About me:

From the South of Wales, now living in Ireland. Have written Fanfiction for seven years or so, now publishing erotica and studying film. 

Currently uploading my long-running Slytherin!Harry fanfiction, The Serpent's Gaze, which is a plot-focused venture running across five books. I started it about two years ago, and I'm steadily approaching the 300,000 word mark, and I'm so, so excited with where I'm taking it.

The Serpent's Gaze is something of a labour of love for me, given that because I'm looking at a version of Harry who's sorted into Slytherin I can really delve into character development and exploration. It's so exciting to look at completely different plot points, such as the lack of Horcruxes, and grapple with how a character might be influenced through his years at Hogwarts without just making a new character altogether. 

The fic series is currently posted in its entirety - with books 1-4 completed and book 5 in progress - on Ao3, Fanfiction.net and Wattpad. I'm currently in the process of crossposting everything to here and HPFanficTalk too!

I'm hoping to finish the series' primary plot this year! If you want to talk to me about the series or about anything, really, feel free to drop me a message! :)
