Wow. So once again, it has been ages since I've updated this bio. Or my fic. Maybe I should do that now?
Let's see. My name is still KD. I am still a college student who is still obsessed with Harry Potter. I have a crazy golden retriever who hides my shoes, a crazy older sister who is getting married next year, and entirely too much music on my computer. (The hard drive has already died. Twice.)
Oh, and just so everyone knows: I never, ever, ever abandon stories. Even if it seems like it. Chapter 3 is coming, I swear! Follow @kd213 on Twitter for updates!
Summary: Lily Evans is a cheeky, brainy, hopeless romantic seventeen-year-old Head Girl with a sour temper. James Potter is an arrogant, hilarious, prank-pulling seventeen-year-old Head Boy with an immature head on his shoulders. Lily loathes James and James loves Lily. Blahblahblah.
However, when a mysterious locket and a very wacked Headmaster inform the two of them that their son is in grave danger, James, Lily, and of course, Sirius, are magically transported to the future to meet James and Lily's son and the state that the magical world is in.
A twist of mystery, fun, romance and some Sirius humor! And with a wee bit of J/L, H/G, and R/Hr!
WARNING: Tree climbing Dumbledores, valuable pieces of jewelry, and an ecess of sugar are contained inside - oh, and HBP is disregarded.

I love love love this story! Only I have to read it again to reprocess everything. You're a great writer.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m glad you like it! =)
Summary: Cheers! The Marauders are in for a wild ride as they conquer hearts, pranks, and friends. But the quartet has changed... Bridget McGuire is your skinny, short, glasses-wearing, youngest child pure-blood. But after being neglected by both her mother's and father's sides of the family, she's decided that her time at Hogwarts will be a time that she will never forget and always remember.
I love it. Please keep writing!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I\'ve just submitted the next chapter two days ago, so hopefully it\'ll get out of the queue safe and sound soon!
I'm loving the story! Very creative. Just a technical note, though: In this chapter you referred to Lily as Hermione. Sorry, just my beta-ness coming out...
Author's Response: OMG!!! I totally missed that!!! lol how embarressing! Thanks so much! I don\'t have a beta for this story and have pretty much managed to skim by on my own, but since I\'m in the middle of another story that involves Hermione, I probably just got mixed up! :/ Thanks!
Summary: The line that probably best describes the legacy that the Weasley twins left behind after their Great Escape, during Umbridge’s brief rein at Hogwarts. Their legend lasted years afterwards ... but eventually, the only permanent physical reminder was the roped off corner of one corridor, containing a small part of swamp. The mystery of its origins is merely smiled at reminiscently by teachers, and the students can do nothing but spread rumours of how it came to be. When little Janey Weasley starts life at Hogwarts, the mystery is still unsolved. On a whim, and desperate for recognition, she writes home to her father, asking how it came to be. When Ron replies with the true story, a chain of events begins that might just be the making of the next true Hogwarts mischief legend ...

Haha, I love it!
Author's Response: Thanks, there are lots more, too!
Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny find themselves in a Muggle hotel in Godric's Hollow on the Winter Solstice. During an enthusiastic snowball fight, Harry and Ginny step through a stone circle that transports them seventeen years into the past. This may be the only chance Harry has to spend with his parents, and it may also be what he needs to figure out his relationship with Ginny.
The warning is for later chapters.
Edit: So, this was originally strictly a Harry/Ginny fic, but Ron and Hermione kept trying to get together too, so I felt like I had to change the category. And there's a bit of Lily/James in there too, though they're already married, and I've also added a bit of Remus/Tonks. Poor Sirius is the only Singleton (though he may manage to get a girl of his own)!
Edit: This story was cannon until after Deathly Hallows came out, so I changed it to Alternate Universe, but it's still pretty close to cannon. Only a few things will end up being different when the story ends.
Edit: I've changed all of the chapter titles to the titles of Christmas songs that I felt reflected the events in the chapters best. Tell me what you think! Does it fit?
I haven't cried so hard in ages. It actually felt kind of good. Love the story, by the way!
Summary: Minerva McGonagall comes of age during turbulent times, marked by a horrific Muggle war and the cunning predations of a malevolent, long-lived warlock named Grindelwald. Her own life is marked by struggle: her mother's mysterious mental disturbance; her friends' troubles, which she feels bound to ameliorate; and the looming responsibilities she faces as sole heir to Connghaill Keep. This book, the first in a series, records her last carefree summer and her first year at Hogwarts. The series itself, titled "Before the Beginning", follows Minerva through her formative years,from 1936 through 1945, the end of both the Muggle war and Grindelwald's freedom, and the rise of a new Dark Lord.
The milieu, the protagonist and most of the characters belong to Jo Rowling. The plot is my own.
Thanks to my most excellent Scots, Brit-picking, and history-savvy beta, Ewan Munro. I owe him much more than thanks. Here's to you, Ewan! Most patient beta a girl ever had.
This story is wonderful. You're an excellent writer, and the plot is amazing.
Author's Response: Thanks, KD. Two more books to go. Hope I can keep up my end.
Summary: If you're looking for the usual James-loves-Lily-but-Lily-hates-James storyline, then this isn't it. The thing is, Lily doesn't hate James at all, he can just be annoying at the best of times. As she comes to realise why she doesn't hate him, it leads to the famous love we all know about. Set against the backdrop of a warring magical world where nothing is certain, can James and Lily hold onto each other and fight?
UPDATE August 08: It's FINISHED! Thank you so much to all those who have read and reviewed this story, I have loved your support. i hope there are still people out there who are willing to read it. Keep an eye out for more stories by me! UPDATE February '08: I have changed the chapter names of some of the 'Defied' chapters, to make this fit and to make it more plausible, as I see the 'thrice defying' of Voldemort as happening when James and Lily are part of the Order of the Phoenix.
UPDATE 20th September: I have altered my facts in the chapter 'Once Defied' as I made mistakes in the ages of James and Lily. It didn't matter so much in this chapter but had annoying repercusions for future chapters. It should all now be correct.
Oh, you evil, evil person. Haha. No, I would have ended the chapter in the same place if I were writing this.
Author's Response: hehe! you gotta love the tension ... glad you liked it! thanks for the review :)
Summary: One hot summers day, all is unusually peaceful for the Marauders, as they laze about in the Grounds. Of course, they can’t possibly stand for that sort of thing, so James decides to begin a word game with his friends that ends up with Lily being kissed, Sirius running for his life, and Dumbledore remembering his youthful days ... it could only happen to the Marauders!
Now available as AudioFiction Episode #100!
Wow. I must add this to my favorites and save it for posterity...
It was hilarious!
Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m glad you liked it so much! Honoured to be in your favourites, it\'s always an honour. Thanks for reveiwing!
Summary: It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.
If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.
This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)
EXCITING NEWS! "The E-Journal of an Evil Janitor" is now continued as a Twitter blog! Go to Twitter dot com and find thedarklord666. Voldy's waiting!
Author's Response: Awww, thank you!

This is the story of four boys. This is the story of a boy from a family he wants to escape from. This is the story of a boy who is from a family he loves deeply, but lacks the gift of a best friend. This is the story of a boy who has been living with a curse his entire life, fighting to overcome it. This is the story of a boy who wishes to show people what he can do.

Yay, they finally snogged! Haha. Loveing it so far, by the way!
Author's Response: Well, not technically 'snogged' just a kiss on the cheek. The snog is coming in a few chapters. Thanks for reading!
Summary: Harry and Ginny are happily married with a baby on the way. When they manipulate Ron and Hermione into both meeting them for lunch, the last thing anyone expected was for Harry and Ginny to be kidnapped.
Suddenly Ron and Hermione are left with nothing more than a note and the realization it’s up to them to follow the clues and rescue the couple they both love and adore. If only the clues weren't nonsense. If only they knew who could possibly have taken Harry and Ginny. If only they didn’t hate each other. If only they hadn’t once loved each other.
Life just got a whole lot more complicated for Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
"Harry was right: there was no such thing as understanding girls, no matter how old a bloke got."
Oooooh, bad bad baaaaaaad place to stop! Update soon??
Author's Response: I know -- I\'m sorry! And I will try and update soon!
Summary: A message, written in what appeared to be a large quantity of blood, was daubed across the wall. In dripping bright red letters Neville read “THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS IS NOW OPEN. FLEE, MUDBLOODS, OR DIE.”
In the first sequel to Neville Longbottom and the Philosopher's Stone (prior reading recommended), Neville, the Boy-Who-Lived, enters his second year at Hogwarts, and confronts prejudice and discrimination in the wizarding world and an ancient threat to Hogwarts itself.
How will Neville face these challenges and what new secrets will be discovered? Welcome to Year 2...
This story is great. love it!
Author's Response: Thanks! Keep reading!
Summary: Voldemort has been defeated, but that doesn't mean life will be simple or easy for Harry...
I love it! The perfect balance of humor and... not humor.
Summary: Join the Marauders and Co. as they embark on their journey at Hogwarts. Mourn with them in times of pain, go along on their many harebrained schemes, laugh at their many jokes and most of all, enjoy!
Love it love it love it! Double thumbs-up.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I love reviewers! Expect more from me!
Summary: Fred thought that death would be more exciting than an uncluttered bedroom.
First Place in The Next Great Adventure prompt in the Autumn Challenge of 2007!
This was a great story, not overly sentimental or anything. I've been really sad since J.K. killed Fred; thanks for making me feel better!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed it. :) I\'ve never been good at writing sentimental or angsty fics, so I rather like this one...
Summary: It's Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. As an orphan, he has bounced backwards and forwards between his grandmother and his godfather. Follow him on a journey where he discovers the values of friendship, family and love, along with fighting the prejudices against his father, and getting through Defense Against the Dark Arts, with a teacher who just seems to hate him for no reason...
*DH spoilers, obviously*
NOTE: I am sorry, but I have left this site, due to lack of time and personal issues concerning RL and the site. This story is discontinued here, but may well be posted elsewhere in the future.
Nice chapter! Prejudiced people annoy me. Can something not horrible or life-threatening but funny happen to Edith soon?
Author's Response: Well, not soon, but in time...
HI, Evie and Kevin! :) I love the story so far. But poor Teddy! Can he punch Edith in the next chapter? Please please?
Author's Response: LOL, nah, our Teddy can\'t hit a girl!!\r\n\r\n~Evie
Summary: A Marauder-era fic - this story takes a look at all the characters we've come to love (and hate), as well as an OC or two thrown in for good measure. Follow the Marauders through seven years at Hogwart's, with appearances from the infamous Black sisters, Lucius Malfoy, Regulus Black, and of course the one and only Severus Snape.
There are a bunch of pairings in this story (although romance is not necessarily the central theme) to include James/Lily, Lucius/Narcissa, a splash of Lucius/Bella and unrequited Snape/Lily, and finally, plenty of Sirius/OC. Enjoy!
Over 120,000 reads! Wow! Thanks everyone!
Nice! Go Anne!
Oh no, a cliffy! Haha.
Anyway, I really like this story. Keep writing and I'll keep reading!
Awww, so sweet. Sirius and Anne are a great couple. Anne has got to be one of my favorite original characters.
