Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter, and My Little Pony.

Hi, I'm Squirrelloid.

I'm a scientist, a geek, a gamer, and an avid reader. I tend to read history, mythology, fantasy, and some science fiction (emphasis on the science part - I consider soft sci-fi to be fantasy with technology wallpaper - any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic - and judge it accordingly).

I tend to conceive and write sad stories. Major characters will likely die or need to make terrible sacrifices (or both!). Endings are at best ambiguously happy. Stakes should be real for the characters, and there should always be a cost.

I'm currently in the middle of two fanfic projects plus some original fiction.

Saruman of many Devices by Saphroneth reviews
Alone of every power in Middle-Earth, Saruman innovates, notably gunpowder. But he lost. What if he had a little help? Actually a cross-over between LOTR and the General series by David Drake. Uses both book and movie elements.
