Apparently, I’m evil and cocky. *sinister laugh*

Your result for The Remarkably Thorough Harry Potter Character Test...

Gellert Grindelwald

"Kill me, then. Voldemort, I welcome death! But my death will not bring you what you seek…"

You are Gellert Grindelwald, the darkest wizard before Voldemort’s time. Grindelwald’s history with Dumbledore doesn’t emerge until the very end of the series, but we learn enough about him to know that he is not a good guy. Clever, conceited, and dangerous, Grindelwald longs for a world without Muggles. He sincerely believes that witches and wizards are superior, and because of this distorted perception, his idea of “the greater good” unfortunately translates into evil. Although we don’t have a very clear idea of who Grindelwald is as a person, we see from his and Dumbledore’s exchanges that he is actually quite manipulative. It is Grindelwald who convinces the young, trusting Dumbledore that domination is the only way to deal with Muggles, and eventually, extermination. You are similar to Grindelwald in the sense that both of you believe in many of the same things. Instead of telling someone what you want, you choose to get what you want by means of exploitation and/or passive aggression. One could say that you are the personification of the Imperius curse; you are a silent puppeteer, preferring to stay behind the curtain rather than risk your insidiousness being discovered. You are wise enough to know that it takes a great deal of patience to fulfill your desires, and because of this, you never rush into sticky situations. Unfortunately, your Achilles heel is your cockiness, and at times you sometimes take on more than you can handle. My advice: slow your roll every once in awhile! Your ambitions can wait a day or two for you to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

In short, you are more:

Cautious than impulsive

Mature than immature

Arrogant than modest

Weird than normal

Extroverted than introverted

Your polar opposite is Harry Potter.

I’m not evil. I promise. Well…maybe a little bit evil. I am very ambitious. I quite like this line:

One could say that you are the personification of the Imperius curse; you are a silent puppeteer, preferring to stay behind the curtain rather than risk your insidiousness being discovered.

Again...I’m not evil. Not cocky either. I prefer to think of myself as confident with a knack for hiding my insecurities(I have far too many to let people know).

Thehexfiles and HPFandom Need Help

Thehexfiles need us. Let's give them some help, fandomers! Thanks to dhnightshadow for her post informing myself and others of this situation.

As of today, July 10, 2013, we have 4 ½ months of hosting left. I do not like to say this, but if we are unable to secure funds for the hosting costs, both The Hex Files and HPFandom will be forced to shut down. As it is, we pay the domain registration fees ourselves, but with hosting costing $149.00 per month (we are on a dedicated server) there is no way that we can cover that on our own. It has been suggested in the past that we use advertising, but I cannot in good conscience do that.

I feel I've been slack in asking for donations, however I had a stroke in January 2012 and so my time has been spent focusing on improving my health. Now that I am on track with that, I feel that I need to impress upon everyone how dire the funding situation is at the moment.

Thanks for taking the time and reading.

If we lose these sites we’ll be losing amazing work with them. Please help if you can by making a donation, big or small, they all help. The link above will take you to a page with the donation link ,simply scroll down some and you’ll see it.

I was lucky enough to be glomped last year! sara_holmes wrote me a wonderful fic with Creature!Draco (can't say which creature I don’t want to spoil it) and Protective!Narcissa. She did a wonderful job with my prompt.

Title: Change
Author: sara_holmes
Rating: PG-13
Words: ~7,000
Summary: “Draco meets Harry’s eyes, and Harry has a brief moment to wonder how this suddenly got so serious. All he’d been thinking about this morning was being able to have enough time to get Draco’s shirt off, and now they’d been found out by his mother and were having a standoff in the hallway about their relationship and how dangerous it could potentially be, in more ways than one.”
