Some information about my stories:
Truly, Deeply, Madly
Harry Potter. Love story about Albus Dumbledore and Minerva McGonagall. It begins with their very first meeting, her as a student and him as her professor. It leads through the various events in Minerva's life and how her friendship and love for Albus grows as a result. Often very fluffy, but also dramatic at points. This story reinterprets and reworks much of Harry Potter canon material. Rated T for some sexually suggestive material and minor swearing. NOW COMPLETE!
The Death of Spring
Hercules. Hades is given a prophecy by the Fates dictating that he must find a wife. So he kidnaps a pretty girl, as any Lord of the Dead would do. Turns out, she's a goddess and not too pleased to be in the Underworld. This story is now complete and 8 chapters long. It reimagines the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone which is taken from the Homeric Hymn to Demeter.

Harry Potter. Molly and Arthur Weasley need a new home. They have two young sons and a third on the way. Two bedrooms in London won't cut it anymore. Arthur finds their new home and surprises the rest of his family. Lots of romantic fluff and some very cute moments with young Bill and Charlie. One-shot.
Harry Potter. A typical eveing with Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy. She's upset and Lucius wants nothing more than to make her feel better. Rated M for sexuality. My first attempt at a lemon. They're the sexiest couple ever, so how could I resist?
Happy Little Family
Harry Potter. Sirius Black and Paige Diggory (OC from TDM) celebrate Harry Potter's second birthday. AU one-shot of the family spending a few happy moments together. Dedicated to Indigold10. Lots of fluff.
Lucky to Have You
Harry Potter. First in a series of "Missing Scenes" from TDM. Albus and Minerva share a very special Valentine's Day together. Fluff! One-shot.
Tales from the Past
Harry Potter. Another TDM "Missing Scene." Albus and Minerva each tell of a past relationship that helped them find each other. One-shot, fluff (I can't help it, I just love them so much!).
Falling Hook, Line, and Sinker
I had a recurring dream every time I watched Disney's Peter Pan where Captain Hook kidnapped me, and we fell in love, and I convinced him to stop trying to get rid of Peter Pan. This story sprung from that. Olivia Jones is kidnapped and goes on various adventures in Neverland, torn between what her head tells her is right and what her heart tells her she wants. Captain Hook/OC romance with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell friendship thrown in. Multi-chapter fic. NOW COMPLETE!
All That Was Needed
Harry Potter. "Missing Scene" from TDM. Minerva has a terrible nightmare six months after the loss of her daughter. She goes to Albus in the middle of the night for comfort. All she needs at first is his body loving hers. Then, when she tells him what bothered her, he is able to provide love and comfort to her heart and soul. Rated M for mild violence followed by very explicit sexuality. LEMON with drama, comfort, and a little bit of romantic fluff. One-shot.

NOW COMPLETE!
A Soldier's Homecoming
I love the movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and I was always a little upset that Professor Browne leaves at the end. This story is his return home to England and to Eglantine and the children. Fluffy and romantic and all around adorable, in my opinion. One-shot.
Bottom of the Sea
Mary Poppins. Songfic for "Bottom of the Sea" by Matt Nathanson. Mary Poppins has just been dismissed, and the world no longer makes sense. (I mean really, who would get rid of Mary Poppins!!??) But Bert, always the loyal friend, is there to comfort her. He suggests that they go down to the bottom of the sea. Romantic fluff, quick one-shot.
A Late Night Interruption
Will & Grace, season 2-3ish. I really love the older episodes then Karen and Stan were together and happy. Those two really loved each other, and I think it's sweet. I had a dream in which I was Karen and this general plot line occurred. As viewers, we obviously never saw the interaction between the Walkers, so I wanted to explore that. One-shot of Karen and Stan in the middle of the night, woken up by Stan's daughter, Olivia, who is about six years old here. Fluffy and humorous. One-shot, complete.

Tale of Two Sisters
Alias, Jack Bristow and Irina Derevko. One-shot between It's Never Long Enough and Finally Forever.

Irina tells him about her childhood and how Elena made Irina Derevko the woman she is. One-shot, complete.
Lovers in the Night
