    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reading the introduction of our most recent and adorable newbie, I realised how that particular thread is getting a bit outdated.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.

    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.

    Hello, dears!

    Name: Haylee

    Penname/Author's Page: XhayleeXblackX - Author's Page

    House: Slytherin . . . hiss . . .

    Why You're In SPEW:

    Because itís awesome, duh. Nah, just kidding, well it is awesome, but Iím here to grow as a reviewer and a writer, and to share what I can with others. Also to have some fun, read some great stories, and meet new people.

    Favourite Non-HP Reading Material:

    Oh dear, this is hard. Well, I like the Leven Thumps series; itís kind of lighthearted and sort of similar to the style of HP. I love To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, Angela's Ashes, and other than that, I haven't read much outside of the things I have been assigned to read in school.

    What You Do When You're Not Online:

    Oh, the usual: read, write, have plot bunny brainstorms and psychotic dreams. Otherwise, I'm getting ready to go off to my freshman year of college to study Psychology, which scares me to death. I like to hang out with my family and friends, drink iced latte's (addicted), and just listen to music.

    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Write/Be Known For:

    Hm, Draco fics, I suppose. I donít really have enough to be known for anything or big followings, so I donít know what I would be known for other than Draco.

    Favourite MNFF Authors/Stories:

    NikkiSue, Social Loner, Sarakime, and Leahsm2 are all in my favorite authors for sure, and I love Euphrates' and Lalalalatinaís poetry. As for favorite stories, the legendary Sins of the Father (which I think you will all be familiar with ), Broken Souls by kingbobrules, First Comes Friendship by Social Loner, and Nicoleís Safe Haven. I know I have many others that I adored, but I canít remember them because I usually only save chaptered stories in my favorites.

    Favourite Pairings/Characters:

    Draco is my favorite character, but I also love Harry, Oliver Wood, Narcissa, and Ron. I really like reading Dramione fics, I'm a confessed addict, and I like the occasional Ron/Hermione, Rose/Scorpius, or Lucius/Narcissa story.

    Favourite Story You've Written:

    A Black Rose. I really think that itís some of my best work, but I also love the Narcissa one-shot I recently wrote, which I am dying to submit. So itís a tie between those two. Out of my poetry though, I would have to say that I am most proud of Silent Prisoner, Mindless Toy.

    Three Random Things About Yourself:

    1. I have spacing OCD issues.
    2. I donít really care all that much for chocolate. *dodges tomatoes*
    3. I call everyone dear.

    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 You Do When You're Not Online: Well, school is time-consuming, that's for sure. -_- But I also like to just hang out with my friends, sing, write (I know, crazy), and read. Music is my other passion; I'm quite a nerd about it, really. Oh, and I adore football [soccer], particularly German football. Like, a lot.
    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.
    Favourite MNFF Authors/Stories: Anything by Noldo is pure love. I also enjoy reading Marie-Antoinette by Tinn Tam, Tangled by Bella_Mia, and Meant to Be by chloish.
    Favourite Pairings/Characters: James/Lily, Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny, Andromeda/Ted, Leanne/Sirius, Mar/Regulus...I've also been known to like Narcissa/Lucius, Remus/Tonks, and various rare pairs. I can be pretty open when it comes to ships, though I tend towards canon.
    Favourite Story You've Written: Meh, I don't really have one. It changes every time I write something new. At the moment I'm favoring Brothers On A Hotel Bed and You Can Sit On Chimneys.
    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.

    Favourite Pairings/Characters: Marie/Regulus, Cedric/Katie, Harry/Siobhan, Ron/Hermione, Leanne/Sirius, gotta love the Marauders, Weasley twins are fabulous, etc.

    Three Random Things About Yourself:
    1. I have a twin. -points to Leanne's profile directly above-
    2. My music infatuation is more of being as necessary as oxygen.
    3. Regulus is not my first imaginary boyfriend. Heavens, no. But don't tell him that.
