Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter, and Rurouni Kenshin.

Hello! Fancy meeting you here.

Why do I write fanfiction? To put it in simple terms, I write to alleviate stress. That's what it boils down to.

Why do I read fanfiction? For much the same reasons as why I write. I like to focus my energy on something that does not have to do with my higher education and reading is a wonderful outlet.

What do I like?

1. Nontraditional couples. I am often disappointed when authors or series creators develop matches that are too safe, too easy, or expected. Relationships are often between two wildly different people that love each other enough to make compromises. I imagine a few people reading this may understand what I mean from experience.

2. Realistic time frames. I'm not a fan of characters jumping into bed and poppin' out tons of babies at 14. I think that teen pregnancy is an unhealthy concept being presented to young readers on this website regardless of circumstances in the fanfic. I instead enjoy when authors build relationships over long periods of time and develop their character interactions.

What pairings do I like? These are my personal tastes, please don't fight me on them. They are also not in order of preference.

Avatar - Last Airbender: Katara/Zuko

Avatar - Legend of Korra: Korra/Bolin

Harry Potter: Hermione/George (post war), Hermione/Charlie (post war), Hermione/Draco (post war), and Neville/Luna.

Rurouni Kenshin: Kenshin/Kaoru and Sano/Megumi

What about reviews? My undergrad was humanities based and I learned how properly give formal and honest critiques. However, many people on the internet do not respond well to formal critiques, so I am very hesitant to give them. If you are interested in a formal critique, I will work with you in a private message format, just send me a note. (I may take a bit to respond.) I might turn down your request if I am not familiar with the characters, simply because that would not be a fair evaluation. Other than that, I might leave you little love-notes!

Have a nice day,

Albatross

Isolation by Bex-chan reviews
He can't leave the room. Her room. And it's all the Order's fault. Confined to a small space with only the Mudblood for company, something's going to give. Maybe his sanity. Maybe not. "There," she spat. "Now your Blood's filthy too!" DM/HG. PostHBP.

More than the Price of Honor by heza08 reviews
When Prince Zuko captures the Avatar's Waterbender, he knows he can use Katara to lure Aang to his demise. His quest to keep her, though, will give rise to a reluctant hero and set them both on a journey to change the course of destiny.

You by reBeCCa a.k.a. dacrayZblaze1 reviews
One shot. SXM Sanosuke reflecting on his thoughts on Megumi and himself. No plot really, Things do happen though. Read and review. Fluff and perverted thought warning.

A Year for Growth reviews
A short and sweet story in which Kenshin starts a garden, and a family. "The farmer's orphan in him felt somewhat hurt by her comment. He paused for a few moments, unsure of how to respond. 'I was a farmer's son a long time ago. I see nothing shameful in raising one's own food.' "

Worthy reviews
A short about the feast held in Kenshin's honor after he announces his intention to give up wandering. "His idea of what the celebration would be was clearly different than Kaoru's being as half their neighborhood had turned up." Kenshin/Kaoru & slight Sano/Megumi.

Blindly Ambitious reviews
Hermione's research is partially at fault for events following the War. "Everyone glanced over her proudest moment: the discovery of the genetic code for inherited magical traits, and instead launched a verbal battle that took place on all levels of society. "
