This journal was created for my fanfics, other writings and random thoughts. I'm an HP canon-based shipper and focus mostly on Harry and Ginny, though I include glimpses of other couples as well. Both fics are finished; you can read them here or at Archive of Our Own, where a bonus one-shot is also posted.

Starting Over
Ginny waited a year for Harry to defeat Voldemort, convinced that he would eventually come back to her.  But, the war is over, now, and Harry, Ron and Hermione are swept away in the wizarding world's celebratory tide while Ginny stays home to help rebuild her family after Fred's death. The weeks pass with no word from Harry and an old friend begins to fill the emptiness. Just as she loses hope and decides to move on with her life, evil intrudes and turns her world upside down. Even Harry may not be able to make things right again.

Inner Demons (the sequel to Starting Over)
Long-distance relationships are hard under normal circumstances, but Harry and Ginny don’t have the luxury of living normal lives. Their relationship is put to the test when Ginny returns to school and Harry stays behind to continue his Auror training. Ginny realizes her greatest challenge may be in coming to terms with Harry’s fame and dangerous line of work and deciding if she can make the sacrifices needed to be part of his life.

Feel free to friend me. Concrit and friendly feedback welcome.

Looking for a fic...

So, HP-HBP was on ABC Family tonight and the scene with Harry and Ron talking about Ginny's skin reminded me of a fic I read based on that conversation. I think the story was titled "Skin" and that shocolate was the author (maybe?), but I can't find any of her fics anywhere. Does anyone have it or know where I can find it? Thanks!

Inner Demons now complete at AO3

Where's Harry?

I looked everywhere for Harry Potter stuff in the stores today and found next to nothing. Target had a few of the paperback books, and Walmart had nothing but double-feature movie DVD's. I just wanted an inexpensive trinket to put in with the gift for my 21-year-old nephew (who's not a fan) -- a little inside joke between us -- but the only thing I could find was a $13 sticker book. What happened to all of the STUFF -- the legos and bookmarks and toys and... and... STUFF? Has the Potter era passed? Has Harry been defeated by a HOBBIT? OMG I'm in mourning!

Author's Notes:  I want to express my deepest thanks for Ash and Min, without whom this story would never have been readable or finished, and for my readers, who have kept me going with kind encouragement and stuck with me over a much too long journey. Those of you in the U.S., enjoy your Thanksgiving feast and all of you remember to always give thanks for the most important thing -- the people in your lives.

Prologue


Inner Demons is finished!

I just worked in Ash's edits and sent the final chapter and epilogue off to Min. After she has time to look them over, I'll make the final tweaks and be finished!! Wow! What a ride. I checked the other day and discovered that I started this story on Sept. 14, 2008 -- more than FOUR years ago!!!! But it was fun and so worth it.

Anyway, here's the posting plan -- PLAN being the operative word, don't shoot me if things don't work out:
  • Chapter 58 -- Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22)
  • Chapter 59 -- Monday, Dec. 10
  • Chapter 60 -- Christmas morning
  • Epilogue -- Christmas evening
And before you ask, NO, I will not be writing another sequel. I've got an original novel started and I really want to get back to it. Speaking of which, NaNoWriMo calls...
