Aziantearz (she/her): Art, Production, and Shipping Mod
twitter, carrdBio: I’m a mama of twin girls, and I love to draw fanart and write fanfiction for fun. I run a small etsy shop selling stickers, charms and enamel pins. It's been a dream to see a Dramione fanzine and I'm so estatic to be able to join the team and project!Favourite thing about Dramione: They are complete opposites, yet they compliment each other in ways that Hermione is the light in Draco's dark world. I also really love the enemy-to-lovers trope.Zine/Fandom Events: Letters from the Sky: A Zack & Aerith Fanzine: Finance/Production Mod, Apricity: A Thomayaka Fanzine: Art & Production Mod, Zutara Wedding Zine: Shipping Mod, Other experience: https://aziantearz.carrd.co/#fanzines
Erin Clements (she/her): General and Social Media Mod
twitter, instagramBio: I'm 25, from Ohio, and work in the publishing industry. I've casually shipped Dramione my entire life but started getting involved in the fandom more directly a year or so ago. I'm super excited to lend my skills to this project, and can't wait to see how it grows!Favourite thing about Dramione: My favorite thing about Dramione is the way they are pre-destined to come together regardless of the circumstances. Whether it's a dark AU, practically canon compliant, a canon re-write, or even a muggle AU, they are always drawn to one another and fascinated by one another. Their banter is also always top tier!Zine/Fandom Events: I was the senior community manager for John Green's charity book club project, Life's Library, for three years, and I've been a mod/community builder on a John Green fan Discord server since 2017!
