I am a mom with 3 kids and have recently opened a small sandwich shop with my own mom.  I am also a Mod on the forums but I am very easy going and love to chat. I love Draco, not sure why but I do.  I was so TEAM JACOB and was seriously bummed about the way Twilight ended.  I am rooting for Eragon and Arya but fear that is a tragic love story and I must say that Orlando Bloom is by far the HOTTEST elf I have ever seen! I have a few one shots and 2 chaptered fics along with 2 WIP's.

The true history of Galbatorix. Where did he come from? What shaped him into the man he would become? Did he ever truly deserve to be the most hated man in Alagaesia?

The fic that made me famous, first posted years ago at Shurtugal Fan Fiction. This is the fic that made readers everywhere start to wonder - who should they really be rooting for?

This was fantastic! I can totally see them having to look at these and snickering in class (so high schoolish).  Im glad you put the links to the pictures too it really helpes as I am no art major and had no idea what the paintings looked like.  And rhw thoughts of the teacher...naughty, naughty.

This was a wonderful little glimpse into Edwards mind.  You did a very good of keeping them in character and following the true storyline.  Great job. 




Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Hermione doesn't think that Harry and Draco know enough about practicing safe sex. She decides to take it upon herself to introduce them to a Muggle contraception. Before she knows it, Hermione is doing more than instructing the two.

Im not good with poetry so my reviews arn't either but I liked this.  It told a story all its own, which Im sure was the intent.  For someone like me (who rarly understands poetry) it is a great accomplishment for it to come across the way you intended, as a stand alone piece.  Good job.

Author's Response:

Thanks, Kristy! I'm glad you liked it. I really appreciate you reading it and leaving such a nice note! See you around the forums! ~Gina :)




Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Edward is well aware of the difficulty in keeping Bella safe. After much consideration, he makes a decision that changes both of their lives tremendously.

This is a good short story.  My questions is what was the prompt to write the story?  Your story seemed to follow the book and thoughts that Edward had about leaving Bella.  There was only one typo that you might want to fix: Paragraph 13 add the word "be" That would be the best ......

Author's Response:

Thank you , Jamye. I cannot believe I missed that!

I am a participant in the New Moon Book Club over on the WT forums. One of the prompts offered was 'regret' and this little plot bunny danced into my head one night. I thought that it was Edward's turn to have his thoughts/feelings be known about his decision to leave Bella and Forks.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and leave a review.

Chapter 1: Prologue
Feature

In Breaking Dawn, Edward tells Bella that he talked to Carlisle and his brothers about their wedding night.  Given how mannerly and gentlemanly both Edward and Carlisle are, I've often wondered how the conversation between them went.  This is a stand-alone one shot that will eventually have at least two companion pieces

It wasn't quite the talk i expected but it was still a good story.  I was thinking he was going to have to expalin the birds and the bees to Edward.



Author's Response:

I thought that since Edward lives with 3 perfectly matched married couples, and he has two graduate degrees in medicine, he probably knows that Tab A fits into Slot B.  But he doesn't know how it feels, and how he will be able to balance pleasure and control, so that was the angle I went with.  Thanks for reviewing!




Chapter 1: The Talk, Part 1 (One Shot)
Polar Opposites by the_wind [Young Teens]
starstarstarstar [Reviews - 6]
One was my sun; the other was my moon. One was hot, the other cold. One was a vampire, the other a werewolf. I had – once upon a time – lived and almost died for one, while the other lived and would die for me. They were polar opposites. How, then, could I still love both? Jacob-imprints-on-Bella fic. Still haven't decided on final pairing.

While WT did start as an HP fanfic site we have expanded to the other fandoms so don't sell yourself short.  If you get a good hook (like yiou last line) then you will pull the raders in by word of mouth.  Jump on the forms and make some friends and spread the word about your story and that will also bring in more readers.

I like the way you have started this out but it is a tiny bit too much like the actual story.  You did however to add enough little details to make it your own. I am interested in seeing where you take this story so I will keep watching for the updates.

~Kristy



Author's Response: I know it's pretty similar to the story, my moderator commented on that. The problem is, I can't start changing things left, right and centre straight off the mark, or the story will seem unrealistic. I think you'll find that as we get further into the story, it'll deviate more from the books. Thanks for the review and the advice.



Chapter 1: Prologue - One Slight Alteration

I like what you have done with your own voice in this chapter but the parts where you are going off what Meyers wrote are very rushed.  Of course those of us who have read the series know what imprinting is but you should probably add a little bit more explanation in this chapter since it is lending itseelf to that.  You set it up to read like she didn't know what it was then suddenly she new exactly what it was without any further explanation from Sam.  YOu might want to go back and add a paragraph or two.  If you don't already have a beta you might want to get one, they at least are someone to bounce ideas off of and show you where the little holes in your story are, even the best authors have editors.  When you write outside of Meyers and use your own voice the writing is good and the story starts to develop as your own.  Keep going, the more you get away from the stuff we all know the better your story will become. 

~Kristy



Author's Response: Thanks for the advice. I've never been that great when it comes to explaining things, so I know it needs work. Getting a beta would be a good idea, not entirely sure how I'd go about getting one though. I'll look around anyway. Thanks again.
