Frequently Asked Questions:

How come your fics are so well worded?

Because I write out of love. They say "look in thy heart and write". That's what I do. I write what I love and nothing more.

But, how do you do that?

Well, let's think about something we can all enjoy- food. I'll use the example of steak (vegetarian and vegan friends can picture... uh... a tofu steak?). If you say that the steak is juicy, you get the idea that okay, we have a juicy steak on our plate. But what if you were to say that the steak was cooked to absolute perfection. A perfect plating with a sprig of parsley on top. The bottom of the plate lightly sizzles from the succulent beef. As you press your knife to the meat, it parts at the very touch. You gently press the steak into your mouth, allowing each taste bud to savor every individual flavor that can be picked out. Something like that, ya know?

Are you a professional writer?

If you define "professional" as being paid to write something, then yes. If you define it as a career choice then no, I'm just a student of the game.

Nota Bene:

I just write for fun, and I write for my own loves. If you don't like what I've written, you're more than welcome to voice your opinion. I live for reviews, as it's the only thing that can make me better. I will always take into account what people picture, but ultimately, my stories are my own.

Remus Lupin is the Defence teacher for the Ministry's Auror Trainees. An alternative "how they met" & subsequent relationship for our pair! Born from how much I'd fancy Remus if he were my teacher, continues through HP Timeline. AUish but fits with canon.

I Won't Close My Eyes reviews
A lyrical one-shot featuring the thoughts running through Nymphadora Tonks' head and the books she reads during Remus' prolonged absence due to his being a noble git and all that. A bit more angsty than my typical works, but relaying a message of hope.

Nymphadora Tonks entered her bedroom. Alone, miserable, and dead to the world, the one thing she cared about had disappeared, and she didn't know if she could make it. How could one person have such a hold on her?
