"There were much of the beautiful, much of the wanton, much of the bizarre, something of the terrible, and not a little of that which might have excited disgust. To and fro in the seven chambers there stalked, in fact, a multitude of dreams."

--edgar allen poe, "the masque of the red death"

I thought that I might as well buckle-down and put out a _real_ profile. I'm roughly 20 years of age. Female, and prone to fanatic, obsessional tendencies when I really, really like something.

It happens quite often, actually.

Fav. Anime/Manga:

COWBOY BEBOP. There are no words to describe how much I love this series. It's full of goodness on so many levels. Mmmm. Disfunctional characters.

KODOMO NO OMOCHA. One word. Kurata Sana. She's awesome. I don't normally like bubbly, exuberent characters, but her I like. She's tenacious without being stubborn or selfish, and she blunt without being hurtful.

DIGIMON [01, 03, and 04. 02 never happened]. Okay. It is based on those horrid little nanopet-things (shudder). It's poorly animated. It's story lines are contrived. And has the potential for as much angst and drama as any series out there. Plus, it has Mimi, the Pink-clad. 'Nough said.

PARADISE KISS. Uhh . . . Shut up. I'm allowed my vices. Aren't I? Aren't I?!

NAUSICAA AND THE VALLEY OF WIND. Brilliant and thought-provoking. Read it if you ever think that Anime/Manga is nothing more than stuff for nerds, kids, and introverts.

ONE PIECE. I have found a new God, and he said unto me; lo thou must grovel before my might. And I said, I will worship thee and thine, if thou will give me Roronoa Zoro and Sanji as my love-slaves. And lo, I did not recieve a reply.

Fav. Games:

FINAL FANTASY VI. Best game ever created. Granted, it had it's flaws, but they never once detracted from the sheer beauty of the characters and the story.

CRONO TRIGGER/CROSS. Damn. I've sort-of painted myself into a corner with what I just said above, haven't I? (sigh) Well, let me make an adendum to it. These two games are some of the best for any console out there. Gah! The Character development. (Mmmm. Glenn. Mmmmm.)

FINAL FANTASY IX. Despite a bit of a let down at the end (hello? Can we have a more fan-servicing wrap-up?), and some glaring plot holes, this still stands as one of the better games out there.

FF TACTICS. Blast to play. Story that leaves you alternately shrieking and goggling, and sometimes just plain flabber-gasted. This is a game that you can happily bury with you.

FINAL FANTASY X. I loved the battle system in this game. At first, I was sort of put-off by the sheer size of the sphere grid, but I got over it. Quickly.

KINGDOM HEARTS. Heh, I was honestly a little scared when I first heard that Square was teaming up with Disney for this little gem. I mean, Disney? Disney characters interacting with, say Squall, King of antisocial behavior? But I was worried needlessly, and have decided that I will never question the Square again. But no, really, this was one of those games that is just great. (And not just because the character designs for both Cloud Strife and Squall--sorry Leon--were yummie)

Fav. Books/Authors:

"His Dark Material" by Philip Pullman. I was absolutely agog when I finished the first _chapter_ of this series. Bloody Hell. Mortality, morality, and everything in-between. Can't wait for the companion volumes.

"The Snow Spider Trilogy," by Jenny Nimmo. I read this when I was, like, 12. It never stopped being just plain beautful.

Harry Potter. I love this series, though I'm just a tad disappointed with OotP. Parts read like badly concieved fanfiction, and they just sour the rest that's brilliant.

T. S. Eliot. Perhaps my all-time fav poet and essayist. Everyone, read "Portrait of a Lady" or "Preludes" now. Go. I'm waiting.

Edgar Allen Poe. Gothic modern poetry. Gotta love it.

"The Weight of Water" by Anita Shreve. Scary and sad and heart breaking.

. . . and (most of) the rest, briefly:

Mary Shelley
Percy Bysshe Shelley
DH Lawerence
Ian Rankin
Susan Cooper
CS Lewis
Ursula Le Guine
PD James
Douglas Adams
Andre Norton
Llyod Alexander
Peter S. Beagle

Fav. Movies:

THE USUAL SUSPECTS. I have a particular fondness for anything that Kevin Spacy does. He plays the Devil very, very well.

MAGNOLIA. I love P.T. Anderson. I loved this movie. I very love (shudder) the Tom Cruise character. And that's a big deal because I hate Tom Cruise.

PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE. I think that I may be one of the five people who liked this movie. It was a beautifully done portrait of people so intrinsically flawed that it nearly prevented them from being alive.

THE LION IN WINTER. Sigh, if Peter O'Toole was just a tad younger . . . Oh well. That what movies are for! But really, this is an incredible film. Richard, John, Geoff, Philip, Alice, Henery, Elinor; they are sarcastic and bitter, and angry and vengful and entirely too human.

TRAINSPOTTING. Ewan McGregor! Ewan McGregor! . . . What? You were expecting some other reason? Well . . . There was Sick Boy.

THE CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Bloody, gruesome and strangely compelling.

28 DAYS LATER. Good God. It was so beatifully done I forgot I was looking at a Zombie movie.

SPIRITED AWAY. This is a lovely story about a young sullen girl, and how she grows through trials to become a credible and caring young woman. Nicely done.

FINDING NEMO. I loved Marrlon, and Gill, and Dory, and, well, everything about this film. It, like, rocks Dude.

. . . And the others, briefly:

Vanilla Sky
the Royal Tenanbaums
The Lord of the Rings
Moulin Rouge
A Knight's Tale
The Drunken Master (or anything Jackie Chan)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Chocolate
Edward Scissor-Hands
Something Wicked This-Way Comes
the 10th Kingdom
The Princess Bride
Labyrinth
Rushmore
The Salton Sea
Alien 1, 2 & 3. Resurrection was a farce.
There are others, but I think this is good for now.

Fav. Characters:

Mimi Tachikawa [D:01]
Faye Valetine [CB]
Jet Black [CB]
Spike Spiegal [CB]
Sora [KH]
Squall Leonhart [KH/FF8]
Cloud Strife [KH/FF7]
Cid Highwind [KH/FF7]
Aeris [KH]
Terra/Tina Bradford [FF6]
Kefka Palazzo [FF6]
Shadow [FF6]
Edgar & Sabin/Mash Figaro [FF6]
Kid Zeal [CC]
Chrono [CT]
Glenn [CT/CC]
Norris [CC]
Lucca [CT]
Marle [CT]
Serge [CC]
Zell Dincht [FF8]
Dagger [FF9]
Lyra Silvertongue [HDM]
Severus Snape [HP]
Nami [OP]
Luffy D. Monkey [OP]
Roronoa Zoro [OP]
Sana Kurata [KnO]
Nausicaa [NotVW]
Yukari/Caroline [PK]
Arashi [PK]

. . . Um, I'm sure there's more, but I'm tired and my fingers are cramped.

But, if anyone would like to drop me a line sometime, I'm always willing to talk. Just don't expect a prompt reply. I'm rather lazy.
