Bio:
I never expected myself to write fanfiction in the Potterverse, because I always took canon at face value - there's a reason it was called canon, I supposed.


Another reason, I supposed, was deeming myself not worthy.


Then Severus Snape happened to me. In many ways, more than I could possibly understand at the time.


Now there's one fic posted and several at various stages, and all I can say is - he just keeps happening. For which I am grateful. And the more I walk, or rather, stumble through the tangled web that is his mind, I keep getting more questions than answers. Needless to say, I do not tire of professing my love of him because of that. That man is a writer's dream.



At the risk of being accused of conceit (one tends to become very mindful of that after spending time in Severus' company), I must say that I am rather proud of having my first fic finished and completely posted. The only thing that can make me happier still is learning other authors' and readers' opinions on it.


Oh, and if you've read it, please drop by my corner now and then, as there will be updates in the form of one-shots, and a new chaptered fic (not a sequel, though) is coming along nicely (or at least, as nicely as anything that involves our dearest Professor can be).

The Next Best Thing by Elmindreda
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: What a ridiculous way to die. If there is one thing about my predicament that is making it even more laughable, it is the fact that I am still alive.


It has been a year since the night that Severus Snape spent in the Shrieking Shack, awaiting death that would not come. A year that seemed long, passed quickly, yet should not have come to pass at all. One can come to terms with the idea of there being a due time for one's death. But what one does do when the predetermined, awaited and eagerly expected end fails to arrive?

Dear Mods, this fic has been previously deleted by mistake and is in the process of restoration. I have been granted permission by Deanine to submit two chapters at a time. Thank you!

Tendrils of Mist by MissyQuill, Elmindreda
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: "Just as well you never expected life to be fair, or you would have been in for one heck of a disappointment."

What good can possibly come out of meetings that could not be reasonably expected, guests that are less than welcome, and coincidences that are considerably less likely than a rational mind could estimate?.. Severus will have to find an answer to this question - and many more.

A Gauntlet entry written by MissyQuill and Elmindreda of Gryffindor. Awarded third place!

With lots of gratitude to Hannah, our wonderful guide! (On whose nerves we have been collectively getting throughout the whole duration of the Gauntlet...)
