Since Tess said it doesn't matter to her, I'm now starting this thread suggesting that people who had introduced themselves a long time before the posts were lost introduce them again here. I think it is fair to the new members, who are required to introduce themselves. Still, I understand if some people see it unnecessary, because our other new posts and our personal profiles somehow show who we are. On the other hand, someone may like to have his or her own introduction thread in order to be welcomed again.

It seems to me that there is such a feature on the Introduction section that a new post on a thread does not bump it to the top of the page. So, unless someone with the power pins (or whatever it is called) this topic, this may turn out to be a dead idea. But I can always try.

Now this is my introduction – a bit longer than my original introduction was.



Hello. I am Eija - PaulaMcG and just like Minerva not exactly young.

I never became even a lousy poet. Instead, I decided to change careers and to study early childhood education. Having just completed those studies I now realize how inspirational they have been – especially when combined with getting involved in the interaction on the Snitch forums.

I became a member because my interest in literature for children had led me to find these fascinating books. The chance to discuss literature with a lot of people was even more thrilling.

My true love is verbal expression. The people on the Snitch have made me more aware of its essence – sharing and interaction. I am ready to share it all – even the protagonist in my fanfiction – with all of you.


Now please do not welcome me – I am at home. Instead, say a few words about yourself!

I'm firefly, I'm a student in the UK, and I too love Harry Potter :P I'm a converted lurker - I stopped lurking after Liliana noticed me reading her fantastic HP and the Secret of Griffindor fanfic, and welcomed me to the story! :D

Hey everybody.

My name is Chrissie. I'm a 21 year old psychology student form the Netherlands, so excuse me if my english is a bit hard to understand sometimes.

My "specialisation" is child psycholgy. I hope to graduate in a year or 2 if things go well.

So I became a member here on march 5th 2003 and have not regreted it for a single moment. The people here are amazing and I've come to care about a lot of them.

Hello all,

I'm Sarah. I'm a 17-year-old girl from Cheltenham, England, currently living in Virginia, US. I uh... I like to talk when you pull me out of my shell that I like so much. So, yes, I'm extremely shy.

I have had a look around the site and from what I can see, I am loving every bit of it. The people seem super nice and willing to be your friend. Don't even get me started on the Mods and Admins, those people are the nicest ones on the internet, let me tell you.

Um, I love Harry Potter. Well duh! If I didn't I wouldn't be here. I also love Lord of the Rings, Bernard Cornwell (excellent author), hanging out with friends, riding horses, playing my instruments, listening to music, and er... a bunch of other things.

I hope to make new friends on this site, so don't hesitate to PM or IM me. =/

Sarah

Haha, just like Eija, my introduction here was much longer than my first one.

LOL, my first introduction was really vague and said just about nothing about me.

I'm Nicole *waves* and I'm 19, just finished my first year at Sarah Lawrence College in NYC, although I'm from New Hampshire, US in life. We don't have majors, but I'm hoping to pursue a career in either technical theatre or art history (professor) after college and some grad school. Erm, let's see. I love HP (duh), Sirius is MINE, I have various obsessions with guys named Hugh (Jackman, Jessiman), Sean (Biggerstaff), Oliver (Wood) and Johnny (Depp). I adore Dan Brown and all his books (The Da Vinci Code), I know a bit too much about The X-Files, and I'm extremely weird (yea, weirdness!)

I've been at the Snitch for just short of a year now, and practically live in the fanfiction section. You can check out my stories there *points to siggie*- last count, there were 33 of them.

So, yeah... *waves*

-Nicole

I don't want you to hurt
I don't want you to sink
But you know what I think? I think you'll be fine
Just hang on and you'll see
But don't make me wait 'til you do to be happy with you
Will you listen to me?
No one can give you courage; no one can thicken your skin
I will not fail so you can be comfortable, Cathy.
I will not lose because you can't win.

I can't even remember my first intro. It was probably very vauge, more than likely, knowing me and everything. Believe it or not, I'm extremely shy at times in the real life, although I may not seem like it online XD

Anywho, I'm Amber and I'm 15. I live in a little town in Louisiana called Zwolle. It's right near Toledo Bend and south 80 miles from Shreveport. I live in the northern part of Louisiana, so no heavy accent you find down there in New Orleans or anything :) I'm going to be in the 10th grade when school starts back up in August and I think I'm one of the shortest girls in my grade. Barely 5'2 and proud to be a hobbit XD I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter. Read all the books, seen all three movies, have pics all over my walls, posters under my bed when I can't find room. Obessed with Dan Radcliffe too along with numerous other actors that include Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, David Wenham, Tobey Maguire, Viggo Mortensen, and many others.

I joined the Snitch in November 2002. Right before the second Harry Potter movie was about to come to theaters. I have loved it ever since. This is my home and I love it and the members to death!

Hi everyone! I'm Carolyn! :D I'm 15 years old, will be 16 soon (Thank the Lord, I don't know how much longer I can wait to get my license). I live in Michigan and am going to enter my Junior year in high school. I LOVE to sing, dance, and am a big-time Thespian, because performing on stage is an AMAZING experience *points to inspirational theatre quote in siggy* :)

I also love to watch hockey and play tennis. Additionally, I can be quite clumsy at times, as I am now wincing in pain because I rammed my leg into the corner of a table on my way to get a tissue *watches bruise begin to form*

I'm getting close to a year on the Snitch, and it's been a great one. I love this place, especially the fanfic section. It's like my second home *huggles it* And, yeah... I think that's about it! :P

Great Idea, Eija...

Entropist, here...
Let's get more specific, since everyone confides in their names and stuff like that.
Alright, I'm Erwan, 25 year old guy from the outskirts of Paris, France.
My main motivation in the snitch is the incredible atmosphere in the discussion and the terrific spirit I found here.
My main hobby is to write stories. I started to do it on Harry Potter, and I found a tremendous welcome from exceptional people here for my writing.
For all the new members, here, I can tell you one thing. You'll just love it in here!

Well, on a more character-like level, Entropist is a term I invented (adapted from Dungeons and Dragons, in fact...) for a Wizard I use in my fictions. What does it mean? Well, it means I'm a very powerful wizard around here. You don't want me as an enemy.
A wave of my hand and walls collapse, a blink of an eye... and I miss one second of image! LOL!
Nothing to serious, of course, but still, I remain the one, the only King of Terrors.
that title came from both a poetry by Edgar Poe, adapted in a tune by SymphonyX.

But not long was I left in doubt. The inquisitorial vengeance had been hurried by my two-fold escape, and there was to be no more dallying with the King of Terrors.
Edgar Allan Poe, The Pit and the Pendulum


I took this title, because, along the wonder ful adventure (now reborn in the fanfiction section) of the Night of The Living Fan Fictions, by Crystalline, I proved to be a scary kind of guy (go ask Eija, if you don't believe me, hehehe)

Well, enough with the mad rambling... Hope you'll be all well on the Snitch...

SEEYA AROUND!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Second Coming of the King of Terrors!

Hmmm...I'm Phoenix Song. More commonly known as PS or Bethy or Beth, and/or baker of great fanfiction cookies.

I've been on the Snitch since...October-ish, I think. I post mainly in off topic and the fanfiction thread, though I have been known to occasionally brave the speculations topics. I am from Minnesota. I'm married and I have a stepchild. I work full time, and play part time. I love to read and write, and I love the Snitch and the comraderie I've found here with the other incredible authors who call this site home.

And...this was shorter than my original intro, which contained a whole lot of nothing. Some member of the Triumvirate of Vebosity am I.

Heh sweet. It's soo interesting to read everyone's intro's even though i know most of you pretty well.

Anyways, here's me.
I'm Véronique, 16, french Canadian from good ol' Québec.
Lovely place. Well the thing says that i joined in june 03 but i'm from way back before that. The snitch messed up and people had to re-sign up.. that's what happend to me.
So, i've finished my last year of high school.. it's quite sad. I'm really into acting. There's not much of anything else that i'm really interested in doing later on.
I love listening to music and going to shows.
I'm not going to list all the bands that i'm into because theres too many.
I adore HP of course.. i wouldn't be here if i didnt.
But i also adore LOTR.
I'm a big fan of orlando bloom, dominic monaghan, joel madden, adam gontier.. just to name a few.

Well i won't rattle on forever. I love this place.. the people here are so nice and always make you feel like you're wanted, they lift you up when you're down on the ground... they're the best.

Well hello there, take two

Im Joanne, or Jo I really don't mind.

Im 20, and I am currently 3/4 way through a 4year Fashion Degree.

I live in England, and have done all my life, on a farm in the midlands.

I think im a fun, easy going kinda person, even if I can be a little quiet at times. There is alot more to me than you will see at first. So take the time to get to know me, I love making new friends.

I stumbled upon Harry potter last summer when I was a bit bored. And then I found the wonder of the Snitch. Since reading HP I have also got into reading lots of other stuff, and I particually love reading Thrillers. But whatever the type of book, once I start reading you will have great dificulity to drag me away from it.

On the Snitch I love to read and write Fan Fiction, and nip into Speculations and the Game room occasionally. It is a great place to be.

A few things I love (apart from HP and books) are my family, and friends, traveling, rock music, dancing, driving, poety, shoes. Well, you get a bit of an idea if you don't allready know me.

Jo :)

I don't understand why Andi didn't pin the topic. Silly Andi. :o you stole my 3rd person.. *higgles*

*waves* Angel says hello. :)

Angel is also a Canadian, but doesn't have the habit of saying 'ay', which is odd because when she was a little tyke that's all she said *nlinks*.
Angel joined Snitchy here *Angel pets Snitch* Just under 2 years ago. She is also part of the Mod Squad *higgles*. Like Vero, Angel's date is wrong as well. Really, Angel joined a year before that date. She still remembers her member number was 42 Heh. She's an odd person.

She was first "hooked" on Harry Potter when she picked up the book, read it and loved it. Fortunately it turned out to be Harry Potter. Since then, she's been a big fan. Reading is one of her favourite pass times, however her piggy bank has been collecting dust, unable to acquire a single cent for the past few years, so she hasn't been able to buy a new book in ages. She's basically new book-deprived.
She plays the piano, flute and likes singing from time to time (especially when no one is around to hear hehe). Her favourite types of music are RnB, Hip Hop, Rap and Soul. On occasion she slips into pop music.

People see Angel as violent, but she's really nice - you just need to get to know her. However, there are those poor souls who cross paths with her when she's in one of her "moods". She's always up for chatting on MSN, Yahoo! or AIM/AOL, so just give her a shout from time to time. She also wants people to know if anyone has any problems, concerns or questions that they feel free to PM her at anytime here on the Snitch.

Angel has written quite a number of fanfictions, however, after the recent incident, all were lost. Fortunately, Angel will begin working on them at the start of summer vacation. So do read them some time, Angel hopes they're enjoyable.

Angel doesn't want to ramble on, so if there's anything else to know, she wants you to feel free to PM her. :)

I'm mainly in the Fan Fiction section, and sometimes will be in the Off Topic and occasionally will venture outside of that safe haven known as the General Section.

I'm a mild-tempered person, but is always up for a chat, so if anyone IMs or PMs me, I'll always respond :)

And I, like everyone else, has written an intro much longer than the previous one I had written when I first joined.

Yay, you posted this thread, Eija.

It's so interesting to read everyone's intros - I've learned so much about all you great people!

Firefly - so glad I "dragged" you into the Snitch, LOL.


I'm Maria Daniella Liliana (yes, you're right, my mother couldn't make up her mind on what to name me), and I'm 19. I've been in love with Harry Potter ever since my brother dumped the books into my lap. It was love at first sight. Hehe. I think I stumbled upon the Great Snitch accidentally, while I was looking for any new news on Harry Potter. It was fate. *nids* I've found so many real friends here (*waves to all her buds*), and I can truly say the Snitch is the most welcoming, fun, and "homey" sites I've ever come across.

I'm majoring in Foreign Affairs and I go to college at the University of Maryland, College Park, which I love. GO TERPS! Writing is my sanctuary, so I write all kinds of fiction, poetry, and fanfiction. Thus, I stalk the Fanfiction forum constantly (*points to siggy* duh, lol), and also like to walk around the Off-Topic and Book forums. Love all the debates, hehe. Though I'm not brave enough to venture into the Ships threads. No way....

Besides writing, I love to read (from Ayn Rand to Joyce Carol Oates), play piano, watch films (specifically black and white ones), paint, I have a variety of tastes in music (from Led Zeppelin to Bach), play and watch soccer, I do modern dance, and am involved in a dearth of community programs to help disadvantaged kids.

So, yes that's my intro. Gah, ramble much, do I? :)

Hiya. I'm Micki, a harry-potter-o-phile, manga addict, foodie and soon to be graduate student in european and african history. I'm almost 30 (omg) but most days I feel 8 years old; on really bad days I can act like a belligerent 2 year old! I honestly can't remember how I got here but I washed up on the snitch during the OotP wave last summer. I really like it here, snitchers tend to be really nice and welcoming. I'm a bit of a lurker but have come out of my shell a bit more lately.

Hey folks. I'm Eric Sweet, aka: Sweetman. I'm 32 and I'm from Kansas. I have been married now for 10 years and have two boys, 8 and 5. Do the math - I was a good kid...

I came to the Snitch through a Google search of all things. I was looking for some HP Fan Fiction and found it. That was last summer when all the other "newbies" showed up. I haven't left since. I came to be entertained and possibly talk a bit about HP. What I got was membership in a community and some honest friends.

I will always remember the time I spent on the Snitch fondly. I hope to be here for quite a long time, but if I don't I will know that I have friends all over the world with at least one thing in common... the love of Harry Potter and his universe.

I'm steve, well not really its just a nickname my friends gave me because they thought I looked like a Steve, my real name is Ian. I've been with the snitch off and on for a while, I first joined so long ago I can remember Sean Biggerstaff having his own section.

I'm only 16 but I feel more mature than my age. I try to be witty and lighten the mood with a joke or pun every now and then but usually it isn't funny seeing as I enjoy bad jokes. I think of myself as a philosopher, I'm always thinking thoughts that need to be thunk, like why do golf commentators whisper even though they're in a booth miles away from the golfer. I like things that make you think. I also enjoy movies, good movies, one's with deep characters and a plot, not some special effects monstrosity.

I started reading Harry Potter when I had to do a book report in sixth grade and I've been hooked ever since. Harry Potter along with Captain Underpants are the reasons I read today. I feel like ranting now so I'm going to the Off-Topic section

Hi! My name's Erin (please feel free to call me that), and I'm 19 and from Australia. I'm currently two and a half years through a four year degree in speech pathology (same thing as speech therapy or speech language pathology in case you were wondering :P ). I love it, it's awesome. I enjoy Harry Potter (obviously, or I wouldn't be here!). I've been here nearly a year I think... I enjoy music, reading, doing stuff with friends...I don't overly enjoy talking about myself, so this will be quite short compared to some. Please PM me if you want to talk, I love getting to know people!

Wow, this is a great thread! It's like a family reunion :) *points around* I know you. . .and you. . .and you, but not you :D j/k


OK about me. . .hmmm nothing interesting about me. My name is Johanna, but everyone calls me Hanna. . .or Hanna Banana. . .or Bob (thanks Lils!). Recently became quarter of a century old. (25 for those who don't want to do the math :) ) I am from Louisiana. *waves to Nanny Tonks and Lil'Washu*

Four years ago, I had no clue who Harry Potter was and could care less.*GASP* Now after watching the movies and reading the books several times over, I can truly say, I frighten family members with my obsession. I've even converted a co-worker and she's happy with her conversion. I just started posting fanfics for some weird reason :P . I suppose it's just the next step in my unapologetic obsession.

This is WAY longer than my intro from months ago, but so what? If family isn't willing to listen to your pointless ramblings, who is?

*steals a cookie from Bethy* Yum, thanks! *waves to Snitchers* See you guys around the house!

I think of myself as a philosopher, I'm always thinking thoughts that need to be thunk, like why do golf commentators whisper even though they're in a booth miles away from the golfer.

LMAO! Steve, I've always wondered that very same thing. Honestly.

Well done for putting that question out into the public consciousness.

I was pretty new to the forums when 'the hack' occurred, but decided to re-introduce myself here rather than start a new thread. Part of that conflict in being a bit shy and self-deprecating while being a fat-head Leo.
My name is Mary Beth. MaryMcBeth, alas, refers to McDonald's rather than Shakespeare. I'm 38 and looking forward to 40. I think that will mean I am officially old and can become as weird as my wonderful mother.
Many forums I've joined include a lot of arguing, name-calling, and very narrow-minded thinking. What I love about HP sites is that most of the conversation is either seriously thoughtful or rediculously funny. People are warm, helpful, and polite. I came here hoping to be impressed and I sure have been!
You're all so wonderful that I'm over my internet limit every month and it's almost getting expensive enough to justify switching to broadband. I've even been inspired to start writing down the fanfics that have been rolling around in my head for a couple years.
I am a writer by hobby, a mother by choice, and voluntarily run a preschool due to arm-twisting.

People see Angel as violent, but she's really nice - you just need to get to know her. However, there are those poor souls who cross paths with her when she's in one of her "moods".

Aren't you always in one of your 'moods'? *looks at Angel* Kirsty/Kristy is still probably scared of you...[and I still can't remember their name]

Opps edited that dear Angel, lol Andi doesn't think right AT ALL when she is sick... :P [you know the third/first person, I hate to think when sick...]

voluntarily run a preschool due to arm-twisting.


wow me too.  well i am a preschool teacher by trade, but currently running the daycare at the plasma center.

Hey guys and gals, Brandi here, or B, or reed, whatever, sometimes i even go by 'hey you' (on account that i always forget my nametag at work!) anyway i've been on the snitch for almost a year now. tho i had been inactive for around a month or so before the "hack" occured. all i knew was that i went to try to log on and i couldnt. so it was just today that i found out what happened. *cant believe someone would do that to this forum!*
anyway, im 24 (still clinging to the 4 tho i will be joining the others who are a quarter of a century old next month ----dont want to think about it!) and i love HP - the books, the movies, the conversations...this is the main reason why i was so drawn to the snitch last summer. someone around here always had a great theory about why or how something happened to harry or around hogwarts in general.
anyway, i'm an east coaster - NC to be exact.
just wanted to say hello, and get reacquainted with some of you arround here, seeing as i had been lax on checking in for so long. feel free to drop me a line, or AIM me if you get the chance.
*heres to getting the snitch up and running again, and to catching those responsible for its previous demise.*

Howdy! I'm Sue! *Sue stands up and waves*

*Hear the croud respond "Hi Sue"*

Hah anyways, my first introduction was probably longer than this one will be. I had been a member for a little while before the hacker, and I love it here. All you guys are so cool :lol:

Anyways, I'm 14, but I'll be 15 .. tomarrow *gasp* So I think it is safe to say I am 15 :P And I will be going in to my sophmore year. I live in good ol' Wisconsin in the good ole U S of A. If my plans go right, I will be majoring in Psycology, I'm not sure what branch yet though ... maybe child. I want to minor in Philosophy too, and have some band on the side(go flute and piccolo, wee! and maybe some alto and bass flute if I can pull it off. wow I'm a loser)

I also love to dance, sing, write, read, be lazy, eat ... etc. :P

Oh, and I love Harry Potter *huggles Harry*

Well thats a lil about me! :)

His name was Princess Kristy. I shall never forget the first time I saw Angel in action. Of course, she would tell me what she was doing when she would PM a member who flamed her. But to see something like that! Wow...

I must say, from this thread I have learned a few new things about you all. Like, I wasn't here for some of your intros. Like Amber's and Vero's. LoL And then with some intros I just plain forgot! LOL

suzapalooza, I'm from Wisconsin originally, too. I live in England now. How's that for a switch! There's almost no snow here, but no mosquitos either! :lol:
