I am a marketing consultant and happily married for over twenty-three years.

I majored in history at university. It reflects in all of my writings, except for the one-shot challenge tales I write.

Indeed, my story "Makers of Fine Wands since 382 B.C." starts with as much Muggle history as is available for England at the time (very little), and what can be extrapolated from that era from elsewhere.

Then, I added in all of the magical historical research I've done, and the research done by the magical anthropological field teams now discovering the roots of magic all around Europe. The history of how magic as we know it was discovered and developed, began to take shape, but only as a list of facts, not as a narrative.

Finally, the interviews with Harry Potter in 2023, after the death of Mr. Ollivander and with his expressed permission, allowed this tale be told in a readable manner.

My pseudonym existed before I discovered fanfiction, and I never imagined that I'd be alphabetized by first name.

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."

Harry Potter staggers out of the Forbidden Forest after defeating Voldemort. He had to kill the evil wizard three times, but he is finally dead. The wizarding and Muggle worlds are now safe.

Our hero cares nothing for this. He carries in his arms the body of Luna Lovegood, motionless but still alive - placed in this wide-eyed coma by hours of the Cruciatus Curse torture.

How can Harry rescue the love of his life from a state much worse than Frank and Alice Longbottom's?
