Greetings and salutations. My name is Brainiac 5, at least on this site. It is my personal opinion that, if this site is the only place where you will have contact with me, this pseudonym is the only name you need to know. I am of an age where life seems to be attempting to run me over, and I'm still not entirely sure what I want to be when I grow up. My best friend is Jesus Christ, and I know that he loves me even more than I could ever love him, and will always love me.
I am a human female who enjoys reading, writing poetry and fiction (in addition to fanfiction), drawing, listening to music, wasting my life on netflix and various animes, practicing karate, science, learning foreign languages, and attending church. (Yes, you heard me right, I actually enjoy attending church. What a shock!)
Of everything God created, the thing I appreciate the most is a good story, which does not require huge explosions, nonstop action, or even (shock of all shocks) violence. A good story, in my opinion, is a good plot, carefully woven and crafted by an author with a strong, unique voice, who does not need to compensate for a lack of literary style by peppering the story with profanity, stupidity, and generally rude, crude, and unacceptable scenes. (I would say 'socially unacceptable' scenes, but to date, these scenes are becoming more and more socially accepted. However, they are still completely unacceptable.)
One of the peeves that I pet frequently is a good idea carried out badly. It bothers me when someone comes up with a great idea, spends three-to-five badly-written paragraphs on it, and then lets the whole world see the great story that could have been. It's not a sign of weakness to seek a beta and with their help, create a masterpiece. I don't know anyone who would complain; I certainly wouldn't. People weren't made to do everything by themselves, writing is no exception.
Another pet peeve of mine is the nefarious and abundant lack of grammar on this site. While even I sometimes struggle with keeping every single sentence grammatically correct, and sometimes there may even be a good reason for that dangling participle, "They're" is not "Their", which is not "There". If you can't keep it straight, see the above paragraph and find a beta who knows the difference.
Hobbies in depth:
LISTENING TO MUSIC:
I love cartoons and I'm a sucker for Disney animated flicks. I would take action-adventure or sci-fi flick over a chick flick ANY DAY. Studio Ghibli is fantastic and I enjoy watching anime IN JAPANESE, sometimes without subtitles when I'm feeling daring. I'm also a comics/cartoon nut. I am a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender, Teen Titans, Legion of Super-Heroes, TMNT, and Ultimate Spider-man (soooo good, don't get me started, seriously).

Finally, I always forget to put my disclaimers in my stories, so here goes:
If I've posted a story up here, it's FANFICTION. IE, I didn't invent (most) of the characters, or the universe in which they currently reside. I often wish I were creative enough to have done so, but I'm not. There you have it. They don't belong to me, I don't make any money off of them, but I love them anyway.
