What are your hobbies and interests outside of Harry Potter?
I'm a total geek (in a good way I like to think). In my spare time (when I'm not at the University of Doom studying)I do many things. I attend Tae-Kwon-Do classes which are fun, if slightly painful (I've been doing it for five years and pushups are still likely to provoke groans of misery). I also write, both fanfic and original. The fanfic is mainly of the slash variety but the original fic is a work in progress fantasy novel.
I like to watch TV shows that make me think - West Wing, Firefly, Buffy,Doctor Who (okay Doctor Who might partially be because of David Tennant *grins*). I'm a reading addict, whose main addiction of choice is fantasy novels. I also enjoy movie watching, playing random games of cricket and dancing round the house blasting music really loudly.
Finally I love history and politics, am a member of an left wing Australian political organisation, am passionate about gay rights (I'm pansexual myself)and will happily mock myself at the first available opportunity.
What is your favorite book( s ) outside of Harry Potter?
I actually don't have a favourite book, because there are far too many I adore. So I shall randomly pick two of my top ten and talk about them. I know a lot of people must say Lord of the Rings but I adore them ever since I was given The Hobbit to read as an eight year old. Just the myth, the grandeur and the characters that sweep you up in them (it was one of the only books I can remember crying over). It gave me a window on to another world.
One of my other favourite books of all time is Good Omens. I mean Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman/Angels/Demons and well...ducks. This book owns me for I have read it multiple times and it still makes me laugh very much (especially Pippin Galadriel Moonchild).
What is your favorite quote?
I'm rather fond of a couple.
"Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job" (Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy)
"I drink from the keg of glory, Donna. Bring me the finest muffins and bagels in the land" (The West Wing)
What do you most look forward to doing in this community?
Getting to know people, honestly. It's fun to get to know people (I'm also hoping there will be random discussions, particularly involving Monty Python. If we could talk about the Evil Overlord List too I would be very happy *smiles*).
What is the most important thing we should know about you?
Other than the fact that David Tennant is going to marry me but he just doesn't know it yet? ;)
That I can be a little shy about joining in sometimes but I will always make an effort to drag myself out of that.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
I like both the books and the movies of Lord of the Rings, I ship both Sirius/Remus and Remus/Tonks, I love to reread the Harry Potter books (I'm reading them to my little cousin at the moment)and I have a crush on two people at once.
