Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter, Big Bang Theory, Doctor Strange, and Marvel.

Hello!

If you can’t tell from my work, I like Harry Potter, Marvel, The Big Bang Theory, and asking questions of plot holes/flaws/alternatives.

My chapters tend to be quite short, with an irregular upload rate, and the reason for this is twofold. 1)Before becoming a fanfic writer, I did Neil Gaiman’s Masterclass. In one lesson, he talks about conciseness – saying what needs to be said, and what you want to say, in as few words as possible. 2) When I write, I have what I think of as an “Inspiration Pipeline”. When the inspiration flows, I can write, but when it shuts off, I can’t – and I have no control of when it does so, or for which story the pipe is flowing.

Some of my stories are connected, in what I have come to think of as a universe called the Marvel Literary Wizarding World. These are:

Professor Strange

Harry Potter & The Dark Dimension

The Serpent Becomes A Lion

A Shoulder To Cry On

A Shoulder To Cry On and The Serpent Becomes A Lion are spin-offs from Professor Strange. To get the context for them, I’d suggest you read Professor Strange first.

My other stories are:

Pointing Out The Obvious - A collection of one-shots, each unconnected to anything else, save that they revolve around a Harry who uses his brain a bit more.

The Night Is Dark And Full Of Terrors – A dark story, set in an AU where Voldemort was stealthy when he went to Godric’s Hollow, and the ramifications of that.

The Incarceration Deviation – My one Big Bang Theory story, which I haven’t touched since uploading what little there is, because I have no idea how to proceed with it. It asks “What if Sheldon did rat Leonard out to the authorities in the incident with the rocket fuel?”

Things I have ideas for, but are as yet unwritten beyond the concept/ working title/first couple of hundred words:

The Subtle Science and Exact Art – A Snape story, where he’s still presenting a front of being an unpleasant person, but not when it comes to teaching.

“Game Night” – a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine story in which Sisko learns of the 21st Century Earth entertainment “Board Game Night”, and decides to have one.

“Walk on the Wesen Side” – a Grimm story, post-season 6, in which a family with adopted Wesen kids moves in next door to Munro and Rosalee – but the kids don’t know about Wesen. Hilarity/adorableness ensues.

A story about Dudley Dursley – to say anything about this would be spoilers.

Inspired by an r/hpfanfiction prompt post, a story in which Petunia is a fantasy writer, and Vernon a stage magician, thus fully accepting of Harry.

A Harry Potter/Discworld crossover, in which Hogwarts becomes home to a clan of Nac Mac Feegles.

Finally, a note about reviews.

I like them – when they’re positive, obviously. Of course I do, all authors do. What we like especially, though, is reviews that provide actual feedback. A review that says “Good chapter”, though welcome, falls in significance in the face of a review where the reviewer actually says what they found good. As such, if you read something of mine, and you like it: Please leave a review, and say what you liked!

A Most Unusual Dursley Family reviews
A take on the canon in which the Dursleys, rather than obsessed with being normal, are quite the opposite...
