Like everyone else here I love Harry Potter. But how many of you stop yourselves from calling you husband that? ;)
My favorite character is Ginny, but as you see from my penname I can identify with Hermione the most. Probably because I am normally too smart for my own good and I have untamable hair. Oh and growing up it seemed like I was always getting into trouble because of my friends.
I love Harry and Ginny together. JKR has been laying the ground work for it since the book 1 when Ginny practically fell over herself to try to see Harry. And who didn't want Harry and Ginny to wind up together after everything that happened in the COS? Not to mention that she is the only one to successfully point out him being an ass. I guess I am just a sucker for childhood sweethearts.
I have lots of ideas floating around in my head. But until I have something coherent to bring them all together, I will continue to read and review yours.
Since you are reading this (which I have idea why I haven't posted anything yet) you obviously want to know about me, So I will tell you something. My three favorite stories are:
1. Broken by Huskers, It has a great story line as well as good writing. While technically AU, it really isn’t outside the realm of cannon. Actually it doesn’t really touch cannon, it starts about 5 years from now.
2. Curse of the Reapers by Deanine, It is a really funky AU. Read at least chapters 1&2 before you decide on it.
3. Harry Potter and the Severed Souls by Magical Maeve, Also AU, it is a more traditional FF however I love anything that has a complex Snape.
Oh and besides being excellent stories these are listed because they regularly update. (Well Broken is actually finished now but you know what I mean)
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
Summary: When Ginny Weasley becomes Draco Malfoy's wife, he suspects neither her true identity nor her dangerous motives. But when all Hell breaks lose and their relationship takes unexpected turns, there is more at stake than preserving their marriage--namely, preserving their lives.
Summary: A different sort of alternate universe... It is a world under the thumb of an ancient emperor. Muggle society has been oppressed beyond recognition. Wizards rule over all, their only laws defined by power. This is the story of a rebellion, a family, a traitor, and the long road that leads home at last.
Summary: Summary : The sequel to Daughter of Light. Maeve has a very bad end to her honeymoon as things come to light about Severus that astound her. Why is her husband so keen to keep Draco Malfoy alive at all costs and can she really get over her loathing of Narcissa Malfoy to work together to save both Severus and Draco from the fate that Voldemort would like to inflict on them? Why is Harry so furtive and will Neville save the day when Maeve’s necklace is returned to her by her father. Oh, and our favourite bad-boy Auror is back!
There has been rather a long break in the writing of the story due to work commitments, but I'm back on the case and hoping to get it finished - if there's anyone left still reading!! :-)
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. But even in the grimmest of times, idealists are born. Without a prophesy to direct them, a rebellion will rise. Follow Lottie Rowe as she finds her way into the center of the rebellion and the heart of the war.

Summary: Severus Snape, dangerously embroiled in his duties as Dumbledore's spy, encounters yet further obstacles when he begins to harbor feelings for a sixth year Gryffindor student. Succumbing to his desires sets in motion a chain of events that could very well destroy all that he and the opposition of Lord Voldemort have striven so hard to accomplish. Please keep in mind that this is written from the angle that Snape is no longer a follower of Voldemort, and that its events coincide with books 4, 5, and 6, with a slight continuation beyond HBP. (Chapters 1-15 need some fixing to work with Book 7.)
Summary: London: Four murders have taken place under bizarre circumstances, for what seems to be an equally bizarre reason.
Harry, a happily wedded man with a wonderful wife and a cute daughter, is an Auror at the Ministry of Magic and is now given a new case to solve with Ron and four other Aurors. Incidentally, the four Aurors include Ginny, Harryâ€™s â€˜schoolboy crushâ€™; and it turns out to be much more than a crush when Harry sees her again. Whatâ€™s more is that Harry is working upon a case that seems to connect to him directly. And once again, it opens up old fears: fears of losing loved ones.
Ron, on the other hand, seems to be tired of Hermione. Tempers are running high and fights are breaking out more often than usual. Are they really falling apart? Or can they sort this out before it is too late?
Then there is the case itself. Who is trustworthy, and who is not? Who is deadly enough to murder four people in cold blood?
Indulge into the gut-wrenching action, combined with warm romance and tingling suspense; while I tell you a story of love, ambition and obsessionâ€¦ a story of what those killer instincts can do. EDIT: MAJOR revamping going on, with regard to plot, characterisation, and general style of writing. I would urge you not to read this until I've removed this notice because I wasn't very good six years ago, and this is as bad as I was. *Places traffic cones*
Summary: Lily Evans remained shadowed and distant from the world she loved so dearly. Control was Michael's weakness; temptation hers. Yet, when James Potter enters her life, without so much as a warning or brief hesitation, Lily finds truth. For James Potter refused to give up on her.
Summary: Bodmin Moor is a cold and unforgiving place. When Halcyon Rosmerta is left stranded by her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend she finds herself having to depend upon the kindness of a rather strange man with a definate reluctance to go outside. But what lurks in his cellar?
Summary: Fred and George are interested in Ginny's love life. Will they hurt or help her efforts. Warning for later chapter.
Summary: Straight after the events of HBP. As Snape and Malfoy make for the exit, the latter has second thoughts. He remembers Dumbledore's words in his desire to escape the wrath of the Dark Lord. Darkness, confusion and a lot of rain.
"However," the terrible voice resumed in a tone constructed solely of icy menace. "You are young. Too young to understand. No matter how far you go, no matter who you stay with or where you hide - if you run from me I will find you, and when I do you will pay."
Final chapter up! COMPLETE
Summary: Summary: What happened on that fateful night at Godric's Hollow and the (still!) unknown events that followed in the next twenty four hours, before Harry's arrival on Privet Drive? What motivated the actions and decisions that were made in the years leading up to the defeat of Voldemort? The truth is neither black or white - only complicated shades of grey. Behind the stories of Lily Evans, Severus Snape and Peter Pettigrew we learn that we are all vulnerable to evil.
(written between HBP and DH - story is complete)
Summary: With the death of Albus Dumbledore came the passing of the most powerful symbol against the Dark Lord Voldemort. Now the Death Eaters are more active than ever, the Wizarding World is in mourning, the Order of the Phoenix has to regroup, and Harry Potter has to follow the path set before him. But Harry will get more help than he bargained for, will have more responsibilities than expected, and will find a spell that nobody knows how to work.
Giant spiders, malevolent bats, wizard scouts...werewolves. Tonks finds life in Hogsmeade far from simple, while Remus discovers having a partner in touch with her inner wolf complicates his mission and his heart.
My take on how events may pan out in book seven. Spoilers from all previous HP books.
The events of the previous year have brought home to Harry the realization of what has to be done, and the knowledge that it must be done alone. Now as he sets off on his final quest, making new acquaintances along the way, he must bring all his knowledge and skill to bear in his effort to destroy Lord Voldemort. But will it be enough, or is there something that he has missed which might prove to be his undoing?
Summary: This follows Ron and Hermione 10 years after school.
When Hermione doesn't turn up for the group's ten year reunion at Hogwarts, Ron becomes suspicious about why Hermione is too busy to be there. But what he discovers is beyond what he ever imagined.
After seeing each other again nine years later, can Ron and Hermione find the love they shared once again?
NOTE: THIS STORY IS NOT ENTIRELY COMPLETED. IT IS TEMPORARILY STOPPED, BUT WILL BE RETURNED TO IN THE FUTURE.
