Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter, and Labyrinth.

WIPs: I'm updating another Belonging To The Fog before I return to The Governess. Thank you for your patience! I will probably look at beginning the sequel to Play Cissy later in the year. I need to get a bit further ahead with my other stories first.

Thanks for your PMs! Always nice to hear from y'all :)


Hi everyone!

I hope you enjoy my stories! 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. Oh, and did I mention I love writing sex scenes? :D

I've tried to be extremely fussy with my editing, but if you spot any glaring errors feel free to PM me and I will fix them asap. (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.) Unfortunately I'm a slow updater, so consider yourself warned.

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 love feedback, so please leave a review or some (constructive) criticism. Please keep it civil, though! I respond to ALL reviews from registered users, and send loving vibes to guest reviewers. However, anonymous flames will be simply removed. I have a special contempt for over-entitled little oiks who anonymously spit their bile at authors who have spent hours of unpaid labour creating free content. "It's better to create something that others criticize, than to create nothing and criticize others."

To those of you who support, encourage, cheerlead or leave thoughtful concrit, thank you! I dedicate my stories to you.

Many thanks,

the artful scribbler

PS, find me as "the_artful_scribbler" on AO3, or "artful scribbler" on tumblr and Live Journal. Sadly, Granger Enchanted has now shut down, however there is a new spin-off facebook group called "Granger Enchanted Survivors" of which I am a member and active participant. The admins there are also working on building up a new Hermione-centric fanfiction platform called Hunting Horcruxes which includes a memorial archive of lost fics from Granger Enchanted, so check it out if you were a fan of the original site.

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 on AO3.

The Catfish by Miss Dasti reviews
Hermione spends her days at the Ministry keeping an eye on pardoned criminals - a tedious task that has her dying of boredom, until it surfaces that Lucius Malfoy may be running a massive Dark market empire, and it falls to her to prove his guilt. And how else to do it, but with a dash of Polyjuice and a hair off Narcissa Malfoy? Really, what could go wrong?

The Logic of Love (and Other Fallacies) by StoryWriter831 reviews
Jane not only picked her nose, but the Malfoys also witnessed her eating its contents; she used her sleeves in place of napkins; would belch loudly, especially at the dinner table; spilled food all over herself, the table, and the floor when she ate; frequently abandoned her cutlery altogether to pick at her meat and vegetables with her grimy fingers. My O.C. is not a Mary Sue.
