Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter.

My name is Erin, and I am from the United States. I am 24-year-old graduate student, pursuing a PhD in physical chemistry.

My favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut. If I could write like him, I would. But I suppose the best I've got is that my (professional) department is where you should look for creative people. My favorite poet is E. E. Cummings. One who reads my poetry may notice that at times.

When it comes to fan fiction, I write in the Harry Potter fandom. My main ship is ADMM: Albus Dumbledore and Minerva McGonagall. My other favorite characters from the Harry Potter series are Severus Snape, Hermione Granger, and Draco Malfoy; I often enjoy Hermione/Draco post-Hogwarts fics. In my writing, I like to explore themes and aspects of characters that are not often seen. Although I have only written fanfiction for Harry Potter, I also like to read NCIS and Sailor Moon fan fiction. I love all of the NCIS characters, and I particularly enjoy stories that focus on Gibbs' role as a father figure to the team. I ship Tony/Ziva and Gibbs/Jenny. As for Sailor Moon fics, I like Serena/Darien (Usagi/Mamoru ... I watched the anime in the U.S. as a child, so their English names are more natural to me) stories that explore their relationship in their everyday lives.

In addition to fanfiction, I also do some original writing--mainly poetry, which you can read at my website, Tralfamadorable.com. You can also find me on Tumblr (collapsedwavefunction) and the Albus & Minerva Fanfiction Message Board (gahhMinerva).

Current Projects:

Not Alone - Sequel to "Fallen Lioness." Minerva faces a long, difficult recovery. With Albus now at her side, will he be able to make the journey easier? ADMM, though the focus is not on their romantic relationship. Rated T for some language and heavy themes. Possible trigger warning for depression/references to suicide. Last Updated: November 12, 2014.

The Closest Person to Him - In an effort to protect her, Albus Dumbledore winds up hurting someone he loves. Will he be able to fix the situation, or will he only push her further away? ADMM. Companion to "Fallen Lioness," but you don't need to have read that to understand this. "The Closest Person to Him" follows Albus Dumbledore and merely takes place in the same time frame as "Fallen Lioness." Rated T for some swearing and heavier themes as the story progresses. Last Updated: November 17, 2014.
