Author has written 3 stories for Naruto.
FEATURED QUOTE! (Guess why I picked this one to start off my author's profile...)
"I should start writing now. But if I start writing now, when I'm not really rested, it could upset my thinking which is NO GOOD AT ALL." -- from "The Book Report", song from "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown".
Name: Julia "Filatine" (My dad read this and wouldn't let me use my real last name.)
Age: 15 (but most of this writing is from a couple years ago)
Hair: Light brown (has been darkening for years and has passed dirty-blond)
Eyes: switch off between grey and green (mostly green)
Now I shall add: QUOTES! (And some of the random stories behind them!) I'll add more as I think of them. The "My Fics" section is after all this. So just scroll down if you want to scorn all the work I put into this quotes/conversations section.
From me and my friends:
"I deny that I am in denial!" -- Kitty
"GRIMA MUSHROOM!" -- All of us EXCEPT Kitty.
"Look, a three-headed man on a donkey!" -- Kitty again. If she can't win an argument by logic, she attempts a distraction. I think she told me once where she got this... but I forget.
"If you throw a brownie at me, I'll throw a muffin at you!" -- Raven, to Shad.
"My mom sent me over to my friend's house with sugar. She must be trying to kill me." -- Me, upon bringing the aforementioned brownies to Raven's house. Yes, there were actual brownies and muffins involved.
"MARMALADE!" -- Shad. Context won't help with this one, as she says it at random times for no apparent reason.
"Monkeys are named Bob. Dot com." -- See above.
"We are the knights who say 'Believe it!'" -- Shad has basically commandeered this phrase. It comes from her hatred of Naruto's "Believe it!" in the dub, mixed with watching "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"/"Spamalot" a few too many times. (A FEW too many times? A FEW?)
"It's shiny and it will kill us all!" -- I picked this one up from my friend Danielle (Dandelion Kawaii), who picked it up from another friend. Then I mentioned it to Raven, who liked it and started quoting it. In short, I have no idea where it originally came from, beyond Dandelion's friend.
"The sharingan only look nice because they involve black, red, and pointy all at once. And they spin. But that's it. . . . Oh, what the heck -- WEEEEEEEEEE! SPINNY!" -- Maddy, in an e-mail.
"Nii-san, don't dodge me, I need my Crayola crayons!" -- Me and Raven. Those who know us have already heard this story. But I'll repeat it anyway! We were in a car, and really really bored. So, after seeing a Nissan drive past us, we started making puns on the names of ALL the cars passing by, i.e. Ford=Fraud. Similarly, Corolla became "Crayola", and a Dodge Ram caused us to yell "Dodge the ram!". Then we decided to string a longer sentence together, and this is the result.
"Maybe she died." -- What we say EVERY TIME somebody (usually Shad) goes missing. Usually followed by planning how to divide up the possessions of the possibly deceased.
"Maybe he was kidnapped by Akatsuki!" -- What we said the one time we DIDN'T say the above. Was followed by plans to rescue the missing Gautam (and in the process kidnap Itachi, Deidara, Sasori, and Kisame's sword.)
"I need Mr. Pointy-Hair!" -- Kitty. She's developed an obsession with my Kiba keychain, because... his hair is pointy.
"Kisame's like, 'I have a big sword. Fear me.'" -- Me, commenting on a set of Akatsuki chibis.
"I need to practice my fangirl squeal for when the fillers end." -- Me again. (Aren't I such an interesting person?) Seriously, I do need practice if I hope to compete with Shad... who'll be squealing for Deidara.
Ok, I admit I wasn't there for this one. But from what Shad told me, I imagine it went something like this:
Shad: Julia has a bishie we know now. She told me she likes Sasori.
Shad: He's in Akatsuki. You know, the organization Itachi's in? And he uses puppets. He even turned himself into a puppet!
Kitty: Is he a sock puppet?
Kitty: Well, he should be! Now Kitty and I argue endlessly about the values of sock puppets vs. marionettes. Here's a conversation from our school trip:
Kitty: Sock puppets.
Kitty: Sock puppets!
Me: ...Sock puppets!
Me: You said marionettes!
Kitty: Well you said sock puppets!
Me: I chose to say sock puppets so you would say marionettes.
Kitty: Can we change the subject? Um, how about that weather?
Me: Yep, sure is a lot of it! (traditional response to the weather question) A related phone conversation between me and Mdog:
Mdog: I still have to make thank-you cards for all you guys.
Me: sympathetic "Oh"
Mdog: I'll probably just draw you all chibis again.
Mdog: Yes, that means you'll get your chibi Sasori.
Me: EEEEEE! (my attempt at a fangirl squeal)
Mdog: ...Sock puppet.
Mdog: Wow, this is fun... And now for something completely different. Here's another conversation I did not get to witness myself, but heard secondhand. If you're wondering what it was about... I have no idea. But this is what was said:
Raven: The more, the merrier!
Shad: Do you WANT me to chuck the GameCube at your head?
Raven: Believe it! Does this go under "Quotes" or "Conversations"?
"when i heard that i was like, 'OMG! julia must be so devistated!' and hannah was like, 'Yeah, we cried...' (me)'you dont count...'
then she hit me and gave me that glare she gives me..." -- Part of the PM Raven sent when she was spoiled about the fate of Sasori.
My Fics (Yes, you finally got past all those quotes!):
KONOHARRAKIS: My first fic. This started as an attempt to convince my friends to read Dune. But it has developed a life of its own. If only it would develop a mind of its own, and maybe a pair of working hands, then it could write itself and save me the trouble. I've heard it's normal to dislike one's own early work, and I think that's already starting to happen with me and KONOHARRAKIS. So I guess I might as well declare an official hiatus. Even though I'm on vacation, it still seems too troublesome to work on. I'll try to work on some of my other ideas/plot BUNNIES!
The Naruto Playlist: A side project. It's a collection of Naruto songfics, or will be once I get around to writing a second one.
Orochi's Movin' Out: Some randomness that came out of absolutely nowhere. KazeKage Shad coauthored the first verse and was essentially my beta for the whole thing. We're contemplating making it into a series. If we do so, the next installment will be "Leaf Town Girl". Which might end up as "Sand Town Girl", we're still trying to decide who it'll be about. I'm still angry because an essential pair of parentheses were edited out of the first chapter, so the sound effects were ruined.
