Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.

I love Harry Potter fanfiction. It's a way for me to spend more time with the characters and in the universe. I've read many great stories so far and I am always on the prowl for the next HPFF gem.

I read pretty much all ships and genres. I've had periods where I was specially interested in one or another, but it fluctuates. I particularly like ships that focus on the development of an unlikely friendship, however.

What grabs me in a story is always penmanship and poetic vision. I prefer epics. I read stories in order to immerse myself in the HP universe again, therefore I like well-written pieces that are strongly evocative and have a great attention to detail. I'm always a bit annoyed at fics that read like a shopping list of all that we'd wish upon our favorite character in terms of talents, power, riches and tools... I prefer fics that explore the human, shimmering, chaotic and poignant aspect of things.

I've listed some of my favorites below, but some of my all-time favs are sadly not posted on FF.net. In particular : ''Secrets'', by Vorabiza, and ''Fate Is A Four Letter Word'', by Philo, both on HP Fandom.net.

My favorite book of canon : HP & The Prisoner of Azkaban.


October '12

After a year of reading and reviewing only, I'm publishing a story for the first time! This will be the second HPFF that I dreamed up, but the first one posted. I'll be delighted to receive all sorts of comments as well as suggestions for betas, should you be interested.

Applied Cultural Anthropology, or by jacobk reviews
... How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Cruciatus. Albus Dumbledore always worried about the parallels between Harry Potter and Tom Riddle. But let's be honest, Harry never really had the drive to be the next dark lord. Of course, things may have turned out quite differently if one of the other muggle-raised Gryffindors wound up in Slytherin instead.
