Hey, all, I'm Minna. I'm a Hufflepuff over on the Beta Boards, as well as a bannerer, poet, draw-er, and drabbler.
For anyone who has gotten into Curiosity, sorry, but I think that story is well and truly dead. I've been debating taking it down off the archives, and I've been unable to quite convince myself to take it down so there it still is.
Summary: It’s been seven months since Cyril Cresswell fought in the battle that saw the end of Voldemort, nine months since he learned that the Snatchers had murdered his father, and a full year since he lost the girl he loved.
Only the girl he loved hasn’t been lost to death like his father. She’s still walking and breathing and living in her parents’ house in Ottery St. Catchpole. She hasn’t spoken to him since Christmas Eve last year. She blames him for what she’s lost.
All of this means that for him, Christmas isn’t all that merry and bright this year. He doesn’t plan on celebrating it at all. But when his father appears as a ghost in his room on Christmas Eve, he’s swept along on a journey that may just change things for the better.
Cyril has been nominated for Best OC in the 2011 Quicksilver Quills awards. =D
