Author has written 16 stories for Harry Potter.
I am shortly going to be posting a bunch of "starts" to stories.
Read and review, or the story gets it.
Seriously, this is a way to gauge interest (and my skill at telling different types of stories).
Results So Far: People really seem to like sadism, oddly enough.
I tend to start stories with "Draco Malfoy is bored" a lot. This is variously code for "Draco wants to do something inventive/brilliant/malicious... but mostly just plain devious" ... because that's Draco Malfoy.
Surprisingly enough, I like Snape a lot better than I like a lot of portrayals of Draco. (Might just be I don't like blonds).
Prior Pet Peeve: How is it that no fanfiction authors understand that Harry is a normal nickname for Henry? Seriously, Harold, Harrison, Heroditus... but not Henry?! "Every tom dick and harry" -- yes, like King Henry.
Current Pet Peeve: Lucius Malfoy was NOT trying to bring Voldie back in second year. He was trying to get Gin, and by extension Arthur in trouble. What sort of conniving Slytherin would willingly allow someone larger than himself to resurface? Particularly when Lucius was at the top of the heap of "Ex Death Eaters and Movers and Shakers to boot"?
Please Note: Ask if you want to add a story to your Draco/Hermione community, particularly if no other Draco/Hermione communities are attached to the story. Chances are there's a reason.
Today's Fun Fact: I managed to get Snape to use the word Sweetheart in a story! I am proud. (Yes, he was being sarcastic. Wasn't it obvious?)
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.
--Langston Hughes, my all time favorite poet.
Today's "This is too sensible NOT to be canon": Bellatrix Lestrange, dragged off to Azkaban, loudly proclaiming that her Dark Lord will return -- but also, very deliberately, confessing to Imperiusing Lucius Malfoy and any other family members. Family doesn't come first for her, but there's no sense in not taking the blame right.
