Call me Aji. I am an eighteen-year-old student who studies architecture, though my real dream since I was six was to do animation. I am an artist; I draw and design. Writing and reading are my passion, coming in second behind my love for sketching.
People see me as a boring nerd whose everyday ritual is devoid of any social activity, which is partially true; I am a nerd and I don't socialise as much as one would normally. I am split whether I am a boring person or not. My best friend and very close friends would surely say no, but my sisters would probably say yes. I guess, for you to know, it would depend on our level of interaction as acquaintances.
-Contrary to popular belief, I am, in fact, a creature with two X-chromosomes.
-I tend to buy lots of books and leave most of them in my bookshelf unread due to my busy schedule.
-I'm an Evangelical Christian who is the only one in a Roman Catholic clan.
-I have been single all my life and I prefer it that way until--dare I say it?--marriage. And religion/belief is not the reason (well, partly), can you believe it? It's because boys are too high-maintenance. I love my 'Me' time.
-I already have names for my future children, and they are based on Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl. If I wouldn't be able to conceive, I'll adopt.
-I love Monty Python, A Very Potter Musical, Potter Puppet Pals, Phineas&Ferb, and Glee.
-I had a crush on Chris Colfer when they did Vogue in Glee.
-I hate Twilight. End of.
-During schooldays, I tend to down more or less five cups of coffee.
-I've gone more than three days without sleep. That's normal for architecture students.
-I've never smoked. The smell is nauseating.
-I love swearing colourfully and I borrow swearwords from my favourite books and shows. Dobby's sock.
-I did karate and achieved a black belt and a purple belt in two styles/systems/schools. Beware.
-I read mangas, and I prefer them over anime. I am picky with what I read though.
-I love thick books.
-My favourite punctuations are the semi-colon and em-dash.
My Writing, A History.
JK Rowling inspired me. I was amazed upon reading Harry Potter when I was twelve. That's when I began to write. And also discovered fan fiction. Puberty immensely affected my writing at that time; my genre was clichéd and shallow romance (that I have had no idea about, but I wrote them anyway) and my characters were Sues. My ego had been overly inflated by nonsensically praising reviews. When I realised that my writing was horrid, I left fan fiction for two or three years while trying to make my writing better. Afterwards, I wrote my Harry Potter fan fiction Albus Severus which was quite decent. Then I had another year of writing nothing until I decided to do Artemis Fowl flash fiction exercises to keep what I've improved on so far from deteriorating. I collected them in my A Nib's Babble in Fanfiction.net under the penname xybolic.
My writing is mostly in the humour genre. I think of myself as unfunny and not witty at all, so it makes me wonder how in the world this happened. Hilarious one-liners are hard to come by, and when they do (rarely, mind), I sort of build a humourous situation around it. That's how I write. Eoin Colfer also probably influenced me.
I have yet to find my writing style. I usually have hiatus more often than I write so my writing is a tad undeveloped. I'm trying though, since it's my dream to be published.

Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.
What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.
Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, are proud to present a Symphony for Quartet.

James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens
. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.

It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.
If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.
This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)

Episode 9 is up!
*****Excerpt from a later chapter*****
"Haven’t you heard the rumors about her – one date Weasley
“One date what!?” Harry stared at Hermione dumfounded. He turned his head towards Ginny who once again started snogging Dean. Dean’s hands wandered to his girlfriend’s bum as she pulled the lower half of his body closer. “Hmm… makes sense,” he admitted.
“Anytime she brings up that sort of thing, I try to act like I have loads of experience too, but actually I have no idea what I’m talking about.”
“But what about you and Krum?” Harry asked, still visibly uncomfortable about their conversation.
“Oooh big deal. So we kissed a couple times. That means I must be a demon in the sack,” Hermione answered sarcastically. “Look, I was thinking…” Hermione started to blush. “I need to find someone I know to you know… practice with.”

What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.

Mischief happens; for sixth-year Gryffindor, Andran Audierus, it's somewhat expected. Clumsiness also happens, and for New student Marti Owlsten, it's more of a way of life. Put these two together, and they may end up in over their heads in trouble... and toothpaste. Insults, ransom notes, magical dares, pranks... will they make it to their seventh year in one piece?
**This is a post-HP7 fic, by about ten to fifteen years... but that doesn't mean their won't be familiar faces. Lots of humor, butn also a good plot line, too**

Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.

Meet James Potter, a clever, somewhat mischievous, popular student at Hogwarts. He takes every situation in stride and has everything under control, except one: Lily Evans, an amazingly beautiful and intelligent individual. He loves her more than anything, but she despises him more than anything, and a not-so-impressive run-in late at night with her leaves James thinking that chasing after Lily might be hopeless. Then, a series of events happen in James' life, which is topped off by an unexpected visitor that makes his sixth year too sweet to remember.

Alright everyone, the end is here! *dramatic gasp* I really hope you all enjoy it, and don't forget to look out for my new story, Prologue: The Beginning. Thanks!
What's happening: It's their seventh year. James is desperate to get Lily, and, at the Hogwarts Express, promises to never ask her out again, and offers that the two become friends. When Lily accepts, James's spirits soar, but since she doesn't like him that way, and he can't ask her out, how will he ever have her for his own?
A special thanks to my sister Kitty and my best friend Emilea for listening to my ideas and reading the story in its entirety! Couldn't have done it without them!
And thanks to my new beta, Emily/LaneTechFreshie! You've been great!
Happy reading! :)
