Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.

You can call me Lian. I read/write primarily HP fan fic. Recently started writing again after a number of years, though I'm juggling enough in my life that I find time in fits and starts. I read quite a bit, and am particularly interested in the (platonic) relationship between Harry and Snape. In addition to Harry Potter, I also enjoy fandom for Tamora Pierce's Tortall, Megan Whalen Turner's Attolia, most Georgette Heyer, and Dorthy Sayers' Lord Peter. (Harriet/Peter has now replaced all HP pairings as my OTP.)

If you're looking for my work/more polished versions of my work, I'm archived at MuggleNet Fan Fiction, fiction alley, and The Petulant Poetess under the name HermioneDancr. I'm also archived on OWL (Tauri) under the name Astarael.

Hermione Granger and the Serpent's Renaissance by epsi10n reviews
They didn't question why Hermione Granger was able to cast every spell in the first class, or why she seemed to know Hogwarts: A History by heart. They never really noticed her resourcefulness, determination or cunning. A Gryffindor meant for Ravenclaw, they called her- and yet...Who would've thought that once upon a time, her name was Salazar?

The Prince and the Professor by the-supreme-mugwump reviews
When he looked back on it later, Severus realized how much worse his life could have gone. Those few short months in 6th year were much more important than he could have ever known at the time. It was hard to have perspective on something like that at 16; constantly dodging hexes and being ignored by Lily Evans. The Professor had known, though. That's why he'd come. (AU, SS/LE)
