My Bio

I'm a fan of the Harry Potter series. My favourite character is Severus Snape. Complex, intelligent and sexy, he is the tragic hero of the series. I hate how JK Rowling killed him off in Deathly Hallows, and it was what inspired me to write my first ever fanfiction.

I mostly read SS/OC and SS/HG, but occasionally other pieces that catch my attention. I don't like stories that drag on and on without much happening and rarely read anything over 100,000 words unless it is very good. I'm quite forgiving about typos and punctuation errors, but poor style or grammar puts me off straight away, as does OOC. I like realism and don't fancy excessive time travel, de-aging, obscure family links and Snape the vampire stories.

About me:

I am a thirty-something female and mother of two boys. I am German and hence not writing in my mother tongue.

All my stories are totally canon compliant. Not that I mind AU, I just enjoy exploiting the many gaping holes JKR has left us fanfiction authors!

My other stories at Sycophant Hex and Fanfiction.net:

Flying With The Raven is set during HBP and DH and pairs Snape with an adult OC who is on a par with him. It is a Snape survival story, offering plenty of romantic fantasy fodder. Snape's characterisation focuses more on his noble side, prickly shell notwithstanding. Yes, this is self-insertion, but I am willing to share if I get a few reviews in return. ;-)

Wishing On A Star is a post-DH story pairing Snape and Sinistra and is still work in progress (I know it's been a few months since I updated, but be assured I will never abandon this story!). Snape is a more flawed character here than in FWTR. And it won't be until he can stop blaming unfavourable circumstances and other people for his misery that he will change and find happiness.
