Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.

Hello to all you fellow fanfictioners. Just a couple of blanket warnings about my fics:

I write mostly Drarry, so I warn you now, if that's not your thing, please don't read, and keep any homophobia to yourself. I use UK spellings - colour instead of color, centre instead of center, etc. - and UK slang. Oh, and I know that you aren't supposed to put "but" or "and" at the start of sentences. But I do it. And I'm not sorry. Finally, I'm a bit rubbish at updating regularly, so bear with me.

Reviews are massively appreciated, every single one, even if I'm rude and don't reply to them. And even if you don't review I'm still grateful to anyone who takes the time to read my stuff. Thank you!


As well as the fics you'll find listed, I'm the one of the authors of Between the Lines, a WIP that I'm collaborating on with my friend and honourary older sister, FalsettoSlumber (whose other stuff you should read; really, she's awesome). It's a humourous fic that's told in the form of letters. It follows the budding romance of Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy - and, through their son's friendship, Harry and Draco also start a correspondence...

Due to my love of sarcastic remarks, I happily took on the roles of the Malfoys for this fic. It's still in the early stages but it's shaping up to be a very entertaining read :P We're sure (FalsettoSlumber more so than me, but I'm naturally pessimistic) that it will be updated regularly, provided neither of us get bogged down in schoolwork, and that it will mostly just be fluff, but it's possible there will be M rated stuff later. Far stranger things have happened.


Work paused on Bad Faith for the moment. I can't decide whether or not I'm going to keep writing, rewrite and repost it, or just leave it. I'll keep everyone updated since there are people following it!


Update Feb 2014

I am now slowly but surely moving fics across to AO3 and have plans for new fics which will be posted there (hopefully, soon). Especially since I have now become a huge fan of BBC's Sherlock. Yum.

The Innocence of Youth by FalsettoSlumber reviews
Draco Malfoy once had it all. Wealth, family, "friends". But now, he sits alone, in a drunken stupor, with nothing to his name but a stinking hole in a side street of Diagon Alley. When something unexpected turns up at his door, everything changes again.

You would think, after attending a school with such a wise motto, that Harry would have known better than to wake Draco up so unceremoniously. Fluffy one-shot.
