Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter.

Hey, I'm an 23 year old male writer - and although we're about as rare as winning the lottery, there isn't a prize for finding a guy on fanfiction.net.

I live in New Zealand, as you can see, so if I spell things with an extra 'u' - remember, it's right in my dictionary.

Things I like in fan-fiction: well-written, well-structured stories, with characters that genuinely live up to their potential and portrayal in the source material. That's what I aim for in my own writing. Speaking of...

My works: Picking up from where JKR left off, Wrath of Merlin is now completed, and has an accompanying oneshot: Sword Beach. A good story is made better with a sequel: Auror Commander, which is effectively Act II to Wrath of Merlin's Act I.

I've also written a couple of one-shots that are lighter fare about Teddy and Victoire: Intoxicating, and The Wedding and the Window. Despite the very small amount of time that they're part of the canon, they're compelling characters and make a great couple.

Finally, my latest oneshot, 1945, is a snippet of Dumbledore's involvement in the Second World War.

A Game of Style and Brutality by BarneyXII reviews
From Hogwarts' historic pitch to the famous stadiums of Europe, Harry fights to earn his place amongst the all-time greats. The stakes are high, and sheer talent is never enough. It's more than just a game. A Quidditch story.

Buried Treasure and Transmogrify by Rienna Hawkes reviews
Lily Evans has spent years despising James Potter. He has spent just as long worshiping her. When seventh year pairs them Head Boy and Girl, each comes to realize that their judgment isn't quite what they thought it was. This is the same story that was over on Checkmated, but I completed it here. Prequel to Heroes for Ghosts. Warning: this story is a strong M rating.

The Life and Times by Jewels5 reviews
She was dramatic. He was dynamic. She was precise. He was impulsive. He was James, and she was Lily, and one day they shared a kiss, but before that they shared many arguments, for he was cocky, and she was sweet, and matters of the heart require time.

Boyfriend by Molly Raesly reviews
Potter was going to say that he wasn't my boyfriend. I couldn't let him do that. For the love of Merlin, I could not let him do that. I had to stop him. He couldn't tell her the truth. So I did the only conceivable thing I could think of. I kissed him.
