I'm a university student who loves Harry Potter and writing a bit too much for her own good. I just keep ignoring the pressures of my studies to return to MNFF! Chocolate's got nothing on constructive criticism--it's my favorite guilty pleasure.
I started out in fanfiction writing a lot of Draco/Ginny, but I haven't stuck with a particular ship or genre since then. My favorite thing to do is to pick a new character that I've never written before and create a story for them. I've learned that I have a much greater appreciation for characters after I've written a one-shot in which they star. I also have a particular weakness for Contest Submissions--there's nothing like an interesting prompt to get those crazy plot bunnies running through my head.
Hope to see all of you in the review pages for my stories or around the Boards! :)
