Author has written 4 stories for Phantom of the Opera, and Harry Potter.
Ah, I see you have stumbled upon my profile. Welcome, though there isn't much to look at. If you've come wondering about story updates, eh, well, I'm afraid I'm anything but scheduled. The updates come when they come. But I'll try not to leave my stories hanging too long.
Girl/Boy?: Since TJ is a bit misleading, I feel the need to clarify that I am a girl.
Education: I have a B.A. in French and History and am currently working on my M.A. in History (specifically 18th century French history).
Relationship: Engaged! To a wonderfully awesome person who, whenever he eventually stumbles across this, will probably go wide-eyed, haha.
Favorite Books: Harry Potter, The Catcher in the Rye, Candide, Les Miserables, The Scarlet Pimpernell, Abhoson Trilogy, Phantom of the Opera, Inkheart Series, His Dark Materials, and many more besides
Favorite Movies: A Beautiful Mind, Sweeney Todd, Harry Potter (even though they killed the books...), Bernie, Pirates of the Carribean, Corpse Bride, Most any classic Disney Movie (personal favorite: Beauty and the Beast), Stranger Than Fiction, Amadeus (Mozart, you genius!), Snow Cake, and any other movie in which Alan Rickman makes an appearance ;)
Favorite Bands/Singers/Composers: Muse, Maximo Park, Spoon, Coldplay, Rufus Wainwright, The Killers, Mika, The Fray, Death Cab for Cutie, The Darkness, Maroon 5, Regina Spektor, The Beatles, Carole King, Death Cab, Five for Fighting, Gavin Degraw, John Mayer, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Patrick Doyle, Danny Elfman, Stephen Sondheim, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, The Hoosiers, Vampire Weekend, Coeur de Pirate, Hey Rosetta!, Eric Hutchinson
Music: I started music lessons when I was 4, and began piano lessons in first grade. I also play the tenor sax and very much miss my marching band days.
Obsessed With: Snape, Music, Snape, Dr. Pepper, Snape, deep philosophical discussions on the lives of (non)fictional characters, Snape, the French Revolution, Snape, Maximilien Robespierre, Snape, Alan Rickman, and did I mention Snape?
Favorite Characters: Severus Snape (Harry Potter), Inspector Javert (Les Miserables), Holden Caulfield (The Catcher in the Rye), Jasper Hale (Twilight...only 'cause he's Texan. Not a big Twilight fan), Reverend Hale (The Crucible)
Languages: I think I have English down pretty well...though I swear I get worse at it as I get older, haha! I'm near-fluent in French, I know a decent amount of German, can get by with basic phrases in Spanish, and know random bits and pieces of Arabic. But unless I get overly ambitious, I'm sticking to writing in English.
Hobbies: First and foremost, travel. I doubt I could live without it. I've lived in Texas my entire life, and althought it's a good 6-8 hour journey in most any direction to leave the state, my family has been quite determined not to let this deter us. I have been to more than half of the states as well as Europe, Africa, and the Middle East on multiple occasions.
More Weird Stuff: Think I'm weird if you must, but I do in fact have an uncanny liking to that overly popular virtual pet site (oh, how awful it sounds calling it that) Neopets. It is true. But please understand my liking only goes so far as to have random HP discussions on my truly amazing Snape guild. Ashamed (or not!) to admit it, but share in this oddity? My username is snivellusxsupporter. Send me a message and we can disucss the awesomeness of Harry Potter. It really is most addicting, despite TNT's resemblance to something from the novel 1984.
Truth is I am rather odd. I'm not afraid to admit it.
To those of you that know me in real life, since there are a fair number of you that have come across my fanfiction name, read at your own risk. I've got a weird taste in fanfiction, I'll grant you that. Let's call it my alternate personality. We all have one whether we admit it or not, so no judging! xD
For the Greater Good: In Progress My favorite by far, though, I haven't uploaded much. While I have always enjoyed a good villain, I must know their reasoning behind their actions, and this is my attempt at discovering the true actions behind Gellert Grindelwald. Slash fan? Well, I can guarentee it will happen. What's a Grindelwald fic without a bit of Albus? However, I don't intend to make this the "romantic" type just for the heck of it. I do hope to get more of it up soon. I wanted to get a bit farther in the plot line before I continued writing for fear I would have to do a bit over again.
An Encounter With the Phantom: Complete I wrote this a long time ago for a despised English teacher, or rather student teacher. While I did enjoy writing it, and I was rather pleased with the outcome, it is not exactly an amazing sample of my writing. I was forced to write it for school, and while I try not to let it, that does tend to damper my creative skills. And yes, I did name the character Leroux on purpose.
Loyalty Undying: Deleted Well, I did it. I deleted it. Sad stuff, I know, but it really was rubbish. If, by some off chance, you were one of the few people waiting for an update -sigh- I'm sorry. It just had to go. I may at some point rewrite it, since I should hope my writing has improved since then, but no promises.
The Chosen and the Fallen: In Progress My first Draco/Harry fanfic! When this story popped in my head, I wasn't actually intending to write it down, but I decided to make a shot at it, and it's coming along pretty well, I think! It's certainly not the most profound writing I've ever done, but I've enjoyed watching it play out in my head, and sometimes a story should just be fun and not too brain-wrenching.
Merigold's Gift: In Progress I have been toying with the idea of a story about Dudley and a magical child for some time, but until recently, the story has eluded me. This fanfic is definitely still the in the beginning stages, but I think it has potential. Normally I write quite a bit of a story in my head before I post it as a fanfic, but since I had typed up a portion of it anyway, I decided to share it. This is my first post-series fic.
I try my hardest to update my stories regularly, but part of the pains of being a graduate student is all the darn thesis writing I have to do. Don't get me wrong, I love it! But it does eat into my fanfic writing time. If you're waiting on an update for one of the stories above and you feel I'm talking too long, please send me a PM and yell at me, haha.
SNAPE IS NOT EVIL!!
