Hi! My name is Laurel. I studied abroad for a year, and now I'm a college student, armed with a computer and 7 Harry Potter books.
(Majoring in some combination of English lit, international relations and biology, and minoring in public health!)
I'm known as firefly114 on fictionpress, mischief1managed on fanfiction.net, and Mischief Managed on the mugglenet forums. Sorry for the confusing amount of names.
I write original fiction--my latest project is a steampunk thriller about a stowaway orphan on a big renegade airship. I'm currently working on a full length Harry Potter prequel series! Please follow my blog for more info, and always feel free to email me, message me, or comment on my blog to see where I'm at. Don't be afraid to contact me, I love to talk and I promise I won't think you're a creep!
Some facts about me:
I live on a farm.
I have two brothers, a sister, a greyhound, and a husky.
I met Rupert Grint.
I have a knack for getting impaled by rather vicious metal objects.
As such, I interned in an OR for a while.
I was also an EMT one summer.
I was once on a popular children's TV show.
My greatest ambition is to publish a novel, even though nobody in real life knows that.
I've recently started writing song lyrics.
I have a love affair with indie music.
I'm an erratic writer, especially when things get busy at university. It usually just takes one email asking "when's the next chapter coming out?" to get me going again, though. Will you be that person??
“You and I, we'll be young forever!” *
After a long, interesting, sweltering summer the Marauders are back for their sixth year, and they feel as though their teenage lives have only just begun.
James has been pursuing Lily for years, and he sure as hell isn't going to give up now. Sirius might actually be falling in love (though of course that can't be possible, can it?), and Remus is struggling with problems in his own family. Meanwhile, Peter has to decide how much worth he can put on friends who he will never live up to. And then there's Lily Evans, a girl who's starting to fall for the very man she swore not to. Diana McKinnon, her best friend, keeps finding herself staring at a certain grey-eyed Gryffindor, even though every piece of logic she has tells her that he's trouble.
But even though there's the looming danger of NEWTs, pranks, oily Slytherins, and physical education, a much bigger problem has presented itself. The Marauders' sixteen-year-old world isn't the safe place it used to be. There are rumors of danger and dark magic throughout the school, and of a powerful dark wizard named Voldemort. The Gryffindor sixth years have to decide where their true allegiances lie and how much they are willing to sacrifice for a war that seems impossible to win.

Note 3/26: Ok guys so I know that I haven't updated in forever, but I promise I'll finish the story! I'm struggling with some stuff, but hang in there, I haven't forgotten.
Lots and lots and lots of love, Olivia
