Bio:
I write a lot of non-fiction, including (so far) five books. These stories are my first efforts at fiction.

Private Auror is a post-DH story in which the Ministry isn't all sweetness and light simply because they changed the guy at the top. Alone is an AU story that tries to avoid as many cliches as possible. It also assumes that the Ministry is at least as malignant as the one in the books.

I like many of the stories I read on SIYE, but don't like the sometimes-long waits between chapters. So I complete my stories before posting the first chapter.

I much appreciate your comments and your votes for Alone to win Dumbledore's Silver Trinket for Best Drama. Although the thrill of winning was slightly dampened by the fact that Alone only got 15 percent of the vote--meaning most of the other excellent contenders must have won 10 to 14 percent--I shall nevertheless take it as a mandate to write another story someday soon.

Gods Bless Accidental Magic! by Dopeydo starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 306]
** Winner of the May 2014 Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Comedy **
Everybody has their limits. As Harry finds his reason to live, he will break many of them… and not all intentionally.

Her Greatest Gift by Seritha starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 103]
What happens if Ginny was born with a gift that no one really understood and what if Harry found a dad who raised him? I know, totally cliche on Harry leaving Dursleys, so I can only hope I can add my own spin.

Hero by Enchanted starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 104]
It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well. ~J.K. Rowling, "King's Cross," Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, 2007, Albus Dumbledore.

Alternate Universe – Returning to England after a forced absence a young man finds the inexorable hand of fate leading him to fight a war for a world he did not know, against an evil he could not escape and for a love he could not deny.

Phantom Limb by rbackwards2 starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 163]
A young man realizes he's been the victim of a prophecy. He struggles to make sense of his place in an unfamiliar world. Sound familiar? Nothing's familiar to this young man. Nothing except his aunt Arthur. Rated R for language, situations and my own amusement.

The Best Mistake of My Life by black_dress starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 625]
** Winner of the 2009 Annual Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Comedy **
It may have seemed like a mistake, but was it really all wrong? Or was Ginny just in a serious case of denial? AU Harry never went to Hogwarts and has never met the Weasleys. But what happens when he meets the youngest one? Even if the circumstances aren't exactly ideal. Follow Ginny as she discovers a few things about herself, the person she is meant to be and the person she is meant to be with. Because I think, in whatever universe, Harry is meant for Ginny.

The Contract by Just Desserts starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 275]
There was no way that Petunia Dursley was raising that child. Every contract had to have a loophole in it somewhere, if she could only find it. But once she found it, how would she get rid of the child? She would learn that magic is based on intent, and subverting the intent of any contract is risky business. A story co-written by Moshpit and Sovran.
