Well, hullo. Name's Michael, but you can call me Lupinpatronus. My first fic, Through the Eyes of the Werewolf, has been accepted! This story chronicles Lupin's view of his sixth year at Hogwarts. Check it out and review if you wish! I'd be ever-so-grateful.
To give a good summary of my HP background, I've been in the Harry Potter community since 1999. My favorite book thus far is "Prisoner of Azkaban", despite that "Half-Blood Prince" really is the best in the series. My favorite character is most definitely Remus Lupin. Great man, great man. Oh, and my room is filled to the brim with Harry Potter merchandise. It's a little scary, actually...
When it comes to fan fiction, I'm always looking for a good story (psh, aren't we all?). I've found most of my favorite fics by simply browsing at random. I've discovered that I enjoy well-written humor fics, Marauders-era fics, and high-quality, by-the-book fics. Oh, and I highly recommend the writings of a good friend of mine in real life who hangs out here. Her name's Natasha_Johnson in this virtual land. I very much admire her writing style, so take a peek at her stories if you have the time!. Of course, on occasion I'll read something a little more elaborate. After all, if we went by all the details the lovely Ms. Rowling has set, it would take the fun out of fan fiction, now wouldn't it?
As far as outside interests, I hang out at the local library and do volunteer work there, I participate in Youth Radio, a teen-focused radio show which is part of the local sect of NPR Radio, I'm hoping to one day become a voice actor, I love animated films (especially the works of Disney and Studio Ghibli), I like going bowling with my friends, and I'll soon be going to college (oh my goodness!).
And that's really all you need to know about me for now. Take care and happy trails, friend.
