Decided to update after 4 years. I finished University with a Law degree in 2013. I am on a gap year, planning to continue my post graduate in September 2014. I still like reading, watching movies and I'm still an electronics gadgets freak. I'm not that feminine, growing up with two brothers, they influenced me so I tend to act more like a tomboy.
Still is J.K.Rowling, I have to much respect for this women, from a single parent living in a crappy apartment to be the first Billionaire Dollar Author. Shows dreams can come true. I do know there other people one can admire, those who have become billionaires at young age, but you have to admire J.K.Rowling resolve, to never have given up, and yes I still think if millions of people are reading books, J.K.Rowling is part of that reason.
All Harry Potter books, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Princess Diaries series, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Inheritance trilogy - Eragon (The film in my opinion was absolutely crap), Eldest. I also enjoyed reading the Davinci Code. I am also a huge fan of crime mystery books, Cuckoo Calling by JKR was brilliant, there so many more but thier genre is my favourite to read. Also the Hunger Games, awesome trilogy.
Rush Hour 1-3, Titanic, All Lord of the Rings, All Harry Potter films, Oceans 11, All Star wars Film 1-6, Scream, Final Destination, Big Daddy, Liar Liar, Lethal Weapon 1-4, Hunger Games, The Dark Knight Batman Trilogy, and many more.
Evanescence, Chris Daughty, Mariah Carey, Shayne Ward, Kelly Clarkson, Enrique Iqlesias, Rihanna. These are some of the music I like. I like a couple of songs from each artist but not all, my taste is wide.
Favourite TV shows:
Grey's Anatomy, Smallville, Charmed (I can't believe its finished though - Chris was hot in Season 6), Ugly Betty (Damn, its to funny), 24, CSI - Miami, Las Vegas and New York. I also like Law and Order SVU. Monk (Great show, Monk to funny and brilliant of course). Also The Simpson's. Shows such as Angel and Buffy I enjoyed watching. I LOVED watching Friends ( Too funny, to bad they ended it. Also Will and Grace was a great show. I use to watch more like Lost or Prison Break but couldn't be bothered to watch it after the first season. Update: Revenge, Once Upon A Time, Lost Girl, The Mentalist, Criminal Minds, 2 Broke Girls, New Girl, Castle, The Following, The Blacklist, Pretty Little Liars, Person of Intrest, Arrow, Greys Anatomy, Beauty and the Beast, Hart of Dixie, Scandal, Elementary, Homeland, Glee, White Collar, Bones, Blue Blood, Avatar - The Legend of Korra, Hawaii Five-0, The Vampire Diaries, Rookie Blue, Orange is the New Black...Yes I watch a lot of TV.
If I was a Harry Potter Character:
Pet - A Owl, would probably call it Katniss
Favourite Class - Defence Against the Dark Arts
Least Favourite Class - History (Although boring, one can catch up their sleep her 'wink')
Favourite Teacher - Professor Mcgonagall (Knows her stuff, plus I like how she defended Harry)
Least Favourite Teacher - Professor Lockhart ( What a absolute Moran, to bad his brains fried, I feel sorry for him, ALMOST!)
Favourite Shop - Honeydukes (duh!, its the shop to heaven!!)
Favourite Qruidditch Position - Chaser
Favourite Magical Creature - A Phoenix (There too beautiful plus the'flame' thing is pretty cool also with the healing.
I think the first three Harry Potter were awesome, as the books were not that big, they managed a couple of good scenes. GOF was OK but the Order of Phoenix, way to much scenes were cut out, it was like jumping to one scene to another, felt it was rushed. I mean when Harry tells about the Arthur getting attacked, next thing you see is the Occumency lessons - where is Sirus/Snape Confrontation scene, also where is the scene at the end with Dumbledore/Harry where Harry destroys the office and so on, the scene at the end was not work mentioning. Also where is the Qruidditch!!
I'm a big fan of the book but I don't like some of the pairings JK did.
Pairings I like:
Draco/Hermione, Blaise/Hermione, Blaise/Luna, Ron/Pansy, Nerville/Luna, Harry/Pansy, Harry/Daphne, Harry/ Bellatrix (Yes, I know, old enough to be his mother but there a couple of good flicks I read that were good), Harry/Fem!Blaise, Harry/Any Fem! Slythering (I love hot and cold relationship, where the girl is slytherin 'Ice queen' and Harry the more flirty, sly and cunning). Harry/Fleur or Harry/Gabrielle. I also like the occasion Harry/Hermione stories. Snape/Lily, Snape/Narcissa. Scorpius/Rose, Scorpius/Lily. Young Tom/Hermione.
I don't really mind when it comes to pairing but as long as the story is good.
Parings I dislike:
Slash stories whether it be Female or Male, I can't picture the characters falling for the opposite sex. I mean come on Harry and Snape, that's disgusting, also with Draco or Remus 'shudder', sorry but JKR has always made Harry a ladies man. However, I may read some stories that involve male slash only if the plot line of story is good. Update: In the past few years, got into slash stories, I read some great Harry/Draco stories, and Hermione/Fleur, these parings I can get on board with, but Harry with Voldermort, I don't know to be honest, though there have been great 'Good Tom Riddle' stories. Although these slash couples would never ever be canon, but still, there have been a good read.
I don't really understand Harry/Ginny relationship, I mean Ginny only saw Harry as the Boy-Who-Lived and not Harry. Harry doesn't even acknowledge her until the 5th book when Ginny was in the DA and helped out in the Department of Mysteries. Then BANG! 6th Book and he starts to lust after her. I mean I do like the pairing but not a big fan of it.
Update 17/04/08 - Now I cant stand Ginny, cannot stand the character, though there are fanficition I like and Ginny is the pairing but the stories are good so I would read it. I sometimes think did she dosed Harry with Love Potion, like it was mentioned at the beginning of Book 6 where Fred or George refused to sell it to her. I feel shes like Mary Sue Character, there's hardly any mention of her, but when JK does, its like she mentions that shes popular, intelligent, always surrounded by her mates, great at sports, basically shes perfect, It like JK woke up and said 'Hey I need a girl for Harry, so lets choose Ginny as shes perfect for him (I still admire JK, don't get me wrong but sometimes feel her choice pairings are wrong).
Update: 07/01/2014 - I avoid any stories with Ginny is the cannon pairing, I don't know why, but I just can't force myseld to read Ginny/Harry stories.
Type of Harry Potter fanficition I like:
Wrong Boy-Who-Lived, Dark Harry (but not evil - basically GREY!). Harry betrayed fanfiction such as Azkaban, Weasley/Hermione/Dumbledore betray him. Time travel where Harry goes back to the past and tries to change the past for a better future. Where Harry finds out about Dumbledore manipulations and Harry finds out his powerful and rich. Also I like some stories where Snape mentors Harry or adopts him, pretty good fiction out there revolving around these.
Harry/Snape/Voldermort, Remus Veela mates stories,
Other Fandom Favourite Pairings:
Law and Order SVU: Olivia Benson/Alex Cabot
Lost Girl: Bo/Lauren (DOCCUBUS)
Once Upon A Time: Emma Swan/Regina Mills (Swan Queen)
Greys Anatomy: Arizona/Callie (CalZona)
I could go on, but watch too many shows and ship to many characters.
