Don't worry, you're not alone. I've considered myself to be a hobbit ever since Dad first read the book to us. I can identify with them a whole lot easier then I can with just about anyone else in any other book I've read. My absolute favorite part of the first chapter would have to be The 'That's w...

Yoda is indeed fantastic. I think I liked him better in the prequels, when he has the repulsor lift chair and is all cool and Tigger-ish. Slightly off topic, but I found one of the funniest Yoda avatars ever, involving a quip from the new Doctor Who. Anyone interested in seeing or using it, feel fre...

I'd have to say that Luke is still my alltime favorite, but young Obi comes reeeeally close to stealing that away from him. Lando Calrissian is also hugely cool, he's about tied with Han and Leia for second place.

Ah, delightful. The two series that I'm currently trying to collect are Fruits Basket and From Far Away. Once I'm done with those, I'll probably look into getting some Cowboy Bebop. I know there were some others I had my eye on, but I've forgotten what they're called.

If one is going to enjoy Shakespeare, it helps to be able to translate it from the slang of the times to modern day meanings. Like that bit in the first scene with Gregory and Sampson, it's mostly Gregory cleverly insulting Sampson and them talking about [censored by McNish]. He's very bawdy if you ...

I was a little strange when I was a kid. All I listened to was Classical and Golden Oldies/Classic Rock. They were the only kinds of music my parents could agree on, and they still had very different tastes as far as the stuff from their generation was concerned. Dad was the Cream and The Who sort, ...

As of this moment, my randomized playlist is playing Danny Kaye's "I'll Take You Dreaming" from the soundtrack of The Court Jester. Correction, that just ended and has switched to "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins.

Well it's not a book, but I do remember a Harry Potter being mentioned in one of the early episodes of Angel. It was at the start of the Fred/Pylea thing, where Lorne was mistaken for a children's reading time volunteer.

At the risk of sounding like an echo, Scrabble is one of my favorites too. I have to play it with my Mom every time I go to visit, since my middle brother won't play it with her without a third person and no one else wants to get smashed by the two of them. Luckily, I don't mind losing every time. /...

My story is rather silly. I was one of the more voracious readers in my highschool. Knowing this, my journalism teacher asked me to do an article for our school paper on how the recent publication of Sorceror's Stone had led to an increase in the number of parents reading bedtime stories to their ch...

Hey there! I'm Brenna, OOCly a 23 year old Texan. I'm a Hufflepuff at heart (though every sorting hat has put me into Gryffindor, so I guess I'll take the hint), a huge fan of Jane Austen and Tolkien, and amuse myself with the SCA when I have the time and money to spare. When not online or working, ...

I honestly can't remember why I chose Brenna Delaney over all other possibilities. She's been my HP character for years, ever since I realized my Melody Twins were horribly Mary Sue-ish. All I did was go through the appropriate lists on Babycenter.com's Babynamer until I found something with the bes...
