Author has written 32 stories for Harry Potter.
A bit about me... I'm your typical high school girl from Washington state. 'Livelier' was the security word I had to put in to create an account, so it's really nothing special. My main goal in life is to make a difference, or at least feel like I've done worth while. I'd like to die a happy, old woman. Hmm...what else can I say without giving those perverted people out there reason to come looking for me? (I'm deathly afraid of cyber kidnapping, you see) Confidence is not my strong suit. "Crazy" is my middle name.
And I am now on Fictionpress under the same penname as I am here! Nothing posted yet, but I'll get there eventually.
My Pottermore user name is GhostFlame125 if anyone wants to befriend me. I am in desperate need of friends.
In case you are wondering, the picture up there is of a pair of Harry's spectacular round glasses sitting atop Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with the words "Thank You, Harry" written across the top. It's a fantastic image.
Update 9/11/12: My story "Times of Our Lives" has now been translated into Russian! You can see that here:So thank you to the lovely Sevelina for translating that for me! On another note, I promise I have not forgotten about the story I promised this summer. School has started up again and my free time is minimal to nonexistent, and in order to avoid super long periods between updates, I want to completely finish the story before I post the first chapter. It's a good one though, I swear. Hope everyone is having a great September!
Also, one of my lovely Russian readers has created this banner! Copy and paste this into the search bar to see it: http://i037.radikal.ru/1210/89/f7f31a0c0633.png
Reviews: Okay, for anyone who doesnt already know this, I'm going to make this very clear. My stories are FICTION. That means they are not true. They are made up. Sometimes there are aspects in them that are not at all realistic, especially because I write for the HP fandom, so for someone to review saying that my facts are all wrong and that gangsters didn't exist in the 1970's (which is totally false, so get your facts straight) and then proceed to call me a "dumbass" is totally wrong. It's really offensive and hurtful, and I don't appreciate it. If you don't like the story, STOP READING IT. It's not that hard. Doing what that person did is uncalled for, and if it was their story, they'd feel the same way I did. I cannot stress this point enough: REVIEWS ARE TO HELP PEOPLE. Constructive criticism is appreciated; relentless and cruel bashing is not. Sorry to all of those who are reading this and did not leave a bad review. This is just for the person (s) that have nothing better to do than to sit there and rail on someone for absolutely nothing. It makes me absolutely furious.
Reading, writing, all things Harry Potter, spending time with my crazy brilliant friends.
Books, chocolate, books books books, chocolate... It's a sad life.
Things I can't live without
Books, music, dessert of any kind, the sun...
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." -- Albus Dumbledore (Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone)
"If you ever fall off a cliff, pay close attention to the view because it's about to end." -- Mr. Covington (my math teacher)
"Remember, writers are the only adults who get to spend all day in their pajamas playing with imaginary friends." -- unknown
"Save a broomstick. Ride a Quidditch player." -- that lovely thing called Facebook
"If it scares you, it's probably a good thing to try." -- Seth Godin
"It's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." -- Marilyn Monroe
"For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it's always ourselves we find in the sea." -- E.E. Cummings
Books: The Harry Potter series (whoa, there's a shocker!), The Hunger Games (I love Peeta!), the Fallen series, The Host, My Sister's Keeper, If I Stay and (it's sequel) Where She Went, The Body Finder trilogy, The Last Song, Fixing Delilah, Without Tess...
Movies: Three guesses as to what some of my favorite movies are... The Harry Potter movies? Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! Also, Bride Wars, What Happens in Vegas, To Save a Life, Easy A, Crazy Stupid Love, The Adjustment Bureau, The Proposal...
Bands/Singers: Carolina Liar, Coldplay, Demi Lovato, Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, and many, many more! I pretty much like everything except for rap. I can tolerate it, and even enjoy some but I really don't see it's appeal in most cases. Dubstep is continually growing on me.
Foods: Clam chowder, ribs, halibut 'n chips, green bean casserole, corn fritters, anything chocolate, especially Ben and Jerry's Phish Food ice cream. Chocolate and caramel are soul mates. It's true.
Places: Hawaii is always going to be one of my favorite places in the world, along with Barnes and Noble and the Caribbean. We've recently traveled to Belize and Honduras. It was a very cool and eye-opening experience to see such a different culture from ours. I also spend a lot of free time in my back yard during the summer just laying in my hammock, reading or writing.
TV Shows: Glee, American Idol, What not to wear, Say Yes to the Dress, Diners Drive-ins and Dives, and House Hunters international. Isn't that just sad? I feel like I'm forty right now.
Interesting facts about me: I can't wear socks to bed, backpacks scare me, blood makes me a bit queasy, I dislike most oddly-flavored gum (Honestly, cherry pie-flavored gum? Blech.), I own a Gryffindor Snuggie, I'm a very picky writer, I love to laugh, I have unusually large teeth, the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday, winter is an excuse to break out my massive sweater collection, dreamy weddings are my vice, working out makes me happy, and I may well be one of the silliest people you will ever meet.
P.S. In concern with reviews: constructive criticism is welcomed and highly appreciated (see Reviews), but it you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all (or so my mom tells me), and in return, I will review almost everything I read. Thanks!
