Bio:
My name's Crystal and I hail from Indianapolis, IN. I've been on MNFF for a couple of years, attempting to spread my creativity through a few fanfic stories! I've been HP obsessed since I saw the first movie in theaters (sadly, I had not been exposed to the books beforehand). I'm a big fan of fantasy-type stories (His Dark Materials, Narnia, HP, Stardust, Eragon, etc), and I often wish I could wave a wand, say a word, and magic would happen. I'm married, 23 years old, a flight instructor for small single-engine aircraft, and a part-time manager at a movie theater.

Favorite HP Book: I've been leaning towards Prisoner of Azkaban, but I think Deathly Hallows has finally won out as my favorite. I LOVE PoA for the story of the Marauders, the way they banded together, created the map, became Animagi to support Lupin, but also for the heartbreaking way in which they were torn apart. The particular part in the story where Harry watches his Patronus gallop and realizes why it has taken the form of a stag, then whispers 'Prongs' still gives me goosebumps. Deathly Hallows was the perfect wrap up for the series. There was so much character development and such an intricate plot, it's amazing to think it all started with such a simple story like Sorcerer's Stone. A few chapters in particular that I love reading over and over are The Silver Doe, The Prince's Tale, and The Forest Again. Such a great series, with all props of course going to the amazing JK Rowling.

Favorite HP Movie: I have the say, the latest Half-Blood Prince really stands out in my mind. The cinematography is beautifully done, it's very entertaining, and the majority of the story is actually there. There were a few parts that failed miserably (the ending, the missing battle, and Harry and Ginny's relationship post-kiss), but it covered the jist, and I loved it! Kudos to Tom Felton, he really stepped up his game for this one, now that he was actually given some lines!

Favorite HP Ships: I'm a big fan of canon ships. The story has to be really believable and the players have to stay for the most part in character for me to stray. One exception of course is the Draco/Ginny pairing. You can write the story of the innocent red-head and the Slytherin prince a hundred different ways, and it usually promises a good read. As long as no one is OOC and their change is believable. I hate Ron or Hermione with anyone except Ron or Hermione. Get those D/Hr and H/Hr stories out of here. OK, I have one more exception. One of my absolute favorite fics is a Hermione/Riddle time-travel fic, which sounds so outrageous, but well worth the read. It's under my list of favorites if you're curious.
