Author has written 1 story for Blue Exorcist/青の祓魔師.

First of all allow me to blow your mind:

This sentence is grammatically and semantically correct:

"That that that that that student used is wrong is obvious."

Mind blown. Or at least mine was initially. Now it just makes me giggle and reminds me why English is a much harder language to learn than I give it credit for. -

So What am I Supposed to be Slaving Over?

At the moment I have a couple of Fanfictions in the works but none -save one- are far enough along or fleshed out enough for me to actually want to put the effort into mentioning them (although I guess I just did).

That being said there is one that was a one shot but, yeah, I am fundamentally incapable of actually writing a one shot that stays a one shot it seems. For those who have read it (and is the probable pathway by which you found my account) I am in fact referring to Joint Custody. Let me go into what exactly is happening with this one.

  • There is no set release date for any chapters, I don't have the means by which to guarantee a set release schedule. Time is not my friend. It is terrified of me and has made itself scarce so don't be expecting a weekly or really even a monthly release. (That being said, I find when I get reviews I tend to want to make more time to write a chapter)
  • As of now it is marked as complete and will stay that way because every chapter I post will by no means require another one to continue the story and it will stay that way until that changes.
    Well shoot...it seems that until I post the next chapter, I can't rightfully say that the last chapter does not require the next one to be deemed complete. So until I post chapter 11 and end this little bit of Plot concerning Mephy-dearest, I will have to mark my story as incomplete - is it strange that this kills me a little inside?
  • Chapter Ten:POSTED! YAYA!
  • Chapter Eleven: It'll be up when it's up :)
  • Anyways, continuing.

    Maybe it's just me, but I'm never really sure what I should write here...

    I'll figure it out eventually but until then I'll just settle with this.

    I'm finding myself to be surprisingly vain as I can never resist the urge to go back and reread my reviews over and over and over. I mean let's be honest here: there reaches a point where it truly is far too excessive and I have long since exceeded that point.

    Also, I have nasty habit of starting stories and getting bored with them so never finishing them, or maybe taking years to finish a chapter because I forget about it or get writers block, because of this I've established a rule: Either finish the story before I post it or only write one-shots. However, I don't particularly like one-shots as I feel they don't really get started or end well enough so the ones I do write on my computer never seem to stay one-shots. Also, I have a tendency to get the craziest ideas for stories at the most inopportune times so I can never seem to get them down on paper before I forget them. Does this happen to anyone else or is it just me? ... It's just me isn't it?

    Well, that's enough for my self introduction. I think that's all that is important...except for maybe the fact that I'm utterly adorable. Anyways, I should probably stop now before I start ranting about nonsensical nothingness and why it applies to all of our lives.

    And So Begins the Chaos (Or the Nonsensical Nothingness that I warned you about, whichever title you prefer):

    Okay, so I don't know if anyone has noticed yet - I know I've only posted one fanfic as I've been so uninspired recently - but I like love quotes. I may actually be addicted to them. Anyways as a result I have decided to list some of my favorites here because I simply can't resist sharing them with the world and I figure if you've made the effort to actually come to this page I should leave you with something meaningful ;)

    "People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do."
    Isaac Asimov

    "A day without Sunshine is like, you know, night."
    Steve Martin

    "I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should of been more specific."
    Lily Tomlin

    "I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by."
    Douglas Adams

    "I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me."
    Fred Allen

    "By all means lets be open-minded, but not so open-minded that are brains drop out."
    Richard Dawkins

    "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die."
    Mel Brooks

    "Any fool can know. The point is to understand."
    Albert Einstein

    "Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world. Mortal or immortal, few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds -- justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can't go on. To really ask is to open the door to the whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner."
    Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat

    "Popular culture is a place where pity is called compassion, flattery is called love, propaganda is called knowledge, tension is called peace, gossip is called news, and auto-tune is called singing."
    Criss Jami

    "Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you."
    Friedrich Nietzsche

    "“Oh," the girl said, shaking her head. "Don't be so simple. People adore monsters. They fill their songs and stories with them. They define themselves in relation to them. You know what a monster is, young shade? Power. Power and choice. Monsters make choices. Monsters shape the world. Monsters force us to become stronger, smarter, better. They sift the weak from the strong and provide a forge for the steeling of souls. Even as we curse monsters, we admire them. Seek to become them, in some ways." Her eyes became distant. "There are far, far worse things to be than a monster.”"
    Jim Butcher, Ghost Story

    "But these weren't the kind of monsters that had tentacles and rotting skin, the kind a seven-year-old might be able to wrap his mind around--they were monsters with human faces, in crisp uniforms, marching in lockstep, so banal you don't recognize them for what they are until it's too late."
    Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

    "After all, when you come right down to it, how many people speak the same language even when they speak the same language?"
    Russell Hoban

    "If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers."
    Doug Larson

    "It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language which is chiefly made by men to express theirs."
    Thomas Hardy

    "The common behavior of mankind is the system of reference by means of which we interpret an unknown language."
    Ludwig Wittgenstein

    "Like everything metaphysical the harmony between thought and reality is to be found in the grammar of the language."
    Ludwig Wittgenstein

    "The four most beautiful words in our common language: I told you so."
    Gore Vidal

    "If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."
    Nelson Mandela

    "Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."
    Mark Twain

    "Tears are the silent language of grief."
    Voltaire

    "Obviously no language is innate. Take any kid from any race, bring them up in any culture and they will learn the language equally quickly. So no particular language is in the genes. But what might be in the genes is the ability to acquire language."
    Steven Pinker

    "Gossip is certainly one of the things that language is useful for, because it's always handy to know who needs a favor, who can offer a favor, who's available, who's under the protection of a jealous spouse. And being the first to get a piece of gossip is like engaging in insider trading: You can capitalize on an opportunity before anyone else can."
    Steven Pinker

    "Language is a more recent technology. Your body language, your eyes, your energy will come through to your audience before you even start speaking."
    Peter Guber

    "We should never denigrate any other culture but rather help people to understand the relationship between their own culture and the dominant culture. When you understand another culture or language, it does not mean that you have to lose your own culture."
    Edward T. Hall

    "The language you are about to hear... is disturbing."
    Dave Chappelle

    "I think I developed language skills to deal with threat. It's the girl thing to do-you know, instead of pulling out a gun."
    Barbara Kruger

    "I think we're still in a muddle with our language, because once you get words and a spoken language it gets harder to communicate."
    Jane Goodall

    "The thinking is that we started evolving language not by speaking but by gesturing."
    Frans de Waal

    "Love can be understood only 'from the inside,' as a language can be understood only by someone who speaks it, as a world can be understood only by someone who lives in it."
    Robert C. Solomon

    "There are two possibilities: Either the kiss is a human universal, one of the constellation of innate traits, including language and laughter, that unites us as a species, or it is an invention, like fire or wearing clothes, an idea so good that it was bound to metastasize across the globe."
    Joshua Foer

    “God made man stronger but not necessarily more intelligent. He gave women intuition and femininity. And, used properly, that combination easily jumbles the brain of any man I’ve ever met.”
    ~Farrah Fawcett

    "Innocence as we understand it in our culture is very theatrical. The flip side is, if you're charming enough, you can get away with anything."
    Susan Choi

    "Cute is when your personality shines through your looks. Like, when you see someone's personality in the way they walk and you just feel like hugging them every time you see them."
    Natalie Portman

    "I would just love once to be called sexy. Just because it would make me something other than cute."
    Jennifer Love Hewitt

    "Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."
    Harvey Fierstein

    I have so many more that I'll probably eventually add at some later date but for now this will do.

    What's the best way to get to know me?

    Well if you really want to get to know me that bad that you're actually reading this then one I'm a little worried for my safety and two were the quotes I enjoy not enough to tell you what kind of person I might be?

    Or you could read my fanfiction...

    Or you know, I could tell you about the type of books I read...I guess...my all time favorite fiction is hands down Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Love love love. I also enjoyed the original Dracula when I read it but because I don't like the ... style I suppose I'd call it ... of the writing I'd probably never read it again. >_> I kind of feel bad for saying that. I read The Scarlet Pimpernel every Christmas. The Prince and the Pauper is probably the only Mark Twain book I've read twice - but I've read most of his other popular ones. I very much disdain the Twilight series although I do understand why so many people were drawn to it (though I certainly wasn't one of them and I did read all of them *ugh* so I have the right to say I don't like them). Tolkien is amazing. I have The Hobbit and the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, as well as a leather bound version of all three combined that I keep enshrined in my room. (I'd buy one for Frankenstein if I could find one but alas...) I love almost all of Poe's works (poems and stories), and I only say almost because I haven't read all of them quite yet (although I'm certainly very close). There aren't a lot of modern day stuff that I have read and enjoyed so for the most part I shy away from recently written works. That being said I have read a few I really enjoyed, one of my favorite trilogies includes the books Scar Night, Iron Angel, and God of Clocks by Alan Campbell, although the ending was rather...disappointing (I was highly unsatisfied but I also don't like endings so I may be partial). When I was really really young I remember reading a bunch of the Goosebumps series around Halloween, but I don't remember how much I enjoyed them. I like C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia, though I don't think I'd say I loved it. It was good light reading. I love Shakespeare (including Romeo and Juliet, but probably not for the reason a lot of people like as I'm not really that into romances) I've read a ton more, but I don't really feel like typing them all out - most of them are classics though or fantastical. I'm not really big on non-fiction, though I do occasionally read books on philosophy and the like (as well as some medieval history stuff).

    As a side note, if you ever want to suggest a book to me I'm always on the look out for something new and would gladly welcome it.

    Oh and I love manga and anime (including Manwha and Chinese Mangas...not sure what those are called), although I prefer reading as opposed to watching (a petty preference but whatever). I've read/watched Naruto (sigh), Bleach (bigger sigh), Inuyasha, Hellsing, Blue Exorcist, Noblesse, Kubera, Magician, Kamisama Hajimemashita, Maid-sama, Ouran High School Host Club, Fairy Tail, One Piece (the only one I've never actually 'read' and only watched actually O.o not sure why), Tower of God, Rain, Dengeki Daisy, Soul Eater (knew I was forgetting a big one KID!), Itsuwaribito Utsuho, Yugioh (ah my childhood how I miss you-but only the original), and many many many many more. I could never remember them all to be honest. This is just a concise list of the big ones that a lot of other people may have read. I'll admit I haven't kept up with the ones that are still coming out as I've been busy or lost interest...(Bleach...even...Naruto [which is actually finished I believe *le gasp* talk about closing a chapter in one's life!!] TT-TT Gaara I still love you though!!) but for the most part I'm up to date or finished reading them.

    That's all for now folks - unless I later see I forgot to mention something. Which I probably will but will still be too lazy to go back and fix it, but whatever. -

    Huggles*

    The Girl Who Speaks of Sunflowers by speaks reviews
    The first time the trio neared the ocean together, Mugen told Jin and Fuu in passing that all streams led back to the sea. For some reason they both remembered his words. Maybe this was why not one of the three looked back when they parted ways.
