Since site signatures and profiles offer limited space for links and summaries, I thought I'd create a list at the top of the LJ that I can update when fics are posted.

I'm a complete review junkie, so most of these stories have been posted in more than one place, and indeed some of them appear in many different archives -- a list of which stories appear in which archives is given at the foot of the page. All of them however are posted to my fic journal.

They tend to be gen with or without a secondary shippy plot, although about a quarter are basically shipfic. Quite a number are challenge stories of one kind or another, although in many cases those are ones that I had in mind anyway and just adapted slightly for the challenge. :) The most common rating is PG-13, although there are a few that are R/NC-17.

So when Tonks puts her shapeshifting skills to good use investigating the trade in a highly dangerous potion, while simultaneously trying to deal with her family's very 'Black' past history, things quickly get complicated ...
