Author has written 12 stories for Harry Potter.
Hello all, welcome to my home away from home. Or is it my home within home? I do spend most of my time at home on this site after all. So let's just call it my home. Welcome to my home. My new home that is. This is certainly not my first ffnet account, but I plan on it being my last. Not that I've had many. This one is my pride and joy that I've been planning for years.
Anyway, enough about that. Call me Lily, or McGlaughlin or both. Or just Miss, if you feel the need to be professional (although I'd think you a bit odd). What ever strikes your fancy. I'm old enough to be an adult, but I haven't lost most of my childish fancies. Everyone needs a little child in their life after all. I'm in college so my work will be sporadic at best. Most will be one shots and such because long stories take a ridiculously long time for me to write. Mostly because my priority muse Usem is a bitch. He's a gnomichoaun (my own creation of a cross between a gnome and a leprechaun) and a wonderful trickster. He grants me wonderful plot ideas, and then no motivation/inspiration to continue them. I've been hoping that my newest muse Trixie (just a simple fairy this time, although fairies are anything but simple) would fix this, but so far no luck. I've been working on my pride and joy Welcome to my Hell for several years and I'm nowhere near finished. Don't worry though. You'll all read it someday.
Right now I'd like to send a shout out to one of my dearest friends and my ever lovely and god like beta Cyhyr. I love you darling, you make my world go round and make it so all my readers don't cringe at my grammar. As much as I know I've made fun of you for reading grammar books, I do actually admire you grasp of our confusing English language that I do not have the patience to understand. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I'm a total slash fan. Love almost all of it. I stick to Harry Potter fics and generally prefer Harry centric, just seems to fit more for me. I love Harry with all the Slytherins out there except for maybe Theodore. He's usually good as a side pairing with Hermione or Ginny. He could be good with Harry though, I wouldn't know until I've read it and I've yet to. Harry/Draco is and forever will be my first love, closely followed by Harry/Severus. Then comes Harry/Voldemort in whatever form people wish to put him. I also adore Harry/Blaise, and every so often I feel the craving for a good Harry/Lucius. Rare pairings such as Harry/Rabastan also constantly capture my interest. If you like any of these stories, may I recommend some of my favorites.
Anything at all by The It she is a wonderful author and specializes exclusively in Harry/Draco. She is my all time favorite author who really got me hooked on slash. She was even kind enough to talk to me through pming and forever holds a place in my respect for dedicating a chapter to me (under a different name in case you go looking)
Next, also a HD, is A Panther's Heart by Copper Vixen it's very good and I've read it several times.
My final HD (at least that I'll waste time prattling about) is Checkmate by Naadi. A terrific story with a wonderful focus on their relationship.
Then, my all time two favorite fics Abandon and Reclaim by Batsutousai. These are HP/TR and are without a doubt the most amazing fics ever. This is what really should have happened in the series. I've read both of them at least thirty times or more, no exageration.
Then we have Forgotten Silence by Bittersweet Alias which is a wonderful HP/BZ that follows the seventh book very well and even adds in little details that make it even more realistic.
My favorite HP/SS fics come from Vingilot and the foremost of these is The Changer
Now, enough about stories I love (although these are really just the tip of the iceberg. As for content I'll take almost anything. Harry goes dark is wonderful, I love a good Dumbledore bashing, but sometimes I also like when the good guys win in a story. There are only a few things I really don't like. First and foremost I hate Lavender Brown. Like everything else this does have a story behind it (which is of course related to a fic) but now is neither the time nor the place. Second I don't like Dumbledore to be paired with anyone really. Not anyone. It's just a personal preference that's all. Also, try as I will, I just can't see Ron as gay. Lord knows I've tried. But I just can't do it. So unless it's a really really minor side pairing, you'll probably find me back clicking, no matter how much I like the story. This is nothing personal. I just can't get over it. There are a few other things that annoy me such as spelling character, or specific Harry world words incorrectly and portraying Blaise as a girl (he's a boy god damn it. get over it. move on. the only exception I make is for A Panther's Heart and that's only because he plays a very very minor role and is mentioned like twice in the whole 30 chapter story.) I also don't really read stories where Harry is a girl.
Oh, and one more thing. People who write "summary sucks, story is better" if you summary sucks it means you are unable to concisely write an accurate representation of your story which gives my no desire to read your story what so ever. I've often found that if I think the summary sucks, so too does the story so save me from your pleas. Your summary is what sells the story to me. There are hundreds of thousands of Harry Potter stories on this site. If you want me to read yours you need to make it stand out and telling me your summary sucks isn't the way to do it.
Finally, yes, I'm one of those hated people who doesn't review much. I'm sorry. If I took the time to review every story I read I'd spend more time reviewing than reading. Even so should I review more? Yes. I know it. Too many times I add a good story to my story alert without letting the author know I appreciate it. I apologize. If you are on my story alert, rest assured I like your story. If your story is on my favorites list I love your story. If you are on my favorite authors list I think you're the greatest thing since sliced bread. I know reviews make peoples world go round. Hell, they make my world go round and god I appreciate them, but I generally use reviews as my way of letting an author know that I was personally deeply touched or affected by their work in some way, good or bad. It's a special thing a review. I'm sorry for disappointing people, but that's how I look at it. (of course now I'm going to get fewer reviews cause I wrote this. go-fucking-figure. what goes around comes around, I get it, and I understand. I truly appreciate those who drop me a line more though, because I understand that it may not be something that they normally do and I take it to mean that my story meant something to them. thank you all).
Hey, normally I'm not one for these things, but I thought this one looked fun so I had to try it. I got it from JulzPadfootMoony's profile.

Ok, the wonderful Kamerreon, in her infinite wisdom, had created these sites that all writers should read. Helpful tips on writing fanfiction. The first has Do's and Don'ts for fics in general, plus some grammar help. The second talks about citrus writing (lemons/limes etc.) and their things to do and not do. I've found both of them extremely informative and helpful. Go check it out!
