Greetings. I am currently (as of Feb. 2007) a 20 year old male, heterosexual, Panamanian (as in Republic of Panama), university student residing in Canada who, unfortunately, has too much time on his hands (read: too lazy to actually do his work).
I am not what most would call a H/G \"shipper\" in that I do not believe in the childish notion of upholding the sanctity of one -fictional- pairing over another, but I will admit that I do believe that Harry and Ginny are perfect for each other.
My preferences are the following:
Favorite Character: Ginny Weasley (by far and large)
Least Favorite: Albus Dumbledore and Draco Malfoy (It\'s a tie between the the man who doesn\'t seem to comprehend what war is and the spoiled brat)
Favorite HP Book: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Ginny\'s big coming out!)
Pet HP Peeve: Love as a weapon (Am I really the only one who sees that as not only a physical impossibility, but the most ridiculous, childish deus ex machina ever created? What\'s he going to do, hug him to death?)
The World at War Series: A concept that arose in my mind after reading many \"Final Battle\" and beyond stories. I guess after reading too many fairytale-ish stories where Harry basically invokes a deus ex machina to defeat Voldemort (secret amulet, sudden powers, some massive weapon hidden in Hogwarts -no one- has ever heard about, what have you) and then due to Voldemort kicking the bucket all Death Eaters either die or surrender from the backlash, I just got tired of the repetition and decided to make a more...realistic world, where the war against Voldie isn\'t just long, but gruesome and hardfought. Where men and women are tried by chaos and horror and either succumb to it or rise above it.
Note that the WaW series relies heavily on technomancy, as it is my personal belief that between a wizard and a sniper two miles away, the sniper would come out victorious. Based on that knowledge, I have Harry, or some companion to Harry, or an entire Muggle-Wizard thinktank produce Techno-Magic hybrids.
Now, most will challenge the way my series works because it always seems as if either side has an advantage for most of the story, but the truth is that technology does that to a war. But fear not, the scales tend to readjust themselves. As it\'s been said, \"We used semi-automatics, so they got automatics. We used body armor, so they got armor-piercing rounds.\"
One thing that my stories have in common is their basic premise: War is hell.
Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?
WaW Disclaimer: I do not, in any way, shape, or form, claim to understand the full
extent of the horrors of war, nor of its effects on those who participate in it. It is pure conjecture on my part based on written and oral testimonies.
