Author has written 15 stories for Harry Potter.
My name is OleYelir. I'm an avid Harry Potter fan and it's really the only fandom I write for. I've tried others before but I've never published any. Who knows, I might! I don't really have a specific ship that is an absolute favorite but I mostly write Snape/OFC stories, as he is one of my favorite characters (after Dumbledore, of course), because he seems to be the most complex and misunderstood...I could probably go on and on about the complexity and what not but it's still pretty early for me and I haven't had enough caffeine yet.
AN UPDATE ON THE STORY LIKE THE FLOWER
I just wanted to let my readers know, should they be out there, that this story is on semi-permanent hiatus. I know I have a lot of unfinished stories out there, and for that I'm sorry. I've never really been able to finish what I've started which is due mostly to the fact that I have Borderline Personality Disorder and have never really been able to stick to just one thing. But as of right now, I'm not working on this story at all and there are a few reasons for that.
1. I haven't been in touch with my beta reader in quite some time and that's mostly my fault. I haven't really made an effort.
2. I haven't gotten really any positive reviews for it since the beginning. There have been some and I'm eternally grateful for those of you that have taken the time to review but it's hard to want to finish a story when you know there are people out there that don't like it and make a point to tell you that they don't like it. I should rise above it but I'm sensitive. I will be the first to admit that about myself. For those of you that do like it, I'm glad that you've been able to enjoy it thus far but please allow me to reiterate with point 3.
3. I started writing this story during a very emotional time in my life. My grandmother, who was one of my best friends, who took care of me when my own mother couldn't or wouldn't, who saved me from a very traumatic situation in my life, was diagnosed with stage 4 Breast Cancer. By the time they caught it, it had already spread to her brain and there was little to be done about it. So while I was writing this story, I was watching her waste away before me, and it was painful to watch her die like that. From the initial diagnoses, I only had five months left with her and she wasn't herself due to the brain tumors for most of it. One day, the home hospice people came to her house and told us that she had maybe a few days left and that she needed to be in a facility. So they took her and she fell into a deep sleep and never woke up. She slept for four days until she just gave out and died peacefully in her sleep. I take solace in that. But at the same time, in the story, Bev was going through loss in her life and it just became a burden for me to write about, especially the parts that involved her grandmother. It's been nearly a year since my grandma died and I'm still not over it. I don't know that I'll ever be over it. But maybe in the future, I'll be able to come back and use my experiences to shape this story. Now is just not the time and I hope you all can understand that.
If you wish to follow me on Twitter, you may do so. My twitter is the same as my penname, OleYelir. I also have a livejournal account (Kariosis) that I sometimes still use to respond to negative reviews that are left anonymously since I can't respond in a PM.
Again, I'm sorry.
