Thou marvel’st at my words, but hold thee still. // Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill ... William Shakespeare Macbeth Act 3, Scene 2
Ambition has one heel nailed in well, though she stretches her fingers to touch the heavens ... Lao Tzu
I recognize in thieves, traitors and murderers, in the ruthless and the cunning, a deep beauty a sunken beauty ... Jean Genet
My guilty pleasures include impolite swear words, the occasional dirty martini with extra olives, Steampunk, Goth/EBM/Industrial music and clubs, black clothing, black humor, books, and sarcasm. Regarding interpersonal communication, as Gollum would say: We'se be nice to thems if thems be nice to us. I like words and I don't speak code.
Q: Help! I can't figure out Livejournal! How do I actually get to your journal to read your blog entries?
If you're wondering who I am and/or why I've friended you, it's simply because I enjoy reading what you have to say, your writing, or both. Or, I may have met you at Nimbus 2003, POA NYC 2004, The Witching Hour 2005, Phoenix Rising 2007, or Lubricus 2011. Anyone is welcome to add me to their reading list and lurkers are fine by me. Feel free to comment, friends or visitors alike. I do not automatically friend back -- it just depends. I do lock some posts, just as an FYI.
I've been in Harry Potter fandom since 2002. I found the Sugar Quill first, but came to find their pairing restrictions too limiting. I moved on to Fiction Alley. I became a moderator at Fiction Alley in 2003 and modded there until 2006; I moderated the nifflers program and The Slytherins forum. I had the privilege of moderatoring at hd_writers from 2011 to 2013. I'm a committed Draco-phile and my favorite book in the series is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
I am DustSickle21 at Pottermore, and was Sorted to Slytherin.
Harry Potter is my fandom. Slytherincess is my pen name. I archive at AO3, Fiction Alley, and The Hex Files. NOTE: I will be archiving all my fics, with a very few exceptions, exclusively at AO3. As time allows, I'll be moving them over and hope to complete this by 2015.

Purely academic, Potter ...
If I'm allowed to live . . . I shall not remain insignificant. I shall work in the world and for mankind.
