Author has written 25 stories for Harry Potter.
Note: My profile is really long now! Here are the basics: I love Harry Potter, I'm a Slytherin and proud, I'm on here to improve my writing, I accept beta and story requests and I'm on DeviantArt as RachaelHasAnA and on FictionPress and NaNoWriMo as me (Rachael With an A).
Here's my in-detail profile. Feel free to skip this bit and go straight to my stories (please review! I'll give you a panda...) if you don't want to trudge through miles of details about my life.

Disclaimer (please read!)
I signed up because I was inspired by other fanfictions on this site and started writing one of my own, and I wanted to publish it to see what you guys thought. It's called The Choir and is a work-in-progress, I've so far written about 4 chapters, but I've put it on hiatus for the moment so I can edit it to adapt to the Granger Enchanted Eighth Year Itch Challenge. I've also written several oneshots for competitions and starting another multichapter once the oneshot as it currently stands is judged/shown to my English teacher, and I'm currently writing up the first few chapters of a Marriage Law fic (I know, I know! It's been done before..!) My primary aim writing here on FF.net is to gain feedback on my writing - I love long reviews and constructive criticism! However, any flames will be used to toast marshmallows.
I'm 14 years old, I live in the UK and although this is an American website according to Wikipedia I will be using the Queen's English in my stories! No offence to you guys across the pond but the way you spell colour is a pet hate of mine, along with the way you call jam jelly and jelly jello - why??? (However I will Beta according to American spellings if asked!)
I think I'm a little bonkers but I'm fairly intelligent too; I just started taking my GCSE's so this is kind-of my release therapy I think. Is that the right way to put it? I don't know. Not many of my friends know about my writing of fanfiction - I think maybe one of them suspects but other than that not even my mum knows! My English teacher knows about it, but that's it. I guess that makes it a secret obsession of mine. Kind-of. Yes, obsession is the right word. EDIT: No longer secret! And my friends don't think I'm as weird as I thought they would! :D
Hopefully all you lovely people will review my stories and PM me if you want, odds are I'll reply as not many people talk to me on here... Joking! Major deliberate guilt trip there. But Siriusly, (pun intended) not many people review or PM me so feel free to drop me a line!
Love, hugs and big cuddly pandas if you want them,
Rachael (with an A!!) :) xxx
I'm serious about that! Anyone who reviews any of my stories will receive a virtual panda courtesy of moi.
I've written 21,087 words out my target of 1,084,170, the number of words in the Harry Potter series. (This number is actually irrelevant because I can't be arsed to do any maths at the moment.)

None of this applies if the story is poorly written, obviously. If you can find any decent stories for any on the "occasionally a stowaway" and "deliberately sink" ships, try and convince me. I bet you can't! ;)

WolfStar Shipper - This space is reserved for the person that manages to convince me of the canonoscity of the ship WolfStar, which will be determined in my comp The Great Debate Competition: Is WolfStar Canon?. That has not happened as yet.
I DON'T HAVE A WIFE :'( OFFERS CONSIDERED! (It depends on how much I love you..)
We created Katcup and Dramione. We invented incest and human/animal fluff. We went where no other author has ever been before, for fear of being molested by canon fans. We did the impossible and wrote the improbable and imagined the unimaginable and loved the illogical. We are the fanfiction authors.
I, Rachael With an A, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.
I have joined the review revolution.
I borrowed this from PurpleLilyStar, who borrowed it from UnicornsAndRainbows20089.
List Twelve fictional characters from the same book/movie/TV Show.
1. Luna Lovegood
2. Harry Potter
3. Hermione Granger
4. Draco Malfoy
5. Pansy Parkinson
6. Neville Longbottom
7. Ginny Weasley
8. Ron Weasley
9. Albus Dumbledore
10. Lily Potter I
11. Tom Marvolo Riddle/Tom Riddle Jr./Lord Voldemort/You-Know-Who/et cetera.
1. Have you ever read a Six/Eleven fanfic before?
I don’t think that would ever happen to be honest. Ew.
2. Do you think Four is hot? How hot?
Oh my God. Don’t even. He is the hottest guy in the series – scratch that, on the planet! And he’s a Slytherin - comme moi, of course!
3. What would happen if Twelve got Eight pregnant?
That would be an extremely AU fic. Especially if it was Ron that got preggers.
4. Do you recall any fics about Nine?
Meh, I’ve read a fair few fics with him in them (My Immortal, anyone?)
5. Would Two and Six make a good couple?
I guess, if they were both gay that is…
6. Five/Nine or Five/Ten?
Ewww. Neither. The most likely is probably Pansy/Dumbledore, though. I can imagine her attempting to hop into his bed for a few better marks!
7. What would happen if Seven walked in on Two and Twelve in an awkward situation?
I don’t think Ginny would be very happy about her boyfriend fucking a house-elf, do you?
8. Make up a summary of a Three/Ten fic.
Ummmm… Lily miraculously lives after Voldemort “killed” her in Godrics Hollow, although apparently she is now both lesbian and a paedophile. What happens when Harry brings his best friend Hermione home for tea?
9. Is there such a thing as One/Eight fluff?
Yes, Ron/Luna fics are quite a common subplot in Dramiones, aren’t they?
10. Suggest a title for a Seven/Twelve hurt/comfort fic.
Hot Chocolate Should Always Be Drunk at Three in the Morning. Aww, you've gone and given me a plot bunny!
11. What kind of plot would you use if you wanted Four to go out with One?
Draco: I can’t deal with being a Death Eater! I have to kill myself!
Luna: It’s okay, my craziness will heal you of your sorrows.
Draco: Wow, thanks Loony! Wanna snog?
12. If One and Five got together, Would One's ex get together with Seven?
I suppose, if everyone in the series was homosexual?
13. Create a title for a Four/Nine humour fic:
Prefect in Trouble, or Is He? I think???
14. Would Five and Eight make a good couple?
I guess, if Pansy stopped being such a bitch? There are quite a few fics shipping them as a subplot, aren't there?
FANFICTION = THE UNITED NATIONS!!
Has anyone else noticed how a lot of us get along and make friends on here we can be from completely different countries?!? We're here making world peace on the INTERNET and we have all those ambassadors and senators and whatever struggling with it!! If you realize this (or read this and agreed) copy and paste this into your profile and add your name and country (country is optional) to the list.

I am the girl that doesn't go to school dances, or games, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on Facebook, or talking to a girlfriend on a cell phone or regular phone. I am the girl that hasn't been asked out in a year. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain. BUT I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn't care if people call her weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with HP and THG, who can express herself better with words than actions, who doesn't need a guy to complete her, and knows the importance of the little things. Copy and paste this onto your account, and add your name to the list, if you are anything like me, so the girls who are different and unique can know in their weakest time that they are unique but not alone: Iheartjake, TeamJacob101, Boysareadrag, The Dawn Is Breaking, secilmis yazar, Holly Marie Fowl, ReadrOfBooks, Suki-Alanna, Rachael With an A,
OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
Websites other than Fanfiction!
I'm on FictionPress as Rachael With an A, where I will mainly be publishing poetry with quite dark/angsty themes, though I might write up some of my old stories to upload there.
My Tumblr account is rachael-with-an-a, and I post mainly HP, Sherlock, Nerdfighters and general fangirlyness stuff. If you're on FFN and you post one of the above, chances are I'll follow you back ;)
I'm taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo in July 2013, and I'm on there as Rachael With an A. It's my first time, so wish me luck! If you're taking part, high five! PM me your username so I can request to be in a cabin with you ;) I'm also taking part in regular NaNo this November.
I'm on deviantArt as RachaelHasAnA because someone took WithAnA :( It's mainly photography on there at the moment.
I'm on Twitter as of right now and I'm still learning how to use it, but my username is @RachaelHasAnA. Feel free to stalk me ;)
I'm on Pottermore as DreamDragon16747, add me if you want but I don't really understand how it works sooo...
My Youtube account is RachaelHasAnA but I don't actually do much on there so the only thing I really do is message people and listen to music.
I'm debating whether to get a LiveJournal account. People who are on it - is it worth it?
I am not a prolific author. I am not rich. I am not famous across the globe, or at all if I'm honest.
Therefore, I own nothing but the plot, the actual writing (duh) and any OCs mentioned or used in my fanfictions.
Just thought I should put this on my profile in the likely event it's missing from a fic, 'cause I'm a bit ditzy like that!
It should at least be at the start of any of my multichapter fics though.
