Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.

"Creativity is the highest virtue of mankind."

I'm Helena von Valsa and grew up with the knowledge that nearly none of my traits, be it virtues or vices, are considered individual efforts: "You got you ability to [insert random trait] from [insert name of random ancestor]." Err, thank you. Not.

Otherwise, I'm into Pen & Paper RPG. I love reading, gaming and watching series and films. I'm a passionate gourmand with a foible for well-made British and Korean clothes (okok, I'm an unbearable food and fashion snob). IRL I work as a consultant and some things that I experience or witness serves as inspiration for my stories.


Beneath Skin & Bane

For all the music lovers, I've created a playlist on youtube with songs I've used as source of inspiration to write the story (IMO, it's really worth listening to).

News August 2017: Chapter 13 is nearly done!

The Catfish by Miss Dasti reviews
Hermione spends her days at the Ministry keeping an eye on pardoned criminals - a tedious task that has her dying of boredom, until it surfaces that Lucius Malfoy may be running a massive Dark market empire, and it falls to her to prove his guilt. And how else to do it, but with a dash of Polyjuice and a hair off Narcissa Malfoy? Really, what could go wrong?

Unthinkable by SerpentClara reviews
Moths tend to be attracted to flame. What if Hermione's need to prove the pure-bloods wrong about Muggle-borns turned into a need to prove herself to one of them, the most prejudiced of them all? The story of a brilliant but naive girl who fell in love with a Machiavellian, sociopathic bigot. Book based, not your typical LM/HG fanfic.

Let it be True by HankLover reviews
A fanfiction telling of what happened after those fateful words were spoken in episode 3 of BBC's 2015 production of Poldark. After the scene faded to black, I was left feeling tormented. The mutual attraction between Ross and Demelza in this episode steams up the screen.

The White Peacock by Bambu reviews
For some, a paradigm shift takes a fraction of a second. For Lucius Malfoy, that fraction of a second is three decades in the making.

Dark Cherry Chapstick by Colubrina reviews
Hermione returns for an optional 8th year after the war and Draco Malfoy, also back at Hogwarts at his mother's request, notices she's changed. A brief dip into the 'makeover' trope AND the 'goth' trope in one fic. ONE SHOT. Dramione.

Behind The Velvet Curtain by 0tree0 reviews
Taking a seat at the bar she beckoned over one of the precisely outfitted members of staff and ordered her Cosmopolitan with a practiced ease; good girl Granger was no stranger to a cocktail, especially not of late anyway. T for safety.
