Author has written 7 stories for Teen Titans.
ALL STORIES HAVE (at least hints of) ROBIN AND RAVEN PAIRING!
'Chess Game' -Now sadly completed - 7 Chapters. Thank you to all that reviewed, I am truly grateful.
'No Choices' - Sequel to 'Chess Game'. Chapter three is now submitted after my hiatus
'Home' - OneShot, Result of a rather strange daydream.
'Ice Queen' - Short story. Chapter Two is up, the snow maiden will be appearing soon (poss. next chapter)
'Id'- 2 Chapters-Short story. Inspired by my psychology homework. Who says college's good for nothing?
'Love or Desire' - 4 Chapters- Short story, still setting the scene. Things should start happening next chapter
'Memories' - 3 Chapters- Short story, this is just cheesy but very fun to write. The plot is completely unoriginal, it's been used in TV shows since the beginning of time.
Hello everyone! I apologize for not updating for the last few months. College has been hell. Thankfully my exams are now over (till the summer at any rate) and I am now getting used to my time being mostly my own once again. This means updates. And you thought I'd given up on my stories...
As always thankyou to every one who's reviewed, all feedback is treasuredas long as it has an actual reason (emphasis on the 'reason' part, I hate you is not avalid response).
Also I have to mention Evilsangel, you are extremely persistent and I thank you for it. If not for you then the third Chapter of 'No Choice' wouldn't have been finished in Feburary.
On with the profile (you can skip this bit if you wish, I can't come up with a better explaination of me)...
Hello. I am 'A Quest of Scales'. I am female, currently 17 years of age and was born in the chinese year of the dragon, 1988.
I pratically live for stories, at the moment I'm going through Teen Titans. Robin and Raven pairings are definately a favourite, although the occasional Beast Boy and Raven is acceptable. In case you can't tell Raven is one of my favourite characters, her sarcasm is brilliant. I also have a thing for the bad guy, Slade is very cool! Hence my first posted story - Chess Game. My stories since then are more Raven and Robin ones although hopefully not bad ones. I've also recently developed a strange liking for Harry Potter fanfics. It's slightly disconcerting, I don't particularly like the books (just my opinion, they're not bad but nowhere near good enough for all the praise they get) so I don't know why I like fanfics. Oh well, my favoured pairing is Severus Snape and Hermione Granger.
If you asked someone what I'm like you will probably hear two very different points of view. The first would be the vast majority of people who don't actually know me. They will mostly tell you that I'm very quiet, academic and polite although rather unpredictable at times. A wall flower who always thinks before she acts and will probably end up somewhere boring.
However the few individuals I trust enough to call friends will tell you a rather different story. They tend to say I'm competitive, have a bizarre sense of humour, slightly arrogant, overprotective and has a temper but a good listener and advisor. Conversely they'll also tell you I'm extremely predictable. In the words of my only sister... "Mum! She's going to kill me!" annoying little tattle-tale...
Finding out who'll give you what view is surprisingly easy. Food. It means a lot to me, I have a great metabolism and so am often hungry (despite eating more than all of my family except Dad, my peers accused me of anorexia until I was 16). If I offer anyone some of my food I either have just met them for the first time and I'm trying to be very nice or they're my friend... yes I know I'm strange.
I'm also a voracious reader. I was reading Stephen King novels by the time I was eight because I got bored of Goosebumps (my teachers almost called in social services for that one. Apparently 'IT' isn't appropriate reading material for young girls). It's not uncommon for me to read a 300 page book in a day... this means frequent trips to the library (or would if they'd ever get anything new...). By the way I think Terry Pratchett is hilarious, see bizarre sense of humour.
My one biggest pet hate is those 17 year old boys who'll go round on a 50cc moped and think they're hard. Have you heard those things? They sound like a broken hairdryer! I haven't ridden anything as small as 50cc since I was six for crying out loud! Sorry, I forgot to mention I'm a bikers daughter. I currently own a 250cc Yamaha.
Besides from the above I have only a few other idiosyncrasies. One of which is completely obsessive behaviour. Throughout my child hood tapes of my favourite movies would break because I'd watch them again... and again... and again. Past the point where I not only knew the scripts off by heart but quoted them. This has calmed down slightly... but I still know most of the 'Last Unicorn' off by heart and if anyone wants to know exactly how to defeat any boss or challenge in the N64 games 'Zelda the Ocarina of time' or 'Majora's Mask' you only need to ask.
However I think my weirdest aspect is my imagination. People think having a vivid imagination is a great thing... NO! Especially when it won't leave you alone! As I'm writing this I can quiet clearly see a blue dragon on top of a mountain behind my computer. I live in England! Can someone please explain to me how I can see a mountain? I'm not even out doors!
... Here there be dragons
Yep... I see things. It's quite common to find me starring out of a window watching the dragons fight (the gold ones are just big bullies). In case you haven't noticed one of my obsessions is dragons. Actually any myth will do, I'll quite happily listen to the nymphs as they play in the stream or contemplate how lonely vampires must be, but my preference is dragons. My theory is that every needs the monsters in the caves, not the ones who are out to get you, there are enough humans vying for that job, but the ones who couldn't care less who you are. The beasts that are smarter than you or I, who have lived for centuries and still feel the wind beneath their wings. The ones who could kill you with one breath or talk to you for years. The cave dwellers who live in the sky. To my mind the best words in any language are the ones found on the blank spaces of old maps... Here there be dragons and all sorts of mythical beasts...
To me dragons are stories... people need the dark of the woods... here there be dragons... shall we go and look?
