Harry Potter Fanfiction:

I'm a longtime reader of SS/HG, and a writer of fanfiction. I love to hear from my readers and try to answer all reviews -- though recently I've had difficulty largely because I can't tell when reviews have already been answered. Fanfic dot net doesn't make it terribly easy to answer, I'm sorry! If anybody wants to reach me, please feel free to do so via email at machshefa1 at gmail dot com. I very much appreciate the reviews. My readers' reactions mean a great deal to me, so thank you for sharing them :)

I also post to The Petulant Poetess, OWL, and Ashwinder. You can find me on Live Journal under the username Machshefa.

Story information you might find helpful:

1. "Tree of Life" can be found at OWL in it's original, full-graphics format. Go to: http:// owl. tauri. org/stories.php?psid=8972 (remove the spaces) or to the Severus/Hermione gift exchange (http:// community. livejournal. com/sshg_exchange/162487.html) to see the story with its graphics intact.

2. "King of Swords" Is now complete. Thanks to all of you who stuck with the story despite long gaps in posting. I hope you enjoy it!

3. Fanfiction . net has swept through and removed all scene breaks from my (and others') stories. I need to set aside some time to go through each and every chapter I've posted and reinsert them. So if you're reading and find an abrupt change of point of view without warning, that would indicate a missing scene break. I'm so sorry, and I'll get back to those chapters just as soon as I can. You can find all of the stories here elsewhere if you prefer, as well. I've made it through my multi-chapter stories thus far and some of the one-shots.

Sherlock BBC Fanfiction:

Most of my Sherlock fanfiction is also posted here. I have written several stories for Season 1 and am venturing into the new series now. Enjoy!

Enjoy and thanks so much for reading!
