Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter universe. (Duh, like why else would I write in it...) I think the books are better than the movies.
I became intrigued by the character of Severus Snape as soon as I realized that he was not after the Stone at the end of the first book. (Protecting any student, especially one you disapprove of in principle, is a noble act. Especially if you make yourself /more/unpopular in the process.)
I am well aware that J. K. Rowling wrote him to be a terrible person, based in part on her own insufferable git of an actual teacher... That teacher probably had redeeming qualities too.
Potions is a difficult subject. Sort of a cross between chemistry and cooking. (And mixing ceramic glazes) I imagine the consequences of accidents or goofing off could be terrible. Strict discipline is one way to prevent mishaps.
Then again, maybe I just have this thing for teachers...
It is a good thing that I can stare and fantasize while taking notes... Sigh.
If I ever finish Inverted Enemy, I will most likely do a few Draco/Ginny stories, since that is what I have been reading.
The West End of Reasonable may never be updated, only time will tell.
