Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.
Hello there stranger who stumbled upon my profile!
I am a 26-year-old graphic designer located in Düsseldorf, Germany, and I take more pride in my Hogwarts house than my country. I'm a Hufflepuff to the core and I smother people with tolerance and kindness — beware!
If you don't have anything better to do than browse through a random profile (gotcha!), why don't you give Faceless a try? It's my first proper project that I update regularly and plan to finish ideally this year. When I die, however, someone will discover lots and lots of very awkward, terribly-written, half-finished stories on my hard drive. Oh well. Better not worry about that.

Specify & Respect
If you haven't heard of Maloreiy Webster's Specify & Respect Movement, make sure to look it up!
While I do appreciate proper criticism – because it shows the reader's interest in and their interaction with my story – it can drag me down on bad days. As a new writer, it is sometimes more discouraging than encouraging to hear what I could have done better. When I post a new chapter, it has already gone through alpha and beta, and I have probably thought too much about it rather than too little. That's why I urge you to leave Encouraging Comments Only. That doesn't mean they have to be empty phrases; there is nothing that I love more than a reader pointing out what they liked in particular, or reacting emotionally to the plot or certain characters. I also like reading analyses! It's just that in most cases, even well-intentioned advice is unsolicited advice all the same, and that doesn't help. I still have a lot to learn, but there are other ways for me to get that feedback and improve as a writer.
If you, however, have something else that you wish to share with me, I would appreciate your writing a PM. It may be the same content, but it feels different.
With that said, I answer every review if possible, no matter what – except for abusive comments. Thank you for your consideration, and I hope you'll enjoy my stories.
Allow me to end on something a wise man once said:

I own but a humble collection of teacups and coasters — and barmy ideas, apparently. Haven't got a Sickle to my name. Harry Potter belongs to the brilliant JKR.
