Author has written 5 stories for Naruto, and Hetalia - Axis Powers.
I guess this is where I say stuff about myself, so, here goes.
My real name is Teresa (I will withold my last name for privacy reasons, but you can put in any name you wish. It'll probably be more interesting than mine, as It's one of the most common names in America.) but you can call me by any of my nicknames: Tess, Tessie, Tesa, Tesa-kun, Tees Tees, Tess Tess, Tessta, Teesta, Tehesa, Risa, Arisa,Tesmirelda, Tesseroo, Terrific Teresa, Tatoo-ed Tellulah, Polly, Gitchee Gumee, Manga Mama, Soseji, Frankenstein's Bride, Sparkly Sasquatch... errr... never mind about the last couple, they're too wierd and embarrasing.
I am a 19 year old girl (please don't say woman. My mind-set is too young for that). I have short, wavy, golden-blonde hair and golden eyes. (If only I could get a tan and then I'd be monochromatic!) I am rather short (5'3") and my face, though angular, is rather childish, so people rarely believe me when I tell them how old I am. They generally say something rude, like, "No way! You can't be 18! You're too short! You look, like, 15!" (Once, a lifeguard at our pool thought I was under 12 and needed a swimband.) I sometimes just want to go Edward Elric Style on them, and be all like, "WHO ARE YOU CALLING SMALL? I'LL BREAK OFF YOUR FEET AND STICK 'EM ON YOUR HEAD!!!!!!!" But I don't. sigh. My birthday is September 22 (same as Shikamaru's!) which makes me a Virgo. I have 5 siblings. ( I'm the 3rd)
I am from North-Eastern Pennsylvania in America. No, I am not fat. I am only 111 Lbs., which is probably a little underweight for my size. Nor am I stupid. I got a 1970 out of a possible 2400 on the SAT (the average score is 1490) and my GPA is 3.89 out of 4.0 which, though not amazing, is above average. So no stupid, fat American stereotypes from you people! I must admit that I love my Ice-cream, and I probably couldn't live without burgers, but it's not all I eat. I think another stereotype is being loud and over-friendly. I can be like that when I'm with people, but not all the time.
I absolutely love where I live. I get to experience all the seasons in their full glory. However, it can get rather cold. It's not unnatural for the thermometer to drop to single digits in the winter, and it can go up to a little over 100 degrees F. in the summer. Still, it's never unbearable. The unfortunate thing is that it's very humid, so the summers are sweaty and muggy and the winters are icy and damp. I also have any form of nature all within an hour's drive: forests, fields, hills, mountains, waterfalls, lakes, beaches, rivers, creeks, caves, you name it. Well, we don't have any deserts nearby, I dont think... Anyway, I love exploring nature and have all the means to do it, so I'd be happy to live here for the rest of my life!
My character is rather spontaneous. I love people, and children especially. I've never really met someone I've disliked, because even if I dislike a certain characteristic, there's always something good I can find in everyone. I have very good friends in all age ranges, and though others might raise an eyebrow when they see me hanging out with a twelve-year-old, I think that age doesn't matter at all, so it doesn't bother me. I'm pretty carefree. Everything's cool with me and I prefer to keep everything chill, so I often avoid arguments. I guess I'm a 'Que sera, sera' type of girl. However, if I think it's an important matter, I'm more stubborn than a mule. I have been since childhood. For instance: I can't hold a grudge for more than a minute.(I subconciously start singing and then I forget my grudge.) However, once, when I was about 5 years old, my best friend insulted my older brother. I refused to speak to her for three days until she came and apoligized to him. I guess I get very up in arms about the people I care about, but it worked! Another time, my brother and another boy got in a fight at a party. I was probably about 7. Things started to get messy, and the boy punched my brother in the face. As soon as I saw blood, I flipped. I picked up a hockey stick and slammed him with all my tiny, 7-year-old girl might. His face got pretty messed up and his whole family left the party. I did honestly feel bad about hurting him, but if I re-did that day I would probably do it again. No one messes with my family and gets away with it! Or... maybe it was just my brother. I totally idolized him. I definitely have a brother-complex.
My favorite things are Anime, little kids, sparkles, and donuts. My hobbies are shopping, dancing, singing, acting, sewing, crafting... ya know, the girly stuff. I also was to learn how to throw knives, shoot guns and bows, breakdance, parkour... ya know, the manly stuff. I am a walking ball of contradictions.
I have no real talents, so I often get depressed. When I do, I like to think of what Tohru Honda said:
"If you think of someone's good qualities as the umeboshi in an onigiri, it's as if their qualities are stuck to their back! People around the world are like onigiri. Everyone has an umeboshi with a different shape and color and flavor. But because it's stuck on their back, they might not be able to see their umeboshi. "There's nothing special about me. I'm just white rice." That's not true. There is an umeboshi on your back. Maybe the reason people get jealous of each other, is because they can see so clearly the umeboshi on other people's backs."
Tohru Honda, Fruits Basket Volume 2.
I like to think that other people see good qualities in me that I can't, but I'm not sure.
I have many interests. I'm basically interested in everything that comes my way, because I think one of the most important things in this world is to be open minded. So, generally, as soon as I hear of something new, I try it. I don't take what people say for granted until I try something myself and form my own opinion. Consequently, I hate it when people pre-judge things baselessly. I also hate racists, feminists, sexists and anyone else who judge based on appearance or some such petty reason.
The people who annoy me the most are hypoctrites and judgemental, close minded fools who never give anyone or anything a chance before judging them. I'm also not very good with sensitive people, as I'm rather frank. The people I admire most are hard working, honest people who never take from others what they can provide themselves. I like people who have pride and integrity and don't let anyone get in the way of what they believe in or reach for. I'm a bit of an idealist in that sense.
My view of the world is what I would consider as that of an optimistic realist. I see things as they are but have hope that they can get better. My motto would probably be:
"Think the best, prepare for the worst, and expect nothing." In other words, Think the best of people and they may rise to the challenge. Prepare for the worst and it can't surprise you. Expect nothing of anyone, and when you recieve nothing, you won't be disappointed. This is my advice to live a life happily with people!
When I was younger I wanted to be an actress and then a fashion designer, but now I plan on writing children's books based on folk tales from around the world. I also dream of going to Japan. I get very nervous about the future because College is coming up and everyone is pushing me to decide what I want to do with my life. So I get a little worked up. Whenever I do, I remember an epic quote from Fruits Basket that has saved me so many times:
"For example let's say that you are surrounded with a mountain of laundry piled so high around your feet that you can't move. Are you with me? Now, let's assume you don't have a washing machine, so you have to wash everything individually by hand. You would be at a loss for what to do, right? You'd worry about if you could ever wash everything, if you could get it all clean, if you'd ever have time for anything but laundry ever again! The more you'd think about it, the more anxious you'd get. But the time keeps passing, and the laundry doesn't wash itself. So what do you do? It might be a good idea to start washing the laundry right at your feet. Of course it's important to think about what lies ahead, too, but if you only look at what's down the road you'll get tangled in the laundry at your feet and you'll fall, won't you? You see, it's also important to think about what you can do now, what you can do today. And if you keep washing things one at a time, you'll be done before you know it. Because fortune is looking out for you. Sometimes the anxiety will start to well up, but when it does, take a little break. Read a book, watch TV, or eat soumen with everyone."
Shigure Sohma, Fruits Basket Volume 8
I love that analogy. It always helps me.
The most important things in my life right now are my job at a daycare and anime and manga. I've watched alot of them: Naruto, Naruto Shuppuden, Full Metal Alchemist, Fairy Tail, Fruits Basket, Soul Eater, Inuyasha, Death Note, Shugo Chara, Clannad, Ouran Highschool Host club, Hetalia and a whole lot more. As you can see, my tastes in animes vary quite a bit. I love anime and think that we can learn alot from them. That's why it makes me angry when people scoff at me for watching them (mainly my family.)
My favorite anime girls ( i don't have many 'cuz I rarely like them) are:
1. Tohru Honda- Fruits Basket
2. Hinata Hyuuga- Naruto
3. Erza Scarlet- Fairy Tail
4. Kagome Higurashi- Inuyasha
5. Riza Hawkeye- Full Metal Alchemist

I guess that's my motherly instinct shining through!

1. Kyoru- Kyo/Tohru- Fruits Basket
2. Naruhina- Naruto/Hinata- Naruto/ Naruto Shippuden
3. Edwin- Ed/Winry- FMA
Random stuff about me:
I randomly start singing and dancing. It doesn't matter if I'm in the house or out in public. I just do it. Strangely, people rarely give me looks. They must do it too.
I listen to just about every kind of music. Recently, I've been listening to more hard rock. (Papa Roach, 3 Day's Grace, Skillet, Breaking Benjamin ect.) I also love soundtracks(Naruto Shippuden soundtrack makes me cry!), musicals/Broadway( Les Miserables and Scarlet Pimpernell especially.), and movie scores(especially Dreamworks' Spirit and Prince of Egypt. They're so good!) I also like listening to foreign music, classical, and oldies rock. recently, I've also taken a liking to big band 40s music and stuff.
I love everything foreign, I guess. My dream is to travel the world, speaking the native languages of all the countries I go to. I love different cultures, religions, languages and customs. They are quite interesting!
I love to quote random shows, but it drives other people crazy. Probably 50% of what comes out of my mouth is from one movie or another.
I take great pleasure in superhero movies. I mean, who doesn't love superheroes? I wanted to be a superhero so badly when I was younger. Still do!The Avengers is probably the best movie I have ever seen. SUPERHEROES!!!! Captain America is my absolute favorite, though i also love Loki. My hero complex makes me want to save him! I also love crime shows such as Sherlock, and Psych, and spy movies like Bourne and Mission Impossible. I am also madly in love with Indiana Jones.
I love cartoons. Avatar: The Last Airbender is so good!!!Zuko, Sokka and Toph are my favorite characters. I also like Phineas and Ferb, Kim Possible, and Jonny Test. I also like the good old cartoons, like Tom and Jerry and Looney Toons. Never was a fan of Mickey Mouse, though. I also love Veggie Tales and Blues Clues, which are cartoon movies. I still watch them.
I love to read poetry, especially by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allen Poe, and William Shakespeare. I love Shakespeare's plays (especially The Merchant of Venice and Much Ado About Nothing.) and Dr. Seuss(dude's a genius!), as well as Winnie the Pooh. It's my Bible. I love children's books, too. Good ones, not stupid ones.
I'm rather superstitious. I throw salt over my shoulder when I spill it and hold my breath when I pass a graveyard.
My greatest fear is of throwing up. I know it's wierd, but it's pathalogical. It was once so bad that I would sob like a baby when I got the tiniest stomachache because I was so scared. Whenever someone mentioned throwing up, I would feel sick and start to tear up. If someone puked, I would stay away from them for a week afterward. It was really bad. I'm much better now, but still scared of it. my second worst fear is of fires and my third is of sharks. I was once afraid of dogs because one bit me in the face when I was little, but I got over it.
I firmly believe in aliens. Don't ask why. I just do. Never believed in fairies. Or unicorns. Or santa. But I believe in aliens.
My idols are Mother Teresa, Mhatma Ghandi, Pope John Paul II, Abraham Lincoln, and Alexander the Great.
I am really wierd about some stuff. I hate the sound of styrofoam and people eating. I absolutely hate people touching me gently. Like if I'm sitting on a couch with someone and her leg is resting against me gently, I kinda flip. I don't even like my own limbs resting together. I also have to eat my Beligian waffles a certain way. I start at one corner and eat two squares at a time, going around in a spiral until there's only one square left. I also have to bound up stairs two steps at a time. I always fall on the second-to-last step.
Perhaps the strangest thing about me is my teeth. My teeth have a very unique history of premature teeth, which I will now share, because I love to talk about my teeth.
When I was 6 weeks old, I was teething. 6 weeks, people! That's still an infant! My poor mom. She hated nursing me.
By the time I was 6 months old, I had a full set of teeth. (6 months is when most kids start teething.)
I began losing my teeth at 3 years old.
By age 9, I had gotten my 12 year molars and had a full mouth of grown-up teeth. (this looked ridiculous, of course. I looked somewhat like a beaver.) Fortunately, I have a very large mouth, so they could all fit.
At 13, I showed signs of having my wisdom teeth growing in. The dentists ignored it, because wisdom teeth don't start to appear until age 18.
By age 15, the dentists realized that I was an exception. Not only did I have my wisdom teeth growing in at such a young age, but I also had 8 of them. That's twice the maximum amount! (most people only get a couple. The most anyone ever has is 4.)
Soon after turning 16, I had an operation to have all 8 of them pulled out. I wanted to keep them in, but the dentists thought it might crowd my mouth. It was a strange experience, being under anesthesia. However, I was up and about the next day, so I never got the full effects of having an operation. Pity.
Now I believe my strange history of premature teeth functions is over. (I pray to God that they don't start falling out when I'm 30!) I am proud of my teeth because they are straight and white and perfect. I have never needed fillings or braces and have never had a cavity, so I am happy. However, as a wise man once said, "Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty heart before the fall." I must make sure to be careful or I may knock my teeth out. That would be very sad.
As for my fanfictions, I have alot of ideas, but no time to write the stories. Once I get time and write a couple chapters, I might start putting them up. I swear in advance, that when I write a story, I will not stop it, even if I run into writer's block. I will never abandon a fic. So if there's ever a fic that hasn't been updated for a couple months, I'm probably dead, and in that case, would want someone to take it over for me. Hopefully, that won't happen, though.
My fics will be mostly Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Drama, Tragety, Fluff, and Friendship. I like that kind of thing. I may write some other genres, but probably not many. Probably no romance either, sorry. I really suck at writing romance.
