Author has written 14 stories for Deltora Quest, Dragon Age, and Merlin.

"Platinum. It's like gold only better...gold is just tacky... :)"

Well My name is Emma and I like Reading and writing (Shock Horror).

I don't abandon stories. I forget them and get excited by another one. If there are any uncompleted stories you want me to focus on, drop me a message :)

I'm also a Beta-reader, so...yeah :) I'm currently working on a request though. Yay!

Anyway, here's some irrelevant stuff about me. Hurrah

Name: Oh I have many names young one...Emma...Platypus...the list goes on!

age:17

Appearance: Short, skinny, bluish/grey eyes. My hair colour changes depending on my mood. Its a kind of blondy browny reddy mix, so I tend to claim one of these three. Usually blonde.

Subjects: English, Drama, German, Science. I love medieval History, but otherwise find it quite boring.

Personality: I suppose I'm quite shy, with a dry sense of humor. I can be quite cutting when i want to be. I appreciate well used sarcasm. I can come across as quite cynical in many respects.

Fave animal:
Cats. My ambition is to be a crazy cat lady. (Ok fine it isn't really *eye roll*)

Nationality: British- I used to have a nice accent, but it seems to have gone away . Sad. Ah well. It's a very high voice though. I hate it.

Location: Mostly merrie olde England, and summers with my gran in bonny Scotland. More specifically In front of the computer

Music: Lady Gaga,(oddly enough) The Beatles. Abba. Muse. Lotor-esque sopranos. To be specific, I like all sorts, except rap. Rap Sucks. I don't want to be told by a guy with his trousers on back to front that I should go out and kill a pig. Skyrim Soundtrack. Two steps from hell.

Movies: Men In Black,1 and 2, Anything Shrek, The Lord of The Rings, anything Peter Jackson. James Cameron's Avatar. American Beauty. Robin Hood: Prince Of theives. (I'LL CUT YOUR HEART OUT WITH A SPOON!) Any of the Monty Python movies.

TV Show: Merlin, Mock the Week, QI, Top Gear. Blackadder :) In fact, most of those 80s British sitcoms. T'was a golden age for all. Monty Python

Places: I actually hate Scotland as a location, great views and all, but it rains 6 days out of 7. Give me tropics please!

Hobbies: Reading and writing, Playing the guitar. Acting. Button Mashing.

Webstuff: A Very Potter Musical. Manwithoutabody's Absolutely AWESOMELY HAMMY dramatic readings. The Guild. Yahtzee.

Genre: In fanfiction- I go for romance, because really, what else is fanfic for besides pairings? :D

Plays: Joseph. Blood Brothers. Hairspray

Food: Pizza. I also love Mexican food. On Saturday's I work part-time in a cafe, and I've taken to Paninis for lunch. Delish!

Games: Most RPGs, Including The Dragon Age series and The Elder Scrolls. I am partial to a little bit of Online FPSing- although their fanbases can charitably described as 'Lively'

Books: Deltora Quest The Lord of the Rings

Fave Quotes:

'Help! I've been kidnapped by a monster whose trying to relate to me!'- Artie

I didn’t say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame you- anon

Wafer-Thin Mint?- John Cleese

And Call off Christmas!- Sheriff Of Nottingham

Isabela: I’m more likely to be shanked in a bar than eaten by an abomination. You can hear those coming from a mile away. "Grr. Argh!" "Oh, is that an abomination coming to eat us? We should get out of here!"
Anders: Abominations don't go "Grr. Argh."
Isabela: They don't? I should rethink the whole thing, then.

"Get Away From Her You Bitch!"- Ripley

'Yes, Swooping Is bad'- Alistair

'Dreams Come In many forms. Some Good, some bad, some very realistic. Even the ones that feels very real'-Jenna Silverblade

'As cunning as a fox who was just elected professor of Cunning at Cambridge university?' Blackadder

Please don't annoy the writer. She may put you into a book and kill you.

Hi and welcome to the first, and probably only book review I'll ever do.' Asonginmyhead.

'Shut Up Merlin'-Arthur

Sing it with me now! 'You're the voice try and understand it! Make and noise and make it clear! Woah-a-oh-a-oh-oh!'

' There's only one way to find out! FIGHT!!' Harry Hill

'WHY CAN’T I JUST BE NORMAL? IT’S A F* CURSE!' Ebony 'Enoby' Darkness dementia Raven way.

Fave Pairings: Mostly, I like traditional Pairings, but I won't say No to slash ;)

Dont mention: Among many other things... Games not autosaving at the worst possible times, Bad Grammar. Twilight (Doesn't help my friends are literally RABID 'Team Edwards'.) Laugh Tracks. Militant Environmentalists (I'm sure we can have a nice long argument). Militant Atheist. Militant Christians, House of Night.

Authors
: Terry Prattchet, J,K Rowling Emily Rodda, JRR Tolkein

Ambition: to publish a book/series etc and see it being wrote about here. Oh and to get an actual Valentine card.

Back Up Plan: Become a Video Game Beta Tester. Seriously. Best. Job. Ever. (being paid to play video games? C'mon, that's my Idea of heaven!) Otherwise, software designer. Are you seeing a pattern forming?

Thanks for reading about my sad,sad life.! If you want to, have a look at my stories and fave authors (which I assume you do, since you will have just read through all the rambling crap above :).) . I recommend HomeSweetHomicide13 and Asonginmyhead for Deltora Quest, they're both pretty good. Bit of an understatement, but there you go.
?

What Am I Focusing On? Due To my large number of uncompleted stories, I've decided to prioritse. If one of your favoured stories is not on here, Don't Panic! I will get round to updating it soon, it just isn't high on my List Of Things To Do.
1) Defunct
2) Who Do You Think You Are?

Unwritten Ideas:

Oh, and if any artists want to draw a scene/Character from any of my fanfics, go ahead! Just send me the link and I'll post it up here. The only thing i want is that you credit me on the description/Character. I look forward to any artwork

Thanks to Meerkatgirl13, for this picture of Branwyn! Link

I have a deviantart account under the name PlatinumGal (le gasp!). I'm not much of an Artist, but I enjoy my little doodles. It Can Be found Here.
I'm also on youtube, under PlatinumgalReviews, in which I intend to post reviews about various things. ^^ It Can be Found Here.
And, more recently, I've started a Livejournal account in which I spork terrible fanfictions. Thus far, only one is completed. Why not join me in my little den of spite? We'll laugh at mediocrity together

My Favorite list is a VERY exclusive list :) I recommend reading any of them. Its like the Platinum Seal Of Approval :D

To my Readers:
I LOVE REVIEWS! if you read my stories please drop a message on what you like/dislike. It only takes a minute, Anyone can do it :) Ta :D
