I have been a member of the group for awhile, but I have never posted anything. I figured that should probably change, so here I am.
My HP love started young, when I was ten or eleven and read the first book. At that point, Philosopher's Stone had only come out a short time before and was gaining traction fast in the US. A teacher assigned it to me when she found out I had already read everything on the reading list for the year. It was a great assignment.
Fast forward to today, and I am still a fan as an adult. But I have always been a massive geek and a bit of a (discreet) fangirl about everything from Star Trek to Star Wars to Babylon 5 and Firefly. So it isn't shocking that I would maintain my obsession well beyond where it began.
I like to read some fanfiction, and have even written some of my own under a pen name. I am mostly a roleplayer, doing multi-para to novella games one on one with other fanatics like myself. My favorite characters to play against are Snape and Lupin, the two best in the series in my opinion. But I am especially fond of Snape.
So, that is me in a nutshell. Or more than a nutshell; call it compensation for having taken so long to say hello.
My name is Oli, and I am a recovering fataholic.
