Author has written 17 stories for Harry Potter.
Hello, welcome to my profile. What's to know?
I am a middle-aged, married, professional woman with grown-up children. I was late to Harry Potter in time (I only started to read them when HBP came out).
I’ve always been a fan of fantasy, in particular, magic and dragons. I also love Terry Pratchett's Discworld – a superb parody of fantasy (although ultimately self-defeating as it is also superb fantasy in its own right).
Like you all, I’ve read the HP books many times and always have questions or issues or see something new. I might suddenly look at a character anew or really notice one properly for the first time. Reading some of your fanfiction often makes me look at a character in a new light. This is, as we all know, partly because, as children’s fiction, much is sketched rather than detailed, but also because the books are Harry-centric. As told from his narrative point of view, JKR has engaged us in some interesting narrative misdirection.
I am constantly amazed by the quality of some of the stories on this site. I have read some stories of astonishing quality and creativity.
I read most types of story (if they're well written) but I don't like character-bashing or heavy sarcasm. JKR gave us multi-faceted characters and they all have their light and shade.
I don’t read stories with teachers paired with students at all, or sexual squicks. That said, I once said I loathe mpreg, but then wrote one for a crack!fic challenge. Oh well.
Thank you for reading and, if I’ve put you in my favourites, thank you for writing.
