Author has written 5 stories for Mass Effect.

[So... I'm a returning user. I was once Youkai Maiden, but that account withered away about five years ago. I don't plan on using it anymore, nor do I intend to move those fics to this new account (there were only two stories I would consider good enough to bring over here, anyway, and even they would need heavy revision).]

A (extensive) bit about me:

You can call me Mamba or Bri; I go by both.
My birthday is December 13, 1989, and I'm currently 22 years old.
I currently work as an overnight security guard at Murray State University.
I am studying Animal Health Technology at MSU.
I was once Pre-Vet, but changed my major.
I was at one time considering a double major in Japanese, but decided against it. However, I did study Japanese for three years.
I have a great interest in animals, biology, foreign languages, art, and English.
After I graduate (the end of this year) I hope to be an Licensed Veterinary Technologist (LVT).

Because of my multitude of interests, I have other career paths I want to take:
--Professor of English, Humanities, Biology, Zoology, Anatomy, etc... I enjoy so many things and want to pass it on to the next generation. I would love to be a professor in addition to being an LVT (and I know it's possible, because most of my professors have second jobs).
--Author. This could be anything from fiction to medical journal articles. I have a passion for writing and would love to be published.
--Illustrator. I have some serious problems with things like commissioned work of pieces that don't have my full interest. So, I couldn't be a run-of-the-mill artist or illustrator. However, I have a deep, meaningful relationship with the human and animal form and would love to illustrate Anatomy textbooks.

I'm a retired Anime Kid. I say "retired" because it's become less of an obsession. I'm way more picky about my anime and manga choices now.
I still follow the con circuit in my area. I go to MTAC and OMGCon. Last year, I also made it to SugoiCon.
I dabbled in cosplay a bit, but my costumes were amateur and a little sloppy. I no longer have the time needed to learn how to make things properly, so I've stopped cosplaying.

I have three children: two cats and a bearded dragon:

Alibell "Ali"
--spayed female
--4 years old (b-day Dec 18, 2007)
--domestic long hair
--white with black/brown patches and tail
--adopted from West Tennessee Animal Rescue at 6 months old

Phenyl "Phinny"
--neutered male
--2.5 years old (b-day May 2, 2009)
--domestic medium hair
--white with gray points
--bob-tailed (amputation due to his tail being caught in car door prior to his adoption)
--adopted from West Tennessee Animal Rescue at 9 weeks old

Toko "Dragon Lord Toko"
--fancy bearded dragon
--7 months old (b-day June 11, 2011)
--I think he's a sandfire, but don't hold me to that. He's from PetSmart, so his pedigree is questionable at best.
--has a spinal deformity due to early metabolic bone disease. Again, PetSmart. Wouldn't suggest getting reptiles from them.
--adopted from PetSmart at 3 weeks old

I will never date anyone that can't remember my pets' names.
My boyfriend, Matt, has five cats of his own (Kat Kat, Mayaa, K.T., Mona, and Simmi).
I had a part in raising Mona and Simmi, so I consider them mine, as well.
Matt and I have another cat, Kiki, who lives with some friends of ours. Kiki likes to be outside but our neighborhood isn't safe for her. When we move to a better place (a place with a yard) she will be coming with us.

I enjoy writing long biographies about myself that lists random facts. It's a good way to chronicle my interests and see how I've changed over the years.
These biographies are also a great way to pass time.

More random facts:

I love sushi and pork katsudon.
I have been to Japan, but have only been to six states within the US.
I was born in Tennessee, but I now live in Kentucky.
My favorite color is green.
I am a night person.
I'm gross. No really. I enjoy cleaning wounds and watching nasty, bloody surgeries.
I'm addicted to YouTube.
I love BioWare games and arcade fighting games. They are they only games I can complete, for some reason.

For anyone who might be interested, I have a couple of accounts laying around:
I spend a lot of time of this site. I don't post much anymore, but my favorites list is fantastic. Also, pictures of my pets can be found here. My babies are beautiful. GO LOOK AT THEM. :3
This is Matt. He's a photography enthusiast and takes some really amazing photos! If you like cats, you will enjoy his work!
This is my YouTube page. I just changed it over from an older account, so I'm starting everything over. I will have a VLog running in the next week or so.
