Author has written 12 stories for Harry Potter.

I'm a poor little librarian with no imagination of my own - hence I 'borrow', for just a wee moment, others' brilliant creations to see what would happen if... I really hope any author whose characters and worlds I have trespassed upon take it in the spirit of the homage it is offered, and don't sue. About me ... um, I'm pretty dull! How about reviewing my stories so I can prove it to you in person?

Quick note: Massive apologies for all the story alerts on After the Battle. I'm just doing a tidy-up on the story (anal-retentive here, and some of the formatting somehow got lost years after I uploaded things). It's just to make it nicer for people to read in the future. Nothing will change that much in the edits, and the story is now complete and finished (and absolutely unrepentantly AU). Many thanks for the response the final chapter got, so many years after it should have been written - 121 readers in ten hours has given me a large sappy grin that my husband is a little worried about...
