Well, I don't know what to say. I'm in Australia. I'm 24 and I like the world of Harry Potter, obviously. Some stuff about me:
Fave HP Category:
Mystery. Good Mystery. Though my faves say otherwise. Hmm...
Fave HP Book:
Prisoner of Azkaban, though book 4 is a close second.
Fave HP Character/s:
I like reading about minor HP characters that could or have had serious moral dilemmas (or questionable allegiances... or are just mean sometimes heh):
- Regulus Black ---> Example: Fragmentary
- Minerva McGonagall ---> Example: Along Came Riddle
- Theodore Nott ---> Example: Control The Wind
- Tom Riddle (young) ---> Example: Riddle's War and Example: Take My Heart Away
- Barty Crouch Jr. ---> Example: Roses And Thorns
I have read some really interesting fics and I liked the way some of the characters were portrayed together, especially where they were in character:
- Percy/Pansy (seriously)
Stories In Progress:
I have a few stories in progress, but sticking to a story for more than 5 chapters is, I admit, a challenge. Nevertheless I'm really getting into one of my stories - a murder mystery. So for now I'm just writing chapter 4 for it and tying some plot twists around. Hopefully I'll be submitting soon :)
Oh this was an enjoyable read. I especially like Uncle Algie's attitude when he's trying to evoke magic in Neville. And it ended really well. Good work.
Mmm, very interesting. I like how you start it; hinting that he was once proud of his reflection. I like the last to lines esp. They wrap up the poem nicely.
Author's Response: Thank you! I wasn\'t sure how to start this one. And the ending I had thought of came to me instantly. thanks for reviewing!
Nicely written; good descriptions. I do think there were dialogue parts which seemed a bit odd though. One example is just after Hermione conjours up her Patronus and the Dementors retreat. The lines she says after that sound rushed. There was a Dementor attack but suddenly nobody's scared or freaking out and Hermione goes happily back to her Prefect duties. So that bit sounds rushed.
But in most parts you describe things very well. Great sentence structure. Enjoyable read :) Curious as to what happens next.
This was such an enjoyable read. I especially like how 'the real world' affected theirs (eg. fog being smoke and your typing causing an earthquake). In the end it was pleasantly ridiculous. Great! :)
Author's Response: I\'m glad how you liked that the author\'s world affects the characters\' world. i sometimes feel it\'s like that when I\'m writing. Thanks for the review!
I remember reading this a few days ago. Was too busy to review. So here it is! I liked it, so dark, evil. I love how you describe her struggle to be free from him. I also like the way you describe the diary and Tom - how he feels fresh air which means that the diary has been opened... really nicely described.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing! I\'m glad you enjoyed it.
wow that's really good. I enjoyed reading it and Theodore Nott is fast becoming one of my favourite characters. Well done :)
Author's Response: Thanks! I love Theodore, too. I knew he was someone I wanted to write about as soon as I saw the thing on JK Rowling\'s website about the scene she deleted from GOF about Theo and Malfoy.
wow... that was really sad. After reading it I don't think I could really imagine her situation any different from this... Lost and not really knowing how to get what she wishes, but still wishing... Now I can't imagine her any other way! Great one-shot.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it!
very nice, poetic, raw. You manage to make sense of his character, to explain his beliefs and goals very well.
Hello! I'm reviewing! Heh, obviously. I noticed your story ages ago and bookmarked it but only just checked it out. Sounds really interesting and I'm enjoying it so please do update! It reminds me of a story I read ages ago; it was called Remedial History and the main character was Theodore Nott. It had him in a situation similar to Blaise's where he had to choose sides. I think it's a very interesting idea to explore and I can't wait to see what you do with poor Blaise in the chapters to come.
This story is great! I love the mystery of the Six, and how they will somehow be drawn together. I really like how the characters' lives are all connected and every chapter is so much fun to read. I also just love Robert. He's such a fun, irritating character and I enjoy reading about him, always. So please make me really, really happy by updating!
Sparkles and daisies to you!! :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the sparkles and dasies!\r\nIt was kinda the plan to have everyone\'s lives woven together. Basically, it started out as two seperate plot lines: Hermione\'s story, and Cho\'s story. Gradually, as I introduced more and more complex characters and sub plots (like Draco and Myra, and Cassandra, and the Malfoys etc etc) everything started merging together becoming one big tangled crazy epic. \r\nI\'m glad you like Robert. As much as I love him too, after I\'ve just written one of his particularly sarcastic comments, I just want to punch him. Really hard. On the nose. Actually, I want to make Cho punch him, but (at the moment) she\'s restraining herself. \r\nI\'ve written most of the next chapter (which I may end up splitting into two because it\'s about twenty-five pages in my note book and still growing), but I still haven\'t edited it yet, or typed it up. Still, my school\'s about to break up, so I\'ll be able to write loads when I\'m on holiday.\r\nSee you soon with the next chapter!
Very nicely written. It's interesting how Mai only now sees that she and Oliver have a lot in common. You get her character across very well and she was a pleasure to read about :)
lol poor Roger. I get the feeling he does care, in his own weird way.
Great story! Neat idea! I really like your characterisation of Audrey, and for some reason I keep picturing her like Clara from Doctor Who, heh. Keeping an eye on it; hope there's updates soon!
Only the girl he loved hasn’t been lost to death like his father. She’s still walking and breathing and living in her parents’ house in Ottery St. Catchpole. She hasn’t spoken to him since Christmas Eve last year. She blames him for what she’s lost.
All of this means that for him, Christmas isn’t all that merry and bright this year. He doesn’t plan on celebrating it at all. But when his father appears as a ghost in his room on Christmas Eve, he’s swept along on a journey that may just change things for the better.
Cyril has been nominated for Best OC in the 2011 Quicksilver Quills awards. =D
Ooh what a cliffie!
Very interesting story. Nicely written, and Cyril is an interesting character to read about. Very much want to know what happens next. Will keep reading :)
Author's Response: I had way too much fun with cliffies during this story. And I'm glad you liked Cyril and were interested to see what happened next. Thank you for reading and reviewing. =D
