Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter, Ouran High School Host Club, and Attack on Titan/進撃の巨人.
I have to come clean here. I actually love the shows 1000 Ways to Die and Deadliest Warrior. I guess I just love gore and those shows appeal to the inner boy in me. I donno why I'm so twisted, but I just had to get that off my chest. Okay. I feel like we know each other better now. Don't you?
I have a Twitter to and I occasionally post funny things. @samasbananas if you were wondering...
I also have a Tumblr, as do most people on this website I assume... samasbananas.tumblr.com
I love YouTube! My top favourite YouTubers are the vlogbrothers, ItsWayPastMyBesTime, EvanEdinger, Troye Sivan and BriBryontour. I've also got a friend who make funny YouTube videos. His Youube name is hellojackdavies and he is perfect. Would appreciate it if you check it out! I'll give you all inedible, virtual, invisible cookies! :D
Twilight: Ugh, I know. I was absolutely DISGUSTED by Twilight. Then I was bored one day and started reading fanfiction. Tadaa! That's what brought my attention to Twilight fanfiction, not a very interesting story. I like Edward, Emmett, Jasper and most of the wolves ESPECIALLY LEAH! I guess you could say I'm a regular, hormone-crazed teenage girl. Which- as history had proven to my family, friends and myself- I am. I absolutely hate Renesmee, Emily and Bella. Renesmee ruined ALL chance of there ever being Blackwater- which I ADORE!- and I can never forgive her for that. Nope. Nu-uh. I hate Emily because she helped destory Leah, who is my all time favourite Twilight character. I know what you're thinking "How can you hate Emily? She only followed the imprint!" Well, I think she's a twat. As Jacob had stated, the wolf is anything that the Imprint decides they want- a friend, a protector or a lover. Emily, knowing that it would hurt Leah, obviously chose lover. That's kind of a bitch move. I hate Bella most of all because she's a weak heroine who never stands up for herself and is USELESS. The only purpose for Bella, besides stirring up shit, is to get Edward to be less of a prude because he's the 400 year old virgin. I strongly dislike Sam. As far as we know, Sam never tried to resist the effect of the imprint and, while accidentally, rubbed it in Leah's face every time they turned into wolves.
Glee: I absolutely LOVE Glee. I like every character on the show and most couples on the show right now. My all time favourite chracter of the series is Rachel Berry! She's just so ambitious, clever and talented (definetly Slytherin traits). I love all pairings with Rachel except for Kurtchel, Shueberry and Finchel. I don't like Kurtchel because Kurt's too gay to be straight. Shueberry is just WRONG! And I despise Finchel with the hatred of 1000 burning suns. As I said before, Rachel is my favourite character and Finn is just too stupid for her. Some may see him as endearing and sweet (including my Mother) - I find him simply idiotic and a complete moron. If you have problems with it, GTFO now. Haha, but seriously. I like Sugar the least because she is just a plain useless character. She can't sing, dance or play an instrument and is just unneeded because we have Rory and Joe to fill her space in the choir. I wish she'd just go away. I dislike the fact that Rory Flannagan (Damian McGuinty) only sung 3 songs, barely had a character and was dating Sugar. Damian McGuinty is too talented to not be given a song every couple episodes. Rory's been a wallflower since the first episode he appeared in. We know next to NOTHING about him. I also dislike how Artie never gets the girl. It's upsetting. I have an Artie Rant posted right now and I may write a Rory rant as well. So, be prepared for that.
Harry Potter: This is my biggest and most favourite fandom that I read about. It's just so vast and exciting that there are endless possibilities with it. You can write a Founders-era story, Marauders-era or Next Generation story. Like I said, a whole pool of potential. I also have a feeling that JK might pull a George Lucas and write those later in her career- after some Harry Potter hype has died down. Us fangirls can only hope so! I will never read Hinny or Romione fanfiction. Now, let me explain myself. I will never read it because Harry and Ginny as well as Ron and Hermione's love stories are too beautiful for anyone besides out Queen to write better. No one can write them better than the woman who created them. I have a slight feeling this one's going to be more than any of the other fandom explanations thingies...
SNILY vs JILY
I have wrestled with these two ships in my mind a lot. I adore Severus Snape and don't understand how people can hate him. I know, there are people who do. If you read this and you don't like Snape, please explain to me why because it does not make sense in my mind as of this moment. Oh right, back to the ship war! I prefer Snily because I think they work better together and I have a soft spot for friendships that turn into romances. I understand why JK put Lily with James- to establish a more intricate plot and to pull at your heartstrings- and I actually enjoy them. But speaking purely ships, no plotline effects and such, I prefer Snily because they're cuter in my mind. Feel free to disagree, but I am not easily swayed.
ROMIONE vs DRAMIONE
I wrestled a lot with this one too. I love Ron and Hermione together because, as stated above, I have a soft spot for this kind of relationship developement. I also love forbidden romances and there is a connection with the 'Ron, Hermione, Draco' love triangle and 'James, Lily, Severus' love triangle. I prefer.. um..Why is this so hard? Sam, remember, they're fictional characters... I think I prefer Dramione. Sorry people who like Romione better. Still, you're entitled to your opinion as I am to mine. I know how some fans can be protective over their OTPs and favourite ships. I am actually one of them.
Now, just a list of my favourite Harry Potter ships. This will include Romione, Dramione, Snily and Jily alike. No particular order because I can't bare to choose the best.
DRUNA- Draco and Luna. They would make beatiful blonde babies...
NUNA- Neville and Luna. They were both the ones who felt lonely without the DA. They're both underdogs and I love that about them. They're my OTP because they're both so quirky and original. I feel like Luna would understand Neville's parents the most because she can relate to it at least a little bit.
DRARRY- Draco and Harry. C'mon, everyone's gotta have at least 1 slash couple in their favourites.
ROMIONE- Ron and Hermione. Because best friend romance are my favourites and the way it was written was beautiful. From the first book, you could tell that they were going to get together. Thank Merlin's pants that JK didn't kill off Ron...
DRAMIONE- Draco and Hermione. Forbidden romances have always intrigued me and this one in particular does.
HINNY- Harry and Ginny. I love these two because they're perfect for each other and I cannot imagine either of them with anyone else.
SNILY- Snape and Lily. These two because best friends romances FTW! Also, they're adorable.
DRAPPLE- Draco and and apple. I don't know why, just don't ask. But, this ship is hilarious.
SNUPIN- Snape and Lupin. Because, once again, forbidden romances. James never would've accepted this
LUDDING-Luna and pudding. Another nonsensical pairing for when I need a good laugh.
JILY- James and Lily. Despite loving Snily, these two are still adorable. Plus, it's a needed relationship.
PANSY WITH PRETTY MUCH ANYONE- Pansy is just such a flat and 2D character. She's strong, independent and cunning. Pansy's a Slytherin through and through. I especially love Pansy with a Weasley- Ron, Fred and George- mostly. But I also love her with Harry and Seamus. I love all of these characters and imagining Pansy with anyone of them makes me really happy.
MCGONAGAL/DUMBLEDORE- Do these guys have a ship name? I'm sure they do, but I don't know it. Before JK revealed that Dumbledore was gay, I shipped these two so hard. I was a little bit sad that my ship had been dashed by Rowling... Doesn't stop me from shipping them! Honestly, the thought of those two cuddling in Dumbledore's office is too adorable to resist.
GRINDLEDORE- Grindelwald and Dumbledore. I love this guys as much, if not more, than McGonnagal and Dumbledore. I mean, when we learn about their past and then JK releases he's gay, my yaoi radar just kicked right in. Now I ship it!
That's the end of my Harry Potter fangirling. May add more later actually.
Ouran High School Host Club: Kiss Kiss. Fall in Love For those of you who have seen OHSHC, you should know what that is. Here are my top 3 Hosts. That's about all I'm going to talk about now... Anyways, yeah, 3 hosts.
Divergent and Insurgent: When I read the very first page, I was immediately hooked. Beatrice/ Tris is a person I idolize and I try to be like her. She's amazing because, in the face of danger, she is courageous and does what she thinks is right. Tris knows who she is and is brave enough to show people her real self. Four/ Tobias is the perfect guy in my mind. He's just so amazing, strong, intelligent and confident. He just... I really love him. There is only one guy from the series I like more than Four and that's Edward. I loved him from when I first read about him and when Peter stabbed him in the eye with that butter knife, I just wanted to punch Peter in the face! I thought Myra was a very boring and weak character who was undeserving of Edward. Then, in Insurgent, when we got more insight about Edward, I just loved him even more. Myra, as I said before, seemed weak and I was right. I mean, after a guy loses an eye, you just leave him! I mean, how cruel is that? It's like Monica from The Fault in Our Stars... I mean, seriously?
Anyways, I plan to write an Edward/ OC fanfiction because I just adore Edward so much! I don't know what faction, if any, I'd put her in. I'm thinking maybe Erudite because then the story would be more intense. What with all the tension and trouble with Erudite and all. Also, I think Edward was in Erudite too so maybe they could've been childhood friends? Or maybe abnegation would be good too and she has to learn to be selfish for once in her life... Hmmm
I love the society that Veronica set up. Like most readers of the series, I've considered what faction I'd be in.I took the test in the back of the book and I got 3 faction choices; Erudite, Daunless and Amity. Three of the most diverse fanfictions. Let's be honest here, I never would've gotten Abnegation or Candor. I'm too Slytherin for being selfless or honest ;D
Looking for Alaska: I love John Green. Period. I love his YouTube videos, I love his writing, I love his humour, I love his baby, I love his wife and I love his brother! I just, I love John Green. This book made me answer questions I'd never even thought about before.
Also, I have a thing for The Colonel. Let's be honest here people: I don't think any girl that's read Looking for Alaska didn't fall for The Colonel. I mean, he's just so funny, intelligent, caring, attractive, polite and just... I can't. Too many feels! I'm actually writing a Colonel/OC fanfiction right now so be on the lookout for that. I also loved Takumi because he's funny and he's good at rapping. And, who doesn't like a good motherfucking fox hat? No one, that's who.
Alaska, despite being completely unlike myself personality wise, I still found her very relatable. I am not well-versed in the world of males like Alaska. I've never smoked a cigarette. I'm not overly intelligent. I don't have that extremely attractive physique. I'm not outgoing or reckless or a prankster. But, in regards of Alaska caving into societal pressure and her conflicting emotions and her self destructive nature- I can relate to that. Despite us being different in personality, I could relate to her on a more basic level. And that's where I think John Green has succeeded in all of his novels. His characters are so real and relatable. It's the mark of a truly amazing author.
