Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter.
8-3-07: Well, my fans (if there still are any), I am terribly terribly terribly sorry that I have not updated What Is Eternal in months. I got busy with a few other things in my life and I kind of lost the urge to write this story. I'm sure you all thought that I had abandoned it, and at times I thought I had too. However, for the first time in a long time I am very excited to write my story, and I plan to continue writing it immediately. Since I haven't even looked at my story in so long, I'll need a day or two to re-read what I've got so far and look over all my notes to get myself back on the right track. I just wanted to let you all know that I will have a new chapter up asap and I hope never to take a break like this last one ever again. Thanks for all who have stuck with me.
Basically the only fan fiction I read is Harry Potter, but I also read Lord of the Rings. But in Harry Potter, here are the pairings that I do and don't like. As with any pairing that I love, it all depends on how the story is written. If it's a poorly written story, then the pairing doesn't matter. But if it's brilliantly written, then the pairing is so much better.
Any slash at all
So...my favorite pairing is probably the Draco/Ginny one. My two favorite Harry Potter characters of all time are Sirius Black and Ginny Weasley, but I don't like them in a relationship together. I love them both separately. I especially like Ginny, which is probably why I chose her for my story. And I am a DRACO MALFOY fan, not a TOM FELTON fan. Don't get me wrong, I think Tom is an awesome actor and he does the Draco character justice. But I don't like Draco because Tom plays him. I liked Draco before the movies came out.
I love to write and have been doing it ever since I learned how to type. This Is Who You Are is the first story I've ever put on the internet, and I think it went pretty well. The sequel is also going fine. The tempo and plot is just starting to pick up. And if you like plot twists, then stick around. (wink wink, hint hint)
There are just two things I would like to clear up for everybody regarding Harry Potter. One...Ginny's eyes are brown, not green, not blue. Brown. Second...Blaise Zabini is a boy and his last name has no "m" in it. It's not Blaise Zambini; it's Blaise Zabini. If you don't believe me, see Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, bottom of page 122. Those two things really bug me when people get them wrong.

Everything bolded below are my very favorites.
TSO is extra super special so they get bolded, underlined, and italicized.
I like everything from rock to opera, from country to classical. Just about the only things I don't like are rap and most pop. Let's start with the rock music I like...Queen, Deep Purple, Foreigner, Styx, Van Halen, Journey, Aerosmith, Boston, Eric Clapton, Bob Seger, Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Puddle of Mud, The Offspring, Alice in Chains, Guns N' Roses, Audioslave, Godsmack, Linkin Park, 3 Doors Down, A.F.I., The Allman Brother Band, Ted Nugent, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Eagles, America, Chevelle, American Hi-Fi, Creed, Scorpions, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Beatles, and Sweet.
Country music I like is...Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Big and Rich, Clint Black, Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, Collin Raye, Diamond Rio, Joe Nichols, Gary Nichols, Tim McGraw, Sara Evans, Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, Wynonna, Travis Tritt, and a few others.
Those are the two main categories. Everything else I like is listed here. Trans-Siberian Orchestra, The Irish Tenors, Enya, Bo Bice, Joe Satriani, Michael Buble, Fleetwood Mac, Sugarcult, No Motiv, K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Will Smith, Brian Littrell, Ray Castoldi, Kanye West, 4HIM, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Yellowcard, Mariah Carey, Tamayra Gray, Phantom of the Opera soundtrack, Klaus Badelt, Elton John, Red Rider, Simple Plan, City and Colour, anything classical, anything by John Williams, and lots more.
All the music listed above can be found on my precious iPod mini. Without it I would die and my writing would suffer terribly as well. Music is a very big inspiration for my writing; rarely do I write without music playing. Sometimes if I'm writing a particular scene, I find a song that portrays the emotions and/or event well and put it on repeat until I'm done with that scene. The playcounts on some songs are like in the 50s, mainly because I'll listen to it over and over until a certain scene is just right.
A few random facts about me:
Reading and writing are two of my favorite pastimes.
I'm one of the biggest fans you'll ever find of the Minnesota Vikings (NFL team for those of you who don't know.)
I swordfight. Techinically it's called fencing, but I don't do the olympic kind. I fight with the longsword. Think Lord of the Rings. I do that kind of swordfighting and it's the coolest sport I've ever played.
I am a Christian. If that offends you, sorry. I'm certainly no bible thumper and I have many friends who are atheists, but just so you are aware...I am a Christian.
Things I can't stand:
People who "know everything"
People who fidget ALL THE TIME
Cliches in fan fiction (though one or two on occasion is fun)
People who critize Harry Potter because they heard from their mom's friend's cousin's half-brother who has a friend who knows somebody who heard that the story is all about witchcraft
All bugs except spiders (kinda weird I know but hey, that's how the dander flakes so deal with it)
