Author has written 10 stories for Harry Potter.

Hi! I'm probably drinking too much coffee or tea at any given moment, and diving back into reading and writing fanfiction as a fun and creative outlet amidst all the stress of the world right now.

I'm also back on tumblr for the first time in eons. Not much content there bc it's a new account, but feel free to pop in and say hello if you so feel inclined (username same as here)
