Name: Sheila Anne Rhodes
Height: 5ft 3in
Last seen at Fistral Beach wearing an orange bikini. If found, please contact us through any of the numbers listed below.
Someone goes missing at a beach in Newquay and apart from the grieving family members, nobody is really worried. After all, people keep disappearing like that throughout the year, right? Maybe Sheila's father or husband has unknowingly made an enemy somewhere. Newquay is still safe anyway.
That is what Chris Stevens and his steady girlfriend, Cheryl Willis, think as they head off to Cheryl's beach house for a vacation with a few other friends. Everybody is really looking forward for the trip-- it seems to be a breath of fresh air in each of their busy lives.
But what happens when the number of disappearances begins to increase with no trace of any of the victims?
All-OC sequel to 'Killer Instincts', but can be read as a stand-alone. Thank you to my beta Alex/welshdevondragon for polishing this story! :)

Barty Crouch Jr. and Regulus Black; two boys with different expectations thrust upon them.
This is the story of how their paths cross, merge and then divide, leading towards two different endings; one tragic, one heroic.
"The Death Eaters, I want to join." I stared at him. His blue eyes were steady, his mouth set. He looked resolute. He had thought this over.
And then I got it. I finally got Sirius.
Nominated for Best Dark/Angsty Story in the 2011 Quicksilver Quills and for Best Marauder Era in 2012. Thank you so much!

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough...

Summary: Christmas 1976. Lily Evans is standing in the shadow of a war that for the first time is affecting her Christmas spirit. A reprieve from the gloom comes in the form of a Muggle boy from her hometown, someone who the war cannot touch and is unaffected by the fear it causes. However, dark times lie ahead, and Lily begins to realise that there are some things she just cannot escape, however hard she tries.
This came joint first in the December Great Hall Challenge! Thank you to the judges!
Also nominated for Best Marauder Story in the QSQs! Thank you!

Cho Chang is contently married to the Muggle man of her dreams (or so she tells herself). The Wizarding World and all the pain it brought is far behind her -- at least, that is what she believes until she bumps into an old classmate.
Pansy Parkinson weaves her way through bars and men (in that order) and tries to forget which side she was on. She needs help, but she isn’t sure how.
Perhaps, it takes recognising sorrow to move on to bliss.
This story is for the GH Cotillion Challenge. Thank you, Jess and Viv, for setting such an ingenious challenge!

A photograph and a slew of memories were all that remained of Remus Lupin's schoolboy romance with Marlene McKinnon. But she was gone, and he gagged on all the things he never said.
This story is dedicated to the gorgeous and always-inspiring Equinox Chick/Carole/Croll of the Dungeon. May your minions never stray in their worship of you. It was inspired by a rather gorgeous song by The Cure, called Pictures of You.
This story has been nominated for a 2012 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Marauder Era.

Summary: The room is vast and furnished only by the massive, thickly red bed, the billowing white curtains and a tall mirror. Dusk flows in through the windows and paints the white walls in pink and orange. The only sound that can be heard is the strong breeze disturbing the trees outside.
The stage is set just as I like it.
This is hestiajones' final entry for the Inaugural GH Cotillion Challenge, but you never know. She might pop up again. However, she assures you that she is not J.K.Rowling.
My heartfelt thanks to my fellow elf, the opaleye/Julia/Wise One of the Pear and Unicorn Wand, whose crit helped me turn this fic into something more worthwhile :)

Molly (jnr) was a Weasley with a difference. Not sparkling, not brave, not reckless. She was diligent and loyal, and usually overlooked.

Many thanks to Natalie (hestiajones) and Kara (Karaley Dargen) for their help with beta'ing this story.
The line about 'porridge' is a tip someone told me photographers use.
Due to the infuriating prissy glitch infecting the archives, I have downgraded this story's rating to 3rd-5th. However, this is actually a PROFESSORS story, so please do not click if sexual situations are likely to offend.

Say you were in love with somebody for years, somebody who just left without telling you why. Say she turned up unexpectedly. What would you do?
This is a sequel to Cut
1) This is not J.K.Rowling.
2) I chose Turner's first name after a villain from Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl
series, but the character is not entirely
based on her.
3) One of Gimli's lines from Return of the King
will appear in the last chapter. No, it is not "There's plenty enough for the both of us. May the best dwarf win." Yes, it means I have finished writing the whole story. :)

A hero who will always get the girl.
But for James Sirius Potter, the girl he wants is unobtainable.
This is a present for Natalie (hestiajones) because not only is it her birthday, but she’s a fantabulous friend and an all round amazing person. (and I hope she doesn’t mind what I’ve done ... eeeep)
It’s possible that this pairing may squick you out. I appreciate people have different thoughts on this but advise you to keep an open mind until the end of the story.
Due to a VERY annoying glitch in the archives that won;t let readers access stories above 3rd-5th, I have TEMPORARILY lowered the rating. This story is STILL a PROFESSORS story. You click at your own risk.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but if I were, then I’d be living in a huge house in London, with a basement, for teh flist, and buying Alex Turner especially for Natalie.
