  2. Summary

    a full rewrite of my novel series A Saga of Light and Dark and associated stories (including prequels) but...in a modern setting. Beginning when Adrienne, Adonis, Avery, and co. are teens/young adults, until Nerissa and co. are that old themselves. There is an order to it, but I'm not posting chronologically; the series will be reordered to be chronological, though! Mostly just an exploration of what would have happened if x character hadn't died or y character had gotten some therapy or if These characters had gotten a chance to interact with each other... Yeah! It's all just for fun :) Could be a good intro to the series too, since I've done my best to make it as accurate to the canon as possible while still exploring the impacts of those particular changes. (Check notes for a basic run-down of the modern AU timeline!)

  3. Summary

    a saga of light and dark (which i refer to, generally, as osa, which is the title of the first novel) is my original series of novels. i’ve written quite a few “fan"fics involving the characters, some in-universe and others au’s, and i decided i would post them here for easier access! though a lot of them contain spoilers, most are not canon-compliant (and if they are canon-compliant, i wouldn't necessarily say that they function AS canon...it's just exploratory for me. i don't consider anything posted here to be "canon" unless it explicitly states so in the fic notes!).

    more info about the series/where you can read the books (if you’d like) in the notes!

  4. Summary

    fills from requests on twitter or tumblr (or my writing server on discord! it’s open to everyone, so if you’d like to join shoot me a message for an invite!~).

    these include commissioned works and prompt requests, though i typically only post the latter on tumblr—unless they get quite long, the post ends up deleted somehow, or i just feel like it.

    i’m always open to requests, so please feel free to send one to my tumblr or curiouscat inboxes (please don’t comment on a fic or dm, because i will almost certainly forget about it. sorry!!).

    these may not all reflect my own tastes, or even be written for fandoms i know anything about, but i try my best with them all! i take requests in order to work on certain mechanical or stylistic things, which may make the writing different from my other fics or at times inconsistent. generally, i write requests in one sitting, often on a time limit, or at least try to (sometimes i get carried away and this isn’t possible).

    (nearly) all other filled requests can be found here!

    Summary

    Rather than allowing Harry to stay at Diagon Alley after he blew up Aunt Marge, the Ministry sends Harry back to the Dursleys. Harry returns to school after a terrible summer, to find that he's not the only one with this kind of secret. A student has been killed by his family. New screening measures are put into place by the Ministry: Every student must be given a medical exam and interview to look for child abuse. With Dumbledore facing an inquiry, Snape is entrusted with the task of making sure EVERYONE receives one.

    Answer to the "New measures for screening abuse" challenge at Potions and Snitches.

    The first chapter contains a character death and the whole story is quite dark. It begins at the beginning of Prisoner of Azkaban and is AU thereafter. Also note: this story is a "Snape is Harry's biological dad" story. This is not supposed to be the central theme of the story, but people have gotten annoyed that I didn't tell them at the beginning.

    Another note: There are no pairings in this story, or explicit sexual content. There are, however, mentions of homosexuality. Since there are no pairings, there is no slash content, but if the mere mention of homosexuality offends you, read something else.

    Summary

    Snape rolled his eyes. "You're not scared of blood, Potter. For one, you're a Gryffindor. For another, you seem to face down the Dark Lord with alarming regularity. If you were afraid of blood, you wouldn't have made it past your first year in this castle."

    "What do you want me to say?" Harry shouted, suddenly filled with the same irrational anger that'd been so hard to shake since Cedric's death. He jumped to his feet, unable to sit any longer. "What would you have me do? I couldn't make myself break skin, okay? Is that so hard to believe?"

    --

    Or: a potion requires blood as an ingredient. Harry's afraid of a relapse. Snape just wants to know why Harry Vanished a perfectly decent brew. They come to an understanding.
