Hello, fellow Potter fans!
So, my real nameís Elizabeth (people call me "Starburst Ben" or "Dickies"), I live in sunny South Florida, Iím a girl, and Iíve been a Potter fan since the beginning. Currently Iím being educated at a middle school, or junior high, whatever you call it, and Iím on my last year, soon to go off to High School! Great, isnít it? Uh, I think notÖI find myself to be taking great advantage of the fact Iím not loaded with so much homework now, and I donít know how Iíll manage once I actually donít have spare time on my hands to read fanfiction and do all sorts of nonsense . ;)
Nevertheless, I have and will always be a big fan of fanfiction, it is just another escape I have from this dull, ordinary life, apart from the actual Potter books, which, Iíll have you know, Iíve read so many times Iím sure Iíve memorized several chapters of each book by now (which can sadly make me quite bored of reading the books). No, I jest! I read the books as many times as I can, and I honestly adore J.K. Rowling, I never get tired of reading the series. Ah, it brings back wonderful memories of the first times I read the adventuresÖ
I shall briefly enlighten you about myself:
Favorite (I am from Hispanic descent, but I was born in the USA, so I do spell Ďfavoriteí without the Ďuí) Hp characters: Remus Lupin, Harry, Sirius Black, Dumbledore, Hagrid, Fred and George, Luna Lovegood, Tonks, Ron (His sense of humor dazzles me), Hedwig (Owls are real people too!), Lord Voldemort, Neville Longbottom, and Severus Snape. (Draco is a coward.)
Favorite Hp Book: Order of the Phoenix, Prisoner of Azkaban, Half-Blood Prince, Sorcererís Stone.
Favorite Hp Ships: Remus/Tonks, of course my OTP. Ron/Hermione (Iíve been aware of that relationship ever since the beginning, it was so obvious), Harry/Ginny, only because itís Canon, I donít actually read any fanfiction about it nor do I like it very much. HmmÖElizabeth/Remus (sadly, only in my dreams), Neville/Luna (Too bad itís not going to happen!). Ootp convinced me about Harry/Luna, but JKR went and squashed that hope.
Hp Ships I hate, detest, loathe, and despise: Remus/SiriusÖ*shakes fist* Iím dying to rant about it, but Iíll restrain myself. Harry/Hermione (DELUSIONAL!), any Slash ship, Hermione/Draco (All I have to say about that is- Huh?), Remus/Lily, Severus/Lily. (And every other horribly wrong pairing Fandom comes up with these days.)
Favorite Books: Hmm, Iíve got so many! Artemis Fowl, The Chronicles of Narnia, Sherlock Holmes, I used to read dozens of the ďNancy DrewĒ Mystery books, yes, Iíll admit I loved them. Castle in the Air, and once upon a time I read the ďUnicorns of BalinorĒ series, mhmm, oh yeah. That was back in the day I was still into that kind of stuff. Still, at the time, I loved them. UmÖletís seeÖ*runs to her bookshelf*ÖTuck Everlasting, Flowers for Algernon, and many many more. I enjoy reading ďTimeĒ magazines, books on the paranormal, books about people, books about Animal Ethics (Iím reading one now, called ďIn Defense of AnimalsĒ, and itís very interesting, if youíre willing to commit to reading about the truth. I shouldnít talk about that stuff here, Iíll start ranting about factory farms and Iíll never stop.*deep sigh* Happy thoughtsÖhappy thoughtsÖ).
Favorite Movies: Oh, too many to count! The Princess Bride, Forrest Gump, Potc 1&2, The Truman Show (An AMAZING movie, if you havenít seen it!), Whale Rider, The Village, King Arthur, Big Fish, Finding Neverland, Spiderman 1-2, Batman Begins, Amadeus, Gone with the Wind, Lotr 1-3, Bruce Almighty, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Edward Scissorhands, CryBaby, The Goonies, The Breakfast Club, The Chronicles of Narnia, National Treasure, Moulin Rouge, The X-Files movie, Titanic (But Leonardo DiCaprio pretty much ruins ďJackĒ for me), Happy Feet (that movie was cute and funny), lots more...
Favorite Hp Film: UmÖSorcererís Stone. I have a big problem with Prisoner of Azkaban. I think that statement speaks for itself. *gives Alfonso Cuaron the evil eye*
Favorite Bands: Franz Ferdinand, The Beatles, Queen, U2, Carlos Santana, Frou Frou, The Shins, Enya, The Postal Service, The Eagles, The Mama's and the Papa's, Jamie Cullum, lots of random stuff, Josh Groban, The Who, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Cream, Coldplay, Devotchka, Death Cab for Cutie, Mozart, Fleetwood Mac, Sade, The Beach Boys, Michael Jackson, Harry and the Potters (Voldemort canít stop the ROCK), I love Oldies, um, a lot of other stuff I canít remember nowÖ
Favorite Television Programs: The Office (American remake), The X-Files (Who doesnít like this show? The Truth is out there, my friends.), Lost (Iím a Lost fan through and through! Iíve always been loyal, even after the writers got stupid and killed Eko), That 70's show, The Simpsonís, Monty Python, Prime Suspect, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, anything on PBS, Malcolm in the Middle, Scrubs occasionally, ER, and thatís pretty much it.
Favorite Foods: Chinese Take-out, Rice, Chocolate, Veggie Pizza.
General Likes: my two adorable mutts, and if you donít know what a mutt is, learn. My two dogs, people. Iím just taking precautions, you know, ďmuttĒ could mean anything. Books, Music, Food, Harry Potter, Mugglecast (LISTEN TO MUGGLECAST!), Men, Film, Fanfiction, Animals, Nature, Geeky stuff, well, you get the picture.
General Dislikes: ignorance, crazy Hp fans who overanalyze everything (example: Remus/Sirius), Slash, Umbridge, Anti-Werewolf Laws, the government, Cornelius Fudge, Fruitcake (itís disgusting), and plenty more.
Iím so sorry, I lied. This is far from brief. And I still feel this isnít complete! A few more things you need to know:
Snape is not evil.
Remus will NOT die in Book 7.
Nor will Harry, Ron, or Hermione.
Sirius is alive.
Dumbledore is DEAD. (As much as I hate to admit it, he is. *weeps*)
That pretty much covers it all. In conclusion, really, Iíve been writing far too much, I love Harry Potter. ;) As of now Iím only a fanfic reader, but maybe someday Iíll sit and collect my thoughts and get over my intense bouts of writerís block and actually write something! *smile* Anyway, if you want to laugh, look at the Humor fics in my favorite stories, I suggest ďThe Dark Lordís BlogĒ. And for an amazing Remus/Tonks fic that almost brought me to tears, try ďWolfís BaneĒ. Cheers!
