Author has written 13 stories for Teen Titans, Avatar: Last Airbender, and Harry Potter.

If you are reading this, then I assume that you are extraordinarily bored. I can't imagine that reading about how tall I am or where I live or things my friends have said would in any way work towards alleviating that boredom. So, instead, I will offer you up some alternative suggestions.

Obviously, you must enjoy reading at least a little or you wouldn't be browsing around a fan fiction site. Maybe you have read everything available for your particular universe/characters/pairings/ships, or perhaps you have reached saturation with cliche, poorly written, knock-off pieces. Whatever the reason for your boredom at the moment, I suggest finding a book and giving it a chance.

I have lots of favorite authors, and would generally say that anything written by them is well worth the time to read. So, off the top of my head, and in no particular order, some of my favorite are: Ayn Rand, Alexander Dumas, Stephen King, Charles Dickens, J.K. Rowling, Pat Frank, Victor Hugo, J.R.R. Tolkien, H.P. Lovecraft, Michael Crichton, Frederick Douglass, Neil Gaiman, Stephen Hawking, Richard Matheson, C.S. Lewis, George R.R. Martin, Edgar Allen Poe, and Orson Scott Card. I am sure there are many more I would recommend, but that is what I came up with at the moment. If poetry is more your thing, (I am not a huge fan, but do enjoy it occasionally) then you might try Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Butler Yeats, Robert Burns, Robert Frost, and Emily Dickenson.

In case you want a more specific recommendation than just an author, I will list some of my favorite books as well. I won't say that the ones listed here are my Top 10 or anything, because that would imply that I have sat down and ranked them. This is just what I happen to come up with at the moment, stuff that I find myself reading again and again. Here they are, in no particular order.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind - Just got done with this one. It's a bit weird, but I liked it.

Anthem by Ayn Rand - One of my absolute favorites. Seems like I read this one every few months. Of course, it is pretty short, but still. Fantastic book.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas - Action, adventure, love, betrayal, vengeance. What's not to love?

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens - Yes, it is very long, and parts of it are tedious and boring, but everything fits together so nicely in the end. Sydney Carton is one of the most compelling characters in literature.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie - An all time classic

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

The Stand by Stephen King

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

Harris and Me by Gary Paulsen - Absolutely hilarious. One of the funniest books I've ever read.

Lord of the Flies by William Golding

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Children of the Dust by Louise Lawrence

The Giver by Lois Lowry

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

On Writing by Stephen King - Excellent book. If you are a writer, and are looking to improve, then I would highly recommend this book. Definitely a must read for any authors out there.

Elements of Style by Strunk and White - A fantastic reference book for any writers. Short, concise, and instructive. Another must read that I would highly recommend for any writer.

That's all I can come up with at the moment. If I think of an amazing book, or come across a new one, I will update the list.

So, now that you have something to read, you shouldn't be bored anymore. What's that? You are tired of reading? You would prefer to just kick back and watch a movie? Ok, then. In that case, here's a list of some of my favorite movies. If there are any you haven't seen, then a trip to your local video store is definitely in order.

1408 - Very creepy.

Pan's Labyrinth - Really great if you don't mind subtitles. (Or are fluent in Spanish.)

Frailty

Rocky - In spite of the laughable sequels

Dead Poet's Society

Grave of the Fireflies - It's an anime, might be hard to find, but undoubtedly worth a look. One of the saddest movies I've ever seen.

The Shawshank Redemption - One of the best of all time.

Silence of the Lambs - Quite possibly the best movie villain of all time.

Million Dollar Baby

Iron Giant - One of my favorite animated movies.

Shaun of the Dead - Greatest zombie movie of all time. No question.

Unforgiven

The Green Mile

To Kill a Mockingbird - The one with Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. It's every bit as good as the book.

A Christmas Carol - The 1984 version with George C. Scott as Ebenezer Scrooge. Puts all the other versions to shame.

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy - I actually liked the movies more than the books, and that hardly ever happens.

The Princess Bride - Ok, is there anyone who hasn't seen this?

We Were Soldiers

Tombstone

Dodgeball

Glory

The Matrix - Just the first one. The other two were total crap.

Last of the Mohicans

So, that's all for now, I suppose. If you have any thoughts, ideas, criticisms, etc. on any of my stories, or on any of the authors, books, or movies I recommended, I always love receiving feedback. Feel free to leave a review or send a PM or email (coeus_ff@yahoo.com) any time. I will generally respond within a day or so.
