Hello! I'm a teenage girl from Australia who spends most of her free time (and also the time that isn't free =P) writing fanfiction. And that is all you really need to know. ;)

I have an account over on the Forums with the same username over there. Drop me a PM sometime! ;D

Some (but not many) of my fics can also be found at fanfiction.net under the username 'Lythdan Megend'. I always update here first, however.

My Stories

Life is But A Dream

Is on a temporary hiatus. It'll be finished someday, I assure you, because I know that the story cannot be left untold, and I really want to finish it myself.

The Bedroom at the Burrow

This Fred-centric story was written for the Autumn Challenge on the Forums for the prompt: The Next Great Adventure, where we had to write a story about a canon character who had passed away.

The funny thing is, I never liked the twins much before I wrote this story. Now I love them.

I am very pleased to say that this story came first in the Next Great Adventure Prompt.

The Inner Eye

Not one of my favourite fics of all time, but still a semi-decent read. This story was written for the Extra Credit: The New Professor prompt for the Autumn Challenge and came second in the prompt.

I never knew Trelawney could be so funny before. =P

Flame

My writing style in Flame I'm quite proud of, as the overall concept, but I think the twist at the end could have been a lot more thought-through.

Wait, did I say twist at the end? You didn't see that.

Where Lilies Grow

Written for the Telling The Truth prompt for the Autumn Challenge--I quite like this one, although I wish I hadn't tried to be so profound and there are still a few of those damned tense errors poking in there -somewhere-

I also find it quite annoying when people leave reviews for stories in the AU section telling me that certain events didn't happen in canon. So don't do that. Because pointing out the obvious is not really helpful.

The Very Best Gift of All

Nearly half my reviewers on ff.net told me that this story was so sweet it gave them cavities...so beware. Other then that, it's a nice story.

Phases of Learning

My first finished fic that isn't a one-shot-- Yay! It's a three-shot! I quite like this one, and the funny thing was I didn't quite come up with the Phases idea until I was stuck without a title. If I hadn't come up with the Phases idea, this story would have been a lot worse, I assure you.

An Exciting Life

This was written for a School Assignment, the mystery class I was in. The writing style's decent but I sort of made up the plot events one day and went, 'Yep. That's what going to happen.' Luckily, the characterisation is better than the plot, otherwise this fic would have little redeeming features. =P

Forgiveness

Someone should tell me to stop writing Severus/Lily. I quite liked this one, and the twist in it...(yeah, I should probably stop mentioning these things in my bio) but there's nothing very exceptional about it. Still a decent read though.

The Song of the Stars

This was written for dancingcarrot21 for the Secret Santa in '07. I spent ages worrying about Luna's characterisation, but I think I got it down eventually.

Talks With Plants and Crumple-Horned Snorkacks

I'm not going to admit how long it took me to spell Snorkack...apart from the fact that I just did. Luna doesn't have her usual dreamy quality, but Rolf is a funny guy.

Rowena's Song

This is one of the better fics I have written recently. I quite like the themes presented in the story, but also the humour involved. I thought that I would never be able to write a Founder-fic, but I guess I proved myself wrong. Huh. xD

Good Luck

Written for the Gauntlet Fifth Round, with Minerva McGonagall.

The Fourteenth of February

Written for a humour class on MNFF, it's actually an idea I came up with when talking about fanfiction on a train with a friend and how many suitors Lily seems to have in canon.

Pepperup Potions

Co-written with the wonderful Lilykinslove/Emma, this story explores a Snape/Madame Pomfrey relationship. We were assigned the pairing, in case you were wondering.

Saving Catherine

The longest one-shot I've written, not counting the Gauntlet. It was for a DADA class on the MNFF forums, and my second ever foray into Dark/Angst.

“Jordanna, trust me on this.”

She nodded. “I will.”

“Promise me you’ll do whatever – it – takes-”

“I will.”

But as the years passed, why couldn’t Jordanna help but feel like something was missing? Was she finally starting to realize that this wasn’t the lifestyle she wanted to live? And why did Adelaide Benton want her daughter to live this ridiculous life in the first place?

This is a one-shot written before DH, but just to be sure I've called it an AU fic.

Stupid Parties by Hansolohpfrk

Entry into the April One-Shot Challeng, which I happened to win

A Stolen Past by nuw255

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 428 Reviews Past Featured Story
Summary: Fifteen-year-old Harry Potter wakes up in his cupboard under the stairs at number four, Privet Drive with no memory of the past five years of his life. What happened to his memory? What do his strange dreams mean? And most importantly, how will he survive in a school for incurably criminal boys?


This is primarily a mystery, with a bit of shippiness thrown in here and there. Of course, if I told you WHO is involved in the shippiness, that would ruin part of the mystery, wouldn’t it?


This story takes place immediately after OotP (and thus disregards HBP).

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 1199 Reviews

Preparations by Vindictus Viridian

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 24 Reviews

Isabelle by Eilime

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 61 Reviews
Summary: Hermione Granger, a young woman of 25, is dreading the child custody case she about to delve into.

It was typical, she thought, that he was late. Lack of commitment, lack of respect, lack of general concern. Yes, how typical. Their meeting was to start in four minutes and he had better to turn up on time.

She couldn’t believe she was here, though, in the first place. It was very typical of him to want to claim what was rightfully his, or whatever nonsense he had thrown her way the other day when he had contacted her. His sense of pride, possession and monopoly astounded her. And over a human being, at that?

Hermione sighed as she reached out for her purse, opened it and pulled out her wallet from which she produced a small photograph taken of her and Isabelle just a week after her birth. That she may have to part with her daughter, if only part time, was devastating.


6th story in a series of Hermione/Draco one-shots (Check out my author page for more information)

--------------------------------------
A/N: Rated 6th-7th years for later chapters (violence, mostly, but concepts that kids can't comprehend, like noble sacrifice and possibly some sexual content).

Whether We Wear Masks by Seren

Rated:24 Reviews
