Some Excerpts

I discovered [fanfiction] in Tolkien fandom; I wrote a paper about women writers of Tolkien fanfiction and then started writing fan fiction myself. I segued over to Harry Potter fanfiction two and some years ago and now I write both, but primarily HP.
This is too hard, because frankly, I primarily read fanfiction that is set when the characters are in their 20s and 30s (or older); I'm not nearly as knowledgable about the canon texts as I should be. :hides: In general, though, I'd say the defining moment for George (definitely a favorite character of mine) is when he and Fred make their stunning exit from Hogwarts. Though JKR doesn't say how it happens, obviously they'd been having all kinds of secretive outings to be able to get a lease on their shop, and I love their triumphant moment in front of so many students in the castle.
As one who loves libraries (and works in one), I'd actually rather take Madam Pince's role and work in the library. I'd probably spend an inordinate amount of time in the Restricted Section, lol!
