Dear readers and anyone who happens across this page,
Everything here has been deleted as of May 8, 2015. I am saving these stories for my own future reflection, but I will no longer be publishing any of my writing on this site. This is due to several reasons:
1. I no longer have an interest in writing (and to some extent, reading) fan fiction. I don't feel comfortable with the fandom community anymore; in the last few months I have become greatly disenchanted with fandom and celebrity culture. I do not care to continue my past obsession with Harry Potter or The Hunger Games in the form of these stories.
2. I am moving on with my adult life, and writing fan fiction only holds me back from my own projects. My writing has improved significantly in the past few months, being a Creative Writing major at my university. Keeping track of my fan fictions and feeling like I have to keep writing them prevents me from keeping track of my original stories and the novels I hope to publish eventually.
3. I have recognized my own hypocrisy in writing these stories and pretending they were valuable. I originally wrote Meredith as myself, as a sort of wish-fulfillment. I filled in the gaps of my romantic inadequacy by writing her relationship with Neville, who, in these stories, bears a strong resemblance to my high school boyfriend. I no longer wish to dwell on those sentiments.
Those are the reasons I can think of right now. It was fun while it lasted. Please know I am grateful to everyone who read, reviewed, favorited, or followed me and my stories here. If you have any questions, please message me.
Or, as you've known me, Violet
