I'm just starting this fanfiction thing, and mostly I think I'll be experimenting with my writing style through it. I'm just working on my first few fics, and in the meantime, I'm reading all sorts of great stories here.... all of which was true four years ago when I wrote it, but is still pretty accurate even now.
I studied English and Theology at the University of Notre Dame before graduating and moving elsewhere. Like many others on this site, I have designs to be a writer. In an ironic twist, I focus mainly on poetry, but will only be posting stories here. My poems aren't really applicable to HP, but I do think this is a good place to work on my prose.
For years, I have kept a green notebook for all of my creative writings/ sketchings/ musings/ collectings/ occasional homeworkings. It's similar to the commonplace book, if any of you have read Lemony Snicket. I have about 20 of these notebooks from over the past few years, and even though I keep track of my writing on my laptop now, most of it starts in my green notebook. Therefore, the green notebook serves as my identity, especially when I don't feel like revealing my real name.
I hope you enjoy my work, and if you don't, I hope you come back later to try my newer stuff.

When Bill Weasley needs to get away from England and the stress of rebuilding his family after Fred’s death, Fleur willingly goes with him to Charlie’s Romanian dragon reservation. She wants nothing to do with the actual dragons, however. All too aware of the dangers associated with giant flying lizards, Fleur lives by advice her father jokingly quotes from JRR Tolkien: “It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” Can Fleur show Bill that she can handle dragons? More importantly, can she show him why her dragon-facing capabilities don’t matter?
This is greennotebook of Hufflepuff House writing for the Third Task of the Triwizard Tournament.
