It’s strange and slightly disturbing to write about myself like this, please excuse any stumbling adjectives or misplaced descriptions.

So…I live in my head, mostly. At the moment it resides near London, happily enough attached to the rest of me. Soon enough it should be travelling to Southampton indefinitely for the higher lazing experience they call university.

My life is pretty much soundtracked by mew, pure reason revolution, and acoustic ladyland. Aside from music, I love seeing interesting films and of course reading! Favourite films generally include A Never Ending Story and Layer Cake, favourite authors are JKR, Stephen King, and Graham Greene, but those are the condensed versions of those lists! 

I am what is known as slightly Harry Potter obsessive, but I like reading all sorts of books and did before I read those. If I was a Hogwart’s student I’d probably be in Ravenclaw. If I was a gangster in Brighton Rock by Graham Greene...the Boy would probably kill me...

My favourite thing in winter is mocha and thunderstorms. In summer, lemon flavoured ice cream. Or the blue puffo flavour you can get in Italy, and the sea near Gaeta.

I would love to be able to fly without the use of a plane or any other type of contraption but fear I shall remain more like Buddy, ex-incrediboy, than Icarus. But his wings melted and then he drowned, so maybe not?

The best time of day is dawn and twilight. The best seasons are Spring and Autumn. All of these are times of transition, they invite change and extraordinariness. Aside from that, they also (esp. dawn and Autumn) show the most beautiful colours and shades of the world. I enjoy writing poems and short stories but none of them are fanfic (yet) or anywhere near the standard seen here...but it's summer soon and that equals holiday, which means lots of free time, so perhaps. Maybe.

I never thought I'd be feeling so Christmassy in July, you've done a great job and - my favourite subplot, or whatever you want to call it - Moody & Madam Pomfrey!! Made me laugh so much!
Have read this story the whole way through today, couldn't stop til I got to the end heheh.

Author's Response: Grin. Thanks!  I'm glad you're enjoying it and it held up over a whole read rather than just chapter by chapter. I've grown very fond of Moody and Poppy myself, lol.

Chapter 18: Christmas with the Malfoys
What would happen if Professor McGonagall had two beautiful nieces that went to school with the Marauders, and one of them had a pet tiger and the other had a psychic cat?

What a nice chapter!
Really enjoyed all the interaction between the characters, it's interesting reading about what the Marauders might've been like when younger - and the whole Remus &  Romulus thing is intriguing!
Well done for some excellent writing.

Author's Response: I love chapter when I introduce Romulous! Thanks so so so much!

ooooh new chapter! yay!
That Zabini isn't half arrogant, is he?!
I half hope that something will happen to bring him down a peg or two. Maybe a grand unvieling of all this secret betting perhaps?
At least the other guys should come out smelling like roses, right? Maybe not, could go either way I guess!
Look forward to reading more, good job!

Author's Response:

Dear Typewriter,

I had great fun writing Blaise Zabini - he's so utterly evil. Michael and his friends will indeed "smell like roses" in comparison.

However, you'll have to wait until chapter 19 to discover the outcome of the bet.

Actually I am very proud of myself, because I wrote this story pre-HBP, before JKR had told us anything canon about Blaise Zabini. But it looks as if I guessed correctly.

Thanks for reviewing,
