I'm an avid reader, writer, reviewer, blogger, podcaster, fangirl. I'm currently doing my GCSEs, and so there isn't always a lot of time for writing, but I always make time to read great stories.
Summary: It's Halloween and the Head Boy and Head Girl are stuck in the greenhouses for detention. Will they escape the clutches of the deadly Devil's Snare…or worse, one another?
A lighthearted tale for Halloween, not to be read in the greenhouse.
Love this! (There isn't really much else I could say to describe it, sorry! :D)
Summary: Lisa Turpin - new recruit to Dumbledore's Army - is determined to prove her worth to the team. But when Ginny Weasley informs her that her patrol partner has changed, she isn't at all happy. Susan Bones is not a girl she's had much to do with, for the Hufflepuff girl has never excelled at anything.
But can an hour on patrol, and an accident with a foul smelling egg change things between them?
This story was an emergency fic for Natalie's birthday (in case I pulled the other one), but is also a Halloween tale about life under Snape and the Carrows. I have to thank Alex (welshdevondragon) for beta'ing and being AIM available for a chat.
Disclaimer: I'm not JK Rowling. You know that, don't you?
Wow - I never even considered this ship, but after 3 chapters I already love them to pieces. Awesome writing as always!
Author's Response: Thank you! I appreciate the review :) ~Carole~
Summary: Dread is the only thing that goes through Ariel Sachs’ mind as he embarks on his last year at Hogwarts. A place he’s grown to hate. He has no plans and no hopes for the future. The only constants in his life are his loneliness and his crush on Christian Ackerman, the Ravenclaw stud. Ariel soon realizes that his plans to quietly survive his last year won’t work, when he gets caught up in the preparations of the first wedding to be held at Hogwarts. On the way, he will find support from a couple of unexpected characters and maybe, even, meet that someone he has been longing for his entire life.
Loving this fic as it's completely different to the majority and has a unique style. Please update soon!
Author's Response: Hi thank you! I'll try to update as soon as I can.
Gah cliffhanger!! Please update soon!
Author's Response: The next chapter it's almost done. It'll hopefully be up soon. Thank you for the review!
A photograph and a slew of memories were all that remained of Remus Lupin's schoolboy romance with Marlene McKinnon. But she was gone, and he gagged on all the things he never said.
This story is dedicated to the gorgeous and always-inspiring Equinox Chick/Carole/Croll of the Dungeon. May your minions never stray in their worship of you. It was inspired by a rather gorgeous song by The Cure, called Pictures of You.
This story has been nominated for a 2012 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Marauder Era.
Beautiful, short and sweet.
Summary: In 1993, Bill Weasley is working on a tomb in Egypt with a team of Magiarchaeologists and Curse-Breakers. It is a job like any other ... or so it seems, until members of the expedition start dying, and Bill has to race against time to figure out what exactly it is that they awakened in the tomb of Mentuhotep, and how it can be stopped before it reaches him.
The following are characters from JKR’s creations: Bill Weasley, Ragnok, Agatha Chubb (QttA), and the last names of Deverill and Pilliwickle. I don’t own them and never will!
I owe a large debt to Hannah (coolh5000), Carole (EquinoxChick), and Natalie (hestiajones) for their constant encouragement and help at various stages of this story.
Fair Warning: Some of the reviews (naturally) contain spoilers, especially those towards the end. So if you want to be safe, don't read those before you read the story.
This story just WON a 2012 QSQ Award in the General category, as best chaptered story. THANK YOU!!!
A really great original story which, although it uses JKR's characters, seems to reinvent each of them. I've seen Bill in a new light and hope to read more of your fics soon!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review! :)
Summary: Spring, 1979: When both their love and their lives are tested by Dark magic, James Potter and Lily Evans must defy Voldemort for the first of more confrontations to come during the first Wizarding War.
Winner, Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Marauder Era story
A lovely little short story which I love. I do think that in Lily's situation at the end I would have been a bit more indignant but I do love the ending overall. I suspected that James would already have a ring :) Keep writing more great fics!
Summary: Lily Evans hates James Potter; he's reckless, careless, hopeless. James Potter loves Lily Evans; she's feisty, forward, firm. Over their years at Hogwarts, both of them change, and their love eventually becomes the stuff of legend. This is the story of how that love started and how it touched the lives of everyone they knew.
Great story; I can't wait to see where it leads. I really enjoy your writing style and characterisations. Please update soon!
Author's Response: I'm glad you're enjoying this. It's coming slowly and somewhat out-of-sequence, so once James and the gang decide to show up when I need them and not before or after, I'll have another chapter posted. Thanks for reading! ~ Megan
Summary: It had been three years since his wife's death, but the first woman to make him feel something is the last woman he'd have thought. The fact that he's closer in age to her father than to her does not help matters.
Otherwise known as All Soraya's Fault.
Important note: I used the Student/Teacher warning as a precaution; the relationship in this story is between a teacher and his former student, for whom he had no feelings while she was under his tutelage. Just to be clear.
Another important note: I'm not JKR. She has a much nicer house.
A great story - I was sceptical of the pairing at first but your intricate storytelling pulled at my heartstrings and made me believe in them. Please keep writing!
Summary: Charlie Weasley loves his job in Romania: he was born to lead the life of a carefree dragon keeper. Yet when a new keeper from Wales arrives to help with a difficult Chinese Fireball, Charlie is forced to take on a partner, when he'd rather work alone. And this new keeper challenges him in more ways than one…
Love, love, love this ship! I've enjoyed all the fics of yours that I've read, but this is one of the first original ships that I've agreed with. I couldn't see how you could possibly end this tale in such a short space of time but it was true perfection.
Narcissa Black and Lucius Malfoy were put on earth for each other: the most perfect soulmate the other could find. But life wasn’t going to make it easy for them…
This is a story of young love, stubbornness, misunderstanding and forgiveness. This is the story of them.
I have upped the rating for later chapters. However, most warnings are for milder instances.
Great fic - please update soon!
Summary: Diffraction - the phenomenon where light encounters an obstacle.
It is September the first, and a sixth-year boy takes photographs of excited children on platform nine-and-three-quarters. Everyone looks happy, but Aaron Harper's heart is leaden. He can deal with the girl he fancies going out with the obnoxious Hugo Weasley, but coping at Hogwarts with no support from his father could be one obstacle too many.
This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my story for the Character Clinic OC challenge: Prompt 1.
Disclaimer: I'm not JKR: Hogwarts isn't mine, neither is Hugo Weasley, but Aaron Harper and Genister Avery are.
I love this ship! Somehow, despite using only 2 chapters, you have managed to hook me in and tell a story which was unrushed and paced well. Definitely going to keep an eye out for any chaptered fics that may arrive :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I had an idea for this couple after writing a small bit about Genister in my chaptered fic, High, and then expanded on Aaron in a fic called Swans. I am so pleased you enjoyed the story because I do think it's hard holding the interest with a pair of OC's. Thanks again ~Carole~

Thank you to the ever inestimable Soraya for the beta and Ellie for helping me reconstruct the story after my planning file was corrupted.
This is Acacia Carter of Hufflepuff writing for the Great Hall Chaptered Challenge of 2012.
As other reviewers have said, this is an amazing story which NEEDS TO BE CONCLUDED! Seriously ;)
Summary: Seven months after leaving Hogwarts, James Potter is fighting for the Order of the Phoenix. When Lily Evans joins the resistance, his life is turned upside down. He'd proposed, after all, and she had said no. How could they work together now, after so much history together? Or could they find another chance amidst the war?
Love this fic, and how you write James/Lily! Have been trying to write a Marauder One-Shot and this is exactly how I want to capture their relationship.
Summary: “Not good--I mean, not bad. Uh, you?”
“I’m alive,” she said cheerfully.
The first three days after the battle, from the perspectives of Hermione, Ginny, and Luna.
A really nice, heart-warming fic about the days after the Battle, but I would have liked to have Hermione's mini-storyline concluded.
Summary: It was true that Daphne and Lee had met at a most inappropriate time, but they had found love, lust and the glimmerings of a life together.
But the power of persuasion should never be underestimated. When they meet again, years later, his indifference cuts to her core. Can the past ever truly be recaptured?
This story is a present for Julia (the opaleye) because she is amazingly talented and has inspired me in so many ways. It is also her brthday.

Winner of the 2013 QSQ Best Chaptered Non-Canon Romance ~ I am gobsmacked and grateful to everyone especially JK Rowling, Jane Austen and the Spice Girls.
Eeeeeek! ... I think that pretty much sums it up ;)
Author's Response: Hee hee. Hope that's a good 'eeek'. The Epilogue will follw soon, and then that's it. Thank you for reading and reviewing. ~Carole~
Loving this fic - so many plot twists!
Author's Response: Yayayay, thank you! I'm certainly having a lot of fun writing it and catching up with persuasion as well. :D ~Carole
I haven't read that particular work of Austen, but I'll definitely give it a read given how much I've loved this fic :) Seriously good! (I'd say something super fancy, but I'm still smiling from that ending!)
Author's Response: Glad you're smiling. Persuasion is a lovely book; I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for the review. ~Carole~
Summary: When impulsive new Auror Alice Hamilton is partnered with the more serious and experienced Frank Longbottom, neither is quite sure what to expect. They have a history, after all, and a different way of approaching the job. Yet in a world where dark forces continue to threaten the safety and security of the magical community, they must work together in spite of their feelings--especially when it becomes clear that You-Know-Who is planning a major offensive that will threaten both their relationship and their lives.
I love Alice and Frank's relationship and the realistic way that you write. Keep up the awesome work, and I look forward to the battle!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad you are enjoying this story. I'm working on the battle but boy, it's hard work. ;) Hopefully it will work itself out soon. Thank you again for the review! ~Gina :)
Summary: All Scorpius Malfoy had wanted on the Saturday before Halloween was to spend some time in Hogsmeade alone with his girlfriend, Lily Potter. But Fate appeared to have other plans. Not only is her annoying cousin Hugo Weasley tagging along, but in the aftermath of a violent storm, a body is uncovered.
Working with his boss, Head Auror Harry Potter, to discover the identity of the victim, and the truth of her death, Scorpius quickly learns that not all skeletons are buried underground.
This is a the sequel to High. It is not necessary to read that to understand this, but what the heck, you might just enjoy it!
Many, many thanks to Kara (Karaley Dargen) for not only beta'ing this story, but putting up with the tortuous search for a title.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but I think you know that.
Uncovered by Death won the 2013 QSQ for Best Chaptered Next Generation Story. Thank you very much.
Eeeek! Can't wait for the final 2 chapters - have loved this fic and can't wait to read more mystery fics from you :)
Author's Response: Thank you. Um, not sure how many more there will be as I'm really easing up on fanfiction so I can concentrate on original fiction. I have loved planning and plotting this, though, so if anything tempts me it will be something along the mystery lines. Thank you for all your reviews. ~Carole
