Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter, and Angel.
I'm known on some boards as "Dale Ravenclaw", since every sorting hat program ever found puts me there. I'm mostly a fan, but I occasionally I author a fic of my own. I usually write short works, but that is subject to change at any time.
Hopefully you will enjoy anything you find here that I have written.
Update 2-3-2014: I decided, since several folks I respect had enjoyed The Day the Music Died posted here, to bring my other posted work, Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus here, too. It has been posted at another site under my alternate "Nom de Plume" of "Dale Ravenclaw" for several years, should anyone recognize it.
DDNT is my first published story, and I hope I have improved since writing it, but it is what it is. A look at an AU of "How Harry Potter might have, should have, ended."
TDtMD is a whole different animal, an AU on "How Harry Potter's whole saga should have been."
Both of these are the result of "vorpal plot-bunnies" that would not leave me alone, until I put them down, by writing the story. I do not know when the madness will take me again, or where it will lead me when/if it does.
I am a Senior Staff Software Engineer by profession, and my writing tends to be dry and technical, and some would say, verbose. So perhaps my stories here are brief to prove I CAN write that way.
Constructive critiques are appreciated, flames will result in you being blocked access, as there is no excuse for them. As the saying goes, "If you don't like it, don't read it." I have no delusions of pleasing everyone, but if I don't please you, move along to someone who does.
Update 3.22.14 - Some kind folks who have favorited my story TDtMD, have expressed interest in exactly HOW a youth like Harry Potter could have ever made contact with Wolfram & Hart. Well, Harry DID have SOME people interested in him having a life, and with a bit more experience than he had been allowed to have. Rather than add another Chapter, I have chosen to set up the encounters covered in TDtMD in a prequel story, "Going Legal". Hope it meets with your approval.
Update 10-18-14 - Some of you must be gluttons for punishment (lol) you keep asking for more. Well Mr. Murrow did leave some matters unfinished at the end of TDtMD (Part two of Going Legal), so here is added Just Desserts (Part Three of Going Legal).
Well based on some reviews it isn't obvious to some, so here's the pitch: Three stories form a series Going Logal -> The Day The Music Died -> and Just Desserts. Each could be read as a short stand alone, but each is a slice of a bigger story. Whether there will be a "Part 4" or possibly a second Chapter of Just Desserts is not yet decided. I haven't decided how to play the Weasley family if I turn W&H loose on them to finish the "mop up" operation. For those who wanted a real courtroom story I'm sorry but I can't write Perry Mason very well. Besides W&H rarely confine their activites to the courtroom, and the best sceans are where they don't have to keep up the front of being "normal humans".
