-MY FICS ARE RATED:
Coming up with a fan fic that didn't just throw Hermione and Draco together within the first or second chapter was a bit of a challenge, but it was one I wanted to take on. Building up to that first kiss is important and shouldn't be rushed! By showing the difficulties each faces, one can see how they might change to be in an otherwise non-exsistant relationship!
I've gone back and merged a few of the previous chapters, as well as added a few interesting bits! There may be some gaps or confusing parts, but please bear with me as I try to make this story the way I had intended!
If you have read this once, pleas consider re-reading it, as there HAVE BEEN SOME CHANGES.
TOXIC is NOT YET COMPLETE and has been on hiatus! Chapter 20 is half-written; I will try to complete it after DH is released. It's highly possible that I will scrap the story all together and re-write it. Many apologies.
I am contemplating changing this to GENERAL FICTION, as it has not only romance, but mystery and a side of humor...
About A FAIR TO REMEMBER:
This is my second attempt at a Harry Potter Fan Fiction. In this story (which is 12 chapters long/19,400 words approx.), the Weasleys, Harry, and Hermione go to a Muggle fair. Despite a few simple rules set down by Mr. Weasley, things happen to the group that may or may not be beyond their control.
This story is as close to canon as I could get it (though Harry IS a bit OOC)--and takes place right after the end of the 6th book. You'll see a few familiar characters, as well as one new one--whom I hope to feature in a spin-off fic with Fred and George...!
THIS STORY IS COMPLETE--and YES it ends that way for a reason. Reviews are appreciated; I look forward to hearing from you about this new story!
**POSSIBLE UPCOMING STORIES:
About DEATH EATERS' DAUGHTER:
Written in response to the NaNoWriMo Challenge 2006, "DEATH EATERS DAUGHTER" had been a fanciful notion of mine when I wondered what sort of story could be written from the POV of a child of a Death Eater--without using a main character, such as Draco, Crabbe or Goyle. I went even further and thought, "What if this child was forced to live in America? How drastically would his/her life change--and how would they cope?".
This is 16-year-old Euphenia Mortimus' story. It involves a betrayal, murder, mystery, magic, friendship and perhaps some vengance. All for the sake of a forgotten Horcrux belonging to You-Know-Who.
I have TWO solid chapters written for this story, but have put it on the back-burner for a bit. I MAY CHANGE THE NAME OF THIS STORY BEFORE I POST ANY OF IT!!
--I have sketched a plot for a short story from Crookshank's POV.
--The OC from Toxic, Anya Elizabeth Borgin, can be found HERE
--Anya and Neville have exchanged letters in another piece I've written, but I doubt anyone will ever see that.
--A Fair to Remember was conceived in October and for 10 months languished with just a skeleton of one chapter.
--It took me 14 days to write A Fair to Remember.
--I research all the facts in my stories to the best of my ability, using the books, MN ENCYCLOPEDIA or the HP LEXICON.
Thanks for looking at my profile and I hope you enjoy the stories as much as I have fun writing them!

Summary: Harry has just witnessed the death of Professor Dumbledore, and chases after the murderous Snape before he can escape the grounds. But the former potions master easily captures Harry, and takes him back to Spinner’s End along with Draco Malfoy. What happens to Harry at Spinner’s End?

Post-war. Based somewhat on the story of the Phantom of the Opera. Also contains R/Hr, so don't read if you can't stomach that ship.

Will she manage hold up when she finds herself struggling to withhold her sharp tongue, returning hatred, and...something else?
