Author has written 29 stories for Harry Potter, and Sherlock.

Feel free to follow my fandom/fanfic tumblr - darnedchild.

My goal for 2016 is to update with a new chapter or fic at least once a week (when possible), usually on Friday.

The pseudonym Darnedchild was chosen on the spur of the moment when I first entered the Harry Potter fandom and needed a vaguely anonymous name to go by. Let that be a lesson to you, kids, always take a moment to think things through or you'll end up spending the next decade plus being called something silly due to an old inside joke from your college years.

I want to take this time to publicly thank the ladies who have made my fics readable - Beck, Devsgma, Lariope, and Lilsherlockian1975 - my various attempts at storytelling would be a mess of run on sentences and poor punctuation without them.
