Merrick Mayfair - The Witch of Endor....
Having been totally off the grid for five years, I finally hit a vein of inspiration in April 2015 (which feels like a very long time ago now), when I began what I expected to be a modest six chapter story about Loki coming to Hogwarts and falling in love with Hermione. The end. This simple story rapidly evolved into a 22 chapter epic entitled Keeping the Stars Apart. Several sequels, spin offs and one shots followed and the simple story gradually became a storyverse with five main stories and seven one-shots.
I have finally completed Tales of the Third Brother and one more spin off for Christmas. At this point the KTSA verse and all associated material are officially complete. MKB my lovely Beta nods wisely at this, knowing that my obsession with the Hermione / Loki pairing isn't likely to go away anytime soon, but for the time being I have a WIP folder bulging with ideas I want to follow up so watch this space.
NEW W.I.P. The Spider's Web. Chapter Four now posted...
I write angst (too much according to MKB) romance, sex, and very occasionally, shameless, cavity inducing fluff.
I don't kill my principal characters, even though I put them through hell sometimes (and lets face it, Loki does do angst and trauma so beautifully)
Before I started writing seriously, I never understood authors who put notes about characters getting out of control. Having shared the inside of my head with a swotty, but badass bookworm and the Norse God of Mischief for a while now, I now know exactly what they mean. It's a rewarding if parasitic relationship, and my poor long suffering husband is promising to cite them both in the divorce case that he keeps threatening me with...
Cover art for all KTSA stories is "A Taste of Desire" by Slugette. http:///she does some amazing work. Thank you Slugette xx

The Hanging Tree. "I woke up one morning, thirty years old, with an ex-wife and a ulcer..." Harry Potter flees London, fame & his job with the Ministry of Magic to find a new life in a remote Cornish fishing village. But when a previous resident of the cottage is reluctant to move out, Harry turns to a local witch to help unravel the mystery. Caution - dark themes in later chapters. Harry / Hermione AU. Now complete.
Summer (The Saving of Draco Malfoy).Draco Malfoy is on the run from both the Death Eaters and the Order of the Phoenix following his failure to assassinate Albus Dumbledore at the end of The Half Blood Prince. Left with nowhere to turn who is the beautiful witch in the crimson robes, and what does she want with Draco - My first ever story, now revised and republished in five chapters, to include the sequel it took me five years to write.
Simple. Quiet and angsty moment after the Battle of Hogwarts. Luna and Neville. Inspired by Richard Thompson's "How will I ever be Simple Again"
"Dr Anderson Will See You Now". Extract from the casefiles of Dr Giles Anderson, relationship expert to the wizarding world. In which Draco has some serious issues and Hermione is far beyond the end of her rope. NOT to be taken as an example of a healthy relationship. One Shot.
Harry Potter / Avengers.
The Spider's Web. "Lets cut the bullshit" interjected Kingsley. "You are here representing SHIELD, a quasi military intelligence organisation that is so suspect that I wouldn’t touch it with a six foot broomstick under normal circumstances." Written in response to prompts from lo234 and Ms Kitty Black. Honestly - Natasha / Harry is not a pairing I've ever considered, but you know what - it works. When HYDRA discovers a reference to a terrible source of ancient power it triggers an international magical / muggle operation, as an unlikely couple race to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. But the closer they get to their prize, the more the web closes around them. Rated M for smut and because Harry has a filthy mouth when he chooses.
Thor / Harry Potter.
We'll Always have Paris. (Or How Sirius Came by his Flying Motorbike). Long before Harry Potter or the Avengers, a certain teenage Animagus met a certain green eyed Norse God in an underground club in Paris. My first excursion into PWP - Rated M for sex and because Sirius has a filthy mouth. Not part of the KTSA verse
In Memorium. For as long as she could remember Sarah had returned to the village of her birth every November to remember a man who died in a field in Flanders long before she was born. And every year the old man with the haunted eyes had been there too. Because sometimes survival is a guilt too hard to bear...
THE "KTSA" SERIES:
A Brother's Tale. "Lightening and thunderclouds over the Golden City gave way to weeks of grey skies and a steady cold rain as understanding finally dawned. Loki was gone. And the laughter and the magic in Thor's life had gone with him – to be replaced with the cold grey ghost of everything he never knew he valued." Companion piece to "Touch". Thor's thoughts and emotions in the time between Loki's fall into the Void, up to the beginning of Keeping the Stars Apart. Character Introspective dealing with the five stages of grieving. Thor. Prequel - One Shot
PART ONE: Keeping the Stars Apart. When Odin exacts a terrible punishment for Loki's behaviour in New York, Thor is forced to step in. But where can the most wanted man in the Nine Realms hide, and is anyone prepared to try to redeem him? 23 Chapters. Harry Potter / Thor.
Touch. "He knew her touch before he knew the colour of her eyes or the sound of her voice." Late night insomnia fueled ramblings - because despite my best efforts to write something else, Loki is a hard voice to get out of my head. A glimpse into Loki's thoughts and feelings during those first few weeks of Keeping the Stars Apart. Harry Potter / Thor One Shot
PART TWO: Till Death Us Do Part. When unexpected news is received from Asgard, the repercussions prompt Hermione and Loki to re-evaluate their relationship. What does it mean when "till death us do part" is measured not in years, or decades, but in millennia? When the world you know moves on, and those you love grow old and die, but you remain unchanged? Do you follow your heart, or do you take the only sane and rational choice and walk away...? Sequel, set almost two years after the end of KTSA. Harry Potter / Thor.
The Spotless Mind. When Loki and Hermione visit Asgard in Till Death Us Do Part, Hermione discovers more than she could ever have wanted to about the events that brought Loki to her at Hogwarts. But when the genie is out of the bottle, how do you put it back again..? PLEASE READ THE WARNINGS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE STORY. Sits alongside Chapter 8 of Till Death Us Do Part. Harry Potter / Thor. One Shot.
PART THREE: One Hand One Heart. You are cordially invited to the wedding of the year. A series of one and two shots. "Breaking News" parts 1 & 2, "Friends and Family", "Warning", "Written in the Stars" and "Hands Fast". Harry Potter / Thor.
PART FOUR: Of Oaths and Promises. A break in to an ancient vault below Gringotts Bank sets in progress a chain of events which will threaten everything Loki and Hermione care for, and may even spell the end of the Nine Realms themselves. My take on what The Dark World would have looked like in the context of the KTSA verse. WARNING. This is war so there will be character deaths. Harry Potter / Avengers
What's in a Name? "What's in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet". Three years after the end of Of Oaths and Promises, Loki considers the importance of names and titles, and the most important name he has ever been given. Harry Potter / Thor. One Shot.
Legacy. On a warm summer evening, Frigga ponders her legacy (a fluffy little piece inspired by MKB who challenged me to write something with no angst, no psychological trauma and absolutely none of the smutty stuff. Just hearts and flowers and puppies and kittens. I did my best...). Harry Potter / Thor. One Shot.
PART FIVE: The Tales of The Third Brother. By popular request - when Harry arrives in One Hand One Heart he decides to stick around. The stories of a Midgardian wizard in the Court of Asgard. Series of One Shots. Spin off to the KTSA verse - later chapters contain spoilers for "Of Oaths and Promises" Harry Potter / Thor. The one shot "The Watcher" was inspired by AgriAgripina on Deviant Art. http:///art/Hermione-Granger-350304055. Complete.
A Tale of Three Christmases: Three Christmas related one-shots from the KTSA and Third Brother verses. Chapters two and three conclude Sif and Harry's story arcs from the Third Brother verse. Complete.
Not a Place But a Feeling: In the run up to Harry and Sif's wedding Lilja considers the concept of soulmates, and discovers that True Love comes in many forms. A one shot for Valentine's Day, because leaving the KTSA verse alone was harder than I thought...
