Thanks for taking the time to read my bio!

I am already archived at and Though I'm mostly an author of dark fiction, I have had most success with humour in my parody of the Harry Potter series, Tom Riddle and the Half Blood Prince. Unfortunately some chapters are too short to archive it here, but if you're interested you can go to my site and get the link.

Here's my disclaimer: Any plots and/or characters recognized from the current series by J.K Rowling are copyright and belong to said author, subsequent plots and/or characters belong to me. No copyright infingement is intended.

Many thanks to all my reviewers, who hopped on my stories the moment I set foot here. That was unexpected - and nice!

That was fantastic - I can't believe I never thought of it before - Leglimens to leglimens - of course! It makes so much sense. Thank you for such a beautiful and well thought-out piece.

Chapter 1: Legilimens to Legilimens - A One Shot
COMPLETED! - The start of magic as Harry knows it.

Canon tells us little of the beginnings of magic. Now, exhaustive magical and Muggle historical research tells the tale.


Only with the addition of the oral traditions gleaned from the Ollivander family journals, can the foundation of modern magic be brought to light.


While helping Mr. Ollivander count inventory, Harry Potter hears the tale of the founding of Ollivanders – "Makers of Fine Wands since 382 B.C."

An extremely interesting take on the Potter universe. I never saw this coming. I really enjoy the historical facts you incorporate into the story - it lends a sense of realism to it all. Congratulations on becoming the author of the fortnight - it is well deserved.

Chapter 1: Chapter One - Long, Long Ago, Our Story Begins
Reviewer: Zetera (Signed)
This chapter was even better than the last. I love your writing style, and the idea of Willen knowing the purpose of the wood is unique and wonderful to read.

Chapter 2: Chapter Two - Willen's Luck
Reviewer: Zetera (Signed)
Yay - up the Irish! Loved that bit. This whole chapter was great; your characters are astonishingly well-rounded and developed. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this plays out.

Chapter 3: Chapter Three - Accio Magik!
Reviewer: Zetera (Signed)
I'm delighted to hear that this story is completed; I can't wait to hear what happens next! You have become evil by leaving the chapter at a cliffhanger, but you are forgiven as it's such a compelling story!

Chapter 4: Chapter Four - "Mah-ghee-kahl!"
Reviewer: Zetera (Signed)
Another excellent chapter. Even though the passages on bow manufacture were rather involved, they were enthralling enough in themselves to keep me hooked. I love little Lindern - he's a great character. I laughed out loud during the conversation between Willen, Haana, Aldini and Aldertan - it was very Monty Python-esque. Great job as usual, and thanks for the swift update!

Author's Response: Zetera, You have been one of my few reviewers for this tale. For that I am truly grateful. You have missed chapters six and seven, I believe. I am about to post the final chapter, eight, and then it will be gone from the left hand column at WT. I just don\'t want my only fan for this work on WT to miss out. Thanks again ancd cheers!

Chapter 5: Chapter Five - DragonSlayer? Who, me?
The Worthy by Seren [Mid Teens]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 4]

The Last Battle has begun, and the Last Stand is pitched in the Ministry of Magic. After Remus Lupin is felled, Harry and his closest friends defeat Voldemort, and Prophecy is fulfilled. But it is not the end; the Veil stands as Judge, Jury, and Executioner, and only the worthy may survive. Not a Sirius returns from the Veil fiction.

I thought the dialogue was a little shaky at times, but the ending had me gripping my seat. I think you gave too much away in your summary though. Nicely done overall.

Chapter 1: The Worthy

This is a oneshot, post-final battle type thing...I wasn't really sure what category it belonged in, so I kind of stuck it here.

Wow, the screen is blurry as I type this due to the tears in my eyes! Brilliant stuff - and it could well happen! Parroting another reviewer, your style does seem to flow like a film, with snippets of separate reactions like cut camera shots. I liked it, it was refreshing to read something a different way, although such a style would really only work in a one shot as is the case here. Great writing - well done.

Dear Dumby by Oppungo [All Ages]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 52]
What happens when Dumbledore has his latest "brilliant" idea, to start an advice column, and call it 'Dear Dumby'? Letters from some of our favourite Hogwarts students, some of our not so favourite Hogwarts students, some not even Hogwarts students at all, and, of course, lots of madness! Pre-HBP for obvious reasons!

Haha, I read this story on MNff first, but I'd forgotton it so I decided to give it a go here. Glad I did, it's such a great idea for a fic.

Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I remember you from MNFF, glad you like it here too!

Chapter 1: The Notice
Reviewer: Zetera (Signed)
Ah yes, I do love this chapter. Especially the one from 'Fed Up of Avoiding Avada Kedavra' - so brilliant.

Author's Response: Thanks, I have to say that\'s been one of my favourite letters to write so far! Thanks for reviewing!
