Hey Tom! :D In the beginning, you receive a logic puzzle you need to solve. The 5 main clues are hidden in squares throughout the grid, and you find them by either stumbling upon them, or by answering trivia questions and being given the location to the next clue. As for the grid, you need to have o...

I voted Beauty and the Beast, but it's not necessarily the greatest. >> It was just the very first movie I saw in the cinema. I was...five years old, I think. Anyway, I honestly could not say which Disney animated film is the best. But IMO, their early works were the true masterpieces. BatB, The Lit...

Glad for this topic, as mine's a bit of a trick.

Selwyn is simple: SEHL-win.

Megaera is more difficult: mah-GEHR-ah.

If someone can't pronounce Meg, my nickname, I'll throw my grammar books down the toilet, á la Ginny Weasley. ;)

Megaera is, of course, one of the Furies (Erinyes) of Greek mythology. I chose it because there is a character in the HP books called Alecto and she is another of the Furies. Megaera also sounds like a good, pureblooded name, which is what my HOL character is supposed to be. ;) Selwyn is from the H...

Megaera Selwyn, reporting for duty! :D You can just call me Meg. I'm 22, from Texas, USA and have quite the obsession with Harry Potter. Ask my friends - off the top of my head, I can tell you all the tiny little details of the books without looking them up. They complain that it's too freaky, ha! ...

My story is relatively straightforward. When I was 11, I was desperate for well-written, engaging and challenging books to read; unfortunately, at the time, most books with those specifications were for adults and it bothered my dad to see me reading "grown-up" books. (Note that my mum never cared ...

I read a little over 500 last year. I kid you not. I wasn't real swift in math in high school, but I was so talented in English that I "graduated" from all classes pertaining to it when I was 12. Y'know those anal retentive English teachers who insist on perfect grammar at all times and talk so pro...

Hey, y'all! I'm from good ol' Tejas - that's Texas, for those who didn't pass Spanish in high school. :P I spent the years of my life that science says are responsible for personality there, so I'm pretty much a Texan through and through. I don't really say "y'all" all that often, though. Just when ...
