I'm 21 years old, born and raised in Michigan, USA. Harry Potter's been in my life ever since I was 8. I accidentally started by reading Prisoner of Azkaban first. Whoops. My dad corrected me before I got too far, though.
I'm a fourth year English major, and I love fanfiction because it sharpens my writing skills, and of course, because I love Harry! I started doing it in the summer of 2011. I wrote my fanfictions in this order:
The First Howl
A Werewolf at Hogwarts
From Opposite Sides / Ways To Say Goodbye
My top five characters are Lupin, Hermione, Neville, Luna, and those hilarious Weasley twins. I can relate to Lupin and Luna the most, which is why I honored them in my pen name.
My favorite couple by far is Remus & Tonks, although Tonks' parents (Ted and Andromeda) have really grown on me, since I wrote their story. And I may or may not think that Hermione would've been better with Harry... Favorite couple that never happened? Neville and Luna!
You'll notice pretty quickly that the music I love inspires me in every way, whether it's chapter names or a sample of lyrics that go perfectly with the story. I'm also really inspired by the books I read, but If you ask me what they are, prepare for a long list :) It includes the Hunger Games trilogy and a load of books by Scott Westerfeld.
Thank you so much for letting me share my writing on here! Reviews are much appreciated.
Summary: Dread is the only thing that goes through Ariel Sachs’ mind as he embarks on his last year at Hogwarts. A place he’s grown to hate. He has no plans and no hopes for the future. The only constants in his life are his loneliness and his crush on Christian Ackerman, the Ravenclaw stud. Ariel soon realizes that his plans to quietly survive his last year won’t work, when he gets caught up in the preparations of the first wedding to be held at Hogwarts. On the way, he will find support from a couple of unexpected characters and maybe, even, meet that someone he has been longing for his entire life.
Summary: This is a story about a love of books. It is a story about a boy and a girl united by this love.
Perhaps there's a reason why Hermione Granger values frienship so strongly. Perhaps there's a reason why Hogwarts: A History means so much to her. And perhaps there's more to her life before Hogwarts than we have been told.
