Hi, Hazel here.
These days I'm much more active on my livejournal and fanfiction.net accounts than I am here - feel free to drop by and say hi! - but I'm still archiving some of my fanfiction here. It's a bit slow, because HP isn't my ff priority at the moment, but I'm working on All for All and its sequel, provisionally titled Lightning Clan. Hermitknut is my username almost everywhere, so do seek me out if you'd like to!
I'm also looking for any concrit you care to give of All for All - some of it was written a few years ago and I'd love a critical opinion on it. Thanks!
Summary: St Mungoís is a very busy place. And mistakes do happen. Try explaining that to Severus and Hermione.
*laughs* Good fun. Love the punchline! And all the mix-ups were fun too :)
Summary: "Listen to me, Kreacher," He whispers hoarsely, kneeling, door open to howling wind behind him, "I want you to do exactly as I say..."
Maybe he's just a kid with a problem he can't hide. Regulus.
This is interesting; a good take on Regulus, I really like it. Definitely new head-canon. I was glad I found this, I decided to look at some of your other stories after I read Slaughter-Dew.
Summary: The first time it happens, he is fourteen. Sitting at the Gryffindor table, Peter thinks of murder. (What's wrong with him?)
[Peter Pettigrew, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and the logic of fives. Dark, some disturbing imagery. One shot.]
This is stunning. It's not a direction I'd have thought to take Wormtail in, but you've really done it very well. The smaller sections mean it's light without being meaningless. And the ending is excellent!
Summary: Remus and Sirius share an awkward cup of tea.
One shot set during GOF.
This is lovely. Very intense and stark to begin with, and the warmer ending is very smoothly done. Nice fic :)
Summary: James gives Lily a letter on the last day of sixth year:
I’m going to be perfectly honest with you—I’m not that good with feelings. I usually just ask Remus; he’s pretty good with that sort of thing. But I can’t ask Remus to write this letter for me, so you’re just going to have to bear with me while I set the record straight before the school year ends and I forget how to describe my feelings about things between us. [2000 reads! thanks guys!]
This is really nice :) You've got just the right amount of awkwardness in there without it being painful, and I like the way you've written James. :) Off I go to read the sequel...
Summary: “But I want to go home,” whispered the girl. “I don’t want to fight anymore”
Not everyone who fought in the Battle of Hogwarts wanted to be there, and not everyone survived. This is the story of one of those people.
*shivers* This is lovely and awfully sad. You wove Charlotte's story into what we already know very well; I'd never thought about what it'd be like to be a first-year during Deathly Hallows and get that kind of first impression!
Really great story.
Summary: An unexpected mission has Sirius teasing Remus about his standards--which leads Remus to do something even more unexpected. (Contains sexual innuendo--but with a title like that, what else would you expect?)
*giggles* This is sweet and fun! And all the banter is spot on. The incest joke particularly made me laugh :D
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I I had so much fun with the banter, so your review means a lot to me. :D
Summary: Sequel to A Different Kind of Love: Lily's response to James' letter saying he loves her.
Part of me wants to say, please, let’s just be friends and forget what we’ve written to each other—these moments are too precious to risk spoiling them. But I know enough of the world to know that time is a one-way street. Forward is the only direction we can go.
*grins* Nice follow-up. Lily was just as believable as James, and I liked the complexity of her answer and the references to Snape and Sirius.
