Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

A lot has changed since I wrote my first introduction. I'm no longer a computer programmer, and I'm no longer single. I apologize to those who have been waiting a long while for updates, but teaching, raising a child and nurturing a Real Life adult relationship have been taking up all my time since Christmas. None of my stories are abandoned, but they have been neglected. I am starting to commit time to writing again, though, using Dr Wicked's "Write or Die." I thank all my recent reviewers, and I hope to have something for you soon.

I had to keep this from my earlier intro, because it is still true: "I am proud beyond the telling of it that my Wee Hobgoblinn is quite a storyteller in his own right."

For anyone who cares, the chronological list of my fanfic runs thus:

Summer (BtVS) - first fanfic

Shadows and Echoes (fragment abandoned early on writing "Summer.")

Through a Glass Darkly (BtVS) - first ficathon entry

A Father's Love: Nano 06 Novel (BtVS, recently began posting for 08 Summer of Giles - still in beta/ revision and needs an ending)

Graveside - A ficlet for the 2007 Summer of Giles. I just remembered it and decided to post it here.

Two Dads (HP) - First HP fic, written halfway through drafting Lost Boys, as working out backstory.

Lost Boys (HP) - Probably the best fic I've written, ever. I'm really proud of how this turned out. See the postmortem of this on on my journal for more discussion of what I learned writing this one.

In Loco Parentis (HP, WIP)

By the way, "Lost Boys" won some awards in 2008 at live journal's tnl_awards (the new library).

Best Gen Diffindo (Angst) and Judge's Choice
Runner up Gen Episky (Hurt/ Comfort) and Judge's Choice
Best Sepentsortia (Original Character) for David Dursley

Thanks to everyone, there and here, who voted or judged and who left reviews. I'll put up a link on my journal, and I highly recommend checking out all the nominees for this-- there's some really outstanding new HP fic represented.
