Some Excerpts

After reading Goblet of Fire, I wanted more… needed more so I did a search online for Harry Potter and after going through all the merchandise sites, I came across Anya’s Naked Quidditch Match. My husband, sister and I all stayed up reading this amazingly hilarious story. We were printing the story and I would read one page at a time. I couldn’t read it fast enough and by the end, I needed more. Three days later, I was still reading fanfic and found Redblaze’s War and Passion, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Slash is my all-time fetish. All pairings as long as it has two men slamming into each other. Did I say too much again? My kinks are bondage, especially leather and ‘toys’. My only squick in a slash pairing is scat or coprophagia.
Funny you should ask that. I have two [favorite characters] actually and most people only peg me for the Snape-lover that I am. So, I will explain my fascination with these two whom I love dearly and have read about them together in fandom, but don’t particularly enjoy together.

Snape because he’s complex. He’s a double-spy, not to be confused with adouble-agent, and all the while, he’s very much a straight-edge character. You know where you stand with him and you know that he’s out for himself only. He doesn’t sugar-coat anything and his snark is delicious. He plays both sides and all the while knows that the only way to survive is to use his amazing intellect. He’s complex and a true genius. I was so excited to see JKR develop him in HBP.

The other favorite of mine is Remus J. Lupin. He’s both a wild man and a tame beast. I love the idea of him… everything about him. I was completely thrown by his relationship with she-who-must-not-be-named. In my mind he will forever be gay, forever be in love with Sirius eating chocolate and taking dirty to his best friend as he shags him into the mattress and I’ll live a happy delusional existence forever forward.
I’d love to see [the Quidditch Pitch] become the largest and most prolific HP archive in fandom. To have it’s name be up there with The Leaky Cauldron and Mugglenet in its popularity and up on JKR’s fan sites award page. That would be cool!
