Hello! ^_^ My name is AQ. Well, not according to my birth cirtificate it isn't. But, according to my best friend it is, so there we go. Anyway, I love Harry Potter with a firey passion (the series, people, not the character. Goodness. =P) and I've read all the books and watched all the movies several times. What true fan hasn't? When it comes to fanfictions, I write my own, but don't yet post yet. Why? Well, I've only just started last summer, and am still perfecting my skills. As it is my ambition to be a writer, posting my perfected poems/stories sounds like a good plan to me. =D
Things about AQ:
~I love anyone who writes stories that can make me laugh, like LadyLupin827 and FriendsOfSnape. (Seriously, go read their stories)
~I have split feelings about Snape. I think the adult Snape is evil (I read book six, three times) and never really changed, or intended to. I also think the young, Hogwarts Days Snape was very misunderstood.
~Sirius Black is my favorite character. The ending of book 5 killed me, but I'm one of the fans in denial. Sirius isn't dead! He's...hiding! Yeah!
~I often stay up very, very late reading a good book, only to have my mother come in and force me to turn off the light and sleep. -_-
~One thing that irkes me more than just about anything is when people say Sirius' middle name is Lee. No. It's Orion. Not Lee. Not now, not ever.
~I am a very random person, and I like it that way. I like any story that has totally random plots of happenings. "The Power Of Suggestion" by FriendsOfSnape, for example.
~I'm also sometimes considered a spaz. But if you really know me, you won't mind. Trust me. =)
~My favorite book is Prisoner of Azkaban. (followed by Order of the Pheonix)
~My favorite movie is Prisoner of Azkaban. Notice the trend here?
~I love the Marauders more than any other group. Sirius is my favorite, then Remus, then James, and Peter is last. (Well, he /is/ a traitor, after all.)
~In contrast to the above statement -points upward- I hate it when people portray Peter as stupid, or as only interested in food, in their fanfictions. He obviously wasn't book smart, but he deffinately wasn't stupid either.
~I cannot spell to save my life, so if I misspell something, please tell me.
