About

Music: "Façade," from Frank Wildhorn's "Jekyll & Hyde"

Hello. My name's Raven- good to meet you, whomever has randomly happened upon my profile. I'm just a random twenty-one year-old flute player/viola//violin player/first soprano studying Music and English in college with even more random interests, as you shall soon see below.

Well, I only just started getting on Gaia a little while ago, so this summary will undoubtedly suck.

RAVEN'S SUPERLATIVES

Favourite Hobbie(s)- Writing/Drawing/Singing

Favourite Colour- Black

Favourite Book- "Edgar Allan Poe- Complete Tales and Poems"

Favourite Song- "Libera Me" from Maurice Durufle's Requiem, Opus IX

Favourite Movie- "The Elephant Man"

Favourite Musical- "The Phantom of the Opera"

Favourite Actor- John Hurt? Perhaps Stephen Fry, these days. (No, wait... it's definitely Stephen Fry, these days.) 8D Even so, there's a number of other greats whom I love.

Favourite School Subject- English, I'd say . Or choir.

Favourite Television Show- "Jeeves & Wooster" FTW!! (Probably the only TV show I'd consider using chat speak for. XP)

Other Random Obsessions- Poe and his writings (obviously,) Joseph Merrick and his bit of available artwork/writing (again, obviously,) Erik from "The Phantom of the Opera," Sydney Carton from "A Tale of Two Cities," Othello from "The Tragety of Othello," Stoker's "Dracula," Dumas' "Man in the Iron Mask," Hugo's "Les Misérables" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," some aspects of the "Harry Potter" series, Goethe's Faust, Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde," dark literature in general, Oscar Wilde and his hotness/his writing, most anything with Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie (as a pair, in this instance), Stephen Fry's magnificence in general ("gorgeousness" may be more appropriate), the study of genetics and bodily/facial deformities, tenors -swoon-, the study of psychology and the human mind, Holocaust memoirs (especially that of Elie Wiesel, whose book Night I've gotten autographed), singing opera/musical music, often using dark elements such as death (i.e., Dido's Lament), though I care to sing others as well- wistful music is good, too (Aprez un Reve?) as well as happy/sappy music (O Mio Babbino Caro!) and... that's all I can think of at the moment.

Feel free to comment on my suckish profile! ^^ Random friend requests will be denied, and random mail not replied to. Also, I cannot STAND internet slang (except when I use it, because I'm a damn bloody hypocrite!) It's just wrong, okay?



Thanks so much to everyone who donated when my account was hacked!

RANDOM QUIZZES

Your Personality is the Rarest (INFJ)

Your personality type is introspective, principled, critical, and sensitive.

Only about 2% of all people have your personality - including 3% of all women and around 1% of all men.
You are Introverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Self-Judging.

How Rare Is Your Personality?

Your Inner Muse is Melpomene

You are most like the muse of tragedy.

While you aren't depressed, you don't shy away from sadness.

Although you do tend to be gloomy, you have a sensitive side.

And this sensitive side helps inspire and help others.

What Muse Are You?

Me too! I think it's quite elegant. In fact, that's what I called it.

I think they're better than you're giving yourself credit for. Our roleplay is hands down one of my favorites of all time. I've always found it interesting and engaging and I think other people did, too, since so many people voted on it. If you can tag I'd love to read it. If not, I can wait.

I leave you with the words of Stephen King - "Stopping a piece of work because it's hard either emotionally or imaginatively is a bad idea. Sometimes you have to go on when you don't feel like it and sometimes you're doing good work when it feels like all you're managing to do is shovel s**t from a sitting position."

It helps me when I'm stuck in my writing

No, no, I'm not insulted at all! I am happy to see you writing. I love reading your posts! I would love to rekindle our rp if you're up to it. I was rereading through it the other day thinking how much I missed it.

I've been pretty well lately. I can't complain. My work is still in its slow season for a bit longer so I'm not so hectic all the time. It's a good feeling. How have you been my dear?
