Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.

Hello to the curious.

Man around forty, happily married, happy that writing isn't the other thing I spend all my time doing because a different filter is a good thing.

I also post on SIYE. An updated version of this story is at metafic.com.

It's a lot more fun to work within the bounds of character (to me) than to make these people into something they're not. That said, it makes sense that new circumstances might make them behave differently - but they should remain the same people, at least (to me again) if the frame is to be maintained. It's the best part about writing this kind of fiction - making something that works in the frame.

But you know, writing is good any way one does it, so if slash is your thing or you want to write yourself into the story, have fun. Get it out. Better to create than to be a passive consumer, if you are so inclined.

Reviews are the reward for doing this. Good or bad, they are a dialogue that enriches. So give me a few!


If you would like to have this story fleshed out a little more, you might visit myspace.com/phantomlimbscore, where I've put up some orchestral music that I've written a la John Williams to complement the story. This will be updated as I have time. Please listen and enjoy!

UPDATE 5/6/13: I'm 11,940 words into the next chapter. More to come, including what D doesn't want to remember, what's wrong with America, particle physics, shampoo, elf skulls, leather, shaggy footwear and a nice long chat with Dumbledore.

Also, I'm curious if anyone ever listened to the music.

UPDATE 6/27/14: It's not over, though it's been a very long time. I suppose I should have said "ON HIATUS" a while ago. But I've written even more for this story - just trying to string it all together.

UPDATE 11/26/14: Still not dead. I want this to be out there, for whatever it's worth. I'm shooting for January 1.

A Clock on the Face of Hell by IdSayWhyNot reviews
Fate was sealed that night. I was to live and fight, to breathe and conquer. The night I died and lived England celebrated the end of the nightmare that had yet to begin and praised the baby they would later fear and hate. I am Harry Potter. I am legend.

The Potter Conspiracy by darklordmike reviews
Slightly AU, post-GOF. A Harry/Parvati epic. Civil war is coming to wizarding Britain, and Harry's role will be a complicated one. Very manipulative Dumbledore, with some revisions to early canon. Harry will have a backbone in this one. Rated M. Enjoy!

Phantom Limb reviews
A young man realizes he's been the victim of a prophecy. He struggles to make sense of his place in an unfamiliar world. Sound familiar? Nothing's familiar to this young man. Nothing except his aunt Arthur. New readers: give this one some time.
