"Though our longest sun sets at right declensions and makes but winter arches, it cannot be long before we lie down in darkness, and have our light in ashes..." Sir Thomas Browne, Urn Burial.
--Welcome to the profile of RisingFromTheRuins - writer, reader, poet, and daydreamer--
IMPORTANT: I am being dragged away on holiday by my family, twice, and I shall have no internet or even a computer. Updates will take a long time, and I doubt I will be able to post the new chapter of Six Lightning Scars until the 25th at least.
I love to read, and I love to write. Things I love to read include both fiction, fanfiction, and poetry. Mr favourite fiction is Harry Potter, my favourite fanfiction you can see below in my favourites, and my favourite poetry is by Edgar Allan Poe, especially 'The Raven' and 'A Dream Within A Dream'. My favourite thing to write is fanfiction, particularly Harry Potter fanfiction. With TV shows and movies, I love Sherlock, Doctor Who, and the Avengers.
I come from New Zealand, a country that is just south east of Australia. I'm a girl, the second of four in my family (plus one cat). I'm a daydreamer, and I can get so lost in my own imagination that I don't hear people calling me. I have been called weird, strange, random, and crazy - I am, and I'm proud of it.
Skipping Stones is a oneshot in the childhood of Lily and Severus. It's about the time when they realise they've become friends, and pretty much just some fluff. It's my first story on here, so I'd appreciate it if you gave me some feedback on it.
Six Lightning Scars is an AU story, the first in a series of seven which will chronicle Harry's time at Hogwarts. The basic premise is that Voldemort told Bellatrix about his horcruxes and took her with him to attack the Potters. This small event sets a chain of events in motion, which lead about to one incredibly AU story. More is explained in the actual story.
