My name is Elisabeth. I am not a particuarly interesting person, I guess. If anyone is bothering to read this then here are a few facts about me:
-Red hair dye is my best friend
-I speak french... though not very fluently. I've been trying to learn it for the past three years but my grammar still sucks. i try and read french fanfics for practice and try to review them in french
-My favorite book is either Eragon by Christopher Paolini (I've tried to read fanfiction about it, but I've only actually found a few good stories) or The Warded Man by Peter Brett (which might be made into a movie!)
-I don't like television muh but if I must watch it, I prefer to watch CSI or Primeval
-I am sixteen but most people think I am fifty because of how dull I am
-I hate racism, sexism, homophobia and everything along those lines.
-I usually only like Slash (my favorite pairing being Harry/Draco) , het pairings are typically so shallow but I do really like Katniss/Peeta from the Hunger Games, I find that they just fit so well together it surprises me.
-I love cliches, but I could never write one
-My favorite house for Harry to be in is gryffindor. I don't mind slytherin, it would be my second choice. I'm disapointented when he's put in ravenclaw and no one ever writes about Harry being in Hufflepuff (thanfully).
-I hangout on Live Journal a lot if you ever want to contact me through that
Things you will never find in my writing:
Mpreg- its just kinda gross... it shouldn't work. If you want a guy to be feminine enough to have a kid, then just write het.
Any character being a mixture of a bunch of different species.Its really unrealistic when people have Harry being a elf/vampire/veela.
Thanks to my awesome beta who has greatly improved my story and my writing in a short amount of time: The.Random.Placeholder. She is writing an awesome Harry Potter/Inheritance cycle crossover that I personally loved (and I don’t usually like crossovers). It’s called New world, New hopes. It is really popular and anyone who likes Harry Potter and The Inheritance Cycle need to read it.
Here’s the summary for it: Betrayed by the Wizarding World, Harry is sentenced for execution: Except, the Veil isn't an execution tool. Thrust into Alagaesia, how will Harry cope with new pressures for being a Rider? Post-DH.
I have one story for fanfiction-
Garden of Eden- Summary: !AU HP/TR Slash Vampire!Tom! The wizarding world is at war against vampires and students are vanishing. Harry has a perfect life, except the man who appears in his dreams, claiming Harry as his, and Harry is starting to question whether this man is even human. Harry's life is relatively easy though, the man isn't the person he hates the most, that title belongs to his DADA teacher, Tom Riddle. SLASH, No Boy Who Lived, Violence.
My favorite Harry Potter pairings are:
Harry/Draco/ Snape- Thats my favorite pairing right now but I only know of one author that actually writes stories using it. I'm hoping that it will get popular soon though.
My least Favorite Slash pairings are:
Sirius/Remus- Everyone uses it, it is sterotypical and I don't see any chemistry between them... I don't even know how they can be friends.
Draco/Ron- Theres a reason why no one uses this. It is like trying to make a sandwitch out of chilli powder and banadas.
Dumbledore/anyone- he's eighty for anyone who forgets this. Even if you write about him being Harry's age, everyone will still imagine him as the same white bearded old guy we all know and love/hate.
Draco/Severus- They're both too alike, they only work if Harry is envolved
My favourite quotes are:

"Well, I had one that I was playing Quidditch the other night," said Ron, screwing up his face in an effort to remember. "What do you think that means?"

"Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language."
