I'm Tim, and I'm very pleased to know you're reading my bio.
Here's some stuff about me.

My sister put me onto this site, by accident. It happened like this...

I'd seen my sister spending 3/4 of her life on Microsoft Word, yet she'd never tell me why. One day, when my mum, dad, brother and sister were out, I went to look at her laptop (which she had left on so she can't blame me for it!), and I saw she'd left a folder open, with 6 or 7 word documents in it. I clicked on one of them-Lily/James-and began to read. I told her I'd read it when she got home, and how it was great, so she forgot all about her anger and started being really nice to me, and showed me mugglenet.

Anyway, I like marauder era storys, and I reckon Sirius is awesome. I am also ashamed of the fact that I like Peter Pettigrew, but only as a marauder.

I recently read 'I'll Pick You Up', which I enjoyed, and I am currently reading 'You Want To Make a Memory', which has been fantastic so far.

I'm writing a Lily/James fic at the moment, but it's pretty pathetic so far, so ANY tips would be greatly appreciated.

I'm also betaing a Draco/Hermione fic, but I can't think of anything else to write about that so I'll end this paragraph.

Oh yeah, I'm also writing a one shot oh when Harry asks Cho to the ball, from Cho's point of view. It's a bit boring, I might scrap it.

Anyway, thanks for reading my bio, I know I should have written more about myself, but life will go on.

Oh, and my favourite quote is:
'If there's light at the end of the tunnel, it's the light of an oncoming train'-Robert Lowell.

Great story!
Normally I enjoy longer ones, but this was a fantastic exception.
I liked the whole idea of the generations of weasleys gathering for hermione 100th birthday.
Thanks :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I just thought about all the milestone birthdays and anniversaries that my family celebrated and how many people showed up and I have a large family but not nearly as large as the Weasleys. So I thought it would be fun to have them all there. Also I really wanted to show that they are still extremely close no matter how big they get. That's why I thought it important to mention that Hermione and Ron still see Harry and Ginny often and I hope it was implied that they both see the rest of the family just as much (just not all at once like at the party). So glad you liked the story!
