Hi, I'm Lyra. Pronounced 'Leer-a.' Not 'Lie-ra.' It's not my real name :P
I'm a college sophomore studying Romance languages and education. I used to be an English major but academic writing took up too much of my free-writing time :P Since first grade I've wanted to get published. My life goal is to get one novel published, and once that happens I'll shoot higher. p>
I got into the HP fanfiction craze after I finished DH and craved more HP. After seeing OotP, I became a huge Bellatrix fan upon seeing Helena Bonham Carter's fantastic portrayal of her and couldn't resist writing my own fic about her!
Favorite Books (in order): 5, 3, 4, 7, 6, 2, 1
Favorite Movie (sort of in order): 7 pt 1, 1, 6, 2, 7 pt 2, 4, 3, 5
Favorite Characters: Hermione, Bellatrix, Tonks, Narcissa, Andromeda, Sirius, Ginny, Luna, Remus, Hagrid, Fred, and George.
Favorite Ships: Remus/Tonks is my favorite. I support Luna/Neville (is it just me, or does it seem like everyone except Jo shipped them?). I ship all the Black sisters with whoever they're really with (Narcissa/Lucius, Andromeda/Ted, and Bellatrix/Rodolphus--NOT Bella/Voldy). Also, Hedwig/Pidwigeon is adorable, as is Lyra/Theodore (read 'Daughter of the Dark Side!')
Ship I Dislike: BELLA/VOLDY! Voldemort can't love; he would never be with Bellatrix!
The main reason I joined MNFF is to post Daughter of the Dark Side, my AU fic about how the series would turn out if Bellatrix had a daughter. I wrote it from Summer 2007-Spring 2008 as a way to cope with post-Deathly Hallows stress disorder. If you like the Black family, you will probably enjoy it!
At this point I've pretty much moved on from fanfiction, but I will still respond to every review I receive. Thanks for continuing to read my stuff after so many years!
About my stories:
Daughter of the Dark Side: My main fic. It is centered around Lyra, the daughter of Bellatrix and Rodolphus Lestrange. It was chosen as a featured story, so I'd say it's worth checking out.
A Torn Family's Fate: A poem about the members of the Black family and what happened to them.
Not All Stories Have A Happy Ending: Read this if you're a fan of Teddy Lupin and felt terrible that he never got to met his parents! It involves the Resurrection Stone...
The Marauders: A poem about what happened to the Marauders throughout the whole series.

Lindsey Tonks appears to be a normal, almost invisible Hogwarts student, but underneath her is someone far from normal. What the world doesn't know is that Lindsey is the daughter of two well-known imprisoned Death Eaters, and has an identity she must hide from the world. Underneath Lindsey is a girl named Lyra Lestrange, a girl who is meant to be a secret forever. But will it last forever?
*Begins in GoF and follows the series through DH.
**Will appeal to fans of the Black family! Prominent characters are Bellatrix, Tonks, Andromeda, Sirius, and (to an extent) Narcissa.
Part Four Synopsis:
It's the summer after Albus Dumbledore's death, and the whole world is falling to Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Broken-hearted Lyra, unable to return to Hogwarts, must go into hiding with her family. It doesn't last long, and eventually Lyra is faced with a choice: join or die. Lyra's decision comes with many surprises, including a new ally who follows her to the final battle of good versus evil. While Lyra's path may seem clear, she finds herself torn between two sides for the final time, and in the end, despite tragedy and loss, Lyra accomplishes the impossible...which defies all of the agreements she and her family ever made.
Three years later, the fic has been completely finished! Enjoy reading it without having to wait for new chapters. Thanks to those who patiently waited and faithfully reviewed!
Each member of the Black family had their own fate, whether it followed or went against the family's beliefs.
Summary: Eleven-year-old Teddy Lupin is having a bad day when he wanders into the Forbidden Forest. There a strange event happens and he meets people he never thought he would see...
Do not read if you have not read Deathly Hallows!
Summary: Remus, Peter, Sirius, and James were best friends, but this didn't last forever. The story of the Marauder's summed up in a poem...
