Wow... so One Last Golden Day won Runner-up for a Quicksilver Quill! Thanks so much to those that gave it a nomination. It's one of those stories I've always been rather proud of even if it didn't get alot of attention at the time I was posting it.
Feel free to poke around and drop me a comment.

Haha, yours is the exact same path as mine so far! How interesting to see the differences in how we approached everything =D When did you post this? Are we allowed to add them to the queue??
Summary: Hermione is jealous that everyone around her can have fun, while she's built up an image of a bookworm. Can Ron help her break out of her shell? Ron-Hermione oneshot.
Aw, a very sweet and lovely story. Not cliche and not too fluffy. Wonderful job =)

Congrats on your first fanfic! You're off to a very good start, nice flow and Harry and Hermione were in character. Keep writing, I'll keep an eye out for future chapters =)
Author's Response: why thank you! ch 2 isnt far off, its mostly written, just needs to go to my beta. im really glad you enjoyed it!
Summary: Harry Potter sleeps restlessly the night before his final confrontation with Voldemort. An unusual vision propels him through a poignant dreamscape where he encounters all those he has loved and lost. As Harry follows a strange guide on a journey both emotional and spiritual, he learns more about the power the Dark Lord knows not, and comes to finally realize how his destiny rests on the power of love.
Wow, I'm glad I inspired you to write this lovely, unique piece with that random "follow the butterflies" hidden video on the Potter Puppet Pals site, lol! I think this was absolutely lovely, Gina. The butterfly is a symbol of rebirth and transition, and I think it was a very clever device to use in Harry's progress of discovering the secrets of love and life. I really loved the end when the butterfly became black, and Harry was faced with himself. I think overcoming the boundary of your own doubts and limitations is truly the hardest hurdle to pass in life, so I liked that it was how you ended his journey. I found only one problem, I think anyway I may have misread. In the part with James and Lily, Lily said we choose twice, and I think it should have been chose, as she is referring to the past.
Excellent job dear! *hugs*
Author's Response: Hi Ashley! Yes, I suppose I should thank you for sending me these crazy links, although I\'m not sure they are all as inspiring as the Potter Puppet Pals. ;) I\'m so excited that you came to read this story! I\'m really happy with how it turned out - it\'s not what you would expect, is it? I went back and fixed that stupid past tense verb, thanks for pointing it out so quick. ;) I\'m very glad you liked this story, particularly the bit at the end - thank you for the wonderful review!! ~Gina :)
Summary: It was as if he was confined in a dark box, though a small stream of light illuminated his past. That light reminded him of how his old life was just beyond his reach. All he had to do is get over her to escape the depression. But trying was like grasping dark smoke with your fingertips; he couldn’t.
A story of heartbreak and a lonely soul. Songfic to Here Without You. One-shot.
I'm so proud of you dear. Your style and voice have truly grown since your first one-shot, and I'm happy I could play even a small part in this lovely development from fanfiction dabbler to true writer. Keep it up, Sarah! I look forward to seeing what you do next =)
Author's Response: Thank you, Ashley! I\'m really glad you\'ve been with me since the start. You\'re the best! *shows off awesome beta to other reviewers!* :D
