Wow. It's been a while. But I'm still alive, and now that I've finally got the net in the apt., I read all those wonderful reviews that have been left for me since May and before!
I adore all of the HP world. It really makes me want to buckle down and keep writing on my real novel. As per usual, I will make sure that this site (after my live journal) is the first to know once I get a publishing deal. Because I would be so flattered if since you spent so many hours and gigabytes supporting me online if you'd spend fifteen or so of your hard earned dollars (and a few more of your hours!) to read my real 'no pen-name required' novel.
Feel free to keep up with me via live journal (user name bartender713), but I will warn you- I am a 23 year old graduate student. Contents of my personal life may very well be not suitable for children, so read at your disgression. If you want to know whether you're old enough to read about my personal life, well... if you have to ask, you're probably not :-)
See you on the book shelf!!

Summary: What happens when you cross Ginny Weasley with the death of Harry, a tyrannic Voldemort, unwanted fame, and the betrayal of her best friend? You get a very pissed off Ginny, with an agenda for revenge.
A dystopic version of what happens after the final battle, and a bad (in a good way) Ginny that certainly takes her revenge on Voldemort in spades. The 'girl-power' super heroine you've all been waiting for- brought over from another site due to popular demand!
All lyrics are copyrighted by the band Garbage, and no infringement is intended- I thank them for inspiring this plotbunny!
Summary: Oh, I'll tell you a tale of a sainted wizard, of his friends and their adventures in store. And I'll tell you a tale of an evil wizard, of the decimated world torn apart by his war.
But be warned, I say, think not far ahead. For where you might see gain, loss may be instead.
Heavily run the theories and conclusions dreamt out of whims, but know that what you hope lies most likely not within.
She's written the words, and told the lot of trials, tribulations, and soul-eating rot.
But I won't tell you how, and I won't tell you when. Just know your illustrious Bartender has done it yet again
What lies Beyond the Prophecy and Harry Potter's life- who knows? Only the exalted one, Merlin, and the one who writes.
Summary: Year six begins in the_bartender's crazy concoction that is the life of Harry Potter. Add one part Harry, two parts prophecy, a mixture of Ron and Hermione, a dash of Ginny, a splash of Dumbledore (and garnish with a certain new knightly character to add a little mystery!)...
Pour over the ice in Lord Voldemort's heart and voila!
You've got yourself a Power of the Prophecy Cocktail, sure to mess you up, spin you around, make you question your motives and turn your wizarding world up-side down.
Summary: A continuation of "The Mystery Letter", Harry's summer presses forward with a few more surprise guests (although some unwanted), and his relationship with Ginny begins to grow.
Rated "R" for later chapters, but it's all innocent at the beginning... haha, famous last words.
I can't stress enough that you might want to read "The Mystery Letter" before continuing on to this fic. You should be able to follow without it- but it will certainly clear up some things in the process. Thanks for reading!!
Summary: One Shot: "...I can no longer handle this. Why did my life have to turn out this way? Iím young, after all, and I know that it is hopeless. Either way, I shall die, so what is the point?"
A boy turns to desperate measures to avoid his pre-determined fate.
"...Iíll end it all, before he has a chance to."
Summary: Harry receives a mysterious letter from Ďa friendí confessing their kept secret feelings for him. Harry thinks he knows who sent the letter, but complications arise when he returns to Grimmauld place, the summer after 5th year. Will Harry finally get the woman of his dreams? Only if he is quick enough to figure out who she really is!
