Author has written 5 stories for Ranma, and Rurouni Kenshin.
'Sup. It's been awhile since I've gone to the trouble of updating this thing. Here are a few ground rules when it comes to reading some of my stuff: I respect criticism, because it creates a better story. I may be writing the story for myself, but I'm also writing it for your own enjoyment, and I'd like nothing more than to create your ideal story as well as mine. On the flip side, I reserve the right to defend my choices and feel reasonably offended should you go out of your way to hurt my feelings. I hope you consider my work worthwhile, and what doesn't kill me (etc. etc. and all that jazz).
Music: Some favorite artists are Gary Allen, Cobra Starship (classy), Rolling Stones, Queen, Webber, the Beatles (duh), Brad Paisley, Brooke Frasier, Liliana Rose, Feist, Lilly Allen, the Thorns, Marcy Playground, Jason Mraz, Regina Spektor and etc. The list goes on. I believe music is an important way for the regular individual to stay in touch with the aesthetic aspects of life.
Books: I believe every girl should read Jane Austen. She's such a staple in female literature that she's a difficult author to ignore. Some classics I still enjoy reading are favorites such as "East of Eden" by Steinbeck,"Fountainhead" by Rand, "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith. Oh, and of course "Jane Ere" by Bronte.
The Movies: FAVORITE t.v. show ever, (which has sadly been canceled), is Pushing Daisies. I love embracing the hipster in me with independent films and most British comedies. I highly recommend "Death at a Funeral". Favorite movies include others such as "Princess Bride", "ten Things I hate About You", "Fantastic Mr. Fox", "The Guard", "Strictly Ballroom", "Sin City" and "300", now also "The Spirit"... So many favorites, not enough attention span. :)
Musical Productions: I absolutely ADORE showtunes. "Jekyll and Hyde", "Aida", "Les Miserables", "Phantom of the Opera", "Wicked", "Hairspray", "Annie Get Your Gun", "Man of Lamancha", etc. etc. Get on it, it's good stuff.
Some favorite quotes/poems: Well, most of them you will see printed in my stories but...
