I solemnly swear I am up to no good…
12 January 2008:
I'd like to wish a happy new year to everyone and, regrettably, inform you that I won't be writing a lot of fanfiction anymore. I don't have the time to contribute to it anymore and what time I do have I would like to put towards writing something original that hopefully you will all see on a Borders shelf someday. "Of the Cursed" will be deleted, and you can consider Harry's adventure to continue in a canon-like fashion from the end of "Cruciatus Cursed" onward. I'm so sorry, but thank you for your support, and I'm glad to have pleased you with most of my works. : )
Hello to you, fellow Harry Potter fans. I am Miss Moony, and welcome to my profile. There isn’t much to say about me, nor do I care to say a lot about myself anyway, so here are the important things that you might need to know for future reference if you care to read my stories:
I write only the following ships: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Remus/Tonks.
My favourite characters are Remus Lupin (bet you never could have guessed), Sirius Black, and Snape.
My least favourite characters are Voldemort (go figure) and Dumbledore (I have my reasons).
My favourite HP books are Prisoner of Azkaban and Order of the Phoenix
Patience is a virtue that I do not possess. Therefore, if I can update quickly, trust me when I say I will.
I answer all reviews I receive. Period.
If you are bored and care to read an excellent fiction, may I suggest Nuw255, Tagidi Riva, Abbs866, or weasleybabe24? They are fantastic.
That’s about all at the moment, so I hope you enjoy my fictions and that you will leave a review if you have some time. I would really appreciate it. Below are some quotes that you may peruse for fun at your leisure if you are bored enough (as I collect a good many of them), and the banner for my first posted fiction, “Cruciatus Cursed”.
If you actually read this without getting bored and taking a break halfway through, then coming back to it later, I shall be quite impressed.

Summary: The hunt for the Horcruxes begins. Harry has to decide who to trust as he moves closer to fulfilling his destiny. Will he be able to find and destroy all the Horcruxes? And at what price? Will he be able to find the strength within himself – the Power the Dark Lord Knows Not – in order to succeed in vanquishing Voldemort? And…can he do it and still get the girl? Join Harry and his faithful friends on their quest to finally defeat a Dark Lord.
Summary: Dumbledore is going senile, Ron's eating is out of control, and poor Hagrid... will he ever realize his true strength before he kills someone?? This starts off at the beginning of the school year and ends with a detailed account of how Harry finally defeats Lord Voldemort. I poke fun at stereotypes and clichés in fan fiction, and even joke about some things in the actual books. It’s pretty much everything – in a nutshell (or is it nuthouse?).
Summary: What if, all the world's a stage, and the characters of HP fan fiction are actors? This is the story of what happened between 'gigs', when characters meet in the Great Hall to share their complaints about how they're portrayed. Dumbledore has been rooted out of retirement after 'dying', James has doubts about Harry's paternity, Remus rants, and Voldemort does a Gilderoy.
In short, mayhem ensues.
These are not Jo's sterling characters. This group of players has been forced to enact some of the most atrocious parts in fan fiction-dom, and they're all primed and ready for the casting grouch.
Summary: AU afterthe release of HBP, one-shot ONLY. Given the choice between right and easy, Tonks chooses right... and saves Harry from a horrible fate.
Summary: It’s Harry’s last year at Hogwarts and as he has already expected – with experience in having troublesome adventures before – this year is going to be a year full of surprises. Voldemort has a plan! Chocolate frogs, ambiguous but semantic evil schemes, ominous word games, a succinct letter, incongruous French lecture, inexcusable slovenliness, birds and bees with eloquence, intolerable impatience and something goes terribly wrong… Now complete
Excerpt: Harry woke up with a start. He couldn't remember what he had dreamt about, but he knew it hadn't been a good dream - sweat made his hair cling to his forehead and his pyjamas clung to his body like a homeless person would cling on to a lamp post in a hurricane.
Summary: Am I insane? Perhaps. Perhaps not. I have no way of knowing for sure.
Summary: What happens when Dumbledore has his latest "brilliant" idea, to start an advice column, and call it 'Dear Dumby'? Letters from some of our favourite Hogwarts students, some of our not so favourite Hogwarts students, some not even Hogwarts students at all, and, of course, lots of madness!
Pre-HBP for obvious reasons!
Nominee for the Best Humour Award in the Quicksilver Quill Awards! Many thanks to all who voted for it!
Summary: Two vanishing cabinets and eight teenagers in two different decades. In 1977, James, Sirius, Remus, and a reluctant Lily try to travel to the future. At the same time in 1997, Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny attempt to get to the past. Their paths collide and now they are all stuck in time. What happens when they try to get home?
Summary: ~~Saving Me lyrics by Nickleback.~~ Sirius Black was thinking of how he ruined Lily and James’s life—of how he told them to take that rat for a secret keeper. He wanted to escape, had to escape. He wasn’t made for this. He was born to be free, born to live with the Potters. Born to live with James. But James, his best mate, was gone. Dead. Murdered.
Summary: Halloween 1981 from the perspective of Sirius Black...one-shot.
Summary: Ginny has had just about enough to do with boys. To her surprise, she's not the only one who thinks the males of Gryffindor could use a good hexing.
Summary: On the night of the third Triwizard task, Cornelius Fudge refused to listen to reason. Dumbledore's only option was to reconvene the Order of the Phoenix. And the only person he could send was someone who mustn't be seen.
"I need you to set off at once. You are to alert Remus Lupin, Arabella Figg, Mundungus Fletcher — the old crowd. Lie low at Lupin's for a while; I will contact you there." (GOF, Ch 36, "The Parting of the Ways")
Summary: A Glimpse into Harry Potter's life as an adult wizard shows us that growing up doesn't mean growing apart.
Harry goes through his troubles in a branch off of the Order called the Living Wizards. He tracks and finds his godfather, Sirius, who disappeared when the war against Voldemort began. He also becomes closer with old and new friends as he follows his destiny to destroy Voldemort.
I'd like to thank my beta, Lily_greeneyes! She helps a lot!
Summary: Have you ever wondered what would have looked like Harry's escape from the Dursleys in Prisoner of Azkaban from Sirius Black's point of view? Watch the scene while our favorite Animagus tries to get a glimpse of his godson before heading for his long journey.
This was written for the In-House July Challenge in my house, Slytherin. Enjoy!
Summary: So what was REALLY going on while Harry was being forced to stay at the Dursley’s? How did everyone end up at Headquarters, anyway? Will Ron ever get the courage to tell Hermione how he feels? Here’s the story of what was happening while Harry wasn’t at Number 12, Grimmauld Place that summer before fifth year.
Wow! Over 6000 reads!
Summary: Post-OOTP Harry and his friends have much more to worry about than classes and homework. They face the constant threat of Death Eaters and Lord Voldemort as the Second War takes hold. As teenagers, their roles in the war are expected to be minimal. However, Harry soon finds he and his friends must play a larger role than they ever imagined. The story will also involve the beginnings of H/G and R/Hr. Chapter 28 submitted! :)
Summary: A HBP missing moment. What exactly went through Ron’s head as he watched the Harry and Ginny’s newfound relationship come into full bloom before his eyes?
Summary: "Be careful what you wish for," the old adage goes. So what happens when Hogwarts is under a spell where what you say is what you get?
Chappie 14 is UP! And while it is the end, let us not be sad, but instead read the insanity that has driven so many to review and nearly wet themsleves with delight.
Summary: Severus has an apology to make to a first year student, in spite of misgivings and several personal rules of conduct.
This is rated for some shadowed implications of events past, none of which quite fit in the warnings.
Summary: At the start-of-term feast in Harry's third year, Dumbledore introduces "Professor Lupin, who has kindly consented to fill the post of Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher." Is Dumbledore merely being gracious, or is there a tale behind his choice of words? What would it take to persuade Lupin to come and teach at Hogwarts?
