Hiya! I'm a 31-year-old Buckeye who is addicted to Harry Potter (but hey, aren't we all?) I work for a company that publishes local weekly papers and have gone back to school full time for my MLIS. Most of my peers think I'm insane, and I don't contradict them.

I can believe this scenario. Lily seems so sure of herself, but there's more to her than the prim, rule-following persona. She has fire, too, and ultimately, she probably wouldn't want something entirely "safe."

Author's Response:

I\'m glad you liked the scenario...I hope to hear from you more as the story wears on and gets into more dialogue and characterization :D

Thanks again for reviewing! I really appreciate it!

Lily is tempestuous. She’s stubborn. Her life is not perfect, and neither is she.  This is the story of her 7th year, the year of her Head Girlship, a Heads position alongside James Potter.

The family dynamic you paint with the Evens' is great, and I really like your Lily. Got a bit confused about the cards at the end -- but in a way, maybe that's the point. I don't think they knew what they were doing, either.

Author's Response: You\'re right.  They had absolutely no effin idea what they were doing.  They were just recklessly puttin charms into Exploding Snap, wanting to see what would happen, lol.  I\'m glad you liked Lily\'s family dynamic, I\'ve always wanted to write parents like those, and I never had the opportunity before, lol.  I hope to hear from you more in the future because your reviews are awesome to read!

"I didn’t think we’d be meeting up quite so soon, Sophia, darling," Sirius began, holding a magical pack of ice to his right eye, "but I sincerely want to thank you for putting me in my place back there. I have to be slapped every once in awhile, mainly just because otherwise I would have no physical contact with the opposite sex at all."

You should submit that as a quote for the forum *snicker*

I think Rodolphus and Rabastan (I assume Sophie's father) are brothers -- unless this is another Rodolphus, which is entirely possible. If that's the case, nevermind.

Is Lucius supposed to be in the same year as Sophie, Lily, et al? I'm not 100 percent sure on this, but I think Lucius is actually a good deal older than the Mauraders -- at least three or four years older.



Author's Response:

lol thank you for your review! I enjoyed it! I\'m not exactly sure of the lineage with the Lestranges.  This was written before HP6, and I (quite sadly, as I have had multiple mistakes pointed out to me) didn\'t check HP Lexicon before I wrote it.  Lucius was younger intentionally, he is older than Lily and James in the books, but I wanted someone who was a feasible cousin to Sophie that we all actually knew about. 

I\'m really glad you liked that quote! Once again, you totally nailed my favorite line in the chapter! Hah!

Thank you again for your review, and I appreciate that you didn\'t mind giving some constructive criticism- it was good hearing your concerns.

Thanks again, and I hope to hear from you when it gets updated again!

Heh, this is going to be interesting. Who will win out, the ego or the feisty one? My money's on Ginny.

 Ron trailed off upon the realization that A) he was talking to his sister, and B) since the beginning of his sentence, Ginny had put her fingers in her ears and begun singing show tunes.

That was the best line -- I laughed out loud!

 Interesting twist with Neville. Wonder where that will lead?



Author's Response:

lol I\'m glad you liked that line, that one is my favorite! You\'re the only one that\'s ever commented on it, though- finally, SOMEONE with my taste in humor!

It\'s about time!  Thank you so much for reviewing, I really appreciated it! It was also really awesome to see that you checked out my other stories as well! Thank you thank you thank you!

Is this a time-travel story? It's different.

Author's Response: Yep, it\'s a time travel story, and different is the idea - I\'m trying to take a new spin on a serious cliche. Thanks for reading, love jess

Why is it that Snape always finds himself in unfortunate situations? Is it because of his connection with the Dark Lord? His connections with Harry Potter? Now his worst nightmares begin to come true…

Chapter 1: Hearty Surprise
Snappy Snape by Shena [All Ages]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 10]
Snape is in a terrible mood. Why? Because he’s starting his first year at Hogwarts. What is Snape’s pet hate? People. Especially people who take an interest in him. His life is not going to be easy.

I'm not sure I've ever read a Maurader's era story from Snape's point of view. Cool! I love the curse the four cast on Snape (I was howling), and wow, is Lucius a bit of a prat. And *Snapey*? *snicker. Oh, that's not going to last too long >:)


Chapter 1: Snape and His Ultimate Nightmare

And so it begins...heh heh heh. You capture young Snape quite well -- his intelligence, his bordom and his lack of patience. One nit: According to the Harry Potter Lexicon, Hogwarts was founded before 1000 AD (I generally see about 990 or so). Queen Elizabeth's regin was in the late 1500s, and I know she died in 1602. I know wizards are long lived, but...



Author's Response:

Thankyou for the great reviews! Yeh I know about the date, someone told me a little while ago but i\'d alread written the chapter and was too lazy to change it. Well, I\'m glad you\'re enjoying it so far, the next chap should be out soon.

I rather like the voice you've given Ginny -- tough, confident, yet scarred a bit by what she's been through.
