Let me say this first off: I'm a huge Remus/Tonks shipper. I have loved the pairing ever since I first read about them and I was crushed when they died in DH (main reason why I tend to write AU for them post-DH). For this reason a lot of my stuff will concern Remus/Tonks, but there are times when I stray away... to Teddy Lupin (and others).

I first discovered fanfiction before the release of HBP and found it absolutely fascinating, but then school work took over and I didn't have time to read it. After the release of DH, I found it again and was even inspired to write my own (however my older stuff is horrible, so don't try to Google it). I absolutely love writing fanfiction and will spend time coming up with different plots and thinking of odd situations for my characters, especially for my OCs (whom I adore). I love reading and writing romance, which most likely the reason why I try to pair up all of my OCs with someone.

A Mix of Alliances and Sentiments- My first fic validated on this site and the darkest fic I've ever written. Through this, Demetri and Genevieve have become one of my favorite couples I've ever written. The problem is, I keep coming up with companion pieces for this fic or alternate stories for them. Maybe I should put other characters in the place of them....

As the Rain Fell- Ever since I read "House of Gaunt" in HBP, I've always felt sorry for Merope. I've always wanted to write a fic on her and Tom Riddle Sr. and this allowed me to do that. I'm very proud of this one.

Just Like Me- As mentioned before, I love Remus and Tonks and I always imagined the Marauders somewhat close to the Tonks family. That's how this story came about.

Seeking a Reason- My newest fic on here. I've had the idea in my head for some time, but I could never get it on paper. This fic also broke my "one fic at a time" rule. Hopefully, I will continue to write this, as it gives me a good break from all the dark/angst that comes from my other chaptered fic.

No Matter the Circumstances- Remus/Tonks and an early favorite for me, though Just Like Me changed that. This was written about a year ago, so my writing has greatly changed since.

A Burning Complication- Teddy/Victoire oneshot written for the Third Task Mini-Gauntlet on the forums. Charlie Weasley also makes an appearance. Sweet, fluffy piece.

Black Horse- A nice comeback for me into darker themes, and it has become one of my most recent favorite pieces. No dialogue (though there is speaking, but no formal tags) and in 1st person POV (my favorite POV to write).

Playing with Demons by mzap
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 53]


Do you remember that night
When I had to play your angel
Saving your soul?
Even though you were holding on tight
A part of you was taken by the demons below.

When Nathaniel Nightingale escaped from Azkaban, Demetri and Genevieve knew their lives would eventually take another turn for the worst. For years, they sought to control the Purity of the Night's fight for power, but the group's new alliance may prove to be a frightful adversary. Nathaniel's own daughter has joined the rebel group, and her blood lust has already resulted in the deaths of many, including James Potter II. Demetri and Genevieve's greatest desire is to protect their daughter Fauna, who's own work in the Department of Law Enforcement has put her at a greater risk. However, Fauna has more to fear than her own skin as her secret relationship with William Huntington threatens to reveal itself in the midst of growing pureblood threats. The truth will have to come out when she is promised to another man... a man who resides right within the Purity of the Night.

This is the sequel to A Mix of Alliances and Sentiments.

Summary: Nine years after Genevieve Weasley began her lustful affair with Demetri Rosier, she begins to wonder if there's more to the relationship. No matter the answer, her connection with him has dragged her into the Purity of the Night, a group who hopes to bring the purebloods back to power, and their leader has his eye on Genevieve. Now he will stop at nothing to get her, but the cost of Demetri and Genevieve leaving could prove fatal.

Teddy Lupin, always having been suspicious of Demetri, starts keeping a closer eye on his fellow Auror as mysterious things happen between Demetri and Genevieve, beginning with her disappearance from the Auror office. He, and the rest of the extended family, are determined to find her and bring her back where she belongs... away from Demetri, who they believe could cause her more harm than good.

Seeking a Reason by mzap
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 32]

Summary: Five Reasons to Hate James Potter II:
1. He's arrogant (thinks he's the best thing to come into Quidditch... ha! Being a five time winner of Witch Weekly's most charming smile does not make you a Quidditch star)
2. He's a womanizer (there's only so many fans you can please, James)
3. He calls me a bad Seeker (oh, I'm sorry, I must have gotten the wrong impression when I caught the Snitch in front of your face twenty times)
4. On a broader note, he insults me in his interviews (honestly, my jabs aren't nearly as horrible)
5. He has this nagging little thing where he criticizes everything I do (next he's going to be telling me that I shouldn't start dating Felix Lupin)

If you ever ask Libby MacFarlan about James Potter II, prepare yourself for a long speech. She hates him. End of story. But when Quidditch rivalries get personal, egos start clashing and they soon find themselves in the midst of a scandal, involving nosy paparazzi, insulting news articles, obsessive fans, and one very jealous Felix Lupin. This could get complicated....

Excerpt from Chapter 7: The Kiss:

There had been the after party with her friends. Her parents had decided not to attend, Hamish feeling that he was too old for such parties. Nevertheless, the rest of the Montrose Magpies attended… and there had been drinks. Oh, Merlin. She must have gotten drunk again. That explained the hangover. And where in the world was her shirt?

Libby pulled herself up in a seated position, rubbing her temples. She found her shirt lying on a vase on the coffee table, carelessly thrown aside. She shivered and covered herself with a blanket. Felix suddenly jumped awake and averted his eyes when he saw Libby.

“Oh, you’re awake,” he said. Slowly, he got up and walked across the room, headed towards the kitchen area. “Would you like some juice?” he asked, turning to look at her.

She turned around. “Y-y-y-yes,” she yawned. “Felix, what happened last night?”
