Author has written 10 stories for Song of the Lioness, Harry Potter, and Naruto.
The people who read fanfiction or write fanfiction or even have fanfiction read to them, do not read authors notes in their profile. All the readers, writers, reviewers, reviewees leave profiles unread. For whom, then, are profiles written? When an author writes a book "out of their own head," they writes a preface for his own pleasure. The same can be said for those that write fanfiction. After reading their story through, making sure all the 'u's' are not writen as 'n's,' and all the 'n's' as 'u's' in all the proper names - then the author says, mildly, in their profile, what they thinks about their own fanfic and what they means to prove - if they means it to prove anything - and why it is not better then it is. But perhaps, nobody reads the profiles except the site staff occasionally to make sure the said author is not saying anything inappropiate.
This appears to be the philosophy of profiles in general, and perhaps authors might be more daring and candid then they are with advantage and write regular criticisms of their own books in their profiles, for nobody can be so good a critic of themself as the author - if they have a sense of humor. If they do not, the less they say in their profile, the better.
These fanfics, however, are not completely original. When one reads a book they like, and one decides that they too want to write a book, but then discover it is much easier to use characters they have already read about, one generally "borrows" the said characters from the said books and uses them to write their own story. That much can be said for the stories below. That much being, all I can claim from these stories is the plot and sometimes only half the plot. But perhaps it is better this way. I'll let you be the judge of that.

It's been pretty long since I wrote anything for fanfiction.net. Almost 5 years. I actually thought my profile had been deleted and was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't. So, if I can be bothered I will be updating (but probably not re-writing) old stories I have yet to finish. Especially the one about Hermione as a lot of my readers were pretty upset when I didn't finish it. If I can't be bothered, I'll just be updating with new and terrible one-shots I write at 3am because I'm struggle with my own stories and need something light to poop out.
Anyway so I hope you enjoy my new work, and I'll do my best to update my old work :)
Note for a couple of reviewers from Naruto Makes a Move:
I turned up at uni and they said 'write a fanfiction' and I thought what? I explained that what made a successful fanfiction wasn't how well it was written, it was how much sex was in the story. They didn't believe me. Thank you for proving me right.
