Hey! I'm coppercurls, a proud Hufflepuff (beware the badger) and a college kid who writes in her spare time. Incidentally, I find no time is spare since whatever free time I have is instantly relegated to writing time- the only solution I have found is to make all days thirty-six hours. Unfortunately this hasn't caught on yet. I read indescriminatly, although my preferences lie with fairy tales of all shapes and sizes. I haunt the public library, always bringing back a sack full of new books- I am not ashamed to still go in the children's section either. I do have a tendancy to ramble on when I don't really have a straightforward plan, so I will spare you and end this bio right here.
I also have original fiction up at the Red Chair (see website above) under the penname coppercurls. Please check it out and let me know what you think!
I am currently working on three chaptered fics, so
I beg your indulgence as I switch between them. One is a next generation fic about Draco's son, Emrys and the trouble he gets into at school. It is called: With a Little Help from my Friends.
The next is a good old fashioned romance between Severus Snape and a strongwilled OC named Helene. Based on ideas from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, this will be the longest of my chaptered stories. Titled: How Saynday got the Sun.
Finally, I have a D/Hr series which begins with O Ye of Little Faith, and the sequal, For the Lacking of It is finally being put up! This will be a medium chaptered fic, so keep checking back for updates! I also have a one shot offshoot called On ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur which had Draco and Hermione telling a fairy tale to thier daughter, and mimics their relationship throughout the series.
Other D/Hr fics include:
Breaking the Mind Trap and
You are insulting my delicate feelings again.
Summary: When Ginny Weasley becomes Draco Malfoy's wife, he suspects neither her true identity nor her dangerous motives. But when all Hell breaks lose and their relationship takes unexpected turns, there is more at stake than preserving their marriage--namely, preserving their lives.
Summary: Callie and Lia, a Gryffindor and a Slytherin. A lady and a tomboy. Two opposite souls. Two sisters. Separated at birth by circumstances they are determined to discover... and undo. Yes, after being reunited, the siblings plan to reunite their parents as well. Let’s see them accomplish House Unity, too!
“It’s our rule not to dredge up past things, remember?”This rule is about to be broken.
~Inspired by a worldwide beloved film.

Lucas, determined to keep his distance and only mind his own business, suddenly finds his options banging impatiently on the door. When indifference is no longer an option, how will he decide where his loyalties lie?
A/N: This story was plotted out before the release of the 7th book, but as I continue writing after having read it, chapters may be inspired by/include spoilers from Deathly Hallows.

“No matter the time or place, people should never call their child Marie-Antoinette. There is no happiness in this world for a girl called Marie-Antoinette.”
1983. In a world where Voldemort has won the First War, where hope has fled from an Earth moaning under the Dark Lord's iron hand, marriages are broken and others are arranged in order to preserve the sacred purity of blood. James Potter loses his wife; now they have to find another for him.
Summary: Rebuilding after the final battle of Hogwarts was difficult for everyone, but even moreso for one person in particular. How will Remus recover after so much sadness in his life?
Post Deathly Hallows - Spoilers! Slightly AU. Remus/Hermione.
Summary: Was it possible to save two lives in the past without altering history? Was it possible to give his parents a future twenty years after they had supposedly died? Teddy Lupin thought so...
It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.
No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.
Update (9 May): Chapter 17, Burning, is up! Enjoy!
Summary: Non-compliant with both HBP and DH. An annoying event causes Hermione to choose to spend the Christmas break in seventh year away from her best friends, but Dumbledore feels she needs someone to watch over her. How will Hermione react to the appearance of the Potions master on her doorstep -- and how will they interact when cooped up alone together for days on end2006 SS/HG Winter Exchange on Live Journal, for the prompt: A weekend alone for Hermione in the Granger?s residence. Suddenly the Potions master turns up on her door step. For whom the bell rings, it rings for you.
Summary: Percy Weasley receives some fictional inspiration after discovering that authority, though Authority, is not always right. Through DH he attempts to do the right thing, smuggle Muggle-borns out of the country without losing his life (or his job), and figure out just which laws he ought to follow.
Summary: Draco wanted to get away. He needed to get away from all the things that reminded him everyday of the mistakes he had made and the one he had lost. He found the perfect spot too, a small town in Wyoming, USA, a place called Nowhere. A perfect name as far as he was concerned. Magic, fate has a way of finding you no matter where you go though.
Summary: Taking place after HBP. Professor Snape has been found to be a spy and He-who-must-not-be-named has imprisoned him in an enchanted cottage, until he can find a use for the Potions Master.
Summary: At some point there had to have been a choice.
The logical place to begin a story is at the point of the first decision. But what if there were no decisions? What if, at every point, there was only one possible act? What if the story simply cannot be told?
Completed (though not posted) entirely pre-DH.
Summary: In post-war England, the Ministry of Magic is closing Azkaban Prison, and prisoners are being released to family members. What will happen to Severus Snape, who has no family? Hermione Granger has a notion of what can be done.

The Triwizard Tournament is going to be hosted once again after twenty-three years and Ariel is going to find himself in the middle of it.

QSQ Award for Best Male OC, Ariel Sachs
QSQ Nomination for best Same-Sex Pairing Fic
I can't thank enough my wonderful beta Lys. Without her this fic wouldn't be posible.
Summary: Fifteen-year-old Harry Potter wakes up in his cupboard under the stairs at number four, Privet Drive with no memory of the past five years of his life. What happened to his memory? What do his strange dreams mean? And most importantly, how will he survive in a school for incurably criminal boys?
This is primarily a mystery, with a bit of shippiness thrown in here and there. Of course, if I told you WHO is involved in the shippiness, that would ruin part of the mystery, wouldn’t it?
This story takes place immediately after OotP (and thus disregards HBP).
Summary: Wherever his reputation preceded him, he was unwelcome. So he kept inside and played his violin. And the music carried through his open window, and, unseen, he serenaded the city... Remus Lupin, as a Muggle, tutors one Hermione Granger, a brilliant young violinist with a promising career. (AU, slightly allegorical.)
Summary: In the wake of the Final Battle, the Order has opened Headquarters to house its youngest members during a summer of Ministry-sponsored social events. With Snape as a chaperone, and engaged to another woman, the advent of a busy Hermione, determined to see her friends in love-matches, can only be a recipe for disaster.
Summary: Once, Parvati and Padma shared everything: pain and tears, happiness and laughter. But time has changed them, and now -- as Parvati sits with her sister at the dining table -- she cannot share. She must be strong. For Padma's sake. HBP Spoilers.
His knuckles were becoming white. Draco tried not to look down the cliff as he held on for dear life. He was hanging by the edge of his fingers now, his muscles vibrating with the effort of holding on. Searching for somewhere to fasten his footing and maybe crawl back up, his foot slipped as small stones glided down the vertical cliff, and he was left dangling, holding on by his wish to live. He could hear the sea crushing unceremoniously against the rocks bellow. They crashed imperviously with the stone, inviting him to their midst.
“I can’t reach you; you’re too far away...” she spoke softly.
