Guten Abend! Danke für Ihren Besuch! Ich heiße BlueMilagro... Okay, so, I'm not a native German speaker. :) Let's start with English, shall we? It is, after all, what I write in. :)
What I said, and want to say, is:
Hello! Thanks for visiting. My name is BlueMilagro and I looooove to write. :) My adoration of fanfiction, specifically, originally stemmed from my severely irrevocable love of filmmaking, and I wrote my first fanfic in 1999 at the age of fourteen. It was about Star Wars; that was the year Episode I came out, and my fanfic, regarding the reunion between Obi-Wan Kenobi and his long-lost kid sister, was TERRIBLE. But it was a start, and that's what counts. I started writing and never looked back. Fast forward another fourteen years, and here I am, with two screenplays under my belt and aspirations of being a screenwriter. I've never fooled myself into believing I was anything special -- while my writing is admittedly good -- excellent, in fact -- I will say I've read other fanfics on this site that have been so good they've made me hate my own work and wonder what in the h* I'm even doing with my life. That's just the knee-jerk, though: those stories are the fire that fuels me to be an even better writer, myself. You Sherlock fans will go read "Alone On the Water" by MadLori and know what I'm talking about ("Sure. *sobs* Fine. *wails* I didn't need my heart, anyway. Just take it. Take it and douse it in petrol and set it on fire and eat it, for Chrissakes.")
So I adore films. That's clear. :) And below, you'll find my Top Five list of all time favourite films, for those interested. My favourite actor is Gary Oldman, although I also greatly admire the works of many others, as well; Benedict Cumberbatch, outside of being one of my top three biggest celeb crushes EVER, is an AMAZING actor, and I see him really going places. Jeffrey Combs is another actor I'm just crazy about. He is one of the most remarkable actors of our time, and he is just horribly under-appreciated, in my opinion. If you ever have a chance to see him on stage as Edgar Alan Poe, take it from me -- DO IT!! It was the best night of my life, and when it was over, I got the rare opportunity to meet him; I can tell you he is one of the SWEETEST men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I can't wait to see more of his work.
Anyway, back to films: I also love classic old films, the black and white ones where every single little thing -- from the sets to the costumes to the mise en scene to the actors and the way they move and even the way they deliver their lines -- everything is a symphony to me and it's like watching a sunset. Warm and familiar and beautiful.
(But Miss Milagro, who are your other two celeb crushes? You mentioned Benedict Cumberbatch as one. Who are the others? Robert Downey Jr and Hans Matheson, in case you were wondering. :P)
Music is a gigantic inspiration to me. I am an incredibly visual person, and music fires my imagination, so when I hear a song with music or lyrics that really remind me of something from a story I'm working on, it sticks with me. I create whole playlists dedicated to each story, and these "soundtracks" are an integral part of my story-writing process. And I love sharing this with you. :) In many of my stories you'll find I've done just the same; at the end of each chapter I'll leave tiny notes with songs and things, if applicable, for you to check out, if the mood strikes you.
Lastly, there is one thing I'd like to mention. I really would be more than happy to add you on Facebook, if you'd like, but if so, please PM me and I will give you the necessary info. My one request is that, when you send me the friend request, please make a note in there about this website. "Hey, I'm a reader on FF.N!" I tend to delete friend requests of people I don't immediately recognize, unless they remind me. You know, safety precautions. :D Thanks!
Before we get on to lists and such, I'd like to use this section for
