Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.

How do you explain who you are in the confines of this little box? I'm not entirely certain who I am, anyway, so I'm not going to froth and bore you all to tears. My job, and you can call me Oryx, is to delve deeper in to stories, explore others' minds and make them do entirely new things for your amusement. Forgive me if I do not write to your liking.

I've given up on the Search for the Last Horcrux. I lost the notebooks that I had written it out in, and so, I completely redid it in The Best Laid Plans. So far, so good, I think. It's probably going to be novel length and full of wonderfully steamy scenes and battles and angry!Ron, snarky/sexy!Draco. Always fun, IMO.

Ships I like:

Harry/Draco: I'll be writing one soon, just waiting for my Muse to tell me the right plot.

Draco/Hermione: Best Laid Plans... I lurves me some shirtless Draco.

Draco/Ginny: Assuming it's done correctly.

Severus/Hermione: Hot for teacher, anyone?

Ships I do NOT like:

ANYTHING with Lucius. I can't stand that guy, no matter how he's written.

Hermione/Ron: It's rarely done right. I'm fairly certain that J.K. Rowling is the only one who can do that and make it work.

Harry/Ginny: Tends to be all fluff, no substance.

Anyway, feel free to email me anytime. I love to hear from my readers, whether their comments be good, bad, or ugly.

About me: I'm a 27 year old woman from rural Kentucky who tends to drown her troubles in fanfiction.
