Bio:
Hi. I've been gone for a whileÖ Really would like to come backÖ 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 Hitchhikerís 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 donít 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. :)

WIPs:


Maia in the Mirror:
This story is most likely discontinued. I havenít really felt inspired to write it for some time, but I might pick it up again eventually. It started out as one of those ďput myself in the PotterverseĒ-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 donít 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 toÖ But Iím sticking with this one until the end. Harry/Draco is my OTP! ;)
And I know the title is a mouthfulÖ Iím considering shortening it to just Too Much Love, but Iím thinking it might be a little late for that now.


Severely Moonstruck:
Severely Moonstruck is my first attempt at writing a particular pairing Iíve 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 Remusí secret lover was, this is the story where you find out. Actually itís not much of a secretÖ I think everyone has figured out what ship this really is by now, anywayÖ



Short Stories:


A Night at the Opera Series


This is a series of one-shots all based on songs from Queenís 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. Weíll see if I ever bother to write them all downÖ 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 Iím 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. Itís actually more like a monologue than a storyÖ 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 AngliaÖ Since we get no real explanation, I decided to write my own version. Only piece of humour Iíve ever written, apart from a few drabbles. It really isnít my forteÖ

You're My Best Friend
I swear to Godric, I really meant to write a Ron/Harry, for a lark. I just couldnít do it! So I wrote a fluffy little friendship fic instead. :)

Thirty-Nine (slash)
Hereís the only Sirius/Remus Iíve ever written, at least the only one purely so. I used to fancy myself a Wolfstar shipper, but lately Iíve 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 ďallsĒ, actually. It was the first fic I wrote for A Night at the Opera, and itís 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 donít work out. I like to see them fail, especially with Harry/Draco. When I say itís my OTP, Iím really lying a little, because I have no delusions of it ever working outÖ I just find the dynamics interesting, the idea of it all. Thatís why I write it.


The Tool Song Fics:


For those who know me, I donít 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. Thereís nothing else quite like them in the world.

Wings
This story is based on the song 10,000 Days from Toolís 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 Maynardís 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 heís looking down on me and watching me.

Vicarious
Vicarious is a song which represents what I really like best about Tool; the cynicism, the idea that there is no hope for mankind. Itís 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. Thatís why we watch horror movies. But itís not politically correct to admit it. Thatís what itís all about.

Schism
I love this song. Schism gives me thing special feeling; the instrumentation is amazing, the lyrics are absolutely fantasticÖ Itís so special to me that I felt it was the perfect song to use to illustrate poor Dumbledoreís relationship with Gellert Gridelwald and with Aberforth. Schism is about lost love, lost feelings, pieces fallen wayÖ I donít think I can explain it in any other way.

Borderline
This story is based on the song Stinkfist, from Toolís album ∆nima (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 littleÖ 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 personís 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, donít you?), the lyrics take my breath away. It occurred to me a while ago that this song really applies to Nevilleís 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 thatís when this idea popped into my head. Hope people like it; I appear to be writing a lot of grief fics latelyÖ Iím 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 itís 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!

Pushit by MaiaMadness
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 6]

Summary:

“Saw that gap again today as you were begging me to stay. Managed to push myself away, and you as well, my dear. You still love me and you push it on me. And I’m slipping back into the gap again. I feel alive when you touch me. I feel alive when you hold me down. If, when I say I might fade like a sigh if I stay, you minimise my movement anyway, I must persuade you another way. Pushing and shoving and pushing me… There’s no love in fear!”

This wasn’t the way it was meant to be, staring at each other over pieces of broken glass, the air heavy with the echo of angry words and endless regret. This wasn’t how it was meant to be…

Schism by MaiaMadness
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 3]

Summary:

"I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them tumble down.
No fault, none to blame. It doesn't mean I don't desire to
point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over;
to bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication. Cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any sense of compassion between supposed lovers, between supposed brothers.
