Well hi! My name's Becca, I'm a Gryffindor, and I reside on the forums as twilightHPgirl18. I live in New York, I love the 1940s-'70s almost as much as I love Ashton Kutcher, and I'm actually working on an OF that takes place in 1966, and another in 1976 based on my dad's teenage life :)
My favorite bands are, in no particular order: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Bruce Springsteen, The Doors, and Pink Floyd.
I love the TV shows The Big Bang Theory, Gilmore Girls, Happy Days, Glee, Saturday Night Live (I love Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell), and Survivor.
My favorite movie at the moment is Pirate Radio (which I love oh so much), but I'm also very fond of Tommy Boy, Across the Universe, 21, The Breakfast Club, The Blues Brothers, and Grease.
My dream is to live in New York City, London, or New Haven, Connecticut. I'm just that cool ;)
It never would’ve started like that if James hadn’t insisted on his annual Christmas party. It didn’t matter that his parents had celebrated their anniversary in Ireland earlier that year so that they‘d be in town for Christmas, because there were other venues for a party: in particular, my house. My parents’ house, actually. But of course it didn’t stop there; Hugo was home for the holidays that year, his seventh year of school, which meant that his best friend would be visiting.
If only his best friend wasn’t the boy I’ve tried so desperately to avoid for two years.
This is a Christmas present for the lovely Sarah/Let_It_Be of Gryffindor for the Gryffindor 2010 Christmas Craziness Secret Swap. Merry Christmas, everyone (:
They were four of the closest friends that the Wizarding World had ever seen, but one of them was hiding a horrible secret.
This is the story of their journey to discover that secret.
This is the story of the aftermath of their discovery.
This is the story of their beginning, their youth, and their everlasting friendship.
The Marauders are the most popular boys in the school, admired by younger and older students alike. Their O.W.L.s are finished, and they’ve all passed and are ready to begin sixth year. James has decided on the career path of an Auror and is trying as hard as he can to succeed. Sirius has followed James into Auror classes, and although he’s not entirely sure if that’s what he wants to do, he figures that it‘s worth it to spend time with his best friend. Remus is all set to begin the crusade for werewolf rights, despite what people may say. Peter is pursuing the profession of a healer. The four best friends are as close as ever, now that they’ve been split up for the first time in six years, and are trying harder than ever to make school fun as they run into problems like girls, grades, and a certain Slytherin. Along the way, they’ll learn that there’s more to life than just being a Marauder.Meanwhile, Lily Evans has been considering whether or not it’s worthwhile to continuously turn James down; she knows she doesn’t want a boyfriend, but she thinks she could really use a friend. Jackie Carter cruised through all of her classes for the past five years, but keeping up with N.E.W.T. level classes is proving harder than she expected. Mary Macdonald has been having troubling nightmares and needs to find someone to talk to. Angela Hunter is realising that her father getting re-married will benefit her family more than she thought. The four girls need each other this year more than ever as they begin N.E.W.T lessons, and the impending graduation is getting closer than ever. Together, they’ll face the drama of being a teenage girl…coupled with the feelings of love and friendship. It’s a year that no one will be able to forget.
Title taken from the Thin Lizzy song of the same name.
It’s Christmastime at Hogwarts, a time of peace on Earth and goodwill towards men. When the Marauders decide to spruce up the castle and spread some holiday cheer, Severus Snape steps in to ruin their plans. Will Lily Evans manage to convince him that the Marauders are fully in the right? Or will they get detention on Christmas Eve as threatened? Find out in Candy Canes and Rudolph’s Reins.
This is twilightHPgirl18 of Gryffindor writing for the final in the MWPP class on the Beta Boards.
The gang is at Zack’s house for one final week together before they all have to go their separate ways.
They’ve proven that anything can happen in five minutes; but what can happen to them in seven days?
'Tis the companion fic to Don't Leave Just Yet. I strongly recommend you read that one first.
Ignorance is your new best friend.
Will she say it, or won’t she? You’ve been waiting for half of your life to hear her say those three words. But no. She’ll just continue to hurt you, and you know it, deep down. Know it, but refuse to believe it.
This is the story of the Hogwarts Marauders.
You're giving me such a rush.
The final five minutes of an era. Zack, Holly, Alex, and Jack are leaving Hogwarts for good in five minutes. Not much can happen in five minutes, right?
They fight. They argue. They threaten never to speak again. But in the end, it’s all alright. Because they’re brothers and sisters, or at least that’s what it feels like. James, Albus, and Lily Potter are the closest siblings you’d ever find. Rose and Hugo Weasley have their differences, but in the end, they would die for each other. And as for Scorpius Malfoy… he’s unlike anything the others have seen before. But he’s okay… because he saved them on countless occasions.
This is the story of the bonds between siblings, cousins, and friends. It’s the story of forgetting the past to create a brighter future. And it’s the story of learning to let go of the old, and holding on to the new.
