Hello there, I'm Ashley. I'm just your normal, every day Harry Potter obsessed sixteen year old. One day I hope to become a writer of historical fiction, my personal favorite, but until then I will remain happy with the joys of fanfiction. Happy reading!
I have now finished Lovers in the Moonlight, indeed an accomplishment, and am basically just doing random one-shots I have stored up. If anyone wants any more LitM, please suggest a good one-shot idea, or maybe something longer, and I will be glad to write it! I'm just really stumped on Irene right now. Other than that, I have two full chapter stories and their series stored up in my mind, which will be written this summer. Happy reading, everyone!

Draco Malfoy is alone, wanted by Death Eaters, and yearning for sheer love. His cold eyes wander the Daily Prophet
, smirking in an attempt to accept that fact he was a convicted Death Eater and wanted dead by both sides for betrayal. He seeks refuge in a chocolate frog instead of a bitter wheat cereal, his teeth savouring the sweet taste as he chewed, thinking only of dark things.
But upon staring at the prize that comes with the candy, a Wizard card, he finds himself whisked away to a dangerous place, the air filled to the brim with death, now feeling as if he will retch if he doesn’t escape. But he soon finds that he can’t. Running into giants, more cards, and a secret passageway that will ultimately determine his fate, Draco Malfoy will ultimately find his way home, whether it's the kind of home he wishes for, or one he must choose.
This was written for the Gauntlet by Ron x Hermione of Hufflepuff. The judges gave this story third place in the Gauntlet! Thanks so much to you guys!

Ronald Weasley struggles with his teaspoon's worth of emotions during Hermione's stay at the Burrow summer after fifth year. With the Twins succumbing the household to spontaneous product trials, and a new Minister of Magic, one would think that Hermione's Bulgarian pen pal would be the least of Ron's problems.
And that would be what one would get for thinking.
Surprises abound (the Good and the Bad) assure the Weasleys and their house guest this will be a summer all but one of them will never forget.
Final chapter is in queue. Wow, that took forever, didn't it?

Circe. How little do we know about this Greek goddess. She could turn grown men, strong enough to lift ten oxen, into beasts by herself. She was gorgeous. When the men wandered onto her lonely island of Aeaea, all they could do was stare at her beauty and grace.
When David, the leader of his own ship, on the hunt for treasures, awakes on her island to find three maidens standing before him, beckoning him to Circe's palace, he refuses, yet his men follow. He has no other choice but to go along.
Circe eventually tries to pull him into her bed, yet David refuses; he has a wife and child coming at home, and he is not the type of man to betray her.
But Circe always gets what she wants.
This is an entry by Ron x Hermione of Hufflepuff for the Wizard Card prompt. I am using the all-mighty maiden Circe.

It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.
If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.
This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)
EXCITING NEWS! "The E-Journal of an Evil Janitor" is now continued as a Twitter blog! Go to Twitter dot com and find thedarklord666. Voldy's waiting!

Summary: A storm. That's what their love had been…
Helga had known from the start that their relationship was doomed to fail, her obstinance and Salazar's pride too much for even love to overcome. But had it really
been love? As time passed she became less confident on the matter. She could only speak for her own heart... and she knew it would never find peace until she faced him one last time. She had to brave one last storm. Rating and warning for brief, rather vague mention of past relations.

So many children had passed through her class in the small Primary School of Little Whinging, and Miss. Morrison liked to think she remembered them all. The shy ones, who hid behind their mothers legs or curled up in their fathers protective arms; the boisterous ones, who ran in small, never ending circles with boundless energy. The smart ones and the ones who struggled, sometimes bravely and sometimes with tears and tantrums. The short ones and the tall ones, the sweet and the mischievous; they were all special to her, in their own way, and they all earned themselves a special place in her memories. All of them, that is, except for one.

What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.
RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!

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).

ONE SHOT: A woman sits alone in a cell, her thoughts consumed by her pain and loss. Finally, she gets a chance to face the one who took the life of her one true love.The dripping had been constant from the moment she had been locked away; she suspected that her captors had placed her in this specific cell in hopes that it would drive her mad.
They needn’t have bothered. The only man she had ever loved was dead. She was already mad.
This is definitely not my usual style, so I’d love to know what you think.
