I am a professional 30-something author with a post-grad degree who moonlights in fanfic and adores Christmas and summer.
I read voraciously (fantasy, science fiction, dark romance, and the occasional mystery) and cannot name one favorite author because I can never decide who's the best. Some of the contenders for the coveted title of favorite author include but are not limited to Anne McCaffrey, L.E. Modesitt, J.K. Rowling, David and Leigh Eddings, Lynsay Sands, Robin McKinley, and David Weber.
My first official fandom, to the horror of my mother, was Queen. They were the first band I saw live at the impressionable age of 15 or so. My parents dropped me and three friends off at a convention center. To this day, I'm still amazed they found us when it was over. They certainly were not expecting their daughter to be reeking of a certain illegal aroma, but it was a rock concert and the people next to us were having a darn good time!
I used to exist mostly in the Duran Duran fandom and made several real life friends there. That period of my life was characterized by several trips across the country to see various shows (Texas to Oregon, Texas to California and Las Vegas, and several trips from city to city in Texas) plus a lot of eyebrow raising from my husband who kindly held his tongue and let me play. He even joined me when I had an opportunity via a radio contest to meet the band. I still check in with the fandom from time to time, mostly as a lurker these days.
I came to the HP fandom through fanfic, following some authors I enjoyed. My favorite characters include Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson, Theo Nott, Bill Weasley, Percy Weasley, Susan Bones, Neville Longbottom, and Cedric Diggory. My favorite ships are Pansy/Bill, Pansy/Percy, Susan/Eddie, Susan/Neville, Pansy/Theo, Pansy/Draco, and Cedric/Hermione. Early on, I became involved with the_leaky RPG communities, and the addiction took hold fast.
I had so much fun with the RPG community that I couldn't stay away long. My charries have found a new home at The Enigma on Insane Journal.
