Bio:
I am in college, American, and in love with God. I enjoy reading, writing, music (playing, singing, listening), my friends and family.

I am a compulsive editor. This means that while new chapters may come infrequently (translation: I write slowly), the older chapters are always under revision. Check back now and again to read the new and improved versions! Also, I've been working on Britishisms, but as an American, my knowledge is limited. Please, feel free to (gently) Britpick.

I also write a lot of drabbles, which you can find by following that link to my website, along with some poetry and original fiction.

At The Ceili: This is a Christmas gift for Cinderella Angelina, a beloved fellow SPEW member. The title comes from the song it is based on, performed by the very excellent group Celtic Woman. Enjoy, Leslie!

Gold: This was originally the third chapter of In His Own Right, but I felt that it really didn’t fit with the others, so now it is a sequel.

Hide and Seek: This slightly lengthy one-shot deals with the choice between good and evil. It’s under Romance only because it didn’t fit in any of the General categories.

Home To Stay: Based on and set around a song by Josh Groban (same title), Hermione goes travelling Europe, trying to find what she’s lost during the War. Ron waits for her, living for the short notes that she sends to Ginny, waiting for the day when Hermione will be ready to come home for good.

In His Own Right: It was after writing my SPEW 007 challenge (seven prompts, one character) that I really came to appreciate Neville. He’s been through a lot, but he is strong and capable—he just needs a chance to show it. (It has a sequel in Gold.)

Left, Right, and Centre: This began as an attempt to understand why the relationship between Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour seems to work, though no one else understands why. The reason? Fleur isn’t the idiot everyone thinks she is.

Love Is Not a Simple Thing: For now, this is a one-shot (its continuation is unlikely, and depends on the revival of a long-dormant plot bunny). It is a Remus/Hermione romance, but features no time travel. Instead, the setup comes during Hermione’s school years. Following chapters (if they appear) will follow their growing relationship during the war and post-war years.

So She Dances: One of my personal favourites. It's based on the Josh Groban song of the same name, and is a Neville/Ginny missing moment from GoF. It was the first atmosphere-based piece I wrote, and it came out quite nicely.

The Unknown: Also Neville-based, I consider this the best thing I have yet written. It's a little darker, but very real, with hope at its end.

Transformations: This is a Remus/Tonks, my first—and most ambitious—project. It began back in August 2005 and has been heavily rewritten and edited in preparation for the long-awaited finish. It will be around 11 or 12 chapters when finished

Waiting: This is a post-HBP one-shot, now AU. It was written for the S.P.E.W. Anniversary Challenge: Friends discussing changes since the one-year anniversary of an event (in this case, the death of Dumbledore).

I like this a lot. Sounds a lot some of the R/Hr stories I've seen lately. Not too farfetched to think their stories similar though.

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.

Through the Fire by Croyez
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 250]

Summary: It all starts out with a meeting. Little do Harry and Hermione know what problems and dilemmas will surface along with their secret relationship. Hearts are shattered, prophecies are spoken, disappearances occur, dark plans are schemed, and discoveries beyond their understanding are made. Can their relationship withstand the perils it is subject to? Will their fate and worries stand in the way of true love? They can only hope not…



The air was suddenly filled with Hermione’s screams. They reverberated off the walls, echoed in the space…in Harry’s head…he felt as if he were sharing her pain, as if he were the one under the curse. He couldn’t take it. He couldn’t see her in such pain, maybe even wishing, like he had earlier, to die…for it to end…

He didn’t notice it when his hand began loosening its grip on the edge. He didn’t notice it until he began to fall to the ground, but as soon as he did, he pointed his wand at Voldemort. He felt seventeen years of suffering, seventeen years of mystery and trials…he felt hatred like he had never experienced before, pouring out of him. He felt every single thing that had happened to him on Voldemort’s account, rising to the surface, almost drowning him in a mix of emotions.

And then, he yelled, with all his might, “Avada Kedavra!”

He wished for it all to end…for it to be over…



The Last Chapter (Twenty) is up on [July/12] Thank you so much, Stephanie!


H/Hr, and Book 1-5!Hermione! will only sink when there are none loyal to them. So there.

This is interesting. Caitlyn pointed out that Trelawny is a bit different -- I thought her letter was much more coherent than I'd expect from her normally! -- but you've done an excellent job at keeping them in-character. I don't know if I'd consider Ron a candidate for murder or suicide, but then I never figured he'd lose Hermione :-P. Going to read the rest now!

Wow. I love this. You’ve captured the dynamic between them so well.

Sirius said it, when he risked life and limb – and detention – hiding behind bushes and jumping nervously at the darting shadows, just to find out how to get into the tunnel beneath the Whomping Willow. I love the humor there.

Characterization is excellent. You gave Sirius his moments in the wind: It gave him a feeling of power, of hope, and of indefinable, all-pervading peace. And there he remembered that it was for Remus, all of it, and went about his work with a little more vigour, a little more happiness. You gave Peter the frustration of not being very good, but wanting so badly to accomplish this. And James can be hardworking when he wants to. Very very nice.

 

Summary: A rather dark SS/HG ff that will only be two chapters ... The first chapter isn't that bad, but then the second one will be worse ... set in the gang's seventh year, post-Last Battle. My first fic on here, please review, even if you don't like it ... I like getting criticisms ...
