Author has written 4 stories for Chronicles of Narnia, and Misc. Books.
* If you are a fan of my Narnia series, I'm starting to post it on Wattpad now. But I've been going back and revising/editing/improving, so it's not exactly the same. Also, in the future I'll be posting some original stuff on there, so it'd be awesome if y'all would read! :D
Umm, ok. So I made an account on here to write...fanfiction. Duh. Mostly Chronicles of Narnia fanfic, because that's my all-time favorite book series, well, other than Harry Potter. But HP already has so much done that I couldn't think of any good ideas that are original and haven't been done a thousand times, and I've just never really pursued it. Although I might in the future, you never know.
So, a little about me. I'm a junior in high school, I have two brothers, a poodle, three box turtles, a gecko, lucky bamboo named Lucille, and an almost dead fern named Claudio. I love to read, it's my favorite hobby. I am a Christian and a Presbyterian. I go to an arts school in the afternoon for visual arts and this year I'm taking Drawing & Painting and Ceramics. I love country, classical, and pop music, pizza, chocolate, and horses. I have been taking riding lessons for about...wow, six years now. I do hunter-jumping, and if you are a horsey-person, you'll know what that is; if not, oh well, it doesn't matter. :)
I enjoy secretly writing fanfiction and a few original stories of my own as a hobby. When I'm bored or feeling creative, or daydream something or see this really cool movie or whatever, sometimes, if it's a good idea, I turn it into a story. But none of my friends or family know because it's just kind of my thing, haha.
And that is barely scratching the surface of me, but I can always come back and add more later, when my mom isn't yelling at me to unload the dishwasher. :)

7 Bunch of others that I can't think of right now

3 NCIS (DC, not the LA one, it's dumb)
4 I don't watch much TV
Hottest Fictional Characters:
1 Jace Wayland (The Mortal Instruments)
2 Edmund (Chronicles of Narnia)
3 Kartik (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy)
4 Sydney Carton (A Tale of Two Cities)
5 Fred and George Weasley
6 Loki from the Thor movie, because I've suddenly developed a crush on Tom Hiddleston since seeing that movie :D
And the all-important Twilight question... (eye roll)
I have read them all and seen all of the movies. I find them entertaining and it's a good story, however, they really aren't worth the hype, in my opinion. The writing's not that good, the plot gets very repitive and dull, and sometimes it seems as if all the characters ever do is talk about how much they love each other and how they never want to let each other get hurt and blah blah blah.
As for the Team Edward/Team Jacob question, I am definately Team Jacob. Vampires are so over-done now, and Edward's a pansy in my opinion. Yeah, he's sensitive and loves Bella, but he's also got some stalker tendencies and is too controlling and over-protective. Jacob's better looking and can turn into a wolf. So yeah, there you go.
And for all of you Harry Potter obsessed people out there like me:
+For anyone who sat up late into the night because they had to read what happened next.
You say Twilight
I say Harry Potter

HARRY POTTER QUOTES!!
Favorite Quotes by Fred and George Weasley
"Make way for the heir of Slytherin, seriously evil wizard coming through..."
"You two just Apparated on my knees!" "Yeah, well, it's harder in the dark --"
"Yeah, Montague tried to do us during break," said George. "What do you mean, 'tried'?" said Ron quickly. "He never managed to get all the words out," said Fred, "due to the fact that we forced him head-first into that Vanishing Cabinet on the first floor." Hermione looked very shocked. "But you'll get into terrible trouble!" "Not until Montague reappears, and that could take weeks, I dunno where we sent him," said Fred coolly.
"Are you trying to weasel out of showing us any of this stuff?" said Zacharias Smith. "Here's an idea," said Ron loudly, "why don't you shut your mouth?" "Well, we've all turned up to learn from him, and now he's telling us he can't really do any of it," he said. "That's not what he said," said Fred Weasley. "Would you like us to clean out your ears for you?" inquired George, pulling a long and lethal-looking metal instrument from inside one of the Zonko's bags. "Or any part of your body, really, we're not fussy where we stick this," said Fred.
"Cheers," whispered George, wiping tears of laughter from his face. "Oh, I hope she tries Vanishing them next...they multiply by ten every time you try..."
"We tried to shut him in a pyramid, but Mum spotted us." -George
"Has Ron saved a goal yet?" asked Hermione. "Well, he can do it if he thinks no one is watching him," said Fred, rolling his eyes. "So all we have to do is ask the crowd to turn their backs and talk among themselves every time the Quaffle goes up on his end Saturday."
"You don't want to bottle your anger up like that, Harry, let it all out," said Fred, beaming. "There might be a couple people fifty miles away who didn't hear you."
"--but you get these massive pus-filled boils too," said George, "and we haven't worked out how to get rid of them yet." "I can't see any boils," said Ron, staring at the twins. "No, well, you wouldn't," said Fred, "they're not in a place we generally display to the public --" "-- but they make sitting on a broom a right pain in the --"
"Hey, look - Harry's got a Weasley sweater, too!" Fred and George were wearing blue sweaters, one with a large yellow 'F' on it, the other a 'G.' "Harry's is better than ours, though," said Fred, holding up Harry's sweater. "She obviously makes more of an effort if you're not family." "Why aren't you wearing yours, Ron?" George demanded. "Come on, get it on, they're lovely and warm." "I hate maroon," Ron moaned half-heartedly as he pulled it over his head. "You haven't got a letter on yours," George observed. "I suppose she thinks you don't forget your name. But we're not stupid - we know we're called Gred and Forge."
"Harry!" said Fred, elbowing Percy out of the way and bowing deeply. "Simply splendid to see you, old boy--" "Marvelous," said George, pushing Fred aside and seizing Harry's hand in turn. "Absolutely spiffing." Percy scowled. "That's enough, now," said Mrs. Weasley. "Mum!" said Fred as though he'd only just spotted her and seizing her hand too. "How really corking to see you--"
"We'll send you a Hogwarts toilet seat!" - George
"Hello, Harry," said George, beaming at him. "We thought we heard your dulcet tones."
"We've got it Percy's Head Boy badge. We're improving it." The badge now read, "Bighead Boy."
"You're a prefect? Oh Ronnie! That's everyone in the family!" Molly Weasley "What are Fred and I? Next door neighbours?"
"So top grade's O for 'Outstanding,'" she Hermione was saying, "and then there's A-" "No, E," George corrected her, "E for 'Exceeds Expectations.' And I've always thought Fred and I should've got E in everything, because we exceeded expectations just by turning up for the exams."
"Well, I certainly don't," said Percy sanctimoniously. "I shudder to think what the state of my in-tray would be if I was away from work for five days." "Yeah, someone might slip dragon dung in it again, eh, Perce?" said Fred. "That was a sample of fertilizer from Norway!" said Percy, going very red in the face. "It was nothing personal!" "It was," Fred whispered to Harry as they got up from the table. "We sent it."
"Time is Galleons, little brother."
"What would we want to be prefects for?" said George, looking revolted at the very idea. "It'd take all the fun out of life."
"I can't see anyone trying to bump off a Quidditch team," said George. "Wood might've done the Slytherins if he could've got away with it," said Fred fairly.
"So, all in all, not one of Ron's better birthdays?" Fred
"What are we doing here? Has something gone wrong?" "Oh no, Ron," came Fred's voice, very sarcastically. "No, this is exactly where we wanted to end up." "Yeah, we're having the time of our lives here," said George, whose voice sounded muffled, as though he was squashed against the wall.
"This isn't how we imagined handing over our present," said George grimly, putting down a large wrapped gift on Ron's bedside cabinet and sitting beside Ginny. "Yeah, when we pictured the scene, he was conscious," said Fred.
"For instance, this new idea that You-Know-Who can kill with a single glance from his eyes. That’s a basilisk, listeners. One simple test: Check whether the thing that’s glaring at you has got legs. If it has, it’s safe to look into its eyes, although if it really is You-Know-Who, that’s still likely to be the last thing you ever do." Fred
Favorite Quotes by Harry Potter
"I don't know who Maxime thinks she's kidding. If Hagrid's half-giant, she definitely is. Big bones... the only thing that's got bigger bones than her is a dinosaur."
"Pity you can't attach an extra arm to yours broom, Malfoy. Then it could catch the Snitch for you."
"I don't go looking for trouble. Trouble usually finds me."
"Are you insane? Of course I want to leave the Dursleys! Have you got a house? When can I move in?"
"Voldemort uses people his enemies are close to. He's already used you as bait once, and that was just because you're my best friend's sister. Think how much danger you'll be in if we keep this up. He'll know, he'll find out. He'll try and get to me through you."
"He was my mum and dad's best friend. He's a convicted murderer, but he's broken out of wizard prison and he's on the run. He likes to keep in touch with me, though...keep up with news...check if I'm happy..."
"Brilliant! It's Potions last thing on Friday! Snape won't have the time to poison us all!"
"Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher. There was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head!"
"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?" "Probably that you're going to be eaten by a giant marshmallow or something," said Harry, turning the pages of The Dream Oracle without interest.
"And Harry said last night," retorted Ron, "if it means we're supposed to get matey with the Slytherins, fat chance." "Well, I think it's a pity we're not trying for a bit of inter-House unity," said Hermione crossly. They had reached the foot of the marble staircase. A line of fourth-year Ravenclaws was crossing the entrance hall; they caught sight of Harry and hurried to form a tighter group, as though frightened he might attack stragglers. "Yeah, we really ought to be trying to make friends with people like that," said Harry sarcastically.
"Harry, don't go picking a row with Malfoy, don't forget, he's a prefect now, he could make life difficult for you..." "Wow, I wonder what it'd be like to have a difficult life?" said Harry sarcastically.
"How long have you been 'Big D' then?" said Harry. "Shut it," snarled Dudley, turning away again. "Cool name," said Harry, grinning, "but you'll always be Ickle Diddykins to me." "Shut your face." "You don't tell her Aunt Petunia to shut her face. What about 'popkin' and 'Dinky Diddydums,' can I use them then?"
"Listen, if you Fred and George don't take it the gold, I'm throwing it down the drain. I don't want it and I don't need it. But I could do with a few laughs. We could all do with a few laughs. I've got a feeling we're going to need them more than usual before long."
"You can't give a Dementor the old one-two!"
"Why were you lurking under our window?" "Yes -- yes, good point, Petunia! What were you doing under our windows, boy?" "Listening to the news," said Harry in a resigned voice. His aunt and uncle exchanged looks of outrage. "Listening to the news! Again?" "Well, it changes every day, you see," said Harry.
"Er -- thanks very much, Ernie," said Harry, taken aback. Ernie might be pompous on occasions like these, but Harry was in a mood to deeply appreciate a vote of confidence from somebody who was not wearing radishes in their ears.
"Proud?" said Harry. "Are you crazy? All those times I could've died, and I didn't manage it? They'll be furious..."
"Cut it out," he said firmly, rubbing the scar as the pain receded again. "First sign of madness, talking to your own head," said a sly voice from the empty picture on the wall.
"You know your mother, Malfoy? The expression on her face - like she's got dung under her nose? Is she like that all the time or just because you were with her?"
"He Dumbledore will only be gone from the school when none are loyal to him."
"It's just hard," Harry said finally, in a low voice, "to realize he won't write me again."
"I realised I can’t shut myself away or crack up. It could be me next, couldn’t it? But if it is, I’ll make sure I take as many Death Eaters with me as I can and Voldemort too, if I can manage it."
"Snape killed Dumbledore."
"Dumbledore's man through and through," said Harry. "That's right."
"Wow... look at that... he's not here now! So why not have a go? They might be able to find you a double cell in Azkaban with your loser of a husband!"
"Well, think back," said Harry. "Have you ever let it slip that you'd like to go out in public with the words 'My Sweetheart' round your neck?"
"Warrington's aim's so pathetic I'd be more worried if he was aiming for the person next to me."
"She's Ron's sister. But she's ditched Dean! She's still Ron's sister. I'm his best mate! That'll make it worse. If I talked to him first- He'd hit you. What if I don't care? He's your best mate!"
To Mundungus "What did you do, go back the night he died and strip the place?"
"I like a quiet life, you know me."
"And they'd the Death Eaters love to have me," said Harry sarcastically. "We'd be best pals if they didn't keep trying to do me in."
"SHE KILLED SIRIUS! SHE KILLED HIM -- I'LL KILL HER!"
"They don't know know we're not allowed to use magic at home. I'm going to have a lot of fun with Dudley this summer..."
"There's no need to call me sir Professor."
"Do you think -- do you think I give a -- I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU'VE GOT TO SAY!" Harry roared. "I don't want to hear anything you've got to say!"
"SO WHAT?" Harry shouted. "Don't you understand? If Snape gets hold of the stone, Voldemort's coming back! Haven't you heard what it was like when he was trying to take over? There won't be any Hogwarts to get expelled from! He'll flatten it, or turn it into a school for the Dark Arts! Losing points doesn't matter anymore, can't you see? D'you think he'll leave you and your families alone if Gryffindor wins the house cup? If I get caught before I can get to the stone, well, I'll have to go back to the Dursleys and wait for Voldemort to find me there, it's only dying a bit later than I would have, because I'm never going over to the Dark Side! I'm going through that trapdoor tonight and nothing you two say is going to stop me! Voldemort killed my parents, remember?"
"Yeah, and others might say it's your duty to check that people really are Death Eaters before you chuck them in prison," said Harry, his temper rising now. "You're doing what Barty Crouch did. You never get it right, you people, do you? Either we've got Fudge, pretending everything's lovely while people get murdered right under his nose, or we've got you, chucking the wrong people into jail and trying to pretend you've got 'the Chosen One' working for you!"
"No, it was honest," said Harry. "One of the only honest things you've said to me. You don't care whether I live or die, but you do care that I help you convince everyone you're winning the war against Voldemort."
"You can try," said Harry indifferently. "But you seem cleverer than Fudge, so I'd have thought you'd have learned from his mistakes. He tried interfering at Hogwarts. You might have noticed he's not Minister anymore, but Dumbledore's still headmaster. I'd leave Dumbledore alone, if I were you."
"I'm going to Hagrid's, I've got a good feeling about going to Hagrid's."
"This is night, Diddykins. That's what we call it when it goes all dark like this."
"Severus Snape wasn't yours," said Harry. "Snape was Dumbledores, Dumbledores from the moment you started hunting down my mother..."
"Albus Severus..you were named for the two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew."
"Snapes patronus was a doe. The same as my mothers, because he loved her for nearly all his life, from the time when they were children. You should have realised. "De asked you to spare herlife, didn't he?"
"They’re evacuating the younger kids and everyone’s meeting in the Great Hall to get organized," Harry said. "We’re fighting."
Favorite Quotes by Ronald Weasley
Prefects Who Gained Power: "A Study of Hogwarts Prefects and Their Later Careers... That sounds fascinating..."
"I want to fix that in my memory forever. Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret..."
"Hearing voices no one else can hear isn't a good sign, even in the wizarding world."
"Viktor? Hasn't he asked you to call him Vicky yet?"
"Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow, Turn this stupid, fat rat yellow."
Speaking quietly so that no one else would hear, Harry told the other two about Snape's sudden, sinister desire to be a Quidditch referee. "Don't play," said Hermione at once. "Say you're ill," said Ron. "Pretend to break your leg," Hermione suggested. "Really break your leg," said Ron.
"But why's she got to go to the library?" "Because that's what Hermione does. When in doubt, go to the library."
"We're coming for you whether the Muggles like it or not, you can't miss the World Cup, only Mum and Dad reckon it's better if we pretend to ask their permission first. If they say yes, send Pig back with your answer pronto, and we'll come and get you at five o'clock on Sunday. If they say no, send Pig back pronto and we'll come and get you at five o'clock on Sunday anyway." Letter to Harry
"Can I have a look at Uranus, too, Lavender?"
Hermione "Aren't you two ever going to read Hogwarts: A History?" "What's the point? You know it all by heart, we can just ask you."
Hermione frowned at Ron. "He's not a nutter, Ron--" "His life's ambition is to have his head cut off and stuck up on a plaque just like his mother," said Ron irritably. "Is that normal, Hermione?"
"Well, we were always going to fail that one," said Ron gloomily as they ascended the marble staircase. He had just made Harry feel rather better by telling him how he told the examiner in detail about the ugly man with a wart on his nose in the crystal ball, only to look up and realize he had been describing the examiner's reflection.
"Ron, we're supposed to show the first-years where to go!" "Oh, yeah," said Ron, who had obviously forgotten. "Hey-hey you lot! Midgets!" "Ron!" "Well, they are, they're twitchy..."
"The hats have gone," Hermione said happily. "Seems the house-elves do want freedom after all." "I wouldn't bet on it," Ron told her cuttingly. "They might not count as clothes. They didn't look anything like hats to me, more like woolly bladders."
"What's up with you, Hermione?" She was gazing out the window, but not as though she really saw it. Her eyes were unfocused and there was a frown on her face. "Just thinking..." she said, still frowning. "About Siri -- Snuffles?" said Harry. "No...not exactly..." said Hermione slowly. "More...wondering...I suppose we're doing the right thing...I think...aren't we?" Harry and Ron looked at each other. "Well, that clears that up," said Ron. "It would have been really annoying if you hadn't explained yourself properly."
"I've got two Neptunes here," said Harry after a while, frowning down on his parchment, "that can't be right, can it?" "Aaaah," said Ron, imitating Professor Trelawney's mysical whisper, "when two Neptunes appear in the sky, it is a sure sign that a midget in glasses is being born, Harry..."
"...from now on, I don't care if my tea leaves spell 'die, Ron, die,' I'm chucking them in the bin where they belong."
"What's that?" said Ron, pointing at a large dish of some sort of shellfish stew that stood beside a large steak-and-kidney pudding. "Bouillabaisse," said Hermione. "Bless you," said Ron.
"And no wonder we couldn't find Flamel in that Study of Recent Developments in Wizardry," said Ron. "He's not exactly recent if he's six-hundred and sixty-five, is he?"
"I'll make Goyle do lines, he hates writing," said Ron happily. He lowered his voice to Goyle's low grunt, mimed writing in midair. "I...must...not...look...like...a...baboon's...backside."
"It's obvious," said Ron. "You can pretend to be waiting Professor Flitwick, you know." He put on a high voice, "'Oh, Professor Flitwick, I'm so worried, I think I got question fourteen b wrong...'"
"Stop moving!" Hermonie ordered them. "I know what this is-it's the Devil's Snare!" "Oh, I'm so glad we know what it's called, that's a great help," snarled Ron, leaning back, trying to stop the plant from curling around his neck.
"Did I tell you I've invented a broomstick that'll reach Jupiter?"
"There you go, Harry," Ron shouted over the noise. "You weren't being thick after all - you were showing moral fiber!"
"You need your inner eye tested if you ask me."
"Lockhart'll sign anything if it stands still long enough."
"Yeah, I've seen those things they think are gnomes," said Ron, bent double with his head in a peony bush, "like fat little Santa Clauses with fishing rods."
"I tell you, that dragon is the most horrible creature I've ever met, but the way Hagrid goes about it you'd think it was a fluffy little bunny rabbit. When it bit me, he told me off for frightening it. And when I left he was singing it a lullaby."
"Tomorrow," said Ron in a muffled voice, "I'd rather you set the alarm clock."
"Could've been anything," said Ron. "Maybe he Tom Riddle got thirty O.W.L.s or saved a teacher from the giant squid. Maybe he murdered Myrtle; that would've done everyone a favor..."
"It would've been so easy to push Malfoy off a glacier and make it look like an accident.."
"Percy's started work - the Department of Magical Cooperation. Don't mention anything about abroad while you're here unless you want the pants bored off of you."
"Percy wouldn't recognize a joke if it danced naked in front of him wearing Dobby's tea cozy."
"You want to be careful with those," Ron warned Harry. "When they say every flavor, they mean every flavor!"
"'Slug Club,'" repeated Ron with a sneer worthy of Malfoy. "It's pathetic. Well, I hope you enjoy your party. Why don't you try hooking up with McLaggen, then Slughorn can make you King and Queen Slug--"
"We'll be there, Harry," said Ron. "What?" "At your aunt and uncle's house. And then we'll go with you, wherever you're going."
"Er--is this the new stand on elf rights?" said Ron. "You're going to make yourself puke instead?"
"Yeah, Dumbledore's off his rocker all right."
"I don't need help," Ron whispered. "It's obvious what this means. There's going to be loads of fog tonight."
"When we come face-to-face with one down a dark alley, we're going to be having a shufti to see if it's solid, aren't we, we're not going to be asking, 'Excuse me, are you the imprint of a departed soul?"
"Fred and George tried to get me to make one Unbreakable Vow when I was about five. I nearly did, too, I was holding hands with Fred and everything when Dad founds us. He went mental," sid Ron, with a reminiscent gleam in his eyes. "Only time I've ever seen Dad as angry as Mum. Fred reckons his left buttock has never been the same since."
"Yeah, well, Percy wouldn't want to work for anyone with a sense of humor, would he?"
"I love you, Hermione."
"We're with you whatever happens."
"IF WE DIE FOR THEM, I'LL KILL YOU HARRY!"
"You should write a book translating the mad things girls do so boys can understand them."
"And what in the name of Merlin’s most baggy Y Fronts was that about?"
"I’m starving! All I’ve had since I bled half to death is a couple of toadstools!"
"That makes me sound a lot cooler than I was."
"If you're not in Gryffindor we'll disinherit you, but no pressure."
"What's up? If it's massive spiders again I want to eat breakfast before-"
"Bless him Kreacher, and when you think I used to fantasize about cutting off his head and sticking it to the wall!"
"That treacherous old bleeder! Hermione, you're a genius, a total genius, I can't believe we got out of that!"
"You sound like Hagrid. It's a dragon, Hermione, it can take care of itself. It's us we need to worry about."

"Blimey, Neville, there's a time for getting a smart mouth."
Favorite Quotes by Hermione Granger
"Oh Harry, don't you see? If she could have done one thing to make absolutely sure that every single person in this school will read your interview, it was banning it!"
Hermione drew herself to her full height; her eyes were narrowed and her hair seemed to crackle with electricity. "No," she said, her voice quivering with anger, "but I will write to your mother."
They were so busy that Hermione had stopped knitting elf hats and was fretting that she was down to her last three. "All those poor elves I haven't set free yet, having to stay over during Christmas because there aren't enough hats!"
"Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have."
"Just because it's taken you three years to notice, Ron, doesn't mean no one else has spotted I'm a girl!"
"The fates have informed me that your examination in June will concern the Orb, and I am anxious to give you sufficient practice. Hermione snorted. "Well honestly... 'the fates have informed her'... Who sets the exam? She does!"
"Twitchy little ferret, aren't you, Malfoy?"
"Malfoy's got detention! I could sing."
"Are you sure that's a real spell? Well, it's not very good is it? I've tried a few simple spells myself and they've all worked for me. Nobody in my family's magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, it's the best school of witchcraft there is I've heard - I've learned all the course books by heart of course. I just hope it will be enough - I'm Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?"
"I hope you're pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed - or worse, expelled. Now if you don't mind, I'm going to bed."
"It matters because being able to talk to snakes was what Salazar Slytherin was famous for. That's why the symbol for Slytherin house is a serpent."
"Ron," said Hermione in a dignified voice, "you are the most insensitive wart I have ever had the misfortune to meet."
"At least no one on the Gryffindor team had to buy their way in. They got in on pure talent."
"Please, Professor McGonagall--they were looking for me." "Miss Granger!" Hermione had managed to get to her feet at last. "I went looking for the troll because I--I thought I could deal with it on my own--you know, because I've read all about them."
"Harry--you're a great wizard, you know." "I'm not as good as you," said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let him go. "Me!" said Hermione. "Books! And cleverness! There are more important things--friendship and bravery and--oh Harry--be careful!"
"There you are! Where have you been? The most ridiculous rumors--someone said you'd been expelled for crashing a flying car--" "Well, we haven't been expelled," Harry assured her. "You're not telling me you did fly here?" said Hermione, sounding almost as severe as Professor McGonagall. "Skip the lecture," said Ron impatiently, "and tell us the new password." "It's 'wattlebird,'" said Hermione impatiently, "but that's not the point--"
"Harry, you'd better beat him in the Quidditch final!" Hermione said shrilly. "You'd just better had, because I can't stand it if Slytherin wins!"
"Grawp's about sixteen feet tall, enjoys ripping up twenty-foot pine trees, and knows me," she snorted, "as Hermy."
"You said to us once before," said Hermione quietly, "that there was time to turn back if we wanted to. We've had time, haven't we?"
"I will not calm down!"
"Imagine losing fingernails, Harry! That really puts our sufferings into perspective, doesn't it?"
Favorite Quotes by Sirius Black
"If you made a better rat than a human, that's not much to boast about."
"You should have died! Died rather than betray your friends, as we would have done for you!"
"This is how it is - this is why you're not in the Order - you don't understand - there are things worth dying for!"
"If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
"What was there to be gained by fighting the most evil wizard who has ever existed? Only innocent lives, Peter."
"There's enough filth on my robes without you touching them."
"You are truly your father's son, Harry..."
"I'll look for him later, I expect I'll find him upstairs crying his eyes out over my mother's old bloomers or something...Of course, he might have crawled up into the airing cupboard and died...But I mustn't get my hopes up..."
"Reading between the lines, I’d say she thinks you’re a bit conceited, mate."
"Kreacher is cleaning," the elf repeated. "Kreacher lives to serve the noble house of Black--" "--and it's getting blacker every day, it's filthy," said Sirius.
"Keep muttering and I will be a murderer!"
"Believe me. I never betrayed James and Lily. I would have died before I betrayed them."
"Of course, any time the family produced someone halfway decent they were disowned."
"Tell them whatever you like. But make it quick, Remus. I want to commit the murder I was imprisoned for..."
"D'you think your father and I would've lain down and taken orders from an old hag like Umbridge?"
He was laughing at her. "Come on, you can do better than that!" he yelled, his voice echoing around the cavernous room. The second jet of light hit him squarely on the chest.
"Dying? Not at all," said Sirius. "Quicker and easier than falling asleep."
Favorite Quotes by Luna Lovegood
"Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure."
"I've been able to see them ever since my first year here. They've always pulled the carriages. Don't worry. You're just as sane as I am."
"There are plenty of eyewitness accounts, just because you're so narrow-minded you need to have everything shoved under your nose before you--"
"It's good, isn't it? I wanted to have it chewing up a serpent to represent Slytherin, you know, but there wasn't time. Anyway...good luck, Ronald!"
"Dad's reprinting! He can't believe it, he says people seem even more interested in this than the Crumple-Horned Snorkacks!"
"Mistletoe," said Luna dreamily, pointing at a large clump of white berries placed almost over Harry's head. He jumped out from under it. "Good thinking," said Luna seriously. "It's often infested with nargles."
"Oh, come on. You heard them, just behind the veil, didn’t you? They were just lurking out of sight, that’s all. You heard them."
"I enjoyed the meetings, too. It was like having friends."
"Nobody's ever asked me to a party before, as a friend! Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I do mine, too?"
"The Aurors are part of the Rotfang Conspiracy, I thought everyone knew that. They're working from within to bring down the Ministry of Magic using a combination of Dark magic and gum disease."
"A Wrackspurt - they're invisible, they float in through your ears and make your brain go fuzzy," she said. "I thought I felt one zooming around in here."
"Yes," said Luna simply, "My mother. She was a quite an extraordinary witch, you know, but she did like to experiment and one of her spells went rather badly wrong one day. I was nine."
"I'll distract them all," she said. "Use your Cloak." And before he Harry could say a word, she had cried, "Oooh, look, a Blibbering Humdinger!" and pointed out the window.
"Daddy, look—one of the gnomes actually bit me!"
"I've never stunned anyone except in our D.A. lessons," said Luna, sounding mildly interested. "That was noisier than I thought it would be."

"And do I look like the kind of man that can be intimidated?" barked Uncle Vernon. "Well..." said Moody, pushing back his bowler hat to reveal his sinisterly revolving eye.

"S'up Figgy?" - Mundungus Fletcher
"The first word out of those poor petrified people's mouths will be, 'It was Hagrid.' Frankly, I'm astounded Professor McGonagall thinks all these security measures are necessary." - Gilderoy Lockhart
"Using defensive spells?" Professor Umbridge repeated with a little laugh. "Why, I can't imagine any situation arising in my classroom that would require you to use a defensive spell, Miss Granger. You surely aren't expecting to be attacked during class? "I do not wish to criticize the way things have been run in this school," she said, an unconvincing smile stretching her wide mouth, "but you have been exposed to some very irresponsible wizards in this class, very irresponsible indeed - not to mention," she gave a nasty little laugh, "extremely dangerous half-breeds." - Dolores Umbridge

"Bad news, Harry. I've just been to see Professor McGonagall about the Firebolt. She – er got a bit shirty with me. Told me I'd got my priorities wrong.

"Yes, yes, I know what you're thinking! 'He's an internationally famous wizard already!' But when I was twelve, I was just as much of a nobody as you are now.

"Sirius?" said Mundungus, who did not appear to have paid any attention to the conversation, but had been closely examining an empty goblet. "This solid silver, mate?"

"That'd come off, though," muttered Mundungus, polishing it with his cuff. - Mundungus Fletcher

And she thought you might take a bit more notice if I was a bit more - myself." - Ginny Weasley
