"It is my habit to know things" -Ravus, from Holly Black's Valiant


Hey-la!

Some stuff about me:

My name is Kari, I am female, 21 years old. I have been writing fan fiction since I was about 13. Needless to say, I've grown quite a lot since then as a writer, and I still probably have quite a lot more growth to do. My username is pretentious because I made it up when I was 15 yay.

I love music (pretty much all kinds that don't include screaming), and I am a classically trained vocalist (so I love to sing.) I adore history and linguistics. I want to be a doctor because I love learning about the human body and the way it works (and the ways in which it fails to work), and also because I really want to help people (yum, clichés).

I have various chronic illnesses, and it sucks, but that's okay. (Dealing with health issues and university at the same time means I don't write very often during the school year)

I foreverlove Instant Star, and that is what the majority of my stories (all from the last five years or so) are about. Jommy is, and always will be, my OTP. I might be the only person in the world who spends the majority of their free time writing and reading Instant Star fic. You know, considering the show ended like a billion years ago.

I live on Tumblr. (my URL is asortoflight)

Update, July 2015: For those wondering, I am working on two more chaptered Instant Star stories, one a sequel, one not. I can't say exactly when they'll be finished (I don't publish stories as I write them, I always wait for them to be done) or which will be finished first, but I hope to have at least one of them completed and up by the end of the year. (I'd say the end of the summer, but I don't want you to be disappointed if that doesn't happen)


Grandiloquent (gran-ˈdi-lə-kwənt) adj. Pompous or showy, esp. in language or speech.

After a year in London, a loophole in her contract forces Jude to head back home for a month to be a part of the World Instant Star Finale.
