I'll keep this fairly short and to the point. I'm Minerva Persephone after two of my kitties who are litter-mates. I have been involved in various fandoms since I was eleven years old. I'm twenty-five, married, and a mother to a three year old little girl and a nearly one year old little girl. I also have three red tabbies; Athena, Persephone, and Minerva, and a speckled tabby named Precious. I'm a bit of a name nerd. I absolutely love this bad baby name site and it's forums but I have a different screen name there.
My favorite fandoms are Lord of the Rings (book-verse) and Harry Potter. I'll occasionally read in other movie fandoms, like King Arthur and The Mummy Series. I like my men to be manly and my ladies not to be harpy bitches. Mary Sues are terrible abominations, but original characters that are done well rock my socks. Some of my favorite characters (in semi-particular order) are Aragorn, Arwen, Elrond, Faramir, Severus Snape, Samwise Gamgee, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Albus Dumbledore, Evie Carnahan, and Ardeth Bay. I don't like slash (unless it fits into canon, ala Dumbledore) and I hate stupid self-insertions and fics that try to be funny but aren't.
