Things I Live By:
Fandom: Harry Potter. I do love Mortal Engines, The Hunger Games and Wilbur Smith and various autobiographies too, but Harry Potter will be my one true love. I have no care for Twilight.
House: Gryffindor. I always thought I was Slytherin when I was younger, but I've changed how I look at myself and can see why I am in Gryffindor. It isn't because it's the 'cool' house, or because the Trio were in it, I just have my own reasons.
Pottermore Name: SkullCentaur75 - I don't use it much at the moment, I'm waiting for it to come out it's bloody beta!
Ship: Charlie/Hermione. I love how we don't know a lot about Charlie from the books (in comparison to the rest of the Weasleys), so I've built a persona around him that I think would come from a loving family, a decision to move away from home at a young age, and the determination he gets from being a dragon handler.
Can also include: Bill/Hermione, Fred/Hermione, George/Hermione, Sirius/Remus, James Potter/Sirius, Albus Severus/Scorpius, Harry/Draco, Sirius/Hermione, Draco/Charlie. I'll read practically any ship, but I avoid Ron. I love him in the books and films, but I have to make one character into the bad guy.
Rating: All M rated around here. I only write M rated, and rarely read anything other than M rated.
Who Knows I Write Fic: Not a soul. I haven't told anyone face-to-face, but I'm not going to hide from the internet. It's a personal thing that I write and the internet just happens to be the easiest place to share it.
Favourite fics by other authors:
Favourite fics that I wrote myself:
Fics I have beta'd:
Writing Style: Just how it comes out of my mouth. I don't use a beta (but I'm up for a collab anytime!) so I check it all myself. Mostly I don't plan in any way/shape/form, fics just come from dreams I have (Runes and Ruins was a dream where I fell into the water like Charlie does) and things I see when sat in my University Union.
Beta: I'm open to suggestions, and if anyone wants me to beta work I'll be happy to do so!
Extra Shit: Hermione seems to be my wizarding world bicycle…
Fics in progress: Nothing at the moment. Just reading all the hours God sends, and then some!
Wedsnesday 21st March: I genuinely just spent about half an hour of my life thinking over the technicalities of a Charlie Weasley/Oliver Wood/Victor Krum threesome. I came to the conclusion that it would be really angry and quidditch oriented. I sometimes worry about my emotional state, but it could make a decent one-shot.
Sunday 5th April: This probably won't affect it in any way, but this is the last day I'm giving to writing fic. My exams are in seven weeks, and I need to start working for them. I've written 22,000 words for Hurt From The Past, which if I keep to the weekly updates shouldn't affect it too much as I'm on chapter 11. I'm only putting this out there as a bit of a warning in case I do slip up.
Monday 6th April: Ok, so I'm mid way through writing a transport politics report for Uni and I get a really sexy Drarry plot bunny I just need to write. This is not good. I'll make some notes and put it up eventually.
Sunday 22nd April: Harry/Draco/Charlie Weasley threesome. That is all. I also didn't write down my Drarry plot bunny that I thought of a couple of weeks ago. Bugger.
Thursday 26th April: MY AO3 REQUEST WAS ACCEPTED!! Damn that it had to come through when I need to revise, but when my exams are over in a couple of weeks I'm all over it.
Monday 14th May: Reading too much Drarry I think I may drown in it all. I've run the battery down every day for the past 6 weeks down to nothing every day. On top of working and revising. I've even started taking my iPad to work and reading there too. I read 'Underwater Light' by Maya and I didn't really see what all the fuss was about. Reparations/Foundations is much much MUCH better. I also started 'Dragon Tamer' and despite it being very funny, it is incredibly juvenile it parts and it irritated me to no end. I will have to give it another go though. My other Drarry staples (Well, 'Turn') is waiting for the moment.
Sunday 20th May: FINISHED WRITING HURT FROM THE PAST! Whatever I write next WILL be smutty. So smutty it'd make you go blind.
Tuesday 21st August: Plot bunny for sequel to There Was just popped up. Planning will ensue, but I don't know if it'll be publishable.
Tuesday 11th December: I've been writing, just not fanfic. I'll come up with something after exams. I have them in 4 weeks or so, and doubtless I'll get a plot bunny as soon as I need to revise for them!
Tuesday 26th Feb: NEW FIC NEW FIC NEW FIC!!!
