Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.

Hi. I'm Jasmine, I'm 21 and I live in the south of England. I have just graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a degree in Environmental Science, and I want to do further study in the future (either a Masters or a PhD). I'm currently on a gap year - doing a mix of travelling and volunteering.

Books have been my solace for a very long time, and I love nothing more than being able to immerse myself in a good book. Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings are my favourite, but I also love Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, Brent Weeks, Peter V Brett, Trudi Canavan, Scott Lynch, David Eddings, Terry Brooks, Michael Sullivan, Maria Snyder and new authors A.J Smith and Anthony Ryan.

I am on tumblr, so feel free to follow and talk to me if you are too - my URL is ridenowtoruin.

Fight or Flight

This is going to be a big series - four or five main stories, plus the missing moments. I have some ideas about where I want to take this story, though this is still vague. I haven't decided who I'm going to kill off (there are some things from canon that are fixed), but I have a few ideas of who to save and who not to. If you have any strong arguments about this, please send me a message. Right, I'm going to use my profile to explain some things in this series that people have asked about or mentioned.

  • The relationship with Sirius and Remus. I am rewriting the earlier chapters, as there are lots of mistakes, but I will be adding/ changing things a bit. I've always thought of the Harry and Sirius relationship as more Father and Son, and Remus and Harry as Uncle and Nephew. Sirius is my favourite character in Canon, because of the affection he has for Harry, so I've always been keen on expanding that relationship. In my initial writing, I always thought that relationship was implied (kind of in the background), but I don't know if it came across that way (hence the rewrite).
  • Snape. I'm very conflicted on Snape in general. I don't know if loving Lily and keeping Harry safe makes up for everything. Even if you ignore how horrible he was to Harry, he was still vile to everyone else - especially Hermione and Neville. I was bullied at school, and I cannot condone how Snape treats his students. Not to mention that he became a death eater. Snape, in my mind, is not a nice character. He'll become a bit less antagonistic as the series progresses, but he will never be 'nice' or understandable. He's far too secretive.
  • Ron (and particularly his reaction to Remus being a werewolf). Ron has been raised with wizarding prejudices - goblins, house elves etc - and his initial reaction would, I think, be panic. I think he'd quite quickly realise that panic was idiotic, because it doesn't change anything. I have no plans to have Ron tell Remus' secret, and I think it would go against his character. Also, I am generally a fan of Ron - he's a good friend to Harry (with only a few exceptions in the books).
  • Remus/ Tonks will happen. Year five, I think.
  • 2014: I am not abandoning this story. I am still working on it, though a lot slower. I have a degenerative neurological condition that means that I've been in a wheelchair for a few years. It has recently begun to affect my hands, which means that I can't type as quickly or for as long as I used to. This means that updates will be a lot slower (and the lengths of chapters will probably vary more). I'm really sorry, and I hope that you can bear with me :)

    I'll say it now: I don't own anything you recognise, and even if you don't recognise it I probably still don't own it. But such is life...
