Author has written 23 stories for Harry Potter, Pokémon, and Star Wars.
"People very often say to me, 'How did you do it, how did you raise a baby and write a book?' And the answer is - I didn't do housework for four years. I am not Superwoman. And um, living in squalor, that was the answer." - J. K. Rowling
If you enjoy reading one of my stories or a new chapter of one, it would be most appreciated if you'd leave a little review in thanks! Short, long, constructively critical, rambling, or excitedly incoherent - all reviews are welcome. :) I respond to logged-in fanfiction dot net members' reviews by private message. Non-member (guest) reviews may sometimes get a response in an author's note at the end of a new chapter if there's a specific question that it seems important to respond to.
Recent News & Updates
21/8/18 - Posting Update. Are you enjoying my latest "Perfectly Normal" story? Chapter five of "Extraordinary Summer" has just gone up, and Harry is now away from the Dursleys for the rest of the summer!
24/7/18 - New Fics! Two new fics have just been posted. One contains summaries of all the four completed fics in the "Perfectly Normal" series - warning, contains major spoilers! The second is the first chapter of "Extraordinary Summer", the fifth part in the "Perfectly Normal" series. I hope you all enjoy it! Reviews are, as always, most welcome and appreciated. This fic is complete at twenty chapters, and will update with a new chapter every Tuesday morning, Australian time. (Monday evening for many of my readers in America.)
30/4/18 - Gift Fic. One of my dear readers has written a fic as a gift for me and my daughter, and it's really lovely! If you enjoyed my Pokémon/Harry Potter crossover fic "The Very Best", then have a peek at Andante825's new story, "A Heart So True". It's a rescue!fic and young Harry Potter has a cute Boggart-like Mimikyu companion.
I've made a little community, "Harry Potter for Kids" (and for adults interested in good HP fics with low levels of violence/romance/bad language), which I will slowly add new fics to as I have a chance to review them. Feel free to subscribe if it sounds like your cup of tea. I've recently brought on an extra person as a staff member for the group, so new fics should be added more regularly from now on.
I've started a blog over on my author account at "Goodreads". I'll re-post my "News and Updates" from this profile over on that account, so if you'd like to subscribe there to receive story & writing updates you're welcome to. Note - it's not a story-hosting site, it's a story *reviewing* website.
This is my long series - currently four fics long with the fifth updating weekly with new chapters. You can see the little rainbow image making it easier for you to spot these fics in my list of works. There is also a work summarising the first four fics in the series, as an aid for readers who'd like to refresh their memories on the details.
Series summary: Harry just wants a quiet life. He wants to be ordinary, unremarkable, and get along with everyone. Being "normal" for the Dursleys yielded great results in improving his standard of living, and as he heads off to Hogwarts he still retains that impulse to blend in. Of course, life isn't as simple as that, and Harry is a magnet for trouble, it seems! Give this series a try if you love seeing the pure-blood wizarding culture more fully fleshed out, slow realistic character development, and some unique twists on the canonical story starting with a more realistic reaction to neglectful child abuse than you often see.

You Need More Fics?
Some additional fics are available only on my AO3 account for older readers (same username - BrilliantLady). No fics with a rating higher than "T" will be hosted on fanfiction dot net.
I currently read primarily Harry Potter fics (including crossovers), Sherlock, Big Bang Theory, and Pride and Prejudice fics. I occasionally enjoy Smallville, Buffy TVS, Hulk, Avengers, Walking Dead and Narnia fics. I also like Stargate and Supernatural crossovers with my other fandoms, even though I don't watch those shows! :) You may see little nods to some of my favourite books and shows in my fics. So far the majority of my published fics are Harry Potter fics, with one Harry Potter/Pokemon crossover fic, a Star Wars fic, and a Big Bang Theory fic that's hosted on AO3 only.
Some of my favourite books include: "The Gumshoe, The Witch and the Virtual Corpse" by Keith Hartman, "Prince of the Godborn" by Geraldine Harris, "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen, "The Dark is Rising" by Susan Cooper, "Princess of Wands" by John Ringo, and "The Land Behind the World" by Anne Spencer Parry.
I can also be found on AO3 with the same pen name.
