I am one of four; two older siblings (both married) & one younger who lives in British Columbia.
I am an aunt of a niece and nephew both born on the same day, just five years apart. Neat, yes?
I have two cats. Jasper (orange and white) and Loki (black with white patch on his belly).
I am a lucid dreamer. I'm aware I am dreaming and thus can control what happens during my dream, like I'm writing a story. I can even "pause" the dream, to wake myself up to check the time, and return back to that same dream. It's fun!
"To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy X is the one of the few songs I can play on the piano.
I can name all 50 states alphabetically in under one minute. (I taught myself this in many down-times at work).
I own both an electric and acoustic guitar.
I hate bacon and having maple syrup on my pancakes (or in general) liquid sugar is just plain disgusting.
I am both a cat and dog person. I like snakes, sharks, and wolves too.
I currently watch: General Hospital, Survivor, MacGyver, The Magicians, Timeless, Lucifer, Arrow, The Flash, Code Black, Once Upon a Time, and Game of Thrones.
Used to watch: The OC, Castle, Secret Life of the American Teenager, and Pretty Little Liars.
Game Shows: Let's Make a Deal, Price is Right, and Wheel of Fortune.
I've once watched anime's: Naruto, Bleach, Gundam Seed, Renshin, Inuyasha.
I watch Let's Play's on Youtube.
I've visited Orlando, Florida twice, in 1995 and in 2000 for Disney World!
I've only read three series of books: Harry Potter, The Hunger Games trilogy, and the Divergent Trilogy.
Currently reading: The Count of Monte Cristo.
My first fanfiction came when I was 16. I was recuperating from back surgery (I had scoliosis) and had two-months recuperating time, and well, was bored out of my mind. The atmosphere had been of a spin-off of the Legend of Zelda series, about a fantasy-world with mythical elements, and several powerful species of human. I used it for my Writer's Craft class and passed with a low 90's grade.
I play Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasy IX and Final Fantasy X at least twice a year because I love them and never tire of them. Each of the games take less than 4 days to complete.
I once completed the entire sphere grid (including the empty nodes) for FFX out of sheer curiosity. Total game play is just over 160 hours. (it takes me just over 30 to beat the game from start to finish - this includes getting legendary weapons) Each characters have over 30,000 HP and 1700 MP. They all have their legendary weapons. And add-ons have confuseproof, break HP limit, break MP limit and HP 30% for the guys and MP 20 % for my girls. My blitzball team is high 80s. With Tidus, Brother, Wedge, Nuvy Ronso, Basik Ronso, and Nimrook on my team.
I'm a fan of the following video games:
I own a Playstation 4.
I won a Nintendo DS from playing one of those electronic games at a store called "stackers" on my second try (you gotta line up the bricks to reach the time successfully ten times without missing). So I only paid $2 for it. :) I wasn't as successful when a PSP was one of the prizes though :(
I don't have a favourite movie, I just like ALOT of them, minus westerns, documentary/nature stories, and horrors.
I love music of many genres. As such, my iTunes/iPod carries 2,332 songs ranging from video game music, other languages, instrumentals, metal, dance, covers, one-hit wonders, and even youtube artists. Just no country, death metal (growling/screaming), and reggie.
My top bands are: Jethro Tull, The Offspring, Sonata Arctica, Rise Against, Three Days Grace, Bullet For My Valentine, Skillet, My Darkest Days, Hollywood Undead, Halestorm, Blackmore's Night, and Breaking Benjamin.
I was quite the concert goer:
Bands I saw before 2008:
Writing and playing video games, and reading fanfiction :) I even do cross-stitching! (listening to music is a given - I can't write without it)
I am a fan of Draco/Hermione. When I read the books for the first time, I enjoyed Draco's snobby attitude in the CoS. My sister didn't understand how I could like him. LOL. Hermione is the only female character I enjoy, so naturally I've put them together!
I enjoy the friendship of Harry/Hermione
I am NOT a fan of Ron with Hermione, nor I am of Harry with Ginny. Sometimes I pair them up for the sake of the story, but mostly I have them with different partners. (In fact I didn't catch the whole Hermione/Ron romance when reading... lol shows how much I actually cared!)
I'm very impatient, so I will never read extremely long chapter stories (over 15,000 words) or those that are very plot driven. (remember I am not a book reader) I like simple, very easy to follow stories. I give props to those author's that can write such stories though!
I can't stand angsty stories either - the "angst" tends to last far too long than I can endure and I get so depressed, I end up dropping the story (or skip chapters to see if it does get better than read from there).
HP is also the only genre of writing I will do. I have written for my soap opera, General Hospital, but that was 10 years ago. The site was dedicated to Lulu and Logan, called Something About You. My penname was xLnL3x4xEverx.
When I am not writing, or if my muse needs a break after writing a chapter, I go on Youtube and search for new music. Or I try to write outlines for the plot bunnies running through my head, until there is a story I know I can stay with until the end.
For the stories I post, are already outlined to completion. I try not to let you wait too long for updates, but the perfectionist in me can hinder that. I try to make each chapter a fair size, but it's more the way of the muse. I usually have a "theme song" for my fics cause I'm weird like that :)
