      I know that you've been here for a little while already but: welcome! I'm Emma, a Ravenclaw prefect. If you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to message me. ❤️ If you have twitter, lots of discussion also goes on over there, if you like! (My tactic was to go to the official HPFT twitter and then look at who follows them, and then you'll find names you recognise and then you get other people suggested and it spirals from there somewhat. )
      It's super lovely to see you feeling so at home here already!!

      Do you ever have that moment of deep profound sadness when you truly take in the fact that Sirius spent 12 freaking years in Azkaban with only thoughts of how his best friend was dead? Like sometimes that level of sadness scares me. #nowords

      @Alexis Black Alexis, glad you're back  Slots 1 and 2 are now taken, and I'm opening up an adicional slot this week, so it's now up for grabs. Who wants it?

      Thanks @PaulaTheProkaryote for the questions! 1. My favorite character is Severus (obviously) but I don't think I really identify with him. His life is so completely different from mine (which is why I find him so intriguing.) Probably, I connect most with Maerna Danazul, the OC from Even the Best Laid Plans. (M) I'd like to think that I got stuck in her situation I could make the best of it but still follow through with my faith. 2. Most of the planning is in my head. I've had various stories in my head for years. Sometimes, I would take weeks to develop a story in my mind. Then one day I realized that I really couldn't rememeber any of them, so I decided to write them down. At that point, Even the Best Laid Plans (M) had been swimming around for about a month and so it began. The one-shots are just free write. In the chapter ones, I've created an outline by chapter which is in a table format. It sits at the end of my rough draft and gets slowly checked off. Sometimes, I'll have dialog, action scenes in the table which are cut and pasted in when I actually get to the writing of that chapter.  3. This is easy: Even the Best Laid Plans, (M) my first one--it's all because of Maerna and because Snape gets to be so Snapey.  Although I really like I Have a Dream and From Fame to Infamy. The former because of the twist at the end. I love twists that make you reread the story and see it in a whole new perspective. (One of the reasons I love JKR) The latter because of how I (tried) to connect each chapter back to present time. I love those types of connections. My beta's favorite is I Hate Multi-Colored Days. At the moment, it's still in the queue. 4. Snape is fun because he has so many layers. Harry is a nice kids, but, honestly, a rather boring character. He's so predictable and sweet. The "bad boy" has always intrigued me. Isn't it a woman's (misguided) dream that she'll find the bad boy and change him to make him better? (However, I was smart enough to actually marry the nice boy.)  His snarky personality allows me to write great one-liners and gives more to explore. For example The Other Spy (M) allows me to explore his darker side. A reader once asked JRK about Snape has a hero and she questioned that, not really viewing him as a hero. Heros are great to make you feel upbeat and positive abut the world, but tend to be rather shallow characters. Snape can be looked at from so many points-of-view. In the very back of my mind, I'm toying with the idea of writing an essay entitled. The Multi-facted SS: Analzying Writers' Perspectives of Severus Snape; however, it sounds a lot like an assignment for English class, so it probably won't actually happen.  5. I'm not sure. They just pop into my head, usually in the middle of writing. However, I have noticed that a) I'm obsessed with colons and the subtitles (3 of the 7 titles) and b) I tend to take already known things and twist them (Shakespeare, famous quotes, speech titles and titles of published books)
