Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter, and StarTrek: Deep Space Nine.
I have been a major Harry Potter fanfic writer for years and as of recent times, a Star Trekker engrossed in Vulcan and Romulan antics. It's Soval and Vreenak's fault, respectively.
I am often asked if English is my native language (since I do not live in an English-speaking country). Yes, I grew up bilingually with English and German, and I also learnt French later :-D
About When You Touch Me
I thought about this particular fanfic a lot - and ultimately decided to delete the story. I hated the thought of an incomplete story sitting around. An incomplete fanfic is a disappointment for everyone - for me and for you. The other thing is, it was sitting around for 14 years. I started it in 2008. It's almost 2022 now. Over those years, I have moved on in life and fanfiction-writing interests (it's all Romulans and Humans romance now...). I'm in a very different place from when I started it. I think it's the same with you - you are all in different places from when you first started reading it.
I made some attempts to complete the story - only to discover that my writing style has changed a lot over the years. More sparse, less flowery, more dry, less semicolons. I now make it a point (pun intended) to ditch the semicolons.
Deleting the story gives me a certain closure. It allows me to to say, "I wrote that story during a certain part of my life, and now that that part of my life is in the past and over, I want that story to be finished, too."
At this point, I want to thank you all for your enthusiasm, comments, feedback and support. You are a wonderful community, and I hope you'll understand.
If you're into Romulan-Human romance (and the Romulans are a big topic in the latest Star Trek Series Picard), then do stick around.
Link to Diagonalist's Flawed Lines:
Several people have asked me for the link to Diagonalist's Snarry story Flawed Lines. Because fanfiction.net does not allow links to external sites, please use Google (type in the author and story name), and you'll find it.
Flawed Lines was the story which got me started on Snarry. It is still one of my very favourite stories, written with incredible feeling and passion. It used to be over here at fanfiction.net, but then Diagonalist disappeared from this website. I have no idea why, but fortunately, the story is still out there.
