Bio:
Hello my darling visitors :) Yes, this is the same QueenHal who was crazy enough to take on the job of redesigning MuggleNet Fan Fiction for MNFF-2. I'm also the same QueenHal who runs the Bannermakers Association at the forums.


But as much as I love to design and make pretty pictures... I also love to write. Here you will find the cozy little corner of Haley. Er, I mean - here are the stories I've authored. I'm rather proud of everything I've posted here--but I know that they wouldn't even be here if it weren't for my darling SPEWers. How I love those crazy kids.

Oh. My. God.

We have reached a whole new territory here. This tale is now on par with some of the greatest fantasy adventures of all time. I am truly staggered by your ability.

Damn.

Wow - you've really hammered out the American wizard mythology here. I'm very impressed - very believable and fascinating. And it's a nice change getting some answers instead of questions! However, the hard thing with chapters like this is nothing much -happens- (and I almost wish the interrogation scene was beefed up a little more) - so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what's in store for our favorite siblings in the next chapter.

The return of Alex's doggerel verse! Oh boy! I admit, I've been a silent reader of yours for so long now, and it's not really fair is it!? It's thrilling that your chapters have been popping up with more and more swiftness - and I've been gulping them down with matching eagerness. I just adore Alex. And I adore your supporting characters more with each passing chapter. You've made her world real, tangible, and special. The cotillion and our introduction to the upper crust of Wizarding Society just cemented this for me. In fact, it's not unlike what I imagine their world to be like myself. I wish I had the same drive and creative energy to make such a complete world and story, and I applaud you for holding out on us until you've finished - what a difference it makes! I've started working on a little something something to accompany this chapter... can't wait for the next one!

What an enjoyable read! You've got a great cast of characters, an interesting, original plot, and a wonderful way with words. I'm looking forward to more!

Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm just wrapping up chapter seven. Barring the horrors of schoolwork, I hope to get up the next block of story in a few days.

 

Trickster by Willow Rosenberg
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 131]

Summary: After the disastrous events of the end of the Marauder's fifth year, a fuming Lily Evans decides that that arrogant James Potter and his friends need a taste of their own medicine. The straight-laced Prefect suddenly finds herself pranking her class's trickiest boys--and maybe even enjoying it. Coupled with a series of mysterious apology letters that Lily has begun receiving, it's bound to be an interesting year.

Very strong story, so far. It slips into JK's canon nicely, but has it's own stamp of authorship. I'm really looking forward to more!

Ah hah! A familiar adversary then? Fantastic. I'm also interested in your hints at Harry's thorough repulsion at using the Killing Curse. I'm wondering where that might be leading, and how that might affect him... like the detective that has to kill someone for the first time to save their partner. Still loving this, on to the next chapter!

Fantastic chapter. I love Ron, Harry, and Hermione having their own table in the corner of the Ministry dining hall, complete with their tell-tale banter and bickering. Despite how much our characters have grown up, the scene offered a sense of wonderful familiarity. The cliff-hanger ending is making me sweat, and I like the addition that Harry (but not Ron) was invited to Draco's wedding.

What a wonderful beginning! I was immediately caught up in the intensity of the moment... wondering if it were a dream, a training simulation... but the fact you made it reality is that much more exciting. Looking forward to more!

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! I hoped the reader would be wondering what was going on at first because I wanted to dive (no pun intended) straight into the action and then do the explaining afterwards.

 

Scenes from Shell Cottage by WeasleyMom
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 128]

Summary: This fic is a series of missing moments from the time H/R&H were at Shell Cottage, beginning immediately after they Disapparated from Malfoy Manor. JKR shows us what was going on with Harry, but this is my version of what could have happened with Ron and Hermione after one of the most emotional/disturbing events in the entire series.

UPDATED June 2010 When I first wrote this fic, I didn't know what a beta reader was, and frankly, it showed. Thanks so much to Natalie for helping me polish this up and make it more readable. Thanks also to both Julia and Carole, whose helpful comments in the review section allowed me to make some much-needed corrections during the rewrite. I would love to know what you think ~ reviews are very much appreciated!

This was nominated in the 2010 Quicksilver Quill Awards for Best Canon Romance.

Forgive me - I thought you were the same Weasley Mom who wrote "Finally Home" back in the day. Everything I said still stands, however - great work.

Author's Response: Thanks so much. Though I do feel badly now that I have usurped someone else's identity. I hope she will forgive me. Haha. I'm having a good time with this... thanks again for the kind words.

You're back!!!!! She's back! Oh goodness, I'm so excited. What a brilliant way to inaugurate Dark Regiment - as a former resident of San Fran, I just adored your description of the SF wizarding community (petrified gnomes is a fabulous touch). I loved this little peek into Anna's world, and am hoping all will be well for her soon.
