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.
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.
*laughs self sick* That comment by Harry was just perfect.
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.
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.
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.
That was AMAZING. Such a cool idea...I loved it.
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!
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..."
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!
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.
Awww... I love that bit with Harry blushing about the ride, but not warning Ginny. Wonderfully devious.
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...
