RPG Character: You remember that NPC librarian you had to run three errands for before she let you have the information you needed in that old RPG you played back in the 90's? That's alright, no one remembers me. In any case, I've been busy since then. Joined a mage guild and got my associates degree so I can actually use these vasts stores of knowledge for something instead of employing teams of desperate adventurers to do my bidding. Things would be great except I discovered that I faint at the sight of blood... and most other dangerous and unpleasant things. Thankfully I am a star at going unnoticed, being quickly forgotten, or talking in full paragraphs until people decide I'm too boring to pay any attention to; so I am a perfect fit for undercover work. Incidentally, my memory is terrible. I carry a bag of holding filled with reference materials to ensure I know which incredibly powerful magic sword I'm talking about at any given time.
The Real Me (sort of): The Video below is of My Dad's Band. Yes, that was the name of the band at the time. Now they are Commodore Fish Dish. I dare you to look them up on facebook. Yes, my dad plays in it, he's the one on the far left. More videos on Daily Motion and YouTube. I use the same username, if you are curious.
I've got a very dry sense of humor, and am mostly a solitary figure in real life. Somewhat abrasive, I do not suffer fools lightly. This is my natural personality, but since this is Gaia and role-play is the name of the game, I'll just let all my inhibitions go. I'm addicted to fan fiction. I hate poor grammar, but I'm not perfect either. I am a Wiccan, and I don't like people trying to convince me I will go to hell. I don't believe in hell. You may go there if you like - if that insults you see above comment about my personality.
I have been published in an anthology three times. No, I do not distribute my original work on the internet! However, I have written some fan fiction with what I consider surprising success. I am the author of "Dark Phoenix" - a take off on Harry Potter that was begun before the sixth book was published and (eventually) details the last two years of Harry's schooling my way. The other major project I wrote is a Star Wars piece called "Father to Son" an exhaustive exploration of what the best-case scenario would be if Luke had gone with Vader at Bespin. I finished it longhand years ago and never typed the ending - Goddess help you if you started reading it. I started writing that when I was in eighth grade and finished it in three years. My speed has not improved. I am now 23 years of age.
I write because I like it, it is fun and a way to escape stress. I love talking about plot lines and possibilities even when I am not very familiar with the fandom in question or am discussing original work. Bouncing wild ideas around - with or without the intention of writing them out - is highly amusing. I do not steal and adhere to a strict personal code of ethics regarding plagiarism and such offenses.
