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.
I think that was your best chapter so far. You have such a delicate touch with the characters--I can just see Percy showing up at the funeral and expecting everyone to abandon Harry, just as I can see then all telling him off. That was very satisfying, by the way. I love that Harry finally managed to talk to Mrs. Weasley, but you can still tell that the hurt hasn't really gone away with the way he snaps at Dumbledore. I especially like the dynamics with Fudge, and I can't wait to see how he'll react to Harry once Voldemort's gone. Knowing Harry, it won't be anything like what Fudge expects. Anyway, I guess I'm just trying to say--great job.
Now, that was just not fair. I love the way you write Hermione. It's so obvious that she's tearing her hair out trying to help Harry, and she's only making everything worse.
I love this chapter. Great job...Although Ron and Hermione are driving me up a wall.
*cries* That was so sad. Wonderful, but so very sad. God, if this is Harry's summer vacation, I can't imagine what Hogwarts will be like for him...
That was great. Bizarre, but great.
That was HYSTERICAL. I especially liked this line: Harry shook his head, trying to make sense of this new information. “So you founded a secret Harry Potter fan club and were thrown out because you wouldn’t steal my underwear?” I can just imagine him saying that in a completely bemused manner...nice job.
That was very sweet.
wow. I love hearing about things from Petunia's POV--it's so rarely done, and so hard to do well. Wonderful job. I can't wait to read the next chapter.
YAY! First review!
I really like the way this is written. It's just how I would imagine the world after Voldemort's defeat, and I like that you've gone to the trouble of actually creating an American school instead of just dragging the Americans into Hogwarts. I am curious as to why Harry, Ron, and Hermione are all living together, though, considering that they're all in their mid-twenties by now. Maybe you could go into a bit of detail on that at some point?
Altogether a good job. 10/10.
Author's Response: thank you for a really nice review! :) Don't worry, I amgoing to explain much more about Harry's whole situation in chapter four. But thanks again!
...Poor Harry. I can just imagine him reacting to that situation like that.
I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: thank you! I've written about a fourth of chapter three, but I'm going to work on it more tonight. I'm so glad I got another review!
That's so sad--wonderful, but so sad. You have amazing imagery in both chapters, and I can't wait for the next one.
Author's Response: thanks for the great review! ive alredy started the next chapter and its kinda sad too(hint hint)....but after that the mood should start to pick up.....
That was really great. I love these missing moment fics, and I think you did a wonderful job of getting inside Lavendar's head.
I would really love to see your take on the other characters' first impressions of Harry.
Author's Response: Thanks! I also think it would be interesting to explore who was thinking what when Harry arrived... glad you think so too!
Awww...fluffiness. In a good way.
*snickers* poor Harry...
Author's Response: Yeah...what's fanfiction without a little fluff, eh?
That was wonderful. It's hard to imagine pulling off this particular scene with anything resembling classiness, but you certainly did it.
Author's Response: Wow, thanks! This was a really hard story to write because of that very issue. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
