Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter, Stargate: SG-1, and Lord of the Rings.
I'm British, mid-20s, studying law.
Interests include writing and reading fantasy fiction, travel and Spanish, cooking, running, philosophy and politics.
The Forgotten Labyrinth. Post-PoA canon divergence. Canonical world, non-canon events. The story is an attempt to continue the HP series along the lines of the first three books, albeit developing in tone to match Harry’s increasing age.
The One He Feared. Probably my best story from the standpoints of technical writing, characterisation, humour, and action. Unfortunately, it has a fatal flaw: I was too clever for my own good when I came up with the plan, and now realise that putting your climax at the end of the first third of the story isn't a great idea. I'm honestly not sure if there's anything I can do to fix the story, but I am at least happy that the story as it currently exists tells a semi-contained arc with its own climax.
Alexandra Potter rewrite. I wasn't happy with this story so I have removed it so that it can be completely overhauled to be lighter in tone with more likeable characters, less AU, and written like a proper story rather than a sandbox for various ideas. Copies of the original can be found floating around the internet.
The Next Great Adventure. I just started this as a bit of fun and to prove a point, but it received enormous response, so I'm determined to do something with it. My original plans for the story were over-ambitious, however. The new plan is to write it as a short story covering Harry's adaptation to Middle Earth but not covering any major heroic plot. This can then serve as a platform from which others can write realistic Harry Potter in Middle Earth stories.
Lords of Magic. The first year of a seven year AU in a massively different world. In the end, this fic had one great idea and quite a few bad ones. Many of the characters were cardboard cutouts, the pacing was shot, and the plot I had for first year was rather boring (in fact, it wouldn't have even looked like there was a plot until the climax where the reader would reinterpret many previous events).
As of August 2016 I have removed a number of old stories from my profile that I wasn't happy with.
I've spent a lot of time, over the past 8 years, thinking about the Harry Potter world and magic, and have written down my thoughts on these matters here. It's a pretty extensive and systematic theory of magic, based on canon. It's still incomplete, with sections on Charms and Dark Arts to come soon.
Also see my thoughts on Wizards vs. Muggles.
Please note that my favourites list is not really a list of favourites in the sense of "the best fanfiction". Rather, it is simply a list of fics which were interesting enough to make me want to read further updates.
