Five years separate two kisses and two girls, a redhead, and a blonde. A lot can change in five years.I am Northumbrian from Ravenclaw House, and this is my entry for the February Love challenge in the Great Hall - category First Love - at the MNFF beta boards.
What could possibly be a higher form of madness than falling in love with someone who does not share your feelings? Well, for starters, if that person happens to be your best friend, then that certainly qualifies.
Albus Potter has fallen prey to this quandary, and through a self-exploratory journey, he learns much about what it’s like to love and what it’s like to lose himself.
This placed second in the February Great Hall Month of Love Challenge - First Love.
This fic was nominated for a 2010 Quicksilver Quill Award - Best Same-Sex Pairing.
Summary: There is always the question of what must be and what simply may be. No matter the answer, the question is one of the most difficult to grapple with - something both Remus and Tonks quickly find out.

Summary: If asked, Yvonne would have admitted that she was caught in-between two worlds. She was a witch - a Healer working at St. Mungo's, in fact - who used Muggle methods to help her patients. She had no connection to the Department of Mysteries, and could not have thought she was trapped between the present and the past, reality and nightmare, truth and lie, the living and the dead...
Not yet, anyway.
Summary: First problem: James Potter is Head Boy. Second problem: Why is he acting so different? The James Potter that Lily Evans knows is arrogant and conceited and loves Quidditch and bullying his “inferiors” with an unimaginable passion. This year he’s kind and charming and much more, shall we dare say it…mature. He is also much more distant than he has ever been in all her years at Hogwarts. In her seventh year, Lily finds out that there is much more to James Potter than meets the eye and together they set out on the long and precarious road to each other’s hearts.
Summary: Things just started looking up for Severus Snape. It seems like he's finally going to get the girl of his dreams. All that goes down the drain the day he calls her "Mudblood." Severus is learning to deeply regret what he said and tries everything to get her back. But will he succeed or will another man sweep her off her feet?
Summary: Christmas is a time for family, so Harry spends it with his. Both of them... UK English.
Summary: Voldemort's rising reign of terror, NEWTs, death attempts, a Headship, a tangled affair with James Potter, hilarity, grief, love, secrecy, maddness... it's almost hard to believe that I've survived to graduate. I am Lily Evans, and this is my 7th year.
Summary: After witnessing the brutal murder of her sister's boyfriend, Teddy Lupin, Dominique Weasley starts seeing his image everywhere.

But in the city of a thousand angels and majestic chapels, everything proves to be possible and Dominique is in for the adventure of a lifetime.
Summary: Relishing a moment's peace at the end of the day, Andromeda Tonks sits and talks to her family. They may only be photographs, but still she chats and shares her life with them.

Summary: In the world of Harry Potter, there is a love story that has not been told. That is the love story of Nymphadora Tonks and Remus Lupin. In this series of one-shots, you will explore a few of the many special moments in their lives together. Each of these Missing Moments is a glimpse into turning points in their life together.
I do not own anything you recognise in these one-shots. It all belongs to J.K. Rowling. I am just thankful to be able to play in her world for a little while.

Summary: This is the story of the rat, the stag, the werewolf, and the dog. They met by fate and were bound by a secret. Hopes, fears, love, tears, great and small, Marauders all. Their years at Hogwarts will always live on in infamy, although so many people say different things. Here is the frivolous first year of the tale of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs.
Summary: The Marauders have a knack for finding things, but are terrible at figuring out what they are. Luckily, Gryffindor is full of informative people...
This is a collection of related one-shots about confusion over Muggle objects. An excerpt from the first chapter, A Contraceptive Controversy:
James Potter was quite brilliant, or at least he’d like to think so. He had some of the best grades in the sixth year- they would probably be the best if he did his homework regularly. The Marauder’s Map had been his idea- even if he wasn’t brilliant, the Map certainly was. He was also an animagus. An (illegal) animagus at sixteen was something brilliant indeed.
So if he was so brilliant, then why was he incapable of identifying the object before him?
It’s not like it was particularly complex: all it was was a little piece of rubber, really. There’s nothing complicated about that, is there? No, not at all.
Summary: Keedie Dante has experienced many amazing things during her time at Hogwarts, including the hushed up drama that was the Chamber of Secrets. However, with two overachieving friends and a headmaster who does not even know she exists, Keedie feels that perhaps her seventh year will not be too spectacular. However, Dumbeldore sees her potential as a writer and enrols her in a simple writing course. Here, she meets the mysterious and terrifying Tom Riddle and they instantly get under one another's skin. She is drawn to his dark determination towards some unknown goal and he is fascinated by her, in every way. However, Tom's friends do not approve of Keedie and her unconventional ways and Keedie has many people trying to keep her away from the dark young man as well. Something inside tells Keedie that she can make him better, but even he assures her that this is an impossible task. But she's not one to give up easily...
"He is a dark one, Keedie. Try not to let him consume you entirely."
This story has the characters Albus Dumbledore, Armando Dippet, Moaning Myrtle, Rubeus Hagrid, Aaron Dante, Harry Potter, Ebony Abbott, Minerva McGonagall, Melena Creevey, Ollivander, Gregor Holmwood, Horace Slughorn and, of course, Tom Riddle and Keedie Dante...enjoy!
