"We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely.

All art is quite useless."

-Oscar Wilde

Okay, so it appears that there are some peoples out there that would be interested in what kind of peoples I would be. Appparently I would be the kind that likes to intentionally butcher the english language when not actually writing fics.

Personal info: I'm about twice the age of the average fangirl, I live with my daughter (8 yrs), roomie and 4 birds. I've been writing since I was very young, though I'm just now getting to feeling like I might not blow big ugly goats at it.

Current fandoms: Saiyuki (can you tell?),Wild Adapter, and everything else Minekura, Loveless, Yu Yu Hakusho, Kyou Kara Maou, Vampire Knight, Fruits Basket, Rurouni Kenshin, Yellow, Full Metal Alchemist, Get Backers, Weiss Kreuz, Tokyo Babylon & X ('cause really can't separate them now) Gravitation, Fushigi Yuugi ( 'cause lame is more fun than anything. One of my birds is named Tasuki). Good lord, when I look at this later, I'll realize that I'm missing about a dozen.

Since I believe that the best way to get insight into a person is through their music, I include the following list of favorites: Hawksley Workman, Tool, Deathstars, Evans Blue, Damien Rice, Tori Amos. These are not all by a long shot, but even ff.net wouldn't have room for a complete list.

Pet Peeves: People who don't know how to use an apostrophe. ESL people are excepted, of course, but fully grown and post-secondary-educated humans really should be able to grasp this simple concept.

Feedback on my fics is very much appreciated, and gives me the incentive to keep it up. Constructive criticism is welcome, since no one is a perfect writer (certainly not me). Flames will be used to toast marshmallows.

Thanks for checking my stuff out!!
