Greetings Eathrlings! My name is actually Minerva, though Evenstar is from Lord of the Rings. I am a Virgo from Jersey, England that has lost her sanity!
I LOVE TO READ fantasy books and poetry. The only works I cherish that are not those genres are A Separate Peace, The Outsiders, and Philippa Gregory's books.
Emily Dickinson, Longfellow, Robert Frost, and Shakespeare are the poets I enjoy most.
My favourite fantasies are: Lord of the Rings, Inheritance Trilogy, Crown Duel, Abarat, The Bartimaeus Trilogy, Young Wizards, Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, The Thief Lord, The Wheel of Time, The Death Gate Cycle, The Adept, & Artemis Fowl.
James/Lily - probably my favourite couple since I prefer the Marauder era over Harry's era.
Hermione/Draco - in the books I know Hermione shall end up with Ron, but I prefer fan fictions where she is with Draco because I dislike Ron; I think he is funny, but terribly shallow.
Remus/Sirius - I know many of you are thinking,"Oh my gosh! Slash...EW!" Well, relax because I have very few stories where they are together and the ones I do have contain warnings, however, if homosexuality does bother you I pity you for being prejudice and closed-minded. I know Remus is with Tonks in the books, however, I am passionately in love with Remus. I found Tonks infuriatingly inquisitive and unorganised since Order of the Phoenix, so Remus is either Sirius' or HE'S MINE! Thanks, I just wanted to make that clear. lol

The greatest ignorance is to reject something you known nothing about. & Don't judge those who try and fail. Judge only those who fail to try. & Don't wait for your ship to come in. Row out to meet it. H. Jackson Brown
When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unkown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly. Patrick Overton
