Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter.

Hi. I'm Halfway Hopeful, and here are some

Story Updates:

Most of my stories are one shots or song fics, but I have a WIP titled 'After Hours' that I've been mulling over. I tweaked the latest chapter and reposted, and I've written the next chapter, too. It just needs refining. :)

Things to know about me:

I love music. I value wit, cynicism, and sarcasm, as well as kindness. I guess that's why I endeavor to embody them.

I adore most music involving Trent Reznor or Maynard James Keenan. I also enjoy listening to The Deftones, Regina Spektor, Moving Units, and Ellie Goulding.

My favorite books are "The Book Thief", "The Perks of Being a Wallflower", "The Night Circus", "Hope Was Here", "Wrecked", "Keeping the Moon", and almost anything concerning Neil Gaiman.

My favorite movies are Disney's "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", "Life is Beautiful", "Capitalism: A Love Story", "High Fidelity", "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty", and "Waking Life".

Quotes:

"I'll give you what I learned from all this," he said. "Accept what people offer. Drink their milkshakes. Take their love."

"To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die."

"But he took my shoulders, and he shook my face, and he takes, and he takes, and he takes . . ."

"There's a small town in my mind. How can I leave without hurting everyone that made me?"

"I wanted to be that breath of fresh air. When everything smelled so insincere."

"Tonight I feel . . . like . . . I feel like *more*."
