    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.

    *Squishes*

    Name: Hannah though I will also answer to Bob (it's a long story ) However, feel free to call me either!

    Penname/Author's Page: Ta-da!

    House: Slytherin

    Why You're In SPEW: I had a sudden realisation a while ago that I love to review and I thought what better place to use it than in SPEW

    Favourite Non-HP Reading Material: I have almost no time to read anything for pleasure anymore. Most of the things I read now are for school. When I do read for pleasure however, I am terrible in that I don't go for classics but for some lighthearted girly rubbish.

    What You Do When You're Not Online: I'm in my last year of school preparing for my A Levels so I suppose working is the main thing I do when I'm not online. And I play the clarinet a lot

    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Write/Be Known For: R/Hr is my OTP and what I tend to find most inspiring to write but my Author's page is a mix of all sorts of things from DA to a bit of light-hearted fluff. I almost always write one-shots however. I dont have the attention span to write an epic chaptered fic.

    Favourite MNFF Authors/Stories: My three favourite stories on MNFF are: A Little More Time by Pallas (which I am slightly obsessed with and think is amazing!), Denial by little beloved (which is kind of crazy really as it's a Snape/Hermione and my OTP is Ron/Hermione, not to mention the fact that I tend to be a strict canon shipper. This fic just happens to be really really good) and Great Expectations by Cassandras Cross (which is a H/G, R/Hr and a really wonderful fic mixing romance with a bit of mystery. I tend to have favourite fics rather than authors but I love pretty much all of Carole (Equinox Chick's) writing.

    Favourite Pairings/Characters: Well I may have already mentioned this (like several times ) but my favourite characters are R/Hr. I actually prefer to write Ron rather than Hermione however. I usually stick to trio era stories and very rarely venture into Marauder unless I stumble across things, like I did with MagEd's Someone to Watch Over Me.

    Favourite Story You've Written:

    hmm...'I Want to Go Home' will always be special because it was first, but I was most pleased with Wake Up when it was finish - though I do look back and doubt it. Because my fics all tend to be different, I'm quite fond of them all for different reasons.

    Three Random Things About Yourself:

    1. I'm going on a five week trip to Australia this summer which I am unbelievably excited for as I have been wanting to go for years and have finally saved the money to get myself there.

    2. I'm going to uni in September to study History and Politics

    3. I tend to make long rambly posts (a little bit like this one ) which probably don't interest people that much!

    Adrian won a QSQ! Thanks to Minnabird for the beautiful banner. Click on it to read Stolen Magic - the story of the second wizarding war through a very different character's eyes.

    Why You're In SPEW: I love to review, generally because I like helping people improve their writing. Plus, I believe reviewing somebody else helps me improve, too, so yeah.

    Favourite Non-HP Reading Material: Gah >.> So many books/authors I could list. Here's a few for you: I love the Noughts and Crosses trilogy [although there's actually four books now lmao] by Malorie Blackman. The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer is excellent. I like Philippa Gregory... Hm. Yeah.

    What You Do When You're Not Online: Not much. Haha. I read and write a lot in my spare time, but I do watch films fairly regularly and I love just sitting in the sun in the summer months. <33

    What Kind Of Stories You Tend To Write/Be Known For: Most of the stories on my author's page are general, but lately I have wrote tonnes of D/A stuff that is either in drabble form or unfinished. I drabble all of my favourite pairings quite a lot too, and hopefully I'll write a decent length one soon Best known for... I have no idea, because at the moment I do have a wide variety up.

    Favourite MNFF Authors/Stories: Persephone, by obsessed_with_jo. I like Poppy Seeds, by Nikki/fg_weasley, Daddy, by blondebouncingferret.

    Favourite Pairings/Characters: But I have so many... >.> Okay, here's a few: Severus/Lily, Sirius/Lily, Remus/Lily, Narcissa/Lucius, Rose/Scorpius, Draco/Hermione, Snape/Hermione, Remus/Tonks... I'll stop now. Characters - I like Remus, Tonks, Sirius and Hermione.

    Favourite Story You've Written: I like Twilit Woods and Finding the Magic best. I couldn't pick.

    Three Random Things About Yourself:

    [1] I have been added to two MNFF clubs in the last week [Dumbledore's Navy and SPEW].
    [2] I love to take pictures, but I hate being in anybody else's.
    [3] This is corny, but I love Abba.

    I just realised how much I said 'I like' in this post >.<
