Okay, well it's been a good, long while since I've updated my profile last, so here it goes.
To start off with, I am a Christian. My faith is before anything or anybody else; God goes first. I just wanted to make that known. It would take me a countless number of pages to describe me and God, besides it's pretty personal. But, if you ever have any questions about Christianity or what not, feel free to ask me. Or, if you want to bash me about it, I don't care.
I like to do a lot of things, but three things I simply love are writing, reading, and movie making. I love to write, well, because I can fully express myself. It's where I vent all of my feelings. When I write fan-fictions, I try to keep with the original author's style, but try to add a little bit of my own. You dig? Reading, :sigh:. I will never cease to be a book-aholic. Reading to me is like entering another world, seeing life through someone else's eyes; something I can't experience on my own. And, finally, I just love to make films. If I could be a movie director for the rest of my life, I'd be happy. I don't even know why I like doing it so much, but movie making is an extreme passion of mine.
About My Fan-Fictions:
"Never the Same" (Alex Rider): This is a multi-chapter fic about another mission Alex goes on. He, once again, realizes that he never can "be the same" as everybody else (hence the fic title). Another major character, Remus Lottswich, (created by me!) and a major criminal organization, Rutilus Leo, is introduced.
"Between the Lines" (The Outsiders): A one-shot about the events between Ponyboy's passing out (after Dally's death) and his recovery. I mainly wrote it for my enjoyment, but hopefully to fill in a couple of gaps the book left out.
"Life After" (Skybreaker): This was supposed to be a mult-chapter fic about Matt Cruise and the events post-Skybreaker. However, lack of motivation, time, and interest has kept me from writing the next chapters. What I'm saying is that please don't expect (or ask me about) more chapters soon.
"The Weight of a Sword" (Troy): A one-shot about Prince Hector's (of Troy) thoughts before entering his last battle with Achilles and before his tragic death. I wrote it revolving around one sentence that sort of popped into my mind while watching the movie entitled, "King Arthur." Prince Hector is one of my favorite "Troy" characters, and his death was one of the saddest for me.
"No Longer in Narnia" (Chronicles of Narnia): I've wanted to write a Narnia fic forever, but really no ideas had come to me. I wrote this on a whim, and it isn't my best written fic. In fact, the first time I posted it, I got lovely help from another FF writer who really helped me make it better. But, anyway, I think (yes, I think, because I'm not too sure myself) is that this one-shot is just a character-growing experience for the young Peter Pevensie. Peter is probably one of my most favorite Narnian characters, and I just wanted to write a bit about him, character wise. I also wanted to incorporate some Biblical references (which the C.S. Lewis category of FF.net is sadly in desperate need of) because the Narnia series is all Bible-based. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about that matter.
"Not Always Golden" (Chronicles of Narnia): I've had this idea floating around my head for a while, and I just, recently, began putting thoughts to paper. What always got me was that, in Prince Caspian, the Pevensies are referred to as the Kings and Queens of the "Golden Age" of Narnia. So, this story begins directly after the Pevensies are crowned as the Kings and Queens. Set in Peter's perspective, it envolves around the troubles (and, eventually, triumphs) Peter goes through as he struggles being a first-time High King, an older brother, and a teenager...all at once. I have the gist of the plot already written down, so there shouldn't be too long of a wait between chapters. (ON HIATUS)
"Believe" (Chronicles of Narnia): This is a one-shot from an regular Londoner's, Charlie, point of view. One day, Peter and his class visits Buckingham Palace and Charlie sees something in this boy, something extraordinary, and he, not really knowing why, believes.
"Decisions" (Chronicles of Narnia): I've read quite a few Prince Caspian (the movie) Telmarine castle invasion AU's (most of which had been left, uncompleted, on hiatus, and so I decided to write my own. Peter, in the midst of a failing battle plan, makes a hard decision: leaving behind his doomed subjects or becoming one of them. His actions, of course, have some unfortunate consequences. (ON TEMPORARY HIATUS)
"Frater, Amicus" (Chronicles of Narnia): "Frater, Amicus" is a collection of 100, non-related drabbles (each only containing 100 words) about Peter and Edmund Pevensie. I've read a couple of these 100-word, drabble collections (namely "Glimpses of Gold" by ilysia), and thought it was high time for one to be written about my favorite characters: the Pevensie brothers! I am trying to write these at a pretty good pace but have had a couple of difficulties (CHAPTER NINE will RUE the day when I catch up to it ;)). Nevertheless, I do intend to finish this story! It's surprisingly difficult to convey a lot in only 100 words.
"Scars" (Alex Rider): This was the direct result of a conversation held with my sister. It's meant to be a crack!fic and completely spontaneous, ridiculous, sarcastic, and mildly funny. I'm usually one for intense, non-comical fics, but this one begged to be written!
My Fan-Fictions' Status:
"Never the Same" (Alex Rider): Twelve chapters later, it is finally complete! Thanks to all of the people who read, reviewed, and helped me along this somewhat treacherous journey!
"Between the Lines" (The Outsiders): Being a one-shot, it is complete.
"Life After" (Skybreaker): This is still a MAJOR work in progress. I have no intention on working on it any time soon, sorry. The ideas I had for it have wordlessly diminished.
"The Weight of a Sword" (Troy): Hence it's name, it was a one-part story.
"No Longer in Narnia" (Chronicles of Narnia): Once again, this was a one-shot, so it is done.
"Not Always Golden" (Chronicles of Narnia): I am actively working on this story, and I cannot wait until I get further into it. I'm setting down the stones and I can't wait to see the finished project. (ON HIATUS)
"Believe" (Chronicles of Narnia): One-shot = Complete
"Decisions" (Chronicles of Narnia): The process has been slow, but it's getting there! I'm still writing chapters and figuring out plot details, don't worry! I have plans to actually complete this story in a reasonable amount of time.
"Frater, Amicus" (Chronicles of Narnia): I'm trying to write these as swiftly as possible, and I'm somewhat succeeding so far! Expect this one to be finished.
"Scars" (Alex Rider): As was above stated, this was a one-shot...so it is finished!

Literature-Related Pet Peeves:
Grammactical/Spelling errors! Can't stand 'em!
Fluff-books! Sure, I'll read a couple a year, but I like books with depth!
Slash stories! Sorry, but Pony and Johnny are NOT gay! Geez!
One of my biggest issues right now is with FF.net. Not the site, but uploading my chapters from a Microsoft Word document to the site is a pain, formatting wise.
Mary-Sues! They simply have to be the worst thing ever created! I am sick of FF.net being smothered by these stories!
The ever-so-normally-occuring, "I suck at summaries, so just read," mess! If you suck at summaries, then, no offense, but your story may, not be, well, that great either.
In the Outsiders section, I'm tired of:
1. The Curtis brothers/Dally having a sister
2. OCxDally shippings
3. Some Mary-Sue being transported back to the time of the Outsiders or visa-versa
4. Some OC (usually a girl) moving to Tulsa, getting attacked by the Socs, then waking up on a one of the gangs' couch
The Favorite Quotes Place
You guessed it! This is where I'm going to put my favorite quotes from movies, books, and everyday life!
You can't win. You know that, don't you? It doesn't matter if you whip us, you'll still be where you were before, at the bottom. And we'll still be the lucky ones at the top with all the breaks. It doesn't matter. Greasers will still be greasers and socs will still be socs. It doesn't matter. - Randy, The Outsiders

Savvy? - Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Carribean
One thing gambling had taught me was that no matter what hand you had you always played it with confidence or one hell of a bluff. - Two-Bit Matthews, "Nothing Out of the Ordinary," By: Tensleep
