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 update? =( i really want to know the ending...
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?

ahhh i wish there was a happy ending, but brilliant story nonetheless. it's too bad hermione never shared those stuff with draco; she might have had less regrets then. still, good story. you're making me love draco (after reading this and ATW) although i used to hate his guts. that truly counts for something ;)
great job and i hope to read a happy dramione fic from you soon! =D
Summary: Hermione watches over Draco as he sleeps. His is a tortured soul and although she desperately wants to save him from his pain, she knows that only he can free himself.
Based on the song "Beautiful Disaster" by Kelly Clarkson.
deep. very deep. i like =) i was singing the song while reading this fanfiction, and i feel it fits nicely. i particularly like that last part where hermione muses to herself- the part where she says she will laugh at herself for having feelings for the one she is supposed to hate. that was sheer awesomeness.
though, how did Hermione ever get a chance to see Draco sleeping, or gasp! - bathing?
Summary: For the rest of the Ministry, the interdepartmental challenge was merely a failed attempt to restore trust between workers. But for Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger, it was the catalyst for an unexpected relationship built on passionate letters, concealed identities, and secret meetings – and the beginning of an end that neither of them could ever have imagined possible, not even in their wildest dreams.
Post-war. Based somewhat on the story of the Phantom of the Opera. Also contains R/Hr, so don't read if you can't stomach that ship.
Status: Complete. Thanks for reading, everyone!
I would actually love to see Draco and Hermione end up together (and Ron agreeing somehow to it) but I think this ending fits better than the other ending. The anguish was well, anguish, and was written superbly. It was really unfortunate that Draco snapped though =( If he had more control; if he didn't snap, I think Hermione would've chosen him instead. The ending is sad; I wonder if Greyback killed Ron and Hermione. I sure hope it wasn't Draco's work when he lost his consciousness >.<
Awesome story nonetheless. A very good read. You've totally diverted me from my studies =p *thumbs up*
Summary: It all started when he stared at her... And she stared back. Slight OOC. One-shot
very nice. can you write one where they end up with each other instead of walking away in the end please? =D
Summary: Draco and Hermione share a moment of understanding in their 5th year at Hogwarts. Two years later, Draco needs to tell Hermione a secret that only she will understand.
This is a one-shot deal. :) Please read and review!
i like your story =) you made it pretty realistic, although Hermione and Draco are a little OOC. if Draco was a little more demanding, and Hermione more reluctant with the kiss, it would've been totally in character i think. it's not very in hermione's character (the goody goody) to kiss another guy so willingly when she has a boyfriend: she's pretty darn moral. neither did i think she would suggest ron dying (it almost sounded like she suggested that draco killed him 0.o !!!) besides this two little things, it's perfect. i like this so much. awesome story for dramione. like like like like. write more, okay! =D
Author's Response: Thank you for the lengthy review! It's appreciated on my part. I do agree, H/DR is OOC, but i got intrigued when i wrote it, because an image popped in my head and i had to write it down. I'm not a huge fan of H/Dr, to be honest, but like i said, I got an image in my head and the rest is history. It's been a while since i wrote that story, so i might have changed it up now. It's a smaller story line, and i like it. Anyway... Thanks so much! I have tons of unfinished stories, and one day i'll post them all. :) Cheers! :)
Summary: Everyone knew he hated her... What they didn't know, is that he hated her because he could never have her...
This is a ONE SHOT...
Summary: Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy have been together for years: as classmates, as enemies, and, finally, as lovers. But when they are betrayed for a petty grudge, they find themselves in the presence of Lord Voldemort when all they have is a ring, a song, and each other.
awesome story. it felt a little off when hermione referred to herself as a "mudblood", but i totally love how you justify that with draco saying that "there's no mudblood". awesomeness to the highest degree. it would be more effective to the story - to elucidate on how willingly draco (a pureblood maniac) turned to the good side - if you made lucius die in the hands of voldemort (voldemort is a heartless dude who kills his own followers after all =.=") but beyond that, excellent story. write more! =D
Summary: Hermione and Draco - an unlikely pair - go from intense dislike to true love in this story.
Yes! I guessed Ravenclaw correctly! =D Alex did, after all, inherited a double dose of intelligence? ^^
Good story! I like it very much, although Draco changed a little too fast for it to be 100% realistic. Nonetheless, I always do love happy endings =)
Summary: He with the power to defeat the Dark Lord does not. Harry Potter is dead. Fifty years later, both Muggle and magical worlds belong to darkness. All serve Lord Voldemort. But even in the grimmest of times, idealists are born. Without a prophesy to direct them, a rebellion will rise. Follow Lottie Rowe as she finds her way into the center of the rebellion and the heart of the war.

that was the most perfect ending *sniff*
Author's Response: Wow that was quick! Thanks so much. =) I liked it too.
Thanks for the review!Eponine
i did not expect voldie's manner of death - who would've thought that his tiny bit of remorse would torture and kill him more efficiently than avada kedavra? awesome.
it makes me sad how unfeeling lottie has become though. i know colm has done great harm, but he was sobbing over lottie's death moments before she kills him. i know that lottie can't do her job properly if she feels too much, but it seems sad anyway.
a bittersweet chapter, but i'll admit that this ending is very fitting. good job~!
Author's Response: I agree--it really is tragic what Lottie has become in order to get this job done. At this point, she's almost as unfeeling as Voldemort was.
Thanks for the review!Eponine
Summary: It's seven years after The War and Hermione Granger, the last whole member of the Golden Trio, is making her way through life as best she can. Then, a visitor from her past arrives, setting into motion a chain of events that would bring her closer to a man she never expected and a horror she had already experienced.
Through time and will-power, Hermione forced herself to forget the painful memories of her past. Could one man make her want to remember?
you're an awesome writer. with this, i have officially finished reading all the stories you've written (so far) and i hope to read more! =D
and btw, i totally love how Hermione disproved Pansy's ideas. *thumbs up*
Author's Response: Haha, wow! Nicely done! There are quite a few of them, and some are pretty lengthy! I'm glad you like them. I look forward to your reviews!! Thanks!!
Summary: One-shot fanfiction
A Masquerade Ball has been arranged in the Golden Trio’s seventh year at Hogwarts and everyone is bursting with excitement. That is, everyone except Draco Malfoy who definitely does not expect to find the love of his life with whom he’s supposed to spend the rest of his measly life at this uninventive and unoriginal ball.
An epic romance. Will love conquer all? Is it true that opposites attract? And who are these opposites doomed to be? Why does Draco feel the need to clench and unclench it buttocks repeatedly? Is he ill? Or is he just wishing for this fanfiction to end? Read and find out …in this prodigious, celestial, sumptuous, epic romance in which love will prove... Oh, God, I can’t even write this heinous summary. Just read the *loud beeping sound* fic.
Need I warn you that this story is OOC?
Oh, all right, fine: Warning: OOCness
9th story in a series of Hermione/Draco one-shots (Check out my author page for more information)
Important announcement in my profile
I enjoyed this story very much. =D
Summary: “What people don’t realize is that Sirius Black is a false name...the man people believe to be Sirius Black is actually Stubby Boardman...
Kingsley Shacklebolt is sent to question Stubby Boardman, a former pop singer who has lost his luster. A simple task? So it would seem...
absolutely awesome. i definitely did not expect the part where kingsley confesses to be the turnip thrower! what was he doing in a concert with a turnip anyway? *laughs*
stubby reminds me a bit of lockhart actually. and i enjoy kingsley's character to the end. two thumbs up! =D
Summary: Written for the Slytherin In-House Banner Challenge
Mysterious glances, slow dances, confusion at the face of old enemies. After a row with Ron, Hermione figured that the wedding of her best friend wouldn't be much to think about. But instead, she finds herself still as death, dancing in deception, and trying to figure out her dancing partner's Illusive Ambitions.
awesome. i really like this story a lot! =D can you continue it please? it's so goood!
Summary: Lucius Malfoy is about to go on trial for his crimes as a Death Eater. There is only one person he trusts to represent him. Will she be able to put aside her emotions and help a man who was once a large part of her life?

Chrysantia is one awesome lawyer. I love this story, though I highly doubt that Lucius never killed anyone =p Good job nonetheless!
Author's Response: Hey, we don't know for sure that he killed anyone... Thanks for the review.
Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant. Nominated for a 2008 QSQ for best Post-Hogwarts story.
The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?
Thank you for the story! It's awesome! I nearly cried reading the part when Alduin and Myrtle found peace, and I really love the parts where you brought in Muggle stuff and Hermione's SPEW! I only regret Hermione did not pop up in the end to tell Teddy what a wonderful job he did with a new SPEW chapter in Hogwarts ;)
I await your sequel! ^^
Summary: Vincent Crabbe has just died. How strange it is to watch the people he knew fighting a battle for something he didn't care about. And how utterly dull. But oh, such was death.
Random one-shot. Please enjoy!
very good. i can totally image crabbe doing that, and his confusion as to why harry was not in the rafters as well was priceless. awesome writing! =D
Author's Response: Thank you!! This was very different for me to write, and I'm glad it's gotten such a positive response!
Summary: Lily Potter’s love and sacrifice for her son is legend. But there was another member of the Potter family. James Potter was more than an arrogant toerag who finally grew up, more than a Marauder, more than a member of the Order of the Phoenix. He was a father.
How on earth would a man like James Potter handle that responsibility, at the tender age of twenty, especially at a time when his world was crumbling all around him?
"When had he fallen so hopelessly in love with this tufty-haired little boy? "
that is the best line in this fic. i find your portrayal of james realistic, and his love for harry simply awwwww-inducing. like others, i thought that it would end with voldemort blasting open the door (actually i was anticipating it since halfway through the story lol). but i like your ending so much better.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you littlewolf! And yayyy...that is my favorite part of the story, too. :*) I'm glad you like my ending. It was meant to be a very bittersweet story, and having Voldemort show up would have been too horrible, ruining the sweetness. Knowing he was going to made it sad enough, for me anyway. :'( I just wanted to leave it with the love, not the actual loss. *sniffle* Thank you for reading and reviewing. :)
Winner of the 2008 Quick Silver Quills Award for Best General Story.
The first book in the Alexandra Quick series.
The war against Voldemort never reached America, but all is not well there. When 11-year-old Alexandra Quick learns she is a witch, she is plunged into a world of prejudices, intrigue, and danger. Who wants Alexandra dead, and why?
This story is canon-compliant with the Harry Potter universe, but the characters and settings are all original. I've put a lot of work into envisioning a world as detailed as the original series; I hope you enjoy it.
darn, these Charmbridge people sound like modern day teachers so much! "Focus on things that will be tested on SPAWN."
and I really really like Hogwarts much more than Charmbridge. the people are so full of prejudices. and so intent on getting everyone to conform to their culture! but that's almost how it works in USA, so it fits the location so well.
i like your writing nonetheless =)
