Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter.
My profile pic utterly amuses me.
Well, it seems that I've fallen off the map for a while but I am alive and well and writing again. I just updated The Name of the Game and I'm actually proud of it. Go read it. It's funny...sort of.
Anyway, I am Rae (not my real name but whatever). I read too much. I love words and I love love love critiquing other people's work, not because I'm mean but because I like taking a piece of writing and tearing it to shreds in order to make it better. It's a very satisfying experience. I like many other things as well. Crossword puzzles, sudoku, movies (Slumdog Millionaire is absolutely epic), music (current obsessions being Glee, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Ingrid Michaelson, and Songs for a New World), playing guitar, writing poetry, thinking (I LOVE thinking), taking extremely long walks at night, snow, warm weather (soonsoonsoonsoonsoonsoon please!), building set pieces, instigating (it's a talent of mine)...lots of other things.
I'm noctural and a little touched in the head. My pride and my big mouth tend to get me in trouble. I have yet to realize that No-I-Don't-Deserve-Everything-I-Want and Sometimes-It's-Okay-To-Shut-Up. It's all right though, I'm remarkably good at doing damage control.
I am 100 percent for gay marriage. Just saying.
~~~Pairings I Love~~~
marauders (excluding Prongs)/ OC (s)
~~~Pairings I Despise~~~
teacher/student (gross, eww, bad image, must delete)
snape/anyone (okay, it really depends on how it is written. i've read some snape/lily ones that are good. i like unrequited love...i'm a little cruel that way. i really don't like the idea of snape kissing anyone, especially Remus. yucky)
Harry/Hermione (it bothers me, im sorry)
any pairing if it's gross, graphic or will thoroughly corrupt my brain for the rest of eternity. i am not against smut if it is artistically done, but most of it is boring, tasteless, ridiculously implausible and doesn't contribute to the story at all. if i wanted something like that i would go read the romance novels in the grocery store.
