Hello hello Vaultians!
My name is Liz and I come to you at the recommendation of the awesome Manda!
I've been RPing for awhile. I started with Sailor Moon RPs, then moved on to some original RPs, back to Sailor Moon, then Harry Potter, then World of Warcraft... and now back to Harry Potter! I've done several different types of RolePlay aswell. Journals, forum based, instant messaging, and within video games are where most of my experience stems. Overall, I've been roleplaying for about 15ish years.
I got into Harry Potter around the time that Goblet of Fire was coming out. I had seen the first book in the bookstore before it got really big here in America, and I put it on my "to buy" list. After it got big however, I lost interest, because I'm one of those people that avoids jumping on bandwagons. My best friend talked me into reading the first book however, and the rest is history.
My favorite character is Tonks. I just loved how much she seemed to understand Harry from the get-go. I had really hoped that she would and Lupin would take Harry under their wing once the series was over. (this was before the last book came out lol). However, I have a deep love for McGonagall aswell. It makes me so happy that she is one of the only characters I've come across in my Pottermore adventures that is really fleshed out. (Not to mention I was ecstatic at the screen time she got in Deathly Hallows Part 2!)
I'll be honest. I'm not a fan of Prisoner of Azkaban (book or movie), and I have no love for Sirius. I don't really understand why people do. I think he's a bad role model and I just seemed to miss whatever it was that got so many people attached to him. I feel for Lupin the way most people feel for Sirius.
That being said, I do have a deep fascination with the Marauders and it is my deepest wish that J.K.Rowling write SOMETHING about that era. There is so many ways that time could go and I would love to see what Rowling has to share!
Maya is a character I created years ago on another Harry Potter site. I still love her. I want to find her a new home (hopefully here!). She's one of those characters that pretty much writes herself... which is awesome.
If I actually went to Hogwarts I feel like I would be a Hufflepuff. I'm a proud Puff! I'm pretty close to Gryffindor aswell, generally whenever I fill out a sorting hat quiz (whether one that is automated, or sorted by humans) I end up in one of those two houses. Pottermore included.
Away from the Potter universe... I'm a big fan of reading. Mainly I read retellings of fairy tales and dystopian societies (Hunger Games, Uglies, Matched, etc). I'm about to make a big move from Chicago to Orlando (literally... in the next few days). It has not deterred me however, from finding a new Harry Potter RP home! lol I love musicals, video games, and other nerdy things!
Long intro is long, because I ramble when not given a guideline. SO HI! Nice to meet you all (in advance)! And I can't wait to get to know you more :)
