Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter.

So, imagine my surprise when I discovered that people actually visit my profile page.

As a result, I figure it's only polite to introduce myself more properly.

In case it wasn't entirely obvious, my username is the Imaginizer. What does it mean, you might ask? Well, I just thought it sounded rather grand. Makes me seem a bit more important than I am, I guess. It also kind of makes me sound like a machine, which is pretty cool.

My real name is a very unimpressive 5 letters. There are times when I'm glad my parents chose such an inconspicuous name for me, but there are also times when I wish they'd been a bit more creative. In the end, I suppose, I'm glad they went with inconspicuous.

Now, if you've read this far (and congratulations, if you have), you might at this point be curious as to why I'm here (or you might not care). To put it simply, I'm in serious need of a distraction, am a little bored with life, often feel underappreciated, and really wish there were more than 7 Harry Potter books.

Now, let's address these one at a time:

1. Anyone who's been a grad student knows that the pressure, the frustration, and the fear of failure get a bit much sometimes. Anyone who's been a math grad student knows that we spend most of our time wanting to rip our hair out and set fire to it. I'm not even kidding. You try calculating the Shannon capacity of a 5-cycle graph (last week's homework, at the time of writing this), and we'll see how you feel by the end of it.

Anyway, true, effective distractions can be hard to come by, and honestly, I find nothing more distracting than writing. Some people have friends, other people play sports, and I sit on my laptop. I love my life.

2. Let's face it, everything is dull compared to the wizarding world.

3. When it comes to grad school in math (not sure about other subjects), there's not much room for praise. Generally speaking, you don't get complimented on writing up a really good homework assignment (maybe a couple of remarks like 'Nice!' or 'Exactly!' in red pen), and you always feel horrible about your thesis (I think this is a universal thing, though). It's hard to impress other math students, and everyone else in the universe just doesn't want to hear about prefix-free Kolmogorov complexity.

When I log onto this site, though, and read all my reviews, I suddenly feel like a great person and everyone wants to know what I have to say. It's great, and it makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something that makes people happy.

4. Seriously, why are there only 7? Why? Harry Potter should be like one of those TV shows that just won't die. Like South Park. I want 19 seasons of Harry Potter.

Harry Potter and the Accidental Horcrux reviews
In which Harry Potter learns that friends can be made in the unlikeliest places...even in your own head. Alone and unwanted, Harry finds solace and purpose in a conscious piece of Tom Riddle's soul, unaware of the price he would pay for befriending the dark lord. But perhaps in the end it would all be woth it...because he'd never be alone again.

Harry Potter and the Arcana reviews
Harry Potter's life as we know it is entrenched with destiny, sewn together like a tightly plotted book. But what if his bond with destiny was far more imminent? What if whatever card said that Harry Potter is rubbish at divination was turned upside down? Discontinued, for all intents and purposes.

Outtake: Hogwarts Staff Meeting reviews
The Hogwarts staff gather in the Headmaster's office after the first couple of weeks of classes to discuss their students. McGonagall isn't feeling very Gryffindorish, Flitwick feels mischievious, Quirrell is disturbed, and Snape is sulking. Oh dear...
