Bio:
I have been writing original fiction for several years. I seem to be particularly talented at starting novels and then not finishing them. Despite that, at this point I have four finished novels, several poems, and a few shorter stories.

I entered the world of fan fiction due to a post-HBP speculation I had about Regulus Black, Severus Snape, and the potion in the cave, which led to the one-shot story The Secret Papers of Regulus Black.

That story has inspired a sequel (still in progress) and two prequels, Damage Control and Loyaulte me lie.

As for challenges, I am occasionally inspired. The Prodigal Son is my response to the June 2007 One Shot Challenge, and features Percy seeking to reconcile with his family.

I also participated in the Summer 2006 Gauntlet challenge, with The Labyrinth of Lost Souls. Part of that story involved a riddle, which sparked my other posted one shot, The Logic Problem.

Both The Labyrinth of Lost Souls and The Prodigal Son won second place in their respective challenges.

I'm currently working on a long, self-indulgent work that's based on another fan fiction (and thus, will never be available for public viewing), the sequel to The Secret Papers of Regulus Black, and two Year 7/Post-Hogwarts stories that are very different from each other.

Due to my tendency to abandon works, I have decided not to upload any chapters of a given story until the entire story is complete.

The Papers Series (in chronological order based on plot):

The Secret Papers of Regulus Black - what started it all.

Damage Control

Loyaulte me lie (secretly my favorite) - second prequel (i.e. it happens after the events in Damage Control)




Stories not part of the Papers Series:

Labyrinth of Lost Souls - my second favorite.

The Prodigal Son

The Logic Problem

Summary: This is an alternate version of Book Seven. Harry reluctantly returns to Hogwarts to train with a new DADA teacher, one appointed in specifically for Harry in Dumbledore's will. As the rest of the Wizard World reacts to Dumbledore's defeat, Harry develops the skills he needs to fulfill the Prophecy--including mastery of the Kedavra curse.

Mysteries are explored along the way, particularly the "missing 24 hours" from 1981--the span of time between Hagrid taking Baby Harry from the ruins of Godric's Hollow on Halloween Night, and his arrival to hand off Baby Harry on Privet Drive the following night. The Veil Room in the Department of Mysteries is also revisited. A traitor is uncovered, and Dumbledore's wisdom comes into question. And even when all goes as planned, things are not all they seem.

Summary: Patrick Thatcher’s older brother teases him, his mother worries about him, and his father defends him. His family sounds very much like any other, but somehow Patrick’s is far from average. In Patrick’s world, adults disappear into thin air, owls deliver mail, and the most popular sport in the country is played on broomsticks. Not to mention that every member of his family is, and always has been, a wizard. When your grandfather is a famous American veteran, being a Thatcher isn’t the easiest life to live. When his acceptance letter to the most prestigious American school of magic arrives addressed to another student, Patrick’s position in his former world begins to take a tumble—right along with the newly elected President of Magic’s approval ratings. With the Wizarding world’s eyes shifting toward a new wizard, can Patrick figure out just why his first year is off to a rocky start? Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s wondrous Harry Potter Series, Patrick Thatcher’s adventures of wizardry in the United States is a tale all its own while still respecting its English origins. Readers are sure to find that the magic across the pond is just as unforgettable.

Summary: Severus has never seen the appeal of repetition, particularly of things that ended badly the first time. In his life, he has kept one pet, owned one broom, and had one close friend.

Winner of Mod Quicksilver Quill for Best Novel! Thanks, all!

Rating and warnings do not apply to all chapters; I just didn't want anyone hooked and then shocked.


"What is it?" His mother held out her hand, and he put the letter in it wordlessly. "Are you eleven already?"

His father lowered the newspaper to look at the calendar. "Yesterday. ‘Appy birthday." And that was the end of that.

Summary: Warthogs is the reverse of Hogwarts. Everybody's personality is the contrary to in the books. It is a "humour fic" (If I even dare call myself funny) that tells the tale of the Final Battle. I wrote this because I was sick of writing depressing stories about unrequited love and death. It makes a light change to the rest of my collection.
