Bio:
Hello, hello! Not much to say about me, I guess; I'm a bored college student majoring in languages and history. I write stories when I don't want to write papers.

I've always been really interested in the backstories of the Marauders and Lily, especially after Book 5. It seems like most fics start with them in year five or so, when Lily already hates James and it seems there's no way they can reconcile. But I think that it certainly wasn't always like that. So I wanted to explore the whole group dynamic, and what happend in all seven years at Hogwarts. That's how Of Cauldrons and Comrades came about. Of course, with all the new goodies we learned about in Book 7, I will be needing to do some tweaking to the story, so updates might be sparse, but I do hope you enjoy!


I've recently gotten into Challenges over at the Beta Boards, so you'll see new fics cropping up every now and again. Here's the (albeit short) list so far:

The Beginning is a ballad written for the Poetry, Anyone? ballad challenge, and it's just a little "what if" story about one of Harry's ancestors. Update: "The Beginning" won first place in the challenge! I'm speechless! And it was so fun to write, too.

Remorse, Regret, Redemption was written for the New Year Challenge prompt on "Belief." What happens to a wizard who has stopped believing in his ability to do magic? Can he ever regain that power, that faith? This is from Gideon Prewett's POV--a totally random choice, I know, but very interesting to write. Definitely the darkest thing I've ever written, though. Update: "Remorse, Regret, Redemption" won second place in the challenge! Good job, Gideon. I knew you could do it! :)

He's Free is another challenge entry (I'm obsessed!), this time for the Character Sonnet Challenge. A Petrarchan about one of my favorite characters, Remus.

My Summer Challenge Triwizard Tournament Tale is called These Three Remain, after the ubiquitous Bible verse (1 Corinthians 13:13). It has very little to do with the actual verse, but the language of that verse is so pretty. The "three" that remain are the qualities faith, hope, and love. I've assigned a quality to each of the three central characters/narrators of the story, and now I'm chronicling their experience participating in and/or watching the Triwizard Tournament. Oh, and it's set in 1691-2, and deals not only with the Tournament but also with the imminent passage of the International Statute of Wizard Secrecy. Update: TTR tied for third place in the challenge! The fact that I haven't finished the final chapter is killing me, so I promise, promise, promise that it will be completed soon, lest I lose my mind!

I love to talk to readers/reviewers/fellow HP nuts, so if you have anything at all to say, please email or IM me!
