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.
She should have punched him in the face for what he tried!
Author's Response: Yes she should have done, but she did deal with it pretty effectively. Thank you ~Carole~
Awesome, keep it up!

Summary: It is July 1994 and a man, riding a large winged beast, lands on a small Caribbean island. Sirius Black is looking for a sanctuary.
Sarah Macaulay has been living on the island for three years. She meets Sirius when he's washed up on her beach and for some unfathomable reason takes pity on this drifter.
Both have a past. Both have demons deep inside them. Both need to heal.
your stories are the best! Keep writing!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I REALLY should finish this one.
Summary: Something odd indeed has happened in the life of Severus Snape. He is a happy, engaged man about to start a new life. Things are, for the first time in his life, perfect.
Or are they? What would happen if Severus Snape found out that his dream existence was nothing but a figment of his imagination? Would he chase after happiness?
i don't know.. a little more romance would be better
really good!!!! :))
Summary: Draco Malfoy -avid Death Eater, proud and eager to be of use to the Dark Lord. Or desperate boy willing to do anything to save his family from dishonour and his father from death? Perhaps both.
What if there'd been another way? What if the road he's taking could diverge and lead him on a different journey? His path is set, he thinks... but then he collides with an insignificant girl and his world changes.
This story is for Julia (the opaleye) whose poetical skill with words leaves me breathless. It is also her 21st birthday. Apologies that I didn't use your fabulous alternate title 'An Act of Selecting or Making A Decision When Faced With Two or More Possibilities?'
