Bio:



Greetings Earthlings! My first name is actually Minerva, though Evenstar is from Lord of the Rings. I am a Virgo that has lost her sanity!




I LOVE TO READ fantasy books and poetry. The only works I cherish that are not those genres are A Separate Peace, The Outsiders, and Philippa Gregory's books. Emily Dickinson, Longfellow, and Shakespeare are the poets I enjoy most.

My favourite fantasies (besides Harry Potter) are: The Hobbit by John Ronald Raoul Tolkien Inheritance Trilogy (a.k.a. Eragon) by Christopher Paolini Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith Gaurdians of Time by Marianne Curley Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud Young Wizards by Diane Duane His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan Death Gate Cycle by Weis and Hickman The Adept by Kurtz and Harris Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer Children of the Red King by Jenny Nimmo 'Wolf' series by Jane Lindskold Midnight Predator by Amelia Atwater Rhodes Merry Gentry by Laurel K. Hamilton Sabriel by Garth Nix.




I ship:

James/Lily - I favour the Marauders' era over Harry's. Who doesn't adore a lovehate relationship full of banter in a magical world at war?

Hermione/Draco - In the books I know Hermione shall end up with Ron, but I prefer fan fictions where she is with Draco because I dislike Ron; I think he is funny, but terribly shallow. Draco on the other hand...Well, an ambitious, rich boy belongs with a stubborn genius because they both have elegant taste and can put each other in their place.

Remus/Sirius - I know many of you are thinking,"Oh my gosh! Slash...EW!" Well, if homosexuality bothers you I pity you for being prejudice and closed-minded. I prefer fics about them when they are in school rather than as adults because they're more fun to read and compose. By the time they're adults they've suffered so much that I can't make the tale as light-hearted as I'd like. I know Remus is with Tonks in the novels, however, I am passionately in love with Remus. I found Tonks infuriatingly inquisitive and unorganised since Order of the Phoenix, (You know, the book where there was no indication of romance whatsoever between her and Remus?) so Remus is either Sirius' or HE'S MINE! Thanks, I just wanted to make that clear. lol




Regarding Reviews: I want to be a professional writer someday, so I appreciate constructive critism and I thrive on compliments! Flames, on the other hand, are useless to me. If a person flames me I make fun of them since I do not deserve to be flamed; nobody does. Ever notice that most flamers have none of their own stories? I have never, ever flamed anyone and I always review whatever I read.




Favourite Quotes:

It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. & It matters not what someone is born but what they grow to be! J. K. Rowling (Dumbledore)

If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. & The biggest mistake you can make is worrying you will make one. unknown

Do not walk in front of me, I may not follow. Do not walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend. Albert Camus

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death and judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. Gandalf (Tolkien)

The greatest ignorance is to reject something you known nothing about. & Don't judge those who try and fail. Judge only those who fail to try. & Don't wait for your ship to come in. Row out to meet it. H. Jackson Brown

When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unkown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly. Patrick Overton

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Elanor Roosevelt

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Dr.Suess

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. Leo Tolstoy

Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands. Ernest Gaines
