Author has written 7 stories for Diablo, and Harry Potter.


For my Diablo peoples; I have deleted Life, Death, Angels and Demons a.k.a. LDAD. I saw it as rather clumsily written and embarrassing compared to the rest of my stories. It was so awful, and it started getting painful to read it, so I've taken it down.


I have posted a new story entitled 'Not so Nearly Headless' featuring Nearly Headless Nick, the Bloody Baron, the Grey Lady and the Headless Hunt. It's short, only 1200 words, but it fixes a plot-hole that has bugged me since I read HPatCoS for the first time when I was a child. Free recipe if anyone can find the Outlander reference. Reviews would be lovely, as always. Can I get someone to review TFW as well? It's my only story without reviews and it's kind of lonely, just sitting there in the cold like that.


I posted my Seamione story 'An Irish Protector' yesterday, and OHMIGOD!!! Y'all loved it, evidently, 221 views in two days, four people Favorited the story: kaykay25, Wonderlandr, KyuubiNoPuma and Silver Winged Maiden (love your name, btw). Kaykay25 also story alerted it. Y'all may wonder why I'm gushing over this, but I normally write for Diablo II, and that's one little-bitty-teensy-tiny-super-small section compared to the Harry Potter section of the site. I'm used to getting one or two views a day, and y'all have blown my mind. Only thing left is if some of y'all review, that would make my week.


I have just uploaded a story for those that enjoy the Weasley twins paired with the Patil twins, entitled Twin-Speak. It's very short, about 500 words, but it's fluff so what do you expect? DiRe is coming along slowly, LDAD is not moving at all, and I have a little more time to work with my stories now that it's Thanksgiving break. LDAD is not up for adoption, never has been and never will be. I've a Seamione (Seamus X Hermione) in the works, and a Cedrimione as well, so I'm well stocked on plot bunnies. I need reviews people, I'm tired of getting mad at people when they update. I never see more than one or two emails from FFN in a day, so I'm always like "Is it an update or is it a review? It's an update. CRAP!!!" Review please!


I am in the process of editing DiRe for what my amazing English teacher calls 'tip mistakes'. So, nobody freak out if half the chapters are formatted correctly and the other half aren't.

I am in the second half of my education, meaning I have zero time to do anything. Thanksgiving is coming up soon, and I intend to work on my stories a little more then.

I have over 500 views on DiRe! WHY CAN'T SOME OF YOU REVIEW?! PLEEEEAAAAASE!!! I will give you your choice of a cheesecake recipe, M'n'M cookie recipe, cinnamon roll cake recipe or cinnamon roll pancake recipe!



I am finding myself having to remind everyone that my works can be slightly violent and are not for some people. I refuse to rewrite the jail scene in DiRe chapter one, or Andariel's scene in the second chapter, simply because some people are too immature to handle fight scenes. Andariel's brassiere does not come off for anything of a sexual nature; Blood Raven's exploding arrow snaps the chain holding it together and it falls off in battle.

DiRe IS RATED 'T' FOR A REASON! MATURE TEENS AND OLDER SHOULD BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT! I do not wish to up the rating to 'M' simply to weed out people that can't handle mild violence. I get few enough people that read my stories in the first place, I don't want to reduce that number even further by upping the rating!


For those few of you that do read my stories, thank you. I appreciate you all.


Just a little drabble I wrote about writing, in response to Ms. Beatrix Potter's quote "There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you."

When a writer writes a story, the finished product is never what they intended it to be. I'm not talking grammatical errors and spelling. The story moves on its own, it does what it wants to do. The story will twist the plot when the author had intended for it to turn. Stories have partners in crime too, rebellious little plot-bunnies that infect the writer's mind right before they have something important to do. The author usually has little choice but to subtly jot down notes on a napkin, or some other surface, and dream the entire day, until the moment they go home, open up an Ideas page, and start fleshing out the plot. The story itself finally makes an appearance, and everything else is forgotten. The story has been born and the author is set for a long roller-coaster ride, until that one satisfying moment. When the last few words have been written, and the last drops of ink are running out of your pen as you finish the last punctuation mark. The story has been finished. You go back and read it and reminisce on what almost happened. We writers have a word for those almost-happeneds, those deleted scenes. We call them Omakes. O-mah-kiis. And they are beautiful.

I've been reading more than writing lately, and I've got a few new ideas, two of which being a Cedrimione (Cedric Diggory, and Hermione Granger), and the other a Dramione (Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger). I seem to be pairing Hermione and Luna with any available Hogwarts male at the moment. Including Snape and Voldemort, excluding Dumbledore.

Did I mention I am rather desperate for reviews?


LDAD is still on hiatus and DiRe is on its fifth chapter. I need a better title for DiRe, so will someone please suggest one? I do have an unofficial beta now, and I'd like to thank him for being awesome, otherwise I would have completely left out the horadric staff in Act II. I've got a new one-shot on the way, it's 98 percent finished and I enjoyed writing it. Its title is A Frozen Wasteland, featuring Blaise, Daphne and Vincent. Unfortunately, I'm starting my new school in less than a month so I will probably have little time to write at all for the next ten months. Sorry guys.


LDAD is on hiatus indefinitely; Aerin, my muse, has told me that I am to finish DiRe before even attempting to rewrite that so it's nowhere near as bad. It is not up for adoption however.


-sigh- I have started to drastically rewrite most of LDAD because my muse beat it into my head that the way I did it was crappy and so...I shall continue to work at it until my muse deems it good enough and long enough to publish. I am also rewriting what little I have of Diablo; Rewritten. Does anyone have any suggestions as to names for the story? I am fully aware that the current title is very crappy and it needs a better one soon!

Why did you choose this pen name?

I chose this because I like older books by authors none of my friends have heard of. Tarnishing is when a metal changes color from exposure to oxygen. Libris is the Latin word for books. Tarnished books makes me think of forbidden knowledge a.k.a Magic, which makes me think of sorceresses, which makes me think of Diablo II, Bard's Tale and Dungeons & Dragons.
