Summary: Hermione had always known that there was something special about her, but she never considered just how different she might be . . .
Summary: When did it happen? When did Voldemort suddenly get so powerful? To where Dementors swallow the light, and screams can always be heard in the distance as Muggles are murdered?
Before Harry and his friends, there was another story, another war. Four boys faced their greatest fears and found themselves. They fought for what they believed in, and learned lessons along the way.
Summary: Two Slytherins. One is cold, the other is warm. One values communication, the other values silence. One has little use for humanity, the other is out to save the world.
And yet they are drawn together.

Summary: With McGonagall firmly entrenched as Hogwarts’ new headmistress, Harry is enticed to return for his seventh year under unique conditions. Aided by Ron and Hermione, he embarks upon a Horcrux search-and-destroy mission using the school as the base of operations. Recognizing that saving the wizarding world from the ultimate evil is a rather daunting task for a seventeen-year old wizard, the Order of the Phoenix steps in to assist Harry on his journey. It soon becomes clear, however, that not everyone has the same lesson plan in mind for our hero. As the headmistress attempts to lay a clever trap to reveal hidden agendas, Voldemort waits in ambush at the one site that Harry is sure to visit.
But before Harry can face his nemesis, he must face down the inner demons that plague his own life and truly grow into adulthood. His activities are punctuated with school pranks, Quidditch, parties, and the requisite amount of rule-breaking that readers have come to expect from the trio.
Summary: Priscilla Love, a sixth year at Hogwarts during Harry Potter's final year, is a hormonal, profanity-loving, teenage girl who has the hots for Seamus Finnigan and the hates for Lavender Brown. Her best friend Valerie is a shawl-wearing binge-emotionalist who could name a thousand uses for toadstools at a moment’s notice. Phoebe and Selene Rowle are notorious for their father’s crimes as a Death Eater, but not for any wrongs they committed (unless it’s for being the most mysterious set of twins Hogwarts has ever seen). So what, exactly, do these four have in common?
An attack on Dean Thomas leaves him severely injured and left in the care of St. Mungo's, where he learns that he can no longer communicate normally. He has secrets of where the Dark Lord's Horcruxes are, but without being able to talk or write, the only way he can communicate is through his art.
It's up to Harry, Ron, Hermione, and a dispatch of Ministry Officials to find these Horcruxes. It's up to Priscilla Love to tell her point of view of these events as she works with her peers to understand what the bloody hell is going on. Oh, and she must win Seamus' heart (and unoccupied side of the bed).
It’s a matter of life and death – for everyone involved.
Summary: When an eleven-year old girl starts making strange things happen she goes to the only person she can think of...Hermione Granger.

Summary: He wanders aimlessly down the boulevard, allowing himself to be jostled by the rush-hour crowd. It is Christmas Eve, 1994: his first Christmas Eve away from England. He finds it utterly confusing.

(It's been a while, I know, but I figured that if I added a couple of fics to MNFF, I'd be able to get my writing mojo back. We'll see. Fingers crossed. Lyrics are taken from Vienna Teng's "The Atheist Christmas Carol.")

Summary: When Harry broke into Dolores Umbridge's office to demand answers from Sirius and Remus, he little knew this would be the last proper conversation he would have with his godfather.
But what of the two that were left staring into the fire?
For Moony and Padfoot, it is a chance to re-live old times -- a chance to answer those questions long put aside.

Summary: The year is 2023. Katie Byrrde is just a normal eleven year old girl with an insane cat, a secretive best friend, and an obsession with pudding...okay, so maybe she's not that normal. But when a mysterious dude shows up at her door, things are about to get a lot stranger. Because...Katie? She's a witch. Suddenly she's heading off to a weird boarding school in the middle of Iowa, where she'll encounter new friends, old friends, pudding, bias, and more than her fair share of insanity. But there's a sinister side to this new life: a bunch of people are planning to kill her and those like her...and nothing will ever be the same.
The founders put some brains in meSo I could choose instead!
Now slip me snug about your ears,I’ve never yet been wrong…
Again in the tradition of You-and-Me Nuggets. Four drabbles. Four people. Four destinies.
The Four Houses.
Summary: Harry never expected to find out that Remus had a twin sister; nor did he expect the appearance of his mother's best friend. And he certainly didn't expect the history they, and Sirius, all shared. But perhaps these four links to Harry's parents can help him in his ever-lasting war with Voldemort - and in the process, give him the family he never had. AU OotP, with some canon left intact. NOT a Mary Sue fic.
Summary: It's a mask. We all wear masks. Some of us just never take them off.
Summary: Following on from 'The Order of the Pheonix', 'The Ruckus in the West Country' tells the tale of events, which transpire prior to Dumbledore collecting Harry from Number 4 Privet Drive at the beginning of 'The Half Blood Prince'.
During the worst summer in living memory countless terrors unfold, the destruction of the Brockdale Bridge, a slue of gruesome murders including the Bones and Vance killings, the Dementors abandon Azkaban, yet all are but preludes for what is to come as The Dark Lord unleashes his most terrible and devastating plan yet.
Days later a sacked and shamefaced Fudge hides the full horror of the event from the Muggle Prime Minister, whilst teams of obliviators work feverishly around the clock to remove all trace of the worst attack upon a wizarding community in a thousand years. Scares are healed but few will forget the images of Giants, Death Eaters, Dementors, fireballs and whirlwinds which fell from the darkness onto the helpless people of the West Country.
But even here in the quiet after the storm there is no peace, for within the ashes of this terrible nights deeds lie the seeds of greater evil to come.
Summary: The package arrived on a Thursday. Luna was able to tell instantly as it soared over the tables at breakfast, borne by some anonymous owl, that it was for her. It was the way her father wrapped packages.
She set aside her breakfast to clear a space for the owl, and waited patiently for it to land. Breakfast could wait a little. It happened every day, after all.
Summary: Teachers and students returned to Hogwarts the September after the battle to suspicion and prejudice. What can they do to pull all the houses together as a single Hogwarts, rather than separate houses under one roof?
This story is an entry in the Cooperative Challenge for June of 2009 by Cheshlin of Slytherin and ProfPosky of Gryffindor.
Summary: After the First War, wizards and witches everywhere were celebrating. But there were still losses, and deaths to be mourned; and in the end, there were more similarities between the good and the bad guys than one might like to think.
Molly Weasley had two brothers, who fought Voldemort and paid with their lives. She always thought that all what happened was horrible, but she never thought it would happen to her own family. And now, people everywhere are celebrating, and hardly anyone thinks of all the heroes that died anymore.
Avery was a Death Eater. He watched many people suffer and die, and never cared - until his friends die for Voldemort’s cause. And now, people everywhere are celebrating, and no one thinks of all the brave and good men the other side had lost.
