(Banner by the lovely, Caren H *hugs* Thank you!)

My name is Megan Shafer and I live in Southern California. I enjoy reading Harry Potter as well as writing Harry Potter fanfic. Unfortunately upon coming back to MMFF after a two year break, I promptly deleted my five site-published stories. (*cringe-high school writings...*)

Pending some pretty grueling do-overs, I may republish my main fiction -a Marauder Era/ OC-centric story I callled "Bad Moon Rising." (@ my once regular readers, *hugs*)

Anyway, about myself:

I am in fact married to RJL. (See missing chapter of Deathly Hallows)
I live in a fairly quiet Southern California city.
I have three siblings, all who don't care for anything HP, all who I regularly remind are philistines, in the case.
I hope to someday be an arcitect or city planner.
And also to be a mother.
I love
Jane Austen
Margaret Mitchell
traveling(at least I think I would)

As for my work in progress, Chapter One of "Between the Bars" (A First War, Remus/OC Fic) should be up any day now!

Chasing A Dream by Noldo
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 23]

Summary: They looked back and had no regrets, because it was for Remus. A vignette.

10/10. I always forget home much time and effort James, Sirius, and Peter put into becoming animagi -for Remus. It's really lovely to see that put into words. Lovely, poignant, and even a little funny: "Sirius said it, when he risked life and limb — and detention — hiding behind bushes and jumping nervously at the darting shadows, just to find out how to get into the tunnel beneath the Whomping Willow. "


Andantino by Noldo
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 12]

Summary: On Andromeda and decisions and loves and regrets. Poetry, peculiar.

No fixed rhyme scheme or meter; jumps to and fro between styles rather erratically.

I have often wondered about Andromeda and Sirius' feelings after leaving there family: If they regretted it. This poem makes me hurt for Andromeda, as a sister. I suppose I am a little sentimental, but this was truly very beautiful.

I really love how you portrayed Harry. A lot of people either write him as this complete jerk, or this over-emotional head case. You've got it perfect thought, I believe. He is strong and has seen more than his fair share of war, but he is still vunerable when it comes to the people he loves. And that vunerability, for some reason I don't think that is a weakness, I think that only makes him stronger. Great! 10/10 I'll be reading more of yours soon : )

Author's Response: Awww how sweet! I\'m glad you like my Harry -- I\'m quite proud of him, actually. Thank you for reading, and even more for reviewing,


More Than a Feeling by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 268]


Severus Snape has ambitions to rise above his humble beginnings. Eris Greyback has a family debt to repay. Their romance is a more complicated brew than the trickiest of potions. SSEG, LEJP. The sequel, The Potions Master's Apprentice, is also complete.

Great chapter! Can't wait for an update!

Author's Response: Thanks! Snape definitely makes Eris work for it....once she realizes he worth the effort, LOL.

I'm captivated, to say the least! Can't wait to read on. : ) By the way, “Not feeling any urges to make a suicide pact, are you?”

Author's Response: Captivated is good! Now that I\'ve learnt you can submit more than one chap to the queue at a time, I can update regularly, which I find a lot more enchanting than infrequent posts! ^_^

Eris is such a great character. Perfectly constructed. I feel as though I can guess her reactions, yet your story isn't predictable. Perfect combination. : )

Author's Response: Thank you! If this story makes you say \'I can see how this girl and Snape could fall for each other and be good together\' , then I\'ll be a happy writer! ^_^

I saw the title of your fic, which piqued my interest, (I'm a fan of Death Cab.) But I didn't expected something as beautiful as what you've written. It reads just like a poem. It reminds me of Robert Frost for some reason, which is a great thing.I can't wait to read more of yours. ::Adds you to my favorite authors::

I was looking at your BA thread and saw that you were in need of reviews... So I figured... what the heck! I'd give you a 'welcome gift!' But I never expected this.

This is truely a fantastic one shot, here. It's so beautifully written, and horribly sad. : ( But it should be.

And, I've always believed Severus is good, at heart. So I'm very greatful that you've written this 'justification.'


And write something else, already!
