Well, I'm 20 years old and I'm writing fan fics to develop my writing style for a BIG project I'm working on (don't ask) I like things that focus a lot on canon, but if they don't, I like a more substantial plot and solid characters.
Favorite Book: While I love all the books I still have to say that the third book remains my absolute favorite. I mean, that's the book where they introduced Lupin and Sirius! So sexy...
My favorite characters are the underdogs. I.E. Lupin, Luna, Neville, and Aberforth. Oh, and I totally love Tonks, she's the perfect compliment to Remus' character. I read HBP and I freaked out. I did a little dance that went something like, "Remus is getting some--" Uh... Er...
Well, you get the general idea...
I have written a poem that describes my current Harry Potter status:
Crazy little girl with a kettle on her head,
Walks around and says she's dead,
I know better, she's still whole
And not the imprint of a departed soul.
Grr...sex kittens...very grrr...
My favorite books outside the Potterverse are:
The Decameron, by Giovanni Boccaccio (some of my work utilizes his words, check out "A Kissed Mouth" I like this because it's like a million stories in one and Shakespeare based a lot of his plays on Boccaccio's work--seriously.)
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (BEST CHICK BOOK EVER...so violent!)
Frankenstein, The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelly (best feminist book EVER)
Practical Magic/Turtle Moon/Seventh Heaven all by the loverly Alice Hoffman (if you've seen any movies based on her books, I apologize...they are horrible)
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco (did you know he was the world first BONDOLOGIST??? That is ... the study of James Bond...)
The Bible (Okay, everyone is going to misunderstand this so let me clarify: I like the Bible as a historical book and as a mythology book because it has so many wonderful stories and allegories to tell)
And of course, like an obligatory fan girl, I love Lord of the Rings and Chron-WHAT?-cles of Narnia. There, I said it...aren't you happy now that we have SOO much in common?
V for Vendetta, The Royal Tenenbaums, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, HERO, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Kill Bill (Vol. 1&2); Moulin Rouge; Dawn of the Dead (Oldschool Version), King Kong, Snatch, Grindhouse, Chinatown, Pan's Labyrinth, Rear Window, North by Northwest
Now you know everything there is to know about me. Except my Klingon name...which I don't know either so we're square!
Summary: Remus Lupin tolerates mischievous friends and lycanthropy, while the prophetic Ariadne MacDougal negotiates a misguided family, and everyone must deal with the Death Eaters. A rather dark coming-of-age story about the death of innocence and the renewal of hope during Voldemort’s first war.
Part I of The Moon-Cursers. Now updated to be DH-compatible.
Summary: “Imperius… Werewolves…You-Know-Who…” The last words of a dying man force Remus Lupin into a dangerous investigation at the infamous Feral Institute. Sequel to Oblivious; pre-reading would be useful but it isn’t vital.
Summary: Yes, yes I know...the visual is enough to turn you off! (Run screaming and gagging in total disgust! Bleegggghhh!) Alright...get your minds out of the gutter! There will be no wrinkled old bodies wrestling and sweating in the throes of passion here. These are NOT hormonally driven teenagers. Rating is for subject matter only (I mean they actually mention the word…SEX! Horrors!). I have just often wondered if there wasn't something going on between these old fogies. JKR seems to hint at an intimate sort of playfulness between them and I decided to investigate that aspect. This is a one-shot complete character analysis. I hope you enjoy it and it doesn't give anyone nightmares. Let me know how you're sleeping...
Summary: COMPLETE. A woman visits Hogwarts expressly to meet Severus Snape. Her eccentric aunt led her to believe that he was the kindest, handsomest man to ever grace the earth. What will she do when she discovers the awful truth - let a few minor imperfections stand in the way of romance? Highly Improbable has been recognized by the Multifaceted Awards as Winner in the Laughter Category and Runner-Up in the Identity Category (Best Original Character), and also by MNFF's first annual Quicksilver Quills Awards. Thanks, MuggleNet!
Summary: What if there were more to Remus Lupin's bite than a badly timed stroll in the woods? The arrival of a feral invokes secrets of the past and terror for the present...
