Greek mythology nut! Woot! Currently doing a double major of Classical Studies and English Literature, with a minor in Deaf Studies, at Victoria Uni in Wellington, New Zealand. Member of the SCA, and enjoying every minute of it! Also, I have many useless talents, including being able to quote from any book/movie/dvd that I have ever seen or read. Comes in handy every now and then. : )


HP-wise, my favourite 'ships are L/J, R/Hr, H/G and RL/NT. Marauder era is my home. I love it. So far, I prefer Brisingr over Eragon, although all three are fantastic books. Can't wait for the fourth! LOTR-wise, Aragorn is my man, although Pippin does have his moments! : ) Love, love, love The Twilight Saga, although Edward really annoys me in New Moon. I'm totally on the Edward bandwagon. It's quite sad how much I'm on that wagon. *grins*


I love chatting to people about their stories or my own, so feel free to drop me and email or a message, especially if it's just for a natter. : ) Til whenever, Corryn.


To err is human, to arr! is pirate!

Sirius Black’s last will and testament is sanctioned during the summer prior to Harry’s sixth year. Harry wins his freedom from the Dursleys, but freedom is sometimes an illusion and never comes without cost.  Many of JKR’s minor characters join the usual suspects in the foreground, in this dialogue-heavy epic tale of sons and daughters rebelling against  parents, followers rebelling against leaders, authority figures bumbling, governments crumbling, walls between worlds tumbling, and heroes rebelling against their fates.  Spans sixth and seventh years, and beyond.  Post-OotP; some elements of HBP are incorporated (in AU fashion).

Great story. Excellent dialogue, well thought out plotline, beautiful delivery. A reader gets totally caught up in the tale, not even realising that time is passing until flatmates are yelling at them to get off the internet so they can use the phone. *grins* I like everything about this, I really do. Can't wait to read more.

Man that was fun! Even though it was short. *glares* I enjoyed it muchly!



Author's Response: I'm really, really, really bad at writing sports. I was never able to get Quidditch right and I didn't want to botch the baseball game. I may try to do a companion piece later though.

One hundred years since Edward and Bella married, their family has grown to include three others, born of half-vampire Renesmee Cullen and shape-shifter Jacob Black. Each gifted in their own rights and each absolutely unique, the three children of Renesmee and Jacob have caught the attention of Aro, leader of the Volturi. Will the Cullens and their allies be able to protect them?

Meep! Emmett! Nerts, I really liked him! Poor Rosalie . . . heck, poor everyone. But Emmett's death aside, this is shaping up to be quite an intriguing story. Reading about new and different characters in the Twilight 'verse is always interesting. : ) Looking forward to reading more!



Author's Response:

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Maria!  I'm not sure if I'm going to add to it or not, though.  It was originally written for a challenge on Twilighted.

Good. Very good. I really liked it. Emotions were well written without being too angsty, for which I am most thankful. : ) Hope to see more of your work!
