Just a normal girl who is in love with writing, painting, photography and all things Potter. I also enjoy Castle, White Collar, anything Disney and, of course, Narnia. It's been around four years since I've been into fanfiction, and I loved every second of it. Now that my A levels are over, I'm back to writing.

I'm currently working on a Rose/Scorpius along with Ginny Weasley Potter, and I've got around a million other plot bunnies hopping around for other stories. All I've got to do now is write them down... if I ever get the muse :)
Summary: Draco Malfoy was in a mess. His father was determined to get their stance back in the wizarding world, even if it meant ruining his son's life. Draco needed to find a way to stop his father's disgusting plans, and fortunately, he found just the answer: Astoria. The solution? Pretending to be engaged to Astoria when they're truly not, so that his father doesn't get him married to some Mudblood.
But what happens when this little game called pretend turns into something more? Will it be too late before they both realize their feelings for each other?
Hey, good one, Rish! Hope the next ones come soon!--Nadia
Author's Response: Gee, thanks, Nadz! You're the first one to review! Love you!
Ooh, very lubbly chapter, Rish! I loved Draco's characterization and all. Astoria seems like a good character too... The only problem is that there was too much dialogue and the Trio wasn't shown much. I also kinda feel that Hermione would do a bit more during the dance. Like say something, atleast.... but your language and everything else was PUR-FECT! Keep updatin'! --Your best fwend, Nadia
Author's Response: Yeah, I noticed the over-use of dialogue too! But I didn't really know how to fix it, cuz this chapter's characterisation was mostly through dialogue. :S
Summary: Minerva McGonagall is cleaning out Dumbledores office when she stumbles upon a box full of secrets. And what she discovers in the box will change the future of the Wizarding world forever…
Just on another note, most of the warnings above are for a purely just in case situation, and most of the above possible scenarios are not graphic in nature.
first chapter looks good! :D and Dumbledore's daughter? Amazing! :P
Nice! So Gabi's husband's a lord or something? :)
lol. Ella sounds so like me :P loved it! :D
Summary: After a year full of bombings and killings, we thought it couldn’t get worse. But we were horribly wrong. And then they struck the final blow… upon our tolerance.
This was the day when Mumbai, India’s financial capital was attacked by terrorists. They kept the city hostage for around sixty hours taking hundreds of lives and injuring many more. This attack is counted amongst the most deadliest terrorist attacks so far. It raised a wave of fury and unity in Mumbai.
But after all this, are we, as residents of this diverse world, really united? Why do we fight with each other, just because we belong to different religions? Does difference in faith really matter?
I am Ginny Weasley Potter from Hufflepuff and this story is for the Written Word Challenge of the Hogwarts Spring Term, 2009. I am writing to support the organisation called ‘Citizens For Peace’.
I loved the first chapter! The characters were really well written, especially Ron. They were really IC. But I really wanna read on ahead, so when are you gonna update? I'm really looking forward to the events that are gonna follow.
Author's Response: It's been more than a year and I had no idea this one had a review. :o :o I'm thinking I shouldn't leave this one half-way. Let me see... Thank you for the review, sweetie!
Summary: Rich, beautiful, and effective-- three words that describe Miss Zabini perfectly.
Or at least, that's what she'd tell you!
In her defence, she has planned hundreds of parties and dinners professionally, and they've all gone off without a hitch.
That is, until she had to plan that fateful Ministry dinner!
Haha! LOL. This made me laugh, BB!Awesome story, man, good job.--Nadia
Narcissa Black was fine.
She was doing well in school, her sister was getting married, and she had a boyfriend.
Oh, yes, she had a boyfriend. Dark, tall, enchanting Rabastan Lestrange. He was every Slytherin girl’s fantasy. Narcissa had been dreaming about him for years. And now he was all hers.
But Lucius Malfoy was worried about her.
Oh my god, that was awesome! It was a very good story and the description was well given. The plot was brilliant as well, and the characters were quite believable too! I just think you could have given a meeting between Lucius and Narcissa at the end, that would've been awesome. Overall, the story was just GREAT! Keep it up, I wish to read more from you.--Nadia
Summary: After the death of her father, a young girl has no one to turn to for comfort. Her family has grown distant and friends had only been an idea, rather than physical beings. That is, until she met a black horse who reminds her of her own father, but what is the true secret behind this creature that no one else can see?
OMH, Mercy, this story is awesome! I'll give it an infinity out of ten! This story was so touching, and the reactions of the characters are understandable even without the dialogues. You did a superb job with this. Awesome.-------Nadia
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it and yes, I loved how it didn't have any formal dialogue. I was writing it and realized that I didn't need it. Thank you again for reading and reviewing. :)
Summary: Lord Voldemort has been destroyed and both Muggle and magical world are at last safe. Nineteen years of blossoming peace and love pass by, but it is not meant to last.
Ominous signs slowly began to surface everywhere and the full Order of the Phoenix is forced to act. What are the meaning of these signs? Who is behind them?
Harry Potter and his friends are ripped from their peaceful lives as the darkness begins to spread once again...
Wow. This is a really awesome chapter you wrote. I like your style a lot! I can't wait to see what comes up in the next chapters. Goodluck!--Nadia
Author's Response: Unfortunately FF decided that the second chapter I submitted didn't suit their "rules". Apparently the way I use these (' ' ' ' ' ) for conversations is wrong. Funny thing is I received my Proficiency Certificate in English writing like that. Maybe the Admins at FF are correct and the rest of us mortals is wrong? It must be... Surely Cambridge couldn't possibly hold a candle against these guys, right?
Summary: A normal afternoon turns into a odd one for the Trio when a random boy shows up, a character who is convinced he is an authentic British lad. He is sadly mistaken.
Haha, lol. That was a very interesting fic! I liked the way you made the boy so... annoying. Good job! It was a really good depiction of people who try to use too much briticisms. Atleast now some people might try to lessen it a bit, *rolls eyes*. Anyways, awesome story. Keep it up!--Nadia
Author's Response: Thanks for the read-and-review Nadia. I'm glad you enjoyed it! ....Thomas... what can I say? :)
Summary: Severus Snape always hated Neville Longbottom. He treated him as bad if not worse than he treated Harry Potter.
Neville Longbottom has been teaching at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for fifteen years. Over the course of time, he has come in contact with the portrait of Severus Snape in the Headmistress’ office on several occasions.
It seemed dying had not lessened Snape’s hatred of Neville at all. What happens one day when Neville is asked to come to the Headmistress’ office and alone in the office, confronts Snape over his treatment of him? Will Neville finally learn the truth?
Wow, Terri, awesome! I really liked it! I espicially liked the fact that Neville became confident enough to finally confront Snape. Good job!--Nadia
Summary: Five years since the defeat of the Dark Lord, Draco Malfoy is finally getting his life back on track. Married, employed by the Ministry, slowly gaining back the trust of the wizarding world, Malfoy is finally free from the oppression and terror of Voldemort. Until one day his Dark Mark burns again. Why is this happening? Who is summoning him back to a world of darkness and fear? As the new life he has built from scratch begins to fall apart around him Draco can turn to only one man for help.
Wow, this was an really amazing story, Julia! It was a shock when I found out that it was Thicknesse - No one could have guessed. It was captivating and enthralling the whole time. The chapter in which we found out Thicknesse's identity was so full of suspense that I was literally leaning into the screen, eager to reach the line where he was revealed.
It was really sad about how Kate had that scar on her face - but then again, it wouldn't have been realistic if nothing had happened at all. It just makes the story more believable. I also absolutely loved their characterisations. I liked how Draco and Harry were willing to keep aside their differences and finally work together - though I did enjoy Draco's sarcasm and jibes! Katie was such a believable character and she behaved exactly how any other wife would in such a situation. I'm really happy that he kept her faith in Draco at the end, though. And it shows how much she loved her husband that she went off to Malfoy Manor by herself to help him.
Overall, great job on this fic! I hope to see more awesome stuff from you.
Author's Response: Oh what a lovely review, Nadia! Thank you so much. And thank you for the wonderful banner which I just saw in the BA challenge thread. I can't wait to put it in my sig when I get home from work :) It's a nice surprise to see people still reading this fic. It feels like so long ago but it still has a special place in my heart. I remember enjoying writing this so much, especially the banter and snark between Harry and Draco. Again, thanks so much for the lovely review. It was a lovely surprise to see it waiting for me morning. Julia x
Scorpius had never looked forward to anything the way he looked forward to leaving Hogwarts with Rose. He planned a holiday with no friends, no family, and nothing to do but be together—until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
That was a really amazing story!! Rose and Scorpius were just brilliant, and the family was exactly how I expected it to be :) Hope Teryn and Edgar won't have problems in future! And I loved the part about the vision Rose had; I'm gonna go with it being Sight, hehe. Anyway, congrats on finishing this awesome fic! I'll be keeping an eye out for The Green Knight Rises, too, can't wait to read more! --Nadia
Author's Response: Thank you! I agree about Sight, or else Rose and Scorpius both enjoyed that outdoor shower so much it's as good as Sight. :D Teryn and Edgar will have problems in the future, but that's another story. ^_~
“…he fell through the ancient doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment as though in a high wind and then fell back into place… Sirius must be just behind the curtain…”
Sirius Black didn’t die when he fell through the veil in the Department of Mysteries. He was transported to another world: our world, where Hogwarts doesn’t exist and magic lives only in the fantasy books. As Sirius tries to understand this strange new world and find his way home, he runs into some unlikely old friends. Nothing is the same behind the curtain.
Whoa, that was a new twist! Lily and Sev? Cool. :)
I love your concept and the story. In fact, I'm writing one about the veil too :P. It's not up yet, though. I was hooked the whole time, and all your twists are amazing. Actually, they also make perfect sense, that since there's no Hogwarts, Lily and James never met, but Lily got to be with Sev instead.
Well, I was actually hoping that Sirius finds some way to return to the real universe, but... aww well. But this was great too. I liked how he had faith in Harry at the end!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Writing about the veil is loads of fun, since canon basically gives you free rein. I'm glad you liked it, and I can't wait to see what your veil fic has to offer! Peace, Virgil
The Wizarding War is over.
Auror training has begun and Harry and Ron find that their lives are centred round London and the Ministry of Magic.
For Ginny and Hermione there is the inevitable return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Their lives are centred round schooling in Scotland.
Do these divided duos have different destinations and divergent destinies? When, where and how can these parted pairings meet? Opportunities are limited to holidays, Hogsmeade visits and school Quidditch matches.
Nominated for: Best Post-Hogwarts (Chaptered) story - Quicksilver Quills 2012
Wow, this story is simply awesome. Every single one of the characters are brilliantly written, especially Harry and Ginny, and this is exactly how I visioned their year after the Battle. I can't wait to read the rest of the story! Excellent job! --Nadia :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. This is a sequel to Grave Days, which takes place in the summer after the battle (between May and September). I hope to get another chapter posted soon after I return from holiday. -N-
Summary: At age eleven, Dudley's daughter receives a letter he recognizes very well. As Sinead Dursley embarks on her journey of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, she strikes up a strange friendship with Lorcan Scamandar. Soon, Lorcan and Sinead rule over a reign of terror at Hogwarts as they subject their fellow students to cruel and dangerous pranks.
The title of this story comes from the poem "Child" by Sylvia Plath. Also, I would like to thank Royari for being an amazing beta.
Wow, I love this story! It's really well written, and sometimes it makes me feel like I'm reading something written by Rowling herself :). I love all the details you've put into it, and everyone seems in character. Good job, and I can't wait to read more. Oh, and I loved the part about the wandmaker - I'm Bangladeshi too ^_^.
Hope to see more soon!
Author's Response: oh wow, thank you for such a lovely review! :D
Summary: Hermione is at her first dance and on her first date, but the night for firsts is still young at the Yule Ball.
Here she was, dancing and laughing like she hadn’t in ages with none other than Viktor Krum. Hermione had never had much time for romance and boys, or even Quidditch at that. So how was it she was being swept away by the youngest and most famous Seeker in the world?
This is a really nice one-shot, trust me. Krum was totally in character, and his accent was perfect. I also loved Hermione, and I think this is totally how she felt, considering her behaviour around Krum all the time in the books. Oh, and loved the last line, by the way... so Hermione!! Overall, Awesome one-shot! Keep it up, girl! ^_^ --Nadia
Author's Response: Thanks Nadia! I love how awkward they both are and exploited it hehe :-) Thanks for the review!!! -Bre
Summary: I suspect Potter always imagined himself dying honourably in battle or saving some poor sod’s soul. He didn’t. And for that I was smugly appreciative.
2010 QSQ Award Winner for Post-Hogwarts Story
Wow.... This is one of the best stories I've read so far. I loved your moral, and the way you wrote this story is very touching. I was hooked the whole time.
Your characterisations of Draco and Harry are spot on. I especially loved how you wrote Malfoy-- the sarcasm and sense of superiority are all perfect.
And Harry's grave is exactly how I imagine it to be- plain and simple. He'd never want anything like "Hero" written on his tombstone. The quote that you've given is perfect.
You did a great job with this. Congrats, and keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely review. I have never written something like this before, and I was a little worried about how it would be received. I'm still not happy with it, but I am quite glad that Draco stayed in character (and Harry too). I, too, think that Harry would never let them write 'Hero' on his tombstone. ;) *grins* I'm content that my vague talk of the afterlife didn't annoy you either. Heheh.
Thank you again. ^^
Summary: Molly Weasley II has a seemingly great life. She's a Ravenclaw, probably the best of her year- she had friends that never left her, like the Scamander brothers, and a cousin, father, mother and sister that love her dearly.
In the Wizarding World in whole, after Voldemort, all is well. That is, until Muggles start their third World War. A foreign group of wizards, the Dark Knights, seem to be behind it all. Wizards are forced into hiding and laws are more unfair and stricter than ever.
Somehow, Molly finds herself in the midst of it. Lost and confused, she blindly leads the Resistance with the power of her words, being barely sixteen, with the help of Lysander, Roxy and Lorcan.
You might think that at least she's got her friends to get by, right? ....right...
Wow, this was a really nice one. I loved your characters, and Molly and Lysander, though minor and never-mentioned-in-the books characters, totally came to life. It was really sweet, and I loved it. I especially liked Molly, and how she never let Lysander speak. :P It was hilarious. Overall, it was an awesome chapter. Can't wait for more! :D
