    It'll be rather embarrassing if I'm overestimating.

    I can't actually remember how I came by DLP, it was a couple of years ago, though I first found HP fanfiction at mugglenet. I was looking for the release date of HBP but I stumbled across 'Harry Potter and the Hero's Lament' and I was hooked.
    Soon after I ran out of the 'longest stories list' on MN and I googled for more HP fanfiction websites, and the rest is history. Mostly because I can't quite remember :facepalm.

    Currently I'm reading HP and the Temporal Beacon, Growing up Black and HP and the Boy Who Lived (pureb99). I'm also reading Eye of the Beholder - but apparently this might be slash in the future, so :?.

    I don't have favourites that I can mention off the top of my head, so they probably aren't favourites anyway.
    It irritates me when people do this~ and /this/. Why? Just why?!

    I'm currently studying for a BSc in Midwifery in Manchester - I followed my friend onto the course because I didn't want to be all alone doing Aeronautical Engineering. I'd really rather be at Monarch doing an apprenticeship than here. I still don't think I have the balls to go for it, but hell, in a few months I might. Figuratively, I mean.

    I'm a woman. I like to run, I hate it when people stare at me - it makes me wonder if my legs have got flabby over night and are jiggling all over the place. I like to dress up and look good. I like Jacksons and Tetley tea.

    Most awful moments... I was about to move in with someone and found blonde hairs in the bath tub, was taking them out so I could have a bath and realised he dyed his hair black, what hair had I just picked up? Aah I ran out of there so fast I might have blurred.

    I'm not delusional, I know neither my spelling nor grammar are perfect. You can whinge about it if you like.

    With that username, my first that was that you were a generously-endowed male...

    Now I don't know what to think.

    I suppose that would have been sort of clever.

    Also, OP, you like to dress up and look good but hate when people stare at you.

    1) There could be any number of explanations. Maybe he was washing a friend's dog? :s

    2) If that's one of your most awful moments despite a career as a midwife, you're getting off lucky.

    I'm in agreement with Seratin. That's really not that bad.

    I like your name though, and you seem pretty decent. Welcome!

    OP: might wanna invest in a sports bra. That should cut down on the staring while running.

    I have several, it's my legs I hate people staring at. We've had a long winter, they're an unsightly shade of white.

    I suppose that depends on their tolerance to gas and air :rolleyes:

    1) You're right, I don't know why I didn't assume that immediately
    2) Not many things in a University class room are that cringe worthy. What classrooms have you been seeing?

    Ah but you see, there's a big difference between being stared at when you're running and feeling self conscious, and being stared at because you're the prettiest person there.
    I'll reign in the narcissism later.

    Thanks for the welcome :)

    Well don't make it sound like a challenge or anything.

    ...and you were doing so well.

    Aside from that, great intro. Friend of mine is a post-grad at Manchester; raves about it. What don't you like about it? And why midwifery?

    Pubes in the tub is no biggy. You'll make a very entertaining midwife if you're squeamish about pubic hair.

    I thought all white Brits were pasty?

    (I keed.)

    How often do you run, and have you done any races (5K, 10K, marathon)? A fair number of us are self-proclaimed fitness gurus, so if you've got any knowledge to drop on us, head on over to the Fitness Thread and share.

    Welcome to DLP.
