hey guys! It has always been my dream to become an author, and that, paired with my love for Harry Potter books and the great stories I've read on here, I'm inspired to write my own.
Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE UPDATE
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 had suspicions, but now it is clear. beauty and the beast inspiration? well. i love the story, in any case
Summary: Romance for three couples when Blaise and Luna use Shakespearean styled matchmaking to hook up Ginny and Draco. There's Much Ado about...something!
Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance-Non Canon 2007, 2008, and 2009. In 2010 mods changed the rules (they got tired of the same fics being nominated ^_~) so no more QQ hopes, but that's okay. No proof is needed that Draco/Ginny = love.
* Written before the HBP, this tale presents an alternate sixth year in which Dumbledore lives, Draco is more than a foil to Harry, and Blaise Zabini is a girl. I hope readers who ship Draco/Ginny will enjoy the story which includes dancing with faeries, Celtic and Norse mythology, school holidays in London and Spain, and loads of fantasy and romance. "Is this a kissing book?" (to quote the Princess Bride) Yes, it is. *
(Warnings were added for safety, due to brief allusions in later chapters, not graphic content.)
OMG! u used a quote from wicked! wow oh wow, this just gets better and better
Author's Response: Thank you! Right now I'm doing nanowrimo, and having to remind myself that quotes are copyright infringement in original fiction. :D Yay for not having to worry about that in fanfics!
Summary: Hermione and Draco - an unlikely pair - go from intense dislike to true love in this story.
the ending of this was PRICELESS. I love Luna with all my heart, and great job on the story! it's nice to see a dramione fic ending happily, more often than not it's some level of sad.
Summary: Lily Evans remained shadowed and distant from the world she loved so dearly. Control was Michael's weakness; temptation hers. Yet, when James Potter enters her life, without so much as a warning or brief hesitation, Lily finds truth. For James Potter refused to give up on her.
wow this is an incredibly beautiful chapter. writing wise, i really like the way your style changed from lily and james: their story of love. it's much darker, which i like, and it's also very plot filled. also leaves me on a cliffhanger, i really want you to continue this one, please?
Summary: 2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
“I’ll always protect you.”
wow...this is one of my favorite AU lily/james stories. and i love what you did with sirius, most of the stories have him falling in love, but this is really more in character for him. i suspected he and emma would have a thing. anyway, GREAT story
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked how Sirius was portrayed.
wow....this is amazing writing. you have amazing literary talent. one of the better lily/james fics, most definitely
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it and think it one of the better Lily/James fics :)
i had a question: i was wondering why you made everything canon except for the fact that james plays seeker (and i think sirius was on the team...) just wondering why you changed that
awww please keep writing!!!
Summary: After his failed attempt on Dumbledore's life, Draco seeks refuge at the Order of the Phoenix. Sent back to Hogwarts with suspicious title of Head Boy, he is forced to share a dormitory with none other than Hermione Granger. But with war looming on the horizon and another danger even closer to home, their seventh year of Hogwarts is anything but ordinary.
A story of compelling intrigue, hidden motives, dangerous secrets, and obvious passion. Animagi, Quidditch, the Order of the Phoenix. Masquerades and riddles. Hate and love. Pleasure and pain. A blend of contradictions that, for two people, makes a truly unforgettable final year. Slow moving D/Hr with plenty of plot.
wow...that was powerful. i really hope you continue it, and i hope draco and hermione find some way to be together again, though i hope hermione doesn't forgive draco fully until maybe the end of the sequal. very nice writing
Author's Response: Thank you! Guess you'll just have to read to find out what happens! ;)
wow. please review...and fast!
Author's Response: Heh, I think you mean update. And I'll try! Thanks for reading!
Summary: “Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”
James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?
well i think peter pettigrew killed jilly, but i dont think they would figure it out if he did
Author's Response: I guess you'll have to keep reading and see :)
Summary: Jemzi Zabini is the seventeen year old daughter of Blaise Zabini and his wife Harper, and is about to join her fellow witches and wizards at Hogwarts for their final school year. Jemzi is famous for being the once best friend of Albus Potter. However, a mysterious argument last year that only the two of them were witness to has ruined their friendship and they are now practically enemies. No one knows the reason for their fall out, only that it has caused a great divide in their friendship group.
Jemzi's best friend and Albus' cousin, Rose, suspects that their friendship expired because of strange and unwanted feelings between them. Feelings which, despite their fall out, have not gone away. Feelings that are similar to those she has for a certain Slytherin...
So can the next generation of Hogwarts students learn to forget past actions and forgive?
Nominated for "Best Next Generation Story" and "Best Other Character" in the 2010 Quicksilver Quill Awards
This story features Harry Potter, Ginny Potter, Lily Potter, Luka Krum, Blaise Zabini, Harper Zabini, Zacharias Smith, Leon Holmwood, Tristan Wells, Rose Weasley, Scorpius Malfoy, Jemzi and Albus plus many more.
Hmm...I'm a little disappointed that we didn't get to see more of Ginny and Harry, just because I feel that they are a really underwritten couple on this fansite! I also feel that Harry would have wanted to be in the Hospital Wing with his son, or would have joined the confrontation in the previous chapter. Still, amazingly well-wrtten fic. I'm not big on next generation, but this one blew me away! The Tom Riddle was a bit unbelievable, but a very sweet addition, and I loved all the side stories that you developed. I wish you could have spent more time on them, even though it made sense, plotwise, for Al and Jemzi to take up most of the first half. And now, after my incredibly long review and feedback which means nothing since you've already finished the story...I really loved this fic.
Summary: James Potter is Head Boy and Gryffindor Quidditch captain in his seventh year at Hogwarts. He has three best friends and his life seems perfect--except that Lily Evans, the only girl he's ever loved, can't stand him.
Lily Evans is Head Girl and top of their class. She's always been disgusted by James' arrogance, yet she can't seem to stop blushing when he's around.
As their Head Boy and Girl duties bring them together, can James find a way to win Lily's love?
A Different Kind of Magic has been nominated for the 2011 Quicksilver Quills: Best Canon Romance. Thank you!
I've temporarily changed the rating to 3rd-5th years due to site glitches. I don't think there is anything graphic in the story thus far, but please read at your discretion anyway.
PLEASE update soon.
I think you really got the emotion spot on in this chapter, especially at the end. The relationship with James and his mother is so sweet!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I was trying to make it clear that he really loves his mother without it being too sappy, so I'm glad you liked that part. Chapter 12 is done, but needs some tweaking. I'll update as soon as I can! :)
Summary: The sequel to “Trickster”: The Marauders return to Hogwarts for their seventh and final year. Lily and James juggle more responsibility than ever, and James learns that convincing Lily to go on an actual date with him is harder than he would have imagined. Remus frets about post-Hogwarts life while Peter drifts even further from his friends. But when Sirius discovers a group of fourth-years who are bound and determined to steal the Marauders’ title of Greatest Hogwarts Troublemakers he wages war, rallying his friends so they can maintain their legacy. Meanwhile, outside the castle grounds, Voldemort is gathering supporters in unending preparation for a much darker battle…
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

Not fair!!! PLEASE update quickly, this is one of my favorite Marauder fics! You have all the characters spot on, and the storyline is well-developed and it feels very canon to me.
But back to that cliffhanger....
Author's Response: haha i knowww i'm sorry...my internet connection's a little fuzzy for the next week or so, but i'm hard at work on it, and it should be going up by the end of the week!
