Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter.

Name: PJ

Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff

Ship(s) and fic preferences: I recently dove headlong into the HMS Blackinnon, and I am really loving the later marauders era. I like writing fairly light-toned fic even if the subjects being dealt with are fairly intense. I am an unrepentant pun enthusiast and it creeps into my fic sometimes.

Non-HP related interests: I’m very into the works of William Shakespeare. Huge Shakesnerd over here. But no one cares about my Hamlet fanfic so... I also write original fiction that no one cares about! I’ve recently started a job as a writer for a true crime related documentary. It’s a really different sort of writing but I’m enjoying it. A long term goal is getting my left arm covered in flower tattoos.

This account will be where I post my recent Harry Potter fanfic. I rarely post anything that I'm not 100% sure is going to be a complete work. I don't abandon posted fics, so that's something you can count on.

I have an AOOO account in this same username, and I use the email Shakesbirb@gmail.com if anyone would like to reach out for any reason. I started a tumblr with the url HufflepuffMarleneMckinnon, so few free to seek me out there as well.

Brimstone by Rainbow Dust reviews
"McKinnon," he greeted her, his voice sultry and raw and everything she wanted and nothing of the things she had. It wasn't soft, loving and sweet and he didn't look at her with affectionate kind eyes. His gaze was strong, boring into her skin and she was surprised it didn't leave bruises. But someone's gaze couldn't leave marks on the skin, could it?

Easy Love by dileemmaaa reviews
It's sixth year for the Marauders at Hogwarts. And the best way to start a new year is with a hidden kiss in a train compartment. But what will happen when relationships change? Mainly Blackinnon with hints of Jily and Meadowpin. (In-progress)

The One Left Behind by matrixaffiliate reviews
My version of the Sirius Black and Marlene McKinnon story, told through a series of chronological one-shots starting end of 6th year. Everything follows Marauders' era cannon, except that I've moved Marlene's death from before Harry's first birthday to after it. I had a lot of fun working on this, and I hope those that read it enjoy it! Rated T for language and sexual content.

Hunting For Happiness by Rainbow Dust reviews
"Hate is an emotion filled with so much passion, that's why I prefer it over love." The story of Sirius Black and Marlene McKinnon, through what seems to only be lust but could possibly be... love? Or is Marlene just delusional and Sirius just heartless?

A Little Taste by SiriusUntiltheVeryEnd reviews
Bitter enemies, fit them perfectly, but as Sirius's lips dug into her neck, sucking and teasing her, all rationality left her. Sirius told himself time and time again that this time, would be the last and then a few days would go by and here they would be.

Medicine by SiriusUntiltheVeryEnd reviews
Rose wanted to act like she didn't care where he was or how he could have been, for the first time in his entire life, late, but she did care. Rose Weasley cared about Scorpius Malfoy.

A Home with Pads and Duckie
Parenting is a rollercoaster of emotions. Sirius and Marlene have no idea what they're doing but they love Harry, and are really trying. This fic will feature snippits of life after Sirius and his wife Marlene adopt 4 year old Harry. (Takes place after the epilogue of my fic The Dog and the Duckling but can be read as a stand alone.)

Of the Essence reviews
Sirius and James semi-inadvertently invent a new potion. It's consequences to Sirius's personal life are anything but straightforward. (M rating only for Chapters 14&20 for mild smut and *if you squint* 16 for violence, otherwise this fic should be rated T)

Quacks in the Night reviews
Sirius Black and his duck animagus wife Marlene have raised Harry since early childhood. When Harry writes home about detention with Dolores Umbridge, Marlene gets angry. (This takes place 10 years after the epilogue to my Blackinnon canon divergence AU fic, The Dog and the Duckling but it doesn't really require reading TDatD first)

The Dog and the Duckling reviews
Sirius is assigned to mentor Marlene Mckinnon when she joins The Order of the Phoenix. His perceptions of Hufflepuff house are drastically changed, and so is his life. (My take on Marlene is different than the popular fanon. Here she is younger than the Marauders, a Hufflepuff, and a WOC. This fic will diverge from canon in July of 1981.)

Friends with Scars reviews
Marlene and Sirius are close friends and growing closer by the minute. Sirius is a little bit of an emotional train wreck. Marlene makes it a priority to make sure he knows she cares about him and that he isn't alone. H/C with Mutual Pining while in a FWB arrangement. Set in 1980. Fairly Smutty.
