Author has written 8 stories for Person of Interest, Monk, and Doctor Who.
I am relatively new to fanfiction. I have written several original stories that I have not publicly published. My favorite books are Earthsoul Prophecies, Harry Potter, and I am currently fascinated by Dickens. Earthsoul Prophecies is a series that is quite popular in my local area but probably not available elsewhere. It's sort of like a mix between Lord of the Rings, Narnia, and Harry Potter. My favorite shows are Monk, Mentalist and Person of I nterest. And maybe psych
I'm preparing for the next big step in my life. I have been in several acting classes and am interested in maybe doing it for a living. I love learning about science and things of that nature. I love art and in my opinion science and art go hand in hand. Both are just as important to life as the other. I am also deeply religious. that said, I'm a mormon. No, not the origi,nal. 1) he's a guy and 2) he lived sixteen hundred years ago. Give or take.
Here is a brief description of The Earthsoul Prophecies: There are 7 basic ingredients that make up the Earth: Spirit, Light, Air, E"arth, Water, Fire and Flesh. The Earthsoul the the Soul of the Earth and is connected to everything. She grants certain people with the ability to control a certain ingredient. For example someone Gifted with Earth could make apples grow in winter. But when someone is Gifted with Spirit they can learn to utilize all seven Gifts. They are called a Dymas. All of these gifts can be used as weapons in battle.
Sometimes there are Dymas that begin to use their gift for an evil purpose and they become Agla'con. The main plot of the series is that the Earthsoul is dying and the Earthsoul is the only thing that stands in the way of Maeon (the Demon god) seizing control of everything. Basically if the Earthsoul dies, everything dies and the whole world becomes a part of Con'jithar (or Hell). The Agla'con and the bad normal people are trying to help Maeon to bring down the Veil and kill the Earthsoul. The Dymas and the good normal people are trying to find and use a certain Talisman to rejuvenate the Earthsoul.
general conference started today October 5. Just wanted to share some qu otes I liked:
"if you define a hypocrite as one who does not live up to what they know to be right, then we are all hypocrites. none of us are quite as Christlike as we should be." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
"doubt your doubts before you doubt you faith." also Pres. Uchtdorf
"The acorn of honest inquiry has often sprung it great oak trees of understanding." also Pres. Uchtdorf.
"never lose faith in your Father in Heaven." Elder Jeffery R. Holland
,"Remember that we are infinitely more than our infirmities and weaknesses." Elder Holland.
"though we may feel like a broken vessel, we must remember that the vessel is in the hands of the divine potter." Elder Holland.
these are the quotes that stood out to me. general conference concludes tomorrow. There are two more sessions left. the first one starts at 10 A.M. Mountain Daylight Time. you can stream it online, you can watch it on your smartphone, I'm pretty sure you could google it and it would lead you right there. I invite anyone who sees this to watch it. you on the internet anyway. why not watch something uplifting and inspiring.
And if anyone sees this after tomorrow no worries. we have conference every six months. the first weekend in april and october. and you can look up the talks online. but I invite everyone to watch conference. If you do, awesome. if you don't, okay. either way we can still be friends.
The following is a story from my uncle's book:
There was a boy by the name of Steve who was attending school in Utah. Brother Christianson taught at this particular school. He had an open-door policy and would take in any student that had been thrown out of another class as long as they would abide by his rules. Steve had been kicked out of his sixth period and no other teacher wanted him, so he went into Brother Christianson's class. Steve was told that he could not be late, so he arrived just seconds before the bell rang and he would sit in the very back of the room. He would also be the first to leave after the class was over. One day, Brother Christianson asked Steve to stay after class so he could talk with him. After class, Bro. Christianson pulled Steve aside and said, "You think you're pretty tough, don't you?"
Steve's answer was, "Yeah, I do."
Then Brother Christianson asked, "How many push-ups can you do?"
Steve said, "I do about 200 every night."
"200? That's pretty good, Steve," Brother Christianson said. "Do you think you could do 300?"
Steve replied, "I don't know... I've never done 300 at a time."
"Do you think you could?" Again asked Brother Christianson.
"Well, I can try," said Steve.
"Can you do 300 in sets of 10? I need you to do 300 in sets of ten for this to work. Can you do it? I need you to tell me you can do it," Brother Christianson said.
Steve said, "Well... I think I can... yeah, I can do it."
Brother Christianson said, "Good! I need you to do this on Friday."
Friday came and Steve got to class early and sat in the front of the room. When class started, Brother Christianson pulled out a big box of donuts. Now these weren't the normal kinds of donuts, they were the extra fancy BIG kind, with cream centers and frosting swirls. Everyone was pretty excited-it was Friday, the last class of the day, and they were going to get an early start on the weekend.
Bro. Christianson went to the first girl in the first row and asked, "Cynthia, do you want a donut?"
Cynthia said, "Yes."
Bro. Christianson then turned to Steve and asked, "Steve, would you do ten push-ups so that Cynthia can have a donut?"
Steve said, "Sure," and jumped down from his desk to do a quick ten.
Then Steve again sat in his desk. Bro. Christianson put a donut on Cynthia's desk. Bro. Christianson then went to Joe, the next person, and asked, "Joe do you want a donut?"
Joe said, "Yes."
Bro. Christianson asked, "Steve would you do ten push-ups so Joe can have a donut?" Steve did ten push-ups, Joe got a donut. And so it went, down the first aisle, Steve did ten pushups for every person before they got their donut. And down the second aisle, till Bro. Christianson came to Scott. Scott was captain of the football team and center of the basketball team. He was very popular and never lacking for female companionship. When Bro. Christianson asked, "Scott do you want a donut?" Scott's reply was, "Well, can I do my own pushups?"
Bro. Christianson said, "No, Steve has to do them."
Then Scott said, "Well, I don't want one then."
Bro. Christianson then turned to Steve and asked "Steve, would you do ten pushups so Scott can have a donut he doesn't want?"
Steve started to do ten pushups. Scott said, "HEY! I said I didn't want one!"
Bro. Christianson said, "Look, this is my classroom, my class, my desks, and my donuts. Just leave it on the desk if you don't want it." And he put a donut on Scott's desk.
Now by this time, Steve had begun to slow down a little. He just stayed on the floor between sets because it took too much effort to be getting up and down. You could start to see a little perspiration coming out around his brow. Bro. Christianson started down the third row. Now the students were beginning to get a little angry.
Bro. Christianson asked Jenny, "Jenny, do you want a donut?"
Jenny said, "No."
Then Bro. Christianson asked Steve, "Steve, would you do ten pushups so Jenny can have a donut that she doesn't want?" Steve did ten, Jenny got a donut.
By now, the students were beginning to say "No" and there were all these uneaten donuts on the desks. Steve was also having to really put forth a lot of effort to get these pushups done for each donut. There began to be a small pool of sweat on the floor beneath his face, his arms and brow were beginning to get red because of the physical effort involved. Bro. Christianson asked Robert to watch Steve to make sure he did ten pushups in a set because he couldn't bear to watch all of Steve's work for all of those uneaten donuts. So Robert began to watch Steve closely. Bro. Christianson started down the fourth row.
During his class, however, some students had wandered in and sat along the heaters located on the sides of the room. When Bro. Christianson realized this; he did a quick count and saw 34 students in the room. He started to worry if Steve would be able to make it.
Bro. Christianson went on to the next person and the next and the next. Near the end of that row, Steve was really having a rough time. He was taking a lot more time to complete each set.
Steve asked Bro. Christianson, "Do I have to make my nose touch on each one?"
Bro. Christianson thought for a moment, "Well, they're your pushups. You can do them any way that you want." And Bro. Christianson went on.
A few moments later, Jason came to the room and was about to come in when all the students yelled, "NO! Don't come in! Stay out!"
Jason didn't know what was going on. Steve picked up his head and said, "No, let him come in."
Bro. Christianson said, "You realize that if Jason comes in you will have to do ten pushups for him."
Steve said, "Yes, let him come in."
Bro. Christianson said, "Okay, I'll let you get Jason's out of the way right now. Jason, do you want a donut?"
"Steve, will you do ten pushups so that Jason can have a donut?" Steve did ten pushups very slowly and with great effort. Jason, bewildered, was handed a donut and sat down.
Bro. Christianson finished the fourth row, then started among those seated on the heaters. Steve's arms were now shaking with each pushup in a struggle to lift himself against the force of gravity. Sweat was dropping off of his face and, by this time, there was not a dry eye in the room.
The very last two girls in the room were cheerleaders and very popular. Bro. Christianson went to Linda, the second to last, and asked, "Linda, do you want a doughnut? Linda said, very sadly, "No, thank you."
Bro. Christianson asked Steve, "Steve, would you do ten pushups so that Linda can have a donut she doesn't want?"
Grunting from the effort, Steve did ten very slow pushups for Linda..
Then Bro. Christianson turned to the last girl, Susan. "Susan, do you want a donut?" Susan, with tears flowing down her face, asked, "Bro. Christianson, can I help him?"
Bro. Christianson, with tears of his own, said, "No, he has to do it alone, Steve, would you do ten pushups so Susan can have a donut?"
As Steve very slowly finished his last pushup, with the understanding that he had accomplished all that was required of him, having done 350 pushups, his arms buckled beneath him and he fell to the floor.
Brother Christianson turned to the room and said.
"And so it was, that our Savior, Jesus Christ, plead to the Father, "Into thy hands I commend my spirit." With the understanding that He had done everything that was required of Him, he collapsed on the cross and died - even for those that didn't want His gift. And just like some of those in this room, many choose not to accept the gift that was provided for them
