I'm very excited to find a HP group here in DC -- thanks to in_a_tizzy
! :) My name is Abbie, and I'm 31-year-old mommy/grad student living in McLean, VA. I'm originally from Silver Spring, MD, but I flitted in and out of Boston for a while before settling back in this area. I've got an eight-month-old daughter named Meghan, and I currently stay home with her. Taking care of her is the most demanding job I've ever had (no crazy boss can compare to a very stubborn infant, although some may come close!), but I love it. I'm also working on finishing up my master's (from Boston University) in international relations and communication, but by "working on finishing up," I mean guilt tripping myself every day that I haven't written that last paper and thesis yet. And then I go rescue Meghan from her latest adventure in climbing on furniture and remember why everything is still on hold.
Anyway, here's the more condensed version of me: RL name:
AbbieLJ name: miss_sophiaAge: 31How did you come to live in DC? (Are you a student? Have you always lived here? Are you new to the area?):
I grew up in the DC area (Montgomery Blair High School '94).Who is your favorite character?
SiriusWhat's your favorite pairing?
I'm actually more of a crack!fic and genfic person (alternative points of view, missing moments, that sort of thing), so it's hard to say. I used to be into Remus/Sirius, but not so much anymore. I'm happy with the canon pairings, so maybe I'll just go with James/Lily, because I'm also a Marauders-generation gal. And I do have a bit of a soft spot for Sirius/Rosmerta.What's your favorite book in the series?
PoA. OotP is a close second, though.How long have you been in the fandom:
A little over 3 years
If you went to Lumos, you might have seen me gallivanting about as Hermione -- a performance that shall be repeated at LeakyCon and Azkatraz. I also write fic (although it's been a while; I intend to do a reread of the entire series within the next couple of months so I can get back to it), mod and RP at hogwarts_hocus
, and recc crack!fic
Looking forward to getting to know y'all! :)
