Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.
Well, since i've now submitted a story i guess I need to build a profile.
I'm going to college and I'm male. thats all you will know from me.
If anyone can guess where my name (delphinous) came from, I'll be very impressed.
The basic thought that led to Standing Tall was, actually, from the quote "people hate what they fear".
I don't know where it cam from, but it made me wonder:
Most people have the Dursleys become more angry or violent when Harry gets to be more powerful. So i thought, since their fear of him also increased, maybe they were more afraid of him than the consequences of abandoning him.
Thus Standing Tall is born.
For anyone wondering about the name, is comes from the fact that Harry will be changed by his time alone and will be more willing to stand up, in defense and defiance, whenever he feels called to.
I also think I'll also suprise people when they see how Harry and Luna meet.
see you later. :)
I found this quote today, and i think that it is very sweet and true.
"Seduce my mind and you can have my body, find my soul and I'll be yours forever"
Hey, all, it turns out that i have no dicipline for writing, and as such i will attempt to update my stories, but i get easily distracted by life and so i might not update for a couple of months. sorry, but you'll have to survive.

Petition for "No Yaoi/Yuri" filters
The funny thing about fanfiction, is that fanfiction begets more fanfiction.
The quality of those tales sparks inspiration in the hearts and minds of those who read, and glimpse not just what the author wanted to say, but a few answers welling up from the hidden recesses of their own souls.
Bad fanfiction is every bit the killer of inspiration and spark as good fanfiction is the fertilizer of more tales.
It is with a heavy heart that I admit that my joy in fanfiction has been stifled, stunted, and outright strangled by the vast majority of the fiction being propagated.
Personally, there are things I just don't want to see.
The fact that Naruto-Sasuke is the single most popular pairing of ANY sort in Naruto fanfiction is one of them.
The real trouble, of course, is the filters. The filters can search for what you want- but they can't exclude what you DON'T.
I intensely wish there was a means by which to eliminate yaoi from your search results, because frankly, of all pairings I can encounter I most especially don't want to imagine two boys- especially prepubescent boys, which is traversing the distance from merely unpleasant to down right perverse and reprehensible, in my mind- becoming sexually involved with one another. And I say this because it just DOESN'T appeal to me. And so when I start leafing through the fics on the front page, it becomes increasingly apparent that ff dot net is not losing, but has completely LOST the war against lemon fics, considering how many of them openly proclaim Yaoi and Lemon in the descriptors.
So work with us here- please, for the love of writing, PLEASE add a filter that excludes Yaoi. For the love of GOD.
Or else, all the good writers who don't write yaoi are going to leave- and there are a lot more GOOD writers who WON'T write yaoi, then there are who DO.
If you agree with this rant, copy and paste this into your profile- and email a complaint to ff dot net regarding the lack of so necessary a tool.

OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
His 3 stepbrothers survive him; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
