I work in a law firm in the UK. I studied History and an MA in War and Contemporary Conflict before beginning training as a solicitor. My primary interests are military history/international politics, and I serve in the British Army Reserves.

I have not updated in years because everything else takes priority to writing, and I am insanely busy with work Please do not PM me or review stories to complain about lack of updates, particularly not if you only have a guest account. It is childish to behave as if I have an obligation to write for your entertainment when I have IRL things to do, like earn a living.

You can also find me publishing on Archive of Our Own, as well as lurking around on Spacebattles and Sufficient Velocity. I prefer generally prefer publishing on AO3 to as I can insert pictures into the text of my stories for a full multimedia experience - if you like my stories, you’ll like them even more over on AO3 with gifs and pictures.

Might possibly get around to writing again:

Per Ardua ad Astra - HP/Stargate Atlantis crossover. Military sci-fi with a side of Harry/Teyla. When I get some time to breathe, this is the story I will work on.
Khaveyrim - HP/NCIS with a Harry/Ziva focus. One chapter remaining - writing stalled, unfortunately.

Possible Future Stories. Not yet published.

Alis Aquilae - Mass Effect semi-AU novelisation. Military sci-fi focus. Just something I'm playing around with for now.

Also a Hawaii 5-0 crossover with my SAS!Harry character from Per Ardua and Khaveyrim.

Contemplating abandoning

Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum - HP/Stargate SG-1 crossover. Espionage/military sci-fi focus.
Reason: too much timey-wimey cliche stuff at the beginning. Needs significant rewriting.
