No, I'm not a parasitic fish, I'm a hyper, klutzy, random sophomore girl. Anyway, I'm really random and know all the words to "Knights of the Round Table" from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (love that movie), as well as most Les Miserables songs, by heart! I also want to be either a web designer or a writer of some sort when I grow up, but working with dolphins would be fun, too! I can solve a Rubik's Cube in 53 seconds and I LOVE chess. I also love my school's chess team captain. So is it any wonder that I love chess? Well, I didn't know he was the captain at first, so it's more like an added perk...
I am a proud Slytherin on the Forums. I banner and beta.
Favorite characters: Remus, Tonks, Luna and Sirius
OTP: Remus/Tonks, Neville/Luna, Tom/Minerva (Schmergo's drabble convinced me of this), Dumbledore/McGonagall and Sirius/Luna
Favorite creatures: thestrals and basilisk
Favorite writers: J.K. Rowling (of course), Victor Hugo and Dave Barry, all of whom I wish I could have just a shred of their talent!
I also write original fiction at The Red Chair. I'm Remora_The_Random. And feel free to add me on Live Journal, if you want. Just let me know how I know you so I don't go into cardiac arrest.
I may strike you as insane, but that's fine. I am, after all, the girl who named her rubber chicken "Gaylord Fontaine II," named the basilisk in COS Joe and gets up on her chair at lunch and sings random Monty Python and/or Les Miserables songs, as well as shouting things like "I'm on tv!" "You're my grandpa?" and "I'm magic!" in the middle of school, though none are strictly true. Yup. That's "Remora in a nutshell." Emphasis on "nut."
In closing, I would like to leave you with these words of wisdom: the coconut doesn't have a zipper.
Remora the Random

Summary: Hermione and her two best friends, Harry and Ron, are on a trip with their sixth year Herbology class to Bodmin Moor. While searching for magical plants, Hermione stumbles on a door in the ground that leads her and the boys to the crumbling mansion of the time-travel obsessed wizard, William Rashleigh. After her encounter with Rashleigh, Hermione finds herself trapped in a time where magic is feared, witches are hunted, and the punishment for being able to do magic is death. Can Hermione survive The Salem Witch Trials?
A/N: This story is not for the faint at heart. The descriptions of death in the fic will be somewhat graphic and not suitable for young and impressionable readers.
I am BeautifulDreamer07 of Gryffindor House rising up to the answer the prompt. A Shift In Time, in the Spring Challenge.
Summary: A year and a half after the end of the war, everything is going well for Tonks; she’s newly married and has recently been promoted. But is all the hard work beginning to take its toll? Mindless fluff. RL/NT.
Summary: Her mother gave her her name? The madwoman? The one that, she now hears, cursed at her sister and disowned her? Seven cycles in the life of Nymphadora Tonks.
Summary: Ron Weasley has started having some very odd dreams. What do they mean? More importantly, can they help the trio to finally defeat Lord Voldemort? A Ron-centric fic written for HP Quills for a Cause.
Dedicated to my husband who always helps me see the big picture.
Summary: During a late night Order discussion between the two, Tonks and Remus get sidetracked, but Remus pulls things to a stop when he thinks of the possible consequences. Will an argument arise? And if one does, what will come of it?
Summary: After the war, Snape is on sabbatical and Remus is filling in for DADA. Wading through scrolls of assignments, he begins to suspect one particular essay is wifely mischief managed.
Summary: The Order of the Phoenix and the Death Eaters are locked in battle over a highly important magical artifact known to most as Voldy's Deathpants, in bold letters like that. However, they go about battle in a, er, highly unusual way-- a Quidditch match!
Probably the silliest thing that's ever appeared on this site, featuring highly OOC behaviour.
Deathpants is a team of writers consisting of Mind_Over_Matter, cmwinters, wendelin the wierd, and Schmerg_The_Impaler. Our story was written in Round Robin format. This (and our deranged minds) explains its randomness. Enjoy!
The insanity of the Deathpants has gotten to the mods! This ridiculous story WON the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Humour Story!
Summary: For Lord Voldemort, life is going swell, and everything is juuust peachy... until a ghostly visitor arrives. EXTRAORDINARILY silly.
EDIT: For some bizarre reason that I can't fully comprehend, this story WON the "Things that Go Bump In The Night" challenge in the Winter's Tale Challenge.
Summary: What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) 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.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.
RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!
Summary: Remus Lupin sits by a fire and ponders over his life, wife, and child.
Summary: "Molly, she'll get over it. After a long time, the pain will leave and she'll be left with-"
"Nothing. Can't you see? She's given it all to you."
Summary: He looked down at this feet and let out a faint laugh. “You know Tonks, you’ve got a lot in you. I’ll see you around.” And with a smile and a wink of the eye, Remus Lupin vanished.
Summary: The war is over, and newlyweds Remus and Nymphadora Tonks have decided to take a well deserved holiday. Too bad for Severus Snape that he just happens to be heading in the same direction. Warning: A bit of sexual innuendo and some references to gambling. Posted prior to DH.
Summary: In every story, there are missing scenes: smaller stories that don't make it into the main plot, but that subconsciously happen all the same. Harry Potter is no different — behind the scenes were the makings of a love that surprised us all.
Summary: Remus worries why his wife comes home late so often.
Summary: All his life, Remus has known one thing: Love is not his friend. Love is the enemy for someone like him, which is why he denies it to himself. However, that denial could prove fatal as he and the woman he loves are sent on a mission that risks everything.
A/N: Rated 6th-7th years for later chapters (violence, mostly, but concepts that kids can't comprehend, like noble sacrifice and possibly some sexual content).
Summary: Ron plays chess with Harry while contemplating ruthless choices and options. HBP Spoilers.
Summary: Tom believes he can seductively coax secrets from Dumbledore's most trusted student...
Summary: *One shot* It is Lily and James's fifth year, and they have to endure many extremely dull classes. To pass the time, they swap notes. This is a collection of most of those notes ... and the madness that inevitably ensues.
