Author has written 5 stories for Mulan, Prince of Persia, NCIS, and Star Wars.
hmm...what to put, what to put...
I am old enough to vote but not old enough to drink. I'm a Christian, simply put. A good friend of mine once described my sense of humor as "confusing and sardonic," so do with that what you will. I am majoring in international studies and anthropology, as I like learning about how people work and think and such, and I'm pre-law, with aims to work in human rights.
Reading is an obsession of mine. If I wasn't so interested in other people's cultures and governments, then I would major in English Lit, just so I could have an excuse to read more. I also have a passion for music, which is why I almost never do anything without it. I can't stand silence. Right now I'm listening to the composer Max Richter in a coffee shop that's playing some kind of horribly clashing pop song, but at least it's not quiet.
So I should probably give you guys the "essential" information. I guess. What even qualifies as essential information?
I answer every review I get. Even if you just leave something like "Nice story," I'm going to respond with a thank you. I always answer questions, so feel free to ask me anything, and if I don't reply it's unintentional and feel free to PM me or contact me again. I also love talking about the intricacies of the cannon and everything else really, so if possible I'm going to start a conversation with you. I'm sorry.
I have a fictionpress account if anyone is interested in that. Pen name is "The Furthest City Light." Mostly poetry. Mostly amateur poetry. Enjoy.
I have a poll going if anyone's interested. It's not about anything particularly important to you guys, but I'd love your input. I'm considering changing my penname. Tell me what you think?
On a side note, I have a fan fiction friend who's an awesome writer and is being nominated for a fan fiction grammy. Yeah, I know. She's awesome. The story she's being nominated for is called "This Time, for Sure" in the How to Train Your Dragon fandom, and here's the nominating site: fan fiction Grammy . weekly . com / nominate . html
Now enough ranting, onto the fun stuff!

I tend to like movie and video game soundtracks a lot. I love Hans Zimmer and John Williams. They're both brilliant composers, along with Two Steps From Hell which does the soundtrack for...Zelda, I think? I don't know. Not a gamer. But I love the soundtracks.

Honestly though I'm really picky about my books. And usually I either like something or hate it with every fiber of my being. And I go on rants. I'm sorry.
Honestly haven't seen a lot. Just Bleach, Naruto and Attack on Titan. I love Attack on Titan. It is wonderful and horrifying at the same time. I've also seen a little Fairy Tail, which is...kind of the exact opposite.

Favorite Actor: Tom Hanks, no doubt. Have you seen the movie Forest Gump? Oh and Hugh Jackman is up there too, if for no other reason than he was in Les Miserables. Enough said. And Christian Bale is always good. That's probably why I like The Prestige so much. It has both of them. And the guy that plays Alfred in the Batman movies. Also it screws with your head, so bonus.
Favorite Actress: Rosamund Pike, the chick from Gone Girl. She made the movie. I mean the plot was great too, I am giving Gillian Flynn all the credit there, but Rosamund Pike. Also, Natalie Portman. The girl is like wonder woman. She can play romantic leads, action leads, and anything else that I can't think of right now. Her performance V for Vendetta was fantastic. Otherwise...Anne Hathaway? I kind of accidentally followed her career ever since I was a wee little kiddie who liked the Princess Diaries movies. And I was honestly impressed with the lengths she went to in order to play her role in Les Miserables. I'm not in any way an advocate of anorexia or unhealthy weight loss, but she literally lost twenty pounds she shouldn't have to play Fantine, and I thought the dedication was impressive.
Favorite Director: Probably Wes Anderson, but I really, really, really like Christopher Nolan. Also Tim Burton if I want to be creeped out or have a sudden desire to see Helena Bonham Carter get killed tragically by Johnny Depp. Seriously that cannot be good couples' counselling. Maybe that's why they broke up?
Jesus had no servants, yet they called him Master...
He had no degree, yet they called him Teacher...
He had no medicine, yet they called him Healer...
He had no army, yet kings feared him...
He won no military battles, yet he conquered the World...
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him...
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today
It is my honor to serve such a leader who loves us...
Two Sides of a Coin-My first fic with this account! Its in the works, and a multi-chapter fic. Go check it out if you're interested. Word of warning though, it's on indefinite hiatus. I just can't seem to write for it. This one is for the Mulan fandom.
Crimson Snow-A short one-shot (a drabble really) for the Mulan fandom.
Through the Ages-I actually haven't watched NCIS in a long time. My friend told my that I should, but I really didn't want to miss anything. Thus, I am going through the ENTIRE series in order to define Tony and Gibbs's relationship better. And cuz it's fun. Don't forget the fun.
Crossroads of Destiny-This one is for Prince of Persia, and it's about Dastan's run through the marketplace in order to save his friend. I really like this movie, and it's too bad that it hasn't gotten more attention, because I really like the characters, and the setting and all of their relationships are so interesting.
Yugen-A fanfic for Star Wars which is basically a guilt-ridden afterlife Anakin talking to Obi-Wan and Yoda about his legacy, and what his whole journey means. Just a one-shot.
Can I put a general disclaimer on here? Cuz I'm never going to remember it for every chapter. Or every story even. Nope, not gonna happen. Anywho, while reading my stories, if you recognize a character, a place, a brandname, a song, book, author, actor or actress, director, playwrite, comedian or anything else you could possibly recognize, chances are, I don't own it. Actually, I'm positive I don't own it.
