A bit about me
Residence: Florida, USA
A bit about me:
I have been to 40 of the 50 U.S. States. I have also been to Toronto, Quebec and British Victoria, Canada; and to several Caribbean islands. I have been to maybe three or four South American countries and I have been to at least two Central American countries, Mexico being one. I have now been to the eastern hemisphere, visiting England, France, Switzerland, Spain and Italy. Needless to say, I love travelling.
My family and I are what I call Winter Chasers. In December, while northerners come south fleeing winter, we head north chasing the cold. I love skiing and snowmobiling, but can't snowboard to save my life.
I love history and I love museums. I can spend all day at museums and still want to go back for anything I've missed. I especially love Natural History and Aerospace museums.
My favorite animals are dinosaurs (especially Tyrannosaurus;) and wolves. I liked wolves long before it was popular to like them (i.e., WAY before all those fantasy novels and the such). In fact, the wolf is my primary spirit animal.
I am descended from Portugal, Italy and Spain on my mother's side and France and Russia on my father's side (On my father's side the line has to be traced back a few hundred years to get there though.)

Recommended Books (This is a list of books I grew up with that I thought might be interesting to read. They are either not 'mainstream' books, or they were, but are not anymore and are now not really well known to the younger generation of readers)
Quotes (Some are quotes to live by, some are funny or quirky. Other I just like for no real reason)
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand."- Albert Einstein
"Murphy's Law states that whatever can go wrong, will go wrong; my law states that even what can't go wrong, will go wrong."- Me
"When something can go wrong and does, the odds are high that everything will go wrong at the same time."- Me
"Since my customary farewell would appear oddly self-serving, I shall simply say... Good luck."- Spock
"Friendship must dare to risk, Counselor, or it's not friendship."- Jean-Luc Picard
"Things are only impossible until they're not."- Jean-Luc Picard
"Fate - it protects fools, little children, and ships named Enterprise."- William Riker
"You'd be surprised how far a hug goes with Geordi. Or Worf."- William Riker
"If there's nothing wrong with me... maybe there's something wrong with the universe."- Beverly Crusher
"You wanna be the one to explain when the Captain says 'Engage' and we just sit here?!"- Geordi LaForge
"Freedom is the right of all sentient beings."- Optimus Prime
"I know you're desperate to get back to Cybertron, but you could have at least waited for the rest of us."- Optimus Prime
"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."- Sherlock Holmes
"After a three-month processing flow (a little lube job, a waxing, and maybe getting the tires rotated), this baby is ready to do it all over again. Unparalleled in performance, the shuttle is what every astronaut has ever dreamed of having - and the most accomplished spacecraft NASA has ever produced."- Leroy Chiao
"The development of the Soviet Buran shuttle, which flew only once and without a crew, nearly brought the Soviet program to its knees. The French Hermes and Japanese Hope spaceplane designs never lifted off of their respective drawing boards. Our soon-to-be-scuttled shuttle stands as a symbol of American ingenuity, know-how, persistence and greatness. No other vehicle past, present or currently contemplated for the future even comes close to her capability and elegant beauty."- Leroy Chiao
"From our orbital vantage point, we observe an earth without borders, full of peace, beauty and magnificence, and we pray that humanity as a whole can imagine a borderless world as we see it and strive to live as one in peace."- William McCool
"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."- John F. Kennedy
"Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life. Beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."- Lt. Rorke
"By exploring other worlds we safeguard this one. By itself, I think this fact more than justifies the money our species has spent in sending ships to other worlds. It is our fate to live during one of the most perilous and, at the same time, one of the most hopeful chapters in human history."- Carl Sagan
"Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere."- Carl Sagan
"From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it's different. Consider that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every 'superstar,' every 'supreme leader,' every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand. It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."- Carl Sagan
"I'm actually just reading Yes Please by Amy Poehler, it's really great. She talks about how one of the qualities that she finds in common with people who create things and are successful at creating them is ambivalence about the result of their effort. So they're passionate about what they're doing about the act of writing, but they're not terribly concerned with what's going to happen because of it. Which doesn't mean that you can't care about your future, but it means that your participation in the thing that you love doing does not hinge on whether it works out for you financially or career-wise or not. You just do it because you love it, and then you try to make it work. So I think that's important for young writers, to just not obsess over the future and what they're going to do with it and if they're going to be able to make a living and the dream of getting a book published. It's okay to have dreams, but you should love the writing more than you love the dream, I think. So that's my basic advice; to write a lot and make sure that you know why you love it."- Veronica Roth (good advice for aspiring authors)

Chasers- I'm going to leave this one as a wildcard, so no summery. However, I GUARANTEE it's unlike any Jelsa you've ever read, and maybe unlike any fanfiction you've ever read. It'll be a fun read and you may even learn something

Characters (Warning may contain spoilers)
About my Land Before Time Characters:
Blade- Blade is an adult Tyrannosaur who before he was born, was transformed by another Stone of Cold Fire. He is Zero's cousin, though he is faster and stronger, with more spikes on his body. A lot more reserved than Zero, he won't hold back when the need arises. Blade teaches Littlefoot and his friend advanced tactic and fighting. One of Blade's favorite moves is bringing his arms in front of him, forming an X, and swiping them down. As his claws hit each other, sparks are sent flying into an enemy sharptooth. While his opponent is distracted, Blade leaps into the air; crashes back down in a ducking position, crosses the even smaller gap to the enemy sharptooth in a single leap, and quickly stands up before it, doing the same X swipe as before, but now making contact. Blade sees the greatness in Littlefoot and his ability to do incredible things and be a great leader despite his young age.
King- Was a tan-colored adult Tyrannosaur with red stripes on his back. He was the first sharptooth aside from Chomper and his parents to join the Great Valley. King taught Littlefoot and his friends to understand sharpteeth language, and he thought them basic tactics and fighting. He is best friends with Streakclaw, and later Blade and Littlefoot as well. Sacrificed himself to stop Seeker.
Sawtooth- He is an older Tyrannosaur and originally Seeker's mentor. He wanted to defeat the Great Valley for the sharpteeth's survival, not for personal gain. Sawtooth joined the Great Valley when Seeker betrayed him and has remained with them since. He has often been able to provide information and tactics for the valley's dinosaurs to use.
Seeker- A corrupted and evil Tyrannosaur, he is responsible for starting the war. Leading his forces on with promises of a better home (the Great Valley) and countless amounts of food (the valley dinosaurs), he is ruthless and unrelenting, from twice kidnapping Littlefoot's friends to betraying Sawtooth and trying to burn them all alive. Seeker is finally defeated when King sacrifices himself to prevent him climbing to safety.
Zero- A Tyrannosaur who was transformed before birth by another Stone of Cold Fire. He is Blade's cousin, and though not as strong, he is just as brave. Zero died of blunt force trauma to the head, trying to save Littlefoot and Ali, and his body was swallowed up into the ground. His death caused Littlefoot's first transformation. Later, along with Littlefoot's mother, he prompts Ali to use the power of the Stone of Cold Fire to cause Littlefoot's second transformation.
Streakclaw- At first a high-ranking Velociraptor in Seeker's forces, he was actually waiting for King's order to turn over a new leaf. He, along with Zero and several other sharpteeth joined the Great Valley, turning the tide of a battle. Streakclaw is a valuable asset to the Great Valley as he knows almost of the maneuvers the Mysterious Beyond dinosaurs can pull.
Grey Fin- A Carcharodon carcharias, Grey Fin looks just like Tip-Nose. However, don't get the two confused. He is responsible for saving Littlefoot, Ali, and Elsie from Tip-Nose. He helps out whenever possible, though it's harder for him to stay in the Great Valley's waters because he is a saltwater shark. He was transformed by the Stone of Cold Fire to be larger, closer in size to the previously much larger Tip-Nose.
Scythe- A young teenaged Velociraptor and one of the youngest sharpteeth in the Great Valley, second only to Chomper. His young age and inexperience often annoy some of the old fighters buts Scythe just tries to help and for that they are thankful, even if they don't always show it. Scythe first met Littlefoot and his friends after the end of the original war and has great respect for the young longneck. Scythe might be a bit clumsy and even a little goofy, but that is just because of his inexperience and the others will often help set him straight.
Ravage- Seeker's brother, a menacing silver and black Tyrannosaur. He is notorious amongst even the sharpteeth, as is perhaps stronger then his brother. Unlike Seeker, Ravage seems to be driven only by anger and hatred, with revenge for the turn out of the original war being a huge motivator for him.
Harbinger- A green Tyrannosaur who helped Littlefoot during the original war, protecting him and Ali from Spinosaurs, though remaining nameless at that point. Not much is known about this mysterious sharptooth. Originally, he was more ruthless, even willing to risk Ali to save Littlefoot the sailbacks, though his time with other, more docile dinosaurs, such as Ruby and her parents, seems to have softened him as he'll now consider lives at risk over his current mission.
Amber- A young female Apatosaur who comes to the Great Valley with her herd. Unlike her older twin, Drake, she is frightened by the concept of war and distrustful of Littlefoot and friends, finding sharpteeth in the Great Valley to be highly suspicious. Her attitude often leads her to brash actions, but deep down she means well and cares greatly for others.
Drake- A young Apatosaur who is fascinated by the orginal war. More coolheaded and calmer then his younger twin, Amber, he is often the voice of reason to settle down the impetuous young female. Unlike Amber, Drake is more trusting and though shocked, quickly accepts the Great Valley's sharpteeth. Drake likes making new friends and enjoys helping others in need.
Leatherback- Originally a Velociraptor, he is transformed when a piece of the Stone of Cold Fire thrown by Ravage accidentally hits him into a volcano. In his new form, he is a giant dinosaur that can only be described as a living volcano, with body made of magma and cooled lava plates. Though unable to communicate in the conventional methods, he can share experience with others who were heavily affect by the Stone of Cold Fire, such as Littlefoot and Blade. Leatherback towers over other dinosaurs, being able to stand tall over the Great Valley. He can attack with fire from his mouth or eyes and electricity from his wings. Despite his massive size and weight, he can fly using the large wings on his back. Leatherback is named for his wings, which were originally mistaken for his back.
Senka- A pale orange female Tyrannosaur who was in league with Ravage's team. She infiltrates the Great Valley and gains everyone's trust, though Blade remains suspicious. She betrays them, helping Ravage take the valley. However, she shows true remorse when Ravage reveals that he doesn't intend to let the Great Valley dinosaurs live, and eventually helps them get free when Ravage betrays her. Though the valley's trust in her is mostly restored, neither Blade nor Shorty or Amber fully trusts her; though she works diligently to redeem herself to everyone.
Branimir- A very large swimmer much similar to Elsie. He and his fast-biter crew show respect for Littlefoot and the Great Valley dinosaurs. Their loyalties are to the Mysterious Beyond, not Ravage. Branimir prefers to stay with Ravage's group to keep an eye on him rather than fully joining the Great Valley dinosaurs. Branimir and his team try to support the Great Valley whenever they can as they believe them to be better for the Mysterious Beyond than Ravage, though the must still be wary of the dark sharptooth and his loyal followers. One of Branimir's weaknesses is his inabily to turn fast or swim very swiftly due to his large size.
