I'm 34, a Customer Manager at a British bank. Born in Rome, I moved to England in 2004. I'm now planning to move to Ireland sometimes in the future.
I like computers and the internet (I can build a computer from scratch), but I'm more of a creative person than a tech. I love myths and legends, and reading about religion. I love reading in general; my fave authors are M. Ende, M.Z.Bradley, J.M.Auel, P. Pullman, J. Stroud and J.K.Rowling. I love even the classics of course (like Tolstoj, Verga, Kafka, Svevo, DCalvino, Shakespeare, Pirandello, Austen, the Brontë's sisters, Yoshikawa, Verne, Yoshimoto, Flaubert, Dumas, Sartre). I also like many poets (like Baudelaire, Ungaretti, Leopardi).
I love to read Japanese manga, and watch anime. My fave authors are M. Adachi (Touch, Rough, H2...) and R. Takahashi (Uruseiyatsura, Ranma ½, Maison Ikkoku, Inuyasha...), but I also love N. Watsuki (Rurouni Kenshin!), F. Souryou (Mars...), Y. Watase (Fushigi Yuugi, Ayashi no Ceres...), G. Aoyama (Detective Conan), R. Ikeda (Versailles no Bara, aka Lady Oscar...) and others. I love classics as well, like O. Tetsuka (Leo, The three Adolf, Astroboy, Ribbon no Kishi, Black Jack...) and all great authors whose stories teach you something.
I like full rounded characters: for example, Kagura from the manga, "Inuyasha". She was evil; she would destroy a whole city without minding it. But she was also a rebel, wanted her freedom, and helped the heros against her own Master. She also fancied one of the not-so-good-but-not-so-bad-either characters of the story.
I dislike the two-dimensional, flat baddies, like canon!Draco. I'm not talking about him being "redeemable". I'm talking about him being useless, two-dimensional, good only to smirk at Harry once, sing a childish song against Ron, and tell Harry that he's dead.
I'm not a fan of fanon!Draco: I dislike the perfect-sex-God!Draco, the flat-evil!Draco, or the redeemed-Potter!Draco. I absolutely HATE redeemed-and-filled-with-remorse-for-being-a-monster!Draco. I like the fanon!Draco who's a full rounded character; evil or redeemed I don't care, but with a personality.
You might have wondered about that, so I shall say it: I love writing and have written all my life. I'm trying to be published. Right now, I have the complete first draft of an original novel for children of 9-12 years old, and I'm revising it before trying to send it to literary agents. I wrote my first "novel" when I was 12.
Oh God, look at how much have I blabbed about myself! Here's my summary card :D so if you're lazy, you can just go and read it:
