Summary: Various HP characters get drunk or high on sugar/caffeine/whatever (as long as it's legal!). Insanity follows. No one's in character. Very random.
That was so freaking FUNNY! I'm ROTFL. Great job!
Hilarious! Fantastic stuff, I can't stop laughing! Wish I had a Sugar Potion...
Summary: A Last Battle fic. Harry lives up to his prophetic destiny. The question is, will he actually be doing the living?
That was written really well...I hated that Harry died, but I think you did a good job explaining why he had to die.
Summary: Lowbrow. High-concept. Medium rare.
Magorian's back, and he's here to stay!
A/N: All right, who stole all my exclamation points!?
Wow. You're hilarious, you know that?
I just stumbled across this WONDERFUL fic, and I'm laughing rather hard right now.
Monty Python is the BEST!
And the thing about Dumbledore and the Force... I was in hysterics. XD
Summary: Post-OOTP. When Voldemort attacks Harry and Dumbledore comes to fight him off, Harry accidentally casts a strange spell that turns Dumbledore and Voldemort into 16 year olds-Harry's age. Now both of them must live with Harry and the Dursleys...Please R&R!
Extremely funny! I loved this story, it was very original.
Summary: "Be careful what you wish for," the old adage goes. So what happens when Hogwarts is under a spell where what you say is what you get?
Chappie 14 is UP! And while it is the end, let us not be sad, but instead read the insanity that has driven so many to review and nearly wet themsleves with delight.
Ha ha! I loved the Harry-is-a-penguin idea! Really funny!
Author's Response: Well, everyone loves penguins, and everyone loves Harry Potter...
Summary: A look into the life of Voldy's pet snake, Nagini.
(Cue to my recently acquired film showing a wasted Voldy trying to dress himself. “Damn these one-legged pants!” he yells.)
. . . Made me choke on my Double-Stuff Oreo. (Luckily my family knew the Heimlich Manuever and saved me.)
Wormtail in a Speedo?????? *ahem*
But, other than that, this is hilarious!
Author's Response: Sorry about making you choke! lol There ain\'t enough \"Ewwws!\" to properly describe Wormtail in a Speedo. ;-) Glad you liked it, though!
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
You know, I've reviewed this before, but I feel I need to add a few things.
First of all, never have I read a story that characterises Tom so well. It's somewhat creepy how well you get inside his (twisted) psyche.
Also, this feels like canon to me. I don't know if it's because you wrote it so well, or because everyone was so in-character, or what, but it feels like canon. I want it to be canon, in an odd way.
Oh, and the other day I saw a ceramic black rose in a gift shop, immediately thought of this - and burst out sobbing. That's how deeply your story has affected me.
I've always believed that Tom couldn't love - that he was too inhuman. But something about your story makes me want to take my belief and chuck it out the window. It's written that well.
Your descriptions of everything, throughout the story, are flawless. And now that I've reread it, I've seen some of the subtle foreshadowings you slipped in - for example, how Dumbledore thought the sunset would be "the last one that mattered." (*paraphrases*)
I don't know... I've tried to write Tom, but I can't seem to nail down his character as firmly as you have. And I've tried to write Tom romances, but they're just not believable. You're truly talented.
My only small nitpick, is, actually, not the Masquerade Ball. My nitpick is when Tom does his monologue type-things with Hermione. I know he's a genius, and I know that he's supposed to have this talent for speechmaking, but some of what he said sounded almost *too* good to be in actual conversation - for example, when he described the "March mist" thing, in terms of Hermione disappearing in that way. (But that's just me.)
Some lines from this, I think, will haunt me forever. Some examples of these are I'm scared to death that this isn't real, and, of course, Even in his death, the rose had still not wilted.
I'd put something like "fantastic job" here as a closer, but no adjectives that I can think of do this justice.
(By the way, this is my third reread, and - even though I knew how it would end - you still had me sobbing on my chocolate chip cookie and groping for the Kleenex.)
I just finished reading this... and I'm sobbing as I write this. I love how you showed that, in the end, Tom had always loved Hermione. The last line, in particular, is so beautiful... "Even in his death, the rose had still not wilted." It's amazing enough to think that Tom Riddle could love, but it is both terrible and beautiful to think that Lord Voldemort, killer of so many, could love.
Great job writing this.

ah! PLEASE get the next chapter up soon! i need to know the ending. :)
Summary: Harry, Ron, and Hermione make a trip to Godric's Hollow to visit the Potters' graves. There, Harry speaks to his parents for the first time, and in so doing, discovers that the dead are never truly lost. (One-shot. Bring your kleenex.)
This is absolutely beautiful... Merlin, I'm getting the keyboard all wet, I'm crying so hard.
I loved the line:
Alone. The word seemed to hang in the dead calm like a shadow.
And the last lines:
As the three sat in silent reflection, a pair of unseen spectators gazed upon the trio.
What a lovely family portrait, they thought.
Are the unseen spectators supposed to be Lily and James? (That's what I thought, anyway.)
Now my keyboard is positively soaked. I've never technically lost a parent... well, kind of... it's hard to explain, actually, and I'm not going to go into all the details.
What I'm trying to say in this (probably confusing) review is that you captured Harry's emotions in ways I never thought that words could. And for that, my tears and I thank you.
Summary: What happens when Dumbledore has his latest "brilliant" idea, to start an advice column, and call it 'Dear Dumby'? Letters from some of our favourite Hogwarts students, some of our not so favourite Hogwarts students, some not even Hogwarts students at all, and, of course, lots of madness!
Pre-HBP for obvious reasons!
Nominee for the Best Humour Award in the Quicksilver Quill Awards! Many thanks to all who voted for it!
I figured it out! I figured out what you did with Voldemort's penname!
*does happy dance*
You used an anagram of VOLDEMORT and then rearranged the letters to spell LMVDROOTE, which is an acronym of Lovely Man, Very Definitely, Really, Obviously, Opposed To Evil.
Am I right?
P.S. This is hilarious!
P.P.S. 700th reviewe! Woot!
Author's Response: You ARE right!!! *APPLAUDS/CELEBRATES/GIVES COOKIES* I have been waiting SO LONG for someone to get that - I\'d almost forgotten! So thank you and praise for getting that, and the 700th review! Well done!!
Summary: The night of Lily and James's death. As Lily watches the Dark Lord destroy everything in her life she has ever cared for, she realizes that she must explain to Harry why she can't be there for him forever, and make sure he knows that "Mummy loves you..."
OK, I'll admit it: I cried. Hard. But it was a REALLY good story.
Summary: The war is over, and Voldemort is dead, but the aftermath isn't what Harry had intended it to be. Amid feelings he himself cannot explain, he flees to Muggle London. Can he overcome his inner demons and lead something other than the shadow of a life his existence has become?
Actually the third story in the Epilogues story arc. If you have yet to do so, please read Right Here and One Good Day prior to reading this. Upon completion of this story, you can move on to Epilogues Part II.
I thought the scene with the grave would be the saddest thing in this chapter.
I thought wrong.
Harry looking in on the scene at the Burrow just made me cry harder, and by the time we saw Ginny and her "Happy Birthday, Harry!" episode, I was sobbing as hard as she was. My family thought I was dying.
I listened to "Hate Me" during this chapter, and it does fit perfectly. I also listened to "Hurt" by Johnny Cash, and though the lyrics don't fit as much, the overall tone of the song was a perfect fit.
I'll be sure to keep reading, and I'll be sure to keep reviewing, too.
Author's Response: Yeah, Hate Me was absolutely perfect for this chapter. absolutely. Thank you so much, I really am glad you got an emotional reaction to this, it means a lot, particularly this chapter which was intended to be heartbreaking. It\'s kind of funny because you\'re not the only one that has touched on trying to explain your reaction to family members or something similar, and well, I put up warnings in Parts II and III for sexual content, and violent content, but now I\'m wondering if maybe I shouldn\'t put up a warning for some of these stories kinda like, WARNING: You may have to explain to your family why you are crying at the computer screen. sigh. Anyway, thank you again, sorry it took so long to get around to this, but I\'ve been trying to keep up with the reviews for the latest chapter of Part III, so there you go. Thank you!
OK, now my keyboard's just sopping wet. If it short-circuits, I blame you. ;)
Gah. I never expected Simon to be a Squib... nor did I expect Harry to apologise to Voldemort. I love the way you're portraying him, I love that he's going home, and I love this fic.
You're an amazingly talented writer.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. Don\'t worry, I\'ve had lots of similar keyboard complaints, and to this day not received any receipt for new ones, so apparently the keyboards are holding up! Simon a Squib, yes, and, I think you\'ll be happy to know that there\'s more of him to come here and later on. As for Harry and Voldemort, that stems from a single part in HBP where Dumbledore asks harry if he feels sorry for Voldemort. This was my answer to that, this guilt that he would eventually have to feel upon killing Voldemort. I know it\'s out of canon by now, but that\'s just how I saw it. I really liked that scene, it just really struck me as particularly peaceful and calm and I just really loved it. Thank you so much again!
That was absolutely beautiful. I'm crying again, but then, I always cry at weddings. *rolls eyes*
I loved the detailed descriptions of Hermione and Ron's attire, specifically the concept of the "vines."
And Ron's vows were amazing. They were just so... Ron.
Same with Hermione's. It would figure that she would go into a big ol' speech for a wedding vow -- that's the Hermione we all know and love.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, yeah, I really struggled with those vows, I kinda had the shape of it, but it took some time to pin down. Again, thank you very much.
How could I have forgotten to mention the song I listened to????
During this chapter I listened to "Oh My My My" by Taylor Swift. I'm not the biggest fan of romantic fluff songs, but that one is PERFECT for this chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks to the wonders of the internet, I was able to listen to that song, and I\'ll say, typically not my cuppa, but a decent choice. Then I got sucked into atching a couple Flyleaf videos, but, yeah, nevermind. Again, thank you
Fluff + Angsty Yelling = Spectacular
Yeah... I think that about sums it up for me.
Onto part 2!
Author's Response: Yup, pretty much. Thank you very much, and good luck with Part II, it\'ll take a bit.

Really good, please keep writing!
Summary: What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.
RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!
A few things for you to consider:
1. I printed this out and gave it to some of my RL friends who are too lazy to find it on here themselves.
2. They got sent to the office in History for "disturbing the class with their laughter."
3. I also got sent to the office.
4. We very narrowly escaped detention by having the principal read your fic.
5. They laughed. Hard.
6. For a video we have to do for Englishfest (this reading thinggggg), we're doing a spoof of a truly terrible book called "Shabanu" and making a "Shaba-Spoof." For "Shaba-Blew," we are going to explode a toaster.
7. Will we die if we explode said toaster? We're going to do it outside... and, hey, maybe I can get the video onto YouTube!
8. You're hilarious, Schmergo. Truly hilarious. There isn't a word enough to describe your hilarious-ness.
9. This was a LOOOOOOONG list.
Author's Response: Hahahahahahahahahahahaha, are you serious! If so, that is awesome beyond belief! Did the principal really read it?
As for the toaster thing, I understand that can be pretty unpredictable. If you search \"Toaster strawberry poptart\" on YouTube, you can see some of the madness yourself. I\'m lucky enough to say I\'ve never read Shabanu!
