Author has written 1 story for Twilight.
As most people do, I sometimes read late into the night. If this happens then I am obviously quite tired and probably not thinking completely straight. This can lead to some pretty weird reviews... If you get one of these don't freak out and assume the foetal possition; I'm not really insane!

I'd like to see a stalker who could track me down with just that! (...Well actually no, I wouldn't, but I doubt there's many stalkers who would be able to find me with so little information (and I said stalkers - not hackers! - who I believe have a better skill set (no offence) and I doubt would even need this information))
INFORMATION ABOUT ENGLAND
We use the Sterling currency: pounds and pence. NOT EUROS.
As for housing, we have even numbers on one side of the street, odd on the other. 12 Grimmauld Place was not missing (10, 11, 12, 13, 14), it was not meant to be there in the first place (9, 11, 12, 13, 15).
The School System Harry Potter)
We drive on the left hand side of the road.
Tea is preferential to coffee.
Although we like to be patriotic, particularly about the Royal Family, we take the mick out of ourselves a lot. (Light hearted humour. "Taking the mick" means teasing.)
We can cross the road wherever is safe. i.e. Zebra crossings etc are not necessary if there are no cars. (I, until recently, thought Jay Walking was a dance move)
We take pride in queuing. It is automatic for us. if more then 3 people need to get onto a bus we will line up without even thinking about it.
Tipping is not necessary. Some will often tip after a nice meal, but usually not very much. Waiters don't expect much because in Britain, we get paid for our jobs and don’t usually expect anything else.
Americans who come to the UK often complain that everybody seems to be an alcoholic. Whilst we do generally abuse alcohol as a nation, at least we have tolerance. We drink pints of strong lager, not cans of light beer, and whisky takes precedence over bourbon. We look like drunkards to Americans, but to us, the Americans just can’t handle their drink.
We aren’t afraid of swearing, even Chaucer and Shakespeare swore. There is pretty much only one swear word left that we defiantly will find offensive; it has 4 letters and begins with C. (Of course some people are easier to offend than others, it depends how they were raised.)
We use Metric.
We don't use guns, and for good reason. In America there are only five times as many people, yet the gun-related murder rate alone is over 15 times higher than the UK total.
We have a system of “socialised” healthcare, the NHS, the National Health Service. It could be better but it's still very good.
We avoid confrontation. It doesn't matter how loud those people are talking, we will silently simmer our anger or leave the area; very few people will cause confrontation in fear of an argument or being offensive.
We say Thank You and Sorry. A lot. During one credit card transaction we can say these words at least a dozen times; thank you (for being free so I can pay), thank you (for taking my items), thanks (for bagging them), sorry (because I need to get my card out), sorry (it's still loading), sorry (it's still loading), (yes - Twice! We will also smile awkwardly now), thank you (for your patience). ETC IT GOES ON, I HAVE MORE AND THIS IS ONLY ONE CONVRESATION, IF THAT.
Can't think of anything else right now but if anyone has any questions feel free to ask :3

That awkward moment when Voldemort hugs you...
What I want to see is a LotR X Maximum Ride where Mordor is basically Itex and the flock escape and live rough for a while until someone finds them (then obviously they join in to destroy Mordor). It might exist; if it does then I haven't seen it and please please please send me a link.
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
And if you can't join 'em blackmail 'em.
And if you can't blackmail 'em, kill 'em!
And if you can't kill 'em, you're screwed.
Thanks for visiting :)
