Hi, I'm Judith (juju for short).

I know most people hate hugely long profiles, but well, deal with it.

I speak, read and write fluent French, Hebrew and English. I like reading and writing in English best although it's not my native language. Three of the things I love most are animals, music, and books. I play guitar (though nowadays 2 out of 3 people do), and I love drawing, reading, writing, listening to music, taking pictures, horseback riding and lots more.

Update June 15th: As you may have noticed, I've been taking a break from writing because I've been super-busy. I'll start updating The Later Years again in August though, as well as posting another chaptered-fic I've been planning. 'True Love Prevails' is on hold for the moment.

Another thing: While re-reading the first two chapters of TLY, I was a bit apalled by the number of wrong phrasings, typos and punctuation mistakes, so I'll get around to fixing that as soon as possible. I'm also currently trying to find a good beta for it since I'm having a bit of trouble with the continuity and keeping the characters IC, so if anyone's interested, I'll check out all possible candidates ;).


"Home bases":

Time Turner Talk Forum - #2-3 on the Harry Potter forums: The first place I joined when I came here, and I've been there ever since :) We're all a friendly, welcoming sort of commity, and anyone's welcome! We talk about anything, from serious debates to girl stuff, music, just chatter and OF COURSE- Harry Potter. If you come by, remember to introduce yourself first in the topic "Forum: Rules and Introductions". Administrator is the awesome Jazz E. Roisin. Check out her awesome fics!

The Pensieve Room - In the top 10 on the Harry Potter Forums - moves around a bit :). My second base, came to life a few months after TTT, but inhabited by the same types of people, and many of the gang travel between the two forums. There too you'll have a welcoming comittee well, that is if CoriOreo doesn't decide to go all bitchy on you - but she won't bite! Much. Forum games, debate thread, polls, links and recommendations, it's all there! Introduce yourself in "Introductions and Rules" before posting anywhere though :) Administrator: The Awesome SorchaSaoirse!Check out some of her stuff - especially you Dramione fans out there :)


My current stories:

The Later Years- A story of the next generation. Starts in May before James's first year at Hogwarts. Canon, sticks to JKR's brief description of the next generation in the DH epilogue. Harry and Ginny are married+3: James, Albus and Lily. Ron and Hermione are married + 2: Rose and Hugo. Mischiefs, adventures, growing up, and just family life is mostly what this fic is about.

True Love Prevails - In the End. - Short (4 chapter) fic. Lily/James, takes place in 5th year, a couple of days after the incident Harry witnesses in Snape's Pensieve (next to the lake afer the DADA O.W.L). Can the two Gryffindors with the heated temperament get along (or more)? Read and find out!

Bittersweet Love - Seems like people like oneshots best. Anyhow, this is a Lily/James one-shot that takes place during 7th year. Deals with Lily's mixed feelings about James and her difficulty to deal with his changing temperament. All's well that ends well :) Edited beg. of May for improvement).

The Times Have Changed - Song-fic, based on a song I wrote by that same name. Describes the way I think the Sev/Lily relationship could have ended, a year or so after the 'mudblood' accident when Lily is starting to find Severus's dark manias overwhelming.

A Fleurie Easter: My first Bill/Fleur - written for the Reviews Lounge "Easter Project". Tells of an Easter afternoon at the burrow when Fleur comes to visit. Romance/Humor. Edited beg. of May for minor punctuation errors.

Ideas for fics:

Hogwarts, a (love) History: This is something I've had in mind for a while and I'm really looking forward to starting it. Basically, it'll be a serie of 8-10 oneshots about different couples in their Hogwarts days. As soon as I'm finishing "True Love Prevails" I'll start this. :)


Fave HP quotes: (really JKR's, but why leave the illusion that that world does exist?)

I could quote the whole books, but I restricted myself to this very short piece:

If you're REALLY REALLY REALLY bored you can read them all...

Albus Dumbledore: (philosophical and not...there're too many!)

"To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."

"Fear of a name increases fear of a thing itself."

"Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them."

"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."

"Ah, music," he said, wiping his eyes. "A magic far beyond all we do here! And now, bedtime. Off you trot!"

"You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be."

"I see a light in the kitchen. Let us not deprive Molly any longer of the chance to deplore how thin you are."

"I take my hat off to you--or I would, if I were not afraid of showering you with spiders."

"It’s the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more."

"It is important to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then can evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated."

"There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends."

"What happened down in the dungeons between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret, so, naturally the whole school knows."

“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

Harry Potter (our hero!) :)

"Warrington's aim's so pathetic I'd be more worried if he was aiming for the person next to me."

"She's Ron's sister.
But she's ditched Dean!
She's still Ron's sister.
I'm his best mate!
That'll make it worse.
If I talked to him first-
He'd hit you.
What if I don't care?
He's your best mate!"

"I like a quiet life, you know me."

"There's no need to call me sir Professor."

"This is night, Diddykins. That's what we call it when it goes all dark like this."

"And they'd the Death Eaters love to have me," said Harry sarcastically. "We'd be best pals if they didn't keep trying to do me in."

"Why were you lurking under our window?"
"Yes -- yes, good point, Petunia! What were you doing under our windows, boy?"
"Listening to the news," said Harry in a resigned voice.
His aunt and uncle exchanged looks of outrage.
"Listening to the news! Again?"
"Well, it changes every day, you see," said Harry.

"Harry, don't go picking a row with Malfoy, don't forget, he's a prefect now, he could make life difficult for you..."
"Wow, I wonder what it'd be like to have a difficult life?" said Harry sarcastically.

"Well, I had one that I was playing Quidditch the other night," said Ron, screwing up his face in an effort to remember. "What do you think that means?"
"Probably that you're going to be eaten by a giant marshmallow or something," said Harry, turning the pages of The Dream Oracle without interest

"Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher. There was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head!"

"I don't go looking for trouble. Trouble usually finds me."

"I realised I can’t shut myself away or crack up. It could be me next, couldn’t it? But if it is, I’ll make sure I take as many Death Eaters with me as I can and Voldemort too, if I can manage it."

"You can try," said Harry indifferently. "But you seem cleverer than Fudge, so I'd have thought you'd have learned from his mistakes. He tried interfering at Hogwarts. You might have noticed he's not Minister anymore, but Dumbledore's still headmaster. I'd leave Dumbledore alone, if I were you."

“They’re evacuating the younger kids and everyone’s meeting in the Great Hall to get organized,” Harry said. “We’re fighting.”

Ron Weasley (we love him don't we? ):

"I want to fix that in my memory forever. Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret..."

"Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow,
Turn this stupid, fat rat yellow."

"But why's she got to go to the library?"
"Because that's what Hermione does. When in doubt, go to the library."

Hermione "Aren't you two ever going to read Hogwarts: A History?"
"What's the point? You know it all by heart, we can just ask you."

"Accio Brain!"

Hermione frowned at Ron.
"He's not a nutter, Ron--"
"His life's ambition is to have his head cut off and stuck up on a plaque just like his mother," said Ron irritably. "Is that normal, Hermione?"

"Well, we were always going to fail that one," said Ron gloomily as they ascended the marble staircase. He had just made Harry feel rather better by telling him how he told the examiner in detail about the ugly man with a wart on his nose in the crystal ball, only to look up and realize he had been describing the examiner's reflection.

"I've got two Neptunes here," said Harry after a while, frowning down on his parchment, "that can't be right, can it?"
"Aaaah," said Ron, imitating Professor Trelawney's mysical whisper, "when two Neptunes appear in the sky, it is a sure sign that a midget in glasses is being born, Harry..."

"...from now on, I don't care if my tea leaves spell 'die, Ron, die,' I'm chucking them in the bin where they belong."

"What's that?" said Ron, pointing at a large dish of some sort of shellfish stew that stood beside a large steak-and-kidney pudding.
"Bouillabaisse," said Hermione.
"Bless you," said Ron.

"You need your inner eye tested if you ask me."

"I don't need help," Ron whispered. "It's obvious what this means. There's going to be loads of fog tonight."

"When we come face-to-face with one down a dark alley, we're going to be having a shufti to see if it's solid, aren't we, we're not going to be asking, 'Excuse me, are you the imprint of a departed soul?"

"IF WE DIE FOR THEM, I'LL KILL YOU HARRY!"

"You should write a book translating the mad things girls do so boys can understand them." (and the opposite. free copies for all girls!)

“And what in the name of Merlin’s most baggy Y Fronts was that about?"

"Blimey, Neville, there's a time for getting a smart mouth."

Hermione Granger (every time I read that name I hear with a british accent XD ) :

"Oh Harry, don't you see? If she could have done one thing to make absolutely sure that every single person in this school will read your interview, it was banning it!"

"Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have."

"Just because it's taken you three years to notice, Ron, doesn't mean no one else has spotted I'm a girl!"

"The fates have informed me that your examination in June will concern the Orb, and I am anxious to give you sufficient practice.
Hermione snorted.
"Well honestly... 'the fates have informed her'... Who sets the exam? She does!"

"Are you sure that's a real spell? Well, it's not very good is it? I've tried a few simple spells myself and they've all worked for me. Nobody in my family's magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, it's the best school of witchcraft there is I've heard - I've learned all the course books by heart of course. I just hope it will be enough - I'm Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?"

"I hope you're pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed - or worse, expelled. Now if you don't mind, I'm going to bed."

"Ron," said Hermione in a dignified voice, "you are the most insensitive wart I have ever had the misfortune to meet."

"You-complete-arse-Ronald-Weasley!"

"Imagine losing fingernails, Harry! That really puts our sufferings into perspective, doesn't it?"


I, -Defier of Reason-, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews,
its age, or anything else.

I have joined the review revolution.
