Hi! I'm IndusLotus2001. I was born in Texas, but my origins are Indian, which is partly where my profile name comes from. My dad suggested the Indus Lotus part when I was creating this account, and the 2001 part comes from my favorite show at the time, Full House (the American show, not the Korean drama).
My profile picture/avatar is a picture from my favorite movie, The Princess and the Marine, starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar as US Marine Jason Johnson and Marisol Nichols as Bharanian princess Meriam Al Kalifa. It was a made for TV movie about Jason Johnson and a few fellow marines who went to Bharian for duty for a year. While there, he met 17-year-old Meriam, part of the Bharanian royal family. They fell in love and escaped to America together. Once there, Jason was stripped of all his honors and was demoted to Private, the lowest rank of the Marines. Meriam was granted temporary asylum by claiming return to her country could result in harm inflicted upon her by her family. She attended a hearing and was allowed to stay in America with Jason, to whom she was married to at that point. This was a true story, and it really inspired me. It was beautiful story, until I read up on it and found out a day after their fifth wedding anniversary, Jason and Meriam, after doing so many illegal things for their love, got divorced. This makes me question if love really exists, but it is still my favorite movie.
Favorite color: Blue
Favorite number: 4
My star sign is Aries, but my personality fits with Pisces better. I'm telling you this because I do, to some extent, believe in Astrology.
I currently live in New Jersey and am in my second year of college (and maintained an unhealthy addiction to both reading and writing fanfiction for almost eight years, lol). I am a Communication Arts major with a concentration in writing and a math minor, but I am hoping to switch to a psychology major and double minor in creative writing and math.
I live on campus and love it, but I come home every weekend to work since I've had no luck finding any on-campus jobs and don't own a car (my best friend goes home to work too so he gives me a ride since we live in the same town). I work at a restaurant as a hostess and server and the majority of our guests come in to watch sports which is good since I love watching sports.
I play soccer and tennis but I'm not coordinated enough to play anything else (or get serious about tennis when I had the chance). I love soccer, but I was never good enough to have the chance to get serious like I was with tennis.
I also tutor middle school and high school kids in math, French, and English. One of those kids is my younger brother, who is my only sibling, and my first priority.
My brother and I were born in America, but my parents were born in India, so they raised as Hindus. As I got older, I started to question the existance of God. The first time I questioned this was when I was 6. When I was 12, I decided I wasn't sure if I believed in got. When I was 14, I learned there was a name for people who questioned God's existance: Agnostic. At 15 however, I decided I didn't believe in God at all, and to the great chagrin of my mother, I identify as an atheist. I don't judge people and I don't like confrontation, but if anyone has a problem with that, then you are a very close minded.
That being said (the fact I'm atheist), I don't hate religion, nor do I dismiss anyone else's beliefs. I will debate about it if people wish to do so, but I do not directly shoot anyone down. People should believe what they want, and if God is what they believe in, that's fine. I should also be allowed to believe what I want, including the belief that God doesn't exist.
Again, I don't hate religion, I just don't like everything it stands for, like the fact that the Bible says it's a sin for a man to lay in bed with another man. One of my best friends is gay and my roommate is lesbian, and I love them both. I'm not going to pretend to understand the strife of people who faced racism (because even though I'm a person of color, besides when I was 6, I never faced racist comments) or the strife of people who dealt with homophobic people (because I'm heterosexual), but I'm an ally, and I do not stand for any comments that can be counted as bullying.
I also want to say, I'm literally OBSESSED with Christmas. It's my favorite holiday. I celebrate with my very best friend and his family every year, and even though I am not religious, I still love the holiday. I love Thanksgiving because after Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday season (also, I love Thanksgiving because I love food lol), and I love how everyone is so happy and trying to spread Christmas cheer and there's holiday music on all the time. It makes me feel so happy, practically giddy and puts me a good mood for the entire month of December. On the other hand, I am pretty depressed every year after Christmas is over, but I try to cheer up because I know it'll come again.
I spend all my spare time watching youtube videos, experiencing new music (I'll listen to anything, even country and classical, even though, generally, alternative rock and pop punk are my favorite genres), catching up on TV shoes (I also have an unhealthy addiction to TV dramas and Netflix), and writing whether it be fanfiction or a novel I hope to one day publish as a book.
I love editing people's work because I am a stickler for grammar and spelling and know exactly how phrase things perfectly. I am a Beta for several of my fanfiction friends, and also edit people's original work. I am not as good at editing my own work, so I'm looking for a Beta. You can PM me if you're interested in me being your Beta or if you want to be my Beta. I'm currently writing a Battle Royale, which has been my favorite book since I first read it in sophomore year of high school.
I love to read, write, and listen to music, but I am never happier than when I am hanging out with my friends.
I have a youtube account, but I'm not going to post the link on here because I never upload anything; I mainly made an account several years ago to make playlists of my favorite music before I had an iPod, and now I maintain it to subscribe to my favorite youtubers. My current favorites are Ryan Higa (nigahiga), Kevin Jumba (kevjumba), Troye Sivan, Tyler Oakley, Hannah Hart, Maimre Hart, Jenna Marbles, Zoe Sugg (Zoella), Joe Sugg, Marcus Butler, Casper Lee, Connor Franta, Dan Howell (Danisnotonfire), Finn and Jack Harries, Grace Helbig, and Megan and Liz. Megan and Liz are singers, but the rest make funny videos, except for Troye Sivan, who makes funny videos and sings a little. I'll watch any video with Grace in it, she's my favorite youtuber and has been since I first discovered her. My best friend and I are going to Playlist Live this November, hoping to meet some of our favorite youtubers. So far, Tyler and Troye said it's very possible they'll be there.
I have a twitter account, though I'm barely ever on it:
I have a Tumblr account that I'm almost always on:
The e-mail associated with this account it email@example.com, but my current primary e-mail is IzuWolf23@gmail.com.
I also have a fictionpress acount. My name on fictionpress is SapphireofMystery.
And now for my interests:
Favorite Bands/Artists: Paramore (Hayley Williams has amazing range), Fall Out Boy (both their old and their new, comeback stuff), Panic! At the Disco, Green Day, Coldplay, My Chemical Romance (hate that they broke up), Maroon 5 (my absolute favorite band), Rise Against (hoe genius are their songs?!?!), Linkin Park, Ellie Goulding, Ariana Grande, Avril Lavigne, Mika, Tegan and Sara, T.a.T.u, the Beatles, Simple Plan, OneRepublic, Skillet, Florence and the Machine, Lily Allen, Sara Barellias, P!nk, Eminem, Kelly Clarkson, Justin Timberlake, Imagine Dragons, The All-American Rejects, Nickelback (don't judge!), The Fray, Train, Lady GaGa, and Evanescence.
I used to be really into Taylor Swift, and truth be told, I still am, but not enough that she makes it to my favorites list.
I also love Regina Spektor, but also not enough to make it onto the list
I also like Big Time Rush. I'm not a boy band kind of girl, but they're all pretty cute and they do have catchy songs. They didn't make it on the list because they are too mainstream pop for me, much like another one of my favorite artists, Katy Perry, and like I said, I like everything, but I'm mainly into alternative runk and pop punk.
I also like One Direction's music. I'm sort of embarrassed, but they do have good music, and when all is said and done, despite everything, Harry Styles actually has a really good, powerful voice.
I also love the voices of some Glee stars, though the show has gotten really bad. Apart from the obvious (Lea Michele), I also love the voices of Matthew Morrison, Chris Colfer, Darren Cris, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris, and Becca Tobin. I hope some of them release albums past the Glee soundtracks like Lea did.
I love K-pop too, my favorite groups being U-Kiss, MBLAQ, and Super Junior. 0330 by U-Kiss will forever be my favorite K-pop song, which I heard in my junior year of high school.
Like I said, when it comes to music, I like everything, but the artists on the list are my favorites
My top 14 favorites songs (because the number 15 is too mainstream for me):
1.) Second Chance by Shinedown
2.) Brave by Sara Barellias
3.) Same Love by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
4.) Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion
5.) Marching On by OneRepublic
6.) Timber by Pitbull ft. Ke$ha
7.) You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift
8.) Follow Your Arrow by Kacey Musgraves
9.) Let it Go by Demi Lovato
10.) I Write Sins Not Tragedies by Panic! At the Disco
11.) True Love by P!nk
12.) Popular by Mika ft. Ariana Grande
13.) Reflection by Christina Aguliera (I love the movie version from Mulan too)
14.) Oath by Cher Lloyd ft. Becky G
Favorite Books: Battle Royale by Koushun Takami, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky The Host by Stephenie Meyer, The Sands of Time by Sidney Sheldon, , The Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler), the Charlie Bone series by Jenny Nimmo, the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth, the Wings trilogy by Aprilynne Pike, the Lioness Quartet, the Circle of Magic quartet, and the Circle Opens quartet by Tamora Pierce, anything by R.L. Stine, Beloved by Toni Morrison, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, the Percy Jackson series and the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordon, anything by Charles Dickens and A LOT MORE!!!!
I like too many books to keep track of all my favorite and the list will grow but that's what I can remember right now.
Favorite TV Shows (again this a lot so this list is what I can remember now): Merlin, Doctor Who, Sherlock (BBC Sherlock, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Grimm, Once Upon a Time, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Baby Daddy, Melissa & Joey, Pretty Little Liars, The Nine Lives of Chole King, Jane by Design, The Lying Game (yes I know those three were cancelled), Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, Ravenswood, The Fosters, Bunheads, Gilmore Girls, Parenthood, Switched at Birth, Young Justice (why on Earth was this cancelled) Justice League and JLU, Teen Titans (the original I mean, Teen Titans GO! is stupid in my opinion), the Vampire Diaries, One Tree Hill, Glee, Gossip Girl, 90210 (the spin-off, but maybe one day I'll have the patience for the original series, Beverly Hills: 90210), Degrassi: TNG (again, maybe one day I'll havepatience for the originals, Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High), White Collar (I LOVE Matt Bomer to death and Tiffani Thiessen is a good actress too), and more I can't remember!
It is my intention to get into The Originals (spin-off of TVD), Torchwood, Suits, Game of Thrones (once I finish the book series), and Supernatural.
Favorite Movies: The Princess and the Marine, Camp Takota, Spud, Catching Fire, Breaking Dawn Part 2, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Anastasia, Magic Mike (teriible movie, I only saw it for Matt Bomer), She's the Man (I LOVE Amanda Bynes and I love every movie she's been in, I just can't remember them all), Just Go With It (I HATE Adam Sandler, but Jennifer Aniston is my favorite actress), EVERY DISNEY MOVIE EVER (not Disney Channel, I mean actual Disney)
I'm not really much of a movie person in that, I watch a lot of movies and love them but will most likely never put them in a 'favorite movies' list. I usually don't like movie adaptations of books, except the ones in the list above (LOTR is one example, probably the only example, of where the movie was better than the book, and I HATED the Twilight series, but Breaking Dawn Part 2 was a good movie; so was Cathing Fire, which is why it's on my favorite movies list even though The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins isn't on my favorite books list).
I guess I should re-do the movies this way.
Favorite Disney movies (in order): The Lion King (not 1 or 2, I count this as both cuz I love both just as much; however, I do separate Lion King 1 1/2 from this), Frozen, Tangled, Mulan (1), Tarzan
I love the rest of Disney movies too, but the rest don't really fit into the list
After Tarzan would be Pocahontas, but only for the music; I don't actually like the movie for it to be on the list, which is why I didn't list it
Favorite Anime/Manga: Fruits Basket (I love this story), Death Note (my second favorite), Guaken Alice, Kodocha (hilarious), Bleach (Tite Kubo's characters are genius), Naruto, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh, Yu-Gi-Oh GX, Digimon, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, Pretear, Ouran High School Host Club (again, hilarious), Get Backers (Did you have pleasant dream? lol), ToraDora, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (my favorite)
There are more (i.e Mermaid Melody, Lucky Star) but they don't make it to the list.
I also used to LOVE Pokemon and even though I don't watch it anymore, even to revisit like I do with others I used to only watch as a kid, like DBZ, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Digimon, I still play the games and would LOVE to live in the Pokemon world
Favorite Video Games: Kingdom Hearts series, Legend of Zelda series, Tales of the Abyss series, Assassins Creed series, Young Justice Legacy, Yu-Gi-oh Seven Trails to Glory, and any Pokemon game (my current favorites being Pokemon Snap, Crystal and X)
I'm not much of a gamer, but I do play the Portal series, the CoD series, Skyrim, and the Halo series, but not as much as the ones on the above list
My favorite sports and teams (in order):
Top Teams: Giants, Broncos, Dolphins, Jets, Ravens, Bengals
Bottom Teams: Vikings, Texans, 49-ers, Eagles, Steelers, Cowboys, Patriots
Top Teams: Rangers, Cannucks
Bottom Teams: Devils, Penguins, Sabres, Flyers, Lightning, Bruins

Favorite players (retired and current): Steffi Graf, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal
Least favorite: Andy Murray
Top Teams: Machester United
Bottom Teams: Liverpool
Top Team(s): Yankees
Bottom Teams: Mets, Red Sox
Favorite animals: I'm not a huge fan of animals; I'm scared of most animals besides insects (I guess I'm not typical girl), but I do love horses, and even though I've never seen them up close, and probably will be scared if I ever do, I think wolves are beautiful and foxes are cute.
I have a deep, deep love for the musical comedian Bo Burnham. I am his biggest fan. I know everything about him and I'm not usually the starstruck, crush on celeberity kind of girl, but Bo is different. I honestly think he is a true genius and one of the funniest people alive to boot. He released his most recent comedy show 'What' for free on youtube and Netflix.
I got to see the show live in New York once and my best friend (who introduced me to him), our other best friend, and I got to meet him that day. Meeting Bo Burnham with my two best friends? That was truly the best day of my life!
My favorite quotes:
"The true measure of a man is not by how he lives but by how he dies." (This is a quote a friend of mine named Sean and I made up) (I'm actually using this quote in a story on my fictionpress account called Adoption)
"Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."
"I'd rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone at night."
-Helen Keller (This woman is my hero!)
"If I did [know what I was getting myself into, then what would be the point?"
"I don't know what I believe in. I just know I haven't found it yet."
-Marisol Nichols (lines from the movie The Princess and the Marine)
Favorite lyircs (currently):
For those days we felt like a mistake,
those times when love's what you hate,
we keep marching on.
-Marching On by OneRepublic

Stories in progress: Only four of my stories are really finished. Well, five, but I was thinking of adding an epilogue to one, so I consider that half finished. But the one I'm currently working on will definitely be finished, I love it too much to stop.
Title: Playing the Player
Category: Battle Royale
Filed Under: Movie (Even though Battle Royale was a book first!!!! WTF?!?!?!) (I do want to see the movie though. My friend and I saw the first five minutes and it was completely different, so we want to see what else changes).
Summary (on the site): "It's simple. Just a game. We hold hands, hug, kiss, do all the normal couple stuff you and I both hate. The first person to fall in love loses." He smirks back at her. "Alright Chigusa, you're on." Shinji and Takako play a game in order for Takako to exact revenge on Shiroiwa High's player. AU, Program not part of the story.
Full Summary: Takako Chigusa always hated player Shinji Mimura, but never more than when he broke the heart of her best friend. For revenge, she decides to play the player, get him to fall in love with her, and then break his heart. But she gets more than she bargained for when she starts to fall for him instead.
Pairings:Takako/Shinji with side pairings of Hiroki/Kayoko and Yutaka/Izumi, and some surprise pairings
For those of you who read this all the way through and got to the end, congratulations and thank you.
