Hello everyone and I bid thee welcome to my profile!
Who I Am
I'm an aspiring writer who aims to write her own original work someday, as I've been writing since the second grade and haven't stopped. I enjoy all sorts of books and topics but, don't read much slash as I'm not a big fan of it. But for those of you who do write it, spot on. I tend to be a bit of a klutz (biggest understatement of the year) and I enjoy the company of pretty much everyone. I'm not a fan of flames but I do encourage people to give me good, solid criticism. I constantly want to improve my writing and I can't get there without your help.
Faith: I am a Roman Catholic and my faith is very strong, so no flames. Please respect my faith and we won't have problems. Thank you.
Sex: Female. Well duh, if you can't tell by the pen name then you're a baka.
Favorite Sayings: "Lose an electron, become positive!!!" - Me (I made it up in 7th grade)
"Bochikoi!!!" (Japanese for "Bring it on")
"The one who smiles the most is the one who's the most broken. The one who fights the most is the one who wants to find peace. The one who encourages others is the one who always feels useless. The one who seems insane is the one who is just following a life no one else understands, or will ever believe. Nor do they want to."
"Don't walk in front of me cause I may not follow, don't walk behind me cause I may not lead, but walk beside me and be my friend!"
"Don't follow in my footsteps, I tend to walk into walls."

Quotes by My Favorite Actors, Writers, Characters, etc:
“The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real ... for a moment at least ... that long magic moment before we wake. Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines.
Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true? We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.
They can keep their heaven. When I die, I'd sooner go to Middle Earth.” ― George R.R. Martin
“A writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, because everything she does is golden. In my view, a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.” – Junot Diaz
"I don't suffer from insanity but enjoy every minute of it." - Edgar Allen Poe
"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing." - Benjamin Franklin
"The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter." - Mark Twain
"We can't all be the heroes because someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by." - Will Rogers
"We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.” - Gary Oldman, Sirius Black
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” – Dr. Seuss
"The stories we love best do live in us forever, so whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home." - J.K. Rowling
"Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength, and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend." - I am not sure who said it, but thank you for summoning it up.
"Flash of light, searing pain, and then POOF! You're nothing more than a pile of ash!" - Bofur, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
"Loyalty, honor, a willing heart. I can ask no more than that." - Thorin Oakenshield, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Lady Galadriel: "Why a Hafling?"
Gandalf: "Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small, everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay . . . small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps it's because I am afraid and he gives me courage."
"But why is the rum gone?!"- Captain Jack Sparrow
"Ohana means family. Family means..." "... nobody gets left behind..." "...or forgotten." - Stitch and Nani, Lilo and Stitch
"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die" - Inigo Montoya, The Princess Bride

“Thanks for clearing the front door for us, but raiding the Decepticon warship was not on the activities list.” - Arcee, Transformers Prime
"Wait a minute, a grenade inside of Laserbeak, inside of Soundwave? Like a turducken!" - Raf, Transformers Prime
"I shouldn't have said that."- Rubius Hagrid, Harry Potter
"Destinies . . . are troublesome things." - Merlin
"It's lonely to be more powerful than any man you know and have to live like a shadow. To be special and have to pretend you're a fool. I know how it feels. I understand." - Merlin
"Why does everyone seem to think it's down to me to do something about it?" - Merlin
"He's shabby-looking, he has appalling manners, he's extremely forgetful, he seems to spend most of his time in the tavern . . . but he is my manservant. And to be honest, I quite like it that way." - Arthur on Merlin
"At least I don't look like a bone-idle toad. Maybe one day, you'll magically transform into a handsome prince . . but since magic's outlawed, that's probably never going to happen." - Merlin to Arthur

A black man walks into a cafe one early morning and noticed that he was the only black man there. As he sat down, he noticed a white man behind him. The white man said, "Colored people are not allowed here."
The black man turned around and stood up. He then said:
"When I was born I was black,"
"When I grew up I was black,"
"When I'm sick I'm black,"
"When I go in the sun I'm black,"
"When I'm cold I'm black,"
"When I die I'll be black."
"But you sir..."
"When you're born you're pink,"
"When you grow up you're white,"
"When you're sick, you're green,"
"When you go in the sun you turn red,"
"When you're cold you turn blue,"
"And when you die you turn purple."
"And yet, you have the nerve to call me coloured."
The black man then sat back down and the white man walked away...

You know you're weird when . . .
You consider Ratchet's wrench throwing to be an Olympic sport.
You lie awake every night staring at the ceiling and act out your FanFic's in your head. With out loud sound effects.
You argue with yourself and LOSE.
You find that living in an a world similar to your favorite TV show (and/or book, cartoon, movie, game series) would be more preferable than living in reality. Luckily for us, that's what writing is for.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: I DON'T write yaoi. NO SLASH!!! I have nothing against those who write it but I personally don't like it or enjoy it. I have yet to write a lemon, but hey *shrugs* it could happen.
I apologize for the long profile. If you read all of this, congrats. If not, that's fine too. But you never know what you may miss.
