I'm unhealthily obsessed with Harry Potter, though I cannot claim to have read the books an ungodly amount of times (I think I've read each one twice at the most)...I just reread parts here and there...it all adds up eventually.
I also love Lord of the Rings (hence the -lotr at the end of my penname [which, I might add, was created on the spur of the moment and was given no thought whatsoever--I much prefer Songlily, or something of the like]), Star Wars, Agatha Christie, and the classics, among other things.
I collect bottles, crystal animals, and various knick-knacks, and I'm becoming an avid bird-watcher. I love math, logic, history, art, and writing (or else I wouldn't be here, I suppose!).
Favorite characters: Dumbledore, Remus, Sirius, Fred'n'George, Ron, Moody
Favorite ships (and these were my favorites before HBP as well, thank-you-very-much): Remus/Tonks, Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, James/Lily, Remus/Lily
I'll read nearly any type of fanfiction (barring slash), but I particularly like clever, artful fics that make good use of description and diction, as well as JKR-style enjoyable sagas. Plot twists are excellent, and characterization must be spot-on. A sense of plausibility and reality--as if the action is a transcript of a real-life scene--is necessary. One-shots are awesome. Clichés are not.
Oh...and I'm a proud RAVENCLAW!
About my fics:
Closing the Door
Ginny Weasley is troubled about her actions during her first year of Hogwarts. How can she make peace with the horrors she committed?
Chapter I: On Troubled Memories--Posted
Chapter II: On Faltering Courage--In the works...
Loneliness Doesn't Become You
A minor character's struggles, as well as her hopes.
A stylistic challenge--rather a rough sketch--that takes place in St. Mungo's one special Christmas day.
More to come, perhaps?
Hope you enjoyed my little profile...good day!
Of loneliness...and hope.
Exploring one of the 'extra characters' in Harry Potter
Everyone tells him it's impossible.
But he knows--he knows--it isn't.
