Summary: My take on the first of those 'nineteen years' between the 36th chapter of DH and the epilogue.
Warnings: contains an unusually-shaped ring, a nosy neighbour, a rude shop assistant, shaving mishaps, thoughtful gestures, threatening goblins, and, unexplained appearances of Romantic!Ron and Romantic!Harry. You have been warned.
Rating is for *mild* innuendo and *mostly* innocent interactions but I wouldn't let my 9 year old read it.
Summary: Late one night, Hermione notices something outside that gets her thinking . . . what will happen now? A sort of parody of a Dramione romance. Thanks to my fantabulous beta Natalie/hestiajones (the beta who won the QSQ award!) You did a great job, even though I'm such a bad writer. This is a Christmas present for August for the 2010 Gryffindor Christmas Swap! Hope you like it August! My writing is bad, but hey, it's the thought that counts! You deserve better than this fail of a story . . .
Summary: It is Christmas Eve 1998, and the Magical World is shakily celebrating the first Christmas since Voldemort’s defeat.
For one, though, there is no reason to celebrate. Draco Malfoy sits alone in his room refusing to join his parents as they try to regain their social standing.
He does not want to see another Christmas, but he reckons without a redoubtable figure from his past.
My name is Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff, and this story has been written for prompt four of the Great Hall Christmas Challenge over at the MNFF Beta Boards.
Thank you to Natalie for a quick beta job on this – anything to get her away from Rabelais, I guess.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. Her lawyers agree, so please don’t confuse us.
Summary: No chestnuts roasting on an open fire; no mistletoe hanging from a doorway, inviting a warm Christmas kiss. Instead, Draco and Ginny’s Christmas Eve is spent sitting on a dirty floor tied to one another - and not in the fun kinky way.
Summary: Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy. Sparks fly. Dreadfully romantic, wouldn’t you agree? Well, that depends on your definition of ‘sparks’ - or the boy and girl involved. No, I’m afraid this isn’t one of your typical clichéd romances; it’s the other one. So take a seat and get comfortable. You’re in for quite a ride.
Summary: He had thought it best to ignore her and head back to his mother, but there was something about the way she moved, the way the sunlight hit her hair, framing her head like a golden-red halo. And then there were those freckles...

******Higher rating just to be safe.
Summary: Giving high school essays a Marauder twist, this fiction is centered around the idea that some seniors in high school are require to write a letter to incoming freshman before they graduate. At Hogwarts, Seventh Years are given an assignment to write such a letter for the new First Years. Sirius decides to actually take an assignment, well seriously...sort of. He decides to look back on his entire Hogwarts years and write down his list of things not to do at Hogwarts.
Hermione knew this thing she had with Malfoy was purely physical. She knew she shouldn't have fallen in love with him. And she knew that when he said he loved her too, a dozen misfortunes would befall them. Yet they both did admit it and just when she thought this temporary relationship might just last, she was left all alone and he?...Well he became one of Them.
