Staring Back by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: Charlie Weasley and Penelope Clearwater were a mismatch made under Romanian skies one starlit night. They'd made no promises, except one: to see if they could make it work.

But what neither of them had counted on were ghosts from the past threatening their future before it had started.

This follow up to Mirrors is for Julia (the opaleye) because not only did she suggest the original pairing, but it is her birthday (well it was, I'm a tad late)

I'm not JK Rowling. She has more money, grace and style.

Summary: Past Featured StoryShaking free of one's chains is never easy. Least of all, for Draco Malfoy.

Disclaimer: I am not J.K. Rowling. (Duh.)

Dedication: I wrote this for Carole/Equinox Chick, because I've wanted to write her a birthday fic for three years and failed, because her encouragement has meant more to me than she could possibly know, and because she told me to write more Draco. (What?) She's also Mistress of The Brawl, from whence this fic came.

Disclaimer: This story is inspired by William Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing, but you don’t need to be familiar with the play -- everyone’s invited! This is also my 100th story on the archives, my biggest fanfic till date, and it might just end up being my own darling swansong. I hope that if you click on it, you’ll enjoy it.

Forgetting to Live by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: Past Featured StoryIt was supposed to be a New Year's Eve party to heal the rifts in the Magical World, but as he stood at the bar, a glass of champagne in his hand, all Harry felt was weariness. Then chance (or perhaps destiny) decided to play, and Harry was thrust into the company of the one person he had no intention of healing anything with.

To Dwell On Dreams by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary: 'Sometimes I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror or a window, and I do not recognise the face staring back. Even the eyes, which never truly change, seem dulled in comparison to what they once were.

It is not age that dulled them but you, and him, and her, and the myriad of dreams that came to nothing.'


Albus Dumbledore dwells on his life, and love, and the Hogwarts' students he shaped.

This story is for Natalie (hestiajones) because it is her birthday and she is a fantastic friend. Have a good one, my love.

Disclaimer: I'm not JK Rowling. I think that's obvious.

Thank you very much, Kara (Karaley Dargen) for beta'ing this story and helping me rethink bits. :)

Rest In The Bed by welshdevondragon
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary: Past Featured Story

"This is the last night I will spend in our flat. I have spent sixty-nine nights here without you, and I can only manage one more."

....

"I can't remember falling out of love with you. I've just--I've just fallen in love with someone else, so maybe what we had wasn't love in the first place."



Lily is leaving the flat she and Scorpius shared for five years, in the hope that she can move on. Some things, however, are hard to forget.

This story is for Soraya, since it is partially her fault, and also because she deserves many stories of higher quality than this.

Title from the Laura Marling song of the same name, which is also the song played during this story.
