I'm a Miss, no Mrs, that has always loved to write but never had the courage to do so. Muggle Net Fan Fiction gave me a bit of courage to finally actually write something. So please let me know what you think so my stories can grow.
My real name is Martine. I'm a 23 year old Cultural Studies student from the Netherlands. I hope to graduate soon but at the moment all I do is read and write fanfiction.
Besides reading and writing anything that has to do with the world of HP (believe me when I say that I don't shut up about it until you have at least read the books) I also love reading other stuff. Anything from SF like Dune (classic) to the Great Tragedies of Shakespeare (even more classics). From Kama Sutra (the original Indian texts) to Western fiction on Chinese women (hopefully the subject of my final thesis).
But I also have to breath in some fresh air now and again so twice a week I get up and go out to climb. Well actually I climb inside but whenever the weather allows you can find me hanging on the rocks. To top this love for climbing of I will also be on the board of the climbing association here in Maastricht for the next year.
Other than that it is movies, music, travelling, swimming, hanging out with friends, my boyfriend or family (not necessarily in that order) that keeps me going.
The stories that keep me going until HBP comes out, are mostly about Severus Snape. In the books my favorite character is Hermione (I simply adore intelligent people) but Alan Rickman has always been one of my favorite actors. And well Alan simply plays the ultimate Severus for me. I can't help it, that man simply oozes blackness and bad boy and the only thing I want to do is drown in it.
This doesn't mean I can't enjoy other stories, though I do tend to stick to the romance. I will also leave you a review, when I read something of yours and hopefully you will one when you read something of mine.
At the moment I only have one story online. A little fluff thing about Hermione and Snape (did you see that one coming?) I'm also writing a story about Draco and Hermione which is more angsty but has the potential to become a ship. Not sure on that one yet, but I'll probably start putting it online soon.
Well I hope you like what you read and maybe we will see eachother in our reviews.
It's almost painful and sad to see two people who love each other so much, keep their distance. It almost makes me ache with longing. Hopefully the next chapter will be a bit more cheerful.
I absolutely love all your stories. It's an old dream of mine to write and this story and Lestrange Days gave the final nudge to actually write something. Hopefully they will accept my first chapter. Thanks and keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad I was able to have some part in giving you the final push to get your work submitted. I have fun writing and I'm happy when I know people enjoy what I've written. Good luck with your story.
I wish I had writer's block like that....Ah what I wouldn't give for a summer of in depth potions with Severus, even if it is only in my dreams...
I completely agree with Harryluver, nothing more to add. Well maybe, please let Hermione fall for Draco soon........
I never thought of a Hermione/Remus ship before, but you make it work. It sounds good but be careful not to mess with the future too much, we still need Peter as the Secret-Keeper
Author's Response: Thank You ^_^

Almost all women would fall for Dracula and we know his love for a certain female. Dracula and Snape, the perfect combination. Although unfortunately Gary Oldman always seems to come to my mind and Sirius is no Snape.
Don't read if you are offended with rape and abuse. Contains events that will be quite offensive and possibly "disgusting". You have been warned.

~The story is now Complete!~
Thanks for reading!
Guilt is a very powerful emotion, but most people forget that guilt goes two ways. Relationships can occur because of it and you make it realistic enough.
Any story that makes me smile is a good story, and this one does me make me smile. I love it when Severus becomes confused because of a woman, it is nice to see he has a heart and a life afterall.
Author's Response: I've please to hear that. I really think that Severus has no clue about love. This is a bit of a learning curve for him. Thanks for the review!
I've noticed that your own work becomes a bit like your child, it is hard to see her grow up and go out into the world. I loved it even with Snape getting all mushy.
Author's Response: You've got that so right. It was hard for me to finish this because I really didn't want to. Of course the story was wirtten out so it had to end. Some people don't like Snape OOC, but I think the moment called for some major feelings. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Yes we all guessed, even the ending, it was good.
there is no choice at the end, not a definite one. I wonder how soon Severus will fully love him again.
The first time to read about such a ship, but it made me smile. You keep up the depression for Harry, just like JKR, but i'm sure you will lighten up his day in the end.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
I keep reading this story, everytime I'm in need of some Snape love making. Oh and Thank you. I told you earlier that you gave me that little nudge I needed to start writing and now my first two chapters are online.
It makes me smile, like any other Hermione/Snape ship would. I'm addicted to them and especially their love-making. Their is absolutely nothing better than a man giving you what you need.
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed this. I myself can't get enough of the pairing.
The perfect title for this perfect little story. It makes me kinda sad but smile at the same time. I simply adore Severus, and I want him to be happy.
I hate the position Hermione is in, but I feel so sorry for Draco and Pansy as well. Please continue.
Now this could be very interesting, well actually it already is. Snape being in love and proud as always, I wonder when he will crumble.
I've read till chapter 10, but it makes me smile, so i will read the rest and look out for other stuff you did. (This is a compliment by the way because normally i only read HG/DM or HG/SS)
Author's Response: I'm glad I got you to brach out. The pairings you like are Hermione/Draco or Hermione/Snape? I hope you are not to dissapointed in book six and seven from JKR then. I guess each to his/her own though. You should check out Secret Friends, by Harriet Evans. Ginny/Sirius. It might be up your alley. Thanks for reading, and I hope you like the rest of this.
It is different to see that for once Draco has amnesia instead of Hermione. It has potential, a lot of potential. Keep up!
