I love HARRY POTTER.
I am a girl in double didgits.
I love Gregor the overlander books
I love the crawlers and the fliers and the nibbleres and the gnawers. The killers and the diggers, shiners, and all the rest.
Ares the flier I bond to you,
your life and my life is one we two,
In dark In flame In war In strife
I save you as I save my life
The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches.

for neither can live while the other survives .
the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies .'
Sorting Hat Songs
Song in Book 1
Oh, you may not think I’m pretty,
But don’t judge on what you see,
I’ll eat myself if you can find
A smarter hat than me.
You can keep your bowlers black,
Your top hats sleek and tall,
For I’m the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.
There’s nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can’t see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.
You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil;
Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means
To achieve their ends;
So put me on! Don’t be afraid!
And don’t get in a flap!
You’re in safe hands (though I have none)
For I’m a Thinking Cap!
Song in Book 4
A thousand years or more ago,
When I was newly sewn,
There lived four wizards of renown,
Whose names are still well known:
Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
Shrewd Slytherin, from fen.
They shared a wish, a hope, a dream,
They hatched a daring plan
to educate young sorcerers
Thus Hogwarts School Began.
Now each of these four founders,
Formed their own house, for each,
Did value different virtues
In the ones they had to teach.
By Gryffindor, the bravest were,
Where they are just and loyal
Prized far behind the rest;
For Ravenclaw, the cleverest
Would always be the best;
For Hufflepuff, hard workers were
Most worthy of admission;
And power-hungry Slytherin
Loved those of great ambition.
While still alive they did divide
Their favorites from the throng,
Yet how to pick the worthy ones
When they were dead and gone?
‘Twas Gryffindor who found the way,
He whipped me off his head
The founders put some brains in me
So I could choose instead!
Now slip me snug about your ears,
I’ve never yet been wrong,
I’ll have a look inside your brain
And see where you belong!
Song in Book 5
In times of old when I was new
And Hogwarts barely started
The Founders of our noble school
Thought never to be parted:
United by a common goal,
They had the selfsame yearning
To make the world’s best magic school
And pass along their learning.
“Together we will build and teach!”
The Four good friends decided
And never did they dream that they
Might someday be divided,
For were there such friends anywhere
As Slytherin and Gryffindor?
Unless it was the second pair
Of Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw?
So how could it have gone so wrong?
How could such friendships fail?
Why, I was there and so can tell
The whole sad, sorry tale.
Said Slytherin, “We’ll teach just those
Whose ancestry is purest.”
Said Ravenclaw, “We’ll teach those whose
Intelligence is surest.”
Said Gryffindor, “We’ll teach all those
With brave deeds to their name,”
Said Hufflepuff, “I’ll teach the lot,
And treat them just the same.”
These differences caused little strife
When first they came to light,
For each of the four founders had
A House in which they might
Take only those they wanted, so,
For instance, Slytherin
Took only pure-blood wizards
Of great cunning, just like him,
And only those of sharpest mind
Were taught by Ravenclaw
While the bravest and the boldest
Went to daring Gryffindor,
Good Hufflepuff, she took the rest,
And taught them all she knew,
Thus the Houses and their founders
Retained friendships firm and true.
So Hogwarts worked in harmony
For several happy years,
But the discord crept among us
Feeding on our faults and fears.
The Houses that, like pillars four,
Had once held up our school,
Now turned upon each other and,
Divided, sought to rule.
And for a while it seemed the school
Must meet an early end,
What with dueling and with fighting
And the clash of friend on friend
And at last there came a morning
When old Slytherin departed
And though the fighting then died out
He left us quite downhearted.
And never since the founders four
Were whittled down to three
Have the Houses been united
And they once were meant to be.
And now the Sorting Hat is here
And you all know the score:
I sort you into Houses
Because that is what I’m for,
But this year I’ll go further,
Listen closely to my song:
Though condemned I am to split you
Still I worry that it’s wrong,
Though I must fulfill my duty
And must quarter every year
Still I wonder whether sorting
May not bring the end I fear.
Oh, know the perils, read the signs,
The warning history shows,
For our Hogwarts is in danger
From external, deadly foes
And we must unite inside her
Or we’ll crumble from within
I have told you, I have warned you..
Let the sorting now begin
Weird is good, strange is bad, and odd is when you don't know which to call someone. Weird is the same as different, which is the same as unique,so weird is good. If you are weird and proud of it, copy this onto your profile!
92 percent of American teens would die if Abercombie and Fitch told them it was uncool to breathe. Copy this in your profile if you would be the 8 percent that would be laughing your head off.
If you're one of those people who get excited when you see just two reviews, paste this into your profile.
If you've been on the computer for hours on end, reading numerous fanfictions, copy this into your profile
If you don't watch Laguna Beach or the O.C. or The Hills religiously, never have, never will, and are proud of it, copy and paste this into your profile.
You know you live in 2007 when...
1. You go to a party, sit down and take MySpace pics.
2. You haven’t played solitaire with real cards in years.
3. The reason for not staying in touch with your friends is that they don't have AIM/LiveJournal/MySpace.
4. You'd rather look all over the house for the remote instead of just pushing the button on the TV.
6. Your evening activity is sitting at the computer.
7. You read this list, and keep nodding and smiling.
8. You think about how stupid you are for reading this.
9. You were too busy to notice number five.
10. You actually scrolled back up to check if there was a number five.
11. And now you're laughing at your stupidity.
12. Put this in your pro if you fell for it. You know you did.
Ninety-five percent of teenagers are concerned about being popular.

Greetings Eathrlings! My first name is actually Minerva, though Evenstar is from Lord of the Rings.
My favourite fantasies (besides Harry Potter) are: The Hobbit by John Ronald Raoul Tolkien Inheritance Trilogy (a.k.a. Eragon) by Christopher Paolini Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith Gaurdians of Time by Marianne Curley Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud Young Wizards by Diane Duane His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan Death Gate Cycle by Weis and Hickman The Adept by Kurtz and Harris Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer Children of the Red King by Jenny Nimmo 'Wolf' series by Jane Lindskold Midnight Predator by Amelia Atwater Rhodes Merry Gentry by Laurel K. Hamilton Sabriel by Garth Nix. And Gregor the overlandder
James/Lily - I favour the Marauders' era over Harry's. Who doesn't adore a lovehate relationship full of banter in a magical world at war?
Hermione/Draco - In the books I know Hermione shall end up with Ron, but I prefer fan fictions where she is with Draco because I dislike Ron; I think he is funny, but terribly shallow. Draco on the other hand...Well, an ambitious, rich boy belongs with a stubborn genius because they both have elegant taste and can put each other in their place.
Remus/Sirius - I know many of you are thinking,"Oh my gosh! Slash...EW!" Well, if homosexuality bothers you I pity you for being prejudice and closed-minded. I prefer fics about them when they are in school rather than as adults because they're more fun to read and compose. I know Remus is with Tonks in the novels, however, I am passionately in love with Remus. I found Tonks infuriatingly inquisitive and unorganised since Order of the Phoenix, so Remus is either Sirius' or HE'S MINE! Thanks, I just wanted to make that clear. lol
Regarding Reviews: I want to be a professional writer someday, so I appreciate constructive critism and I thrive on compliments! Flames, on the other hand, are useless to me. If a person flames me I make fun of them since I do not deserve to be flamed; nobody does. Ever notice that most flamers have none of their own stories? I have never, ever flamed anyone and I always review whatever I read.
Regarding My Tales: Do not judge it by how many reviews it has or, if it's a long story, by the first chapter. My fan fictions are written in many different genres and styles, so you might like some and not others. Although, if you enjoy one Remus/Sirius you shall most likely be enraptured by them all. My faves on this website in alphabetical order and reasons why I cherish them are as follows:
A Very Sirius Full Moon - For almost all of my tales I create the plot on my own. This is one of two where I took a pre-made incident from a series and did my interpretation of it. I have read a few fics pertaining to this incident and, not to sound arrogant, mine is the best because of James' reasoning for saving Snape.
Get One Thing Straight, I'm Not - So many Wolfstar stories are either too angsty or too fluffy. This one is fun, and the last chapter contains the first intimate scene I ever transcribed.
Legacy of the Marauders - It is insanely fun to write whenever I get struck by inspiration. I love it when I laugh hysterically and my hand shakes with mirth as I attempt to hold my pen steady to scribe with. Yet if I'm not inspired and I force myself to come up with jokes and randomness it is extremely tedious. In spite of the rare struggle, I deem a select few chapters of this fic the funniest things I have ever envisioned.
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. & It matters not what someone is born but what they grow to be! J. K. Rowling (Dumbledore)
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. & The biggest mistake you can make is worrying you will make one. unknown
Do not walk in front of me, I may not follow. Do not walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend. Albert Camus
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death and judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. Gandalf (Tolkien)
The greatest ignorance is to reject something you known nothing about. & Don't judge those who try and fail. Judge only those who fail to try. & Don't wait for your ship to come in. Row out to meet it. H. Jackson Brown
When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unkown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly. Patrick Overton
The bird that would soar above the level of plain tradition and prejudice must have strong wings. It is a sad spectacle to see the weaklings, bruised, exhausted, fluttering back to earth. Kate Chopin
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear. Mark Twain
We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own. Ben Sweetland
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Elanor Roosevelt
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King Jr.
To rid ourselves of shadows we must step into either total light or total darkness. Jeremy Preston Johnson
Stand up for what is right even if you're standing alone. anonymous
If you would be pungent, be brief; for it is with words as with sunbeam - the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn. Robert Southey
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. Nelson Henderson
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Norman MacEwan
Don't be afraid to take big steps. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps. David Lloyd George
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Dr.Suess
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. Leo Tolstoy
Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands. Ernest Gaines
