I'm a bit liberal with my favorites; I add stories I might not have finished reading yet.
I'm very, very new to the whole world of fanfiction, but I'm taking it all in stride. I was an English major, so I love great writing, and helping those who want to expand their craft as well. Perhaps, someday, I'll get up the courage to do this beta thing and maybe... just maybe I'll post a story someday.
I'm heavily into Harry Potter - not just canon, but the mythology around the series, expanding on the motives of characters and ideas not directly in the readers' immediate view. I'd consider myself a Draco/Hermione 'shipper' (Never found Ron to be Hermione's equal. Plus, rebellion against the pureblood hierarchy would have been so fitting and displayed so much growth!). Drarry and re-sorting fics are amongst my favorites as well. I'd always wondered what would have happened if the Sorting Hat had selected Slytherin, and Drarry is a fascinating alternative view I had never considered previously. My absolute favorite character is Snape. I had my heart throughly broken when I read HBP, and weeped inconsolably at his memories in DH. I think between that, launching HBP across the room at Dumbledore's death, and the laugh/cry thing I did reading the house-elf calvary in DH, everyone in my home was certain that I'd completely lost it. I'm normally quite stoic and disinterested. -_- Other characters I'm fond of are Bellatrix (I swooned when Helena Bonham-Carter got that role), Draco, Hermione, and the Weasleys.
Besides my deep affection for the HP series, I love Doctor Who and really dig the Hunger Games as well.
Looking at everyone's profiles, it seems I should say a bit about myself:
Real Name: Calling me Katchin is just fine. Everyone does _
Age: 25 - (Trivia: The CoS movie came out on my 13th birthday)
Education: Done with universtiy!
Currently In: The US' very own city-state-district & Capitol
If I Were in Harry Potter: I'd be Slytherin. Cunning, ambitious, secretive, charming, a bit selfish, resourceful, analytical, snide, and seemingly cold? That is and has always been me. Plus, the four Houses roughly relate to the four elements. Gryffindor/Fire, Hufflepuff/Earth, Ravenclaw/Air, Slytherin/Water. I'm a Scorpio (water sign).
Favorite Companion: Martha Jones, by a mile. Donna is a close second, then Amy I suppose. I don't even mention that other one. I'm really interested to see where Clara/Oswin Oswald goes.
