Author has written 10 stories for Twilight, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who.

UPDATE 31st DECEMBER 2014:

I'm sad to announce that, due to various circumstances, I have chosen to take From The Ashes down from FFNet. All other WIP stories are on hiatus, but I may in future remove some other Star Wars stories and some anti-Twilight stories and instead archive them here on my LiveJournal. I am deeply regretful for this - I was hoping to have finished From The Ashes and my journals & ice cream series several months ago - but I'm in the middle of a Masters degree and am working two jobs, making it very difficult for me to dedicate any time to my fanfiction. My sincerest thanks to everyone who has reviewed and supported my stories over the last several years!

Once again, a massive thank-you to everyone who has supported me over the years, and my sincerest thanks to everyone for being so understanding.

Regards,

Estora


Hello! I am known as Estora here on the Pit of Voles and on Archive of Our Own. I have a second FFNet account where I post some Star Wars stories, under the name MsEstora. I am also known as ladywindupbird on Tumblr! I'm from Down Under and I have ambitions of becoming a published author one day (don't we all?), but my career path is more leaning towards international relations at the moment. This is subject to change, however.


journals & ice cream

Harry Potter post-Nineteen Years Later epistolary series. An eight-story series detailing the intersecting lives of Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley, and quite a lot of their respective offspring. A series of life, family, friendship, and a lot of ice cream. And quite a few evil plots that need to be stopped along the way.

All eight of the stories can be read individually, but for obvious reasons the narrative is richer if read all together and viewed as greater than the sum of its parts. (Regular readers will know by now that there is an overarching storyline.) Below are the story summaries for each in the series - be warned, there are spoilers! I hope you enjoy these as much as I am enjoying writing them!

1. Draco Malfoy and the Trials of Single Parenthood
Complete. Draco Malfoy: ex-Death Eater, former bigot, divorcee, and single father. His wife left him for Viktor Krum, his children worship the Weasleys who clash with the decor, something is rotten at Hogwarts, and he doesn't really know what he's doing. But maybe he's getting the hang of it.

2. Draco Malfoy and the Perils of Dating
Complete. There are a lot of things wrong with Draco Malfoy's life right now, not least of which being him forced into speed dating by Ronald Weasley. Still, it's better than sulking alone at home now that his children are both off at school, right? Well, maybe. It would certainly help if there wasn't a serial killer on the loose.

3. Ronald Weasley and the Midlife Crises
Complete. So, things have been a bit strange for Ron over the last three years. Between an unlikely friendship with Draco Malfoy and his son begging to go to a Muggle school instead of Hogwarts, there is only so much time he can dedicate to his midlife crisis (and subsequently Harry's. And Hermione's. And Ginny's. And Malfoy's.) Even less than he thought, actually, now that he's just stumbled across a Ministry conspiracy. And all of Hufflepuff has disappeared, but no-one's really worried about that.

4. Lorcan Scamander and the Year of Raging Hormones
Complete. All Lorcan Scamander wants to do is get through his final year at Hogwarts smoothly. Too much to ask for, he supposes, because: Rose has bullied Scorpius into dating her, Albus is sulking, Lysander has decided death-defying stunts is the best way to get attention, James is building barricades in the corridors, Hugo's on the hunt for the elusive Hogwarts "GossipGhost", and Lily keeps messing around with the space-time continuum. And his not-so-private journal has become the school slut.

5. The Invention of Hugo Weasley
In progress. It’s only fair, I suppose. I ruined our friendship with a single word; she destroyed my career with a single sentence. She was a lot classier about it, though. After a disastrous evening, Hugo finds himself desperately trying to win back Livia Malfoy’s affections. His efforts would be a lot easier if his most dangerous invention hadn’t been stolen… and now all of Wizarding Britain has lost their magic.

6. We Need To Talk About Lily
Future. (Summary to come)

7. The Vanishing Act of Hadrian Malfoy
(Summary to come)

8. The Time Traveller's Husband
(Summary to come)
