Author has written 12 stories for Matrix, and Harry Potter.

I'm twenty-two and British. I've written pretty much exclusively on Harry Potter and like fics that explore the world of the Death Eaters especially, as for me this is where the intrigue lies in the books. I'm a particular shipper of LMSS - or any fic that shows LM in a real battle between his public, sneering self and actual emotions. I'm not generally a fan of HG fics because they tend to be very Mary-Sue-ish, but I have encountered a couple of interesting ones - 'For the Potions Master's Amusement' is a favourite at the moment because it keeps SS remarkably in character whilst revealing a potential hidden side to him.

Haven't written anything for a while - concentrating more on original fiction at the moment - but always keen to read more.

Chapter 9 now up! An unlikely relationship begins when two similar enemies meet again, and a rather odd love triangle is created. LMHG, SSLM, a little HGHP love, anger, betrayal. Lucius at his best, naturally.
