Author has written 50 stories for Glee, and Harry Potter.

About me:

I'm an adult(ish), non-native speaker from the CET region. I used to have more fics up here (2004-2005, 2009-2011), but took them down when the site made some policy changes I didn't agree with. However, the temptation to share things with you was too great, and you know what Oscar says: "The only way to get rid of temptation..."

I reactivated this account for my Glee NaNoWriMo 2012 project. Bildungsromance was my first public Glee fanfic. It was written during the Glee hiatus in November 2012. Since then, a few new stories were added, including Bildungsromance II, which I never intended to write but got so inspired by all of your reviews and private messages that it almost wrote itself.

I often feel that Glee misses opportunities for character depth so I try to add my thoughts, using what background from the show I can, and somehow fill some missing scenes. I try to be as close to canon as I can- feel free to point out any inaccuracies if you feel something is amiss.

I enjoy Glee talk and sharing opinions; if you feel like chatting, drop me line :) I have a tumblr account too (jwmelmoth), where I mostly reblog pretty pictures of Chris Colfer and discuss episodes. Sometimes, I post my fan art there, or stories that go beyond the rating allowed on ff (ooh naughty) ;)

Reviews encourage and inspire me, and I try to leave as many as I can when I read yours, too :)

Thanks for reading!
JWM


Update October 27th 2013: Please read the warnings I put on my fics. They are there for a reason.

Update November 19th 2013: Posting a bunch of fics from my tumblr. If you have me on alert, sorry for the spam in your mailbox...

Update January 2014: Happy New Year! It's new year's cleaning for me here so I deleted a few fics I wasn't happy with (mostly Klaine). I am thinking of migrating my fics to AO3 but that probably won't happen for ages because I lack the time. I am still writing, but it's slow-going and season 5 has thusfar been rather uninspiring, if not to say demotivating.
