Hi! My name is Kirinin, and I've been writing fanfiction for over ten years, now. My initial fandom was Ranma 1/2. After having a lot of fun with this fandom for around five years, I decided to branch out.
My first completed Harry fic is Secret of Slytherin, which was initially on fanfiction-dot-net. I have to say that writing and posting this story has been one of the most fun and interesting literary experiences I've had. For one thing, the tale started off as a bedtime story, meant to be shared with someone verbally, so it had to have a certain cadence. Then, when I initially posted it, the feedback was thoughtful and thorough - to the point that people brought up and argued issues I'd never even thought of. Some or the reviews themselves are works of art, and I've met a lot of great people through their analyses of the story.
It's wonderful to be able to share SoS with a new fanfiction community here, and give the story some more life. :)
Secret of Slytherin now has a sequel called Geas of Gryffindor. While Severus and Harry are very important characters in that tale, they are no longer its sole focus, which is why I have chosen not to post it here. Please check it out on fanfiction.net, or on Archive of Our Own, where I am posting Secret of Slytherin and Geas of Gryffindor under the same penname.
I tend to like many if not all of the canon characters in the HP Universe, and really dislike it when an author is willing to demonize one set of characters to make the others look better. My favorite characters to mess with are the Trio, Draco Malfoy, Severus Snape and Remus Lupin, but I'm willing to read anyone, so long as they're written thoughtfully.
As a final note, I tend to recommend stories I've enjoyed in my Author's Notes; I also have a C2 for Harry Potter fics on my fanfiction-dot-net account. That is all. [Report This]
