What a day to join.
I love the Harry Potter universe and thank JKR for creating it, which if you think about it means she's a Goddess.
I usually ship Harry, Hermione and Daphne Greengrass or any combination thereof. Sometimes others, most especially Luna Lovegood. If it's Hermione and Ron or Harry and Ginny then watch out Weasley lovers.
I hope you enjoy what I put up and let me know.

I really must say I am astounded at how well my writing has been accepted and the enjoyment of my stories people seem to have with them. I sincerely thank you all who have read and enjoyed them as well as reviewed them.
As for reviews I will not put any requests or reminders in my stories for them. This right here is the only place I will do so. If you don't want to, fine, if you do, great. I do appreciate the ones I get.
As for my stories I am rather surprised at how many requests for continuations of my one shots I've gotten. I really only thought of them as such but I have decided I can do more either as additional one shots or as chapters, I haven't decided which.
Touch the Stars - I have a general idea but no real outline as yet. Chap 2 is up! Please don't hold your breath for the next one.
Flirty - The next day. Hermione and Daphne from Daphne's POV. Working on but very slow. Possible future chapters.
Pranks - Sorry. Truly a one shot. It was written around the premise of the prank gone wrong. Not really anything I can add.
Revelations - I have a general idea but no real outline as yet.
Be advised, I'm a lousy writer, as in sitting down and typing anything out so please don't expect anything soon, especially as I'm trying to work on House as well and as I noted in the A/N in the first chapter of that story I don't update to any schedule.
I am also working on other stories, in various stages of completion (I don't know. Is that ADHD?) and hope to get them out as well. Some of them are complete in my head and I just have to type them while others went so far off the rails I honestly don't know what to do with them. Some of the more likely ones to be finished:
Be Careful What You Wish For - Harry and Daphne in an unusual bond story.
Voldemort! Demons! Goddesses! and...Luna Lovegood!? Uh Oh! - Read the title again.
The Power He Knows Not - What if Morgana was real and not really dead? What if muggles terrified her? COMPLETE!
Till Death... - Daphne Greengrass is a thief. Harry Potter is her target. Bad Ron. Suffering Hermione. Draco kind of caught in the middle.
No working title yet - OC from my original stories from years past of a whole different kind of sorcery and her introduction to Hogwarts.
No working title yet - Battle of Hogwarts and Hermione in a different kind of time travel story.
As I said I'm slow so please be patient. I love writing and get great satisfaction from hearing how people enjoy reading my stories.

Aagghh! Flames! Flames! Call the fire department! Get a fire extinguisher!
No, wait. I'll just delete them. Yeah! That'll work!
NO! I'm better than that. I'll accept their criticisms and just tell myself...
Okay, that was way over the top even for me. What that was all about was just over 24 hours ago I dropped chapter five of HOUSE into the chaotic world of FFN for all of those people who have been waiting for it. (If you look above you will see that I told you I was SLOW!) And boy did they let me know what they thought. Twenty reviews in 24 hours and they either loved it or they hated it, except for one that was sort of 'Meh, not your best so I'll wait to see what you come up with next.' Thanks to all you lovers for your wonderful words and I'd like to try to answer some of the haters.
Digital photography: From the photoreceptors through the solid state electronics to the memory, from the memory through the solid state electronics to the download into a computer or other such device through more solid state electronics to the printer the mind magics that make things unseeable through the wards are stripped away. And wards that make you not see something are mind magics, they don't make things invisible they make your mind not able to see the warded object. As for the fidelius, Harry knows the secret but he's never shown the picture to Narcissa so we don't know if it can be seen through or not.
To much technology: It's what muggles DO! Cooling charm - refrigerator. Heating charm - stove. Flying charm - jet engine. And on and on. It doesn't mean magic is less than technology it just means muggles can do a lot of things magic can. There are still a lot of things muggles can't do. Transfigure a desk into a pig in front of physicist and watch him crap his pants. But you have to admit the magical world has shown a lot of signs of stagnation and the muggle world doesn't.
Magical travel: Who missed the part where I pointed that out?
Mind Magics: Uh, oops?
Statute of Secrecy: Of course there's a treaty with the Muggle government! The Statute might have been strictly magical but do you think the Crown is going to let thousands, and especially a really big bunch of Lords, of tax paying people just vanish without one? And it's called the MINISTRY for a reason! You know, like that thing Parliament makes all of those laws and rules for so the PRIME Minister can try to keep things from going to hell with all that beuracratic stuff? And besides: it's my AU and I say so, so there.
WAR: I never said it would be easy for either side but I'd still put my money on the muggles. Let's just let Harry work and not find out, OK?
Werewolves: OK you got a point. In canon (which this isn't) they fought for Voldy. But what choice did they have? The laws were against them, public opinion was against them, and when Remus tried to get them to stay neutral he really had nothing to offer them. Voldy at least promised hope of a better life. Harry's trying to fix that. More to come.
Well, that's enough ranting and raving (so just quit it already!). Till next time and keep those reviews coming.

Here it is, two years since I joined and I'm about to upload my tenth story. Who'd have thought. It's just a little thing where the good guys lose but Harry gets to tell the population what he really thinks. I hope you enjoy it.
I'm still working on HOUSE and I almost had the next chapter finished when I reviewed my outline and realized I'd dug myself into a huge plot hole that would have major consequences in a chapter further down the road. I'm rewriting now but I also have to rethink a lot of stuff in between the two chapters and since I'm slow anyway it's taking time. I am truly sorry.
Speaking of HOUSE, to those reviewers who have said for whatever reason that it has become boring, unrealistic or whatever reason and you will no longer be reading it, I am truly sorry you feel that way. However, I wish you happiness in any other story you may read.
I was recently reminded that my humor is not always taken in that way by some people when I was slapped down hard, rightly I will admit, by someone who did not appreciate my snarkiness. Again, I apologize to them and should I offend anyone in such a way please inform me. Thank you.
Besides HOUSE I am working on several of my other previous one shots and I hope you find their continuing chapters as well done and story worthy as the first ones.
As always, reviews are always welcome and appreciated and I read them all. Thank you for them.
TA for now. ER!

Hi! Just uploaded another story and wanted to point out it's one of those listed above, The Power He Knows Not. Just goes to show that I do work on those but as many of my followers have found out, none of them are to a schedule and my flighty little muse makes a mockery of any of my attempts to sit down and write. I try to work on House because I know so many people are waiting but I'm just lousy at doing it. I've got so many ideas and can't get them down and it's frustrating. But I'm not giving up on them. It just might take a while.
In a sort of related but totally opposite topic, on April 15 I got a late birthday and waaaay early Christmas present: CAPTAIN COMPASS favorited me! He is one of my giants on FFN! His "Honestly Harry..." series is one of the best on this site in my opinion and if you haven't read them you're really missing out. Admittedly they're a tiny bit fluffy but if you like adventure , soul bonds, derring do, bravery, Godzilla and more, check out his profile. That will tell you what order they're in.
The opposite is, unlike me he continues to crank out top notch wonderful stories quickly. His muse is centered, practical, willing to work, and on topic all the time! To say I'm jealous doesn't begin to describe it.
I only want to say, Thank you Captain! To know that you think I'm worthy enough to put on your favorites list made my entire year!
Really, he's a great writer. Read his stories.
All rambling aside, thanks for your time and especially your reviews. I don't answer many of them but I read them all and appreciate them all, even the ones that tell me in no uncertain words why they're not going to read any more of my stuff, or why they think what I'm writing is stupid. Might want to stick around and find out why I wrote it that way though. Harry might have a plan.

I'm still here, still working on House (though you couldn't tell by the update rate) but my muse has been bouncing around quite a bit and hasn't been near it in almost two months. Been working on a few of my older ones and putting out a couple of newer ones which have gotten some good reviews. Just because it says Complete, don't believe it. Real life has gotten in the way a bit as well but I will continue. Of course, if I stopped reading and kept writing I'd get more done. (But they're such good stories!)
I'd just like to know how some people can write and publish 5 - 10 thousand words a week! My proofreading takes longer than that! (TomHRichardson, you're one of them! Good story by the way.)
Well, as usual, reviews are very welcome and I hope you continue them to let me know what you do and don't like, even if it's just "I like it. Write more. Now."
