Amanda Ausrotas...how do I begin to explain Amanda Ausrotas? Amanda Ausrotas is flawless. I hear her wand's insured for 10,000 galleons. I hear she does sonic screwdriver commercials... in Westeros. Her favorite movie is Pitch Perfect. One time she met Ruby Rose on a plane...and she told her she was pretty. One time she @replied Joss Whedon on Twitter... it was awesome.
