Salutations, My Cherubs.
Thank you for liking my writing enough to want to come all the way to my profile page to learn a few things about me. Please note that in addition to this account I go by Wolfgirl17 on HPFF and by KittenWolf17 on AO3. So anything you see on those sites under those usernames are also me.
I'm so pleased you came all this way just to check me out as an author or to find one my my fics to read. You're such gems. Also, as you might've noticed thanks to my much more frequent updating of late, I'm back on track with things and doing all I can to make sure you get completed fics from me ASAP. For a while there I took something of a hiatus because I was getting a lot of rudeness from people demanding updates on every other fic I've written whilst I was updating a different one. Things got a bit nasty and some of y'all were driving me up the wall, so I took a break. But I'm back now! I've decided bugger the rudeness I was getting, y'all can suck it up because the only way for me to update is to do it when I have a chapter ready to post on whichever fic has been running away with mu imagination, soaking up your love and feeling the pressure for more. Therefore, we're back where we started and you'll be getting updates on whatever I've got ready as soon as it's done. I also know I said I would be good and stop posting new WIPs without finishing the old ones but I just can't resist. Besides, reviews (polite ones with suggestions in them) make me write faster, so I'm also going to begin posting a bunch of the other WIPs I've been stockpiling - the reason my updates seem 'infrequent'. I do promise not to post any new WIPs unless i have more than 50k words pre-written, but as soon as I do, you'll see some new fics popping up from me, even if not all of the old ones are complete yet.
I know it's frustrating having to wait for updates and that I'm terribly prone to distraction that means I tend to wander off mid-fic at times, but I am a slave to my muse. Meaning that if I try to write more on that fic you're all dying to see more of, when my muse is throwing things at me about one of my other WIPs, I either write the other one or I try to solider on and deliver less than stellar product. Keeping so many fics of the same characters straight is also a handfuul and I sometimes have to pause and re-read everything I've done on a particular fic to make sure I'm not writing a secret plot from a hint I dropped in a different fic. This juggling act ain't easy, but I'm doing what I can.
Appearance: Shoulder length mahogany hair, blue-grey eyes, five foot eleven.
Personality: a flip-flopper with the attention span of a badger on meth.
Hogwarts House: Probably a SlytherPuff, if I'm honest, I can be pretty self-serving and cunning at times, but still nice and liable for handing out cookies at inopportune moments. *offers you cookies with a sly smile*

1. Do you take story requests?
Yes, I do. If you have a particular plunny (plot bunny) for a story that you'd love to see written but aren't sure that you could write it yourself, or just want to be able to read the idea rather than going to the effort of writing it, I am always open to ideas. PM me about what the idea/pairing/fandom is and I will let you know if I think I can pull it off. Please note that my best work is done in the HPverse or the ASoIaF universe and that I do not accept requests outside of these fandoms as I don't know them well enough. I am also backlogged on fics currently, so there might be a bit of a wait before i'll be read to take your idea under advisement and begin posting anything.
2. Have you abandoned [insert story name here]?
The answer is always NO. Whether it's not been updated in a month, or not been updated in more than a year, please note that if I have not marked the story as complete, then it is not abandoned and not finished! My lack of updates is likely due to being blocked on that story for ideas and/or unsure where I want it to go next. I also have a real life where I have a job and am studying and have a family to care for. This means sometimes there are more demands on my time than just pumping out chapter after chapter of fan-fiction stories. I will return to your favorite story eventually, so don't be discouraged from reading it. You'll get your ending one day soon.
3. How often do you update?
Honestly, the answer is: when I can. As soon as I have a chapter ready to be published on existing WIPs I post it, excluding those that I have a lot of chapters pre-written and am releasing on a schedule. If I have pre-written stuff I try to update every few days or at least once a week, depending on how life goes and what stage of editing I'm at with each fic. I tried the other route of completing things before sharing with you and it was a spectacular failure, so here we are. When the chappies are ready, you get to sink your fangs into them. Some of the time, when posting new fics, I will have stockpiled several chapters before I begin posting and will stagger the updates by week or by month depending on reader interest and how well I'm keeping ahead of the curve to make sure you don't have to wait forever for more.
4. Will you please update [insert story name here] again soon?
I will definitely get to it eventually. I write fan fiction for the fun of it, and while it's of course wonderful to have readers enjoy the stories, the fact is that I do it for me. I'm probably my own biggest fan and most often I begin a fic because it's what I want to read and because it's what is happening in my head. As much as I try to keep on top of all my fics I do sometimes get more focused on a select few over the others. It's great that you love it. I love it too. I will update it soon, but if I haven't in a bit, it's because my brain is on a different station and I'm not in charge of the remote. Trying to switch it and work on say, that Gendrya fic you love when my head is full of Dramione usually results in crappy work that I end up deleting. I've found it's best to focus on whatever scene won't leave me alone until it's out, otherwise everything else is shoddy writing and neither of us want that.
5. Why do you sometimes argue with reviewers over their comments?
Mostly this happens when an anonymous reviewer posts something rude / off topic to my fic. More than once over the years I've had readers forget that there is actually a living, breathing person with a life and feelings who is sitting behind the words they are enjoying. I give up my time to write these stories because I enjoy them and I like writing. You are entitled to your opinion on a pairing/ship/scene just as much as I am entitled to have written it. No one forces you to read my work, and I'm not interested in your opinions on some vague facts mentioned by me (or sometimes not even mentioned at all) that aren't important to where I'm taking the fic. Like, I've had reviewers complain over their distaste for Sansa Stark in a Gendrya centric fic. It's great that you're a fan, (or not as the case may be) but I honestly don't care that you think she's misunderstood/should be killed/whatever.
If you have some constructive criticism for me, bring it on. If you have praise to spout and updates to beg from me, go for it! I love hearing that.
But, if you want to mouth off about how you think Dramione is a stupid/unrealistic ship whilst reading one of my Dramione fics, then frankly, keep it to yourself. If you don't like a pairing, you shouldn't be reading that pairing in my work. Similarly, if you don't like the "forgive a Slytherin/Rapist/Asshole" stories and I've posted that the main characters are a Slytherin/Gryffindor pairing with Romance as the genre and a summary about those topics, then you're in the wrong story and I don't need your rudeness over your mistake for clicking on my story. I post warnings at the beginnings of all my stories these days to prevent some confusion and surprises, but if you ignore those warnings and read anyway then you have accepted the risks and must deal with the consequences. It's really that simple. I'm only interested in what you have to say if you're offering something of worth. If you're only there to whinge because you don't like a certain type of character bashing or a particular pairing or that Dumbeldore is gay or WHATEVER, that's your dirty undies and no one wants to see.
6. Did you know that this story [insert name here] of yours is similar to this one [insert name here] by [insert author]?
Probably. They are called tropes, and they are the foundations upon which all stories are written. There are a limited number of them in the world. If it's within fan fiction it's most likely that I've read the story you're comparing mine too, or read another similar story you've not mentioned and the idea tickled my fancy. In these kinds of instances it may be a story that is incomplete and unlikely to be finished, or it might just be that I think I can do it better or do it differently. As conceited as that sounds. In every fic I read there are always things I find that I think I might change and play with, and hence fanfiction is born. I am especially fond of 'adopting' tropes that I think have been overplayed in certain aspects and thus become cliched or have simply been poorly written and making them my own by giving them a twist or making their more true to canon or whatever. I like to tinker with things and see what I can tease out with an idea.
Also, on the topic of there being some similarities between my own stories, yes I'm aware of those too. Sometimes it happens. I try to avoid it, but every now and then you might come across a particular sentence you've seen in other fics of mine. You might even come across similar story lines in different fics. Know that while they might begin in similar ways to others of the same trope, they will have vastly different content and will surprise you with how different their endings are. Twists are becoming my new biggest things and sometimes I like to lull you into a false sense of security with plans to blow your world apart in the next chapter *winks slyly*
7. How many stories do you actually have?
I have stopped keeping count. The number of fics I have saved on my computer is currently upwards of 200. Most of them are fanfics but at least 30-40 are Original Ficiton that I will soon be publishing in the Real World where you can all go out and buy them from your local bookshop/online store/amazon. And then y'all can write fanfictions about them for me to peruse well into old age whilst lamenting not having thought of one of your ideas to include myself.
8. Do you take Beta Requests?
Yes I do. However your story must be completed before you ask me to beta it and you must have looked over it yourself with a fine-tooth comb for any mistakes before you send it to me. For further details on this, check out my Beta Profile. I'm very picky about it, and also kind of lazy, so if you're not dedicated, I'm not the girl who is going to hound you for an update. I've got too much of my own stuff going on for that.
9. Why do so many of your Draco/Hermione fics focus on ideas of them being forced into romantic/lustful situations? Don't you think they can be together otherwise?
Of course I think they can. But there are only so many times I want to read something along the lines of them randomly running into each other/working together/Heads together/ any other way to bring enemies together in non dub-con ways. I like to flirt with notions of dub-con and non-con. It helps to make them truer to character if they can still disdain one another but are forced to interact without the call for being nice. I hate writing the 'be nice to each other' scenes until they're desperately in love. It's just about writing preference. And the fun of putting them in awkward positions.
10. Do you write Original Fictions?
Yes. I do. I've currently got one fic in a stage of completion and undergoing edits that I intend to ship off to a publishing company very soon. I also have several others in various stages of completion that I sporadically work on when the fan-fiction world overwhelms or temporarily bores me. I promise I'll post links and let you know just as soon as I get something published.
