Author has written 20 stories for Harry Potter.

I'm an alleged grownup in the US with just enough free time to dabble a little in unexplored corners of JKR's world, and I have the most fun writing Lupin, Tonks, and the Marauders. I generally think of myself as a canon-compliant fic writer, but many of the stories posted here are Lupin/Tonks AU...written as a form of post-DH therapy. (It helps!)

You can find additional canon-compliant Harry Potter fic on my LiveJournal, and some of it is also at PhoenixSong.net -- look for shimotsuki at either site.

WIP status: I am working on Kaleidoscope (II): Mirrors. First drafts of most of the chapters are posted at my LiveJournal; look for the "Kaleidoscope" link in the sidebar. When I've finished the whole first draft, I will do an edit and start posting the story here. I'm guessing that will happen in spring or summer of 2014. (In the meantime, there may be the occasional post-war AU one-shot.)
