Wife and mom of two beautiful little girls; psychology major at University of Phoenix, past performer at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. My hubby Doug works at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and has THE BEST JOB-- he is a wandkeeper (An Ollivander-type performer) who does a show that helps a wand find a child in the audience. Our whole family is HP crazy; my 6 yr old's having a HP b-day party and my 3-yr old speaks with a British accent and insists on calling me Mrs. Weasley!! :)
Summary: Callie and Lia, a Gryffindor and a Slytherin. A lady and a tomboy. Two opposite souls. Two sisters. Separated at birth by circumstances they are determined to discover... and undo. Yes, after being reunited, the siblings plan to reunite their parents as well. Let’s see them accomplish House Unity, too!
“It’s our rule not to dredge up past things, remember?”This rule is about to be broken.
~Inspired by a worldwide beloved film.
Ok, by far this has been my favorite chapter!!!!!! Draco with baby Callie was so painfully, blissfully sweet that my heart kept fluttering and I actually teared up. And Hermione with baby Lia was just the same; and funny thanks to her little Slytherin child! I have two girls and you took me back to when they were my babies. My favorite line: "...when infants still smelled like angels." So true! KUDOS!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks, Stefanie! Aww, you teared up? That's my job done, hehe. Glad you loved that line. I looove sniffing-kissing babies. Thanks again!
Yay- I was dying to know what would happen to them if they broke the agreement. Glad you added this part- it sets up a bunch of things nicely.
Keep em' coming! :)
Author's Response: Thanks as ever, Stefanie! Will do! ;)
Author's Response: Thanks as ever, Stefanie! Will do! ;)
Oh, thank GOD you're back!!! I was getting withdrawl symptoms. This was lovely- I had to fan myself a bit during the "I want to bite you everywhere" part!! I'm dying to know more about their backstory- the making love with their clothes on, Blaise, how and why they split up- so many questions! Keep the answers coming, sister!! ;)
Author's Response: "I want to bite you everywhere" is an adaptation of Gustave Flaubert's famous "I will cover you with love when next I see you..." Google that quote. It was probably so shocking and scandalous back in the 18th century! Thank you for still being there, Stefanie! Answers should be soon. We're getting closer to the end.
I always stop everything to read an update from you! Yet another fabulous chapter. Oh, the moment when Draco sees Hermione holding baby James in her arms in the hospital, that must have just made his knees almost buckle! And I always love hearing about how he was with Callie when she was a baby. Please, please, more when you have a chance!!! :D
Not cursing you, only cursing the days between your updates! ;) I'm Catholic too and so Christmas Mass was a nice treat. I'm hungering for all the backstory and for Draco and Hermione to just do it, already!! ;)
Author's Response: You know what, I'm hitting myself upside the head because I forgot the 'peace be with you' part. Hmpf. That would have been an excuse for PDA! I think I'll edit the chapter. :D Mwahaha. If I do, I'll tell you gals in the next chapter so you can look back. Thanks as ever, Stefanie! There's proof that they DID DO IT, woman, so patience! ;)
The ruse has been perfectly revealed- way to go! Love it when either the twins or their parents say the same things. Waiting for the next chapter!! :D
Author's Response: Thanks, Stefanie dearest! And I'm so glad you liked my version of the ruse. AND that you like that I make them unknowingly parrot each other, LOL. *hugs
This is a lovely, adorable, wonderful story! Just like Callie, I started this tale several hours ago and just "couldn't put it down"- it's nearly 4am! Sooooo looking forward to the next installment! :)
Author's Response: Thank you so mucho, Stefanie! My gosh, go to bed! LOL ;D Next update should be next week!
Summary: Sequel to "An Aversion to Change."
It's Voldemort's world now: a world of corruption, betrayal, greed, and violence. A world of evil thoughts and evil deeds, where no one can be trusted, especially those closest to you.
But through it all, there must be strength. There must exist those who will stand up to totalitarian rule, who will say no when others submit, who must survive despite their condition. There must exist the resilient.
Eventual Draco/Hermione with plenty of plot. Very dark, so read at your own risk!
Stunning. Tragic and mesmerizing and absolutely stunning. This new reader cannot wait for your next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you!! I'm glad you're enjoying it!
Congratulations, dear, on completing this epic story! You had me glued to every word. I laughed, cried, swore, and cheered through it all. This is literally and by far the best fic I've ever read. It's a crying shame you can't publish the darn thing. Well well well well done!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much!! I'm glad you liked it! :)
YES! YES! YES!!!!! After 24 chapters, I feel as though I can finally exhale. Brilliant work. Already looking forward to the next chapter.
Author's Response: Haha, yes, feel free to breathe now! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!
Summary: After the war, Hermione returns to Hogwarts to complete her seventh year of studies as Head Girl, only to find Draco Malfoy has been appointed Head Boy. Her life is further complicated by the fact that Headmistress McGonagall is strongly encouraging Malfoy and her to attend one of the three wizarding universities in Europe after they graduate from Hogwarts. The story starts HG/RW, but the focus is on the development of HG/DM.
I sincerely hope you're writing a sequal!!
Author's Response: Yes, I am! It's called More Wandless Magic with Malfoy! Thank you for your support, Jenny
I had to take a cold shower after this chapter, as my hubby wasn't home for me to throw down on our bed. WOW!!!!!!
It amuses me to no end that Draco Malfoy, "experienced and knowledgable lover", would need a G-spot spell. That was bloody hilarious! Anytime you want to write a chappie like this, go on right ahead. ; )
Author's Response: I've had a bit of fun making the sex amongst our characters (Ron especially) less than perfect. I have to admit, I get totally embarrassed when I'm writing this stuff, but I felt like the story required it. I'm very, very happy to hear you enjoyed it. Thank goodness, or I'd feel even more the fool. Thank you! Jenny
New Reader! An excellent story, and oh how I love to read about Ron being a completely thick-headed git and Draco trying to sincerely turn his life around... all while being so effing sexy!!! Why can't I be Head Girl? *sighs wistfully*
Your storytelling is fantastic, spot-on and very believable. Too many D/Hr fics move them too quickly along the path from hate to love; in yours, Draco and Hermione are so completely themselves even as they grow and change. My overall point is: Well done and put up another chapter!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful, positive review of the story! I'm so glad you like it. The next chapter is in the queue, so we just have to wait until it is approved. Thank you! --Jenny
Ahhhhh- a cliffhanger!!! What will happen now? *wrings hands* Don't let Lucius hurt them!!!
Great chapter, btw. Looking forward to the next one! :D
Author's Response: Thank you. I guarantee a happy ending. There's enough bad stuff going on in the real world. I use fanfiction to be uplifting. :-) Jenny
Such a great story! I've read the whole thing, and your plot has so many great threads to it. Love the university stuff; the conflict btw Ron and Hermione is completely in character for the both of them. Ron is such an ignorant git. And who doesn't love Draco?!?! Love the chemistry. The whole idea about his use of the tickling charm is brilliant-I almost peed myself when he bragged about climaxing the girl across the room. Now just keep him safe- bad, bad Lucius!! He and Hermione are going to get it on at some point, right? Oh, I wish I was her. : )
Author's Response: I'm glad you are enjoying the story. And yes, even though the naughty bits embarrass me when I write them, I did write an exciting conclusion that I hope you enjoy. Just a few more chapters to get you there. Thank you, Jenny
Lovely new chapter! Nice to see some real action between Draco and Hermione (I'm such a perv!). Sigh, to be Hermione...
And I loooove that he beat that git Ron at chess.
Where's his mother? Is she all right? I hope so! Next chapter please!! :D
Author's Response: Poor Ron. I've made him into such an idiot that we are all happy to see him lose at wizard chess! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the "action" part. I always get nervous about writing those bits. --Jenny
As a part of his punishment for his part in the war, Draco was sentenced to a year living as a Muggle in the Muggle world. Harry ropes Hermione into serving as Draco's liaison with the Ministry and guide to the Muggle world. Can she open his eyes to the joys of Muggle living or will she Avada him first? Set post-DH, ignores epilogue.
New Reader! Just read all five chapters- your story is fantastic! It has a really nice flow and your character development is spot-on; it's not rushed, and therefore it's believable. And OH, the sexual tension between Hermione and Draco- so yummy!! Hell, I'd give my right arm to be in her shoes right now( though if I was, I may need that arm...) Any way, it's a terrifically creative idea for a story- please post your next chapter soon! :D
YAY! So glad to see another chapter. Love how the tension is building between Draco and Hermione- he's so sexy!! The part with Molly was touching and sweet. Looking forward to more! :)
Summary: Voldemort has been vanquished in the Second Wizarding War and Hermione returns to start life afresh at the Burrow. However, a cloud of misery and gloom hangs over the house as the Weasleys mourn the death of their loved ones. To escape the atmosphere of despair and grieving, Hermione decides to live with the Lovegoods, where everything is serene and calm and the horrors of the world seem unrealistic. Parvati Patil is also staying with Luna and Xenophilius as her parents and twin sister are away in India, visiting their relatives. Ron is constantly pressurizing Hermione into marriage and sending daily owls as well as taking full advantage of the regular visits Hermione makes to the Burrow. But Hermione does not want to marry Ron, for she seeks many qualities in a life partner which Ron does not possess. When Molly marries Ginny to Harry, Ron gets another reason to goad her into commitment. And when Draco Malfoy arrives at the Lovegoods for a "brief stay", Hermione experiences unfamiliar emotions and realizes that she has fallen in love with Draco. But will Draco accept her despite her parentage? And what shall become of Ron when he comes to know of this development? An epic tale of adventure and romance, with Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione, Draco, Parvati and Luna as the main characters.
Great first chapter! I can't wait to see where you take this story. And I can't wait to see Draco! : )
Summary: Imprisoned, alone, about to lose his life. Some would say that there love was never meant to be. But Draco would disagree.
The companion piece to "The Longest Walk of Her Life."
Oh my God, what a story! My heart is breaking to pieces!!! Please don't let Hermione believe his note- she has to get Harry and a zillion other people to save Draco and hopefully his mother too. This chapter between Draco and Lucius was absolutely beautiful and heart-wrenching. I can't wait for your next chapter. PAMS!! : )
Author's Response: You are so cute! Thank you for reading and reviewing!! I COMPLETELY appreciate it!! But one thing, I don't understand PAMS
