Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter, and Grey's Anatomy.
Hi Everyone! Here are some things about myself, if you want to know, which I suppose you do, as you have clicked on the link to my profile.
I know my profile is on the longish side, I know most of you aren't going to bother reading all of it. But ah well.
My name is Nirali. I am absolutely in love with Harry Potter. I am also a Nerdfighter, and clearly, I don't fight nerds. My friends have christened me the bookworm, because I read whenever I can and wherever I can. I also like to say the word like a lot. I'm a hopeless romantic, although it may not seem like that when you meet me. I also have a youtube channel of the same username. I am Indian and American.
My mother's maiden name? Shah. I have one sister. I have, uh, no nieces. No nephews. I like ice cream sandwiches. Regular Coke. Occasionally a good Hershey bar. I like to play my keyboard. And I cheat when I play cards. And I always dance, but only during a performance in public. Um... Favorite novel: The Fault in Our Stars. Favorite Band: Snow Patrol. Favorite color is purple. I don't like light purple, royal purple. This scar right here on my knee? That's why I no longer run on wet grass in regular shoes. All of my youtube channel is mine. And I live...in my house. That's it. That's all you've earned for now. The rest you're just going to have to take on faith. :)
Eyes-The Death of Severus Snape: exactly what the title says. I absolutely am in love with the depth of Sev's character, and how much we learn about him throughout the 7 books, and I just had to give closure on the Lily/James/Severus love triangle. (a oneshot)
Never Knowing: My first Grey's fic! I absolutely love the little girl of Grey's Anatomy: the silent little girl of the ferry arc. Its about how her "dose of Meredith" affected her. (a oneshot)
Reflections: This has to do with the Grey's recent season finale. It's basically a reflection in every character's view about Izzie and George dying. As a challenge to myself, I made it in second person.
The First War: Marauder Era Drabbles: Play a song, write only while its going on, and don't edit a thing after that. A challenge from me and to me. It's all about the Marauders and the first war, basically. Is serious, unlike the word drabble, and has a lot of Severus angst. Mainly Severus and Lily, with a little bit of James and Sirius in the mix. (multichapter)
Favorite Fanfics to read: Harry Potter, Glee, Grey's Anatomy, Doctor Who, Sherlock (BBC), Teen Wolf
Favorite Pairings: I basically like any pairing that's well-written, but here are a few of my favorites:
All canons plus Hermione/Draco, Ginny/Draco, Ginny/Blaise, Hermione/Fred, and many, many more...
Merder (obviously), Owen/Christina, Addison/Mark, George/Callie (I still think they were awesome together in a quirky way), Occasionally MerMark, Addex, and Slexie.
High School Musical:
Troyella, Chaylor, and Relsi (Ryelsi)
One Tree Hill:
Naley, Brucas, and Jeyton
Puckleberry, Puckurt, Klaine
Johnlock. That is all.

Quotes I love:
Hermione drew herself to her full height; her eyes were narrowed and her hair seemed to crackle with electricity.
"Just because it's taken you three years to notice, Ron, doesn't mean no one else has spotted I'm a girl!" Hermione Granger
"The fates have informed me that your examination in June will concern the Orb, and I am anxious to give you sufficient practice." Hermione snorted. "Well honestly... 'the fates have informed her'... Who sets the exam? She does!"
"But when a story demands to be written, there's no way to resist." -Stephenie Meyer
How to tell if you're a (good) writer...
1. If you constantly talk to yourself.
2. If you talk to yourself about talking to yourself (i.e. I wonder why I talk to myself so much?)
3. If, when you talk to yourself, you sometimes speak as if talking to another person (i.e. Okay, so have you ever noticed that the word deliver could mean removing someones liver?)
4. If, after uttering a profound piece of wisdom like that above, you stare at the cookie in your hand in awe and say, Wow, this is good stuff for sugar highs!
5. If you live off of sugar and caffeine.
6. If people start to notice that you tend to check your e-mail every day for a week, then suddenly disappear off the face of the planet.
7. If you know what writer's block is.
8. If your e-mails tend to be pages long and incredibly random, or full of criticism.
9. If, when replying to someone else's e-mail, you are sometimes so random that you fail to address the original message altogether.
10. If you tend to collect the Bic Stics people leave lying around, kind of like picking pennies off the ground.
11. If, no matter where you are in your room, you never have to so much as get up to reach a pen/pencil and paper.
12. If the letters are starting to wear off on the keys of your keyboard.
13. If you memorized your keyboard.
14. If people think you might have A.D.D.
15. If you think it would be cool to have A.D.D.
16. If you have a grudge against Mary-Sues...even though you wrote a story with one in the past.
17. If you know what a Mary-Sue is.
18. If you think about making lists like this, and start giggling for no apparent reason.
19. If your friends don't even bother to look funny at you anymore when you start giggling for no apparent reason.
20. If you go crazy over simple spelling/grammar errors.
21. If you don't like criticism, although you are a critic yourself.
22. If you tend to dream about your (or your favorite) stories at night.
23. If you write stories based on your dreams.
24. If you can recite the alphabet backwards.
25. If you start constantly talking in third person, past tense.
26. If you can type/ write fast. REALLY fast.
27. If you write 1000-word rough drafts for your story, then erase it and write something totally different for the final.
28. If you know basic fanfic terms (ex: beta-, canon, lemon...etc.)
29. If you know what 'etc' really means, and know the elongated written version of it...
30. And finally, the number one way to tell if you're a good writer: If you failed English 101.
... Or maybe that's just me
(I passed English, but its because my teacher was lazy and gave everyone who handed stuff in on time an A)
Rants and Rambles and other random things starting with R
Neville-A Harry Potter Rant
Neville is the REAL hero of the many adventures of Harry Potter. HE was the one who led the DA in Harry's absence. HE was the one who was the underdog, and turned into a hero. HE was the one to stand up to the professors in the Deathly Hallows. HE was the one who didn't abandon anyone, yet helped save the Wizarding World from Voldemort. HE was the one who killed Nagini, not Harry. Neville is the REAL hero of this epic. Who does Harry think he is anyways? HE thinks that just because he vanquished Voldything he should get everything. He got the girl, he got the fame, he got the money (which he had from the start anyways), he got the respect, he got everything he ever wanted. Meanwhile, Neville Longbottom doesn't get ANYTHING that he deserves. HE deserves it all. The fame, the money, the respect, the girl, but all he got was a teaching post at Hogwarts. I Sirius-Orion-Black-ly (Seriously) do not think that this is enough for the real hero. And like Harry said, half of what he did was a ton of luck anyways. I also think that half of the DA, before Neville was the leader, was only there to get the real story about the famous Harry Potter. fin.
Jacob-A Twilight Rant
I do not understand why so many people hate Jacob. He was the ONLY one there when Bella needed friendship and support! HE got her out of her zombie faze in New Moon when EDWARD LEFT HER! He even supported her when Edward came back, EVEN THOUGH Edward and Jacob are mortal enemies! If you can't call that friendship, I don't know what friendship is. And so he acted on impulse and kissed Bella. At least he finally showed his true feelings towards her! And seriously, in Grey's Anatomy, did you feel bad for Meredith or George when George had sex with Meredith in season two? I felt bad for both, but MAINLY George! It's the same exact thing here, except played down a notch! So he kissed her. It wasn't something terrible like rape! And about the imprinting, JACOB COULD NOT HELP IT! STOP BEING MAD AT HIM FOR IT! Seriously, he stopped going for Bells, which everyone was happy about, but then surprise! Jacob imprints on Renesmee! I agree that it's slightly sick, but Jake could not help it and he loves Nessie with all his heart. So don't diss him, because that is just plain wrong of you to hate Bella Swan/Cullen's best friend but love her and her precious husband (even though I love Edward). fin.
Wicked-A Wicked Rant (obviously)
I have recently realized that Gregory Maguire is technically a fanfictioner. And Wicked was his fanfic. Can you believe that a fanfic, even one as amazing as Wicked, has gotten rights, has gotten published, has become a bestseller, and has become a super-hit musical? This just proves to all of us fanfictioners that this is more than just a website. It is the root of what our stories can become. Although Gregory Maguire never posted on fanfiction (that I know of), he wrote a fanfiction that has been loved and cherished just as much, possibly even more, as the original story by Lyman Frank Baum, The Wizard of Oz. I find this amazing and inspiring. Fanfictioners should take this story and use it to feul our own imagination like we already do. Who knows? Maybe one of us will have one of our fanfictions turned into a bestselling book, a number one Broadway musical, and a beloved fanfic for everyone. fin.
Normal-A Life Rant
What is normal? Define it for me please, because I can not seem to grasp the concept of it. Everyone is different, they have different opinions, they look different, they even smell different. So why do people have a tendency to call me weird? It's true, because nobody, in fact, is completely normal, but why use the word weird as a derogatory term? If I'm weird, then you're weird. Because nobody is truly normal. Nobody is the same person, and nobody thinks the exact same thoughts as someone else, not even twins. And twins are not normal either, because it is still uncommon to have twins. But then is it normal to have one kid? People were murdered because they were considered abnormal, take the Holocaust as an example. Only people that belonged to the so-called Aryan race weren't brutally killed in concentration camps. If normalcy means taking away everyone that's not you, then there is no such thing as normal, bringing me back to my original point. fin.
I, firewordsparkler, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.
