Lady A. Rethe's Awfully Horrible Fanfics That You TOTALLY Do Not Want to Read (Kidding, Dears):
Rainbow of Gold: My first Twilight fic. I am so proud of it!
Padfoot's Perceptions: What's funny about this is that I decided to write a chapter from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban from a certain someone's point of view for English and I had so much fun I though y'all would enjoy it too. (PS. I got an A.)
HogwartsOnLine: A roleplay with my sister, Arda Silverlace. Lily, James, and the rest discover IM-ish devices. Update: It was deleted because it was so awesome (and violated rules I didn't know existed).
Saturnine: A pretty Phantom of the Opera phic. It shall be my "summer fling". Giggle. Okay. More like 2005-2006 fling. I've yet to finish it. I will try to do so this summer!
A Girl Like You: Bad, little songfic about the Mediator. Ignore it, better ones will come eventually. If I'm not a lazy bum.
Horror Vacui: A fun little Mediator back-in-time fanfic, if I do say so myself. If only I weren't such a sluggish updater... On hiatus at the moment. Darnit, it was just getting good!
