Info about yours truly:
Well, there's not much to tell really, but here does.
I'm currently a second year at university. I love the dawn (hence my penname) yet hate standing up early... it's a paradox, I know. I'm not really sure how to describe myself, it's sort of still a work-in-progress but I'm getting there at least. I love reading and writing is my passion (why else join a writing site, right?). I love comics, manga & movies that leave some sort of impact afterwards. I hate horror movies (certain things are just not meant to come out of the walls man! That's all I'm saying!). I drink a lot of coffee and am no ashamed to admit that yes, I am a caffeine-addict. I currently have no idea what to do with my life but I'm an optimist and say that the picture is getting clearer every day - so it's all good!
Saddest TV Moment: When Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer died in Season 7’s finale
Happiest TV Moment: When Buffy finally told Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer that she loved him in Season 7’s finale (for this reason and this reason alone, as well as the reason above, I’ve been a weeping mess for a week)
Favourite Superhero: It’s a battle royal between Batman and Ironman. I’m also a huge fangirl of both Thor and Spiderman, which is weird since I actually prefer DC over Marvel. But, the list of other superheroes I do like, is as following; From DC - Superman (Clark Kent), Green Arrow (Oliver Queen), Wonder Woman (Diana Prince), Black Canary (Dinah Lance), Nightwing (Richard Grayson), Red Hood (Jason Todd - technically not a hero-hero, but who cares!), Robin (Damian Wayne), Red Arrow/Arsenal/Speedy (Roy Harper), Red Robin (Timothy Drake), Green Lantern (Hal Jordon) & the Flash (Wally West)
Favourite Movies: Red, Ironman 1, 2 & 3 , The Avengers, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Kung Fu Panda 2, Miss Congeniality, Easy A, Bad Teacher, Dinner for Schmucks, Fun with Dick and Jane, Morning Glory, Vampires Suck, Get Smart, Man of Steel & the Superman Movies 1 & 2 with Christopher Reeve as Superman
The Person I would like to meet the most: I’m torn between Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas or Flo-Rida. Oh! And, I’d really like to meet the Jonas Brothers so that I can tell them they looked like a bunch of teen werewolves in Camp Rock on the Disney Channel.
Favourite Games: Plants vs. Zombies, The Legend of Spyro Series, Persona 4, Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest 8, Age of Mythology, Odin’s Sphere & Sims.
Favourite Bands & Musicians: Calvin Harris, Pink, Flo-Rida, Paramore, Florence the Machine, Muse, Owl City, Snow Patrol, The Fray, The Killers, Nickleback, Daughtry, David Guetta, Civil Twilight, Carly Rae Jepsen, Coldplay, Avalanche City, Band of Skulls, Foster the People, Deathcab for Cutie, Emeli Sande, The Script, Kings of Leon, Martin Solveig, Britney Spears & The Wanted.
Guilty Pleasure: COFFEE!!!!
- Young Justice: Robin/Dick Grayson, Kid Flash/Wally & Artemis/Artemis Crock
- Spyro the Dragon: Spyro, Cynder, Sparx, Hunter (the old version), Ignitus & Moneybags (also from the older versions)
- Persona 4: Naoto & Teddie
- Revenge: Emily Thorne/The Real Amanda Clark & Nolan Ross
- Wolf's Rain Blue
That which I dislike:
- Charles Dickens (only because I have to read his stupid book, A Tale of Two Cities for English class) & and the dude makes a point of explaining his (beautiful and likewise gripping) metaphors in detail over and over in his writing - I think his stuff would be easier to read if he didn't do the last thing, seriously.
- Essays (not fun, not fun at all)
- Bullies (of all ages)
- Know-it-all's & Suck-up's (seriously, WHY?)
And, then, lastly;
- Writer's Block (it's a bitch)
Favourite Movie Quotes:
From Sherlock Holmes (2009):
Sherlock Holmes: You've never complained about my methods before.
Dr Watson: I'm not complaining.
Sherlock Holmes: You're not? What are you right now?
Dr Watson: How am I complaining? I never complain. When do I complain about practicing your violin at three in the morning? Or your mess, your general lack of hygiene or the fact that you steal my clothes? When do I complain about you setting fire to my rooms?
Sherlock Holmes: Our rooms.
Dr Watson: The rooms! When do I complain about you performing experiments on my dog?
Sherlock Holmes: There's only one case that intrigues me at present. The curious case of Mrs Hudson, the absentee landlady. I've been studying her comings and goings, they appear most... sinister.
Mrs Hudson: Tea, Mr Holmes?
Sherlock Holmes: Is it poisoned, Nanny?
Mrs Hudson: There's enough of that in you already.
Irene Adler: Why are you always so suspicious?
Sherlock Holmes: Shall I answer chronologically? Or alphabetically?
Dr Watson: Get that out of my face.
Sherlock Holmes: It's not in your face, it's in my hand.
Dr Watson: Get what is in your hand out of my face.
Sherlock Holmes: Madam, I need you to remain calm and trust me, I'm a professional. Beneath this pillow lies the key to my release.
Sherlock Holmes: Don Giavonni is playing at the theatre. I could easily procure two tickets if you had anyone interested in going.
Dr Watson: [punches him] I knew she had been engaged. She'd told me.
Sherlock Holmes: That would be a ‘no; to the theatre then?
From Sherlock Holmes 2: Game of Shadows (2011):
Sherlock Holmes: It's so overt...it's covert.
Madam Simza Heron: A wagon is too slow. Can't you ride?
Dr John Watson: It's not that he can't ride. How is it that you put it, Holmes?
Sherlock Holmes: [horses] They're dangerous at both ends and crafty in the middle. Why would I want anything with a mind of its own bobbing about between my legs?
Sherlock Holmes: Lie down with me, Watson.
Dr John Watson: Why?!
Sherlock Holmes: I insist.
Dr John Watson: You... What are we doing down here?
Sherlock Holmes: We are waiting. I am smoking.
Dr John Watson: You seem to be-
Sherlock Holmes: Excited?
Dr John Watson: Manic. Verging on-
Sherlock Holmes: Ecstatic?
Dr John Watson: Psychotic. I should have brought you a sedative.
Sherlock Holmes: Don't be a dingy bird.
Dr John Watson: [reading note left by Holmes] 'Come at once, if convenient. If inconvenient, come all the same.'
Sherlock Holmes: [grabbing bomb] Don't worry, this is what I do for a living.
Mary Watson: I miss him too, you know, in my own way. It's going to be a beautiful week in Brighton.
Dr John Watson: He would have wanted us to go.
Mary Watson: He would have wanted to come along.
Dr John Watson: I know you can hear me, you selfish bastard. [performs CPR on Holmes] I know you can hear me you bastard! [Watson is dragged from body by Sim, and thinks of something] His wedding gift.
Sherlock Holmes: [injected with fluid from the adrenal glands of sheep, runs into the wall of the box car] Watson, I just had the most peculiar dream. You and Mary and Gladstone and I were at a restaurant. There was a satanic pony. It had a fork in its hoove and it was laughing at me! What have you administered?
Dr John Watson: Your wedding present.
Sherlock Holmes: Elizabeth dancing on my chest!
Dr John Watson: Me.
Dr John Watson: Tell me, when was the last time you had a hedgehog goulash?
Sherlock Holmes: Well, I just told you Watson I can't remember.
Dr John Watson: Well, maybe you've repressed it.
Sherlock Holmes: Ah, that's where you're wrong. You see, unlike you, I repress nothing.
Dr John Watson: Ah yes, and that's perfectly normal.
Sherlock Holmes: How dare you be rude to this woman who has invited us into her tent, offered us her hedgehog?
Dr John Watson: Says the man who throws women from trains.
Mrs Hudson: [turning to Dr John Watson] Doctor, you must get him to a sanitorium! For the past month, he's taken nothing but coffee, tobacco, and cocoa leaves. He never sleeps! I hear multiple voices, as if he's rehearsing a play.
Sherlock Holmes: Don't you have a goat that needs worming?
Mrs Hudson: Ah, yes. Such fun. What would I do without you?
Sherlock Holmes: Why are you here?
Dr John Watson: I'm getting married. Tomorrow.
Sherlock Holmes: Ah! Embrace me!
Dr John Watson: [opens the door to Holmes' study, it is full with strange plants] Your hedge needs trimming.
Sherlock Holmes: out of sight, barely audible] Where am I?
Dr John Watson: I don't care where you are. I'm not gonna play this game. I have to catch the last - [is struck by an arrow from behind, but it doesn't do him any harm; he turns, but can't see anything] - train.
Sherlock Holmes: [still out of sight] Oh, oh, that's you dead, I'm afraid.
Dr John Watson: You win [sits down and looks around the room] I lose. [disappears behind a newspaper] Game over. [another arrow hits the newspaper, Watson puts it down again]
Sherlock Holmes: Still don't see me?
[reveals himself to have been standing in front of a pillar and a bookshelf wearing some weird costume which allows him to blend in with that exact spot, laughs and steps into the middle of the room] Quel surprise. [takes off the hoods of his disguise]
Dr John Watson: [punching Holmes after Mary was thrown from the train, into the river] Did you just kill my new wife?
Sherlock Holmes: I timed it perfectly!
Mycroft Holmes: Good evening, Mrs Watson. I'm the other Holmes.
Mary Watson: You mean there's two of you? Marvellous.
Sherlock Holmes: Has all my instruction been for naught? [pours] You still read the official statement and believe it. It's a game, dear man, a shadowy game. We're playing cat and mouse, the professor and I. Cloak and dagger.
Dr John Watson: I thought it was spider and fly. [reads the label of the bottle Sherlock has been pouring from; it says Formaldehyde]
Sherlock Holmes: I'm not a fly, I'm a cat.
Dr John Watson: Not a mouse, but a dagger. [Sherlock drinks] You’re drinking embalming fluid.
Sherlock Holmes: [exhales] Yes. Care for a drop?
Batman Begins (2005):
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Bruce Wayne.
Earle: What makes you think you can decide who's running Wayne Enterprises?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Well, the fact that I'm the owner.
Earle: What are you talking about? The company went public a week ago.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: And I bought most of the shares - through various charitable foundations, and trusts, and so forth. Look, it's all a bit technical, but the important thing is that my company's future is secure. Right, Mister Fox?
Earle: Right you are, Mister Wayne.
Lucius Fox: Didn't you get the memo?
Alfred Pennyworth: Why do we fall sir? So we might learn to pick ourselves up.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: You still haven't given up on me?
Alfred Pennyworth: Never.
Alfred Pennyworth: Are you coming back to Gotham for long, sir?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: As long as it takes. I'm gonna show the people of Gotham their city doesn't belong to the criminals and the corrupt.
Alfred Pennyworth: In the depression, your father nearly bankrupted Wayne Enterprises combating poverty. He believed that his example could inspire the wealthy of Gotham to save their city.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Did it?
Alfred Pennyworth: In a way. Their murders shocked the wealthy and the powerful into action.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne, as a man I'm flesh and blood I can be ignored I can be destroyed but as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting.
Alfred Pennyworth: What symbol?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Something elemental, something terrifying.
Alfred Pennyworth: I assume that as you're taking on the underworld, this symbol is a persona to protect those you care about from reprisals.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: You thinking about Rachel?
Alfred Pennyworth: Actually, sir, I was thinking of myself.
Alfred Pennyworth: Why bats, Master Wayne?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Bats frighten me. It's time my enemies shared my dread.
Lucius Fox: I analysed your blood, isolating the receptor compounds and the protein-based catalyst.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Am I meant to understand any of that?
Lucius Fox: Not at all, I just wanted you to know how hard it was. Bottom-line I synthesised an antidote.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Could you make more?
Lucius Fox: You planning on gassing yourself again, Mr Wayne?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Well, you know how it is, Mr Fox. You're out at night, looking for kicks, someone's passing around the weaponized hallucinogens.
Lucius Fox: I'll bring what I have. The antidote should inoculate you for now.
Henri Ducard: Theatricality and deception are powerful agents.
Ra's Al Ghul: Well, well. You took my advice about theatricality a bit... literally.
Jim Gordon: I'll get my car.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: I brought mine.
Jim Gordon: Yours?
Jim Gordon: I've got to get me one of those.
Lucius Fox: Why do you need that [anti-shooting equipment, Mr Wayne?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Spelunking. Y'know, cave diving.
Lucius Fox: Uh-huh... and you expect to be shot a lot in these caves?
Alfred Pennyworth: It's a problem with the graphite, sir. The next 10,000 will be up to specifications.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: At least they gave us a discount.
Alfred Pennyworth: Quite. In the, uh, meantime, Sir, may I suggest you try to avoid landing on your head?
Alfred Pennyworth: They'll have to be, uh, large orders, uh to avoid suspicion.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: How large?
Alfred Pennyworth: Say, uh, Ten Thousand.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Well, at least we'll have spares.
Alfred Pennyworth: What was the point of all those push-ups if you can't even lift up a bloody log!
From The Dark Knight (2008):
Batman/Bruce Wayne: People are dying, Alfred. What would you have me do?
Alfred: Endure, Master Wayne. Take it. They'll hate you for it, but that's the point of Batman, he can be the outcast. He can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Well today I found out what Batman can't do. He can't endure this. Today you get to say "I told you so."
Alfred: Today, I don't want to.
Alfred: But I did bloody tell you.
Gordon: It's mister Wayne, isn't it? That was a very brave thing you did!
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Trying to catch the light?
Gordon: You weren't protecting the van?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Why, who's in it? Do you think I should go to the hospital?
Gordon: You don't watch a whole lot of news, do you, Mr Wayne?
Joker: I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Hmmm? You know... You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan". Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!
[Joker hands Two-Face a gun and points it at himself]
Joker: Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair! [Still holding the gun, Two-Face pauses and takes out his coin]
Harvey Dent: [Showing Joker the good side] You live.
Harvey Dent: [Showing the scarred side] You die.
Joker: Mmm, now we're talking.
Alfred: Did you get mauled by a tiger?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: It was a dog.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: It was a big dog.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: You look tired, Alfred. You'll be all right without me?
Alfred: You can tell me the Russian for, 'Apply your own bloody suntan lotion.'
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Don't let me find you out here again.
Brian: We're trying to help you!
Batman/Bruce Wayne: I don't need help.
Scarecrow: Not my diagnosis!
Brian: What gives you the right? What's the difference between you and me?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: I’m not wearing hockey pads.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: What about getting back into the plane?
Lucius Fox: I'd recommend a good travel agent.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Without it landing.
Lucius Fox: Now that's more like it, Mr Wayne.
Alfred: I suppose they'll lock me up as well. As your accomplice...
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Accomplice? I'm going to tell them the whole thing was your idea.
Lucius Fox: Are we talking Rottweilers or Chihuahuas?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: *cocks his head*
Lucius Fox: Should do fine against cats.
Harvey Dent: Any psychotic ex-boyfriends I should be aware of?
Alfred: Oh, you have no idea!
Joker: You've got a little fight in you. I like that.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Then you're gonna love me.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: If I get him to you, can you get him to talk?
Harvey Dent: I'll get him to sing.
Joker: I believe whatever doesn't kills you, simply makes you... Stranger.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: Then why did you wanna kill me?
Joker: [laughs] I don't wanna kill you! What would I do without you?! Go back to ripping off mob dealers?! No, no, no! You… complete me!
Chechen: What do you propose?
Joker: It's simple. We, uh, kill the Batman.
Maroni: If it's so simple, why haven't you done it already?
Joker: If you're good at something, never do it for free.
Joker: Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I'm a dog chasing cars. I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just... *do* things.
Joker: Oh, you. You just couldn't let me go, could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You are truly incorruptible, aren't you? Huh? You won't kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won't kill you because you're just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever.
Joker: It's a funny world we live in. Speaking of which, do you know how I got these scars?
Batman/Bruce Wayne: No, but I know how you got these!
Alfred: It'll be nice when Wayne Manor's rebuilt. Then you can swap not sleeping in a penthouse, for not sleeping in a mansion.
Joker: Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I'm a dog chasing cars. I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it.
Joker: I like this job - I like it!
Joker: [Batman slams The Joker's head on a table] Never start with the head, the victim gets all fuzzy.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: [smashes Joker's hand]
Joker: [pause, no reaction] See?
Joker: Madness is like gravity. All it takes is a little push.
Batman/Bruce Wayne: I have only one rule
Joker: Then that's the rule you got to break
Harvey Dent: The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.
From The Dark Knight Rises (2012):
Bruce Wayne/Batman: Oh, now you're showing off.
Lucius Fox: Defence Department project for tight-geometry and pacification. Rotors are configured to manoeuvre between buildings without recirculation.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: What's it called?
Lucius Fox: Oh, it has a long uninteresting Wayne Enterprises designation. I just took to calling it the Bat. And yes, Mr Wayne, it does come in black. Works fine, except for the autopilot. It takes a better mind than mine to fix it.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: Better mind?
Lucius Fox: Well, I was trying to be modest. A less busy mind. Yours.
Alfred: Is it really painful?
Bruce Wayne/Batman: Well, You're welcome to try it, Alfred.
Alfred: Happy watching, thank you, sir.
Lucius Fox: I like your girlfriend, Mr Wayne.
Selina Kyle: He should be so lucky.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: So now you're trying to set me up with a jewel thief?
Alfred: At this point, I'd set you up with a chimpanzee if it'd brought you back to the world!
Bruce Wayne/Batman: What does that mean? [referring to the prisoners' chants]
Selina Kyle: You could've gone anywhere. Been anything. But you came back here.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: So did you.
Selina Kyle: I guess we're both suckers.
Bane: We both know that I have to kill you now. You'll just have to imagine the fire!
Selina Kyle: [Catwoman shoots Bane] About the whole no guns thing? I just don't feel as strongly about it as you do.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: [on a rooftop, Batman turns away from Selina, then turns back and realizes she is gone] So that's what that feels like.
Fox: [about The Bat] She fly pretty well?
Bruce Wayne/Batman: Even without the Autopilot...
Fox: Autopilot? That's what you're there for!
Selina Kyle: [getting into The Bat] My mother warned me about get into cars with strange men.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: This isn't a car.
John Blake: I showed your picture to the congressman.
Selina Kyle: Is he still in love?
John Blake: Oh, head over heels! Pressing charges, though.
Selina Kyle: Mr Wayne... I'm sorry they took all your money.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: No, you're not.
Fr. Reilly: You dumb bitch!
Selina Kyle: Nobody ever accused me of being dumb.
Selina Kyle: He's behind you.
Bane's Mercenary: Who!?
Bruce Wayne/Batman: Me.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: Those are lovely pearls. My mother had a pair just like them. [walks over to the safe] But that's impossible because her's are in the safe, [opens it] which the manufacturer said was uncrackable.
Selina Kyle: Oops. No one told me it was uncrackable.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: I'm afraid I can't allow you to leave with those.
Selina Kyle: Look, you wouldn't beat up a woman sooner than I would beat up a cripple. [knocks cane from Bruce and he crashes to the ground] Although sometimes exceptions have to be made. [opens a window and perches on it] Goodnight Mister Wayne. [flips out window]
Selina Kyle: There's a storm coming.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: You sound like you're looking forward to it.
Selina Kyle: I'm adaptable.
Selina Kyle: You shouldn't have...
Bruce Wayne/Batman: To start it, throttle...
Selina Kyle: I got it!
Lucius Fox: I call it The Bat. And yes, Mr Wayne, it does come in black.
Bruce Wayne/Batman: It's a brazing costume for a cat-burglar.
Selina Kyle: Oh, yeah? Who are you pretending to be?
Bruce Wayne/Batman: My WIFE?
Bruce Wayne/Batman: I NEED you to get me back in the game!
