Hello everyone who decided to grace this boring page!
I am a native Floridian, recent college graduate, happily married (even though the hubby doesn't understand the obession...)! I have been reading for years, but only recently taken a dive into writing. I'm a proud Hufflepuff and have recently taken to drabbling as well, so some of those might turn into stories as well.

This series highlights important, pivotal moments in a characters' life.
It did not start as a series, but has taken flight in my mind, and you can't really tell those things "no", can you?
Each summary is purposefully vague, for telling you the moment ahead of time is anticlimatic, in my opinion.

Why did he throw it away?!??! *Sigh* Oh, Ron...
I read this story just now straight up to Chapter 27 - and I am dying to keep reading! Doing it this way spoiled me, and I can't wait until you update! It's frustrating having them dance around it so much and repeat how good friends they are, but its probably also more realistic. I would like to see them get together soon....... :)
Author's Response: yeah realism is somthing i am going for....and i\'ll update again on saturday so you wont have to wait too long...
I LIKE IT!
Author's Response: Im glad
Summary: Harry has been waiting for over a week to leave the world of the muggles once more. Dumbledore is about to arrive and new adventures are bound to begin. This story runs directly aside HBP, think of it as missing scenes. What mysteries are held within the moments JK missed? How about these...
I loved that the dream sequence was used to help Harry make his decisions concerning Hermione and Ron! Very spot on with everyone, especially Dumbledore! Favorite line:
“Fascinating, Harry, I never knew that the logical side of your brain voiced itself using the guise of Miss Granger. Does this mean that the more uncoordinated part of your brain resembles itself as Ronald?”
There were a few places that is seemed like semi-colons and commas got mixed up; for example:
"He lived for ten years not knowing who or what he was; until one night when a lifetime of information was revealed to him." - the semi-colon should be a comma
"Harry Potter is a wizard and just like his mother and father before him, he belongs at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." - this should be a semi-colon, as the two are separate distinct clauses
"That was the reason he hadn’t told his friends, how can you tell the people you love that you have to become a murderer or murdered?" --should be a semi-colon or em dash, as the second part is a full sentence and not a phrase
There were a few others, but I wasn't sure how old this piece was...just thought I'd point it out! Very nit-picky anyways.
Summary: The war is over and both sides have had their losses. Friends and loves have been waiting for news but time is passing and there is no sign of recovery. Can a letter help with the emotional load one of our heroes is carrying?
Challenge Number Two
A one-shot liking a person or situation to shattered glass. In other words, using shattered glass as a metaphor.
Oh, that was....well, that was sort of depressing, to tell the truth! But it was also beautiful and hopeful and sweet...now I want to know the rest of the story for Harry and Hermione, and their futures. I do believe that if this is the way that things had turned out, Ginny would have stayed there and waited for him, just like she always had. Her hope at the future that she was certain they would one day have would always be there. Great work and beautiful writing!
Summary: At the end of her sixth year at Hogwarts, Hermione was hoping for a quiet summer. She just wanted to go home to spend time with her family and study before returning to the Burrow and her budding relationship with Ron. Then she started dreaming about Draco Malfoy. . . While helping Draco reach safety with the Order of the Phoenix, she finds herself in his arms. Could Hermione’s new found connection with Draco ruin everything with Ron forever?
A Hermione and Ron ship with a heavy dose of Malfoy! I've chosen to list this under Various Pairings due to the complex nature of the story. Both R/Hr and D/Hr shippers will enjoy!
I liked them together!! (in this story...I'm a R/Hr) This is a really good story and I'm going to be waiting for the update to see what happens!
Author's Response: That\'s a great compliment, since you\'re an R/Hr supporter! Thank you. I love D/Hr myself - they\'re just so much fun!
Summary: A new person comes into Harry's life; one who has ties to his parents, and to his enemies. The story starts in the summer after 3rd year and becomes AU (but just barely) at that point. Pairings: SBOC, a smattering of HPHG, some RLNT later on...
Hungry for GOOD fan fiction? Give this story a try! It will satisfy the avid fan fiction reader's most voracious appetite. It is chock full of the basic fan fiction food groups: It's got drama, romance, angst, snarky banter, mystery, Quidditch, humor, new love, old love rekindled, introspection, action...
So go on, sample a little bit... I KNOW you won't walk away feeling empty!
I really like this story so far....please keep updating!!!!!
Summary: After the downfall of Voldemort, Hermione decides to take a break and return to the Muggle world. Deciding to go on a Muggle cruise, Hermione realizes that it was the biggest mistake of her life. Now, she's stuck on a boat with her worst enemy. Fights and bickering continue to take place between them and maybe a little something else too...
Hermione makes new friends and meets up with an old friend, Jessie: an arrogant girl who treats Hermione like dirt and desperately tries to seek Draco's attention. (Slightly AU)

Please leave a review before you leave! It means a lot! You can check out the banner of this story on my author's page!
FInally! An update! I was so excited! And kudos to Hermione for dealing with Jessie...this isn't the end, is it?!
Author's Response: Oh, of course it's not the end! I wouldn't dare just finish it off with this chapter lol so don't worry. It really was about time for Hermione to step it up a little, wasn't it? Draco would've completely given up on her if she didn't! I'm really glad I was able to get you all excited about this chapter - that's just brilliant! =D Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Hermione died in the Horcruxes crusade. One year later, Voldemort was finally destroyed and Ron returned home, exhausted. His room was exactly the same as he left it. But awaiting him on his desk was a small pile of letters with a short note on top.
Mr. Weasley, we found those letters addressed to you in Hermione’s belongings. It was only fair they were returned to you. Signed, Mr. and Mrs. Granger.
That story was amazing...it made me cry! I'm really glad the real version didn't turn out that way (for obvious reasons), but I'm also glad you wrote this story...wow!
Summary: Harry witnesses a fight - and a kiss - between Hermione and Ron.
Haha, that was great! I could totally see that happening! Loved it!
So sorry to leave a 2nd one, but have you ever thought about writing Ginny and Harry's story from this context, where Ron and Herimone are already together after this story?
Summary: The war is over, and Voldemort is dead, but the aftermath isn't what Harry had intended it to be. Amid feelings he himself cannot explain, he flees to Muggle London. Can he overcome his inner demons and lead something other than the shadow of a life his existence has become?
Actually the third story in the Epilogues story arc. If you have yet to do so, please read Right Here and One Good Day prior to reading this. Upon completion of this story, you can move on to Epilogues Part II.
I almost cried....you're very good and I love your stories!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, I really appreciate it! Don\'t forget though, there is still one last chapter to go before we\'re done here! Hope to see you for chapter 6: Home
Summary: Runner-up for the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Alternate Universe
“No matter the time or place, people should never call their child Marie-Antoinette. There is no happiness in this world for a girl called Marie-Antoinette.”
1983. In a world where Voldemort has won the First War, where hope has fled from an Earth moaning under the Dark Lord's iron hand, marriages are broken and others are arranged in order to preserve the sacred purity of blood. James Potter loses his wife; now they have to find another for him.
What a great chapter!! My heart almost stopped when I saw Lily and Harry...I hope their situation improves....and the ending...great chapter! You are a great writer and I can't wait for another update!
Summary: Dumbledore is gone, or is he? Harry feels the weight of the world rests on his shoulders, but he is soon to learn that his brooding nature and desire to face his fate alone may be his greatest weakness. It is his emotions, or rather his capacity for emotion that makes him strong, and his relationships his greatest source of strength.
When the summer begins and he faces a fortnight with the Dursleys everything he knows, or rather thinks he knows comes into question. Can he... should he do this all alone? And is he anywhere near ready?
Hogwarts is to be re-opened, the Ministry officially endorsing it as the safest possible place to be. As his birthday approaches there are monumental surprises in store for Harry. Who is he really? And what about his family, who came before his mother and father? Why is the Potter name so famous, and yet so unknown?
Encouraged not to run off to face his fate he returns to Hogwarts for his final year, but surprises abound at the school as well.
Can Harry become the wizard he needs to be to face the Dark Lord? Will he let the people he respects and love really help him? And what of help from unexpected sources; sources he might never trust?
I really like this story......I'm going to be awaiting Ginny's response with bated breath! :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am very happy you are enjoying it.
I totally did not see that coming! But I like it.....:)
Author's Response: Well, that\'s good! I wanted it to be a surprise, lol. Thank you so very much for reviewing.
Summary: A compilation of the most commonly used Harry Potter clichés in the fandom. Features Angsty!Harry, Sweet!Draco, Head Dorms, sudden romances in the forms of Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny and of course, Draco/Hermione, because what's a cliché without them?
The Marauders also make an appearance in this fic, including Lily/Lily's best friend/Lily's other best friend.
Warning: mention of hippopotamuses inside.
Chapter Five is up! The story is done. Also, thank you to everyone who nominated this neatly tied bundle of ridiculousness in the QQ awards, I really appreciate it!
I think this is brilliant - I read all of the other cliche stories, and yes, I like them!! But this just makes me realize just how cliche some of them are! My favorite line:
"And with that, Hermione realised that Draco was the boy she had danced with at the Masquerade Ball."
Make me laugh for a full minute.
Author's Response: Thank you! Really? I didn\'t think that line was so incredibly funny... whatever floats your boat! :)
Summary: Ten years have elapsed since Dumbledore's death and McGonagall has Hogwarts back on its feet again. Hermione and Malfoy both teach at the school. But when a new teacher is hired to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, everyone seems to feel that they've met him before. A story of mystery, passion, friendship, and jealousy… not to mention that Harry Potter has been missing for ten years and Voldemort is dead. (All violence is mild).
NEXT CHAPTER VALIDATED
There have been errors when this story gets submitted for validation, so the mods have to do it manually. Therefore it does not show when it has been validated -- but it has!!
Thank you to all my reviewers!!!
Disclaimer: I own my imagination, JK Rowling owns Harry Potter.
This story promises to be interesting...I like!
Author's Response: yay!
TELL HER TELL HER! I am selfish, I want her to know despite the consequences for Harry. :) Great chapter, thanks for getting it up! I think Hermione will spaz (is that a word?) out when she finds out, but I think she'd rather have him tell her the truth than find out herself, which, as this is Hermione we're talking about, is bound to happen.
Author's Response: Nice theory ;)
Haha, I like that Malfoy's such a wuss...and I had a feeling who Everett was...
Author's Response: malfoy does seem to be a wuss, but he might not always stay that way... ;)
Please don't wait so long to update!!! It was great and I hope he tells he the truth...though knowing Hermione it might make her angrier. :)
Author's Response: Sorry about taking so long! The next chapter should be up soon. And yes, it might make her a teeensy bit angry haha
