Thou marvel’st at my words, but hold thee still. // Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill . . . William Shakespeare — Macbeth — Act 3, Scene 2

Ambition has one heel nailed in well, though she stretches her fingers to touch the heavens ... Lao Tzu

I recognize in thieves, traitors and murderers, in the ruthless and the cunning, a deep beauty — a sunken beauty ... Jean Genet

Because it continues to come up: Yes, I am female. Guilty pleasures include impolite swear words, the rare dirty martini with extra olives, Steampunk, all things gothic, Goth/EBM/Industrial music, and dark clubs. Stealth eldergoth. I appreciate black clothing, black humor, real books, excessive semi-colons, and effective sarcasm. INFJ. Regarding social niceties, I'm uncomplicated: "We be nice to them if they be nice to us." I like words and people. I'm not a programmer, not a "woman in tech," and I don't speak code. Fandom: Harry Potter. I also like Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek: TNG, and SGA. My rep comes exclusively from Harry Potter Q&A, except for a smattering of material from Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. DVK's partner in crime.

Pottermore Sorting - a Slytherin

^ J.K. Rowling, via Pottermore, affirms what I've known since the first time I read Philosopher's Stone: I'm pretty sure I'd be in Slytherin ... Oh, yes, I definitely would be ... And, yes. I'm still bitter about the house cup.

comment Goodbye and godspeed, Keen - and thank you for playing a large part in making this site great
Hear, hear! You have been a SFF mod from the time I joined SE and found the site. I especially appreciate your willingness to stand up for women and women's issues -- as one of the few (comparatively) women on the site, it meant a lot to me. Thank you :)

I, too, remember the joys of the rotary phone! Also, pay phones on every corner, leaded gas, and drive-in movie theaters :D

May I have a philosopher's stone instead of a Precious? I was specifically hoping you would nominate yourself for mod, and here you've gone and done it! Now, back to constituent gifts ... As well as a philosopher's stone, I also accept cash donations and/or Amazon gift cards. Just sayin' :P

I'm so glad you've thrown your hat in the ring. I think you would make a conscientious, thorough, and fair moderator for our site. Argh, it's going to be hard to choose! But you are definitely one of my front runners. :)

comment Why was the old Pottermore shut down?
I don't know that I have screenshots of half the original site, but if anyone wants to look at them, they are located here on Flickr. Related meta question: What is the best way to deal with complicated canon discrepancies when answering. I used Pottermore as my example in this question.

comment Why did Malfoy rip a page from a book in CoS?
@Ellesedil - I agree with what you're saying, and thought it was nice/poignant that Malfoy did receive a certain redemption, but not a redemption that was like a pretty package tied up with a bow. :)

comment Why did Malfoy rip a page from a book in CoS?
@Thomas - Neither Why is Malfoy a jerk? nor Why was Malfoy a jerk is the question being asked here. But it's a great question Hint Hint Nod Nod!
