I'm a girl, I'm Jewish, I'm 17, and I love to read, draw, and sing.
My avatar/profile picture is a doodle I drew, took a photo of, and then edited in iPhoto; it was inspired by the book 'Shadow of Night' by Deborah Harkness, book #2 in the All Souls Trilogy, and is up for free download on my DeviantArt.
I don't technically fit the parameters to advertise myself as a beta reader, but I'm really good at editing out grammatical errors and such, so if you're looking for someone to help out with that just message me.
Quotes I love:
"My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel" - A Song of Ice and Fire
"If you're going through hell, keep going" - Winston Churchill
"But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep" - Robert Frost
"We accept the love we think we deserve." - Perks of Being a Wallflower
"You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That's where I'll always love you. That's where I'll be waiting." - Peter Pan
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it my be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye." - Ms.Piggy
Why do we read fanfiction?
Because 87% of all original endings suck.
Because 95% of all plot twists are either predictable or stupid.
Because your favorite characters always die.
Because sometimes evil deserves to win.
Because sometimes authors just don't know which of their own characters go together best.
Because most authors aren't willing to write multiple versions of their stories just so we can see every possibility that arises.
Because all stories shouldn't have an ending; there should always be another adventure.
Because sometimes there's no one your age and gender who you can relate to.
Because sometimes you want to be in that story yourself.
Because sometimes you have no other way to express the ideas in your head.
Because it's an escape.
