Well.. I looked over what I used to have here, and found myself blushing for my younger self. So I figured it was time for an update. Yeah. Anyways..
Age? Still in school.
Gender? Same as the last time I checked (if you must know, I'm a giiiirl.)
Location on globe? An English-speaking country. You know, the big one pinned between Canada and Mexico.
Fandoms? Just the one. I'm an Harry Potter purist, all the way!
'Ships? Weeell now, that's a bigger question. Lessee..
Favorites (I'm both a slasher and a het reader, although I don't really do femmeslash-personal squick, no offense meant):
HPDM- THE classic slash 'ship of HP fandom; while a lot of these fics are trite/cliched (say, does anyone know how to get the dash-thingy over the 'e'? Really, isn't the fire v. ice thing a leetle over-done? Originality is a beautiful thing-, the good ones can be REALLY good.
HPSS- Amazing if it's done right. It can be turned into a dirty thing, but if the author does it really well, it can be awesome, perfect, lovely, gorgeous.. sigh.. I love this 'ship when its done right.
HGSS- look! A het 'ship! Although there a lot of suddenlysexy!Hermione sees reallyhot!Severus and instantlust! results fics out there, those aren't the ones that made me love the ship. I love the ones where they first notice each other through the other's intelligence, compassion, quirky sense of humor, etc.. although I also like the occasional forced bonding/marriage fic. Squee.
SF(seamus)Anyone- there aren't a lot of these out there, 'cause Seamus ain't a main character, but the ones where Seamus is a flirt/hilarious/veryIrish!/just himself (as I see him) can be absolutely hilarious and so much FUN! to read.
HPLL- I just lurve Luna. Unless she's written as a total lunatic. She's not, really, she just has the gift of seeing all those little things so many people miss, and doesn't waste time on petty vengeance (see end of OotP). Aww.
Hmm. Those are my favorites, but there's quite a few others I also really like- SBRL, RLSS, HGDM, GWNL, RWCC (I know, I know.. FDSS (these are hilarious! fleur and sev.. :P).
HGRW- I know it's canon, but.. just.. NO!! Eurgh. Purleeease, Hermione is 'the brightest witch of the age,' and Ron is obsessed with quidditch and a professional slacker. I don't dislike Ron, but I dislike him greatly with 'mione. It's not a match of equals at all, and I don't think it would work very well at all.
HPGW- Canon again, but Ginny is so irritating with Harry! She crushes majorly on him for the second book, and then just kind of fades out of existance until book six, when boom! Harry sees her kissing her boyfriend and freaks out? If there are latent feeling there on Harry's part, they're only along the lines of 'wait! Hey! She likes me, what the hell? She's supposed to be quietly pining away!' You know, male possesiveness- I don't want her, but I don't want anyone else to want her either! Hmph. Just about the only way I like her written is with Neville (I think they make about the sweetest couple on the face of the earth) or not in a romantic relationship, just a fiery sister who'll tell you flat out when you're screwing up and is there for you when you need help. 'Kay, rant over!
Squicks? Harry/Dudley, Harry/Vernon, femmeslash (unless seriously well-written), incest, twincest, non-con.
Fics I'm working on? Ignore everything I've got posted; No inspiration left for them. I've got a couple 'o bunnies hopping around, but they're pretty vague for now. If I'm inspired and have a lot written, though, I'll post it!
