Bio:
I am somewhat of a writer in real life, too, because I work for a newspaper. I have always written short stories just for the fun of it and when the Harry Potter virus infected my I started writing fan fiction before I knew fan fiction officially existed in the internet - yet there are very few stories that I deemed worth publishig to other fans.
By the way - I write in German.

Anything you read here from me was translated into English by PercyWeasel (who is German and speaks wonderful British English) and Ellen Fawkes (who is American but can switch to British English and speaks great German, too). Two other Brit guys then do another round of beta'ing.

Anyway, I hope you like my stories. Any reviews are welcome, both appraisals and harsh criticism.

Sooooo... and now for the work in progress. (update 7 August 2007)

I was going to publish a complex of three stories called the "Wisdom and War Trilogy".

This trilogy is HBP canon compliant, but AU to DH.

The first story centers around Minerva McGonagall, and the Order of the Phoenix, and it's based on a MMAD ship.
In this fic, Harry realises he cannot take the pressure alone and confides in some, few members of the Order about the Horcrux business. He also lets them see his memory of the moment when Dumbledore died. Watching the memory, Minerva realises that Snape acted on Dumbledore's orders when he killed the Headmaster. Unfortunately, no one believes her... Minerva has to struggle to prove both Snape's innocence and her own sanity. This fic ends with a cliffhanger, after all I want you to read the next two stories of the trilogy as well.

The problem is that I have - for various reasons - decided not to publish the trilogy here on mnff. Only the first chapter of the first story is up - so if you want a teaser, read the first chapter of "Madness of Minerva".
The rest of the story is already published (and, if I may say so, quite successfully so) on fanfiction.net. 'DailyProphetEditor' is my name there as well.

Fics two and three of the trilogy will be published on fanfiction.net only, mainly because fic three definitely is very NC-17 with lots of violence, death, and, ahem... consensual and non-consensual scenes of a sexual nature.

Fic two will tell of the events of the year 1997 in the WW, Voldemort's rise to power, the death of various members of the Order and the quests for (some) Horcruxes. This one is not a classical fic per se, but a series of letters and newspaper articles.

Fic three then is... well, the grand finale, and in novel length. Features Ginny Weasley as the main character, with sidekicks Snape and McGonagall. Lots of violence, lots of darkness. And a very tragic lovestory - Harry/Ginny and Snape/Ginny, need I say more?

I'll have to ask you to come to fanfiction.net and read my stuff there. I consider this trilogy my most important and best work so far, so I'd love you for some reviews. You don't even have to register there to give me feedback ;-)

--------------------------

There's some more background info I'd like to give you on my other, already published stories:

"A Death Eater's Diary" will always be one of my favorites, although I know not many people like reading about Bellatrix. She is one of my favorite characters, though. I frequently use Bella as the bad guy in my stories, but "Death Eater's Diary" is dedicated to her only and I hope that with this story I finally shed some light on that dark soul.

"Minerva McGonagall and the Half-Blood Prince" - well, that probably was the hardest task I set myself. I love that pairing, they work so well together characterwise.

Unfortunately almost every story about them tends to forget or deny the age difference... so I thought I'd give it a try and see if I could do better. You tell me if I succeeded and made it believable...

"The Murder of Emmeline Vance" is up now. This is the shortest fic I've done so far, really a little ficlet only.

IMHO the most difficult line in understanding the famous 'Spinner's End' chapter in JKR's HBP is when Snape mentions to Bellatrix that he is responsible for Emmeline's death - for anyone in the Snape-is-good-camp I think that one is even harder to explain than killing Dumbledore. So I decided to write a possible explanation for this claim of guilt... I am certain that JKR will come up with a different one, but this one is my take on things.

Summary: A Snape/Narcissa one-shot based on the song 'Tainted Love' covered by Marilyn Manson.

Love is such a confusing thing to Severus Snape and Narcissa Black. The two have found it in each other, but certain circumstances make it almost impossible for them to be together. Can they overcome these obstacles, or do they have a Tainted Love?

Hm. Hmmmm. I must admit I don't like songfics much, or fics based on songs. But this one did work out - wish you'd gone into more detail, I do like the Snape/Narcissa pairing very much. But anyway it's a pretty good story and I enjoyed reading it.

Good story!

The part where Neville saw Bella was quite scary, and the Neville-Augusta interaction was just beautifully realistic. Since Neville is one of my fav characters anyway I like stories about him generally, but this one is especially well-written. Can't wait to see where you'll take him.

 

Summary: What could lead someone to become so devoted to someone else that she would kill for him, torture for him, even endure 14 years of prison for him? Is that kind of devotion a sign of personal strength...or of weakness? A one-shot from Bellatrix Black Lestrange's point of view; after the end of OOTP she looks back on her life and wonders if she has made the right decisions.





This is my first fanfic of any kind. ^_^ Please R&R. [Note -- I wrote this before Book 6, so HBP and DH are disregarded.]

Date: 04/22/07 Title: Chapter 1: Reflections of the Dark Lord's Most Loyal Servant

Oh my, I love this fic. How come I never noticed it before? I love writing about the Black sisters, too, especially Bella. And this fic does so mirror what I thought after reading OotP and HBP, that Bella must have started reflecting about her true faith, but really she cannot leave the dark side because she has no one to turn to. (One point I wondered about, though, I thought Bella was older than Cissy? But it does not really matter.)

I loved the idea with the wand, that she has difficulties finding the right one. All of those childhood memories were well-chosen moments - the Sorting Hat's advice, and that part where Bella realises that she fears herself.

A very well-written piece, one of the best I've read so far!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for your comments! I\'m glad you liked it. And yes, Bella is older than Cissy, but that wasn\'t revealed until HBP and this was pre-HBP. I\'d have to go back and change a few things to make it compatible.

ALBUS AND MINERVA by Wiccan
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 71]

Summary: Yes, yes I know...the visual is enough to turn you off! (Run screaming and gagging in total disgust! Bleegggghhh!) Alright...get your minds out of the gutter! There will be no wrinkled old bodies wrestling and sweating in the throes of passion here. These are NOT hormonally driven teenagers. Rating is for subject matter only (I mean they actually mention the word…SEX! Horrors!). I have just often wondered if there wasn't something going on between these old fogies. JKR seems to hint at an intimate sort of playfulness between them and I decided to investigate that aspect. This is a one-shot complete character analysis. I hope you enjoy it and it doesn't give anyone nightmares. Let me know how you're sleeping...

I can so see Minerva acting "the Snape" when she gives Harry a stern mind-your-own-business-look...
I also liked that you actually mentioned the age difference, that Minerva really is a youngster compared to Albus. She is just NOT old by wizarding world standarts - it's nice that you made Albus acknowledge that fact.

Author's Response: IBeing a \'dirty old man\' would be no fun at all if he didn\'t have a younger woman! Thank goodness for the Lexicon...and for reviewers like you. Thanks!

 

Resolution by Vindictus Viridian
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 31]

Summary: "You did not come here to play chess."
On New Year's Eve, Minerva McGonagall finds herself without the usual distractions of students and staff. She decides there is only one way to solve the puzzle before her, and that she will have to take a rather large chance.
This was a submission for the Redemption Challenge and contains huge howling unavoidable HBP spoilers.

Oh, I liked that one! I like any well-written story about these two, but this one is especially good - I, too, have always suspected that Severus must have been Minerva's chess partner, and that they deeply respect each other.
It's good to see them in such a well written angsty fic, the darkness that surrounds them is so real.

Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.

Severus and Minerva again.. ah, it's so good to read that pairing.

I am so glad you did not turn this into one of those sappy Snape-loves-Lily fics, I was afraid for a moment when I read that book scene. But it did turn out nicely.

And I can so see Snape and McGonagall taking points of each other's houses in one of their arguments.. indeed, I liked the end.

Author's Response: I figure if he does love Lily, he\'ll consider it nobody\'s business but his own. He and Minerva are fun to conjecture about; we have so little to go on, and so much of it is rich with interpretable actions. Thanks!

I like this story very much. First of all, you have a beautiful writing style. One can see that you put a lot of effort into that.
Second, I like the way you depicted Snape and Dumbledore. Both of them are very much in character.

I liked the end so much - Snape hearing that New Year's Song in the distance. New Years's is a symbol of hope, but not for him - he stays secluded from everyone else. Yet this loneliness was his own choice.. really, a good story!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review!! I really appreciate your kind words. I\'m so glad you enjoyed this story and its message of hope for Snape. I\'m glad I was able to portray both him and Dumbledore well. Thanks for reading this, and for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)

 

Summary: Ugh! Valentine's Day. Professor Snape has never liked the holiday, and now he must endure a Valentine's Day after Gilderoy Lockhart idiotically suggests that students ask the Potions Master to show them how to "whip up a love potion."

But one never knows how one will react, should someone be brave enough to ask the Potions Master about love potions.

This story really surprised me!

The title suggested it'd be one of those humor fics that make you laught out loud, but where really everyone goes OOC.

But no, your's is great. I loved Hermione asking about love potions with Lockhart in her mind, I did laugh loudly at that part. But the part with Anne was quite sad, really, yet so realistic.

And I liked Snape actually being friendly to a student without going OOC. Really, a good job!

Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, poor Hermione... she kind of left herself open for that. But I am glad you liked the part between Snape and Anne, and that you felt Snape stayed in character.
