My current writing has had to slow down due to injuries from a skiing accident in February 2014...my apologies.
Going Muggle Last updated in December 2014. Working on saving that story from writing apathy...it is nearly complete, and many readers have lost interest due to the latest twists...and I need to change the direction of the last couple of chapters...
New story idea..."Drunk on a plane." Yes, the idea is taken from the Dierks Bentley song. The idea was taken from what if Harry discovered that his relationship with Ginny was based on a farce, and ended up taking his honeymoon alone, and got drunk on a plane...and then developing a background to that scene, and then going forward to what would happen when he arrived at said prepaid honeymoon location. Several draft chapters have been written...
I also wrote the outline for a new darker story, My Enemy, My Ally, which I have no idea when that will be turned into an actual story. (Harry Potter is visited by Voldemort in his bedroom at Privet Drive shortly after the episode at the Ministry of Magic...that is the beginning of the story and I will leave it at that). (More serious outline has begun on this)
Future Imperfect, is now finished...
Life During Wartime - has been completed
Potter & Prejudice - yes, a retelling of Pride & Prejudice set in the Potterverse - post Hogwarts, ignores the epilogue and the Cursed Child. The Prologue is up. Most chapters are written - just waiting to be beta'd and edited...
I have decided to take down a couple of my unfinished stories from this site.
Specifically: Harry Potter and The Dark Mark - Parts 1 & 2 - I do not know if or when it will ever get finished. As that was the first fan fiction I ever wrote, the writing is atrocious at times, the grammar and spelling need a lot of work. There are some interesting plot devices, but compared to some of my more recent writings, its kind of lame (in my own opinion). Then there is the one chapter story Harry Potter and the End of the War, which was meant as a teaser for whole other story. I have never had a chance to develop that story and I have so many other stories that are much more developed, I doubt I will ever get around to that one. So I will probably take those down as they are going nowhere. I for one, hate reading a multi chapter story only to find 10 - 20 chapters into it that the author has quit writing it - so, for the purposes of not leaving you all hanging, I will most likely be taking those down (after double checking that I have at least backed them up somewhere)...just giving you all fair warning...
Those stories have come down...(as of 5/19/2014)
Favorite quote: I'm a doctor not a _
Personal quote: Damn it, Jim, I'm a doctor not a navigator (actually spoken to a friend named Jim in a relevant situation)
Favorite fanfic author: my wife (EmlynMara on Fanfiction.net) (Check out her story about Harry Potter starting at the end of year 4...)
Favorite Movie: The Princess Bride
Favorite Movie Series: Star Trek, Star Wars, Bourne, Marvel movies since Iron Man, Indiana Jones (as opposed to Star Trek where the even number movies are the best, for some reason Lucas made the odd numbered movies the best), LOTR, Harry Potter, Bond
Favorite books: (not that I am a big reader, but I have read the following books out loud to my kids over the years: The Hobbit, The Lord of the Ring Trilogy, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Harry Potter Series, The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini, the Bible - okay, I did not read them the Song of Solomon, they can read that on their own when they are older...)
Reviews are welcome...but no flames, please...if you don't like my style of writing, or the dialogue I write, you do not need to post it with repeated anonymous reviews...in fact, you just don't need to read anything I write, I promise I will try to get over it...
Story list will indicate which ones are complete...
Life During Wartime - complete
Future Imperfect - complete
Tangled Up In Blue - outline of a HP story based on Bob Dylan's song...yeah, doesn't make much sense to me either, but I already have a chapter outlined for each verse...
Drunk On A Plane - plot bunny cropped up based on new country song. Harry discover's his relationship with Ginny is a farce. Ends his relationship with her (and the Weasleys). Starts with the scene on the plane, then gives background to what led to that scene, then what happens when he arrives at the prepaid trip in the Bahamas. (Fluff story).
A Company Man - Harry becomes a hit wizard after his Quidditch career is ended...
Plus several other stories being worked on in outline/draft format...including Harry being trained by angels (surprise, it is a very dark story), Harry getting a new circle of friends at the time of the TriWizard tournament...etc...
N.B.: My wife can't stand HP/HG - so she won't even read those stories even when I write them (ie, The Dark Lord? and A Day in The Life)
One of my sons has started writing FanFiction - an interesting story: A Band of Misfits - by mordenkaiser - check it out
My thoughts on fanfiction stories I have read:
EmlynMara has written some wonderful HP/GW stories...not everyone's cup of tea, but worth looking into, even if you normally don't read that pairing...
Epic story starting at the end of 4th year, Sirius takes Harry under his wing to protect him and train him, yes, it IS a HP/GW story, but there actually is a relationship here, very well done
post DH, HP is hunting down escaped Death Eaters after the war, with the help of his red-headed girlfriend (yes, another very good HP/GW story)
the first epic HP story I ever read (and almost every chapter is named after a song by The Who – Maximun R&B!)
also - one of my favourite authors is Dorothea Greengrass
she has some very good Harry/Daphne stories
A Marriage of Convenience - is currently being published
From South Hampton to New York and Beyond - is a great story
an author whose works I have read an enjoyed a lot:
A trilogy of HP/DG stories – very well done, worth the time it takes to read through them...
another epic HP/DG fic –
one of the first HP/SB stories I read – well done
...I have enjoyed reading even more of his stories...
soul bind fic – HP and HG
the first (or second) HP/HG story I read – begins with the GOF
HP/HG eventually get together, post DH, on a chance meeting in NY
and, what has become my favorite pairing - for reading and for writing...HP/DG
a very well done HP/DG fic
Harry meets the Greengrass family at platform 9 at the beginning of year one, NOT the Weasleys – so this is what might happen (HP/DG fic)
HP/DG/SB story, begins at the time of the dementor attack before 5th year, well done
a great HP/DG fic; set in 7th year, after Harry and Neville defeated Voldemort, and the stories they tell Dumbledore on how they supposedly defeated Riddle are amazing
The first Harry-Daphne story I read – and an enjoyable one
one of the first Harry must go back in time and redo everything stories that I read – HP-DG-HG ship...
a story that is a lot of fun HP/DG, - recently added to my favorites list
stories that I have found are a lot of fun
Harry deals with the lies being told about him in the press, using Slytherin methods...a fun story
Harry destroys the world, goes back in time and plans to fix things (Weasley bashing, Harry/harem)
Harry spends the summer learning about curse breaking with Bill Weasley – it is quite the adventure
Harry is smart, Harry has perfect memory, for EVERYTHING – a work in progress
one of the more humorous stories I have read here
MunkeyManiac (James Spookie) has a very good HP-SB story (see above)
Harry and Bellatrix stories may be a little too out there for some people...but here are some interesting and well done ones...
a very AU fic, Harry is sent to Azkaban by RW and HG, where he gets together with Bella, and then they change the world of magic...
Hogwarts allows Harry and Bella to meet in the Room of Requirement – sort of time travel – interesting premise
Harry travels back in time – to when his parents were in school – HP/Bellatrix story – interesting character development
an epic story of Harry and Bella – includes time travel, change in the time line,
