About me:

A few things about myself:    

   1) I am Canadian (cough ... and proud of it)

    2) I absolutely love the readers on this site, and hearing their thoughts/questions either by reviews or messaging makes me simply dance. 

   3) I have a pet newt. He is so old it's not even funny. Yeah, 14 yrs. Pet store said 3. Good thing I like him. 

   4) Lastly: I got into writing fanfiction here for two reasons.

           A) The first is that I love to write. And not only that, I wanted to learn to write.

           B) Potions and Snitches is a great place for learning.

     Thus - I've made a lot of mistakes writing, but because of how  awesome the reviewers are, I've learned from those mistakes and gotten better. The kindness of the readers has kept me coming back time and time again, and really helped me improve my writing. At this point I'm now working on an original novel, meaning fanfiction has taken a back seat. That was always the goal, and I hope one day to take my writing somewhere besides just the internet and my friends' bookshelves. 

     Well, that's all folks!

 P.S. I am on fanfiction.net, but my pen name is LittleWhitetail, rather than Whitetail. 

  Current Project: Jan 1st 2016 update - Writing is going quite well. Still taking a break from fanfiction. Not promising any new P&S stories, but it isn't impossible. My original novel is slow but progressing, and is into some of the final drafts. Had some success in the past year - got a short story published! If you'd like to read the story, check out Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Possible. The story is called "The Pivotal Moment". Also, on a fanfiction note, I still read reviews (but am slow to answer). Also, feel free to message me - questions, concerns, anything. I do love hearing from people here. Cheers!

Sometimes getting what you want is terrifying. Can Severus and Harry manage after the roller coaster that was first year?

Sequel to Reading the Signs.

    Good chapter! I look forward to seeing more.

    Author's Response: Thanks so much :)

Harry Potter was reckless. He was reckless and irresponsible and infuriating and impossible and Severus was terrified because he’d just heard a scream.

Inspired in no small part by Running Away by Bil.

    Ah, that was awesome! I loved it! Agghh! It was very well written, well done!

Severus Snape contemplates his relationship with Lily's son whilst listening to an old record his best-friend gave him many years ago.

    Eee that was really really good! I loved it! I especially liked how Snape referred to his soul as grubby when he was a child!

    Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, Severus is so hard on himself, has so many things to regret and lives so much in the past, that I could see him ruminating over the state of his soul at various times .

Just a week into his 3rd year Harry comes up with a rather reckless plan involving the Slytherins. Its consequences change the course of the year more than he could ever have suspected, and make him get closer to Snape than he'd have liked...3rd year AU

    I love this! I read the entire thing this evening, and I am enjoying all of the character development you have going on! I love the idea you used to get Harry into Slytherin. I also like how you've worked in a few important events from POA into this, such as the Marauders map!

Harry and Hermione are de-aged to four year olds, and Snape is stuck looking after them.

    Hey, DaughterOfAres I managed to see the name 'Harry' instead of Hermione in your question, and I only realized after I submitted my answer! (In my defense I answered this at one in the morning) So, here's the actual answer: I did not mention that Hermione was abused, though it depended how you interpreted it. If you chose, you could have believed that her parents had far too high of expectations for her. It all depends on your opinion really and was rather open ended. Hope that helps!

Just before Christmas, Harry hears the basilisk again and believes he's going mad. Why else would he hear a voice that no one else can, talking about blood and death? Unable to take the stress, he flees the castle in the middle of a blizzard. Severus Snape follows him and they end up trapped in a cave, along with a very rare creature. Will they survive to see Christmas morning? Will they finally learn to set aside old grudges and impressions and learn the truth about each other? Christmas 2010 fic! Sick!Harry and sick!Severus, AU, mentor/apprentice, COS.

    Really good chapter! The Wise One just keeps getting more and more interesting. I liked how you gave a nod to Severus' past, but didn't really go too far into it. Sorry to hear about your ankle, I broke my foot a while ago, so I know what that's like. Hope you're on your feet soon!

    Author's Response: Thanks! My ankle is on the mend now.  Good thing because I have shopping to do yet for the holidays and it's terrible when all you can do is limp along at a snail's pace.  You'll love what the Wise One does in my new chapter.  There will be more hints about Sev's past to come and hope you enjoy the new chappie!

    Good ending, really different! I wonder how the permanent housing would be for the hybrid houses, along with seating ... Interesting! I enjoyed this story in it's uniqueness and I was looking forward to every chapter. Thank you for another wonderful read. As for a sequel, it would be nice, but this one stands on it's own just as well.

An unexpected encounter in winter woods.

    I liked it, very nice. I liked the analogy of the raven.

    Author's Response: Thank you!

Petunia Dursley is cleaning the attic and finds a previously unknown copy of Lily’s will. Ecstatic at her discovery, she promptly abandons her burdensome nephew, along with Lily’s will, on the doorstep of her childhood nemesis (aka, Severus Snape). ***SEQUEL "Lily's Last Wish" NOW POSTED***
