Hi there. =)

I've a penchant for many things: Writing, Theatre, Coffee, Peaches, Shoes, Reading, Harry Potter Series and Fan Fiction, Severus Snape, Draco Malfoy, Tyler Florence, Pajamas, Sylvia Plath, Alan Rickman, Independent Films, Oscar Wilde, Friedrich Nietzsche, Arthur Schopenhauer, Philosophy, Classics, French, Italian, Classical Music (I'm rather partial to Baroque, actually), Poetry, Romance, Pessimism, and AOL Instant Messenger.

You are free to visit my poetry at: www.fictionpress.com/~magicalauthoress

What do I do in my spare time? Easy. Read, write (anything -- novels, plays, fan fiction, philosophy, poetry, music...), watch movies/TV (I am a normal teenager after all), cook/bake...the list goes on.

I have four betas/editors whom I absolutely love (and appreciate) to death!
~Missy: I love you so much. You've inspired me in so many ways and I'm ever grateful for all that you've done for me! Thank you for giving me a reason to go on.
~Jessi: Ah. The keeper of my cynicisms (:grins wryly:) -- and I, the keeper of your witticisms. You have a wonderful talent of delivering constructive criticism -- it's more than I could've ever asked for. Thank you for loving my work.
~Craig: You understand me. That in itself is something incredible. What's more is that you also put my work under the strictest of scrutiny and nearly analyze it. It's quite fun when I get feedback emails from you. =) I love you -- you're brilliant! Thank you for your everlasting conviction in me.
~Sierra: Craig and yourself rather enjoy making my life a living hell, and whether or not I choose to realize it, it's for the better. =) I'm thrilled at the prospect of being able to work with you...not many people get such an opportunity. In a sense, you are my version of Professor Snape towards Harry -- cutting, to the point, but exact. You love things to go right in one...and though you may not think I appreciate/respect you, you are sadly mistaken -- I both appreciate and respect you with all my heart. Thank you for everything.

(At this point, I'd also like to acknowledge my friend Thomas, whose scathing remarks are more potion than poison and who also has both an uncanny knack for unfurling the psyches of my version of Ms. Rowling's characters, and understanding the psychology of it all. Thanks.)

My work status:

To Love Someone You Hate: An absolute piece of crap, if I do say so myself. I don't know what I was thinking, really...I think I'll more than likely take it down soon. As you all know, it's complete.

Past the Point of No Return: Something I was rather fond of, but I don't see it going anywhere. Unless someone would like to put me out of my misery and continue it or hand me some version of a plot bunny, I'd be much obliged.

The Final Threshold: *See comment(s) for Past the Point of No Return*

Of Peaches and Blood: My baby. =) I'm stuck on chapter five, I'm sorry to say. I've been getting lots of "lack of description" as far as what's been posted. I think in the meantine I'll take it down, revamp it with plenty of description, and re-post with extra chapters. Of course, I don't plan on doing that until I've completed the entire story.

A Mind's Whispers: I'm rather partial to this piece, actually. It's sheer angst...but I cannot explain how therapeutic it was to take a break from OPaB and write something like that. It really settled my mind a bit.

What to Look Forward to*

My new project: "Devils with Halos in Beautiful Capes"
-A series of three rather angsty, Tori Amos-inspired, reflective vignettes with SS/HG implications. Below I've included a summary for each vignette.

1. Our Apple Seed: Hermione's thoughts on the day a beginning became an end. ((Quite simply put, really. It's been written...though I plan on writing several versions and see what my betas think. Title comes from the Tori Amos song "Father Lucifer".))

2. Make Me Whole Again: Epilogue to "Our Apple Seed" -- Hermione handles the impact, though not quite as well as one would hope...or expect. ((Hasn't yet been written, though the plot sketch/scene structuring has been done. Title comes from a line in the Tori Amos song "Baker, Baker", which, by the way, I loved even before reading Riley's "Pawn to Queen".))

3. Not the Red Baron: Severus Snape was the Wizarding world's answer to Manfred von Richthofen -- unbeatable. But the Red Baron fell...as does he. Hermione's reflections. ((Also not yet written, but I simply can't wait to begin that particular piece! Plot sketch has been completed, but I haven't yet gotten around to scene structuring.))

Well, the world awaits you. I mustn't keep you from it.

And remember: "Unleash your imagination and free your soul."
