Bio:
I'm only just an Englishman; from North of "the Wall," but South of "the border." The bit that most of England doesn't know is theirs.

I've been a fan for years, ever since I read book one, which is also when I suspected that Harry and Ginny would, eventually, be a couple. This was confirmed to me in the opening Chapters of CoS. I cannot read Dramione, Drinny, slash or, for that matter, any major non-canon pairing. If JKR says that's what happens, that's good enough for me. Why bother re-imagining?

I like action, rather than fluff, though I seem to write a lot of fluff.

I appear to be writing several stories. In fact, I’m only writing one. In chronological order (of events, not writing) my stories are:
The Hufflepuff late 1996 (COMPLETE)
