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)

Summary:

A haunted house that isn’t haunted, a Muggle fortune teller who can’t actually tell fortunes and the legend of the Cursed Green Pearl!

What (apart from a mysterious chest, a broken red stiletto and a corpse) lies within the topmost room of the Haunted Tower?

Moons by Northumbrian Rated: MT - Mature Themes [Reviews - 5]
Summary:

July 2010 and a young married couple are out for a relaxing and romantic day. An afternoon at the theatre, followed by a meal to bring back memories. It should be a fairytale day.

Unfortunately, it is, but will it be happily-ever-after, or Grimm?

 

This is a sequel to Moon, although you don't have to read that story, as this stands alone.

New Year's Eve by Northumbrian Rated: FG13 - Family Guidance13 [Reviews - 1]
Summary: New Year's Eve, (or Hogmanay if you prefer). What sort of imbecile thinks it's a good idea to give a married man with two kids, and a very pregnant wife, a love potion? It should be a time to celebrate. For "the best dad in the world" and his wife, it's time for chocolate biscuits, cocktails, an Auror in a leopard print dress, Dung and Coco.

Now and Forever by Northumbrian Rated: GP - General Public starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 2] New!
Summary: The centenary of the Battle of Hogwarts is less than a year away, and the Wizarding world continues to move forward. Modernisation requires change, and some things must be swept aside in the name of progress. Buildings can be demolished and statues, even statues of deceased heroes like Harry Potter, can be relocated. Can’t they?

Hubert Dalrymple has a problem.
