Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.

We stumble and fall constantly even if we are most enlightened, but when we are in true darkness, we don't even realise we've fallen.

BIO

I like the contrasts and opposites of life. So, for me carpentry can be just as interesting as the study of epigenetic changes, never mind that one of them is physical and the other rather intellectually challenging.

I also write original fiction and occasionally venture to other fictional universes. One of my original stories can be found here: https://www.fictionpress.com/s/3095323/1/Three-in-One

And my only work based on the "Hunger Games" universe can be found here: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10874869/1/Dire-Hope

MY STORIES

The Darkness in My Veins

This is a chronicle type of story about the Noble and Most Ancient House of Blacks, which follows the life of Cygnus Black the Third, who became father to Bellatrix, Andromeda, and Narcissa.

Dinky Aurors

This is a story about Harry's 6th year at Hogwarts, in which he meets a girl named Fay Dunbar. Fay aspires to be an Auror, just like he does, and provided that none of his friends takes his suspicions about Draco Malfoy seriously, Harry gingerly turns to Fay, thus opening a door to a new friendship. Dinky Aurors is definitely meant to be a more of a light-hearted story.

Drowning Souls

This is a story about a perfect friendship...that comes with a catch. Meant to be a psychological novel based on Harry Potter. (On hiatus)

Solace in Shadows by The Fictionist reviews
When Harry is kidnapped by a seemingly sixteen year old Tom Riddle at the end of his second year, he's convinced that he would do absolutely anything to escape – but "anything" can be a dangerous conviction to have, and even heroes can grow tired of fighting without hope.

Misconceptions by the melon lord 2.0 reviews
AU. His contribution to the rebellion was supposed to secrets and slander. Haymitch decided taking on a wife would be more appropriate. She wanted to forget the Games ever happened. Then she's told of a fiance who'll never allow her to do so. And he isn't Peeta and she isn't Annie, and surely that means everything. Just maybe not quite in the way they'd thought.
