My initial forays into Fanfiction land were focused on Remus Lupin. While I still love him, I quickly discovered the depth to which I had been neglecting Severus Snape. I was shown just how many layers one can invent for him, he never ends and I adore him. I've also discovered that I find angst deeply fascinating and that is mostly what I read. I can handle humor based fictions in small quantities, but anything parody like is not what I want. Therefore, my ridiculously long favorites list if filled with Snape or Lupin centric angst stories, with the occasional story that is immensely well written even without the inspiration of the above.
A Note on Reviews: Words form five percent of communication. Thus, it can be incredibly difficult to express oneself properly in the vast sensory deprived zone of cyber space. I would never seriously insult an author or imply that they are remiss in not updating. If I ever appear to do so I'm joking. Things like sarcasm and humor can be totally lost between two people who have absolutely no actual contact with one another, and thus no knowledge of their mutual natures, or the vocal or physical variety necessary to explain what those naked texts mean. Smiley faces can only be used so often before becoming utterly ridiculous.
All that to say, if I have ever offended anyone or made a current distress more difficult to bear it was never my intention. I sometimes forget that what I type in a bubble filled frame of mind may be interpreted painfully otherwise to someone in a different mood.
My favorites list is too long. It's becoming ridiculous, not that it matters since I'm the only one who probably ever looks at it. Nevertheless, I'm going to stick the names of completed fics I adore here since I mostly use my favorites to keep track of updates to wonderful stories
River Styx, Harry Potter and the Daughter of Light, Oblivious, Once in a Blue Moon, Veiled Revelations, Symphony for Quartet, and A Different Sort of Peace.
