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.

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!

Possible the most down trodden chapter yet. But I still loved it, although something bordering on absolute annoyance. Poor old Athene, I find myself offering her sanctuary away from the greasy slimeball... Heheh I still love it...I've got a bad feeling abouthow I'm going to react to the end. You could just keep it going, to remedy that though... Well done again Grainne! You are most excellent!

Author's Response: Cheers Orlaith! Would love to know what caused the annoyance (Snape's behaviour? Athene's sad sap stories?)...such feedback is always useful. Athene appreciates your offer, but I think she is developing a penchant for grease;) !

'm quite intirgued, it's rather different from your average fanfic, I like the ideas you've put forward. I'm very much looking forward to the next instalment!

Author's Response: Thank you! The next installment has been added, but still needs a go-a-head from the editors.

I can't say I fully understood that chapter, but none the less I feel the need to know more, it's pulling things together then letting them fray. Without a doubt, your wonderful writing style was there throughout, please update soon. Curiousity did kill the cat...

Author's Response: The last chapter is confusing. However, it is important. Again, you are a dear! More to come...

She's like a more subtle, female version of Snape! Well, it leaves me feeling like I need to read on and find out what happens. I'm curious to say the least. Good Job!

Author's Response: That is a very interresting charaterisation of Miss Jones! I'm glad I have piqued your curiousity. More will arrive soon, perhaps tonight. Thank you!

You have perfected Snape completetly and utterly. Again you leave me wanting more, well done, this story promises to be a good read!

Author's Response: I worked really hard to keep Snape IC in this one. He is much more canon than in my other fic. This story will have a totally different feel than the other. I do hope you continue to enjoy! Thanks again!

That was excellent, I loved the way it could provoke so many different emotions and slide into them so smoothly. It definately explained a lot and I can just tell that there is loads more to come that will be just as addictive as these two chapters! I really cannot wait for more!

Author's Response: Thanks Orlaith, I'm reading your story about Liaden and Snape (So I know you're a great writer) and it's great to hear that you like my story!

Go Ron! I think Hermione's been a bit of a 'scarlet woman'....what a meanie, eh? But You've answered so much now...I wonder where it is leading to, I'm sure it's going to be even better than these, can't wait for more!

By the way I've updated..mods took a while on that one...

Wow! Your story is truly original, You had me on the edge of my seat throughout, I always saw Krum being a little dangerous...and as for the spy, I will be thinging about this at the most inconvienent points of the day -- I just know it. Well done on writing another fantastic chapter -- I cannot wait for more!

Author's Response: Thanks Orlaith! Things will start to get exciting now because I had to spend the first couple of chapters on a lot of backstory but now I go straight to the good stuff!

I cannot express in any language just how beautiful this story is. I thought that apart from the smooth flowing events and terrible situation you portrayed incredibly well. This is the most emotionally provoking fic I have ever read, It reduced me to tears the first time and it stil does! It is truly wonderful to see such amazing writing skills put to use. Well done Binks! You 've earn't a platinum star!

Fantastic! You write her so well. A true Slytherin to be sure. The description is to the point and enough to give the story a sound base. It's an interesting insight into Bellatrix's reasoning, I enjoyed it immensly. Cheers!

Author's Response: You're very kind (probably too kind, but I'll definitely take the compliment). I'm glad you liked it.

Is this the challenge I set you?

Either way it is fantastic! You should have PM'd me the link, I like the way you've used your own character rather than one we may have heard of in the book it's entirely believeable, and well formatted. I'm enjoying it much... I'm going to read on...

Author's Response: Thanks! Sorry, I'll PM it to you after I update it. I kind of went on spring vacation before I saw that it got through.
