I am determined to change this ridiculously out of date page.
My name is Laura, twenty years old, and a student at Durham University. Yes, that can at times mean I am an opinionated know-it-all, but usually only to do with matters occuring during the 16th and 17th Century. I'm originally from South Yorkshire, reside in Nottinghamshire, and generally end up all over the place.
I have an obsessive love for a dead woman called Anne Boleyn. Everytime I hear Phillipa Gregory's posh voice talk about how this "remarkable woman" changed the face of England, it makes me inspired to write a better story than the hideous one that she did with "The Other Boleyn Girl". Not that this is my only reason for spending so much time engrossed in history books only vaguely relevent to my course. I love Anne because she is a woman of so many ambiguities. The more I learn about her, the more I realise how little we know of her. She is my muse for many small projects and I have ambitions she'll be the muse for a big one, too.
I love horse riding, writing, banner-making and reading Snape-centric fanfiction. I have an imagination more interesting than my life and am very rubbish at coping with simple things, like walking in the right direction. I am happy to waste away an afternooh watching Top Gear or go for a stroll in my local park with my doggy called Sarah and car called Musher.
I enjoy travelling, evident by my around-the-world trip to Australia, China, New Zealand and America last summer. Countries I hope to visit include Ireland, Paris (plus France again, I guess), Africa, Italy, South America and various others.
You may notice a few stories missing. I'm sorry to say that I don't see myself completing them, so I feel it's only fair to delete them so that people aren't anticipating chapters that will never arrive. I did have fun writing them, but it's just a case of not having time to complete them!
Summary: A procrastinating Potions master puts his worst foot forward as he makes an unwavering, albeit unconventional attempt to prevent Hermione's marriage. Will forty-eight hours afford Severus Snape sufficient time to convince her that he is a supercilious and unmitigated nuisance? Written in response to the Spring Faire Festival's "I Want to Kiss the Bride" story option.
