Bio:

Hello and welcome to my author page.

A little bit about me: My name is Lei, and I am a 19-year-old college sophomore pursuing a degree in English and Political Science. I am currently based in Canada, but I am originally from the Philippines and I have traveled extensively up and down the east coast of the United States. My biggest, most ambitious dream is to backpack across Europe and get paid to write while traveling all over the world.

Some of you may remember me as a moderator for Mugglenet Fan Fiction. From the fall of 2005 to the fall of 2006, I served on staff as the category mom for James/Lily and as a frequent dabbler in Marauder Era, Harry/Hermione, and Dark/Angsty. Concurrently, I also served as Hufflepuff's prefect on the Beta Forums with PhysicalGraffiti as my Head of House. I left moddom when I was 16, but returned a year later to help with the release of Deathly Hallows. I've not been back since then.

My works: I write mainly about the Marauders, especially Remus and Sirius, but I've also written a couple of Trio era fics. My favourite pairings to read and write are Harry/Hermione (proudly delusional!), Remus/Lily, Remus/Hermione, and James/Lily. I almost always write dark and angsty material, and I can guarantee that in nearly all of my works, I do include sensitive matters such as strong language and substance abuse. Click and read at your own risk, and please exercise utmost discretion when you do.

Most of my stories on this site are very outdated, but I do have a couple of new one-shots, which are the ones I recommend you to start with if you are new to my writing. Such works are: Drink, Declaration, To Armageddon and Back, Butterflies and Hurricanes, Weight, and 'Tis the Night.

With regards to Clair De Lune, I have been on hiatus from working on it ever since I started college over a year ago. Rest assured that I have every intention of finishing it; however, it will take me a bit more time, given that I've been finding it extremely difficult to immerse myself in that universe again (not to mention that I tend to cringe at my earlier works, but I digress).

In the meantime, I've just posted the prologue and the first chapter of After the Agony, a chaptered dystopian story set nearly a century after Harry's death. Please do check it out and let me know what you think!

How to contact me: Please do not hesitate to shoot me an email or poke me on AIM (taintedVirtuoso) if you wish to speak with me. I also have a writing journal where I post outtakes and such other things that I cannot upload onto MNFF. All of this information can be found here on my author page.

Hope you enjoy reading my stories, and if you have time, please do let me know what you think in a review.

Be safe,

Lei.
