Author has written 1 story for Harry Potter.
I have no experience filling out profiles, but I give it a try.
Making up stories is a pastime since I was about three or four, I am writing my stories down since about ninth grade and I never had many to read what I wrote.
In my profession, I am writing essays, analyses and studies daily or monthly - as it comes, but that's hardly the same. Fanfiction is a breaking point for me to come out with whatever I have. One day I might work up the courage to show my independent stories too. There are some piled up over the years, mostly novels, some short stories and poems... we will see.
I like playing in the Harry Potter Universe because the characters are diverse and the story was originally told from the point of view of an unreliable narrator. I admire that because I think that adds to the taste and believability to the original seven books, which I respect and adore. I am grateful for the author letting fans play with her universe and having fun with her characters, it is not only good marketing, but I also take it as an act of sharing and I appreciate that.
Recently I've read that fanfiction was for teens and young adults... I fervently hope it was a typo in that article because I cannot brag to be either... lol, ill be forty soon, and I hope to be wonderfully happy forty-some years old for at least two decades! :D Wish me good health for that! :)
What else? Oh, English is not even my second language, it is actually the third (blush) - hopefully, this wouldn't show too much in the text I share here.
Have fun, folks!
