Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.

Hey all!! Welcome to my little corner of the FanFic interwebs!! _

If you're here, it probably means that you've read my Harry Potter/Severus Snape fanfic, "Right in Front of Me". For that, I would like to extend a giant and very heartfelt THANK YOU!! Although I am - in all honesty - writing this story for me, it's always nice to know that your work is appreciated by readers. I would reach through this screen right now and smother you all in a Hagid-sized hug if I could. :)

*Edited to add: No matter what I’m currently reading, I always think about the characters and wonder who the author sees in their mind. I have created a webpage for "Right in Front of Me" to show my readers who I see in mine… Since I'm not allowed to give out the web address, you can find it - if you are so inclined - by Googling, "Shabby Beach Nest - Right in Front of Me". It's the first link that pops up. :)

*Edited to add AGAIN: Chapter 1 of the newest story in the series, entitled "Right Beside Me", is now up!! _

As you may have already read in my author's notes, I continually find myself attracted to damaged characters, as I find them much more interesting to explore. That's something you should know about me going in - my characters are usually pretty messed up. But untangling their issues is a major part of the process for me, for I really enjoy figuring out what makes people tick. The hubs always said I would have made a brilliant psychoanalyst, lol. (Ummm, thanks babe? I think?)

I'm still working on "Right in Front of Me", and although I have been writing a chapter or two a day, I haven't quite finished yet. Because in my (not so humble) opinion, a good story is like a good love-making session: better when you take your time and really lavish attention on all the details!! ;} So please, if you are ever afraid to start one of my stories because it's not yet completed, DON'T BE!! I will NEVER abandon my stories - they are my babies, and I've poured too much of my heart and soul into them to do that!! Not to mention that I would never be that cruel to my readers (THE NEVER-ENDING CLIFFHANGER, GAHHHHHH!!! I hate those!!)

I have plans in the works for a second story (because Sev is my favorite, and he sacrificed so much that he deserves a little happiness. Don't you think?)

Please feel free to reach out to me ANYTIME with any comments, questions, concerns, advice, party invites, drinking games, birth announcements, video game releases, or even if you just want to give me a good tongue lashing because you don't like my stories. Whatevs, peeps - I welcome it all!! In the mean time, carpe diem and I hope you enjoy the many wonderful stories waiting for you in the FanFic universe!!

Warmly,

Nicole

The Anonymous Letter by Dearlady2002 reviews
Severus Snape survived Nagini's attack, though it left him irrevocably damaged in some ways. Can an anonymous letter show him that someone cares, that he was worth saving? A one-shot turned short story, written as canon-compliant as possible. This is a COMPLETE story- FINAL CHAPTER IS NOW POSTED! Rating is only for a few paragraphs of the last chapter; minor lemons.

A Difference in the Family: The Snape Chronicles by Rannaro reviews
