Author has written 6 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
Hello! I'm Susi. I'm 13 years old and my motto is "Dork and Proud" among others XD. I'd like to say something about myself as a writer: I see a lot of different authors around the site. Some write random crack fics, some write AIM/Chat show/ characters discover fan fiction and some write funny but reused plots (like Harry Potter and friends as muggles), some write new, brilliant original plots, some write dark, deep, emotional, philosophical stories, some write lovely, romantical, humorous views at a side of a character we've never seen before. And I, I write all. Sometimes expect something deep as the Marinara Trench or as light and fluffy as a marshmallow. Other times expect something as serious as a senator or as screwy and random as Spongebob Squarepants. With me, you can never tell. If you want, go ahead and flame, but don't expect me to care. It doesn't cut deep, it just makes me think low of you. I like constructive criticism and would like to remind you that "This sucks." is NOT constructive.
About me: I can't stand most OCs! They are just too... uggh! If your OC is well developed, has faults and not one of the Big Three Children (unless your character is awesome as heck) I will probably like them. But if not then just yuck. Sorry, it's the truth. OK, now on about myself as a person! We'll, I'm a thirteen year old New Yorker, I have a twin brother and right now, a bit of an obsession with Phantom of the Opera lol!
Colors: Green and Purple
Books: I could go on for ages. Percy Jackson and the Olympians, anything by Kai Meyer or Amelia Atwater- Rhodes, Maximum Ride... just to name a minimal amount.

Scariest moment of your life? I've been in lots, probably in a car crash with my two cousins, uncle and sister. It so wasn't our fault but it was creepy because like 10 minutes before we had been talking about car accidents/ safety and my uncle said that my cousin (who was driving) was a very good driver and that we'd never crash. Then we tired pulling out in this REALLY dangerous intersection and "BAM!" we crashed right into this person who just wasn't there before (we found out later they hadn't had their head lights on)!

Do you want a hair cut? Maybe...
Are you musically inclined? Heck no! I mess up singing "Old McDonald"
Have you ever been in a fight? Yes, the opponent was a.. oh god I hate her and I would have just urrgggghhhh. But it was recess in 6th grade, and I didn't want to, like, be expelled. She had stuffed leaves down my BFF's shirt. I just about killed her, and I might have had she not run off and told the principal. I REALLY don't like her!!

LIFE IN THE 1500'S
The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be . Here are some facts about the1500s:
Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and still smelled pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.
Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water..
Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence the saying: It's raining cats and dogs.
There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house.. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence.
The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, Dirt poor. The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway. Hence the saying a thresh hold.
(Getting quite an education, aren't you?)
In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme, Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old..
Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, bring home the bacon. They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat..
Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous.
Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or the upper crust.
Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a wake.
England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be saved by the bell or was considered a ...dead ringer..
And that's the truth. Now, whoever said History was boring !!
