I became intrigued with Harry Potter after the movie release of the Half-Blood Prince, after which I read the books and was accordingly caught in the thrill of Harry’s magic world. Since then I have never managed to escape.
I write fan fiction because I like to write, and would rather be writing original material but unfortunately inspiration is far and few between. I also happen to be an obsessive compulsive, raving fangirl whom enjoys furthering characters and exploiting tantalizing plot opportunities. Also, because all that nasty business of coming up with characters/setting/plot has already been taken care of by someone else.
I have another profile, under the same name, on "the pit of voles" where you can find many more Harry Potter stories written by me, as well as brushes with a couple other fandoms. I only submit works to this site that are among my personal favorites.
I'm fond of one-word titles and chocolate.

Remus and Tonks first meet and sparks fly -- almost literally
Summary: “You won’t,” he said and smiled, an ugly, disfigured looking thing as though he had forgotten the art. How she could remember his smile…. “I know you. You wouldn’t, Meda. Not to me.” Shortly after breaking out of Azkaban, Sirius Black pays someone a visit.
