflepuff\'s I Challenge Thee thread. When I first got the challenge, I very nearly gave up on it because it was so random! Anyways, I was actually able to lengthen my original drabble and voila! The story was created. I\'m very glad you enjoyed it and thank you for leaving me a review!
Summary: It is a part of human nature to fantasize on the meaning of love. Only when it is lost, however, can it be truly understood.
May be read from many points of view.
Bring your Kleenex. Rated cautiously.
As I was reading this, I kept trying to think of who it was from the POV of. It really made me think of Ginny, because it sounded like Harry she was talking about and the senarios made sense. I guess it COULD be from someone else's, but that's what made the most sense to me.
It wasn't the most fantastic thing I've ever read (it was a tad bland and a little... cliche?), but I did enjoy reading it. Kudos to you, and I hope your fanfiction career takes you to marvelous places!
*clink of butterbeer bottles*
Author's Response: Yes, it is Ginny who I think of first when I read this, although like I said it works for others. Thanks for your honesty, I do agree! -toasts-
Summary: Against his better judgment, Remus Lupin takes a teaching job at Hogwarts. And being back is not quite what he expected.
A submission to the Extra Credit prompt in the Autumn Challenge by solemnlyswear_x of Gryffindor.
Aww, how sweet!
Author's Response: Thanks! =)
Summary: "All is well" endings don't always happen.
And when you're afraid, sometimes all you can do is jump.
Hmm, interesting, Katie. Very interesting. Some of the figurative language is compelling ('Watch the sands in the hourglass,
Slowly counting down.
To the loss of all innocence,
On this murky ground.' is my favorite, I think), and it sounds really lyrical.
My only critisism is that it just sounds OOC of Harry to me, but it doesn't really affect the poem.
Author's Response: Thanks, Stubby! Yeah, Harry was bit OOC, but if he hadn\'t been, this poem wouldn\'t exist. Thanks for the amazing review!
Author's Response: And as for the lyrical thing. . . . See, all my poems start out as songs, and then I tweak them so they\'re a bit less song-ish. I think you can still kind of tell, though.
