I am completely obsessed with Harry Potter.
Right now, I am working on two chaptered fics-

The Marauder's Map to a Gryffindor's Heart:
I started this a while ago, so it really isn't the best piece of writing... but I do like the story, so I will probably continue. Ten chapters have been written (from about three years ago) so I hope to edit them and hopefully get them on this site! This one basically follows the Marauders through their years at school. Don't expect much character development, since I wrote this when I was about twelve. At least until I get past the first ten chapters :P
Then there's a one-shot!
The Sorting Hat Put Me in Slytherin:
This one shows what might have happened if Harry had become friends with Malfoy... *shutters* It has a lot more to do with Harry's character and all that deep stuff. Enjoy :D
1. A second Generation story about Lily Luna Potter's Hogwarts experience and her unexpected friend, Scorpius Malfoy.
2. A tale about Dobby's life
3. A fic about Merope Gaunt and how she fell in love with Tom Riddle
4. A story about Seamus' mother and how she grew up in a muggle home as an adopted servant girl and after going to Hogwarts, falls in love with a Muggle
I always love getting reviews! (but then again, don't we all?) Well, I think that's all I have to say!
Summary: It is June 1976 and The Marauders are at the top of their game. From the outside they look to have everything.But appearances, as the saying goes, can be deceptive.
James is discovering that not everything in life is his for the taking. Sirius knows he will have to defy his formidable family. Remus lives in constant fear of his life beyond Hogwarts. As for Peter... Well, Peter is struggling to live up to his friends.
The ties of friendship are strong, but war is raging and with a dark power rising those ties will inevitably fray.
Added to the mix is an adversary called Severus Snape, some lost House Points, a prank or two and a whole lot of Lily.
This is a Marauder tale.
This is a story of what made them special.
This is a story of why it started to go wrong for The Lions of Gryffindor.
OH MY GOOD GODRIC! Lions of Gryffindor won the 2009 QSQ for Best Marauders' Era Story. Amazed and incredibly grateful to those who nominated, judged and have beta'd this fic. THANK YOU.
Trick or Treat!
3. She clicks on her mouse and swipes her wand;
Some stories go up, and some stories are gone.
Stories of her own? Why, she has plenty!
Fewer than one-hundred, but far more than twenty.
That's all I can say, now. Great chapter- please try to update soon!
Author's Response: I shall try, but Lavender and Blaise are more urgent at the moment. Thanks for the review. ~Carole~
YAYAYAYAY! im so glad that you updated! i love this fic and poor Phyll! :( I hope that she gets better! The snape part was interesting and i think it was funny when james said: “Girls, eh?” i lauged out loud! plz update again soon!!

Author's Response: Aww, don't judge Rich yet. He may just surprise you. Thanks for the review. Carole xxx
Summary: Nymphadora Tonks lives under a shadow. Both her cousin and her aunt are in Azkaban believed to be in league with Voldemort. She knows Bellatrix deserves to be there- but Sirius?
Remus Lupin is an outsider. He’d once had three good friends- now two are dead and the third has been locked up for murder and betrayal.
They had met once before, when she was a child, but as Tonks grows up they find themselves thrown together- far too closely for Remus’ comfort. He’s always yearned for a normal life but knows that is impossible. Can Tonks convince him that he deserves happiness?
Nominated for a 2009 QSQ award in the Best canon Romance category. Thank you.

Summary: Albus Potter is lost: guilt and grief have driven him to a desperate search for the Deathly Hallows, and Harry must confront his son before it is too late. Their confrontation, however, ends in disaster as Albus disappears with two of the Hallows.
As he continues his search for the Resurrection Stone, Albus remembers the shadowy road that lead him to his confrontation with his father – and must face both his brother and the tragic loss that has driven him so far down dark paths.
Albus must journey deep within to conquer the darkness that surrounds him. Will he find what he seeks? Or will Albus be lost to his loved ones forever? This story is now complete.

I feel horrible for him but another part of me wants 2 punch him in the nose and tell him 2 not go crazy! thats harsh but i feel its necesary... anyhu you r a gr8 riter and im lookin forward 2 the rest of this fic!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I'm glad you like it so far. Don't get too upset with Albus, he's been through a lot, after all. Thanks for reading this story, I am working on the next chapter so I hope you continue to enjoy it! ~Giina :)
Summary: Nearly every witch and wizard in the magical community suffered in the aftermath of the Great Battle of Hogwarts, including Draco Malfoy. He’s no longer the cocky, arrogant, slick-haired Prince of Slytherin, but a haunted, vulnerable young man. Finally free of his father and the Dark Lord’s clutches, he revels in his new found independence. The wizarding society is broken and rebuilding, and Draco returns to Hogwarts to repeat his seventh year. Newly appointed as Head-Boy, it seems Draco has changed. But has he changed enough to accept Hermione Granger as Head-Girl?
Chapter Seven is up! Leave a review :D

Author's Response: Don't worry - he won't be skipping around Hogwarts holding Hermione's hand anyday soon! Thanks for all the reviews :D
Summary: With Ron's constant snogging of his new girlfriend, Lavender, Hermione is never around. Yes, she was jealous of Lavender and upset with Ron, but what was she doing all this time? The rise of Voldemort, constant pressure in school, and her love for Ron are clear issues in her life, but what if Hermione was struggling with other problems—problems no one else, save one, knew about? What if, while in love with Ron, she found herself falling in love with someone else—someone none of her friends, nor herself, would ever have expected? This is the bittersweet tale of the love that blossomed between Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy during their 6th year at Hogwarts and beyond.
**UPDATE:** I am sorry for taking such a long break. I am now rewriting the story from a third person perspective because I just feel it is my stronger style and I feel I could not describe things the way I wanted to simply from Hermione's eyes, especially because she could not know Draco's thoughts, which I would like to include. I hope to finish the new Prologue in a few days and hopefully it will be validated quickly. I will probably just delete the current chapters as soon as the new version is accepted. Please continue to review and let me know what your opinion of the new version is. Again, I am so sorry. Future updates will be announced on my livejournal account so please follow there and comment. Thank you for any fans left out there who believe in my story. I am also looking for a beta to please look over my chapters before I submit them. Send me a message on the forum (username: redcastle) or on livejournal (username: cherryredcastle) if you are interested.
ooooo! I really liked it! Keep going and update soon please!!! I think its really interesting and i cant wait 2 c what happens! is this dh compatable? I hope not... I dont really like ron in fan fics but this is hrm/dr so yay! thanks for the fic!
It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

i really like the story so far! Well done and keep writing!!! Im a new member and i trying to start a post hogwarts fanfic too! i was trying 2 do a scorpius/lily fic. Do u think its ok if i change scorpius' age? I would love it if u could give me some tips cuz i think u are an incredable author! thnx!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you like the story! I've written Draco/Ginny so I couldn't write Scorpius/Lily (too squicky for me, lol) but there's no reason you shouldn't. I would think twice about changing Scorpius' age. In canon he's two years older than Lily, and I think readers would go for a hook up between a seventh year and a fifth year over Scorpius becoming two years younger. Changing canon makes a story AU, and that can turn off some readers. Not that you can't do it anyway, :D, but I can't help wanting stories to appeal to the widest audience possible. Good luck with your story and thank you so much!
Thank you so much for the tips! ill consider the 5th year and 7th year thing :)! i kno wut u mean w/ AU they can b pretty out thr! thnx again i appreci8 it!
I've written AU stories (although if Jo hadn't come out with that family tree my George/Alicia would have been canon compliant, lol) and always tried to stay as true to canon as possible, so I'm not against AU as much as for not putting off prospective readers if possible. :D Keep writing and good luck!
btw i LOVE the les mis part i am a huge fan!!! its a gr8 book!
Great books make you want to write your own stories, don't they? Thank you for having impeccable taste. :D
Summary: Have you ever wondered why Gryffindor, despite having the great Charlie Weasley as Seeker, never seemed to win the House or Quidditch Cup? Perhaps he was distracted?
This is the story of Charlie's last game in the his fifth year. All Gryffindor need to do is beat Hufflepuff and then the Cup is theirs - but Hufflepuff have a new Seeker and Charlie can't stop thinking about flowers.
This is a Charlie/OC pairing and has been written as a present for someone.
Warning - Unashamed fluff! I am not JK Rowling, but I doubt that surprises you.
omg that was such a sweet story! I really luved it! i thought it was creative how u added tonks into it! Ur a great writer keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Tonks and Charlie are in another fic of mine (they were at Hogwarts at the same time) so I couldn't not include her. *smiles* Carole xxx
Summary: In the year 2005, a great battle took place at Hogwarts, one that ended in tragedy. Harry Potter was struck down by a victorious Voldemort. The Order of the Phoenix lost half its numbers. Ginny Potter was taken by a Dementor, leaving her daughter Lily in the care of Ron and Hermione.
The remnants of the Order were forced to flee Britain, doomed to spend the rest of their lives fighting for survival as the Death Eaters prepared to launch their assault upon the rest of Europe. And for sixteen years, Lily was hidden at the secret island Goblynsrefuge, the base of a second resistance group which in previous years had allied itself with the Order.
But all that changed after Voldemort learned of Lily’s existence.
A mysterious talisman, a traitor in the Order, and the appearance of a completely indestructible entity of whom the Death Eaters are terrified, all will build up to a dreadful cataclysm, one which, no matter which side is victorious, will inevitably result in the permanent destruction of the Wizarding World.
interesting! im a little confuzzed by wuts going on... but i gess i will hav 2 wait and see! keep going!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like what you've read so far! I'm submitted the next chapter, which hopefully will be validated soon, so you don't have long to wait.
Summary: After the disastrous events of the end of the Marauder's fifth year, a fuming Lily Evans decides that that arrogant James Potter and his friends need a taste of their own medicine. The straight-laced Prefect suddenly finds herself pranking her class's trickiest boys--and maybe even enjoying it. Coupled with a series of mysterious apology letters that Lily has begun receiving, it's bound to be an interesting year.
Winner of the 2010 QSQ for Best Canon Romance!
