Author has written 4 stories for Song of the Lioness, Anne of Green Gables series, and Naruto.
Let there be love...
Just a little about me:
I love reading.
I love budgies and looking at scenery and sketching and dreaming and laughing
and music and sleeping in and chocolate and hugs and proper grammar and clothes and
people and kindness and being random and life and a lot of other things (including run-on sentences) .
I love to write, though I'm still learning how.
thanks for dropping in...
I like to keep things in perspective, I think that if everyone did this more, there would be less depressed people. Who knows?
Favourite foods: my mum's lasagne and every flavour of ice-cream (who doesn't love ice-cream?)
Favourite books: There are many... the Harry Potter series. I also love Tamora Pierce, Lord of the Rings, Artemis Fowl, the Bartimaeus Trilogy, Oscar Wilde, I Capture the Castle, The Messenger (Markus Zusak), Lés Miserables (Victor Hugo), To Kill a Mockingbird, and many others, even some Twilight. Don't like non-fiction much, though I've recently discovered a love for autobiographies. By the way, for those who were disappointed in Breaking Dawn: sign this-
Favourite movie: LotR is the best movie series in my opinion. My favourite 'old' movie is 'The Philadelphia Story'. But usually it's the most recent good movie I've seen. My memory when it comes to movies is very short, but I loved Eagle Eye and Amazing Grace. I also love those martial arts Asian movies- Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, House of Flying Daggers, Hero, Jackie Chan's movies
Music, music, music- Regina Spektor, Sara Bareilles, Oasis, Queen, Duffy, Ella Fitzgerald. and many more.
Tamora Pierce: Alanna/George, Jon/Thayet, Buri/Raoul, Kaddar/Kalasin,
Ersken/Kora, Roald/Shinko, Daine/Numair, and AlanII/LianneII. I think I have them all. Yep.
Twilight: Jacob/Leah, Seth/Nessie, (there are so many options! to explore) Check out HM Grayson's stuff!
Harry Potter: Canon, I love Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione. Scorpius/Rose, Scorpius/Lily II and Teddy/Lily II for the Next Generation. Though I have a love for Dean/Luna, who I'd hoped would end up together, but sadly didn't. But I'm convinced something happened out there at Shell Cottage.
Naruto: Canon's all very well and good... but crack is so much more fun. and I love Shikamaru/Sakura, Shika/Hina, Gaara/Sakura, Naruto/Sakura, Tenten/Shino, Anko/Iruka, Anko/Hiashi (don't believe even that one- check out Marry My Father Please) Shino/Ino, and many others. Believe it or not, I have read some great fics about these different couples
The Vampire Diaries: LOVE this show- and there are so many awesome pairings- Damon/Elena, Stefan/Elena, Matt/Caroline, Tyler/Caroline (Tyler has to return and redeem himself heroically, dammit!), Bonnie/Jeremy, Katherine/Stefan... the list goes on. Stefan/Caroline friendship.
Firefly- favourite TV show of all time- Inara/Mal, Zoe/Wash (tear!), Simon/Kaylee. also River/Jayne if it's done well.

and I wanted to share this poem I found with you-
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.
"Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn."
“Who, being loved, is poor?”- Oscar Wilde
“If you are not too long, I will wait here for you all my life.” ~Oscar Wilde
"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." — Oscar Wilde
~The fears that live inside of us, whatever they are, and however they manifest, prevent us from living our highest potential, as individuals, and as contributors to the human race. If we consciously and vigilantly transmute those fears through compassion for others, and for ourselves, we will know what it is to live a peaceful existence on this planet.~
"If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing."~ Benjamin Franklin
~It's very tempting when you really want to be with someone to settle for much, much less -- even a vague, pathetic facsimile of less -- than you would have ever imagined. Ladies, please, keep your eye on the prize. Remember always what you set out to get, and please don't settle for less. If you can't do it for you, do it for everyone else: These bad guys are able to exist because there are a lot of women out there who allow them to.~
The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.- Aung San Suu Kyi
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return" Toulouse ~Moulin Rouge
No one should die because they cannot afford health care, and no one should go broke because they get sick.

~Sometimes on the way to a dream you get lost and find a better one."~
Now... I think I've bored you with my profile long enough.
I've sort of taken a long hiatus from writing, since I really don't like my stuff and need new inspiration and time. And I'd much rather be reviewing the wonderful stories some people have up. But I do want to get back and improve my writing.
~someday it will happen. Everything is going to be alright.~
