You can call me luinrina or Bine. I am
+ a proud Hufflepuff (banners by Heather and Lucia)

+ (if my muse cooperates) a fairly wordy writer.

List of uncompleted chaptered stories and their status:
Magical Moments - A Special Issue

I try to keep that list up to date, but I'm rather bad at writing and keeping to lists...
I hope you enjoy my stories. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about them.
