About The Author:
Resident of the state of West Virginia. Has a fondness for all things chocolate; also keeps an up-to-date list on what foods should and should not be eaten with sweet-n-sour sauce. Enjoys swimming, reading, chatting with friends (especially the insane ones), writing, organizing and sorting random unimportant crap, babysitting, Law and Order, meeting new people, mathematics, naming trends and name etymology, religious studies (particularly ancient religions), and sleeping. Strongly dislikes writers who unintentionally make high school students as a whole look like imbeciles, names containing unnecessary letters, particularly 'y', 'k', and 'h', names ending in -ayden, -aiden, -aydyn, -aden, -aydin, -aidin, - aidan, etc., and the pedophile biology teacher who only rarely showed up for class. Has an IQ well over 120, despite an apparent inability to use subjects while writing.
Favorite fan fiction outside of FF.net includes the following:
Harry Potter and the Enemy Within by Theowyn, found on The Sugar Quill
As Harry enters his sixth year at Hogwarts, Voldemort's lengthening shadow stretches across the wizarding world and Harry is tormented by the knowledge that he alone can end this reign of terror. Worse, his mysterious mental link to Voldemort is stronger than ever and threatens to overwhelm him. Only Snape can teach him to control the nightmarish visions, but can Harry and Snape learn to trust one another, or will an old grudge that refuses to die destroy the wizarding world's sole hope of defeating the Dark Lord?" This story was written prior to the release of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Not slash.

Blood Magic by GatewayGirl, found on Fiction Alley

A Year Like None Other by aspeninthesunlight, found on Skyehawke
