Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter, Fairy Tales, and Elder Scroll series.

Call me Ink, for short.

I'm a former college student who majored in English lit, now graduated and out in the grown-up world. In the past few years, I've grown into a strange fondness for science fiction audio dramas, found a new interest in computer programming languages, picked up knitting, and discovered that I cannot even successfully cohabitate with a cat, let alone another human. I believe in beautiful things. I enjoy walking, dancing, and climbing things I shouldn't in the rain, and I appreciate the unique silence that only exists when the rest of the world has gone to bed.

Feel free to contact or PM me; I try to answer all of my reviews as well.

Update (6/12/17): So a lot has happened since I last updated this profile, in my personal as well as my professional life. I'm out of school, I went through my first major break-up, I moved about 500 miles and got a real adult job, etc. All of this has affected my writing in a variety of ways, mostly by sapping the life out of me to the point where I just didn't have the time or energy to devote to writing.

I also, since my second year of college, have been dealing with increasingly disruptive anxiety issues, which also played into my avoidance of my writing. As I studied for my degree, read more writing, did more writing, critiqued more writing, it became clear to me that True Chosen is...well, certainly no longer an expression of my best work. For a long time, I didn't want to look at it, let alone slog through to finish it. I didn't have the energy to invest in cleaning it up, and it felt odd to continue writing a story that started as a high school pastime, when I am no longer the person I was in high school. However, for those faithful few who have followed True Chosen for so long (I started it six years ago, after all), and who have written PMs and Reviews begging for an update, I wanted to give some sort of closure.

Recently, I have had a little voice appear in the back of my mind, telling me I should try to finish the story. I've had an ending to True Chosen planned out since I started it in high school, but the path from point A to that ending point was not at all mapped out, and I'm not sure anymore whether the original ending really fits. However, despite not knowing how the story is going to end, I'm still feeling the sudden urge to finish it. Maybe I feel like I owe it to my readers to finish a story for once in my life. Maybe I feel like it's easier to work on now that I'm not so invested in it, because as a writer I've moved on. Maybe I feel like finishing this story would be a big, fat "f* you" to the anxiety issues that have been unpleasantly overshadowing my life for the last few years. Whatever it is, I feel like this story needs to get some sort of closure. I can't say for certain when the next update will be out or when the story will be finished, but by God, I will make sure it gets finished.

Peace.

Harry Potter and the Accidental Horcrux by the Imaginizer reviews
In which Harry Potter learns that friends can be made in the unlikeliest places...even in your own head. Alone and unwanted, eight-year-old Harry finds solace and purpose in a conscious piece of Tom Riddle's soul, unaware of the price he would pay for befriending the dark lord. But perhaps in the end it would all be worth it...because he'd never be alone again.
