Author has written 18 stories for Harry Potter.
The two (undeniably sexy) writers of this profile met serendipitously one night at the Leaky Cauldron when a cackling snorkack absconded with both of their brooms. While sipping their respective alcoholic beverages, they spotted each other across the crowded room and immediately fell in love. After bonding over a brief but rather exhilarating bar fight - which resulted in passionate argument over the appropriateness of using one's looks alone to disarm an opponent - the two decided to share their love of tattoos, older men, and copious drinking with the world.
Favouring a burgundy cloak and a pimp cane while imbibing more than her fair share of goblin wine is angelically-devilish. While she has a deep appreciation for the companionship and company of youth, she spends most of her time in compromising and often questionably legal sexual positions with devastatingly-gorgeous older men. She has a weakness for reckless, tattooed, devil-may-care middle-aged playboys with Peter Pan complexes, and lycanthropes. In the event that she isn't working her way through the 7 Deadly Sins in a slow decimation of her moral standards, she likes to water plastic plants, organize immovable furniture, and paint garden gnomes. When she's not writing incredible tales of the romantic and often smutty variety, she likes to go by the name Meg.
Her perpetually-inebriated accomplice, wearing robes so purple they would make Dumbledore squeal while brandishing a flagon of Rosmerta's fine mulled mead, is Grande.Vanilla.Skim.Latte. Though she adamantly denies any unhealthy obsessions with mischievous ginger-headed twins, the surreptitious glances and consistent "research" trips to Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes suggest otherwise. When she isn't spontaneously throwing every unlikely pairing she can think of into brilliant and often comedic romantic situations, she likes to despair over her avatar's perpetual identity crisis resulting in mass confusion and chaos. She has reluctantly saved the wizarding world several times, unbeknownst to Harry Potter, and is credited with teaching Draco Malfoy how to effectively deliver sarcasm. While she throws Meg's gnomes gleefully from the Astronomy Tower, the name Amy can be heard shouted all the way in the Great Hall, casting both awe and fear in the hearts of Slytherins everywhere.
So, pour yourself a glass of firewhisky, sit back and enjoy!
Things you may or may not want to know about us, our fics and the world at large:
Did you Know: We're on Twitter! It's a great way to find out if we are working on something, procrastinating or even glimpse previews of upcoming fics. The link is our homepage, check it out! We are also on Granger Enchanted!
Updates: We would like to thank you for your patience as we both struggle to balance our work and home lives. We will never abandon a fic, but we have had to slow down. We ask for your understanding and encourage you to message us if you feel that it has been far too long since we updated. Sometimes all we need is a little nudge :)
How do we write?: Some of you may be wondering how The Golden Duo operate. We are buddies on AIM where we talk crap for hours and ocassionally work on plot lines. Generally we have races (always beginning with the words 'ready, set and go') where we write 1000 words and email back and forth. For these races to work we need to be working on 2 fics at the same time - hence the double updates you will often see. Most of the time one of us will have a 'good' idea and the other will help make it an 'awesome' idea.
Do we know each other in real life?: YES! The Golden Duo met officially in March of 2010. Meg (who lives in New York, USA) braved the 24+ hour plane ride down to sunny Melbourne, Australia - where Amy lives - in order to finally meet her partner in crime for real. It was love at first sight, and a magical 2 weeks passed before Meg unfortunately had to hop on a plane and come back to Real Life. But we DO know each other now! Amy is currently in the USA visiting Meg & eating deep-fried food.
Future Stories: One-shots, the completion of Playwitch & hopefully another multi-chapter fic.
What do we want from you?: Donations can be made to account number... jk. All we ask is that you enjoy our stories enough to keep reading. Without an audience we tend to draw on ourselves. Oh and Meg is a bit of a review whore, so those are nice as well; but Amy understands that you are probably busy, a little bit shy or just lazy, so you don't have to if you don't want to :D But you know you want to.
