Author has written 14 stories for Harry Potter.
At Any Moment is now complete in two parts. I never quite thought I'd ever get it to this stage, particularly during a horror 18 months when the words just simply vanished. This was my first attempt at writing in first person, and it is at present undergoing a HUGE re-write and corrections made to it along the way. After five years, this was quite possibly the most insane thing I've ever tried to do, but the relief and satisfaction at having stuck to it, outweighs the anguish this story has caused over its life cycle.
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to leave me reviews and critique along the way. Given that the story is a little more unusual, I doubt I would have had the inclination to continue posting into a silent vacuum without your support and encouragement.
There are two epilogues to follow (at some stage). One is a continuation of the last chapter...into the future, as well as a thorough re-writing of Remembrance to include all the things I couldn't add to it initially, for fear of letting the story out of the bag.
I have posted a series of clues to the poem found in the first part of the story - with answers - at my Live Journal. I've been a bit cagey about some things as they pertain to elements in the second part of the story. You can find the post at...
Comments and questions are most welcome and I will answer what I can. :D
At Any Moment is also archived at Ashwinder (part of the Sycophant Hex Archives) as Ozratbag2, and Fiction Alley as Aurinia. These two versions are far more proofed than the version that appears here at FF.Net. There is also a final chapter ONLY posted to Ashwinder as it's (cough) rather spicy. ;)
1st May, 2005 - I've removed the FILK - The Potion Master's Song - because it is unclear from the new T.O.S if it constitutes a breach of those rules. You can find the story listed at Ashwinder, an archive within the Sycophant Hex family of archives. :)
The artwork for the avatar was done by the very talented, Averygoodun. My favourite scene from At Any Moment. :)
June 10th 2016: I haven't been around and I am unlikely to finish any of my stories any time soon. I want to, but between work and a significant amount of ongoing pain, I am realistic enough to call time out for the next little while. In my chosen career I have hurt myself not once but twice (over-achiever much?) and it's been ongoing for the last couple of years, but most prominently in the last 11 months. I have to have surgery at some point in the not too distant future on my right knee, and I'm in the process of having seen an Orthopod twice in the last few months, lost my temper more than twice and been generally a complete shit to be around. If I had the choice I wouldn't be around me either, but that is, unfortunately, not an option.
So, if I find something to read when I should be working or sleeping, then I shall review, but I don't know when I'll be laid low in hospital on the other side of the bed so the speak. I've dabbled at Secret Life of SS, and HaC, but it was tripe born of the desire to finish them, but the unfortunate effect of too much codeine and too little sleep.
