I solemnly swear I am up to no good…
12 January 2008:
I'd like to wish a happy new year to everyone and, regrettably, inform you that I won't be writing a lot of fanfiction anymore. I don't have the time to contribute to it anymore and what time I do have I would like to put towards writing something original that hopefully you will all see on a Borders shelf someday. "Of the Cursed" will be deleted, and you can consider Harry's adventure to continue in a canon-like fashion from the end of "Cruciatus Cursed" onward. I'm so sorry, but thank you for your support, and I'm glad to have pleased you with most of my works. : )
Hello to you, fellow Harry Potter fans. I am Miss Moony, and welcome to my profile. There isn’t much to say about me, nor do I care to say a lot about myself anyway, so here are the important things that you might need to know for future reference if you care to read my stories:
I write only the following ships: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Remus/Tonks.
My favourite characters are Remus Lupin (bet you never could have guessed), Sirius Black, and Snape.
My least favourite characters are Voldemort (go figure) and Dumbledore (I have my reasons).
My favourite HP books are Prisoner of Azkaban and Order of the Phoenix
Patience is a virtue that I do not possess. Therefore, if I can update quickly, trust me when I say I will.
I answer all reviews I receive. Period.
If you are bored and care to read an excellent fiction, may I suggest Nuw255, Tagidi Riva, Abbs866, or weasleybabe24? They are fantastic.
That’s about all at the moment, so I hope you enjoy my fictions and that you will leave a review if you have some time. I would really appreciate it. Below are some quotes that you may peruse for fun at your leisure if you are bored enough (as I collect a good many of them), and the banner for my first posted fiction, “Cruciatus Cursed”.
If you actually read this without getting bored and taking a break halfway through, then coming back to it later, I shall be quite impressed.
