I can't believe it! Time has passed so fast! Yesterday Sectus started and tonight is the release of DH, I'm bouncing of excitation^^|
My friends has left already to arrange our costumes for tonight, and I tyding up my room, but before go to Sectus I wanted to post this, even if it's a bit late.
Are you a writer, artist, or reader/viewer? (Or all of the above? Or something else?): Well, In my own language I’m a lazy writer, XDDD Really, I always have plots to write but I spend a lot of time doing nothing in the net or reading fics. Sometimes I draw a bit, but it isn’t my thing, and I have a lot of friends that are pretty good artist so it’s better if I only write. In English however, I’m more a lurker, I read a lot, I join all the Harry/Draco communities, and sometimes I post some comment on my favourite fics, but that’s all. Hopefully in few weeks or months I’ll start to write something in English...
If you are a writer or artist, provide a link to one of your Harry/Draco themed works: Eehhh… You can go to my journal and search the tag “my fics” and “arts”, and I also have some of my fics in www.fanfiction.net and www.slasheaven.com in the authors directory I’m listed as Duare.
What are some of your favorite Harry/Draco fics or authors? Depends of the day. If I have a bad day I will go to some of the lovely and funny Jennavere fics, if I need something hot and kink Calanthe is my poison. Something intense is what Lightning on the wave writes. And then I also love Emma Grant, Mijan (and I know that both of them are going to be at Sectus, so you can all figures how happy I’m am about that^^), Charlote Caos, geoviki, Samayel, Silente auror, Furiosity, Constant vigilance, CDumbledore, and a lot of more authors that are really great.
What are some of your favorite pieces of Harry/Draco art or artists? Mmmm… Duckpuppy, red_hal, lizard and sherant were some of my first contact with the English artist fandom. Then I discovered hp_art_dayly and well, I fell in love with a lot of artist, some of they not Harry/Draco but id the characters are good I really don’t mind in they don’t draw H/D, like Calladan or ___</o:p>
Why does Harry/Draco appeal to you?: I’ve always loved the slash on comics, books, films, etc. So when I read the HP books it was obvious that I will pick some slash pairing and well since Harry is the main character he was my first option, but whit who he will be paired? Not Ron, I really don’t like the best-friend-becomes-boyfriend relationship, and the adult/child relationships give me itches. But then there was Draco, blond, obnoxious, supposedly evil, the antagonism of the hero. And he has so many possibilities… If Harry Potter books were adult books I think that we would have a very different Draco, fuller of different aspects, more complete. He’s the archetypal antagonist that is evil at first, but it’s not really his fault but it’s what he knows and with time he will change his ideas. So I fell in love with them. Where Harry is dark, Draco is light, and where Harry is light, Draco is dark. They are opposites and at the same time they are so alike…
And well, if one gorgeous boy is great, two are better^^
When or how did you first become interested in Harry/Draco?: Mmmmm… When I started to read the HP books and to look on internet for fics I crossed with a web with a lot of fanfictions translated into Spanish, it was called “El dormitorio de Gryffindor” (the Gryffindor’s bedroom) and was dedicated to the pairing Harry/Draco. The main fic of all the archive was the marvellous Irresistible Poison by Rhyssen, and that was the beginning of all.
Tell us some of your non-fandom interests, hobbies, or activities
I like to read and write non fandom stories, but I have so little time and I’m so lazy… I love cinema, maybe I don’t go to cinema to watch movies all that usually, but I have a lot of films at my home in Barcelona (really, about 200 or more XDDD My mother and I are really fanatical about cinema, especially old movies). I enjoy comics and manga, I think that I read my first manga with 12 years old. I have a little (and not legal^^) company with some friend of mine morgana_avallon of budgets, postcards, calendars, bookmarks, etc. 11varas All hand made, and some with HP images. I have an honour degree in environmental science, I just finished it in February and since then I’ve been in London, working and practicing English meanwhile I wait to start a master next course in Barcelona. I am also planning in study history, it’s really my real vocations, my real passion. I love ancient and medieval history (and I spend a lot of time thinking about magic on those times). I’m a very active person, I can’t stay without do a lot o plans and projects, like editing a yaoi/slash fanzine about Harry Potter for the next Salón del Manga (a manga convention that every year is hosted in Hospitalet del LLobregat, just next my city). And finally, I love to travel, I spend all my paid to go to other countries and cities, the last trip before come to London, was to Prague, so beautiful.
Well, that’s all.
See you all later^^
Today I'm going to be the Ravenclaw girl with a Harry/Draco t-shirt (no the "official", just one that I made years ago with an art of Giro, a Catalan artist)
