Happy birthday, J.K. Rowling! Which of her seven Harry Potter novels do you think is the most satisfying read?
I think one is a few days old but I wanted to answer it anyway. Since I big of Harry Potter. *laughs* Anyway, my favorite of the seven books is Prisoner of Azkaban. You get introduced to Sirius and Remus in that one. And they are my two absolute favorite characters in the series.

Deathly Hallows comes in a very close second, with the exception of the epilogue. I dunno, I just didn't like it. Probably part of it being I loathe Ginny Weasley for being such a *gag* fangirl.

Which is probably why (though I was a fan before that) I love to read fan fiction. My absolute favorite pairing is Harry/Draco. I just love the idea of them together. Followed closely by Harry/Hermione.

Writer's Survey

1. What genre do you write (poetry, novel, plays...)? I write some poetry, though I don't think it's all that great. *shrugs* Also I write Harry Potter fan fiction, short stories, tried my hand at novel length once, didn't work out too well. I write some prose too, and drabbles.

2. What is a theme that you write a lot about? Romance for the most part, both the good parts of love and the bad. Sometimes I just set out to write the raunchiest thing I can. I've been told (by some anyway) that I'm really good at writing sex. *shrugs*

3. Have you ever written about your own life? Does writing journal/diary entries count? Cause the answer is yes if it does; though I mostly write them over on Open Diary. I really should start writing here on LJ more often. As far as actual stories about my life, kind of. Though it was worked into a fictional story. I guess a small piece of me goes into everything I've written.

4. What is the longest thing you have written? Hmmm well as I mentioned above, I tried my hand at a novel length fiction once. I think I got to 13 chapters. I don't really remember a page count though. But that is the longest thing I've written to date.

5. What would you say is your best work? There are a couple actually that I'm rather fond of. All of them are Harry Potter fan fic except one. One is called The Devil You See and it's sequel Devil's Snare. Also a rather humorous fic called Extreme Death Eater Make-Over: Voldemort Edition. And a little short story called Stolen Moments.

6. Have you ever gotten anything seriously published? You mean besides here on the net? No, I'm not sure I really want to publish my writing. *shrugs* I know others would disagree with me, but I'm not sure that's what I want.

7. Do you ever want to get anything seriously published? I'm not sure I want publish anyting like I said above.

8. Do you want to be a writer when you grow up (that is, writing being your only source of income)? I think this question should be Do you want to be a published writer when you grow up because I am a writer. Just not a published writer. And no I don't want that to be my soul source of income. It's not a job that I want to be paid for. It's more a hobby and a passion. But I don't really want to be paid to do it.

9. Do you let other people read your writing or are you very secretive about it? For the most part, yes I do share it. But it depends on what it is. And even then, I'm picky about who actually gets to see what I've written. If it's something I don't want to share with anyone then no one sees it.

10. Do you ever throw your writing away, or do you keep all of it? I'm pretty bad about keeping everything I've written. Whether it be in the notebooks I have or on my computer. I've pretty much kept it all.

11. Who is your favorite character you have invented? This is a tough one! I've invented a few characters over the years, and I truly love them all for different reasons. But I think Saphira (named after the first  dragon Eragon has in the Inheritence Cycle series)  is my favorite. She is also quite possibly the most interesting character I've ever created. And she's very spunky. Which I love about her. *smiles*

12. What is your greatest source of inspiration? Music. Always has been. As absolutely cliche as it sounds. I've always found inspiration in music, be it the lyrics or the feelings that music invoke in me. I've always sort of written little stories in my head while listening to certain songs. And sometimes those little stories in my head get written down. *smiles* And of course I always write with music on.

13. Name one of your works: Other than the ones I've already mentioned, there is one called Fallen.

14. Is your dream to get on the New York Times Bestseller's list? *Shrugs* Not really, I'm perfectly happy writing and posting on the net if that's what I want to do. Besides I write everything I do for myself first then others.

15. Do you expect to get on the New York Times Bestseller's list? No, and probably not ever.

16. How old were you when you wrote your first serious work? I believe I was 9 or 10. It was about a girl waking up one morning and finding herself to have shrunk to the height of 3 inches and all the adventures and mishaps that follow.

17. If you write poetry, is it rhymed or unrhymed? Unrhymed, I've never believed for a minute that poetry has to rhymn. I think it detracts from it actually because you're too focused on making sure everything ryhmns that you lose the feeling of it.

18. Is imagery one of your strongest points in writing? Yes and no, I always like to make sure a reader has a good mental picture but I don't overdo it either. Emotions are my strongest suit actually. Writing is about feeling but at the same time you need a picture to help that feeling come out. Or so I think.

19. What IS your strongest point in writing? Emotions.

20. What is your weakest point in writing? Grammar definately, I need all the help I can get with it!

The dusty road stretches on and on as far as the eye can see. The wind picking up particles of the gritty sand and swirling them around in a cloud of dust and debris.

The sound of it is somehow soothing, the gentle rustling of it a balm to a wounded soul.

And as the tears make tracks down my cheeks, I wonder if any amount of balm will ever heal the deep wounds of my soul.

Or if they will just continue to bleed freely, a crimson river flowing into a sinister lake of blood.

As I walk this lonely road alone, I can't help but hope that someone will come along and rescue me from it, lifting me up and carrying me away from the desperate pain and sorrow I feel myself drowning in.

The walls are closing in, the air thickening and harder to breathe. I feel myself being smothered slowly in it.

And yet I relish in it, embrace it even, until I feel the last breathe about to leave my body before the wall suddenly fall back, the air thinning out, becoming breathable again.

I take long slow lungs of it to the very core of me, feeling it waking me up, making me feel alive again.

And when I look up to see who has saved me from my ultimate demise, I see no one, but I hear a clear, liquid note carrying on the wind, a song of some sort. And with it comes hope of a brighter day.

Hope that I won't just be left in the dust.

This time you guys get one of my (in)famous Harry Potter fanfics. This one has been stewing in my head for AGES now, not really forming into anything no matter how hard I tried. So I just sort of left it alone and figured that when the time was right, it would finally come to me. And it did.  I hope you all like it!

And for those that want to know, it was inspired by the song "You Look Good In My Shirt" by Keith Urban.

Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter or any related characters. They all belong to J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros, Scolastic Books, and Bloomsberry. I just borrow them for a while! Hehe

One question.

One chance.

One honest answer.

That's all you get.

You get to ask me ONE question.

Any question, anything, no matter how crazy, dirty, or wrong it is.

No catch.

And I thought I was nervous yesterday. I'm a total nervous wreck more so today than yesterday. The fact that the Sox could clinch another trip the World Series if they can pull out a win tonight against the Rays is totally making me crazy.

Of course the anxiety was driven up a few notches last night when stupid TBS had a power issue and for the first twenty minutes of the game, we got stuck with Steve Harvey.

Thank GOD for living in the New England area and being able to listen to WEEI. I left it on even after the stupid idiots at TBS got their shit fixed. I had the tv on mute and the radio on. I think I'm going to do the same thing tonight too.

Man, I am a total nervous wreck about tonight. I'm telling you, the Red Sox are going to be the death of me. They will probably write on my gravestone or better, as my cause of death on the death certificate: Heart Failure due to overall stress of the Boston Red Sox nearly screwing up again. Or something like that.

But seriously, Thursday night's game was a total I'm-Going-Die-From-The Stress-Here game. I admit I walked away for a little bit. My nerves just couldn't take it. But when the cheering in my living room started, I quickly turned it back in time to see Big Papi crush one. Suddenly it was a game again!

I  stuck it out after that and watched in total joy and amazement as my team climbed out of the ditch and got it done!

Literally I'm sick and tired and very, as my friend Crys would say, emo. *Sigh* I hate being sick. Yes I'm whining, but I can. I'm sick. So *sticks tongue out*.

I think I've contracted a cold or something. I feel all achy and just yuck. My throat is killing me and I just feel like I've been beat up by someone.

The weather is not helping either. It's still raining. Yuck. I like rain but this is just too much. It needs to go away. NOW.

So does my cold.

Well that's enough whining for now. I think I'm going to curl up and watch a movie or something.

And probably fall asleep.

I hope everyone else is having a better weekend. *HUGS*
