I don't know exactly what to say about myself. Let's see... I am a grandmother of 8, 5 girls and 3 boys. I am in my 50's and obsessed with Harry Potter. I get very upset when someone says the books are just for kids. I live in the USA, but I would love to live in Harry's world.
I constantly have plot bunnies or stories running through my mind. I often find myself at work wishing for paper and a pen to jot down things I think of for my WIPs or for new stories.
I have several WIPs and lots of plot bunnies to work on, so keep checking for new stories from me.
I am a moderater of the Marauder Era category. I am also an admin on this site and the forums. I manage several of the sections on the Beta Forums and I am the Hufflepuff Head of House. I am also a Professor on the Beta Boards.
I am known in the Hufflepuff house and around the board as the Canon Queen. I am quick to find canon errors in stories, so if you are submitting especially to Marauder Era, make sure of your canon facts.

In the dead of the night, someone steals Harry's Marauder's Map.
Insanity, hilarity and catastrophe, of course! (This wouldn't be a humour story if it didn't, would it?)
As different people try to activate the Marauder's Map, the four infamous Marauders answer back, in their own wonderful style.

It’s coming, believe it or not. The Ministry doesn’t believe it, but who will then? It’s infuriating to know you’re invisible to society, but then there’s something exhilarating, entrancing about it. It’s dancing the devilish dance: provocative, teasing- leaving the viewers wanting more, or better yet, it’s like having an addiction.
An addiction with a purpose to be more precise… oh, and the occasional bite. Who are we then? We’re the out casted of the outcasts within a secluded society that further alienates us and leaves us utterly alone, but we’ve finally found each other so we’re not as alone. Things can change in an instance, though, and they already have. I have to confess: I’m scared, but I’ve already started to dance so I must keep dancing.
And besides, I don’t want the vampire or werewolf communities seizing control of the Ministry because I’ve already seen what they’ve done.

Was it possible to save two lives in the past without altering history? Was it possible to give his parents a future twenty years after they had supposedly died? Teddy Lupin thought so...

To Sirius it was sometimes a joke, sometimes not. Mostly it seemed that it was, which was why Remus began to long for something else, someone sincere who would understand him and not deny him, and he found that person where he least expected it.
This story was born from a conversation in chapter five of Too Much Love Will Kill You. If you were wondering who Remus' other lover was, this is that story.
It is not necessary to read TMLWKY to understand this fic.

It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.
No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.

Summary: "Oftentimes, it takes an enemy to reflect our own shortcomings."
Both were sent on a mission to retrieve two things from a person that one hated and one adored. They are sent back to the year 1871 even though the items they need to retrieve are in their present time.

Everything in life has a “what if?”
What if Voldemort didn’t try to kill Harry in the Atrium of the Ministry of Magic? What if he used the Cruciatus curse instead? What if Dumbledore didn’t come to the rescue until ten minutes after the curse had been executed? And what if Harry had been held under said curse for all ten minutes?
All the answers and more lie ahead…
Slightly AU as it is an alternate ending for Order of the Phoenix. Check out info. on this story on my profile!

Fred and George used to be inseparable. Now Fred is dead, and George, devastated by the loss of his brother, must continue living.
He was one half of a set that was never meant to be separated; a cup without a saucer, a key without a lock.
This is a heartwrenching story about the horrific consequences of war, and the terrible loss it leaves in its wake. Sadly, it is often the people left behind by Death that are damaged the most.
Alone. He had never been alone. As far back as he could remember there had always been two of him. It had never been an ‘I’ or a ‘me’, but always an ‘us’ and a ‘we’.
Told through George's eyes - this is his story.
He was broken now.

Sirius was killed by Bellatrix. When he lands headlong at his dead best friend’s feet, he is a little perplexed. All is soon explained, however. He has reached Heaven, and James is here to welcome him. Before he can begin to get used to life in Heaven, he must first “watch his life” on the large screen in front of him, because it will help him understand things better. And so, that’s what he does. From the very beginning, to the very end. You too, can follow him through the ups and downs. Follow him through the highs and the lows. Follow him through the laughter, the pain, and the romance. Follow him through the story of his life. This fic is a tribute to Sirius Black. It is not all marauder-era, although a bulk of it is, and that is why it’s in this category.
