Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.
Hi everyone! I'm guessing this is where I'm supposed to write about myself or my stories.
I am finished with school and never considered myself a writer. Then I got a bit obsessed with the Harry Potter fics and started reading the fanfiction. After that, I couldn't help but have little plots running through my head, needing to be spilled into stories.
The ship I like to read and write about is Lily/James. Here's what I have so far:
1) A Magical Journey: If all goes well this is the first of a trilogy. It is pretty long because it covers all seven years of Hogwarts for Lily, James, the Marauders, and several other well loved and not-so-loved characters. I started writing it as a shorter story but once I got to picking a DADA professor the entire plot changed and I decided to add a mystery and my own twist to how the positive and negative feelings developed between Lily and James. Of course, I had to add in comic relief, mainly using the Marauders. I'm up to about chapter 86 and am on their sixth year - so, yes - this is a LONG story. Not only does it explain several of the events we know happened (how the Marauder's Map was invented, the process of becoming Animagi, why Lily turned James down, how they got together...), it has an underlying storyline that ties all seven of the years, plus a few hints for the upcoming sequels. The second in the trilogy would cover from after graduation to the night Voldemort attacked Godric's Hollow. The final installment would lead to the final battle with Voldemort. I am really trying to stay as close to canon as possible, though there will be a few inconsistencies I found out after writing a large chunk - James is a Seeker in this fic, Mad-Eye Moody already has his magical eye, etc... There are a few things that will look like inconsistencies that I will in fact create my own twist to and in the end it will work in canon with JKR's books (in my opinion). It'll be fun to see if the readers can catch these 'inconsistencies' and how they are resolved. THIS IS WRITTEN PRE-HBP!
2) A Glimpse: One-shot Lily/James ficlet. I wrote this while working on A Magical Journey. Since AMJ is so long I felt the need to make a ficlet that got straight to the point about how they got together.
3) Music of the Night: One-shot Lily/James ficlet. This one came to me while I was driving to work one day. It's supposed to be humorous but it has other elements, too. Read it and let me know what you think!
Give my fic's a try and leave a review - positive or negative - just be polite and constructive, and if you don't like it then let me know why.
September 10, 2006: Chapter 92 of AMJ is now posted!
