Summary: Mary Macdonald sows healing plants wherever she goes. She studied to become a master herb gardener after graduating from Hogwarts.

Summary: This is a poem I wrote originally to describe my experience at Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, Florida during Infinitus 2010. Through my creative writing course in college (for my English major), I received some comments about it and made the poem towards my experience of the series & the fandom. As soon as I registered for Alohomora, I noticed there was a section for submissions and my first thought was to share this poem.

Summary: Mallory is a young 25-year-old bakery owner who lives alone in the tiny apartment above her shop. Grief stricken that her grandmother has just passed away, she sifts through the boxes she's taken from the old woman's estate and stumbles across an old grimoire. As she turns through the pages, making out this word and that, she accidentally unlocks a magic spell. The creature that visits her in the dreamlike dawn seems like a fantasy. But he's very, very real.

Summary: Anurag Krishnan, tall, dark and charming is an impossible young man who is of the opinion that the world revolves around him and his thoughts and that no one ever cares enough for him.

However, an unexpected visit to an unknown past changes it all and in a matter of hours, Anurag changes from an immature, brash boy to a more accepting, calmer young man. So what was the secret that changed him? What was this memory of his, which despite being tucked away in the deepest pit of his brain caused him to come out and grow up?

Thank you very much to Natalie (hestiajones) for beta'ing this and for being supportive. Thanks also to my flist who have put up with a lot of wangst from me recently. Thanks also to Maple for an interesting point she made in an SBBC discussion about Oliver ...
This is Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff , writing for the Great Hall-iday Challenge - prompt 3 Operation:Mistletoe.
Due to an extremely prudish glitch affecting the boards, stories rated 6th-7th or Professors cannot be read, at the moment. For this reason I have temporarily lowered the rating, although this is really 6th-7th. You have been warned.

[Sexual Situations waring is for mild innuendo at one point - just to be on the safe side!]
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.
The boys are back for another year at Hogwarts. More laughter will follow... against a backdrop of trouble, secrets, inspiration, and a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher that could... well, wouldn't want to spoil the surprise would we? Here is the senseless second year of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs.
Summary: While Ginny sulks in her bedroom of The Burrow, her whole family in hiding and the love of her life on the run, she thinks. She thinks dark thoughts, and she think depressing thoughts. Mostly, she thinks of Harry.
Summary: The vital Battle of Hogwarts is abruptly put to an end by an intruder and an incident. Opening his eyes, Lord Voldemort finds his identity has been obliterated; he is now young Tom Riddle. He and the intruder Bella Reagan, someone he knew so long ago, must find a way to live, survive—but not quite underground.
After much frenzy, the Ministry states that the Dark Lord is gone and continues rounding up many confused, chaotic Death Eaters. Minerva McGonagall, the Headmistress, requires Hogwarts students to repeat their previous year so as to receive competent magical education. So when Harry recognizes Tom Riddle, he believes Lord Voldemort has infiltrated Hogwarts and leads an urgent investigation to find the truth of things.
Tom and Reagan are under scrutiny of the Trio and the professors even as several notorious Death Eaters elude capture and more old acquaintances, by happenstance, are found again. Security must be built by any means, and the opposition’s threats held at bay. There are few people any one can trust.
But it is as if they are looking through a veil, thinking through a veil. There’s a truth in the undercurrent of this unnatural flow of life in the Light, one that can’t seem to get past anyone’s mind. After all, the Light plays tricks, too.

Summary: She has managed to wreak more chaos in one day than the Weasley twins could in a typical week. What more could go wrong? How about a matchmaking witch, an unplanned pregnancy and an unexpected meeting?

As Snape finds himself moping around his old flat, he has unexpected visitors that change the rest of his existence. Can the trio help Severus? And will he, the man in the mask, revel more of his past?
Summary: A rap written for the MC Kreacher Challenge in Poetry Anyone. Slytherin's queen dishes it out. Loosely based around Swish and Flick Wrock and Tik Tok's beat by Ke$ha.
