(Banner by the lovely, Caren H *hugs* Thank you!)
My name is Megan Shafer and I live in Southern California. I enjoy reading Harry Potter as well as writing Harry Potter fanfic. Unfortunately upon coming back to MMFF after a two year break, I promptly deleted my five site-published stories. (*cringe-high school writings...*)
Pending some pretty grueling do-overs, I may republish my main fiction -a Marauder Era/ OC-centric story I callled "Bad Moon Rising." (@ my once regular readers, *hugs*)
Anyway, about myself:
I am in fact married to RJL. (See missing chapter of Deathly Hallows)
I live in a fairly quiet Southern California city.
I have three siblings, all who don't care for anything HP, all who I regularly remind are philistines, in the case.
I hope to someday be an arcitect or city planner.
And also to be a mother.

As for my work in progress, Chapter One of "Between the Bars" (A First War, Remus/OC Fic) should be up any day now!
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: Remus Lupin tolerates mischievous friends and lycanthropy, while the prophetic Ariadne MacDougal negotiates a misguided family, and everyone must deal with the Death Eaters. A rather dark coming-of-age story about the death of innocence and the renewal of hope during Voldemort’s first war.
Part I of The Moon-Cursers. Now updated to be DH-compatible.
Summary: Hermione is abused both mentally and physically by those that should love her the most to the point that she can't take it. During her first week of Hogwarts she is haunted by nightmares of her home. She decides to use the time turner to make a difference in her life. Though there is an accident and she ends up farther than she expected. In the time of the marauders. When she finds a life she loves, will she go back? HGRL pairing
Summary: Epilogue up.
Luna Lovegood, fresh out of Hogwarts, is assigned her first article abroad in rural England for the Quibbler. However, she encounters a strange story in this small town. Soon, she finds herself entangled in a web and race to save the life of a former Death Eater.
Luna Lovegood/Draco Malfoy.
Post-Hogwarts, Mystery, Draco/OC, Other Pairing story.
Dedicated to Poultrygeist who presented to me an unforgettable plot bunny.
Severus Snape has ambitions to rise above his humble beginnings. Eris Greyback has a family debt to repay. Their romance is a more complicated brew than the trickiest of potions. SSEG, LEJP. The sequel, The Potions Master's Apprentice, is also complete.
*Winner of the 2007 QSQ Award for Best Marauder Era Story*
Summary: Was he always evil? A little something I wrote in my spare time about Severus Snape.
Summary: Slightly angsty, slightly twinge-of-sadness RemusxSirius. Post-PoA oneshot. Sirius remembers how things were and a flying motorbike is involved...
Summary: The young and bored Sirius Black amuses himself with the top hat in his closet, inspired by the nefarious influence of Muggle television. **Warning -- natural rabbit behaviour within**
The Amazing and Adaptable, Quick and Accurate, Handy-Dandy Spell-Check Quill by Vindictus Viridian

Summary: *COMPLETED!*What happens when you put a hopelessly "romantic" man-hussy and a girl with a soft spot for bedtime activities (not THOSE activities, silly!) together in a dark bedroom? Well, I don't happen to know either, so I suppose we'll find out together, won't we? Come with me, Tia C. Spencer, on a lovely ride through the countryside... er, lakeside... okay, so we won't actually be riding NEXT to anything, but it will be lovely, I promise you that. How can it not be, with me as your illustrious (and quite possibly mad) companion?
And no, contrary to beliefs very likely impressed upon you by this summary, I'm not a gormless prat.
Well... not entirely.
Summary: Severus has never seen the appeal of repetition, particularly of things that ended badly the first time. In his life, he has kept one pet, owned one broom, and had one close friend.
Winner of Mod Quicksilver Quill for Best Novel! Thanks, all!
Rating and warnings do not apply to all chapters; I just didn't want anyone hooked and then shocked.
Summary: Severus Snape finds himself a resident of Azkaban for his deeds and misdeeds during Voldemort's reign. A broken man, he is struggling merely to stay alive when one of the guards takes an interest in him. This is an interest that could get her into serious trouble as she tries to save the life of a man who may not want to be saved.
And I must credit the wonderful Poultrygeist for the title and Anne for her sterling beta work! Thank 'ee. :-)
Summary: Regulus Black only lasted a week. (HBP spoilers, ahoy.)
Updated 22/01 with the revised, beta-read version. :)
Summary: Pigwidgeon is very sad. It seems that Ron hates him. Can Hedwig help? PigwidgeonxHedwig; only fic of its kind!
Summary: On Andromeda and decisions and loves and regrets. Poetry, peculiar.
No fixed rhyme scheme or meter; jumps to and fro between styles rather erratically.
Summary: COMPLETE. A woman visits Hogwarts expressly to meet Severus Snape. Her eccentric aunt led her to believe that he was the kindest, handsomest man to ever grace the earth. What will she do when she discovers the awful truth - let a few minor imperfections stand in the way of romance? Highly Improbable has been recognized by the Multifaceted Awards as Winner in the Laughter Category and Runner-Up in the Identity Category (Best Original Character), and also by MNFF's first annual Quicksilver Quills Awards. Thanks, MuggleNet!
Summary: A procrastinating Potions master puts his worst foot forward as he makes an unwavering, albeit unconventional attempt to prevent Hermione's marriage. Will forty-eight hours afford Severus Snape sufficient time to convince her that he is a supercilious and unmitigated nuisance? Written in response to the Spring Faire Festival's "I Want to Kiss the Bride" story option.
Summary: This is the tale of what happens when a war-weary Auror returns to Hogwarts only to find that one last battle awaits...in the form of Potions master Severus Snape. A romance with healthy doses of humor, angst, and Quidditch!
Summary: Harry's sixth year; the burden of the prophecy, the grief over the loss of Sirius, the wizarding war, blossoming romances, the new Quidditch Captain, Weasley family drama - and that's just part of it.
