Author has written 47 stories for Nature, Love, Life, Family, Friendship, General, Work, Haiku, Song, Humor, Romance, and General.

NOTE: You can also find me on fanfiction.net under the usual penname. If you're into Harry Potter, you might like my stories. I have a strange addiction. My poetry can be found at deviantART (still as IrishIleana) as well, and it's framed by some of my fun visual arts projects.

A little bit about me:

Location:

Usually in my own little world. Otherwise, I live in a tiny town in Southwestern Ontario.
Which is a province, not a state, thank you very much.

Favourite Movies:

Sweeney Todd, I Capture the Castle, and Legally Blonde.
Yes, I do have a weakness for Legally Blonde.

Favourite TV Shows:

House, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, The Office, Corner Gas, Ugly Betty, and Friends. I actually don't watch much else.

Favourite Radio Shows:

I used to listen to Tucker and Taz religiously. Now I just don't listen to the radio all that much. Because Regina Spektor is never on it.

Favorite Authors:

Sarra Manning, Terry McGarry, J.K. Rowling, Gregory MacGuire, Jodi Picoult, and all the people who sent postcards to PostSecret.

Books I'm Currently Reading:

In between books right now while I await some new Picoult books from a friend in Texas.

Favorite Music:

Anything and everything. I live and breathe music.
In particular, Regina Spektor, Kate Nash, and Rajaton are high on my list of the greatest musicians ever.

Favorite Songs (or songs that I could listen to forever on a deserted island):

Braille - Regina Spektor
Chemo Limo - Regina Spektor
Birds - Kate Nash
Mouthwash - Kate Nash
Vanishing Act - Rajaton
The Reason - Hoobastank
Champagne Supernova - Oasis
And various others.

Reviews - please leave them.

Honestly, I can always do with a review. Whether you liked it or hated it, I would love to hear your thoughts on what I write. Reviews make an author feel better inside.

I, IrishIleana, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.

I have joined the review revolution.


Return the favour!

For all the authors who leave reviews on my stories/poetry, I will pay them back through their own reviews. I don't mean it as a bribe or anything; I just want to say thanks. You're the ones who keep me writing!

I, IrishIleana, do solemnly swear to review a chapter of any reviewer's story or poem, regardless of . . . well, anything.

I have joined the other review revolution.

Dictionary of Illyisms

A/N: Author’s Note.

Bleddie: Any Harry Potter slash in which Blaise Zabini is paired with Eddie Carmichael. Originating from fanfiction written by WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot.

FP: Final Prophecy; a Harry Potter roleplay website of which I am no longer a member.

Hyposity level: Similar to hyperactivity level in normal terms, the level of hyper I reach in any particular point in time.

Illyism: An expression or phrase utilized by myself or followers of Illy fanfiction.

MB: Muse Bunny; a forum for original fiction, fanfiction, and poetry writers.

Mean Girls Syndrome: The affliction when a plotline--especially a well-written, entertaining plotline--decelerates in a particularly slow manner, so that the story has several places where it could end but just keeps going on in order the fill a certain quota . . . or just because it does.

The Olympics: A writing contest of FP (see above) for which a few stories have been written.

OOH: On the Other Hand; a long-standing and currently inactive (due to personal issues) romance Harry Potter fanfiction. I can’t bring myself to delete it, but I’ve sort of given up on ever finishing it. It went into editing a while ago, and never really came out. Reading it depresses me.

Passions: The greatest show in the history of ever.

QM: Queerest Match; see OOH (ironically, this isn’t a slash story).

Writing Marathon: A writing contest of MB (see above) for which Trembling Game (see ff.net) was written.
