Magnetic Pole first created her livejournal in March 2006, participating in Harry Potter fandom by writing Remus/Sirius stories in the month-long Wellymuck community challenge. Her stories quickly became known for their handling of the complexities of topics such as family relationships, queer identities, and coming out.

Notable Communities

  • R/S Small Gifts, co-created with Busaikko, an annual holiday R/S fic and art exchange community.
  • LGBTQ Recs, a month of queer-themed recs--books, movies, music, academic articles, television shows, etc. Active in June.

Notable Fanworks

  • Out of the Cupboard Under the Stairs In the summer of 1998, after the defeat of Voldemort, Harry comes out to his friends.
