Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me and motivated me in the past 2 years ever since I started writing fanfiction. I'm sad to say that it's unlikely that I'll ever continue updating Standing By Your Side, Forever. While I have thoughts about either continuing SBYSF or writing a new story (DxD or SAO probably), it is more likely that I'll be writing a whole new story due to me having read more DxD and SAO fanfics over the past year or so. With that said, I hope that all of you will enjoy whatever I write or may write in the future!

It's not too hard to see that I focus on write stories that feature a female version of Harry in the leading role - a female who is taking risks and saving the day.
I find it amusing how often I've seen the objection of "what's the point?" to flipping Harry's gender, as if there weren't any problem in how gender is currently treated in most popular fiction (books, movies, TV, you name it). To ask "what's the point" of putting a female in the leading role is to assume that it's normal and acceptable for males to usually be taking the most risks and saving the day while female characters are relegated to research and support, to playing nurturing roles instead of protective roles. It assumes that it's acceptable for girls to always be the ones put in danger while boys are always the ones who do the saving, thereby showing how brave and heroic they are.
What's the point of having a girl save a prince - or even a princess - from a dragon? What's the point of a having girls save the day while boys provide support in the background?
Because people actually keep asking that question!
I wouldn't feel any urge to go out of my way to recast a male character as a female who now gets to do all the same bold, heroic things he did if it weren't for the fact that our culture today continues to find such arrangements strange and unnatural. I wouldn't go out of my way to do it if there weren't so many people who are so befuddled by the situation that they genuinely and sincerely don't see the point of having a girl save the day instead of a boy.
Somewhere in your life, there exists at least one female. I'm sure of it. Would you really tell her to her face that she can't be brave and heroic? That she can't be confident and daring? That she can't save the day?
If and when the day comes that heroic girls saving nurturing boys is just as common in popular fiction as the reverse, then I won't see much point in stories like mine, either. Until then, reaching that state of affairs is the point."
