Author has written 45 stories for Harry Potter.
6/14/14- Once again, I must beg your forgiveness...Real life has been an absolute b*tch to me for the last year. I have been ill (walking pneumonia is ghastly!), my son has been ill, we have both been ill. Perimenopause is absolutely horrific...if you are a woman, and can avoid the hormonal surges, I would highly recommend doing so. Daily headaches that are sometimes so bad I can't focus my eyes, hot flashes that mean you could probably fry an egg on my chest, mood swings so bad that I, sometimes, have to actually lock myself in the bathroom so that I don't yell at my son, crying jags that leave me wrung out and wondering what the f*ck just happened, becoming so irritable with the stupidity at my job that I have placed my continued employment there in jeopardy no less than three times...and the heightened sense of smell that makes even flowers some of the world's worst smelling objects (let's not even discuss perfume or cologne). This is just a portion of what I have been dealing with...as such, I still want to remind everyone who actually reads these things...I have NOT given up my stories...they will be completed, just...not as quickly as I had hoped. I am sorry :(
4/24/14 - Alright...I got a review that I just had to address. To the 'Guest' said that they didn't have an account, so they couldn't (wouldn't) leave their name: You were right...I didn't like your review; but, hey, that's your own opinion...and you know the old saying about opinions. I have absolutely no intention of changing what is in any of my stories to conform to others' beliefs. If my writing offends you...don't read it. To repeat something I have stated before...I write for me. Not that I don't take other things into consideration while writing, but I write primarily for me. Yes, you will find my personal beliefs scattered throughout my stories...and, yes...they may be offensive to others. I'm not begging you to read my stories, in fact, if you find something you don't like, I will beg you not to read them. I am not a Christian and have found, in my personal experiences, that quite a few Christians (just like those in other religions) are quite prejudiced against anyone who doesn't believe what they do. Religion is a matter of faith, if you have faith, then the religion shouldn't matter. I have a tendency to make my characters Pagan because I am. I grew up in a family that believed quite strongly in their version of Christianity and looked down on anyone who thought or believed differently than they did. My own siblings refuse to discuss any kind of religion near me because I 'turned my back on God' and I'm 'going to go to Hell'. My parents thought that Catholics and Jewish people were going to go to 'Hell' because they didn't believe in what they were taught...this is, of course, not to mention ANYONE of the Muslim, Pagan, Hindu or Buddhist faiths. I'm not going to place warnings stating that my religious views might be offensive to some readers...I figure if the slash warnings don't scare you away, then the slight amount of religious dreck that I add to some stories won't either. Once again...IF YOU DON'T LIKE SOMETHING YOU READ IN ONE OF MY STORIES...DON'T READ IT! I don't want to hear from you stating that you didn't like the way I wrote something or what I said about something else...this is just criticism. If it was constructive, I could see it...but it's not. And, just so that you know...this story was written 3 years ago and yours was the first religious complaint I have received. If the slash doesn't bother you, might I suggest any of my other stories? At the most, there will just be a passing mention about religion. One other thing I noticed was that you didn't like the dialogue I wrote for Harry about not believing in the Christians' God, but you said absolutely nothing about the fact that Hermione called Harry disgusting and wrong for being gay...because it was against her God's teachings...bit hypocritical..doncha think?
6/25/13 - To anyone who actually reads these things...I HAVE NOT GIVEN UP MY STORIES! I'm finding real life to be a bit of a bitch in regards to writer's block and it isn't allowing me to write anything that I truly wish to post. I am trying, but the words are not flowing well right now. I will never abandon a story, but there may be a little more of a wait until either the writer's block goes away or my muse comes back from wherever she went! Please bear with me!
Just so that everyone knows, I write my stories to suit my tastes, that is what fanfiction is for. I hope I suit other's tastes along the way, but my characterizations are not going to match JKR's. My characters may cry too much, may whine too much or may not even be evil, like they are in the books, but please accept that this is my imagination working here. I enjoy writing these stories and, judging from the responses I get, others enjoy my writing as well. If you don't like the way I've changed a character, I'm sorry, but that's the way it is.
Since I keep forgetting to put this in my stories:
Disclaimer: I own none of the characters, places or names...they all belong to JKR. (unless I make one up, like Rowan, the Romanian Dragon Reserve Director...he's mine)
