Well hello... I'm Kylie, aka, DarkSunflower. :) To those of you wondering about my penname, there's a reason for it; it's a bit of an oxymoron that describes my personality. I can be dark, "mysterious", anti-social, quiet, and pessimistic, but I'm also very outgoing, social, bubbly, optimistic, and... well, I think you understand the point. So, DarkSunflower; that's me! :)
Anyway, I'm 17 years old, American with all-European roots, and obviously, I'm an intense Harry Potter fan (although I just jumped on the bandwagon in June of 2010). I'm a proud Hufflepuff (as any of my friends would tell you), and I embrace that with all of my heart!
I'm an immensely huge Dramione fanatic. Honestly, it's not even funny... Kind of pathetic, really. But, although I'd never admit it to my friends, I'm basically a sucker for almost any romance story. But not the overly-mushy-gushy ones. But boy, how embarrassing... Hahah!
My first and only completed fic as of yet, The End of Her World, is currently up (if you haven't read it, please do!), but I currently have two other stories in the works. At the moment I'm trying to focus on my first Dramione fic, Painted Fire. Chapter two is currently up and chapter three is now in the works, though taking longer than expected. Hopefully soon my new one-shot Eclectic Harmony about the four founders of Hogwarts will be finished, so keep watch. :)
Well, that's about all I've got to say! Until next time, my fellow fan-fic readers!
This Christmas season, Hermione isn't fussed with gifts or wrapping paper. A drunken snog has forced her to rethink her feelings for Draco as she makes the ultimate decision between her mind and her heart.
Aww, this is so great. :)
It's simple, it's cute, it's a little sad, and it's romantic-y.
I like it!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it :) xx Ariana
Summary: Hermione and Lavender weren't particular friends. It was true they shared a dormitory, but for much of their school time they lived parallel and separate lives. Then Lavender helped Hermione get ready for the Yule Ball and that set off a chain of events that left both girls confused.
This story was inspired by a suggestion from Gina (Gmariam) and a drabble written for Natalie (hestiajones). This story is in no way 'caron -compliant' with Lavender, blue - a Gryffindor true.
Thank you Natalie for beta'ing this story.

Bahahah! Ahh, this would be an interesting way to explain how things went down. Very funny, I must admit... I quite enjoyed this, although this wasn't exactly my favorite... pairing. Well written, though. Very nice. :)
Summary: Sometimes the snow comes down in June, sometimes the sun goes ‘round the moon. Sometimes love happens like the pop of a balloon. And sometimes you learn to live with it before you learn you’re also nose-deep in it.
Cute ending. But I would have liked to hear about Draco's and Hermione's perspective.
Author's Response: Thanks as ever, Kylie! I might consider a rewrite later when my WIP's are done. Who knows, right? Thanks again!
Summary: After a painful final parting, Hermione is scarred by Draco's duty to fight with Lord Voldemort. Years later, in a place of resolution, can the two find the strength to wish the other peace and offer forgiveness?
So, I'm going to just imagine here that they end up having their own happily-ever-after with each other... Are we all cool with that? 'Kay. Awesome.
Author's Response: Sounds perfect! I may not be good enough to write one that will do them justice.
Summary: In a world destroyed by bitter hatred, where magic is gone and her family dead and buried, a young woman makes her way to the Department of Mysteries, where she finds the one thing she was least expecting.
Definitely intriguing, and I most definitely liked the ending. Very nice job. :)
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad it was interesting for you, and that the end worked. The end was part of the original idea, it was always going to finish that way so I'm glad you liked it. Thanks so much for reading this, I really appreciate the review! ~Gina :)

Summary: Time heals all wounds
Hah! I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed that ending... Amusing, to say the least. I mean, the whole Ron and Pansy thing would be kind of a stretch if you ask me, but... It was still funny. :)
Author's Response: Not meant to be funny, but thanks for reading! =]
Summary: A question. An answer. Hermione reconsiders her relationship with Draco Malfoy.
Oh, this is so cute... ^_^ I'd love to read more of a chaptered fic on your take on their relationship in this particular circumstance. All the details of what led up to it and such. I thoroughly enjoyed it, though. Well done. :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! You know, I was so excited as I was trying to come up with a backstory to this, but I don't know that there will ever be more. If you check my author's page, I'm a pretty canon-loving girl, lol. But you never know, I suppose! It was a great challenge to try and make these two believable in my eyes. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for the review! ~Gina :)
Summary: He prayed that she would say something - anything to appease Bellatrix. But she did not - that infuriating, idiotic, beautiful, courageous, stubborn, uncontrollable bint. He had never loved her more.
One of the hardest things in this world is to watch someone you love experience unimaginable pain and be powerless to stop it. But if you did have some power - any at all - to take that pain away, would you use it, even at the risk of your own life? Would you defy your allies - your family - to help someone who is supposed to be an enemy? Or would you do nothing - like the coward everyone assumes you are?
Draco Malfoy was tired of being a coward.
Oh my Godric, this was so fantastic. I just... I can't even process how absolutely fantastic this was. The word choice was excellent, the story itself was obviously well revised, and the storyline was completely believable. The last line sent me smiling uncontrollably, however ironic that may be. My eyes were literally glued to the sceen the entire time I was reading this. What a stupendous one-shot, and a job very well done! I look forward to reading more of your works!
Oh, and by the way. Thank you for inspiring me to write fanfiction again. I really appreciate it. :)
Summary: Lily Evans unknowingly purchases a not so normal quill. She has no idea what it does until it's too late! Watch as Lily creates a world of her own. Crazy students, hilarious situations and Professors in their underwear! Read on as the craziness continues!
Over 2000 reads!! Wohoo! Thanks everyone! (Pictures the little aliens from Pizza Planet in Toy Story) I am eternally grateful! :) I love all of your lovely reviews!
I like this chapter, but you have to remember what time period they were living in... The Disney princesses, Pirates of the Caribbean, and "Don't Worry, Be Happy" all came after Lily's generation's time. The story's funny, but try to be historically accurate. :P
Author's Response: Yea...I've got no excuse for that...Just thought it'd be funny!
Summary: Behind the walls of Hogwarts, deep in the shadows, lurk the secrets of the Founders. Of one mind, at first, their legacy came close to crashing down when two locked horns.
With Helga Hufflepuff determined to disband the Houses and admit anyone, Salazar knows he has to keep the other two on side. But Godric is distracted ... and soon Salazar is, too.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling and I'm not as old as the Founders.
I am, however, Equinox Chick and this is my entry into the School of Mischief Challenge for the Great Hall.
Thank you Natatatatatatatattatatattatatat (hestiajones) for beta'ing this and to Karador (Karaley Dargen) for letting me moan when it collapsed on me.
Winner of the Best Chaptered SSP award in the 2012 QSQ's. Yippeeeee!
I didn't expect there to be this much slash... :
Author's Response: It's Professors. It has two warnings - Sexual Situations and Slash. What did you expect? Holding hands and a gentle peck on the cheek?
