Carissa, a.k.a. carissa_lynn, is a Harry Potter fan writer and archive admin.

She was an admin at Gryffindor Tower (one of the so-called "Queens of H/G") and a major player in The Ms.Scribe Story.

After the demise of Gryffindor Tower, she started her own MWPP-focused archive, Time She also started, a Lemony Snicket site.


From Time in 2004:

I love reading fanfic more than writing it, though I do get insprired occasionally. Unfortunately, that inspiration usually only lasts through one chapter, leaving a string of unfinished fics with my name on them all over the internet. My favorite passtime of the moment is playing on websites, and making things pretty. In addition to this site, I have a Lemony Snicket site [], and have helpd out with a few other HP sites, including, and Unredeemed. Also, I moderate at The Hidden Tower while anxiously waiting on Casca and Emmyjean to update their fics.

I also have fics/art archived at Bitchnmoan, The Sugar Quill, The Hidden Tower, Unredeemed and, but as alluded to above, most of them are unfinished. Well, actually they all are unless they were only intended to be one chapter...) You must approach most of my fics with enough imagination to fill in the ending, otherwise, read at your own risk. :)[1]
