Andromeda and Ted, Shifts (and don't worry why I'm asking two characters, it's basically one question):

Boy or Girl?

-Kiks
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: February 14th, 2005 11:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, Andi's got her heart set on a boy this time around

Well, we've already raised a girl.

I'd be happy with either flavor.

We're still waiting. We don't know if, let alone which. But we're hoping. Aren't we?

I'm hoping.

Remus... How did you react after you found out about "The Prank"?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: February 14th, 2005 11:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
I didn't know what to think, really. I felt guilty for frightening Snape, though James said it wasn't my fault.

Of course, I knew whose fault it was. And I told James to keep him away from me for a few moons. It's not that I blame him, of course. Stupid mistake, I'm sure he didn't think it through. But I suspect... I didn't trust the Wolf with him.

Ok, well, not sure this is really a fair question, as it doesn't deal with the timeline of the fic itself, but I always wanted to know what happened next. So, to Father's Heart!Leia, after all those years of friendship with Vader, how did you emotionally react to the events on the Death Star?

And, to Peter in Doll Army, did Bellatrix ever try to get back at you for protecting Dora?

So, to Father's Heart!Leia, after all those years of friendship with Vader, how did you emotionally react to the events on the Death Star?

I didn't believe them.

Well, I sort of believed that he might have come through for Luke, but see, I knew him. I knew he could do that sort of thing, then turn around the next minute and do something reprehensible, so I didn't exactly put the same weight on it that Luke did. I didn't trust it one bit.

And, to Peter in Doll Army, did Bellatrix ever try to get back at you for protecting Dora?

Eh... er... What do you think? What could I do? She's stronger I am, and... I... :hyperventilates: D'you know what she specializes in? You saw what she did to Frank and Alice when they crossed her!

Dora: After you were old enough to understand what Sirius supposedly did, did it make you feel guilty or anything?

(And I wouuld only ask that one to a person who isn't real, don't worry - I'm not Rita Skeeter!)

Remus: What do you think of the inquiries that you are dating Sirius?

(Because I'd like to know what he'd think of that!)

After you were old enough to understand what Sirius supposedly did, did it make you feel guilty or anything?

Guilty? I don't reckon it made me feel guilty, except when I sometimes pretended that it hadn't happened and he was my friend again, which I suppose made me feel a bit guilty, wishing to play dolls with someone who'd killed thirteen people. Mostly, I was angry, same as everyone else. But I had my Mr. Lupin, and he helped me out.

Remus: What do you think of the inquiries that you are dating Sirius?

I'm sorry... what was the question? Oh, right. Er... well... what? Right, yes. Sirius is a dear friend, and a brother to me, and I wouldn't insult him by saying that the idea is somehow revolting and horrid. He's a good man. But for heaven's sake--why can't a brother be a brother without such a question being raised?

Peter - Do you want to make a family, someday? A wife, maybe some children?

Do you think you'd be capable of keeping them safe?

I think maybe the time for that passed a long time ago. At the moment, I'd be happy to be the Weasley family's pet rat again.

Question for Remus in "I Hear Him Laughing":
When you say "That's what hurts most. I know something about that." regarding losing a supposed friend, who are you refering to?

Also, I'd love to hear a comparison of Ginny and Dora... :-)

When you say "That's what hurts most. I know something about that." regarding losing a supposed friend, who are you refering to?

Sirius, at the time. Looking back, I would express the same sentiment, but it would be Peter I had in mind.

Also, I'd love to hear a comparison of Ginny and Dora... :-)

A comparison? That's difficult. They were very different girls, and have grown into quite different women. Well, Ginny is still a girl, but she's certainly growing up.

Dora is fearless where Ginny is brave. I didn't always make a distinction between the two until Dora explained it to me--it doesn't take vast courage to go into a situation you're actually not afraid of. Ginny has her fears, and she faces them. Dora is exuberantly unafraid of the world.

Dora is quite secure in her identity and her feelings, and, to put it mildly, persistent in her affections. To her, the thought of no longer loving someone she has loved is an abomination. Ginny is more willing to shelve her feelings and wait for new feelings to come along. For her, it's more important to be brave enough to turn her back and move on. In a nutshell, that's why Dora was a Hufflepuff and Ginny a Gryffindor.

This is for Percy, from Invisible: if you remember the night Fred and George were taken, do you remember Snape at all?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: February 14th, 2005 11:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
When I first came, I thought he looked familiar, but I couldn't place from where--I was quite young, you know--and I had good thoughts about him, even though Bill and Charlie were quite negative. But he was quite vicious with me, and I forgot soon enough, which I suppose was his intent. He doesn't seem keen on being liked.
mrs_who From: mrs_who Date: February 15th, 2005 12:05 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, wow. Where do I start?

Dumbledore: Have you ever been in love or in a relationship? How do you really feel about Minerva McGonagall? Who is the Half-Blood Prince?

Arthur: What made you fall in love with Molly? Why so many children?

Snape: Are you a homosexual? What do you think of the pairings fanfic authors have created for you?

Kreacher: WHY did you do it????

Remus: We already know Dora's dreams for the future - what are yours?

Ted: Can you see into the next book and tell us who dies or what happens?

Oh, I'm lopsided in favor of the men! Let's give one to the ladies:

Minerva: If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?


Happy Valentine's Day, Fern!

Dumbledore: Have you ever been in love or in a relationship? How do you really feel about Minerva McGonagall? Who is the Half-Blood Prince?
There are many sorts of relationships, mrs_who, and I have partaken in a vast array of them. I never married, a decision I regret somewhat, but I have had a part in the lives of thousands of children, including Minerva McGonagall, of course. She grew into a most interesting ally, and perhaps, were there not seventy years between us... Old man's regrets, perhaps. And I'm afraid I cannot answer the last, at least until late July.

Arthur: What made you fall in love with Molly? Why so many children?
I fell in love with Molly the first time she took a wooden spoon to Polly Parkinson when Polly insulted me. It was in potions class, fifth year. As to the children, we took them as they came and were thankful for them. I don't recall ever discussing the subject.

Snape: Are you a homosexual? What do you think of the pairings fanfic authors have created for you?
The question is impertinent, and the answer irrelevant, but as you've forced us to swallow Veritaserum, the truth is that I have yet to meet anyone of any persuasion with whom I would be willing to sleep unarmed, let alone naked. That should answer the second question as well.

Kreacher: WHY did you do it????
Kreacher has served the House of Black for a century! Master was destroying all of Mistress's pretty things! Master was unworthy.

Remus: We already know Dora's dreams for the future - what are yours?
Thankfully, they're the same. A stable home, children, affection... I'm afraid I'm not terribly interested in great drama in my future. I should add that I would like to return to Hogwarts, provided a more secure method is reached to protect others at the full moon.

Ted: Can you see into the next book and tell us who dies or what happens?
I ought to put up the spooky voice I use for Andi when she asks about Quidditch scores... Hmmm... I predict that Draco Malfoy will have had lessons from You-Know-Who over the summer, and that Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour will get married.

Minerva: If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?
I would have paid much closer attention to Peter Pettigrew. No student under my care should have grown up to do what he did.

Hermione: So, out of all the possible Shakespearean names out there, what made you pick Regan? Is there a story behind this, or were you just anticipating that your daughter would have a brilliant career in ocular surgery?

Oh, heavens, I knew that would come up, and I'm afraid the truth is that I just made a list of Shakespeare names, and went over it with Ron to find names he wouldn't hate. He liked "Regan" best for a girl, so she was our firstborn.
olympe_maxime From: olympe_maxime Date: February 15th, 2005 02:36 am (UTC) (Link)

Whoa..

Thanks for the opportunity.

My first question is to Molly Weasley - I know it's outside your timeline in Shifts, so it's not fair and square, but I have to ask:
I know you're not a fundamentally malicious person - but malicious you were when you accused Sirius of having been an inadequate guardian to Harry all these years because he was too busy serving time in Azkaban. How could you do that? Do you even regret saying this to him? Would you regret it if he wasn't dead right now?

And my second question is to Remus:
How honest were you with Sirius about your reasons for keeping your distance from Harry? Are you afraid of how he might respond to you? That he might come to depend on you too much for your own comfort? And now that Sirius is gone, how are you going to approach Harry? How far are you going to let him into your life - emotionally?

Thanks again for the opportunity. Really. I've always needed to ask these questions.

Oh, I regretted it that night. My mouth gets away from me sometimes. I thought he was giving Harry dangerous ideas, and... let it get away from me a bit. All I can say in my own defense is that I was terrified every moment in that house, all that summer, and I needed to get control.

That he might come to depend on you too much for your own comfort? And now that Sirius is gone, how are you going to approach Harry? How far are you going to let him into your life - emotionally?
Honesty is a relative concept. The truth is that I did want to give them time together. Mainly because I assumed that it was what Harry would want. I mean, let's face it--Sirius is a good deal more interesting to a teenage boy than I am. Daring ex-convict and all, versus a patched-up schoolteacher. I'm not afraid of Harry depending on me. I'm more afraid of me depending on his dependence, if that makes even small bit of sense. It's a powerful feeling, to be needed... and what if I let him down again? But I'm all he has left. I'll let him come in as far as he wants to come. Though of course I won't push, if he's not interested. The Weasleys, after all, have been his family for a good amount of time, and I'm sure he's more attached to them than he is to me.

Remus:

What role did you play in Harry's life before James and Lily died?

(And why oh why aren't you playing a larger one now?)
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: February 15th, 2005 03:39 am (UTC) (Link)
All of us loved Harry as a baby. In a lot of very real ways, we shared him with James and Lily. I was the one who could always get him to calm down. It frustrated James sometimes because Harry was always so excited to see him that he wouldn't go to sleep. Only Lily and I could get him to quiet down. Needless to say, this made me popular choice for minding them when they went out in the evening. I used to sit on the sofa with him and read him stories. His favorite was a bit of a rhyming one about cats that Lily'd had as a child. I think he liked it because it had an even rhythm. He learned to say "Mama," but he was having a devil of a time with "Dada," so one night while they were out, I took a photo of James and we practiced saying "Da" and pointing to it, so when James came home, Harry pointed and said "Da-Da," and...

That was more than you asked for, wasn't it?

Remus: What was your history with Lily before she and James started dating?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: February 15th, 2005 03:41 am (UTC) (Link)
We liked one another for a time, but it never got anywhere. You have to understand that James was besotted with her from day one, and I lived in the same dormitory as he did. It would have been... uncomfortable... had I chosen to act on anything I may have felt for Lily.

For Dora: Did your dad ever play or sing "Yellow Submarine" or "Octopus's Garden" by the Beatles to you when you were a little girl?

For Ted: Dodger was a cool cat. Whatever became of him? How long did he live? And if he lived to see it, how did he adjust to having to share you with Andromeda and Dora?

For Minerva: You must have been so glad to be sorted into Gryffindor. The difference in you between when we first meet you in "Of a Sort" and the confident, formidable woman you became later is remarkable. Did you make friends and find your "true self" in Gryffindor? And did you play for the House Quidditch team?

For Dora: Did your dad ever play or sing "Yellow Submarine" or "Octopus's Garden" by the Beatles to you when you were a little girl?
I definitely remember the first one, though I'm not sure about the second one. Probably, though. I think he sang every Beatles song to me. If I went over and asked him to sing me the second one now, he'd probably do it.

For Ted: Dodger was a cool cat. Whatever became of him? How long did he live? And if he lived to see it, how did he adjust to having to share you with Andromeda and Dora?
Dodger made it up to my sixth year. He was an old cat, and he slipped away. It took him some time to get used to Andi, but when he went she had her hand on his poor old neck while I held him, and if she tried to move it, he mewed until she put it back. We cried a fair bit, and buried him in the Forbidden Forest.

For Minerva: You must have been so glad to be sorted into Gryffindor. The difference in you between when we first meet you in "Of a Sort" and the confident, formidable woman you became later is remarkable. Did you make friends and find your "true self" in Gryffindor? And did you play for the House Quidditch team?
That's all one question, really. Yes, I played for the House team--I was a seeker. I never became particularly popular, but I knew who I was, and I had a little crowd of friends. We were working up to war then, as well, and Gryffindor was gearing up to fight. We took it more seriously then, because of the Muggle war brewing at the same time. So my being a bit seriouis was perhaps not as much of a drawback as it might otherwise have been.

A few more questions, because I really like this...

To Dora- what was the first thing that went through your head when Remus finally kissed you?

To Remus- Dora mentions that she was told you once punched Sirius when you were in school. Why?

To PreMemoryModified!Dudley- Be honest; right before your memory modified, what did you really think of Mr. "Lewis"

And, I second beaustylo's question.
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: February 15th, 2005 03:52 am (UTC) (Link)
To Dora- what was the first thing that went through your head when Remus finally kissed you?
A whole box of fireworks. Nothing wordy.

To Remus- Dora mentions that she was told you once punched Sirius when you were in school. Why?
It was sixth year. We'd run into my friend Elizabeth and Sirius... Sirius didn't understand then, not really, about lycanthropy. He went off on a tear about how awful she must be, and it seemed like he was saying how awful I was, because I knew I wouldn't have done any different, and... it just came out. Sirius finally got wise to a few facts of my life a few months later when he tried to frighten Snape.

To PreMemoryModified!Dudley- Be honest; right before your memory modified, what did you really think of Mr. "Lewis"
For a freak, I guess he was an all right sort of bloke. Stood by what he said and all.

Remus: If you could go back in time and prevent yourself from being bitten, would you? Or would you be too afraid that it would change who you are today?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: February 15th, 2005 03:55 am (UTC) (Link)
I am not a big fan of time modification. It's impossible to predict all of the possible outcomes. I would never use a device to return myself to the time, quite frankly because there is not chance at all that I wouldn't do everything possible to prevent that bite, and I just don't know what that would change, not just for me, but for everyone around me.

Then again, everything might have worked out brilliantly.
