Hi to all fanfiction readers and writers out there.
I thought it was about time I updated my profile, so here we go;
I am a woman living in the UK, and according to some people to old to be reading (and occasionally writing) fanfiction.
I am very busy outside of the fanfiction world with real life, work, running a house, volunteer groups for Rainbows, Brownies and Guides so unfortunately I do not have a lot of time to update or publish.
About my stories
I now focus solely on one shots that may occasionally lead to sequel one shots. My multi chapter story I'm sad to say is abandoned; I started writing that many many years ago with the hope of coming back to it. Unfortunately inspiration has not struck. I have read through the story and can see how much there is to improve on for this story. Maybe someday in the future, but at the moment I have too much going on in real life, and Covid-19 pandemic means work is harder as I am now working from home.
My stories are cross posted onto Archive of Our Own under the name bluebell_uk
The Proposal is a one shot that is definitely able to be extended into a sequel, I do not have one planned yet but if you fancy a go let me know. All I ask if you do is that you mention my story as the prequel, you send me a link so I can read yours and that you keep it a Harmony (Harry/Hermione) story.
My Fandoms and thoughts
Harry Potter is what brought me to the sometimes wonderful world of fanfiction. I guess it was because my favourite pairing of Harry and Hermione did not happen in the books and it gave me a way to see this wish fulfilled. The text below is just my personal feeling, please do not attack me over this, you can have you pairings, I'll have mine and we can coexist in this fanfiction world.
Hermione/Ron also known as Romione
Looking back on the series I can see Hermione and Ron as a short term 'let's see where this goes' relationship however this is mainly based on we do not know how all of their time was spent. The books follow Harry's life and there are times when he is not around either Hermione or Ron so we do not know what happened in these times. Yes Ron did occasionally make Hermione smile, but more often than not we are shown them arguing and shouting, sometimes reducing each other to tears.
I can not wrap my head around how JK Rowling thought these to characters would be the best possible match for each other out of all the muggle and magical population. Especially in a series where the main female character was already quite mature for her age and all of the primary and most of the secondary characters had to grow up fast because of the situations they found themselves in year after year.
Rowling has said in an interview that looking back she agrees "I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfilment" she later goes on to say "It was a young relationship, I think the attraction itself is plausible but the combative side of it... I'm not sure you could have got over that in an adult relationship, there was too much fundamental incompatibility" Rowling does go on to say that they might be OK following some marriage counselling, but from what we got to know of Ron's character in the books he does not come across as someone willing to put in the work this would require.
Harry/Ginny also known as Hinny
I think a lot of my negative feelings on this pairing is because we do not get to know a lot about her character For a good portion of the series she is primarily a background character relegated to Ron's shy younger sister - who must have had her own journey as we saw she did grow in confidence. Unfortunately as there was hardly any interaction with Harry / his friends shown in the series we did not get to see this. I also found it very strange that Ginny remained in the background until BAM Harry has a monster in his chest when he see's her with Dean? Correct me if I'm wrong but surely if you love someone you would want them to be happy, and since when is love a monster?
I will admit when I first read this it did make me wonder if Ginny was following in her mother's footsteps. We know from Prisoner of Azkaban chapter 5 that Molly did brew a love potion whilst still at school; and lets be honest Ginny wouldn't be the first to brew a potion above their level.
Side note: Looking into things further you can also wonder if Harry was set up to meet the Weasley family. Why did Hagrid not mention how to get onto the train, he knew Harry had no idea of the magical world. Why were the Weasley family on the muggle side of the platform. Surely there must have been another entrance those from Pureblooded / Half Blooded / families that already had one parent attend Hogwarts knew about such as a floo or apparition point. We are introduced later in the series to both floo travel and side along apparition. I really can't see the Malfoy family putting up with having to walk through such a crowded muggle space (even if the parents could shrink trunks etc. before leaving home). So why was Molly speaking loud enough to attract attention about a place being 'packed with muggles' when she knows very well about the Statute of Secrecy, has attended 7 years of schooling herself at Hogwarts which means at least 14 trips or more if she chose to return to her family during the holidays. As well as the years of sending her own children from Bill down to Fred and George (remember this was Ron's first year) to and from school.
Harry/Hermione also known as Harmony
As mentioned above this is my favourite pairing between the main / core group of characters. Although like many their friendship had its rough points they never devolved into shouting / possible name calling. Instead they had similar backgrounds and attitudes and built from a steady foundation. In the earlier books we see a Harry that is interested in his magical text books - his beloved owl's name was from his History of Magic text book. He would study well into the night - partly because he had to so the Dursleys would not see. Both we are lead to believe had a lonely childhood and were bullied and estranged from their classmates.
We see many instances of Harry and Hermione's friendship, worry, support, respect and yes love for each other throughout the book series and that extra tent dancing scene in the movie (which Rowling has said fitted nicely with what she was feeling at that point as well).

I like Ianto and his relationship with Jack, I have nothing against homosexual relationships, love is love, no matter what sex, race or religion you are from. I just think and always have that there is something, some kind of chemistry between Jack and Gwen. I don't know what it is, but after Children of the Earth and Miracle Day I am more convinced of this, just think if Jack gave blood to Gwen...hmm might have to look into that later.
Arrow (TV show)
Arrow is one of those rare times when I fully agree with the ending relationships. I have been an Olicity (Oliver/Felicity) fan since we were first introduced to the characters. I could never see the Oliver/Laurel relationship rekindling. Yes it was Sarah's decision to join Oliver on the Queen's Gambit but in my opinion once someone has cheated on you that's it. If they can't respect you, the relationship and themselves enough not to cheat (with his girlfriend's sister no less) then they can pack up and leave. This can also be said for the Sarah/Oliver relationship, they cheated with each other on Laurel, and I really prefer Sarah with Nyssa.
Favourite Characters (no particular order)
Harry Potter - Harry, Hermione, Sirius, Dobby, Draco, McGonagall, Hagrid
Torchwood - Jack, Gwen, Toshiko (wish they could bring her back)
Arrow - Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen, John Diggle, Slade Wilson

CONSTRUCTIVE notes are gladly accepted however flames are printed out and used to light my coal fire, as that is all they are good for. Please do not take this to mean you can flame me I have enough fuel for the fire and do not need anymore.
