Bio:
What can I say. I'm a grown woman living in London but I'm obsessed with a teenage wizard and his friends. Am I mad? Probably Do I care? Hell no!
EDIT: Grown? Um, probably not

For my first foray into the realms of fanfiction I've chosen to write about the Marauders. I'll always stick fairly closely to canon as I think JK knows best. Although I've enjoyed reading about other ships I, personally, don't think I could write with conviction about Ginny/Crabbe or Hermione/Mclaggan relationships.

EDIT: ha ha ha ha ha - How I have changed! I'm now firmly in the rare-pair, SSP, and things that aren't quite conventional camp, although I still loves me some James/Lily.

My second chaptered fic (Apparently Asleep) has started a love affair with Tonks/Remus and confirmed my obsession for all things Sirius. *sigh*

I am indebted to Terri (mudbloodproud) for being a great beta and all round amazing person. If it hadn't been for her encouragement I would have thrown in the towel many months ago.

EDIT: I have made a lot of wonderful friends during my past three years on MNFF, including (in no particular order) Natalie, Kara, Hannah/Bob, Jess, Gina, Lea, Lori, Julia, Minna, Emmahhhh, and the fantabulous BB.

I hope Mugglenet and you enjoy reading my words as much as I've enjoyed writing them. Huge thank-you to my niece, Amanda, for being one of the first to catch the Harry Potter bug and nagging me into reading them.

Growing Old Disgracefully by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary: With her fortieth birthday approaching, Lavender Brown is seized with panic when she discovers her friends have a surprise party planned. Having declared herself permanantly thirty-nine, she does the only thing a grown woman can do when confronted with her age -- she does a runner. Apparating to King's Cross, she ends up on a train where she's surprised to meet a face from the past.

Will she confront her past and face up to her age? More importantly, will she return in time for the champagne?

This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff, and this is my entry for the Bookbasilisk 'Life Begins at Forty' challenge.

Thank you very much to Heather (MorganRay), Rose (Russia Snow) and Alyssa (Harry4lif) for their help in beta'ing this tale. Yes, three betas - I am greedy.

Drowning, not Waving by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 23]

Summary: Past Featured StoryEveryone knows Oliver Wood. He's the seventh year Gryffindor obsessed with Quidditch. But why is he so focused? What drives him on? And how will he cope when the Dementors get too close to his Seeker, and Diggory catches the Snitch?

Shutting himself in the changing room showers, Oliver cannot bring himself to visit Harry in the hospital wing, for the Dementors have released long repressed horrors in his own life. Will he finally face the reality of his life and obsession?

This is Equinox Chick submitting her final for the Characterisation class on the MNFF beta boards.

I would like to thank Emma (Amortentia X) for her invaluable help in beta'ing this tale. She not only corrected my horrible punctuation but helped a great deal with characterisation. I would also like to thank fgweasley, inspirations, eternalangel, Electronic Quillster and luinrina for their suggestions in class. Last but most definitely not least - thank you, Prof Haylee for allocating me Oliver Wood!

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but I doubt you're surprised by that.

The Waiting Game by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 20]

Summary: The waiting room at St Mungo's is a dreary place. Ginny knows it better than many people, for she spends her days there waiting -- and hoping.

This is connected to my fic 'Chasing the Scoop'. The journalist is Lavender Brown and the three champions are Jeunefleur - for Beauxbatons, Grindelwald - for Durmstrang, and Victoire Weasley - for Hogwarts.

I am not JK Rowling; I doubt that has shocked anyone here.

Staring into the Fire by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 15]

Summary: When Harry broke into Dolores Umbridge's office to demand answers from Sirius and Remus, he little knew this would be the last proper conversation he would have with his godfather.

But what of the two that were left staring into the fire?

For Moony and Padfoot, it is a chance to re-live old times -- a chance to answer those questions long put aside.

This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry for the Bookbasilisk Summer Challenge - Gift of the Gab.

Many thanks to Afifa and MorganRay for beta'ing this story. I would also like to thank Miss K for some constructive comments she made about an earlier draft.

Chasing the Scoop! by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 9]

Summary:

Two reporters. One Story.


Lee Jordan, former Potterwatch stalwart has been reduced to working for Sourcery Sounds Radio. When Digby Smyth says jump – Lee says ‘How high?’ What he wants is his own radio station again but first he must travel to Beauxbatons Ecole de Magic to report on the Triwizard Tournament.

Lavender Brown is the best the Daily Prophet has. She’s made it because she’s bloody good at her job despite the reputation that has followed her from her Hogwarts days. She’s looking forward to reporting on every aspect of the Tournament – especially when a former crush appears.

This is the story of two reporters following one story – The Triwizard Cup at Beauxbatons.

I am Equinox Chick reporting for Hufflepuff in the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament.

I'm not JK Rowling but I doubt you're shocked by that particular scoop

Thank you Alyssa (Harry4lif) for beat'ing this story.

Every Breath You Take by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 27]

Summary: Breathing. It’s easy, isn’t it?
In. Out. In. Out.
Inhale.
Exhale.
Easy.
Natural.

But what if it’s not easy? What if your body struggles for breath? What happens if you cannot get enough oxygen into your lungs? What happens if your lungs contract so tightly that you’re forced to use all your strength simply to breathe?

And how on earth do a wizarding family cope with a Muggle condition that could kill?

This is Lily Luna Potter's story of living with asthma.

I am Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry for the Written World Challenge, Spring Term 2009. It has been written to garner support for Asthma UK.

I do not own any of these characters - they all belong to JK Rowling.

FACT: Asthma can kill.

A Second Chance by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 8]

Summary: "I don't need help from filthy little Mudbloods like her!" **

Fifteen months have passed since Severus Snape shouted those words in fury. He's had fifteen months without Lily and it hurts like hell. Over the summer holiday he's made a decision - he wants her back. But first he needs to speak to her before the Hogwarts Express leaves King's Cross.

This story was originally written for the Hufflepuff Back to School challenge last year.

** indicates a line taken directly from Snape's Worst Memory - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I am not JK Rowling but I doubt you're surprised by that revelation.

Vampire - Ghost Child! by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 25]

Summary: Rosalburga Aphrodite Black is no ordinary Hogwarts student. First - she's American. Second - she's only just discovered she's a witch. Third - her mother is a Vampire. Fourth - her father is Sex!God Sirius Black.

Things are about to get very exciting for the new R.A.B.

This is a tale of high dram and passion. This is a tale of extreme cliche's. This is a tale that may never be seen again.

Summary: Peter Pettigrew wasn't always a traitor. He was a Marauder, a prankster and a good friend.

Peter Pettigrew wasn't always called Wormtail.

Perhaps, one change led to the other?

Summary: Now in his seventh year, Remus Lupin is a calm and responsible student. His friends know this and often take advantage, knowing that he never takes it to heart.

But sometimes, just sometimes, Moony longs for revenge, especially when Padfoot takes things one step too far.

But Padfoot is wise to Marauder pranks, so for April Fool's Day this year, Moony enlists the help of four girls who are also champing at the bit to humiliate the 'too damn adorable' Sirius Black.

I am Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry in the April Fool's Day Challenge set in the Great Hall.

Thank you to Alyssa (Harry4lif) and Wendy (Kiley) for their help in beta'ing this tale.

The song featured in this story is Hot Legs by Rod Stewart which was a huge hit in the early part of 1978 and seemed to lend itself very well to Sirius Black!

Disclaimer Sirius and Remus are not mine *sigh* but belong to JK Rowling as do James,Lily and Peter. The Harley-Queens however are my rather fluffy invention.

Sarah Macaulay has been living on the island for three years. She meets Sirius when he's washed up on her beach and for some unfathomable reason takes pity on this drifter.

Both have a past. Both have demons deep inside them. Both need to heal.

Snapdragons by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: Have you ever wondered why Gryffindor, despite having the great Charlie Weasley as Seeker, never seemed to win the House or Quidditch Cup? Perhaps he was distracted?

This is the story of Charlie's last game in the his fifth year. All Gryffindor need to do is beat Hufflepuff and then the Cup is theirs - but Hufflepuff have a new Seeker and Charlie can't stop thinking about flowers.

This is a Charlie/OC pairing and has been written as a present for someone.

Warning - Unashamed fluff! I am not JK Rowling, but I doubt that surprises you.

Summary: On their first reconnaissance mission together Remus and Tonks escape from the Death Eaters thanks to her remarkable quick-thinking. Decamping to a Muggle pub Remus discovers she’s not as confident as he’d assumed. He’s always felt like the outsider – but perhaps he’s not alone?
