Aspire, Seek, Attain
Phoenix5225 is a 27 year old who has been writing off and on for the past 17 years. She finished her first "novel" at the tender age of eleven. Now she only writes on the side, choosing instead to pursue a more stable and boring job as a governmental accountant. In her very limited free time, she can be found reading or working on scrapbook albums with the crime drama television show Law and Order (the original or any of its spinoffs) on in the background.
On the forums, she is a member of the Bannermakers Associatin, Society of Potterverse Adults: Backstories and a member of the Beta Guild. She has a random obsession with Severus Snape, and Half Blood Prince may very well be her all time favorite book. Contrary to her name, she does NOT have a random obsession with Fawkes. Phoenix5225 was a member of a sorority in college which utilized the phoenix as a symbol. The crest in her author's page link is the crest of said sorority, and its motto, written on the banner in Greek, is Aspire, Seek, Attain.
Phoenix5225 lives in a small town in the heartland of America with her recently acquired husband and her nine year old twin stepsons.
Summary: Set against the backdrop of the cold, yet proud Durmstrang School, the Tri-Wizard Tournament is about to begin. Sixth-year James Potter is selected as part of a small delegation to travel to Durmstrang, one of whom will become the Hogwarts Champion. Amidst the pleasantry of the Tournament and the new friends that are made, one young man, with the help of his brother, is devising a sinister plot to become the most powerful wizard of the age. All he needs is a wand.
Summary: For Andrea's fabulous August One-Shot Challenge - the trial of Lucius Malfoy. It probably has more Muggle influence than wizarding, but what can I say - I'm a huge Law & Order fan.
I am Phoenix5225 of Hufflepuff, entering for participation points only. :-)
Summary: I've been wondering what happened between these two professional acquaintances, maybe even two friends, when she found out who filled Dumbledore's position at Hogwarts.
Note: There are DH spoilers inside.
Summary: Thanks to a brilliant theory/plot bunny from POTCgirl1337 over on the beta forums, this little one-shot emerged. What exactly happened when Dudley was attacked by the Dementors?
Summary: Written in response to Magical Maeve's marvelous New Year's prompts. I chose the Roman goddess of wisdom for my story, for reasons I, at least, find quite amusing, given her name. This is for Hufflepuff House (participation points only).
Summary: This fluffy little one-shot was written as part of the "From the Mods" MNFF birthday celebration collection. I encourage you to seek out that collection and read all the amazing one-shots by the even more amazing mods. They are wonderful people and I have been honored to call them friends.
Summary: It has been said that when a butterfly flaps its wings, the effects are felt on the other side of the earth. And so it is the same with our past. Every memory, every scene we have witnessed, every emotion we have felt, has shaped us into the people we have become. How is it that an event that occurred thirty years ago can affect an action today? How do we begin to understand this phenomenon so that we may alter the paths of our future? And most importantly, how will one man learn to love one woman, when for him, feeling affection for another has led to nothing but death?
Summary: I typically do NOT write poetry, with good reason. This is the first poem I have ever submitted to MNFF, in response to the Ballad Challenge for Hufflepuff House (particpation only). Sometimes, they just come to me, and come to me quickly. This is one of those times.
Summary: My version of the seventh book. It is canon compliant and theory infused. It will answer all the questions remaining - where are the Horcruxes? Is Snape on the side of good or evil? And most importantly, who will live, and who will die?
Summary: This was written in response to the Hufflepuff April Fools Humor stories as requested in the common room. This particular story was written for HP_Ber, who requested her story be written on the topic of a misunderstanding. Ron/Hermione romance.
Summary: A challenge fiction on the subject of betrayal - for the Spring Challenge #4 - Lamb to the Slaughter (though the betrayed is certainly no lamb!). By Phoenix5225, a fiercely loyal Hufflepuff.
Summary: She was lonely, and needed to get away. She thought Hogsmeade would make a good destination. As she entered the Shrieking Shack, she found the very last person she expected to see. She wanted to kill him, but just may end up saving him instead.
