Somebody who really, really ought to be doing something else but just can't stop writing.
As of late, someone who's been too busy doing something else, but it's almost over now. Look here for the latest word: http://friendsofvisarts.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=chitchat
Announcement: HP and the Heirs of Slytherin: I've also been making drawings for the first page of each chapter, which are on display in the MNFF Forum, here.
Announcement: "Fair Exchanges:"
This fanfic has exceeded all boundaries of taste (as you should have noticed by Chapter 5). My intended Chapter 22 could not be posted on this site. Unfortunately, unlike other chapters that were pushing the limit, that one could not be either left out or tweaked back in line, as it keeps coming back to haunt our favorite dour Potions professor.
This is no one's fault; please, no mod-bashing. I've been letting my creativity run wild on this fic and it's gone in some very strange places, not the least of which was the Real Chapter 22. Unfortunately this time, it was in violation of MNFF's posted content restrictions. I never imagined the story would go this way when I began posting, but it has evolved into its own sort of evil life form and now it needs a new habitat.
Soooo...here's the deal. Here at MNFF, I've posted the very end of the story just to wrap it up for local readers. If you want to find out how it all ends, just read the posted Ch. 22, 23, and epilogue.
If you'd like to read the whole thing, I'm archiving it at The Petulant Poetess. TPP has the entire story up-to-date, though it is not yet complete. It also includes The Real Chapter 8, another Missing Bit that was too squicky for MNFF. Titled "What Goes Around," this chapter recounts the time Lucius Malfoy dropped by to have a word with Professor Snape regarding the Umbridge Incident... ;)
All of my HP fanfics can be found at my livejournal (Fawkes_07.livejournal.com) but all adult entries are friendlocked. If you don't have a Livejournal account, just create one (it's free) and then either friend me or email me. I'll add you to my Friends list and voila, all will be readable.
Finally, if you really like my writing, you might want to check out my book (turondo.com is its website). It's the true story about an unlikely adventure I had in another fandom a few years ago ("unlikely" being the most garish understatement of all time). Let me put it this way: If you crave that Fawkesey snark, well, Teh Book has it in spades.
Okay! Enjoy your reading!

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.

[WIP] Post-HBP. Eleven years after the end of the war, Hermione finds herself in a delicate situation when her only son leaves for Hogwarts and threatens her most guarded secret: that he’s not only a Granger, but also a Snape! SS/HG.

Sometimes, perspective is everything.
From day one at Hogwarts, Severus Snape had problems, half of his own making, half not; how one interprets those problems depends entirely on one's point of view.
At least with Severus, one principle is always consistent: he gives just as good as he gets.

At some point there had to have been a choice.
The logical place to begin a story is at the point of the first decision. But what if there were no decisions? What if, at every point, there was only one possible act? What if the story simply cannot be told?
Completed (though not posted) entirely pre-DH.

Oh how can I lure you to Read and Review?
When this was first penned all its clichés were new.
There’s angst laced with humour and tender enchantment,
The grammar and lexicon serve as enhancement.
And who could object to Snape’s wholesale redemption,
Or thoughts about sex – sufficient temptation?
PRACTICALLY THE OLDEST SNAPE-HERMIONE ON THE NET.
