Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.
STORY TWO: Harry and Merope to the Rescue:
9/19/2020 - Okay. I've finally uploaded a new chapter. Here's to hoping I can stop struggling over the ending of this story.
General notes: Dumbledore bashing. Notes on my thoughts on Dumbledore can be found below.
Also, it seems I couldn't help myself, there is now a fair bit of Weasley bashing in this story. While I liked the Weasleys in the original stories, something that has been pointed out in many fanfics has been they way the Weasleys were introduced at Platform 9 3/4, like not knowing the platform number, despite the fact that she had so many children attending Hogwarts in previous years, mumbling about muggles loud enough for Harry to hear and ask for help. So while I think they were intended to be a good family, it still smells of Dumbledore manipulations...
I realize that Little Harry’s ability to understand is highly advanced for being one and a half years old, but he’s a wizard child and I felt I could take liberties with that, considering his mother was supposed to have been highly intelligent. And James Potter had to have been very intelligent, too, considering how much intelligence had to have gone into the making of the Marauder’s Map and pranks.
Also, it occurred to me that up to chapter 9/10 I had forgotten about describing the weather, as it's December at the current place in my story, there should probably be some snow or at least some really cold weather. I live in a predominantly warm area that rarely snows, so the thought never crossed my mind until this moment. I will attempt to be more mindful of that. - 8/27/2020 - I've still not been mindful of that, so I'm sorry.
If y'all haven't noticed, and maybe you have but don't care, I don't write a lot about the description of the places surrounding the characters, but that is more or less because I personally usually skip through those types of descriptions when I'm reading stories. Maybe it's because I don't typically care what colors the walls are or if the furniture looks opulent or whatnot. When it comes to the descriptions of Hogwarts, the Leaky Cauldron, Godric's Hollow, or really any other established location in the wizarding world, if you don't know what they are supposed to look like or you're new to fanfiction and you really want to read the descriptions, just google them.
Lordships - Probably not going to be a major factor in this series, but it's possible it will come up in the sub-series or future sequels of the series.
DECISION REGARDING THE SUB-SERIES: I’ve never done any one-shots before, but I’m leaning more towards the sub-series being more like snippets/one-shots of Little Harry growing up, posting it all in one story and add to it a little at a time as inspiration strikes, while also working on the continuation of the series of Harry and Merope continuing on their time traveling adventures. I’m sure by the time I mark this story as complete, I will have made a decision on what my final decision will be. Right now I’m just not picturing a whole lot of what I would write about.
STORY ONE: The First Time Harry Tried to Time Travel:
I wrote this mostly by using my iPad, but used my computer towards some of the later chapters. I had a basic idea that I was running with and it was made up chapter-by-chapter with absolutely no outline to follow.
I confess to the fact that I have only read Harry Potter Books 1-7 (and the movies); I have not read The Cursed Child, nor have I seen any of the Fantastic Beasts movies, so my knowledge of Grindelwald is based on the original series and what I could find on Google.
I have never traveled outside of the USA, therefore, anything I know about England (or anywhere else) comes from books, movies, and the internet. Google was not my friend while I was looking up the names of some of the places/shops that would have been around in the 1920s, so I've just decided to be very generic about their locations and just make up the name of the place, should I find that it works better with the story. I did try to be historically accurate with what I could find on Google, but I just wanted to make that small disclaimer about inaccuracies in the muggle world that won't matter overall to the plot of the story.
I realized after I uploaded that every mention of St. Mungo's, I had forgotten the stinkin' apostrophe, by then it was too late for me to be bothered by correcting the apostrophe.
Everything I've learned about Grindelwald has been through Google and what I found on the Harry Potter Fandom Wiki. Also, based on other things I was able to find using Google, the time period I've set this story in is before the events of Fantastic Beasts, so I couldn't really even make that good of an attempt to stick with cannon for him. According to the Wiki, he did not treat his followers the way LV did, and he would not have had them call him master. So I've gone with the notion that Grindelwald is a kinder, but misguided dark lord and as we saw at the end of DH, he did have the capacity to change, so that was another reason for going the direction I did.
Also, I forgot to give credit to reviewer Kilare T’suna for the reincarnation sort of idea with Edward/Tom.
General notes about me:
I started my fanfic journey sometime in 2016 being a firm Hinny shipper, but so far I have found only pottermum, Epeefencer, and gryffindormischief can do that pairing justice and write Ginny the way she was meant to be. I'm not a huge Dramione fan, but I have read a few of those that I have enjoyed. I like some Harmony fics. I seem to have exhausted all the good Hinny stories and and started reading Drarry stories and enjoyed most of those. I have found some Snarry stories that I actually liked, but I don’t expect that to become a favorite pairing anytime soon (I like parental Snape better), shockingly I can like a HP/TR/LV pairing more than I can a Snarry - not sure why. I’ve also enjoyed pairings with HP/Daphne and HP/Susan and many HP/OCC.
My thoughts on Dumbledore:
I loved his character and even cried when he died when I was first reading the stories, and even still loved him after the end of DH. However, after years of reading fanfiction and starting to analyze his character more with every fanfic that I consumed, well, I've changed my view of him. Perhaps he meant well, but the fact that he raised Harry as a lamb (or pig) for slaughter and didn't even have the decency to tell him? Well, that just didn't sit right with me. And the fact that if Harry hadn't have just happened upon Snape at the moment of his death? Well, that just leaves things too up for chance. What would have happened if Harry wasn't there when Snape died and was unable to get his memories? Well, that might be a story to explore one day.
