New fiction story posted at: Under a Jungle Sky
(for those of you interested in a little something new)
Update (January 2018): School is back in session, so all stories are on indefinite HIATUS with sporadic or nonexistent updates while classes and school come first. Inspiration is hard enough even when I have time. Please understand that sometimes I'm just not inspired, and I don't force myself to write when I can help it. There is no fun in that.
Visit my Tumblr account for links to my off-site stories at corvusdraconis. tumblr. com.
My OTP in HP is HG/SS, but my OTP Crossover is HG/Loki
I also ship HG/Viktor when he sneaks in like the ninja simurgh he is. NINJA!
My stories strive for the happy ending. I tend to write creature features. I write Animagi that defy the rules of Animagi. I write huggable monsters. I include adorable plush spiders and celestial weavers as well as baby gargoyles and phoenix chicks. This is what I and my betas like to write about, so that is what happens. If this appeals to you, enjoy. If not, I wish you the best in finding something you like elsewhere.
All of my stories are on indefinite HIATUS as school resumes August 22nd. I will only write when I have time, and I have 2 clinicals on top of my lectures, so the chances of that-- are very slim. Thank you for all your positive comments and regard. Thank you more for your patience and understanding that inspiration does not breed in a vacuum.
To Guests that do not seem to understand that inspiration requires positive feelings for me. Writing admonishing comments saying that I'm a bad writer because I haven't finished a story? Please. If anything, that just makes sure I don't have happy feelings in which to be inspired. Maybe other writers can write in a funk. I am not, and I will not force a chapter out while I'm uninspired JUST so someone has something to read. There is a reason I do not end my chapters with cliffhangers. I try to. Very hard-- because I know how that feels ending on a "omg the bad guy! what happens!?"
That is the best I can do. Now that school is back in session (and I had summer classes too, people) I have to put my priorities in the education I'm paying for. I need to keep remembering that is more important than fanfiction that I wrote to de-stress and feel better. University is not cheap. School comes first.
Writing has become my therapy, in many ways, and sometimes the posting increases because I'm more stressed, if that makes sense. That being said, I do enjoy writing, and I hope that you enjoy the pieces I have written. There are times I feel very inspired, and times when I wonder where my inspiration went. I have a fondness for Animagus stories, and I tend to favour them in writing. Sometimes I stick to the canon natural animal, and sometimes I just just throw that right out the window and go with whatever my brain thinks is appropriate!
My earlier stories had absolutely no beta, so my apologies in advance for typos, sleep deprivation errors, and random laziness due to my eyes drifting closed without my permission. Sometimes, I think something and type something else. Sometimes, I forget words. Sometimes this website EATS words without my permission either. Random. Very. I try to make the story as coherent as possible with only myself as my own beta. Alas, I am not perfect. If I was, I wouldn't be going to school, right? lol.
My sincere love to fluffpanda, who has taken upon herself to wrangle my forgotten words and oddball grammar, dyslexia, and dysgraphia into a far more coherent form. I'd steal some chocolate from Remus and give it to her, but Remus would be heartbroken, so I shall... bake her chocolate cake instead! (And you should too! She's awesome!)
It is with sincere love and relief to welcome The Dragon and the Rose and Dutchgirl01 as my on the fly betas who have taken it upon themselves to keep me on target when my dear fluffpanda is buried in work. (it happens!) Praise them!
I have, and shall continue to use “master” as a uni-sex reference for someone who has obtained a level of experience that they can have an apprentice of their own. This is intentional. I do this instead of using master/mistress save for the use of “headmistress” which is a job title. Why? Because in my world (in my head, and the chairs are comfy here) you are either a master or an apprentice— or you are a person who doesn’t need/desire to be so and just goes out in the world with the standard education. Come to think of it, look at the Jedi. It was always about masters and apprentices. There was never “mistress Jedi”. (Just a little disclaimer because I still end up with some people sending me reviews trying to correct my use of master and force me to use “mistress.” This is my take on it. We all have different ones, or there wouldn't be so much fanfiction out there!)
My OTP is HG/SS with a heavy leaning towards Ottermione x Severus as my favourite way of going about it (and for those of you who have no idea what the heck that means, I give you the following stories) :For the Love of Water (HG/SS) Set Post-Hogwarts AU with Snape alive. Snape finds an unexpected friend after the war that changes his life forever (Might require tissues, sorry) Luck of the Otter Severus Snape has a furry little problem following him around after the conclusion of the Second Wizarding War. What's a Potion Master to do when even her supposed best friends can't figure out what to do with her? The Impossible Cure [HG/SS] Severus survived Nagini only to be bedridden and paralysed for upwards of seven years with no end in sight. His only saving grace had been a voice that spoke with him every day and the soft touch of a caring hand upon his cheek. The problem is, he has no idea who it is that is visiting him. His memory has failed him, and if he doesn't figure out what is keeping him in his bed, he will loose what he has come to love. Glad it Wasn't Me [HG/SS] (An Ottermione story!) Voldemort botched his attempt at immortality when he tried make his first Horcrux and tried to murder someone and ended up defeating himself. Idiot. Now, no one likes a Slytherin, and the world just seems… mad. This was a get-well-soon story for ShayaLonnie because crackfic Ottermione stories make EVERYTHING BETTER! Time Slipped Over a Banana Peel and How Hermione Granger Fell Into My Life [HG/SS] Thanks to some trick of fate that could have only come from Neville Longbottom, Ottermione finds herself propelled back in time just in right moment to prevent Severus Snape from committing the one act he had spent his lifetime atoning for.
My second favourite pairing that just seems to happen naturally regardless of whatever I have to say about it is HG/VK, and all I can say is that sometimes the characters tell me what they want!
The large/epic/novel-length completed stories that at least has a beginning and an ending is:A Chance for Happiness (HG/SS) Looks Can Be Deceiving (has HG/DM/SS as the Gray Trio, but the main pairing for Hermione is HG/VK, rare I know, but if you read it, I think you'll agree, it's fitting in this story.) My OTP is SS/HG, however, I found myself writing HG/VK for Looks Can Be Deceiving. It just... happened, but I think you'll agree that it was a fitting pairing the way it was written. This was one of those moments when the characters told me what they wanted, and I feel I had nothing to say about it that would convince them otherwise. Heart of the Herd [HG/SS] Neville Longbottom has one goal: cure his parents so his children know their grandparents. He places his hopes into an obscure plant that he finds in the heartland of the centaur people. He takes the plant to his fellow professors, Hermione Granger and Severus Snape to determine what healing properties it has. Things to not go as planned.
These are the stories I am currently working on with alternating inspiration (and crazy random update times) are:A Continued Chance For Happiness (HG/SS) (This story is just a place to throw misc. adventures into based off A Chance for Happiness. It was not meant to have a clear-cut ending.) One Step Forward, Two Decades Back [Hermione Black/Severus Snape] Phoenixes are born from the very streams of TIme. What happens when Ronald Weasley, in a bitter, drunken moment, sets in motion the rebirth of Hermione Granger into the Ancient and Noble House of Black? Can one reborn phoenix change things for the better? Is Hermione Granger dead, or has she evolved? When she befriends the young Severus Snape and Remus Lupin, what destiny lies before her? A Day at the Beach [(Hermione/Loki) In a distant future, Loki runs into Hermione on an isolated beach and finds something he didn't expect: a kindred spirit. Until the Last Breath [HG/SS] When Severus told Albus that had kept Lily in his heart "always" it been the truest thing in his life at that point. Now, with both of his "Masters" dead, he was determined to keep everything living at arm's length. He refused to change anymore than he already had for anything or anyone. Now if someone could just give his atrophied, hungry, and abused heart the memo, that would be great. Time for a Change: [HG/SS] [AU] The world hasn't been right since Albus Dumbledore somehow survived the cursed ring Horcrux. Now Dumbledore has forced Severus between a rock and a hard place. Can he kill the only woman who has ever truly loved him, or will he refuse and die himself? Breath of the Nundu: [HG/SS] AU/Crackfic: One morning, Severus Snape wakes up with a furry visitor snuggled under the quilt with him. As he pulls back the quilt, two glowing eyes lock with his, and everything is turned on its ear. As the rest of his visitor crawls out from under the covers, he realises he has a problem. There is a Nundu cub in his bed, and for some reason, she's bound to him.
One-Shots: (AKA things I needed out of my head so I could sleep)Preservation of Life After Death (HG/SS) Birthdays Are Cold Affairs (HG/SS) Outtake from Looks Can Be Deceiving (Possible Future) For the Love of Water (HG/SS) Set Post-Hogwarts AU with Snape alive. Snape finds an unexpected friend after the war that changes his life forever (Might require tissues, sorry) All Eight Legs of Embarrassing Severus allowed Minerva McGonagall to convince him that becoming an Animagus would be a wonderful idea. It would be useful to have a second form! It could be relaxing! He should have known better than to have listened to a bloody Gryffindor. Chimes of the Witching Hour: [HG/SS] Hermione Granger and Severus Snape became friends after the war. Severus ends up giving Hermione relationship advice on how to get the one she loves to realise she loves him. Things do not end the way he expected. A Meeting in the Clouds: [HS:SS] Severus has always been the local Dungeon Bat. That was his moniker for as long as his hair has been greasy and his best-known personality trait was being a git. What he didn't know was that he wasn't alone. EWE. A Tale of Two Phoenixes: [HG/SS] Once upon a time there were two phoenixes, but they did not start that way. Sometimes Fate has other plans for you, and the path is not always linear. (AU) Crackfic! EWE

I can only apologise if it offends someone, as it offended me just having to put myself in to character to write it at all. Round Eleven (Final): You Can Take My Breath Away : [HG/SS: Severus Snape has never been a master of emotional confession, and until this point, Hermione hasn't faulted him for it. Time is running out, however, and if he doesn't figure out how to untie his tongue and stop tripping over the social pitfalls, she's going to walk out of his life–perhaps never to return.

[HG/SS] AU: Harry Potter believed that Voldemort had to be stopped. He truly did. He believed he had to make the ultimate sacrifice to do so. What he didn't realise was that when Darkness asks for the ultimate sacrifice, it seldom lets you pick what that will be. Dark!Harry. Even Darker everything else.
