Hello, and welcome, Harry Potter fans!  My name is Irvin, though I'm known around the Internet as "hpboy13."  I got into Harry Potter when I was nine years old, back in 2001, and I've been in the fandom since 2003.  I've been rather prolific in the fandom since then, writing fanfiction and filks and essays, and I am currently a columnist for Mugglenet, spearheading "The Three Broomsticks."  Hailing from New York City, I have also joined the real-life fandom there in the form of The Group That Shall Not Be Named, and have become an avid cosplayer.  I am the leader of the world's first wizard dance troupe, the Dancing Death Eaters.  I played Beater for the NY Badassilisks for 3 and 1/2 years, and I was the organizer of Avada KedavRock! 2012 and 2014, a set of large wizard rock concerts in NYC.

In short, I have a lot of Harry Potter stuff going on in my life, and I needed one place on the Internet where all of it could be centralized, and this site is that place.  You can check out my bio, or click on the links page to explore all my stuff.  Or, here are a few quick links.

  • Here's some of the newest stuff on this site - new things I've written, new costumes I wore, or just some other exciting news!
  • 4/1/16: New HP essay
    The Revised Forty updates the classlist of Harry's year that Jo showed during Harry Potter and Me with her writing in "The Original Forty" to present an up-to-date roster of Harry's year with as much canon information as we have.

  • 1/18/16: New essays, etc.
    I dropped the ball and forgot to update this, but new HP essay about Snape and Dumbledore is up on MuggleNet!  Severus... Please...

    I've also been updating the severely neglected (oops) Bibliography section of the site.  There are lots of new links in the Theatre section, a new Rowling review (Review: Career of Evil), and links to the last two seasons of Dancing with the Stars recaps.  

    I also updated the (very outdated) Links tab with all kinds of good stuff, and updated my Bio for the first time in over three years.  Whew, now that's a good day's work!
