Hi. I'm Artygirl.
Also known as "the girl who reviews everyone's fanfics, practically, but no one reviews her back and that makes her sad." You can see why I go by Artygirl. MUCH shorter.
I don't get why like no one reviews my stuff. Is no one reading my writing? All these people have me on story alert and have checked out my writing, but they don't review. Okay, so I'm ever-so-slightly insane. Your point? It makes no difference unless you know me. Plus, aren't all artists somewhat crazy? I mean, come on, if we weren't crazy the world would be BORING!!!!! We'd all be the exact freaking same.
Sorry. Ranting's just so much fun! Like I said, I'm a touch insane. Deal with it. I'm me. ;)
About me...I (obviously) love to write, but I find short chapters much easier. Sorry 'bout that. I dance (ballet and jazz), sing in the chorus (soprano), and play in the band (mallets). I'm obsessed with a) archaeology, b) Egyptology (the archaeological study of Ancient Egypt), c) the life of JFK, and d) the high school marching band, which I can be in next year. I have two parents, a mom and a dad (that should be obvious, but being silly is fun) and two brothers, both younger.
I'm also on FictionPress: http://www.fictionpress.com/u/749580/Artygirl Check it out if you like my writing.
Also, if you're wondering what my profile picture is, it's my favorite candy bar. Hershey's Cookies and Cream. YUM!!!
Favorite books/series (italics is a book, non-italics is a series): Skulduggery Pleasant series, Inkheart triliogy, Reckless, Beka Cooper...basically any good fantasy
A note about Inkheart: Mo has to write HEART, SPELL, DEATH in the White Book to kill the Adderhead, yes? Well, has anyone else noticed...InkHEART, InkSPELL, InkDEATH?
For all you Beka Cooper fans, I have a sneak preview of Mastiff. If you want it, shoot me a PM.
Favorite quotes, from books/movies/etc.:
"We're not retreating, we're advancing in reverse." -Skulduggery Pleasant, Playing With Fire.
"You're a bad liar, Dave. That's good." -Balthazar Blake, The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010 version, thank you very much)
"Fletcher was growing paler by the second. 'I'm really not sure about this.' 'They don't want to hurt you,' said Tanith. 'No, they just want to use me to destroy the world, and seeing as how I'm in the world, that would still be a bad thing for me. I know you think that I'm really confident and nothing can faze me--' 'None of us think that,' Ghastly said." -Fletcher Renn/Tanith Low/Ghastly Bespoke, The Faceless Ones
"'You're such an unbelieveable show-off.' 'I learned it all from you.' Skulduggery got off the chair and took the journal from her. 'I don't show off. I merely demonstrate my abilities at opportune times.'" -Valkyrie Cain/Skulduggery Pleasant, The Faceless Ones
Elffa, the Twin-- The Supernaturalist. So Stefan's dead. Yeah, we knew that. But he had an almost-identical twin sister that we didn't know about, Elffa.
Alexa's Quest-- The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Twenty years after the movie ends. Dave's kinda forgotten all about the magic. Okay, not exactly, but he hasn't used it for 20 years. And then Alexa, Balthazar and Veronica's daughter saves his life and drags him on a quest to rescue her parents from whoever kidnapped them.
A Cat for the Dogs-- Beka Cooper. Beka and Tunstall find this girl, Sabby, who is one of the legendary Cats--a spy.
Remembrance-- Skulduggery Pleasant. Kinda depressing to write, 'cause Skulduggery's comparing Valkyrie to the 3 women he loved: his wife, his daughter, and a dear friend. Short but sweet.
Two Flocks are Better than One-- Maximum Ride. Max's flock meets a flock basically exactly like them. The matchup goes Max-Lydia, Fang-Cathe, Iggy-Brodie, Nudge-Cloee, Gazzy-Jessica (I think), and Angel-Michaela. Eventually there's gonna be something Iggy-Brodie
Later--my really, really lame South Pacific FanFic. I was bored, and out of my mind. All I can say was that I was studying for midterms. Endlessly.
Dustfinger Speaks--a bunch of poems told 1st person by Dustfinger from Inkheart. He's my favorite character.
Nothing Compared to High School: Caspian and his queen, Elissa, end up in high school, and Caspian finds out that ruling a country is nothing compared to high school.
Some Enchanted Evening: Rosto uses the song "Some Enchanted Evening" from South Pacific to tell about his attraction to Beka. He doesn't sing, though. *Sigh of relief*.
I also took some of the "if you _ copy and paste this into your profile" from Light of Polaris.
My name is Chris.
I am three,
My eyes are swollen
I cannot see,
I must be stupid
I must be bad,
What else could have made
My daddy so mad?
I wish I were better
I wish I weren't ugly,
Then maybe my mommy
Would still want to hug me.
I can't do a wrong
I can't speak at all
Or else I'm locked up
All day long.
When I'm awake I'm all alone
The house is dark
My folks aren't home
When my mommy does come home
I'll try and be nice,
So maybe I'll just get
One whipping tonight.
I just heard a car
My daddy is back
From Charlie's bar.
I hear him curse
My name is called
I press myself
Against the wall
I try to hide
From his evil eyes
I'm so afraid now
I'm starting to cry
He finds me weeping
Calls me ugly words,
He says its my fault
He suffers at work.
He slaps and hits me
And yells at me more,
I finally get free
And run to the door
He's already locked it
And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me
Against the hard wall
I fall to the floor
With my bones nearly broken,
And my daddy continues
With more bad words spoken,
"I'm sorry!", I scream
But its now much too late
His face has been twisted
Into a unimaginable shape
The hurt and the pain
Again and again
O please God, have mercy!
O please let it end!
And he finally stops
And heads for the door
While I lay there motionless
Brawled on the floor
My name is Chris
I am three,
Tonight my daddy

I have all these issues...'specially the random-staring one...i just stare into space (I'm either daydreaming, organizing my mind, or a combination thereof; don't ask, it makes me sound CRAZY!) and people say "why are you staring at me?" It DRIVES ME NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially when I say "I'm not," and they're like "uh-huh..." And I'll shut up now. Temporarily, at least.
A teenage girl about seventeen named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won’t repost it?
