Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter.

Yo, I'm BigFatNo.

Update 18 April 2020

This is the big one: today I'm going to start publishing part 3 of the Elder Tales: A Grim Odyssey. It's completely done, written, beta'd, and edited. I will be publishing it in its entirety over the next few months, with one chapter every Saturday and Wednesday, starting today. I hope you'll like it! Meanwhile I'm working on something that seeks to recycle the good parts of The Opposing Movement, while cutting out the obsolete stuff. I'm at 35k words right now, and I will give you another update if it's ready!

Update 13 August 2018

Hey all. While On the Woodway is being uploaded, I want you all to know that I'm busy with part 3, the final part, of the saga. It's in its earliest stages at the moment, but I'm super stoked to give the story a fitting end. After it is finished, I want to continue The Opposing Movement again. Plan is to rewrite what is already there; work out the mistakes, plan things a little better, make it a more appealing and more quality story. After that I plan to continue it all the way to the end. I'll keep you updated.

Update 15 January 2018

Eyy. A quick update: the sequel to Driving Miss Weasley is coming along real nice. I'm 21k words in and I'm somewhere between a third and halfway. I hope to finish before the end of the winter. Then you can witness such delights as: Harry sorting his inbox; Harry drinking coffee in a canteen; true crime; classic buddy cops; Stephen King meets Agatha Christie; me not sorting out my priorities and writing this rather than working on uni lol. Coming soon...

Update 27 August 2017

And I am still alive. I am hoping to publish a novella-length action/drama story in a week's time at most. Working title is "Dude, where's my car?!" It'll span 6 chapters, each about 5 thousand words long.

The Opposing Movement is still on hiatus, but niggling at the back of my mind. Ideas are still floating around, and I think I can really finish it. The themes present are still relevant for me, and they will stay like that for a long time, so it will not truly be abandoned. Whatever the future brings, it is certain that I will rewrite part 1. I cringe while reading it, now that I'm a more experienced writer and some of the plot points just don't work, however badly I want them to.

Update 29 December 2016

Due to university, a change of life and interests and the whole host of other reasons you see on every author's profile ever on this site, The Opposing Movement is on hiatus. I never say never, but as it stands now I have no time for it, and I've grown to dislike (despise) the story I've created so much I don't want to touch it anymore.

Maybe in the future I can sort this out, dust myself down and get down to business again, but at the moment I'm not going to publish anything.

I'm very sorry :(

Update summer 2016

The story I'm working on currently, The Opposing Movement, will be a three-part epic. Harry and Ginny are seen in the company of wanted criminal Sirius Black during Harry's third year, forcing them on a path of uncertainty, where they are followed by many parties who are eager to get the trio in their grasp. With the threat of a seemingly immortal Voldemort lurking in the shadows, and a Ministry fully intent on capturing the trio, the road ahead will be dangerous, and the toll will be higher than ever before...

Part 1 of three is completely finished and published. Part 2 and 3 are completely sketched out and part 2 is being written as we speak. So clench those buttcheeks tight. The story is coming.

I'm also active on Archive of Our Own under the same name, and on SIYE under the username BigFatMaybe.

The picture I used as cover image in "A Snippet of News" is not mine. It is made by a person with the username "Pirate Spice" on the website . I haven't edited the picture in any way, and I thank Mr. or Ms. Pirate Spice for creating the picture.

The fanart cover for Driving Miss Weasley is made by my amazingly good friend, Judy, and I can't thank her enough for the amazing work she did!

To Rekindle the Flame by AutumnSouls reviews
The way to Valinor is lost. Men and Dwarves and Elves despair in their decaying world as an old evil arises again. All of Arda stands upon the edge of a knife. And then there's Lily, a source of magic unlike any before seen in Middle-earth. And Sauron knows it. (fem!Harry, set 200 years before the events of LOTR, canon divergence, little to no romance, powerful HP magic)

The Merging by Shaydrall reviews
When the dementor attack presents Harry with an opportunity to begin to fight back he gladly sets himself on the path to have a hand in his future. But as time goes on, it's clear that not all is the same as it once was. Why has his scar stopped hurting? What are these seemingly random objects he's drawn to? How deep does the connection between him and Voldemort truly run? Post GoF
