If you've googled "Aida" and "Luthien" you can probably guess some things about me.

Aida being an opera by Giuseppi Verdi, you could guess that I like opera, the Italian language, Egyptians, nationalism and tragedy.

Luthien being the name of an elven princess from The Lord of the Rings but from long before the actual events of The Lord of the Rings, you could guess that I like Tolkein and mythology.

Both being princesses, you could guess that I am female.

You could also check out my author banner for an idea of what I'm like.

I still think it's easier if you just ask what you want to know.

Favorite HP characters
I love Luna. She's the most insane, ridiculous and original character in the entire series. Generally, I prefer characters who are morally ambiguous and have rich internal lives (what Henry James would call "rounded"). So I think it makes sense that my other favorite characters are Severus Snape, Sirius Black, Albus Dumbledore, Tom Riddle (Not Voldemort) and Remus Lupin.


While I love reviews, and I do read all of them, I don't normally respond to them. If you have any questions about any of my stories feel free to PM me through the boards or better still, pop by my dueling thread.

Duel me!
