I'm Pooja, a twenty-two year-old Indian. I'm a die-hard fan of Harry Potter, a
Shahid KapoorVarun Dhawan lover, and very proud Hufflepuff.
I'm in Med college now, and I stay away from home. I really hope to continue writing even after I become a doctor. :)
I'm fond of reading, singing and six years ago, I discovered my fondness for fanfiction writing too. I'm much better now than I was when I came here, but I still think there's much room for improvement as far as my writing is concerned.
My all-time OTP is Ron/Hermione. I love this couple to death, even with my limited number of stories about them.
I am slowly starting to try stuff I've never tried writing before. I find that I quite enjoy writing slash these days.
Anyway, here are some of my stories, sorted out for you:
I've got two series out here. The first one is a trio era series (though the sequel to the first novel is OC based) and the second one is next-gen. Here's some information about these:
1. TRIO ERA (PRE-DH)
Ha! I don't have a name for this one. I think I should come up with one soon, though. This series is COMPLETE.
Killer Instincts: Complete, with H/G and R/Hr as the primary ships.
Where Are You? Complete. This is the sequel to KI but it only follows my OCs from Killer Instincts-- Daisy, Chris, Cheryl and Pari. Yes, it's a completely OC based story.
Companion fics (one-shots, all featuring Anurag Krishnan):
a. Mum's the World (pre-WAY)
b. Face Value (pre-WAY)
c. At the End of the Tunnel (post-WAY)
2. TRIO ERA SERIES (POST-DH)
This is a recent series of mine and it complies with DH, as opposed to the Killer Instincts series.
Plum Cake: This takes place during DH. It's Hermione's birthday in 1997, and the trio is camping.
Ready or Not: H/G + R/Hr, and I'm currently writing this fic. It's going to be novel-length. It's a romantic mystery. :)
Lilttle Angel Wings R/Hr story, depicting their marital problems. Complete.
3. YEARS FIVE AND SIX: SCORPIUS MALFOY, ROSE WEASLEY AND ALBUS POTTER
Black With a Hint of Red A mystery novella which was written for a challenge. I must say, I'm rather proud of this one!
Transcendent Affection: The sequel to BWHR, with a few other twists. This is a mystery too.
4. ROSE AND SCORPIUS SERIES
His Hero: Rose/Scorpius one-shot.
I Know Why You Smile: Scorpius and Rose encounter some relationship problems. (Scorpius/ Rose and Scorpius/Victoire)
Coup de grace: Incomplete, on an indefinite hiatus but I don't think I'd label it 'ababdoned' YET.
When the Rose Fell: I'm co-authoring this with my sis, Nadia/majestic_ginny. It's a Scorose. :)
There are some really old ones here and that is not what I write like now. :p
Plum Cake (R/Hr)
A Stolen Kiss (Cedric/Penelope)
It's Called Sweet Vengeance (R/Hr)
The Champion (Cedric Diggory)
The Crush (Seamus/Lavender)
Inside Out (Padma/Penelope)
Inanity Over a Hairstyle (Ginny)
Battered Heart (Hugo/OC)
His Hero (Scorpius/Rose)
Cold Feet (Scorpius/ Hugo)
Eastern Dawn Stars (Scorpius/ OC)
The Maimed Reflection (Albus Potter)
Mum's the World (Anurag Krishnan-- my OC)
Sapphires (Various Pairings)
Rubies (Sequel to Sapphires, various pairings)
Princess (written for an OC challenge, Dark/Angst)
Face Value (Sequel to 'Mum's the World, Anurag Krishnan, other pairings
At the End of the Tunnel (Anurag Krishnan, spoils Where Are You?)
Now, I haven't got very good stuff here. My best is 'While He Leaves'. The rest probably aren't even poetry with the haphazardly fashion that they've been written in. Anyway--
While He Leaves (R/Hr)
Fun in the Romantic Rain (R/Hr)

Thank you for stopping by! Please review my fics, if you read them!
A short breather from the war and the wedding...Molly is in her rocker, in her Prewett heirloom eye mask.
Ron and Hermione are in the window seat, discussing rain, honeymoons and stilettos and... that thing they really should get to discussing.They do get to discuss it.
And Molly had a treat.This was an entry to the first Skele-Gro Challenge at MNFF Betaboards.
Loved it, of course. Rain is very romantic, I say. I had Ron and Hermione dance in the rain, in one of my fics. But the fic is really cute. I really
Summary: Hermione mourns herself, along with those who fell...
Oh my... that was a sad story. I can understand how Hermione would have felt- the whole house could hear my gasps even as I read through this. What happened to Harry, though?
Ron's head exploded? *Widens her eyes and promises herself never to imagine such things*. I can't imagine that, I won't! But the story was well written. You've used really strong words. I liked it, even though I'll have to read something humourous, just now (or else I'll have bad dreams).
Author's Response: Sorryfor the graphics, I thought it gave it more...impact. Thanks for the review!
Summary: Prim-and-proper-and-tough Lily.
She was only shaken once.Not by James’s romance, nor by Voldemort’s evil antics, but by that little joyous miracle called ‘motherhood’. And in her case, it had nothing to do with erratic hormones and mood swings.
LucillaJoanna of Hufflepuff tells in this story how the mother of a destined hero feels, her perplexity of whether To Laugh or Cry.
This one is written very artistically, I'll say. Jo has actually given us only one clue about James and Lily's characters, and you have dug out an entire story, abiding very well to the characterisation. Then again, you have also written about the feelings of a mother, a bride and a lover, all in one stories. You have used very strong words, which are very efficient in displying the emotions and feelings of the characters. I'll go far enough to say that this is one of the best fics in this site.
Author's Response: thanks, pooja! You made me very happy with this review. *squee*
Summary: What if Hermione was in Slytherin? Would things have changed?
I don’t think so.She would be a Slytherin Princess, still as golden, only more cunning and less conventional.
In this story, let her teach you in gaining influence over the very people who crave it.LucillaJoanna of Hufflepuff is here playing Lachesis for the May One-Shot Challenge...
...And won Second Place!(Rating only for mild language)
Great one! You're right, Hermione fits into all four houses. She's a classy invention of JKR's, seriously. I loved the characterisation. I also enjoyed the argumentative scenes with Draco. Really well done. It looks as if you explored something that JKR never mentioned in her book. I would have believed it all to have really happened in the Potter world, if it were not for Hermione's Sorting.
Author's Response: Thanks, pooja! *hugs* I also enjoyed the bickering scenes so much, hehe!
Summary: We all know that Ronald Weasley was sorted into Gryffindor. But what if he was placed in Ravenclaw?
Ronald Weasley is at the top of his class, and even has the best girlfriend a Head Boy could ask for. His smarts make him enemies, and a certain Gryffindor loathes and detests him for an old feud that never died out. Will Ron be able to come to his senses before his situation turns for the worst?
Haha, that was nice. I can just imagine Ron as a Ravenclaw... but he's more fun as himself, isn't he? I mean all his senseless naive comments and all... good job, Lindsey! Go Hufflepuff!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I\'m so glad you like it! ~Lindsey :)
Summary: In this sequel to ‘Glories of the Enternet’, my other fiction about Ron finding a box that can allow you to access the internet, finding a website that we ALL know quite a bit about, he discovers things that make him tick.
He has finally started to read our best fan fiction. Venture into this story as he finally finds out what Voldemort does when he’s not terrorising Harry, how Harry came to be, and a relationship tragedy that may drastically change his mind about marrying Hermione.
Make sure that you make your text larger if you’ve been reading for too long.
Ooh a sequel *squee!* I love this! Ron's suspecting Harry. And he's not seen slash yet? Well, I'm thankful then. I shudder to think of his reaction! Good fic!
Author's Response: Ha ha, Slash . . . yes, that shall definitely be interesting . . . *shuts face* I\'m glad you liked it! ~Lindsey :)
Summary: During the Battle of Hogwarts, almost all in the side of the Light fought for love.
And in the middle of the scurry and flurry and before the outright fury of the confrontation, Harry’s two best friends come upon their own piece of the revered word and its many-fold but meekest meaning.Don’t let my artsy summary fool you. This is my one true pairing, pure and simple, and the events that just piled on top of each other leaving Hermione with no other inclination than to finally fling herself to Ron for that Kiss.
~Written as a present for Ginny Weasley Potter. Happy birthday, sis!
Oh, it was really beautiful. A cute DH missing moment. I enjoyed reading it. And thank you for this wonderful present! I'll cherish it forever!
Author's Response: *hugs* Thanks, Pooja! Happy birthday again!
Summary: This story begins directly after The Deathly Hallows (Pre-Epilogue). How will the trio handle the world that is waiting for them after the defeat of Voldemort. Harry and Ginny can finally move forward with thier relationship and so can Ron and Hermione. Loved ones must be barried, but lives must go on. What happens in the months following Harry's victory as the wizarding world begins to rebuild what it has lost?
Hmmm... I'd definitely like to see more... Great one!
Summary: Anyone heard those rumours about a Harry Potter musical?
It better be just like this.
No, but seriously, it's a spoof of the songs from Disney channel's infamous "High School Musical," telling the tale of JK Rowling's infamous "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." (I was dared; I took the challenge.)
You will never see the Basilisk the same way again.
P.S. You may also want to check out my Beatles and Phantom of the Opera spoofs. Just click on my username and it'll take you to my delightfully chaotic author's page.
Twice nominated for Best Poem in the Quicksilver Quills Awards!
Oh my God, it was so funny! Hehe, I'm gonna laugh in my sleep, now!!! And I absolutely love High School Musical. Only, they show it in Hindi here. I hate dubbed movies. The songs are in Hindi too. Bah! (The singers are excellent, though).
Author's Response: Aw, thanks so much! You should be glad it\'s dubbed, though-- the American singers are not very good! Except I like Ryan\'s voice... and Troy is not too bad (although the first movie had some horrible guy\'s voice dubbed over his real one-- bleh!)
Summary: It's Ron's first disastrous day working at Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes. If things weren't bad enough, a very peculiar customer shows up... post-DH,
Hehe, so funny! I really laughed my heart out.
It's awesome! Way to go! :)
Summary: This story picks up at the end of Chapter Thirty- Six in the Deathly Hallows. Do not read if you have not read Deathly Hallows. It will spoil that book for you.
Harry wants to date Ginny now that Voldemort is dead ,but how will that conflict with his new job as an Auror? Ginny has to go back to school but not before some major changes in her life.
Hermione kissed Ron in the middle of the final battle. Does that mean that they are now dating?
Ron will also have to decide if he wants to work for his best friend, or his brother, who just lost his best friend.
Arthur, Kingsley, and McGonagall all have new jobs, and someone still needs to lead the Order of the Phoenix. There are also a lot of escaped Death Eaters to hunt down.
So many answers to be had and so many more questions to be asked, you will have to read to find out.
**J. K. Rowling owns these characters and locations, I just get to play with them.**
Ahhh... just as we all put our books down, saying, "It's over. The story has finished,: you come up with a continuation!
I must say, your plot sounds really good. There are a lot of questions, actually. But the thing is, we won't know what the answer is, anyway because JKR has finished the series. You've, sort of, rubbed off the disappointment of the series ending, from my mind.
But there are a few things I'd like you to take care of- firstly, the characters were slightly OC. Like, Hermione saying, "We snogged right in the middle of a battle..." it does not sound like her. She'd probably just finish her explanation by saying that Ron should not be so overprotective about Ginny.
Then, Harry hugging Ron and Hermione when they declared that they're together. It was evident from the book itself, that he was pleased. It did not really sound right for his character.
Anyway, I hope you didn't feel bad about my criticism. Only, I love this story and hope to read it further.
Author's Response: Sorry it took me so long to respond. Thanks for the review. I am glad that you liked it and I don\'t feel bad about the constructive criticism.
Summary: Each moment is a decision, defined by the circumstances. Who knows? Had it not been for an overprotective cousin, perhaps Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy could have been the best of friends. Perhaps in one point in time and space, they are. As it happens, their relationship was defined by one catalytic factor, James Potter, and now,they are sworn enemies.
This story is a chronicle of their first year at Hogwarts, and their last. It is a tale of happenstance and familial influence, of an enmity that was not theirs to decide. Read and find out how such an enmity can influence the lives of two innocent children and wreck them. Will the injury last forever?
Due to my heavy work-schedule, this fic will be on hold till early June. My apologies to all.
Ss sorry! I actually reviewed the other day, but my computer chose to have a connectivity error right at that point of time. Grrrr...
Anyway, I like the progress in this chapter. You can see that Rose may have an every so slight crush on Scorpius- the way she's defending him and all. And James... how careless could that boy be! But then I expected Albus to have an eye on Rose at least, he's a lot like Harry- I don't think he would have minded it if Rose were friends with Scorpius at all.
It was really nice, Manu. I liked the chater! *hugs*
Hmmm, a really good beginning there, Manu. I was really happy with the characterisation all through the Prologue, and the expression of the entire snippet kept me in, throughout. I relished every word you've written, because there's something deep about your style.
And I must say, the summary is very catchy :). Anyway, I would have read this even without the summary, because your banner had my eye on this fic: I was really waiting for this (did I tell you this on the phone?)
Oh! I love this! The first next generation fic I've laid my hands on, really! *Looks surprised at her outburst*
Good luck with the rest, you have an excellent plot there! And Merry Christmas!
And I know you did not expect the review today, but I dug out some time just for this. Told my Mum that I had to, and had to read something. She had to give in, finally ;)
*hugs* I'm favouriting this!
Author's Response: *squishes Phia for the summary* Yep, she wrote almost the whole of it for me! And thank you so for taking out time. It was a wonderful surprise when I heard of it. Yes, I *heard* of your review on phone at 10:30pm from Nupur, exactly an hour after talking to you. I didn\'t believe it at all! *hugs* Pooja for ssuch an amazing review :)
Summary: “Parked all right, then?” Ron asked Harry. “I did. Hermione didn’t believe I could pass a Muggle driving test, did you? She thought I’d have to Confund the examiner.
“No I didn’t,” said Hermione. “I had complete faith in you.”
- DH P604, UK Edition
The story of how Ron learned to drive.
I enjoyed your story a lot. It is a perfect description of the Ron-Hermione relationship that I so worship and it also brings a smile, when read. It's really funny to see Ron get all confused when the car honked accidentally. Hermione's character was written very well, too. And Ron... I have no words. You could actually fool a person to believe that you are Jo!
Keep it up! The story really brightened my mood! (oh, I need a lot of mood brightening these days, because I'm becoming an angsty, snappish, irritating person with all the stress. Thanks!)
Summary: (1946)Tom Riddle is nineteen years old, and has already created four Horcruxes: the Cup, the Diadem, the Ring, and the Locket. But now he sets sail for India, to capture and tame the legendary snake Nagini, in the hot deserts of Rajasthan. India, currently under the British rule, is unfamiliar to him, and he needs a guide.
Anupama Patil is the perfect woman for him. Nineteen herself, only she has the power to make this handsome young man angry. Only she can resist his charms...but will he be able to resist hers?
Violence is ripping across the country as the natives try to drive the British out. In the middle of this havoc, can two teenagers fulfill their wishes?
Good job! I especially liked your description of us Indians as 'gold-skinned and raven haired people'. But wasn't Kalinag supposed to have five heads? Uh... I'm confused, I guess I'll refer to my book of Krishna stories... *blushes*. Well, now I'm really ashamed of myself... but nice introduction you've got there!
Author's Response: Pooooooja!! *huggles* Oh, Kalinag in this fic was named after the original many-headed serpent, Kalinag, so you\'re not wrong! Thanks a lot! *huggles*
Hey, I really like this story! I'm gonna add it to my favourites!!!!
Author's Response: *huggles* Thanks! Chapter 2 got rejected because of ellipses or something...>.<
Summary: Old memories in a shoe box, smiles and jokes never to be heard again. Fred Weasley left a place in all of our hearts. Molly and Arthur realize that Heaven needed a hero. A hero like Fred.
MJ, it was very beautiful... I have no words. As I told you, Fred's death did leave me numb too, and he's only a piece of fiction, when you think of it! I loved this story. It got me a last glimpse of Fred, a character whom I really miss. Well done! :)
Author's Response: Thanks Pooja! I'm glad that you liked it! => Happy Holidays!
Summary: Nineteen years had passed since the battle at Hogwarts, and all had been well. Harryâ€™s children had started attending Hogwarts. It is Albus Potterâ€™s first year, and with it starts a new adventure: the Triwizard Tournament is about to start, and Albus finds himself more involved in it than he would have liked.
Join Albus and his gang, which includes his cousin Rose Weasley, a Death Eater's son by the name of Scorpius Malfoy, and Muggle-born Andrew Strathmore, as they find themselves in the midst of danger as soon as their first year starts at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. EDIT: This story is abandoned, and is in the process of being rewritten with an older Albus. I realized that having a first year in the TWT wasn't the best idea :/
Nice story you've got there, bon! I like the plot and I like Andrew! I like Neville's role, too! Update soon, hon!
Author's Response: Sure, Pooja! I'll try to update soon, let my fic come back from my beta... I have finished writing upto chapter 11...so I'll try to post it all quickly!-----Nadia.
Summary: This is my blatant attempt at romancing my favourite man. It is sung to the tune Santa, Baby.
I am Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry for the Winter Snows Extra Credit- Christmas Carol Parody.
Carole, oh, this one really made me laugh and want to hug you at the same time! It was very well written, flowing well with the rhythm, and I've now heard you sing it too!
Aww... it was very, very nice, honey, I must applaud tis one. You are good with the rhymes!
And you want Sirius badly, don't you? :) Good job!
Author's Response: *grins* Thank you for the review.
Yes, I want Sirius Black quite badly and now I've declared it in audiofic form as well. I'm just shameless.
I'm glad you enjoyed it. Carole xxx
Summary: “Hello again. It is your friendly time travelling witch. I have once again decided to take you on a trip through time.
Today we will be travelling back to the day Lily and James got married.
I must once again ask you to buckle your seatbelts, it may be a bumpy ride.”
This is a companion piece to my story, A Torn Photograph. Though each can be read on their own.
Hmmm... I enjoyed this fic. It moved fluidly, and captured James and Lily's emotions very well. Your writing style has clarity and sharpness to it, and the flow of words is very good. The plot was well formed and the moods were well captured. :)
However, I think you've missed out on Dumbledore's characterisation. I would have suggested a way of making it better, if it weren't that I'm bad at his characterisation myself. But I think the following line made Dumbledore seem slightly OOC-
“Lily, my dear. How lovely you look.”
Oh, and Sirius being sexy... ;)
