Right, so something about me. I'm 19, I'm about to begin my second year at University, and I am a Politics student. Hobbies? Well I love to read, I like rock climbing, gig-going (but for a select few bands), drinking tea (earl grey, milk - no sugar) and writing.

I am a Snape addict, a circumstance introduced and encouraged by the writings of Vocalion, EllieK and Grainne.

I am the proud beta of the following authors:

Little Loony
the nutty imp
Piper Alexis

I'm sorry if I haven't included you and I beta for you - I will add you!

AS for writting heres how the updates go for the stories I have posted:

Between The Realm of Dreams And Reality: I recently posted a chapter... however, nothing has been written since, I'll start working on it as soon as an idea pops into my head.

To Shatter the Soul of a Slytherin: I have most of chapter two written, its awaits an ending, but will probably be up soon.

Play the Game... of Love: Doesn't have anything written for the next chapter, I'm afraid. Though I've had a little inspiration.

Lost in Time: Is moving along nicely, I have part of the next chapter written, I'm just deciding how something should happen, and where it should go from there, The stroy itself is actually coming to a close and will probably have two or three more chapters left.

Tom Riddle and the Half Blood Prince by Zetera

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Parody of the Harry Potter series written and completed before the release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. It looks at the lives of some of the major characters as they wait impatiently for book six to arrive. Naturally, chaos ensues. Suitable for all.

Winner of the first annual Quicksilver Quills Award 2006 for best humor fiction. Thank you!

*Sobs rackingly into hands* I have not cried so much since I watched Father Ted! That was fantastic, I will have the image of Voldemorts picture stuck in my head until my dying day! Brilliant! I loved it -- I love you! Don't ever let it end!

Author's Response: Oh wow, thanks! I LOVE FATHER TED! It's sooo hilarious. Thank you so much, but the story, unfortunatley, must end, though I forsee it reaching ten chapters at this point. Don't quote me on that though!

***"Hmm...I have my suspicions, Miss. Granger. Of course, I will not reveal them until the end, when it is far too late. *** that was brilliant, you had me in fits of laughter yet again... you really should publish it... it will reduce the population to tears of laughter... again you have done it! Well done!

Author's Response: I'd love to publish it actually, I mean, Barry Trotter did it....hmm...just need to make contact.

I feel myself become more and more heartbroken for the youngest of the black's. I think that you've written it well, the conflict of personality is extremely well presented, the dilema between being what people want and being who he wants to be is shown realy well. I did lie it but it made my heart sink, I'm afraid I shall have to read on.

Having read that I feel such a strong wave of pity and guilt. It's never a pleasant situation to be in, and I think at some point everyone feels the temptation to do as regulus did. Its hard, it always is. Well done, I think you wrote that extremely well, considering what it was.

Author's Response: Thankyou a lot! You know I really appriciate these review! I try to make it more realistic so people know what it's like so they wont do it! I've just submitted chapter 3 so hopefully it'll get accepted. In chapter three you lot will have to tell me if it's moving a long to fast, i'm hoping it will finish sometime between chapter 6-10. Depends really. Thankyou lots!

Potter's Bar by Grainne

Summary: Harry Potter, while drinkwalking in Sheffield, stumbles onto his Potions master's secret hobby. It involves lots of...little colored balls?
Reviewer: Orlaith Signed
Date: 01/18/05 Title: Chapter 1: Potter's Bar

I'm afraid that was bloody brilliant!

Author's Response: (Please, don't be afraid...) Cheers for reading, reviewing, and being a responsible consumer of bad snooker humor!

Squidbait Returns by Grainne

Rated: Professors •
Summary: This is the tale of what happens when a war-weary Auror returns to Hogwarts only to find that one last battle awaits...in the form of Potions master Severus Snape. A romance with healthy doses of humor, angst, and Quidditch!
Reviewer: Orlaith Signed
Date: 07/20/05 Title: Chapter 32: The Return of Squidbait

Now see here you naughty vixen, you! Grainne! I fell prey to your tantasiling drawings or writings of dear Severus - just how many young women have you converted to Snape fans. Steadily, throught the reviews of this story (and Vocalions too) there are numerous people professing their love for the former Potions Master and turning away from some other poor character. I think you're evil - but you do this so well...

Author's Response: Ahem, I believe the correct expression would be...MWUHAHAHAHA! Yes, no? Now, this tickles me, as I don't write Snape half so dashing and alluring as some authors do, and I'm sure that neither Vocalion nor I would actually advocate falling in love with the man (I mean, really, our main characters have more than enough trouble with him), but if they have turned away from "some other poor character," in favour of a more in-depth look at one Severus Snape, well, I say HUZZAH! That man bears watching, woudn't you agree? He's a sneaky one. Cheers, Orlaith; you don't know how fun it is to be called a vixen!

I liked the subtlety this chapeter runs with, dear old Snivellus, what ever will he do next. Ps - I swear I din't pick me penname for it's meaning, I just...liked it..ha, toatally unconvincin, eh?

Author's Response: It is a fine name, and I am sure you deserve it...thank you for reading & reviewing!

Oh thank you for adding this now, I'm just about to go off to my miserable job for the rest of the day, I think I'm much more prepared now. Snape is absolutely delightful, It looks like today isn't going to be so bad after all!

Author's Response: I am so pleased that you count reading this story as one of the good parts of your day! That said, I hope miserable job wasn't as bad as you thought it would be (and that, if it was, you oozed sarcasm, snarkiness, and scorn to all dunderheads in true Snape fashion!) Cheers!

I've been putting off reading this untill in great need. I'd say that an afternoon of essays on the office of the US president constitutes that, and good god I was rewarded! What a fantastic chapter. But then I'd expect nothing less. What is Mr Fairven doing in Egypt really? You've got the old ticker clicking again! The sentimental Snape moments were spot on -- but I think even he knows its love... After reading this I thought I could rather see myself in Athene... or maybe I'd just LIKE to be her... well, hmmm. For Snape -- anything! El Magnificent! Thank you for brightening my boring day!

Author's Response: This has brightened my whole week, Orlaith! You poor dear, all those essays about...*cough, cough, hack* Mr. Fairven, filled with remorse, has gone to visit his nephew Ben (Athene's old ABFAB partner). But you never know with him, do you? Thank you!

I very nearly choked to death on my tea, what a brilliant chapter! I absolutely adored :A few of the older girls, after observing their Potions master slather jam lovingly on his toast or curl his lips around a forkful of bacon, found themselves having odd fantasies throughout the morning. and can say nothing but AMEN! I'm definately in that boat...I think the closest death call was perhaps The Boy Who Lived Quite Well These Days.As ever bloody brilliant! Well Done!

Author's Response: Oh my! This chapter seems to be provoking some violent reactions! I am glad you survived to leave me this lovely review...and remember, while it is perfectly acceptable to fantasize about Snape eating a forkful of bacon, fantasizing about Snape while you are eating a forkful of bacon might prove hazardous to your health!

Beautiful, things really are getting of the grounds aren't they? I'm gad you put fred and george and the fireworks in, they really made it a treat! Can't wait for more!

Author's Response: Thanks for being such a faithful reader/reviewer. Fred & George award you oodles of style points!

Absolutely Outrageous! I was roaring my head off throughout. I thought you're Hagrid was brilliant, you're meddling Dumbledore even better, and Haryy just ... brilliant. Snape deserved that, and the dancing, well, I couldn't have put it better myself, the jump was fantastic... and those puns... well, lets just say I was nearly in tears whilst shaking my head at how incredibly lame they were -- I loved it. I'll save the next chapter until tomorrow.. I can't wait!

Author's Response: Cheers, Orlaith! Glad someone else "appreciates" Christmas cracker humour! I hope you are well, and enjoy the end of the story.

Date: 03/07/05 Title: Chapter 23: Appreciation

HOORRAAH! I am so pleased that's all cleaned up, and even more pleased that dear Severus is happy! Kingsley Shacklebolt...well I never! But I can totally see it! I'm still of the opinion that you could keep this going forever (I will be ever so Snape-ish when its over!) I feel like the end is near...please prove me wrong!

Author's Response: We are much nearer the end than the beginning, but there are a few more plot wrinkles to iron out, and Snape, well...is Snape. He is no longer in complete denial about his feelings for Athene, but he has a ways to go before I'll bugger off and trust him not to cock up the relationship! Thanks, Orlaith!

Date: 02/07/05 Title: Chapter 14: Base Instincts

That was absolutely brilliant! The weirdest thing is I can totaly see Sveverus doing that, I mean "taking in every detail of the room" and commiting it to memory. This story has so much going on for it i find it hard to tear my eyes away! Thank you again, for being such a wonder!

Author's Response: Thank you--I was worried that scene might seem a little sappy for Snape, but he had just...well...you know. Glad it worked!

Date: 02/23/05 Title: Chapter 21: Athene's Confession

Aww -- that was lovely, I love Snape even more after this -- I love ABFAB, that was I'm afraid to say, the icing on the cake! Brilliant. Well, I'm afraid I want more? D'you want to drop a few hints as to what'll happen next? Go on...make our day!

Author's Response: Normally I don't like to give too much away, but for you, Orlaith, and only for you...and only because I am chuffed the ABFAB joke was appreciated (That show is DIVINE!), I will say this... Snape will get a chance to flex his evil thespian talents for a very good cause. Eh?
