hi, my name is sarah. i am 18 years old and i live in adelaide, australia. currently i am studying a cultural tourism degree at flinders university. i also work full time at a cinema, which i adore. i love movies, and i have many favourites. i have been called a starwars nerd. and a harry potter nerd. and a pokemon nerd. most describe me as silly, sometimes funny, lovable and honest. i hope one day to travel the world, being a cultural student, that is one of my passions, seeing how others live. dont tell me your from the usa, or i will quiz you for hours on end, because it is number one on my list of places to visit. i love rugby union, but i dont support the wallabies, i support the new zealand all blacks. confusing i know, but the short story is, my parents are from new zealand. so rugby is what i know and breathe. i also feel i was born at the wrong time. i would have been quite happy to have been an 80's teen.
cachet is a name i found on a website of "cool names to name your dog" apparently its a name of some perfume. although i have yet to come across a perfume called "cachet" (i collect perfume) but anyway, cachet means "an official seal, on a letter or document" or "a seal of quality or prestige" i am hoping that this name rubs off on the fan fic i will eventually write, because i want it to be as good as some of the writing i have read on this site. however i also heard that cachet is some form of seal for prescription drugs, so maybe not.
this is my email address if you need to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
but i hardly ever check it, so dont be offended if i dont answer.

Due to plot development in chapters nine and ten I've changed the warning from "None" to "Sexual Situations" for the rest of the story. In some chapters there are still punishments which do not qualify as “Abuse”; those are meant as reprimands for bad behaviour, a common method in the middle of the nineteenth century. If you can’t stand children being smacked by parents or others as well as any sexual situation occuring, do not read that story. You have been warned…

*Quote from The Epilogue*
Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.

Summary: A thousand years or more ago,
When I was newly sewn,
There lived four wizards of renown,
Whose names are still well known:
Gryffindor, strong and bold; Hufflepuff, just and patient; Slytherin, shrewd and cunning; and Ravenclaw, fair and wise. This much we know about the Hogwarts Four, whose endeavours have changed our lives so much. But the only one who knew them speaks only in song, and his job is to sort the new students--nothing more.
But deep within the library of Hogwarts, lies a book oft forgotten. Old and tattered, but with the words still shining bright, the ancient leather cover bears a name we all know well:
This is an adopted plot--original plot inspiration from girllikeme. Thanks for sharing!

A Marauder-era fic - this story takes a look at all the characters we've come to love (and hate), as well as an OC or two thrown in for good measure. Follow the Marauders through seven years at Hogwart's, with appearances from the infamous Black sisters, Lucius Malfoy, Regulus Black, and of course the one and only Severus Snape.
There are a bunch of pairings in this story (although romance is not necessarily the central theme) to include James/Lily, Lucius/Narcissa, a splash of Lucius/Bella and unrequited Snape/Lily, and finally, plenty of Sirius/OC. Enjoy!
Over 120,000 reads! Wow! Thanks everyone!

It's the one thing everyone must do. You can't avoid it, you can't bargain with it, you just do it. It hurts sometimes, hell, it hurts most of the time, but it's also the most natural thing in the world. One of those rare things that makes us human.
This story is included in the Epilogues story arc, however it is a side story that can be read at just about any time. it is most favorable, however, to wait until reading Epilogues Part I for certain thematic reasons.

On Harry's seventeenth birthday, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny decided to grant him a very big wish. Rated 3-5 for a scene in the last chapter. --
This is the second story of the Epilogues story arc, and should be read after reading Right Here, but before starting in on the Epilogues series itself.
