Hello! Hyaroo here, but you may call me "Roo," if you so wish. (No relation to any other users here named Roo.)
What to say about me? Well, I'm a writer and artist; nowadays I'm mostly doing original work, but occasionally I get the urge to do a bit of fanfiction as well. My updates are... sporadic, to say the least, but patience is a virtue, right?
While I have (and will continue to) dabble in several fandoms, these days I tend to mostly write Harry Potter fics, maybe because it appeals to my fondness for a good mix of the silly and the serious, or maybe because it's so easy to think of ideas for that universe.
For all you romance fans out there: I don't really write romance stories. I might, on occasion, write a story that contains some romance (usually canon couplings, but I'm not opposed to writing either het, slash or femmeslash -- don't worry, I'll warn for slash and femmeslash), but I never write stories where the romance is the main point. I'm much more interested in a good adventure story, a comedy, a mystery, a character study or an exploration of non-romantic relationship. My main concern is characterization; I'm always stribing to keep as true to the characters as they are in canon as I possibly can -- or if I change them at all, at least find logical reasons for why they turned out differently.
I love to read fanfics as well as writing them, but I'm very picky -- a lot of people would even say overly nitpicky. (Which is why I generally don't review stories unless I'm specifically asked to and the author understands that I'm not going to be nice about it.)
Nothing earns my ire faster than character-bashing and/or author-bashing; I find it juvenile, mean and annoying. You don't have to like all the characters or all aspects of canon, but if you can't find it in your heart to be fair to them, then, well, then I definitely won't read your story.
