Three words: Beatles, Shakespeare, Harry Potter. That is how my friends describe me, though I'm not sure how I feel about being summed up in terms of individuals rather than characteristics. I am a college student (majoring in history and gender studies), an anglophile, a traveller, I make my own jewelry, and I love white cotton peasant blouses. And of course, I've been a Potterhead for eight years now. I loved Deathly Hallows, but I miss Lupin :(
The locals in a sleepy corner of the Cheviot Hills are surprised to discover that they have new neighbours.

Summary: The summer after fifth year, Severus Snape realises that he has to decide between Lily and his Dark companions and pursuits.

Easier said than done.
Scorpius had never looked forward to anything the way he looked forward to leaving Hogwarts with Rose. He planned a holiday with no friends, no family, and nothing to do but be together—until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
James Potter has changed: no longer an arrogant, irresponsible prankster, he has matured into a responsible Head Boy with tops marks in Transfiguration. Lily Evans has changed as well: normally studious and in control, she has lost focus as she struggles with Head Girl responsibilities and N.E.W.T level studies. An unexpected encounter in the corridors one weekend leads to several startling realizations, the least of which is that things have definitely changed between James Potter and Lily Evans.

Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.
