Author has written 45 stories for Harry Potter, Greek Mythology, Sherlock Holmes, and Sherlock.
Welcome. Thanks for reading my little corner of the internet. I'm a kinky queer radical white cis lady social worker in NYC. #blacklivesmatter.
I have some experimental writing available for purchase here on Amazon.com: Writings of Clara Sheverlik.
I have a total of, erm, 5 profiles on this site?
There might be a lot of typos in my stories that never get fixed. Oh well. This is a hobby and I actually get paid for some of my other writing, so I relish the times I don't have to take much care with what I write. This is a place for the characters that we love so much to either get a happy ending, or for me to chronicle their process towards getting a happy ending. (Usually via DARK DARK DARK DARK PLACES).
I mostly just write stories about romanticized jerks. E.g. Severus Snape and Sherlock Holmes. Occasionally I will write a commission for a friend featuring different characters.
Lately I've found myself frustrated by the fact that my short stories (okay, they aren't that short, at like 5000 words) don't get much, if any attention. I'm a real reviews wh@r@. So from now on, every time I write something more than 2000 words or so, I'll break it into chapters of 800 or so words and upload them on a schedule. So for example, Where Have All the Flowers Gone is technically a WIP, but I've already written all of it and added calendar alerts to post it every few days.
None of my writing is intended for an audience of people younger than 18. If you are not 18 or older, please do not read any of my fiction.

"Fairytales do not tell children that dragons exist, children know that dragons exist. Fairytales tell children that dragons can be killed." -G. K Chesterton
I am a shadow fairy, facing the sun. / As Eden fell, my mother rose / And birthed me on a shadowy plain. / She was too beautiful to hold me, / And I floated away on a mortal's dream / To a dank place under a stone fountain's rim. / There I have thrived for centuries. / Pearls of black are my ovaries, / And witchly green are my fingers, / But the blooms I bear are violet. / So here I let my hair down, / And share with you the rich, tragic songs of my heart. / Orpheus I am not, but they do say / That I might be a Eurydice.
Hello to you. Thank you for reading my profile and poems and stories. My art on this site is a treasured secret that I do not share with anyone else in my world but you. But I also say to you: there is nothing new under the sun, just the same old things whispered with a slightly different tongue. I know this very well, because I am the captive audience of archetypes and myths. Do not attempt to free me, for I am drinking of the collective unconscious. Consequently, please know that the products here are a result of accumulated knowledge, usurped from thousands of other souls against which my own has brushed. Still, please, please enjoy your visit to my work. Make yourself a home here in the bits of my soul - some silly, some sad, some sober, some sprightly - that I've put up here to share with you. I hope you find something that you think is beautiful. Ours is not to question why, ours is but to do and die - so I post unquestioningly whenever and whatever inspiration dictates. Regularity is for work. Spontaneity is for play. While neither are exclusive to the other, these things do generally have a way of getting separated into spheres.
