Author has written 21 stories for Harry Potter.
HI! I'm Amilia Padfoot, but just call me Ami, and I'm mad about Harry Potter!
What's going on?:
09/07/17: Updated Birthdays. Will try and Chapter 13 up soon. (Have aslo got a job interview this week so fingers crossed for that!)
23/08/15: It's my birthday! And I've updated Birthdays. :) Hope to get it all up before I'm in uni again. Progress is shown bellow. Thank you so much for the reviews I'm getting; you're amazing! x
27/11/14: It's been such a long time since I've written and I don't know if I will write fan fiction again. Having said that, if my muse does one day hold me hostage I will post a one-shot, most likely to add to CWT. I will finish Birthdays. I like that fic and I plan to see it through until the very end. But after that I may well drop off the face of the Earth. I check my e-mails regularly so I'll reply to any PMs. I want to say a massive thank you and go on and on about how amazing everyone has been to me on this site but I ain't gone just yet so I'll save the mushy stuff for later. :) Over and out.
16/02/15: I have done something very strange (strange for me anyway) and appear to be writing Birthdays backwards. I have written the last two chapters (hey least you know there will be an ending :) ) and seem to be progressing in this way. If going backwards can be classed as progress. Anyway, it will all makes sense in the end and as it would be daft to post the fic in such a way it is likely that it will be quite a while before you hear from me (shocker, I know) but then I'll update once a week until it's done. Simples. Merlin knows if this was of any interest to you but hey, see ya round. Over and out.
07/05/2015: I once hinted at a sequel to Egg Plant. I intended it to take a darker path. None of this has come to fruition but the little bits and pieces here and there that I wrote have been turned into a small fic: 'I wish' which I'll put up soon. Exams end 31st May. Will focus solely on BD after :)

Here's my FinctionPress.com profile if you want to cheek it out: http://www.fictionpress.com/u/767217/AmiliaPadfoot I'll be alternating between the two sites but I'll spend most of my time here because I just love fanfiction better at the moment.
I have a beta now! yay! by the name of DramionePerfected, who is awesome, and has a profile that you should check out!
You could also cheek out this brilliant writer http://www.fictionpress.com/u/767112/. She's good! Trust me!
And of course there's this fab Author, http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2736491/, who was a sort of an 'unofficial beta' for. You should especially check out this story,
1. The third night: -only a one shot- Thank you, everyone, that reviews this fic, but please don't ask, I will NOT be continuing it. I'm sorry.

8. Birthdays: James. S. Potter sees some of his dad's memories: WIP: (see progress bellow) - Chapter 11 up!
He sees his father's birthdays of long ago and soon begins to wonder how his dad can still love, how the Dursleys can be so cruel, and most of all how his dad's heart can still be beating...
How will James react to mad house elves, horrible Aunts, threatening Uncles and taunting cousins? Flashing from one memory to another- can he handle the harsh truth?
9. Eggplant - From Ginny and Harry's POV: Mostly 1st person: Complete - Thank you to Habiba Uddin (known as x.RainDrops3003.x on here) for the amazing cover.

For those of you who care, or (like me) prefer things in chronological order:

22* Harry Sheppard: Summery: After not paying attention one day and nearly being run over, Harry is asked a simple question that forms an idea in his mind. Will it turn out for better of worse though? Please R and R. I just got an A* for this in English! Yay! Link: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2896500/1/Harry_Sheppard
23* A simple boy: Summary: He is a simple boy and yet he want's something so badly. Short but sweet. Please R and R and why not try to guess what he wants? Link: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2896425/1/A_simple_boy -completed- just a one shot. The boy in this story could be seen as Harry (as in Harry Potter) as I had him in mind when I wrote it.
I'd truly love it if you read anyone of these stories. :-) Please do!

ANNON REVIEWERS ONLY!
Dear anonymous reviewers to my stories. I feel bad when I can't reply to you. So I'm going to put them here. I doubt you will have any objection else you wouldn't put your comments up on the site in the first place but if you do let me know! (I know that sounds stupid 'How can I?' You're probably thinking. Um just yell at the screen I'm sure I'll hear you.)
Lol. I enjoyed this. READ THE DAMN LOLLY!
Very un-Harry from what J.K Rowling described him. But someone had just accused his daughter of stealing and that was never part of Harry Potter. If Rowling wrote it as someone accusing Lily of something, I think Harry Would have reacted the same.
Thank you! I have to agree it is a bit OC but when I was first suggested this story, the first thing oddly enough, I was in a weird mood, that came to mind was that little scene when he shouts 'Read the dam lolly!' and goes off all Lawyer-ly on him :-) It was fun to write, and wow do I fell flattered by that comparison. Thanks again!
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 7. Chapter 7 From: phoebe turner
THANK YOU!!! I HAVE OFFICIALLY REACHED 100 REVIEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!! 100! I'M SO HAPPY!!!! :-)
Story: Why aren't you talking to him? Chapter: 4. Chapter 4 From: Roz ()
I like the story! I wanna know how Harry escapes, please don't leave it unfinished! keep up the good writing
I'm so glad you like it!! That will be soon!! Nothing to drastic though mind. I have wrote the next chap its just beta-ring it and all that boring stuff, getting it right. My spelling is awful. yea anyway thanks for the review!!!
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 7. Chapter 7 From: Roz ()
I'm enjoying the story! This is a really good idea, it's not a 'reading through the books story' but you still get to see James' reaction to the events in them. Keep up the writing, it's really good so far! XD
Yay! I'm so happy now!! I will, I can't wait to find time to crack on with the next chap. Thank you!!!
Story: Conversations With Teddy Chapter: 1. Stuck in traffic From: too-lazy-to-log-in (I'm going to get that a lot aren't I?)
That was such an amazing story! I'm begging you to update ASAP! I NEED MORE!
hahah I'm so glad you're eager! Sorry for the wait. I won't bore you with a list of reasons why I'm so busy, but I shall update, have no fear. Thanks so much for your review.
Story: Conversations With Teddy Chapter: 1. Stuck in traffic From: theater life for me
Nice job! Teddy is one of my favorite characters to write for. J.K. intended for him to be a minor character, but it's that much easier to write for him. Plz, update really soon! I'm super interested in this story.
Thank you. He is for me too!! You find him easy to write? At first I found it kind of hard with so little to go on but now I have this picture of him in my head and it's just easy for me now. He is great. I'm glad you're interested! That makes me want to continue so much! And I will the second I get time :-) Thank again!
Story: Conversations With Teddy Chapter: 1. Stuck in traffic From: stacy
You have to continue! This is one of the best stories I have ever read. [and I've read quite a few fanfics] Plz update soon! I'm really excited to see your next chapter
Oh my Merlin, wow that is a HUGE complement. Thank you. Grinning madly right now. I wanna update so bad right now. But, Alas life shall get in the way once more :-( Thanks again!!
Story: Conversations With Teddy From: UNKNOWN
really nice job! Plz, update. I would really appreciate it. I just love stories involving Teddy...
Now there is a promise I can keep, Updating. I can do that. When however? *wince* sorry. Hopefully soon. Oh, I do too!! I love loads of other characters, naturally, but for me, Teddy is the best :-) Thanks for the review and encouragement!!!
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 7. Chapter 7 From: Z
Hiya, I really like this fic. It's such an interesting concept I, I can't wait till you update :)
Hello to you too! I'm glad you like it, thanks for taking the time to review! I can't wait to Update again too!! Have a great Christmas!!!!
Story: Conversations With Teddy Chapter: 2. Waiting up for me From: diefot ()
diefot:this is a wonderful story. I love the characterisations.
Hello! I'm happy you think so! They really are my Fav Characters so It's great to hear that you like my versions of them :-) Thank you for the feed back! Hope you have a great year!
Story: Birthdays, Chapter: 8, From: Daniel
hey, great story! I don't usually like next generation stories, but this one is pretty cool, shows James S. just why his father is so awesome! really nice, keep it up!
Hello, Daniel. Why thank you! If I can get you to like something you usually don't then I'm honored. Oh, yeah Harry is totally awesome! I will, thank you for the review and encouragement!
Story: CWT, Chapter 4, From: jotty
i really love this story. i also really liked Jess and the way you wrote this recent chapter
Hello there, jotty. Naw, thank you. I honestly thought not that may people would like her, but I'm glad you saw her better side. I'm frilled that you're enjoying it and I hope you continue to. Thanks for the review!
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 8. Chapter 8 From: Fleur-de-lys ()
Fleur-de-lys:I think it's a good thing you didn't go further, even if it would have been interesting. But it wouldn't have fit with your story. So I think you did great!
And can't wait to see what you do for the next chapter since it wasn't in the book. I really look forward to it. I really like this story!
I hope you'll update soon!
Hello again! Well I'm glad you think so. I was worried about that. I don't know whether it's a good idea putting this on my profile or not, but I've told others so hey. I am thinking of either continuing or writing a separate fic where James sees other memories. I will be asking people opinions about that towards the end of Birthdays. You may be but I'm not. Not this, his 14th but I'm sure I'll think of something :-) Yay! Hope you continue to like it. I'll try my best. Thanks for the review!!
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 8. Chapter 8 From: Alex ()
Alex: I honestly can't put how much I love this story into words! I always like fics where Harry's children get to see their dad's childhood,especially when it's James,who I have singled out of Harry's kids for some reason I'm not really sure of,but I seem to have a soft spot for him!Keep writing,this is amazing!I hope to see more soon,but no need to be stressed or anything,take your time if you need it!Well done,I love your other stories as well,I think you are one of the best authors on here!
Hiya, Alex. You have made me one happy lady :-) I love all of Harry's children including Teddy and (not including Teddy) Albus used to be my fave. Then I began writing B/Days and now I have a really soft spot for James too :-) Fickle I know but I reckon I write James better anyway. Thank you so much! I've just looked in the mirror and I look a bit like a tomato right now. You're too kind. Hope I can update soon, but I can tell you know (And anyone else whose nosy enough (just kidding) to read this) that it might be a very long time, BUT if that is the case I'll treat you all to a short gap between that and the next one. A double whammy of sorts :-) Anyway thank you for the kind review. See ya round.
Story: WAYTTH? Chapter: 6 From: neeecole66
Awesome chapter! gotta love harry and ron together! their friendship is awesome!
Aw, why thank you. OMM yes you have. Probably, in my opinion, one of the best friendship pairings ever. Can't agree more. Thanks for the review, sorry for the late reply.
Story: CWT Chapter: 5 From: Paul
This was great. I love the way you write the Harry/Teddy relationship. I would love a sick Teddy chapter where Harry takes care of him or even a Teddy in the hospital, maybe Harry spends the night? Also, a chapter defining their particular parent/child relationship would be really nice and sweet. I love this story!
Sorry for the late reply. They're my favourite to write :-) Hmm these are really good ideas. I probably will do something like that, who knows really? I've only planed the next two, maybe three so I'm open to suggestions. Thanks :-) Hope you like the coming (Merlin knows when) chapters just as much.
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 1 From: Ghfjtrk98
I know they don't show all of Harry's birthdays in the books. I believe the next birthday is his 17th? Maybe you can have James skip to the next one, I would love to see him finally look at a happy birthday his father had. Please update the suspense is killing me! Love the story!
Heya! Yep, that's right. Shame really. I only realized that half way through chapter 3 so that was silly of me. I don't think I'll skip then, I'm working on his 14th now but it's looking to be very short, unfortunately. But on the bright side, it means I can move on to his 15th soon after. Sorry about the suspense, it's all my exams fault, blame my school :-) Great hearing from you, thanks for the review!
Story: Warts and all. From: ghfjtrk98
OH! I love this! Your writing and how you portray the characters are AMAZING! Please keep writing more of the not an uncle by blood series!(:
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I wrote this especially to practice describing people (I'm a bit week at doing that) so that's a wonderful thing to say. Oh, I will! I'm hoping to do Lucy or Fred next. Fell free to make requests! Thanks again :-)
Story: Egg Plant Chapter: 4 From: Anonymous
:Well done, slightly OOC, like would Vernon really be drunk? Ginny's never THAT mad, but well done.
Heya! Ta for the review. Yea I believe that if you're going by the books timeline you are right, he wouldn't. But as this is set after... In my own little H.P world I reckon Dudley woke up after the war and became more distant with his dad and before egg plant Petunia had died, so he's rather grief stricken. I never really explained this much in the story, as it was from Harry and Ginny's POV. I could go on and on about my views on the Dursley's dynamics and why Vernon hated Harry so much but I won't bore you with that. As for Ginny again yea I doubt very much that she is normally ever that mad. They were just going through a very rough patch. Hope that makes sense. But I do apologize for any OOC-ness. Thanks again! x
Story: Birthdays Chapter 1 From: Alex
Hello again! I decided to reread this while waiting for the next chapter!I'm wondering why Harry's been so distracted lately...I'm looking forward to finding out! Congratulations on your work again, it's wonderful, keep it up!
Heya! It's nice to hear from you again! Wow, if you can put up with reading it a second time it must be good :-) Yea Poor Harry, a lot on his mind. Can't be easy running his department. Hehe hope you're not in too much suspense over it. THANK YOU. I shall try my best. I'm re-wring the chap-again. But my laptop is working now. (I hope.) Anyway thanks for the review, I love hearing form you!
Story: Warts and all From: Guest
Great job, I love this look into Roxy future, and her relationship with her Uncle, very well done.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I love writing about the next gen kids and I'm glad you enjoyed it! Ta for the review!
Story: Warts and all From: Guest
Short, sweet, and heart-warming.Beautiful.
I could say the same about your review! :)
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 9 From: Pasha
Finally, an update! Great chapter as always :D That must have been a great summer for Harry, good thing he's smart enough using Sirius like that lol Please please update more often!
Hello, Pasha! Sorry for the late reply! Thank you. Yea that was a great idea on his part, and I'm sure Sirius would have been pleased too :-) I'll try my best! I'm hoping to update my other stories first, though. Thank you for the review!!
Story: Birthdays Chapter 9 From: Alex
A lovely chapter as always!Even if you were on your own,without the book,I mean,you did a great job!I love how James saw his dad happy for once!The ending though...I'm really looking forward to the next chapter,I want to see James' reaction to Harry's nightmares!Now I'm wondering,what will Harry say once he founds out about this?You know,I 'd like a story where James sees more of his dad's memories,not just his birthdays...Anyway,congratulations on this chapter(and your work overall),I can't wait for more!
Hello again Alex!! Was hoping to hear from you. Thank you! Yea it really is about time isn't it? Not looking forward to writing the next chap. I mean it will be great to write but I don't like upsetting James. I'm very attached to him. Well you'll have to wait a while I'm afraid Harry won't find out till towards the end. Yea a lot of people have asked for that and I am very seriously considering it. But Birthdays first. I will be asking people's opinions towards the end of B-Days. Thank you! I'll work on the next update as soon as I can! And I was wondering, if maybe, if you are ever to review again, you could tell me if you have read this? I am wondering whether my annon reviews actually do come here or not. Thanks! x
Story: Birthdays Chapter 9 From: WitchHex
Hellooooo! This is a lovely story, and I'm hoping to see more. I'm wondering who Lucas is, but loving that one phrase "dippier ideas than Aunt Luna"
Helloooo to you too! Why thank you, I can't wait to update again. Lucas Hanes is a friend of James who hangs out with him, Fred, Louis and their other friend Megan Stone. And I would love to claim that but my beta DramionePerfected, love her, added that bit. Gave me a giggle too :-) Thank you, I really do try to keep things a cannon as possible! Ta for the review, sorry for the late reply.
Story: CWT Chapter: 6 From: Jack
So I love this story and I'm sad that we will have to wait so long for an update but thats okay! I dont know if you take suggestions but I would love a coversation in which Teddy is sick or injured and Harry is scared and talking about how much Teddy means to him and how scared he is and what losing him would do to Harry Anyway another great chapter, thanks
I never replied to as I started this little idea after you have reviewed, but after re-reading your review I have to reply. Thank you for the suggestion I do indeed take them! I think, if things are to go to plan it will be chapter 17, and I'll dedicate to you as it is after all your suggestion.
Story: No child of mine From: Ghfjtrk
Love the story, as always! This made me cry too! It was so sweet with an underlining current from Harry's childhood that really makes you remember how terrible it was. I love how you portray Harry as a father because I have always pictured him as being an amazing dad! He would never want his children to go through anything he went through. Even if it's not the same or as bad. Like I said before, love it as always!3
Sorry this is late but thank you! I'm really surprised by the amount of people saying it made them cry. That was exactly what I was hoping for! (The underlining current not making you cry) No he really wouldn't. I can see him being really passionate about not having the past repeated. Thank you again. love hearing from you!
Story: No child of mine From: The Crimson Mage.
Aaaaarrrrrr...such a sweet and cute story. I give you: two golden stars and hope you do more one day soon.
Yay! Golden stars! I'll pin them up on my badge board. Thanks! I shall keep on writing. :-)
Story: No child of mine From: Alex
Hello again! You know, I'm finishing school this summer and that's when I'm planning to review every single one of your fics, because I love them all and they deserve to have lots and lots of reviews, I don't know if I'm making much sense but I 'm hoping you're getting what I mean! But I just had to review this right away,because this is some of your best work, quite possibly the very best,at least for me! I really can't blame your beta for crying,this is so emotional, it's absolutely beautiful, there are no other words for this! I also love that you present Teddy as one of Harry's kids, no matter that he's not his biological father, I think that's exactly how Harry would treat Teddy! After all, he can relate to him better than anyone can't he? Anyway, I really can't decide which part is my favourite! Of course,James has always been my favourite out of Harry's children,followed closely by Teddy (which is mainly thanks to CWT), but these are all so sweet! Or bittersweet,because it reminds us of Harry's terrible childhood, but we also see how happy he is, having his own family!
Heya! Sorry this is late! Oh such a long and wonderful review! Oh, I can't wait for that then! You are one of my favourite reviewers! I'm glad you agree with me. I just couldn't not included him. Teddy and Harry have to be my favourite relationship in the whole H.P fandom. Yea James and Teddy are my favs too, not that I should really be choosing, they're all wonderful! I was really hoping I would get the balance right between remembering how bad he had it and how good he has it now, glad I managed it! Oh it's no problem! I quite enjoy it! And it's only fair, I was so frustrated before I got an account. And thanks for reminding me! I keep forgetting to mention it! Thank you for you amazing review :-) I really am considering continuing. I've been asking people the things they would like covered if I ever do continue. Until next time indeed! Hope you're well!
Story: I can't be him From: PuzzleBookie (Guest)
PuzzleBookie: Tears...just so much emotion in a short piece. I'd really like to see more of this type of thing!
Sorry, this is so late! Thank you for reviewing! I was a little worried that it was too short.
Story: No child of mine From: Anna Starling (Guest)
Anna Starling: Loved, loved, loved this!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! :-)
Story: No child of mine From: pies (Guest)
pies: Made me cry too! Right at the end... This is a really lovely story :) every moment was touching and sweet. I love the way you portrayed the kids (and the fact they go to primary school- it's something I can see Harry doing) all of the scenes were important and you wrapped it all together amazingly. Great fic!
Thank you so much! I thought Harry would want them to get some experience of the Muggle world so if they were told bad things about Muggles in general they can tell from their own experience that they are unfounded. I umm-ed and ahh-ed over the scenes quite a bit so I'm glad that you like them all! Thanks again!
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 9. From: pies (Guest)
pies:I love this story! You've made me laugh and more than a little misty-eyed :) thanks so much for writing and I hope you update soon!
Thanks for another lovely review! Aw, I made you misty eyed. :-) Success! hehe. It's a pleasure. Hope I find some more time to fulfill that request sometime soon!
Story: No child of mine From: Guest: They were all great! I enjoyed guessing what each promise would be as I read my favourite sections were the ones that focused on Al.
Hey there! I think the ones for Al were may favourite to write. I kind of used him to make the fic a bit more light-hearted. :-) Thanks for the review! I'm so glad you enjoyed it :-)
Story: I wish. Chapter: 1 From: The Other World
I can't thank you enough. I was incredibly nervous about posting this fic and having such a wonderful review helped put my mind at rest. It is pretty horrific. It was exactly what I was aiming for and I'm glad I achieved that and you enjoyed it. Thank you for the encouragement! x
Story: I wish. Chapter 1 From: Alexis
I honestly couldn't agree with you more. Thank you for your review :)
Story: Birthdays. Chapter: 10 From: anonymous.
So sorry for the late reply! I hope you liked the update and continue to like the story till the end. Thank you so much; I'm glad you enjoyed those chapters :) That's a very interesting way of looking at it. As I'd already written the point where James leaves the pensive I hope it doesn't disappoint when you read it. Thank you again for the lovely review. :)
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 10 From Fleur-de-lys
I’m so sorry this ridiculously late. I hope you had a good birthday both then and this year. I shall never abandon this fic. I hope you enjoyed Chap. 11. Thank you, so much – I was worried that not adding other memories would upset some people. I most certainly will include a conversation between Harry and James. Thanks again, you’re review made me very happy then and now. :)
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 10 From: Alex
Sorry for the late very, very, very late reply! I’m so glad you weren't disappointed and I hope you still aren't. Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement; you’re rewires always make me smile. I’ll try to remember to always create out of joy and inspiration ;)
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 10 From: Guest (23.09.13)
This reply is horribly late, sorry. I hope you enjoyed the update. Sorry for the extremely long wait. Thank you for your kind words, you made me blush :L
Story: Birthdays Chapter: 10 From: BluAngel
I’m glad you like the story perspective; I was worried some might not like seeing it from James’s POV. I wish there was too. I have a bit of a weakness for Harry’s kids finding out about his past –good and bad. Thank you for the review!
Story: Birthdays Chapter 10. From: Guest (19.10.13)
I’m sorry for any damage my story caused your soul. I hope it is better now and you enjoyed the update :)
Story: Birthdays Chapter 10. From: Najiya
Najiya: What a weasel story... and weasel stories are mostly crap so I won't bother reading it further.
I wish to assure you that I never have, or ever will write a story about a weasel. I tend to focus my stories on humans. I can't help but wonder how many stories about weasels you've read to come to the conclusion that most of them are 'crap' but I respect your opinion on the matter. I hope one day you may consider reading my story, now without fear of coming across a weasel but if you do not wish to take the risk I still thank you for adding to my reviews, without even reading the story. That's very generous of you. Hope you have a nice day.
Sorry if I haven't replied to someone yet annon or otherwise. I shall try to reply to all annon reviews to Birthdays as it will be the only fic I'm posting now. Thank you so much to everyone who has reviewed so far, you're amazing :D
Draco: You see, I, unlike you, have been made a prefect, which means that I, unlike you, have the power to hand out punishments.
Harry: Yeah, but you, unlike me, are a git, so get out and leave us alone.
" I don't mean to be rude —" he (Uncle Vernon) began, in a tone that threatened rudeness in every syllable.
"— yet, sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often," Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely. "Best to say nothing at all, my dear man. Ah, and this must be Petunia."
Dumbledore: "For future reference, Harry, it is raspberry… although of course, if I were a Death Eater, I would have been sure to research my own jam preferences before impersonating myself."
"Why?" said Harry irritably. "I thought Voldemort was supposed to be lying low, or are you telling me he's going to jump out from behind a dustbin to try and do me in?"
"Well, congratulations," said Moody, still glaring at Ron with his normal eye, "authority figures always attract trouble, but I suppose Dumbledore thinks you can withstand most major jinxes or he wouldn't have appointed you…"
"Hey, Potty, I heard Warrington's sworn to knock you off your broom on Saturday", far from chilling his blood, made him laugh.
"Warrington's aim's so pathetic I'd be more worried if he was aiming for the person next to me," he retorted
Dumbledore: I have absolutely no intention of being sent to Azkaban. I could break out, of course - but what a waste of time, and frankly, I can think of a whole host of things I would rather be doing."
One of my all time faves: Nevertheless, it was quite galling to be told not to be rash by a man who had served twelve years in the wizard prison, Azkaban, escaped, attempted to commit the murder he had been convicted for in the first place, then gone on the run with a stolen Hippogriff.
*Harry, I've left a letter telling your aunt and uncle not to worry –"
"They won't," said Harry.
"- that you're safe -"
"That'll just depress them."
"- and you'll see them next summer."
"Do I have to?"
Lupin smiled but made no answer.
*He amused himself for a moment, picturing Dumbledore, with his long silver beard, full-length wizard's robes and pointed hat, stretched out on a beach somewhere, rubbing suntan lotion into his long crooked nose.
*Ron's voice now joined the others. "What are we doing here? Has something gone wrong?"
"Oh, no, Ron," came Fred's voice, very sarcastically. "No, this is exactly where we wanted to end up."
"Yeah, we're having the time of our lives here," said George, whose voice sounded muffled, as though he was squashed against the wall.
"Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge?"
"Yes," said Harry.
"You called her a liar?"
"You told her He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is back?"
Professor McGonagall sat down behind her desk, watching Harry closely. Then she said, "Have a biscuit, Potter."
"Have - what?"
*"Lieutenant Slingsby", the Colonel said, "tells me that you insulted him. That you invited him to a duel. That you called him illegitimate. That you swore at him."
Sharpe cast his mind back to the brief confrontation on the ridge's forward slope and after he had pulled the company out of the French panic. "I doubt I called him illegitimate, sir." he said. "I wouldn't use that sort of word. I probably called him a ba*." --This quote is used in my story A Question of Titles. No credit to me. It is from Sharpe.
(Margaret and Hawkeye are taking inventory of medical supplies, and it’s about 1 in the morning.)
Klinger, taking a test: "Mary's mother sent her to the store to get nine large cans of beans. Mary could only carry two cans at a time. How many trips to the store did Mary have to make?" ... What kind of a family would only feed the children beans?
Hawkeye, discussing his distaste for guns: I will not carry a gun... I'll carry your books, I'll carry a torch, I'll carry a tune, I'll carry on, carry over, carry forward, Cary Grant, cash and carry, carry me back to Old Virginia, I'll even hari-kari if you show me how, but I will not carry a gun!
"THEY SAY THIS IS A SUICIDE MISSION- PROVE THEM WRONG!!!
"Why is it when people say 'with all due respect' they really mean 'kiss my ass'?
Urdnott Wrex: So this is the famous turian general? How did your kind ever defeat us?
Turian Councilor: [the council refuse to believe Shepard, despite the truth of his past claims] I believe there is a saying amongst you humans: "even a broken clock is correct two times a day."
Well done if you made it this far! Let my stories be your reward!
And on with the fiction...
