Harry Potter Related
Movie: Prisoner of Azkaban. I truly love the darkness and the way it was played out. The dementors were superb. It's also my favorite book heh. And even though it's my imagination, I love all the Harry/Hermione time. =D
Book: PoA is still my favorite although HBP I'm slowly starting to like more. I'm not rather fond of GoF though the movie adaptation may change my opinion of that. I've only read all the books once through and heard the audio version of the first three.
Character: Originally Harry and a bit of Hermione. Mostly Snape nowadays and Lupin is slowly growing on me heh. Don't really hate any character though I kinda don't care for Ginny. *shrugs* OH Umbridge! Who can like her?? >_>
Class: I like both Potions & DADA heheh.
OTP: Harry & Hermione... ^^;; I don't mind Ron/Hermione as it is canon but I just can't see Harry with Ginny. Oh and I see no need for Lupin/Tonks even if Lupin needs a little loving. Slowly getting into trio fics tho heheh. And slowly becoming a *gasp* Snupin fan....
Snape is: a complicated man who's sacrificed his whole life I think to defeating Voldemart.
Dumbledore is: Jury's Out. He may just be as conniving as some people believed him to be.
Fic Types: SnapexHarry Gen fics with the occasional Severitus. Recently light Snupin, and HxHr fics. Any good reccomended GEN fics I like to peruse also heh.
Why I like HP: At first I didn't... I thought everyone was just getting on the HP bandwagon and it wasn't untill the second or third book came out that I began to read it. I fell in love with it for its potential to be more adult and dark. It had a lot of those elements yet somehow came out as a very young adult book. The writing, although not superberb, is very distinct and thought out. It's a refreshing read. =D
Looking for any friends around my age or older who have similar interests and likes to have good conversations that don't lead into argument. I like writing fanfiction and just started getting into the HP fandom so love people who wouldn't mind helping me out... Slowly getting into the ArtFandom and drawing... My journal contains everything from personal rants to random memes to fanfic recs to just daily life.
Me in a nutshell: Former Animation student now trying to get a BA in Japanese so I can get into the translation business while writing fantastic novels on the side.
