About me:

Heyo! I'm Art, an nineteen year old fangirl totally and completely obsessed with Harry Potter, Harry Potter fanfiction in particular.

I got the HP book set for Christmas in 2020, and I really did not expect to like it much. But I ended up falling deeply in love. I read the books quickly as I am a fairly fast reader, but I would often set the books aside and start reading fanfiction long before I finished the series. So basically, I spoiled the whole series for myself haha. BUT, I feel like I probably wouldn't have fallen so hard for Harry and Sev gen fic if I had focused solely on canon, as fanfiction convinced me to like Severus before I could really even properly dislike him. So that's okay.

I have always been a sucker for found family, in every fandom I've ever been a part of, and so Potions and Snitches is like a God send for me. In other fandoms I've had to search high and low for the couple of heartwarming family fluff fics, but I joined this site in early January 2021 and I still have so much to read!

I have been writing practically my whole life, but I was one of those writer-who-isn't-writing types. I mostly wrote songs and a few short fanfics. My older works for other fandoms on FFN are quite horrid, and I feel like I've learned a lot about the art as of late. I'm really super excited and proud of what I'm writing now, and I hope that my readers are enjoying my work half as much as I'm enjoying writing it!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to support my stories, you can check out my tumblr under MellarkandArt for story updates and general Potterhead nonsense! I'm also on Ao3 and FFN under the same username, and I'm in the P&S Discord, where my server nickname is Art! [Report This]

Neglect can be one of the most painful forms of abuse, being ignored by your guardians when all you want is love hurts. No one seems to care if Harry lives or dies so he spends a lot of time wandering around Little Whinging on his own. His friendly neighbor seems to think that this is dangerous. If only someone paid enough attention to Harry to tell him that his neighbor is a little too friendly...

“I- I wasn’t trying to kill myself, Professor,” Harry said softly.

Snape glared at him, only slightly less cold than usual. “Then just what were you trying to do?”

“I was just going to… cut myself.”

Snape blinked and kept his eyes closed for a moment, rolling them as he opened them once more. “Obviously.”
