Let's see. I'm a 25-year old workaholic who spends her days running a retail store and dealing with interesting customers. I enjoy reading, writing, sleeping and spending time with my friends and family.


My guilty pleasures consist of RPG, fanfiction and romance novels (the non-trashy kind of course!). Oh and Diet Dr. Pepper. I really love a good Diet Dr. Pepper.

Instead of peace and harmony, Voldemort's fall has created a world of uncertainty and chaos. The Death Eaters are dwindling, waging a hopeless battle without the Dark Lord to lead them. The Order is scattered and unalert. From the shadows, a new group of wizards is emerging. Without any apparent purpose, they are fighting a silent war, unknown to the public. When Ginny learns of their existence, she finds herself involuntarily pulled into their hidden world.

Absolutely wonderful chapter.  I, obviously, am still in love with the part where Ginny kicks Harry in the shin.  Definitely my favorite scene so far.  I laughed for a good couple of minutes.  Great job.

Hey Kev,

Awesome chapter.  So sorry it took me so long.  The last month of school is horrid.  Amazing job!

Chapter 23: The Circular Study
Plastic Dementors by Jess [Mid Teens]

In some cultures, it is said that each time a picture is taken of someone, a bit of their soul is removed. After being in the limelight for so long, Harry Potter is apt to agree.

This was brilliant.  I truly enjoyed it.  The angst in it was overwhelming and I really loved the ending.  Great job!

Wow, that was amazing. I absolutely adore the diary entry. The bit about the snuggling snow bunnies was quite hilarious. And poor Ginny. Hermione is always trying to take things into her own hands and make things better, isn't she? I can't wait to read the next chapter! :)

Chapter 1: Any Chance of Us
Not Yet Discouraged by Seren [All Ages]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 6]
I have harboured secrets of theirs for many years. Harry Potter and his friends were not the first to cross my path, not the first youngsters to take destiny into their own hands. I remember them all, but you want to know about what these children did.
A young boy named Roger learns the true tale of the Last Battle from the most unexpected of sources- the one who knew the heroes best.

This story was absolutely fabulous.  You captured my attention from the beginning and kept it until the end.  I love the quote at the ending.  It seemed to fit so well with the idea of the story.  Wonderful job!


Chapter 1: Not Yet Discouraged
The Worthy by Seren [Mid Teens]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 4]

The Last Battle has begun, and the Last Stand is pitched in the Ministry of Magic. After Remus Lupin is felled, Harry and his closest friends defeat Voldemort, and Prophecy is fulfilled. But it is not the end; the Veil stands as Judge, Jury, and Executioner, and only the worthy may survive. Not a Sirius returns from the Veil fiction.

Believe by PhoenixFirebolt [All Ages]

Christmas is a time when miracles supposedly happen. But for Ginny, ever since Draco left her to fight in the Second War, Christmas has not held the same meaning. She's about to realize though that all you really have to do is believe.
