Author has written 5 stories for Harry Potter.
I love writing. I have really appreciated alot of stories on this site, and I had some of my own I wanted to put on. I love Discworld Novels, RA Salvatore's Forgotten Realms books (i haven't really gotten into anyone elses), LOTR, and POTC. I am a Harry Potter nut, but I actually detest Harry himself. Thanks to fandom, I have found I am not alone. All you SSHG, BZGW, and DMHG shippers out there, I agree that the only good pairing for Harry is no pairing for Harry. Or Ron.
I am also a Broadway nut. You've been warned.
For those people who are interested, as I have gotten questions on this, my sn, shieldmaidenofmithrilhall comes from Lord of the Rings and Salvatore's Forgotten Realms Drizzt Novels. The Shieldmaiden part comes from Lady Eowyn, who is called the shield maiden of Rohan, and Mithrill Hall is the dwarven city that King Bruenor and company discovered/rule/fight over (this is why they are called the companions of the hall). So anyway, sorry for sounding pompous and longwinded about that.
My favorite quotes (not like anyone reads this, but I'm putting off AP homework...again):
"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives mimicry, their passions a quotation." Oscar Wilde
(This quote kind of defines how I view writing. I think all writing is pretty much plagiarism because there's nothing new. Every new thing was new 100 years ago and forgotten. Thats how lasting things are.)
"There is no such thing as a moral or immoral book. Books are well written or badly written." Oscar Wilde (from a picture of dorian grey)
"Anything too stupid to be said is sung." Voltaire. very true... maybe thats why I love to sing
"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost/ the great that is strong shall not wither/deep roots are not reached by the frost/from the ashes a fire shall be woken/ a light from the shadow shall spring/ renewed shall be the blade that was broken/and the crownless again shall be king." JRR Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
Anybody can prevail, everybody's free to fail, no one can be put in jail for their dreams - Assassins, the musical
Everybody's got the right to some sunshine...not the sun but maybe one of its beams... rich man poor man, black or white, everyboyd gets a bite, everybody just hold tight to your dreams! Everybody's got the right to their dreams! Fire guns into ceiling - Assassins, the musical
I did it so there would be a trial and Charlie would get to be a witness and he would go on TV and save the world! - Squeaky Fromme describing why she attepmted to assassinate President Gerald Ford
I just want somebody to love me - for my money! - Freddy Benson in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
From Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (the movie):
Freddy: "She just gave me 80 francs. That's like...twenty bucks! Do you know what it's like to take a woman for twenty bucks?"
Lawrence Jameson: "I'm afraid that's a little bit out of my league."
Janet: Well, I'm not selling everything. I'm keeping the mink. Is that wrong?
The Jackal: Bye Bye, Boys, it was fun. P.S. I'm keeping the money. Is that wrong?
Lawrence: Fanny, the freedom fighters thank you.
Freddy: Oh, you mean Lady Fanny of Omaha.
Things I like (alot):
Severus/Hermione (my absolute favourite Pairing)Severus/Hermione when Draco is a friend and not a complete arse
Harry/Pansy (but I prefer it when Harry dies b/c he is a hormonal creep)
the A&E 5 hour Pride and Prejudice with COLIN FIRTH!and Jennifer Ehle (and Crispin Bonham-Carter as Mr. Bingley)
Things and Pairngs I don't like:
Harry/Hermione - this is wrong
Harry/Ginny - also wrong
Ron/Hermione - extremely wrong. Hermione needs Slytherins (ie: Severus, Draco, Lucius, Theo, or even Blaise if necessary)
Ron/anyone ( Ron dies alone by Shiverboo)
cheese, eggs, and milk
Harry Potter (not the book, but Harry himself after book4. He goes crazy)
when Blaise is a girl
The 1940 Greer Garson/Laurence Olivier Pride and Prejudice
The Kiera Knightly P&P. Don't even get me started (and you can't say I didn't give it a chance. I saw it three times in theatres before subsequently deciding it was the worst adaptation in the world.)
Oklahoma! -The Hogwaorts kiddies are putting on a musical. It will be DMHG and eventual BZGW, with a little HPGW at first (though it pains me to write it). And if you don't like the idea of Snape romance, don't read it, b/c there will be some Snape/OCness. But nt Mary Sue. I swear, if it's mary sue, I will not post it.
How it should have happened - absolutely amazing, if I do say so myself. Actually, the writing is crap, but it's full of Harry Bashing. What more do you want? It's not on hiatus, I promise i just wrote a new chapter (I can see all seven reviewers sitting w/bated breath...or cursing, as many are apt to do). I just can't upload it. Flame, I don't care. It's fun to write. This next chapter (year 4) is my favourite. Requisites: in every chapter, Harry must die, and Draco and Hermione must get together. If Ron dies, I get bonus points. He doesn't die in year 4.
The Bet: 10 chapters and counting. On hiatus
Just Another Day:3 chapters and counting... On hiatus
Reunion: 4 chapters and counting - in the works
I'm also working on a lovely Dramione story. It will be DMHG, BZGW, with lots of Ron Bashing, if I can help it. I'm on chapter 4, so good luck for that one.
I'm thinking of re-uploading my songfics. I like them alot.
