|Hi there! I'm Sammm✦✧! Currently, I'm only relatively active on Harry Potter Wiki, HOWEVER, if you see myself under User Groups with Rights (Bureaucrat, Admin, and Content Moderator) in Wikis you think need help, and see me relatively not active there, please still feel free to message me on said wikis and I'll see what I can do. There're 11 other Wikis out there that I used to be heavily invested in (3 of those I'll just outright admit I was only there to help do cleanups, and don't really have a strong passion for those subject matters;) just because I can no longer find time as I once did to maintain a presence, doesn't mean I've lost interest in those 8 Wikis. =]

|↓ Why I am on this particular Wiki ↓|
|So, no; I actually don't see myself as a fan of The Caster Chronicles series AT ALL; but I admit I find the cover designs (the typography manipulation) pretty strikingly gorgeous, which were what lead me to give the series a go in the first place.
I have NOT finished the main series (done with book 4, in the middle of book 2, and if I EVER manage to finish THAT, I'll then start on book 3; and no, you didn't read it wrong, I just was not interested in reading the first book, so I didn't); I am, however, following the spin-off, and although I find the second book slightly a letdown, I still have high hopes about it overall, which is why I'm still on this wiki.
Wait, but why edit here? Why not just lurk? Here's the thing, the first edit I made was trying to undo a vandal on the main page; it looked like this  for over a month until a user kindly switch it to something  that at least wasn't spam and somewhat related to the wiki, but still wasn't recovered to anywhere close to what it'd once contained; to me, THAT is FAIRLY ALARMING with the fact that no one was around, not even just TRYING TO FIND SOMEONE ELSE to fix it. As you can see, now the main page is back and with updated content cuz I thought it was just too ridiculous and requested a wikia Staff to help out.
The incident above really puzzled me as to how, a wiki that had 1569 people voting on a single poll, no longer HAD ANYONE WILLING TO DO ANYTHING to help this wiki. Like seriously, wth? I'm not complaining and I'm not saying I'm doing all the work (cuz I'm not), but I'm just really confused as to where the actual fans of this series are, or if they even existed anymore. Because... I know for sure I would have been heartbroken had a wiki that was covering a subject I greatly love been left in the state like this one. I would have been outraged to see those speculations without any form of proof, being inserted into article pages as if they were actually canon, when they are in fact, not.
So if YOU read this and felt annoyed with the way I said all this, then perhaps, instead of trying to verbally debate with me, actually DO something and prove me wrong via ACTION. Any wiki can only become better when there are people around it to make it better; right now, I'm really not seeing a whole lot effort happening here.--Sammm✦✧(talk) 22:28, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

Basics about me
Harry Potter (series)
My favorite books are Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
~ I love
~ I like
~ I wish were further explored in canon
~ I dislike, borderline hating
~ I loathe
K, so seeing how I actually listed 2/3 of the trio, aka main characters, and some family members of a certain member of the trio as people I either dislike so much that I feel like I hate them, or I do in fact loathe them; you may wonder why I would list them instead of the people most fans would obviously hold no love.
Book 5 OotP
Multimedia works with manga orgin
My history with them started around my kindergarten time, and for someone that's nearing 30, it's rather impossible to correctly remember everything in chronological order, so the following is in the order of the works' publication date, not in the order of when I personally come across them.
Series and works (everything listed, I've obviously read, so will not make additional notes on the matter)
- ~ I own
- CLAMP学園探偵団［ Clamp School Detectives ］ (3 volumes)
- 魔法騎士レイアース［ Magic Knight Rayearth ］ (3 volumes)
- 魔法騎士レイアース2［ Magic Knight Rayearth 2 ］ (3 volumes)
- カードキャプターさくら［ Cardcaptor Sakura ］ (12 volumes)
- CLOVER (4 volumes)
- ×××HOLiC (19 volumes)
- ~ I previously owned but traded
- 20面相におねがい!!［ Man of Many Faces ］ (2 volumes)
(Now somewhat regretting the decision. It's not because I suddenly realized I do love the books so much, but more because, the newer book covers get worse imo, so I know if I ever want to reobtain the two-book series, I wouldn't like it as much as the original editions.)
- ANGELIC LAYER (5 volumes)
- すき。だからすき［ Suki: A Like Story ］ (⅓ volumes)
(This one was a failed Christmas gift exchange from a friend; I neither requested it nor wanted it, and it was only 1 volume out of the 3 for the series. I read it, and didn't care for it. There's a chance that that 1 volume is in fact still at home somewhere, but I'm treating it as if I've given it away, because if I hadn't done so already, that's what I'd be doing.)
- ~ I wish to own (before I die lmao)
- 東京BABYLON［ Tokyo Babylon ］
(Annoyed because I'm pretty sure I've missed my chance of obtaining the editions I would have liked to own; the newer book covers get worse imo. And since that happened and that I'm not seeing it as a "must", I still don't own it.)

ハイキュー!!［ Haikyu!! ］
I'm pretty sure I've proclaimed this somewhere; problem is I don't remember where, so I might as well add it onto my mass profile lmao. This series, as of now, somewhat topped, if not at least on the same level with, the case I mentioned another section with TB; I'm relatively fond of all the existing versions: the original manga series, the anime adaptation, the live stage-play adaptation, and the companion novels.
It was to my greatest shock because prior to this series, I was very judgmental (still am, in fact) and don't care much for even thinking about giving live stage-plays a try: I have a very unfounded and bias preconception that they look silly and they ought to be crap. That is on me, but is also why I was completely blown away by the authenticity of ハイパープロジェクション演劇 「ハイキュー!!」[HYPER PROJECTION ENGEKI “HAIKYU!!”]. I was and still am bloody impressed. Yes, obviously some tweaks were still made, but that's some true respect shown towards the source material, something somehow were always made excuses for when failing to do so in western adaptations. From stage design and effects to soundtracks, everything, the direction and the actual production were just great.
The following will look slightly out of place; I love wikitext too much, unfortunately, if there's a way to use it on Blogspot blogs, I'm not yet aware of it and am just using this place as documentation. Yes, I'm aware there're Wikia/Fandom wikis dedicated to ハイキュー!!, but I'd rather not join a community knowing I'd not be contributing, it'd just be weird.
P.S.: I'm waiting for 最強の
Other written works
トリニティ・ブラッド［ Trinity Blood ］
This series is as of now the ONE AND ONLY rare case, in which I'm fond of all the existing versions: the original light novels, the manga adaptation, and the anime adaptation. Personally my favorite is the R.O.M. series. BTW, I'm actually still having hopes Hollywood would pick this up lol This series has so much more to offer than half of the other vampire stuff currently on the market!
Yes, I'm aware that unfortunately Sunao Yoshida (吉田直) died before he could finish, what apparently still has a long way to go, but the 6 finished books are solid enough if not touching upon the whole origin of Methuselah.

Love the books, wish there were more, but am happy with what there is. Before you start talking crap about the film, I'll just tell you, I actually like this adaptation way more than how the HP film franchise is handled comparing to its source material; of course it's not exactly the same as the book, but its treatment and alteration is more reasonable and understandable than the... what I called almost-overated film franchise.
- Side-note: Don't get me wrong, I DON'T HATE the HP film adaptations, but I'm certainly not overly fond of it like I probably would have been, had it actually been how EPIC it needed to be.
For Inkheart, I'm just disappointed that the film was so under-appriciated and therefore no sequels.

My former page?
I'm more of a MARVEL girl (no pun intended, I effing have no love for Jean Grey or her daughter) so I got into this shared universe relatively late. I'm still not crazy about Arrow, but am slightly addicted to The Flash.
Articles I'm slightly more invested in
Also known as Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, Miraculous, and formerly LadyBug; take your pick! =P
I'm going to go in a completely fangirl mode and share exactly how and why I think I'm FATED to fall for this series! LMAO. I'm not even kidding. On April 24, 2016, as I was walking home, a ladybug landed just few steps away from my next stride. I now seriously regretted that I didn't take a picture of it; it DID cross my mind at the time, because, well, I honestly don't see ladybugs around everyday like pigeons, but then I personally didn't particularly care for the insect, with the fact that while I did have my portable charger with me, my phone was dead at the time. Wanting to go home ASAP, I just didn't feel like waiting around to charge my phone so I could take the photo, thus I didn't. It still didn't change the fact that the encounter was memorable to me and I had a smile as I walked home.
Two days later, on April 26, 2016, on a basically abandoned Polish wiki I'm only on because I go add interlanguage links, a user joined and made a single edit. Whenever this happens to an abandoned wiki I follow, I'd always check out the user's profile. If they have "favorite wikis" listed, I'd also click to get a sense of their work ethic elsewhere. And that was when it happened. I entered the Polish ML Wiki, and even without understanding anything, the Favicon itself got all my attention; I was like: "Ladybug? What a coincident! I just saw one a few days ago! Wonder what this is about!", though at the time I kind of assume it was for a game in some type because of the design theme, and didn't really think there was high hope for me to actually be interested. Yet, once I click to view the main page, I became completely stunned. My first thought was that, "Is this some new film I again miss out for some reason!!!!???" Like come one! Look at Marinette Dupain-Cheng!!! Her design honestly could have landed her in any major feature film and would have fitted right in!
I immediately went for the English counterpart wiki, and was momentarily tormented when I found out in a few sentences that it was not a film, but a TV series. Call me old fashion and I don't care, but I'm fairly prestigious towards traditional 2D animation, and generally regard 3D productions (for TV! Not feature films) with distaste. At that point I no longer care; it wasn't going to hurt me to watch a few clips to know more about the show. And... Well, I fell in love, and binge-watched the entire first season (26 episodes) in A DAY.
I'd like to elaborate a little more and list my usual "characters I like/love/loathe etc.", but that can wait. I honestly love every episode and can't wait for the next season! On that note, let me just say this, despite the whole "I prefer 2D" thing I told you, I'm honestly HELLA GLAD they didn't end up making the show in 2D anime style like the original proposal. Don't get me wrong, there's still a chance that an anime version could be great, but JUST NOT in the specific style they first showed. I absolutely hate the art style and think it's super fugly. Thank GAWD it didn't happen. Thinking about it still makes me want to puke.
Pasting something I wrote in a comment for episode "Antibug" (because I doubt the said video would last long on YouTube):
I think this episode should have been named "Vanisher and Antibug"; it's ironic how Sabrina is "invisible" in the episode title, not sure if it was intentional :3. This is also the first time this show used an existing superhero/supervillian name from mainstream comics (to my knowledge anyways; I don't read a lot lol) But I'm glad the powers are completely different; the Vanisher I know (mostly featured in X-Men related titles) teleports (himself and others) and "vanishes" xP Sabrina's powers... Is just very Invisible Woman-esque sans the ability to generate force field...
