Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter.

Name: Menghan (pronounced like "Megan")

What you might want to know...

I'm more inclined to write one-shots because I completely lack discipline when it comes to finishing stories, and it's horrible when you get really hooked on a good fanfic and then the author forgets about their account. (coughdraigonfirecough)

Just because I love writing and write a lot does not mean everyone should be forced to read all the drivel that comes out of my head. And that's why I have only a few stories posted.

The biggest point about my fanfics is that in whatever I write, I try my hardest to stick to the basic canon because I worship the story JKR has given us. But, being hopelessly romantic in my shipping (D/G), I'll still be trying to find any loopholes I can ("To Be a Hero").

i.e. The ending of Deathly Hallows. Beautiful, to be sure, but any hardcore D/G shipper will tell you that it was still slightly devastating.

Just FYI...

Ships: Ron/Hermione, Draco/Ginny. Draco/Harry is also acceptable in my world, but Snape/Hermione most definitely is not.

Other Books: The Series of Unfortunate Events, Amy Tan's, Tamora Pierce's, His Dark Materials, the Bartamaeus Trilogy, Pride and Prejudice, Grapes of Wrath, The Brothers Karamazov

Right, then. If you came looking for a story and are disappointed with the short list, just check out the favorites section - my taste in fanfiction isn't terrifying, you know.

Time Turner by VickyVicarious reviews
"This story does not have a happy ending, as you'll soon learn. It might have, once. I'm sure there was a point, along the way, that something happened, something that ruined everything. I'm sure. But the problem is, I can't find it." D/G

Trevor the Toad, Matchmaker by Tierfal reviews

Painting an Oyster by Tiny Q reviews
Ginny's a dog person and Draco's a, well, Draco's a Draco person. So what happens when the two stumble across each other years after they graduate? Sparks, that's what. However, neither of them realises what is happening until it is far too late...

How To Shut Hermione Up by ZAPBETH reviews

Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans by sheltielover reviews
That’s right, I admit it. I, Ronald Weasley am hopelessly head over heels for Hermione Granger, and I hate it. Ron Mione one shot, give it a try!

100 Moments
Unofficial participant in the DG Forum's 100 Drabbles in 100 Days competition! Several - maybe eventually 100 - Draco/Ginny moments to make you laugh, cry, and throw your hands up in the air as you wish they were canon. But you know what? Maybe they are.

To Be a Hero reviews
WARNING: DH SPOILERS. With the end of the series ended a lot of shipping dreams, no matter how implausible those dreams may have been. One last contribution to the romantic and tragic DG pairing, and amazingly, it stays true to canon. Oneshot.

Anything but Indifferent reviews
A little something to shake those firm foundations of belief we all have concerning our dearest conniving Slytherins. Embark on a dark adventure that will include things you always wanted to know as well as things you probably never cared to ponder.

A Trick of the Light reviews
Oneshot. A little twist to the Final Battle. My view of the ultimate end. Fighting’s kept to a minimum. Pairings? I’d ruin it if I told you.
