I've been writing this one and posting the chapters in Wolf and Lady, but figured I'd wait till it was done before I posted it in other places (I'm weird like that). So, here's a cute and funny RL/NT fic!

Title:On Assignment
Summary: Tonks and Lupin go on an observation assignment. How will they spend their time? Lots of amusing banter and one upsmanship.
Rating: G-er than G
Notes: Sequel to Rise and Shine
Word Count: 5,000 or so?

Enjoy :)

Really old fic! [31 Jul 2005|09:55pm]

I wrote this fic a while ago, but really wanted some feedback. If you all would be so kind as to let me know what you think, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

Title: “The Tormented Heart”
Author: insanegolfur (Andrea)
Pairing: Ron/Hermione (sort of)
Rating: G
Summary: Ron dreams about what could be. Song fic. (Again written way back when)
Disclaimer: All characters are owned by J. K. Rowling. I own no one and know no one. Song “Every Season” by Nicole Nordman… also not owned by me.
A/N: It hasn't been betaed so there may be things that I didn't catch. Sorry.

The Tormented HeartCollapse )

Also I've lost my muse and haven't written much since this one. If you all could help me by giving me possible plots or even little tiny prompts, I'd be extremely grateful! Thank you!

Getting my feet wet! [26 Jul 2005|05:40pm]

Hi everyone!
I wanted to post the two stories I've written this week, both concerning Lupin and Tonks. As I am a squib when it comes to using lj cuts, I'm going to link them from my fanfiction.net page...

Title: Persephone
Author: Darsynia
Rating: G
Specific warnings: not a relationship fic, more like a 'tension when the other is nearby' sort of thing
Summary: Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks have an interesting encounter in the library, while discussing muggle mythology

Title: Rise and Shine
Author: Darsynia
Rating: G
Specific warnings: again, not an in-relationship fic, just general cuteness
Summary: Lupin gets the dubious pleasure of waking Tonks up for breakfast every morning for a week. Hilarity ensues.

As for anyone that's said any of the nice things so far about these stories, you've made my week! I have been seriously dancing around the house since I posted them.

My first fan fic [26 Apr 2005|01:41pm]

Title: Studying
Author: Gaidig
Rating: G
Specific warnings: Ron & Hermione
Summary: Ron's musings
Note: It's super short, I know. Please critique! I won't take offense.
Cross-posted to sharpestwit

Ron sighed and dropped his pen. Maybe if he just rubbed his eyes a little, they would stop crossing every time he looked at the book. Not that last book had been any better. After a while, words just started to look like twisted shreds of black ribbon pinned to the page. But he had to keep studying. If he could just do well on this test, really well, he might surprise Hermione, surprise her out of thinking of Ron as her bumbling, loyal friend. Kind, yes. Funny, yes. Brave, to be sure. Friend.

He had to impress her. And what else would impress Hermione? Not beating McGonagall at chess. He would bet not even beating Montague Knightley at chess! Not being Gryffindor Prefect. Probably not being Head Boy! Not being Gryffindor keeper. Not even if Gryffindor won the Quidditch cup!

No, Hermione liked quidditch, but no one cares about the keeper. Ron could just see her, with her hair shining and swishing, and her hand on Victor Krum's arm...

Maybe he should stop rubbing his eyes so hard. Oh, drat! A small lake of ink had leaked from his pen. A quick Drought Charm should take care of that. But what was that last word? How much of his notes had been lost? He could almost make out that word, but he couldn't remember how long ago he had written it. He frantically flipped back through the book to find the section the last notes had come from. Was that it? He thought he remembered that. Yes, he would just copy it again and it might be clear this time...

James and Sirius. Bits of Sirius/Remus
ItThe day James is killed. One last visit.
A/N: It tries really hard to be angsty, but I know it needs some work. And constructive comments would be really welcome. Also, struggled with tenses.

storyteller and two poems [01 Dec 2004|06:17pm]

[ mood | calm ]

Title: Storyteller
Author: aperfectsong, Heather K. Michaels
Rating: PG
Specific warnings: Sarcasm? Story-in-story commentary?
Summary: (original) I don't really know how to summarize a short story, but I'll try. Hailey is the storyteller. She has a clumsy sister named Wind, an eccentric mother named Aaralyne, and a unconventional packrat (Terrian) for a father. If you look hard enough, everyone has a story.

Are we allowed to post poetry? I need criticism.

Two poems, one really short so please reviewCollapse )

And one more thing: I was, at one point, on the writing counsel. Did I do something wrong to get kicked off? =0

A Molly Ficlet [01 Dec 2004|03:43pm]

Title: In The Bones (working title only)
Author: Rosie
Rating: PG
Specific warnings: Set in Grimmauld Place, so post OotP, no spoilers though really.
Summary: Molly knows the truth about love
AN:This is a little thing I thought of a while ago, all critical feedback welcome please.

Dishes are forgotten in the sink of cold soapy water, enchanted wash cloths lie still on the sideboard. A cup of cold tea is in her hands, cold fingers wrapped round it and numb. She wonders sometimes if Grimmauld Place could be cursed. All the Blacks are dead now and when she lets herself think on it, so may all the new residents. She already knows some of them will be, of that she is certain.

Molly is no fool and nor is she blind. Love does not conquer anything or save anyone’s life, just gives people something worth giving it up for. It brings the pain closer and makes it inescapable, unavoidable.

She watches her sons and husband do their part for love and the good fight, she doesn’t let herself guess which one she will lose first. The longer they stay in Grimmauld the harder it is to return to the Burrow. It is made of all the Weasley’s that have lived there. When one of them doesn’t come back she can return and find them there. She could sit at the long table with her family again, even Percy.

She still keeps Ron as safe as he will let her, but that will not last much longer. He will give his life to Harry without hesitation and if she didn’t love Harry like her own, she would wish they had never met. Sympathy for a lost boy is safer when he can’t lead your own children away too.

Ron, Harry and Hermione will go together into whatever is coming, that she is sure of. Ron will go with Harry because he loves him. Molly will let them both go in the end as well, because she loves them too. Her boys would try and do anything she asks of them, so she will never ask them for what she wants most. She knows they couldn’t give it to her.

That’s what it’s all about in the end.

I was just bored and wrote some drabbles. They are unbeta-ed, so please, please find typos and spelling mistakes, and just tell me what you think.



[31 Oct 2004|12:59pm]

Title: While She Lived
Author: Andrea Bechen - unearthingbone
Rating: Probably PG-13 for violence and some language.
Specific warnings: There's a lot of violence in this story, though most of it is implied. Also, if I remember correctly, there's some foul language.
Summary: This is original fiction, not HP-related. :/ But, anyhow, in this story, the story of a woman whose body is found in the mountains is told through vignette-style depictions of moments in her lifetime.

While She LivedCollapse )

Thanks for reading, if you do. :D

Title: Spy Games
Author: brilliant-author 16 (My fanfiction name!)
Rating: PG
Specific warnings:
Summary: Fred and George take up the new talent of spying. They tell their story of Harry and Ginny trying to have a romantic relationship while trying to do their studies as well. They also spy on Hermione while she is study impulsively for her N.E.W.T.S. that are coming up while Ron tries to ‘hint’ to Hermione his true feelings for her. If this isn’t enough it happens that Draco Malfoy has a little secret of his that will destroy his reputation when it comes in the hands of the two red headed, mischievous twins.

Fic One [25 Oct 2004|08:59pm]

Title: Something Borrowed
Author: Rosie (damaged@fsmail.net)
Rating: PG
Specific warnings: Urm, mild angst maybe?
Summary: Harry knows what he's here for.
AN: I'm pretty new to fanfic writing and this is the first HP i've posted. I want to improve!

No matter how many friends and allies he has, Harry is alone. He loves and needs and dies for his friends. This he can do. He likes to think it is why he Lived, it makes it worthwhile, to have lived for something more than killing a dark lord.

He has Ron and Hermione with him, they love him and he takes it because he will not be keeping it for long. They carry him through years he couldn’t have lived without them, and he will repay it the only way he knows how. The only way he can to show them he is grateful.

He couldn’t live without them. The only kind of family he has known, brother and sister and friends for as long as he lives, having a home too, the first one, and surely that is all worth dying for. Ron in the lake settled that for him, knowing the fear of losing him and a world of misery that would follow. He was glad he hadn’t had to choose between them though.

It is a simple choice. The world can live without Potters and Riddles, but not without Weasleys or Grangers. His job is to make sure they have the world ready for them to live in it, and they keep him alive long enough to make it so.

They live happily ever after like he wants them to. The world a safe place to grow up and grow old in.

Dead to Him [11 Oct 2004|08:51pm]

Is it if anyone in hogwarts_ch posts things here? I wasn't sure, so I'm gonna do it anyway, cuz I need some major beta-ing.

Dead to Him
Not very slashy, but enough to call it slash. Takes place ten years after Sirius was first thrown in Azkaban, and Remus has a lot of thoughts to deal with.

Love the Irish [15 Sep 2004|08:34pm]

[ mood | curious ]

This is only the first chapter, so it's somewhat short. I like to make the first chapter of my stories shorter than the rest, why... I'm not sure. I had this idea bouncing around in my brain to write a Seamus fic, so here I am.

don't make fun of me for writing a romance/humor fic. lol

be nice. *winces*

Opening things up here...

This is something I finished last year and I have way more pride in it than it deserves, as it is the first moderately long thing I have ever finished. However, at this point I'm looking for serious amounts of revisions and corrections, because...well...it needs it. Cut it to pieces. Please.

Title: Letting Go (chapter 1)
Author: Bren
Rating: PG-13 (warnings for slight amounts of swearing and slash content)
Summary: Adrian Samson seems to have the perfect life - until he begins to come to terms with one dark secret and one person who has no secrets...
