Author has written 6 stories for Harry Potter.

Hiya, my names Sara! I'm 20 years old and I'm going to college to study Creative Writing. Writing is my passion and I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter, so I've combined the two, and it's turning out very well. I hope you enjoy my stories!

Latin: Insanabile cacoethes scribendi
Means: An incurable passion to write.


I have also recently acquired a penname (black-ink8922) at fictionpress.com, where I will be posting original works!

For information on my stories you can visit freewebs.com/black_ink_drips.

Thought you ought to know.

Updates:

-31st of July:

Due to computer problems and lack of time to write, there will not be an update today. I hope to have an update next week, but we'll see. Sorry! Enjoy your weekend!

-16th of July:

It's been a while since I updated my profile. Thought I would let you all know that I've been writing a lot lately since I got to a really good part and then I came up with even more exciting ideas while I was writing, and now its just flowing out of me, as if I was sipping a juice box and suddenly it just burst open and spilled everywhere (that didn't actually happen, it's just a simile, lol!). I'm going to try to write as much as I can before school starts in September (yikes, its my junior year at college!), but I'll still be updating and writing while the semester is going as much as is possible. If I need to take a break I'll just let you all know ahead of time.

I hope you're all having a good summer/winter! Here in New York it's finally starting to feel like summer since all it's been doing lately is rain, but now the sun is starting to shine and it's reaching 80 degrees. Not sure if that's a good thing yet (probably not!). Anyway, hope you all have a wonderful Friday!

-13th of May:

I finished school last week (yay!), so you'll all be pleased to know I've been writing as much as I can! I finished two chapters so far and I'm just starting chapter 13, which I hope to finish by the end of the day or by tomorrow. I hope you guys have been enjoying the lovely month of May. I am, here in NY, because flowers are starting to bloom! So lovely!

-20th of March:

Hey guys! So the fifth chapter was posted today. Yay! Just want to say thank you to all the people who have been reading and reviewing, as well as adding me and the story to their alerts and favorites! It means a lot to me! I've been crazy busy with schoolwork (midterm exams, studying for the exams, projects, and soon two essays), and will continue to be swamped, so it's a miracle that I'm still updating! But so far I don't think updates will be a problem.

-22 of February:

The fourth installment of the A Different Road series (The Outsider Amidst Turmoil) was posted just yesterday!! I really hope you all liked it! I'll definitely try to keep up the pace by updating every Friday, but I apologize in advance if I have to miss a week because I didn't have enough time to write, but I'll try not to let that happen. Enjoy the new chapters and the new twists and turns!! Cheers!

-24 of January:

I know its long overdue, but Happy New Year!! Anyway, I've restarted school and I don't have very many chapters left before there's nothing left to post. I did write a few chapters during my break, but it was no where near as many as I would've hoped since I had to work. The break seemed to have gone extremely fast! So I'll do my best to write while in school (when I don't have a heap of reading to do, that is). Hope your year has been full of happiness so far and remains so!! Cheers!

PS-- Don't you just hate it when the buttons on a laptop get crooked and won't work when you press on them?! My "4" is being bitchy and I have to press it really hard to get it to work. :(

-28 of December:

Sorry I haven't put any updates on my profile in a few months (though I'm not even sure you guys look at my profile at all), but I just wanted to tell you that my semester ended two weeks ago, I've started writing fanfiction again. It was hard to write it during the semester because of all the essays and homework and I have to write original pieces for school, so I'm sorry to say that the fanfiction was put on hold. Not that you noticed though because I've been updating every week, but I only have four more chapters until I run out, so I definitely have to hurry!! I always liked being 10 chapters ahead of what I was putting up, so I'll try accomplishing that goal by the end of January, which is when I start my next semester.

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanza! And I hope you're New Years is spent with family and friends and bubbly! Cheers to a wonderful new year, my friends!

-25th of August:

Hey guys! Just wanted to say that school is very close for most of us, I think, I just hope you'll all continue to read my stories (and, hopefully, review!) while the school year is in full swing. I wouldn't want any of you to do badly at school because you're reading my story or any other, though I'm sure you'd rather read than do homework and essays (I do that all the time!), but I just hope you won't forget about me. Hope the rest of your summer (or winter) is fantastic!! Cheers!

PS -- Thanks to all the new people who've been adding my story and me to their alerts!

-14th of August:

Sorry if it seems like I've been daydreaming or something lately. Or maybe it seems like I haven't, but I've been a bit preoccupied with the Beijing Olympics (I watch every single night!), I've been writing original works, and my really old computer died, so I was waiting to receive my new Dell Inspiron 1525 (which I now have! yay! Sorry for the bit of commercialism.)

I updated the third story just a bit earlier since its Thursday night, but I didn't want to wait to update it! I get very excited when Friday comes since I can put up another chapter! I love, love, love getting reviews on what you guys think!

Hope all is well with you guys!

-10th of July:

Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know (even though I don't know how many of you actually read this) that I'll probably updating the story tonight (yay for you guys!) because I'll be out all day tomorrow and Saturday. And I would feel bad about not putting it up until Sunday. Plus, you all would probably hate me for doing so. Have a good weekend!

-4th of July:

Happy Independence Day to those in America!! I almost (almost being the key word) forgot to put the chapter up, and immediately ran to my room to put up Chapter 13, so I hope you all enjoy it immensely! Enjoy the fireworks as well! :)

-24th of June:

Well, its official. The last chapter was submitted to MNFF and I will no longer be posting on that site; it will no longer to preoccupying my time. Good news for you guys. Some good news for me is that the 22nd was my birthday and I'm now 19 years old! Woohoo! My presents can be in the form of reviews for Chapter 12 and what you think of the chapter, which will be up Friday.

Also, I've submitted work to fictionpress.com and it would be really great if you guys would read and review my stuff since hardly anyone has read my orinigal works, besides my teachers and a few friends. I'm curious as to what you guys think since I really value your opinion! Have a good week!

-17th of June:

Hey guys! Well, I've decided that I'll be updating every week on Friday!! Yay! Do a little dance!

I hope to update like clockwork, but if something does come up in the future then I apologize in advance. Have a good week!

Things I'm Working On:

1. A Different Road IV: The Outsider Amidst Turmoil: (novel-length)
About: (PG-13/R) Its Harry’s fourth year as a Slytherin, and the Triwizard Tournament is returning after an absence of nearly two hundred years. The deception of the champions and the corruption of the games aren’t the only things that are intriguing the Hogwarts students: a new professor has been hired for the position of Dark Arts teacher, the strange Alaster “Mad-Eye” Moody. Events will take a bad turn when Harry is chosen as one of the Hogwarts champions, against the rules and against his will. At the end of the final task, Harry will have to choose a side, but which will it be? Will he be swayed towards good or evil? Perhaps there was good reason for wanting to leave the Triwizard games in the past because the dangerous and death-defying challenges will test Harry in a way he’s never experienced before.

How will Harry’s years at Hogwarts turn out, now that he's a Slytherin? Will he turn to the Dark Arts and be a follower of Voldemort? Or will he kill Voldemort, or die trying, after he learns of the prophecy? Will Harry's choices lead him down a different road? Follow and you will see...

Completed:

1. A Different Road: (novel-length)
About: (PG-13) Harry's a Slytherin and friends with Draco Malfoy. How will his years at Hogwarts turn out, now that he's a Slytherin? Will he turn to the Dark Arts and be a follower of Voldemort? Or will he kill Voldemort, or die trying, after he learns of the prophecy? Will Harry's choices will lead him down a different road? Follow and you will see...

2. A Different Road II: Influence of a Diary: (novel-length)
About: (PG-13/R) Its Harry’s second year of being a Slytherin, and the Chamber of Secrets has been opened. The Heir of Slytherin is out there somewhere, having students petrified left and right, and by the end of the year someone will die from Slytherin’s horrible beast. But this time, Harry's the one with Riddle's dairy. How will Harry’s years at Hogwarts turn out, now that he's a Slytherin? Will he turn to the Dark Arts and be a follower of Voldemort? Or will he kill Voldemort, or die trying, after he learns of the prophecy? Will Harry's choices lead him down a different road? Follow and you will see...

3. A Different Road III: Friend or Foe: (novel-length)
About: (PG-13/R) Its Harry’s third year as a Slytherin; the infamous prisoner Sirius Black is on the loose after twelve years…and, of course, after Harry. So, to keep him safe, Dumbledore is having Harry spend the summer with the last person he would ever want to temporarily live with. Things only get worse as, at Hogwarts, Black keeps trying to break into the castle and friendships will end. At the end of the year, Black won’t end up on the run nor will he end up a free man, and Pettigrew won’t escape on his own, but with some unexpected help, making the ending of Harry’s third year a can’t-miss. How will Harry’s years at Hogwarts turn out, now that he's a Slytherin? Will he turn to the Dark Arts and be a follower of Voldemort? Or will he kill Voldemort, or die trying, after he learns of the prophecy? Will Harry's choices lead him down a different road? Follow and you will see…
