Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.

5.17.22 - I AM AVAILIABLE TO BETA!

Have a story? A chapter? An idea? I'd love to help, from simple proofreading to a full-on collaboration. PM me. Really. I don't bite.

I'm an English teacher with a secret passion for HP Fanfiction - Shh! Don't tell my students. Currently trying to beat the quarantine blues by reading and writing Snape-themed fiction. I welcome any and all feedback on my work, enjoy reading/reviewing other people's work, and am always happy to receive private messages. You can also find me on AO3 under the punny but misspelled Quarantime_Blues

Also feel free to check out the SSHG comedy co-written with the lovely Scumblackentropy:

The events of GoF through DH told from the perspective of Harry's twin, Penny Potter. Finding her life entangled with that of the Potions Master's, Severus Snape, Penny watches the war unfold from the side Harry is trying to defeat.

A year has passed since the Dark Lord fell. Around her, the wizarding world is rebuilding. But beneath the Dark Mark that brands Charlotte Fraser's arm, something is growing.
