No Other Way: A new R/Hr story - chapter 3 is with beta, and so should be up soon!
"It hurts, doesn't it?"
"Pretending you've fallen out of love."
At the lead up to Ron’s wedding, questions start to be asked - by Ron, by Hermione - and by Ron’s bride-to-be. Over the years, the paths that were once so closely intertwined have separated, leading off in different directions. Meeting at the crossroads, looking back at the journey that has led them there, will Ron and Hermione choose to take a turn that may take them off-course forever, or simply continue straight ahead?
Little fact - this was originally written for the Great Hall Weddings challenge (about 6 months ago!), but I only just finished it - and I'm really pleased with the ending, so I hope you keep reading until then!
Who Believes In Love: One shot. My Bill/Fluer fic that I wrote for Jenna for Secret SPEW. I actually really like this fic, and think it's one of my best - it's about Bill and Fleur's relationship, and how she can't figure out whether she believes in love or not.
I would really recommend reading this out of all of my work.
There Are More Ways Than One To Kill A Man: One shot. My third Gauntlet piece - why does Fred become a Death Eater? There are more ways than one to kill a man, as Fred Weasley well knows, for as the war goes on he's sure he must have experienced nearly every one. But what on earth could have caused him to take such drastic measures as to join his sworn enemies? And how will his story end?
One of my Gauntlet fics that I really like by itself as well - another one I'd recommend over others.
Where Letters Lead: My new Ron/Hermione fic, complete.
With the coming of a new year, Hermione feels that it's time to sort her life out - and so she writes to Ron, whom she hasn't spoken for years when she moved away after a fight they had. But when he doesn't reply - along with not recieving any correspondance since Christmas from either Ginny or Mrs. Weasley - Hermione decides to take things into her own hands. But where will her letters lead?
A mystery/romance chaptered fic that I'm quite proud of - especially the last chapter!
Tragedies, Tears and Black Velvet Boxes: A Ron/Hermione one-shot. Fairly dark, post-war one-shot that I actually really like, as it's quite different from my usual writing.
It's shown from Molly Weasley's point of view as she reflects on the after-effects of the war, and on Ron's news.
Escaping Fate - Alongside Certain Death And Other Such Predicaments: Complete. My submission for the second Gauntlet - now it's Hermione's turn! Complete. When an outbreak of Dragon Pox breaks out, it seems that only Hermione may be able to save the lives of many - but what has all this got to do with with Ron?
When Is Too Late?: My Ron/Hermione WIP. Chapter 8 is now UP!
In this light-hearted chaptered fic (which I'm going to estimate at being about 12 chapters long) Ron has to make the decision about when really is too late for him and Hermione - but Hermione's long-term boyfriend, Terry Boot isn't making it easy.
Ron's Gauntlet: My submission for the first Gauntlet - one-shot. When a new maze appears in the Hogwarts grounds Ron is determined to win the glory he has been robbed of for so long.
Dear Dumby: Complete. This was my first fanfic, a humour story about what would happen if Dumbledore set up an advice column for Hogwarts (as they do seem to have a lot of problems - getting dates for Hogsmead weekends, completing homework on time, avoiding evil overlords who want to kill them and so on), and the effects his advice would have.
To be honest, I'm not too fond of this piece anymore - I feel that my other stories are much better written. However, a lot of people seem to enjoy it, and I don't mind the last few chapters too much, so read at your own peril!
Many thanks to Purplemage for all my lovely banners!
Summary: "Some mistakes are too much fun to make just once."
After Lily Evans, Head Girl of Hogwarts, starts a food-fight with James Potter, Head Boy of Hogwarts, they are both given detention for the rest of the year, and are assigned a 'detention journal', which the staff say will help to settle their 'overwhelming and disturbing differences'. We have come across Lily's journal; her take on why the whole affair ever started, her intriguing relationship with one ‘supreme git of the galaxy’, the extents to which she will go for revenge and where it will lead her...
"And if for some unknown reason you come across this, Potter, and the paragraph above does not manage to penetrate your unusually thick head and convince you of my stupendous dislike of you, I hope the following sentence helps: I HATE YOU!"
Pride and Pre-Juiced Plums: A Potter's Pentagon Love Story by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 266]
Summary: A companion piece to the Potter's Pentagon trilogy... it's better if you've read the Potter's Pentagon trilogy, but you don't necessarily have to.
It's five years after Emma Weasley and her chums graduated from Hogwarts. Ted and Ivy are married, Haley is working at Madame Puddifoot's while trying desperately to break into show business, Jordan's doing whatever it is he does, and Emma is an Auror trainee working as a guard at the Chudley Cannons' stadium. The Cannons have actually been doing much better lately, due to their new star Beater, Tyrone Thomas. Unfortunately, Tyrone is Emma's ex-boyfriend. OH, THE AWKWARDNESS.
Follow Emma through her awkward adventures told in her usual insane way, as she experiences angst, hilarity, obnoxiously strange people, misadventures involving a deceptively dashing cad, Haley's wedding, the birth of Ted and Ivy's baby, and her own eventual descent into LURRRVE.
Written for the marvellous Vindictus Viridian's Pride and Prejudice NEWTs class on the Fanfiction Beta Boards, based on Jane Austen's fantastic novel, "Pride and Prejudice.".
Nominated in the 2008 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Non-Canon Romance Story! And its lovely (haha) heroine, Emma Weasley, received two nominations for Best Female Original Character, while Haley Potter and Ivy Potter each received one! Thanks so much, guys!
Summary: The final installment in the Potter’s Pentagon Trilogy. Read “The Five” and “The Truth” first, myess? Okay!
WARNING! Contains Muggle adventures in Diagon Alley, unusual eyebrows, cheesy clichés galore, psycho Ted, the not-so-lost years of Merlin, a school-wide singalong, the old potato joke, Tyrone’s Princess Bride obsession, Emma’s stubborn denial of the existence of Tyrone’s mustache, a graphic death, a joke shop product as a major plot device, hobo Jordan, Jordan hugging, Jordan pulling pranks, time travel, the Love Shack, angst, and worst of all, Professor Zabini.
It’s the sixth year for Potter’s Pentagon and company, and our heroes learn that in the wizarding world, coming of age has a somewhat weightier significance. Students are busy with an Inter-House Unity Project, Jordan is having weird dreams, Pansy and Ophidias Malfoy have been released from Azkaban, Professor Zabini has a mysterious project of his own, and almost everyone is acting strangely. Meanwhile, at the Ministry of Magic, a man with a vendetta against Ron Weasley is trying his hardest to get him in the biggest trouble possible. Is the only way to save him to travel into the past?
New talents are discovered, new friendships form and old ones change, pasts are dredged up, and, of course, there’s lots of good old-fashioned snogging. And one of the five kills for the first time… while another becomes a casualty of war.

Nominated for 2008 Quicksilver Quills Best Post-Hogwarts Story.
Summary: This is book two in the "Potter's Pentagon" trilogy. Read "Potter's Pentagon: The Five" first, myesss? Cool.
WARNING: This story contains French people, an internal monologue about a blue orange, adolescent facial hair, good old-fashioned snogging, superstitious truck drivers, a portrait who calls everyone "Mavis," a zoo break-in, some very strange clothes, romantic conflict galore, and Ron Weasley's caffeine addiction. And worst of all, Professor Zabini!
Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard Tournament, and when one of the members of Potter's Pentagon is selected to represent the school, much excitement ensues. Simultaneously, elections are being held for Minister of Magic, and things are getting busy at the Ministry.
Not to mention the fact that Jordan's made a new Muggle friend without informing her of the itty-bitty fact that he's magical, Haley has found an enchanted diary of dubious origin, Ted's met a werewolf from Beauxbatons, and Emma... well, Emma's not having a good year.
And what exactly is Ivy up to, anyway?
Everyone has secrets. But in the end, the truth will have to come out.

Summary: Victoire has always won everything, maybe even something of Teddy's.
What is a story without a scandal?
Underneath every burn hole on the tapestry of the Black family tree, there is a story, and underneath every story, there is a scandal.
In 1924, the Blacks were the most powerful family of the Wizarding World. They were greedy, back-stabbing, malicious, and power-hungry. And Cedrella was no exception. She was her father's favourite daughter; the pride of the Blacks, and it has earned her a conceited nature like no other.
But during her seventh year at Hogwarts, her life begins to become a little more clear, her family a little more conniving. She is arranged to wed the infamous Abraxus Malfoy and has people watching her every move to make sure she follows through. It makes it even more difficult when Septimus Weasley, a blood traitor and fellow classmate, starts to convince her, that for once in her life, she could have what she wanted.
A scandal forms between the two; a forbidden love between Black and Weasley behind the walls of Hogwarts. If they are found out, their lives will be ruined. But even under the opposition, what a Black wants...
a Black gets.
Summary: Lily knew that James was nothing but trouble. He was rude, conceited, and indifferent to anyone that wasn't in his group of friends. She had known him to be that way for six long years.
But their seventh year comes, and Lily slowly begins to see that he is no longer the boy he was. Now Lily sees herself more clearly, and she isn't sure she likes what she sees.
This is the almost-forgotten story of Lily and James's romance, and what they went through to become the heroes that were Harry Potter's parents.
Summary: WARNING! This story contains a jingle-bell antler headband, a shower of potatoes, boy/girl mushiness, underwear karaoke, family trouble, an excessively adorable werewolf, death, the song "Werewolves of London," betrayal, and the word 'Jordan' five times in a row near the beginning of chapter seven.
Twenty-one years after Voldemort's defeat, five fourth-years are faced with a new threat. Will all of the five stay true to the light side? Will they all emerge whole in the end? Will Jordan Potter ever get a life? You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll gasp, you'll sigh! Part one in a trilogy!
Well, after much deliberation and consideration, I've decided to submit my future-gen trilogy! This particular installment is three years old, so it's definitely different from my current writing style, but I'm quite fond of the characters.
DH is disregarded. It's a total coincidence that one of the main characters is named Ted Lupin.
Starring Quicksilver Quills 2008 Best Male Original Character runner-up Jordan Potter, Best Female Original Character nominees Ivy Potter, Haley Potter, and Emma Weasley, and Best Male Original Character nominee Ted Lupin!
Five times nominated (once for each member of Potter's Pentagon!) for the Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards, and nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Awards...
Summary: Hermione takes a drastic decision to leave the wizarding world behind in favour of her dream of becoming a dancer. Her departure has a drastic effect on Ron's life, and when they are unexpectedly thrown together years later, there's sure to be fireworks once more. Based on the UK TV show 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Summary: Harry places his thoughts into Dumbledore’s Pensieve in hope to save Ron and Hermione’s relationship. Ron and Hermione delve into the Pensieve and revive essential moments of their Hogwarts experience starting with the day they met. This is a riveting tale, casting Ron and Hermione to the past as they unwind time and memories. As they unfold time will their hearts dare to let each other in? Or is the past too hard to bear?
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.
Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, are proud to present a Symphony for Quartet.
Summary: It is easy to go through life completely unsure of every step you take. Unsure of which direction to turn, of whether you are moving too quickly, too slowly. Unsure as to whether you want to be walking it at all. But the hardest thing is to make your choice, once and for all.
Hermione Granger knows this only too well. She chose to turn away from that path. She turned away from those she loved. Confronted with the consequences of this years later, Hermione knows that she never should have walked away. Now the decision to put things right lies with her and her alone. As she learns to overcome old fears and doubts, will she finally look to the light, and to the world she left behind so long ago?
The choice to feel the sun on your face lies only with you.
A two-shot written by Rachel [lily_evans34] and Kate [ms weasley].
Summary: Ronald Weasley struggles with his teaspoon's worth of emotions during Hermione's stay at the Burrow summer after fifth year. With the Twins succumbing the household to spontaneous product trials, and a new Minister of Magic, one would think that Hermione's Bulgarian pen pal would be the least of Ron's problems.
And that would be what one would get for thinking.
Surprises abound (the Good and the Bad) assure the Weasleys and their house guest this will be a summer all but one of them will never forget.
Final chapter is in queue. Wow, that took forever, didn't it?
Summary: Sequel to the parody 'Tom Riddle and the Half Blood Prince', which I am proud to state won the 2006 Quicksilver Quill award for best humor. Prior reading is advised, but not absolutely necessary.
Summary: Tonks thought she was going to have a nice, normal summer...for once...but she doesn't count on the Marauders showing up...with plans to spend the entire holidays. Can she spend the next two months avoiding them...or will fate, natural curiosity and the irrepressible Marauders get the better of her?
Edited by mod: Please do not put author's notes in your summary.
Summary: Hermione had never listened to the darkness. But now, it's all she can hear.
Written for Project SPEW 007. My prompt was "seven".
Summary: It’s Harry’s last year at Hogwarts and as he has already expected – with experience in having troublesome adventures before – this year is going to be a year full of surprises. Voldemort has a plan! Chocolate frogs, ambiguous but semantic evil schemes, ominous word games, a succinct letter, incongruous French lecture, inexcusable slovenliness, birds and bees with eloquence, intolerable impatience and something goes terribly wrong… Now complete
Excerpt: Harry woke up with a start. He couldn't remember what he had dreamt about, but he knew it hadn't been a good dream - sweat made his hair cling to his forehead and his pyjamas clung to his body like a homeless person would cling on to a lamp post in a hurricane.
Summary: Mischief happens; for sixth-year Gryffindor, Andran Audierus, it's somewhat expected. Clumsiness also happens, and for New student Marti Owlsten, it's more of a way of life. Put these two together, and they may end up in over their heads in trouble... and toothpaste. Insults, ransom notes, magical dares, pranks... will they make it to their seventh year in one piece?
**This is a post-HP7 fic, by about ten to fifteen years... but that doesn't mean their won't be familiar faces. Lots of humor, butn also a good plot line, too**
Summary: Lily thought she was in for a boring summer... but James Potter had other ideas. Love Letters, with a rather bizarre twist.
Summary: Professor Granger deals with a pair of students who have inherited a knack for trouble...
