Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.
14 January 2007: Some cookies posted to my LJ. Chapter's currently at 9000 words, with a final word count of 12000-14000 expected. As far as when it will be posted, I'm tentatively saying February.
20 May 2006: After a month's setback due to a very un-funillness, the chapter is back on track and gaining steam. We're at 14000 words, with the final chapter count likely to be in the area of 20000. More details, as well as cookies and a short Salazar-Godric ficlet, can be found on my LJ. Stop by, introduce yourself, berate me for taking so long.
10 March 2006: Cleaned up the profile just a tad. Still working on chapter twelve, which looks like it will be closer to chapter ten in length (as in, ~16000 words), though this is an early estimate. I invite anyone with questions or a desire to discuss the stories to stop by my LiveJournal, where I routinely post updates on the chapter progress and occasionally, cookies. It's also the place where I get to share interesting backstories that would choke the story with exposition if I tried to fit it in. Lurkers welcome. ;)
Old news: If I Never Know has been removed, but then, you probably noticed that before you read these notes. It's been over three years since I updated it, and I no longer have any interest in the story. It was nice to be one of the first people (few that there are) to write Harry-in-Ravenclaw, though. I apologize to everyone who was following the story.
Older news: Greetings from the other side! Of the country that is, now that I'm in college. No, it doesn't mean I have any more free time; it just means I have more motivation to find ways to procrastinate, which sometimes translates to writing. Since I'm an editing fiend, some of you might have noticed signs of my renewed existence. Nullifier is being edited chapter by chapter, and once it is edited, I will post the next chapter, which is completely done. It sort of has been done since January, but I worked it and reworked it several times, so it's actually rather different. I won't say anything about posting frequency after the chapter (a long one, which I hope will in a tiny way make up for the ridiculously long wait I've subjected you poor readers to), but you might be pleasantly surprised.
Nullifier is edited to chapter four now, which means I'm halfway done. Though there's about 2/3 of the story left to edit at this halfway point, the more recent chapters are better written. I anticipate that chapters 7 and 8 will need only minor edits. I've been changing a few things, extending scenes, adding some ideas from HBP, clarifying stuff, tightening characterizations, etc. I very highly recommend that you take the time to reread Nullifier before diving into the new chapter when I post it (it's been so long that you might need to reread anyway!). I assure you, it will read much better than before. In fact, I also recommend anyone tempted to read Nullifier wait until I finish editing, because the transition between edited and unedited chapters may not be smooth.
I'll probably be editing my LJ soon to get rid of old posts, and then, um, make excuses for taking so long. And apologizing. And ranting about life at college. And stuff.
Anyway, we now return you to your regularly scheduled profile. :)
About me: Freshman in college, attending MIT. Very tall, long brown hair, grey-green eyes, self-described computer nerd. I aspire to make computer games once I get my CS BS. Aside from staring at my computer screen most of the day, my hobbies include reading (the end-all pastime), writing (chases away motivation faster than anything I know), dabbling with Photoshop (the possibilities...), playing computer games (no, it does NOT count as staring at my computer screen, I assure you that my eyes move from time to time), and baking many desserts (results vary, ranging from the surprisingly good to the cat-barf-dribbled-with-alien-slime).
For fellow science fiction enthusiasts, I highly recommend Lois Bujold's Miles Vorkosigan series. Such books I could die reading, and my only complaint would be that I didn't get to finish them. There are, of course, other wonderful sci-fi books out there (most anything by Asimov, Bear, Weber, did I say Weber, RINGO, etc.), but it would take more text than I'm willing to write to give fully-fleshed recommendations for those giants. I think I'll take the time to recommend some locals, however, whose works you don't have to buy to read. ;)
For Harry Potter:
Some things I like/think (though in some cases you might think otherwise, reading my stories...)
About the stories:
Nullifier-- Probably the closest I've come to a humor fic, though it has action and drama, to be sure. Harry isn't happy with the way his life has turned out, he's tired of meddling old fools like Dumbledore, and he's none too pleased about being the first nullifier since Salazar Slytherin. When he messes up Dumbledore's careful plans for sending him with a full retinue to the earliest days of Hogwarts, it's up to seven Aurors and four founders to see him through this journey alive, because Voldemort might not be as distant as a thousand years should make him, and Harry is too damn good at making enemies. Provided they don't give into temptation and kill the cheeky snot first.
Enjoy the stories.
