I'm an avid reader turned fanfiction writer who aims to one day be paid for original stories, but for now is satisfied with the invaluable reward of reviews (and three Quicksilver Quill awards). ^_^
ETA: Like Bilbo, I was There and Back Again (There being out in the non-fanfiction-world) a Writer's Tale filled with adventure, battles, and a return to the Shire of MNFF.
Mousey brown to vividest pink, Nymphadora Tonks is known for colour. Her wedding and honeymoon are no exception.
Giant spiders, malevolent bats, wizard scouts...werewolves. Tonks finds life in Hogsmeade far from simple, while Remus discovers having a partner in touch with her inner wolf complicates his mission and his heart.
Hugo doesn't remember the last time Aunt Muriel came to stay, but Rose does...

No one stole from Scorpius Malfoy unless he allowed it.
*A Scorpius/Rose Halloween story*

George uses work and Firewhisky to cope with Fred's death until a drink with a friend leads to something that dulls pain better than alcohol. Emotionally torn by grief, he struggles to allow Alicia into his life...and then comes baby....
*Winner of the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Dark/Angsty Story*
As a Chaser for the Harpies, Angelina Johnson is used to chasing goals, but when the team is sold and Blaise Zabini takes over management, she feels more like a Quaffle...and one that might not mind being handled.
Instead of a romantic sail along the coast of Zanzibar with his fiancée, George got a fishing trip with a Slytherin.
*A "honeymoon" missing moment from For Bitter or for Worse.*
He stared down at the drying pool of blood on the floor and thought with grim satisfaction, I am not so easy to kill.
Severus Snape leaves his old life behind, taking with him the hope that one day Nymphadora will follow.
Precious to me, cute as can be.... Tonks was supposed to be with Teddy at her mother's. Why couldn't she stand waiting? What caused her to look 'anguished'? Not a deathfic, just a possible explanation of why Tonks 'sped off' to find Remus.
When widowed Headmaster Phineas Nigellus commissions a private portrait, children and unexpected emotions complicate his elaborate plans for a simple seduction.
*A Victorian romance with a Christmas epilogue*
Dunderhead students. A clumsily-handled Auror assignment. Snape and Tonks each have a bad day that gets better once they're together.
* Follows Sweet Anger and Too Much is Never Enough*
She was stuck with limp, mousey brown hair.
Tonks didnít scream the way she once would have. Instead, she felt bleak satisfaction. This is what grief looks like, she thought. It isnít pretty.
Tonks' trouble with her Metamorphosing? It's complicated.
My affinity to the journal compels me to keep it at hand. I, too, am rather shabby, and yet there are pages of my life still unwritten.... Remus reflects on his life and love for Tonks in a companion fic to Moonlight and Shadow that parallels chapter nine onward.
Tonks' world has fallen into shadow. Voldemort has returned, the Order of the Phoenix has risen, and Sirius is slowly drowning in memories and Firewhisky. Tonks needs more than determination to fight the darkness. She needs Remus.
Loss is a suitcase fastened with string tightly knotted.... Remus prepares to leave Grimmauld Place.
Return to me, from beyond the veil, across the sea of darkness that divides us.... When Sirius falls, his lover repeats a phrase that is both plea and prayer. Return to me....
Valentine's Day, 1996. Grimmauld Place is far from Tahiti, but with a Polynesian dancer costume, some sand, and a tropical dinner for two, Cami finds it's easier to create a romantic atmosphere than fit what she loves about Sirius onto a Valentine card.
Severus wasn't a white knight content to be ennobled by the purity of his affection. He felt more like a black knight, greedy to possess his lady fair. Although he was willing to terrorise peasants and burn villages to complete his quest, could he slay the dragon of pride to make a romantic gesture?
When Snape catches her in a compromising position and revokes Hogsmeade privileges, Tonks sees red. She plans payback and discovers that while revenge is supposedly a dish best served cold, it tastes even better hot.
*Not the usual 'Don't Stand so Close to Me' variety romance.*
