I'm a 27 year old Human Resources guy for a big insurance company in the U.S. A great job but I can't help thinking it would be much more fun to write books for a living. Love skiing, English Literature (Dickens, C.S. Lewis, Shakespeare), fanfics, and am starting to get interested in the EPL.
I also keep a blog -- themickel.blogspot.com.
Summary: What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.
RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!
Wonderful idea. Very well done. I especially love text-messaging Bellatrix. Excited to read more.
Author's Response: Thank you! Yeah, Bella\'s cool. She\'s going to have a verrrry interesting part later in the story. Nice username, by the way!
Summary: Blaise is misunderstood by most, and Hogwarts is his only regular home. Not that being a Slytherin is easy. His mother won't tell him what he wants to know. And worse, her penchant for rich husbands- many of them- puts him in the public eye far more than he'd like. Does anyone know who his father is? And why are all these Death Eaters on his case? Can't they just leave him alone already? Blaise isn't going to ask again, so pay attention, Dark Lord!
Follow him through the major complications of his life as he gets nearer to finding out a dark secret he never could have imagined.
Thanks go to Dara for being an awesome beta! Chapter 7 now up!
Great start. It's interesting to read your first stories and see how you've developed as a writer. You have a good feel for atmosphere and the environment. I look forward to reading more.
Author's Response: Aw, thanks! I really appreciate authors who return reviews. Yeah, some of my stories haven\'t been updated in a while, huh? I know, I\'ve recently been working on a new chapter for Bruno- Hermione was started when I had less of an idea of what I was doing, though I may edit it a bit and continue, who knows? I\'ve been very busy lately, and nice reviews like yours really encourage me, so thanks. Chapter two is ready to go, and I posted it, but it disappeared from queue and I don\'t know what to do. I emailed an admin and am waiting for a reply. If I don\'t get one soon I might just resubmit. So hopefully you will be able to see it soon. Thanks so much for reviewing!
