"We are Americans! We don't think, we do!" - NATM 2
"Great! A knife! Now I can cut the cheese! Wait... oh." - Bobbitt

"I like what I like, and I'll like it if I like it no matter what others like or think I should like." - Me
"I can only be me. If I were them, I wouldn't be 'me'. I'd be 'them'." - Me
"'Wow,' Stephanie said, glancing at Toby from the corner of her eye, 'I'd never have pegged you as the kind of guy to like rock music.' 'Breaking Benjamin is not just rock. It's art.'" - Blade (For more, check out my Fictionpress account (RainandShadow))
"He looked at her through narrowed eyes. 'You're really weird,' he said.
'Yes,' she replied with a lopsided grin. 'Yes I am.'" – In Essence (NANOWRIMO novel for November 2014)
Shakespeare Soliloquy: Hamlet, Act 3, scene 1 (this is what I have memorized)
"To be or not to be... that is the question! Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them. To die, to sleep, no more; and by a sleep to say we end all the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consumation devoutly to be wished! To die, to sleep; to sleep perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub! For in that sleep of death what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil must give us pause."

Manga of the Month: Hana Kimi because it's one of my favorites!
Korean Drama of the Month: Secret. Now that I'm watching Kill Me, Heal Me, I want to give a nod to the main actor and actress, who also starred in Secret (also known as Secret Love). It's one of my favorite dramas. I cried a whole bunch, it gave me so many feels. I would highly recommend it if you're in the mood for a cathartic experience.

What do you like to do? A: I love drawing and writing and reading and watching movies/dramas and playing video games. I'm a big nerd, recently graduated with really high honors from university (I'm basically so close to the difference between magna and summa that I don't really think the difference matters at this point––suffice it to say the program and the announcer at graduation said different things about that). Soon I'll be off to teach in Korea, and I'm super excited!
What is your favorite thing to write about? A: This has kind of changed in the past year or so, I think. I went from writing primarily about shapeshifters to focusing more on magic and traditional fantasy, as well as a lot of urban fantasy for my novel series. Widespread societal corruption seems to be the connecting link in most of my constructed worlds.
What sorts of things do you do to pass time? A: Write. Read. Draw. Play my guitar. Dance. Watch KDramas. Listen to Kpop. Pet the cat.
Do you have any pets? A: My apartment kitty's name is Lucy, but I usually call her Didgeridoo or Didgers. I also have a bay roan (dark brown and black with white specks, for those who don't speak horse colors) Quarter Horse named Rico. My cat Taylor disappeared recently, and with the activity of coyotes being really bad in the area I assume she was snatched by one. Sadness.
What's the Word? (last update: 1/12/16)
General Update. Hey, people who still stop by occasionally (assuming you exist). So a lot has happened to me the last few years, heck, even in the last few months. I'm a graduate now, and soon will be off to Korea to begin teaching! I'm so excited, and nervous. If anyone has any experience and advice they'd like to share about life in Korea/Seoul, I'd love to hear it. Writing is something I want to get back into (well, writing something other than the books in my exorcist series... I finished the first novel and have almost finished the second in the span of a two months). Send me a message with the story you'd like me to update next. I promise that for every story mentioned I will strive to submit an update soon.
On a Cold Night. This Dragon Age II inspired story is meant to be my take on Hawke's story. It's a female Hawke/Fenris ship I guess, but the romance element isn't really going to be my only focus. It's more focused on Hawke's journey and her character. The third chapter is up, so hope you enjoy it!
Wakati Wa Majaribio. The sequel to Eusi Moyo Mhuni. Honestly I'm still a bit at a loss with this one. I'm going to need to rewrite my notes and figure out where I want to go with it. Will keep you posted.
False Shadows. Chapter three is posted as a kind of Merry Christmas present to those of you who are still interested in reading it :) Thanks for your patience.
Warriors: United. This story might need to be reworked a bit. I just feel that it's not where I want it at this point. Will keep you updated.
The Unnamed Dreamer. This story is still on hiatus until I decide if I want to continue with it or not.
Carved Glass. I've worked a bit more on the next chapter, and I predict it will be done fairly soon.
Eusi Moyo Mhuni Character: Basrun:
Always. This one-shot is about Leafpool and Crowfeather reincarnated as two ThunderClan warriors. Now that they have the chance to be together, will they take it? Read and find out!
Eusi Moyo Mhuni is officially complete! With two extra chapters, that makes 11 total! Wow! All in all I'm happy to have had the chance to write this fanfiction. Thanks to everyone who favorited/reviewed and those who continue to do so as they read!
Tale of a Shadow. I have decided to rewrite this fanfiction.
The Lament of the Stars. I have decided to scrap this fanfiction, since I lost my notes for it when my computer was stolen and the plot's too complicated to go on without them.
Thank you so much to all my reviewers/watchers/whatever else! Feedback and encouragement are what feed my creative soul!
