Hey! I'm Shannon, obviously. I'm a moderator at another HP site (HPFZ). I've written several fan fictions, but only one of my longer ones has been completed. I also have a one-shot, one-chapter fic. Usually it's hard for me to read fan fictions that aren't humorous unless they're really good L/J ones. But the L/J ones I read are all by the same author, so.... =P Anyway, the link to my completed (long) fic is in my website thing, so if you want to read it, there you go. =)
Summary: Hermione Granger has never known love before. She has also never known vanity. But when her only contact outside of Hogwarts, Sarah, makes Hermione over during the holidays, Hermione becomes more aware of her appearences. However, this is not your usual "Hermione gets a makeover" story. She learns a lot during her sixth year at Hogwarts, including true love, loss, and the fact that many people will love her for who she is.
This is AU because it was written before HBP came out, so it takes place during Hermione's sixth year. However, at the end you might see a few HBP references; hence, the HBP spoiler warning. ;)
