Fanfiction Things:

A Cadmean Victory - My Harry Potter piece, now complete.

A Cadmean Victory Remastered - The hopefully much-improved reworked version of the above!

A Cadmean Victory Remastered Audiobook - The audiobook version of the above, complete with the exclusive prequel chapter!

A Taste of Ismenian Water Epilogue Version - The epilogue to the original A Cadmean Victory.

A Taste of Ismenian Water- The sequel to A Cadmean Victory, consisting of six parts, and still ongoing!

A Canvas of Crowns - My A Song of Ice and Fire piece - sadly, this piece has as much chance of reaching the ending as Viserion does.

A Spoonful of Sugar - Harry/Fleur. A little softer. A little sweeter.

A Pocket Full of Posies - A post-war Harry/Tonks short piece.

Beneath a Red Umbrella - An accompanying spin off to A Cadmean Victory Remastered. For those who are fond of Katie.

La Foi - My little experiment with multiple languages and perspective, and also a short little romance post-war romance piece.

Que Sera Sera - A cheerful Harry/Tonks novella. Rumours have it this one might have a happy ending!

Through the Looking Glass - A very very short Harry/Fleur challenge piece.

A Sickle For Your Thoughts - Another little experiment and a puzzle for the reader! Post-war Harry/Fleur once more.

The Seeker Blinding Playbook - Harry/Alicia. A rare pairing! A short little AU high school romance/drama novella.

A Ship in a Bottle - Harry/Alicia again! A short little post-war AU involving Harry's Potter arch-enemy, Rita Skeeter, and an exciting holiday in the Caribbean.

Dolce - The Harry/Daphne shortpiece challenge that's as sweet as its title!

Blood and Grenadine - A postwar romance piece. Way more explicit than FFN allows, so only the first couple scenes are on this site. The rest is on my own and Ao3.

Emily - Deliciously dark. Arguably the best of my shorter pieces.

Original Things:

This is the bit I really love.

The Shadow of the Moon:

An original fantasy piece and work in progress. Available on my web-site to my patrons, save for the first chapter which is free-to-view. Do check it out if you fancy! I'll leave a catchy-ish blurb below to try and tempt you!

The brightest lights cast the deepest shadows. The corrupted paradise of Aedyn spreads its hegemony beneath a six-crowned flag; its tyranny borne on the blade of its First Swords, unmatchable warriors of unnatural prowess. Those that dare to resist fight a desperate struggle, searching for some way to defeat the undefeatable.

Ilerwe, youngest daughter of the King of Thuun, is smuggled from her besieged city. Refusing to flee, she gambles her life on finding the only one rumoured to have ever defeated a First Sword, the Shadow of the Moon. But instead of a legendary warrior and champion, she finds Athion, travelling peddler of magical stones. Together, they seek to save her kingdom from Aedyn's grasp and bring an end to its tyranny.

But paradise lost is not so easily regained and the moon's shadow is as dark as any other.

The Last Rose:

An original fantasy web serial. Available on my web-site to my patrons save for the first chapter which is free-to-view as with the one above! Slowburn and very much not nsfw, but with grand plans to come. Do check it out if you fancy! Here's a catchy blurb to tempt you!

Crippled in an unfortunate hunting accident, Henri recovers in Avansview Church, praying, hoping, that the Winged God will heal his leg and let him pursue his dreams of knighthood, honour, chivalry and love. But the Winged God does not reply. And in an old box amongst dusty books, Henri finds something else. Something darker. It offers him another way. For a price.

The Burning Star:

If you liked A Canvas of Crowns, this is what happened to all the bits I liked after I had to give up on it. The prologue's actually based upon the death of everyone's favourite Targaryen, albeit tweaked. It also has a catchy-ish blurb, more ish than catchy in this case, I fear, but nobody likes writing things like these! Almost the entire set of the old novels (five and half of the last one) can be found via the website that must not be named.

The Bright Day has come. Magic returns to a world that has all but forgotten it. The Order of the Magii rejoices, for their prophesied chosen child will usher them from the cruel misrule of Hakon Fyrro, the Pale Jarl, and into into a world of peace and light. Yet, with their hope come evil omens. The once-banished Devourers stir in the wilderness, eager to restore their pantheon to supremacy and plunge everyone back into the mythic Dark World. The magii know only the chosen child can stop them, but where there ought to be one born with the power to defeat the Devourers, there're two, and not even the Ancient, their leader, knows which is the prophesied victor.

Sasyo Ahant, giftless and outcast, is forced from the safety of the Magii's libraries into a divided, chaotic world for fear of influencing the twin girls marked for greatness. To survive, he must become everything the Order of the Magii told him he was not. And always he dreams of the Screaming Man upon his crimson stair into the heavens. And he knows, deep down, that his part to play isn't done.

The Heart-Tree:

I saved the best until last. This is the first novel in my primary project and the first thing I've finished in my more developed writing style, so if there's any one piece of my original work you want to try, I'd start with this one! It's now available in all formats and The Theatre of the Worldbreaker, the sequel, will soon be available soon as well. Naturally, I have another lovely summary!

The Heart-Tree, shrine to the goddess of life, stands over the world-fragment she defends, but beyond its protective reach, darkness has begun to stir. Anastagus the Truthseeker, once among the noblest of the Heart-Tree's guardians, has fallen to the sway of the Spider, and, in her name, seeks the ruination of all he once defended.

For Azaki, orphan and outcast of the Spider’s Clan of the Webbed Pit, this brings the chance for he and his sworn friends to prove themselves worthy of the clan's favour after years of scraping by on its fringes. Under the command of Anastagus’ mad Companion, Kogodakus, he and those others offered up as tribute warriors by their clans will raid their way south through the sacred groves of the Heart-Tree Goddess and seize glory.

However, Azaki’s misfortune sees him injured and left for dead in the ashes of a sacred grove by the sworn friends from his clan. Discovered there by his clan's ancient foes, and now wielding their strange power, he finds there is less to hate in soft, southern lands than he dreamt there'd be.

Yet Anastagus comes south regardless. And Azaki is still bound to his service.

The Legacy Preservation Act by James Spookie reviews
Last Heirs of noble bloodlines are forced to marry in order to prevent wizards from becoming extinct thanks to a new law passed by the Ministry in order to distract the public from listening to Dumbledore's warnings of Voldemort's return. Rated M, so once again if you are easily offended, just don't read it.

A Taste of Ismenian Water reviews
The sequel to A Cadmean Victory Remastered. Don't read unless you've read both it and the short little prequel A Quest For Europa already! Death is just the beginning.

A Spire to the Stars reviews
Summaries give the game away! Have a prophecy instead... "You will chase fate to the place you once loved most, with Agamemnon's penance and Hades's boast. Grief waits for two as they flee the hate of old bones and a hero will die, forsworn amongst thrones. Lost girl from the garden will be followed by three, one you saved, one you helped, and one she'll set free."

A Ship in a Bottle reviews
Voldemort is defeated and dead, but Harry still must battle his true arch-enemy... Rita Skeeter! He's also trying to find a date, find something that gets his heart racing again after the war ended and everything was becalmed, and get away from boredom. Another short piece I turned into a novella, written for a supporter of mine in their attempt to prop up one particular pair!

Emily reviews
Perhaps the very best of all my short pieces so far. Written for someone who very generously supports my writing endeavors as my take upon a rarer pairing. After the dust of the war has settled and everyone begins to move on to pursue their long held life goals, Harry, who has only dreamt of family, feels left behind. Slow-burn for a few short scenes and then deliciously dark...

Blood and Grenadine reviews
At a little bit of a loose end in life, Harry finds himself drinking in a mysterious and magical bar. The bartender promises the magic of the bar will help him onto the next great adventure in his life. And adventure is exactly what Harry will find, if not perhaps the sort he was expecting... Written on the request of one of those who very kindly support me. PLEASE DO READ THE AN!

La Foi reviews
Short piece number something! Post-war, as the short pieces I write most often are. And also a small experiment, as they also most often are! This one features Harry. And Gabby. And Fleur. And Hermione. Someone gets married (to someone else, even). But it's rated K, so don't get too excited... There may be romance! There may also be sarcasm (not in the summary though)!

A very short AU accompaniment to A Cadmean Victory, the Harry/Katie spin off snapshot that nobody asked for! Does require having read the main fic, or it makes no sense! Do read the short AN for this one, because it's a weird one!

A really really really short scene written for a Discord challenge for a Harry/Fleur anniversary. It leans a little on A Spoonful of Sugar, for those who've read that. If I wrote any more in the summary, it'd be longer than the fic, so the rest is read and find out!

For Whom the Bell Tolls reviews
It's been almost a decade since Voldemort's defeat, but the debts owed to victory are not yet paid. Pursued by grudge-bearing goblins for reparations in the wake of a career-ending quidditch injury and plagued by mounting medical bills, Harry stumbles into a new life of curse-breaking and treasure-hunting. And when a chance comes to clear his debts in one go, how can he say no?

In the aftermath of a peaceful summer comes the Goblet of Fire and the chance of a quiet year to improve himself, but Harry Potter and the Quiet Revision Year was never going to last. A more mature, darker Harry, bearing the effects of 11 years of virtual solitude. GoF AU. There will be romance... eventually. Remastered and sequel ongoing!

A Canvas of Crowns reviews
Pull a thread and the tapestry unravels. A song of ice and fire from the very first note. All the difference a drunk, a dwarf and a dragonbone dagger might have made in the right order. An audacious attempt to weave something new from the same web G R R Martin has spun. Likely to be epic length, and to contain aspects of all genres. Now, sadly, as deadard as Eddard.

A Taste of Ismenian Water (Epilogue Version) reviews
The original epilogue to A Cadmean Victory before I decided to make the last chapter the epilogue and leave things hanging. Obviously it's just a single chapter and scene, but I thought I might as well share it as a separate story for those who wanted to see my version of the ending. The full version of the story will continue in A Taste of Ismenian Water (Sequel)!
