I'm a small town girl from the Central United States. I currently work for my local police department as the over night dispatch, which is actually pretty cool - I get to know all the dirt on everyone! One of my favourite past times is spending time with my family and friends, though I also enjoy hiking, fishing, singing, and reading - as if you hadn't already guessed that last one!
Favourite Music Artist: Right now it's a toss up between Live, Sugarcult, and Fergie. I will listen to pretty much anything though, as long as it's not disco or techno!
Favourite Movie: Stardust, which I recently had the pleasure of viewing and have since fallen in love with!
Favourite TV Shows: ANTM, Psych, Burn Notice, The Closer, My Boys, all things CSI, LIFE, and Law & Order: CI & SVU.
Favourite Authors: JK Rowling, Dean Koontz, Tess Gerritsen, and Richard Laymon(R.I.P)

Summary: Set in a world where HBP and DH never unfolded, Draco Malfoy finds himself facing an unnerving challenge: making peace with Hermione Granger.
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: There was something about him that made him irresistible to her. Siobhan Murphy will go to any lengths to ascertain her deepest desires - but when the object of those desires is a married man twice her age with secrets darker than she can imagine, she will find herself caught in a scandalous liaison that she can't walk away from. Not Canon-Compliant.
Summary: What does it mean to be a Gryffindor, to be brave? Ginny Weasley knows. She’s seen self-sacrificing courage save her life. One by one, those who loved her have fallen, and she stands alone, facing the greatest evil of her time. Can she call on this knowledge to save herself, or will she, too, be lost?
Summary: It is a blustery day in Hogsmeade, and Arthur and Bill Weasley are minding their own business. That is, until they each receive letters instructing them to mind each other's business in a most intrusive and rather final sort of way.
But this is not just about Arthur and Bill. They happen to be a small part of a much bigger, much more ambitious scheme that they know nothing about, run by a frighteningly powerful organization. What exactly is going on, and what exactly will Arthur and Bill do?
Written as an entry for the Gauntlet, by Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff house (most of the Bill bits) and Neville's Girl of Slytherin house (most of the Arthur bits). Probably the strangest thing either of us has ever written.

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Rose Weasley has always liked romance of the fairytale variety. She thinks she’s found her Prince Charming in Daniel Corner, the handsome Ravenclaw Seeker. But into her life enters Scorpius Malfoy, and it’s unclear whether he’ll be leaving it anytime soon. Suddenly it’s as if Rose is trapped in one of those devastatingly romantic soap operas her mother keeps telling her about… only that she’s not sure if it will have a happy ending… if she will have a happy ending.
Some said he had been a Death Eater, others that he had fought bravely for the Ministry during the war. Nearly everyone took advantage of his fabulous hospitality. And fabulous it was; in his superb Wiltshire home he gave the most amazing parties, and not the least remarkable thing about them was that few people could recognise their host. He seemed to be a man without a background, without history, whose eyes were always searching the glittering crowds for something… or someone?
Summary: The curtains call, beckoning a man to his death.
As a Chaser for the Harpies, Angelina Johnson is used to chasing goals, but when the team is sold and Blaise Zabini takes over management, she feels more like a Quaffle...and one that might not mind being handled.
Summary: Sometimes, the most trivial things we do can mean the world to others.
Who could ever have guessed that befriending a lost soul could change one’s life and so much more, forever?
In the end, everything comes down to one thing: love. Compassion is the greatest gift given to mankind. Once understood, one finds that just a single lifetime is simply not enough to love and be loved. For some people, it’s too late, it’s gone, goodbye. But for others; a moment of love, simply one moment, can be enough to last a thousand lifetimes.
Summary: Each moment is a decision, defined by the circumstances. Who knows? Had it not been for an overprotective cousin, perhaps Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy could have been the best of friends. Perhaps in one point in time and space, they are. As it happens, their relationship was defined by one catalytic factor, James Potter, and now,they are sworn enemies.
This story is a chronicle of their first year at Hogwarts, and their last. It is a tale of happenstance and familial influence, of an enmity that was not theirs to decide. Read and find out how such an enmity can influence the lives of two innocent children and wreck them. Will the injury last forever?
Due to my heavy work-schedule, this fic will be on hold till early June. My apologies to all.
The whole world has gone crazy, tipped on its side, changes happening so quickly that Harry can’t keep track of them all. He isn’t at the centre of it anymore – he’s drifting peacefully somewhere on the very outer rim, and he likes it this way, and he never wants to go back.
He has a dream one night. Soft hands lift him out of his bed. He opens his eyes and their faces are like maps of a country he’s never been to but has always wanted to go. They say they’ll take him to a place where all he has to is breathe.
He says okay.
After Voldemort's defeat, Harry struggles to come to terms with love, death, and the end of innocence. One-shot. Rated for very, very mild sexual implications.
Summary: A quiet evening is about to turn considerably less so, as Severus Snape has a visitor he could not pretend to have not expected, and would never admit to have dreaded...
He stared down at the drying pool of blood on the floor and thought with grim satisfaction, I am not so easy to kill.
Severus Snape leaves his old life behind, taking with him the hope that one day Nymphadora will follow.
Summary: They came from different worlds. They had different beliefs. What should have pulled them apart only drew them closer together.
He was Muggle-born, a Hufflepuff, and a slob. Andromeda Black could not understand why a boy with messy hair and untidy ways was so popular until she realised no one enjoyed life like Ted Tonks. It wasn't a secret that he liked her...and she didn't like his girlfriend.
Summary: Fifteen-year-old Harry Potter wakes up in his cupboard under the stairs at number four, Privet Drive with no memory of the past five years of his life. What happened to his memory? What do his strange dreams mean? And most importantly, how will he survive in a school for incurably criminal boys?
This is primarily a mystery, with a bit of shippiness thrown in here and there. Of course, if I told you WHO is involved in the shippiness, that would ruin part of the mystery, wouldn’t it?
This story takes place immediately after OotP (and thus disregards HBP).
Summary: Post Hogwarts: Ron and Harry are sent to America for Auror training. Ron spends his last night in England with Hermione, and after returning two years later, he finds Hermione with a fifteen-month-old baby ...
Summary: There have been lovers, and dreams, and plans that were made, but nothing will come of those particular ashes. Blaise waits at a train station. Blaise/Hermione
