Introduction

Aside from being an HP fan I love studying and making historic(and wizarding) costumes and I do vintage dancing (any era) and I'm an all around geek of many trades. I can't wait for Terminus!

Which character do you relate the most to?

I'm really into Percy right now. I can relate to how he feels isolated within his own family. I am also terribly stubborn, can have a really hard time admitting I was wrong about something and will avoid confrontation at almost any cost.

How did you get to become a fan of HP?

Back in college my friend's mum, gave us the first three books and said we must read them. I was hooked. I wasn't really active in fandom until last year when I finally admitted that I was an HP geek and found the amazing group of people here!

What is your favorite book? Why?

The answer changes everytime I'm asked this queston. Currently I have to say Book 3 because I started reading the books when the first 3 were already published but it was the 3rd one that I started to realize the complexities of the story.

Who is your favorite character? Why?

I got a soft spot for Remus for reasons that too complicated to explain here, and for Percy for reasons listed below. I also love the evil mischief of Fred and George.

Which house are you a member of?

There's absolutely no question that I'm a Ravenclaw but I definitely have some Slytherin undercurrents in my personality.

What marchek is saying about this Meetup Group

A group of intelligent, witty, and above all, warm-hearted people brought together with a common sense of whimsy and a love of the fantastical. In other words, your average Harry Potter fans!

    Really, it was NO biggie. I had a fantastic afternoon! Seriously, you organizers do SO MUCH MORE- CONSTANTLY! Taking a few food orders is nothing. Plus, it gave Santina and I some time to 'bond' a bit! Please don't think on it. BTW, the hunt was really fun... AND, we cleared out Gringotts to boot! Fantastic meetup, as usual. xo

    I love the 'Weatherby' costume idea! I agree that the Weasley home was probably tough sometimes while growing up (except for maybe the twins!), so I get what you mean. You're still way. WAY cooler that Percy -though it's sweet of you to give him so much empathy ; ps- I love pinstripes.
