Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter.

I have enjoyed the Harry Potter books since I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for the first time, but it was not until after the release of Deathly Hallows that I began to feel the need to discuss them. Then I discovered fanfiction and was at first very suspicious about it. Why would anyone want to write about characters someone else invented? I found a lot of very good stories, though, and eventually I ended up writing some myself (not that many, this far, and perhaps not that good, either). I have enjoyed myself immensely when doing so, and I hope someone else will enjoy my stories.

As you may notice, especially if you browse my list of favourite stories, I have quite a soft spot for the character Severus Snape.

Too Deep for the Healing by waterside reviews
This story begins where Snape's story ends in canon: In the Shrieking Shack. Severus Snape survives the war - but which Snape? Who is he in the new circumstances? Some things will never be the same again. Other things, however, do not change so easily.

The Best Revenge by Arsinoe de Blassenville reviews
AU. Yes, the old Snape retrieves Harry from the Dursleys formula. I just had to write one. Everything changes, because the best revenge is living well. T for Mentor Snape's occasional naughty language. Supportive Minerva. Over three million hits!

A Prison Tale by waterside reviews
An AU story for young Snape, in which Voldemort wants to kill the Longbottoms. It is my answer to the question whether Snape's return to the good side depends on chance - Voldemort's choice - or on something that sets him apart from "real" Death Eaters.

Future without a past by Leliha reviews
A man is found with terrible injuries and absolutely no recollection of who he is and what happened to him... The idea has been used before - this is my version of how the story may develop. It includes SS and several OFCs.

A Thousand Years Ago or More reviews
The Foundation of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - this is how it all happened, at least one version of it . A silly little fairy-tale which could have made it into The Toadstool Tales, had it been recorded a hundred years or so earlier.
