Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.

Once upon a time I was a writing tutor. Another time I lived in England, although that's longer and longer ago, now. I love writing dialogue, sometimes to the detriment of the rest of the story. My stories tend to be written in response to fanfiction I've read, but these days I don't have as much time for reading, which is a sad thing. And, for the understatement of the millennium: "I'm a slow updater." That said, "Yes, but..." is several chapters ahead at this point and I'll try to post them once a week until the story's finished. Happy Tuesday.

Yes, but reviews
An irreverent but in-character parody of the MLC where Snape and Tonks show the Wizarding World what they really think about arranged marriages. Nominated for the Multifaceted Awards Round Four in the Laughter and Pride categories. Gloriously AU since HBP.
