Author has written 10 stories for Les Miserables, Harry Potter, and Sense and Sensibility.

Hmmm... How to do this, in the wake of the venerable Half Blood Prince...

I am going to tell you this, and I don't like it any more than you do.

I am not going to finish Housewarming. The reason for this isthat I cannot, for the life of me, write an AU. I have tried. If someone else wants to take it and run with it, fine by me. But I can't. It always ends in frustration on my part, and an unenjoyable reading experience on everyone else's.

Consciousness, due to the events of HBP, is still on. ;)

How damnably happy I am about that.

Did I mention that I worship Rowling? Never, never, did I dare hope...
