(02/03/2011) I got a LiveJournal now. Check it out if you want.
Hi! Until 3 days ago I was going by the name of Ines the Windbender, but the truth is I've left this site for an entire year (and more) because school and social life were (and still is) killing me. However, although now i'm in senior year and soon I'll have to take the maturity exam, I came back to Fanfiction.net 'cause i want some free time for myself and I wish to achieve a personal goal that i had wrote here two years ago: to write a fanfic. Years have passed, now I turned 19, and when I registered i was 16... well. i'll see what I can do.
Like I said, for 1 year and half I hadn't entered to this site, and some traits of my personality changed (but not so many, otherwise my life would much better), so when i came back here, and saw how i described myself in this profile I was like "Was I like this before?!" and after some reconsiderations, I decided to upload it and re-describe myself.
Well, that's all I can say now. Remember, I'm Italian, so forgive me if I make embarassing grammar mistakes, ok? ;)
Oh, and for my new avatar... Hooded Rogue from X-Men. I chose her cause a)she's the coolest mutant ever, hate the movie version though b)she's everything I'm not c)this is nearly my physical appearence and style of clothing I got in the real life.
The same for my new nick-name: I'm like a ghost, most of the time nobody sees me, but when they do, they think i'm weird 'cause i'm always serious, sober and I like reading and writing instead of doing what all the young people should do... in other words I'm different...
(However, I'm incredibly serious, but I love laughing. So why this? Well, mainly because I'm awful at being funny and I make obnoxious and out of place comebacks, and this always ends up with embarassing and ridicolous situations for me... but I'll try my best, okay?)
Oh, and another thing: from now on I'll try reviewing all the stories I like, although I hate doing that coz that means I got high chances of writing it with lots of grammar errors and bad spellings. But I'll do my best :)
Now the presentations:
Surname (or last name): pftt! Like I'm going to tell you!
Hair: Brown and straight (although it ALWAYS after a couple of days tends to become curly. Die, stupid humidity)
Eyes: Brown (i am so stunning, don't ya think so?), and i wear glasses
Skin: Pale (i'm not albino, but I never do sun-bathing even if it's summer. I hate beach...)
Physical: Skinny, but not too much. I'm just thin.
Age: 19, i've already tell you. By the way I'm still in high school because in Italy you end your education at the age of 19.
Nationality: I'm Italian, and I live in Italy, but I got Spanish Nationality too because my mom is Spanish and I spend holiday time in Alicante, a city near Valencia, and when I was nine I spent one year there
City: I'm not gonna tell you this obviously. But I'll say that I live in an insignificant little city in an insignificant little region in the coast, whose is not famous at all, near the south of Italy. I can't wait to go away from this town.
School: Classical High School. In Italy it's a specific High School where you study mainly Italian, Latin and English Literature, then Latin and Ancient Greek, History of Art, Phylosphy and others...
Personality: meh. I got a serious and above all weird lack of self-esteem since I was little. I'm trying to love myself, but it's hard. My soul and my body got a love-hate relationship with each other (I mean, I'm not a lesionist, if biting my nails is considered lesionism, I clean myself and occasionally make-up, but I care more about my feelings than how I appear physically to other people. I hate being somebody I'm not just because today's society says you must act in a certain way). I'm too good and I always help people, but doing so they consider me stupid and I get no respect from anybody, and I haven't the courage to rebel against them 'cause I lack of self-security, too. I need counseling, but in my town if you seek a psychologyst's help, they think you have a mental problem. In my town the mentality is still quite old. However let's put this straight: I'm not EMO! Although I believe I'm followed by bad luck I always fight back, I (almost) never give up and sit in a corner all alone. I cry sometimes, but I always move on.
Hobbies and Interests: I love reading, writing, surfing on internet, listening to music, swimming, jogging, dancing and... WATCHING MOVIES! Seriously, i'm movie addicted, beware!
Books: BOWS to Sir Terry Pratchet! I like Moving Pictures, Mort, Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad, Lords and Ladies, Carpe Jugulum; The Reaper Man; Hogfather; Guards! Guards!; Men at Arms; Feet of Clay; THE WEE FREE MEN (Seriously people, read it! It's amazing!) and lots more... then I like the Bartimeus Trilogy, Stardust; The Graveyard Book; Harry Potter; Percy Jackson and The Olympians; Louise Rennison's books; The Gates (another great book); Slam! (by Andrew Hornby); His Dark Materials series; Luciana Littizzetto's books (she's an Italian actress/comedian) and a lot more...

Music: Paramore, All Glee Music, Evanescence, Skillet, Katy Perry, Pink, Taylor Swift, Faber Drive; Avril Lavigne... but actually there aren't real artists I like, because I may love some of their songs and I may hate others... but to be honest, I like pretty old songs

Anime: Ouran Host Club; FullMetal Alchemist; Soul Eater; Naruto (I used to LOVE it, but lately Kishimoto is rushing it a little too much for my opinion...)
STORIES IN PROGRESS:
To improve my English, I decide to write some stories. But don't worry: before posting them I'll make a strict correction with my vocabulary and English text books, not like I'm doing now writing without even a online translator. Because I'm Italian, I'm a perfecionist, I help my parents with their eyeglasses workshop, my social life is in deep s°°t, and I'm in my last high school year, I'll update very very slowly, so don't ask me to hurry up and update, please. You should take a look at my life to see how busy and tired I am.
However, here are the stories i'm planning to write:
-Operation W.I.F.E. (Woman Inflames Father's Emotions) :This is story is a mix of suspense of humor. While Sector V's out for a mission abroad, a TND agent manages to steal the KND Book from the treehouse, and hours later the DCFDTL contact Rachel telling her that if she wants the book back then she has to help them to find a woman for Father. Despite the weird request she accepts and enlists Sector W's help, and while the little kids are searching for a match to the villain, she discovers that the teenager not only wasn't hired by Father or by the DCFDTL, and that he gave them the book asking for nothing, but also apparently killed himself... What's really going on? Set 2 weeks after INTERVIEWS.
-Operation I.N.V.A.S.I.O.N. (Incredible Naive Visitors Aliens Show Insinstently Obnoxious Normality): This is supposed to be a sequel of the story above, but i'm not sure yet. I started writing this one before, but a lot of new ideas came to me, another story developed in my mind and I thought it was better to post the first one before, although I still have my doubts... This one is supposed to be my most ambitious project and I don't know if I should waste time by writing the other one. However, this is basically the plot: While Sector V is dealing with their new teammate's strange and questionable behavior, Rachel one day suddenly finds an alien kid in her office. Things get more complicated when it becames clear that there's an alien invasion in progress, and it involves kidnapping kids and teens. With no support from the GKND, they need all the possible help they can get, even from the companions of Rachel's new "friend" met in the first story...
-Operation R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S. (Raw Enthusiastic Cadets Rise Uncontrollable Inefficiency by Telling Secrets): This goes parallel to my story W.I.F.E., but you don't need to read that if you don't want to. I wanted to put it there, but I figured out it was a bad idea, 'cause the themes are different from the ones in W.I.F.E. The plot is about Patton training two new cadets, but he's unaware that it's gonna be rough training them, because aside from the fact he knows they're hiding something, they behave as complete naive and crazy kids, as if they were from another planet... Yeah, the main character is Patton with Fanny appearing later on. I don't know, one day a question popped in my mind "What if Patton had to train some inefficient cadets?", then it was followed by another one "What if Patton knew about the GKND?" and finally "What if Patton had to train alien cadets?!"
-A Chance In A Million: An hilarious story starring Numbuh 74.239, Numbuh Infinity, the other science nerds of the Splinter Cell and above all, Numbuh 71.562, the unlucky kid of this fic . It's a short story of 5 chapters, and the whole fic is already written on my mind, even the ending. Incredibly, it became really important to me and I want to publish it as soon as I can.
-Still Unnamed KND Splinter Cell's Adventures: This project was born shortly after I imagined my 'A Chance In a Million' fic. It's a collection of one-shots about the science nerds of the Splinter Cell, the cover group of the Galactic Kids Next Door, must keep their group in secrecy, find some alien fugitives and being good diplomats to the GKND: and also dealing with their life issues, various troubles and their tryings to be 'less' nerds; who said it was simple being a KND scientist of a secret group? The genres are mostly humor, sci-fi, friendship and family, but they may contain angst and even tragedy.
Bartimaeus: "I wanted to wake you straightaway, but I knew I had to wait several hours to ensure you were safely recovered."
Faquarl: "Look at me now—what do you see?"

DON'T PANIC! (Hitckhiker's guide to the Galaxy)
BEST QUOTE EVER:
When you break rules, break 'em good and hard. ("Wyrd sisters")
The Creator had a lot of remarkably good ideas when he put the world together, but making it understandable hadn't been one of them. ("Mort")
'Anyway, demons always lie. Well-known fact'.
They were suckers for anything written down with more than one exclamation mark after it. ("Reaper Man")
Granny Weatherwax always held that you ought to count up to ten before losing your temper. No one knew why, because the only effect of this was to build up the pressure and make the ensuing explosion a whole lot worse. ("Witches abroad")
Cats are like witches. They don't fight to kill, but to win. ("Witches abroad")
Sam Vimes could parallel process. Most husbands can. They learn to follow their own line of thought while at the same time listening to what their wives say. And the listening is important, because at any time they could be challenged and must be ready to quote the last sentence in full. A vital additional skill is being able to scan the dialogue for telltale phrases such as "and they can deliver it tomorrow" or "so I've invited them for dinner?" or "they can do it in blue, really quite cheaply."
-- (Terry Pratchett, The Fifth Elephant)
Cheatin's all right. That's practic'ly fair. ("Witches abroad")
And philosophers didn't listen to one another. And they don't stick to the point. This probably is mocracy at work. ("Pyramids")
Fight first, talk after. That's history. ("Small Gods")
Bartimaeus: According to some, (2) heroic deaths are admirable things. I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking.
(2) Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind. (Ptolemy's Gate)
Justice is about harmony. Revenge is about you making yourself feel better. Which is why we have an impartial system. (Batman Begins)
Better to have loved and lost
We learn from history that we learn nothing from history. (George Bernard Shaw)
Sometimes you've gotta run before you can walk. (Iron Man)
Some men aren't looking for anything logical. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn. (The Dark Knight)
"My own brother, Aberforth, was prosecuted for practicing inappropriate charms on a goat. It was all over the papers, but did Aberforth hide? No, he did not! He held his head high and went about his business as usual! Of course, I'm not entirely sure he can read, so that may not have been bravery..." (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire)
"Newbie, there are just so very many ways for me to say this to you: Never; not in a million years; absolutely not; no way, Jose; not a chance, Lance; niet; negatory; mm-mm; nuh-uh; oh-oh; and of course my own personal favorite of all time, man falling off of a cliff: Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!" (Scrubs)
He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you. (Nietszche)

"To conquer fear, you must become fear." (Batman Begins)
I believe there's a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams. (Spiderman 2)
"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone." (Harriet Beecher Stowe)
"It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us." (Norman Maclean)
The encounter could create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that's a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to merely our own galaxy. (Back to the Future ")
Cold be heart and hand and bone. Cold be travelers far from home. They do not see what lies ahead, when Sun has faded and Moon is dead. (The Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers)
Ron: (in high voice) My wand. Look at my wand.
Curiosity is not a sin... But we should exercise caution with our curiosity. (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire)

Gloria: Where are the people?
Sirius Black: Brilliant, Snape - once again you've put your keen and penetrating mind to the task and as usual come to the wrong conclusion. (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban)
Of course, it is very important to be sober when you take an exam. Many worthwhile careers in the street-cleansing, fruit-picking and subway-guitar-playing industries have been founded on a lack of understanding of this simple fact.

Chloe: I want to let you in on a secret. I’m not who you think I am. In fact, my disguise is so thin; I’m surprised that you haven’t seen right through me. I’m the girl of your dreams, masquerading as your best friend. Sometimes I want to rip off this façade like I did at the Spring Formal but I can’t because you’ll get scared and you’ll run away again. So I decided that it is better to live with a lie than expose my true feelings. This is so much easier when you’re unconscious. My dad told me there are two types of girls: the ones you grow out of and the ones you grow into. I really hope I’m the latter. I may not be the one you love today but I’ll let you go for now hoping that one day you’ll find your way back to me. Because I think you’re worth the wait. (Smallville)

My Fav Poem
If you can keep your head when all about you
If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
by Rudyard Kipling
