Hello, I'm moonymaniac and I'm a Harry Potter addict. :) Actually, I'm a Marauder addict. Welcome to my profile.
UPDATE January 4, 2011 Wow...2011...Happy New Year to anyone still out there. :) So, obviously I didn't get anything posted before Christmas. However, with the helpful advice of my dear kehribar/Ayse, I have secured the services of a beta. Yay.... The very kind Colores has accepted my plea for help and agreed to beta. Thank you, Fresca! (and you, too, Ayse!) So, depending on the level of revision she suggests, and how long it takes to format (since my computer has gone all wonky on me. >.< *can't win*), the chapter should be up in the foreseeable future. :*) It is a fairly longish chapter, and she is new to the story and my writing, so it could be a while before I get it back and/or it could be a real mess, needing much revision. However, since it has already been almost 5 months...>.< I don't think another couple weeks is going to surprise anyone. *dies* My New Years resolution isn't to actually finish MoB...I've made that mistake before. But I do resolve to update a bit more regularly. To anyone still reading and waiting, I thank you for your patience. Happy New Year!
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
Summary: Lily Potter’s love and sacrifice for her son is legend. But there was another member of the Potter family. James Potter was more than an arrogant toerag who finally grew up, more than a Marauder, more than a member of the Order of the Phoenix. He was a father.
How on earth would a man like James Potter handle that responsibility, at the tender age of twenty, especially at a time when his world was crumbling all around him?
Summary: The Marauders are in their second year and it is a beautiful day. Of course James would want to play some Quidditch. But is Remus the athletic type?
This is just a little piece I wrote for Quidditch Tryouts on the MNFF Forums last fall. I see it as a companion piece to my larger fic, Moments of Bliss, a sort of missing scene, if you will.
