(A little bit) About Me
Like most people on here, I've been writing "fanfiction" in my head all of my life, but didn't know that there was a name for it... or that other people did it too. I discovered internet-based fanfiction during the break between Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix, and went on to write some of my own stories at the Sugar Quill. Years later, I'm still an active participant in most things HP, but have expanded my horizons to include multiple other fandoms as well. Real!Life frequently tears me away from fanfiction, but I do my best to remain consistent with stories, reviews, and review responses. While I make an effort to personally respond to every review I receive, sometimes that doesn't happen; if you left me a review that I didn't respond to, allow me to take this moment to thank you and to extend my apologies. I treasure every piece of feedback that I get, and constructive criticism in particular helps to make me a better writer. (Which, in turn, means better stories for you to read!)
You can also find me on AO3 as Phosphorescent, on LiveJournal as naidheachd, and on Pottermore as ChestnutShadow11597. Be warned, however: I don't frequent the latter two of the above sites very often, so if I don't respond for a while, it's nothing personal. If you ever want to chat, feel free to send me a PM; I don't bite... much. ;-)
Finally, if I have written anything problematic in my stories, feel free to let me know and I will do my best to fix it.
I like: hot tea, books, roller coasters, plays, music, dancing, crisp autumnal days, blueberries, matzo ball soup, dark chocolate, thunder and lightning storms, folklore, history, and debating.
I dislike: narrow-mindedness, olives, artichokes, seafood, poor characterization, reality TV, and bad grammar.
