About this blog

Probably nonsensical posts about fandom-related things that I'm thinking about or questioning. 
So you can probably ignore it.
Like, seriously.

Some 2021 Resolutions

HAPPY 2021! 🎉 Usually, New Year's Resolutions are quite triggering for me because of the association with dieting and weight loss. But since March 2020 I've been in eating disorder recovery, and it's important that I don't focus on the dieting anymore. Christmas and New Year were still very difficult and triggered some panic attacks, but I was very determined to not focus 2021 around my usual fears. So, I decided to think of things that would really make me happy.    1. Finis

An Honest Conversation about Mental Health & Lockdown

Trigger Warning for mentions of eating disorders, addiction, anxiety, and depression. *  * * * * It's August 11th and the U.K. has been in lockdown for the majority of five months. Five months. Something nobody anticipated at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve/Day, that's for sure. I myself was actually in residential eating disorder treatment at a rehab centre when the U.K. first went into lockdown mid-March. It was a scary concept but as I'd already been in therapy

Eating Disorder Awareness Week

Trigger Warning for Eating Disorder / Depression / Anxiety  So this is something I've been spending the past few weeks coming to terms with. I have an eating disorder. Most of my symptoms fit under Binge Eating Disorder (BED) but because they don't fit solidly within just BED then I have what is termed OSFED or Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder. Turns out I have been dealing with this for a number of years and it has just gone unnoticed by myself (ironically a mental health advo

Rating: M  Characters: Astoria Greengrass/Draco Malfoy #   QUESTIONS 1.Obviously the story was written for a challenge.

A Cete of Badgers

Hufflepuffs are known for being loyal, hard-working and patient. People make fun of us as we’re basically known as the house that you get sent to if you don’t fit into any of the other three. Helga Hufflepuff, our Founder, was kind, caring, and wanted to be fair – willing to give each and every student a place where they would be welcomed. There’s no discrimination in this house, we don’t care where you’ve come from, and we encourage one another to be the best versions of ourselves.  Our se

Mental Health Awareness Week

It's Mental Health Awareness Week and I have really been struggling. (Trigger warning for content just to be safe) That takes a lot of courage for me to admit. I've had a huge setback this week and have been feeling very overwhelmed, very worthless, and very low. My usual coping mechanisms have done nothing for me and I have barely been able to sleep at night because of intrusive thoughts. I even had to call upon some fandom friends through twitter because I was having urges to hurt myself.

Reasons Why I Write

I owe my love of writing and fanfiction to Harry Potter. When I was sixteen, the Harry Potter films finished. It was 2011, the year I left high school, and I walked out of the cinema after seeing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in floods of tears because my childhood was officially over. No more books. No more films (heh, so I thought!).  It was all gone.  I was actually on holiday at the time, and I remember sitting on my hotel bed that night and scouring the internet for
