Ask the marauders
Hello, welcome to "Ask the Marauders", where you can ask Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, Prongs (and Co.) anything your heart desires. And I mean anything.
See user info for whole list of characters, as well as more information.
So, pose a question in the comments, sit back, and watch the
Note: Sirius and Remus are probably going to be the most active members of this community. And sooner or later, slight slashiness may ensue. For now, they're clueless.
You do realize that you just asked my least favorite question, right? It also seems to be the most popular. Right. In all honesty, it's impossible for me to narrow my choices down. However, I will concede that Shakespeare is brilliant, and if I'm in the mood for a more melancholy piece, then Poe will do.
My complete list of "favorite books" would hardly fit here, though.
And for that, I will be teased horribly.
I like my books like I like my women.
The true measure of a book's worth is how evenly it's balanced, and whether or not it can be latched shut. An evenly balanced book makes a much more accurate projectile, and should said literary volume open in mid-air, all is lost.
That said, I wouldn't throw the following books at anyone whose forehead might leave a huge, smelly grease stain on them:
1984, Lord of the Flies, Dubliners, Hemmingway's stuff, and most importantly ... Green Eggs and Ham (fucking GENIUS).
I like anything that has that distinctive old book smell because for some reason new books make me nausious. I don't get it either, but it's the truth. Currently my favourite old books are Fahrenheit 451 and Under Milk Wood.
I also have a severe weakness for the Hornblower saga and cookies, but don't you dare tell Potter that.
And sirius lies, I've seen him secretly curled up with Tolstoy and Checkov from time to time.

You fucker. I didn't go ratting out your extensive collection of Buff and Brawny Beaters now did I?!
Ok, well I suppose I have now, but you deserve it for that.
Mostly comics, I'm not sure if they're books or not, but I think we get enough of those in class, so I'm not really eager to get more for "fun"
Hamlet has to be the greatest story ever told. And poor Ophelia...
Don't listen to Remus, he's in denial. He'll talk about a book for an hour if you have enough questions.
