Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter, and Temeraire.
"Blue skies, smiling at me
blue skies by Irving Berlin
This is what inspired my username (a nostalgic song from my childhood). Currently feeling Empire by Of Monsters and Men, though.
NOTICE 2/4/16: Links are broken... sorry about taking so long to write things out, lmao. All relevant links for fanart and such exist on my tumblr blog, which is bleubirdsong . tumblr . com! I've revised navigation and created a tag list for ease of reference. Newly added information such as my research and inspiration is now indexed as well, in case anyone was interested in the reading I've done ;D
Ao3 Account (bleubirdsong) same content as FFnet
Tumblr (bleubirdsong) contains extra content: sneak peeks, characterization, discussions w/ beta and readers, random symbolism that I insert that I explain in more detail! also art.
I go by Song.
Fic recs to read while you're waiting for my updates:
1. READ EVERYTHING BY Lightningonthewave (it's HPDM but nevertheless IT IS SO WORTH IT)
There are definitely more but these are the ones off the top of my head! Guaranteed high-quality ;D
I hope you enjoy your stay! Feel free to drop me a PM if you want to chat a bit.
Current Works in Progress:
A giftfic for Christmas for one of my friends. It's currently called The Magicweaver, although I may change that name in the future if I find something more appropriate. So far, the name is just giving me direction and reminding me of certain elements that I have to be sure to emphasize! If you have any suggestions, though, I'm open to hearing them.
Anyway, it features Harry Potter and Tom Riddle growing up at the orphanage together. Harry arrives at the orphanage at the age of five after running away from St. Mungo's, where he was hospitalized after a horrible accident that killed his parents, unwilling to be given away to new "replacement" parents. It's somewhat canon-compliant (but Harry is not the Boy-Who-Lived-to-Travel-Back-in-Time) and is probably slash. So far, it's isolated instances of their shared childhood where they grew closer together and explored their unique talents with the help of a skill that Harry acquired after his accident. I'm planning to definitely go on to Hogwarts years, and I am planning to somewhat include the realities of WW2, as I believe it is something that would have made a very strong impact on Tom's psyche in canon.
sketch of Tom and Harry (located on my tumblr; can be found by looking through my tag list and clicking 'my art' or 'art,' I forget which)
picture of Harry (same as above)
I found a gif which is rather similar to what I imagine magic in this universe to look like! According to my research, it's much like Final Fantasy's Lifestream concept (in looks, anyway). Here's a link! (the gif in question is on my tumblr as my sidebar image!)

Published Word Count as of 02/08/16: 101,468 words
Amount of words of Chapter 18 written (04/23/16): ~6.2k (Alas, RL is an utter bitch and updates will be disgustingly slow for a while).
A Draconic Circumstance
This one is actually a crossover between HP and Temeraire that I started February of 2015, inspired somewhat by Esama's fics over on Ao3.
Voldemort and Harry Potter accidentally get conscripted into another war. Harry Potter is sporting some scales and Voldemort has received the world's most miraculous face-lift and nose-job. It's a recipe for disaster.
Published Word Count: 16,423 words.
Amount of words of Chapter 3 written (04/23/16): 800 words
Probably a rather long oneshot or twoshot. Detailing assassin!Tom and assassin!Harry in a pseudo-friendly rivalry (in everything). Currently in planning stages.
I've long loved MoD!Harry works, so this is a particularly eccentric take on dear old Death and Harry, centering around the strange friendship that they develop as Harry watches the world go by. Currently it is trying to push itself into becoming a longer fic, so this one will be pending for a while.
The Final Returns
A oneshot dedicated to ajazminisaflower, who answered a challenge correctly in The Magicweaver.
It features a Tom who, against his better judgment, leaves to travel the world and learn Dark magic. However, Tom cannot forget Harry as time goes by.
It is a songfic centered around the song I Bet My Life by Imagine Dragons.
Sun and Sky
Another oneshot based off of Wax and Wire by Loch Lomond.
It features desperate measures and unexpected results as Tom tries to bring Harry back.
Oneshot that isn't a songfic, surprise surprise. I was intrigued by the idea of battle lust and wanted to explore how Harry would deal with it...on the Light side and the Dark side. Not my best work, but it was fun to write.
What Are Stars Without a Sky?
Songfic, based off of Boats and Birds - Gregory and the Hawk. Harry has always been the sky to Tom, his star.
A short fic based on what I would imagine living inside a diary to be like. Horcrux Tom and a lot of Alice in Wonderland references.
