Hi everyone bothering to read this!
Sonorus: A spell to make oneself heard.
I'm a Brit, I enjoy writing and came to HP fanfic because I wanted to have go at a big, epic story so that's what I did.
However the Neville Longbottom saga is now on indefinite hiatus and may never be finished; it became to difficult to write and I moved on to other things and left fanfic for a while. However, as of now (Oct 2012) I am now back with a new 11-chapter Founder's fic "The Raven's Claw".
Other than Neville's story and The Raven's Claw, I've written "Snape's Christmas Carol", a bit of Yuletide fun, and a couple of one-shots too ("Yet Each Man Kills the Thing He Loves" is probably my favorite thing I've ever written, and was amazed to see it's been done for one of the Audiofics! Check it out, it's very well done, I particularly liked the reader's Dumbledore).
I try to reply to every review I get as and when I can. Please tell me what you think of my work
Favourite character: Neville (well, duh!)
Favourite book: DH (I thought it rocked, especially the part played by a certain sword-wielding Gryffindor!)
Favourite chapter: The Riddle House (GoF) (it brilliantly sets the atmosphere for the second, darker half of the series)
Funniest moment: "Give her hell from us, Peeves" (and everything around that!)
Most powerful moment: "Kill the spare" (the three words that transformed the Potter books forever)
House: Ravenclaw. Both here and on Pottermore. What else did you expect?
A quick update on The Neville Longbottom Story:
Book 1: 13 chapters, complete

Book 5: 22 chapters planned, on hiatus

A story of the origins of Hogwarts. 11 chapters.
It is the tenth century. Across the island of Britain great changes are taking place and history is being made. But its wizarding community is mired in division and violence, with little hope of an end. Everywhere, the future seems uncertain.
And amid this, in a glen in the Highlands, a young pregnant woman buries her husband and makes a vow that will change history forever.
Her name is Rowena. They call her the Raven's Claw.
"It feels as if the whole world is falling apart," said Neville, "and I'm falling right along with it."
In the fifth instalment of the Neville Longbottom saga, Voldemort is back, but nobody wants to know. Facing pressure from all sides, and feeling alone and abandoned, the Boy-Who-Lived confronts the depths of despair and the darkest corners of his soul.
With a direct link to evil plaguing his mind and the cruel Dolores Umbridge determined to break him, can Neville find the hope and strength to carry on? And will he be prepared to embrace his destiny? The darkness falls in Year Five...
A note on the warnings: there's nothing there you won't find in the canon novel.
A little bit of fun for the Christmas season!
Severus Snape is a miserable, grumpy, nasty man, feared or loathed by all around him. But can the appearance of a succession of familiar ghosts one Christmas convince him to mend his ways?
Based on the classic story by Charles Dickens. Lightly comic with serious parts. AU warning as Snape has survived the Battle of Hogwarts
Neville stared down at the smouldering scrap of parchment. There, in neat handwriting that was not his own, was printed the name NEVILLE LONGBOTTOM.
When Neville's name emerges from the Goblet of Fire, the Boy-Who-Lived is thrust into his most dangerous challenge yet. For how can a boy with such limited magical ability possibly hope to survive one of the most gruelling and violent competitions in the Wizarding world?
The new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher takes Neville under his wing, but evil is growing nearer and not everyone is as they seem. Meanwhile new complications arise in Neville's life. How will he cope with these challenges, and what awaits him at the year's end? In Year Four, everything changes...
Summary: Dangerous werewolf Remus Lupin has escaped from Azkaban prison...
In the third instalment of the Neville Longbottom saga, the Boy-Who-Lived must face his greatest fears and come face to face with his own past and the past of those around him.
With a mysterious escaped criminal, a surprising Defence Against the Dark Arts professor and intrigue at every turn, many revelations are made and secrets revealed. How will Neville react to the changes to his world and the discoveries he makes? This is Year Three...
Summary: A message, written in what appeared to be a large quantity of blood, was daubed across the wall. In dripping bright red letters Neville read “THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS IS NOW OPEN. FLEE, MUDBLOODS, OR DIE.”
In the first sequel to Neville Longbottom and the Philosopher's Stone (prior reading recommended), Neville, the Boy-Who-Lived, enters his second year at Hogwarts, and confronts prejudice and discrimination in the wizarding world and an ancient threat to Hogwarts itself.
How will Neville face these challenges and what new secrets will be discovered? Welcome to Year 2...
Summary: 1945, and Albus Dumbledore comes to Nurmengard.
Title and quotations taken from The Ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde.
Summary: "Yes Neville," said Dumbledore, "it was Voldemort who came to your parents’ house that night nearly ten years ago. It was Voldemort who killed them. And it was Voldemort who then turned his wand on you.”
The ultimate 'what if?'. What if Voldemort had chosen Neville rather than Harry as the boy meant by the prophecy? What if Neville was the Boy-Who-Lived and Harry was the "might have been"?
Join Neville as he faces some familiar and less familiar challenges of his first year at Hogwarts in the first of an epic seven story series mirroring the original novels.
Story now complete. Book 2 is on its way!
