You’ve made it to my profile: I congratulate you. No, really, I do. Most are so immediately put off by my writing that they would rather runforthehills than open my pERSOnal page. So, I am indebtted to you for taking the time to STALK ME!!! But I suspect that most of you are here by accident, yes? Darn.
Anyway, you probably want to know a little about me. I’ll spare you the rant (because when I get going, I really get going) and just get on with the basics, okay?
My name, for all intents and purposes, is Sparks. That is a NICKNAME. My parents would have had to have been really sadistic to call me that. I enjoy reading and writing FanFiction, and occasionally dabble my feet in Original Fiction. I use a lot of code, both when I type and talk – which both annoys and confuses people when they don’t understand what things like *waves flag* and ZOMG!Cake mean. However, I HATE – with a capital H, A, T, and E – netspeak. Except plzthx, which doesn’t actually count. Honest. I loff snow (it’s snowing out, and we don’t get a lot of snow where I live. Too much sea water and rain) and climbing trees. I also go have work to do, though that isn’t as much fun. Pour Exemple (about the limits of my French capablilty – read it and weep, people!) My brother, Mikey, is currently staying with me whilst my parents take a second honeymoon in France somewhere (I wasn't really listening - my brain froze after hearing "We'll be dropping Mikey off on the way to the airport"). FRANKIE'S COMING HOME, PEOPLE!! *cheers*
... I should probably explain that last outburst, correct? Well, my elder brother, Frank (who is now thirty-five), was working with the TA in Iraq. His contract with the army (five years) epired six months ago, and since then he has been working with the police force. BUT HE'S COMING HOOOOOOOME!! And I'd better start cleaning: Mikey makes such a mess *ignores own bomb-site bedroom*
Erm, that’s basically it. If you have any questions about ME *preens* or anything else related to the above warble, please leave a message after the tone.
Darn, you still here?!?!?!? Fine. *sulks*
Keeping It Real, for the Triwiard Tales competition. Beta'd by the lovely Luci (lucilla_pauie, who's work you should totally read, by the way). Banner by the brilliant le viole from TDA.
Sunday Morning for the June One-Shot Challenge, feat. Sparks from KIR. Beta'd (again) but the wunderbar lucilla_pauie *plugs*. Banners by the genius oxshaboodaboo and daqu respectively, both from TDA.
Summary: The year is 2032, and the Triwizard Tournament is back. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, back, after almost forty years and many safety modifications. Please take your seats to watch the daring feats of these three brave students, from the magnificent schools of magic: Beauxbatons, Durmstrang and Hogwarts! And don't worry, ladies and gents, with the huge number of security measures we have here, what could possibly go wrong?
Oh dear. I wish you hadn't said that.
Summary: This is a companion piece for my Triwizard Tales fic, hence the use of the same OCs. Sparks searches for her "Happy Memory" in order to produce a corporeal Patronus.
This is Poppet of Hufflepuff and this is for the June One-Shot Challenge: The Perfect Patronus.
