The username comes from a combination of my first and last name, translated back to their original language (roughly or literally) give or take a few details. I value wisdom - something I believe can only be achieved by learning from your mistakes, and if you're lucky, those mistakes will be made often.

Of Blood, Tears and Bonds Unbroken by daryl-dixon's-poncho reviews
"He didn't know what to say to comfort her; didn't have any words of wisdom or heartfelt reassurances to offer. Truth was, the world was a cold, bitter place; a place where morals blur and rules are stripped of their previous power. But he didn't tell her that. He just lent her an ear and listened, because that's what she needed most, and he knew it." Caryl. One-shot.

Rare by MyMadness reviews
Can the present be something neither the past or future could? And should it? This is my Anthony. Although I love him dearly, he is prone to getting things backwards. Thinking what should be said when he should say it instead. Or, saying the wrong thing completely. But that's alright. Edith is her own woman now – or trying hard to be – and she doesn't mind driving.

A Day, A Year, A Lifetime by eleanorc reviews
