All the things you never wanted to know about me and MORE!

Hello!

My name is Mary, and I'm a 19 year old student of art. I hope to one day be an illustrator for children's books!

Besides drawing and painting, I like knitting, writing, reading, and watching movies.

Some of my favorite books include The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and pretty much anything by Tolkien! I also really love Victor Hugo, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Les Miserables are two other favorites. I also love A Separate Peace, The Lord of the Flies, The Chrysalids, Percy Jackson, and Harry Potter, of course.

My list of favorite movies looks a lot like my list of favorite books! Les Miserables again, the Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame are favorites, as are Tangled, Atlantis, Frozen, Peter Pan, Stand By Me, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, and (secretly) Pacific Rim, but you didn't hear that last one from me...

I don't watch much TV, but I did watch Vikings, up until Athelstan died (sorry for the spoiler...) then I threw a fit like a 4 year old and stopped watching it because he was my favorite.

My favorite artists are David Christiana, Alan Lee, Brendan Wenzel, Van Gogh, Pierre Auguste Cot, Odilon Redon, Leonardo, of course, and Bernini.

I find Greek and Norse mythology very intriguing and I like talking and learning about them.

I also spend (probably) copious amounts of time on Broadway. My first show was the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Since then, I've seen Nice Work if you can Get It, Romeo and Juliette (for the soul purpose of meeting Orlando Bloom, which was magical), Peter Pan, Peter and the Star Catcher, and Les Mis too many times because it is my favorite. I've also met most of the cast of each musical, most notably Orlando Bloom, Kathy Rigby, Jason Forbach, Matt Rosell, Kyle Scatliffe, and Ramin Karimloo, for all you broadway buffs. All of them were very nice! I've also seen Beauty and the Beast (twice), Jersey Boys, and Les Mis (more times) locally off broadway. Can you tell I like musicals?

I'm always up for a 1x1 RP, if you feel like dropping a line, and I like talking to new people and making new friends! I'm Elfsongs on Tumblr, and Eldalire on AO3 so come say hi!
