Hi there!

First of all my name is Mariam, i am a 19 year old girl who spends way more time reading fanfiction than she should. I live in Egypt, I am in med school and my first language is Arabic, but i am fairly good in English - or so i imagine myself to be.

My favorite pastime is obviously reading though i love to write as well.

My fatal flaw is not Hubris, it's my obsession. Once i get hooked on something i obsess about it to an extreme point until i find something else to preoccupy me.


My favorite book series:

Harry potter series.

The inheritance cycle.

Percy Jackson.

Lord of the rings.

Riyria chronicles.

And many more...

I also love Star wars and Supernatural the TV show.

My favorite types of fanfiction:

Time/ dimension travel.

Most AUs.

Memory loss.

I love the fics that explore the characters emotions, objectives and relationships with others.

I love father/son relationships and bromance. I don't hate romance exactly but i think that very few people actually know how to write it smoothly.

What i hate in fanfictions:

Mary sues, i can't stress how much i hate this. It drives me absolutely crazy.

OOCness, unless it's an Au, and the character's changed personality can be attributed to his different background and past.

Over powered heroes. This trope is especially over used in Hp fandom, i don't hate it when it's used in regulation, when harry is smarter or more powerful due to some circumstance or the other, he is after all the "Chosen One".

But i just hate it when you start reading a fic and it has an exposition in the beginning detailing all these awesome amazing stuff that harry had "accomplished". I mean i don't even see the progression, suddenly i have to accept that harry is an all powerful being with a pheonix animagus or whatever, without any real reason behind it.

Character bashing: it's alright to hate a character, and to offer motives and backgrounds to them, that might shed them in an unfavorable light. But i hate it when it's overly OOc, or when it's just used as an excuse to vent about the author's least favorite character, Or when it doesn't really add any depth or value to the story, or when it's just a way to remove a character from the story without killing him. Simply put, i hate Bashing for the sake of bashing.

My current Obsession is Star wars, And my favorite character is Obi-Wan kenobi.


Here are some of my favorite quotes

I've turned my life around. I used to be depressed and miserable. Now I'm miserable and depressed.

If you wish to live wisely, ignore sayings including this one.

When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is 'never try'.

Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

I’d like to help you out. Which way did you come in?

I am in my own little world but it's okay they know me here.

"Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege

"If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven’t used enough"
