I am Altra Palantir. I have been for long enough that the name has become part of my identity. I recently realized that it had literally been years since I have updated this bio. It was horridly out of date, and I started to feel a bit bad about it. (I also saved myself a copy, for posterity, because I am a bit of a dork like that.)

I have been writing; originals, fanfics, poetry, musical compositions, and scripts, since I was about seven. Sometimes I post my fics, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I don't even write them down. Sometimes I don't finish them. If I lose the mood, it is very hard to find again. I'm sorry. I know how incredibly frustrating it can be.

Fortunately, I have managed to make peace with myself, and therefore won't be terribly disappointed if anyone decides to roast me. Flames are perfectly welcome. I like fire. It's the element I get on all of those spiffy little quizzes floating around the internet.

Anyway, before I actually put all my weight on the soap box, I'll contain myself (and tonight's reflective mood) and leave you with a quote.

"Unconditional self acceptance is the core of a peaceful mind." -St. Francis de Sales

Another note: Some of the fics on this site were written a very long time ago, when I was far younger and really not very good. I keep them around to keep myself humble. Please keep this in mind and don't judge me on their quality. Please remember to look at the date on a story before reading, and remember what you were like that long ago.

Multiple Personality Disorder by UnderneathTheBridge reviews
Minerva is entirely confused when no one seems to be able to pick a fanfic personality and stick with it. Weird? Yes. Funny? I've been convinced that it is. I kid because I love, people...well, kinda.
