About me:

Due to computer issues, I can't access fanfics I added to this site prior to January 2011. I don't know when/if the issues can be fixed. Until then, new chapters for those stories won't be up for a while. I'm sorry to anyone waiting for updates on those fics, but it's out of my control.

May, 2017:  I'll resume several stories not affected by the above issue. As some haven't been updated in a long time, I need to re-edit/polish them to my current writing style or removing and reworking them as a fresh story. This will take a while, sorry. I still get regular reviews on my stories; thanks all of you so much for that. As I'm going through a very rough time, please be patient.
Stories I'll be returning to in 2018/2019: A different Pair of Eyes, He Listened, Riddle in Mind, The Forgotten Child, and The Son Becomes the Father. Those are the ones I have absolutely decided on; there are more I intend to return to, I just don't know if they'll be resumed sooner rather than later. 

September, 2018: For now, I'm primarily focusing on updates for Potions Prodigy, the Geminus series,  and Always a Snape. I work on others when I have time, but won't be updating them yet.


Though outdated - here are links to tribute/promo videos for some of my stories, if anyone's interested.

Perception can be everything. After the incident with the Philosopher's Stone and Voldemort, Harry falls into a magical slumber and wakes months later on August 31st as an entirely different boy who is about to begin his first year at Hogwarts. Sorted into Slytherin as someone else, Harry experiences Hogwarts in an entirely new way. He realises that there is more to Slytherin than it appears, and even more to their Head of House as well. Before long, acting as someone else isn't nearly as hard as fighting the need to reverse it, or at least find out what happened to “Harry Potter”.

As far as Harry knew, it was all some sort of experiment that only Dumbledore could understand. He had no idea that the cat he had been given to keep him company instead of Hedwig over the holidays before his 3rd year, was in fact, his hated Potions Master in disguise.

Because of the Azkaban escapee, Sirius Black, Severus is sent to stay with Harry during the entire summer, never making a sound nor leaving the boy's side. He could not speak, nor could he defend Harry against anyone other than the criminal on the loose, however Severus does something that no other adult in Harry's life had done before...he listened.

His full name was Harry Severus Evans. Aurors had saved him as a little boy and he had gone to live with his uncaring relatives until they left him at an orphanage three years ago. Now ten years old, Harry runs away to find his father even though he has no idea where Severus Snape lives. But can the man be there for his son when the boy needs him most? Can Harry finally have the family he longs for? He's not the boy-who-lived, nor does he have a destiny to defeat Voldemort...he's quite simply, just Harry.

Three days before Harry's 11th birthday, a mysterious piece of magic is performed and he meets a boy his age. A boy named Tom Riddle. He is very real, although Harry is the only one who can see and hear him. And when they attend Hogwarts, no one can comprehend the outcome of this friendship.
Two orphans deprived of a loving family, both raised in the muggle world even though they are half-bloods, both sorted into Slytherin and can speak the language of snakes...but is their future the same? Severus Snape will do everything to prevent this, but is it already too late?

During their third year, Harry and Draco take their rivalry too far while in the Room of Requirement. As a result, a magical accident transports them to a make-believe world where they had grown up from toddlers and their caring father is...Severus Snape.
Desperate to get back to their own world, the boys try to get along and play the part, but to Snape nothing has changed. And what happens when they return to their rightful time and place?
Their illusionary adventure will have them realize the man that is capable of being family and cause them to form the friendship they hadn't thought possible to obtain.
Playing pretend is the one that starts it all: it's part 1 of 4 in the “Shifted Reality” series that will eventually have two boys and one man learning to be a family.

It was a dark and busy night and not quite curfew. Harry had decided on a moment of peace as Halloween approaches and ventured to the library for some reading. He sees the odd sight of Snape sitting at a table and is determined to just ignore the man. However he's sitting right where Harry had wanted to sit and the teenager wasn't going to let this stop him. And so, the sixth year Gryffindor sat across from his hated Slytherin teacher. Simply put, things do not go as expected.
