Author has written 14 stories for Silmarillion, Homer, Greek Mythology, and Shakespeare.
I am a (square number) divisible by (1/2 x 4), and I am (3 x 2) years older than my sister who is not a square number, but is divisible by (1/2 x 4) and (20/4). My sister is under (90/3). You didn't have to figure that out, but if you just did, I commend you. Even though it was easy.

I live somewhere by the Ocean and under the Sky. Indice: J'habite ou on a deux langues nationaux.

Now that my interests have become, strangely enough, numerous, I do not have the patience to condense them into a nice little paragraph. So, I will just make a little list of all the people I have to thank for making my life what it is (what it is, by the way, is something I would refrain from discussing).

- Tolkien: The most important one, because he's the one who started it all. That could be considered a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it. The Silmarillion is the Greatest, and Fëanor is the Greatest of the Great.

- Homer: The Iliad is just the greatest story ever told, hands down. And I know the guy may not have existed but I have to thank someone for Achilles... I mean, the brilliant tale.

- Shakespeare: Technically, he started it all, but that's a minor detail. Everyone just ought to thank him in general. What could it hurt? And let us especially thank Mercutio and Hamlet.
