Hi. If you actually take the time to read biographies, then great! If not, just skip down to the bottom like I know you so desperately want to. I hope you like my stories. =)
About my unusual penname: Astrid Goes For A Spin: it's a turning point. Besides being an absolutely beautiful piece of music, it opens something. One plotline is fulfilled - the crush - and a new one is opened within two minutes. I love it.
I am a flutist. I am score obsessed. I am fairly illiterate in all things music. I do, however, adore John Powell ("See You Tomorrow", anyone?) and John Williams (especially his creepy songs like "The Face of Voldemort" and "Apparition on the Train"). I've reached the fan level in which I can identify a song from HTTYD within seconds. And do I even have to add that the HTTYD score is just about the most perfect album in existence?
*Something that has come to my attention: a recent surge of popularity in a few of my older stories has me shivering with mortification. I beg of you: check the date on them and remember that I have (hopefully) grown with my skills. Avoid those old stories like plague. They shame me.
Back to business!
I have a bizzare obsession with anything (validity required) How To Train Your Dragon, and have enough documents on it to choke a horse. It's held its position of fame for a long time. I've come to the conclusion that it was a special gift from God to me. It's likely the reason I'm not drowning in depression and anxiety because of my chronic illnesses.
I also love Harry Potter. I wear shirts, dress up, and laugh and cry. JK Rowling used to be my favorite author, but since the Casual Vacancy (starkly different from HP) Kristin Cashore (author of the Graceling Realms trilogy) has risen to the occasion. Look her up.
If you're a Harry Potter person, check out my stories on Mugglenet; Snowlily is the author name. [Or, you know, don't. They're mortifyingly old, and disgustingly inferior to...well, they stink. I'd prefer if you ignore them.]
I am an admin (a very inexperienced and clumsy admin) on Sticks and Stones. I have a DeviantArt page that I've mostly been ignoring for two years (I went a little joining-groups-crazy when I tried to help forward the petition a long time ago), but I'm resurrecting that and hope to start posting crocheting soon to show off to colleges.
I'm a senior in high school, and crochet like my life depends on it. Mostly busywork for charity, and gifts, and a lot of tapestry crochet. (Which is this supercool way to alternate colors in grid patterns; I do words, sayings, symbols, and dragons.)
I'm a canon shipper. End of story. (Most of the time.) Harry and Ginny, Ron and Hermione, Katara and Aang, Vin and Elend, Katsa and Po, Bitterblue and Saf, Brigan and Fire, and especially, especially Hiccup and Astrid.
I suffer from IBS, nerve damage/pain, central sensitization syndrome, headaches, fatigue, anxiety, and sometimes depression. Prayers and comments are always welcome!
When I was in middle school, I wrote two award-winning pieces for JCL. That gave me a big head for a while.
I plan to go into book publishing, because my purpose here is to be a part of creating art like HTTYD that helps people like me. My skill set strays more toward the written word, and that's okay. If you need a beta reader, I'm open!
I was absent from the internet for seven months recently, but I'm back and plan never to vanish again.
I hope you've enjoyed learning about my life, and I hope you'll enjoy anything I can give. Just remember : reviews are love. XD
