Bio:


Real name: Unknown

Age: 20!

Sex: Male

What I like to do: I love to listen music (yeah, cliché, I know), to write (what a genius), and to dive, whether it is free diving or scuba diving. I actually have my PADI Open Water license! That will allow me dive anywhere (although a river full of piranhas could prove to be a really bad idea ^_^' ).

Beta?: Yes, I am a beta Accredited by Perfect Imagination :D Well, at least I was... >.> It seems that due to inactivity my accout/accreditation got deleted. I'm still waiting a response from the admins, so I'll let you know!

Stories so far:

- "Wait for Me" (4 chapters; H/G and R/Hr)

- "Sleeping Sun" (one-shot; H/G with a bit of R/Hr)

-"As the Dusk Grows" (one-shot; J/L)

- "Come Back..." (one-shot; H/G)

- "Ocean Soul" (a one-shot about Tom Ryddle and how he lost his innocence)

- "Longing..." (My first poem, R/Hr!)

- "A Night At The Owlery" (It was a challenge entry: 'Write a scene from the books that could have been witnessed by an owl' It won the second place!)

- "Once" (My second poem. H/G)

- "Starlight Dreams" (My very belated chaptered fic).

- "Revival of Autumn" (This is a one-shot centered around Autism. For mature readers only. Not that I want to feel exclusive, but such a sensitive topic demands certain degree of matureness.)

WIP: I'm working in a long chaptered story named: "Starlight Dreams". Unfortunately, the beginning has been a tad slow given the problems of the queue and some other problems I had with chapter two, but I hope to get the rest sorted out from then on :)

Also, there's a one-shot called "Strangers" that will be submitted very soon!

Music: My favorite bands are Nightwish, Apocalyptica, Rhapsody, Avalanch, Metallica (the old one), Guns n' Roses, Helloween, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Dream Theater... and more I can't recall now.

Books: I love Lord of the Rings, and any good book I can find. It can be about anything, as long as it is worth reading.

Instruments: I play piano, and a little bit of guitar, drums, but right now, one of my most desired ambitions is to learn how to play the cello.

Useless fact: Oh, and by the way, my first language isn't english, so please forgive me if you find any horrible spelling/grammar/punctuation mistake.

Recommendations: I want to recommend Narwen3's story: "To See You Through The Dark". It's an excellent story (not to mention completed)! You will surely have an incredible time reading it. Don't forget to leave your review :)

Oh, I was also beta-ing for this story: "Switched" by Cheslin. If you want a really original story, go check this one :) A story of how the cats of Hogwarts have an active life and role in the war literally under the noses of their masters :)

And at last, but not least, I would also like to recommend "Harry Potter and the Battle to the End" by lisa_lovegood (I know I haven't reviewed, Lisa, but I will!!).

All great stories :D


**NOTES**: Okay, I already got one chaptered rejected due to a too long author's note (amongst some other things. Don't think that the mods have treated me unfairly :p ). So I figured out that I could use this space to say all those things I wanted to say regarding each chapter, but that I couldn't. I warn you though, that they may contain spoilers, so only read them if you have already read the chapter.

-Chapter 1: The very first chapter (duh). I really gave a lot of thinking to this chapter, deciding if this was the way I wanted to start the story or not. I've read many stories that start with something very close to World War III, but I thought I'd prefer to start with some introductory chapters.

This chapter's purpose was to give heads up to the readers about Harry's current train of thoughts and feelings towards... everything.

-Chapter 2: Well, just for the record, I updated my lousy summary for something that is hopefully better :)

Ah, this chapter... the last 'introductory chapter' (at least in my mind. Still, this chapter hints about some... stuff that will later appear). You also get to know what's happened to Hermione and the Weasleys, what are their thoughts, etc.

Ah, I almost forgot! In this chapter you see a somewhat emotional Hermione that has a certain redhead in her head ;) Now, I'm aware that some could consider her OOC. However, I do not think she is OOC because she is a girl after all, and (in my mind) she is simply sometimes more sensitive.

In this story I'll try to show that other side the books don't show: Ron and Hermione's POV. I've always thought of Hermione as someone who, whilst it can cost her some trouble, is sensitive to her feelings. That's why I added her thoughts regarding Ron :) That's all for now (or until chapter three gets approved!).

-Chapter 3: It is not up yet, but I just wanted to explain why it has taken me such an awfully long time to put it in the site.

One reason I cannot explain at the moment... I know, I'm not being mysterious at all. It's just that I can't really say at the moment, but I will tell you as soon as I can. The next reason is that I had to find a beta! Fortunately, I'm very pleased with whom I now have the honour to work with :) And finally, the last reason is that I rewrote the whole chapter. The problem is that with the old version I never was completely pleased. Now though, I'm more than pleased with the new version! Right now it is at hands of my beta, and I'll submit it as soon as I get it.
