Author has written 6 stories for Redwall, Scarlet Pimpernel, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
As one becomes less childish, one gives up childish things, including the fear of being childish.
- A personal proverb of mine, paraphrased from a quote by one of my favorite authors, C.S. Lewis.
To be truthful, I have never done one of these profile thingy-ma-bobs before. I have no MySpace account, no personal blog, nothing, and it's likely to stay that way for...well...forever, so bear with me.
My penname is the combination of my favorite Shakespeare play ever...Much Ado About Nothing...and the Shakespearian spelling of my family nickname, Nonni. (Okay, so Shakespearian spelling might be over-describing it a bit, but there's the whole "Hey nonny nonny" song in MAaN, so there you have it.) For this website, you may call me Nonny.
There are three things you absolutely should know about me. First, I am female. That should be pretty self-explanatory.
Second, I am Catholic, and so my stories will be written from a Catholic perspective. I'll try not to offend any atheists or people of other religions, and if a character is not Catholic I will not try to make them Catholic if the conversion would make them an unbelievable character, but the perspective will still be there, even in universes where religion does not exist.
Third, I have a really weird sense of sarcastic humor. If you could see my face, you might laugh with me (doubtful), but on paper some things I inadvertantly type might sound off-collar. If that happens, just know I'm not out to offend anyone, and give me a weird look (or the written equivalent) and I'll try to explain whatever reasoning I might have (if any).
Here is my Redwall alter-ego for FF.net, for those who might wish to use it in their fanfics. Ask my permission if you want to use her, though; I'm sure you will, but I'm just paranoid this way.
Age: Late teens
Pelt: Golden-brown, like any other fieldmouse
Eye color: Blue, but wears glasses. Not geeky glasses, chic glasses - in that, at least, she has style.
Special Talent: Nonny can truthfully say she has a beautiful singing voice, because she had to work her tail off to obtain the technique required for that singing voice. Does not sing much, however.
Personality: Bookwormy type. A bit nerdy, with a dry wit that produces even drier sarcasm. Bit of a know-it-all at times. Quiet, but, in certain moods, likes to get on others' nerves. Perfectionistic to a fault. Loyal friend when it counts and when it doesn't count. Believes that it is possible to be mature, and still love fairy tales, fancy dresses, and the color pink. A lover of opera, Broadway songs, classical music, and anything else besides rap and heavy metal. Often seen in pretty (or pink-colored) clothing, which belies some rather violent tendencies.
Weapon: A wizard staff that looks like Gandalf the White's staff, only it's pink. Generally does everything Gandalf's staff does.
Stories by other authors she appears in: Popular, by Kelaiah, The Mossflower Mary Sue Showdown, by Oreramar, Revenge of the Three, by Adder of the Pit, and, (as a name on a hit list) The Sueslayer, by The Sueslayer.
I am not an artist, nor do I claim to be. However, a few friends have been kind enough to draw pictures of my characters. Thanks to these artists:
I do, in fact, have a DeviantArt account here: However, as you can see, it's not because I like to draw, or because I'm particularly good at art. The art I have favorited, however, is worth looking at.
You know what really cracks me up? Seeing someone wearing that black T-shirt that reads "You laugh because I'm different. I laugh because you're all the same," and knowing that half of the other students in school have the exact same shirt. Copy and paste this if you believe that wearing something because you like it and you look good in it will accomplish more in the way of proving your uniqueness than wearing something simply because the rebellious crowd at your school is wearing it. Pink rocks, baby!
If life hands you melons...you might be dyslexic.
