Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter.

Update October 2013: If anyone is wondering, I am still here and still reading. Writing is somewhat on hold unfortunately, as I have been lacking in inspiration, but I do not intend to abandon my works in progress and will eventually finish them once I can do so satisfactorily. Sorry to keep people waiting.


About Me (if for some reason you care):

I am 24 years old, male, and live in the eastern United States. I have a Master's degree in electrical engineering. I am an atheist of Jewish descent, a firm proponent of rational scepticism, and a general cynic for good measure; I oppose supernaturalistic belief in all its forms. Nevertheless, I am a great lover of fiction as long as you don't ask me to believe it.

I created this account primarily for the convenience of using the "favourite stories" feature to collect links, and to write the occasional review. It was not my intention to write stories myself, and I will probably not upload much more than the occasional brief one-shot, if that (I am honestly not much of a writer when it comes to fiction, and am more than willing to admit that).


My current tastes in fanfiction (yes, I'm a bit eclectic):

Harry Potter:

I am actually not a huge fan of the Harry Potter series itself. I enjoyed the books when I was younger and read them less critically, and they have their points; however, by and large the plot has more holes than a hunk of Swiss cheese, almost all of the characters are unpleasant people with no moral compasses (if you don't take the narrative at its word and consider their actions), and they are laced with Christian subtext.

I mainly read Snape/Granger although I can occasionally be persuaded to look at other fics (I find it difficult to stomach other pairings for those two, but can occasionally manage it if the story is good enough otherwise). I also enjoy stories featuring the Dursleys (although there are few good ones), and the Malfoys (although I'm rather picky about these; it's very easy to write the Malfoys in ways I don't like, for instance by making them either too good or too evil, among other things).

I used to be a fan of Snape/Evans, although I no longer find those stories realistic and have stopped reading them (I can't imagine her being interested in him, and frankly I think he can do better; also, I think his feelings for her are a textbook case of limerence and it wouldn't be a healthy relationship).

Oh, and there's "Methods of Rationality". Go read that now if you've somehow been living under a rock and haven't already.

Video Games:

I enjoy the occasional video game fic, although it's extremely frustrating trying to separate the wheat from the chaff; there are so few of any measurable quality. It's difficult to pin down exactly what I look for in these, so the best I can do is to invoke Potter Stewart: "I know it when I see it".

Jane Austen:

Mostly Pride and Prejudice. I haven't found any worthy of favouriting on here, but there are some decent ones elsewhere on the internet.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica:

I am embarrassingly obsessed with this fandom at the moment, I have to say. And "To the Stars" is brilliant.


What I write here:

I am currently only writing Harry Potter fiction, most of which takes the form of "spitefics" or "antifanfiction" - explicating things that irritate me in the source material. I may branch into other types of stories eventually, but that's where things stand at the moment.

"Political Expediency" is a work in progress (though the first chapter was written to stand alone), but it is not my top priority at the moment and I will make no guarantees as to when the next chapter will be posted. It has not, however, been forgotten and I will finish it someday.

I am also toying with the idea of doing a Madoka/HP crossover (probably not how you're imagining), if I can figure out how to make everything fit together that would need to.

Alea Thoron (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1207743/) has asked and been granted permission to translate several of my stories into German. Many thanks to her for doing this. You can find those at the following links:

"A Logic Puzzle": http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9647079/1/A-Logic-Puzzle
"Et Tu, Brute": http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9653035/1/Et-Tu-Brute
"Overdose": http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9659428/1/Overdose

r.triss (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/3250385/ ) has asked and been granted permission to translate "Tabloid Journalism" into Czech. You can find that here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9803909/1/Bulvárn%C3%AD-žurnalistika


Other "published" works by me:

I have written two guides for Diablo II which are hosted at GameFAQs (under the same alias, although I believe I am not the only person on the internet to use it). Sadly, they are of dissertation length.


Contact:

Please feel free to contact me by PM if for some reason you have something to say to me. I welcome story recommendations, and enjoy discussion and/or debate as long as you are grammatical and have something interesting to say.

If you leave a review on one of my stories, I will do my best to reply (especially if you say something that looks like the beginning of an interesting discussion). I do not, however, make any guarantees as to the punctuality of those replies, and I reserve the right not to do so at all if I so choose: fanfiction is for entertainment purposes, and I'd prefer it didn't come with homework deadlines.
