    SPEW Members Introductions

    Hello, dearest SPEW.

    When reading the introduction of our most recent and adorable newbie, I realised how that particular thread is getting a bit outdated. Several members have had to leave us for various reasons, and most of those who introduced us early on should probably update our information anyway. So, instead of deleting the introductions written by our old members and asking everyone else to update theirs, my dear Vice President and I decided that it was time for a new thread. The introduction form is slightly altered from last time, and we hope that you will enjoy filling it out as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

    My apologies to all newbies for the slight inconvenience. If anyone would like to view the old thread, it has been transferred to the SPEW Archive.

    Name: Jenna
    Penname/Author's Page: GringottsVault711 [primary] The Vault [6th/7th Years/Professors fics]
    House: Slytherin
    Why You’re In SPEW: It’s really about the writing for me; and the fellowship.
    Favourite Non-HP Reading Material: Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman, and authors of modernism and from the early 20th century in general - Somerset Maugham, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Graham Greene, Kate Chopin. A small collection of graphic novels, including the Sin City series. I also have a fondness for Ian McEwan, and am considering delving into Bernard Schlink.
    What You Do When You're Not Online: I work at a petshop, and do mundane things like cleaning and cooking. And of course their is reading.
    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Write/Be Known For: I tend to be known for writing scandalous stories, really. I find it more natural to write stories with an element of darkness, though that darkness isn't always necessarily prominent; it often is, though. I'm probably best known for my seventh-year fic, Blood Debt, and my WIP centred around my OC, Siobhan Murphy. And for writing rarepairs. Though I do occasionally suprise people with a James/Lily or *looks at most recent WIP*, Draco/Ginny.
    Favourite MNFF Authors/Stories: Authors: Fantasium, electronicquillster, dory_the_fishie, Slian Martreb, Vindictus Viridian, bittersweet_lullaby. Stories: Vacillation & Volition by Fantasium. It Matches Your Eyes by bittersweet_lullaby, Even Fallen Angels Love by Vindictus Viridian, When The Church Bells Ring by TheVanishingAct. The Moon People by Ennalee.
    Favourite Pairings/Characters: I'm a Harry fangirl. Whenever it seems I might have forgotten him, I haven't. It all comes back to Harry. I also love Lily, Narcissa, Lucius, and Fleur. And the founders My favourite pairings are: Siobhan/Lucius, Lily/Narcissa, Harry/Katie, Ron/Hermione, Tom/Minerva, and Rowena/Salazar.
    Favourite Story You've Written: Sins of the Father, as far as WIPs, and I Know Who You Are.
    Three Random Things About You:
    I like tea, my favourite being Twining's Irish Breakfast.
    I have lived in four countries.
    I love lockets, keys and frog princes.

    Name: Aska
    Author's Page: I consider this to be my page at the main site.
    House: I didn’t know they sort dogs now?
    Why You're In SPEW: I’m the mascot. I keep an eye on things.
    Favourite Non-HP Reading Material: Don’t Shoot the Dog by Karen Pryor, A Way of Life by H Glyn Jones, How to Photograph Dogs by Nick Ridley, and anything by Barbara Sykes.
    What You Do When You're Not Online: I practice being cute and cuddly, I make sure that my little brother Sirius behaves, and I empty the toy-box so that he can put them everything back again. I also like to do some herding, lie on Ashley’s bed, and occasionally I do some light begging.
    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Be Known For: Ones where I’m perfectly sweet and obedient. Fiction is nice that way.
    Favourite MNFF Stories: Noir House by Marie and It’s A Dog’s Life by Steph – I’m in both of them.
    Favourite Characters: Hagrid seems fun, but a bit irresponsible. I like McGonagall and Dumbledore; I would obey them. Then there is Charlie Weasley who has got the right idea about animals; he seems very nice. The same goes for that other character I’ve been hearing so much about, Liam Something.

    Three Random Things About Yourself:

    - A nasty accident involving lots of acid took place while I was being conceived.
    - My favourite non-meat treat is cucumber.

    Penname/Author's Page: I like one-shots, what can I say?
    House: Hufflepuff, yo
    Why You're In SPEW: I think the question is - why wasn't I before? I love leaving reading/reviewing fics, and the people here are just teh amazing.

    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Write/Be Known For: I may or may not have a lot of Dark/Angsty fics. -shifty eyes- I've written some romance as well. I think I'm mostly known for writing fics about the Blacks.

    Three Random Things About Yourself: 1. I'm a twin (both online and in RL...though in RL, my twin is male). 2. I'm addicted to chapstick (actually, Burt's Bees). 3. I like to write on my hand, and usually it's a song lyric that pops into my head.

    House: Hufflepuff!
    Why You're In SPEW: Because I figured that it was an excellent step towards my goal of world domination. Just kidding! I'm here because I've been the happy recipiant of several SPEW reviews and I would very much like to give that feeling of happiness to other writers.
    Favourite Non-HP Reading Material: The Hours (Michael Cunningham) is a favorite of mine. Michener's Hawaii and Patrick Dennis' Auntie Mame, though, remain my favorite books of all time. I am fond of just about anything that comes my way, though I do prefer happy endings.
