Hello! I'm so happy to be part of the MNFF community! I've enjoyed reading many stories here, and look forward to posting many of my own.
What might you want to know about me? Well, as for hobbies, I play two instruments, dance, and keep turkeys and chickens. Of course, I love to read and write, too. Why else would I be here? ;)
I've received several questions about the timeline of my story Eyes Wife Open, so I'd thought I'd do my best to explain it here. Although it may sound counterintuitive that Dudley's grandchild could be at Hogwarts at the same time as Harry's children, it actually is possible. Here's how.
In Eyes Wide Open, Dudley's ex-girlfriend shows up on his doorstep with their seven-month-old daughter in July of 1997, when Dudley is eighteen. This means that the baby, Ella, was born in December of 1996.
Ella gives birth to Dandelion in August of 2011. This means that Ella got pregnant right around her fourteenth birthday.
According to HP Lexicon, James Sirius started Hogwarts in 2016, Albus Severus started Hogwarts in 2017, and Lily Luna started Hogwarts in 2019. Since Dandelion was born in 2011, that means she started school in 2022. At that point, James would have been a seventh year, Albus would have been a sixth year, and Lily Luna would have been a fourth year. Thus in Dandelion's first year, all of Harry's children were in school with her.
Summary: Dandelion Dursley is heartbroken to leave her mother and beloved grandfather, Dudley, to start her first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Little does she know that she will blossom in her training as a witch, discovering that she has a highly rare magical talent. She will also befriend The Forgotten Ones: Lily Luna Potter, Albus Severus Potter, and Hugo Weasley.
Summary: He never was sure why he went to that first meeting. He gave different answers to different audiences. To some, he claimed it was to show that he was different from his father, to break with the family legacy. To others, he said that with ambitions like his, he thought it wise to take advantage of another opportunity to practice for Defense Against the Dark Arts. To yet others, he told that he had been bored that night, and welcomed the chance of an interesting diversion.
Perhaps it was one of those things. Perhaps it was none of them. Perhaps it was a combination of the three.
Perhaps it had something to do with the most infuriating, distracting mane of red hair at all of Hogwarts.
Scorpius Malfoy got a lot more than he bargained for when he went to the first meeting of the newly revived DA -- a large bruise, distraction, and a very angry family, to name a few things. Gradually, it would become apparent that he gained something, something like friendship and perhaps more.
Would he be ready to embrace it? Would it be worth it?
Summary: Mrs. Weasley has always treated Harry Potter as another of her sons, but her relationship with Ron's other best friend has had more low points. In early July at Grimmauld Place, Molly Weasley has a much-need conversation with Hermione while she knits.
Summary: She was the love of his life, and they had an affair that lasted over two decades. Why did she break it off?
Nominated for Best Dark/Angsty story in the 2010 Quicksilver Quill awards.
Summary: Inspired by Lily's gloomy mood on a rainy day, Severus spots the perfect gift to cheer her up. If only he could afford it...
Summary: After young Percy Weasley uncharacteristically takes his brother Charlie's dare to sneak into Ottery St. Catchpole, he hears some Muggle children saying mean things about witches. He comes home confused. Will his father's answers straighten him out or only make him even more confused?

Summary: As he flees the scene of yet another of his parents' fights, young Severus Snape reflects briefly on his instincts of self-preservation. He isn't ashamed. He's always known he'd be a Slytherin, and Slytherins put themselves first. It's simply practical, common sense. He doesn't know everything will change in just a few hours.
Summary: Ginny and six-year-old James Sirius spend a day like Muggles. He demonstrates his lack of knowledge of Muggles in many ways, but in one area, he knows a little more than his mum...
Summary: Harry has lost so many people he loved throughout his life, most recently his best friends since childhood and his wife of many decades. Now a tired old man, he never expected that his life would begin again, so to speak, when his granddaughter tries to convince him to replace his owl.
Summary: Ever wonder how a buffoon like Cornelius Fudge got into office? It had a little to do with Dumbledore's reluctance to accept to job, and a lot to do with Lucius Malfoy's fears.
Summary: One simple incantation and you will enter a top-quality, highly realistic, thirty-minute daydream, easy to fit into the average school lesson and virtually undetectable (side effects include vacant expression and minor drooling). Not for sale to under-sixteens.
