Author has written 20 stories for Harry Potter.
Welcome to my profile! I’m PenguinBuddy, I'm in my mid-twenties, and I'm a graduate student studying Library Science/Archival studies. I started writing stories on this site when I fifteen, so I suppose that makes me a bit old amongst the fanfiction community. But I am a hopeless romantic who loves cheesiness and therefore do not care at all. The Pottermore Sorting Hat declared me a Ravenclaw!
My favorite ship is Lily/James, but I also read Next Generation (Rose/Scorpius, James/OC, Al/OC) and a few assorted others as I stumble across them. The very idea of Dramione and/or Snily deeply disturbs me.
Favorite books include: Harry Potter series, I Capture the Castle, Pride and Prejudice, Anne of Green Gables, the Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus series, The Guernsey Literacy and Potato Peel Pie Society, Ella Enchanted, the James Herriot books, and anything by Sharon Kay Penman.
I appreciate any and all reviews that I receive and I always reply (usually in detail if you write a lot) to signed reviews. It's the least I can do when people take the time to give me feedback on my stories. Now that I'm in grad school it takes me a bit longer to reply than it used to, but I remain firm in my dedication to respond to everyone who takes the time to give me feedback and let me know what they thought. I have truly awesome readers. If you want a reply, please make sure that you have private messaging unblocked!
Ask me questions about my writing and such here:
5/11/13 - Yeah...that moment when you decided to add another longish scene to an already long chapter when you thought you were ready to start editing. Ugh.
4/13/2013 - I have about two weeks left in the semester and I am therefore ridiculously busy and feeling overwhelmed. So to anyone that I haven't replied to for any story or general message, I apologize. I have not forgotten you, I promise! Your reviews have made me smile - it's been much needed - so thank you, and I will reply as soon as I have some proper free time.
3/7/2013 - Chapter Twenty-Six of Game On has been posted!!! Enjoy, everyone! :)
2/26/2013 to anonymous reviewer Guest: Don't worry, I haven't abandoned Game On. I love writing Game On, I could never leave it unfinished. I'm just busy, that's all. I'm currently in the final editing stages, so the new chapter isn't terribly far away now.
1/27/2013 - Several months ago, I started a fake pinterest account using Eva's name. It's come to my attention recently that I actually have people following my boards. So if you're curious at all, "Eva's" board is user evawood1163. I don't mess with it very often, but it has some fun things on it.!
I have some Lily/James oneshots in various states of completeness sitting in a word document...maybe I'll get around to working on one of them at some point. We'll see.
Information about the world of "Game On"
"All Sorts of Wrong" is a short story from James's point of view and takes places in James and Eva's sixth year, before "Game On" begins.
There will be a Rose/Scorpius oneshot tentatively titled, "Encounters in the Library" set in the world of "Game On." No idea when I'll get around to posting it.
There will be a sequel to Game On. More information on that later.
Names: (Some have variant pronunciations, but I've given the ones that I use)
Eva - Pronounced the same as Ava. I just happen to like the 'E' spelling.
Lyra - Pronounced Lie-rah; Greek name for a constellation.
Sorcha -Pronounced Sor-ha; a Scottish Gaelic name. The Irish Gaelic pronunciation is different.
Gemma - Rhymes with Emma.
Nico - Pronounced Knee-co. It is his given name and not shortened.
Bree - Same pronunciation as brie cheese.
Elena - Pronounced Elaine-ah.
Other Story Information:
"Just One of Those Things" - Really could have been plotted better. Or plotted at all. It had potential, that in my opinion, it did not live up to.
Do read everything else, and enjoy!
"Expected" and "Something in the Water" are loosely based on real events that happened to people I know.
Fun Fact: The "Oh, Christmas Tree" banner is an actual picture of my family's Christmas tree one year.
One of my favorite quotes..."She loved books. She loved them with her senses and her intellect. They way they looked and smelled; the way they felt in her hands; the way the pages seemed to murmur as she turned them." - Betty Smith
