Author has written 126 stories for Harry Potter.
I am Katy, aka Bad Mum,.
My fanfiction career (if you can call it such a thing) began with a desire to know how the Weasleys - specifically George - found out about Fred's death. That lead to my first fic "Bill's story" and things sort of spiralled from there. The Weasleys will always be my first love, but I have branched out a bit in who I write about these days - some of the time, at least.
My stories are canon- and epilogue-compliant, but follow the Sober or Sensible Universe for things after the end of the seventh book. So "my" post-DH pairings and children do not match JKR's "official" version in many cases. I also have an annoying habit of requiring my fics to agree with each other. This limits what I am able to write occasionally, and I am beginning to get over it...
Usually you can also find me at
A lovely little place for grownup fans of Harry Potter fanfiction to come together and enjoy each others' company, engage in writing challenges and discuss our favorite fanfiction, all in a more grownup manner.
I subscribe to the creed of the original (sadly defunct) Reviews Lounge:
I, Bad Mum, do solemnly swear to review all the stories I read,
I can also be found now and again at Harry_Potter_Fanfiction_Challenges, an excellent place to go for ideas and challenges (I, Bad Mum, have challenged myself).
