Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter.

Hello all.

I'm a 24-year-old reader, writer, perpetual people-searcher, former teacher and current law student. I've ended up here out of an unavoidable combination of the first three three. So, aside from a deep-rooted love of all things that allow me to delve into the why's of human behaviour, the little creativity I do possess manifests itself here.

As of recently, I'd fallen into a funk where all I was doing was reading, and reading, and reading stories, without either contribution or response. Now, I've decided to turn that around as much as an effort of discipline as a desire to re-immerse myself into something that I have long enjoyed. Feel free to critique, question, comment, advice, or just talk - you'll find no wariness here.

I am what you see, and what you don't.

Harry Potter:

The Patronus: On hiatus. Lily Evans never HATED the Marauders, she merely didn't like them. But when Voldemort takes an interest in the muggleborn Head Girl, James is the first to help her. When circumstances change, how will Lily adjust to this side of James Potter?

James: It wasn't so much that he loved her, or that he grew up. It was that he was. And that he became. And that he grew. Well, she did too, in the end. They didn't grow together, or for each other, or because of some elaborate and sticky setting of circumstance. They just did. They just waited.

The Dream: A canon story, with how Remus came to be so alone, what brought James and Lily together, what pushed the headstrong Black over the edge, why we never heard from Lily's friends, and what exactly a not-quite-other-character had to do with it all.

To Start from the Beginning: They all, and the pieces that brought them together, had to start somewhere. Let's try the beginning. The prequel/stand alone side-take to The Dream.

Building Rome: “Is it just coincidence, then,” Mars asked, turning her so that she faced him again and he saw the shine glossing her eyes, “that you’re named after their mother, and I after their father, and that my son is a newly-turned werewolf? Or that Remus’ mother’s name was Sylvia?”

Tojours Pur: A Black family one-shot. Even the sunniest of afternoon lakeside conversations carry the shadows of foresight. Perhaps because the sun illuminates the weeds already taking root... Particular moments, sisters in italics, radical ideologies and the second wave of feminism. And yes, 'toujours' was deliberately misspelled, any guesses as to why?

Chasing Shadows: Her name was Mrs. Figg, not just Arabella. And she kept cats to chase away the empty shadows that mocked her for her loss.

Round: In Progress. It's all about unintended consequences and healing a broken girl. Or breaking a healing one. And discovering if the legends were right about Pandora's Box: ‘I am not undeserving and damned as you are. My damnation is my own doing. I have destroyed the world. Destroyed it. Ripped time from its fabric. Done something so horrible that even the most despondent apocalypsts have refused to discuss the repercussions of my actions. I should pray for an eternity in Hell, because as of now I am so irredeemable that I shall be wiped off the face of existence. I don’t exist anymore.’

Coming Up Next: TBD
