Author has written 11 stories for Harry Potter.

Origin of my Profile name: I have an almond wand, and if it were to truly have a magical core, it would most likely be unicorn hair. I have always loved unicorns. :) I'm a native Texan, female, lesbian, dance instructor, college instructor, and my hobbies and interests are wide-ranging. My interest in reading and writing Harry Potter Fan Fiction began summer 2011, after the final film was released. My favorite stories to read feature Harry Potter and Severus Snape, whether they have a romantic relationship, strong friendship, or a mentor/guardian/parental relationship. I have alot of ideas for Snarry (slash) stories, but work keeps me very busy so I don't get to work on my stories as much as I would like. Eventually I want to write some femslash for Xena: Warrior Princess (Xena & Gabrielle), femslash for Harry Potter (Hermione & ???), and friendship/mentor/parental-fic for Harry & Severus. But first I need to finish the many WIPs and plotbunnies in my head for my Snarry fic! Don't worry, I haven't abandoned any of my WIPs!! I'm just very busy with work and life! And it does take me a long time to write because I put a lot of time and effort into each chapter.

March 20, 2015: Last year and this year I've been absolutely swamped (work, wedding, etc)!!! I *have* been working on my WIPs bit by bit. Progress on stories has been rather slow and last year it mainly took the form of voice memos on my phone! LOL. I did receive a tablet for Christmas and that does make it easier to work on stories when I have a few minutes here or there or in bed before I sleep. No, I have *not* abandoned any of my stories, I'm just very busy with work, chores, etc.!

Updates on individual stories:

The Gift. I have ideas for the remainder of the story. It looks like it'll take 1 or 2 more chapters to wrap up this one. I hope to work on it and finish it by the end of the year.

You Are The Half Blood Prince! Updated today! Only the epilogue remains!!!

Bets & Consequences. A new chapter has been written and published today! I think this story will have just one more chapter after that.

Broken Heart Curse. I'm not sure how much longer it will take to get the final chapters done. I *do* know that eventually their feelings will be revealed to each other and heated kisses will be shared, but I haven't decided how much further I will take the story or in what detail. I am thinking about including a "deleted scenes & alternate endings" bonus chapter at the end (I've decided to take the story in a different direction than I previously thought, but not before developing some scenes for the earlier ideas. I hate to just throw it away entirely because there were some nice moments there.)

Don't Leave Me: The next chapter will take place on "Thur morning - afternoon." Much of the chapter will concern the letters that are sent back and forth between Harry & Sev throughout the day. I've got ideas cooking on that, but little has actually been written. The final chapter takes place at the End of the Year Feast, Thur night, and is a nice long chapter and with a HAPPY ending, I promise. :) The final chapter needs some tweaking but is mostly done.

I am contemplating whether to write an epilogue or sequel for this story. Please read "Don't Leave Me" and write a review. In the review please let me know whether you'd like to see an epilogue or sequel, and if so, which one, and also what you hope to see in the epilogue/sequel. (Is just a progression of their relationship during the summer okay or are you really hoping to see what happens during the next school year?)

Astronomy Tower: The sequel ("the way to a man's heart") will be HP's pursuit of SS's friendship and love during the summer. Some fun flirting, frustration, angst, but finally snogging and establishment of a relationship! Also recipes! I've already started work on this, but the beginning needs the most work, so it may be quite some time before I begin posting it. (Besides, I'm anxious to finish up some of my other stories before seriously developing a new one!) To Snarry-lovers who are anxious for hot action, be patient. ;) My SS in this story has a painful backstory (date rape, etc) & a low self image so it's necessary for HP to pursue him slowly and there will be no more than snogging in the sequel. So.. I'm thinking about a 3rd story (working on title) in which their intimacy slowly builds and hopefully finally fulfill all the hopes and dreams of these 2 characters as well as the readers who enjoy Snarry action as much as I do ;) I'll do my best.

I've got at least half a dozen ideas for new stories, but I really want to finish the above in-progress stories before I tackle any sequels or new stories! I have SO many ideas, I wish I had more time to write! *sigh*

Thank you to everyone who's tagged my profile or stories as a favorite or on alert or has reviewed my stories. I can't tell you how much joy it gives me to write and how much joy it gives me to see it be appreciated. I don't always take the time to reply to the reviews (or reply promptly) since my jobs keep me VERY busy, but I enjoy reading each review and they are a beacon of bright light when I have a rough time or am tired or stressed because of work. Thank you!
