Hey all fellow authors, readers, Harry Potter fanatics :P,
My name is Rachel and I'm sixteen in May. I'm quiet, kind of shy, a daydreamer and artsy/creative I guess. I like Art - drawing and painting. Most of my stuff is just doodles and sketches which I just sort of keep in a drawer, but I have sketchbooks too. I like writing, i like reading. I like exploring, I like walking in the countryside and feeding the ducks. If I could go back in time, I'd meet Beatrix Potter for a day and we'd go up a hill and paint and write stories about the animals there; I'd meet Shirley Hughes and ask her to teach me how she draws and writes, and I'd go back to Jane Austen's life and find out who Elizabeth Bennet was and whether Mr Darcy exists for every eligible bachelorette!
I like singing, dancing and acting too, but usually only in my room since my dancing is umm...interesting! I hate Maths and science. I wanna kill algebra one day. I love kids and their imaginations. I love looking after them and I like inventing stories and games for them.
I'm doing English language and literature for the the next year (and hopefully after). Writing is a skill that has to be practised to become anything, so I figured, writing stories is pretty much a way to keep me motivated!. I love harry potter and JK Rowling is pure genius. She's my favourite author, hands down. I don't care about all those people who make digs at her by saying she only writes basic literature for kids...so? Just look at this site, dedicated to her :)
Since I was little I've always wanted to write professionally. Nowadays I'd still love to write a book, but realistically that's quite a big dream! Whether or not I publish a book, creative writing is a really useful skill to develop. So writing fanfiction is the way forward! It's far more fun and way less stressful than school will ever be - and no one judges you!
I like general fanfiction, but Harry Potter's all I've ever written. I almost started a Lost fanfic once since I'm really into that show and believe that Kate and Jack are made for one another! Lol. Anyway. At some point, I'll get my next fanfic up. I swear, exams and school are almost NOT worth the effort...but once they're over I am going to SIT DOWN with a HUGE cup of tea and write a fanfic :)
PS: Check out my awesome, wicked banner for "The New Surprise". All the credit goes to sayiansirius, who made it for me. Oh and HPobsession helped ;). Thanks guys!!
Here is the bit for all you lot reading "The New Surprise". Chapter 15 got deleted first time round, so that's why there was a wait. I had to completely re-write it, but I think the 2nd draft has improved a lot, so I'm glad really! Again, my apologies for making you wait!!

Really just Hermione's POV when she finds out she's pregnant, One-Shot
• 115 Reviews
Hermione Granger is not the person everyone thinks… sure, she regards the rules more than most people and tries her best to keep her grades perfect, but a real teenage girl resides. This story is Hermione’s diary, and if you read it, you will read about the girl that is hidden by the bookworm, and we will explore Hermione’s real thoughts. Rated PG-13 for language.
Author’s Note: This fic was written BEFORE the publication of HBP, so it will follow through OotP cannon.
And, I promise that the story is better than the summary! ;)
Chapter Five accepted!! The story is finished now... you know you wanna review!
