--News--

Heyyyy you guys! :D How've you all been? I'll wait a few seconds for your answer...GOOD. I AM GLAD YOU ARE FINE. Me? I'm pretty good, too, actually! :) One thing though - I've started uni, so things are probably gonna be even slower while term's in. :I However, as usual, you'll all be getting GIGANTIC updates...my fics will be like novellas when they're done, I'm warning ya! :')


Hi hi, people! :3 You can call me Nutmeg! I'm a geeky, happy Scottish girl who fangirls with friends. Teehee... :D I like well-developed stories that don't jump the shark and bring depth to the characters involved - bringing something new to the table rather than just regurgitating plot and having boring romances without any passion or thoughtfulness. YA NEEDS YOUR THINKS, FRIEND.

My bestie is ForeverDelighted, so check her out if you have the time - no flames or I shall smash you with my caber. ...Get it? Cause I'm Scottish? N WIT SQUARE GO LIKE :D

ANYWAYYYYYYY ENJOY THE NERDINESSSSSS :3

FAVOURITE ANIME: A mix between One Piece, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Ouran Highschool Host Club.

FAVOURITE COMIC: The Walking Dead, Scott Pilgrim, and Batman as a whole. :)

FAVOURITE TV SHOW: The Walking Dead, Sherlock, Star Trek: The Next Generation. Started watching Breaking Bad lately, too, and it's pretty awesome, I have to say! Surreal to see Malcolm in the Middle's dad getting it on with his wife before going off and cooking meth...but the guy's a stellar actor, so it's all good, BITCH :D

FAVOURITE MOVIE: Oooh...I'm gonna say The Dark Knight or the original Dawn of the Dead. Or Howl's Moving Castle! Or Spirited Away! ...DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSEEEEE D:

FAVOURITE GAME: Oh, another toughie...I'd say either Persona 3:P and Persona 4 (can't choose!), Half Life 2 (plus the episodes), Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, Star Wars: KOTOR 1/2, or Psychonauts. Too many! :0

FAVOURITE BOOK: John Dies at the End by David Wong (Also one of my fav. writers at Cracked.com :D)

FAVOURITE QUOTE: “You know if you walked around the world, your hat would travel thirty-one feet farther than your shoes?” - David Wong, John Dies at the End

THANKS FOR CHECKING OUT MY PROFILE! ENJOY THE FUN TIMES THAT ENSUE, PEOPLE! :D
