Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter.

I'm 40 years old, male, single, and don't mind being any of those three things. I have a rather obnoxious kitty, though. I currently live in Austin, Texas.

I write because I feel like it. That's all. If you like my story (or stories), please feel free to let me know. If you don't like them, feel free to let me know. If you don't care, then move on. :-)

I had at one point written a story a long time ago called "Price of a Savior", but I removed it because I didn't like it. I removed it, tried to rewrite it, failed, and here I am. Just started another story, though, hope it turns out well.

I try to reply to every review. If I don't reply to yours, it's because I missed it, not because I didn't appreciate your comment.

Stories:

"The Goblet's Revenge" is predicated upon a simple, erm, predicate: What if the Goblet sticks its mitts into the first task and bollocks everything up?

"Hunting for Plimpies" is a quick oneshot about Luna discovering her mum dead.

A few things about me and my style of writing:

I have a very odd sense of humor, and it comes out in my writing. For that reason, I rarely write serious or tragedy fics, I just can't keep the gravitas. So I write surreal or cracky fics.

Sometimes people can't deal with that. There are three quarters of a million HP fanfics on this site alone of varying quality. Those people may like one of those fics better. I'm not too sympathetic when people read through a whole story and then get mad because it's not what they expected. Like the silliness in chapter two wasn't enough to give you a clue?

I also tend to be very economical with words. I tend to use as few words as possible to describe something. Sometimes I use too few.

I like review, both good and bad, but I'm inclined to not be too fond of reviews that actually cross the line into rude. Sometimes those will find their way into the story. I'm not usually complimentary.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy.

Story status: The muse has kind of left me for right now, plus I've been busy with transitioning to an FTE at work from contractor. I do have a chapter about half written but I'm trying to decide if I crossed the "too cracky" line. I also wonder if that's possible. It'll be out when it's out, but I haven't forgotten.
