Just some basic info...

hair: golden brown

eyes: green-brown

I'm just a girl who would like to become a writer or world famous clarinetist. Not too ambitious eh?

I drive a 1979 volvo.

Anyone interested in making banners or betaing future stories or whatever e-mail me at

I love everything about Harry Potter and Jo's wonderful way with words.

TWHHT is not my first fan fic, however it is the first I've posted on this site AND the first J/L fic I've written. I really like this genre even if there are many authors. I hope that TWHHT comes across as a very different sort of l/j fic--that's what I'm aiming for.

My lovely beta is Ravynwood. Without her, I would be in serious trouble!

I'd like to leave you with a writer's blessing:

"May your pens be ever full of ink, jealous eyes safely distant, your mind filled with inspiration, and your readers amazed."

I'm Mrs. Remus Lupin

Who is your Jane Austen hero?

Your hero is Fitzwilliam Darcy! As gentleman, he is a man of judgement, sense and education. His tall figure, handsome features and mien underline his noble character. Because of his sometimes serious and brooding manner, Mr Darcy is ill-qualified to recommend himself to others, but has nevertheless a gentle, generous and good-natured temper. His severest fault is his unforgiving attitude to the vices and follies of others and pride in his own judgement. Being united with the woman he loves, Mr Darcy will love violently.Take this quiz!

30 July 07: Chapter 15 up and runnin'!! Eventually, 16 forward will post. Thanks you guys - and yay Deathly Hallows! No Spoilers, but definite cannon!!!!!

Even Harry wondered how in the world the obvious loathing Lily felt for James could have turned into a marriage. How could they have loved each other? Well, if this ever bothered or troubled you in the slightest, look no further! 'The Princess and Prat' picks up around the time of the Pensieve Scene in book 5...

Read "The Princess & the Prat" to find out how it all began!!! Also posted on, with over 1110 reviews.

Ginny Weasley wakes up in The Burrow, her seventh year at Hogwarts is not far away. As she dwells on going to school without Ron, Hermione and Harry her heart lurches as she thinks of what she could have had if she'd given Harry a different answer.

Chapter 20 - A Question Without An Answer - has been validated! That marks the end of this story! Enjoy!

This is great. I wanted to slap Harry when he broke up with ginny in HBP, so I'm always glad when I read a good get-back-together scene.

I truly like this. It's an interesting point of view I haven't read in a good long time.


Summary: James Potter and Lily Evans weren't exactly buddies at first sight. They began virtually as enemies. Gradually, however, they came to respect each other and like each other at Hogwarts. Somehow, that like turned to an eternal love.

Described through the memories of all who knew them, this is the story that follows them through the seven years in Hogwarts, as their rocky relationship develops into a bond that becomes the envy everyone. This is the story that describes the difficulties that they encounter during the terrible years of You-Know-Who's reign. This is the story of the parents of The Boy who Lived. This is the story of the love between Lily Evans and James Potter.

Chapter Five (Friends?) posted - Lily walks into the world she never knew.

Sorry for the (very long) delay.

Summary: What caused Lily to loathe James and James to loathe Lily? How did they come to fall in love? What bumps and bruises did they acquire along the way? From hexing to comforting, this is the way it all started. Endure dangers and hardships, perplexity and mind games, and matters of the heart.
