Hello my darling visitors :) Yes, this is the same QueenHal who was crazy enough to take on the job of redesigning MuggleNet Fan Fiction for MNFF-2. I'm also the same QueenHal who runs the Bannermakers Association at the forums.
But as much as I love to design and make pretty pictures... I also love to write. Here you will find the cozy little corner of Haley. Er, I mean - here are the stories I've authored. I'm rather proud of everything I've posted here--but I know that they wouldn't even be here if it weren't for my darling SPEWers. How I love those crazy kids.
Lanette and her Grandmother
Spirits of the Storm - Ch. 4
Summary: At Salem Witches’ Institute, the most prestigious academy for young witches in America, only a handful of girls are selected each year. Old wizarding families groom their young daughters from birth, hoping to be one of the few who get to brag at parties in the coming season about their child’s acceptance. What actually goes on at Salem is shrouded in secrecy, but the fact that it consistently produces the best and most powerful the American wizarding world has to offer seems to have been enough for the Bluebloods for centuries.
But when Libra Malfoy, daughter of foreign diplomats Scorpius and Rose Malfoy, is accepted, she’s not sure what to make of her mysterious new school. As she begins to investigate the strange happenings at Salem, she finds herself tangled in a web of deceit and danger. Could Salem’s methods be rooted in something sinister? It’s only too possible…
Summary: If Severus Snape could remember how to cry, a rancid tear might have spilled down his cheek. But he did not cry. He only trudged on, ignoring the gaping black hole where a placid lake once resided, ignoring the ashen grounds and trees that still smoked with the memories of a great fire. He ignored the hundreds of bodies strewn haphazardly for miles. She wasn't one of them. He could still feel her heart beating.
He knows she is alive; he is drawn to her like a moth to a living flame. But when the moth seeks more from the flame than light, will she grant it?

Summary: A Post-HBP fiction.
When Harry’s quest for the horcruxes turns desperate, he leaves the security of his homeland to seek out the advice of an ancient and most unusual Council – one whose allegiance is only to themselves but whose knowledge is so vast it may be his only chance. What Harry discovers there will change everything. Soon, he comes to see that this is all so much bigger than just he and Dark Lord – his role, though pivotal, is terribly minute compared to the challenges the Wizarding World must now face.
Meanwhile, across the Atlantic Ocean, a young witch uncovers the truth about her bloodline. But only when catastrophic events begin to unfold, does she realise her importance in the greater scheme of things...
It is a tale of epic proportions: bringing in the truth behind Slytherin's betrayal, and the choices the Founders had to make to ensure the longevity of their world. Enemies must unite, lines must be crossed, and children must forgo their innocence. And behind it all, fly the Spirits of the Storm, waiting, watching, scheming. Welcome to the greatest epic war the Wizarding World has ever seen.
Chapter 11 is posted.

Summary: PRE-HBP :: At the end of his sixth year, Harry Potter, the boy-who-lived, defeated Voldemort for the last time. But the tides of war have taken a toll on him, as much as they have taken a toll on his beloved Hogwarts and the entire Wizarding World.

I won't be doing anything more with this sotry, but since I like the chapter, I'm leaving it up.
