Bio:

Hello and welcome to my author page.

A little bit about me: My name is Lei, and I am a 19-year-old college sophomore pursuing a degree in English and Political Science. I am currently based in Canada, but I am originally from the Philippines and I have traveled extensively up and down the east coast of the United States. My biggest, most ambitious dream is to backpack across Europe and get paid to write while traveling all over the world.

Some of you may remember me as a moderator for Mugglenet Fan Fiction. From the fall of 2005 to the fall of 2006, I served on staff as the category mom for James/Lily and as a frequent dabbler in Marauder Era, Harry/Hermione, and Dark/Angsty. Concurrently, I also served as Hufflepuff's prefect on the Beta Forums with PhysicalGraffiti as my Head of House. I left moddom when I was 16, but returned a year later to help with the release of Deathly Hallows. I've not been back since then.

My works: I write mainly about the Marauders, especially Remus and Sirius, but I've also written a couple of Trio era fics. My favourite pairings to read and write are Harry/Hermione (proudly delusional!), Remus/Lily, Remus/Hermione, and James/Lily. I almost always write dark and angsty material, and I can guarantee that in nearly all of my works, I do include sensitive matters such as strong language and substance abuse. Click and read at your own risk, and please exercise utmost discretion when you do.

Most of my stories on this site are very outdated, but I do have a couple of new one-shots, which are the ones I recommend you to start with if you are new to my writing. Such works are: Drink, Declaration, To Armageddon and Back, Butterflies and Hurricanes, Weight, and 'Tis the Night.

With regards to Clair De Lune, I have been on hiatus from working on it ever since I started college over a year ago. Rest assured that I have every intention of finishing it; however, it will take me a bit more time, given that I've been finding it extremely difficult to immerse myself in that universe again (not to mention that I tend to cringe at my earlier works, but I digress).

In the meantime, I've just posted the prologue and the first chapter of After the Agony, a chaptered dystopian story set nearly a century after Harry's death. Please do check it out and let me know what you think!

How to contact me: Please do not hesitate to shoot me an email or poke me on AIM (taintedVirtuoso) if you wish to speak with me. I also have a writing journal where I post outtakes and such other things that I cannot upload onto MNFF. All of this information can be found here on my author page.

Hope you enjoy reading my stories, and if you have time, please do let me know what you think in a review.

Be safe,

Lei.

Stories by Astrid Skywalker

After the Agony by Astrid Skywalker
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary: Decades after Harry Potter’s death, a new political order emerges—one even more powerful and influential than Voldemort and his Death Eaters had ever been. The English Magical Alliance, a powerful division of the Wizengamot with fascist tendencies, takes hold of the Ministry in a mostly non-violent revolution. England is then plunged under strict authoritarian rule, where wizards are forbidden from associating with Muggles, public transport is closely monitored, and political dissidents are sent to Azkaban to be tortured and killed.

26-year-old Catherine Thomas is a graduate student at The Conservatory, a post-Hogwarts institution founded by Rowena Ravenclaw herself, interning as an assistant to the History of Magic professor at Hogwarts. A professor in training and a historian at heart, she prides herself on being an advocate of accuracy and the preservation of historical fact. But when the Party instructs her to rewrite Harry Potter’s biography and tailor it to the Party’s ideals, she sees the opportunity of a lifetime: a window to success and a chance to advance within the Ministry. Suddenly she is thrust into a world full of lies and political strife—where choice is the ultimate weapon and integrity is most in danger of disappearing. Will she be able to follow through with her loyalty to the Party, or will her innate desire for the truth urge her to write Harry’s story as it is?

Summary: It is not the full moon, nor an alcoholic night gone wrong, nor a day before finals. No. It is the first meeting of junior members of the Order of the Phoenix, and Remus is terrified out of his wits.

'Tis the Night by Astrid Skywalker
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 3]

Summary: He wanders aimlessly down the boulevard, allowing himself to be jostled by the rush-hour crowd. It is Christmas Eve, 1994: his first Christmas Eve away from England. He finds it utterly confusing.

A Sirius-centric one-shot. Written in Christmas 2008 for a dear friend. Hope you like it. =)

(It's been a while, I know, but I figured that if I added a couple of fics to MNFF, I'd be able to get my writing mojo back. We'll see. Fingers crossed. Lyrics are taken from Vienna Teng's "The Atheist Christmas Carol.")

To Armageddon and Back by Astrid Skywalker
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 6]

Clair De Lune by Astrid Skywalker
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 386]

Summary:

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.


RL/HG, Post-HBP


No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.
