control of chaos (definition): in chaos theory, and based on the fact that any chaotic attractor contains an infinite number of unstable periodic orbits, it is the stabilization of one unstable periodic orbit by means of small system perturbation; in linguistics studies, this is considered an oxymoron, or a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction, as chaos is something which by definition cannot be controlled

I'm Kathryn, or 虚しい月 (pronounced munashii tsuki) if you prefer.
vital stats: 19yo/ US citizen/ INFP/ type 9: peacemaker/ nonbinary/ aro & ace/ depression & anxiety/ chronic illness/ frequent traveler/
I am currently a full-time actuarial science major/psychology minor uni student in the States also working part-time in neuroscience and physics research, for a software-as-a-service (SAS) company as an account manager and marketing coordinator, as a freelance writer and for the aforementioned company and, at the moment, co-authoring several textbook chapters for a relatively well-known university that shall not be named. No, I will not fix your computer.
If I throw out a word you don't know, ask. Sometimes there isn't an English word or I simply couldn't think of it. This isn't unusual, but I try to edit it out. My beta/twin doesn't catch every mistake and corrections help me improve as an author. Of course, reviews are just as wonderful. Flames will be fed to my pyro cousin.
movies: the Lord of the Rings trilogy, all of the Star Treks (but mostly OS, NG and AOS/2009) The Matrix (the first and only one), The Last Samurai, The A-Team, Rise of the Guardians, Shawshank Redemption, The Avengers and anything that has Scarlett Johannson, Dev Patel or Kevin Spacey in it. Also my hate-love relationship with RDJ.
Huge music person. I LOVE recommendations. Interests range from Disturbed and Taylor Swift, to Metallica and Florence & The Machine, and back around to Fall Out Boy and Poets of the Fall.
places to find me: ctrlofchaos (tumblr writing blog, includes WIPs, updates, my bursts of poetry, writing references and resources, Q&A, etc.), drmivglia (personal tumblr, warning for frequent randomness, photography, art, and science/history geekiness), my brand new AO3 account, and as always, slowly dying on MATLAB forums.

20 Jan. '15: Happy New Year! If this is the one that finally kills me, all my stuff goes to Elizabeth, Jishi-tan, Ken-san and Sprite, because they understand my pain. Elizabeth, your first job upon notification of my death is to dump all of my engineering textbooks and notebooks on Jishi-tan, especially my EPICS notebook. She is very fond of programming and electronics and Arduino boards so she will be very, very happy to get them. *Jishi-tan sneezes in the distance* Ken-san, you get that army-grade medical pack I bought for China, a litter of kittens chosen by Elizabeth and bought with my money (I have faith in you, keep them alive), and a pack of cookie dough so you can finally taste it in its most pure and potent form. Sprite, your desire to physically and mentally destroy every 'verse you join scares me, but to assist your efforts, I give you my psychology books, physiology and medical texts, and your choice of torture devices. May you one day be tempted back to the less-Dark-but-slightly-less-morally-inclined-than-the-Light Side. Elizabeth, you get the rest of my research notes and books, especially given that they are, y'know, piled in precarious stacks all around your room. You may also find a good deal of your socks in my dorm. Enjoy.
04 Apr. '15: *peeks in* Hey guys. Things are crazy around here. Just got a promotion and I'm switching majors, which is a crazy experience. All stories still on hiatus because there is lots of editing work I've fallen behind on. Thanks to those of you who have stuck around! A lot of WIPs are going up on my tumblr, so if you want to see what's going on behind the scenes, come check me out. Otherwise, the KuroBasu and K-Project fandoms have their teeth in me at the moment. Expect plenty of things from that corner of the 'verse.
05 May '15: DAMMIT FMA FANDOM WHY. I HAVE OTHER STORIES TO WRITE. GET IN LINE. *cries over five pages of story outlines*
Hey everyone! I'm now on tumblr as ctrlofchaos, which is where I can answer questions, give updates, and generally be irritating if you should so desire to listen. I will also be putting up WIPs to see if anyone likes them before they go up here.
