Hi, I'm Northumbrian (or Neil, to those who know me). I'm English (but only just) and I'm neither female, nor a teenager. Than puts me in a minority in HP fanfic circles. In fact, I don't know of any British, male, parents who write fanfics (although any two out of those three is easy).

This is Bamburgh castle
and this is Lindisfarne castle.

I've been writing Harry Potter fanfics since mid 2009 and I hope that I'm improving.

My stories are (with one exception) all set in the same single future history. I hope to chart the journey Harry, Ginny and their friends take through their lives. I am concentrating on the nineteen years between the battle and the epilogue, but in no particular order.

I keep to canon.

These are JKR's characters, she knows them better than anyone, so if she says:
"No! No! Please don't fancy Draco. I've given you an array of pleasant characters." (Bloomberg) don't expect my Draco to be pleasant.
and when she says that Ginny is:
"pretty much the ideal girl for Harry. She's tough, not in an unpleasant way, but she's gutsy ... she's funny, and I think that she's very warm and compassionate ... Ginny and Harry ... are total equals. They are worthy of each other, then, by definition, she's right.

I'm not JKR, and to change her characters would be disrespectful. If you think I have, tell me. 
Most (though not all) of my stories feature Harry and Ginny. Most also feature Ron and Hermione. They were, after all, inseperable for seven books. However, I'm guilty of an unnatural fondness for Lavender Brown.

I will be (slowly) uploading my stories here over the next few weeks.

Her friends are getting older, getting married, and having children. Lavender Brown doesn’t even have a boyfriend, not a proper boyfriend anyway. What she has are issues, and these days most of them are Moon-related.


This is a sequel to "Bare" though you don’t need to read that story first.

Meet Mark Moon, a bailiff in the Department of Magical Law Enforcement (Scottish Office). Mark has girl problems, or a problem girl, he isn't certain which. The girl is named Lavender.

The Hufflepuff

Hannah Abbott, she's that pink-faced girl with pigtails, isn't she?

She's a typical Hufflepuff. Loyal, safe, and boring.

The Question

Ron is on his way to ask Hermione a question. He thinks that Hermione knows everything, but will she be able to answer this question?

This is not simply a question; it is the question. What will the answer be?

Ron and Harry are men on a mission.

The Question (Again)

Harry is on his way to ask Ginny a question. He thinks what Ginny's answer will be, is he correct?

This is not simply a question; it is the question. What will the answer be?

Ron and Harry are men on a mission.

Summer of '97

 On a fine day, during summer holidays, two Hogwarts students, one pure-blood, one Muggle-born meet in a small market town in the north of England.

Swimsuit Quidditch

 It is Ginny’s twentieth birthday, and she wants to play a game with Harry.

Disclaimer: This is a story about Quidditch. There is nothing sexual about this story and anyone who thinks otherwise is mistaken.

After Breakfast

A story about Ron and Hermione's Wedding which focuses on the speeches.

This was the first story I completed. (It probably shows.)

I didn't record who did this banner for me (sorry, artist), but I think that it was MaskedMuggle

It Takes Two

A typical day in the lives of Mr and Mrs H J Potter suddenly becomes far from typical when Harry makes a chance discovery.

It Takes TwoCollapse ) 


Harry is busy at work, so Ginny tales a trip to Tibet with an eccentric companion.

This is one of many banners I commissioned from TDA. All were credited. Unfortunately I lost all of the names.
