Greetings, illustrious readers! I am Pica, an unrepentant grown-up geeky fangirl, and ten year fic writing veteran. My stories are mainly set in the Potterverse, and my OTP is Remus/Sirius, though I have written several other slash and het ships as well.
I became a fan of the Harry Potter series in 2001 when I went to the Philosopher's Stone movie to find out what all the hype was about. I became a fanfic writer in 2004 after seeing Prisoner of Azkaban. Before that, I thought Remus and Sirius were just good friends. I started writing Survivor's Guilt the next day, and never looked back. Even though I came to the Potterverse as an adult, the series has had a profound and lasting impact on my life, for which I am grateful.
I believe we internalise messages from the things we read more than we know, especially when we are young. We learn to think of certain ideas as normal, or sexy, or romantic, if we see them framed that way over and over again. In this, fanfic is just as influential as published fiction or other media, and I believe that, as a writer, I have a duty to model healthy ideas about gender, sexuality, and romance, and to write a diverse cast of characters. For this reason, I am currently doing a mass edit of my stories to fix problematic elements, improve representation, and increase accessibility by adding podfics. Check my archive to see whether a story has been edited and podfic'd yet.
I apologise for the content of my unedited stories. Many include problematic tropes which I used out of ignorance. I've learned a lot over the past few years, and hope to learn much more. I will do my best to implement positive changes from here on out.
Feedback is always welcome. Please let me know if problematic elements persist in my edited works, or if you find any typos or canon errors. For the purposes of my stories, "canon" includes only information found in the published works of J.K. Rowling, not in expanded universe sources such as interviews or Pottermore.
Ebooks and podfics may be downloaded from my AO3 archive. A timeline-based breakdown of my stories, as well as some extra goodies, may be found on my webpage. I can also be found on tumblr, twitter, LJ, and DW.
Thank you, one and all, and happy reading!
