Welcome to RedSioda's Lair

Hello there. :) This journal archives my Harry Potter fanfiction stories. JK Rowling is a generous writer to let us play with her characters and wander into the world she created. Everything is hers, and the rest is mine. ;)

While my mastery of English has quite improved in the last months (and you have to trust me on this), there are still stories that are not beta edited. They are indicated as such. Please feel free to look around and to comment if you wish, and to friend this journal if you find something you like. 

A couple of stories are locked for friends only because they deal with themes not suitable for young readers. If you want to access them, please tell me and I'll friend you back. However, I do not interact from this journal but for communities I participate in.

I like to explore the themes of the Potterverse revolving around friendship, love, change, loss, and family. Stories are mostly rated from G to R, and tend to (hopefully) follow book canon.

There are three ways to explore this fic journal. The links on the left column will help you to go through the stories by alphabetical order, by category or by character (main or secondary).

Last update - July 17, 2011

Egads, it's been a while since I've wrote or posted something here. I hope I tracked back all the comments made in the last year or so. I've been away with health issues that kept me away from the computer for a long time.

I'm better now and slowly coming back to writing. Thank you for reading. :-)

The Onyx Runes (G, a fic for romanesca08)

Now that stellar mod

star54kar has posted the reveals of the weasley_fest exchange, I can claim the maternity of the Bill genfic I wrote for romanesca08 - The Onyx Runes. Here is a slightly modified version of what I sent to the community. I had left in a couple of little awkward things.

I was also happy to receive a lovely epilogue-era fic from solstice_muse, in  which Arthur Weasley attempts to find the most representative picture of his family. The title is Bookends, and you can read it here. :)

The Onyx Runes

Disclaimer: Ah, if I were JKR. But I’m not.

I sincerely hope you will enjoy this interpretation of your prompt as well as this look into Bill’s character. My beta-reader queenb23more deserves cookies and flowers – lots of them. Thank you, dearest. <3 All remaining mistakes are mine. Sahbee translates into my friend.

Ten Seductions - 2. The Thirsty Woman (Flavia Antonescu)

Oh well. I said I was writing this fast, and it seems I am. Here is a second seduction, rather different in tone than the first one. It is difficult to write about Charlie without creating characters around him. Thanks again toqueenb23more for her beta reading. All remaining mistakes are mine. Afinata and horinca are liquors served in Romania.

Title: The Thirsty Woman
Rating: R, for sensual themes
Characters: Charlie, OCs
Word count: 3,062
Summary: The third week, six young men dressed in white tees streaked with black, thick grey trousers, and heavy boots came in and sat themselves in the corner, and her uncle grabbed on her apron to pull her in the kitchen.

‘Do you hear me, Flavia?’ roared her uncle, his moustache trembling. ‘No flirting!’

Wine Tasting (R)

I'm working on a little string of short fics that deal with desire and seduction with a Weasley, and I have no idea how this is going to turn into but, eh, I like to try stuff like that. Here is the first Weasley to be seduced...or is he the seducing one?

Wine Tasting

Rating: R, for sensual themes.
Characters: Fleur, Bill
Word count: 2 595
Warning: This is seriously fluffy romance.

queenb23more sacrified again a bit of her sanity by keeping my punctuation in line. Thank you. <3

Poetic Dragon

Familiar Rooms (PG-13)

Here is a story that has been in the works for a long time.

For dragon_animagus , I hope you will enjoy it, dearest. The last part of this story is what I should have written instead of what I did for 'Ready'.
The beta reading was done by dear queenb23more.

Familiar Rooms
Characters: Charlie (MC), Bill (MC), Ginny (SC)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: It was a deceptively normal room in a quirky house, complete with an imaginary and hotly debated frontier that dug a trench at the heart of it.

They lived in that room, and the room lived within them.

Poetic Dragon

Sepia (R, Hr/R)

I can't believe I forgot to post this here. I fixed the wonky formatting, a couple of things that nagged me and a few typos. All remaining mistakes are mine.

exartemarte and pili204 tremendously helped me  on making this story happen, and they deserve all my thanks. dragon_animagus and queenb23more are the reasons why I'm still sane after writing this one, and I owe them.
Was first published on Checkmated on January 15th, 2008.

Title: Sepia
Rating: R
Characters: Hermione, Ron, Harry, Ginny, Rose, Hugo
Genre: drama

Written for the Ron/Hermione Colorful Winter Quote!Fic Challenge

"You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings." -- Pearl S. Buck (color: sepia)

There was a picture of Harry, Ron and herself on page four of The Daily Prophet. It had been only a few years since Harry defeated Voldemort, and the photograph seemed prematurely faded.

It had the distinctive colour of memories.
