Re: Favourite Characters in Fiction

I have a new favourite character, from the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Yes, it is Simon. I haven't the foggiest of why either. He's not born a Shadowhunter (demon killer), he starts out as a mundane in a band which never plays music much, gets turned into a rat, becomes a v...

Re: Week 1-What Brings you Here?

I was chatting with him (James Summers, Slytherin Prefect) the fall of 2003, about having just 'discovered' this series of books, something about a wizard named Harry Potter and he...

Re: **updated** Rules Concerning This Board

*bumpety bump*

Just a reminder that there are rules in here, and even if that post was made ages ago, it's still in effect!

Also, we're cleaning house! Anything which has been here for over four years and no answers or posts on them (unless of historical interest) are being evanescoed.

Perhaps there are even some few who are into Doctor Who and have a poster (or three) which is Whovian based! But what about books? Are there books, which perhaps you haven't read in q...
