Bio:
Welcome to my little corner of the world! If itís winter, bring a warm quilt or two and some hot cocoa. If itís summer, come in and cool down with an iced beverage or two.

Edit: March 2010 . . . I am now an accredited PI Beta! Thanks really should go to moonymaniac, MaraudersAffair and Auberus for providing me lots of practice . . . but I did it! Yay! (Now to figure out how to get the little pic/banner/thing they gave me to show up on here . . . help, anyone?)


Who am I? A quiet, shy one . . . you'll find me enjoying mysteries of the mind, delving inside to see connections made and new mysteries unraveled . . . what more would you like to know? I'm a hard-working woman by day and a dreamer by night, slowly writing her own work, though it may never leave the file cabinet of her mind. The insanity of my everyday life is on my LJ Ė feel free to browse there for the general chaos of my life.

What brought me to HP? I was well into adulthood when I began reading Harry Potter. My connections as a teacher made me aware of its existence and the arguments the book brought, but it didn't affect me or the students I was working with . . . until a chance encounter while browsing the web. I came across the speech/paper by Steve Tigner (which can now be found on HP Lexicon), a former professor of mine who introduced and developed my love of classic literature. Seeing his words about a "children's book" was the turning point in finally deciding to read the books. Since reading, they have re-ignited something long dormant: my love for words.

Why am I here? A summer between school years without a second job to occupy the time and the use of a computer led to diving into the online world, which ultimately led to the discovery of fanfiction. The passion for words flared to life, finding and thoroughly enjoying the stories that shared this passion. Though I have some favorites, do not let them deter you. Any story, regardless of subject, rating, warnings, and/or characters may catch my interest. I will give your fair warning: my background as a teacher makes me a bit of a tough critic. However, that same background loves to be impressed by awesome writing.

Remus remains firmly in my favorites where he has resided since PoA. Sirius is also in there , despite OotP and that snarky potions master, Severus, has snuck in, too. Each is a character that Iíve found myself personally relating to, something that comes out in the pieces I write. Marauders era stories have caught my attention, as well as a number of others Ė just donít ask me to pick ďoneĒ favorite (character, story, etc.). I canít do it. Although Iíve written and posted some Remus/Severus pairings, they are not the only pairing that my mind holds.

What will you find here? Words are my passion, be it spoken or written. The stories I create are ones of emotion, particularly the dark, difficult kinds. Fluffy is not what I do or write Ė if thatís your desire, I recommend going elsewhere. If youíre looking for something strong, then take a look.

Thanks for visiting Ė please feel free to come back! Visitors are always welcome, new friendships are always desired.
