Author has written 2 stories for Stargate: Atlantis, and CSI.

Hi,

My name is Andrea and I live in Queensland, Australia. I'm not a spring chicken anymore in my age, but I don't need a walking stick or hearing aid just yet, and can still quite happily drool over my most favourite hunky young stars, and wish I was 20 years younger sigh. I found this site through a fantastic Supernatural site that I joined, and haven't looked back since. I've been reading heaps of great stories from all my favourite shows, and just can't get enough. Stargate Atlantis, CSI, Supernatural, Numb3rs, NCIS, Dukes of Hazard, X Men, Starsky and Hutch, Hogan's Heroes, Combat, Stargate SG1, Smallville, Thunderbirds...the list goes on and on, as I continually find somewhere else that I absolutely MUST read a story from.

Well, I've finally taken the plunge, and have started writing my own story after happily reading other's for months. It appears to be fairly well received so far, so my fingers are crossed that this state continues. I'm finally also starting to have a few ideas kick around in my head...I guess that must be the plot bunnies playing soccer or something, lol...so it's possible I may write something else after this current story is finished.

I've really been enjoying reading some of the fantastic stories that have been posted on this site, and I've been busy telling other people about the site in general, up to and including the telephone company saleslady who rang me the other day, lol. She said she'd check it out, so hopefully I'm contributing to the increase of readers/users/authors here, in a small way.

Well, time I got back to writing the next chapter, catch ya round the ridges!

Enough Is Enough by loverofeevee reviews
This story will be M rated. There is a bit of slash, not detailed. Some bad language. A bit of gore. A heaping of demented house elves and a crazy powerful Harry. The Goblins have decided enough is enough and help Harry overcome Dumbledore's manipulations. This is going to be fun.

This is a series of oneshots that involve Harry believing that everyone in the 'magical' world is insane. Starts with Dumbledore, Snape, and McGonagall getting Harry, instead of Hagrid, and goes in random order from there. Involves much sarcasm from Harry. Feel free to adopt.

Nothing to Lose by Writing Warriors reviews
This story, as a few are in the world of Harry Potter fanfiction, stems from one of those many ideas of Rorschachs Blot, entitled "Nothing to Lose." One of the areas this story will explore is the possible impact on Harry Potter and friends of the isolation that our dear old friend, Albus Dumbledore, always fed to him: this isolation will make up its own reality.
