Who Are You, Again?
I'm AquilaTempestas, formerly known as glitteredvixen06 (you may also know me as CaligoRenatus). This account is actually my original - the one I first used to join this site way back in 2006. I ended up abandoning it late in 2009 to create a new account (which became AquilaTempestas - now known as No Longer Active Here) after enduring a very rough year on this site. I won't go into details here, but it almost had be booted off at one point.
I used my No Longer Active Here account from 2009 to 2015, after abandoning it due to another rough year. History repeats unfortunately. I did plan to leave permanently, but I love writing far too much and couldn't bear to keep away. I took a month off to refocus and determine where I wanted to go from here onwards. I tried setting up my own website and moving over to archive, but those experiments didn't quite turn out as planned. So I am back, and using my very first account. Why this one? Well, I deleted all my stories on No Longer Active Here thinking I would not return, then changed my email address. I decided to come back a month later and couldn't log back in. I was left with little choice but to return to where it all started.
Those of you who have come here from No Longer Active Here, may want to favourite this username again. It's all a bit confusing, but this is my primary account now. If this is your first time visiting this username's profile page, I hope you like what you see!
For those of you have followed me since my early days, you may be wondering if my 200 stories will ever return. I did think about re-uploading them all, but in the end I decided they will not be uploaded again. If you're still keen on reading them, send me a PM and I can give you the link on how to obtain them.
Okay, now that's resolved, who are you anyway?
I'm a twenty-three year old Australian-born female who writes as a hobby. I'm a part-time university student (having just completed my Bachelor in Business degree) now undertaking a Diploma in Justice. After that, I plan to take on a Law degree. When I'm not studying or working, I can usually be found gaming or writing, two big passions of mine.
My ideas may not be the most popular ones around, but I write what I myself want to read. Thus, the majority of my stories will be centered around dark and realistic themes.
I really like pairings that are either ignored, disliked and unheard of. I'm not too big on slash, although I really like Sam/Lucifer (Supernatural).
I don't consider myself as a canon or AU writer - rather, I write what I understand and see. I write what makes logical sense in my mind. My aim as a writer is to take you on a journey with the characters and watch them grow overtime. I consider plotting, character development and dialogue my strong points, and I hope it's decent enough to make my work worthwhile.
I'm far from being perfect, but I hope you can find something in my stories that makes you smile. It's been a tumultuous ten years for me on this website, filled with many arguments and cyber bullying attacks, but I keep coming back despite the problems. If you really enjoy writing, continue! Don't let other opinions stop you from writing what you want.

It's been a long time since I've done a profile update, but I figure I ought to do something about that.
I've decided to remove a large majority of my stories. Only the more popular ones remain.
Why? They've had their time and I don't see any point in reuploading once popular stories (mostly one shots).
I'm going to be compiling my stories into ebooks/pdf files instead. If you are interested in placing an order (they are free!), let me know via PM.
The full list will be posted over the next couple of days.
This month I officially begin work on my two final major projects - 'Liberum Arbitrium' (sequel to A Hero's Last Cry) and 'Spirit of Champions' (the final book in the Mark of a Legend series'.
I've been writing since 2006, and I feel like I've reached that peak in my writing life. Think of these last two main stories as 'a best of hits albums' or even a 'farewell and thanks for all the support over the years'. Of course, I'll still write short stories here and there, but after 2017, I'm not going to have the time to work on epic length stories anymore.
Both stories will be released this August, and I'm planning on having them completely written by June/July next year, and fully uploaded by December 2017.
For fans, I hope you'll enjoy them and see them as fitting ends : D
Thanks again everyone. I would not have made it this far without you all _
