Bio:
Hey! I'm coppercurls, a proud Hufflepuff (beware the badger) and a college kid who writes in her spare time. Incidentally, I find no time is spare since whatever free time I have is instantly relegated to writing time- the only solution I have found is to make all days thirty-six hours. Unfortunately this hasn't caught on yet. I read indescriminatly, although my preferences lie with fairy tales of all shapes and sizes. I haunt the public library, always bringing back a sack full of new books- I am not ashamed to still go in the children's section either. I do have a tendancy to ramble on when I don't really have a straightforward plan, so I will spare you and end this bio right here.

I also have original fiction up at the Red Chair (see website above) under the penname coppercurls. Please check it out and let me know what you think!

Current updates:
I am currently working on three chaptered fics, so
I beg your indulgence as I switch between them. One is a next generation fic about Draco's son, Emrys and the trouble he gets into at school. It is called: With a Little Help from my Friends.

The next is a good old fashioned romance between Severus Snape and a strongwilled OC named Helene. Based on ideas from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, this will be the longest of my chaptered stories. Titled: How Saynday got the Sun.

Finally, I have a D/Hr series which begins with O Ye of Little Faith, and the sequal, For the Lacking of It is finally being put up! This will be a medium chaptered fic, so keep checking back for updates! I also have a one shot offshoot called On ne voit bien qu'avec le coeur which had Draco and Hermione telling a fairy tale to thier daughter, and mimics their relationship throughout the series.
Other D/Hr fics include:
Breaking the Mind Trap and
You are insulting my delicate feelings again.

Summary: I don’t really know how to start this. I certainly never anticipated all the events and troubles that would come from me being in the wrong place at the wrong time (or maybe it was the right place at the right time?) Those events just seemed to keep galloping down so fast that there was never any time to pause, never any time to breathe.

I suppose since you've heard the news, you think you know what happened, that I turned out just like my no-good-Death-Eater-Dad, which shows that you really don't know the true story at all. So I'll tell you what really happened when Draco Malfoy's son went to Hogwarts and accidentally broke just about every rule in the book, and one or two they never thought necessary to write down.
