Turning Back the Clock - Chapter Six


I have a PC again and life is so much more interesting. There's nothing worse than trying to do things on an iPad when you're used to having multiple tabs open at once. It also means that with any luck I won't cock up the posting, as I did on AO3 last week - Oops. Thankfully, one of my readers pointed out my error so I could put it right, but my sincere apologies to anyone who was confused by my mistake.

This week I booked to go to Leakycon in Dublin at the end of August. It will be good to spend some time with other Potterheads for the start of the school term - definitely better than attempting to get anywhere near to Kings Cross. I really hope British Rail have got a plan for 1 September, because just one of the many Facebook events taking place there at 11 am that day has 24,000 people who have indicated they are going to attend!

If I was British Rail and J K Rowling, I would arrange for the real Hogwarts Express to be on the platform and would sell tickets in advance for a place on the train, the money from which could go to Lumos. It would be a fantastic opportunity to raise huge amounts of money for Jo's charity. Whatever they do I think they are going to be inundated!

Anyway, on to the story. Poor Hermione. She has been told what she's got to do by Professor Dumbledore but she's still not eager to lose her relationship with Severus.

Okay, that's me out of here until next week and the final part of this story.

Have a good week.

Turning Back the Clock - Chapter Five

Morning all,

A very short one today as my poor old PC died yesterday and I'm having to navigate posting with an iPad, which is taking so much longer than usual.

Time for Hermione to reveal the truth to the Headmaster. Will he be able to help her?

See you next week.

Turning Back the Clock - Chapter Four

Good morning everyone,

Here we are again with another week already gone and the world looking a more depressing place by the day. But today, the day after Harry Potter Book Night, the lovely people at Bloomsbury have released pictures of their new 20th anniversary editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - in House colours, in both Hardback and Paperback editions.

The Slytherin editions are quite clearly the best, but sadly, my best friend (a Hufflepuff) disagreed and thought they were the best (as if!) It culminated in a battle of the gifs on FB Messenger, which I won (of course) by dint of posting Severus Snape saying 'Always'. Let's face it, nothing beats that!

To be honest, if I had the money I'd buy all of them!

Anyway, on to the story and this week sees Hermione returning back to the present, full of anticipation of what she's changed. Has it all gone according to plan, or has she made a huge mistake?

If you are enjoying the story I would really appreciate a review or some kudos.

Have a fun week and I'll see you next Friday, assuming Donald Trump hasn't started WW3 by then.

Keep safe and keep the faith.

Turning Back the Clock - Chapter Three

Hi everyone,

It's a quick one this evening as I have a rotten cold and it seems to have affected my ability to type (probably the heavy-duty stuff I've taken to combat it which is making me drowsy).

Anyway, on to chapter three and Hermione is determined to change the future. Will it work? And has she chosen the right thing to change?

I need to go to bed. See you all next week.

Turning Back the Clock - Chapter Two

It's the weekend!

I have to admit I'm quite glad that I get to have a lie-in for a couple of days because I'm feeling a bit run down at the moment. Not good with my birthday coming up - I want to be out and doing things not moping at home with a sore throat and stuffy nose. Maybe the chance to relax will give me some inspiration for writing.

Anyway, it's time for chapter two of Turning Back the Clock, and it's time for Hermione to put her plan into action. But did she actually manage to get where she wanted to go?

I hope you're enjoying the story so far. If so a review or comment or kudos would be gratefully received.
Have a good week.

New Story - Turning Back the Clock

Hi everyone.

So it really was just a short break from posting, although it was incredibly productive. I have several stories coming along swimmingly so hopefully there should be regular posts for most of the year.

I am continuing to upload my stories onto AO3, bit by slow bit. I've pretty much finished the one-shots and low chapter stories, now I need to tackle the lengthier ones. The link on the right-hand side should take you to my page where you can see all the stories I've posted so far although, of course, they all remain available in their original locations as well.

Today I am starting a new story, a romance featuring Severus and Hermione, called Turning Back the Clock. It is being posted on FanFiction.Net and AO3.

It starts during the sixth book, just after Harry and Ginny finally got together.

When Hermione uses the last remaining Time-Turner to try to help Harry, things go terribly wrong. Can she put things right again, or will Severus Snape be the fly in the ointment?

There is a very short Prologue, so I have posted both that and the first Chapter. The links above are for the Prologue.

As always I'd be really interested to hear what you think of it. 

Have a great week.

Captive - Chapter Thirteen

Only a few minutes left until the end of 2016 and the start of what is either going to be a much better (hopefully) or far worse (predicted considering current world events) year. But I'm not here to discuss politics or world events, I'm here to post links to my Harry Potter stories.

Tonight, as I said last week, is the last part of Captive. I really hope you've enjoyed it. if so, a review would be greatly appreciated - or giving it kudos when I get it posted on AO3 (later tonight hopefully).

It's New Year's Eve at Malfoy Manor and Hermione and Lucius are about to tie the knot.


I had a good Christmas haul Harry Potter-wise, with a Marauders mug that shows up when hot drinks are poured into it and a copy of the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated book. I also bought myself a copy of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay.

I will be taking a short break as I've been too busy enjoying Christmas and posting to AO3 to write anything - I have just about posted all my short stories there (I now feel a bit guilty that I've wasted almost 2 weeks of writing time) so I need to do a bit of writing for a while to get back on track. 

Hopefully I won't be away for too long, though.
