Brace yourself, kids- I'm thinking about trying my hand at fanfiction (AAGH! -E).
You can blame the idea on my friend. He was with me the night that I was cleaning out my room and found a hat that I'd bought in Prague during high school. It's a long, dark green velvet hat with black accents and a tassle on the tip. It's floppy, almost like the long ski caps that you see in comics. Anyway, I was goofing around, and I put the hat on while wearing my glasses, and my friend said the infamous words:
"Oh my god, you look like a student teacher at Hogwarts. Wait...oh god, and those are Slytherin colors!"
So now, thanks to him, I have the burning desire to get yet another journal and use it to chronicle the adventures of a student teacher/TA at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. (Of course, now that I've posted this here, people who surf on in here will steal the idea, and they'll probably do a better job of it, too.) She'd most likely be an American, mostly because I don't know enough about England and/or Britian to write her as coming from there, but that's the only big, major oddity. It'll be fun to write about the events of the HP universe from a different perspective...
...unless, of course, you all see this and big red flags start going up, in which case I give you permission to tackle me and bind my hands in order to stop me from committing a Horrible Crime Against Fiction. We all know that my sense of good judgement is not so good, ("I wansumore plum wine. Can I pleeease have summore? Isso good..." *flop* "I'm sleepy...") so that's why I'm coming to you all. Suggestions?
