Hello, I'm Hermione_Rocks, though you may call me Anna, or D.E, or Mrs. Snape . . . whatever flies your kite. I'm a high school student who is hopelessly obsessed with many things, such as Harry Potter, musicals (current favorite is Sweeney Todd), books/reading, various Internet web-sites, and food.
As you can probably tell, I have an incurable love for writing fan-fiction. Would I do better to be working on original fiction? Probably. But at the moment, I just want to have fun with writing. One day I hope to be published, but I'm really not in any rush. Right now, I just want to enjoy all this. :)
I hope you find something you'd like to read while you're here, and please leave a review to let me know your thoughts. I'm always looking for feedback, good or bad.
Summary: Nine years has passed since Harry defeated Voldemort. Nine years that he spent in a coma. He wakes, to find that life has passed him by. How do you go on, and can love be found after it has been destoryed?
This story was written pre HBP and takes none of that new cannon into account. Also, it might be better defined as a series of one shots than an ongoing story.
Really great work. Hermione's response to everything was done extremely well. But it seems you kind of pushed Ron to the side. He was there, but he doesn't seem very close to Harry. But I guess people drift apart. Great chapter!
Author's Response: Ron and Harry are still as close as they ever were, but the relationship with Ron is not all that important to the story, where it is with Hermione. Guys just don't get into this kind of stuff with other guys very much. There just isn't much to write about there.
Beautiful...I nearly started to cry, and you know it's a good story when I do that. :) Great, great, great!
Author's Response: Nearly??? Damn, so close, and yet so far. I'll try harder next time. Thanks for the review.
Wonderful! You picked a great place to end, and even though I would have liked it to go on, you can't just keep writing a story for the sake of making it longer. Please let us all know when you publish a book!
Author's Response: No, you can't keep writing just so the story doesn't end. That would ruin it. I will try to let you know when I do publish my own writing. It will be a while, at least two years, so we will see how many of you I can still reach at that point in time. Thanks for all your encouragement, it was helpful for when I got stuck.
Loved all the Harry/Ginny stuff! :) Stephanie's a very enjoyable character, very well rounded for an OC. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks, glad you liked it and in particularly that you like Stephanie.
Oh my God...that was brilliant. I started to cry. You are really talented at writing. I'm giving you a ten, which I hardly ever do. Great great job!
Author's Response: Thank you.
Awesome! Keep it up!
Author's Response: thank you
Awesome! Keep it up!
Author's Response: thanks
You had to stop there didn't you! lol Write more soon!
Author's Response: Yes, I know it was cruel. I promise to put the next chapter in the queue in the next few days.
Summary: HBP Spoilers! Set immediately after the end of HBP, Severus Snape begins to explain exactly whose side he's on and what the stakes are in the coming battle. What is the curse of Arachne and how did it lead him to this point? Obsession, betrayal and a quest for redemption are all part of this historical account of Snape's life since coming to Hogwarts.
Thanks so much to my outstanding Betas: Orlaith, CCCC and Bobin221!
Wow. That was really great. Really sad, but really great. Poor Snape...:(
Great job. I think Snape might've lost control a little too much, but other than that, it was really well written. Keep it up!
Nice work. The part with Talier was a bit stiff, but other than that it was good.
Great chapter! Lots of action, and Talier is much more developed in this chapter. Can't wait for more!

This is really great! Write more soon!
Summary: They say time is a great healer.
There are so many wounds that donít heal.
A submission for the October monthly challenge, on the theme time - submitted by shadows_in_fire (Gryfindor house)
Now I understand why everyone puts 'R+R' on their fics. Some comments would be helpful!
Good work. It was short, but it got the point across nicely. Keep writing stories - it may be your first, but you did a really great job.
Summary: When 30-year-old Hermione Granger runs into an old Hogwarts classmate on the street she finds that time doesn't always change things. . .
That was really good. It's nice to see a story where Malfoy ends up on the good side, but that doesn't make him a good person. Great work!
Author's Response: Thanks, Hermione_Rocks! I adore Draco's character mostly because he is so nasty. Even when I consider that he might go over to the good side, I have a difficult time believing that it would change his character. I'm glad to see you feel the same!
Summary: "You did not come here to play chess."
On New Year's Eve, Minerva McGonagall finds herself without the usual distractions of students and staff. She decides there is only one way to solve the puzzle before her, and that she will have to take a rather large chance.
This was a submission for the Redemption Challenge and contains huge howling unavoidable HBP spoilers.
Your writing style is brilliant. The pairing was different, but still very believable and accurate. Excellent job!
Author's Response: Thank you! I had been wanting to write a SS/MM interaction, when Harry isn't looking, for quite some time; the Challenge just gave a particularly large and energetic bunny.
Summary: The classic Christmas carol done up Hermione Granger style!
Really funny. Great work!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it, Hermione_Rocks!
Summary: She was lonely, and needed to get away. She thought Hogsmeade would make a good destination. As she entered the Shrieking Shack, she found the very last person she expected to see. She wanted to kill him, but just may end up saving him instead.
Nice job! Snape was portrayed well; he lost control but didn't get out of character. Although Hermione did seem to trust him rather quickly, considering she had just run into him. Other than that, great story!
Great story! You had a nice style of writing. The song fit in perfectly, how you dispersed it. Again, really nice!
Author's Response: Ahhh! Another reviewer...Woohoo! Thanks for taking the time to review!!! Hmm, I really liked the song and the story fit very naturally.
Summary: Written in response to Winter Snows Challenge Three: A Kiss for the Ages.
HBP SPOILERS! A tale of Hufflepuff romance, one concerning Susan Bones and Justin Finch-Fletchley. Itís witty, itís romantic, and itís Hufflepuff! What more could you ever seek (plus a little bit of fluff)? If you watch Chamber of Secrets, you'll notice that Susan and Justin are standing NEXT TO each other in the Dueling Club scene! Coincidence? I think not.
Nice little fluffy story for the holidays! It was really cute, nice job!
