The only thing holding me back from world domination is felony level procrastination.


  1. I’m super excited for this!

  2. I’m so happy to see you back in the HP fandom<3 I've missed your words.

  3. Ohhh I’m so excited!!

  4. omg a new one can not wait just rereading your other hp stories

  5. This story sounds really interesting, I am so excited to read it. I can’t wait!!

  6. This is so exciting!

  7. I’m really looking forward to reading this.

  8. So excited!

  9. Got all excited there for a moment, thinking I had something new to read. I’m sure it will be worth the wait. And in my world, procrastination is a way of life. If it wasn’t for the last minute, very little would be accomplished in my world.

  10. Saving Sirius is probably favourite HP fanfic trope. I’m looking forward to it!

  11. You are so very good to us!

    I will be counting down the hours for this. If I’m super good, I’ll save it until the 4th to read it as that’s my birthday and it will be the first one I’ve had without my brothers & sister. But, knowing me, I’ll read it as soon as it’s up as your writing is too awesome to wait for. Hugs, Hxx

  13. Oh my gosh! I just finished rereading Soulmate Bond and then this was there and I’m so excited I couldn’t speak complete sentences and now my kids are laughing at me and I totally don’t care! Whooohooooo ! New Story!

  14. Thank you for sharing. My poor husband had to keep getting my attention when he wanted me as I get lost in what I am reading, and your writing draws me in more than most. Raising a glass to your awesome talent. Thank you.

  15. I love your HP stories and all the original characters you’ve added. I am so glad you are still writing

  16. I positively squealed when I saw you had posted another story! I absolutely love all the stories that explore the adults in Harry’s life and seeing them swarm around and protect him 😀
