Author has written 24 stories for Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, Fire Emblem, Animorphs, and Twilight.
Uni's currently nearing crunch time, so I'm going to be fairly busy for a while. However, I'll be updating Mistaken Damsel, which has clocked in at twelve chapters, weekly, and am currently finishing off a few one-shots and a challenge fic from a few months ago (oops).
Because of how hectic things are right now, I don't have the time to take on more regular beta projects. However, if you have something short that you'd like me to beta, feel free to check out my beta profile and PM me.
I'm not really sure how to describe myself, because I'm in that stage where 'girl' seems a bit too young, 'woman' seems much too mature, and 'young woman/lady' seems a touch too formal. Anyway, I'm an Australian in my third year of uni. I've loved Harry Potter since before I could read on my own, back when Mum would read the series aloud and accidentally confuse my already-literate older brother by skipping the scary parts.
I have an account with the same username on AO3, which can be found.
Thank you to my dear brother for betaing essentially every fanfic I write. He's asked me not to include his name, but he's awesome, even if I haven't yet convinced him to upload any of his own writing.
However, he's been really busy with work lately, so I'm casually looking for a second beta reader; please let me know if you're interested.

Stories I've beta read
I tend to prefer focusing on character development or capturing one facet of a character, relationship, issue or idea rather than having a plot-centric story.
Also, I love grammar; it's kind of weird, I know, but my French lecturer got me hooked on it. Still, I slip up more frequently than I'd like; transferring my fics over to AO3 has shown me exactly how often mistakes have slipped past me. So if you see a grammar mistake, please let me know so I can review it.
On that note, thank you in advance to anyone who reviews! It’s nice knowing what people agree or disagree with, like or dislike. I tend to draft at least most of each story before posting, so it's unlikely to drastically influence their direction, but commenting may still prompt thought on either or both of our parts, which is always a great thing. On that note, I intend to respond to all reviews and PMs, but I'm quite a bit behind on them. I think I just need to take a timeout the next time I have a somewhat free day to get my act together on that front.
Finally, I fully intend to finish what I start. This is one of the main reasons that I finish stories in advance; it's so I don't run the risk of writing myself into a corner that I can't get out of. Still, if something happens and I can't finish it for some reason, I'll at the very least put up some sort of summary of the direction I was planning on going in and open it up for adoption.
My brother and I love looking at and synthesising Harry Potter theories. As a result, a lot of what I write may not fit with the common interpretation of a character or scene, and I won’t necessarily put up an OOC or AU notice because I won’t necessarily recognise it as such (oh, the downsides of extensive headcanons).
There are a few characters of whom I am not very fond or who, I think, have some rather significant character flaws that would cause rifts post-DH. I’m never going to ‘bash’ a character unless it’s for satire, and - as I’ve never been very good at satire - that’s unlikely, but I've no doubt that it's going to show through in some way. Similarly, I hate how all Slytherins are portrayed as bad, so there will probably systematically be good or at least neutral Slytherins present in my writing.
This game is essentially a shipper's dream and nightmare rolled into one. The tactical part of it is fun and immersing, but a lot of the replayability comes from the aim to finish all the supports. So you have the option of pairing up the characters you ship rather than following set paths and endings, which is wonderful, but to finish the game fully you need to break up your ships, too, which is a little heartbreaking at times. When I finally finish all the supports, I'm going to have to go through again with the ones I like just to wash the bad taste away.
Lizzie Bennet Diaries
Such an amazing show. If you haven't watched it yet and you in any way like Jane Austen or webseries or unique adaptations, you should check it out. It's so worth the emotional upheaval. Besides, where else do you get to be a part of a fandom that calls itself the Seahorses?
So many mixed feelings! Like most of its teenage girl readers, I loved the books when I first read them; there was something about them that hooked me completely. I didn't even get frustrated with New Moon until I was almost near the end of its Horcrux-hunting equivalent. But then the way I saw the world changed. I still find the world compelling, but there are a number of problems in the way the main relationships are handled that make me wary of rereading the books. I like the world, mostly, and I like some of the characters, but any Twilight stories I write are unlikely to follow canon in terms of pairings.
