Poll: The climax to A Lonely Path is coming near! There is one section that I have not entirely decided how I want it to go down. I know what needs to happen, but I'm being indecisive on some details. So I need your help! Answer me this: When things get toughest, should Harry's friends (Hermione, Neville, Ron, /- Susan) be there by his side in the center of the fight (whether it be a psychological or a physical fight) or just supporting him from the sidelines?

Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.

I must confess I have no real concept of what one writes for one of these things. I have difficulty imagining anyone being interested enough in my boring life to bother with reading it. Suffice it to say, I am a twenty-five years old veterinary student. The demanding nature of my career goals are such that I do not anticipate having a great deal of free time for writing. I do enjoy it, though, and I suppose that is the point. When I was little, I wanted to be an author; I have an overactive imagination and thus always have stories running amok in my brain. As I got older, however, my more pragmatic personality took over and my passions turned toward physiology and chemistry. Perhaps less glamorous, but more practical. I am also a complete and utter bibliophile, never going anywhere without a book. I have a particular weakness for Victorian era British literature, but I will read just about anything I can get my hands on.

I suppose I should admit that I have never before written or indeed read fan fiction. I am a complete novice to the entire realm. I have always been quite offended by the butchering of the characterizations of absolutely perfect works of art. As such, my main goal in writing is to stay true to the characters that those before me have created with their far superior imaginations. I have only you, the reader, to tell me if I have succeeded in that respect. I very much hope that you will oblige me in letting me know if I seem to have missed the mark.

If you have reached this far without giving up from sheer boredom, there is nothing left but for me to thank you for showing so much interest and support in my writing.



A note concerning Knowing Where to Look:

I really just wanted to assure any Knowing Where to Look readers out there that this story is very near and dear to my heart; I have no intention of abandoning it, not least because I have already written the ending and don't want to waste it. That being said, right now, I am really focusing on my other story, A Lonely Path, which has a bit more of a following. LP is getting near the climax and the plot is starting to move fast; consequently, people are really going to want faster updates. Most unfortunately, this is coming at the expense of KWtL.

I must therefore apologise to any KWtL fans out there. I'm afraid we must, for now, consider this story on hold. I know, I know. How very tedious of me. I lament it with you. But please believe me when I say I haven't forgotten poor Gawain, and I have every intention of continuing his story once LP is finished. I'm sorry to keep you waiting, but I just don't have time to be updating both.

Miscellaneous Updates:

17.03.10 -- Couldn't sleep and randomly decided to draw up a floor plan for Remus's cottage to accompany A Lonely Path. Might come in useful for future chapters...or it might not. Take a look if you like. Go easy on me; I'm no architect.

and the outside...sort of...:

also: Harry's London flat:

and the outside:

01.12.12 -- Exciting news! You can now read A Lonely Path in Portuguese! are unlike me and can actually read Portuguese... You can find A Lonely Path translated by Jujuba L at

05.06.12 -- Okay, I may have gotten overexcited about the new book cover images...

26.05.13 -- I know that it is frustrating for many of you that I do not update frequently. I just wanted to say that writing is my hobby, and I do have a career that has to come first. I'm working in the hospital now with about 65 hour work weeks, and quite frankly, writing is not the first thing that comes to mind when I get home at 21:00. Usually I'm more focused on supper and sleep. That being said, I have no intention of abandoning either of my stories. I do in fact write little snippets here and there, I just don't have time to sit down and write a whole chapter all at once. I appologise for keeping you waiting. I don't do it for the sake of my own amusement.

Who is Gawain Robards? JKR gave no information about him beyond his name & profession. The story of a man who had lost hope in the world, humanity, & himself, and his unexpected means of finding it again with some subtle help from the BWL. Post DH cannon.
