Real name: Unknown
What I like to do: I love to listen music (yeah, cliché, I know), to write (what a genius), and to dive, whether it is free diving or scuba diving. I actually have my PADI Open Water license! That will allow me dive anywhere (although a river full of piranhas could prove to be a really bad idea ^_^' ).
Beta?: Yes, I am a beta Accredited by Perfect Imagination :D Well, at least I was... >.> It seems that due to inactivity my accout/accreditation got deleted. I'm still waiting a response from the admins, so I'll let you know!
Stories so far:
- "Wait for Me" (4 chapters; H/G and R/Hr)
- "Sleeping Sun" (one-shot; H/G with a bit of R/Hr)
-"As the Dusk Grows" (one-shot; J/L)
- "Come Back..." (one-shot; H/G)
- "Ocean Soul" (a one-shot about Tom Ryddle and how he lost his innocence)
- "Longing..." (My first poem, R/Hr!)
- "A Night At The Owlery" (It was a challenge entry: 'Write a scene from the books that could have been witnessed by an owl' It won the second place!)
- "Once" (My second poem. H/G)
- "Starlight Dreams" (My very belated chaptered fic).
- "Revival of Autumn" (This is a one-shot centered around Autism. For mature readers only. Not that I want to feel exclusive, but such a sensitive topic demands certain degree of matureness.)
WIP: I'm working in a long chaptered story named: "Starlight Dreams". Unfortunately, the beginning has been a tad slow given the problems of the queue and some other problems I had with chapter two, but I hope to get the rest sorted out from then on :)
Also, there's a one-shot called "Strangers" that will be submitted very soon!
Music: My favorite bands are Nightwish, Apocalyptica, Rhapsody, Avalanch, Metallica (the old one), Guns n' Roses, Helloween, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Dream Theater... and more I can't recall now.
Books: I love Lord of the Rings, and any good book I can find. It can be about anything, as long as it is worth reading.
Instruments: I play piano, and a little bit of guitar, drums, but right now, one of my most desired ambitions is to learn how to play the cello.
Useless fact: Oh, and by the way, my first language isn't english, so please forgive me if you find any horrible spelling/grammar/punctuation mistake.
Recommendations: I want to recommend Narwen3's story: "To See You Through The Dark". It's an excellent story (not to mention completed)! You will surely have an incredible time reading it. Don't forget to leave your review :)
Oh, I was also beta-ing for this story: "Switched" by Cheslin. If you want a really original story, go check this one :) A story of how the cats of Hogwarts have an active life and role in the war literally under the noses of their masters :)
And at last, but not least, I would also like to recommend "Harry Potter and the Battle to the End" by lisa_lovegood (I know I haven't reviewed, Lisa, but I will!!).
All great stories :D
**NOTES**: Okay, I already got one chaptered rejected due to a too long author's note (amongst some other things. Don't think that the mods have treated me unfairly :p ). So I figured out that I could use this space to say all those things I wanted to say regarding each chapter, but that I couldn't. I warn you though, that they may contain spoilers, so only read them if you have already read the chapter.
-Chapter 1: The very first chapter (duh). I really gave a lot of thinking to this chapter, deciding if this was the way I wanted to start the story or not. I've read many stories that start with something very close to World War III, but I thought I'd prefer to start with some introductory chapters.
This chapter's purpose was to give heads up to the readers about Harry's current train of thoughts and feelings towards... everything.
-Chapter 2: Well, just for the record, I updated my lousy summary for something that is hopefully better :)
Ah, this chapter... the last 'introductory chapter' (at least in my mind. Still, this chapter hints about some... stuff that will later appear). You also get to know what's happened to Hermione and the Weasleys, what are their thoughts, etc.
Ah, I almost forgot! In this chapter you see a somewhat emotional Hermione that has a certain redhead in her head ;) Now, I'm aware that some could consider her OOC. However, I do not think she is OOC because she is a girl after all, and (in my mind) she is simply sometimes more sensitive.
In this story I'll try to show that other side the books don't show: Ron and Hermione's POV. I've always thought of Hermione as someone who, whilst it can cost her some trouble, is sensitive to her feelings. That's why I added her thoughts regarding Ron :) That's all for now (or until chapter three gets approved!).
-Chapter 3: It is not up yet, but I just wanted to explain why it has taken me such an awfully long time to put it in the site.
One reason I cannot explain at the moment... I know, I'm not being mysterious at all. It's just that I can't really say at the moment, but I will tell you as soon as I can. The next reason is that I had to find a beta! Fortunately, I'm very pleased with whom I now have the honour to work with :) And finally, the last reason is that I rewrote the whole chapter. The problem is that with the old version I never was completely pleased. Now though, I'm more than pleased with the new version! Right now it is at hands of my beta, and I'll submit it as soon as I get it.
Summary: The war is long over, and Harry is now reflecting on what his life is. But is it really what he thought it would be?
A short one-shot with Autism as the main theme. Meant for mature readers. Rating due to the sensitive topic.
Loads of thanks to Kasey for modding and guiding me with this story.
Summary: Nothing is as fragile or as powerful as a dream… That is what Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny will realize as they go through their years at school. As if life wasn't enough to deal with, the discovery of some mysterious, old books will send fear and shock through the Order of the Phoenix.
Alliances will be disbanded, and new enemies will step up. With the appearance of a new Defence Against the Dark Arts professor, whose past rivals with Snape’s, they will have to learn the meaning of trust... before time runs out.
Summary: "Because once you were mine, I cannot forget your touch"
A little, spontaneous poem Harry made for Ginny after their separation.
Summary: This is AstroFire's one-shot for 'The One-Shot Challenge - Owls', for the house of Slytherin. Edit: This one-shot won the second place!
At the Owlery, a witness of the events that took place in the Astronomy tower tells the line of events from his eyes. A night at the Owlery that none of them will forget... Please read and review!
Summary: A little poem Ron wrote in one of his History of Magic classes while Professor Beans recited with monotone voice. To who it was addressed? To Hermione, of course!
Summary: They say no one is born being evil. Is Tom Riddle an exception? A one-shot about the night a boy lost his innocence; the night everything changed for everyone. A story about how a boy turned into man... HBP spoilers. Please review. I'm very, very sorry for the weird problem with the format. It is now fixed, but I'm sorry if you had to read it without any spaces D:
Summary: The rain kisses Ginny as she stands under the stars praying for Harry's safety. He has gone to finally fulfill his destiny; to kill or to be killed. In the midst of fear and darkness, Ginny asks the night to bring him back. Will Harry come back to her? Or is his fate already decided? One-shot.
Summary: Halloween night... this is the night that changed it all. As the dusk grew darker, and all hope seemed lost, two persons faced the most feared wizard of all times. In the middle of darkness, they shed light upon the world. Please review!
Summary: The war is finally over, but the sequels are just too big to bear with. Will Ginny be able to find herself? Will Harry be able to give her the glimpse of light that she needs? Please review!
Summary: Something terrible has happened to Harry in the Last Battle. Memories flow through his mind, as he searches for help. Will he find the strength in the past he needs to do what is required of him? At what price? Please review :D
