So, I'm probably around 90% retired from Q&A, but I still check in from time to time. I am proud to be the first member of this site to win a gold tag badge in Harry Potter. As well, I am proud to have found myself in the top ten of site users for all these many years. I am grateful for the many friendships I've found here. It makes me smile to see newer users nipping at my heels - one must pass the baton! Yes, I am female. I like impolite swear words, the rare dirty martini with extra olives, Steampunk, all things gothic, Goth/EBM/Industrial music, and dark, smoky clubs. Stealth eldergoth. I appreciate black clothing, black humor, real books, and effective sarcasm. INFJ, if you're into that sort of thing. Regarding social niceties, I'm pretty uncomplicated: "We be nice to them if they be nice to us." I like words and people. Fandoms: My rep comes almost exclusively from Harry Potter; I have also earned a smattering of points from Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. I'm DVK-on-Ahch-To's partner in crime. Now pictures!

^ 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.
