Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter, and Labyrinth.

No one wants to read a long description about someone else so let's make this short. I give you, The Basic Facts in One Minute! (two, if you are a slow reader) Drums, please.

I'm a 19-year-old not-a-girl-not-yet-a-woman who lives in Finland. I have a passionate love-hate relationship with fanfiction, Harry Potter being my biggest obsession. I'm also a huge Whedonverse fan and I recently fell in love with the wonderful world of Labyrinth. (And with the wonderfully tight-fitted pants of David Bowie) In addition to spending time in fantasy worlds, I like to read real books, spend time with non-imaginary people and to paint. And dance. That's about it.

I'm a lazy writer, I do like to write something every now and then but usually I don't publish anything. The internet is full of bad fanfiction already, my contribution is hardly needed. However, if I do publish something and you are considering reading it, please remember that English is not my mother tongue, and I don't have a beta. If you tolerate grammatical mistakes and misspellen words as badly as I do, I recommend you don't read my stories. I make mistakes. Frequently. But if you happen to be one of those kind, gentle, forgiving souls who don't lose their sanity over badly written fiction, be my guest and read&review!

07/04/10: Going through a bit of a personality crisis, here. I used to be ChannaSelene at first but I never liked that name because it had angstyfantasygeekwannabewiccan written all over it. Then I changed it to MerinoFox, but I didn't like that one either because it was silly and made me feel guilty by reminding me of the felting project I promised to do for my aunt four weeks ago. I endured that one for three days, Then I changed it to my current nick. IlonkaBackwoods is an anglicisation/translation of my Finnish nom de plume and it's constructed of my middle name and my grandmother's maiden name. It feels like me and, hopefully, I'll stick to it.

Bookworm and the Beast by JustRaeInc reviews
It's the typical Head Boy and Head Girl setup. Good news though. While this story has all the makings of your standard, farfetched Hermione and Draco fan fic, it is devoid of the usual grammatical errors and poor writing. Yay. PreHBP. No spoilers

Of Love and Other Severe Irreconcilable Crises by Heist reviews
There was something patently cruel about a Sarah that didn't believe in magic, yet there she was, patently not believing in magic. Unrequited love has a LOT to answer for.

The Never Series by Ergott reviews

The Other 11,001 Things to be Miserable About by Heist reviews
Hermione does not take disappointment sitting down. Draco does not handle falling in love standing upright. A love story of public drunkenness, family legacies, bad hair, quidditch, melancholy caribou, and falling down. A lot. DMHG, EWE.

The Gift That Keeps Giving by Lixxle reviews
COMPLETE! Based on Mercuralis’s pic “You know you want it”. It’s the King’s birthday; the goblins are on a present-buying spree using Sarah’s credit card, the King is acting a trifle emo, and Sarah is baking. Chaos and adult-type touching ensues. JS

Bargaining reviews
Sarah has no doubt about who has been haunting her with strange shadows. It would be a good idea to get in doubt, because Ludo's new friend has had a couple of extremely boring centuries. An epic quest, a romance and mortal peril guaranteed. J/S
