Bio of the strange person known as California smells funny

I'm Merrie, English girl, aged 19, at Oxford University studying Classics. I write mostly original fiction these days, but I can never rule out fanfic.

I'm sorry to any old readers, but I'm not really in the HP fandom any more, so there won't be any updates happening on those fics.

Currently, my fandom is Naruto (manga mostly, since watching the anime got a bit tricky), for which I ship several different slash pairings, though primarily Kakashi/Iruka and Itachi/Sasuke (now that is one I never saw coming). I'll read quite a few different pairings though, if they're well-written.
