Er... Hello there.
Urgh, looks like you need some random info on me... here goes nothing.
- I love random factoids.
- I don't have anger management issues; I need people to stop pissing me off.
- FanFiction and FictionPress are the only reason I'm still sane at the moment.
- I'm a total Potterhead. Nerdy, I know, but that's how I Rowling :3
- I'm a hopeless romantic, heavy on the hopeless.
- If you have a story I like, esp. multi-chapter ones, I will follow them to the end. No exceptions.
- I'm a bit of a Grammar Nazi, but when I write, I tend to type too fast and not catch all of my mistakes so I apologize if you find any.
- I'm quite scatterbrained at times (despite my diagnosed OCD) so I also apologize for that...
- I also have symptoms of Paranoid Schizophrenia. But we don't really care...
- I'm quite the expert on the supernatural and my scope on such things is extremely wide.
I think that's it... Bye?

I suggest you read these books. All of these wonderful classics are so worth the read (even if you struggle with some of the language).
It really bothers me that the term “mudblood” has become a sort of pet name within the Harry Potter community (especially those of us who ship Dramione).
Mudblood is a word that is used in a derogatory manner. It is used to hurt and to shame someone. A close comparison to the dozens of rude and hurtful words humanity has associated to different races of people throughout the years. Words that, if we hear them, offend us; or words that, if they’re directed at us, hurt our feelings.
And here one of those words is. In this community, that is always trying so hard to advocate that everyone is special, that being a good person is what matters, and not how they look. And yet here we will use this bad word in a joking manner.
I do understand if it is being used in a story. But it has to be used FOR A PURPOSE! I don’t think it should just be thrown in there for no purpose.
It is sickening, and I am ashamed every time I see a “Harry Potter fan” sprouting it off like it’s just another nickname for someone.
Mudblood is no less offensive than the ‘n’ word, or ape, or charlie, or f*gg*t, or any other hundreds of derogatory racial slurs. Remember that the next time you start sprouting it off like it means nothing. It may hold no weight in the everyday community, but it is still hurtful to those of us who escape from the real world by means of Harry Potter. Remember that.
And for those of you who will laugh this off, remember how Hermione felt when Draco first insulted her before Quidditch practice. Would you like to feel like that? No? Then watch your mouth. It’s a swear word in my house and I will treat it as such.
