I am a recent member of the Harry Potter fandom, but I have always had a passion for the written word, and I hope to fulfill it here. I live in a relatively boring corner of Idaho, and I like Kokanee and a good book!

So, I suppose you're wondering what's up with my username. Even if you're not, this is how that happened. No, I was not aspiring to be a Gryffindor. I can't think of any house to which I would belong less than Gryffindor, in fact. It was a moment of clarity that I got while I was battling with myself about whether I should want to be Sorted into Gryffindor to be like Harry or to be Sorted elsewhere and follow my own path. I thought it to be much like the contemplative scene in Hamlet when he weighed taking his own life. I'm not trying to be melodramatic. That's simply is what popped into my head when I was trying to sign up to leave a review. :D

Any questions or comments about my work? Please shoot me an email at: tobeornottobeagryffindor@mugglenet.com — I'd love to hear from you!

Allegiance by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 4 Reviews
Summary: During his final year at Hogwarts, Draco Malfoy had few illusions about where he stood and who the enemy was. However, he never thought he might find a new friend in the shadow of all he had done and would have to do, let alone anything more.

Michael Corner had a way of shattering Draco's expectations that way.

As life at Hogwarts drags everyone further and further into shades of grey, where will Draco's loyalties lie when the lines of battle are drawn?

Never Let Me Go by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 8 Reviews
Summary:

Louis Weasley had always assumed that the worst of his problems had been falling for someone he wasn't supposed to. This was, however, until that very someone turns up missing from one the biggest societal events of the century.

He was willing to break every rule and taboo to find her, but could he succeed where the entire might of the Ministry's Magical Law Enforcement Department failed?


The Unforgiven by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 11 Reviews
Summary:

The Battle of Hogwarts brought out the best in some and the worst in others. And not everyone emerged knowing into which group they had fallen. Susan Bones was one of these individuals. But when she came face to face with one of the war's unforseen victims, she began to wonder whether she didn't truly belong in the latter category.

Then again, not all was what it seemed ” not when it came to Theodore Nott.

 

 

 

This is a birthday token for the delightful and talented Ariana/lucca4, who doesn't seem to realise quite how talented and jealousy-inducing she is. I hope her day has been half as wonderful as she is. :)


Hell's Bells by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 37 Reviews
Summary:

It was the worst news a father could receive: his son was marrying his worst enemy's daughter.

But for Draco Malfoy, being in the role of the reasonable parent was in itself a debacle as he tried to make the best of a bad situation. But when circumstances forced him to spend more time than he ever cared to with the most irritating Mudblood on the planet, he constantly questioned his sanity, as well as that of his son.

However, Draco might have come to realise that things change, as well as people. Is Hermione Granger Weasley the mad bint he remembered, or were they both a little different this time around?

This is a (slightly late) present of birthday-ness for the wonderful Sophie/the owl. She's a great writer, supreme beta, fabulous reviewer, and wonderful friend. I'm so glad we bonded over fic, because it would just be wrong to never get to know you. ♥
