Bio:
Hello! *waves* I'm a poor uni student finding ways to amuse herself when I should be writing up my Physics notes (ugh!). I am also the leader of two groups over on the Beta Boards.

Poetry Anyone? I am the resident Poet Laureate over on the Beta Boards as leader of this fun little group. We have monthly challenges all with a Harry Potter twist. You can also find solid and comprehensive critique for any poems and help for all your archive-based concerns.

Susan Bones Book Club. I am the co-leader of this group along with hestiajones. Each month the SBBC chooses two to three fics from the archives to discuss. We also have monthly drabble activities and an incredibly lively chat thread. We accept new members at all times so if your interested go and take a look. If you have any questions or concerns then don't hesitate to PM me or hestiajones.

Staring Back by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: Charlie Weasley and Penelope Clearwater were a mismatch made under Romanian skies one starlit night. They'd made no promises, except one: to see if they could make it work.

But what neither of them had counted on were ghosts from the past threatening their future before it had started.

This follow up to Mirrors is for Julia (the opaleye) because not only did she suggest the original pairing, but it is her birthday (well it was, I'm a tad late)

I'm not JK Rowling. She has more money, grace and style.

Tea Behind Bars by WeasleyMom
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary: Past Featured StoryShaking free of one's chains is never easy. Least of all, for Draco Malfoy.

Disclaimer: I am not J.K. Rowling. (Duh.)

Dedication: I wrote this for Carole/Equinox Chick, because I've wanted to write her a birthday fic for three years and failed, because her encouragement has meant more to me than she could possibly know, and because she told me to write more Draco. (What?) She's also Mistress of The Brawl, from whence this fic came.

A Palisade of Persuasion by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 69]

Summary: It was true that Daphne and Lee had met at a most inappropriate time, but they had found love, lust and the glimmerings of a life together.

But the power of persuasion should never be underestimated. When they meet again, years later, his indifference cuts to her core. Can the past ever truly be recaptured?

This story is a present for Julia (the opaleye) because she is amazingly talented and has inspired me in so many ways. It is also her brthday.

Summary:

Six wizards, three witches and a mysterious poet.

Five days.

This summer, Greengrass Estate is about to witness some Austen-sized chaos.




Disclaimer: This story is inspired by William Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing, but you don’t need to be familiar with the play -- everyone’s invited! This is also my 100th story on the archives, my biggest fanfic till date, and it might just end up being my own darling swansong. I hope that if you click on it, you’ll enjoy it.

The Dying of the Light by minnabird
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 2]

Summary: Florean is not the name I was born with: my parents called me Alric.

At the close of his life, the man known as Florean Fortescue remembers. There is much to remember from a life spanning ten centuries, but his mind drifts back to the very beginning of that life, and to his time with Merlin - a relationship that changed him irrevocably.

Then chance (or perhaps destiny) decided to play, and Harry was thrust into the company of the one person he had no intention of healing anything with.

To Dwell On Dreams by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: 'Sometimes I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror or a window, and I do not recognise the face staring back. Even the eyes, which never truly change, seem dulled in comparison to what they once were.

It is not age that dulled them but you, and him, and her, and the myriad of dreams that came to nothing.'


Albus Dumbledore dwells on his life, and love, and the Hogwarts' students he shaped.

This story is for Natalie (hestiajones) because it is her birthday and she is a fantastic friend. Have a good one, my love.

Disclaimer: I'm not JK Rowling. I think that's obvious.

Thank you very much, Kara (Karaley Dargen) for beta'ing this story and helping me rethink bits. :)

Rest In The Bed by welshdevondragon
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary: Past Featured Story

"This is the last night I will spend in our flat. I have spent sixty-nine nights here without you, and I can only manage one more."

....

"I can't remember falling out of love with you. I've just--I've just fallen in love with someone else, so maybe what we had wasn't love in the first place."



Lily is leaving the flat she and Scorpius shared for five years, in the hope that she can move on. Some things, however, are hard to forget.

This story is for Soraya, since it is partially her fault, and also because she deserves many stories of higher quality than this.

Title from the Laura Marling song of the same name, which is also the song played during this story.

Strong Enough to Break by Acacia Carter
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 12]

Summary: Past Featured StoryIt had been three years since his wife's death, but the first woman to make him feel something is the last woman he'd have thought. The fact that he's closer in age to her father than to her does not help matters.

Otherwise known as All Soraya's Fault.

Important note: I used the Student/Teacher warning as a precaution; the relationship in this story is between a teacher and his former student, for whom he had no feelings while she was under his tutelage. Just to be clear.

Another important note: I'm not JKR. She has a much nicer house.
