Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.

I would like to start off by saying that I am a very unreliable author. I have these unpredictable urges where I feel like I have to start reading fanfiction. After I begin reading a few stories, I then get an urge that I must start updating my own stories. Sometimes, I will update them, but usually they are just left abondoned. Unfortunately, I cannot give you a satisfying reason for why this is, except that I do plan on finishing my two stories ... someday. Some of my old reviewers will know that I use to have three stories, however I decided to remove "Could We Ever Be More Than Just Friends?" due to the fact that JK paired up Hermione & Ron and Ginny & Harry instead of putting Hermione and Harry together. My stories have always followed the general base that JK set, and I am not going to change that moral of mine just because two characters did not get together that I wanted. And, since reading HBP I have decided that I actually find the idea of Ginny and Harry together absolutely beautiful. I guess you grow and you learn and your opinions just change.

I have been introduced to this site since the summer of 2003. For a year (give or take), I was completely addicted to this site. I read and reviewed many fanfics and I eventually created my own. Since then, I tend to havelost interest (as I have mentioned previously) and come back occasionally to review stories that I use to love and check on authors that I use to adore and admire. Now, it is sad to see that a lot of the stories I use to review are no longer updated and that their creaters, like me, have lost interest. And it is really sad to see when brilliant, and I mean brilliant, stories are rushed (making them turn sour) or forgotten.

Anyways, I only write and read Harry Potter fics. And I will present to you some general information about myself and my fanfics:

Serendipity

I started writing this fic with the general idea and inspiration from the movie Serendipity. I plan on rewriting it someday so that it is more mature since when I started writing it I was 13 years of age, and then I will repost it. For now, it is about half-way done and I hope to finish it sometime within the year. It is an okay fic, I am proud of it most of the time. However,most people seem to like it, which is fabulous. It is about Lily and James and I am sure that you are perfectly able to read the summary which gives a pretty good idea of what the story is about.

The Untouchable

I don't know how the idea of this story came to me to be honest.I was on a plane ride to upperstate New York in August of 2003 and I just thought of the entire concept. I formulated my thoughts for about a month, and then I started writing the first chapter and posted it in September. It became a hit, and I would recognize it as my best fic. I feel terrible that I have not updated it in a year, but I plan on finishing it within a year. It is a more dramatic, dark, and humorous fic about Lily and James. And, of course, completely unrealistic. This one attracted a lot of reviewers, and I am very pleased with it.

Other fanfics in the future?

Once I complete "Serendipity" and "The Untouchable" then I will begin to write other fanfics. I want to write another Lily and James since they are my favorite characters because of their mysterious path, but I also want to write a Ginny and Harry story. You can probably expect those inmid-2006, but no promises.
