But I really want to find Cassandra Clare's old fan fiction, since she wrote a long time ago a fan fiction for HP that was really popular, and now I can't find it.

NO FREAKIN WAY!!! I bet it got pulled when she signed her book deal. A lot of publishers don't want independent work floating around, they figure they can make money off it when the author becomes famous... I would love to find that myself, though. If you DO happen to find it out there somewhere, you'll have to let me know!!

Oh I know how you feel my parents thought when I was kid I was bad with movies either VHS or DVDs since I own I can say almost every single disney movie ever. Now they are notice that I doing the same thing but with books. So I might have to spend a couple of months without book buying ( wait not next month the new Luxe book is going to come out?!)

Okay I got this on Wiki about Cassandra Clare's fan fiction history.
"Prior to the publishing of City of Bones, Clare was known for writing fan fiction under the similar pseudonym Cassandra Claire. Her main works were The Draco Trilogy (Harry Potter) and The Very Secret Diaries (The Lord of the Rings). Claire was considered a Big Name Fan[2] and was covered in several newspaper articles about fan fiction: The Draco Trilogy was described by The Times as a "gem of such superlative quality that it enhances one's appreciation of the [Harry Potter series]"[3] and The Daily Telegraph called The Very Secret Diaries a "cult classic" "

I pay money to read her fan fiction, she just so good. I sadly don't like the LOTR series, I read them in middle school, and didn't like them for some reason.

Found a summary of some sort of the fiction, and it sound awesome. I always have a thing for Draco and Hermione I love you
"The Draco Trilogy was a Draco-centric epic[1] that consisted of three novel-length stories written by Cassandra Claire. The series began with an accident in potion class where Harry and Draco bodyswapped after drinking a botched Polyjuice potion. The need to keep this a secret, the even greater need to find an antidote, and a love triangle where both Draco and Harry were interested in Hermione, powered the plot of the first novel, Draco Dormiens. By the end of the series, the resolution of the romantic entanglements confirmed the pairings Draco/Ginny and Harry/Hermione. Although the Draco Trilogy started as het, it was unusual in that it included plenty of intentional Harry/Draco subtext that straddled the divide between slash and het in the last part, Draco Veritas, even if the story never crossed that line."

OH
MY
LORD

I love love love love love love love these books.

The Hobbit, The Trilogy, The Silmarillion, and all the extra Middle Earth books, they're freaking amazing. I mean not only did JRR Tolkien create a story, but he created an entire WORLD and a couple of entire LANGUAGES! I mean, FREAKIN LANGUAGES! That are complete, you can actually learn all three kinds of Elvish! (and yes, I'm enough of a Lord of the Rings geek to know all three versions... Tengwar, Sindarin, and Quenya... hahaha)

The stories are literally EPIC and the characters are just amazing!

Got two new books from the library, The Picture Of Dorain Gray and East Of Eden. Still reading 2666, I actually was reading it today, but again I fell asleep, since I still had my cold, even if I almost 70% better than I was in the last couple of days. But this book relax me too much...
