Author has written 54 stories for Harry Potter, Song of the Lioness, Star Wars, Maximum Ride, and Circle of Magic.

Name: Fran

Nickname: Moonshadow / Moony / Nal / Nightjar

Pen Name: Formerly known as Hell's Phoenix, in case of any confusion.

Fandoms: Harry Potter (JK Rowling); Tortall (Tamora Pierce); Circle of Magic (Tamora Pierce); Maximum Ride (James Patterson)

Note on fanfics: In future, all standalone stories will be posted only to my livejournal community nightjar_fics, and this account will be used solely for multi-chaptered stories (though they will also be posted to my livejournal). Most standalone stories which were deleted from this account can be found here, but since the creation of nightjar_fics, this list is no longer being updated.

Other: I also make icons, and the occasional larger graphic (mostly for manga and anime fandoms). If you're interested in seeing them, they can be found at my icon journal doodlmoon. My personal journal - though rarely updated - is under the pen-name moonshadow_nal.

Status Reports:

Hush - Complete.
The Chosen - Complete.
Lupines and Lilies - Complete.
Missing You - On hold until I finish working on "Licorice Sticks & Aniseed Balls".
Licorice Sticks and Aniseed Balls - Work in progress. An extensive note for chapter 15 can be found here.

Coming Soon (With Luck):

Treasure - Naruto AU, Gaara/Naruto & Kankurou/Sakura
A Team 7-centric story, focusing mainly on Naruto. The GaaNaru romance will probably be a pretty minor part of the story, and might even end up just being friendship. High-school-AU-type fic (because it's such an original idea), with Naruto, Sasuke & Sakura attending a state school, after having been home-schooled by Kakashi for several years while they moved from place to place (and lived in a motorhome). Note: I will be using the English school system for reference, as it is the one I am most familiar with (and since this is AU already, I figure that it can't do any harm).

Untitled #1 - Naruto AU, Gaara/Naruto
Girl!Naruto fic (though I don't intend to change his name, or his attitude). Mini Sasuke gets a crush on mini Naruto, & decides he wants to keep her. Far be it for his parents to deny him anything, and they have Naruto adopted into the Uchiha clan using some blood ritual which is supposed to give her the sharingan. Except that the as-of-yet-unawakened Kyuubi's healing power treats Naruto's changing eyes like they're diseased, & Naruto ends up very weak & sickly, because of an almost-constantly exhausted chakra supply. Cue Naruto not being allowed to go to the academy, then various time-skips until the Sound/Sand invasion. I haven't quite figured that part out yet.

The Violet Hour - Harry Potter/Circle of Magic Crossover, Harry/Briar
Set several thousand years after Deathly Hallows (and following all canon including the epilogue), an immortal Harry is living with a Trader family on Nidra Island. The outbreak of a new epidemic which only effects mages brings Rosethorn, Briar & the rest of the Circle to Nidra, where they meet Harry and two unusual mage-children who he's training.

IMPORTANT NOTE: ALL FLAMES WILL BE USED TO HEAT MY ENGLISH TEA!
And for those of you who need a more detailed version of the same thing, read my note on the topic.
