I'm a 68 year old, retired dental hygienist, wife, Mom, Mom-mom, great grandmom, Harry Potter fan. I live in Maryland, USA.

I love reading fanfiction, although I am a bit of a spelling / grammar / punctuation / Canon nazi. I do, however, review EVERY chapter that I read. You have been warned! HE!HE!HE!

I hope you will enjoy my little (?) stories and one shots. I'm a stinker when it comes to cliffhangers, but that's half the fun of reading, isn't it?

My credo:

Live your life such,

that when your feet hit the floor in the morning,

Satan shudders and says:

"Aw, S#!T! She's awake."

Having Both Is A Blessing by Holly Ilex

Rated: MA18+ • 30 Reviews starstarstarstarstar



The prologue and first two chapters of this story intertwine with the last two chapters and epilogue, (covering, roughly, the last two weeks of term), of my sixth year story ‘What Goes Around…Comes Around…Lost And Found…Love’.  If you haven’t read it, you’d better go through that one, or none of this story will make any sense.

This little passage always bothered me, so I went back and put in a little scene which I think adds to the whole post- battle scenerio.

Half Blood Prince Limericks by Holly Ilex

Rated: R15+ • 3 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star
Summary: After HBP came out, I kept getting little bits and pieces of the story stuck in my brain and the only way to get them out was to get them down on paper ( on the computer ) as limericks. I can't write poetry to save my soul, but limericks just seem to fall out of my brain with frightening regularilty.  So, here's my ramblings about HBP.
