Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter.
I'm 41 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.
"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? Starts out kinda serious, and rapidly devolves into complete anarchy.
"Hunting for Plimpies" is a quick oneshot about Luna discovering her mum dead.
The following stories are one-shots that are inspired by specific pieces of music.
"Ballade #3" is a story of Pansy Parkinson wanting to direct her own life and getting far more than she bargained for. It is a fic to Chopin's eponymous tune.
"Claire de Luna" is a story of an evening of magic with Luna Lovegood.
"Prelude in C# Minor" is a story of Luna finding friendship. Based on Rachmaninoff's eponymous tune.
"Aldebaran" is a story of comfort and tragedy. Based on Enya's eponymous tune.
And this one is just inexplicable:
"Rhapsody in Flew - a ComposerBird concerto" is a series of short vignettes about the life of ComposerBirds.
I put a lot of myself into my stories. I love Luna. Something about her just makes my heart melt. So many of the oneshots I wrote explore aspects of her beautiful personality.
I do not ship. Some pairings may be more of a challenge than others, but I can write H/G, H/LL, H/Hr, H/PP, H/DG, and sometimes I might get a bug up and write some pairing that's so completely off the wall that it makes people wonder about me. At one time I wrote a story about Hedwig and McGonagle in her cat form. So I'm up for just about anything.
That said, each character has their own personality, and I might write a piece because I want to explore the personality of one girl or another.
Though I sometimes will write something as close to MA as I can safely get, I don't write multis. I don't write for wish fulfillment in general, I just want to see where some ideas go.
I left a few plot points untied with "The Goblet's Revenge", but I don't think a sequel is likely to come out of that any time soon. If you think you can do it justice, please feel free with my blessing. All I ask is that you continue the chaos and carnage, and give me credit.
I have several plot bunnies rattling around in my head, and if I can find the time and energy I'll give writing them down a shot. What I can promise is that they will be as completely unlike any other fanfic as I can make them. I absolutely detest unoriginality.
I usually don't read slash (though if it's an ancilliary character it doesn't bother me) and I absolutely do not write it. This is not due to any kind of animus, it's simply respect for the characters. No character in canon except for maybe perhaps the odd Creevey and maybe Draco ever shows any inclination towards same-sex attraction whatsoever, so I'm not going to shoehorn it in just to fit some kind of political agenda. Dumbledore is another animal entirely - I accept JK Rowling's vision of him as gay, but it really has no bearing on anything at all, so I don't see any reason to focus on it. I doubt Harry even knew! This even extends to Femslash, though being a red-blooded male, I might be convinced to give that a try. Tastefully, of course.
Voldemort is not good, and neither is Snape. But I think that sometimes fanfiction authors can fall into the trap of seeing characters as one dimensional. Snape is an utter bastard, but he is nothing if not complex, and is Voldemort irredeemable? Perhaps, or perhaps not. It's something that could be explored.
I really love the idea of "independent!Harry", but it's almost never executed well. It is a rare fic indeed where it has good spelling and grammar, manages to do something unique with the trope, and also manages to treat characters as multi-dimensional without irrational bashing.
I don't really like Ron Weasley. It's not because he's a bad guy and I think an argument could be made for him being a loyal friend as well as a complete bastard, but something about him just rubs me the wrong way. I won't write bashing fics, but I don't think he's going to come out unscathed.
Now, 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.
