I'm a former moderator here at Mugglenet Fan Fiction. Now, I'm a paralegal who wishes she had more time for fan fiction. Maybe someday I'll write an alternative, Deathly Hallows compliant, ending to Do Be My Enemy for Friendship's Sake.

I would love to find a Tom Riddle/ OC (or relatively minor non-OC) fan fiction where Tom is NOT OOC (out of character). Let me know if you've read/written one. Otherwise I might have to go back and finish my own. I'd rather just read a good TR/OC than write my own--less effort that way.

(Banner by me! Want one for your story? Ask.)

I encourage you to check out the stories listed under My Favorites.

Laura has been a good friend to Percy for seven years. She took his side during a fight between Percy and Oliver their second year. She accepted Percy the way he was, something most of his brothers couldn't even do. And when the one brother who did understand Percy died, Laura was there to help Percy through it, even though the death hurt her greatly as well.

Yes, Laura has been a good friend to Percy. So why, during their seventh year, is Percy allowing his friend to be lonely and miserable?

A fellow Gryffindor decides to try to ease Laura's loneliness by interfering in her life. The result is that Laura must suddenly deal with new relationships, including an unlikely reconciliation with Oliver.

Laura succeeded in being a good friend when she only had one friend. Now she must learn how to be a good friend to several people... including herself. Oliver/OC
