I am still alive. I know, it's shocking! XD I'm sorry for not updating Black and Blond for almost a year and not keeping in touch with friends/reviewers but, well...
You know that thing when you suddenly look in the mirror and don't like what you see? Well, that was what I was feeling most of this year.
An early mid-life crisis? Maybe. XD
Anyway, sometimes you need to work on yourself and on your life at the same time, so I can't really promise I'll come back regularly just yet. But I'm definitely aiming for a comeback in mid 2014. I need to finish Black and Blond and throw out some one-shots for some new obsessions.
And now, a moment of silence, in respect of FMA ending...AND A MOMENT OF SQUEALAGE AT ROYAI CONFIRMED CANON IN THE THIRD FMA ART BOOK!
...Ahem. Sorry. The rabid fangirl in me got out for a moment.
Who is this crazy chatterbox?
Some people call me Foxglove, some call me Mo, some call me Mayura, some call me Meso and a lot call me...my real name. :D
I'm a fangirl deep down, only the scientist within tries to keep me rooted to reality by ways of canon-pairings and that pesky ever-wavering suspension-of-disbelief. XD
I have the usual hobbies you find with ff.net users along with the occasional dash of human biology. I love to read and like to write, but my favorite past-time has got to be having a good, brain-rotting squeal session with fellow fangirls whenever the occasion may arise. There's something uniting about going "KYA!" over a manga chapter...
If you're still curious (or just bored XD) you're welcome to scroll down through the obligatory quick facts section and wall of quotes.
Now, of course no personality test is 100% accurate, but I found the MBTI got a lot of things right (hermit tendencies and fear of crowds included) so I say, what's the harm in a little fun? XD
Anyway, I'm an INFP.
I usually stick to Korean Dramas when it comes to live-action (Castle is the only western exclusion), I dabble in anime and love manga- there is something about the way a lot of skilled mangaka manage to express emotions so perfectly within those black and white pages. There are a lot of cartoons that still do their creators proud- Danny Phantom, Teen Titans, Gargoyles and Kim Possible come to mind. I also have an abounding love for literature, but my style's a bit more old-school than all the vampire raves of people today- excepting any that appears in any book by Terry Pratchett. Because anything written by him is automatically awesome.
I'm a British-Turkish dual citizen. Although my locator insists I'm in America (or Ireland, or New Zealand) I'm actually currently in Turkey. We just migrated this year.
Things I Can't Stand
Things I Love to See:
Some people don't like mentioning religion on the web. I agree. I don't like mixing in serious real life stuff with the fun of ff.net. But, there are some things you need to say to keep your peace of mind.
I'm a Muslim. Sunni, hanafi, to be precise.
Now, just in case some severely misinformed person stumbles across this, I feel obligated to quickly point out four things:
There. Statement, explanation and clarification over and done with. Thank you if you read that. I'm sorry if it sounded brusque. Like I said, prejudice feels horrible and the thought of it makes my writing tone tense up.
Now, we may move past the serious shade of real-life and onto the internet.

The (Not-So) Great Wall of Quotes
A famous man once said: We create our own demons. Never mind who the famous man is.
Iron Man 3
Anyone can give up. It's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.
Humans are the kind of beings that can’t put their pain into words.
If you did it for a good reason, you'd do it for a bad one. You can't say 'we're the good guys' and do bad-guy things.
Enduring and forgiving are two different things. You must not forgive the cruelty of this world. It's our duty as human beings to be angry at injustice. But we must also endure it. Because someone must sever the chain of hatred.
After the rain falls, the earth hardens.
He who does evil to another, has done evil to himself.
A scholar who produces nothing is like a cloud that does not rain.
Discretion is the greater part of valor.
If you're not for us, you're against us. Huh. If you're not an apple, you're a banana...
People who play with woman heart go very bad place!
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering, "What the heck happened?"
And, apparently, a quote I'm very well-known for:
(Really guys? Really? Am I this neurotic? XD)
