Hey everyone! My name is Emma and I am proud to call myself an obsessive fanfictionite. In this, I mean that I can't stop reading it. Writing is a whole 'nother story. Seriously, everything I write reads like an essay. :(
Anyway, for those of you who are actually reading this profile, here is some useless information about me.
I've been completely obsessed with the Harry Potter books since the summer I turned 7, and after 8 years I haven't stopped. My mom started reading The Philosopher's Stone out loud to me, but I was so engrossed in the book that I took the book and read the whole thing by myself late at night. I've always been a good reader, and I can read almost inhumanly fast. I used to do reading races with my friends... That's another story.
My second favourite series is Percy Jackson and the Olympians. NOT the Heroes of Olympus series though. I think this is because the first series was the epic tale of a hero, where as this is more like, "Percy and his friends have adventures together!". What's weird is that even though HoO is way more serious and dangerous, even, the adventure just isn't as gripping, as exciting. Also, I REALLY REALLY miss Percy's first person narration. His voice... Rick Riordan did a very good job of writing like a teenager. The new books are all plot and less character. (EDIT: House of Hades was amazing, though. And Nico. OMG. I'm re-reading the whole first series with new eyes.)
I ship WAY too many couples, a little crazily. My favourite fanfic ships are Scorose, Romione and Percabeth. I like to keep it canon. :) No Dramione for me.
I pretty much live for music. My favourite artists include but are not limited to Of Monsters and Men, Grouplove, Imagine Dragons, Regina Spektor, Sharon Van Etten... Seriously, way more people should listen to Sharon Van Etten. Listen to her song, "A Crime". Right now. Also, I've recently become a little obsessed with the band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Listen to their songs "Home" and "40 Day Dream".
I can't stand One Direction. Sorry, tweens of North America, Great Britain, Australia, the WORLD.
If you want fanfic or music recommendations, PM me. I like to think I have decently good taste in both. :)
