Author has written 4 stories for Lord of the Rings, D N Angel, and Fruits Basket.
My pen name on Fictionpress is Silent Starlight
Hair: Wavy, brown, long
Distinguishing features: I always carry a big black purse and a grey hoodie or a leather jacket (because I need it to ride on my motor scooter to school) everywhere I go. About 98 percent of the time you see me, I will be wearing jeans and a business shirt (because I love them!). Anyway, besides that, I will have either manga, a knitting project, a book, or some combination of these with me at all times. I can't stand sitting still, and yet my shrink says I don't have ADD (or OCD for that matter). Among my circle of friends I am known as the walking and talking English and Spanish dictionary, grammar nerd, and spelling nazi, and sewing wench. I'm the one they pester to beta their stuff. XD

I Like To: Hang around the library, sing, listen to music, walk in the woods, read books and fanfic, write, play piano, knit, cosplay, counted cross stitch, listen to audiobooks, tinker around with photoshop, and surf the web...I have too many hobbies.
I don’t like: Math, science, slash/yaoi (fluff and shounen-ai are okay), most un-canon fics, instant mashed potatoes, seafood, Mom's spaghetti (who puts sugar in spaghetti sauce? and it doesn't have enough meat either...), pizza (unless it's Little Caesar's or Domino's), playing videogames, or cleaning the bathrooms and the kitchen (both of which are my thankless jobs). Yes, I know I’m crazy. It’s not my fault. I was born that way.
I do not write (or read) most un-canon fics! I write the characters in the way the author intended them to be (if it's not an anime, the creators normally intend the pairings to straight). The author made their characters they way they are for a reason, and if you're going to skew their personalities, you might as well make your own characters.
Let Me Be Your Hero (DNAngel)
Pippin’s Snowflake (Lord of the Rings)
Teddy (Fruits Basket)
I’ve written more, but I took them off because they didn’t get good/many reviews and/or I was extremely ashamed of their poor quality. I’m working on putting up some more sometime in the near future, probably in the summer.
Future and Current:
"Heartbeat" (DNAngel) - I recently got into the whole "vampire" thing, and I know everyone writes vampire stories, but mine is better. Maybe. I'm not sure yet. This is one of the first fics I've done in a while where I posted before finishing. I'll play it by ear. I've got a basic idea of how things should go, but almost everything else is lucid. The title is subject to change as well. Please read it and give me feedback, it will help.
"The Oval Portrait" (DNAngel) - I've promised myself that I will finish it before posting, otherwise it'll never get done. I'm about halfway done (and stuck in semi-writers' block) but it's coming...albeit slowly. The only hint that I will give is that it was inspired by a short story by Edgar Allan Poe (isn't he awesome?) under the same title. So go read it and wait patiently!
Other than that, I have too many ideas bouncing around. I will have to make Doug organize for me.
Doug: Haha, fat chance.
MB: You better, or else I won’t know what to write.
Doug: Not my problem.
Well, that's me in a nutshell. I'm what the normal people call weird and what the weird people call normal. I guess I'm just walking on the lines, which is always fun, especially when exercising one's teenage skills at annoying one's parents and knowing what to say when. It's all good.
