Hi Everybody! Said like Dr Nick Rivera from The Simpsons (Note to anyone at 20th Century Fox; Please don't sue!)
As you can tell from actually reading this profile, my name is Iana Silmir; to everyone not used to fanfiction.net, this is NOT my real name! My real name shall remain unknown for personal reasons, mostly because some people already registered on here may know me; I'm a private kind of gal... And I am a girl, no matter what my best friend likes to say!
I suppose I'd better get on and introduce myself. Quoted from my other friend, Shalashahka, who's sat next to me; 'I'm not tall but my breasts make up for it!' I will kill him for this later... I have shoulder length hair and the jury is still out on whether it is blonde or brown; I can blame my dad for this. I have blue eyes, but they're neither bright nor dark; again, I'm stuck in the middle. These eyes are usually covered in dark grey or purple eyeshadow and the like. My nose is small and cute... ish... and I've been told I have expressive lips (Not telling by whom). But unfortunately, all of this is marred by some rather unsightly looking metal and plastic things that I have to wear to be able to see; if I didn't wear them, I'd most probably fall down a large hole at the next roadworks!
I'm busy studying in 6th form college in St Helens near Liverpool (for those of you with Microsoft Autoroute, this should be easy to find), but this college shall remain nameless, just in case... I'm studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths, which I hate but have to do to get into Liverpool University! I'm in my second year, and the work is just starting to get harder; I mean, how is the square root of x to the -1, all cubed, all over x to the power of 5 -4 going to help me in later life? Before I joined this college, I had two best friends, but I have since picked up another four, three of them from Widnes and the other from Huyton. All of these friends may be used in my stories from time to time, but they've all picked out a pen name for themselves; Shalashashka is just one of them...
Right, my interests... interests... hmmm... Oh yeah!
My interests include music, and lots of it! Mostly Muse, Nirvana, Nickelback, Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte, Marilyn Manson, Foo Fighters etc... Sometimes Danny Elfman and Howard Shore pop up on my iPod (No 'sue'ing form the Apple Mac people please!), mainly because Howard did most of the composing for LOTR and Danny worked with Tim Burton on a number of his films. Another interest is reading; this section of my time is mostly dedicated to LOTR (Duh...), Tamora Pierce's Lioness and Immortals quartets, Garth Nix's Old Kingdom and Key To The Kingdom series, Christopher Paolini's Inheritance trilogy, Trudi Canavan's Black Magician trilogy, Anne McCaffrey's Pern books, JK Rowling's Harry Potter and lots more... a LOT more!
My hobbies include drawing, but even when I want my pictures to look cartoonish, they always end up looking too life-like for my tastes. I especially love drawing dragons; I've even developed my own personal style as I don't like copying other peoples work. Another hobby is gaming; I'm not a huge gamer, but I love to sit and play for hours on the PS2 (Again, no 'sue'ing; I'm gonna be skint by the time I finish this profile!) that I share with my younger sister and even younger brother. My favourite games include LOTR (How many times am I going to have to say 'duh'?) 'The Two Towers', 'The Return Of The King', and 'The Third Age'. Others include the 'Legacy Of Kain' series, 'Devil May Cry', 'Prince Of Persia: The Warrior Within' (which I haven't finished yet) and such like.
The stories I write are mostly about LOTR, with ideas from other films and books added in; some of the ideas appear when I'm on a sugar high, and others are from some seriously freaky dreams that I have. All of these stories are co-written with my very bestest friend Silver, who will also remain nameless. Silver is a serious LOTR fan, and in fact, it was she who introduced me to it in the first place. Because we started writting our stories when we were 12, they tend to be self-insertion fics, as we can't write properly from a 3rd person point of view. As they are self-insertion fics, the main characters have our pen names, our personalities and our dreams; I mean, both of us want to live in Middle Earth, and this is the only way we can do it.
Well, that's it about me for now, if anyone else wants to know any more, just review my work and ask away. I don't even mind if they're personal questions about my life, just please review my work! XxX
