Bio:

Hello, there. I'm Minna. I hail from sunny (muggy, sticky) Florida. I'm a Hufflepuff over on the Beta Boards, and I write fiction and poetry on here, as well as making graphics over on the boards. I have been audiofic'd, won a few QSQs, even finally managed to place higher than third in a few challenges, which took several years of membership to happen, but by far the strangest thing that's happened on here is that I seem to be (as of this writing, Oct 2014) on the Top Ten Most Prolific Authors list on here. Thanks, PA!

Despite that title, I am a very slow writer, and several of my chaptered fics are unlikely to ever be updated and I mostly keep them around just in case. Um, sorry about that. If that kind of thing is going to annoy you too much, perhaps stick to my one-shots and poems.

As It Is by Pendraegona
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: Bridges fell, Muggles were murdered, a wave of despair swept over Britain...and two dentists moved to Australia.

Wendell and Monica Wilkins had no children, but that was fine with them--all they had ever wanted, after all, they had found in the quiet town of Charters Towers.

Or rather, the daughter they didn't know they had loved them enough to let them go.

I am Pendraegona, and this is my submission to the Worlds Within a World challenge.

The Things I Do For L.O.V.E by Pussycat123
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 473]

Summary: Hi, I’m Lily Evans. You know, there are a lot of fics about me out there. I’m flattered that you spend time thinking about me, but sometimes sickened. How could these fics not mention my bonkers beautiful cat, Missy? And what about my evil and malicious extremely helpful conscience? Or the fact that I make a fool out of myself at every opportunity am unique?

Well, this fic has all of these things. It also has L.O.V.E (I’m the ‘L’), the elite group of cliquey lovely girls that I am part of. And our rival, the sarcastic cynic also unique Iola Potter (cousin and partner in crime to James). But does it have an actual plot? Of course not Absolutely! And it starts with me getting a detention with Iola (through no fault of my own, of course). And we kind of ... almost ... well, we get on alright. A friendship sparks, shall we say. I have no idea how it happens It is meant to be. But it’s going to take some fighting for if we want to keep it. It would be a lot easier to just stick to what we know, really. We were perfectly happy hating each other. But ... well. I guess you’ll have to find out!

Read this or I’ll curse you Read this and I’ll love you!
