Author has written 23 stories for Harry Potter.

Cheers, I'm Fox, a college student and part-time writer. I'm also a self-taught artist, a music lover, and owner of far too many books. Seriously, my bedroom floor at home has literally been overtaken by various piles of paperbacks.

Harry Potter is my fandom, my source of endless entertainment, and the category in which you'll find all of my fiction.

Of course, when reading the HP books, I found myself far more interested in wondering about the backstories of all the adult characters. Due to this, you'll find I primarily write stories set in the 1940s up to the mid-1980s. First War, Marauder's Era...and then that WW2 Era that has no name in fandom (a fact which I find quite sad).

Remus Lupin holds the honor of being my favorite character, both to read and write (especially if there's a pink-haired metamorphamagus or a certain group of mischief makers involved).

Know what another excellent ship happens to be? Why, Moody/McGonagall of course. Surprised? That's a fairly common reaction. But give it a chance. Besides, you know you're curious now. And to aid you in this sudden curiosity, I've written quite a few Moody/McGonagall fics which you can find just a bit further down the page. So go on, have a look.

If you're here for fic, I certainly hope you enjoy. Reviews/comments/messages/emails/owl post are always appreciated and I always do my best to respond.
