Author has written 12 stories for Sailor Moon, Doctor Who, and NCIS.
*UPDATE 6/18/14*For those of you reading my Doctor Who fanfic, 100 Songs for 100 Moments, I have decided to put it on a temporary hiatus. Please read the notice I added to the first chapter, I explain everything there.
About Me: I'm a 20 year old female. I love reading and writing, as well as lots of other things. I've written many things over the years, but some of my proudest accomplishments are the fanfics I post here. I'm also currently working on a novel, and would love to be a published novelist someday.
Other hobbies besides writing and reading are: dancing (any kind of dancing, but especially ballet. Ballet = love), singing, acting, volunteering with awesome charities (particularly in regards to mental health awareness) hanging out with friends, watching movies/TV shows, listening to music, being outside, biking, playing tennis, playing music (I play violin, viola and piano, and I'm trying to learn guitar) and more.
As you will quickly find out from my profile, I'm a crazy obsessive shipper and a hopeless romantic, and I have a thing for quotes. I also tend to ramble, so apologies for the length of this profile.
I, StarryNight101 do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, its length, or anything else.
I have joined the review revolution, post this in your profile and join the revolution!

Putumayo World Music
The Piano Guys
The Cat Empire
Florence and The Machine
Mumford & Sons
Of Monsters and Men
Band of Horses
Ludwig von Beethoven
Tchaikovsky (The Festival Overture in E-flat Major, The Year 1812 might just be the most epic piece ever composed.)
Modeste Mussorsgky (Playing The Great Gate of Kiev from his Pictures at an Exhibition is quite exhilarating!)
Plus a lot more artists, composers and random songs, but really, I have 2000 songs on iTunes. Music and literature are two of the things I am most passionate about, and I tend to talk about them rather a lot.
Favorite movies/ TV shows
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (This show is amazing, it has everything. And Joss Whedon is a genius. An evil one, but a genius nonetheless.)
Doctor Who (I have some serious issues with Moffat, and don't really enjoy the new stuff, but the RTD era was wonderful.)
Alias (I wasn't hugely fond of the last two seasons, but it was still decent, and the first three seasons were perfection)
Battlestar Galactica (2004 version)
Firefly (It deserved so much more than it got. *sniff*)
Nikita (2010 version. Ridiculously good. Seriously, it's amazing.)
Veronica Mars (The show is amazing, and the movie was so so so good. I'm so glad they finally resolved things!)
Fringe (Oh my goodness. This show. I don't even know what to say. Basically, it's kind of perfection.)
Outlander (Ohhhh boy. I recently discovered Outlander, and I got hooked pretty much immediately. Amazing acting, amazing writing, beautiful scenery, a ridiculously swoon-worthy romance... I cannot wait for season 2.)
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Sailor Moon (Original Japanese version with subtitles. I have fond feelings for the sub, since it was a huge part of my childhood but it's not nearly as good.)
Sailor Moon Crystal (OH MY GOD IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL. I also love how closely it follows the manga. It's just absolute perfection.)
The Narnia movies
All the Harry Potter movies
Ever After (I think this is my favorite version of Cinderella ever. It's a beautiful movie.)
New Year's Eve
Tangled (I'm a sucker for kids movies! And Tangled is one of Disney's finest, I believe.)
Mulan (One of my all-time favorite Disney movies. Mulan is such an awesome kick-ass character, and I love her relationship with Shang, too.)
Hercules (First of all, this movie has Meg. She is sassy and awesome, and one of my favorite Disney heroines. Secondly, this movie has Hades. He is sassy and awesome, and my favorite Disney villain. Also, the love story between Hercules and Meg is adooorrrabble and I love it so much.)
A whole bunch of Disney movies (I like pretty much all of the classics, and most of the others, too.)
The Swan Princess (Hehe... I was obsessed with this movie when I was a kid. And I still love it, no matter how cheesy it might be.)
My Neighbor Totoro
Howl's Moving Castle
Whisper of the Heart
Nausicåa of the Valley of the Wind
Anything done by Studio Ghibli and/or Hayao Miyazaki
Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight
Les Miserables (2012)
And a whole bunch of others.
Musicals I love
Wicked (only musical I've ever seen on Broadway or an off-Broadway tour... needless to say, it was fantastic.)
Les Miserables (I've only seen the 2012 movie... but oh my goodness, it is amazing.)
West Side Story
A Very Potter Musical (Not quite on the same level as the others, of course, but... it's totally awesome)
RENT (probably my favorite musical. So amazing.)
Phantom of the Opera
Legally Blonde - The Musical
Couples I ship: OTPs
These 6 ships are my OTPs. The ones I ship to an insane degree, the ones I mainly read and write about, the ones I am passionate about. I will ship them to the ends of this Earth and back.
Usagi/Mamoru, Sailor Moon (I'll always love Sailor Moon, and this pairing. They were my first OTP. Not much else to say, they are simply perfect. Tuxedo Kamen/Sailor Moon, Usagi/Mamoru, Serenity/Endymion… for now and forever, they are perfect.)
The Doctor/Rose, Doctor Who (whether it's 10/Rose or 9/Rose, or 10.5/Rose, or even 11/Rose, I ship like crazy. They will always be perfect for each other, for all of time.)
Michael/Nikita, Nikita (Holy shizzle, I ship. First of all, the amount of chemistry the two actors have is ridiculous. Secondly, they are just perfect for each other in any and every way. They've been through a lot together, but they remain strong. Also, a ship which actually sets sail and allows the character to kiss, a lot, and declare their love for each other? So satisfying.)
Peter/Olivia, Fringe (Gah, these two! I ship so insanely much. Their relationship has certainly not been easy, but it is perfection. They are perfection. I just… words can't even quite describe how much I ship. They have been through a ridiculous amount of crap together, but somehow, they always find each other again.)
Veronica/Logan, Veronica Mars (Yes, their relationship has had a lot of ups and downs, but I think they will always belong with each other. They have their issues, but no one is perfect. It will always be Logan and Veronica, no matter who else comes along.)
Tony/Ziva, NCIS (Oh my goodness, Tiva. 8 years of flirting, and being each other's most important person, and having more sexual tension than should be possible. These two are perfect for each other, and I cannot express how sad I am that Cote de Pablo left NCIS.)
The other ships:
Rei/Jadeite (The Senshi/Shitennou pairings may not technically be canon, but I think they should be. Rei/Jadeite is often humorous, and written as a Beatrice/Benedick type of relationship, which I love, but I think there's also a lot of potential depth to their relationship.)
Minako/Kunzite (Possibly my favorite Shitennou/Senshi pairing. I just love Minako, and I feel like Kunzite is perfect for her. They're probably my favorite Shitennou/Senshi pairing to write about, they just fit together so well.)
Makoto/Nephrite (I just feel like they compliment each other so well. It's been so fun exploring their relationship through my own writing.)
Ami/Zoisite (They are adorable and nerdy and perfect together.)
Haruka/Michiru (I cannot tell you how mad it makes me that the English dub made them cousins. I mean, seriously, WTF? It's okay to have a gay couple on TV in Japan, but not in America?? Michiru and Haruka make such a perfect couple, it's ridiculous that they were changed to cousins.)
The Lunar Chronicles
Cinder/Prince Kai (Ohhh where to start. I fell in love with them from their first interaction in the marketplace in Cinder, and their relationship has continued to be perfect. I don't even know what to say, but the angst Kai has had as he struggles with his feelings for Cinder and also placating Queen Levana, and the fact that he kept her foot, and then fact that Cinder risked her life to warn him and ALL OF WINTER. Ugh. Kaider is perfect.)
Scarlet/Wolf ("She's my alpha." "Like the star?" "What star?" "In a constellation, the brightest star is called the alpha. I thought you maybe you meant that she's... like.. your brightest star." "Yes. Exactly like that." I believe that interaction sums up how I feel about Wolflet. UGH SO GOOD. Also "I think I realized I would rather die because I betrayed them than live because I betrayed you.")
Cress/Carswell Thorne (Okay, so they are adorable together. And they compliment each other so well. And I know Cress has a huge crush on Thorne, and has from the very start, before she even met him, but over time it evolved into something real, something more than just a schoolgirl crush. And it obviously morphs into something real for Thorne, too. Between his reaction when Cress is kidnapped and their interactions towards the end when they mention the kiss, and Cress lies about her feelings... ugh. And then, again, ALL OF WINTER. That book was so perfect.)
Winter/Jacin (They are perfection. I fell in love with them from the first three chapters of Winter, just those little interactions. The way Jacin calls Winter 'Trouble.' The way he's the only one she feels safe around. The way IT'S SO OBVIOUS HOW IN LOVE THEY ARE. Winter's a little crazy, but she's also sassy and sweet and strong and caring, and Jacin helps bring out the best in her. Similarly, Jacin can be a little cold, but he's pretty caring, too. And Winter helps bring that out.)
Kinney/Iko (Soo... this happened. I've always adored Iko, but the thought of shipping her with someone didn't occur to me, I was so focused on the four main ships. But along comes Kinney, who Iko thinks is too handsome to be so obnoxious, and he's a good person, despite not really liking/trusting Iko and there's OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING MORE GOING ON. And I ship so much.)
Inuyasha/Kagome (I ship so much. Kagome brings out the good in Inuyasha, and throughout their long journey together it's clear how much her influence shapes him and makes him a better person. And of course, Inuyasha would do anything to protect her, but she's perfectly capable of taking care of herself and they are so perfect together and all the romantic tension and angst is so good even when it's painful and I'm SO GLAD they eventually end up together.)
Sango/Miroku (So adorable together! Sure, they have their difficulties, like the fact that Miroku is a ridiculous flirt/lecher and can't keep his hands off women. But it's obvious that the only one he cares for is Sango, and once they actually get together, he calms down a bit.)
Martha/Mickey (I never, ever would've thought of them as a good couple, until I found out they actually got married. And then it suddenly made perfect sense to me.)
Jack/Anyone vaguely humanoid (Because it's practically canon! Teehee. Actually, even though I haven't seen Torchwood, I've read a few good Jack/Ianto fics, so I ship them.)
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Skye/Ward (gaahh, Skyeward will be the death of me. I shipped them from pretty much the first episode, and this whole Ward being evil thing is killing me. I had such high hopes he could be redeemed, but... it's looking unlikely. Still, in a slightly alternate universe, I have to believe that Skyeward is alive and well and Ward is redeemable.)
Fitz/Simmons (I'll admit, I was on the fence about these two for awhile. I couldn't decide if I shipped them romantically, or if I just loved their BFF banter and adorable nerdiness. But over time, I grew to love them more and more, and I absolutely ship them. I refuse to believe that Fitz' affections are unrequited. FITZSIMMONS ARE PERFECT WHY DOES THIS SHOW BREAK MY HEART.)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Buffy/Angel (They were so perfect together... *sniffle* I generally only like them pre-Spike, as Spuffy does top Bangel for me, but they were a pretty epic ship nonetheless.)
Buffy/Spike (When a friend first gave me a teaser about season 4, saying Buffy and Spike got engaged, I was very hesitant. But Something Blue changed my mind. I'm a devout Spuffy shipper now. Spufffyyyyy! Also, season 7 is so good for Spuffy. That scene in Touched... and their conversation afterwards in End of Days... I truly believe that Spike loves Buffy, he doesn't just lust after her. And I truly believe Buffy loves Spike as well. There's a lot of hate towards this pairing, but I will always defend them.)
Xander/Anya (So sweet and perfect. I was so sad when they broke up! Hells Bells was such a sad episode, I cried so much. But then they kind of reunite, because it's obvious they love each other so much, but then Anya dies and gaaaahhhh it kills me.)
Willow/Oz (Pre-Tara only. Willow and Oz were a truly great couple, but Willow/Tara is the perfect ship.)
Willow/Tara (I loved them together, and their ending was so unbelievably sad.)
Giles/Ms. Calender (They weren't together for long, but it was so sweet, and so sad when Angel killed Ms. Calender! And when Giles goes to her house, because they're going to have a date, and he goes upstairs, and then he sees her lying on the bed dead, and it was so sad!! STUPD ANGELUS.)
Faith/Robin (I think they really bring out the best in each other. Well, Robin really brings out the best in Faith. Faith has some issues, obviously, and until Robin, I think all she ever knew in relationships was guys who were with her for her looks, guys she would use and abuse, and who would also kind of use her. But with Robin, I think he really helps bring out her best, and maker her a better, happier person.)
Ron/Hermione (To sum up how I feel about them, I'll steal a quote from someone else. 'The fact that Harmony is not canon has proved to me that you can be just best friends with a guy. The fact that Romione is canon as proved that a guy can be truly perfect for you, even if he is nowhere near perfect at all.')
Harry/Ginny (I know a decent sized portion of people think Harry/Ginny isn't half as good as Harry/Hermione, but I just can't see that. Harry and Hermione are just friends, Harry/Ginny is perfection. Also, what's with all the Ginny hate? It surprises me how many people hate her. I love Ginny!)
Mal/Inara (The fact that the show was cancelled before they could become canon makes me SO MAD. And sad. It's just so obvious that Mal and Inara are in love. Like when Inara finds Mal collapsed on the floor after kissing Saffron, and she's just so glad he's alive that she kissed him. Or all of the meaningful looks they share, and their Beatrice/Benedick relationship... it's just so perfect.)
Simon/Kaylee (This ship at least happened, which makes me so happy. Kaylee is a little childlike sometimes, and I love how Simon can take care of her. But Kaylee is also awesome and can take care of herself, and I love how she tells Simon off when he does something stupid. They're a wonderful couple.)
Wash/Zoe (Sometimes I hate Joss Whedon. Like when he does things like ruin a beautiful ship by KILLING OFF A CHARACTER IN IT. Ugh. But Wash and Zoe are so perfect together, and I love how they compliment each other, and are so obviously in love, but they still have their issues.)
Kara Thrace 'Starbuck'/Lee Adama 'Apollo' (I ship them so much. Seriously, from pretty much the first moment I saw them together, I shipped them. I love Battlestar Galactica, but the ending made me so sad. Poor Lee! Poor Kara! My poor shipper heart was so unhappy with the ending they got. Everything about them is perfect for each other! Especially when Kara returns and Lee's the only one who believes. I ship them so much. Ag.)
Sharon Valerii 'Boomer'/Chief Gaelen (As amazing as Battlestar Galactica is, a lot of the couples I ship had unhappy endings. I was so sad when Boomer joined up with Cavil. And then when she came back and deceived Gaelen. I wish they had a happy ending.)
Adama/Roslin (I love how slowly their relationship progresses. It starts out with them as sort of opposing powers, and then they slowly become friends and then much more.)
Sharon Agathon 'Athena'/Karl Agathon 'Helo' (The only couple I ship that actually got a happy ending... at least they did. I love how throughout the entire show, they stay true to each other, and their love never wavers.)
Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices
Alec/Magnus Bane (I kind of fell in love with these two right from the start. They are just so ridiculously adorable together.)
Clary/Jace (I also started shipping these two from the start. There relationship has certainly had plenty of ups and downs, but I think they really belong together.)
Tessa/Will (I know a lot of the books are about how Tessa loves both Jem and Will, and I know she kind of ends up with both, but I think she truly belongs with Will. Despite him being a jerk at first, due to believing he was cursed, he is clearly in love with Tessa, and I think she loves him more than she loves Jem.)
Sophie/Gideon (Oh my goodness. From the moment it was hinted at that Gideon might like Sophie, I started shipping like crazy. I just love how well they compliment each other. Gideon is so sweet and caring, which I think Sophie needs, but she's also strong and confident and can tell him off for doing idiotic things like hiding scones under his bed just so he can see her.)
Cecily/Gabriel (First of all, I just love how Will hates Gabriel so much, and then he ends up marrying Will's little sister. But also, these two are just so good together. Gabriel can be kind of full of himself sometimes, and he's stubborn, but Cecily's just as stubborn, and I think they bring out the best in each other.)
Mulan/Shang, Mulan (I never thought myself to be much of a Disney shipper-- I don't read or write Disney fanfics, I just enjoy the movies. But I recently re-watched Mulan for the umpteenth time, and it hit me: she and Shang are so absolute perfect and I NEEEED to explore them through fanfic. I've read some great ones, and they'e on my short list for future stories.)
Jamie/Claire, Outlander (Oh boy. First of all, JAMMF is the most perfect man to ever exist. And everything about this ship is perfect. It's steamy, it's sweet, it's angsty... I've only seen the TV show, but their relationship kills me in the best way possible. Also, the way he looks at her. And the way he calls her 'Sassenach.' Ughhh so perfect. They obviously have a very deep love for each other, one strong enough to withstand anything and have I said yet how perfect they are?)
Abbie Mills/Ichabod Crane, Sleepy Hollow (Ichabbie all the way. Katrina is boring and useless. Abbie and Ichabod have such a deep level of friendship, I think it really strays closer to 'soul mate' territory. They are each other's most important person, and even if Ichabbie never becomes canon, I am okay with long, crushing hugs, sharing meaningful moments, and being BFFs/soul mates. But, really, Ichabbie should be canon because they are perfection.)
Sarah Manning/Paul Dierden, Orphan Black (I shipped them from the start. I loved how Paul slowly fell in love with Sarah, and how even though he was Beth's handler, he turned in order to protect Sarah. He has always protected her, everything he does is for her. And when he finally tells her that it was never Beth that he loved... gaahh. AND THEN HE DIED. I am still not over that. I never will be.)
Abby/McGee, NCIS (They are just adorable together. I will always love their flirtatious banter and their adorable relationship. I don't care if they're not actually a couple, they SHOULD be!)
Susan Pevensie/ Prince Caspian, Narnia (I know they're not really a couple... but that kiss at the end of the movie! They're so good together!)
Tidus/Yuna, Final Fantasy X and X-2 (So amazing. From the moment Tidus meets Yuna, his life changes, as does hers. And they slowly fall in love, and it's so beautiful. They compliment each other so perfectly.This ship breaks my heart a bit, due to the ending, but at least there's X-2.)
Rikku/Gippal, FFX/-2 (Okay, there's not much to go on with them, but I think they have a little something going on between them... maybe it's just my overactive shipper imagination, but I don't think so.)
Paine/Nooj, FFX-2 (Either I'm reading into things way too much, or it's hinted at. I just think that there's something between them, and they'd be good together.)
Rogue/Wolverine, X-Men (I love them together. Who cares about the age difference? It doesn't really matter much, and they're obviously extremely close. I also happen to think that Wolverine's concern over Rogue isn't just because he promised to protect her, but because he loves her. I mean, at the end of the first X-Men movie, it was so obvious that Wolverine loves Rogue! They are just so freakin' perfect together.)
Haku/Chihiro(Sen), Spirited Away. (I was terrified of Spirited Away when I was a kid, but when I re-watched it recently, I was suspired by how much I fell in love with this couple. Chihiro risks everything to save Haku, and he does everything to protect her in the spirit world. Although the ending of the movie saddens me a little, I have faith that they'll make good on their promise to each other, and meet again. I also might partially love them because I have a huge crush on Haku. Yes, I know he's a fictional anime character who is too young for me. No, I don't care in the slightest.)
Zuko/Katara, Avatar: The Last Airbender (So... I recently discovered my love for this ship. I was never super fond of Katara/Aang, even though I tried to like it, 'cause it's canon, and I didn't ship anyone else. But then I was re-watching Avatar, and I realized how amazing Zutara is as a ship. SO AWESOME.)
Korra/Mako, The Legend of Korra. (They are so fantastic together. I started shipping them together practically from the first moment they were on screen together. Their short-lived )
Cammie/Zach, Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter. (Zach is SO much cooler than Josh. He's kind of really awesome. And I love him and Cammie together. Also... "Zach... where did you go? When you went looking for me?" "Crazy. I went crazy." I MEAN HOW CAN YOU NOT SHIP WITH LINES LIKE THAT.)
Kat/Hale, Heist Society by Ally Carter. (Another really great pairing. First of all, Hale is kind of hot... um... yeah... I don't fall in love with fictional characters, why do you ask? Also, Kat and Hale just seem really, really, extremely great together. They have fantastic flirtatious banter.)
Fire/Brigan, Fire by Kristin Cashore. (Yeah, I totally fell in love with them. How could I not? I love how they start out with Brigan hating Fire and blaming her for her father's actions, and Fire not trusting anyone. And then slowly, Fire earns his trust by saving his life, and it morphs into a kind of friendship, and they fall in love in such a beautiful way.)
Couples I do NOT ship in any shape, way or form:
The Doctor/Amy/Reinette/Joan/Astrid/River Song/Martha/Donna/Clara/anyone other than Rose. (Long rant short[ish-- okay, not short at all, but it's short for me when it comes to this topic, okay?, I ship Doctor/Rose, so anyone else with the Doctor is just not okay. I don't care if the Doctor snogged Mme de Pompadour in an out of character episode, or if he fell for Joan when he was human, or if he also weirdly kissed and seemed to fall for Astrid in another kind of OOC moment! Or that he's technically married to River Song. I refuse to accept any of it. The Doctor will always love Rose, end of story.)
Usagi/Seiya (Usagi and Mamoru are perfect together! Seiya is wrong for Usagi, Usgai will always love Mamoru! However, I also hate fics which hate on Seiya, especially ones where Seiya rapes Usagi. [Seriously, why are there so many of those?] That would never happen, Seiya cares for Usagi deeply, and although she doesn't love him, they share a deep bond of friendship.)
Inuyasha/Kikyo (I'm not a Kikyo hater. I feel bad for her, but I feel like Inuyasha and Kikyo were in love 50 years ago, and that was their time. Now Inuyasha's in love with Kagome, and while she's the reincarnation of Kikyo, they're quite different people.)
Sesshomaru/Rin (they'd maybe be cute if Rin was around 10 years older. However, she isn't, she's a little girl, and Sesshomaru is an adult. CREEPY. Even fics where she's grown up I find a bit creepy, as he sort of helped raise her. At the very least, he looked after her and cared for her when she was a child, so romantic fics seem a bit squicky to me. However, Rin/Sesshomaru parent/child fics are ADORABLE.)
Kennedy/Willow (Okay... let me start by saying I really don't like Kennedy. That's the main problem I have. I find Kennedy to be whiny, bratty and kind of a bitch. She has absolutely NO respect for Willow's feelings. She cannot respect the fact that Willow is still grieving over Tara's death. She also cannot respect the fact that Willow turned evil and lost all self control, and she's scared of becoming that way again. Kennedy makes light of it, and just tells Willow to let go, when Willow is clearly uncomfortable with it. Ugh.)
NON-ROMANTIC pairings I love:
Ziva/Gibbs (father/daughter) NCIS. (I just love this relationship. It's touching, it's sweet, it's complicated, it's everything. That one scene where Ziva tells Gibbs that he's the closest thing she has to a father kind of makes me cry. Aaannnd when Ziva helps Gibbs recover his memories in the season 3 finale when she's telling him about how Ari killed Kate and she killed Ari, and then breaks down crying in his arms. SO MANY TEARS.)
Abby/Gibbs (father/daughter) NCIS. (They are just adorable. I don't know how else to describe how much I love their father/daughter relationship. It's just adorable. Also, you can tell how much Gibbs loves her in a paternal way, because he's willing to drop his coffee if he thinks she's in danger.)
Spock/Kirk (bromance) Star Trek. (I've only seen the two new movies, the Star Trek: 2009 series. But they have an epic bromance. I don't ship them romantically, but what they have is more than a friendship. It's a fantastic bromance.)
Usagi/Chibiua (mother/daughter) Sailor Moon. (I know Usagi is Chibiusa's mother, but that's in the future. I don't meant Neo-Queen Serenity/Chibiusa mother/daughter, I mean Usagi/Chibiusa mother/daughter. There's small bits in the anime where Usagi really shows motherly affection towards her future daughter, and it's the sweetest thing ever. I love fics which explore that.)
Sesshomaru/Rin (father/daughter) Inuyasha. (As I mentioned before, romance between these two creeps me out, given that Rin is a child. And even if fics with romance between them take place when she's grown up, Sesshomaru kind of raised her, which still makes it creepy. But I think Rin is largely, if not entirely, responsible for transforming Sesshomaru into a better person/demon. He truly grows to love and care for her, and when she dies temporarily in the Final Act, it's clear how very upset by it he is.)
About me as a writer:
I'm a fan of many different TV shows, movies and books. I have many half-formed ideas and plots rolling around in my head, which I hope to one day turn into stories, but for now I'm focusing on what I've already started. I'm also working on not one but two novels, and I have a kind of busy life, so please be patient if/when I suck at updating. I promise I haven't forgotten or abandoned the story, and I will do my best to update as soon as I can.
I also love hearing from people who read my writing, or just share similar interests, so always feel free to shoot me a PM to ask me something, or just say hi.
Things I like in stories I read:
Kick-ass female heroines
And also, pairings where they supposedly hate each other but would be absolutely devastated if anything happened to one another. THIS JUST KILLS ME. Alternatively, stories where they're best friends and eventually fall in love are also fantastic. But basically, if you have the above in your story, I will likely fall in love with it.
"... And every time I see two girls sinking into pliés at the barre, I think of us." My Sisters Keeper
"The people and the friends that we have lost, or the dreams that have faded... never forget them." Final Fantasy X
"I think it's a matter of love-- the more you love a memory the stronger and stranger it becomes." Vladimir Nabokov
"You don't have to be awake to cry." My Sisters Keeper
"That tiny loss of rhythm, that hollow calm, that utter loss." My Sisters Keeper
"You don't love someone because they're perfect. You love them in spite of the fact that they're not." My Sisters Keeper
"You're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love 'til it kills you both. You'll fight and you'll shag and you'll hate each other 'til it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends. Love isn't brains, children, it's blood. Blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it." Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
THE DOCTOR: "How long you gonna stay with me?" ROSE: "Forever." Doctor Who
"You listen to me. I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I'd prefer you didn't. Don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker, I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong, bloody calls. A hundred plus years and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of-- you. Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say I love you it's not because I want you, or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are. What you do. How you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength, I've seen the best and the worst of you, and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy."

"I could tell my heart each time it isn't love, you're just some guy. There's nothing there and what I feel is in my head, it isn't real. But I can't deny, I can't even try, 'cause I know inside, butterflies don't lie." Butterflies Don't Lie, Kaci

"You drop a coin into the sea and shout out 'Please come back to me!' You name your child after your fear, and tell them 'I have brought you here.' The scary part, the aftershock, the moment it takes to fall apart. The time we have, the task at hand, the love it takes to destroy a man. The ecstasy, the being free, that big black cloud over you and me, and after the upward fall, and... were we angels after all?" The Night Starts Here by Stars
I have about a billion more, but this is getting really long. Kudos to anyone who's read all of this, and if you haven't, I can't really blame you, I do have a bit of a tendency to ramble.
Basically, I was just thinking of some of my favorite quotes, and I decided to share them. These quotes all mean something to me, whether they're inspirational, advice, or just something I like for some unexplainable reason, they all mean something to me. I hope that whoever is reading this will feel the same way. :)

ATTENTION DOCTOR WHO FANS!!!
I was reading this excellent fanfic which was exploring the whole Martha-is-the-Dark-Lady thing from early season 3. Well, in that story, Martha asks the Doctor if he has a favorite sonnet, and he replies 109. For those of you unfamiliar with Shakespeare, here it is. It's perfect for the Doctor and Rose!
O, never say that I was false of heart,
One last thing... I got the following in a chain email, and normally I hate chain mail, and don't pass it on, but this one's really sweet, and it always makes me feel better if I'm having a bad day.
1. At least 2 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. If not for you, someone may not be living.
8. You are special and unique.
9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
11. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likey turned your back on the world.
12. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get, but if you believe in yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it.
13. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.
14. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.
15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.
