Hi! My name is Manuel, or Alex, though I prefer the latter. I am a 21 year old university student and I have recently been inspired to study creative writing. I am kind of a late comer into the full-blown HP fandom, I've recently read all the books and started reading fan fiction and since then I've basically been obsessed, for lack of a better term. I been working on some stories, so hopefully I'll have some work up on here soon. My OTP is Harry/Hermione, though I do like the idea of Ron/Luna. Some of my other interests include: drawing, comic books, listening to music, and playing and watching basketball among other things.

When a Dementor approaches, one feels cold in places that the nerves of the skin can only dream of approaching.
Those places, for Harry, were dark, indeed.

If you only knew
I'm hanging by a thread,
The web I spin for you.
If you only knew
I'd sacrifice my beating
Heart before I'd lose you.
If I drown tonight, bring me
Back to life.
Breathe your breath in me;
The only thing that I still believe
In is you.
If you only knew...

Summary: There is a memory; a lake and a picnic blanket and a bottle of wine. There is a boat drifting off into the distance.
This is a companion piece to The Colour of Distance.
I strongly advise you to read that first.

During the trip to Godric's Hollow, Hermione, through the course of events, comes to realize that her friendship with Harry had become so much more to her - but not to him. This pain, this disconcerting feeling, however, had nothing to do with Horcruxes.

Guys, I'm back!
The innocence I’ve lost
The blood it's cost
Leaves unhealed scars within.
But I will not abate,
I will employ the hate
That has been planted deep inside.
I will not falter
Valor will not tire,
And I will survive
This trial by fire.
Many things are different now. Potions class is the least of the trio's worries. Battling dragons would be a welcome alternative to what it is they're attempting to battle now. The Order of the Phoenix is hallow without its leading member. And when someone close to Harry is stolen, Dumbledore's rhetoric of love, hope, and faith is challenged. Harry's strength and resolve are pushed to their limits. Loyalties are tested and new leaders emerge while Harry and Hermione struggle to balance new emotions and uncharted territory. Yet while this time after sixth year proves to be drastically
unlike anything Harry's ever experienced, some truths remain, and some affections stand solid.
A novel-type story that explores the engimas of Snape, Horcruxes, war, and above all
, the puzzle of love. HBP compliant. HHr.

This story is a sequel to an earlier story of mine called: Harry Potter and the Needed One. You will need to read that one first for this one to make sense. Harry learns that Hermione loves him and admits that he loves her. Unfortunately Harry has a lot of powerful enemies and an awful job that he must do. Harry must become a killer or a victim and he doesn't want a girlfriend. Hermione learns a horrible truth about the Fifth Horcrux. She must help Harry in his quest to destroy Voldemort and at the same time keep Harry alive.

Second chapter is up. An Excerpt:
“Ron, she has every reason to ask,” Ginny muttered half aloud so that only Harry and Ron could hear her. “Hermione has been in the hospital wing for weeks. I can’t remember a student who was ever there so long. Madam Pomfrey said there's no potion or spell that can help her; that’s why it's taking such a long time for her to recover.”
