Author has written 4 stories for NCIS, Bones, and Harry Potter.
First thing's first, I don't write that often, and most of what I do write never makes its way anywhere near this site because even though I have bazillions of ideas constantly running through my head, I typically don't have the heart to carry them out through an end, if I can even picture one.
I'm usually in the TV sector of this site because I am a complete fanatic about my shows. Currently, my favorites are The Good Wife (so much drama it just makes me squeal!) Covert Affairs (though I often think that that show doesn't even need to have a fanfiction category because it is SO damn good at just about everything) Bones (Though I tend to not get quite as much into the show itself as I did when I was first introduced) Rizzoli & Isles (Awesome... really nothing else to say there except that I don't read much on it) Castle (I haven't watched but what is shown on TNT in the afternoons- I can't watch the new stuff before the old, it doesn't seem right-, but I do love what I've seen!) Grey's Anatomy... it's my vice, Madam Secretary (FUCK yes!), Modern Family, and newly, Code Black - it's like Grey's but less tele nova and I love it to pieces already!!
I am also a major gigantonormously HUGE fan of Ironman. It's just... dude. I freaking love him. I've only ever read one comic, and that may make me a terrible person in some circles, but I could not care less- Love, love, LOVE IronMan. Also seriously love Thor and Captain America (dude have you SEEN those movie!!???)
My favorite fanfics are typically ones that delve into the pasts of characters but at present times, even though I feel the best ones are stories that make you look at something- anything in a different light or see different possibilities within canon (Though I try to give AU's a fair shot, and, might I add that some of them are very, very good). I really, really don't like reading about anything Vampire-ish (which is kind of a shame, because there seem to be some awesome Buffy/Bones and Angel/Bones crossovers out there) and am not a big fan of slash, but if it's presented in the right way I'm all for it.
I'm a Chemistry and Biology double major (not biochem- the requirements are different and just weird...) and, as of now, a Russian (maybe Political Science too...) minor.
I love to talk about anything and have opinions on just about everything, so if you ever want somebody to talk to- I'm so there!:) I also have some amazing ideas that I, myself, could never be good enough to actually put into writing, so if you want some of them PM the crap put of me!
Though I have not read much of Shakespeare, this is my favorite quote, along with a few of my other favorites that sum up many of my personal philosophies about life an love and the world therein(:
To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes calamity of so long life;
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,
The insolence of office and the spurns
That patient merit of the unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover'd country from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action. - Soft you now!
The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remember'd.
-William Shakespeare's Hamlet; Act III, Scene I
Every step forward begins with a firmly planted foot in the past.
- Auggie Anderson (Covert Affairs) [not sure if this is from someone else, but I couldn't find anything so...]
You get what anybody gets- you get a lifetime.
- Neil Gaiman
A ship in a harbor is safe, but that's not why ships were built.
- John Augustus Shedd
Only those who fall know what it's like to fly.
All God does is watch us and kill us when we get boring- we must never, ever get boring.
- Chuck Palahniuk
If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy; if it were merely challenging, it would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy it. (This makes it hard to plan the day...)*
- E.B. White
True morality is doing what is right without the threat of divine retribution, nor the possibility of divine reward.
- Arthur Paliden
Sometimes you gotta create what you want to be a part of.
-Geri Weitzman (got this one off of True Colours's page!)
Sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe
Maybe We have to break everything in order to make something better of ourselves.
- Fight Club.
He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.
- Gabriel García Márquez
Why put off till tomorrow what you can avoid doing altogether?
Call on God but row away from the rocks.
-Hunter S. Thompson
I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as a seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom , goes on as fruit.
And, of course, The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
