You can call me LDI. I am girl who is in process. A writer first & always. An adventurer. A reader. Oh, a reader. A blogger, too. I love: Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey, but many other fandoms too. It's no coincidence my first fanfic was titled "Grace." Grace is how I keep on going. Grace is what gets me through. I want this to be a blog of grace (& of course, fun). I'm a sucker for good looking men with accents. Once, I moved across the country without knowing a soul. Please feel free to pop in & say hello. Let's be friends. We'll have a lattè–did I mention though born & bred in the states, I'm Italian & the food, the language, the culture are pure joys to me? We'll have our lattès & talk–writing, books, adventures, how beautifully messy life can be, you name it. xx, LDI

I caught up to here. I remember…

Writing this chapter. It was a hard one but it also includes one of my favorite exchanges between Matthew and Mary.

In rereading my own story, I forget things that happened. Like this:

Dare I jinx it and hope to be writing a chapter next weekend?

Trying to play catch up on agyk so I can finish. Read this tonight:


I promise I will finish A Girl You Knew. That said, as some of you know, the last nine months have held more transitions and stress packed all together than I ever expected. Just when I thought things would calm these last two weeks, another crisis took place. Please know that I am sorry. While we all know fanfic cannot be our first priority, I do take my commitment to my readers seriously. I haven’t even been on here in months. That said, I love you.


Some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up, heart and soul.

It’s coming

I promise I wasn’t lying. I had to skim parts of Grace for continuity and realized I kind of had to change the premise. Good news is it won’t be a one shot?

Since They changed Philosopher’s Stone to Sorcerer’s Stone for America, I decided to change the rest since us American’s are too dumb to understand the word philosopher:




Harry Potter and The Whisper Snake Place

Harry Potter and That Mean Jail Man

Harry Potter and The Hot Cup

Harry Potter and The Bird Club

Harry Potter and The Guy With Only Some Blood

Harry Potter and Death 

it all makes sense now

I’m crying.
