Author has written 29 stories for Harry Potter.

Hello!

While I can occasionally go outside my ship to read, I only write Snarry. I adore everything about the pairing; the angst, the heartache, the slow build-up is absolutely wonderful.

I try to write what I love to read and my novel-length is a good example of that. Pains and Contradictions took me three years to write (almost to the day), but it was a labor of love from the beginning. I tried to put my very best into it and I have the best to help me with that.

I've written a few other stories. And Dance By the Light of the Moon is a Snarry take on It's a Wonderful Life written for SeverusSighs' Grand Challenge. Falling Slowly, The Victory March, and Of Hope Restored were all written for various fests for Snape_Potter on IJ, and The Weight We Carry was written for the final Snarry Games. Everything else has been written for the group I moderate on both yahoo and IJ, SeverusSighs.

Shadow of the Other (written for the Snarry-a-thon) is my attempt at the slave genre. I can't abide stories where one person behaves badly towards his partner, but I do enjoy anguish and a deeper exploration into human desire. This fic is my attempt to look at that.

I also have many ficlets and drabbles that can only be found at my LJ.
