Alright, It's about time for me to update this profile a little bit. I was getting bored with myself...
Name Origins: 'wicked angel' is a combination of two of my favorite things: the musical Wicked (delicious!) and, well, angels in general, but specifically Angel (the star of the TV show spin off of Buffy, also delicious). I also like that 'wicked' is associated with magic and 'angel' is associated with faith...I enjoy learning more about both.
Birthdate: March 2 (just turned 26, which rounds up to thirty, but I'm trying to remain positive)
Location: Northeastern Oklahoma. It's almost as boring as everything you've heard. Yes, we have running water. No, there aren't Native American teepees all over. Really, it's a pretty cool part of the world with lots of genuinely nice people.
Family: I am married to my high school/college sweetheart, and we live in the suburbs with 2 dogs that we spoil like children. Sickeningly sweet, huh?
My HP story: A good friend and coworker was mildly addicted to Mugglenet and showed me some of the fun stuff going on there. This is about the time that CoS was coming out on DVD. I hadn't seen or read anything yet, but after watching the first two movies, I went and bought the first two books, which I read in like two days. A week later, I'd read PoA and GoF, and was hungry for more. I started going to midnight book releases, and the premier of PoA the movie was actually the day of my wedding rehearsal (yes, most of my wedding party and I left the dinner early to go see the movie. good times).
Now, I'm the Mugglenet addict, and a fanfiction writer to boot!
HP Fanfiction: Let me just say, I love this world. I love the freedom and the fun and the community of avid readers and writers. I'm probably too old to get such a kick out of it, but I do! I've been a writer for a long time, but my problem writing shorter stories was that I would get hung up in character description (I still sometimes do). But here in this world, we know the characters, so I can spend more time giving you plot and drama...so much fun!!
I write just about anything, and am willing to give any ship a chance, but I have a bit of an obsession with Draco. Okay, I have a bit of an obsession with Tom Felton as Draco... You'll see the sadder, more vulnerable part of DM in some of my stories.
My OTP: To read: Remus/Sirius (I can't help it!!) To write: D/Hr (should be easy, but not so much)
What I hope you'll get from my work: I mostly just hope that I made you think about something. You don't have to agree with my theories or my pairings, I just want to make you pause for a second and go "hmm," or "i never would have thought of that."
Alright enough rambling!
Here is a lovely banner created by StaceyLC of the BA for my contest winner:
Wow. Exceptionally well written. Deliciously wordy and hard to walk away from. I'm glad I got to read it all in one go. I would have probably had a fit waiting for the next installment. Nice work!
Author's Response: Thanks! I guess we share a taste for words. ^^. Yes, everybody\'s happier when the story\'s done and nobody\'s kept waiting!
Also, welcome to the website! Cheers!
so, my ribs are aching from laughing, and i have hysterical tears all over my keyboard, thank you very much! i adored it, especially Snape's review. exceptionally funny, and well done within Draco's POV.
Oh, thank you so much for this review! I love you people, and I\'m glad my li\'le story gave you a laugh =]
i just stumbled across this, and i absolutely adore it! it was everything i was hoping it would be when i read the summary. times ten! i haven't really spared Tonks much literary thought before this, but you capture her beautifully. and don't get me started on Snape! i love him and hate him and mostly just want about 10 minutes alone with him after reading that. Bravo!
Author's Response: Only ten? *grins wickedly* Thanks for the nice review!
tears. that's all i got. tears. (nicely done!)
Author's Response: Aww thank you! I\'m so glad you liked it! I\'m even more glad that it stirred you emotionally. Thanks for the review!
sad and touching, really beautiful! the world, both the one we live in and the one we lose ourselves in long enough to write about, they are both quite tragic at times...you spelled this out quite well. nicely done!
Author's Response: Thank you! This story is very different from all my other work, so I feel really self-concious about whether people like it or not. I\'m glad you did enjoy it! It makes me feel very good about myself.
this is the funniest thing i think i've ever read. i'm having one of those "why didn't i think of that???" moments over here. please, please don't say it's really over. i need more!!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! This particular story is over, but there will probably be some sort of sequel. I\'d love some feedback as to what would go into it.
holy wow! that was so cold and dark and so well done. nearly cried more than once. i eagerly and earnestly await the sequel!!
Author's Response: The sequel is called Come Hell or High Water and all eleven chapters have already been posted. You ought to go read it! Thanks so much for reading.
Well, friend, you got me. I thought I had it figured out and then *wham* there you go with 'unnaturally green eyes.' It knocked the wind out of me. I know this isn't your usual style, but I liked it mucho! it kept me engaged and twisted me up at the end, all you had intended it to do. Bravo!
Author's Response: Thanks very much. This story doesn\'t get near the attention that my other ones do, so it\'s always fun to get a review here. Surprisingly, the next story I have planned is going to be pretty dark (although not quite this dark -- this one freaks ME out). I\'m glad I was able to pull one over on you. Makes you think, doesn\'t it?
love, love, loved it! even better than the first! Wolfstar is now my new favorite slash, thanks much!
Author's Response: Absolutely my pleasure! Always is to convert another; it\'s part of my plan for world-wide domination. *mwahahaha*
adorable! i love that she's in love with his messy hair. that's one of my favorite parts about the Potter men too! well done and good luck!
Author's Response: I love their hair too! Thanks for reviewing! :]
wow! really neat! i sang along and it worked really well! i like the way you repeated the last line of each verse, and how you retained the theme of the original carol: "with peace on earth, goodwill to men" and added a twinge of sadness. just lovely!!
Author's Response: I always try to sing the songs and tunes with the parodies. I\'m so glad that you enjoyed this, I really had fun writing it. Cyns
Okay, can I just say I.Love.This. I saw it in the most recent stories section and thought the title looked interesting...two hours later, I'm tapping my foot impatiently for the next chapter! Not only is the plot rather addictive, your descriptions are vivid and entirely believable. Your little snippets of thesaurus aptitude (ingress and egress--brilliant!) and your underlying humor has made this a really enjoyable read so far. I know you're in trouble with the law over your grades, and real life must come first, but (to be cliche) please update soon!!
Author's Response: Um...wow. This wasn\'t one of my better chapters, but this is quite possibly the most emphatically complimentary review I\'ve gotten. Thanks!
aw! well done! short and quite sweet. a very realistic situation played out with characters that you've given such intriguing depth to. i love your continually fun take on Wolfstar in their daily lives. good job!!
Well, I have tried....
Thanks so much for continuing to read!
very, very nice! touching, engaging, and well written. my only suggestion has to do with the spacing on your paragraphs. the last story i submitted here did the same thing and added several break lines between each paragraph incorrectly. it's a pretty easy fix though, and it would make your story seem more connected. i really did enjoy this--good luck in the challenge!
Author's Response: Thanks very much, good luck to you too!
Beautifully done, Gina! The maze was fantastic--I love how it reminded me partly of the 3rd task of the Triwizard Tournament, partly of obstacle course-filled chamber in SS, and still maintained a wonderful originality. Flamel's vision was chilling and actually made me tear up a bit when you talked about the Death Chamber. I wish you the BEST of luck in the challenge...this is my favorite entry in this category, I must say!
Author's Response: Hi Wicked Angel! Thank you so much for the amazing review!! You are too kind. *blushes* I\'m really glad you enjoyed this story. I\'m thrilled you picked up on the similarities between this maze and Harry\'s journey toward the Stone in SS/PS. I had a line in the second part where Dumbledore remarked on it as well but didn\'t think I needed to hit people over the head with it - and I was right! The vision is horrible, I certainly hope it doesn\'t happen that way! Thank you so much for reading this story. I really appreciate the wonderful review!! ~Gina :)
hehe, Blokeco! I do hope I'm not the only one to get that. Clever and hilarious as usual, Schmergo! I can't wait for more, preferably more on the subject of spandex and the Malfoy men.
Author's Response: I hope you\'re not the only one who got that, too! If you\'re interested in the Malfoy men in spandex, wait and see the OotP film! LUCIUS WEARS FULL-BODY LEATHER! Oh, and I\'m honoured to receive a review from you, you winner of the Winter Challenge, you! Your story is like fillet mignon to my story\'s mangled squid intestines. (Ack! Analogies again.)
Hmm, an intriguing beginning to what is bound to be another lovely story; you do have an enthralling way with words. The title drew me in: Black and Whites (not Black and White, or Blacks and Whites). Is there one Black in particular we're going to hear more about soon? Well, before I ramble on or speculate, let me just say 'well done, looking forward to more soon!'
Actually, this being a follow-up to Come Hell or High Water, it is most unlikely that there will be a particular Black mentioned here, but then you\'re guess is as good as mine at this point. The Black and Whites actually referes to the photographs mentioned. The line comes from the song Ellsworth by Rascal Flatts and is a particular favorite of mine
Why not speculate? Speculation is awesome
