Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter, and X-Men: The Movie.

Female, German, 28 years old and studying medieval literature.

What else do you want to know?


Edited versions of my stories and general ramblings about life and art can be found at my livejournal (penname: lioness-kayly).

As the links on these profiles have been less than reliant of late, I have created a livejournal-masterlist of translations, artwork, videos etc. created by other people for my stories. I am humbled and tremendously thankful for all your contributions to these 'verses. If I've missed something, please let me know and I will add it!


When a Lioness Fights: This is a finished story, and no sequels are planned so far (though I might find the energy for a thorough proofreading and mistake-fixing one of these days). But whenever the fancy strikes me, oneshots will be added to the Lioness-verse under the title of "What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Granger". Look out for it, but don't expect regular updates.

Petals on a Wet, Black Bough: My first foray into the fandom of X-Men, via the excellent "First Class"-movie. The story is finished and can be read as a standalone, but my head is playing around with options for a sequel. Who knows…

Had I Known: I am writing again. The next chapter is going to take some time, though.

Stages of Hope: Is being written and planned and moves forward at a slow pace. Don't expect regular updates, though, given the state of my life right now.


IMPORTANT: Quite a few of you have written to me over the last days to both inform me of the policy-changes of this site and to express the worry about my stories being preserved online. Thank you all for that!

Considering this development (and the fact that I've been meaning to edit the "Lioness" for years now), I have decided to put all my stories through a beta-process and update the new and "improved" versions first on my livejournal (http://lioness-kayly.livejournal.com/), where you will also find more about this, and then, once I get an invite, on archiveofourown. This will ensure both the continued accessibility of the stories and download-options for those of you who are interested in that.

I know that a number of wonderful people have been offering to beta-read my stories over the years. I've been incredibly sloppy about that, always meaning to do it and never quite managing. If there are still people out there interested in going over the stories with me (and be it only a few chapters), please give me a shout-out! I'll be happy for any help I can get.

For the rest of you, that means that nothing on this site will change for a while (unless my stories get taken down). You will find edited versions (including, perhaps a few new scenes) of the stories on my livejournal some time in the future, but I will give further notice of that on this profile, so drop in here now and again.

And another request, dearest readers! So many of you have produced artworks and translations of the years, and I've been, again, incredibly sloppy in posting the links. This is, in part, due to several computer crashes that happened and lost me my mails and data. So if you could send me links to your artwork, translations, videos etc., once more, I will post them here and do a master post on livejournal (just as soon as I know how that works...).

So much from me. All the best wishes to you and once again my thanks for being the incredible, intelligent, loving and patient people that you are. It makes me so proud that you like my writing, and that you still stick withe me!

Most sincerely,
