I'm a 16 year old die-hard fan, and have been for years and years and years... Not only did I stick with Harry until the end, I can't help it, I have to stick with him/ the wizarding world beyond the end...
My favourite characters are Ginny, because well, she's Ginny, and Luna. I'm in Ravenclaw House (on Pottermore).
Please read and review anything i write- at the moment i have lots of things waiting to go into the queue.

Wow. That made me cry so much... That was amazing! I loved it. I love Snape :') Thanks for the story!!!
Summary: True love does not end at death do us part, but lasts forever. Harry and Ginny have had a lifetime together, but what happens beyond then? Follow their last day together on earth.
Take my hand and lead me to salvation. Take my love, for love is everlasting. And remember, the truth that once was spoken, to love another person is to see the face of God. -Les Misérables

This story has been given a facelift! Why not give it another read?
Just a quick note to say- this is amazing! I love it. Also, thought i should mention, the line from Les Mis, is my favourite line in the whole musical, and it was playing on my ipod (the line from the song!!!) while i was reading it on the screen. I had to read the story then, and I'm so glad I did; it was great.
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. Heâ€™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 Remusâ€™ comfort. Heâ€™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.
This is brilliant! Please update sometime; I really enjoyed it!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'll try ~Carole~
Summary: We all think that James Potter was actually like his grandfather- a prankster, while Albus Potter is just a sweet, innocent boy, a victim of his brother's pranks. But what if in reality it was the other way round?
I really like the idea that Al would be the prank-player, and that James would be the one being framed, but don't you think you made Al seem a little, well evil? Other than that, really enjoyed it! xxx
Author's Response: Haha, lol, I wrote this fic when I was in grade 8 or 9, so at that time I guess I felt the need to exaggerate things a lot. I think that's why Albus turned out evil instead of just a prank-player. :P. Anyway, thanks for the review, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! --Nadia
A note was discovered in the aftermath of Harry's capture at Malfoy Manor. It's sweet, it's romantic, it's...complete fluffy rubbish.
What will happen to this heartfelt missive? Will it find its intended recipient, or will it be lost in the wreckage of Voldemort's former occupation?
Im a big fan of Harry/ Ginny, and I like a reformed Malfoy. This is one of the best short fanfics i've read in a while (and being on study leave I've read a lot in the past few weeks) Keep it up! xxx
You won't find a terribly large quantity of Harry/Ginny on my author page, alas, but you did find the single one I wrote about just them. I rarely ever go down this far on my author page, as there are probably little gremlins wearing capes of spiderwebs, stabbing things that ought to be stabbed with pitchforks.
Anyway, I'm glad you liked the story. I'm not too sure I particularly like the story myself, especially so far after the fact, but I'm happy that you found it if it brought you enjoyment. :)
*These are the times that try men's souls.
Well, that couldn't be any more real for Draco Malfoy than on the eve of his wedding. He was getting married the next day, but all he could think about is how his life was about to become so much more damned complicated.
He had no idea.
*Quote - Thomas Paine, American revolutionary.
This fic was nominated for a 2010 Quicksilver Quill Award - Best Humour
wow... This is amazing!!! I love it :) I like the way its really brutal about what the Malfoy family might have been like to try and get back into respectable wizarding society and how Draco might have then dealt with it. Personally, i usually go for a nicer, Draco actually repented idea, but i like the dark one too. Keep it up, I love the stuff you write :) xxx
Normally, I like the idea that Draco was able to take his forced attitude adjustment and become a better person, buuuut I just felt like torturing him for a bit. Then this fic was born. It will probably be my only foray into humour. My type of humour doesn't translate well onto the page, hehe.
Anyway, thank you for stopping by. I'm still mildly baffled and extremely happy that this story has gone over so well, even ages after I wrote it, so your review made me smile. <3
Summary: Amid the desolation of Diagon Alley, a tiny ray of hope lay buried. Nothing more than a tidbit amid the sweeping despair of Deathly Hallows, yet it would not let go of my imagination. Had I found the casually inserted pivotal clue that would rise like Nicolas Flamel from the pages of the first book? Or had I stumbled upon another Mark Evans: nothing but filler detail in the opening pages of The Order of the Phoenix, JKR having overlooked that he bore the same last name as Harry’s mother?
So I waited for my little gem to bear fruit, to become one of those climactic surprises we should have seen coming, but somehow overlooked. Only it never came to pass. The death count mounted to a staggering high, the epic moments came and went, Snape’s back story was finally revealed, and still nothing.
So it has lain, bereft and unwanted, among the detritus of a Diagon Alley the Death Eaters had turned into a bully’s playground. But in the intervening years, this rough diamond has become the inspiration for this story, spreading its tentacles into new and intriguing territories.
Although Harry mentions Chocolate Frog as the title of Mad-Eye Moody’s autobiography at the end of my previous tale, The Dark Phoenix, this version of the story goes beyond that. Nonetheless, the sections representing Moody’s memoirs are clearly labeled.
This story begins with events recounted in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and continues beyond the end of the series. I have attempted to conform to canon as much as possible, elaborating only where the circumstances are vague or passed over. It is an interpretation of the events that happened behind the scenes, so to speak.
Just thought I'd share- this is the first story I read on MNFF and it drew me in! Now, I'm writing two stories of my own (the first chapters of which are now in the queue) and have read more fanfics over the past few weeks than i care to admit.
This is amazing, different and I love it! Please keep writing :) xxx
Author's Response: Iâ€™m thrilled that you like my story! Thanks for the compliments. (blushes) Itâ€™s an honor to know that I inspired you to try your hand at this; much the same happened to me. Iâ€™m certain youâ€™ll do great things and Iâ€™ll keep my eye out for your name among the â€śmost recentâ€ť entries.
It is Ginny’s twentieth birthday, and she wants to play a game with Harry.
Just thought i'd share that this had me laughing aloud- its brilliant, and so Ginny :P xxx
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I'm glad I could make you laugh. -N-
Summary: Weddings don't just happen you know! They need planning.
Brilliant. You had me in fits of giggles!!!
Author's Response: Thanks. That was the plan :-D -N-
Harry and Ginny reach their centuries. Life after one hundred years in ten one-hundred word scenes.
Nominated for: Best Canon Romance (One-shot) story - Quicksilver Quills 2012
Just wanted to say- this is brilliant. And, unlike most fanfiction, completely different! I love it :)
Author's Response: Thank you. I aim to finish a few more of my stories soon, too. -N-
Summary: When Sirius Black has an idea, not even his friends can convince him itâ€™s doomed to failure. Thus, when Sirius decides to throw a Christmas party in order to play matchmaker for James and Lily, nothing will deter him from his plans. However, Sirius has never actually hosted a party before and one disaster follows the next. Eventually, even Sirius has to admit that it would take a miracle in order for Lily to fall for James. Fortunately, Christmas is a time for miracles...
This is Hypatia of Gryffindor, writing for the Great Hall-iday Challenge, Operation: Mistletoe
I love it! I absolutely love it!!!! Sirius is completely incapable of setting Lily and James up, but Remus manages it, and they end up together... :')
Author's Response: Thank you! I had a lot of fun writing this (particularly since Sirus's schemes never went even close to plan and I thought Remus was due to have a plan work.)
Thanks for reviewing,
Muggle-born Calla thinks she is prepared for life at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After all, her parents both went to boarding school, so what could be so different?
Calla soon finds out that expectations are never the same as reality, and learns more than she ever thought she would about loyalty, friendship, good and evil.
A/N: This story takes place during the Next Generation era. JKRâ€™s characters have small parts throughout, but are not the main characters. Iâ€™m continuing in the alternate universe I began in Snapeâ€™s Son.
The rating for most of the story is 3-5th years, with warnings for the end chapters.
Just a short note to say that this is very good! I like the idea of Dudley's daughter being a witch and I love the characterisation of Aunt Petunia. Interesting sorting; choice between Hufflepuff and Slytherin... I thought that gave us quite a good idea of Calla in a shortish length of time :) I like the characterisation of the other Slytherins too, with some being the old style Slytherins, and some having the characteristics that Salazar prized in his students... Keep it up, I'm interested to see how this one turns out :)
Author's Response: I've been a bit lax in my responses, but have been trying to acknowledge everyone who post a review. Thanks for much for taking the time to do so. I have to say that my favorite aspect of writing is developing my characters. I appreciate that you are getting as much enjoyment out of them as I am in their creation.
Summary: This may be the end: one final battle will determine the fate of the Wizarding World. But as war wages on outside Hogwarts, how does Ginny Weasley cope? Will she survive the night, or will the battle leave her forever broken?
Firstly- thank goodness it didn't end here...
Then- This is outstanding. It's paced just right, and the second person perspective gives just the right insight into her character... I love a Ginny who understands Harry. Well she'd have had to I guess because he's not great at explaining his feelings ;P Anyway... I also like the use of the third person pronouns for everyone throughout. Its a bit hard to get used to at the beginning, but it does remind you of exactly how she'd be thinking, and it makes it seem almost to jump, as her thoughts would. Congratulations! xxx
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm a big believer in that JKR intends Ginny to know Harry almost better than he knows himself; he's not good at showing his feelings, so she'd have to be able to tell without him speaking. I got caught up in all the pronouns and thought to revert to names at some point, but I felt that the night would be so chaotic that names wouldn't have a chance to register before things changed again. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. ~ Megan
Summary: Draco Malfoy is known throughout Hogwarts for his irresistable charm and heart-stopping good looks. At least, that's what he thinks.
Follow him on his quest to find the perfect date for the Yule Ball. Will he settle for the mysterious Miss L, or will he realise that sometimes the perfect match is in front of you the whole time?
This story was nominated for a Quicksilver Quill Award 2012: Best Humour Story
omg wow! i haven't laughed like that in a while... A date between Luna and Malfoy!!!!! Genuis my friend, Genius! xxx
Author's Response: Haha, thank you! I have to say, I was laughing whilst I wrote it :)
Summary: The story of Ron and Hermione through a series of missing moments. Who said love was simple?
Wow! I'm a huge Romione fan and ive always wondered what happened during all those moments JKR didn't tell us about. I particularly liked the "Ron, I doubt anything you say could ever break my heart." :P made me laugh xxx
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :)
WOW! I'm a huge huge huge Romione fan, and I think Christmas has just come early!!! This is brilliant... I love it all, especially Hermione trying to explain to herself, with logical, reasonable explanations as to why she likes Ron... Its so Hermione. Keep it up- Its brilliant
Author's Response: They're just the best, aren't they? Thanks for reading and reviewing :) I'm glad you're liking it so far!
Summary: It was the night before Christmas and Ron Weasley's plans for a quiet night in with his pregnant wife and her infuriating cat don't quite go to plan.
That was brilliant! I was laughing the whole way through... Nasty cliffie at the end though! Post the second half plese!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) Sorry about that... the story was too long as one chapter and the split had to happen somewhere. Second half is coming as soon as possible!
Summary: New Year's Eve, (or Hogmanay if you prefer). What sort of imbecile thinks it's a good idea to give a married man with two kids, and a very pregnant wife, a love potion? It should be a time to celebrate. For "the best dad in the world" and his wife, it's time for chocolate biscuits, cocktails, an Auror in a leopard print dress, Dung and Coco.
This was a great laugh! Really enjoyed it. Very detailed one-shot, but without one detail too many, or it seeming either too descriptive, or too fluffy.
I like the idea of being able to resist Amorentia if you truly love someone else, it makes sense, and makes for a great story. (Plus points for the Lavender/Mark moments, they added to the plot and developed one of my favourite OC couples)
I also really liked how Sid barely registered the 'Potter' link- for some people at least, Ginny is more famous than Harry, and that was lovely. I can see them both being laughing about it when they get home.
Thanks for the review. I was tempted to classify this as humour, rather than Harry/Ginny, but their relationship is the hart of the story. It's a lot longer than I originally planned, but I hope that it's like Lavender's dress.
The potions quotes I used are all canon, and it doesn't seem to be a great leap (to me) that Amortentia can be resisted.
I work with a couple of blokes who would have a hard time naming their senior managers, but who can tell you the names of every footballer who's played for their team for the past ten+ years. It didn't seem a stretch to have a Harpies fan who has no idea who Ginny married. They will laugh, but Ginny will send him an autographed Quaffle, too.
