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!

A Marauder tale set during the first war. A story of love, hate, friendship and betrayal; and how, at the end of the day, you only have yourself, alone.
There is a LOT I would add to this now that DH has been released, but what's done is done.

All his life, Remus has known one thing: Love is not his friend. Love is the enemy for someone like him, which is why he denies it to himself. However, that denial could prove fatal as he and the woman he loves are sent on a mission that risks everything.
--------------------------------------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).

Everyone knows about what it was like for Harry Potter to enter Hogwarts for the first time and fight the Dark Lord for the Second. But no one knows what it was like for his best friend. No one knows what it was like to continue standing in someone's shadow. No one knows what it was like to always be second-noticed. No one knows what it was like for Ronald Weasley. This is an account of their first year through his eyes, told his way. No warnings, unless you count sibling rivalry as GA. I know the first chapter is long, but it's worth it to set the story off right. Enjoy! Please review and let me know what you thought!
Please, please review! Chapter Eleven is up and I beg your forgiveness for being so long with the updating!

Hermione sighed in relaxation. She was sitting in her favourite café, the cafe latte steaming cheerily on the small, round table as she immersed herself in the news of The Times. As she flipped a page, the newspaper folded annoyingly backwards and revealed the scenery beyond.
Hermione let out a piercing scream.
4th story in a series of Hermione/Draco one-shot

What happens when you put a hopelessly "romantic" man-hussy and a girl with a soft spot for bedtime activities (not THOSE activities, silly!) together in a dark bedroom? Well, I don't happen to know either, so I suppose we'll find out together, won't we? Come with me, Tia C. Spencer, on a lovely ride through the countryside... er, lakeside... okay, so we won't actually be riding NEXT to anything, but it will be lovely, I promise you that. How can it not be, with me as your illustrious (and quite possibly mad) companion?
And no, contrary to beliefs very likely impressed upon you by this summary, I'm not a gormless prat.
Well... not entirely.

Five years ago, half way through her third year at Hogwarts, Regan Jayden was expelled for reasons only she and a very select few know. But now that she's been allowed to return-- under certain terms-- in what would have been her graduating year, will she be able to regain the trust of her fellow Hogwarts students, and of herself?
Excerpt from story: Merlin, he was going soft, Draco thought as he tried not to grimace. He'd start spouting off poetry in a minute if he wasn't careful. This whole love thing was sending him round the twist.

ONE-SHOT. Minor fluff warning.
There was just no way around it. Whether it was necessary or not, heroic or not, there was simply no escaping the fact of his actions. He had killed.
And he made me just like him… Harry thought miserably.
