Thanks to whittyleah for my FABULOUS author banner!
Hello everyone. *waves ecstatically*
I started writing fanfiction when I was about eleven. It was a story about the Famous Five which I never finished but I was so proud! :)
I love Harry Potter, obviously, and live in a world entirely my own. I think Potterphiles are the most intelligent and interesting people on the planet, which is why I love spending time with you guys on the net. No one else in real life is nearly as cool. And they all think i'm weird, too, which is a drag, but hey, if being a Potterphile makes me weird, then I am damn proud of it!
I hope you guys will read and review my fics, as I just love hearing from all of you!
Keep writing, reading, procrastinating, and being potty, guys. Love ya!

Stories i'm currently working on
Blood and Honour: A Sirius Black Story is coming along nicely, although I am constantly giving it an intense revision and editing makeover. But I hope you'll follow my story and enjoy it.
Summary: Voldemort's rising reign of terror, NEWTs, death attempts, a Headship, a tangled affair with James Potter, hilarity, grief, love, secrecy, maddness... it's almost hard to believe that I've survived to graduate. I am Lily Evans, and this is my 7th year.
Summary: Hullo! I'm Lily Evans, and I'm starting my seventh year at Hogwarts soon. I'm Head Girl with James Potter, which I'm secretly thrilled about, emphasis on the secretly. Seriously secretly, like even to me, kind of. Well, I must be off!
Hey! Lily! Oh, sorry, so rude of me, I'm Anna, Anna Boothe. Lily's uh, hold on let me grab my trunk, it's just slipped out of my fingers. Where was I? Oh yes, Lily's best friend. We're inseperable, really. Like two peas in a pod and whatnot. Where is she, anyway? Er, well it was nice meeting you, I've got to go catch the train!
Oi! Did you just see Evans? I've been looking for her and I thought I just saw her here. I'm rather excited about being Head Boy with her; it'll give me a chance to show her the real James Pot--
What are you going on about, Prongs? Why are you even listening to this nutter? We've got to catch the train. Probably talking to you about Evans, am I right? He would talk to a tree about Evans if he could. Moony, Wormtail, help me get this starry-eyed git onto the train before it leaves without us...
You two are helpless, don't you think, Pete?
More helpless than two Grindylows out of water...

Warnings: Excessive amounts of romance, jealousy, and PMS.
I'm a'comin with the newest chapter!!
Summary: We all know James and Lily's relationship ended on a Halloween night with two bright green flashes, but how did it begin?
Were they introduced by friends? Did their eyes meet across a crowded room? Did it perhaps start with a small hello? Did they just lay eyes on each other and immediately hate one another?
Or maybe it began with a perfectly timed, destined chance encounter ... a coincidence, as some would say.
Join James and Lily in their Seventh year at Hogwarts as they recollect the times throughout their Hogwarts years that brought them together.
Teensiest bit of AU included, nothing major.
Summary: During her sixth year, Lily finally decides to give the Marauders a chance. To Lily's surprise, it works out better than any of them could have expected. Now, the summer before her seventh year, the five friends decide to get together for a series of meetings to keep them from losing touch. But what happens when Lily starts to feel more than just friendship for James? And just what is making Sirius and James act so strangely?
Summary: James Potter's once privileged and sheltered life alters dramatically as Lord Voldemort increases his stronghold on Great Britain. While a rational but brilliant Transfiguration teacher, a grieving socialite mother, a star-gazing, forest-dwelling centaur, and a host of other characters contemplate the vicious and constant conflict between Good and Evil, James embarks on a dangerous life fuelled by passion, love, anger and blood...
Things can only get redder.
Chapter 20 is up, and it's been nominated for the Quicksilver Quills!
Summary: James is going to be stuck with Lily for the entire summer...wait...isn't that supposed to be a good thing? In between all the angst and indecision, will these two EVER get together? Hmmm...maybe with a little help with a birdie named Sirius...
Summary: As the Marauders enter their seventh year, James has one goal: to get Lily Evans. Lily is just trying to stay away from him. Remus and Sirius are coming out with a plan. Will they all get what they want, or will they get back something completely unexpected?
Chapter seven is up!

SEE NOTE ON AUTHOR'S BIO REGARDING THE NEXT CHAPTER.
Remus Lupin has always been different, ever since he was bitten by a werewolf and forced to live his life with the curse. He had no friends and never expected to have any until he started Hogwarts. But even once he entered school his wish didn't come true, until his third year. Remus would soon learn that with every good comes something equally bad.
Excerpt from Chapter Nineteen:
“What do you want, Lupin?” he asked exasperatedly.
“You hate me, don’t you?” Remus said in a friendly manner, as though he and Snape had been best friends since infancy.
“Gee, what tipped you off?” Snape retorted sarcastically.
“Then you would love to see me get hurt, wouldn’t you?”
“Well yes, I would enjoy that.”
“Especially if it was of my own doing?”
“That would make it even more amusing.”
“Then would you do me the favor of telling Larry Wilkins that I’d like to meet him out by the greenhouses at ten o’ clock tonight?”
Summary: Sirius was killed by Bellatrix. When he lands headlong at his dead best friend’s feet, he is a little perplexed. All is soon explained, however. He has reached Heaven, and James is here to welcome him. Before he can begin to get used to life in Heaven, he must first “watch his life” on the large screen in front of him, because it will help him understand things better. And so, that’s what he does. From the very beginning, to the very end. You too, can follow him through the ups and downs. Follow him through the highs and the lows. Follow him through the laughter, the pain, and the romance. Follow him through the story of his life. This fic is a tribute to Sirius Black. It is not all marauder-era, although a bulk of it is, and that is why it’s in this category.
At sixteen, Sirius looked forward to summer holiday until he was banished to Scotland. Unable to use magic, he’s faced with a dilemma. How to impress a pretty villager? With a little help from his friends. . . SBOC
Summary: A new term at Hogwarts begins and all is as normal as possible when there is a war going on, that is. But the world turns upside down for James Potter, Lily Evans and their friends. Romances will spark (some will ignite) and friendships will be stretched to their limits. But, as everyone knows- c'est la vie- that's life.
Warnings for MILD violence and just a few character deaths in later chpters. Just warning you...
Summary: The story of the wonderful life of Sirius Black told by the one and only, Sirius Black!
CHAPTER 5 SUBMITTED!
Summary: James is mad over Lily Evans. He can’t get her out of his thoughts, out of his heart. He tried to win her over many times and every single time he was turned down. Still, he continues to pursue her with a half-crazed obsession. Lily swore never to have anything to do with James Potter and his conceited ways. The laws of attraction are confusing and dangerous though and without her consent she begins to fall for him over the last two years of school.
Fifth Chapter, Padfoot or Evans? is being written. I'd like a few more reviews before I submit it, but it isn't a requirement, of course. Just a wish by me. As for those who have already reviewed - thank you so much! I'm glad to have you all! *hugs* Never fear, for chapter five is drawing near!
Summary: I'd always thought of myself as the 'favorite child'. But when Lily got her letter, I was suddenly lost in the background.
What really brought Petunia to hate Lily and Harry so much?
