I am absolutely in love with your writing style it is amazing, i thought you to much older and wiser than 19. From your writing abilities I thought you where maybe in your 30 somethings. I do not mean this as an insult rest asured, I only find that the insight and thought that you have put into this story makes it seem that you have experienced life, love and loss. Your knowledge of the characters minds is simply astounding and I don't think that JKR could have done a better job of it herself. This is the top of my favourites I am uterly dumbfounded It is a beautiful, beautiful story.

 

Red by rockinfaerie

Summary: James Potter's once privileged and sheltered life alters dramatically as Lord Voldemort increases his stronghold on Great Britain. While a rational but brilliant Transfiguration teacher, a grieving socialite mother, a star-gazing, forest-dwelling centaur, and a host of other characters contemplate the vicious and constant conflict between Good and Evil, James embarks on a dangerous life fuelled by passion, love, anger and blood...

Things can only get redder.

A deeply downtrodden person sits at her desk surrounded by crumpled parchment. Deeply disturbed at the happenings of the last few days and anxiously awaiting the reply that must come. She worries about the great horned owl she has just sent will it return with aid? Or will it be shot down on sight.

The Mentor was sitting at his/her desk, it had been a long day. The Fan fic writers had always had horrible grammar and there run on sentences would drive her batty. As she bent low to add another parchment to the to many corrections pile, which happened to sitat the bottom of her/his garbage can. She heard a flutter of wings as a great horned owl swooped down into her/his office. She unraveled the letter quickly and hopefully, casting her eyes at the first three words she new it was going to be a long day. She sat down at her desk and began to read.

For the past 3 days I have been diligently working on a fic, My first fic ever. I have attempted about 5 hundred times to submit this fic when I realized it was my formatting at approximately 4 am I finally got it across but this morning it has disappeared from my archive.

I don't know how to get a hold of anyone in here and decided this was my best course of action. Please help me, It really is driving me quite and irreversibly crazy at the moment and I cannot rest until I have overcome this problem.

Author's Response: The great horned owl returns... a scribbled reply tied to its right leg...

Ok... so you submitted a story and it just disappeared? That\'s happened to me before - I know the feeling!

If it happened in the past few days, I don\'t think the mods were accepting fics (what with Book Seven and all), so your story may have disappeared simply because the queue was closed... I would strongly recommend saving your work in an email account - using a gmail or hotmail draft, say - so that you can retrieve it at any stage, and so that you will still have a copy in such cases as these... (an alternative suggestion is that your computer simply logged out the moment you submitted it)

If it\'s a case of your story simply disappearing from your author account, the story is possibly still being viewed for submission - I don\'t know much about the background workings of this site, to be honest... but the fic could resurface. If you wish to inquire with a moderator on this issue, I\'m sure you can find someone to contact on the homepage, or help section.

If the fic has indeed disappeared without a trace - and though you may find this soooo unbelievably frustrating, you may have to rewrite the fic... the words and structure will all still be in your head, at least, and you might even find that you prefer the revised version - I speak from experience. Then make sure to save a copy of it somewhere, so that you can re-submit if necessary.

Sorry I can\'t offer any further help - just continue to persevere - learn from these horribly annoying technological errors - if you love writing, you won\'t let them get in your way! Best of luck!

Thank you for the advice, do you realize that you were the only person to see that my snippet was an actual call for help and not just a prank :).

I love your story, so far it my favorite Fic of James and Lilly. I can't wait for the next chapter, you have their characters so perfectly done.

Lilly is exactly how I had imagined her. So is James and Lilly's relationship, the love-hate thing they have going on coincides perfectly with the book :).
I love the touch you made with Lucius and James being such close friends, it makes the fact that Draco tried to befriend him first off more rationalized.

Please keep the chapters coming, I love your work :)

The ever grateful

Lobena Bricatta

Author's Response: No problem - hope publishing is a bit easier now! Thanks for your feedback - I really love writing characters - and watching them grow (though sadly these aren\'t technically mine!)... as for the Lucius/James connection - it\'s just something I had imagined to create some dramatic scenes early on, but Book 7 never dismissed the idea, so I can keep it going - and I hadn\'t even thought about Draco\'s attempts and how they could be related - excellently spotted!

 

Summary: Remus Lupin is invited to James Potter and Lily Evans' long expected wedding after not having any contact with James for two years. As Remus reads the invitation, he discovers he must find a date to tag along with him to one of the most important days of his best friend's life...

Blind Winter by Lurid

You've never actually seen snow?
Snow is the most beautiful thing, it's what makes winters worth while.
As a child we would walk up the largest hill side in our town and stare out over the entire frozen village and world.
It looks like a million diamonds have fallen and are covering the whole world over.
However Blizzards are only beautiful from the inside of your house sipping hot cocoa sitting near the fireplace, unless your keen on getting frostbite.

I love your story its very insightful you've done an amazing job with the way Lilly thinks. I
I should like to read more of your work. :)

Author's Response: Hee! Yeah, here in Australia, on the East Coast we don\'t get snow :) Inland and further down they do, but not where I live. I\'ve onyl been to the snow twice, and it\'s all slushy and melting and icy, not powdery. The movies lie.

And I really liked your review. Thanks!

Would it be possible to entice you to expand your story, you have such a vivid imagination and are extremely descriptive.

I wouldn't be surprised to see your works published, have you ever thought of becoming an author? I would most certainly read your works.

I love this story and would very much like it if you were to continue with its telling. I know it is a one shot but I could see this expanding into an amazing story.

If you do not wish to do so I would understand completely but I advise you to reread this breathtaking chapter and see if you would honestly like to give up on it.

You are truly gifted. I look foreward to reading any further work. Please be sure to let me know if you have any new work please contact me :)

Author's Response: I\'m not entirely sure what you\'re getting at, I\'m afraid. If this is a plea for help, why is it in the format of a review and (I happened to noticed) repeated in the reviews section for one or two other stories? If it\'s randomness, then it\'s hardly a good use of your time, and is frankly a nuisence. If it\'s .... actually, that\'s all I can think that it might be. Would you care to let me know what exactly you\'re talking about?

Look i tried to make my call for help entertaining so as to not get in trouble. I'm honestly looking for help and as I wrote in the letter I need it badly I don't exactly no whats happening but I cant get to my story?

Author's Response: Okay, thanks. So, you submitted it, but it kept getting rejected, and then you realised it was your formatting, but it had disappeared from your archive? Okay. My advice would be ... uh ... go to the \"staff\" section and contacting a mod, possibly the one who has been dealing with your fics so far. Because, though I understand how distressing all this must be, I\'m not really qualified to do anything, and wouldn\'t know what to do if I was. Please don\'t think I\'m being mean - I know how it feels for your stuff to be rejected, believe me, and I totally sympathise. But I\'ve no idea how to help.

I just came across this site a week ago and I really don't know how to use it properly. My most sincere thank you and once again I'm sorry the last thing I wished to do was anger anybody

Author's Response: Honestly, it\'s fine. They should have signed the rejection emails with their name. If they didn\'t, I would reccomend Vindictus Viridian, who has been extremely kind and helpful to me in the past, just explain the situation clearly and in detail, and say that you only just found the site, so don\'t really understand how it works. To contact, just go to the \"staff\" section, find who you want to contact, and click on their name. This will take you to their bio, where there is a \"contact\" link. Then write what you want to say. Remember - clear, detailed and polite. =D

A Hypothetical Harry Potter Book 7 by Abif
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 51]

Summary: The story begins a few weeks after the end of Half-Blood Prince, when Harry is back at the Dursleys' once again, waking up Uncle Vernon from his favorite golfing dream. On escaping from the Dursleys', he finds that Hogwarts is open again and decides to return there after all, but only to find himself face-to-face with both Snape and Voldemort much sooner than he thinks! Through the course of the story, Harry will meet the most mysterious DADA teacher yet, learn the truth of the misunderstanding that took place on the lightning-struck tower, and discover that there really is a little more to Petunia that meets the eye, all the while with references to the amorphous Deathly Hallows.


This is meant to be a humorous rendition of what could happen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It is intended to be a parody rather than a serious prediction of what happens next.

Author's Response: It seems to me that they rejected it for some reason if it disappeared from your archive. Hopefully you have kept a copy somewhere, because they probably deleted what you sent off. Probably they have sent you an e-mail stating the reason why. I\'d recommend checking your mail and also checking the Submission Rules and so on. Good luck.

Author's Response: What it sounds like is that you need a beta reader. A beta reader goes through your fic and fixes things like grammar and punctuation. Most stories really need betas in order to be accepted here at MNFF. I know mine certainly did! Without my betas, my fics wouldn’t have stood a chance at being accepted (in case any of them are reading – a huge shout out and many hugs to y’all). If you don’t feel comfortable getting a beta reader, may I suggest that you have a friend or family member read over your fic several times. It could do a world of good!! Good luck! PS – don’t feel too bad about rejection letters. I know that I have received more rejections than acceptances. But that only makes you feel that much better when a fic is accepted!! :D
