Truth? or Lies?... Friends? or Enemies?... Family? or Blood?... Love? or Hate?... Real? or Fantasy?
I am just your average girl trying to solve life's unanswerable questions. I hide behind a mask, too scared to show my true self, my hate, my madness, my desires. I find the only way to break free is in my writing. Using a fake name, can you see me? For I am in every story, in every chapter. Is it just a story or is it my destiny?
In 1988, after tea leaves predict romance, Severus Snape makes a mocking wish on a falling star, speaking the words aloud to make sure they never come true.
Another star falls.
*Nominated for a 2015 QSQ award for Best Non-Canon Romance*
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
Summary: It's Harry Potter's first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. But his little sister, Kata Potter, still has a year to go. She's still in Little Whinging. And nothing is the same. Her brother is gone, her friends have changed, and she's been told to trust no one. All Kata has left is an assignment from her teacher: find and catalog the twenty things that make her world go 'round. Maybe Kata's too young for the magic, but she's going to have her own adventures... adventures that will take her from Little Whinging to London, a police station, the back of a train, a stage with a bright light... and maybe even to Hogwarts itself.
Twenty Things is a story about finding yourself, your friends, your secrets, and your past, and hacking it all into some sort of future.
