Author has written 37 stories for Harry Potter.
[Update: 05/04/2021] My name is Marci and I have been absent from this site since 2010. I stopped writing for awhile and then I forgot my password, and then stopped using the associated email; I have since recovered the email and this account.
I'm rusty as far as writing goes these days. I'm also maybe a little out of touch with the Harry Potter realm so I plan to reread the books and my own stories and try to get back into things. Please be aware that most of my stores are older and predate the end of the war, predate certain tropes like 8th Year. I've been immersing myself in the fandom lately and soaking in as much as I can, which is a lot considering that more than a decade has passed. Thank you to all of your brilliant fanfic writers out there who, just by existing and sharing their stories, have encouraged me to continue on as well.
I started writing on this website in 2001 under the name Marci for Dragonball Z and in 2003 under the name EternalOphelia for Harry Potter. I found it very relaxing to write Harry Potter fan fiction, though somehow I lost my drive--I think I just had less and less time until one day I had stopped altogether. A few years back I attempted to get back into my account and start writing again, but was unsuccessful. I do hope that I can revive some of these stories.
For the most part my stories are Hermione/Draco.
Note: I am happy for any advice/suggestions anyone might have regarding my stories. Or perhaps thoughts on which stories I should focus on first or which could make a good sequel.
Missed you! Missed this world! :) :) :)

The purpose of the detention: for the two long-time enemies to get along.
Hermione's Baby: Three unlikely students (Hermione, Ron, and Draco) are found together, unconscious by the lake.

But that is by far the least of their worries when they are informed that Hermione is 3 months pregnant, no matter how much she protests that she's a virgin.
Time: The Trio are lying low in the woods, awaiting a Death Eater attack. They correspond as much as they can with the Order of the Phoenix.

When the Death Eaters finally do attack Hermione, Ron, and Harry a lot more happens than anyone could have anticipated.
Ties: There is a secret tradition at Hogwarts known as "The Ties", nearly as old as the school itself. Each year the graduating class meets at an agreed upon location, at an agreed upon time. From there, the top girl or boy of that year's class is in charge and he/she alone is responsible for keeping the tradition alive.

The Words You Wrote: As the war approaches, Hermione spends her last days at home with her parents who she hasn't the heart to tell what's to come, or even that she's leaving. It's nearly impossible for her to sleep more than a few hours at once, so to pass the time she reads.

But, as time goes on and Hermione is no closer to getting the desired info, she finds that spending alone time with Draco isn't as bad as she once thought.

Let Go: A songfic set to the song "True To Your Heart" by Stevie Wonder. Hermione has a major crush on Draco. She tells Ginny and Harry, but deliberately neglects to inform Ron.

She and Draco had been sleeping together, on and off, up until she meets David, who she becomes exclusive with very quickly. Draco realizes, after its kicked into his head, that he just might like Hermione as a bit more than a sleeping buddy, but is he too late?
My Only Regret: A story told in Hermione's POV. It takes place during the war, though the beginning is set in the students' sixth year at Hogwarts.

Works In Progress:
The Phoenix and the Raven: Only in conceptual phase right now. Post-war, semi AU. Draco redeemed himself during the war by switching sides and agreeing to be a spy for the Order. He still has a long way to go to gain the trust of his colleagues. And then there's the awful truth of his past, his worst war crime, which haunts him to this day. Oh and there's of course a secret Hermione has been keeping. Or two.
The Deep End: a shorter fic taking place over about a week, each chapter representing a day. Hermione invites friends to her family's lake house and there's more than a little tension between her and a certain blond Slytherin.
Mission: Draco Malfoy: The story begins 1 year after the war is over, with the Light Side winning. Hermione and her friends work for the Ministry and are fairly content with their lives, dealing with their losses as best as they can. That is, until the Minister of Magic gives Hermione the worst possible assignment, an assignment that changes her life in more ways than she could have possibly imagined. I really want to finish this one.
Voldemort's Revenge: The sequel to "Hermione's Baby". Draco and Hermione are married and live at Malfoy Manor with their son, Dante, and Draco's birth mother, Melantha. But life, predictably, isn't always smooth. They have only 6 months of peace before horrible news darkens their door.
Bloody Revenge: The story takes place long after the war is over, having been won by Voldemort and his Death Eaters. Harry Potter was killed by Voldemort at The Final Battle at the end of the war, along with so many others from the Light Side. Voldemort is in control of the Wizarding World and has plans to take over the Muggle World as soon as all rebellions are put down. Unbeknownst to him and the Death Eaters, however, some key fighters for the Light Side are still alive and want revenge. Finishing this soon. Writing final chapters and have them mapped out.
Clean Up: The sequel to Infinite Mess. This story is on hold.
As a writer, I am also a reader. I read constantly. On this website I have come across some other writers who I believe are ranked in the top ten of this site (if there was such a thing). Likewise, there are several stories that I simply couldn't live without. It takes a lot in a story for me to say, "Hey, that's a favorite", so if it's on my list and you trust my judgment, then take a look at my favorites. I'm willing to bet that you won't be disappointed.
[Update: 05/03/2021] I also plan to reread this list of Favorites and update accordingly.
In many of my stories, there are characters that I made up, fitting them in where I please to suit my story's needs. All of them are my own creation, and almost every one of them is named with intention, meaning that I look up names with certain meanings. Sometimes I simple like a name and give it to a character, but usually the name has meaning, so, when you come across one of my characters, look up their name and see what it means.
The reason I add so many of my own characters into Harry Potter fanfiction is because I wish to one day become an author myself (currently still a dream!).
