I became intrigued with Harry Potter after the movie release of the Half-Blood Prince, after which I read the books and was accordingly caught in the thrill of Harry’s magic world. Since then I have never managed to escape.

I write fan fiction because I like to write, and would rather be writing original material but unfortunately inspiration is far and few between. I also happen to be an obsessive compulsive, raving fangirl whom enjoys furthering characters and exploiting tantalizing plot opportunities. Also, because all that nasty business of coming up with characters/setting/plot has already been taken care of by someone else.

I have another profile, under the same name, on "the pit of voles" where you can find many more Harry Potter stories written by me, as well as brushes with a couple other fandoms. I only submit works to this site that are among my personal favorites.

I'm fond of one-word titles and chocolate.

Gorgeous prose and a very sweet story. I liked the style tremendously.


Summary: When Lucius Malfoy asked me to be his attorney, I had no choice but to accept. Actually… I suppose I did have a choice, seeing that it wouldn’t exactly have put Lucius in the best light if he’d threatened me while on trial, or anything like that. But the choice I had, frankly, came down to money. In fact, I find that a lot of choices come down to money in today’s legal system—not the least of which was the choice to let Mr Malfoy walk free.

A deceptively light, satirical story about a young lawyer who makes his big break to success during the trial of Lucius Malfoy--and learns an important lesson in the process.

This is utterly fantastic. The idea was fresh an clever and perfectly executed. The characters and character-growth was spot-on.
The content was both humorous and poignant - you did a lovely job of combining levity with grief, and Fred's thoughts of watching George back down on earth, slowly slipping away from him.
I could go on and on about how much I enjoyed this. Favorited and treasured.


Chocolate Frog by L A Moody
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 153]

Summary: Past Featured StoryAmid 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.

My gosh, this chapter is gorgeous. Tears are falling thick and fast. You write beautifully and I'm thoroughly enjoying this story, and looking forward to perusing your others. I'm particularly impressed with your dialog, which has both wit and intelligence. I'm intrigued with the concept of Moody's survival, and wondering whether or not he shall ever reveal himself to the remainders of the Order. Hopefully he shall; I found it exceedingly sad that Tonks didn't realize he was still alive before she died. Well, on to the next chapter....

Author's Response: So pleased you liked this particular chapter. It’s one of my favorites as well – even though it’s really sad. It was particularly difficult deciding which other “good” characters had to die to round out this chapter. Perhaps that’s how JKR felt at times. Who knows? Sometimes I feel that large chunks of this story consist of paying homage to characters which were discarded too easily in canon.

> Hope you enjoy the rest of the stories! And haven’t despaired of a new update just yet….

Well, a little more than half-way through, I thought it was about time to leave another comment. I wanted to compliment you on how well you've put together this story, all the sub-plots and side-stories are mashed together very convincingly. I'm also thoroughly enjoying all the characters - both cannon and original.

Particular things I liked included your explanation of why Harry was so good with little children (which made me, at the same time, very sad and angry at the Dursleys), I also loved, loved, loved your characterization of Luna. Her talking to Mary at the front gate was utterly hilarious. You've really nailed her. I also really enjoyed Ron and Mike, and how they seemed to connect so well while joking about Luna.

Anyway, I'm very excited to see what happens next and congratulations on this stellar job.

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

As I’ve said before, I originally intended for this to be an Auror-centred murder mystery with family crises on the side. But my narrator persuaded me otherwise. Jacqui rather took over. Many of the original characters (Lavender’s husband, Terry and Michaels wives) have appeared in other stories, so I know them well.

It seems that Harry’s past could have pushed him one of two ways. I think that, if it weren’t for Ginny, he’d spoil his kids. It takes me a long time to write Luna. I have to reach the point where she enters, and then try to find a Luna-worldview, and base her replies on her logic. I believe that Ginny is right not to be worried about inviting Luna to a party. The fact that she doesn’t fit in is immaterial, because she doesn’t fit in the magical world, either. In some ways Ron and Hermione are very like Mike and Jacqui.



The Missing Hands by Hotrav
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]


Molly Weasley seems to have a heart big enough to accept anyone in need of love. It doesn't matter if the person is an abused little boy named Harry or her son's always present 'friend' Hermione, Molly will mother them.

Perhaps her need to reach out is caused by what should be present, but is not. The Missing Hands...

Tea Behind Bars by WeasleyMom
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: Past Featured StoryShaking free of one's chains is never easy. Least of all, for Draco Malfoy.

This story received a 2014 QSQ award for Best General Story, one-shot. Thanks!

Disclaimer: I am not J.K. Rowling. (Duh.)

Dedication: I wrote this for Carole/Equinox Chick, because I've wanted to write her a birthday fic for three years and failed, because her encouragement has meant more to me than she could possibly know, and because she told me to write more Draco. (What?) She's also Mistress of The Brawl, from whence this fic came.

After you're lovely review on "I Suspect Nargles" I decided to check out your profile, and I was immediately drawn to this and subsequently rewarded with a very satisfying read.

I'm usually not a fan of first-person, especially for a character so difficult to capture as Draco, but in this case (due to the quality of the writing) I think the style fit very well. You didn’t exaggerate his emotion or try to spur sympathy from the reader by making him overly self-pitying. In fact, you captured his conflicting emotions, confusion, pain, sadness, and even disdain quite well.

Many things stood out to me. The imagery of the four different gems from the four different houses, scattered together on the floor among all that death and destruction was quite striking. I also enjoyed how you had Draco pocket an emerald. The symbolism in that is strong. I also liked Draco’s aside that he didn’t even know his mother could make tea. And, of course, leaving his father behind in Azkaban is very heart-rending.

Overall, a very enjoyable, poignant fic, especially considering how you managed to fit all that you did into a relatively short piece. Well done.

Author's Response: I'm so sorry I didn't respond to this lovely review sooner. I'm usually much better about that, but somehow several for this fic slipped my attention. I think all of my first person fics started as drabbles. I mention it because first person can get tedious after a while, but for something short, it works a little better. And since I think post-war Draco would have been rather on the silent, brooding side, I wanted to settle into his head for a bit. I'm relieved you didn't think the emotion was exaggerated because that is something I fall prey to sometimes. :) Thanks again for taking the time to read and for the lovely review. I appreciate it!
