Some Excerpts

I started reading the books around Goblet of Fire, but I didn't get drawn into fandom until I read Order of the Phoenix. I bought the book the day after it came out because I saw it on sale -- I had originally planned on waiting a few weeks until the price dropped. That's unfathomable now -- and devoured it in less than a night. I fell in love with caps-lock Harry and started seeking out fic the next day....The writing followed naturally about two months later; I've always written, and I had so many ideas about what I wanted to happen next.
Harry, always Harry. His life has been so hard, and I love that JKR lets him have emotions about that, but he's still brave and a leader and he loves his friends. I once called Harry the great fictional love of my life, and that's still the best way to describe how I feel about him.
If he's living and happy, I'll be satisfied, but if I'm getting the fantasy life here, I'd hope for a life of threesome-y love with Ron and Hermione, a life of snarking with Draco, or a life of getting down and dirty in the garden with Neville. Because that would make me happy!
[my favorite book is]: "Order of the Phoenix". I know I'm practically alone in this, but I love everything about that book. I love Harry's anger, and Neville's importance, and Luna's wackiness, and Tonks's klutziness, and the prophecy, and the flashbacks to the Marauders. And I hate when people underestimate its importance to the arc. So much happens!
