I love Harry Potter fan fiction, because it allows my imagination to run free!
I probably could be doing something more productive, but since I love to read and write, and hope to be an author one day, this doesn't seem like a whole waste of time!!!!
I love this site so much. It really let's me challenge my mind and see things in a whole new light.
Go fan fiction!!!!!

What made you think of something like the enchantment? It was perfect! And it totally pulled me in! Goodness, it makes me want my own person to share this Enhantment with!!!!!!!
I had been wondering when you would update... Yay!!!!!!!!! I know the first time around I have you a hard time on Lindi's character, but I want to say that this story is in my favorites, and I am thoroughly enjoying it. :) can't wait for more, and hopefully it will be soon, since it took a while to remember what happened...
Author's Response: Haha!! Don't worry about giving me a 'hard time' about Lindi. I'm sort of used to it. ;) Some people like her, and some can't stand her. At least you didn't tell me to kill her off or anything! LOL I really appreciated your review, as I do this one. I'm honored that you have it in your favorites. Thank you. And it should be soon. I thought it would be up by now, but had a family crisis. It's always something, so I won't promise anything, but as it is written, and beta'd expect it very soon. I hope it isn't disappointing. Thank you again, for reading and reviewing, Nagini Riddle. :)
Remus, buck up and either tell her or forget about her!
Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed this chapter! I especially loved Sirius in this chapter, and Lily was fun to read, too. And Lindi... I am in two minds about her. She is an idiot, but at the same time I want her to be happy with Remus. Will this end happily? (okay, don't spoil it for me. If it ends sad, I will still have loved the story!)
Author's Response: :) What does it say about my old brain that I can't remember what Sirius does or says in this chapter? Don't answer that!!! *sigh* I am taking too long to write this./captain obvious] I'm so glad you enjoyed it, though, and yeah, I can't tell you that or it would spoil it. Of course JKR destroyed any hope for a completely happily ever after didn't she? Poo on JKR!!!! Of course, we knew all that before we even started reading/writing Marauder stories, so we were warned weren't we? *reconsiders total AU* Thank you for reading and reviewing, Nagini Riddle. It helps keep me going. :)
Well, it took a while to read through the entire story, but I must say, you have me hooked! However, I realize that you have made Lindi a despicable character- at least to me she is. At firt I was lookin so much to the romance between Remus and her, but after reading so much about her, I feel like Remus deserves better. I came to really look forward to Lily and James' relationship more. Still, I feel like Remus should tell Lindi about his werewolf condition. But perhaps she doesn't deserve to hear about it. I am having a battle with myself over this!
Overall, this is a really well written story. I stayed up all night to finish it. I love the initial premise, and I hope that Remus ends up with a somewhat happy ending in your story.
I have to say, as a side note, that I find it funny that Remus ended up with Sirius' cousin. When you had Remus look at Tonk's picture earlier, I had to laugh. If only Remus knew what the future held. That's pretty much a good message for any one out there: that though things may look bleak now, our future can always be bright. The Harry Potter series really does end with that message.
So, I beg you to continue this story! Update soon! Don't give up on this!
Thank you for taking the time to write such an entertaining story. :)
Author's Response: Oh, dear...first off, thank you for such a thoughtful review. I'm so happy you are enjoying the story. I'm also glad you enjoyed the little Tonk's part. I must admit, I'm definitely NOT a Remus/Tonks fan, but I did like throwing that in there :) And I love the message you got out of it. Very optimistic...lovely... But to Lindi...oh dear...I certainly did not mean to make her despicable, though I know some people can't stand her! LOL I'm sure Remus does deserve better, but of course, no one is good enough for him! But truly, I find Lindi rather pitiful and ...well,rather than try to defend her, I'll leave it to the story and you to decide in the end how you feel about her. I long ago realized that I saw her differently than many readers and that I often misjudge how readers will take her or her actions, though I did warn a long time ago that she might do something to make people who did like her wish they'd never recommended her for an award. Ha! Thank you, again, Nagini Riddle, for taking the time to read my story and leave me this lovely review.
How sweet! I loved the cat! And I'm glad you decided to share such memories with us. :)
Those darn boys will have to keep waiting too, right? *grins wickedly*
This made me laugh! What an uncomfortable situation, and I cannot believe how fast do many authors jump to the conclusion that Dumbledore is a meddlesome matchmaking fool! But I love it anyways!
Poor Ron!!!!!!!!!! That's all I can really say after reading this. I love this story, though! What a great series!
Wow! What a great idea! I had fun reading it, although I am still a Severus/Lily fan. :) great job!
Oh my goodness! I want to read more! Great job! I feel so bad for Merope. I wish her life had turned out better. :(
Teehee! I love Rita Skeeter and I thoroughly enjoyed the newspaper articles, and how they kept changing. :) ingenious.
Hmm... What an intriguing piece of literature! I'm still allowing its message to sink it.
Great job! ;)
Squeal!!!!! What a wonderful story! I loved the hysteria and am jealous that you have a very imaginative husband to work with for your stories!
Great job! I hope that this story keeps continuing and continuing and continuing...
Eep! I loved it! Now if only someone dared Severus to kiss Lily... :)
...Winter Snows Holiday Challenge # 3: A KISS FOR THE AGES...
A fairy-tale and scenic day brewed into a cauldron of war and death. Yet this is the day that will sing her song and change her life forever.
Enter the world of two friends, soon to be lovers!!
My first fic on muggle-net! REVIEW! --
one raffish raconteuse
So sweet! I especially love the quote you used.
Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance-Non Canon 2007, 2008, and 2009. In 2010 mods changed the rules (they got tired of the same fics being nominated ^_~) so no more QQ hopes, but that's okay. No proof is needed that Draco/Ginny = love.
* Written before the HBP, this tale presents an alternate sixth year in which Dumbledore lives, Draco is more than a foil to Harry, and Blaise Zabini is a girl. I hope readers who ship Draco/Ginny will enjoy the story which includes dancing with faeries, Celtic and Norse mythology, school holidays in London and Spain, and loads of fantasy and romance. "Is this a kissing book?" (to quote the Princess Bride) Yes, it is. *
(Warnings were added for safety, due to brief allusions in later chapters, not graphic content.)
Omg!!!! I loved this entire story! It took me a while to finish, but I can see why it kept winning all those years! :) I love the Princess Bride and I also love the Enchanted Forest Chronicles (Dealing with Dragons is the first book). I laughed so many times! What a beautiful style! I'm curious though: what happened to Snape and Lorelei? Did they all live happily ever after?
Good- no, magnificent job! What an inspirational story. :D
Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much for this amazing review! I'm sorry I'm so late in replying. Snape and Lorelei's story is Simply Irresistible over on another site that starts with fanfiction and ends with .net. It was one of my first stories and I polish a few chapters now and then, but never got around to posting it on MNFF.
I feel so blessed to get to read all about these two! :) although it is not Christmas right now, I'd still like to say Merry Christmas!!!!!!!! May your days always be filled with love and happiness.
Written as a Term Challenge: Holidays Abroad submission for Slytherin.
Great job! My goodness, I fell in love with this story! I really enjoyed the characterization of these two characters. I think my favorite part was when he renounced being a witch- broke her wand, dumped the potion. It just shows that she finally realized not everything could be solved by magic, and all it had done was ruin her pitiful life. I felt so bad for Merope! Maybe one day, an AU fic will make its way onto this website that lets Merope get a happy ending... :)
Author's Response: Wow, I had almost forgotten about this story. Thanks so much for the response. It means a lot that people still read these old things... :)
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved Tom Riddle! I would have totally fallen to his charm! Nicely written, and I'm glad Minerva didn't fall for it, otherwise I'd have to fight her for him! *chuckles*
Oh! Goodness, one day, I will write a story that puts Lily and Snape together!
Great story! I really enjoyed the raw emotions written. And I loved how you wrote Dumbledore. Cheers!
I had my suspicions that this was Merope, but I think it was genius to not use names until the very end. Great job! I enjoyed it, even if it was a sorrowful ending.
