About the name- "Orchideous" is a spell used to make flowers burst out of your wand. Ollivander uses it in GOF to test Fleur's wand.
Let's see... I'm a female high school student residing in New York. Know the Harry Potter books back to front. Can get very caught up in arguing... I mean discussing... the finer plot details of the books. I really don't like parentheses for some reason and prefer to use brackets wherever possible. I really like cats.
I have a fic or two in the process of being written, but meanwhile, I've decided to post some stuff about me and the HP books.
Favorite Book: GOF followed by OotP followed by DH followed by PA followed by HBP followed by SS followed by CS.
Favorite Chapter: The Prince's Tale and The Forest Again in DH make me cry hysterically every time I read them, without fail. In a good way.
Favorite Character: Top six: Neville, Snape, Lily, Ron, Lupin, Draco.
Favorite Category: I love Marauder Era fics, fics that fill in missing moments in the seven books, and fics about the Black family.
Favorite Pairings: Snape/Lily, James/Lily [to a slightly lesser extent], Neville/Hannah, Ron/Hermione [if only because I wanted to smack them in HBP]. Oh, and Draco/Parvati. Yes, it's odd, but I love it and maybe I'll write it someday.
Uhh. More to come later, once I get them fics up.
Summary: Stella Prewett has been waiting to attend Hogwarts for as long as she can remember. Her first year surpasses her expectations by far; in addition to dull lessons and tangled castle corridors, there are ill-behaved cousins, Qudditch tryouts, and, of course, the lovable James Potter and his mischievous friends.
Meanwhile, Lord Voldemort's threat to the peaceful Wizarding world has increased. Stella, as a member of a prominent pureblood family, must choose her loyalties with care.
