Yo! G'day! Hello! Namaste! Ciao! Bonjour! Guten Tag! Hola!
Okay, you get the point. I'm Ash. I'm an ancient history nerd (as you may have guessed, given all the ancient references I churn out sometimes), I read and write a lot (I own more books than...well, pretty much anything), I sing on the karaoke stage (though whether I sing well is open to debate between me and...well, me) and in the Gospel choir. I love films and books, especially epic ones and fantasy/sci-fi ones (Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter are right up there!)
I'll generally be calmly sitting either at home at my laptop or curled up with a book and sometimes a notepad or two making notes on things. It will either be work or me writing ideas for a story or something.
Well, yeah - basically, all I can say about me is don't judge a book by its cover. That's an extremely dangrous idea if you're talking about me. Seriously. And don't leave me alone in a bookshop either. That's not a good move.
My Twitter: @AnduriaTrianys (feel free to follow me; I'm always after people to talk fic with! :P)
My Tumblr: Litsetaure
I'm a chatterbox who's always out for new friends, so, y'know, if you want to natter just PM me. Be warned: you might find me hard to get rid of! :P
PS: In case you were wondering, yes, I am part Indian - and real proud of it as well! And, as much as I hate stereotpying, when someone said to me 'Huh, you're part Indian - you must love cricket', I couldn't very well get mad. Why? 'Cos I do.
Yeah. So. Things I like: (in no particular order)
Travelling - I can't settle in one place. Unless it's India. For some reason, I really settle there.
Reading - I own more books than I do clothes.
Writing - You will always find at least two notebooks in my bag along with a heck of a lot of pens.
Singing - Yeah, I'm the one making a twit of myself on the karaoke.
Art - Can't draw, but hey, it's still fun.
Ancient stories/epics/myth - I'm a (part-Indian) classicist.
Bad Jokes - Meet my father. 'Nuff said.
Harry Potter - Why did she kill Sirius AND Remus!
Post-It Notes - I have (counts) five in a fifteen centimeter space.
Chess - It's interetsing.
Sudoku - Helps me think.
Indian films - Can't understand them without subtitles, but so what?
Weird discussions - Usually, I'm the one who makes them random/weird.
Animals - They're good listeners, 'cos they never interrupt you.
Charity shops - Give 'em a try. They're awesome.
Long-haired guys - Not sure why.
Kooky music - Hey, I'm a kooky person.
Dogs - I had a dog. Her name was Duchess. She ran away. Oops?
Earrings - I hardly ever wear the same pair two days running.
Cricket - Having a family like mine was going to catch up with me eventually. Chak de India!
Things I don't like: (in no particular order)
Prejudice - I've seen too much of it.
War/Violence - I'm a pacifist.
Horror films - Can't STAND blood and guts.
Arguments - Heard too many of them.
My temper - Unfortunately, I've inherited my mother's.
Being told how to think - We've all got our own opinions. Sure, we should listen to others, but ultimately, we make our own choices.

From The Mortal Instruments Series: Magnus/Alec
Also, having seen The Hobbit, I also ship Fili/Kili. Yeah, I know. I also don't care.
Oh, and Merlin/Arthur from Merlin.
I'm such a hopeless romantic, it's almost ridiculous! And yes, I admit it - I am a shameless slash fan!
I'm not very good at writing humour, but I'm certainly willing to give it a try!
That's all I can come up with for now, to be honest.
Oh, except that, because I will definitely forget to put this in all my fics (Honestly, I'm so scatterbrained, I'd lose my head if it wasn't attached to my shoulders):
I don't own any of the fictional universes or characters. I'm just borrowing them temporarily for a bit of a laugh.
Love feedback, by the way! Don't hold back!!
Um...yeah, so I am still alive. And I haven't forgotten my fics and do intend to finish them, honest! I'd love to say I've got a good excuse, but I'd be lying if I did...unless an immense lack of inspiration and motivation counts as a good excuse. I've had an odd time, which has zapped my creative energy big time, but I'm slowly - VERY slowly sorry! - starting to get back into the swing of things again. To everyone reading my fics - thank you! I won't abandon them, I promise! Just might take a while for them to get finished.
Also, if anyone can suggest any methods for getting the creative energy back, please send them my way!
