Hi there!

You can call me Wing:-) I've long been a fan of Harry Potter fanfiction (particularly Dramione) and just finished my first full-length story, "One Year, One Life," which can be found below. It's about a Death Eater Rehabilitation program Hermione starts, with Draco as her first test subject. He lives with her for a year, and they learn more about each other, forgiveness, and life, while also getting into some pretty hilarious hi-jinx along the way. The story is pretty light with a lot of humor, but I try to explore some more serious stuff too. The characters have some conversations that I always thought they would have had, even in the canon world.

I'm a writer by trade - a historian, actually, finishing up my PhD. Writing fiction is a fun, creative outlet for me and gives me a way to not hate writing quite as much as I do when I'm working on my never-ending dissertation.

My next story is going to be a memory-loss fic but with some less traditional twists. It's inspired by trailers for The Vow. When the trailers for that movie came out, I basically went nuts. It just looked like the PERFECT movie. I dreamed up a thousand different scenarios for it and went to see it the night it came out. It was a good movie, but after all of my dreaming, sort of disappointing. So, this story is inspired by the trailers and not the movie itself. I want to draft a few chapters before I post the first one, so it will probably be a little while, but if you liked my first fic, please check back. I have fun things planned!

I also wanted to post a quick note about how I treat reviews. First of all, I obviously love them, as all authors do. When I am actively writing a story, I check the reviews frequently and try to incorporate the feedback I receive into my writing. After I have finished a story and labeled it complete, I still read reviews (and love love love reading new ones and seeing new people find my writing!), but I build off of them somewhat differently. If someone points out a blatant typo or mistake (such as when I had Draco's middle name inconsistent across two chapters), I will go back and fix that small detail. In terms of big picture issues, though, I do not plan to edit the story. The story is finished and I'm moving on, so I'm not re-writing any major parts of it. This does not mean, however, that this feedback is useless. I really like to read it, think about it, and learn from it for my future writing. For instance, one of the reviews I received for "One Year, One Life" commented that my characterization of Hermione got a little weak toward the end. I think this is very valid criticism - I think toward the end I was so focused on the plot and getting every detail right that I let my character development slip a little. This is a point I will keep in mind when writing future stories, but I've decided to leave this one where it is. So, to sum up, I love reviews and I try to learn as much as I can from them, whether I'm writing the story or finished with it. Thanks so much!! :-)

Happy reading!

One Year, One Life reviews
When Draco is forced to live with Hermione Granger for one year as part of a "reintroduction" program after the war, both of their lives get turned upside down. It's up to Hermione to convince the Wizarding World that Draco is not a menace to society... but it's up to Draco to first convince her. Can these two former enemies become friends? Or possibly even more? T, might turn M
