26 years old, avid HP fan, live in a pretty rainy country. My favourite writer is George Orwell, which should be taken as a warning by anyone looking for pink fluff. I do not like pink fluff.

What I do like are dark, cynical, well-plotted stories with beautiful and skilled writing. And reviews of course :-)

PLEASE NOTE: I'm currently in a HP/DM love fest phase, and stories keep popping up in my head like crazy. Since I'm not allowed to archive them here, these stories can be found att TPP (http://www.thepetulantpoetess.com/viewuser.php?uid=13431) or on my Livejournal (http://redorchids.livejournal.com). This unfortunately means that my SS/HG WIPs have been abandoned. I tried to finish them for a long time, but in the end, it just wouldn't come together. I'm very sorry about that. (More details at the end of the last posted chapter of each story if you're interested.)

WIP status update (2008-12-08):

Shades of Grey: Abandoned. I'm sorry. It was just the right thing to do.
The Ringmaker: Same thing.
Les Innocents: Same thing again.

Recently completed:

Lots of stuff. Some HP/DM, some HP/CD, some AD/GG and lots of other fics. Go check out my LJ.

Enough about me, now read my stories. :-)
