Okay...where to begin...hmm. Well, I'll start where every good story begins.
Once upon a time, there was a wanna-be writer (or at least storyteller) who, with the persuasion of a friend, decided to make a fanfiction.net account. She then started writing like a mad-woman, and soon found herself constantly thinking of nothing but her favorite books, animes, and mangas. What are her favorite books, animes, and mangas? Well...
Books: Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Bride, Memoirs of a Geisha, East, Graceling, Beast, Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, Sense and Sensibility, Eragon, Ink Heart, The Mists of Avalon, A Great and Terrible Beauty, The Wings of Merlin, The Book Thief, The Three Musketeers, Les Miserables, Ophelia, Song of the Sparrow, and Redwall. (Please note that these are just some favorites, not the only ones that I've ever read)
Animes: FullMetal Alchemist, Naruto, Ouran High School Host Club, Inuyasha, Soul Eater, Fruits Basket, Kyo Kara Maoh, Code Geass, Death Note, Pokemon, Cardcaptor Sakura, Tsubasa Chronicle, and Vampire Knight. (I suppose I should include Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy here, even though they are technically games) And many, many more.
Mangas: Beauty is the Beast (which I highly recommend), and Fruits Basket. I'm not really a huge manga reader, I'm just so lazy that I find it easier to watch them rather than read them. Teehee.
And I just need to say: I. Love. Studio Ghibli/Hayao Miyazaki. With. A. Passion. All their movies are lovable, magical, enticing, genius, and simply put, a total pleasure to watch. And Joe Hisaishi. Oh my goodness! I could listen to his music for hours! Especially the Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke soundtracks.
Please allow me to elaborate a bit:
Where do I live, you may ask? I am currently a resident of the sky. A world of old in which castles, magic, dragons, and love are not the things of fantasy, but the things of reality. Alas, I do not have wings, but unlike silly humans, I have not forgotten how to trust the wind to carry me on its back. My favorite way to become inspired is to go flying.
One of my favorite pass times includes chasing and taunting a group of silly, inebriated pirates with my brohter, Peter. He's actually become quite a popular fairy tale figure down on Earth, but we're all happy that he decided to stay in Neverland. (Let me make this plain: I do not live in Neverland. Neverland is inside the second star to the right, after you travel straight on till morning. I live in the clouds. But it's only a short flying distance from Peter.)
When I do decide to go down and see how things are going on Earth, I'm never really too pleased. Humans have a lot of issues. That's why I'll usually spend my time with non-human Earth dwellers such as elves or hobbits. But, I simply love wizards. They are the most amusing creatures to spend time with (especially when they are being harassed by their "cleaning ladies"). The water-dwelling creatures are also lovely, and the most fascinating to watch. They are ancient and secretive. That's what makes them so beautiful and inspiring.
I have conversed with the Yeti, planted trees with Totoro, trained in archery with Legolas, been a ninja of the Village Hidden in the Leaves, worked in the Bath House of the Spirit World, battled the seven homonculi with the real Elric brothers, found Laputa, and have had quite a few more adventures. But at the end of the day, my favorite spot to be is cuddled up with another book open in my hands with the stars as my lamp, tucked away in a little corner of my Castle of Clouds.
