Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.
Hi everyone! I'm still a leeeetle bit of a fanfic novice, having only discovered it in 2014 (IKR? Must have been under a large rock my whole life!) but I'm now an avid convert to this world of never-ending possibilities. I'm predominately fixated on all things LUMIONE.
I hope you enjoy my writing. So far the feedback has been amazing - thanks so much to those who reviewed! It's an honour to have you along for the ride.
My writing varies quite a bit. I sometimes like to wallow in angst and pathos, but I also love all things humorous and ridiculous. I'm not afraid of sex scenes, but I don't like cheap, trashy porn... sex deserves to be well-written, with passion and piquancy...there's far too much one-dimensional, exploitative material in the world that cheapens and degrades sex. It shouldn't be an act. It should be an experience.
I've tried to be extremely fussy with my editing, but if you spot any irksome errors, feel free to let me know. (I use UK spelling as a rule, but the occasional US version of a word may slip through as I'm using an US spell-check. Don't ask me why.)
I have a lovely beta called StoryWriter831 who helps to keep me on track when I am in danger of straying off the path into lala land (a surprisingly frequent occurrence). She is a talented writer, so check out her unique fic "The Logic of Love (and Other Fallacies)."
I would LOVE your feedback, so please leave a review or some (constructive) criticism. Please try to be kind, though! I respond to ALL reviews and PMs from registered users.
the artful scribbler
PS find me as "the artful scribbler" or "artful scribbler" on AO3, tumblr and Live Journal. Sadly, Granger Enchanted has now shut down, however there is a new spin-off facebook group for writers and readers of Hermione-centric fanfic called "Granger Enchanted Survivors" of which I am a member and active participant.
PPS A thousand thanks to bloomsburry-dhazellouise for creating the book-cover design for Belonging to the Fog. You can see the cool gif version on my tumblr page, or on the first chapter of BttF on AO3.
