Author has written 7 stories for Assassin's Creed, Elder Scroll series, Dragon Age, and Fable.
11/29/2015: Hi ho, hi ho! Things have started turning around, at long last. I've transferred to the main campus of my university, and it is HUGE. It's a beautiful place with tens of thousands of people here; it's sort of like a mini city, actually. But the atmosphere is very pleasant and energetic. I've made so many new friends, learned so much about my major, and I feel like I'm doing something with myself. University is difficult if you feel like you're not doing something. You can be acing all your classes, but if you don't feel like you're also paving the way for your life after graduation, college is a bitch. Learned that; been there, done that.
I still miss my pooch, of course. Sometimes, when I visit home, I want to pet her. Like... her fur was so soft and silky. It sucks when I realize I can't pet her anymore. One day, one day...
At this new place, I'm doing so many extracurricular activities. Fanfiction is on hold, but not forever. Winter Break is a few weeks away, and I. Have. So. Many. New. Ideas. For. NU. I'm very excited, and I can't help but sneak off to MS Word to type away when I should be calculating the prices of Options. Eh D;
6/2/2015: I was beginning to pull myself out of a very dark place; it's been difficult, but I've been managing. Today, my girl dog passed away, and now... She will be dearly missed. 2015 has been an awful, awful year. I don't know when my next updates for any of my stories will be.
1/23/2015: I apologize for not updating any of my stories for quite some time. I'm not well nor myself; I've lost very important people to me, and I feel very much alone most of the time. I am trying to piece myself back together, but when you're unhappy with yourself, you find that feat nearly impossible.
I will try to update, as I find some peace and quiet in writing. I'm sorry for any inconveniences.
Now, back to NU.
This has easily become my favorite story in progress. It's in a fandom that I'm comfortable with, as RPGs are my favorite type of games. NU takes place in TESV: Skyrim, but there are several twists to the characters, plotlines, etc. I want to incorporate that feeling of companionship into my writing, and I also want to experiment with character development and indirect characterization. I was influenced by the smooth dialogue Dragon Age has, and I want to give that a shot.
About the Author:
I am a kufta-eating, baguette-loving, alcoholic woman in her twenties. Now that those stereotypes are out of the way, that is to say, I'm Armenian, French, and Irish (no, I'm not an alcoholic, but I do like my vino). I'm a full-time student pursuing a major in Finance, Investment Banking, and I am completing three minors: Japanese, Writing, & Economics. Even though I treat my writing as my babies, sometimes I don't have enough time for Fanfiction. I try my best; I really do. But, eh. This thing called school. Not free. Lots of money. Gotta stick with it.
My biggest literature pet peeves:
-The word is 'skeptical,' with a K, not a C. 'Sceptical'-- what IS that? Does it have to do with sceptics? Are we talking about sewage, here? NO. We are talking about hesitance, reluctance, etc. Nor is it 'spectacle,' which is an ongoing scene or commotion.
-I and me. "She was never as good a baker as I." Wrong, wrong, wrong! You use me during comparisons when you use yourself; using 'I' does not make the speaker sound more important or regal; it makes them sound stupid.
-'Definitely.' It is not defiantly, it is not definately.
-Your and you're. 'Your' is possessive, as in something belongs to you. You're is a contraction, short for 'you are' or 'you were.' This is a great segue to my next peeve.
-Were and where. 'Were' is a form of the verb 'be.' It is not associated with location. 'Where' is associated with location.
-There, their, and they're. Oh good God. 'There' is associated with location or circumstance. Ex1: 'There they are!' Ex2: 'There is a matter at hand. 'Their' is possessive, as in something belongs to them. Ex: 'Their dog bit me.' 'They're' is another contraction, short for 'they are' or 'they were.'
-Bear and bare. 'Bear' is an animal and also a verb. Verb bear: to withstand, uphold, endure. Ex: 'I had to bear her presence.' 'Bare' is exposing something, as in getting naked. Simply put.
-Wine and whine. 'Wine' is an alcoholic beverage, made from fermenting grapes. 'Whine' is to complain and be miserable, and also the sound of complaints and misery.
-Run and ran. 'Run' is present tense. 'Ran' is past tense. It is 'I have run,' not 'I have ran.'
-Then and than. Dear Lord Almighty. 'Then' is a segue to something coming up, as in 'next, then, after.' 'Than' is a comparison word. It does NOT segue to anything. 'I am taller than him.' 'She is taller than me.' It is NOT 'She is taller then me.' Wrong, wrong, wrong!
-Whip, wipe, and whipe. 'Whip' is a cord that you hurt someone or something with by swinging it with a sharp motion of the arm and wrist. It is also the action of hurting someone with a cord by using sharp motions of the arm and wrist. 'Wipe' is to remove, clean, etc. It is also something that removes, cleans, etc. 'Whipe' isn't even a word.
-Its and it's. 'It's' is NOT possessive of ANYTHING. It is a contraction, short for 'it has,' 'it is,' or 'it was.' 'Its' is the possessive form of 'it.'
-His, her, and hers. Sweet Mother. 'His' is possessive of 'he.' 'Her' is possessive of 'she.' 'Hers' is also possessive of 'she.' When using comparisons, you do not use 'she.' Ex1: I am a better runner than her. You use 'she' with a verb type following. Ex2: I am a better runner than she is. There is NO such word as 'her's.'
-Woman vs. Women. Sigh. Just, give me a moment. Okay. I do not know why this is such a difficult concept. The singular of 'man' is 'man,' the plural is 'men.' It is the same for woman. 'Woman' is singular, 'women' is plural. You do not say Ex1: The woman have nice dresses on. No, no, no. You say Ex2: The women have nice dresses on.
I will be adding more to this list in time, when I can think of my other peeves.
