Well hello... I'm Kylie, aka, DarkSunflower. :) To those of you wondering about my penname, there's a reason for it; it's a bit of an oxymoron that describes my personality. I can be dark, "mysterious", anti-social, quiet, and pessimistic, but I'm also very outgoing, social, bubbly, optimistic, and... well, I think you understand the point. So, DarkSunflower; that's me! :)
Anyway, I'm 17 years old, American with all-European roots, and obviously, I'm an intense Harry Potter fan (although I just jumped on the bandwagon in June of 2010). I'm a proud Hufflepuff (as any of my friends would tell you), and I embrace that with all of my heart!
I'm an immensely huge Dramione fanatic. Honestly, it's not even funny... Kind of pathetic, really. But, although I'd never admit it to my friends, I'm basically a sucker for almost any romance story. But not the overly-mushy-gushy ones. But boy, how embarrassing... Hahah!
My first and only completed fic as of yet, The End of Her World, is currently up (if you haven't read it, please do!), but I currently have two other stories in the works. At the moment I'm trying to focus on my first Dramione fic, Painted Fire. Chapter two is currently up and chapter three is now in the works, though taking longer than expected. Hopefully soon my new one-shot Eclectic Harmony about the four founders of Hogwarts will be finished, so keep watch. :)
Well, that's about all I've got to say! Until next time, my fellow fan-fic readers!
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: Callie and Lia, a Gryffindor and a Slytherin. A lady and a tomboy. Two opposite souls. Two sisters. Separated at birth by circumstances they are determined to discover... and undo. Yes, after being reunited, the siblings plan to reunite their parents as well. Let’s see them accomplish House Unity, too!

~Inspired by a worldwide beloved film.
Summary: Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy attend the Wizarding University of Paris the year after they graduate from Hogwarts. This is a sequel to the Dragon Does the Tickling, where Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy complete their seventh year at Hogwarts after the war.
Summary: He prayed that she would say something - anything to appease Bellatrix. But she did not - that infuriating, idiotic, beautiful, courageous, stubborn, uncontrollable bint. He had never loved her more.
One of the hardest things in this world is to watch someone you love experience unimaginable pain and be powerless to stop it. But if you did have some power - any at all - to take that pain away, would you use it, even at the risk of your own life? Would you defy your allies - your family - to help someone who is supposed to be an enemy? Or would you do nothing - like the coward everyone assumes you are?
Draco Malfoy was tired of being a coward.
As a part of his punishment for his part in the war, Draco was sentenced to a year living as a Muggle in the Muggle world. Harry ropes Hermione into serving as Draco's liaison with the Ministry and guide to the Muggle world. Can she open his eyes to the joys of Muggle living or will she Avada him first? Set post-DH, ignores epilogue.
Scorpius had never looked forward to anything the way he looked forward to leaving Hogwarts with Rose. He planned a holiday with no friends, no family, and nothing to do but be together—until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
Summary: Imprisoned, alone, about to lose his life. Some would say that there love was never meant to be. But Draco would disagree.
The companion piece to "The Longest Walk of Her Life."
Summary: After the war, Hermione returns to Hogwarts to complete her seventh year of studies as Head Girl, only to find Draco Malfoy has been appointed Head Boy. Her life is further complicated by the fact that Headmistress McGonagall is strongly encouraging Malfoy and her to attend one of the three wizarding universities in Europe after they graduate from Hogwarts. The story starts HG/RW, but the focus is on the development of HG/DM.
Summary: Sequel to "An Aversion to Change."
It's Voldemort's world now: a world of corruption, betrayal, greed, and violence. A world of evil thoughts and evil deeds, where no one can be trusted, especially those closest to you.
But through it all, there must be strength. There must exist those who will stand up to totalitarian rule, who will say no when others submit, who must survive despite their condition. There must exist the resilient.
Eventual Draco/Hermione with plenty of plot. Very dark, so read at your own risk!
Summary: "There are many stories between the lines." - Jo Rowling, about the Black Family Tree.Cedrella's goal all her life has been to be the perfect Black.

Summary: Writer’s block is to stress as Dragon Pox is to sickness. And banter is to romance as Draco is to Ginny. Or something like that. I dunno. Put down something witty and then tell everyone I wrote it.
Summary: He with the power to defeat the Dark Lord does not. Harry Potter is dead. Fifty years later, both Muggle and magical worlds belong to darkness. All serve Lord Voldemort.

Summary: The long awaited sequel to "It's Witchraft" (Draco/Hermione). Medea Malfoy had always looked up to her parents Draco and Hermione as the ideal wizard and witch...so imagine her surprise when some of her class mates seemed to hate her just because she was a Malfoy. What could be wrong with being a Malfoy? Patrick Potter had been told about The Malfoys his entire life, but he failed to understand how Medea, a fellow Gryffindor who had an unfailing love of justice, could possibly be bad.
Summary: Today is my wedding day. It should have been the happiest day of my life. It would have been, if only I was getting married to the right man. A Dramione story. Sequel now up "One Second Can Be A Lifetime"
Summary: Life doesn’t always go according to plan, so sometimes you need contingencies. But what if your backup to your backup plan fails? What can you do? Mix in hexes, rumours, a reverse-Oedipus complex and something about a pig, and set it all in the year 1975 and you are bound to have issues - serious, psychologically-scarring issues. Oh, and did I mention Draco and Ginny were in the middle of all this? Yeah. Fun times.
Summary: I suspect Potter always imagined himself dying honourably in battle or saving some poor sod’s soul. He didn’t. And for that I was smugly appreciative.
Summary: Chapter Ninety Six is posted!
This is the story of four boys. This is the story of a boy from a family he wants to escape from. This is the story of a boy who is from a family he loves deeply, but lacks the gift of a best friend. This is the story of a boy who has been living with a curse his entire life, fighting to overcome it. This is the story of a boy who wishes to show people what he can do. This is the story of how these four boys came to know each other, of how they became friends. This is the story of their unbreakable bond, of a bond that could survive any test, any trial. This is a story that will ultimately end in tragedy.

It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.
