Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.
Hi everyone! I'm still a leeeetle bit of a fanfic novice, having only discovered it a year ago, but I'm now an avid convert to this world of never-ending possibilities. I'm currently 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. And anyway, why settle for bland, artery-clogging fast-food when you can have a tender, full-flavoured, beautifully-cooked steak dinner? (asks the vegetarian ;P)
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).
I would LOVE your feedback, so please leave a review or some (constructive) criticism. Please try to be kind, though! I'm not made of iron. Any ideas for character or plot development will certainly be taken into consideration. Don't be shy :)

PS I've also just started posting my work on Archive Of Our Own and Granger Enchanted, if you prefer to follow me there.
PPS I've decided to delete my first fanfiction "Shadows That In Darkness Dwell." When I wrote it I had literally only just discovered fanfiction, read a few pretty bad ones, and thought "I could do that better!" Of course, that was before I started to discover all the amazing, wonderful, complex fics out there. Although I still think it was a worthy first attempt, there were too many issues with the direction and plot (and lack thereof) that I feel need fixing before I would consider putting it up again. I'm sorry to those of you who favourited/followed it - let me know if you want me to work on it as a future project. If you really want a copy, I can send it to you as a docx, just PM me. xox artful
