The Dog Star [Contact
My name, as it says above, is Bethan, and I'm 14, and live in the U.K., and according to people, because I've told you that you will hunt me down and kill me. ARRRRRGHHHH!!
Thanks to everyone who read my first story 'Badger, Raven, Serpent and Lion' I am eternally endebted to all of you!
My next story should soon appear if all goes well, it's Marauder Era, which is incidentally, my favourite era.
Update: The Marauders story (Remus Lupin's diary) is now up, and chapter 2 of both should be here shortly.
Favourite Characters: REMUS JOHN LUPIN (I love him dearly), Sirius Black, Luna Lovegood, Kreacher, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore, Snape, Flitwick and Stan Shunpike.
Most Evil Characters: VOLDEMORT, Bellatrix, Fenrir Greyback.
Character I would most like to beat around the head with a large plank of wood: Cornelius Fudge.
Fav Book: Deathly Hallows (DUH!)
Fav book other than Harry Potter: Wuthering Heights
THE REASON WHY MY PENNAME IS WHAT IT IS WHEN IT SHOULD BE SOMETHING TO DO WITH REMUS LUPIN:
I gave myself my penname when I was writing a fic that referencing 'the dog star' in some vague way in it and I thought that I was being dead clever (I wasn't) in calling myself this. As it happens, that particular story never got accepted because, quite frankly, it wasn't very good, so now I'm stuck with a name that I don't want. Alas.
And yes, I am a member of my own favourite author thing. That shows how many friends I have. *sniff*
GIVE ME HUGS!!!

Summary: Hullo! I'm Lily Evans, and I'm starting my seventh year at Hogwarts soon. I'm Head Girl with James Potter, which I'm secretly thrilled about, emphasis on the secretly. Seriously secretly, like even to me, kind of. Well, I must be off!
Hey! Lily! Oh, sorry, so rude of me, I'm Anna, Anna Boothe. Lily's uh, hold on let me grab my trunk, it's just slipped out of my fingers. Where was I? Oh yes, Lily's best friend. We're inseperable, really. Like two peas in a pod and whatnot. Where is she, anyway? Er, well it was nice meeting you, I've got to go catch the train!
Oi! Did you just see Evans? I've been looking for her and I thought I just saw her here. I'm rather excited about being Head Boy with her; it'll give me a chance to show her the real James Pot--
What are you going on about, Prongs? Why are you even listening to this nutter? We've got to catch the train. Probably talking to you about Evans, am I right? He would talk to a tree about Evans if he could. Moony, Wormtail, help me get this starry-eyed git onto the train before it leaves without us...
You two are helpless, don't you think, Pete?
More helpless than two Grindylows out of water...
This is Lily and Anna's final year at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Lily is hiding her secrets from everyone, even herself. Anna is as noncommittal as ever. James is getting his act together. Peter is thinning out. And unbeknownst to everyone, Remus and Sirius are gallivanting off to unseen parts of the castle. Amidst all said frolicking, Lily notices something very strange about the single days that Remus Lupin is missing and all tranquility goes awry.
[RLSB: Slash is minor and for a later chapter :]]

Dumbledore has a very good idea. True, it may be termed as 'illegal,' but when it concerns the happiness and futures of two sixth-years, James Potter and Lily Evans, 'illegal' isn't really important, is it? His portraits agree.
And while it could
be said that two inexperienced students should never be responsible for a mass construction project and the hosting of an international festival... well, the teachers of Hogwarts have never really paid attention to propreity, have they?

It's the Marauders' Seventh Year, and Remus, Peter, and Sirius are getting tired of James mooning over Lily. Their solution? Write an anonymous love letter, and leave it a classroom!
I'm sorry, but this fic is going on semi-permanent hiatus. I ran out of ideas

Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
