Some Excerpts

[regarding the site, The Quidditch Pitch:] I was up late one night flipping through different sites and realized there was no one site where you could read any rating/any pairing. The next morning I bought a domain name, asked Simons Flower and Madam Minnie to help admin, and it took three months to get things working so we could upload authors. I liked the idea of having one site where you could be a community through blogging, forums, stories, and I wanted something completely interactive. I hope that's what we've achieved thus far.
[Q: Is Dumbledore dead, mostly dead, or Obi-Wan dead?] I think he's dead. Harry knew it when the spell binding him to the wall was released. I don't think he's truly gone though but I doubt he'll interact like Obi-wan did. He told Harry one time that our love ones never truly leave us. Plus his portrait was sleeping!
I believe in happy endings. LOL. However I think if they all died as elderly wizards, the same night, in their beds, and wound up in the beyond together…That would make me happy.
I would like for [the Quidditch Pitch] to be known as the site that has the most fun. I'm looking at adding Podcasts and more interactive features. I know I've always looked for a site that actually becomes a great community no matter how big it is. I guess it would be fun to be recognized by JKR too.
Ron is the easiest for me to write. I generally hear his voice. The character that's nearly impossible is Snape...It takes a special sort of person to write Snape properly.
