Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.
I'm an often reader and (very) occasional writer of Harry Potter fanfics.
I do not like reading slash fics. I have no problem with gay people. I am friends with gay people. However, reading about it in explicit detail does absolutely nothing for me. No problem with it as a minor pairing (eg a Harry/Hermione fic that happens to have a Remus/Sirius pairing in it or something) - let's face it there are a lot of homosexuals in the world and it's only reasonable to assume that at least some of them would happen to be witches and wizards in these stories. But, no matter how many times I've seen it, nor how many people seem to think so, Harry and Malfoy hate eachother - this is not repressed sexual tension nor do I subscribe to the idea of "thin line between love and hate" (to a lesser extent this also applies to Ron and Hermione actually). If you are looking for anything like this, you are so far from being in the right place that I actually pity you.
My favourite pairing is probably Harry/Tonks, but I will read most and like many. Having said that, I am really not a big fan of Luna and having her as a major part of a story (esp. paired with Harry) usually annoys me to the point where I stop reading.
Big fan of the Super!Independant!Powerful!Amazing!Harry type fics.
As a rule I will not write angst. With a few exceptions I won't read it either.

I've recently (like about 5 mins ago) reposted my first story, The Forgotten Power (I must have either been drunk or sleep deprived when i came up with that title), and depending on reaction from readers I may continue it in one form or another (would probably want to enlist the services of a beta on this one if I did)
I also have a few little bits of where I've started writing a story and then either got sick of it or got distracted by something else and forgotten to get back to it. We're mainly talking single chapters here. I may put them together and publish them as like a "rejects" compilation, and continue ones that prove popular...I don't know. I'm very much looking for reader input here and a direction to go, because I would like to get back to writing as I've got some free time coming up, so if you've any ideas/suggestions then please contact me.

Ok everyone, I've decided to continue the story. It won't be happening straight away becuase i'm going to be busy for a while, but i'm now determined that it WILL be happening. I've updated the author's note at the end of the story to reflect this decision. thank you all for the messages and reviews, even the ones i haven't replied to have been read and appreciated, so you have my thanks. anyways, i'll see how everything goes and hopefully have something out within a few weeks.
for now, all i can say is watch this space... :)

Well, I lied. unlike what i have told many of you in response to reviews and messages, i will NOT be updating The Forgotten Power this weekend. The reason? Simple. I'm writing a different story instead. This is one that i wrote the first part for a while ago and never got anywhere with, but not ive got ideas and really want to work with it. At least for now, this will be my new pet project. I do however maintain what i have previously said - TFP is not abandoned, it's just on hold. I will get to it when i get to it, but i am enjoying this new story more right now.
So a little about what has me so excited...It's very different to forgotten power. it's a harry/hermione fic (i know some of you won't like this, but it's probably my second favourite pairing, so live with it). A time-travel fic - i know this is over done, but i like them and am hoping to do a fair few things differently (for a start, it's one of only a few that i've seen in which more than one person goes back, if we aren't counting the "everybody goes back in time and meets their parents as kids" fics which as a rule i hate) and hopefully that will be enough to make it interesting. This is me, so of course we're going to be seeing a very powerful Harry, but hermione is also going to be pretty strong (not quite on the same level in a fight, but bloody close). as a rule, i don't like Ron, so once again, he's a prick. i'm also going for the manipulative dumbledore angle again...it just seemed to work with my plans, though he MIGHT be redeemed later (not sure). anyway, give it a read and let me know what you think.

Been a long time since I last put an update on here...longer than I thought actually...so I wanted to let everone know what was going on. First of all, I'm VERY sorry that I've not posted any new chapters. Shortly after my last posting a few personal changes went on (for once, these were for the better) and long story short I'm now a university student studying physics...needless to say I'm a little lacking in spare time just now, but I AM still working on my stories when I get chance and they are NOT abandoned - I simply havent actually got enough that I'm happy to call it a chapter and post it yet (and at this point I don't imagine it happening in the near future...possibly mid to late summer I'll have something - though even that is far from certain). I do still read all of the reviews that I recieve - even if I don't always reply anymore - and I apreciate each and every one of them and the support of you, the readers. I thank you all for your patience - please bear with me and I promise that I will finish both of my stories (and possibly others as well), even if it takes me another 10 years to do it, I will never truely stop writing and I will NEVER abandon either of these stories - average though they are, I've spent too many hours and days on them to give up now and they mean far too much to me. Once again, thank you all for the kind reviews and messages.
