Author has written 58 stories for Harry Potter.
Welcome to my profile page, I am your host, Romantic Silence.
What I truly enjoy writing about is the Harry Potter universe. There's something truly unique there that compels me to write fanfiction. I have yet to find another fandom where I have enough interests to write my own stories for. Regardless, I love the series.
I'm a major fan of Harry/Hermione stories where it has them as a couple. Even if the story was a Peter Pettigrew/Voldemort Slash Fiction, I would still read it if Harry and Hermione are together. Perhaps I'm exaggerating, but it's how I feel. Honestly, I find their entire relationship to be inspiring and I always expected them to be together. J.K. Rowling had a great foundation to make an epic love story between the two in the first six books (yes, even the Half-Blood Prince). My thoughts on the Sixth Book was that every relationship has a 'down' moment, and I figured that's what the Half-Blood Prince would be, and that Harry and Hermione would eventually find love in one another in the climax of the final book. Unfortunately, I was wrong.
My stories, both published and sitting in my folders, tend to be from the point of view of Hermione Granger. I found her character to be extremely fascinating and great to write about. There has to be more stories that is centered around Hermione as the main character. Harry already has enough spotlight from the books anyway! I think the reason I have an easier time writing about Hermione is because of her intelligence and emotional maturity. Whenever I write through Harry's perspective, I feel myself constrained because some of the things I want Harry to do would be out of character (I tend to bring out his Slytherin side more often than his usual Gryffindor brashness).
The Consequences of Revisiting (Hiatus)
There comes a time when you're writing that a startling epiphany hits you. Well, for this story, I realized that what I was writing was the same old deal that I have seen before. The story I had laid out was slowly transforming into a cliche that I tried so desperately to avoid. Not to mention that some of the characterizations I had for some characters were downright lackluster. I was disappointed with the progress with what I was making. Therefore, I'm going to place this story on hold so I can rework the actual plot and suitably plan out where I'm going with this.
A Moment to Reflect (Hiatus)
This is actually one of my favorite stories to write. There is a shortage of Hermione-centric Post-DH stories out there, and I intend to rectify that. When I came to write this piece, I realized that Hermione is a truly wonderful and intellectually curious person. Not only is she much more mature than her school years, she still retains the same drive that made her want to succeed. In this case, Hermione is going to handle her relationships far better than in the past and will target revolutionizing the Ministry. Meanwhile, Harry will get a chance to just sit back and relax after nearly seventeen years of a madman after you.
From the End to the Start
'From the End to the Start' is my take on the timeless - no pun intended - take of the time traveling genre. However, the difference being from other Harmony Time-Travel stories is the fact that I cast Hermione Granger in the main role. She's no longer the little girl from the canon we all came to know and love, but instead a victim of the war that plagued her generation. I was interested to see where I would be going with this.
I have a lot of interesting ideas for 'From the End to the Start' that are far from the norm. An example would be the recent development in Harry and Hermione's relationship. Granted, I have already gotten several reviews who disliked what I did and believed it cheapened their love. As an avid analytical reader myself, I can understand their concerns. But rest assured, I do not want to pull ridiculous romantic cliches. The general focus of the story is not to write a romantic comedy, but a tale of Hermione Granger and Harry Potter developing into the person they should be.
This is my first attempt at an all-romance short story for the Harry Potter fandom. I'm actually quite excited writing it. A lot of people are turned off by the huge age difference between Harry and Hermione, but I don't mind. I understand completely why people would cringe when it came to that. However, a lot of my readers seems to believe that I'm going to begin a romance between an eleven year old and twenty-seven year old right away! I do not condone pedophilia!
The Warlock of Slytherin
This story is something I'm also excited to write. Prior to getting into Harry Potter fanfiction, I wrote a lot of original short stories. In many of these short stories, I often make the protagonist a young, charming man whose motives are not always clear. He is unbelievably cunning and is a magnificent bastard through and through. "The Warlock of Slytherin" would have Harry become something similar while keeping in line with his canon personality.
However, it wasn't because I wanted to write about a cunning character that led me to beginning this story. When I started this, I was previously reading a lot of fanfiction in which Harry had a twin brother. In many cases, they always make Harry out to be a wimp and is actually a secretly powerful individual. While I enjoy these stories from time to time, I grew tired of reading the same material. I wanted to completely reimagine the cliche of Twin!Harry and Slytherin!Harry.
All is Well
I wrote after being inspired by a remarkably well-done Youtube video. It's another Hermione-centric piece where she handles the aftermath of the war. I can't really say anything else without completely ruining the plot for would-be readers. All in all, this was a story I greatly enjoyed writing. I might come around to edit it at a later date to polish it up a bit.
What surprised me about 'Zenith' is how popular it was among my one-shots. I wrote this on a whim shortly after the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2after I was disappointed that Harry and Hermione didn't get together (even though I knew from the beginning they wouldn't). Essentially, Landon, the main character of the one-shot, is a generalization of all the zealous fans of the series and, additionally, Harmonians. Delusional as he may be, perhaps it was because of his somewhat whimsical nature that led him to be pretty well-liked?
His Last Lesson
The plot of this story emerged when I watched the scene in the Shrieking Shack where Snape was dying and later when Harry was looking through Snape's memories. I saw the resemblance of Snape's friendship with Lily being terrifyingly similar to Harry and Hermione's relationship. So I pondered, 'What if Snape acted unselfishly for once?' Thus, 'His Last Lesson' was born. This was another one of my stories where I was blindsided with its popularity in comparison to my other one-shots. It appears that a lot of people like Snape.
A Broken Swing
A writing experiment if I was capable of succeeding in writing Harmony without the use of dialogue. I believe I did alright, but disappointingly, few people read it and shared their opinions. I wasn't devastated, but it would have been nice to have more feedback on a work I was proud of.
My take on what happens after the epilogue. There's always something bittersweet when it comes to stories that makes the epilogue canon in their work. I incorporated its happy ending at the last minute, believing I should leave some hope out there that Harry and Hermione are going to be together even it meant reincarnating into their descendents.
The Last Dance
Ginny, alas poor Ginny, you have been transformed into a heartless, promiscuous woman in the eyes of the fandom. At least, those who support Harry/Hermione anyway. To be honest, I'm indifferent to Ginny. I probably would have accepted her being a partner to Harry if there had been more development on her part. I believe that's the reason why fans were dissatisfied when Harry and Ginny paired off. Regardless, I was tired of Ginny-bashing and wrote a small piece where she became her own woman...at the expense of losing Harry as a husband.
Charlie is such an obscure character and there's little information about his personality. So I entertained myself one night by writing a brief profile of his person. Needless to say, when I reread what I wrote, I thought, 'He's the perfect Weasley to convince Hermione to ditch Ron!' And he did. Now, Charlie is slowly becoming one of my favorite characters to use so long it's my characterization or something similar.
The Unseen Path
I was reading another fanfic - the title escapes me - about an emotional barrier that Harry put up and only Hermione was able to cross when my brain came up with a plot idea. You know how Harry and Hermione seems to sometimes be lost in their own world? Well, let's change up what happened in canon and look through Ron's perspective! I'm jealous of the bloke, he became a published author while I'm stuck writing fanfiction.
She Who Holds the Strings
I felt particularly wicked one day; the urge to be evil. Because I'm such a nice person, I couldn't stand the thought of doing bad. So I wrote this piece to show off a very naughty Hermione. I left a lot of parts vague as I wanted to encourage the readers to interpret what happened on their own. Besides, I think an evil Hermione is somewhat sexy.
Honestly, I wrote this when I grew wary of all the stories where Harry and Hermione dramatically get together. I wanted to write the two of them beginning a relationship based on their friendship and move on from there. I wanted it to be a natural step forward rather than something overflowing with angst and drama.
In the Midst of Death
I wanted to try my hand at poetry. I have always been rubbish at it, but my muse overtook me. While it could have been an original poem of my own, I was thinking of Harry and Hermione when I wrote it. I thought it was only fitting I publish it here.
A Frustrated Irishman
I was so surprised at how popular this one-shot was. This was my attempt to experiment in first-person in which the reader could not tell whether or not the person was actually thinking or saying it. Seamus just came to life on his own and I have to admit that I somewhat used him as an avatar. A reason why I chose Seamus was because of how boring he is often portrayed in fanfiction. I understand that there wasn't much character to begin with in canon, but at least make him lively! Why does almost everyone portray him as a drunken teen?
Curiosity Doens't Kill the Kneazle
It wouldn't have surprised me if Harry and Hermione had made love to one another at some point in time. Their intimacy and relationship seems to suggest many things. I experienced something similar to what Harry and Hermione had done, so I understand how monumentally courageous someone one had to be in order to entrust something precious to another person.
It's Too Late
This one-shot is my least favorite of all the fanfiction I have written. I don't like bashing characters and I always try my best to flesh the characters out. However, my friend suggested I try my hand at being vindictive towards Ron and this was the result. It's not my proudest work, but I would still openly display it for all to read.
By the Fireside
My friend and I were discussing some of my written works, both original and fanfiction. She suggested I write something short and sweet for her over Harry and Hermione. From then on, I spent about an hour or so writing "By the Fireside" and let my friend read it. She loved it and suggested I publish it.
