June 9, 2013: Hey everyone, my grandfather passed away recently, so I may not be on internet life for a while. Thank you for your patience.
Megatons of fandom, ships and etc to add to the profile, but I've been so busy... ;; They're all on the stories below. :)
"Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."
- Margaret Thatcher
You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star. - Nietzsche
'Forget regret, or life is yours to miss.' - RENT
"Claiming that someone else's opinions and beliefs are against your own is like being angry at someone for eating a donut because you're on a diet." - moi (me)
"The song ends, but the story lives on." - Doctor Who
"You're not the same person at supper that you were at breakfast. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon snack, cocktails, supper and midnight munch. These are the Seven Ages of Man."

As you know, I'm probably the one who will most likely believe all canon pairings... haha!! I DO NOT like yaoi or yuri, unless if it's canon. Get that?! But I'm a straight person who supports gay rights in the real world. :)
I write because I believe that a piece of work can change a person for the better, through drama and humor.
If this were DeviantArt, I'd have LOTS of emoticon faces that would pollute my profile. :D
I love humor. I just wish I was good at it! haha
If you see my stories, I write angst, but seriously, I'm no emo. I do write some crack humor... ;; Chonny rocks my socks. :3 :D Watch and subscribe to him on YouTube. :D You'll laugh, trust me. :)
Subscribe to GloZell :3 :D
I'm just going to say... MUDKIP
NOTE: for reading fics and stories, I'll will try within my power to finish them. I have a short attention span, and I'm the world's horrible procrastinator, and I'm busy with school and such. If I miss your fic, I truly am sorry. I'm sorry that I won't be there, but I'm sure the story will kick ass, and I wish you for the best. :) I'm sure you're a very talented writer.
Updating: Mulit-chaptered stories that are WAYYYYYY past over due. So sorry, folks. I thank you for your patience, and I hope updates will come in the future. I need to limit myself with time, and college is very demanding. Thus a hiatus on some of my fics... ;; To make up I can give you spoilers. :D
Currently: Some one shots, if a random plot bunny doesn't take me away... If it does come, expect it in five months or the next century. :'D jk :) I really want to submit something for "Gargoyles" for some reason... feh heh. After watching "Star Wars" again and my beloved almost sister Jedi X-Man Serena Kenobi influencing me with her incredible fics, I want to do something for the section too...
I am planning on writing my own original Doctor Who universe, but this time it is a female Time Lord. I am having so much fun writing it... :D It's called "Ordinary Average Day".
Other Things: If I find that a fandom is interesting enough, I might write fics for it... Other than fanfiction, I write original works and post them on my Fictionpress and DeviantArt account. Beware: lots of poems and such. :D COLLEGE LIFEEEEE ;; Sorry. I HAD to do that. haha
I am currently studying journalism in post secondary (university/college), and so far I am enjoying my learning.
I have a muse. Her name is Sasha. Her theme song is "Crazy In Love" by Beyonce. donotlaugh/judgewearelosers 8) Beyonce fans will get this, but I am not ripping off Beyonce... Sasha introduced herself to me as Sasha! She goes insane when she's on sugar... it's like her crack cocaine. 8) She inspires me in my ideas/writing. That is all you need to know. 8) Once I have a more permanent diagnosis, I will keep you updated. Merci. UPDATE: She loves to dance to Lady Gaga. ... Weird.
I have come up with acronyms for our crazy little shrew. Severe All-hope-lost Shortage Hyperactive Apocalypse. 8)

I would have to say it would be Takari (T.K. and Kari) (Digimon)... I shipped the couple from the start when I first watched it, since when I was little... :3 :D
Justice League has ADORABLE pairings! Though I have to say that it would be John/Shayera, Bruce/Diana, Vic/Helena, and Green Arrow/Black Canary (Ollie/Dinah)...
Tamaki/Haruhi (Ouran High School Host Club) They are so cute together! marvels!*
Logan/Rogue (X-Men (movie-verse)) Hey, even though they had their rough moments, I still find this cute and adorable, even if they kinda didn't get together. :D This one got me so insane and obsessive! haha!

Caspian/Susan (Chronicles of Narnia) (movieverse paring... Caspian must have been like... 14 or something in the original books, but they made him in his 20'sssssss in the movie. :P But watching the movie again has convinced me... to me the acting was stiff for me to see the chemistry between the two, but looking at the acting a little harder helped.)

Harry Potter pairings are iffy for me... there are too much for me to break down and analysis if I know I really like it... heh... So far it's Scorpius/Rose, Ron/Hermione, probably need to brush up on my HP info... haha
I would be lying if I said I didn't like Cannon character/OC pairings, so yeah... I do write cannon/OC, but I like it REAL RESEARCHED REALISTIC. Thank you.

A legendary friend of mine, who stood strong to withstand my shitty fanfics when I was a n00b. I thank her so very much, with a chocolate ice cream sundae with a cherry on top, for standing by my side for all of these months! You watch me grow as a writer, and your patience is so very comforting to hold on to me for all of this time! You're the best! You are my mentor in writing... don't stop. :) XOXO
Another golden friend who I treasure so deeply in my heart! Even in your deep angst fics, your writing style can make ANYTHING loose, bouncy and cherry. I love your balancing nature so much, I miss it when you can't be on here. LURVE YA. :D
LET'S DOMINATE THE WORLD!! YOUR HOUSE, OR MINE!! We love you, no matter what. :hugs!: Let's go insane when I have a sugar high! MWAHAHAHAHHAAHAH!! (And bring the shoelaces!!)
:SNIFF: WAH!! You have been my supportive anchor when I was lost in a sea of doubt. Your words help me see things through, and you have grown A LOT since you started. Keep it up, and you'll kick ass!
:hugs: Thank you so much, for guiding me through everything! When I posted my first "Justice League" fic, I had NO clue whatsoever what to do next! When you reviewed, I was overwhelmed with joy! Thanks again for everything! Luv ya! And keep up the writing!
A wonderful young lady. Talented at such a young age, you'll be a somebody in the future. :) heart Never stop rollin'! :D
My almost sister, I can talk to her about ANYTHING. :D glomp Plot bunnies that reproduce in her mind like... well, bunnies, inspiration is endless when I'm with her. heart Keep on at it! :D Love you til hell freezes over!
Fellow Knock Out/Arcee shipper, CRAZY for Invader Zim, love of writing and Deviantart... I'm so glad to be your friend. :) Keep on kicking ass and drinking beer!! 8)
A hilarious lad here, he's one of the few real life friends that I know. Anime, Doctor Who, Transformers, and many more... We know way too many fandoms for our health. Keep on truckin', partner. I know you'll be a somebody someday. :)
One last thing about me... Whenever I eat sugar, even the tiniest amount... I go insane for no reason... strange...
Advice I found...
1) Remember: No one pops out good works like magic, no talent would shine without hard work. When you are envying, or complimenting other's "Talents" you are really complimenting their results of hard work. No matter how talented one can be, without hard work talents are NOTHING.
Everyone has a different starts, different environments, different developments, different interests.
Everyone has a different start, a different environment, and different development... as long as u focus on developing yourself with what you have, do not let age bother you... and try to learn from whoever you can learn from. Many artists are talented and gifted since their youth. But it's also their environment that plays a major role to cause the early development in their lives, versus some who start late.
People who start late will have their experience in life, and personality developed more than skill, although taking longer to learn, they are already gifted with other life experience to start on.
2) Use: Use whatever you have, if all you have is MS paint, use it until others would scream if they know it's MS paint you used to make your work. Use whatever medium and information you are provided with, and become the master of them.
3) Avoid common deception: Some think having better tools will make their work better, like those they admire, or at least get there faster. That's a wrong belief, the advance tools take time to learn, it's a lot harder and more troublesome to learn as well. Only proceed to advanced tools when you feel the current tool can no longer match up to your need.
4) Put down your ego: You can only learn when you put down your ego. If you are an older artist, and saw many young and talented ones, you can feel threaten, but art is art, techniques are techniques, they are neutral things you can learn from anyone and everyone. So learn from whoever you can learn.
5) Race with yourself, and see others as inspiration. The wonderful thing of this world is variety... when you have developed well into one area of art, another person may have perfected another type of art you didn't think of doing... learn from one another, and only compare with yourself, "Did I do better this time than last time?" "I will not make the same mistake on my next one." "What can I do to improve from the last picture?"
Avoid letting the competition take weight in your heart, it can get you depressed. But if you see others as inspirations, it's much easier for you to learn and improve.
6) Go for a break through. My own quote is, "Whenever you are in a content stage with your work, it means it's time to learn something new." There is always room for improvement, in fact if you don't improve, your work will be "retired" by time. So always aim to improve yourself, do your best.
Hope you enjoy my stories! :D *blows kisses*
