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... shipgekinokyojin.tumblr.com

I love YouTube! My top favourite YouTubers are Evan Edinger, MrRepzion, Tyler Oakley and BlimeyCow just to name a few channels. I also like many, many more. Far too many to actually list because then we would both be here all day
I read a LOT of fandoms. Basically, if I watch a TV show or a movie, if I have the Internet nearby I'll say 'I wonder if this has fanfiction' and then I'll hope onto this website and search for it. I don't know if my favourites will exactly reflect this, but trust me, I read many fandoms. If you read this and think of something I might enjoy, feel welcome to PM me. I don't mind. Really. I never get PMs- it gets kind of lonely sometimes... Anyways! Fandoms... yeah, right! Here we go;
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.
DRUNA- Draco and Luna. They would make beatiful blonde babies... Plus, I think Luna would be one of the few people to judge him for his actions and forgive him completely
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.
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. They're both intelligent individuals who have their own strengths and weaknesses.
DRAPPLE- Draco and and apple. I don't know why, just don't ask. But, this ship is hilarious.
JILY- James and Lily. I was hesitant to this ship at first because James is portrayed as such a twat. But then I had to keep in mind that we were seeing it all from Severus' point of view, which is definitely biased. Lily was a smart girl, so she must have seen something special in James that made her fall in love with him after so much bad blood between them.
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.
Ouran High School Host Club: It's just a really sweet, comedic and fluffy anime. Even though it's usually very silly, there are some important themes and touching moments. Might I say, that one scene in the last episode was entirely frustrating. If you've watched Ouran, then you know exactly which scene I'm talking about. If not, feel free to go and watch it on Netflix or something.
I think the characters in this anime are, as a whole, well developed. They're all got their strong points and their weaknesses. Even though all the characters are lovable, I'm a total and complete Mori fangirl. I've always gone for the goofy type or the strong and silent type. Literally, there's no in between for me.
I don't really have any ships for this anime. Well, except for TamaHaru and HikaHaru. That's probably about it. I really do like OCs for this anime, as you may be able to tell from my favourite fanfictions for the fandom. I just like OCs in general for any fandom.
Divergent series: From the first couple of pages of Divergent, I knew that I would like it. Boy, how right I was. Tris is just such a strong female character, which is a things I definitely look for in young adult novels. Lucky for me, it's a cliché and therefore easy to find. Four is the most perfect guy in literature that I can find. He's got everything that a girl would want in a man. I also quite like Caleb, despite a lot of people hating his guts. I will love him 5ever. The only other guy from Divergent that I love more than Four or Caleb is Edward. I don't know why, I just really love him for all that he's gone through and am happy when he makes another appearance in Insurgent.
I'm not going to read Allegiant in the foreseeable future. Somebody on Facebook didn't tag their spoilers, so I immediately knew everything about what happened. Including the main plot twist and the ending. This ruined the book for me and makes it near impossible for me to read. I hate it when a novel is spoiled for me against my will! From what I've read of Allegiant, which is like the first five chapters or so, it was really good. Even though it was sad for me to read.
Like everyone else that has read the Divergent series, I've considered which faction I would be in. I think I'd be Erudite. They're the misunderstood faction of the series and I usually fall into that category. Like with the Slytherin house from Harry Potter, but that's besides the point. I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and love to learn, even when it's on my own time. I often Google random things to attain more interesting facts to spew at people
John Green novels: I'm going to lump them all together because they usually have similar characters and themes. As much as I love the novels, sometimes the plots seem recycles. That's not to say I don't like them. I'm crazy about them actually! The novels all deal with the same stuff, so you know what to expect, but they're different enough to be interesting.
I've read all of John Green's novels. The Fault in Our Stars was my first and my second favourite. I own the movie and the soundtrack. I'm so obsessed that I know the lines from the movies and the lyrics from the soundtrack. Even the Swedish hop hop track Bomfalleralla.
My top favourite is Looking for Alaska. It may or may not have something to do with my total and complete crush on The Colonel. I mean, let's be honest, I'm sure every girl had a crush on The Colonel. He was just so funny and charming and intelligent. Also, it's mentioned that he's totally ripped so that doesn't hurt at all. I also love Alaska. She's not very much like me personality wise, yet I still found her relatable in her thought process and the kind of change she was going through. The societal pressure and conflicting emotions that Alaska goes through, is reflected in my own life to a certain extent.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth series: This is a really good trilogy featuring your stereotypical strong female heroine. But I find this one to be much better than other ones I've read. The main characters are different in all three of the novels and all have their own huge flaws that affect them throughout the narratives.
The first one is my personal favourite because of the society that she lives in. I've read many a zombie book and seen many a zombie movie, but the world that Mary, the heroine, lives in is very different from everything I've ever seen. I won't tell you anything else because then I might spoil the book for you by accident.
The second one- The Dead Tossed Waves-, however, kind of drops the ball. The main character, Gabry, is extremely frustrating. Even though she's quite strong, her hamartia is aggravating. It makes me want to bang my head against a brick wall.
The third one- The Dark and Hollow Places- makes up for the weakness of the second book. This one has the same cast as the second one, but because the point of view is from a different character, everyone is portrayed in a different light.
From what you can gather, I'm a big fan of dystopian novels that feature strong female leads. Thankfully for me, there are so many novels that fit these two criteria. I'll give you a short list of ones that fit this achetype that I really like:
-The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
-Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari
-Enclave by Ann Aguire
-Divergent by Veronica Roth
-The Coldest Girl in Cold Town by Holly Black
-Life As We Knew It by Susan Pfeffer
-Delirium by Lauren Oliver
-Eve by Ana Carey
These are just the few that I've read that fit into both categories. There are countless others that fit into thus mould that I've yet to read. I've also read countless other novels with strong female characters, but in a regular universe. Or ones sets in a dystopian universe, but a hero instead of a heroine.
