My name is Erin and I am a bibliomaniac. I've always got a book on the go and read anything and everything. I'm a Canadian living in South Korea, and though I don't have as much time as I used to I still love a good fanfic.
Though I have yet to write my own fanfic I have a couple of ideas for a couple of fics for different genres that have been nagging at me. Once I build up the courage and have time I will attempt to type it up. Most of my free time is spent reading, writing my own fiction or role playing (mainly Harry Potter RP's).
Authors I like
J.K. Rowling, Kelley Armstrong, Lisa Jackson, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Kristin Cast, PC Cast, Michael Prescott, Anne Stuart, Charlaine Harris, George Eliot, Beverly Barton, Lyndsay Sands, James Patterson ect.
With Harry Potter I prefer Hermione centric fanfiction as you'll probably be able to tell when you read the ships that I like.I'm not a very big canon shipper, but I guess that is the result of my version of characters choosing a different path than the one they actually took.
Ships I will Read
Hermione/Slytherins -- mostly because they're dark and I'm not a fan of fluff. I don't think that age matters in a relationship so Hermione with older men is fine with me.

Abyss & Ascent by Lunalelle (Rated M) - Abyss is the starting point for Ascent, and is completed, while Ascent is a WIP. They are both extremely well written dark fics, that capture Voldemort and Hermione's characters well. The characterization of Voldemort is one of the best I have read, capturing his intelligence and dark humour well. Lunalelle shows how the dark arts are seductive and sentient, and has created a complex plot full of mind games and the beauty of the dark arts. Hermione/Voldemort (not compatible with HBP or DH)
When a Lioness Fights by Kayly Silverstorm (Rated M) - This is a completed fic, where Hermione becomes a spy for the Order hoping to end the war as soon as possible. Since she is a muggleborn she can't get close to Voldemort the same way that Severus could and has to take a different approach, one that is very dark and harmful to her both physically and mentally. The fic highlights Hermione's strength, and how Severus and her relationship changes over the course of the story. Hermione/Severus (Not compatible with HBP or DH)
Of Touch by Shorty Trenchrat (Rated T) - A wonderful work in progress that although it takes a while to update is definitely worth the wait. Hermione and Severus are captured by Death Eaters. Severus is tortured and loses both his sight and hearing; Hermione being the only person he has contact with in the cell communicates with him and they form a complex friendship that is very moving. The fic highlights the strength of both characters who are faced with emotional and physical abuse but hold on to the fact that they are not alone. Severus/Hermione Friendship (not Compatible with HBP or DH).
