Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter, and Wheel of Time.
I'm a late-20's guy who only recently started dabbling in writing. My professional-grade skills lie in fields diametrically opposed to creative writing, so I can't promise anything fancy in terms of storytelling. But I hope I can become good enough to some day write my "some day" story.
I got sucked into Harry Potter fan-fiction in late 2010 by LessWrong's Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, which I believe I found while browsing Goodreads. I've since branched out a little, but the quality of some of these Harry Potter stories are astounding. So the Potterverse is where the majority of my stuff will live here. Although, I should mention that I recently discovered a weakness for self-insert fics, so I can't promise to stay away from that.
And it's a good thing I didn't promise to stay away, or I would have already broken it.
Harry Silvertongue - My first 'real' novel-length fanfiction. AU, Slytherin!Harry. Starts before Harry receives his letter and follows him through his Hogwarts years.
Betrayal - a short story that explores how damaging it could have been if Hermione accidentally abandoned Harry along with Ron during the Horcrux hunt, and got caught. Much darker than my other stuff. Written for the DLP February 2013 Apocalyptic/Dystopian fiction contest, and it won!
Note that the title was supposed to be a working title (it fits the first couple chapters), but I never got around to coming up with a better one. Sorry about that.
A Curse of Truth - novel-length self-insert. First-person, present tense story where the PoV character is the insert. I hope you give it a chance, I think it gets better as the story goes on since it's my first published novel-length fic. I think it's quite funny -- yes, I'm lame enough to laugh at my own stuff -- and I hope you do too. The reviews for this story are extremely positive, so don't be afraid of the self-insert-ness!
A few select story quotes:
"I wish there were more stories about me in your head like that, though surely you realize as an enchanted article of clothing I am neither male nor female?" — Sorting Hat, A Curse of Truth, Ch. 1
"It seems odd to worry about the sanity of an ancient, semi-sentient Hat, Mr. Lerner, yet I must confess I was quite concerned there for a few minutes." — Professor Dumbledore, A Curse of Truth, Ch. 2
"I agree, it's completely snogging ridiculous if you ask me." — William, A Curse of Truth, Ch. 3
"You have to hand it to (Hagrid), he knows how to lay on the guilt trip. He also knows how to accidentally attempt to drive people into the floor like a railroad spike. I hope my shoulder is okay." — William, A Curse of Truth, Ch. 7
"I've learned that the tilt of [Luna's] head is a more accurate indicator of her tone than her actual voice, and so far this particular angle has consistently corresponded to mild curiosity and surprise. Well, either that or wanton lust, but I may have misunderstood that particular comment." — William, A Curse of Truth, Ch. 14
"Judging by the number of times that you've tried to kill me with your eyes, I think I'm a lot funnier than you think I am." — William, A Curse of Truth, Ch. 16
Made myself some new vintage-style covers, of which I am quite proud (unlike the awful covers that were there before).
A Kiss of Clichéd Proportions - oneshot parody of harem fics. A lot more sarcastic than the humor in A Curse of Truth.
Through Butterbeer-Colored Glasses - oneshot response to a challenge. It's only 1600 words or so, so read it! In fact I think it works best if you don't know much about it before you read (and if you ignore the gaping plothole).
On the back burner:
A Summoning Gone Awry - HP/WoT/possibly other crossovers. I wrote this while I was writing ACoT, and it's meant to be silly. I'm placing it in the back burner section for now but I'm not sure if I'll return to it.
Untitled HP/Bleach Crossover. Don't hate. This was my first attempt at HP fanfiction and I got about 25k words in before I succumbed to my kink for self-inserts. I still like the idea, but it might be a while before I get to it.
Untitled Fire Emblem Self-Insert - Yeah, the bug struck again. My apologies. I'm not far into this one at all, but it's another novel-length fic.
Very, Very Mad World - dark, post-5th year AU, where the Dept. of Mysteries ambush went quite badly. Got a couple thousand words in, got too depressed, so I went back to work on A Curse of Truth. Except for the HP/Bleach crossover my other fics have very heavy comedy elements, so this is not surprising.
Indefinite hiatus/being cannibalized:
Unkindness of Ravens - Harry/Multi story that would almost certainly be reported here. I wrote 8k words of it before I realized I had no idea where I was going with it -- I just liked the title. Elements of this have filtered in to one of my other fics, but I don't want to ruin it by saying which one.
Future Harry Merge - The oft-abused future Harry's soul merges with young Harry. This has been almost completely cannibalized by A Curse of Truth (both of which involve using future knowledge to go AU), so it will most likely never see the light of day.
Untitled SW:KotOR self-insert - My first fanfiction ever. I killed it. I killed it with fire.
Lastly, I'm going to set up a website for myself sooner or later so I can share my stuff. Not just my stories, but references for them and some of my noveling tools. If any of you are Linux users, I've got a few bash scripts that take my files written in RTF and produce the HTML that I upload here (complete with those fancy horizontal lines for scene breaks!) and that I can convert to EPUB format. I figure once I get the chance I'll get that set up and produce nice EPUB and MOBI editions for those of you who are interested. If you want to see the scripts before I get the site set up, send me a message and I'll forward them on with instructions.
