You've just come to the place where I call home. I am Azalea and I love Harry Potter. I also like carry-out (aka "carrion". Crow joke.), manga and anime, Philip Pullman, and fencing. My favorite band, hmmm, three-way tie between Nine Days, The All-American Rejects, and Lifehouse. As of right now, I have become very into Brian Froud and his artwork.
I am proudly married to Remus Lupin, Ron Weasley, and Oliver Wood, and I am a Dumbledore; according to Saphirre Isle.
I also have four older brothers, youngest to oldest, Hugh, Aeron, Gryffyn, and Gareth. Hugh is my favorite, being only a year older than me, and Aeron is the one I detest. (Think not hot Sirius Black and you've got him)
In the long run, I am a crazy teenage girl who lurves reviews and chocolate, and if you like, you can go to my LJ and read another story which probably won't be able to get into the queue in time.
Do to confusing myself, I'd like to clear this up. MY PARENTS ARE BRITISH/WELSH, I WAS BORN IN AMERICA.
Which HP Kid Are You?

Summary: Ron Weasley is getting married to Hermione Granger, so he travels back to the Burrow to tell his parents. But his father has a type of… box in the room, and Ron ventures over to find out what in Merlin’s name it actually is.
Mr. Weasley explains about the “enternet”, and Ron stumbles upon a website that we are all too familiar with…
Wow! THIS. IS. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *starts to dance*
Author's Response: A Double Review?? No. Freaking. Way. ~Lindsey :)
Lily's thoughts are a sacred place. People think that head of hers stores valuable information for he next Potions assignment but those people are so wrong. In fact her head is filled with rather rude and amusing thoughts but she's strong as steel and keeps that in her instead of out.
But the arrival of a Veela causes her blood to boil and her thoughts to rapidly twist and churn in anger and all. Not only is ths Veela pretty, and french, she's also flirtacious. A dangerous mix. So what's this got to do with anything? Well, for one she's been messing around with a ton of boys making many girls so annoyed including our Lily here. Her thoughts start to leak which equals an hour of witty comments and laughing fits. This causes many heads to turn. Including one of those with messy hair.
KEEP UPDATING!!! I WANT MORE!!! This is honestly a good runner-up to the Lily series by Secret Lily.
Author's Response: Really? I\'m so thrilled you like the Lily series so far! (I love Secret Lily\'s series.)
Summary: The last thing we do: will it be something that is filled with confessions, or regrets of never making them? Will it harbor feelings, whether loving or hostile? As Luna Lovegood reflects on the death of her first love, she knows that the last thing she'll do is never forget.
That is so beautiful! I love it, though I'm not usually a L/H shipper
Author's Response: Aw, thank you. I\'m happy that you enjoyed it.
Summary: Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed. -G. K. Chesterton
Can the hero slay the "dragon" that hunts his little girl and haunts his nightmares?
This is submitted for my final assignment in Professor Talons DADA: An Introduction to Dark Arts class.
I am proudly saluting you with the sword of Godrick Gryffindor.
A small warning, this story terrified me (and my beta) and made me cry. Read it with caution but please read it.
Oh, wow, oh oh oh oh wow. I'm impressed
Author's Response: Thank you , I really shocked myself when I pulled this off.
Summary: When Ron and Hermione have trouble sleeping they spend the whole night talking.
Awesome!!!!! This rocks!!!!!
He was Muggle-born, a Hufflepuff, and a slob. Andromeda Black could not understand why a boy with messy hair and untidy ways was so popular until she realised no one enjoyed life like Ted Tonks. It wasn't a secret that he liked her...and she didn't like his girlfriend.
Hooray! I caught onto the Princess Bride note. Fezzik is my favorite character in that movie. Besides Westley and Buttercup and Inigo, and never mind.
But your story is awesome! But then again, you're just so darn famous here, unlike me....alright, now I'm just going to pout, but I loved your story!
Author's Response: I don\'t write big category couples, so only people who read \'indie cats\' know me. I may be in the top ten of prolific writers, but I\'m nowhere near famous enough to make the popular list. :D (Thanks for saying that, though, and yay for you liking Fezzik. He was such a sweetie!)
Summary: This is what I think Ron thinks. Acrostic.
This is very amusing, and a lot like ROn, same sort of childishness about love that I would expect out of him, but he has to think about the kiss. Is that all boys think about? Snogging? According to my friend Vince, it is....but that's him, now I'm getting off track, sorry. Anyways, I really like your poem. It rocks! Like Hermione!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: As Lavender prepares for her wedding, she must put the past of her abusive father behind her, and find a way to step forward, a woman, without that figure to guide her down the aisle.
That was spectacular! Who is her right man, though?
Summary: Now for what Hermione thinks about Ron. Also acrostic
These are highly amusing poems.....I really like them......
Author's Response: Thank you! I like them too!
Summary: How does a friendship begin? Ginny Weasley, about to begin her second year at Hogwarts, is very distrustful of Hermione Granger. Having to share a room with her at The Leaky Cauldron will require the courage of Godric Gryffindor himself.
OH, that's so very cute! I like it a lot!
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: Eyes are the most expressive part of anyone's body. They are bottomless pits, conveying even your deepest and darkest secrets through raw emotion. Here is an exploration through the eyes.
What an awesome poem! I highly suggest making another for a series, but it is AU...soo, it's your desicion.
Author's Response: Thank you! I actually am adding to the series, but they are totally unrelated poems. They just all have the same \'eye\' thing.
Summary: Love - it is both Harry Potter's greatest strength and weakness. He knows this, but it takes one person to set his feet on the correct path...
How lovely! This is so well-written, one of the best stories I've read for a while!
Summary: Lily Evans loves Severus Snape. She's even on her way to break up with James. But that may all change when she hears what James has to say...
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: Harry's turn! Acrostic.
These are such funny poems! I can't wait to read Ginny's!
Author's Response: Coming soon!
Author's Response: It just has to be validated!!!
Author's Response: It\'s up (and has been for a while!)
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.
This is so cute! It made me laugh so hard when Molly wakes up!
Author's Response: I\'m glad it made you laugh, azalea, thanks! ^_^
Summary: London: Four murders have taken place under bizarre circumstances, for what seems to be an equally bizarre reason.
Harry, a happily wedded man with a wonderful wife and a cute daughter, is an Auror at the Ministry of Magic and is now given a new case to solve with Ron and four other Aurors. Incidentally, the four Aurors include Ginny, Harryâ€™s â€˜schoolboy crushâ€™; and it turns out to be much more than a crush when Harry sees her again. Whatâ€™s more is that Harry is working upon a case that seems to connect to him directly. And once again, it opens up old fears: fears of losing loved ones.
Ron, on the other hand, seems to be tired of Hermione. Tempers are running high and fights are breaking out more often than usual. Are they really falling apart? Or can they sort this out before it is too late?
Then there is the case itself. Who is trustworthy, and who is not? Who is deadly enough to murder four people in cold blood?
Indulge into the gut-wrenching action, combined with warm romance and tingling suspense; while I tell you a story of love, ambition and obsessionâ€¦ a story of what those killer instincts can do. EDIT: MAJOR revamping going on, with regard to plot, characterisation, and general style of writing. I would urge you not to read this until I've removed this notice because I wasn't very good six years ago, and this is as bad as I was. *Places traffic cones*
Hmmm, this story is quite interesting. Just a question though, how do you pronounce "Naina"? I pronouce it how my people (the Welsh) would, as "Nine-a" (yes, it does sound like "Nana" I know. Nain is what most Welsh people call their grannies). I'd just like to know.
Also, your English is very...formal and cold-sounding. There are such things as contractions, which would loosen your style up quite a bit and probably give it some more feeling.
Author's Response: Naina.. well, \'Nain\' is pronounced in a way similar to \'Dan\'. It is really difficult to get people to pronounce these correctly because of the difference in accent. The way I pronounce Dan could not be different, for one thing. My accent is too Indian because I speak a lot of Hindi sometimes. And this may sound funny, but I don\'t know much of English slang. Again, Hindi is what I have to speak, most of the times. I\'ll try to make it sound better, though! Thanks for your thoughtful comments! :)
Summary: After a physically and emotionally draining day, Ron and Hermione find themselves alone with their thoughts - and each other - in front of the common room fire.
Very sweet. I like it, it's not nearly as corny as I thought it would be

Summary: The Marauders are in third year Muggle Studies, with their latest class project sneaking up on them: ballroom. "Who cares?" they think, "Hardly any Muggles even dance; they don't even like it that much. Why should we have to deal with it?" Professor Richardt has other ideas.
I recently read back through this and cringed at how poorly written it was. I'm going to finish the sequel, and then this story is getting completely revamped. Thanks to all who put up with the poor writing and complimented it!
Alright, I'm definitely warming up to this story more, now that I've reread it, but I'd like to see you describe things more, y'know? It's ok to go overboard on descriptions! I know, I've done it!
Author's Response: Second time\'s the charm! lol I\'ll work on the description in future stories, but I\'ve already finished this one. Keep an eye out for more stories! :D
Wow! This has improved a LOT! I'm so pourd....*tear tear* Anyways, good, much better. I'm very impressed with your knowledge of the ballroom (coming from the girl who can't dance).
PS. I like the sound of Alexander :P
Author's Response: I\'ve been dancing since I was three, and I started ballroom two years ago. I didn\'t learn the tango until this year, though, so I\'m glad you thought I was knowledgeable. And I did my best to make Alexander appealing. :D
