Hello, I am Julian-Juliana and welcome to my profile!
A little bit about my personal life: Who the hell cares? *shrugs*
My Likes: I like many things from TV shows and books but only care to write about a few of those things. I like Supernatural, Harry Potter, and I've warmed up to Marvel-based films a little bitenough to take my imagination to a word document and post my stories on the internet.
I prefer realistic fiction, not necessarily events that could actually happen in actual life but more along the lines of how people converse and react to each other. For romance-based fics, if the story is about how a relationship comes together between two unlikely characters, it's going to take more than five thousand words to make it happen. Take Dramione for example, or even Harry and Pansy. For me, I would need a ten thousand build up for those two to even get a drink together. If the relationship has already been solidified, then that's fine but going the other way is rushed and unrealistic.
My Dislikes: I don't care for cliché fics. I find them terribly dreadful and boring and cheesy. It irks me to see the same plot done over and over again by different authors. Has originality become something of myths and legends? For instance, I like Dramione fics, but it's so hard to find a really good one. I'm trying not to be rude because I know how hard it is to write really good fanfiction, even more so when the two main characters were originally written to despise each other. Nevertheless, those fics could be better.
Things I avoid reading in Harry Potter (Dramione fics):
Hermione being called 'Mione. I'm sorry but it makes me feel sick when I read it. I don't recall her being addressed as such in the books, so I'm not entirely sure where it came from. And there isn't really anything wrong with pet names or names for short. It's just that 'Mione makes me want to gag. In truth, Hermione is a lot prettier sounding than 'Mione. (All my opinion of course. I'll just be less prone to read a fic with that nickname in it.)
Head Girl/Head boy fics, especially the Eighth Year ones where Draco managed to score that position after the stunts he pulled in Sixth Year. *Snorts* Yeah, right.
Makeover! Hermione fics. Siriusly, people?! Just because J.K. doesn't describe her as an effing super model, doesn't mean she needs to change. And I find the story kind of sad if Draco only noticed Hermione because she changed her image. I've stumbled across stories like this, and it makes Draco appear that he only loved or wanted her when she got prettier. That's kind of...sad. :( Why can't he simply love her for her? She may not be Fleur, but Hermione is attractive enough regardless of her crazy hair and the clothes she wears. I mean...I'm not sure about anyone else and I pass no judgment on those who think or feel differently, but I truly see Emma Watson as Hermione when reading Harry Potter (book or fic). She is a very lovely young woman, very pretty, and I think her features are so different from the run-of-the-mill, glamorous celebrities. Crazy hair and clothes of a librarian aren't going to effect that aesthetically pleasing face. Just saying, I think Makeover fics resulting in a romance for anyone is kind of shallow.
Veela fics (98% of the time). According to hp-lexicon, Veelas are female and Draco is not one, or so J.K. led us to believe. I've come across ones where Hermione is one but due to her Muggle-Born heritage, I find it unlikely she has such birdness dwelling inside of her.
Ron-Bashing fics (I bloody hate those!) I usually stop reading a fic when Ron-Bashing starts happening. Ron is not a bad man and would never beat Hermione, rape her, cheat on her, or leave her. He may have not been 100% kind to her growing up, but she is the best damned thing that's ever happened to him, and he knows it! I'm not a shipper of Ron/Hermione, but if I was, I would write their story just like it had been in the books. Ron being the most normal character of the main ones. He's not exceptional nor is he a complete bonehead. (I can't play chess like him, thank you very much!) He's not special like Harry and is not as brilliant as Hermione, but he's wonderful in his own way. I mean, he's Harry Effing Potter's best friend. He's loyal, and I know he has a temper but most humans do.
Accepting! Lucius and Narcissa: Though I have liked some fics where Lucius and Narcissa are decent to Hermione, I find it almost too OOC when reading how Draco's mother fawns over Hermione and loves the girl like her own daughter instantly. As for Lucius, he's going to do his best in persuading Draco into dumping his Muggle-Born girlfriend. However, I do agree that Narcissa and Lucius love Draco very much and if they saw how happy Hermione made their son, they would bury their prejudice and bite their tongue with a smile.
Marriage Law fics: The idea seems romantic but when it really comes down to it, it's the government telling you who to marry and who to have sex with. It's like some weird arranged betrothal only you get sent to Azkaban...or something for not essentially wanting to procreate with this individual who you have been assigned. It doesn't matter he called you a Mudblood for the majority of your educational life nor does it matter he still does. :/ He's pretty enough for you to look past that. (People, we are an embarrassing bunch.)
Pureblood Hermione is a sad, sad idea. Blasphemy, I tell you! Give me the girl with the Mudblood scar on her arm any day before offering that other load of smelly shite. She is not Blaise's sister nor is she Theo's. And she most certainly is not going to turn all blood prejudice about it having been called horrible names herself. Silly authors, your stories cause me ulcers. (I'm aware many could say that about mine. I know my fics suck in comparison to many.)
Mudblood Draco...I'm not even going to go there.
Rape fics, not because of the raping in general. If Hermione had ever been raped by anyone besides Draco, she would not be seeking comfort from him. Even if he offered. In fact, I'm pretty sure she'd be going to counseling or at least should be. She also wouldn't want to be having sex anytime soon. If Draco is the one who raped her, he should be sent to Azkaban because J.K. wrote Hermione as a logical minded creature and our Muggle-Born sweetheart wouldn't be mushily impressed by the blond's actions. In other words, she would not love him and would be content sending him off to prison. She wouldn't have a change of heart or see Draco's rape as a way of telling her that he loves her. Rape is not romantic. Rape is not love. It is hate and about hurting the victim in a horrible way, and I'm happy to see that some authors have captured that notion. Though their fic may contain the action, they are not sugar-coating it and making it pretty and sexy and (dare I say) funny. *Rubs forehead and groans* I wish no harm upon naïve people, or even those with tasteless personalities. I do wish naïve people would think. Really, it makes them look better, I promise.
Romeo and Juliet based plots. Those two died at the end, and they were fourteen and Juliet took a 'roofie from a priest' (See Sassy Gay Friend: Romeo and Juliet on YouTube). Draco and Hermione, or anyone for that matter, should not be taking romantic inspiration from the (in my opinion of course) worst play ever written by Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet were children who took their own lives because they could not see past their own selfishness and hormones.
Things I avoid in general: Twilight, the Fifty Shades Trilogy, and all things Miley Cyrus.
Things I like in Harry Potter Fanfiction: Original, well-written stories shipping Draco and Hermione or having a practical and believable friendship between Harry and Snape. I know there are cliché stories about Harry and Snape, but many of them are so well-written, it's easy for me to ignore it.
I also am quite fond of parodies mostly dwelling on Harry and no one else. It's a good pick-me-up at the end of a bad day. :)
My Favorite Supernatural Character: Satan in Sam Winchester’s body. However, I really do just like my precious, puppy-faced Sammy all by himself with his soul intact.
My Favorite Harry Potter Character: Luna Lovegood. (I wish I could write her perfectly)
My Favorite things: My Little One, my Sweetheart, and my parents.
My Hogwarts House: Slytherin
