Author has written 18 stories for Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Gorillaz, Lord of the Flies, This Is England, Chronicle, Wuthering Heights, and Star Wars.

The name's Sophie, baby.

I'm not a particularly interesting person to write about.

I like to think that I'm beyond the whole 'screaming fan-girl' thing, but I am completely and utterly a screaming fan-girl for cherry-magpie-x. She is the owner of my metaphorical ear and probably the reason everything that I've written exists. Her writing is just so diabolically humorous and dark and pretty you'll fall (almost) as much in love with her as I have. Oh, and, when that happens, make her aware of that love, yeah? :)

'Cause no-one inspires me more than she does.

My avatar is a fanart of my Gorillaz OC Pris, drawn beautifully by the wonderful MaffyUndead (thank you so much!). For the full picture see here: The girl has true talent, and some pretty amazing drawings and fics! Go snoop about her deviantART and fanfiction page.

Thanks for taking the time to read my work, if ya have. It means a lot.
