I’m just another person online doin’ my own little thing… I love music and would love to learn either the electric guitar or the drums so I could join a band, even if it never gets beyond the local scene. Some of my favorite bands are Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, AFI, Skillet, Seether, Two Cellos, The Glitch Mob, Dead Mau5, and Evanescence. I also realllly love anime, especially in Japanese with English subtitles/captions. My ultimate career goal is to be the one behind the scenes editing the English subtitles/captions so people like me can enjoy the numerous shows in their original language, they way they were meant to be.
My hobbies include writing (from poetry to short stories), drawing (doodling and perfecting my free-hand copying), swimming (river just across the road helps lol), and finding mistakes in many of the books I read (lol joking, I don’t really look for them, they just stand out to me like a hooker in the Vatican XD). I like taking walks in the woods, typically alone because no one else wants to go and my family talks to much for me to enjoy any of what nature has to offer to those wishing to partake of it. One thing, well two things really, that I find amazing and beautiful that others feel concerned about the fact I’m so fascinated (possibly infatuated with lol jk) with are the moon and fire.
Fire is… well when I look at it I see something wild and free like a spirit that is full of an undeniable power and serenity that inspires both awe and respect in the most brazen of men. In the moon I see this similar serenity but with a calm that resonates a power beyond our imagining and grasp… the only word that comes to my mind when gazing at this beautiful celestial body is “Mother,” or, to be more precise as like a title, “The Mother.” This is something I’ve never really talked about but now that I think about it I think that I ought to at least write this down so I can align my thoughts into something more cohesive…
But anyways, that’s just a little bit about me, stay tuned for the next installment!! ^-^
“What eyes are these that see
The pain I know in my innermost soul?
What eyes are these that see
The twisted strides of my kindred,
Led on in the wake of toys unbridled:
Arrow, bolt, and sword tip?
Yours… aye, yours,
Straight run and muscled spring,
Soft on padded paws, sheathed claws,
Weapons rested for their need,
Stained not by frivolous blood
Or murderous deceit.
Face to face, my mirror,
Reflection in a still pool by light.
Would that I might keep that image
Upon this face mine own.
Would that I might keep that heart
Within my breast untainted.
Hold tight to the proud honor of your spirit,
And hold tight to my side,
My dearest friend.”
Book One – The Dark Elf Trilogy – Homeland – Forgotten Realms – by R.A. Salvatore

When a girl says, “____, I want to be a writer,” they look on. When she says, “I think being a girl is overrated and dramatic,” they tell her to get over it. Finally she says,”____, I’m a wanna-be transvestite but still really like guys more than girls,” they say stop doin’ drugs and ignore them for what seems like forever….. anyone else see something wrong here?
I don’t know why people through such a fit over being short; being short is awesome!! I mean, everybody practically has to bow down just to talk to you, like you’re royalty or something. Also, short people can get away faster in places where there are a lots of objects crammed together, like, say, an obstacle course. There are so many things we shorties can do, like if you’re really short you can be a full-time jockey or the top of the pyramid on your schools cheer-leading squad. Or you could be the best pokemon trainer EVER!! LOL, now you see? We’re not short, we’re FUN SIZED 😀

Derek is your average teenage guy, a little reserved and shy, in high school. His family is upper-middle class and they live in a suburban type community in a quiet “small-town.” He likes to read and is usually drawing or sketching something, so he’s not exactly Mr. Popular at his school, so he tends to get teased at least once every few hours. In the world he lives in the economy sucks so everyone is suffering, if only slightly, from financial issues, including his family. With this stress and the stress from school weighing on his shoulders, Derek takes to hitting inanimate objects in his room (like the wall, bed, etc.) and whenever he’s out alone walking in public (like trees and rubble in abandoned buildings). It’s on one of these walks that he runs into Shintin-su; whose history is what they are trying to uncover throughout the story. She remembers growing up in a large village, the center for learning during her time, with her parents and younger brother and that the main kind of transportation was either on foot, on horse-like animals that looked strangely like a large Dobermans, on flying Doberman-horse-like creatures with scaly skin, or with one of the rare element-wielders who could bid any one element to their will.
As for the characters Shintin-su pretty much tells you everything in the bold part about herself. She’s been around so long the history texts don’t remember the time she grew up in. But basically the back-idea is that instead of moving forward the world reaches a certain point of peace and serenity and then something happens and everything goes “kablooey” so to speak, and repeats the general overlay as the previous cycle. The animals and whatnot are constantly evolving so, like the chicken evolved from i think it was the t-Rex, the t-Rex evolved from something else from a previous cycle and so on and so forth. Derek is basically an ordinary kid, 16 yr. old sophomore, who just happens to be able to see her even when she doesn’t want to be seen.
Blake’s ancestors founded some crazy underground organization that knows of Gaira’s “kind” and their existence and either traps them for something or simply tries to exterminate them because they felt that they are a threat to man-kind.
Shintin-su Gaira and Derek Blake are the only two characters mentioned. Also, I need help coming up with a title for this story, so please drop me a line!! PEACE!! <3<3<3<3
So a lot went down this weekend: there was a wreck on the way to prom; I finally got to see my old bestie Kara from freshman year; I won blackjack and 50 bucks along with it at after-prom; couldn’t walk straight with them drunk simulator glasses on; almost ran my friend over with a golf cart with them doofy things, surprisingly none of the cones though; finally flopped in bed a little befor 3am Sunday morning; got woke up at 11:30-ish; watched the new Iron Man around 2pm; spent the afternoon avoiding my mom while looking for the perfect gift for mothers day; and chatting it up with William, the guy I have this ginormous crush on and am still trying to figure out whether we’re going out yet or not. So all in all it was a pretty awesome weekend, still a little tired from prom but it was awesome 😀 <3<3<3<3<3
