I'm a college student, wanna-be writer, and carnie (during the summer, anyway). Next year I'll be going into my sophomore year at Binghamton University, majoring in English.
I write fanfiction to give myself a break from my more serious work, but I do put a lot of effort into my fics, so if you enjoyed one, please leave a review.
EDIT: All of my stories are now AU. I will be finishing them; however, be warned, they will not take into account the events of HBP. Please do not flame me about this; I will ignore anyone who does.
EDIT NUMBER TWO: Due to an unfortunate application of lemonade, my laptop no longer has a functioning moniter, and it might be a while before I can get it fixed. I've updated "Homecoming," but everything else is going to have to wait.
Summary: Lupin returns to Grimmauld Place after the events of the night before at the Ministry of Magic. Sirius/Lupin romance, but not ridiculously so.
Great job. I really likes this line: "The demons that resided here did not belong to him, and their owner was gone." That gave me the shivers.
Summary: Malfoy attacks Hermione, so Ron steps in to rescue her.
*laughs self sick* That comment by Harry was just perfect.
Summary: She stands up to those who would tear her down. She laughs when others would cry. She sings when the rest of the world screams in anguish.
Amazing. Just...amazing. You are a wonderful writer, did you know that? I kind of like that you never tell us the girl's name--although I'm pretty sure it's Luna--because it made me think a lot more.
What's Really Inside Harry's Head (and other thoughts) by witchwannaB
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 30]
Summary: Harry's views on J.K. Rowling's books about him.
I loved this. I've always wondered what would happen in Harry was a real person, how he would view the books about him, and this was a very funny take on it.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing. I'm glad you liked it.
Summary: She didnít want to hear him reject her again. She didnít need that confirmation. She didnít need to know that he still didnít forgive her. She had to take the initiative. She had to end it before he could. One-shot.
That was awesome. I giggled like a maniac throughout the whole thing and now my roommate thinks I'm nuts. I hope you're satisfied. Seriously, though, great job.
Summary: What if in 2004 a post war Harry Potter were to learn there was a series of muggle books and films about him?
That was AMAZING. Such a cool idea...I loved it.
Summary: This is an insight into the lives of one elderly couple, Alice and Bernard Compton, who lived in a deserted region of east Scotland. What follows is an extraordinary account of one week in mid-March 1998... Quite possibly the strangest and most life-altering period of their lives.
That was so sweet and so beautiful. I guess at the time of that last letter, Harry would have already defeated Voldemort--which would explain the impression she had of him. I love the way you've taken a brief event in Harry's life and woven it into the lives of Muggles who have essentially no contact with the wizarding world. It's very artistic, very deft, and an alltogether beautiful piece of work.
Author's Response: Thank you, I love writing from a muggle perspective - It's easier to develop background and stuff. Your praise is much appreciated!
Summary: A distressed Sirius is kept awake by the fear his godson will ask him about girls.
That was so funny. And sweet. I love how Sirius is agonizing about it and Remus is just sitting there: "Calm down already, you're being a bit stupid..."
Summary: Harry just coming to terms with the death of Sirius on the train ride home, can't deal with the new attacks on his friends. Ginny, bound by her love won't give up on him.
That was really great. I loved all of the angst...:) I think you might want to use contractions more, though. Without them, the dialogue sounds a little stilted.

Awesome. This whole thing is just...awesome. The writing is incredible, the description... I see problems on the horizon, though.

Wow. Just....wow. This is really amazing. I love how you write Malfoy; you've turned him into a sympathetic character without changing the snarky nature that we all know and love. Great job--I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! :) I am glad you like my Malfoy. I admit that I have a great weakness for the Slytherin boy, but in my eyes he will never be redeemed so I try to write him as fateful as possible. The next chapter is in the works and will hopefully not take too long. Thanks again!
Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, a blond Weasley. It's Harry's sixth year. Voldemort is back, yet strangely quiet. A second prophecy. This is my version of what happens next. The whole book is written, along with all of year seven. I will post as fast as I can get the chapters past the moderators.
Story is now complete. Look for the sequel, I will be posting the first chapter tonight 6-2-05, and it usually takes 4-5 days for the mods to approve it. The title of the sequel is, Harry Potter and the Unlocked Mind.
I really liked this. I think your use of dialogue is really improving, and I especially liked the idea that Voldemort might have accidentally transferred some of his powers to Harry, YET AGAIN. I also loved that Harry just went ahead and told Voldemort about it. It was a wonderful gesture--full of bravado and very much something that Harry would do.
Author's Response: Hey: After reading your stories, I've been hoping you would stop by and take a look at my stuff.
Yes, I figured Harry needed to come out ahead on something from the whole department of mysteries fiasco, and the concept that Voldemort could no longer invade his mind seemed like a good thing to give Harry for me.
As for the idea of telling Voldemort he had screwed up. Yeah, Harry would do something like that, wouldn't he? At least once or twice.
Actually, the fact that at the end of book 5 Harry had not figured out how to keep Voldemort out of his mind, is why I think JKR is going to make this his shortest stay at Privet Drive so far. I mean come on. The kid has just spent the year having his mind invaded. He just got suckered into a trap that got his Godfather killed, and has yet to master a defense for what got him into that trap. And now, we are going to send him home to his aunt and uncle because it is safe. Give me a break, I tend to think it is the least safe place he can be. And like so many people point out, just because you are alive, does not mean you are living. Harry needs to be with people who care about him and I think Dumbledore is screwing up again by sending him to his aunts.
Anyways, thanks for stoping by and I hope you continue to read. I think my writing really improves in year seven. The story may or may not be as good, but the writing itself is better.
Summary: Originally written for the SIYE summer challenge. Hermione invites Harry, Ron, and Ginny to her house to attend a Muggle carnival. What happens when four kids who have been forced to live under adult pressures are suddenly allowed to act like kids?
Awww... I love that bit with Harry blushing about the ride, but not warning Ginny. Wonderfully devious.
Summary: Seventh year sequel to Power of Emotion. Harry is recovering from his captivity, but heís hiding how much itís effecting him. With his powers increasing, and Voldemort now aware of the prophecy, can Harry find the secret to destroying him before Voldemort learns of the existence of these ancient texts? Would this be HP fanfiction if it were that easy?
Awesome job. I love the way you've kept the characters' unique personalities through the story.
Wonderful chapter. That was a beautiful moment between Harry and Dumbledore, and I love how he and Ginny had an argument right after that--it was so believable. I can't wait to hear about the press conference; Fudge is going to be in for an earful
This is actually a review for the entire fic up to now-- You are an amazing writer, and I feel truly blessed that you spend time writing wonderful stories like this and all of your others. I've enjoyed this immensely so far.
God, I love your stories so much. That prophesy with Ron was intense. Wow.
Poor Harry. Poor Hermione, too. For some reason, I feel a lot sorrier for her.
Wow. Just...wow. You really deserve a long review in praise of this chapter, but I am speechless. This was simply brilliant--you've tied together everything that you've written since the beginning of The Power of Emotion and done so in truly magnificent style. I especially loved Cedric's line--so simple, and yet, so heartwrenching. Great job.
LOL I think Harry's got a bit of a problem with handling his liquor...
