A space dedicated to the divulgence of information - something I have never been fond of. Hmm. What to say.
I am a woman of varying natures. Be it highly erratic and impulsive to offering sage-like advice that has many staring at me in bafflement. I'm as likely to threaten to hit someone as I will be the one calming a situation. I can hit straight A's and yet still have moments of complete idiocy. I can cry at something silly, then in moments of death, I guarantee I will be the one with the mask of impassivity.
Currently, I am pondering the idea of becoming a doctor, or an anaesthetist. Neither sound particularly appealing as a nurse is what I am through and through, but eehh, I've toyed with the idea. It is not in any way related to wanting to impress the putative father. Or being drawn in by the money. One of them is less true than the other.
How can I sum myself up? Strangers have named me beautiful, mysterious and compassionate. But that makes me sound like some fairy-tale princess (which hah! Not even in my dreams). Friends have called me elegant, odd, anachronistic due to my love for old-fashioned things and peculiar way of speaking (so I opt to say 'cheerio ole bean' over the more accepted 'bye'... So sue me).
Hmm. I am in my twenties, becoming incredibly broody and instantly dashing that idea at how much time I would loose. I like being able to paint, make silk flowers, read for three hours straight or practice my spells and write in my Grimoire. I am an empathic psychic (feel free to ask me about that all you please - I'm always delighted to hear about others who either share the same abilities or are intrigued by it all) - I see ghosts, aura's etc. I am a witch, and I have no shame in admitting that. I just need to figure out how to get my grey wolf into England, and I'd be grand.
And! Were I to indulge in those earlier musing of obtaining a PhD, I would totally be an awesome witch-doctor.
As for writing... Well. Angst-riddled, terribly sappy, unrealistically idealistic... I am a sucker for happy endings... and then scoff at my own saccharinity. Or I'll be utterly brutal and murder off the main character. I do think, having looked back on earlier work and cringed horribly, that my level of ability has improved. Or so I hope. I would delete those of crapper skill, but I think they serve as a representation of my bettering. That, and honestly, the number of favourites they hold makes me think somewhere, someone would be mad at me should I tear them from existence. I'm probably being too optimistic, haha.
Projects in the Works
- Dissolving into Stars -
An Interstella 5555 fiction which gives an insight into Stella and Shep's relationship. Considering how much in love Shep is with Stella though there is no indication to having ever met her, I decided to change that. I am not following the movie perfectly, though I retain many cannon elements. It's angsty, it's romantic. It's basically how I wanted their story to be.
- A Walk on the Wild Side -
I actually have no intention of calling it that... But it fits. An AU piece, it would feature many of our beloved characters, including the wonderful animal that is wolf Link... who is found in a care centre for pets. There would be a heavy emphasis on magic,elements, circle castings and all thinks pertaining to a spiritual nature. Yet, unless I decide to change my plan, there would only be vague romance. The focus would be on returning Link to his Hylian self.
- Youth is the Codename for Stupidity/ Dead Before We Had Even Met-
[title clearly pending] A look into the childhood lives of Fire Emblem Awakening's Shepherds. It would showcase mostly Chrom and Robin's lives, but would also explore their interactions with others, their adaptations to different roles and... possibly even a meeting between the two ahead of that infamous field scene. It is 4 chapters in, but I have no intention of updating it just yet... I simply write it here so that should the idea be used before I get round to posting, I can show how I had the idea once upon a time.
Quotes Collected for My Happiness
"Destruction follows creation, but creation follows from destruction."
"We are the architects of our decisions, and we must live with those choices no matter how grave or glorious." - Assassin's Creed Revelations, Ezio Auditore Da Firenze.
You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." - Dr Seuss.
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but rising every time we fall" - Confucius.
"If you cry over loosing the sun, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars" - Rabindranath Tagore
"Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, but Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present."
"Don't criticize a person until you've walked at least a mile in their shoes. That way, when you do criticize them, your a mile away, and you have their shoes!" (I'm so childish...)
From the life I have, though it is considered corny - the little things in life do count the most. What I treasure is not my material items or pointless things. No, what I think has the most value is the things we take for granted - food, love, education, housing, family. I can say from experience that you honestly never know what you have until you lose it. Appreciate what you have while you can.
Every review I receive I try to immediately reply to. You have taken the time to both read and review, it is only right that I reply. Even if reviews are posted several years from now, you can guarantee I will drop a thank you at some point. Even something as simple as a, "yeah, it was good" makes me smile. Flame are used to toast marshmallows that I'll happily eat whilst laughing. I've called myself every name under the sun, good luck trying to be original.
To everyone who favourite-d my stories, me, or put me on their alerts: That kind of notice truly makes me smile, so thank you. Truly, I mean it, thank you. You guys and galls are more awesome than Doritos, and I freaking love me some Doritos.
Last note! "Don't take life too seriously... No one gets out alive."
