My name is Ashley. I love to write fanfics. At the current moment, I am rewriting A New Darkness, and it has been retitled A Shattered Peace. When I am finished with the revision I will start revising my other stories.

I am now 23 years old. I work at ACS where I take  credit card applications, and while I am not writing fanfics, working, or sleeping, I am trying to struggle through my writers block and write my own fantasy series: The Vampire Wars.

The daughter of Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley goes to Daddy's Day at school. Her father is not around to be there with her physically, but she knows he's in her heart. Kept home with her mother for years... no one recongnizes her as her father's child... Based on a poem called A Dad's Poem written anonymously after 9/11.

oooh... my eyes just teared up. that was so sweet and sad and wonderful. really well written. :)


Chapter 1: A Daddy's Poem

This retells the events surrounding the Dementor attack at Privet Drive -- from a far more sinister point of view. Also shows Dudley Dursley's worst memory.

did i ever mention I hate Umbridge? well i do. and you written the reason why. plus knowing what she does to Harry during school kind of intesifies it. anyways, really well written. I was kind of curious on what would make Dudley sweat.

Author's Response: Oh, me too. In some ways, I find her more detestible than Voldemort. Probably because I KNOW people like her. Yeah, that was kind of tough -- what would Dudley's worst memory be? He's so spoiled. So I thought the risk to his security, plus being exposed to his cousin's "freakishness" would do it.

*sniff* sniff* i'm trying not to cry. I felt so bad for Harry when he lost Sirius... and I can just picture him at Grimmauld Place, trying to come to terms with the man's death.

Even when Sirius came into the picture in POA, I had a feeling that he wouldn't survive the whole series. I knew he was going to die sometime, but I didn't know when or how.(I was kind of hoping it would be in the last book).

This really reached out to me and I liked it a whole lot. You wrote it just right.



Author's Response: I know what you mean; I cried when Sirius died so its okay. Thanks very much! I\'m happy you enjoyed the story, I figured that Ms. Rowling forgot this part of the story and I took up the task of fixing the mistake for her ;o) Thanks for taking the time out to review!



Chapter 1: Reminiscent
Very loosely based on Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Ron asks Fred and George for their help in a plot against Hermione, who has questioned his faithfulness. However, these two "cupids" seem to hit everything except their intended target.

:) thank you once again for the props Sharon. If I didn't have to go to work in like 5 minutes I would right a more in depth review. But this is turning into a great story and I'm glad you're letting me be a part of it.

Colin Creevey and Orla Quirke have just completed an assignment at Hogsmeade for Valentine's Day. Talk turns to each other as they offer different points of view on pictures.

Cool. Colin Creevey all grown up. I have to confess I never did like him in the series. Just one more person that Harry didn't need to deal with. Again, very nicely written. I like how you write out your dialogue. That's one of the main things I struggle with a lot. But you do really well.

Author's Response: Thanks! Personally, I\'m not the biggest Colin fan, either, but I did like giving him so not so annoying attributes, while keeping his other canon "qualities" (ie, still worshiping Harry Potter).

awwww.... sweet. very sad. sweet. oh i'm not good at this. i'm not a particular fan of harry/ginny but i have a feeling that in canon she will die doing something like this. very to the point to.

Author's Response: Thanks! Being \'to the point\' is my specialty... I\'m not very good overall, but I\'m best at summing up a lot in very few words. Thanks for the story :)

Very nicely written. I like the tone and the pace. Well done. Vernon seemed to back down too quickly though. he'd seem like the type that would bluster and carry on, which would kill him in the end because he doesn't know any better. But good, all in all.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it Ashley... Vernon does seem the type but I made him and Petunia very OOC in this story
