Thought I should update this.

A bit of background: I'm a UK student, studying at Cambridge University. I enjoy rowing, swimming and playing rugby as well as a whole load of other stuff: music, games, films etc.

I've been reading Harry Potter fanfiction for many years now, and still love to find new and enjoyable stories hidden away in the corners of of the fandom. Some of the better ones, mixed with some guilty pleasures, are on my list of favourites.
