Hello there. I'm bathtubblogger or Kiley (Kiles).
Here are 10 essential things to know about me in order to survive.
1) Currently my favorite musicians are the bands/singers: Muse, The Script, Coldplay, Gotye, and Adele.
2) My favorite pairing is Draco/Ginny.
3) I'm a 17 year old girl who loves reading. I do not live in Iowa. I am extraordinarily lazy and unorganized.
4) My favorite color is blue, especially navy and cobalt.
5) I adore music. I listen to all kinds, from classical to rap, but everything I listen to has the weird coincidence of being incredibly good.
6) When I grow up, I want to be involved in the science field. I'm fascinated by biochemistry and neuroscience. If he wasn't so old, I wouldn't hesitate to marry Oliver Sacks. Actually, now that I think about it, if I were of legal age I'd marry him no matter how old he was.
7) Johnny Depp is mine. He just hasn't realized it yet. (Edit: Now that the tabloids are blowing up with rumors about his separation from his long-time GF, I feel kind of bad for writing this. They always seemed so sweet to me! I hate when celebs who have been dating for a long time break up.)
8) I play soccer (central defense), and I love Messi. If you do not know who he is, I highly suggest reading up before talking to me. I am also assistant coaching for the craziest group of nine year old girls ever.
9) I also dance (thirteenth year!), and it is one of my passions besides writing. I've been focusing on contemporary ballet, but sometimes I venture into modern or jazz or back into classical ballet. I desperately wish I could tap dance, but after thirteen years of trying I've reconciled myself to the fact that I will never be a tap dancer.
10) Since I like to believe I am a very warm and open person, feel free to PM me about anything. World Cup videos, book recs, songs. Just no death threats, please.
(Draco/Ginny will always hold my heart, but I am willing to read anything. If you have a fic rec, see number 10.)
I AM A PROUD MEMBER OF:
The DG Forum!, Harry Potter Fanfiction Challenges forum, Bellatrix Lestrange: The Dark Lord's Most Faithful forum, and I'm an honorary Slytherin over at The Slytherin Corner.

I am a member of the noble house of Gryffindor, as sorted by the Sorting Queen Leigh and her assistant Ky over at the The DG Forum.
My wand, as given to me by Mandie from Malivander's Wand Shop at The DG Forum:
For Kiles, unsorted. (Ahem, now I'm in Gryffindor. Just saying.)
Flexibility: Springy, Core: Snidget Feather, Wood: Birch, Length: 14"
Can I just say this entire submission gave me quite the giggle? Very entertaining. Anyway, here again I first believed our darling Kiley here would be an Ivy wood going along with her birth date on the celtic wood chart, 14" in length, a Phoenix core, and a sturdy flexibility. I then looked up the definition of Ivy on the celtic chart. Absolutely not our dear Kiles here. I then reevaluated. Kiley is meant for Potions, no? So why not an extremely rare core? A Snidget Feather which are great for dueling, charm work and potions. I had to apparate all the way to Durmstrang just to collect it! Anyway, I decided the length was just right. I kept it at 14" inches exactly. The wood gave me quite the trouble. I wasn't sure what would suit Kiles best, until I stumbled across the meaning of Birch wood. (Youthful, Renewal, Beginning.) How much better could I have found it? I immediately found one of my best Birch carved wands, with a rather intriguing pattern of swirls carved into it. I finally came back to the flexibility issue. Should I have stayed with sturdy? Of course not! I changed the flex of Kiles' wand to springy, for a good balance with her rare and powerful core.
