Author has written 13 stories for Harry Potter.

I've been reading fanfiction since 1992, when I was first introduced to it on USENET. I've dabbled in a few fanfic ideas over the year, but now (20 years later) I've finally decided to take the next step and publish something. I have some grandiose ideas about large arc HP fanfic, but who knows if they'll ever come to fruition. In the mean time, I'll be posting whatever manages to come out, which at least for now seems to be all HP stories.

My guest review policy: I don't mind guest reviews, as long as they're respectful and understandable. I know not everyone wants to or can provide a signed review, and that's OK. I just ask that you keep the following in mind:

  1. I write for me, not for you. If a story isn't your cup of tea, that's just fine. If you have something constructive to say (such as suggestions as to what you would like better), feel free. I'll probably ignore you, but if it's not obnoxious I probably won't delete it either. One other thing: if you read 30 chapters of a story and then send a review stating that it sucks or is boring or whatnot, you don't have a whole lot of credibility. If you really didn't like it you would have stopped long before reaching the end...
  2. If you ask a question or make a comment that you would like a response to, oh well. I cannot and will not reply to guest reviews, even if they're well written and thought provoking. If you really want an answer outside the text of the story itself, submit a non-guest review.
  3. If you specifically tell me you're sending a guest review and you specifically tell me you're doing so to prevent me from responding to you, I will delete the review without reading the rest of it.
  4. Telling me all the things you don't like about my story while providing no way to discuss it is non-productive. As much as I'm interested in improving my writing, and I may even agree with you on some things, I'm not going to just change things without a conversation. Submit a non-guest review (or PM) and we'll talk.

Works in progress:

Possession Is Nine-Tenths of the Law - Update 7/26/18: The muse has struck, so I'm actively working on this now. Not sure when it'll be done as it's a bit different from anything I've written before, but I'm hoping it'll keep moving. Currently at almost 20K words, probably going to be somewhere around 30K total.
'Till Death Do Us Part - something that's been bouncing around in my head since before I posted my first fanfic, and has finally solidified into something I can write up. And despite the name, it has nothing to do with marriage (contracts or otherwise) or any parings whatsoever...

Works on the maybe list:

Sheeple - a pseudo-sequel to Dark Lord, Me?, may or may not see the light of day. I wrote a bunch, and then decided it wasn't working, so back to the drawing board...
Harry Potter: A Force To Be Reckoned With (working title) - Full arc redo currently in only notes/outline stage. Not sure where this is going yet or if it will ever happen, but it's far enough along now that I really want to make it happen. Update 7/22/16: At this point, after what happened to make LLTQ explode, I'm not sure if I'll be doing it or not. But it's definitely not dead yet :)

Royal Ward by Catstaff reviews
Based on "Hatal Fart Attack" by Corwalch, "Royal Ward" follows the changes in Harry's life after he gains the personal attention of the Queen. My thanks to Corwalch for permission to write a sequel. Reading "Hatal Fart Attack" first is recommended, but not absolutely required. Please note that this story begins in 1989, shortly before Harry turns 9.
