About me:

Hey guys, Sam here!  


-My name is Sam, and I would appreciate it if you referred to me by that name.

-I am a Hufflepuff and Thunderbird (offically sorted) and my Patronus is a Mastiff Dog

-I absolutely love writing. It's one of my escapes along with music

-I am currently in college for animation

-I also plan on creating my own comic book and publishing it (WIP as of now) 

-I am a very slow writer. I plan out each story chapter by chapter (or try to) then I write it all out at once. If I don't like the way a story is going, it normally results in multiple do-overs, which makes updating constantly on a schedule very difficult. 

-My Archiveofourown name is Shezza_Cumberbatch and my Tumblr is that-one-new-pokemon.  

-Thanks to the lovely starangel2106, my username has been officially changed. I used to be SamuelWinchester, so don't be confused why I'm suddenly not on the author's page anymore under that name. Just head on over to the T's instead. =)


I am fully aware that Another Life Lead and Wings of Sun have taken ages to update. The reason for that is I have completely lost interest in the stories and thier plots. So for now, consider them on hold until further notice. 

With Another Life Lead, I had published it earlier than intended due to a preview error and since you all liked what I published, I went ahead and posted the rest of what I had written at that time. Now, I have completely forgotten what I was going to write for the rest of the story. Until I can remember and compltely finish, there will be no update. It will take a lot of time, perhaps years, but I hope you can wait just a bit longer. 

With Wings of Sun, I absolutely hate what I have written. I still love the concept and challenge that Mellow Moon has written, but I hate how I wrote it out and how I responded to the challenge. Due to long times between updates and poor planning on my part, I have forgotten what the original plot was, so I just wrote down whatever came into my head, resulting in the jumbled mess I have now. So, what I am going to do is completely rewrite the story, with a whole new plot. The new story will be called Birds of a Feather and will take some time to write. As of now, it is still in the beginning stages of planning and will take a lot of time to finish. I will keep up Wings of Sun, so you can continue to read it at your leisure, just dont expect any updates. 


I also have a few stories that have been running around in my head for quite a while. For some, I've begun writing, while for others, I'm still planning out chapters and finishing the plot before writing. Im going to go ahead and put the summaries and tags here below, just so you know what to expect and what to look forward to. It may take a long time, but I will get these stories out!


Upcoming Stories: (In no particular order)


Plague War: Set during Fifth Year: When Harry thought about it, he always thought the end of the world would end in fire and brimstone and chaos. He never thought it would end with Voldemort's reign.

Prince of the Black Pearl: Set during First Year: Harry was nothing special. He was just a boy who owned an odd golden necklace and had a special love for the sea.

    I'm kind of thinking that perhaps it was a boggart or something, judging by her 180 in emotions. Either that, or someone is certainly doing some spell work. I like this story. I hope you eventually come back to it.

Book two in the Outcast's Alley series. Having accepted his place in the Court, Tobias must learn how to fulfill it, as well as handle new revelations about his parentage.

    I absolutely adore this series. Just found it today and spent the whole day reading the previous story and this one. I love where this is going and can't wait for an update! :)

What happens when a brain damaged Harry and a transgender Hermione both get sorted into Slytherin? Snape's not sure, but he thinks it's likely to be an interesting term. This story follows various first years through the trials of their first year

    I absolutely love how you wrote Hermes. As a Transgender person myself, I can fully understand how he feels and the struggles he's going through. If only transitioning in the Muggle world was as easy as it was in the Wizarding World!

Why does Harry's plan to help Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes involve a Niffler? Harry gets more than he bargained for when he sets out to help George keep the store open after the Final Battle.

Severus thought he knew what to expect of the spawn of James Potter...until he walked into the Great Hall looking like Severus Snape.

    Noooo! Ended right at the good part!

    I know it's been two years, so I have no idea if you are going to continue this story or not, but I can't wait to see if there might be more!

Snape has kept Lily’s many secrets for years. Having been forced to reveal one for Harry’s safety, the rest look soon to follow. And either Black has found a way to fly, turn invisible and tame dragons, or there is someone else after Harry’s blood too.

    Ah! I can't wait for more! This is amazing!

It would appear that everything bad happens to Harry Potter. He just can't seem to catch a break. Thus, once again, he's dealt a bad hand. Forced to stay within ten feet of the man who seems to hate him even more than Voldemort himself, Harry must struggle to survive - if not physically, then definitely emotionally. But sometimes in the hardest of times, one can learn things that were never imagined possible. Can Harry and Severus learn to look past the masks and see the true heart behind it?

    Ha! This is perfect

Harry is a survivor in the harsh world of his un-loving family. All he truly desires is to be a normal boy. It appears that Hogwarts offers all that he desires but he quickly learns that despite what he wants everyone else expects him to be a hero. This is Severitus, Hogwarts first year, AU. British spelling is used. Story is completely written so this will not be abandoned.

    This is a great story!

    Author's Response: Thank you!

Snape puts Harry under a magical leash to keep him out of trouble. But unbeknown to him, Harry has been turned into a vampire, and the leash is causing far more harm than good. Terrified of losing his friends, Harry would rather starve than risk the truth coming out.
