Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.
Hi my real name is Nathan.
I kinda like Phoenix's, and Dragons, well...all mythical creatures really. except for a few. like the Basilisk - it's too powerful!
I'm relatively new to writing fanfiction, and I'd like any and all feedback (good and bad).
Just set up a Yahoo group here (and at the top of the page (homepage)), i'm going to try to post responces to my reveiwers their whenever I update a story, and i've just posted a challenge for everyone.
My favourite genre is well writen (I don't like the ones that are undescriptive i.e. 'harry went to diagon alley, harry bought some books at the bookstore, harry went home to study.' i want to know things like...how did he get there? what was his reaction to the entrance way opening? did he need any more money? did he go to any other shops? what book shop did he go to, we all know about Floursh and Botts, but are there any other bookstores? what books did he get and what are they about? etc.) action/adventure with a side helping of romance, many of the stories i've read are either too heavy or too light on the romance, cause lets face it a teenage boy is not going to keep his hands off the girls, no matter what the reason for trying!but i find that many of the stories that get the romance levels right are too low on the action/adventure side for my tastes though.
The only ships i don't like are harry/hermione; she's like his sister, and draco/ginny; its like romeo and juliet - and I like ginny too much for her life to end in that sort of tragedy. I don't like badly writen ships that are unlikely i.e. harry/bellatrix, harry/narcissa, but if they are well writen and the story behind it explains how it could happen (like in 'Power of Darkness' by 'Byproduct of evil') i don't mind them.
And i HATE slash, i'm not homophobic, it's their life, they can do what they want, its just that I don't want to read about it.
I also find harry/cho unlikely as JK Rowling has writen her out of the story for a reason! though if it's a good story line, i'll still read it.
To get an idea of the amount of romance compared to action that i like in a story, read the Sharpe novels, by Bernard Cornwell, those are excellent books...but not as good as Harry Potter!
Another thing i don't like are the 'Harry is married to ginny and he abuses her' stories, mainly 'cause she's one of the few people that would actually fight back!
I don't mind superpower fics as long as harry isn't turned into some sort of near-immortal living god, i agree that he has to be powerful though, no average wizard could stand 10 seconds against old moldywarts, and there is that particular line: and the dark lord will mark him as his EQUAL, it kinda points out that he is voldie's equal in power!
Oh, something else i find vaguelly annoying is when someone other than Dumbledore is more powerful than Harry, if they are more powerful then why haven't they killed voldie yet?
I used to stick to reading HarryGinny fics, but have reacently become quite attached to reading HarryBlaise(fem), some HarryPansy...well harryslytherin girl and Harryminor female character.

Fire and Ice Summary:
Shades Of Black Summary:
I've been advised to have a go at writing my own fiction, so i've posted on fictionpress.com. My story is going to take a back seat to my fanfiction, so don't worry about me changing my priorities again.
i would like some constructive critisism on it, its a Sci-fi action/adventure called The Liberation.
Summary: in the past, the human race ruled hundreds of systems, now only five remain, dominated bythe brutal regime of the Repiblican Empire. recently, the most powerful of the many rebel groups that fight for freedom managed to capture a space station. the RE want it back, the US (name of the rebel group that captured the station) want to revive a legend, the true war for freedom has just begun.
