Greetings and salutations!
Alowl Barbvich here. No, the name isn't meant to be funny, or an inside joke - it's rather simple, actually. My nickname happens to be "Al" and when I was younger, my absolute favorite animal happened to be owls. I idolized them, for some reason - thought of them as the keepers of wisdom, and dreamed of flying on silent wings. So - in a fit of insanity, I simply mashed the two words together. Barbvich - well, I'd been studying Russian history that day. The suffix "vich" is a patronymic, I believe - loosely translated as "child of" so and so. One of my parent's nicknames happens to be "Barb" - no, it is not short for "barbie". It seemed an ample netname at the time. No matter how I trust and admire you, devoted readers, I'm not going to give you the name I was born with.
Personal info? Well...
I'm a terribly lazy student who would really rather read stories than study. That's a lie - I can kill myself with studying if I have to. I just would rather prefer to relax. My specialty is poetry, and I have an odd habit of turning everything into a poem, if I'm given the chance. I've got ideas for lots of stories, but, as previously mentioned, I'm very lazy - not that that'll stop me if the muse whacks me over the head.
I also have an account on FictionPress.com, under the name Alloy Brightdreamer, if you want to read the poetry that I post there - though nowadays, I usually post it in my livejournal.
I'm also an Anime fan, as you can probably tell from my choice of stories.

Well, welcome to my little corner of the net. Feel free to drop by again, sometime - and feel especially free to RR.
First of all, I want to apologize to you.
I promised myself that I would be a good beta. I wasn't, and I really have no excuse. At the time - well, at the time, I was struggling with midterms,and taking a short break from my beta-duties didn't seem like it would be much of a problem. But after the midterms were done and gone - then came finals. So I put it off for a little longer.
There always seemed to be something going on that required my immediate attention. I should have made time for your story. I should have fought harder - but over time, the matter gradually slipped my mind until I'd forgotten how much fun I had working with you. Until I'd forgotten my promises -and,by the time I remembered, I was too ashamed of my own negligence in allowing myself to forget.
I'm sorry. I had fun working on your story - it's a wonderful concept, with interesting plot twists - and there's no excuse for not even dropping you a quick note. This is one of the things that has nagged me for years - I consider it one of the greatest regrets of my life, and I hope that you can someday forgive me for my negligence and cowardice.
It's taken until now for me to muster the courage to apologize. And the guilt I feel today is as strong as the guilt I felt then.
