    Why You're In SPEW: I love reviewing! It's so satisfying, telling someone what a lovely job they've done.
    Favourite Non-HP Reading Material: Gone With The Wind, anything by Dennis Lehane and Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta series. Yeah, I like a lot of crime stuff, but I also like kiddy stuff.
    What You Do When You're Not Online: I read. And write. And go to school. And eat out. Oh, and somewhere in between I do all the boring stuff, like sleeping.
    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Write/Be Known For: Fluff and romance, although lately with my Dark/Angsty James/Lily WIP I have been writing darker stuff -- although still with romance in it!
    Favourite MNFF Authors/Stories: ToBeEtc, Equinox Chick, Gmariam, jenny b, hestiajones, Northumbrian, MagEd, Kerichi and loads of others!
    Favourite Pairings/Characters: James/Lily, Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione and Remus/Tonks
    Favourite Story You've Written: Checkmate! My baby. It's still a work in progress but what I've written is probably my best work.
    Three Random Things About Yourself:
    Erm...I'm Muslim. I've written a novel. I love...chips and chicken!

    Hello! The newbie tiara is very pretty

    Name: Alex
    Penname/Author's Page: welshdevondragon
    House: I find myself temporarily in Hufflepuff, but really I belong in Gryffindor
    Why You're In SPEW: I really like reading good fanfiction, and am looking forward to being able to discuss it with other people/ get recommendations and also actually write good reviews rather than my old "that was amazing!" ones. I am getting better though.
    Favourite Non-HP Reading Material: Ummm...a long list. George Eliot, Camus, Dostoyevsky- most 19th century Russians actually, Austen, Raymond Carver, Alice Munro, David Mitchell (not the comedian, the author), AS Byatt, Jennette Winterson. They are all geniuses and seriously I could go on. Recently however I've been reading Sandman comics.
    What You Do When You're Not Online: Read Sandman comics at the moment. Write, knit, try and understand the Dublin transport system enough to get to the sea. Read. Make disastrous attempts at cooking.
    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Write/Be Known For: I don't think I'm known for anything really, but I tend to write dark stories where characters aren't usually that nice to each other. And I really love writing OCs.
    Favourite MNFF Authors/Stories: fg_weasley, ToBeOrNotToBeGryffindor, ron lover, Hatusu.
    Favourite Pairings/Characters: Characters- Hagrid, McGonagall, Molly Weasley. I like most canon pairings but think at some point in their lives Neville and Luna were together.
    Favourite Story You've Written: I think "Thin Red Lines" just because it is the longest story I've started and completed. There's a novel twice as long on my laptop, but it isn't finished. When it is (and when it's got a title) that'll be my favourite just because I've been writing it since I was fourteen.
    Three Random Things About Yourself: (1)I either want to be a theatre director or archaeologist "when I grow up", but definitely want to be a writer.
    (2)I love travelling and am desperate to go to Kashmir and Ladakh, in India.
    (3) The floor in my room is invisible due to being covered in clothing, books and uni notes.

    What You Do When You're Not Online: Sleep. Eat. Play piano. Watch movies. Fangirl Harry and Darren Criss...
    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Write/Be Known For: Dark/Angsty. Gotta love it! I've also written a fluff fic, weirdly enough.
    Favourite MNFF Authors/Stories: A few samples...Hatusu, Colores, Black Iris, FullofLife, the_bartender713.
    Favourite Pairings/Characters: I'm so canon it's sad. Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione.
    Favourite Story You've Written: Leaves I wrote it years ago and I'm still really proud of it!
    Three Random Things About Yourself: My cat is evil, I'm going to college/university next year, and I love Asian food even though I'm Italian ().
