Author has written 33 stories for Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Merlin, Firefly, Misc. Books, and Lord of the Rings.

Hey, all. You are entirely welcome to poke around, but please know that, while I may (very) occasionally post, I don't intend to be reading at all. I'm sorry.

For the curious, the Words True and Kind series runs as follows:

Words True and Kind

Badgering Arthur

Appalling Arthur

Fics to fill the gaps are very nearly written and might conceivably see daylight at some point.

Sincerely,

S. F. Bandersnatch
