Ravenclaw - Magpie

The Power of Two - Fred & George - PG-13

For those of you who don't know, I started writing this story over three years ago. I most sincerely apologise for how long it has taken me to get to the end of it. I am finishing it today as a birthday present to my betrothed, the wonderful chiv, who has been pestering me to get it done for almost as long as we have been together.

I've drawn threads from a lot of my other fics into the last few chapters, but I hope it all makes sense. The epilogue especially ended up having a lot more to do with Harry and Remus than the Weasley twins, but it's fanfic, and I go where it takes me. If it was an original story for publication, I might have been more vigilant about the focus. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the results.

"Do we have to go through all the technical terminology?" Her tone now verged on impatience. "You know where babies come from, right?"

"Of course I do." His offended tone suggested that he did not see how this was relevant to the topic under discussion. "The man's potion goes in the woman's -- er -- cauldron, and they -- um -- stir it up and a new life starts."

Hermione could not decide whether to burst out laughing or give up and go back to bed. She stared at Ron in stunned amazement. "No! That's not -- it's because --" She shook her head. "Never mind. You just put this thing on and there's no baby, okay?"

Forgive - Phoenix Neal - PG - Harry/Ginny

Title: Forgive
Author: Phoenix Neal
Rating: PG, for adult themes (non-explicit discussion of adultery)
Pairing: Harry/Ginny
Disclaimer: J.K. Rowling owns everything, including my life. Oh, except the song lyrics, which belong to Rebecca Lynn Howard.
Warning: Mild Deathly Hallows spoilers, angst
Word Count: ~2500 (one-shot)
Summary: Ginny's world falls apart when Harry confesses he's cheated on her.
Author's Note: This is a songfic, based around the song "Forgive" by Rebecca Lynn Howard. The idea wouldn't leave me alone, so I wrote it. It hurt me, in a way, to write this piece because I hated the thought of Harry cheating. I stand by this work, though, as being very true to the characters' natures. I hope you'll agree. Comments and concrit appreciated!

( Accio fanfic! )

Special thanks to mollydiane, moremixtapesjadefic  , and Anamarie at Perfect Imagination for their service as beta readers. Their feedback, suggestions, and nitpicks have made this fic so much better. I love you guys(gals)!

~Phoenix, having posting jitters all over again!

P.S. HOLY CATS it took me forever to format the style on that... LJ, I hate you.

More Emotional Teaspoonry by Phoenix Neal - G

Title: More Emotional Teaspoonry
Author: Phoenix Neal
Rating: G
Pairing: the Trio. But not really as a pairing.
Summary: Hermione Granger explains Severus Snape.
Word Count: 500 words precisely
Disclaimer: The usual... JKR owns everything, including bits of my immortal soul
Warning: Deathly Hallows spoilers!
Notes: This is just a silly idea that came to me after finishing Deathly Hallows. Since I didn't feel like doing up a proper scene, I decided to make it precisely 500 words instead, so it would haver some sort of, erm... merit? Anyway, this is also my first "published" HP fanfic, so don't expect too much. ;) Comments and concrit are love.

Author's Note: My first Deathly Hallows fic! Ooh! This plot bunny would not leave me alone last night when I re-read Ch 23 with my heart aching for these two, nor all day today. This is also the first time I have written a completely different take on a scenario I had written before (in this case, Ron and Hermione's first time).

"Hermione," he murmured, voice rough with a despair that wrenched at her heart.

She tried to say his name, but her throat was torn and swollen from screaming. Muscles trembling with effort, she she squeezed his fingers in response.

Dear Severus,

I know you'll probably say "no", but I thought I'd ask anyway. I was wondering if you'd like to come over for a few days in August and stay with my family in Surrey. And before you say anything about muggleborns and not being caught dead, just remember that I know that hair curling charm and I'm not afraid to use it. Besides, your Slytherin friends aren't there to hear you. So if you're bored, drop me an owl. It's been a slow summer, and I'd love to see a face from school. Especially a face capable of intelligently discussing the finer points of dragonbone v. mandrake root in restorative potions. No one will ever hear from my lips that you visited a muggle house. I await your answer with baited breath.

As Always,
Lily Evans

Author's Note: I don't write trio-generation fic very often, and I never write trio-generation slash. But I've been rereading OotP, and this tiny, fluffy bunny would not leave me alone. Why is this pairing not more popular? Feedback is my drug of choice. As usual, please report any errors or inconsistencies.

Ever since that horrible night the previous week, and the dawn revelations in Dumbledore's office, Harry had been very aware of Neville. Watching his movements, listening to his words, noticing quirks of his personality he had never seen before. Neville, who might so easily have had Harry's life, had it not been for some unfathomable notion of Voldemort's that Harry posed the greater threat.
