Hi there. Sadie here. :)
Edit: Whoa. I won the QQ Awards?! OH MY GOODNESS! *DIES WITH JOY* Wow! I'm honored, guys, thank you. It was flattering enough just being nominated along with so many other amazing fics. *Bows before other nominees* An extra special thank-you and chocolate kisses to everyone who nominated it, for everyone on the panel who voted for it, and for everyone who continues to support it. You guys are the absolute best readers an author could ever have. *Hugs tightly* Thanks to the MNFF mods for holding the contest and for sending me this beautiful banner as well:

I'm an English/Political Science major-- sophmore in college. I was a LOTR fan first and foremost, until four years ago when a friend of mine quite literally forced me to read Philosopher's Stone. I'm happy she did, because I can't imagine my life without my beloved Harry.
I'm a bit of a delusional shipper, as it were. Canon does and always will come first, but romance is a personal preference, so really can't be held to the "canon standard." R/Hr + H/G = the monster living under my bed that I've feared since childhood. Every H/Hr story I write is an attempt to slay that monster. ;)
To my "Fifteen Minutes" readers: I'd just like to clarify that I do not believe in suicide. I know this story portrayed it in an almost noble light, but it remains an act of cowardice and selfishness. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, and if you experience suicidal thoughts, I beg that you tell someone close to you.
--Avenged Sevenfold: Wow. I can't believe it's been nearly 4 months since my last update. Perhaps, in a response to a review on the upcoming Chapter 15, I'll explain myself. But for now, I'd just like to assure everyone that I'm back in action, and I'll not be leaving you guys hanging. Chapter 15 is now posted.
--Through the Fire: This story is coming along at a painfully slow pace. I do intend on finishing it, but AS is my heart's project and so TtF will be playing second fiddle until AS is complete.
--The Mourning After: This one's undergoing some major construction at the moment, so I've taken it off the site for now. It'll be back in due time.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if the urge strikes you! (My screen name is SecretKeeper87)
It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.
No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.
Update (9 May): Chapter 17, Burning, is up! Enjoy!
Summary: What happens when two friends, who had never thought of each other in a romantic way, meet in the most unlikely of situations? Love happens. Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, for one night, both just want to escape the confines of their own identities. When they meet, both under the influence of Polyjuice Potion, and fall in love, their lives become a comical mixture of dates and mishaps.
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
Summary: Their silly little worries—her tantalizing lips, his maddening behavior—drew them together in something much deeper, longer lasting…something that changed lives, righted wrongs, and opened new paths…something that could bring oil and vinegar together in a startling web of care and hope, of understanding and reasoning, recklessness and piercing emotions…
