Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.

Writer of stories, obsessor over small details and purveyor of pointlessly long descriptive paragraphs.

I'm sure it'll come out in the stories I write, but a small point about the wizarding world that gets my goat more than it should: it's really, really ridiculous when people write stories about a full-blown wizarding aristocracy, where people trade blows over social status, obsess over titles, and so on, for one simple reason: there are, at the most generous estimate of 160 pupils per year at Hogwarts, a max of 20,000 wizards in the UK. And there are more than 500 actual towns in the UK with more people than that! The consequence of which, above all else, is that the concept of a full-blown aristocracy becomes even more ridiculous than it is in the actual UK. People write about the wizarding world as this arcane world of high politics and warring families; in fact, it'd be better to characterise it as arguments over the tea fund in the world's most ludicrously over-funded village council in a town where everyone gets a gun. Which is a good setting for stories in its own way; but, well, I doubt that Stubbington town council (Population: 24,000) can muster half the array of local dignitaries, let alone the degree of pretention which characterises some of those "Most ancient and noble" fics.

Also, down with the aristocracy, the people united will never be defeated, and all that jazz.

AU. Framed as a thief and expelled from Hogwarts in her second year, her family ruined by debts, many thought they had seen the last of her.

Turned Around in Time by Night Hawk 97 reviews
Time is strange. A greater understanding of the concept only illuminates how much we don't know. In everyday life it doesn't matter, as we're stuck in that dimension with no access to our past or future. Well, most of us. Like anything in Harry's life, the role time plays is... complicated. An attempt to blend the entire Marvel cinematic universe.

The Tinkerer by wickwynn reviews
The Dursley family, who valued normalcy above all else, would of course never dream of keeping their orphan nephew in a cupboard, or of making a spectacle of him. That isn't to say they wanted to spend all of their time and money on him, however. From the salvage of broken toys and unwanted junk, left alone to his own devices, Harry built dreams.

Harry's Loophole by ThinkingSpeck reviews
[COMPLETE] Harry has been entered in the Triwizard Tournament, but during the shouting match with Ron he realises that he doesn't actually have to risk his life and look like a fool in front of everyone - he really only needs to show up for each task and make a token effort.

Lowering the Veil reviews
When Ron's called out, for the fourth time that month, to investigate a potential breach of the Statute, he's expecting a wizard on the lash, perhaps, or an enchantment gone awry. What he ends up encountering is rather less benign.

A Wizard's Guide to 'Banking' reviews
The problem: muggleborns are heavily discriminated against, Voldemort has this terrible habit of killing them whenever he gets the chance, and things aren't getting any better. The solution? Well, find safety in numbers - and if the numbers don't exist yet, find a way to make them - and never mind if you knock the wizarding world on its head on the way.

O Tempora! O Mores! reviews
Faced with Umbridge's impending incursion, the Room of Requirement does its upmost to meet the fervent wishes of the DA and ensure that she won't find them - so, very suddenly, Harry and his friends find themselves a very long way from home indeed, with no idea how to get back. This might be a problem... (Group time-travel, with a minimum of bashing.)
