Hey, I'm Iris. I started writing MNFF fanfic several years ago, but I've been on hiatus for a while. Needless to say, I'm a rabid Harry Potter fanatic.
Some random things about me:
Favorite books: The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling (betcha didn't see that one coming), Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, Sweetblood and Invisible by Pete Hautman, Luna by Julie Anne Peters, all Amelia Atwater-Rhodes novels, The God Eaters by Jesse Hajicek, and many more I can't think of right now
Interests: Music, books, films, writing, freakdom, animals, the arts, HARRY POTTER (duh), anything related to Harry Potter, various causes including, but not limited to, animal rights, LGBT rights, Darfur, Tibet, mind freedom, and the environment
Harry Potter books from favorite to least favorite: Deathly Hallows, Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, Philosopher's Stone, and Chamber of secrets
Favorite HP characters: Luna, Remus, Tonks, Dumbledore, Bellatrix, Neville, and Snape
Favorite television shows: Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Simpsons, Invader ZIM, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I used to have a section here for my favorite music, but my tastes change so frequently I deleted it. If you want to compare musical tastes, just talk to me. =-]
Favorite movies: All the Harry Potter movies except 5 (which they absolutely MUTILATED), RENT, Sweeney Todd, Big Fish, American Beauty, Spirited Away, The Simpsons Movie, Pi, Chicago, The Royal Tenenbaums, Little Miss Sunshine, and The Princess Bride
Favorite colors: Violet and black at the moment.
NOTE: As of June 1, 2010, I am attempting to get some fic written that I'm not ashamed of showing. My extended hiatus MAY be over soon, but know that I am very busy and not the most reliable updater. You have been warned.

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!

In Remus Lupin's fifth year at Hogwarts, his devoted friends finally master the complex Animagus spell, beginning the adventures they will remember for the rest of their lives. But Remus must also face prejudice in the rising war, a test of loyalty versus love, and the danger of his dark secret being revealed.
Pet Peeve Disclaimer: Peter is not worthless, Lily does not have three friends who fall for the Marauders, and no one calls Remus "Remy."

A ballad about my favorite conflicted hero and the lengths to which his loyalty drives him.
Second place entry in The Ballad Challenge
6th-7th Years • 960 Reviews
Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle
before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love
between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?

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!

Theodore Nott has never had much respect for anyone but himself. But after being summoned by Lord Voldemort to join the Death Eaters, his world turns upside down, and he finds himself questioning everything, including his own values and beliefs. Darkish, but with surprisingly light and fluffy bits, kind of like my Dad's pancakes or a truly hideous dress that my Mum once bought for me.
Written by Schmerg_The_Impaler from Hufflepuff House for the Gauntlet's 3rd run. Whoot!

A compilation of the most commonly used Harry Potter clichés in the fandom. Features Angsty!Harry, Sweet!Draco, Head Dorms, sudden romances in the forms of Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny and of course, Draco/Hermione, because what's a cliché without them?
The Marauders also make an appearance in this fic, including Lily/Lily's best friend/Lily's other best friend.
Warning: mention of hippopotamuses inside.
Chapter Five is up! The story is done. Also, thank you to everyone who nominated this neatly tied bundle of ridiculousness in the QQ awards, I really appreciate it!
