Author has written 12 stories for Star Wars, Bleach, Transformers, Sky High, Hobbit, Young Justice, Power Rangers, and Rise of the Guardians.
My name, at least my pen name, is Gratia Astra. It's got the same initials as my real name and means "Graceful Star" in Latin, as best as I can translate. I'm totally not one to give out info on the internet, but Gratia is actually my real first name. Cool, huh? I actually wanted the penname "Aercalima" because it's my preferred username but it was already taken.
Some things to know about me:
Insult my fandom, and I may have to murder you. I'm not homophobic, but I really don't like slash. End of story. But that doesn't mean I won't be enjoying some well-written stories with adorable pairings that may or may not contain guy/guy. I can't stand works-in-progress. Unfinished stories, or anime/manga still being written, just drive me nuts. I love all kinds of music (although you're really stretching it if you say rap is music, no offense, that's just not music IMHO.) My favorite genre is hurt/comfort, not necessarily angst. I'm just a sucker for angsty bits that turn into fluff. But my absolute favorite type of story usually involves bromance (platonic, not yaoi.) I tend to come up with stories and evil-plot-bunnies ridiculously fast and easy. It's another thing entirely to actually slow down my brain long enough to type it up. So while I have posted only a few, I have dozens on my computer, and thousands in my head. Maybe someday they'll make it out and onto this site.
I'm an addict, I'll admit it straight up. I'm addicted to:
ANIME: (GOTTA BE SUB, can't stand dub voices if I have a choice)
MOVIES: ...yeah, this just can't be narrowed down to a list.
BOOKS:...yeah, this one's even longer. It's enough to say that I will put aside sleeping, eating and possibly breathing in order to keep reading. Books are my ultimate weakness.
And of course: Books, Chocolate, Mountain Dew, Pizza, music, fanfiction.net, deviant art, my Xbox, and sleep. In that order. But I tend to go through "phases". One week, I'll be totally obsessed with anything Batman. The next week, I'll be fangirling all over Lord of the Rings. The week after that, I could be aggressively attentive to Fairy Tail. Changes constantly and I never know what's going to set me off on my next phase.
Feel free to send me a message (or leave a review, subtle hint, subtle hint). I LOVE hearing from people! About anything, really. Just don't yell at me. I hate flames and trolls and such. Speaking of which. For (romantic) ships, I have my preferences and I'm not really open-minded to any other pairings. What I like, I love. What I don't like, then I hate but I'll stay away from them as much as I can. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion. I'll try to leave you a review if I have the time, because I understand what it's like to get feedback and I keep in mind what I would like to hear when I do.
