Hello everyone! This is my profile, obviously. If you care to read it, FANTASTIC! If you'd rather scroll to the bottom to look at my stories, then that's all right by me. I just hope you have a swell time doing whatever it is you're here to do.
I think it's fair to call this "The Cutest Thing Ever"
"Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.
Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag.She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.
She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.
Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.
It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.
She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.
Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.
Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilight series.
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.
You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.
You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn't burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.
Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
Or better yet, date a girl who writes."
Quick Facts About Me
The best thing I ever learned from a teacher: If you're not proud of your work, or you don't like something, just get rid of it. It's no use keeping something in your story if you don't like it.
I like reviews and reading mail via FanFiction, so feel free contact me!
In case you didn't know, MistroStrings is my real life best friend (we're both writing the Narnia story you see below). As for another bit of information connecting with my personal life, capricorn66 is my little sister. These two help with my writing a lot, and I thank them for it every time I sit at my computer to type.
I love movies, and I love books. When my favorite books become movies, obviously I compare the two together. Something odd I find myself doing, when a book becomes a movie, is that I look at the two as different segments. They share the same name and plot line, but it's usually BASED OFF the book. So not everything has to be perfect. In fact, sometimes I like the small twists added to a movie that weren't even dwelled upon in the book. Sorry if this doesn't make much sense.
I'm the type of author who posts on a monthly basis as opposed to a weekly basis. I love writing and I love what I'm doing, it's just life and procrastination have a tendency to take control sometimes.
Soundtrack scores and Imagine Dragons are what constantly play inside my head.
I'm promising here and now that every single one of my stories will have a conclusion, even if I have to give a chapter of bullet points because life got too hectically busy (but don't worry, I do plan on writing everything out in the best way that I possibly can).
[Note: I do not own any of the characters/quotes/plot lines taken solely from a particular book and/or movie. However, I do own Evelyn (in the Pirates of the Caribbean stories), Whitaker (in the Pirates of the Caribbean stories), Laila (in the Moulin Rouge story), Alex (in the Moulin Rouge story), Niaril/Nia (in the Lord of the Rings story), Gavina (briefly mentioned in the Lord of the Rings story), and Neirin (briefly mentioned in the Lord of the Ring story). The Characters Kirian, Annette, and Margaret (in the Chronicles of Narnia stories) are owned by MistroStrings and myself.]
A Dangerous Love: Is completed...well part one is anyway ;) This story is currently under a slow revision.
A Love That Will Last Forever: My second story to be completed, and is also under revision...I hope to make these revised chapters come out quicker. Except that hasn't exactly worked out, so another slow revision is happening.
Mind the Tide: The sequel to "A Dangerous Love." It still follows the movie plot line and has finally reached its completion!
As It Goes: This story is being written by MistroStrings and myself. So if you Favorite/Alert me because of this story, make sure to do the same with her. Anyway, it follows the Narnia movie plot line starting from the film adaptation of Prince Caspian. Since both of us are also huge fans of the books, there are some references to them. THIS STORY IS COMPLETED! SEQUEL IS NOW POSTED!
Lingering Faith: A Lord of the Rings story that follows the directors cut edition of the movies. If I get ANY information wrong, please inform me in a personal message. Thanks!
What Lies Ahead: This story is being written by MistroStrings and myself. So if you Favorite/Alert me because of this story, make sure to do the same with her. This is our sequel to "As It Goes" and takes place during the Voyage of the Dawn Treader. We plan on following the movie plot line with references to the books, just as we had before.
Everlasting: The final chapter of my Pirates of the Caribbean story set. This one takes place right after "Mind the Tide" and still carries on the movie plot line. Be prepared for an emotionally gripping, intense voyage to the finish (or at least I hope that's what happens).
