Welcome to my fan fiction journal.

What you will find here is Harry Potter fan fiction written by me - primarily stories about Ron, Hermione and their offspring.

Most of the fics and ficlets I have written are here. A selection of the many drabbles I have posted on Checkmated will be added in the fullness of time.

There are no multi-chapter fics and everything posted here is complete. While some of the stories include adult themes, there is nothing that would be described as adults-only material or require a rating higher than PG-13.

If you friend the journal then you will see updates as they occur, but you do not need to be on a friends list to read the stories or to leave comments.

Please feel free to comment on the stories. The reason many of them have no comments is that they were posted and read elsewhere before being archived here.

I hope you enjoy what you find.

While the stories themselves appear in the order in which they were posted, in the index below they are listed in the order in which they happen.


Two for the Price ... A twin gets lucky.
After the War During the chaos of the final battle, Ron and Hermione took time out to snog. So, once the dust had settled, they'd know where they stood. Wouldn't they?
Horny Goat Weed It's only a virus, but Ron's not fighting it and Molly doesn't know where to turn.
TLC In the aftermath of the war, Luna and Parvati are helping to nurse the wounded. Including Neville - when your hands are bandaged, there are so many things you just can't do for yourself. Nursing care can get very personal...
The Fourth Estate The trouble with being a hero is you can't avoid talking to the press. Like the proverbial bad penny, Rita Skeeter pops up again in the days after the final battle. Can she be trusted this time?
Homecoming The Dursleys finally get back to Privet Drive and now everything will normal again ... won't it?
Going Back Returning to Hogwarts after the defeat of Voldemort, Hermione and Ginny share a compartment on the Hogwarts Express. Intruders are repelled and confidences shared.
Harpy An idea for a wedding present (for a couple who aren't even engaged yet ...) brings Luna Lovegood into contact with two old friends.
Sleepover Hermione wakes up in unfamiliar surroundings ...
Growing Up The war is over. Our heroes are pairing off and getting on with their lives. Except, of course, that for Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger nothing could ever be quite that simple …
Rules of Engagement Ron has to ask Hermione's father for her hand in marriage. Which is fine except that, unfortunately, Mr Granger thinks his daughter could do a lot better than a wizard who helps out in a joke shop ...
All in the Jeans Ron wouldn't feel awkward around his prospective mother-in-law ... would he?
House Sitting Ron and Hermione look after her parents' home while they are away. A tale of togetherness and Muggle technology ...
Thoughts at a Wedding Relaxing after a beautiful ceremony, the Hogwarts Herbology Professor reflects on a couple who took a long time to work out that they belonged together.
All the Trimmings Boxing day at the Burrow: Hermione nips into the kitchen to help and has an unexpected conversation with Molly.
Bushiness A disagreement about hair ...
Girl Child ‘You can see it – look! A tiny little hand, or foot or something, stretching your tummy like a balloon. Hermione, that is just the most incredible thing I have ever seen.’
Yellow. With Red Bits. House spiders are black ...
Paying We know he wouldn't. Probably. But what if…
A Family Christmas It's the day before Christmas Eve, and Ron and Hermione are wrapping presents for their rapidly growing offspring. Mention of Krum, Santa Claus and red fishnets…
Trust Me (Luna/Rolf) The young naturalist knows his stuff, but he's not a natural communicator. Perhaps he needs taking in hand.
Knowing the Signs Two years after the epilogue, Hugo's about to go to Hogwarts and Rose is growing up. A Ron and Hermione family moment.
Empty Nest Hugo has gone to Hogwarts and Ron wanders disconsolately around a home without children. And there's something Hermione isn't telling him. A sequel to Knowing the Signs.
Did you never think to mention... On her parents' wedding anniversary, eleven-year-old Lily Potter is asking questions. And Harry has a little secret…
Parents Who does a girl go to when her parents are just plain embarrassing?
Rusticating Hugo A Hogwarts tale: Hugo is in trouble, and his parents have been sent for…
Needing to Know Rose takes her courage in both hands ...
Coming of Age 'Mum, remember when we had that really embarrassing talk about sex and stuff?' A mother-daughter relationship tale about Rose and Hermione.
Seven Books There was a discussion in the Checkmated forums about the "missing" girls in Hermione's dormitory. The majority opinion seemed to be that they don't exist. Now the girls would like to have their say...
