Author has written 7 stories for Assassin's Creed, Elder Scroll series, Dragon Age, and Fable.
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.
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.
About the Author:
I am a kufta-eating, baguette-loving, beer-drinking 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 do not drink).
I have switched my major from biology to chemical engineering, and now I am happily pursuing investment banking/finance as a career.
I believe in Evolution, but yet I have faith in God. Suffice to say, I believe in Crevolution.
Half of my family is from the Levant, but I have brond (blond/brown) hair and blue eyes. Huh.
No, I am not tan, olive-skinned, or whatever that user once asked me. Fair-skinned, thank you very much. (Really? I say I'm Armenian and people think I'm tan?)
I love History, especially Middle Eastern history and WWI&II.
Two Steps From Hell is a huge backbone in my stories, as their music pieces are beyond legendary.
For hobbies, I draw, bake, study science, and play the clarinet. Not to mention that I'm a hardcore gamer and am equipped with an arsenal of Playstation 1, Playstation 2's, gameboys, and Xbox 360s.
I adore the Assassin's Creed games, Halo, The Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, Fable, and Devil May Cry.
I will value one genuine friend over a truckload of backstabbing bitches.
I am a beta for Fate Likes Fools, my dear Algerian friend.
And this is the end of my bio. Vwhy thank you for reading :D
