Author has written 3 stories for Dragonriders of Pern series, Valdemar universe, and Scrapped Princess.
...caelique cupidine tractus
altius egit iter...
'And enamoured of the paths of heaven, he took the higher way...' (Ovid Metamorphoses)
Icarus/Icaros/Ikaros - It's the same person.
I'm thinking of Icaros as a metaphore for inspiration/creativity. And it's RISING not FALLING - going to ignore THAT part of the story for now!
If you want to know more about me, my favourite book it The Lord of the Rings but I would never presume to write fanfic in that catagory...I also like Guy Gavriel Kay...C.J. Cherryh...Lynne Flewelling...Mercedes Lackey...
Favorite anime are Scrapped Princess, Haibane Renmei, Full Metal Alchemist, Gankutsuou...etc.
Oh and I love getting reviews (but then, who doesn't?)
Magic's Path: This is my alternative version for Magic's Pawn by Mercedes Lackey, because Tylendel's death was too upsetting. However, I enjoyed the book otherwise - very moving - and so I have kept things intact up to that very moment, and there are hints of the book in the dreams that plague Vanyel.
Explanation/ apology for shortness of chapters: Short chapters alow me to update more regularly and help me keep track of what I've done. Sorry if it can be dissappointing or awkward!
Magic's Path: Yay! New chapters!!
Let's hope it doesn't take me as long between chapters in future. It really shouldn't. ;P
Near the end of 2009 Icaros Rising passed away. Though she is gone, through her writing and the people whose lives she has touched, she will live on.
