I've been addicted to Harry Potter since my best friend Imperiused me into reading the the first 4 books when we were roommates. Since then, I was at B&N faithfully at midnight for each subsequent release for the last 3 books. I have to say, I was disappointed by DH - mostly for being the last book in the series *sniffles* but also because of the way Snape got totally shafted in the end. I happened across fan fiction last summer while waiting impatiently for DH and read an amazing fic of Hermione and Snape; the rest is history. I'm a bit of a late bloomer to the good ship HG/SS, but thankfully this site has plenty of amazing authors who write wonderful fiction. With much better endings.
