Hello. I probably won't be posting any stories for a while, because I'm hard at work writing them.
I won't post them until they are completed because I've learned through experience that I cannot function with my writing process visible for all to see.
I haven't been on this site in a while, and it's...telling...how age and life in general can alter your perspectives. I find many of my old reviews and what-not kind of weird and pretentious now, so if you're reading something I wrote and finding yourself shaking your head at how stupid it is, know that I probably am too.
I'm sorry if I annoyed and/or offended anyone.
Just want to say that this site is amazing. The writers here taught me what fanfic could be and never to lower my standards.
Summary: The war is years over now, and Harry Potter has become Head of the Auror Office at the reformed Ministry of Magic. He’s married to Ginny, love of his life, and they’re expecting a baby within the next few months. The war changed everything about Harry’s life, some things for the better. But he still remembers what happened in his place of employment before the war, before he was of age even; there was an event that neither he nor one close friend can put out of their heads for very long.
Luna Lovegood and Harry Potter cannot forget the whisperings just beyond the veil in the Department of Mysteries. So when Luna turns up out of the blue (and dressed in a memorable shade of blue) to ask for a tour—for the Quibbler of course—Harry is able to use his not-insignificant influence to pull a few strings and set in motion a spontaneous adventure that answers the questions they have always been haunted with, about death, life, memories, forgiveness, and everything in between.
Warnings: spoilers (for pretty much all the books)
Disclaimer: I bought the rights to Harry Potter, so I own this. And if you believe that…. Well, yeah. Obviously I just lied, I own none of this except for the plot.
P.S. : This story is meant to be maybe four or five chapters, possibility of an epilogue. Nothing colossal! :) 6/16/10: Just realized.... You should know that this is NOT a Harry/Luna romance. Sorry to disappoint if that's what you were looking for, and happy to help if it's not.
Excerpt from Chapter 3:
The colors of the new setting mainly consisted of greens and browns, with a translucent gold here and there. The random colors formed into leaves and bark, shafts of sunlight swung down like ropes between them. Harry and Luna found themselves in a forest, bodiless and looking down from high branches through leaves that were changing color. Again the deep voice resonated in their heads, saying with the clarity of a dark bell sound, “James”.
Narcissa has called him an interfering grandfather. Lucius is not sure he deserves that.
When he realises the deadly plan set before him by Dumbledore, Harry's heart goes through an incredible journey to find calm in the eye of the storm.
