Hey there! I'll probably get round to making this a decent profile once I've been here a bit longer, and once I've finished...everything really. It's not high on my priority list.
ME: The concept of me is an interesting one. I can give you the basic facts.
Name: Bianca Cavallon (haha)
Age: 19 technically, 15 emotionally, 35 in logical thought and about 106 in cultured cynicism.
Eye Colour: Teal. Bluey-grey with a subtle hint of green. Think stormy seas. But in England, which kind of takes the dramatic edge off things.
Hair Colour: Brown. Sort of Dark. Never been dyed or highlighted, and un-styled. I just let it grow and have it trimmed occasionally. I like it.
Height: 5'4", or 162.5 cm.
Habituation: I live in the north-west of England at the moment, am originally from the midlands, and have a lot of family down south. I blame this for my screwed-up accent.
Ethnic origin: White, Caucasian, British. 1/4 Welsh, 1/4 Scottish, 1/8 Irish, 1/32 French, and the rest is probably English.
Occupation: I'm at university, busy being a student whilst pretending to studying for a degree in English Literature and Language.
Personality: Hell to live with, if you ask my housemates. If you ask my parents then I'm just a pain in the ass, but that's familial love for you... bossy, stubborn, lazy, cynical, but also creative, honest and loyal. I have a big mouth and a short temper, but I'm shy around strangers. I am the embodiment of a conflict.
Interests: I read. A lot. I tried to measure how many hours a day I spend reading, but if I said 9 you wouldn't believe me.
~ I'm nocturnal. More or less anyway. My normal sleeping pattern is from 5am-2pm. I get the right amount of sleep, just at the wrong time of day. As you can imagine, this does not coincide well with 10am lectures.
~ Anywhere I go, people say I have a strange accent. It doesn't matter where I am in the country, it's weird. Currently it's considered "posh" but I think the natives round here just get blindsided by the big words I occasionally use in every-day conversation.
BOOKS: This deserves its own subsection. Anything by Terry Pratchett. I will always retain a soft spot for Harry Potter, but prefer Lord of the Rings if we’re going by writing quality. Plus the movie was better than any of the Harry Potters. Twilight was a good read, if a bit mushy and anti-feminist, but I return to it time and time again. Dan Brown started out well with Angels and Demons, but the Da Vinci Code was not worth the hype, and The Lost Symbol was frankly crap. There are quite a few books from my childhood I still read: the Merlin Conspiracy, by Diana Wynne Jones, a book I remember about Shifters, or Switchers, or something, but can’t find now, and I read the entire series of Famous Five books, by Enid Blyton, at the age of 7, so they make the list. Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman was brilliant, but I never read it again because it made me cry. I read classics for my course, but not for relaxation. James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series is good as well, and Tess Gerritsen does good crime books too, for holiday reading anyway. But I'll read anything you put in front of me. Except textbooks, because if you've ever read one they put you off for life.
WRITING: I really love writing, but it takes me a while to work up to it, and then my stories can ramble on for a while. I never, ever plan my stories before I start writing them, and only ever have the vaguest idea of what's going to happen next. This leads to a lot of re-writing, but if it was good enough for J.R.R.Tolkein, it's good enough for me. I am a stickler for spelling, punctuation and grammar, and often act as a human spellchecker for my friends at Uni. My biggest dislikes are chatspeak in stories, lack of capital letters, and movies based on books, as they never do the books justice (just had to throw that one in). Oh, and I tend to use the word WHILST a lot. It is grammatically correct and means exactly the same as WHILE! My excuse? I'm English and a formal speaker.
GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: I know absolutely nothing about cars, fashion and geography, so I spend a lot of time on google whenever I'm writing. They're 3 subjects that are hard to avoid. On the other hand, I have excellent miscellaneous knowledge of nail care, mythology, computer software and psychology, so maybe it balances out. I'm about average on subjects of baking, biology and D.I.Y.
MY USERNAME WhiteHorse-x. I'm not particularly fond of my penname anymore, but don't feel the need to alter it. The inspiration came from 3-fold: 1) The name of the Taylor Swift song my little sister was playing at the time I made this account. I'm not a great fan of Taylor Swift, but enjoyed the lyrics of this particular song. 2) The name of a small town, about 50 miles east of Denali, Alaska, which I spotted on a map whilst plotting my first story, and 3) The idealistic fairy-tale concept of that which brings salvation in the form of a stunningly handsome prince/knight-in-shining-armor/other-unattached-attractive-male.
Think that's about it. Feel free to message me regarding pretty much anything, except maths. I'm not going to give you any more information on here, so please direct your attention downwards to the important stuff.
UPDATES: Aurora Lights is currently on hiatus, which is annoying as it's so close to the end anyway. However, there is a good reason for this! One of several really. Primarily, I was suffocating under a large block of the writer's variety. Having finally recovered after several months, I sat down at my computer and began to write... but started a complete different story by accident! Ooops. It's currently at 30,000 words, and has no other title other than Work in Progress. I won't talk about the plot at the minute, as nothing is certain and I don't want to jinx it, but it will eventually (hopefully) morph into 2 stories, one in Edwards POV and one in Bella's, both at around 100,000 words at the way it's going currently. Which is a daunting task. So it's gonna be a while, if ever, but I'm hoping it'll be worth, and knock Aurora Lights out of the water. So I'll see you when I see you, and if you have any questions just PM me, as I'm always on here reading until the early hours of the morning.
As for Aurora Lights, yes, I will finish it. I'll probably get round to it when I need a break from my current story, so keep your eyes open.
