Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.
Hey people! I'm Allie. I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. For years I listened to them on tape as I fell asleep, so I have listened to them all (excluding the 7th) over 100 times each. You can tell that I have because I can do rediculus things like recite what it says on the door of Gringotts from memory. (Enter stranger, but take heed, of what awaits the sin of greed. For those who take but do not earn must pay most dearly in their turn. For, if you seek beneth our floors a treasure that was never yours, Theif, you have been warned of finding more than treasure there.) I can never decide if I am proud or ashamed of that talent!
I love re-reading them and seeing new things and little details that I hadn't before. It's great fun to see all of the far ahead planning that JKR did. An example of what I am talking about is the vanishing cabinet that Malfoy fixes in the 6th book. You know the one? Well, she has Peeves break it in the SECOND BOOK! Filch comes back from finding out what a noise was in order to punish Harry for "defiling the castle," (dripping mud on the floor), and he comes back muttering to Mrs. Norris, "We'll get him this time, My Sweet. That Vanishing Cabinet was extremely valuable." 'Course, I'm paraphrasing, so it might not be just like that, but it's something along those lines - no pun intended.
Also, the intricate planning of the character's names! The best examples are the Malfoy family and Sirius. The prefix "Mal" is Latin for bad or evil. Then, take Malfoy's mother's name - Narcissa. It comes from Roman/Greek Mythology (I can't remember which). Narcissa was a man that was totally obsessed with his own beauty. One time he was so obsessed with this reflection in a river that he fell in and drowned. Along the bank where he died Narcissa flowers grew. Narcissa now means someone who is vain or obsesses with them self - which she is! Then there's Sirius. Sirius is the main star in the Sirius constellation, which is a dog. The tag names of the series are simply fantastic! Along with all the Latin roots for the spells... gives appreciative sigh
JKR's planning is what made the series fantastic. It's all so real and tangible. I don't like any other series about magic and stuff because I just don't believe it. (If you get what I mean.) Harry Potter - I totally buy the characters and the whole thing. The way that JKR planned the school and the homework and all of the other stuff like that, it's just so realistic. It seems like that, if this were all real, this is how things would operate in the wizarding world. That's why I love it so much; it's just so dang realistic!
I want to thank the readers of Together for making my first FanFic such a success. (I just broke 200 reviews today =D) It did NOT start out well, but I've improved over the last 2 years and I am actually liking it now!
I can't believe that it's already been TWO YEARS since I started Together, but it has. I started the summer between sixth and seventh grade, and now it's the summer between eighth and ninth. (Eeek! High School in only two and half short months!)
It's been such a journey. I know that I should have out more that 27 chapters out in two years, but I am pretty pleased none the less. It's been so fun - I'm sad that it's drawing to a close soon. If you were a fan of Together, however, do not fret! I am going to focus on The Paradox, (creative title - huh?), after I finish Together and then go onto Together'ssequels. I think that I am going to title the sequel Adding Together. What do you think?
For all of you reading Together

If you are reading the aforementioned story, thank you again for plowing through the crap! I think that right before I put up the final chapter I'll go back and edit all of the preceding chapters and bring them up to par. Then again, I may keep them as a memento towards my writing ability prowess. What option do you vote for?
