Author has written 41 stories for Harry Potter, Sherlock, and Radio Dramas.

Hello!

College-age student of things. Most of my stuff is an experiment one way or the other. Lots of character studies and one-shots here.

Too many of my BBC Sherlock fics are marked "S/J-ish" now; mostly, those are gen-but-shippy. Interpret how you'd like, of course :)

Finally, you can also find me on tumblr, LJ, and AO3 (which is usually more up to date, tbh). Drop me a line; I like to talk!

Onward to the reading! (Reviews/concrit extremely welcome.)


Mar 29, 2012: So I hate to do this, but..."Unexpected Encounters" should probably be considered on indefinite hiatus. (I'm really sorry if this makes you sad in any way!) Going back, the characters don't feel very...in character to me. Part of this might be that I'm not as into the HP fandom as I used to be, and the characters have gradually slipped out of my mind; and the other is the fact that Draco Malfoy of canon is...not that likable. To convincingly account for him requires a lot of skill and dedication, and I'm just not the person to do it.


P.S. Transformative works: are love! If you'd like to remix/podfic/translate/etc any of my work, please consider the permission enthusiastically granted.
I'd also be thrilled if you linked me afterwards, so as to properly appreciate it and credit you.
