Summary: Hermione may not know it, but her cat is leading a life of his own within the walls of Hogwarts. Does he just chase Scabbers for sport, or is there more to the tale?
Summary: Raven Kettles is a dedicated Hufflepuff with a strong determination to become the best Quidditch player of her generation. James Potter is the latest of a long legacy of Quidditch players and a crowd favourite. Together, they are natural enemies on the Quidditch field. Problem for Raven is, she doesn't quite understand this; not yet.
When James proposes that the pair train and learn from each other, the naive Raven finds herself trapped in the Gryffindor's ultimate sabotage plan. However, the competitive and emotional rivalry between themselves and their houses take the situation to a whole new level, all leading up to that one final match.

Summary: Not all marriages are idyllic - not even for a hero. And however much we want someone to have a happy ending, love sometimes has a way of upsetting the equilibrium.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. To my knowledge all her heroes had the happy-ever-afters they deserved.
Summary: There is a boy in this orphanage, and something is not quite right about him.Written as a birthday present for lily_evans34/Rachel, who is lovely, talented and wonderfully funny. :) I hope you have a great day. Nominated for a QSQ in the Dark/Angsty category. Thanks to Kara and Carole for their help! This story would still be full of holes if it weren't for you two. DISCLAIMER: J.K.Rowling is not me. :p
Summary: He's getting married today. Why wouldn't he be elated?

Summary: Carrie McKinnon, soon-to-be seventh year Hufflepuff, is not going to let the war get her down. However, it is going to affect her in one way or another – and maybe that's a good thing.
This is for Carole/EquinoxChick, and much less than she deserves. You are an incredible, magnificent person, and I still completely fangirl you. If I ever get close to what you are/have now, just talent-wise and with all the ideas you always have, I'd be happy. I really admire you and what you do a lot, so don't ever change.
Muchas muchas Gracias to Nat/hestiajones for helping me out, event though she should have been in bed.
Summary: Sometimes, she liked mulling over the possibilities of a change, but would she ever act upon it?
Inspired by Round 4 Brawl: Week 2. Thanks to Kara/Karaley Dargen for a real-time AIM beta job and for all the courage she gives me.
Summary: Despite outward appearances, Tom Riddle has always had a certain curiosity when it comes to girls, but will curiosity drive him to lose the one thing he never thought he even had?
Summary: Harry must face the border between reality and illusion. In the process, he might be forced to sacrifice his most valuable possession: his sanity.
Summary: After learning that Harry isn't The Chosen One, Hermione is given the task of making sure the person who is, makes the right choices. It is going to take all her persuasive skills and patience though because the real Chosen One is Draco Malfoy!
Summary: Hermione and Lavender weren't particular friends. It was true they shared a dormitory, but for much of their school time they lived parallel and separate lives. Then Lavender helped Hermione get ready for the Yule Ball and that set off a chain of events that left both girls confused.
This story was inspired by a suggestion from Gina (Gmariam) and a drabble written for Natalie (hestiajones). This story is in no way 'caron -compliant' with Lavender, blue - a Gryffindor true.
Thank you Natalie for beta'ing this story.

The gift was the exact size of a ring box from a jewellery shop. One glance at it had been enough to send a chill down Lily's spine and almost enough to make her say, "You shouldn't have." She loved James, she just wasn't ready to get married.
Adelaide always thought she was a normal girl. She went to school, had some friends, and had parents and brothers that loved her.
Something changed the night of the accident, though, and her entire world turned upside down. Two years later, she learned of a whole new world in which she supposedly belonged.
Follow Adelaide's story as she goes from a small, scared girl to an independent young woman. Watch as she journeys through this new and frightening place, and learns her role in it.

I am ron lover of Gryffindor and this is my final for the Missing Moments class on the MNFF Beta Boards.
Summary: It's Christmas Eve, 1998, and Harry Potter is throwing a pity party. You could argue that Harry Potter is more justified than most in throwing such a party. Severus Snape, however, would be inclined to disagree with you.
I am LilyLunaPotter of Hufflepuff submitting to Prompt Four of the 2010 Great Hall Christmas Challenge.
For over four years, Dean Thomas had been sending his polite regrets to his mum, begging off of coming home for Christmas. But when he sensed discord in the most recent letter from his Muggle family, he decided that he needed to stop making excuses and start counting his blessings.
What he found when he got there, however, proved to be more than just a simple family gathering.
