My Bio

I'm a middle-aged, professional writer of non-fiction and would-be professional writer of fiction who also writes Harry Potter fanfiction just for fun.

I’m a proud member of the Harry Potter Old Lady Smut Brigade, which means I’m most interested in the older female characters in the Harry Potter saga, particularly Minerva McGonagall.

If I had received my Hogwarts letter back in nineteen-mumble-mumble, I would most likely have been sorted into Ravenclaw, or so everyone tells me, probably because I’m a geeky data-freak (my Real Life™ requires me to read piles of medical journal articles.) I, however, think I’d feel right at home in Hufflepuff too, so I consider myself a Ravenpuff.

The fics I write may contain adult themes, and I will always warn for non-con, graphic violence, bestiality, incest, or underage sex. I don't warn for homosexual relationships or sex, or for threesomes/moresomes, unless they contain one of the aforementioned elements.

A Better Childhood [T (PG-13)] by grugster
[Reviews - 156] Favorite - 39
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Hogwarts Castle
Characters: Alastor (Mad-Eye) Moody, Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall, Poppy Pomfrey, Severus Snape
Genres: Alternate, Universe, General, Psychological     Warnings: (None)
Summary: The Ministry forces Severus to decide between getting de-aged or go to Azkaban. He chooses Azkaban, but Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall and Alastor Moody disagree with it. So he is a four-year-old now and lives with Albus and Minerva. Fluffy story!

A Holiday with the Headmaster [MA (NC-17)] by MMADfan
[Reviews - 105] Favorite - 46
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Hogwarts Castle
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall
Genres: Drama, Erotica, Humor, Romance     Warnings: Explicit Sexual Content
Summary: Albus and Minerva take a holiday before the onset of the school year. Set in late August 1957. A restful retreat of a story, romantic and lemony. Take a little holiday! Part of the Resolving a Misunderstanding universe, but it's not necessary to be familiar with that story to enjoy this one. Not DH-compliant.

A Long Vernal Season [M (R)] by MMADfan
[Reviews - 1164] Favorite - 98
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Hogwarts Castle
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Filius Flitwick, Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, Poppy Pomfrey, Severus Snape
Genres: Alternate Universe, Drama, Mystery/Suspense, Romance     Warnings: none
Summary: Severus Snape had believed that, for him, life after the Dark Lord was an impossibility, that his death was not merely justice, but necessity. He has survived, though, and now he must learn to live his new, unexpected life, and to find something beyond the narrow existence to which he was once bound. A Snape-centric post-war fic.

A Death’s Dominion sequel, but may stand alone. Not DH-compliant. DH-disregarded. Rated M for overall content. Much of it is "T," but the ratings rise to MA later for a reason, hence the switch to an M-rating for the earlier chapters. Watch the individual chapter summaries and author’s notes for ratings, warnings, and the characters appearing in that chapter.

Part One finds Severus dealing with some very immediate and dangerous consequences of his final confrontation with the Dark Lord more than three months before.

Genres: Drama, Erotica, Humor, Psychological     Warnings: (None)

A response to the Potter Place Winter Prompt Challenge #22. A third place winner in the Potter Place Challenge, and a featured story at SH Occlumency for November 2007. Not DH-compliant. Completely disregards DH.

Please note ratings and warnings in individual chapters. MA content in several chapters.

Death's Dominion [M (R)] by MMADfan
[Reviews - 642] Favorite - 157
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Hogwarts Castle
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Potions Under Duress
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, Poppy Pomfrey, Severus Snape
Genres: Alternate Universe, Drama, Friendship, General, Mystery/Suspense, Psychological     Warnings: none
Summary: Severus Snape’s life was changed when he was hit by an errant spell, and he comes to a decision that defies Dumbledore’s wishes. Even the fate of the wizarding world is altered by this one ill-cast curse and Snape’s subsequent resolve. Long after the spell itself has dissipated, its effects continue echoing in the lives of Severus, Albus, Minerva, and Hermione, and they bring with them a shadowy figure whom Snape does not trust and whose motivations and influence on Minerva are murky. Conspiracies and schemes swirl around Severus as he continues on his path of deception to his final confrontation with the Dark Lord.
Canon-divergent post-July 1996 in the HP universe. Not DH-compliant. (Partially HBP-compliant.)

A “Light” fic of love, loyalty, and redemption.

Pertinent warnings in individual chapter summaries.

Four Versions of June, 7th, 1957 [K+ (PG)] by graou
[Reviews - 9] Favorite - 1
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Hogwarts Castle
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall
Genres: Friendship, Psychological, Romance     Warnings: (None)
Summary: "Albus Dumbledore discovered Minerva in tears in her classroom late one evening, after she found out about the marriage of Dougal McGregor to another woman. She confessed the whole story to him, and Albus Dumbledore offered both comfort and wisdom, telling Minerva some of his own family history, previously unknown to her. The confidences exchanged that night between two intensely private and reserved characters were to form the basis of a lasting mutual esteem and friendship," says JKR. This is a development—actually, four possibilities, one per chapter, of how it could have looked, sounded, felt like to a younger Minerva McGonagall and a less ancient Albus Dumbledore.
