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.

I ship:

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

Favourite Quotes:

If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. & The biggest mistake you can make is worrying you will make one. unknown

Do not walk in front of me, I may not follow. Do not walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend. Albert Camus

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death and judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. Gandalf

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

The bird that would soar above the level of plain tradition and prejudice must have strong wings. It is a sad spectacle to see the weaklings, bruised, exhausted, fluttering back to earth. Kate Chopin

We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own. Ben Sweetland

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Elanor Roosevelt

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King Jr.

Stand up for what is right even if you're standing alone. anonymous

If you would be pungent, be brief; for it is with words as with sunbeam - the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn. Robert Southey

The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. Nelson Henderson

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Norman MacEwan

Don't be afraid to take big steps. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps. David Lloyd George

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. Ralph Waldo Emerson
