Slytherin Award made by me; RoxiMalfoy
Hello HPFTers!! As most of you already know, I am Deana; Draco Malfoy enthusiast & author of Draco/OC Novel; Love, Not War[M]!! (It's kinda of my baby!!) I'm from Ohio, and I am a certified Medical Assistant. I have been a part of this beautiful community since March of 2008, although I did take about a year-and-a-half long hiatus in 2013-2014 to finish school and move to the big city to start my new CMA career. Currently, I am the office manager of an addiction medicine clinic on the weekdays, and on weekends I work for a Respite facility with special needs children. (Yes, it's true; I have no social life, lol!!) I am the proud mother of a Pomeranian pup named Mocha, and Flame-Point Siamese kitty named Lunala. My furbabies are the only children I have, currently, and I am perfectly okay with that!
Truth be told, I am a SlytherDor (approx. 55% Slytherin vs. 45% Gryffindor) and yes, I did spent my first 7 years on the other forum in the Lion's Den... However, after about a year's worth of soul-searching and self-evaluation, (& after Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin TWICE!) I finally came to terms with my inner-snake, and have now fully embraced my Slytherin qualities!! I love my house, and couldn't imagine being anywhere else in the world!! On the Ilvermorny side of things, I am a proud Pukwudgie; which honestly comes as no surprise, considering my career(s) in the medical field.
I first discovered Harry Potter in January of 2000. My friend Sarah had been gifted a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for Christmas that year (December 1999) by one of her Aunts, and she was NOT a big reader at all. She knew that I loved books, however, so she asked me if I wanted it. (Gotta love re-gifting, haha!!) Of course I said yes, because I had been hearing a lot about the Harry Potter series and wanted to see for myself what all the fuss was about… Now, seventeen years later, here we are, haha!!! I cannot even begin to imagine what my life would've been like had I not discovered Harry & his friends! (The horror!!)
In more recent news... I was promoted to Staff here at HPFT in July 2017!! After 9 years of being here, it certainly feels great to finally be able to give back to this wonderful community that has given me so much over the years!! I may be the newest member on Staff here at HPFT, but please do not be shy!! Feel free to ask me anything! My inbox is always open to members, and I will be happy to answer any and all of your questions to the best of my abilities. I look forwards to serving you all over the next year's House Cup, and hopefully many more to come! It is so great to be here, and I am so glad that we have this wonderful little corner or the internet to call our own.

Banner by: floralprint @TDA
Percy Weasley was tired of being underestimated when all he wanted was to be treated like an equal. He had been longing for someone to acknowledge his true potential and take him seriously. Now that he had found just that, he was not about to let go. No more would he be mocked and mistreated by his peers, for Percy Weasley was about to commit the ultimate betrayal.
