Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.

I'm not really a writer, or at least not a fiction writer. I'm decent at technical writing, which is to say I can explain things relatively well to people who aren't experts my own area of expertise.

I actually made an account on the site because I wanted to be able to enter conversation with some of the authors I've enjoyed reading on the site. My involvement may never go beyond that level, though one day I might actually post a story of my own. I really like my job doing computer programming, but it doesn't push me to creativity in any fictional arena.

I might also be willing to do some proofreading, but it would have to be with an author whose writing I enjoyed and with whose inspirational setting I was familiar.

One World by Stellar Magic reviews
In J.K. Rowling's first draft it wasn't Hagrid that found Harry Potter in Godric's Hollow, but a lowly dentist named Granger. What if he had?

LittleBro!Harry, BigSis!Hermione. Not a HP/HG Ship. Canon Pairings.

Sly, cunning, street-smart, sorted into Slytherin where his housemates have been raised to hate him, will Harry survive? Or maybe it's the House of Snakes that doesn't stand a chance.

Voldemort is still at large, and the Ministry is still inept. His brother's got a godson now though, so it's only natural for Regulus to keep an eye on young Harry as well.
