Poll: Because of the popularity of Forsaken, my muse has had this idea for a couple of months now, and I've wondered about it as well. The question is: do you feel there should be a collection of one-shots dealing with character back-story/extra scenes? Vote Now!
Author has written 30 stories for Pokémon, Ninja Turtles, WALL-E, Kirby, Looney Tunes, Digimon, How to Train Your Dragon, Whisper of the Heart, Higurashi/Umineko series, Wreck-It Ralph, Angel Beats!/エンジェルビーツ, and Caillou.
No matter my age, my friends, my family, or the extent of my writing abilities, I will thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all that I have. He is the ultimate best friend, and I pledge to honor Him in what I write.
I have graduated from college, and so I will be looking for work. I'll update whenever I have the time, thank you for being patient.
It is done. Chapter twenty of Forsaken is now officially up. It is indeed one of the most satisfying moments of my life.
As a bonus, I have gone back and edited the older chapters to match my current writing style. The chapters are still the same, but in some of them, I have added things that may be to your liking.

Joke of the Moment
A child asked his father, "How were people born?"
So his father said, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on."
The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, "We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now."
The child ran back to his father and said, "You lied to me!"
His father replied, "No, your mom was talking about her side of the family."
Hallo, strangers, or not-so-strangerly folks! Welcome to the humble abode of lilpurplebird. Normally, I'm the type who is shy, and doesn't like to talk much, but whatever comes out of the top of my head, will come here. So--!
Height: 4' 10 3/4''
Hair: blonde, curly
# siblings: Five younger brothers
Habits: reading, singing, drawing, writing, bothering my brothers, playing video games
Pop/rock; metal; soundtrack music
Hmm, hard to say. I'm a bookworm :3.
Bill Cosby ; Jeff Allen ; Tim Hawkins ; Emo Phillips
Being a Film and Video Production graduate, it's rather normal for me to have a list of movies. However, the list has gotten too big for me to remember them all, so it suffices to say I just love movies, even though animated movies are my big favorites.
Super Smash Brothers series ; Diddy Kong Racing ; Metroid Prime (okay, I watched my brother play it, but it was awesome) ; Mario Party ; Super Paper Mario ; Pokémon games that I've played and deemed awesome (e.g. main series, Puzzle League, Pokémon Stadium, Mystery Dungeon)
I watch a lot of anime. So I'll just list the amount of total anime I've completed thus far:
Anime completed: 1,810
Volumes total: 282
any 90's cartoon played on KidsWB (rest in peace) ; Looney Tunes ; Duck Dodgers ; Darkwing Duck ; Invader Zim ; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) ; Xiaolin Showdown ; Dragons: Riders of Berk ; Jackie Chan Adventures ; SpongeBob Squarepants (up until the seventh season, give-or-take a few) iMucha Lucha! ; Disney
The X-Files ; Monk ; Psych ; Gilligan's Island ; Happy Days ; Blackadder (it counts, I suppose) ; Big Bang Theory
PLAYS I HAVE SEEN:
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat ; Phantom of the Opera (starring Tim Martin Gleason as the Phantom) ; Father of the Bride ; Beauty and the Beast
1. I have Asperger's Syndrome (screw what the APA says!). For those who may not know, let me explain as simple as possible. Basically, this is why I prefer anime over cartoons (though I love animation in general). This is why the Japanese language captivated me so in high school. This is why I took a 3D animation class. This is why the only Looney Tune character I like drawing the most is Marvin the Martian. This is why I don't socialize well with others. This is why my vocabulary and way of speaking is strange. And... other things... I suggest you look it up. Heh... sorry folks. I tried.
2. Contrary to Asperger's, I have hyperlexia. No, it doesn't mean I'm hyper all the time
3. You may have noticed I'm short for my age. I've been short my whole life. And skinny. I once squeezed through a locked gate just to get on the other side of the house because I was locked out (or something, can't remember). The space wasn't very big, just to let you know. I don't know HOW I did it. And because of this, I'll live longer than most of you. Don't ask me why.
4. I bet you were freaking out over how many siblings I have. I'm sure you thought that a) I'm a Mormon, b) my parents love kids, or c) some other weird thought. Unless it's really, really out of the question or something, the answers are yes to both of them. And I'm proud, and happen to actually like my little, annoying brothers.
5. The two youngest brothers have autism. Thus, half of us are on the autistic spectrum. It must say something, doesn't it? In fact, we believe Grandma is on the spectrum, which would probably explain why we get along/are alike.
6. Please expect me to be weird. I always have, and always will.
7. My preferable topics of writing are:
Friendship: I've had experiences with friends that have affected my life. Thus, I tend to position a storyline around in this category.
Family: Family is very important in my life. You'll see this often.
Romance: I have no love life. The one you'll always expect some form or another. *goes to count romance stories*
Comedy: From the Asperger's, because I'm weird. After posting quite a few humor stories up, I am pleased to say people at least laugh at my sense of humor (I had worried over this for some reason). And I'll admit, I suppose many, if not all, of my stories have humor in them. So yay.
8. I am a very nice person, so you won't get anything bad from me. I'm lenient, and is not easily hurt by people who are angry with me (although I don't tolerate flamers, they make me laugh). There does come a blue moon, however, where the volcano inside of me erupts. It's more contained now than it was in my elementary school days. Seriously, you compare my childhood years to my teenage years, you'd be "What the freak happened? Oh yeah, maturity xD!"
9. Just because I'm Mormon doesn't mean my stories will be happy and unicorn-like, and mainly for small children.
10. Err... my catchline is "Hey Twinkie!" with a very deep voice. (Emphasize included.) Next catchline has to be "Please be kind to midgets" and "nyaa".
11. I'm a member on three other sites. On Serebii, I'm known as Kutie Pie. On Deviantart, I'm Kokoro to Yume. On YouTube, I'm KumoriGurasu. On MyAnimeList, I'm Lil-Bird. I'm sure you've seen me around :B.
12. I drew my avatar myself using PhotoShop CS4. Am still currently messing around with it.
13. I don't like to admit things like this (especially since they made me), but I have two brothers on the site: The Unknown Twinkie, and Sergeant Daniel. They have gotten better over the years. For the most part.
14. I am most certainly going to be more religious in my stories when the plot calls for it. Yup.
15. I have that weird feeling my grandparents were fattening me up... Kidding, I love my grandparents, I really do. I was just being spoiled when I was living with them. *pokes muffin of a belly questionably*
16. My username is an old nickname of mine from when I was in elementary school. It made sense at the time, and it still kinda does. Point is, the name stuck.
17. On July 10th, 2014, I graduated from Collins College with a Bachelor's in Film and Video Productions.
A-A-A-And that's all I can think of at the moment. I now leave you with a list of current/future chapter fics. Remember, please be kind to midgets!

Despite their failure, Arceus gives them another chance, but at a cost: in the life before, they agreed to become mortal again should they have failed to uphold their duties. Along with that, they are commanded to repopulate and replenish the earth. As the majority of the Legendaries are male, frequent arguments are made as to who would get "first dibs", mainly for Mew because of her ability to create many species.

Only these aren't broadcasted to the public.
Currently on: chapter four
Status: Work in progress; indefinite hiatus, may be rewritten

Just watch what you say.
