I'm just a middle age guy who got sucked into the endless (well, 400,000 or so stories is pretty endless) variations of the HP universe.
I got into HPFF about 10 years ago for a few months and then lost all my bookmarks.
I asked my youngest daughter if I could borrow her books to read them to see what the cannon was and soon found myself spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME going from story to story.
Generally I will find a story I like then go to the authors page and read through everything they have written, then look at their favorite authors...
Anyway, I guess it's a better hobby/obsession than mind altering substances (would SPAM and/or bologna qualify?).
I tried to be a beta for one author but with my work schedule I found that I just couldn't be as responsive as 'he' deserved so he stopped sending me chapters.
Anyway, I love reading long stories and have found myself strongly in the H/Hr shipping company. Though I have enjoyed a very good story by Ares.Granger who, I felt, did a very good job of connecting Hr & GeorgeW.
Anyway, Thanks to one and all who work so hard so people like myself who really can't do much in the creative end can enjoy your stories.
I try to submit a 'review' at the end of every story (though my 'reviews' mainly end up thanking the author for thier hard work and generosity in sharing their work for free.
