Due to unfortunate circumstances and through no fault of my own, my fics "What I Like About You", "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing", and "I'll Be There For You" have been deleted. Why? Because of those song lyrics at the beginning of each chapter. I was alerted of this "no lyrics" policy by Elladora D. Jobberknoll, whom I am very grateful for. However, seeing as I was at school until nine o' clock every single day that week, I had no chance to fix the beginning of every chapter. So, on Thursday or Friday of last week (these aforementioned dates being the 28th and 29th of April, 2005) I received notice that my fics had been deleted from the site. Did they warn me? No. Did they send me my files so that I may fix them in the future? No. This would usually not be so bad; I had all my files saved to my computer. HOWEVER...since our computer had been ridden with a variety of viruses, we had recently had our hard drive cleaned out. As a result, everything is gone. want to help me?

If you have printed my stories out, PLEASE send me copies via email. If you have saved them to Word or something similar, PLEASE send it to me, attached to an email or copied and pasted. Either works.

My solution...

I will continue posting my stories on fanfiction, except for my Lily/James series. Those will be reposted on a separate website this July. I apologize very much for the delay; any anger or frustration you may feel, tell the administrators of about it. I will keep you posted as to where I will be posting the series. In the mean time, I'll keep you occupied with a miniseries of vignettes I had in mind, plus I'll finally be able to continue "Of Love and Of Hate".

Thank you!

Much Love,

I have just received a review from an anonymous writer, calling herself Georgette. This was what she wrote to me:

You're the ninny who broke the rules. You should be mad at yourself for being stupid, not blaming anyone else, you putz.

Dear Georgette: Au contraire. This was never, to my knowlege, a rule. Many other authors have been writing songfics or stories with songs at the beginnings of chapters. I will thank you to not call me stupid, and the insult of "putz" actually sent me into a tirade of giggles. I do hope, for both our sakes, that you were joking.


I received another review from you-don't-understand, which is too long to post here (which is totally okay, since I LOVE long reviews), but I'll respond to her:

Dear you-don't-understand: You NEVER have to apologize for long reviews! Now, I realize you left mr your email address, but after the "at" sign, it cut off. Stupid fanfiction. So, anyhow, thank s for the review and you are welcome for MY review (I really DID enjoy it). Please check my bio for updates on The Situation. Thanks SO much again!


Thank you!

Much Love,

Well, good job and thank you to those of you who have decided to check my bio page frequently, even though it hasn't been updated since May 11.

I have an idea.

See, I haven't been writing much (I won't be reposting until July), and when I do repost (because I HAVE gotten my stories back!) no one wants an author with a rusty hand, do they? So, I have a proposition. For those of you who want something to read, if anyone who has read my Lily/James series has a particular scene in mind that I skipped over while writing that they're just SO curious about, email me and I will write it for you. Don't know what the hell I'm talking about? Email me and I'll explain it.

Thank you!

Much Love,

For your pleasure and entertainment: my ten-year old brother's attempt at a fanfiction story.

Presenting: The Cliff

"Two more steps! One more steps!"

"No Harry, don't jump! Don't jump off a cliff!" Ron yelled.

"Wait, Harry!" said Hermione, and she rean up to Harry and smooched him. "Bye, Harry!" she said.

Then Harry turned around and he smooched...Ron.

"Bye, lovers!" said Harry.

Then Ron and Hermione turned around and smooched each other, while Harry took an amazing leap and fell off the cliff...the whole...two...feet.

He saw Snape down there. He walked up to Snape and smooched him.

Behind Snape he saw Professor McGonagall and Professor Dumbledore...smooching.

Harry turned away and covered his eyes.

"Oh, I'm sorry Harry, I didn't know you were there," said Dumbledore with a small laugh.

"I see you survived the Cliff of Two Feet," said Professor McGonagall.

For his bravery for jumping off the Cliff of Two Feet, he received 150 points for Gryffindor.

Harry didn't know how it worked, but he went along with it.

Well, it's here! On the way home from church, me and my mother stopped at Borders and got my 40-percent-off copy of Harry Potter. As soon as I'm done reading it I will be editing and reposting. However, I will not be posting on fanfiction, unfortunately. If anyone has an idea of where I should post, please email me.


Much Love,

P.S.: Thanks to everyone who has emailed me over the past few months. And especially thanks to the person that sent me my stories back. You are a lifesaver!

ATTENTION: It has come to my attention that many people have been looking for my Lily/James series and I have neglected to post where it can now be found.

"What I Like About You" can now be found at undre the name Serena. It is up to chapter six at this point and, no, I will not be bulk-posting my chapters. Take it slowly, you may be pleasantly surprised at the changes I've made.

Thank you to Ericsson for bringing the situation to my attention.

Much Love,
