Greetings Earthlings! My first name is actually Minerva, though Evenstar is from Lord of the Rings. I am a Virgo that has lost her sanity!
I LOVE TO READ fantasy books and poetry. The only works I cherish that are not those genres are A Separate Peace, The Outsiders, and Philippa Gregory's books. Emily Dickinson, Longfellow, and Shakespeare are the poets I enjoy most.
My favourite fantasies (besides Harry Potter) are: The Hobbit by John Ronald Raoul Tolkien Inheritance Trilogy (a.k.a. Eragon) by Christopher Paolini Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith Gaurdians of Time by Marianne Curley Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud Young Wizards by Diane Duane His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan Death Gate Cycle by Weis and Hickman The Adept by Kurtz and Harris Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer Children of the Red King by Jenny Nimmo 'Wolf' series by Jane Lindskold Midnight Predator by Amelia Atwater Rhodes Merry Gentry by Laurel K. Hamilton Sabriel by Garth Nix.
James/Lily - I favour the Marauders' era over Harry's. Who doesn't adore a lovehate relationship full of banter in a magical world at war?
Hermione/Draco - In the books I know Hermione shall end up with Ron, but I prefer fan fictions where she is with Draco because I dislike Ron; I think he is funny, but terribly shallow. Draco on the other hand...Well, an ambitious, rich boy belongs with a stubborn genius because they both have elegant taste and can put each other in their place.
Remus/Sirius - I know many of you are thinking,"Oh my gosh! Slash...EW!" Well, if homosexuality bothers you I pity you for being prejudice and closed-minded. I prefer fics about them when they are in school rather than as adults because they're more fun to read and compose. By the time they're adults they've suffered so much that I can't make the tale as light-hearted as I'd like. I know Remus is with Tonks in the novels, however, I am passionately in love with Remus. I found Tonks infuriatingly inquisitive and unorganised since Order of the Phoenix, (You know, the book where there was no indication of romance whatsoever between her and Remus?) so Remus is either Sirius' or HE'S MINE! Thanks, I just wanted to make that clear. lol
Regarding Reviews: I want to be a professional writer someday, so I appreciate constructive critism and I thrive on compliments! Flames, on the other hand, are useless to me. If a person flames me I make fun of them since I do not deserve to be flamed; nobody does. Ever notice that most flamers have none of their own stories? I have never, ever flamed anyone and I always review whatever I read.
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. & It matters not what someone is born but what they grow to be! J. K. Rowling (Dumbledore)
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. & The biggest mistake you can make is worrying you will make one. unknown
Do not walk in front of me, I may not follow. Do not walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend. Albert Camus
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death and judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. Gandalf (Tolkien)
The greatest ignorance is to reject something you known nothing about. & Don't judge those who try and fail. Judge only those who fail to try. & Don't wait for your ship to come in. Row out to meet it. H. Jackson Brown
When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unkown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly. Patrick Overton
The bird that would soar above the level of plain tradition and prejudice must have strong wings. It is a sad spectacle to see the weaklings, bruised, exhausted, fluttering back to earth. Kate Chopin
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear. Mark Twain
We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own. Ben Sweetland
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Elanor Roosevelt

Stand up for what is right even if you're standing alone. anonymous
If you would be pungent, be brief; for it is with words as with sunbeam - the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn. Robert Southey
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. Nelson Henderson
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Norman MacEwan
Don't be afraid to take big steps. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps. David Lloyd George
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Dr.Suess

"Love is unexplainable. There are no words for it. You can’t express why you feel so. It just happens," James said. "“Don’t you think that if I had the choice I would have chosen to love someone who didn’t hate me in return?”
“No,” Sirius said simply.
“You’re right.” James said, sighing. “I’m so screwed up, Padfoot.”
The drama-filled romantic tale of Lily and James's mysterious but unfortunate tale. It started with love and ended with death. It makes you wonder about the things they tried to live for. Pre-HBP

"Just one minute.” Lily noticed footsteps heading in her direction. She saw a hand reach from between the screens and drop a flower onto her bedside table.
“Mr. Potter! Return to your dormitory immediately!”
“Alright, alright…” The hand disappeared.
Once Lily was sure that no one was in the wing, he lifted her head and saw what flower Potter had dropped.
Lily stuffed her head in her pillow and screamed a muffled scream that no one could hear.
