I'm a Harry Potter fan, well above the age of consent.
I grew up on the Great Prairies of Canada and I still find beauty in the vast emptiness of the prairie sky, even though I live far away now. I am absurdly over educated, having two Baccalaureate degrees and a Masters. I'll probably stick with what I am doing now though, which is software engineering. I have been reading and making things all my life.
I do love getting reviews, even on stories that have been out a while. Tell me what you think, what you like and dislike and help me grow. And *psst I usually do return reviews!

This story is canon-compliant with the Harry Potter universe, but the characters and settings are all original. I've put a lot of work into envisioning a world as detailed as the original series; I hope you enjoy it.
