Right, so, I suppose the main thing about me is that I tend to be rather slow on updating. I'm talking sometimes months between updates. My Muse can be horrifically flighty, sometimes, so we'll blame him.

At present, I only have the one Work-In-Progress here, although I do believe it is nearing its conclusion. I do have a few other WIPs on fanfiction.net that I will be getting to after I finish The Boy Who..? as well as a CATS fanfic (another fandom to which I subscribe).  

In Real Life, I am an X-ray Tech, though I also aspire to be a novelist - if I can ever get my Muse to focus for that long.

Anyhow, if you choose to give my stuff a read, be sure to let me know what you think. I'm a sucker for reviews, even if I don't always answer them. Also, if you answer one of my Challenges, be sure to shoot me a message and I'll give it a read.

Regards,

Dream Painter

"I see you still have no end of dunderheaded ideas," Snape grumbled, shooting Harry a mutinous glare. It might have been more effective if his tone had not been so high-pitched, or if he didn't currently stand at a height just below Harry's shoulder.

Snape needs to find a gift for Dumbledore. Unfortunately, he has to take Arthur Weasley with him to the Muggle store. They encounter rubber ducks, obsessive fan girls, talking fish, etc. Will Snape find the perfect gift for Dumbledore? What will Arthur's reaction be to meeting the infamous rubber duck?
