thehighbrow is a liberal lass with a partiality for French, literature, English accents of all sorts, alternative rock, and philosophy. She plans on becoming a scientific researcher or following in the footsteps of David Suzuki. If that doesn't work out, she'd like to become a writer for The Simpsons.
In the seething underworld1 of online fandoms, she thrives on Star Wars, Harry Potter, and the revolutionary Queer as Folk. Why are fetishes always centered around fictional characters of questionable morals?
thehighbrow usually goes on mad posting sprees at random occasions throughout the year, and then mellows out the rest of the time (or as mellowed as life will permit her to be). If her journal seems to be inactive, she'll get around to updating soon enough.
1"Seething underworld" is a phrase coined by JKR in this interview to describe her shock upon finding out what HP fanfiction writers and/or slashers are doing to her poor characters.
The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"
