Hi. I've been gone for a while… Really would like to come back… Hope you'll welcome me when I do, I do want to update some of my stories and write some new ones.

Some info about me... My name is Maia, I'm 21 years old, I'm a human female and I love to write, especially HP fanfiction, and especially slash. Not all of my stories are SSPs, but a lot of them are.

I love writing, so it goes without saying that I also love reading. My favourite works of fiction apart from Harry Potter include The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud, His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell by Susanna Clark, Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman and The Temeraire Series by Naomi Novik.

My second love is music, and I don’t think I could live without it. As you will see, pretty much all my one shots are song-fics. Music inspires me in every way. My favourite bands include Tool, Sonata Arctica, Pink Floyd, Blind Guardian, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Nighwish, Placebo, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Led Zeppelin, Them Crooked Vultures, the occasional moment of Deerhoof and a whole bunch of others, mostly within the rock genre in one way or another. I am also a music student, and a singer. On my website, you can listen to some do my tunes, though most of them are bad live recordings, so don't give them too much weight.

I also love comic books, movies, TV shows, anime, pen & paper RPGs and all other manner of geekery. I am a dedicated Mac user (or iWhore, as we like to call ourselves) and I love all kinds of tiny gadgets and electronics that I gladly screw apart but can never put back together again. :)

What you will find here:


Maia in the Mirror:
This story is most likely discontinued. I haven’t really felt inspired to write it for some time, but I might pick it up again eventually. It started out as one of those “put myself in the Potterverse”-things, the main character is based on me and a lot of the other characters are based on my friends. In the end, however, it became too much work and I just don’t enjoy writing it as much as I enjoy writing other things.

Too Much Love Will Kill You:
This was meant as an alternate ending to my one shot Bohemian Rhapsody, and was supposed to be about ten chapters long. The bunny ran away from me, and I had to follow, and now this story is halfway along and already nine chapters. It never turns out the way you meant it to… But I’m sticking with this one until the end. Harry/Draco is my OTP! ;)
And I know the title is a mouthful… I’m considering shortening it to just Too Much Love, but I’m thinking it might be a little late for that now.

Severely Moonstruck:
Severely Moonstruck is my first attempt at writing a particular pairing I’ve grown quite fond of lately. The whole story started with a tiny conversation in TMLWKY and grew from there. For those who were wondering whom Remus’ secret lover was, this is the story where you find out. Actually it’s not much of a secret… I think everyone has figured out what ship this really is by now, anyway…

Short Stories:

A Night at the Opera Series

This is a series of one-shots all based on songs from Queen’s album A Night at the Opera. I wrote them as a personal challenge, to see if I could find a Potterverse plot to every song on the album. I almost got there. I have bunnies for all of them except Good Company. We’ll see if I ever bother to write them all down… A Night at the Opera consists of the following stories:

Death on Two Legs (slash)
This is the second Snape-centred story I ever wrote. The first one I’m afraid was taken down from this site (it was a one-shot with rape in it, and it was decided that these were not allowed by our lovely modlies), however this one remains.

Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon
This story has a very rare main character: Fudge. It’s actually more like a monologue than a story… I might be entirely alone, but I actually felt a little bit sorry for Fudge in HBP. Yes he was arrogant and foolish, but to err is human, as they say, and in the first chapter of HBP, Fudge admits his mistakes.

I'm In Love With My Car
You know, I always wondered what the back story was with the Ford Anglia… Since we get no real explanation, I decided to write my own version. Only piece of humour I’ve ever written, apart from a few drabbles. It really isn’t my forte…

You're My Best Friend
I swear to Godric, I really meant to write a Ron/Harry, for a lark. I just couldn’t do it! So I wrote a fluffy little friendship fic instead. :)

Thirty-Nine (slash)
Here’s the only Sirius/Remus I’ve ever written, at least the only one purely so. I used to fancy myself a Wolfstar shipper, but lately I’ve decided that what Remus truly needs is someone more sensitive. Sirius is too brash and blunt for Remus. Anyway, this is a grief fic, which is one of my other favourite genres.

Bohemian Rhapsody
And this is the story that started it all. Two “alls”, actually. It was the first fic I wrote for A Night at the Opera, and it’s what started TMLWKY. This one is much sadder, but in a way I prefer this ending, because I like tragedy, and I like relationships that don’t work out. I like to see them fail, especially with Harry/Draco. When I say it’s my OTP, I’m really lying a little, because I have no delusions of it ever working out… I just find the dynamics interesting, the idea of it all. That’s why I write it.

The Tool Song Fics:

For those who know me, I don’t think I need to say that I love Tool. This band has given me so much. Their music has given me whole new thoughts and ideas and literally changed changed my life, I recommend everyone who is into any sort of more complex and progessive music to give them a listen. There’s nothing else quite like them in the world.

This story is based on the song 10,000 Days from Tool’s album by the same name. Maynard wrote it for his mother, Judith Marie, after she finally died after years of pain caused by a stroke. She was a Methodist (if I remember correctly), a good Christian and a remarkably selfless and good person. The songs Wings for Marie and 10,000 Days are Maynard’s thoughts after this loss, and the hope that if there is a God, Judith Marie has indeed got her wings, because no one deserves them more than she. I wanted to write a fic based on it, because death and grief are subjects close to my heart. My father died when I was eleven, and I too desperately cling to the hope that he is in a better place, and that he’s looking down on me and watching me.

Vicarious is a song which represents what I really like best about Tool; the cynicism, the idea that there is no hope for mankind. It’s not that I necessarily believe this myself, but sometimes I wonder. With all the bad things that go on in this world, can people really be inherently good? It also focuses on the hypocrisy of that which is politically correct, as they say. Because there is a certain fascination to the macabre, to death and war and suffering. That’s why we watch horror movies. But it’s not politically correct to admit it. That’s what it’s all about.

I love this song. Schism gives me thing special feeling; the instrumentation is amazing, the lyrics are absolutely fantastic… It’s so special to me that I felt it was the perfect song to use to illustrate poor Dumbledore’s relationship with Gellert Gridelwald and with Aberforth. Schism is about lost love, lost feelings, pieces fallen way… I don’t think I can explain it in any other way.

This story is based on the song Stinkfist, from Tool’s album Ænima (1996). There should be no surprise as to why I chose to change the title. Stinkfist is an amazing song. I think that if you want to know what a person is really like, look at what kind of music can move them. Surprisingly enough, this song moves me deeply. If you read the lyrics, this information will probably creep you out a little… Anyway, the story is about dear old Remus, and his problems coping after the deaths of Lily, James and Peter, and the revelation that it was Sirius who murdered them. It is a story about what that kind of pain can do to a person’s soul, how it can take away all feeling, and how that damage can be lessened by connecting with another human being, in the right way, if only for a moment.

The Patient
The Patient is another of my favourite songs. Quite apart from the beautiful music (I just love 5/4, don’t you?), the lyrics take my breath away. It occurred to me a while ago that this song really applies to Neville’s situation in a unique way. In the books we see the really brave side, the loyal side of him; how he loves them so much even though they barely know who he is. But even heroes feel discouraged at times. I guess I just thought that Neville must at some point grow weary of it all, and that’s when this idea popped into my head. Hope people like it; I appear to be writing a lot of grief fics lately… I’m the queen of angst! Yes! :P

What you can expect in the future:

I have a few more Tool fics in mind that I will write and post. I might get back to A Night at the Opera and Maia in the Mirror eventually, but for the time being I will focus on TMLWKY and SM, and on my original fiction.

Thanks to all my betas, who have helped make these stories possible! Thanks also to all the banner makers who have made me beautiful banners for my stories!

Extra special thanks to Bridget for being a nazi when it’s needed, Kelsey for being ever supportive, all the wonderful and brilliant moderators of MNFF and last but not least, my better half for allowing my obsession.

Thank you all!

Blue Eyes Reflecting by Vindictus Viridian

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Originally for October Challenge 6: Romance: write a 'ship you don't necessarily support. In his fourth year, Draco discovers that the Malfoy prejudice against Weasleys may have a flaw. Alternate warning: outright lewd.
Draco smiled, the smile that charmed people into doing what he wanted, and opened the door of an unused classroom. Ron showed no signs whatever of cooperation. Draco upgraded the smile to ‘challenging’ and walked in himself, then waited, leaning casually against a desk. It might not work this time, but eventually…

Oh my God, so utterly sweet. I do love it. Very nicely written. This isn't a pairing I thought I would ever like, but you make it seem sort of natural, so I really liked this. Great work!

Author's Response: *waits for someone to come down on \"natural\" like a ton of bricks...* Thanks for the review! I\'ve gotten very fond of this pairing with time, despite some doubts at the time of the challenge.

In the Eyes of Others by Vindictus Viridian

Rated: Professors •
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.

Reviewer: MaiaMadness Signed
Date: 06/11/06 Title: Chapter 46: Afterward

My goodness, this was long!

I have read through the entire thing in the last few days, and now that I have had some time to process it, I must say that I am very impressed! Impressed to the point where I am a hair away from considering this canon. c(= Really great, great work. I'm rather stunned, really. It was very sad, and very touching, and also very funny at times (I laughed hard and the sinister/left-handed pun, partially because it was funny, and partially because I actually got it).

I think the way you portrayed Severus' personality was amazing. He is an infinitely complex character to fathom, but you somehow manage. I understand that you have studied him thoroughly and you really know your stuff. The only mistake is his birthday, which is January 9th, according to the Lexicon. Howeverm this is a trivial matter indeed, and not very important.

I love his wand! I assure you that it is a complete coincidence that your Severus and my OC in one of my fanfics both have rather long Ebony wands; I had not yet read your fic when I made that decision.

The Severus/Lily idea is intriguing, and something I'm sure many of us have concidered, though I have yet to come across anyone who writes it quite as well as you. You make it seem very realistic, and the bit about the Unbreakable Vow does make perfect sense in every way.

I did hear somebody suggest that it was Lily, and not Severus, who was the brains behind the Half-Blood Prince's notes, but I never really found the plausible. I have no problem imagining her to have helped, though.

Long review... It's one o-clock in the morning, so bedtime is in order. Really great fic, I loved and adored it, and the last paragraph took hold of my heart with a hook and pulled painfully, because I know that Harry did not show a talent for seeing as Lily would see. :'( Sad, sad, sad. But good!


Author's Response: The long review is indeed greatly appreciated! I couldn\'t find a single solitary word on his birthday when I was looking (last July) and made one up that worked with my plot. All I found was that Jan. 9 was St. Severinus\' Day, which is not necessarily the same thing at all. Ah well.

He certainly does seem to have his own brains, and his complexity was part of the fun. I\'m very flattered that you think I did them well, or that I took dictation well, or however it is that fiction really works...

The Levitated Corpus of Newton Carter by Vindictus Viridian

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: For a nonverbal spell to be known all over school requires a special event. To become immune to that spell requires a second one. This is a spinoff story for the OC Newton Carter, who is introduced in In The Eyes Of Others.
As a Slytherin, he knew sooner or later his name would be on the pranking list of some or all of The Gryffindor Four. And sooner or later, he could count on being dangled upside-down by the ankle in a corridor, probably one where the whole school would be passing in a few minutes to critique his legs, his weight, and his choice of pants.

I love this. It's a brilliant idea.

Have I mentioned that I for some strange reason really love Carter's character? I posted a question for you in your Duelling Club thread about him. He somehow interests me deeply. Good OC, there.

Author's Response: Ooh! A Maia review! *happy* Thanks! I giggled madly through writing this one-shot. Sometimes the Marauders need some kind of comeuppance, after all. I\'ll have to dream up some more about Carter one of these days, won\'t I?

Little Ratty Paws by Vindictus Viridian

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Have you ever gotten halfway through an experimental kiss and realized that yes, this really was a good idea? Remember, it's the quiet, mousy ones you should look out for...

Sirius comes back from a Marauder jaunt with a sleeping rat curled up in his hair and a mood that won't quite go away.

A whiskery nose poked lightly at the side of Sirius’ jaw. Little ratty paws laid their claws lightly on his neck. Peter was awake and hoping for a little help changing back. Sirius held still and kept his breath regular. A small paw settled on his cheek. Sirius thought Peter could bloody well leave him alone and go back to sleep, since finally he was relaxed.

The pointy nose suddenly plunged into his ear and snuffled furiously, whiskers vibrating. Sirius wasn’t particularly ticklish, but everyone has limits. Sirius discovered his with a stifled yelp. “All right, all right!” he hissed, and fumbled for his wand. Pointing it over his shoulder, he performed the spell to help Peter back to his normal shape.

Date: 06/02/06 Title: Chapter 1: Little Ratty Paws

I love it! True, it is an unusual pairing, but I see nothing wrong with it. After all, it's from before Peter went bad. He was one of the Marauders, so this is no worse than any other Marauder pairing, methinks. I really loved the plot and the way you portrayed the characters. Very nice. And very sweet. I loved the fumbling; it's so unrealistic when people make the characters sex-gods on the first try.

Peter sighed. Severus was acutely aware of the sigh moving against his back.

Was this a mistake? I'm asuming Severus was meant to be Sirius... Just thought I'd point it out.

Author's Response: Eek! Ack! Yes, thanks for catching that! I\'d like for all parties involved to keep speaking to me, especially Severus. Thanks for the review! It\'s greatly appreciated. And many giggles to the first-try observation, too.

Ariel and The Triwizard Cup by Purplemage

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: Get inside Ariel Sachs' head as he tries to survive his last year at Hogwarts. The Triwizard Tournament is going to be hosted once again after twenty-three years and Ariel is going to find himself in the middle of it. He soon learns that in love and war anything goes and that things are not always what they appear. A story of jealousy, gossip, teenage hormones and first love. (Rated for later chapters)

Date: 07/06/06 Title: Chapter 8: Jacqueline Duchamps

Great chapter! Jacqueline absolutely fascinates me; she's very interesting. I loved the comment about Taylor's dad (Mr Wimund wants to know, lol). The letter was hilarious, and the detail about the front page of the magazine made me laugh out loud. I have a few friends who are obsessed with Gothic Lolita fashion, and that skinny Asian girl made me think of their hidious magazines (though there are some really nice dresses in there).

My mother was the Fashion Editor of ‘Glitter’, the most famous fashion magazine for witches.

Is there any wonder Ariel is gay? Lol, just kidding, but that did get me thinking. =P

As much humour as you manage to incorporate here, it confuses me that your humour fic was rejected... I'm looking forward to readinf it and sincerely hope I can help.


Author's Response: Jacqueline is a very interesting character! There\'s a lot more to her than meets the eye. Gothic Lolita Fashion? I think I know what you\'re talking about, but I\'m not a 100% sure. Anyway, I\'m glad you liked the idea of the magazine. Well, the humor I use in Ariel is diferent from the one I used in the other fic. This is more subtle and tasteful, the other one is more in your face kind of humor. Thanks for the review!

Nice first chapter, you've got me interested! I like the way you portay the characters, and the story about how Ariel's parents met was uber-sweet! I will now read further.

Author's Response: I\'m happy you like my characterizations. I have a lot of fun with these characters and sometimes they have fun with me >.> but that\'s another subject. For me it was important to include the parents because so many people ignore them and they are an important part of most people. Thanks for the review!

Nice twist with the guy showing up with that fourth school. Predictable (I was thinking he'd be from Durmstrang or something) but a good idea, and like I said, a nice twist. Anyway, not everyone is quite as perceptive as I am, lol!

Date: 06/20/07 Title: Chapter 14: On a Night like this...

I can't believe I still hadn't read this chapter... I just reread the whole story in one sitting, actually.

Yay! Action! I've kind of fallen away from fanfictioin lately, mostly because of school. But I've been reading a whole lot of yaoi manga, and then I realised I hadn't checked up on this story in quite a while. So, yes.

A kiss! Wonderful! I loves it!

I'm sorry I have nothing more constructive to say. It's been a really long day and it's 2 am. I'm going to bed...

But great chapter! I particularly loved the ending. And Jacqueline's closet. And the comment about the closet. And the perfume drawer. The bit with Jacqueline was generally good.

So, is Bahir and Sahlah siblings or something?

About the squirrel-egg comment a few chapters ago, btw. True, funny story:

Someone I talked to on the web told me about an ex-girlfriend of his. They were staying in the country on this farm and were having breakfast. She was taking butter and milk out of the fridge, looked at the butter, looked out the window at the cows that were grazing outside, and looked at the butter again before saying to her boyfriend, utterly seriously, "So, if milk comes from cows... Where does butter come from? Like... a duck?"

He replied, "What, you mean, like a duck's egg?"

"Yeah," she said, clearly thinking she was onto something. He started laughing, and the next day she dumped him. Something about him not respecting her feelings.

Author's Response: Yay! Maia! I\'m very happy you liked this chapter. And yay for yaoi manga! I have a small collection myself. Oh my god, that story about the butter. It\'s just too funny. You have no idea how much it made me laugh, heck I\'m still laughing. It\'s something Berenice would say. Thank you so much for the review!

I love the story, and hope you'll update again soon. I wanna know what happens next! :)

Date: 08/26/06 Title: Chapter 10: Isaac

My goodness. Very interesting chapter, this. Very good. Much suspense.

I very much love the way you describe Ariel's feelings. You know, those feelings of inadequacy you get when facing someone you're truly in awe of. When you first fall in love with someone, it's so strong that you really worship that person. You describe this so well by having Ariel so nervous. About making a fool of himself, the hole in his sock, sweaty hands, etc. It's all very realistic, and that's what I love about Ariel's character, and this story.

Still, though, Bahir is a rather scary character, because at this point in time we don't know where we have him. What's up with him and his school, really? And the whole dream thing is very exciting and thought-provoking. I'll be looking forward to the next chapter very much.

On a different note, I seem to be liking Nessa less and less. She reminds me so much of these self-centred people I've been around my entire life. I hope she'll shape up a bit eventually, because I have a feeling that Ariel doesn't think much higher of her than I do at present.

Update again soon, you hear? I'll be waiting. :)

Author's Response: I\'m glad you like how I describe Ariel\'s feelings. He\'s defeetly not the person that feels confident on a first date. Coming from you that means a lot. Bahir is an interesting character for sure and a bit tricky to write. Nessa is a bit full of herself right now, but don\'t worry it won\'t last long. Thank you for the wonderful review!

The Bahir moment at the end was brilliant. Ariel is so cute when he's in love! Have I mentioned I love his character? But, oh my, I wonder how Christian would react if something were to happen between Ariel and Bahir? You don't know what you've got till it's gone, they say, and I doubt you introduced his character if there wasn't more to it...

Can't wait for the next chapter and the "date". Till then!


Author's Response: \"Poor thing. It\'s not her fault she\'s stupid\" LOL, you have no idea how much that made me laugh. Ariel in love? Who says so? hehe, and you\'re right about Christian, I didn\'t just introduce him. The next chapter is going to be a good one, promised. Thanks for the review!!

And Ivy and Christian broke up, huh? And why did she glare at Ariel like that? Is Christian perhaps not as heterosexual as we were led to believe...? And if that is the case, what about Bahir?

Can't wait to read more. darling, this is absolutely wonderfully exciting!

Beautiful. I almost cried. I'm in an emotionally fragile state right now... damn...

Brilliant, though. I really liked it. I suppose you've seen the video, lol! I especially liked the ending, but the bit where Harry and Ginny are screwing and Ron shouts at them from the next room was hillarious. Ah, the feeling of thinking about someone else... It's incredible how much your fic matches my state of mind right now.

This was a brave fanfic, I think. This type of complicated love is a hard thing to write about, and you've nailed it. I really think it's absolutely brilliant.

Thank you for writing such a good fanfic. It made my day!

Bedtime by Vindictus Viridian

Reviewer: MaiaMadness Signed
Date: 07/27/06 Title: Chapter 1: A Story

I have a very apropriate word for this story: Aww! The idea of a little, scared Draco just makes my heart ache, know what I mean? I also think it's very beautifully written. And you can tell that despite thinking Draco is a spoiled, mean brat (which, naturally, he is), Severus is in his way rather fond of the boy. The characterisations are beautiful, but then again, I have always admired you for characterisation. You do it so well.

You might not stop to consider that if Lucius Malfoy makes a request of his closest friend, the correct answer, no matter how odious the task, is “Of course, Lucius.”

Says so much about Lucius, just that one paragraph. Lucius is the only character in the Potterverse whom I really don't think there's any underlying goodness to. Deep down, he's really shallow, and he really is really nasty. Gotta love him, don't you?

What else...? Well, good work in general, sweet story, cute Draco and wonderful characterisation about sums it up, so keep on writing! :)

Author's Response: Thanks! I like getting reviews from you; they\'re always so nice and rich. I don\'t like Lucius -- I mean, I really don\'t like Lucius. And yet here he keeps popping up in my stories, when I also don\'t like writing people I don\'t like. Pesky man.
