Hello, I'm Hermione_Rocks, though you may call me Anna, or D.E, or Mrs. Snape . . . whatever flies your kite. I'm a high school student who is hopelessly obsessed with many things, such as Harry Potter, musicals (current favorite is Sweeney Todd), books/reading, various Internet web-sites, and food.
As you can probably tell, I have an incurable love for writing fan-fiction. Would I do better to be working on original fiction? Probably. But at the moment, I just want to have fun with writing. One day I hope to be published, but I'm really not in any rush. Right now, I just want to enjoy all this. :)
I hope you find something you'd like to read while you're here, and please leave a review to let me know your thoughts. I'm always looking for feedback, good or bad.
Summary: Long before Lucius and Narcissa were wed, he was engaged to another: Narcissa's elder sister, Andromeda. This is the story of how Lucius Malfoy and Andromeda Black's relationship fell apart -- the story of how Andromeda didn't run away from her family because she was in love with a Muggleborn, but because she was in love with a pureblood she knew she could never realistically be in a relationship with.
Ubi Amor, Ibi Dolor is Latin for: Where there is love, there is pain. DH Spoilers and Sexual Situations are both VERY minor, but just in case.
Summary: Multum In Parvo is Latin for: Much in little (small but signifigant).

A one-shot musing on a Lucius/Andromeda relationship. Was written pre-DH (and it shows), but I would like to think this scene still happened one way or another. ;)
Summary: They’re coming for me. I know they are; I know they’re sending them for me right now. I’ve gotten used to the things after all those years in Azkaban, but at least in Azkaban the walls of my cell protected me from them. Now there is nothing protecting me, now there is no barrier between us, now nothing is stopping those dementors from swooping down upon me and sucking away my soul in less than a blink of an eye.
Barty Crouch Jr. is bound to the floor, waiting for the dementors to come. Struggling to remain concious, he tries to fight off the dementors, wildly summoning a memory from his youth. . . . Slightly AU because Crouch was actually unconcious in GoF, when the dementors came for him. Mental Disorders warning just to be safe.
Written originally for the June One-Shot challenge.
Summary: Her spine curled against the base of the tree, she watched the bird perched on a branch above her head carefully. Its bright yellow feathers seemed to glow slightly in the dark, its small beak opening and closing in endless chatter.
“Silencio,” she whispered, aiming her wand at the little creature. The bird’s twitters quieted, its beak parting in silence now. She needed the thing muted for the next step, the more important one, otherwise neighbors may come intrude. And that was the last thing she wanted.
Summary: The final battle with Voldemort is over, but Luna still has some things that need to be resolved for her to move on with her life. . .things that involve a tall, red-head man. She does not know if she will be able to make a difference, but she does know that she needs to be heard.

Summary: It wasn’t enough. It was never enough. How could it ever be? His whole life had been one error, one failure after another. No matter what he did to redeem his errors, make up for them, compensate in some way, it did not matter. And it never would. Because now, lying here in this hospital, his heart threatening to stop at any moment, now it did not matter. He had failed; there were no ‘ifs’ or ‘buts’ about it. He had failed them, he had failed himself…and he had failed her.
A regret filled Severus and Hermione tale.
