I just wanna write some weird Harry Potter stuff, man.

4-9-2018: As Puzzle draws to its conclusion (for a total of 46 chapters) I think my next focus is going to be Bad Oracle. I'm also working on some Star Wars things because I shipped Reylo since The Force Awakens, so naturally I came out of The Last Jedi a Changed Woman. We'll see where any of it goes. No promises; finishing Puzzle feels like I'm going through a really difficult breakup.

Sadly, Transformation in C Minor is looking less and less likely to get attention; it's just too much of a mess and the plot is... not good.

9-9-2017: I wrote a lot of weird Harry Potter stuff in 2006, came back to it somewhat in 2011, and then got away from the fandom again. I've come back to the fandom and I'm not about to make more promises I am clearly excellent at breaking, but I will say that Puzzle is currently (hopefully) on a weekly update schedule, and I would like to revisit Transformation in C Minor once the former has reached its conclusion.

Or maybe everything will fly off the rails and I will rewrite the end of Harry Potter starting with the end of OotP because Harry you really needed to learn Occlumency you twit.

Far Beyond a Promise Kept by oliver.snape reviews
Snape never wanted anyone to know of his promise to Dumbledore, but has realised that he can protect Potter much better by taking a less passive role in the boy's training. Actually liking Harry Potter has never been part of his plan. mentor/guardian.

Come Once Again and Love Me by laventadorn reviews
Severus wakes up in the afterlife expecting something rather different than being almost-seventeen again. Seriously, what kind of game is this? But wait - Lily's come back, too - from 1981? Perhaps it's a second chance... but to do what? SS/LE

Bad Oracle reviews
If Harry Potter could alter the past, he isn't sure what he'd change, but he knows he'd change something. If Severus Snape could hold history in his hands, he knows exactly what shape he would mold it into. Albus Dumbledore might flatter himself enough to think he would walk away from such power. But Delphi Riddle isn't here to serve any of them.

"The scar is small, at least," Pomfrey says, pulling the bandage snug around the cleaned wound. There's a pity in her voice that makes Severus want to throw up again. "It will be easily covered." SS/LE ONESHOT

Transformation in C Minor reviews
Harry begins his quest for the horcruxes with an unlikely companion, and Draco Malfoy is hidden in plain sight-as Harry. Totally not DH compliant.
