Some Excerpts

I’ve been an active reader in quite a few OTHER fandoms before [Harry Potter] (Star Trek, Star Wars, X-Files, Buffy), but I’d never written anything before. There was just something about this universe that has been created, these characters. It seemed to jump off the page at me. And when I went looking for HP fanfiction, the first writer I found was snegurochka_lee and her wonderful Snupin. One weekend I sat and read everything on her website, then went looking for more. That was the beginning of my happy downfall into fandom. And when I couldn’t find more of the pairings I wanted to read, I tried writing. And that was the beginning of my addiction.
I love any fandom writer who can make my heart do a little flip. Satindolls and Kerryblaze do it regularly with their RP and their fic. Shocfix does it with her emotionally charged writing. Moonix does it with the absolute beauty of her prose.
[I joined TQP because] I’d gotten to know the Captains a bit. I was completely in awe of their writing. And I’m always vaguely surprised that anyone remembers who I am. I was really happy to be able to help out by doing something I do well.
Ultimately I think light will triumph over dark. Harry won’t end up doing it alone. I’d love to have him ultimately kill Voldemort and go on to have a happy life, but I think that he will win, but eventually be completely destroyed himself. Personally I’d like for it to end with Voldemort becoming a lounge singer in Vegas while Harry, Ron & Draco become showgirls in his performance. But somehow, I don’t think this is in the cards.
Mpreg [is my guilty pleasure]. When I reach my hormonal peak during the month, I read lots and lots of mpreg. *blushes*
I hope we can turn the [Quidditch Pitch] site (or collection of sites, rather) into a community that writers will enjoy. Where we can talk about absolutely inane things and things that really matter to us in fandom and in life. I want to help create a community that people like to spend time to find new stories, new discussions. I want to help entertain people. And I want everyone to bow down to the Quidditch Mistress.
