12/10/2012: Hey guys! I now have an account at Archive of Our Own (A03). I'm probably going to be posting there first, but I will continue to post series I've started here. But go read my stuff over there, it's an awesome site. My A03 name is woodswanderer.
Hey. I live near our wonderful Nation's Capitol, which is not nearly as exciting as it sounds. New stories will come slowly, if at all. Thank you for bothering to read my words.
I am a Latin Geek, a theatre nerd, and someone who, like most fanfiction writers, is a slave to the voices in her head. I find computer science very fun. I think the reason I like Star Trek, Doctor Who and Torchwood so much is that they allow me to think about the universe and science and let me be scientific and technical. I am also a literal learner, which means that while I understand that there is a theme, and I can tell you what lines and paragraphs display it, I have no idea what it is or how to put it into words.
I have been called:
-"I'm all clever and can design things" girl
Symbolism in not everywhere, despite what your English teacher might insist otherwise. Sometimes a boat is just a boat, a fountain is just a fountain, and a guy who doesn't talk is just a plot device.
Requiescat in pace Steve Jobs, your vision will be missed.
Here's some opinions: (of mine)
Martial Arts is not a sport. It is a discipline.
I am a proud supporter of gay rights. Love is love and no one should be able put limits on it.
I answer every review I get on one of my stories. I think that if someone takes the time tell me what they think then they deserve a response. I started doing this after several authors answered my reviews, and it was very nice to know an author values my input. If you're reading this and I didn't answer your review, it's because I got distracted and in the craziness of email, forgot. I'm sorry. You rock.
9/14/2012 Hey everyone! So, I'm in college. Which is fun. And I've been writing some stuff, but nothing really definite. Bits and pieces of stuff. I've got a Torchwood oneshot planned out, I just have to make myself sit down and write the boring stuff. Maybe in class later. Maybe not. I started writing some bits of the next Narnia piece, but I don't know how they fit together yet. We'll see how that goes. I wrote a large part of what I thought would be the follow up to Thunder Over Brooklyn, but what I have written deals largely with a OC. I'll probably finish it and post it anyway, but maybe not as the follow up. We'll see. SMILES! -CYI

My friend made me a card since I'm graduating. She drew me in a fluffy wedding dress standing in a Gazebo with my prince Charming. We had this conversation:
Mel: "I didn't know what hair color you like, so I just put dark hair."
Me: "You got it right, I usually do go for dark haired guys. Well, there is one exception, but you know."
Mel: *Think think think* "Oh yeah!" *laughs* "There is one!" She's the one I told about my unrequited light haired crush.
A friend helps you find your prince. A best friend kidnaps him and brings him to you.
