About me:

Greetings from Virginia! I began reading Harry Potter fanfiction in 2006, and P&S is my favorite site by far! I don't have a computer of my own yet, but that hasn't stopped me from writing. I have a couple of one-shots currently in progress, as well as a multi-chaptered story that's going on 35,000 words so far, all of this handwritten. I braved the wilds of the public library to get my other stories typed up and uploaded to P&S. As a writer, I mainly want my stories to be enjoyed; if you like them, please let me know by leaving a brief review! Thanks!!!

I have 4 cats: Cricket (long-haired black-striped gray/beige tabby female), Tiger (white with orange spots male), Shadow (solid black female), and Jack (gray&white male). [NOTE: Cricket died around the beginning of September 2013 -- she'll be forever in my heart.] The cats are my main hobby (at least THEY think so!), but I also enjoy cooking and updating older recipes (from the era of comfort food) to render them less deadly than the originals! I also crochet on occasion, love Native American Pow Wows, Star Trek (original classic series is my fave), and NASCAR (rooted for Rusty Wallace until he retired, and am now backing Carl Edwards). Fave singer is 3-time Grammy winner Bill Miller - I know most people have never heard of him, but go ahead and check him out-- his music is AWESOME!!!

Am hoping to get a laptop before the end of 2013, although at the rate I'm going, it'll take a miracle...

A small look into what may be a happy memory to Harry and Snape both with a little snow added.

    Really cute! Wonderful story to read the day affter Christmas!

Harry Potter has many discoveries to make in his sixth year - some good, some bad. As his view of the world changes, he finds himself making unlikely allies in unexpected places.

    Whoa! You really had me going for a few moments! No! Not a traitor! Not Snape! (I actually tried to remember if this story fell into the "Enemies" category...) My blood ran COLD until I'd read a bit further. Quite a chapter!!!

    I started reading this story a while back, got sidetracked by real life, and finally started reading from Chapter 1 all over again. I thoroughly enjoyed the detailed development of plot, action, and characterization. Your ORIGINALITY SHONE throughout! This will always be one of my favorites! THANKS for a great ride! :-)

Silence is deafening, isn't it? Especially with Snape breathing down your neck.

    Wow! When I caught this on the "Story of the Moment", I had no idea how much I'd get into it, given the fact that it's been about 5 years since the last update. However, I loved it! Actually, make that: LOVE it-- since I hope you'll consider continuing the story after having had a break! :-D Seriously, one of your major strengths is drawing your readers into the story-- an amazing feat to do it SO WELL in chapters this short! Your focus remains tightly upon action and emotion, and that drives your train at high speed, while your audience can only hang on for the ride, wondering where you're taking them next! /// Just as an aside, I noticed that many of your early reviewers are different from those who are currently actively reviewing; also, there are many new members (more than 400 more since I joined in Sept 2009!) who would be interested in your story! It has SO MUCH POTENTIAL! Please consider giving it (& us) another shot! Thanks!

Snape knows Harry Potter's eyes. He knows how they've changed and how come they have. Yet Snape can't escape the memory of the young Harry who he met over old Chinese food, stolen bandages, and a dislocated shoulder. Wait and Hope for the world's end.

Reviewer: shadowienne (Signed)
    Found this on Story of the Moment & so glad I clicked on it! I love the interaction between Snape and Harry in both realms, the comparison/contrast between both, and their mutual acknowledgement at the end. Especially, I liked the fact that Harry had kept and WORN Snape's belt through the years. It was the one item he'd owned that wasn't Dudley's first, a gift (as it were) from the only person Harry could remember trying to help him during the hard years of his childhood. I'm sure Harry must have known all along that Snape was his benefactor, even before he suffered the detention injury, and despite Snape's treatment of him since First Year, he still wore the man's belt. That's awesome! Oh, to be a fly on the wall of Harry's brain, knowing that there was far more to the Potions Master than what met the eye...

War has destroyed the ministry, Dumbledore's mind is no longer reliable, Harry is tired of war and Snape must decide if it will end.

    Wow! The story may be short, but it gives one a lot to think about! I read it through twice, & I really got even more out if it the second time. Really interesting that Snape, not Dumbledore, ended up with the decision, even though Harry wanted to call the shots. Very thought provoking-- well done!

ONESHOT. Snape discovers some unsettling evidence that drives him to Number 4 Privet drive. What does he discover? Fic fest challenge response... (can be read as cannon, see chapter note).

Title: Chapter 1: Braving Spiders 01 Mar 2015
Reviewer: shadowienne (Signed)
    I really liked the progression of Snape's emotions throughout the story. Also, given his fear of spiders (a "spy" who's afraid of "spi"ders!), it baffles me how he could shove Harry back in the cupboard with them, although I had to smile at Snape undoing Petunia's handiwork! And then, being sensitive enough not to distress Harry over the "friend" he'd brought along. Lovely story!

As Harry comes of age, he must discover the secret of how Voldemort cheated death and find a way to defeat this evil once and for all. Along the way, he will have to contend with Death Eaters, shadowy Ministry officials and suspicions that threaten to tear his own allies apart. And he will need to delve farther than ever before into the mysteries of the mind where victory can only be won by freeing the chained souls.

    I read this story straight through, after reading the first one in your series, and I am simply blown away by your incredible story-telling ability! It never failed to amaze me when you took familiar details and put your own unique twist in them to create whole new scenarios! BEYOND EXCELLENT!!! Thank you so much! 💖

Harry receives a very special gift on his 16th birthday that leads him to the help he needs...Snape is finding respite from his growing pressures and discovers one in need of help. Despite himself, he finds he CAN grow close to another living being. Only..."everything would've been so much simpler if it'd actually been a cat"...

    I began reading "Shadow" in French on fanfiction.net last year and fell in love with it! (I'm up to chapter 25 in French.) it's great to see an English translation on P&S so that even more readers can enjoy the story! I especially love the characterization of the cat, and the way you have of putting your audience into his mind, seeing the world from Shadow's point of view! (Also, I hope you don't mind, but your writing was the inspiration for my pen name: I was reading about Snape speaking to the cat "en sa voix shadowienne", and I realized I'd found my pen name! Merci!)

    Author's Response: Hey, thank you very much! I am very flattered to have inspired your pen name! Shadow sends you a lot of purrs :-)

Title: Chapter 36: Chapter 36 - A Long, Long, Time ago 25 Feb 2010
Reviewer: shadowienne (Signed)
    This chapter has a bit of everything in it! My favorite parts were the wonderfully-detailed Green Room, and Harry's fire-whiskey rambling to Remus! I always read each chapter in French first, then check the English translation to make sure I got the full meaning (I'm usually about 90% accurate!), but even in French, I was laughing in HYSTERICAL HORROR as Harry confronted Remus! That was TERRIFIC! And the wonderful green tail reappears! Excellent!!!

    Author's Response: I must admit that I had a lot of fun writing this chapter, both because I loved the idea of the room and because imagining everyone's face during Harry's rant was just oo funny! mwahahaha, I'm kind of evil sometimes!
