Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter.

Greetings one and all,

I'm mystfatale and I'll be your author for the evening.

A few things about me (so you know where I'm coming from) - I was born in the UK (Wales), and am currently living in Perth, Australia.

Fandom wise I am very much firmly centered in Harry Potter, though I do not ever write about this particular character.

The only ship I'm really dedicated to is Eileen Snape nee Prince/Tobias Snape; I'm somewhat unhealthily intrigued with their completely dysfunctional relationship. I also write Severus Snape/Aurora Sinistra but again - this is also with extreme dysfunction... supperhappyromanticjoyful relationships just don't impress me so it seems ;P

I don't like Deathly Hallows - so my fics therefore are usually backstories, generally about Snape or based on him and those connected to him, and I don't focus on anything post-DH. I bring you this info just you know what you're in for when/if you decide to read my fics (and I thank you if you do)

If you want to know anything else, just PM and I'll do my best to reply swiftly. Please enjoy my fics and review them if you feel the need. I don't push for reviews, I just like people to read what I've done and take something away from them. However, I greatly appreciate reviews.. so if you have the time I would absolutely love to know what you think.

However, I will say that if you chose to favourite my stories (thank you, it means a lot, really) - I would very much appreciate if you left a review for the fic too. If I love a story so much as to favourite it I would think that others would feel the same as me and like to leave a review. So thanks!

Enjoy :)

Fics I am currently writing

The Pureblood Prince

I am intending this story to span over generations, from the Marauder-era to the late 90's era of Hogwarts. It focuses on Eileen Snape nee Prince and her sons backstory. This is a fic that is very close to my heart and so I am taking great effort and time in pushing out the chapters - please bear with me. I hope it will all be worth it in the end.
