Hallo, my name is Alex. I am an English literature and film studies graduate from Aberdeen University, currently working as a school teacher. I am a great fan of books and films, particularly the Harry Potter series, Watership Down and The Secret of NIMH, among others. When I discovered fanfiction.net, I was presented with this golden opportunity to take part in writing and sharing alternate stories with other fans of my favourite works. Welcome to my little kingdom of fanfiction!
