Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter.

Hey there--thanks for stopping in. :)

Not much to say, really--I've been writing fanfiction for a few years now, under a different pseudonym at HPFF, though I've also been a long-time lurker of this site. I probably won't double-post, mostly because my stories over there are quite old (and badly written!) and I'm not particularly active there anymore.

That being said, I'm fascinated with the Hogwarts staff, particularly Severus Snape and Minerva McGonagall. The concept of their relationship--whatever it may be--gets my imagination running, and their characters are just too colourful for me to leave alone.

Because I'm so busy and have precious little time to write, I also decided to join the fanfic100 challenge on Livejournal. If you're interested in a bit more MM/SS, feel free to give it a go! Links are on my Livejournal page.

UPDATES (16 April 2015)

-I did not, in fact, drop off the face of the earth, although three years without an update certainly makes it seem like it. For anyone still reading, Chapter 6 of The Remnants is up. Finally.

-I will probably begin cross-posting The Remnants to AO3, although under a different pseudonym. No need to panic if you see it there; no one stole it, it's me.

-My opinions of characters have changed since writing many of these fics, as tends to happen. While this shouldn't disrupt my WIP, please be mindful of dates and do not harass me about why such-and-such would not work or should not have happened in my older fics. If J.K. Rowling can change her opinions about her writing, so can I.

-Pottermore, while wonderful, has also destroyed some of the headcanons around which I was basing The Remnants. I have changed many (future) aspects of the story to reflect the additional canon information, but some--for instance, that Minerva trained to be a Healer before accepting a teaching position at Hogwarts--are already part of the plot and will not be changed. I know it's not canon. Shh. :) It's a 6th-year AU anyway.
