I'm a Miss, no Mrs, that has always loved to write but never had the courage to do so. Muggle Net Fan Fiction gave me a bit of courage to finally actually write something. So please let me know what you think so my stories can grow.
My real name is Martine. I'm a 23 year old Cultural Studies student from the Netherlands. I hope to graduate soon but at the moment all I do is read and write fanfiction.
Besides reading and writing anything that has to do with the world of HP (believe me when I say that I don't shut up about it until you have at least read the books) I also love reading other stuff. Anything from SF like Dune (classic) to the Great Tragedies of Shakespeare (even more classics). From Kama Sutra (the original Indian texts) to Western fiction on Chinese women (hopefully the subject of my final thesis).
But I also have to breath in some fresh air now and again so twice a week I get up and go out to climb. Well actually I climb inside but whenever the weather allows you can find me hanging on the rocks. To top this love for climbing of I will also be on the board of the climbing association here in Maastricht for the next year.
Other than that it is movies, music, travelling, swimming, hanging out with friends, my boyfriend or family (not necessarily in that order) that keeps me going.
The stories that keep me going until HBP comes out, are mostly about Severus Snape. In the books my favorite character is Hermione (I simply adore intelligent people) but Alan Rickman has always been one of my favorite actors. And well Alan simply plays the ultimate Severus for me. I can't help it, that man simply oozes blackness and bad boy and the only thing I want to do is drown in it.
This doesn't mean I can't enjoy other stories, though I do tend to stick to the romance. I will also leave you a review, when I read something of yours and hopefully you will one when you read something of mine.
At the moment I only have one story online. A little fluff thing about Hermione and Snape (did you see that one coming?) I'm also writing a story about Draco and Hermione which is more angsty but has the potential to become a ship. Not sure on that one yet, but I'll probably start putting it online soon.
Well I hope you like what you read and maybe we will see eachother in our reviews.
Summary: Hermione has lost the most important people in her life because of the war. She makes a wish and a certain Potions master is the only one who can grant it. This fic is about a student/teacher relationship. If this bothers you, don't read.
It's almost painful and sad to see two people who love each other so much, keep their distance. It almost makes me ache with longing. Hopefully the next chapter will be a bit more cheerful.
Summary: This story has been posted on several sites dedicated to the pairing of Hermione and Severus Snape. She is 22 in this story, and there was no relationship between the two while she was a student. If this pairing bothers you, please don't read.
I absolutely love all your stories. It's an old dream of mine to write and this story and Lestrange Days gave the final nudge to actually write something. Hopefully they will accept my first chapter. Thanks and keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad I was able to have some part in giving you the final push to get your work submitted. I have fun writing and I'm happy when I know people enjoy what I've written. Good luck with your story.
Summary: Hermione and Snape's respective cures for writer's block turn out better than expected. HG/SS, End of 7th year. Response to the WIKTT writer's block challenge. COMPLETE
I wish I had writer's block like that....Ah what I wouldn't give for a summer of in depth potions with Severus, even if it is only in my dreams...
I completely agree with Harryluver, nothing more to add. Well maybe, please let Hermione fall for Draco soon........
Summary: Hermione is abused both mentally and physically by those that should love her the most to the point that she can't take it. During her first week of Hogwarts she is haunted by nightmares of her home. She decides to use the time turner to make a difference in her life. Though there is an accident and she ends up farther than she expected. In the time of the marauders. When she finds a life she loves, will she go back? HGRL pairing
I never thought of a Hermione/Remus ship before, but you make it work. It sounds good but be careful not to mess with the future too much, we still need Peter as the Secret-Keeper
Author's Response: Thank You ^_^
Summary: He was on her mind constantly. A vampire sucking on her sanity. She was still drawn to him, so drawn that she couldn't think of anything else but him. Thus when he asks her a question, asks for her consent, she can't refuse... and must succumb to her... Dracula.
SSxHG -- one shot--Pre-HBP
Almost all women would fall for Dracula and we know his love for a certain female. Dracula and Snape, the perfect combination. Although unfortunately Gary Oldman always seems to come to my mind and Sirius is no Snape.
Don't read if you are offended with rape and abuse. Contains events that will be quite offensive and possibly "disgusting". You have been warned.
Runner Up in the Dangerous Liaisons Awards and He Had It Coming Awards.
~The story is now Complete!~
Thanks for reading!
Guilt is a very powerful emotion, but most people forget that guilt goes two ways. Relationships can occur because of it and you make it realistic enough.
Any story that makes me smile is a good story, and this one does me make me smile. I love it when Severus becomes confused because of a woman, it is nice to see he has a heart and a life afterall.
Author's Response: I've please to hear that. I really think that Severus has no clue about love. This is a bit of a learning curve for him. Thanks for the review!
Summary: Sequel to "The Long Wait." It's been thirteen years. The kids are in school, Severus and Hermione are teaching, and all is good, or so they believe.
I've noticed that your own work becomes a bit like your child, it is hard to see her grow up and go out into the world. I loved it even with Snape getting all mushy.
Author's Response: You've got that so right. It was hard for me to finish this because I really didn't want to. Of course the story was wirtten out so it had to end. Some people don't like Snape OOC, but I think the moment called for some major feelings. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Summary: ONE SHOT. COMPLETE. Hermione reflects on the one who left her standing in the pouring rain aching for him.
They were never meant to be.
"Then why does it feel so right?" a voice asked inside her head.
Yes we all guessed, even the ending, it was good.
Summary: (COMPLETE-- FINAL CHAPTER UP!!!) One day, everything changes. All it takes is for Harry to wake up, go through his daily routine, and bump into an unexpected person from his past... who tells him all the lies his friends and lover have been keeping from him. What then does Harry do--but try to live life as best he can?
there is no choice at the end, not a definite one. I wonder how soon Severus will fully love him again.
The first time to read about such a ship, but it made me smile. You keep up the depression for Harry, just like JKR, but i'm sure you will lighten up his day in the end.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Summary: A two chapter little story, I wrote just for fun.
I keep reading this story, everytime I'm in need of some Snape love making. Oh and Thank you. I told you earlier that you gave me that little nudge I needed to start writing and now my first two chapters are online.
It makes me smile, like any other Hermione/Snape ship would. I'm addicted to them and especially their love-making. Their is absolutely nothing better than a man giving you what you need.
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed this. I myself can't get enough of the pairing.
Summary: A one-shot. Voldemort has been defeated, but the trappings of war are not easily discarded. Snape will not find it as simple as he imagined to abandon his other half.
The perfect title for this perfect little story. It makes me kinda sad but smile at the same time. I simply adore Severus, and I want him to be happy.
Summary: In the years following Voldemort's victory in the second war, Muggle-borns must become slaves and servants to pure-bloods in order to survive. Over time, Hermione Granger has learned to suppress her pride and independence in households where she is considered lower than dirt. She thought she would be prepared for this new family, just like she was for all the previous ones. What she didn't know was that this new family was none other than Draco Malfoy's. Will she manage hold up when she finds herself struggling to withhold her sharp tongue, returning hatred, and...something else?
The last chapter of this story has been posted! Thanks for reading :)
Thank you to everyone who voted "The Sweetest Sin" as the Best Tearjerker in round 4 of the Dramione Awards!
Thanks to some of my amazing readers, The Sweetest Sin has been/is being translated into seven languages: French, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Czech, Latvian, and Chinese. If you would like the links to any of the translations, please e-mail me or leave a review :)
I hate the position Hermione is in, but I feel so sorry for Draco and Pansy as well. Please continue.
Now this could be very interesting, well actually it already is. Snape being in love and proud as always, I wonder when he will crumble.
Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, a blond Weasley. It's Harry's sixth year. Voldemort is back, yet strangely quiet. A second prophecy. This is my version of what happens next. The whole book is written, along with all of year seven. I will post as fast as I can get the chapters past the moderators.
Story is now complete. Look for the sequel, I will be posting the first chapter tonight 6-2-05, and it usually takes 4-5 days for the mods to approve it. The title of the sequel is, Harry Potter and the Unlocked Mind.
I've read till chapter 10, but it makes me smile, so i will read the rest and look out for other stuff you did. (This is a compliment by the way because normally i only read HG/DM or HG/SS)
Author's Response: I'm glad I got you to brach out. The pairings you like are Hermione/Draco or Hermione/Snape? I hope you are not to dissapointed in book six and seven from JKR then. I guess each to his/her own though. You should check out Secret Friends, by Harriet Evans. Ginny/Sirius. It might be up your alley. Thanks for reading, and I hope you like the rest of this.
It is different to see that for once Draco has amnesia instead of Hermione. It has potential, a lot of potential. Keep up!
