Just to clarify, this one is NOT MINE, taken almost directly from "A Very Potter Musical":
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Three 17-year-olds search for horcruxes hidden somewhere around the mundane British countryside; their search contains months of depressing camping, breaking into Gringotts and the Ministry of Magic and drinking boatloads of Polyjuice Potion.
Just wanted to post that because I think it's hilarious.
This one's mine:
Alice's adventures in wonderland: A curious girl falls down a rabbit hole and meets a variety of dreamlike crazy characters including the Mad Hatter, who is stuck in a neverending tea time, and the Queen of Hearts, who chops off the head of anyone who so much as sneezes at her.
Imagination is the one weapon in the war against reality.
-Jules de Gaultier
Humans have not always been the superior race to walk this Earth...

I have a Gumbie Cat in mind, her name is Jennyanydots; Her coat is one of the tabby kind,with tiger stripes and leopard spots.
