Bio:
Currently working on writing my own mini-series of one-shots- all AU and Humor. They should be pretty good :)

As for what I enjoy reading- I like Draco/Hermione and Draco/Ginny stories, but I'm no shipper I like the canon relationships. Most of my favorites are on my "To-Read List".

The Dark Phoenix by L A Moody
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 64]

Summary:

Even in a time of peace, evil never sleeps…

In the post Deathly Hallows world Harry Potter is a broken man, rejecting the public’s view of him as a hero and seeing himself as a destroyer of lives. Although married to Ginny and embraced by the boisterous Weasley clan, he holds himself apart from true happiness. The only solace he finds is among the other shell-shocked victims of the war: George Weasley and Andromeda Tonks. But young Teddy Lupin is determined to unearth the joy his godfather once had for life and in so doing adds to the alternate dimension where the cost of Voldemort’s defeat was not so high.

In the alternate reality, it has been seven years since Voldemort’s defeat. Reclaiming his own destiny, Harry has built a new life for himself from the ruins of the Potter estate. Although he did not hesitate to claim Ginny as his own, it has been an unusually long engagement period as neither of them has been a hurry to take that next irrevocable step. For Harry, these extra years have allowed him to recapture some of the carefree days of youth as he established his career in the Auror Department. Determined not to follow in her mother’s footsteps, Ginny has been making the most of the intervening years to cement her career with the WWN. The Lupin clan has been steadily expanding with the eldest, Teddy, immediately establishing himself as a Metamorphmagus, sporting bright turquoise hair at birth. In contrast, his younger sister inherited the delicate beauty of the Black family. As her parents await the signs that will identify her as a witch, one has to wonder whether she has any unique powers of her own.

Although this story starts on a dark and disturbing note, it is ultimately a tale of hope, healing and survival. It serves as an epilogue to both, Cruel Moon for the Misbegotten and Harry Potter and the Hero’s Lament; and consequently, contains all manner of spoilers for the canon series as well as the alternate universe my prior tales have established. Reading those two previous stories is recommended. Contains original characters who were established in prior narratives.

I enjoyed this :)

It was very close to JK Rowling's style, only a few differences from the cannon- but that could be attributed to Teddy being the "writer"

Here is a few things that jumped out at me:

- Patronuses/Animagi Form [in the Canon they are the same- their "true" personality]

- Mermaid Hair wand core [Ollivander says that he only uses dragon heartstring, unicorn tail hairs, and pheonix feathers]

- Both Durmstrang and Beauxbatons are co-ed, not all boys or all girls [canon]

- (ch 22) Wizards come of age at 17, not 18 [unless he was old for his year, it should have been his 17th birthday]

-Edwin Brimley couldn't have been dorm-mates with Cedric and in his final year, Cedric died during his 6th year

- Ginny's Patronus is a horse, not a fire-lizard

- Kettleburn was Care of Magical Creatures professor before Hagrid, not Grubbly-Plank (she was a substitute)

- The incantation for water is Aguamenti
