Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.

Good Lord this stuff is old. Reactivated this account to find old fanfictions, so don't expect any updates. These days i spend most of my time on AO3 reading Stucky and DA:I fics... come join me down the 'content warning!' rabbit hole.

Enjoy this profile that I wrote 6 years ago...

I'm also on Deviant art! -

it's mostly Sherlock and Doctor Who stuffs, but anyways...

I love reviews (HINT HINT) :)

hi everyone!

As you can see I'm Snatching At Dreams. dont you just hate it when you know you had a great dream then previous night and you can only remember bits of it?

I'm from Australia, but would much rather be living in the UK...

Most of my stories are kind of on hiatus... sorry. I've been getting back into my art (which you can check out through the url up there ) and that's kind of taken over my life.

I am first and foremost a nerd. Doctor Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings rule my life.

i love writing romance, comfort, and comedy. and sometimes all 4 together :)

i am addicted to smiley faces :)

I have thing for tall, thin British men with high cheekbones. I also FREAKIN LOVE Alex Kingston. She is amazing.

please enjoy my fanfics and i apologise in advance if i take ages to load the next chapter :-)


'Pairings are like good shoes: you have to shop around until you find the ones that suit you best.'

I'm mainly a canon girl, but I won't say no to a brilliantly written AU, like 'The Hogwarts Blog' (which is pure genius and you should all check it out right now)

My OTPs are River/Doctor, Tonks/Lupin, Aragorn/Arwen and Jareth/Sarah... I also adore Molly/Sherlock (yeah, Sherlolly shipper, be afraid)

All the stories I write are canon/fanon, so obvious canon pairings (Ron/Hermione, Amy/Rory, Jack/Everyone...) plus fanon like (HP) Rose/Scorpius, Oliver/Katie. (DW) River/Jack (which is bloody hilarious as long as it's River's uni days), (S) Molly/Sherlock, Lestrade/Molly (honestly I just love Molly so darn much and want her to end up happily with SOMEONE) etc etc

here are my pet peeves for each fandom:

Doctor Who

I Hate it When - Amy and 11 are shipped. she's his MOTHER-IN-LAW, PEOPLE. Rory is not given time in a fanfic (Rory is brilliant), River is dissed (want a punch in the face?), Classic companions are dissed (because there were some really epic companions - Ace, for example) and when people don't care about Classic Who (without CLassic Who you wouldn't have Doctor Who full stop. So shut it.)


I hate it When - actually, I don't hate much to do with the Sherlock fandom. I basically ship every ship thats out there, and I haven't come across anything Sherlock related that I've hated.


Harry Potter

I Hate it When - Sirius is paired up with Marlene. When all the people named from the first Order are jammed into Lily and James' year group. When fanfic authors change the plot so characters are 'spared', or 'saved'. When Peter is dopey in Marauder fics. When there's not enough Lupin. When Harry is paired up with anyone apart from Ginny. When Rose and Scorpius don't end up together. When people insult the only true friends i had for a long time (Jo Rowling, you are a lifesaver)

Lord of the Rings

as a general rule I love LotR canon. I can't stand LotR AU. However, crossovers can be epic :D

I Hate It When - people forget the second R in Aragorn's name. people spell Eowyn incorrectly. In fact, spell ANY LotR name incorrectly and you're dead. When Pip and Merry are written (characteristically speaking) badly. When people dont like the Eowyn/Faramir pairing. When people don't give the Lord of the Rings books a fair go.


I hate it When - Jareth gives up on Sarah, when Sarah gives in to Jareth too easily (THE FAE GAVE HER A DRUGGED PEACH FOR GOODNESS SAKE, I WOULDN'T TRUST HIM), when Sarah is written as a wimp (the girls got backbone), When Jareth is written too americanly (the dude is played by DAVID BOWIE, people...) and finally, my pet peeve... WHEN THEY DON'T GET TOGETHER AT THE END!

So that's my general hates. aside from these, I'll pretty much read anything.



Doctor - tie between seven and eleven.

Non Doctor DW character - River, always River. second place tie between Ace and Donna


HP character: three-way-tie between Severus Snape, Luna Lovegood and Remus Lupin

LotR character: tie between Aragorn and Eowyn.

Fave Labyrinth characters - Jareth, Sarah and Ludo.

Ravenclaw students tend to be clever, witty, intelligent, and knowledgeable. Notable residents include Cho Chang, Padma Patil, and Luna Lovegood.

Mercy by Dobby's Socks reviews
"Only injured, River was sure, because the Doctor didn't die here. But the thing that had even dared to lay one blow on her Sweetie would." Set during "The Big Bang", but implies spoilers through "The Wedding of River Song". River/Doctor Amy/Rory Rated for one swear word.
