I am a crazy 15-year-old Harry Potter fan with a passion for writing. Seriously, I'm an insane person. I belong in a padded cell with jackets that make you hug yourself. But then, brilliance is often accompanied with insanity... ;)
Basic Info: I am American, and I live in Oklahoma (aka Most Boring Place On Earth). Unless you like cows and greasy burgers, never come here. I'm in high school, and I currently plan to get into Harvard, be an English Major, visit Europe, and then have six husbands, fourteen children, and an assortment of sheep.
Favorite HP Characters: Ginny, Loony-Tune, The Twins, Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, Bellatrix, Draco Malfoy, Lily Evans, Severus, Dumbledore, Lord Moldy-Shorts, Sirius, Dung, and FANG!!! Heehee, I would totally be a double-agent for the Order.
Favorite HP Book: This has always been difficult for me, because I change my mind a lot. I hate to do this to you, because I hate when other people do it, but I like them all! I'm reading the series to my dad, and we just started the sixth book. :)
Favorite Ships: I love the idea of Sev and Lily getting together, and I have a dogged determination about it. And, though it's incredibly cliche, and I've made it clear that I HATE cliches, I'm currently knee-deep in Dramione. I think Their Child-of Voldemort's, by Professor Mary is what did it for me. She's very talented.
Favorite Fanfics: One of my big inspirations is Schmerg_the_Impaler; she's brilliant and makes me laugh. Go read her fics NOW! I also like Equinox Chick. There's something about her style that makes my fingers get an itch to write. I'm currently reading Daughter of the Dark Side by Lyra Lestrange (a lovely, irresistible plot) and Calliope and Thalia and Their Inspiration by lucilla_pauie (LOVING IT!).
Favorite Non-HP Books: I love the Casson Series by Hilary McKay, with her simple, ditsy characters that make me laugh! I also like Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild, anything by Roald Dahl, True Grit by Chris Portis, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen's stuff and Lillian Jackson Braune's "Cat Who" series. I tried reading Gone with the Wind, but Scarlett O'Hara just really, REALLY got on my nerves. I hate her smelly guts.
Favorite Movies: The Princess Bride, Funny Girl, Tangled, Lord of the Rings, Zorro, Soul Surfer, My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding, A Streetcar Named Desire, Clue, Fight Club, and many, many, MANY others.
Favorite TV Shows: My mom and I watch Gilmore Girls every night, and my best friend got me way into House at the beginning of the school year. I also love watching The Middle, Monk, and Psych. I practically LIVE on USA Channel. And maybe I watch Wizards of Waverly Place every now and then... so sue me...
Other Fun Facts:
1. I have zero hand-eye coordination, resulting in a very early attraction to books.
2. I'm a bit of a hermit, doing most of my social interaction over the Internet.
3. The only thing I ever got up early for was a trip to Universal Orlando with my mom last June, for obvious reasons.
4. I still believe in Santa Claus.
5. I also believe in the Great Pumpkin.
6. I once spent forty dollars of iTunes giftcards on absolutely nothing but Showtunes.
7. I hold the record for Most Coffee Consumed in a Twenty-Four Hour Period.
8. In math class, when my teacher asks me to find x, I circle it in red and draw an arrow.
10. I skipped number nine.
To Anyone Who Misses Me, Or Thinks I'm Not Completely Deranged:
HI! I miss you guys! I'm sorry I haven't posted anything yet, but I want to work out all the finer points of my next story before I submit it to your scrutiny. No hints, I've decided I change my mind to much to give you any. :P Anyway, I can't believe I didn't tell you guys this before, but I started a blog over the summer! I have three whole subscribers- and two of them are related to me... hee hee...
I'm not really very consistent, because I just am not that kind of person, but you can bet the next time a politician says something stupid or the film industry decides to ruin another book, I'll have something to say about it.

Psychic Prediction- I am going to LOVE your portrayal of Lily! I totally agree with her there- guzzling from a carton is easier. As for pancakes, I make mine in the toaster. :) Update soon! Must read more! (Rose says hi, hee hee) -Sarah
Author's Response: Haha "Psych" :) I'm glad you made that prediction - one of my biggest insecurities is that I'm not doing Lily and James justice. (It would be so much easier if Jo gave us a little more to work with :D) Guzzling from a carton IS easier but sadly forbidden in my house :( Pancakes from the griddle are so much better, must say. I DO plan to update soon! Give me another day and the next installment will be in the queue. (Hi Rose!! I'm your #1 Fan!!) -Joy
Yay! First review!! So, I like Lily and Kreacher's relationship. I could totally picture her crying because she couldn't hug him... and the parent reactions were good. I was kind of worried that Harry would be so mad, he'd blow up somebody else, although the thought of Blaise Zabini floating off into the sunset was fairly entertaining... Looking forward to more! -Sarah
First review! *throws confetti...which looks like a scrap of paper to the unimaginative, heh*
Harry isn't Ron, but he will have a few things to say to Blaise. :D
Blaise won't float, but he might wonder what he's getting into, hehheh.
Oh, the cleverness of me! I'm intrigued. Lily sounds like a fun character to write- in fact, I'm jealous you thought of her first. *sulks* Definitely dying to know how Dear Old Dad will take the news... :)
Author's Response: I've seen other fics that have Lily as the main character, so if you join us you'll be in good company, :). You won't have to wait long for Harry's reaction. I've finished the chapter. ;)
