No, I'm not a parasitic fish, I'm a hyper, klutzy, random sophomore girl. Anyway, I'm really random and know all the words to "Knights of the Round Table" from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (love that movie), as well as most Les Miserables songs, by heart! I also want to be either a web designer or a writer of some sort when I grow up, but working with dolphins would be fun, too! I can solve a Rubik's Cube in 53 seconds and I LOVE chess. I also love my school's chess team captain. So is it any wonder that I love chess? Well, I didn't know he was the captain at first, so it's more like an added perk...
I am a proud Slytherin on the Forums. I banner and beta.
Favorite characters: Remus, Tonks, Luna and Sirius
OTP: Remus/Tonks, Neville/Luna, Tom/Minerva (Schmergo's drabble convinced me of this), Dumbledore/McGonagall and Sirius/Luna
Favorite creatures: thestrals and basilisk
Favorite writers: J.K. Rowling (of course), Victor Hugo and Dave Barry, all of whom I wish I could have just a shred of their talent!
I also write original fiction at The Red Chair. I'm Remora_The_Random. And feel free to add me on Live Journal, if you want. Just let me know how I know you so I don't go into cardiac arrest.
I may strike you as insane, but that's fine. I am, after all, the girl who named her rubber chicken "Gaylord Fontaine II," named the basilisk in COS Joe and gets up on her chair at lunch and sings random Monty Python and/or Les Miserables songs, as well as shouting things like "I'm on tv!" "You're my grandpa?" and "I'm magic!" in the middle of school, though none are strictly true. Yup. That's "Remora in a nutshell." Emphasis on "nut."
In closing, I would like to leave you with these words of wisdom: the coconut doesn't have a zipper.

Pride and Pre-Juiced Plums: A Potter's Pentagon Love Story by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 265]
Summary: A companion piece to the Potter's Pentagon trilogy... it's better if you've read the Potter's Pentagon trilogy, but you don't necessarily have to.
It's five years after Emma Weasley and her chums graduated from Hogwarts. Ted and Ivy are married, Haley is working at Madame Puddifoot's while trying desperately to break into show business, Jordan's doing whatever it is he does, and Emma is an Auror trainee working as a guard at the Chudley Cannons' stadium. The Cannons have actually been doing much better lately, due to their new star Beater, Tyrone Thomas. Unfortunately, Tyrone is Emma's ex-boyfriend. OH, THE AWKWARDNESS.
Follow Emma through her awkward adventures told in her usual insane way, as she experiences angst, hilarity, obnoxiously strange people, misadventures involving a deceptively dashing cad, Haley's wedding, the birth of Ted and Ivy's baby, and her own eventual descent into LURRRVE.

Summary: Ok, so I really really want to apologize to everyone that has read this and wanted more. I just... I got to a point of writer's block, big time... and I got lazy. I'm really really sorry about that. And, I wish I could add to this, but I just... I don't really have other ideas. I'm terrible at writing chapter work. I can never seem to finish it. So, I know it left off awkwardly, but odds are, it's gonna stay that way, at least for a very long while. I'm very sorry. And, heads up, I completely beyond appreciate everyone that has read and reviewed this. I saw the read count being over 22,000 today, and I was just like WOW. I never ever imagined that would happen!!! Anyways, this is pretty much the end of the story indefinitely, at least for now.
