Salutations, dear readers. Thank you for visiting my profile. I am Megii, though I also answer to Myst and Regina. To some I am simply "The Lady" and a few teasingly call me "Nanna M."
I am not a talented writer. I am a skilled writer. I'm quite adamant about this. I am not a person who has always had the ability to write well. I have a good mind for plots, but the ability to write those plots was much harder won. I have studied tooth and nail, written and read countless stories and books, to get where I am today, and I am constantly looking for ways to improve further as best I can with college nowhere near my horizons. I typically write transgressive fiction. I have been a member of fanfiction.net since 2006. I think the letter Q is completely and totally useless and vote that it be discarded from the alphabet, along with most usages of the letter C and X. Christopher Paolini, the author of Eragon, is the person who first inspired me to write.
I am a 24 year-old American female, and my birthday is in January. I like beautiful, spooky, dark and unusual things. I am a front desk clerk in a ski resort town, where I grew up. I have been told that I dress "like an old woman." I despise the sound of my own voice and thus cannot speak half as eloquently as I write and take every opportunity to let silence reign. Romance delights me in literature and entertainment, but not on a personal level, and I'm a sucker for explosions and epic martial-arts movie fights.
My goal is to be a translator and novelist. My back-up career choice is Funeral Services. I have a terrible weakness for music and fashions that pre-date 1950.
I listen to many different genres of music. I am completely enamoured with the 18th century castrato opera singer, Farinelli, and I could listen to Ragtime all day long, but you'll find me head-banging to The Human Abstract and KoRN just as often as I listen to people like Eisley and The Decemberists.
I don't do humor and comedy. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to be able to and I'm always looking for a good laugh, but all my attempts at being funny end up just being lame and idiotic, and I just fall flat on my face. I'm great when it comes to being witty, though.
My favorite books are Vladmir Nabokov's highly controversial Lolita and Anne Rice's Cry To Heaven. My favorite movie is the French duo Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources. And if Star Wars or The Lord of The Rings is ever playing somewhere, count me in as an audience member.
Whatever the fandom, I don't hate its canon pairings, I just immensely enjoy seeing (and making) the impossible made possible. The more outlandish the better!

For those of you that are readers/fans of mine, my Naruto/anime multi-chapters are as good as discontinued. Tou-san, Even Perverts Deserve a Second Chance, Our Tailed Burdens, The Wandering Sand, The Sun and The Moon, etc.; I have no idea when or even IF I will ever get back to these fics. Chances are I probably won't. I love this site as much as the rest of you, but I don't make money or progress on my career writing here. Still, I admit I wouldn't be half the writer I am today if I had never stumbled across this website. Feel free to take my concepts and write about them yourselves.

My #1 Fanfiction PET PEEVE: People writing a fic in First Person Point of View. There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, but all too often I've seen people write first person and fill the character in with their own personality. Honey, you are NOT Sarah Williams, I don't care how much of a crush you have on David Bowie.
Other Pet Peeves:
Putting completed stories on your alert list: Because, uh, wut? Dude, it's finished; there won't be anything to alert you to.
Favorite-ing, but not alerting incomplete stories: You DO know that there's more to come, don't you?
I don't read Female!Harry Potter fics, but if I did, I would be of the firm opinion that a girl Harry should only EVER be called Harriet.
Stories where people muck up an already existing character and make him/her completely OoC to the point where s/he is a viable OC. Just write a goddamn OC. I do realize, though, that sometimes we authors just slip up despite our best efforts. You can't write what you don't know.

Okay, rants over.
A Collection of Quotes:
Fan fiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. --From a Time Magazine article on fanfiction.
From the moment I met you, all those years ago, not a day has gone by when I haven't thought of you. And now that I'm with you again... I'm in agony. The closer I get to you, the worse it gets. The thought of not being with you—I can't breathe. I'm haunted by the kiss that you should never have given me. My heart is beating, hoping that kiss will not become a scar. You are in my very soul, tormenting me... what can I do? I will do anything you ask."―Anakin to Padmé. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
"Manon, don't run away! It's not to give you work. I was lying to you! It's because I love you, Manon. I love you with all my heart! Manon! I want to marry you! I'm all alone! I've got no-one! My grandparents are dead. My father hanged himself when I was little. My mother died of the flu. There's only Uncle Papet! He's rich, he's old. He's going to die. He's going to leave me all his money. It'll be yours, because I love you. I love you! I am sick for the love of you. It's suffocating me! I saw you bathing in the rainwater. I watched for hours. You were so lovely. I was tempted to commit a crime!" Ugolin to Manon, Manon des Sources (Manon of the Spring), 1986
"You know that. I told you so in the hills. I love you unbearably. Listen... please listen, Manon. Ever since I saw you, ever since I spoke to you, food has been turning to sawdust in my mouth, sleep has been a torment. If you reject me, I will die or go mad." Ugolin to Manon, Manon des Sources
"Destiny doesn't exist. Only good-for-nothings talk about destiny." Cesar Soubeyran, Manon des Sources
"If some people had wings and others didn't, and the government wanted to enforce 'fairness,' soon no one would have wings. Because wings cannot be redistributed, they can only be broken. Likewise, a government edict cannot make people smarter or more capable, but it can impede the growth of those with the potential. Wouldn't it be fair if, in the name of equality, we scar the beautiful, cripple the athletes, lobotomize the scientists, blind the artists, and sever the hands of the musicians? Why not?" Oleg Atbashian
If you open your mind too much your brain will fall out.
"Mozart said 'There's nothing to composing,' and that's all we do, we just write and play and write and play and write and.." Meg and Dia-Here, Here, and Here
My mind has touched the farthest horizons of mortal imagination and reaches ever outward to embrace infinity. There is no knowledge beyond my comprehension, no art or skill upon this entire planet that lies beyond the mastery of my hand... But as long as I live, no woman will ever look on me in love. Susan Kay-Phantom-Delacorte Press, 1991.
Oh, the cleverness of me! --Peter Pan
Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great. You have no power over me. --Sarah Williams-Labyrinth
Save a dragon. Kill a princess.
“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” --Ira Glass
"The gods envy us because we are mortal, because any moment might be our last together. Everything is more beautiful because we are doomed. We will never be here again, in this time and place."
Achoo! Oh, sorry, I'm allergic to bullshit.
Is that a snake in your pocket or are yo--ohshit it's a snake.

I think, therefore, I am.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and Third by experience, which is the bitterest. Confucius
