Age: Early thirties
I love stories, from folklore to mythology to novels, and I like learning about other people and different cultures.
I'm fascinated with pythons and cheetahs and am a strong believer in the value and importance of literacy. Some genres I favor are fantasy, historical fiction, and drama. I like watching plays, especially musicals, and enjoy cute, feel-good cartoons.
I hate intolerance and censorship, even if I don't necessarily agree with what's being said or believed. I think it's paramount that everyone should be able to express themselves in their own way so long as I can avoid what I find distasteful or offensive.
I'm idealistic and place a high value on intelligence. I fear confrontation and quarreling and am more apt to write a letter if I have a problem with someone than to talk face-to-face. It's just as well, since I'm rather blunt verbally. I can be uncertain and insecure about my opinions if I'm not comfortable disagreeing with you, and that goes back to my hatred of fights. Generally, I'm mellow, content, easy-going, and relaxed, though I can also have an explosive temper and I never forget a wrong, even if I may still be able to be civil. People have also called me stubborn. I have no clue where they get that idea.
A Note About the Star Wars EU
While I have used Wookieepedia and its references to the EU in my fics, I do not personally accept it as canon. To my mind, the EU is a bunch of glorified fanfic and thus, I don't have to consider it law. The only things I'm bound to grudgingly honor are the films and "Clone Wars" cartoon. Anything else has a take or leave policy with me. I use ideas if they work for my stories, but the same material can be denied or disregarded should I see fit as well. The only EU I read was about the first ten books of Jedi Apprentice and I decided I'm not going to finish the series or read more of other people's fanon. I don't care to read about OCs and the plots introduce messy inconsistencies with the movies and even characterizations.
