Picture of the Month belongs to ... KAREN X DEREK!!!!! :D Not surprised that nearly ninety percent of all fans of this enchanting TV show SMASH want these two to eventually end up together (cough PERMANENTLY cough). The Great Derek Wills is the very artistically driven, talented, and immensely successful British director hired to oversee the hatchling musical called "Bombshell", based on the life of the seductive icon Marilyn Munroe herself. He is witty, sarcastic, charming when needed, and dreadfully handsome with his trademark lopsided grin, intentionally messy hair, and gruff appearance. He pushes hard for the vision he wishes to see take to life, ambitious and hardworking. The cynical and somewhat snobby director finds himself taken aback and enchanted by a Broadway hopeful new to New York City, Iowa bred Karen Cartwright during her audition for the part of Marilyn. She is young, beautiful, naive, inexperienced, but unbelievably talented. The two come toe to toe with each other throughout the season - an undercurrent of attraction and sexual tension, of something else just beneath the surface. With a little push, the two could be smashing together. :)

Book of the Month? "Gift from the Sea" by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. A little book centered around the philosophical discussions that both men and women struggle to answer and identify with. It's an interesting read. It covers the shifting of relationships and marriage as well as meditations on youth and age, love, peacem solitude and contentment. A recording of her thoughts and the discussions of others that she interviewed. Very well written.
Favorite Type of Story? Original plot, light humor, seriousness, suspense, action, lemons (yes, hentai at heart), characters that are IN-character, well-written, thought provoking, inspirational, realistic.
Pet Peeves? Mary-Sues, when authors insert themselves into the story, OC characters that are the main characters in the story, bad grammar and spelling, overly dramatized exaggerations on the worst qualities of a character that it intervenes on the character itself. For example: Lucius Malfoy (HP) is a pure-blood aristocrat who is full of himself and worries about the wealth and status of his family - however, some people overemphasize this and make him out to be a brainless pansy when he in fact is intelligent, clever, sly, ruthless, and an asshole...I personally think that they're jealous of his beautiful sleek hair...I know I am...
Personal Beliefs: I have no problem with people who are gay or prefer to read and write fics that have guy/guy and girl/girl pairings. The only thing I do have a problem with is incest. There is no reason for that. EVER. As for religion, yes, I'm catholic, but truthfully, I respect all other religions. In my opinion, there shouldn't be so much murder over such beliefs because why? All religions are meant to look up to a higher being, deity, or place that will gives us mercy, redemption, and a better after-life. They all point in to the same direction: be a good person, have moral values, do the right thing, etc...
Expectations: I won't be shy - I like lemons. I like intimacy - both steamy and tender. There usually is a lemon somewhere in my stories except for the ones rated for teen and children. Mature ratings include language and violence, but there will probably be some sexual content - however, I'm trying to be more considerate of others who are weary of reading such material by providing warnings. I am a thorough writer and very descriptive. My forte lies within angst and mild humor. None of my humor-oriented stuff is belly-aching worthy, but I still hope to try :) I like action, mystery, and a little angst. Most of the time I try not to be depressing but it happens anyway. I due tend to have sarcasm as well. I love oneshots and multi-chapters equally. Oneshots make me feel more accomplished however since I rarely finish my multi-chapter stories (all of which I really want to finish, but just don't know how to get past the guilt). I have the problem of too many ideas running rampant and not enough sense to just stick with one until finished. Sigh. When I start a story, I tend to update more. I won't lie - I'm a horrible updater and cringe at my past inner anguish and silent curses towards other authors who rarely updated their stories. Now I have a better appreciation. I never did like being a hypocrite. One thing I will say is that I will try. I don't mean to be rude to my readers (I adore them, actually). It's just that life gets in the way.
FLAMES: Please. Grow up.
REVIEWS: Please drop one off if you have the time!
PROGRESS ON CURRENT FICS...
Vicissitude (Meaning: change, alteration): (Harry Potter based) Hermione x Severus, Theo, Sirius, Harry, one-sided Voldemort, Viktor, OC; prologue plus one chapter
Akuen (Meaning: Unfortunate Love): (BLEACH based) Rukia x Multiple (mainly Kaien); X-chapters (I'm winging it); prologue plus three chapters.
A Heart's Strangled Cry: (InuYasha based) Kagome x Sesshomaru; 31 chapters (plus prologue)
"The Twenty" by Leyna Rountree (HGSS - thoughtful, feministic, and sad as Hermione allows a sacred spell to torment her as she refuses to acknowledge her desire for one man)
"Lord Shomamoo" by Danyealle (KagSess - a tale in which a failed attempt at murder by Kikyou lends Kagome in a bizarre situation: a small and helpless two-year-old with her memory swiped blank. Fortunately, however, a certain Daiyoukai stumbles upon the newly transformed Kagome and reluctantly takes her under his protection until they find InuYasha. Along the way, bonds form and soon, Sesshoumaru nor Jaken can just let go of the lovable and affectionate child that showed them such care and compassion.)
P.S. - Is it bad that I find Nnoitora as sexy as Grimmjow and practically squealed when he switched places with Tesla to hold Orihime? Probably.
