Author has written 20 stories for Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter.
Salut, tout le monde! Hey, everybody! My name's Girlbender, for Katara, Azula, and Toph; awesome girls who can kick anybody's butt with their bending! I am a major Star Wars, Harry Potter, White Collar, Lord of the Rings, Rurouni Kenshin, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Avatar: The Last Airbender fan.
I'm the kind of person who's all for adventure and humor, so most of my stories are like that. I won't read anything that has to do with explicit sex, homosexual couples, etc, etc, etc. The only kind of couple I don't mind is a guy and a girl. WITHOUT incest. -_-
For those of you who want to know... I do NOT like the idea of Anakin having Ahsoka as a Padawan. AT ALL. I've actually adjusted to Ahsoka as a character (it took quite a while, but I did it!), but she soooooo needs a different Master. I mean, seriously, she's going to turn into mini-Ani with the lessons he's teaching her, and for her to actually learn anything useful the show has to make Anakin out of character!! Most importantly, it breaks up the Ani/Obi team!! Horrors!!!! O_o
Well, that's about it for me. I hope you all enjoy my stories, and don't be afraid to give me tips! I need them! Also, please review them. I always enjoy the feedback! It helps me to know what people think works and what people like.
(3/10/'14) Spring break is here at last!! I can finally catch up on sleep!! Also, I can finally work on some of these stories! Well, okay, mainly Little One, but possibly some others...
Kita: *shakes fist angrily* Darn this dog!! She's making it very difficult for me... hopefully I'll get inspiration soon. Sorry to leave it abandoned for so long.
Little One: UPDATED. We're almost through!
Naboo Rose: COMING SOON! I'll publish the sucker once Little One is done so I don't have twenty unfinished stories. Mind you, I won't publish it right after I finish Little One; I'll give it some time first.
Revitalized War: COMING SOON! This is the sequel to Children of Rebellion. You guys said in my most recent poll you wanted to see this published before anything else, so it'll be out before Naboo Rose.
My pet peeves:
1. Character bashing. If you don't like a character, that's your opinion, and as much as everyone has a right to express their opinion, it should be in a well-mannered, polite, and intellectual way, not bashing someone you hate. The whole idea is pretty ridiculous if you think about it considering that the character is a two-dimensional piece of fiction.
2. Heterosexual people turned homosexual. Look, I don't agree with homosexuality, and while I have a great respect for the people with those inclinations since they're human beings like everybody else, I still really hate it when people take characters who are quite clearly shown as heterosexual and put them in a homosexual relationship. It really ticks me off.
3. Flamers. If you think that someone could write a story better, than give them a review that has constructive criticism. For those of you who don't know, constructive criticism is when you state what you think is doing well and then you state what you think could use some improvement. All of this is done in a helpful and optimistic light. People post stuff on fanfiction.net to improve themselves, not to get beaten down by people who have neither patience nor intellect.
4. Rabid Fans. I don't mind when people are really into a show, movie, book, etc. but it gets really annoying when something happens in a show or movie and then the fans go "That's not supposed to happen! They did it wrong!" HELLO-O, YOU'RE not the creator, THEY ARE. I mean, believe me, I get it; what Lucas did with The Clone Wars show really makes my blood boil sometimes, but you know what? It's THEIR story. We just get to play in their world. They can do whatever they want to do with it! If you have a problem, create an AU to fix it, but don't just sit around ranting about how stupid the creators are!
Here is a drawing of Capt. Mentzer and "Luke" from Little One by DarkSora2.1. Thanks, DarkSora! I never even thought anyone would do fan art for one of my fics, lol.
"A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it."
"Fallacies do not cease to become fallacies because they become fashions."
"An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered; an adventure is an inconvenience rightly considered."
"What embitters the world is not excess of criticism, but an absence of self-criticism."
"Among the rich you will never find a really generous man even by accident. They may give their money away, but they will never give themselves away; they are egotistic, secretive, dry as old bones. To be smart enough to get all that money you must be dull enough to want it."
"I believe what really happens in history is this: the old man is always wrong; and the young people are always wrong about what is wrong with him. The practical form it takes is this: that, while the old man may stand by some stupid custom, the young man always attacks it with some theory that turns out to be equally stupid."
"The person who is really in revolt is the optimist, who generally lives and dies in a desperate and suicidal effort to persuade other people how good they are."
"To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it."
"We have had no good comic operas of late, because the real world has been more comic than any possible opera."
"Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to that arrogant oligarchy who merely happen to be walking around."
"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."
"Once abolish the God, and the government becomes the God."
"If you attempt an actual argument with a modern paper of opposite politics, you will have no answer except slanging or silence."
"He is a very shallow critic who cannot see an eternal rebel in the heart of a conservative."
"For fear of the newspapers politicians are dull, and at last they are too dull even for the newspapers."
"When a politician is in opposition he is an expert on the means to some end; and when he is in office he is an expert on the obstacles to it."
"There cannot be a nation of millionaires, and there never has been a nation of Utopian comrades; but there have been any number of nations of tolerably contented peasants."
"It is true that I am of an older fashion; much that I love has been destroyed or sent into exile."
"The modern city is ugly not because it is a city but because it is not enough of a city, because it is a jungle, because it is confused and anarchic, and surging with selfish and materialistic energies."
"Love means loving the unlovable - or it is no virtue at all."
"Marriage is a duel to the death which no man of honour should decline."
"The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people."
"If there were no God, there would be no atheists."
"The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man."
"The truth is, of course, that the curtness of the Ten Commandments is an evidence, not of the gloom and narrowness of a religion, but, on the contrary, of its liberality and humanity. It is shorter to state the things forbidden than the things permitted: precisely because most things are permitted, and only a few things are forbidden."
"These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own."
"If a man called Christmas Day a mere hypocritical excuse for drunkeness and gluttony, that would be false, but it would have a fact hidden in it somewhere. But when Bernard Shaw says that Christmas Day is only a conspiracy kept up by Poulterers and wine merchants from strictly business motives, then he says something which is not so much false as startling and arrestingly foolish. He might as well say that the two sexes were invented by jewellers who wanted to sell wedding rings."
"Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable."
"It's not that we don't have enough scoundrels to curse; it's that we don't have enough good men to curse them."
"There is a case for telling the truth; there is a case for avoiding the scandal; but there is no possible defense for the man who tells the scandal, but does not tell the truth."
"Truth is sacred; and if you tell the truth too often nobody will believe it."
"There'd be a lot less scandal if people didn't idealize sin and pose as sinners."
"Idolatry is committed, not merely by setting up false gods, but also by setting up false devils; by making men afraid of war or alcohol, or economic law, when they should be afraid of spiritual corruption and cowardice."
"I say that a man must be certain of his morality for the simple reason that he has to suffer for it."
"The voice of the special rebels and prophets, recommending discontent, should, as I have said, sound now and then suddenly, like a trumpet. But the voices of the saints and sages, recommending contentment, should sound unceasingly, like the sea."
"Most modern freedom is at root fear. It is not so much that we are too bold to endure rules; it is rather that we are too timid to endure responsibilities."
"In the struggle for existence, it is only on those who hang on for ten minutes after all is hopeless, that hope begins to dawn."
"Modern broad-mindedness benefits the rich; and benefits nobody else."
"Price is a crazy and incalculable thing, while Value is an intrinsic and indestructible thing."
"Business, especially big business, is now organized like an army. It is, as some would say, a sort of mild militarism without bloodshed; as I say, a militarism without the military virtues."
"Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere."
--G. K. Chesterton
"Complete abstinence is easier than perfect moderation."
"Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation."
"Faith is to believe what you do not see. The reward is to see what you believe."
"Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others."
"Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again."
"God had one son on earth without sin, but never one without suffering."
"He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king."
"He who created us without our help will not save us without our consent."
"If we did not have rational souls, we would not be able to believe."
"If we live good lives, the times are also good. As we are, such are the times."
"It is not the punishment but the cause that makes the martyr."
"It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels."
"Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature."
"Anakin, the most difficult trial a Jedi must face is to look inside oneself. Often we see things we don't like. But these aspects are not set in stone. It is our decisions that shape our destinies."
"Oh, well, just another boring day saving the universe."
"Who's the more foolish, the fool, or the fool who follows him?"
Obi-Wan Kenobi: So, I assume the plan is to crawl through the sewer, work our way to the shield generator, fight our way through the defenses, blow up the generator, knocking out the shield and all our troops swarm in and overwhelm the enemy."
Anakin Skywalker: "Yup, let's go!"
Anakin Skywalker: "Everything I know I learned from you, Master."
Obi-Wan Kenobi: "Oh, if only that were true."
"I'm sorry, Master . You were right. It was a trap, laid out by the Sith, and I ran headlong into it... but I emerged victorious!"

OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
