An Empty SpaceIt's very lonely here, Luna thinks as she stares out of the window, upon the grassy, lively hills beyond it. Her empty hands rest on the table set just out of reach of the bed, the cold morning air tickling her skin under her thin nightgown. She breathes in, just another breath in a huge empty space, but still stealing away far too much air from the room, she thinks. She wills herself to stand, to dress, but she cannot, the press of a lacking space beside her too much for her to fight against.An Empty Space1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
She watches as the sun begins it's slow, tedious journey against the brightness that is the moon and the darkness that accompanies it. The birds wake and flutter about, wavering in the way a heart does when it most needs to be steady. They are so full of life, she thinks, so full of hopes and beginnings that she cannot begin to grasp. They reek of things that she does not know and cannot ever have, of her wishes, sitting heavily in the vacant air beside her, crushing her breath out of her chest.

I first met Harry Potter in 1999. I was 11, the same age Harry was when he received his letter to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I never received mine, but I got so much more than just a mere letter. On Christmas Eve of that year, I received the first three books as a Christmas gift from my step-grandma. I had never heard of this series before, but thanked her because she knew I loved to read. Little did she (or I) know how much that one choice would change my life forever, would turn out to be more than just a simple gift.
But it didn't start that way. I began reading Sorcerer's Stone

"Yea, come on James, give her back the time turner," Said Al, her other triplet. James, Al, and Lily were the Potter Triplets, known to cause as much mischief as the Marauders and their dad, Aunt Hermione, and Uncle Ron. They were in the corridor, after hours, and James had spotted the time turner around his sisters neck.
"No, come on Lily! We could do so much mischief with this and never get caught, come on!" James pleaded.
"No James, time turners can be dangerous give it back to me." She said holding her hand out, her brother sighing, tossed it to her, but Lily being the uncoordinated girl she was, couldn't catch it and the time turner fell to the ground with a sickening crack.

"I can't believe I took that bet," Albus muttered under his breath as he approached the Great Hall. He just had to bet that Andy wouldn't have the courage to ask Molly out until next Hogsmeade weekend. He had a good mind to go beat some sense into his cousin's boyfriend it had taken him four years to get the courage to ask her, so couldn't he wait two more months?
James was beside him, snickering. "Time for the show, little brother."
Albus sighed, but tried to look at the bright side. The Potters and Weasleys were kind of known for doing ridiculous things. Roxanne was always creating trouble and Fred had only just left.

"The map says that Professor Merryplatt is in the room right across from this wall. We have to be quiet."

In a Foggy GraveyardThe heavy silence of the graveyard was broken by a sharp snap. Out of the mist strode a tall, lanky boy in his mid-teens. A streak of his black hair had been dyed a deep green and lay next to a streak dyed silver. From under long ebony lashes glinted eyes like cold jade. He was dressed all in black with a steel gray tie, accompanied by a scarf the same green as his hair. A silver snake in the form of an S shone at the end of the scarf. Albus Severus Potter surveyed his surroundings with mild disdain, flipped the end of the scarf over one shoulder, and ambled down the tiny gravel path into the cemetery.In a Foggy Graveyard1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

Red was always the first color he saw when they were together. He absolutely hated how everyone thought they were the cutest couple. They made him want to blow chunks.

So he decided he would have to stop it.
And that itself had a lot to do with the color red. The red that was gushing out of Marshall's nose after Scorpius "overheard" him talking about how great Rose's tongue was. Sick.

As beautiful as the untouched snow in the courtyard,
And just as cold and fun to trample.

Blood Status: Pureblood
Wand: Hazelwood and Unicorn Hair, nine and a quarter inches, somewhat pliant.
Patronus: Merlin Falcon
Animagus: Melanistic Ocelot
Physical Appearance: Albus is a spitting image of his father, with only a few small differences. They have the same messy black hair, though Albus found that growing it long stopped it looking quite so scruffy. He keeps it just long enough to tickle his chin, which it does, with annoying regularity. He and his father also have the same brilliantly green eyes. However, Albus is very thankful that he doesn't share his dad's need for glasses. He's rather thin and wiry and surprisingly strong for his age.
Personality: Albus is rather quiet, a side effect of having an extremely loud older brother. He has absolutely no problem talking at great length about many things, but he'll always w
