Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.

hello, I am a human being who is definitely not a sentient ant colony.

please be patient with updates, our ants are lazy and don't like the new keyboard I am a single-brained human and I habitually overestimate how productive I am.

The Universe Is An Optimisation Problem is a weird pre-apocalyptic reimagining of HPMOR in a cassette futurist world with parallel universes, megacorporations, high magic, and AI. It will probably be about a million words long, by the time I'm finished with it.

It updates every two Wednesdays, but sometimes on Fridays and sometimes I realise I need to do more planning so I stop for three weeks and do that instead.

I try to write well. If I'm not writing well (typos, continuity errors, mistakes in general, problems with the plot, prose or dialogue, something that makes you cringe) then please tell me and I will do something about it.

(I haven't updated in a while but I plan to - it's not dead, I'm just working on a Worm fanfic!)

good, the singular pronouns probably threw them off the scent

Harry Potter and the Prince of Slytherin by The Sinister Man reviews
Harry Potter was Sorted into Slytherin after a crappy childhood. His brother Jim is believed to be the BWL. Think you know this story? Think again. Year Three (Harry Potter and the Death Eater Menace) starts on 9/1/16. NO romantic pairings prior to Fourth Year. Basically good Dumbledore and Weasleys. Limited bashing (mainly of James).

Potter Ever After by Kevin3 reviews
Between marriage contracts, soul bonds, angry fathers, wandering eyes, backstabbing women, and defiant house elves, Harry has a feeling that 'True Love' isn't in the cards for him in this story. Which is just fine by him, as it turns out. A depressing walkthrough of the current state of HP Fanfiction.

The mantle of Santa Claus has been passed down once again, this time to an industrial engineer who starts to get some dangerous ideas in his head about the true meaning of Christmas. This fic is still being worked on. I finished it with Christmas (2013) as my deadline, but the story suffered for it, so even though it's complete there will probably be a reworking of it later.
