Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.


Hello! Thank you for stopping by. I still read reviews and PMs and will try to reply. Sometimes I'm busy or taking a break, so it may take some time. Thank you if you've taken the time to write a review. If you have PMs disabled, or reviewed anonymously, I won't be able to reply, but I appreciate your thoughts all the same. ( ゚゚)/

Audio Book / Podfic of My Stories:

Voice actor PsychoticFireBadger has created a podfic (an audio book) of "Miles to Go Before I Sleep" and the first chapter of Never Say Remember (the original version, before the re-write). He has a soothing British voice, turning the words into a bedtime story. His Snape voice is a delight. He can be contacted on Reddit at u/PsychoticFireBadger.

Unfortunately, I cannot post outside links on FFN, but the stories are available on archiveofourown. Use the following terms in a search:

After a long break from fanfic, I've found the extra time to get back into it (thanks, Pandemic!). The original version of Never Say Remember is posted on archiveofourown(DOT)org (no edits, other than fixing typos, mis-spelled Potter-isms, and the occasional awkward word choice). Thanks to Christy Corr from unknowable room for archiving the first 20 chapters. If you prefer the original version in all its unpolished glory, you can find it here - remove (DOT) with an actual dot:



Chapters 1-5 of Never Say Remember have been polished and copy-edited (see Acknowledgements, below). No major changes, plot-wise. I'm going deeper into the heads of the characters and fixing a few problems that sharp-eyed reviewers pointed out.


Never Say Remember is complete! Thank you to all the readers who stuck with it while it was a WIP. :)

All characters belong to their respective owners (not me).


Thank you to Christy Corr at unknowableroom - an incomplete version of Never Say Remember was posted at that site, and she imported it to AO3. She saved the original version of the story and got me set up as the author so I could post a completed version there, and was generally a great help.

Thanks to Badgerlady, who generously offered to copy edit Never Say Remember! I've taken the opportunity to polish sections here and there.

FF member OoJuliaoO has kindly translated "Miles to Go Before I Sleep" into German. Fitting, as Hedwig is a German name (and perhaps a German owl!). You can find the story in my favorites, or click here:

Thanks to Kirinin for beta-ing chapters 20, 22 and 23! Her stories can be found here:

Off-Site Recs

Here is a list of off-site fanfic recs (on-site recs are in my favorites). FFN doesn't allow off-site links, so you will need to use a search engine.

A Year Like None Other

A popular and well-loved fanfic. If you haven't read it, set aside some time and do so. One of the first "Snape mentors Harry" stories, and highly addictive.

Potions and Snitches

A story archive where the premise is Snape being a father figure for Harry. No HP/SS slash allowed, so you can enjoy father/son and mentor/student stories without the weirdness of it mixing in your brain with slash stories. Easy to navigate, and well-loved stories are given high ratings and "featured story" status.

Bartleby by QuarantineBlues reviews
*Now Complete* That's when she kissed him. It was an experiment, really, a light drag of dry lip against dry lip, just to see if it did anything for her. It didn't. She didn't feel her stomach swoop or her heart flutter. The world didn't stand still or narrow until nothing else mattered. She wasn't even mildly turned-on. There was nothing.

A Difference in the Family: The Snape Chronicles by Rannaro reviews
We have the testimony of Harry, but witnesses can be notoriously unreliable, especially when they have only part of the story. This is a biography of Severus Snape from his birth until his death. It is canon-compatible, and it is Snape's point of view.
